About Barbara

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Drop your dog off for a stay with us to ease your mind while you're away!

My husband Pavitar and I love dogs and we offer a peaceful, clean, dog-friendly home! We are a young couple who have been living in our new home in Randolph for just over a year. I have been working as a professional dog sitter for over a year. Pavitar is a mailman and I am a full-time student in an online program.

We accept all breeds and all sizes as long as your dog is non-aggressive. We sometimes watch multiple dogs at a time. I will always notify you if there are other dogs staying with us but please share any concern you may have prior to booking with us.

We live in a nice neighborhood and have a fenced-in backyard with lots of space for play. We will either take the dogs to a nearby cul-de-sac or to our favorite pond trail down the street.

I have basic dog training skills.

Safety and the happiness of your pooch are our top priorities. I will be home with them every day and so they are sure to get the exercise, food, care, and human companionship that they need and deserve!

I always keep owners updated and will send photo updates of your dog if that is something you're interested in.

I am home almost 24/7 with your pooch and we feel our rates are extremely fair considering the undivided attention and care we offer. We even let your dog sleep with us! :)

Our dog guests are left alone for no longer than an hour or two their entire stay- only if I need to run an errand- something most hosts do not promise.

If you want your dog to be the only dog we have during their stay, we can make that happen.

Once we all agree our home is a good fit for your dog, we will give you a detailed customer-made Guest Survey that allows us to understand your dog almost as well as you do to ensure they receive the best-customized stay with us!

All the pet parents will tell you that their dogs come back to our door with wagging tails, excited for their 5-star vacation and the owners enjoy peace of mind knowing their pooch is having a great time!

But don't take our word for it... book today and let your dog see for themselves!

N.b. We DO NOT accept the following dogs:

If your dog does not have proof of updated vaccines
If your dog is not neutered
If your dog does listen to you (untrained)
If your dog is not housebroken
If your dog rips things up and chews things
If your dog engages in negative behavior to seek attention
If your dog has bitten another dog (or come close to it)
If your dog barks incessantly for attention
If you are the slightest bit unsure whether your dog is friendly or not
If your dog has not been around other dogs recently
If your dog is persistent in pursuing other dogs
Also if your dog is over 30 lbs and has unclipped nails (they destroy our floors)

Please understand this is for the safety and wellbeing of all dogs we take in. We care very much about animals and cannot risk any aggressive behavior at all. Additionally, it is not fair to other dogs under my care if your dog needs constant supervision (i.e. in order to prevent excessive barking, destruction of property etc.).

Barbara and Pav were the perfect dog sitters for our puppy. She's a small dog that was a little afraid of larger dogs, and our dog got to stay a week with another 100 pound dog. Barbara recommended the dogs meet eachother before their week-long stay together--and the dogs quickly became best friends! Barbara and Pav gave us updates every couple of days, took the dogs on some great walks and was very attentive to our 6 month old puppy. You could tell by all the pictures that Barbara sent during the week that our pup was having A Lot of fun! It was even a little hard for our dog to say good by to Barbara. While we were greeting her and petting our dog before we brought her back home, she kept running over to Barbara to give her some kisses too. So so sweet and we're sure our dog will love to stay with Barbara and Pav again. Thanks so much to this great App for helping us find the perfect home away from home for our dog!

Barbara did a wonderful job hosting our dog Boston. She was very careful to make sure he would get along with the other dog, insisting we have a meet and greet with that dog. They had a blast. She noted he was chewing his foot and wrote to me with some concern. (It is a skin allergy that comes and goes that I forgot to mention to her). She sent us lots of photos and I felt confident he was in good hands. I would absolutely send him to her again.

I typically don't take the time to write reviews but I felt that I needed to share my wonderful experience with everyone because Barbara is an amazing sitter. Barbara watched my 16 year old Bichon Frise for 4 days while my family went on a trip where dogs was not allowed. This was our first time ever leaving him with anyone outside of our family and initially I was nervous because I was unsure how he would act since he is a little senile but Barbara eased my worries and she cared for my dog like he was her own. She knew I was worried so she communicated with me every day by text and sending me pictures of him having lots of fun. She was very gentle and loving with him since he is elderly. When I picked him up, he was happy and I can tell he was truly cared for with lots of love. Thank you, Barbara for taking care of our little star like he was your own.

Everything went great from start to finish! Barbara worked with my schedule when arranging a drop off pick up time, which was helpful. I love the fact that she has a guest survey which allows her to get to know the your pet(s) a little better before their stay.

All of my 'poop dawgs' seemed like they had a fantastic time. I'd definetly book with Barb again!

Barbara was wonderful!!! My two dogs just loved their time with Barbara and her husband. Barbara kept me updated on how my dogs were doing and also sent along some amazing pictures. I can't say enough great things about this sitter!!! I'm looking forward to my next time away from home so my dogs can enjoy another stay at Barbara's clean and comfortable home.

Thank you Barbara for taking superb care of our BOSS. We will definitely use your awesome service again soon.
Despite her schedule and mine being a little hectic the weekend we were looking to have our dog watched, Barbara made every effort to accommodate. She sent some pictures of our happy dog at her house and on a walk. When we picked our pup back up she seemed happy and healthy and pooped, which is exactly what we want since she's usually super energetic!

She playes with him and take him out on long walks and let him sleep with her on her bed at night . So sweet of her..now I can not trust anyone else except Barbara with my dog . All I could say is that Barbara you are the BEST

This was Parker's second visit to Barbara's within six weeks. He was so comfortable and well cared for that we didn't hesitate to book her again. She kept us informed with pictures and updates and allowed us to enjoy our vacation worry free.
Barbara and Pavitar took such great care of my baby Sarah! Sarah loved them immediately and I felt very happy and comfortable leaving her there. Barbara sent pictures and gave us updates throughout the week, which was great! I highly recommend them if you are looking for a great place to leave your pup while away!

Barbara was very responsive, took tons of pictures, and went above and beyond for my pup's holiday stay with her. She took him hiking at the Blue Hills trail and even got him a toy for Christmas! 5 star treatment, indeed!
Barbara was amazing with our Lucky. She was always very responsive and flexible with our plans. She has a great fenced in yard as well.
