About Barbara

I create a loving atmosphere for your pup to feel loved and comfortable while you are away.
My large backyard makes it idea for all dogs to chill under the trees and shade or hang out in the middle and enjoy the warm sun. Plenty of greenery in the yard for "dog business" time if need be.

Experienced in handling small dogs such as Boston Terriers to active dogs like a Labrador, experience and love handling bully breeds like an American Pitbull as well. Have trained 4 dogs total including how to sit on corners before crossing the street!

Love to play with dogs from soft play to stronger play, depending on the dog's level. Love running up to 7 miles at once with a dog or biking if they are comfortable. Plenty of toys and two dog houses for privacy.

Home a lot of the time due to flexible work schedule and can guarantee plenty of interaction with your loved pups.

Does your buddy like to be scratched on their special spot? Maybe tummy rubs are their thing? Do they like to run around in circles without fear of running into a wall? Then my backyard and comfortable home is the place for them.

Let the party experience keep your dog happy and healthy while you are busy with life!

For a home away from home, come bring your furry friend to The Woof Hut!

Barbara was a wonderful host. I would definitely use her again.
We are very happy leaving ou Lab Tessie with Barbra. Either for a week or just over night.
Barbara did a great job
I was really happy with Liam's visit with Barbara! He's a timid dog who needs lots of TLC. I was glad that Barbara allowed Liam to sleep on her bed! She went out of her way to make Liam feel comfortable. She was also very responsive with replying to text messages. I highly recommend Barbara as a pet sitter!

Our Lab Tessie loved her stay with Barbara & Bret. When we picked her up, Tessie was happy to see us but didn't really want to leave. Now that a great dog sitter! Barbara & Bret communication with us was fantastic. We will use them again.
Bret was great.
Barb and Bret were super accommodating for my dog, Roxy. I was really nervous to leave her for 2 weeks straight while I was traveling, but they cared for her like she was their own and sent updates with pictures. I would highly recommend them and will definitely continue to use them in the future!

Brett was amazing and our pup loved Papitas (their Boston Terrier) . They were very responsive to any questions and accommodations to the set date. We really appreciated their kindness and flexibility!
Our puppy, Harry, always enjoys his stay here. He has space to run around and enjoys playing with Pepito (owners dog).
Bret and Barbara were great. This was our first Vacay experience and were nervous until we met Bret and Papitas for the meet and greet. Our two guys had a wonderful experience. Bret responded to my texts quickly and sent pictures. They were really nice when our flight was delayed and we got the dogs late, even didn't say anything about our forgetting their canned food. Will happily use them again to take care of our guys.
Thanks!

Barbara and Bret are great hosts for our pup. We've left him in their care twice now and they have been great to deal with. They give us updates and send us pictures to let us know that our pup is having a good time. We would not hesitate to use them again!

my dog and i are repeat user/guest of bret. i love bret. my dog duke really loves bret and loves staying with him. i used to spend $85 a night for him to stay at Wag Hotel... one night i was staying at an airbnb in portland where i was paying $39 a night for me while i pay double for my favorite little pitty pit...whats wrong with that picture?!?!

duke always comes back to me tired and dirty from all the romping and playing. its fantastic. when i pick him up he comes home and sleeps for the next 24 hours. thats how i know he had a good time!

i used bret's services for short vacations as well as quick stays for when i am busy or as of late (getting ready to move). my only complaint is that bret is not coming with us to portland.

highly recommend!

They are great hosts! Bella loves going over and I always feel comfortable letting her stay with them :)
Bret was a fantastic host! He was really flexible with timings, and was understanding when my flight was delayed and I was late in picking up my puppy, Jambo. Jambo seemed to have a great time with Bret and their dog, Papitas. Papitas was very friendly and from the photos, it seemed that they become really good friends in such a short time. I would definitely leave my dog with Barbara, Bret and Papitas again! Thank you for taking care of Jambo!

My bulldog had a great stay with Barbara and Bret, they are clearly dog lovers who enjoy hosting dogs. I love that Bret is home most of the day, so I know she had lots of attention. Their dog Papitas is cute and playful, and she even got my 10 year old bulldog to play by the end of her stay!

Marzi had such a nice visit with Brett & Barbara. I would absolutely recommend this couple for your furry friends' "sleepover" needs. This was my first time using DogVacay and everything went smoothly. They were accommodating, friendly and even sent pictures so I knew Marzi was happy. I have told two friends about using this website and trying out Brett & Barbara in particular.

This was my first time using Dogvacay.com. It was very stressful to leave my dog with someone I didn't know, but when I met Bret, I felt good about leaving my senior dog, Willow, with them. Bret and Barbara were great about responding to texts quickly and being flexible about pickup and dropoff. I would've liked it better if there had been grass in their backyard since Willow can't walk very far, but I think she enjoyed her perch on the futon just fine. I felt Willow was safe, comfortable and well-cared for.
