About Barry B.:
10 years of experience

Hello,

My name is Barry Burkhart and I have a large city apartment that I share with my partner and fellow pet sitter Josh, and our small breed dog. By day I'm a licensed financial professional, Josh a retail buyer, and work from home most days. We love our mid day works to the dog parks, and strolls on the city streets. We are open the pet walking, home visits, and sleep overs. We have a vehicle so we can pick up and drop off, or you are welcome to come by our place and check it out.

I believe you pay for what you get. We are not the most inexpensive rate on this site, however, we are a professional service. We carry insurance, we are certified, and we are licensed trainers with combined more than 20 years experience. We have an extensive book of regular customers that will be happy to provide references to the quality of our service.

Rates (please read)
The promoted rate is for dogs less than 30 lbs, and a day is defined as a 24 hour period, extra hours are negotiable. Dogs 30 lbs to 60lbs are $40 per night. If you r dog is over 60 lbs, the price is varies depending on the temperament. Holiday weekends please add an additional $20 per night to the above fees with a two night minimum. Pick up and drop off service can be added for just $10. At the time of booking please indicate if you would like this service added to your quote.

I ask that dogs be house trained or pad trained. It helps if your dog is comfortable with sleeping in a kennel or dog bed for consistency, however, have no problem with them lying in my bed. For dogs that like to pull when walking, I do not like to use harness as this promotes bad habits, however, will use whatever the owner likes. If you ask my opinion as a certified dog trainer, I would say a choker or lead works best. I have not been show training for several years now, however, remain grounded in the fundamentals and look forward to helping you and your dog where I can.

About this sitter:
Hello, my name is Barry and I'm a work from home financial professional. My partner (Josh) and I live off Sycamore and Santa Monica with out small dog Jackson. We help other families when they leave town by watching their pets in our loving home.

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

All of my life, my family kept dogs and cats in the house. Most of my life was spent in the countryside so animals were a part of life.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

No breed preferences, however, if the dog is to come into my house they most be okay with small breed dogs and cats.

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

Yes I own a car and it is parked in the building.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Totally, no problems with that at all.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

Most of the day, I work from home so I get to spend lots of time with my dogs.

Where will my dog sleep?

I have crates and can have the dog in the front room or bedroom which ever is most comfprtable.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

Along the city streets, quite non-traffic baring is possible.

This was Brady’s first stay at Barry’s and it was great! Barry kept me updated all weekend with photos and put me at ease. Barry was also extremely accommodating and understanding when our flight home was delayed. Brady came home exhausted and slept for about a whole day – he had a great time with Barry!

Barry and Josh were absolutely wonderful! My dog felt immediately at ease upon meeting Barry for the first time, which made me feel so comfortable as well. They were flexible with drop-off and pick-up times as well, and overall it was simply a wonderful experience.

I had a great experience with Barry. He kept me updated the entire weekend with how Penny was doing picture updates and all. She must have played a lot because she was exhausted when she got home! She seemed like she had a great time! We will definitely be seeing Barry again in the future!

Barry was very patient about my inquires and waited me even before I accepted the request. Although things changed on my end and I decided to take my dog with me for the one-day trip, I would definitely use Barry's service in the future. Thanks Barry.
