Barb was amazing! She wrote a handwritten note about what Madison did throughout each day of her stay. Could not be more happy with the experience and would certainly recommend Barb for anyone that is looking in the LF area

Barb and her 3 Labs were great. Uma seemed to love her week-long visit.

Barb is great with dogs. She is a true dog lover.
Barb communicates very well with her four legged friends; it makes me think of the words "dog whisperer".
It is amazing to watch her interact with her dogs.

Giving the best care next to you!

Pets, especially dogs, have been a part of my family for as long as I can remember. I have always loved animals and cannot imagine our lives withour our canine kids. I am a teacher and am available daily after 3:30 for a dog visit to your home or to care for your pet at my house. We all love spending even more time together on weekends! Our dogs are very flexible! I have ...

What Barb would like to know about your dog

I don't really have any breed preferences. It is more about a dog's personality than the breed. We have owned retrievers, schnauzers, and smaller spaniels.
I would mostly want to know your dog's routine, eating habits, sleeping spot, fears, familiar vocabulary, and sharing ( ie water bowls, toys etc). Our dogs are very welcoming, laid back, and social but would not do well with an aggressive or dominant dog.

When Barb watches your pet

Playing ball is a highlight with our dogs in our large fenced yard. We often play one at a time and will include hide and go seek too! They love that game! Our dogs l;ove cuddle couch time at what we call TV time for 30-60 mins in the evening. We live on at the end of a quiet street so walking down the block here or around the neighborhood at your house depends on what your dogs is used to and able to do. I defer to you to advise me of your dog's walking habits and preferences. I would like to keep their routine as similar as possible whether they are staying with us or being checked on at their own home.
