Our dog Leia stayed with Barbara last summer for a few days. Barbara sent us pictures and kept us updated on Leia's stay with her. We're looking forward to her service again this year for our annual trip. We feel 100% comfortable with leaving our dog in her care. Thanks again Barbara, it feels great knowing we have someone like you around to watch our pet.

Barbara took wonderful care of Homer, both body and spirit, during his multi-week stay. She has great judgement, calmness, kindness, generosity, and good sense. Homer enjoyed excellent nature-excursions and company with other dogs. I enjoyed great peace of mind and excellent communication.

My two dogs have had a wonderful vacation week with Barbara. They were both happy to see her again when we dropped them off. They knew she’d take great care of them. it was a great vacation for them too.

When Barbara watches your pet

I take the dogs to Ponkapoag Pond, Powers Farm, Blue Hills Reservation, and to visit my parents and their toy poodle, Moose if pet parents are okay with it. I spend a lot of time gardening during the spring and summer. In the winter, I still walk the pups unless the weather is severe. I take the pups with me to drop off and pick up my husband from the train station and I play with them and cuddle with them all day while I work on school work.
