Quick to respond and very friendly. Came over and met the dogs twice so they would be very comfortable and familiar. She provided text updates with a picture and left a detailed notes of when she fed the dogs when she walked the dogs and when she gave the dogs their meds. I felt very comfortable knowing that my dogs were in good hands. I will definitely be contacting Barbara again and I highly recommend ...

I treat animals like family!

I love spending time with dogs and cats, and am knowledgeable in aspects of feline behavior and training! I am happy to house-sit while I take care of your babies so they feel safe staying in their own home. I have been working with animals since 1997 and have my degree in Vet Tech from Columbus State including experience with companion animals as well as horses, cattle, goats, llamas & alpacas, pigs, etc. I was ...

What Barbara would like to know about your dog

I need to know if you have ever had any troubles with your pets having aggression or biting. Also, does your pet exhibit any possessive issues over food or toys? If you have multiple pets, do they get along well? I also would like to know any medical history that you have concerns about - any prior surgeries or injuries I should be aware of.

When Barbara watches your pet

I am happy to involve the animals in appropriate play in order to keep them mentally stimulated. I'm also a fitness fiend so going for walks at various paces with your furry friend is right up my ally! Do you have a cat that likes to go out on a harness? No worries. Sometimes a nice, leisurely walk is a welcome alternative! Kitties will enjoy long play sessions with light pointers and toys to chase. I also love to play with dogs using games like tug-of-war or throwing balls and frisbees. Of course, there's always time for snuggles and I understand sometimes a break is required. It's soothing for your pets to get a nice brushing while soaking up the peace and quiet.
