Barbara obviously cares about animals. She provided excellent care to our animals, even when we were going in the hottest heat!
Love that she provided frequent pictures and updates so we didn't have to worry about our pets while we were on vacation.

I have a way with dogs and cats!

"Pet-sitting" sounds like a passive job. My service is active and comprehensive. Not only do I love and show abundant affection to the animals, but I deliver you a house as clean or cleaner than when you left . . I care for indoor and garden plants . .

What Barbara would like to know about your dog

I care for little dogs and big dogs, and almost all breeds. I was delighted to spend a week with an Olde English Bulldog. I've been the pet-sitter for a 90-pound Rhodesian Ridgeback on several occasions. This past year I've enjoyed Havanese, Bichon Frise, Chihuahuas, Airedales, a Labrador Retriever and a Standard Poodle. A splendid 100 pound German Shepherd taught me the joys of this breed. I recently trained a 9-month-old German Shepherd, and my success was due to what I learned from caring for Chewy. After two one-hour training sessions, the owners declare he's a "changed dog." This Winter, 2017 I'm taking care of three Anatolian Shepherds. Two are bigger than I, and the puppy is a real handful. I'm enjoying these dogs immensely. I've cared recently for labradoodle and Standard poodle puppies. Lots of energy, lots of walks, lots of affection.
