Barbara did a wonderful job with our 2 large dogs! She was very conscientious about their care and provided lots of love and affection. Barbara also took excellent care of our home, leaving everything in tip top shape. She sent pictures every day to let us know how the dogs were doing, and we felt completely confident that we had nothing to worry about while we were away. We highly recommend Barbara!

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.
