Chops had a great time with Barbara for his first sleepover! Since this was our first time leaving our dog, and he’s a new rescue dog at that, we were nervous... but Barbara made it so stress-free and we just knew he would be comfortable and happy with her after our meet and greet. When we arrived to drop Chops off, she had a selection of toys and treats for Chops to enjoy, which ...

Loving & Professional Caregiver

I have over 4 years experience working with dogs in a professional setting and I've been around dogs my whole life! My professional experience around dogs includes being the manager of a busy dog daycare/boarding facility up North as well as for working for a dog-walking business. I worked in environments where we had anywhere from 15 up to 50 dogs a day and offered a very unique "just-like-at-home" boarding service as well as ...

When Barbara watches your pet

While your dog is with me I promise to treat him/her as though he/she were my own.... which means all the activity & stimulation and fun he/she may enjoy, and of course just as many pats and cuddles as well! I have been known to spoil any dog that has been in my care, but of course I will follow any rules you'd like me to stick to when caring for your pup.

Since I am still relatively new to the Kingston region I am excited to get out and explore new hiking areas/parks. Some spots I like to frequent regularly include:
- Conservation Area park
- Kingston Mills Waterway/Old station Rd.
- Frontenac Provincial Park

But I'm also happy just to take your dog for a walk in the neighbourhood or go to the park down the road for some fetch/play time.

I love to end my days snuggling up with a good book and a tea beside the fire place, so the more snuggling your dog enjoys, the better for me! :)

Since I don't have any of my own dogs living with me at the moment, I can guarantee that your dog will be my main focus and will be getting all my attention when he/she is in my care. Let me know how much updating you'd like when we're together, and I'll be sure to check in as often as I can.
