I have known Barb since she was a child. She has taken care of my cats over the years and is very dependable.

Knowing that she has had several pets of her own & has vet tech experience makes me feel even more comfortable .

What Barbara would like to know about your dog

I love dogs of all sizes and adapt well to particular personality traits. I will move slow with dogs that are shy and gain their trust in me. What I like to know about pets are names, commands they know, funny quirks, special feeding requirements, whether they have allergies and what triggers them. Any medications they are on and for what reason. Vet infomation. What they are like towards other animals and people of all ages.

When Barbara watches your pet

I love taking long walks, playing fetch, sitting and talking (engaging) with all dogs. Will help with basic training and encourage appropriate behavior.
