Indy had a great time at Barbara’s. He is so happy and ready to play with her dogs. Thanks for taking such good care of him.

I felt so comfortable leaving Miller with Barbara. It is obvious how much she loves dogs, and he really loved playing with her fur babies. She kept me updated with many daily pictures and even a video of play time in her fenced back yard. I will definitely use Barbara again!

Life without furbabies isn't living

Let me put your dog at ease! From summer pet sitting to volunteering at my local vet clinic and working at a rescue, a no-kill shelter and a grooming/boarding/daycare, I have seen and worked with dogs from every walk of life. I have experience with all sorts of doggy behavior and have been told I've got the gift of knowing how to soothe a dog. Let me keep your dog's anxiety at bay ...

What Barbara would like to know about your dog

Is your dog active? ( Dogs that live here are VERY active due to their age, if your dog is more of a couch potato or older than 6-7 years old and settled this may not be the household for you! But we can still give it a try.)
Does your dog show any aggression towards other dogs?
Has your dog ever bitten ( playfully or otherwise)?
What is your dog afraid of ? ( separation anxiety, loud noises, vacuum cleaner, plastic bags, being picked up??)
Is your dog potty trained? Crate trained?
Any medical things I need to know?
Tell me one thing about your dog that makes him/her happy that I can do.

About Barbara's Home

When Barbara watches your pet

If your dog requires walks on leash, there is a nature trail and park not far away. If your dog enjoys chasing after toys, I will be happy to throw toys inside or in our fenced yard. Cuddle time on the couch or floor is always welcome and I'll be sure to follow your house rules so your pup doesn't get confused. Have a puppy that's still learning? Let me know what you are working on and I'll make sure to keep it up so you don't have to start from square one again.
Have a scent dog? I have experience setting scent trails to keep them active.
Have a herding breed? I've got plenty of doggy brain games to stimulate them.
Wether they require ten minutes or four hours of play time, I'll accommodate your dog's unique needs.
* All dogs staying with us overnight will be crated for bedtime to ensure their safety unless other arrangements are discussed prior to their stay.
