My two dogs had a great time at Barbara's home while I was out of town. I had daily updates with pictures. They had plenty of exercise. I knew that my dogs were safe, happy which made me able to relax and enjoy my vacation away. I will definitely use her in the future!

Our experience with Barbara was top notch. She really knows her dogs and took care of our 2 labs as if they were her own while we were on vacation a plane's ride away from Jupiter. She kept us at ease by sending a number of photos of our "kids" throughout each day that showed them at her home, on walks and at the beach. We were jealous. They were having a better time than ...

Thank you Barbara for taking care of our Dash and sending us pictures during his stay with you. When Dash came back home he was relaxed and happy. We've already booked you again.

We host dogs from only one family at a time except sometimes there is overlap on arrival/departure days. Separation from primary care givers for dogs can be stressful for them. We are committed to providing a calming respite in your absence. We have a 10 year old female Black Lab. Because our ...

When Barbara watches your pet

We live in a nice community for walks. Our FENCED back yard is fabulous for a game of fetch or to take a dip in the kiddie pool. We regularly volunteer at the 'Friends of Jupiter Beach' dog beach and that dog beach is a regular destination for dog clients who have been approved by their pet parents to travel there with us during their stay. We were also the Vice President of the Washington Square Dog Park in NYC in the late 90's. This gave us EXTENSIVE experience in deciphering dog body language and behavior as all breeds and sizes of dogs entered that run on a daily basis being that it was in the heart of Greenwich Village, NYC. If we see an opportunity to work on training with your dog, we will usually do so, in that, a trained dog is a happy (and as important SAFE) dog. A Meet and Greet is required for all new dog clients so please book well in advance when possible.
