My little one Chestnut is a good friend with Barb's dog Whisky. I can see he is happy and safe with Barb from all the pictures she sent. Thank you Barb!

As always, Barbara and her little dog Whisky were great hosts to my pooch. We're so grateful for her.

Barbara welcomed Remy into her home and cared for him as if he were her own. He was happy and contented in her household and enjoyed his days and nights as if he were home. Barbara provided many pictures and details of their days together. I was happy while traveling, knowing all was good.

Remy is a sweetheart getting along with Whisky and the kidlets, human and canine. He is welcome back any time ...

Nana B's Dog House

I have been a pet parent for many years having taken dog training classes with my pups. Our home is on a quiet cul de sac. It is a single level house.

Whisky is my current dog who is young and frisky. He is up to date on all vaccinations and is neutered. He is good with most dogs. I would request that we meet before accepting a vacay date to see how the pups ...

What Barbara would like to know about your dog

To best care for your pup, it is important that I learn as much as possible about your little guy/gal. You can even tell me any problems you may be dealing with so we can know ahead of time.

Please bring the food and treats so tummies don't get upset during the stay. Other treats are available if that is ok with you.

Just like at a hotel or kennel, there is a late pick up charge after 2pm. We are not available for pick up after 9pm.

Also, tell me where your pup sleeps and bring the crate or bed, if possible to allow for complete comfort at sleepy time.

When Barbara watches your pet

We love dogs and your pup will become part of our pack for play and romp. We've got lots of balls and toys but bring your pup's favorite if you wish. We go for walks up the hills and around the town, and play in our yard as well.
