We needed a sitter on short notice and Barbara was able to accommodate us. She really knows and understands dogs. Gave us very useful information. Would use again.

Barara took very good care of our little dog while we were away for a week. She's very knowledgeable and responsible. Romeo came back healthy and happy

What Barbara would like to know about your dog

I always do a health and wellness check with my clients so that I fully understand their pet's needs. After almost 20 years as a PROFESSIONAL pet-sitter, I have no true preferences and certainly NO breed exclusions; I make my decisions on a case by case basis.

When Barbara watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
While the exercise pen is large, certain owners require a more traditional 'walk'. this too can be accommodated. In the nice weather I utilize local beaches and other areas for long strolls.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Most owners bring some sort of bed that their pet likes to sleep in. If not we provide many options both inside and out. In nice weather the dogs can choose between in or out lounging in fully protected areas. If an owner prefers their pet to sleep in a bed, we have 2 lovely daughters who provide that service as well!

Time I'll spend with your dog
My house is a hub of activity throughout the day with my family and pets. I have NO other business, so I am with and around my client's pets all day. My daughters tend to dote on the new arrivals so the only question is 'who gets to play with who'! Your dog will not lack for attention, that is for sure.
