Barbara was an excellent host! She sent daily pictures and emails entailing Bear's adventures while I was away. I would stay with her again

Dog B & B (Bed and Biscuit)

I started caring for dogs in my home in Dec. 2016 to pay for my beloved old Poodle Bichon’s medical bills. She had Cushing’s Disease and needed costly human medicine. The following year, she required thyroid med. and one other hormone, along with blood tests. Meds. alone ran $200 a month. Lost her Dec. 2017, leaving me heartbroken.

What Barbara would like to know about your dog

In Dog Flu season, if your dog goes to day care or dog park, please get dog flu shot before I take him as a guest.

Will dog signal whe he needs to go outdoors? Does he or she like other dogs? Knows how to play? Will he transfer bond to new pack leader. Adjusts easily? Can be left alone for over 2 hours or need to have territory restricted? Likes car rides, baths, water? Flea control used? Heart worm prevention? Paper trained?
Name of Vet in case of emergency.

Any bad habits such as barking at every sound, lunges when meeting another dog on walks. Where does he prefer to sleep? Likes to be petted, scratched, belly rubbed? I am a lover of fluffy dogs like Poodles, Bichon Frises, Lhasa Apso, Doodles, Shih Tzus, Havanese and their mixes. Very chill older Labs, Golden Retrievers on case by case basis. No aggressive breeds.

When Barbara watches your pet

Small, shaded yard available at all times. Your fur kid can sit on back porch or laze in the garden along side me while I dig and plant. Walks are around the neighborhood. During warm weather, if interested, your dog can try some agility stations, like walk thru tunnel, leap over hurdle. Dog wading pool provided if desired.
