Barbra was great to work with. Very flexible coordination schedules and helping out. She was very attentive to my dog and was always spot on with timing letting him out. I really appreciate everything she did to take care of him.

Barbara did a great job house sitting with our two dogs! The dogs immediately warmed up to her and she appeared to have a good understanding of dog care. She was prompt , communicated well with us while we were away and she kept us updated with some cute photos through the duration of our trip.

When Barbara watches your pet

As a health enthusiast and runner, I am all about the outdoors! We'll go out for walks, go for a run, play in the nearby park with other dogg-ohs (if your special pup is sociable and playful), or toss around his/her favorite toy for a game of fetch. Or, if your pup is lower energy, we will pass the time with a gentle walk and any needed cuddles!
