Once again, our dogs had a blast with Barbara and her daughters. They played with other dogs and went to the dog park regularly. The pictures we received during the trip were great and it was clear the two were having a blast. They were excited to see us when we picked them up but they are exhausted from their own vacation getaway. Thanks again Barbara for taking such good care of our pups while we were away!

We had tried a kennel a couple of times and our pup came back mad and sad and it broke my heart. We decided to give rover a try, and I am so happy we did. Lem was happy (and tired, in a good way) when we picked him up, and you could tell he had a good time. Barbara and her daughters are great! Loved the photos/updates of him playing and sleeping. I would not hesitate to keep bringing him back to them again.

They were amazing! Best dog-sitters we’ve ever had. They provided photos and updates often and took perfect care of our dog. It’s clear they love dogs and know how to care for them and give them the attention every owner wishes their dog will get. Highly, highly recommended.

This was our first time leaving our furry son, Rion, with a non-family member for an extended period of time and we were definitely nervous and anxious. Barbara and her daughters took such good care of him and kept us updated with pictures throughout the entire vacation. When we picked him up he looked happy and tired (in a good way) from playing with his new friends and going on walks and playing at the dog park. We will definitely be using her again when we go on our next trip!

I could not have nicer things to say about Barbara and her girls. I knew my dog was well taken care of from the moment I met them. Barbara sent me multiple daily updates, with pictures, and made it clear that my dog was having a phenomenal time. I was away in Orlando so I got pictures of my pup dressed up in disney costume. It seems silly but it made my trip bearable knowing that I had a team of people who cared so much about my dog. I will use Barbara EVERY time i go away! She is a dog lover and it shows!

Outstanding communication! Responsible, made us feel safe leaving our dog for extended stays.

I am so glad that I decided to choose Barbara for my dog, Charlie, to stay with when our family went away on 8 day vacation. I would give her ten stars if I could! This is Charlie’s second time staying with Barbara. Charlie is very timid and shy dog, but he seemed to be having great time whenever he stays with her. Also, she sends picture of your pet and a short text of what he/she was doing everyday. Barbara even sent Charlie with a goody bag of dog toys and cute clothes when we picked him up this time, how nice! I can see that she is true dog lover at heart. I strongly recommend Barbara for any type of stay – short or long. Thank you Barbara for your terrific service and care!!

I cannot recommend Barbara enough! She drove to our home to meet our dog and family prior to the stay. She treated our pup like one of her own, and made our dog feel comfortable while we were away. She sent “pupdates” every time she visited to walk Tenley. We would absolutely recommend Barbara to friends and family, and will certainly be using her again.

This was our Harper’s second stay with Barbara and again, was overall a wonderful experience. Barbara was very professional, took great care of Harper and was kind enough to send regular updates and photos to my two young boys which made them miss her a bit less and made our trip more enjoyable overall. She was even kind enough to include a small gift for them! What more can I say? We’ll definitely ask Barbara to take care of Harper again!

Great stay as always!

with a toy for Truman when I unpacked his bag. That was very thoughtful and appreciated.

Barbara and her girls are wonderful. We recommended them to a friend of ours and they love them too! Thor and Maggie are so happy to be able to stay together and they both come home happy, healthy and tired. Even the snow and cold won’t keep them from letting the dogs run and play at the park. I know they both love going there!

on the kitchen table when we returned home from warm sunny Florida to -15 degree wind chill Philadelphia. We often worry that our two pups are a handful for someone to stay with, but wouldn’t hesitate to use Barbara again. She seems to have the “touch”.

Barbara and her team were truly wonderful. My pup has anxiety and was soon soothed and doing well in their care. I got updates 2 -3 x a day which was really nice. They dogs seemed to really enjoy themselves and I would highly recommend them for any of their services. I will have no problem in using them again. I will be using them for their “dog shuttle!”. They truly love animals and you can tell in the way they handle them so professionally. 

Chris F.

Great. Wonderful family. Would not hesitate to recommend. A++

Gerry M.

Barbara took great care of our dog, and sent frequent updates and pictures which was greatly appreciated. Would highly recommend to any other dog owners looking for a sitter.

Angela B.

We feel like we have made new friends and our pug, Jeter, a new family. Barbara and her daughters made Jeter feel welcome and put us at ease as we vacationed. We loved receiving daily texts and pictures as he enjoyed his “vacation”. They catered to his whims and needs beautifully and I would use them again!

Eric G.

Our dog had a great time – we could tell. Think he wanted to stay when we came to get him.

Susan S.

Thor had a great time with Barbara, her daughters and Charlie! They all love dogs and know how to care for them. Thor was happy and tired when he got home. We never feel bad leaving Thor in their capable hands and know that he is having a great time running and playing! Thanks Barb!

Kim M.

Great care for our 3 dogs over the holiday break. We returned to happy, well-cared for dogs. 🙂

Jay V.

Barbara and her daughter were great with our black lab Harper. She’s just 1 year old, so still full of energy, but even she came back tired and I’m sure she had a great time playing with the other dogs!

Sophia T.

Barbara and her daughters are so warm and friendly! We feel so at ease letting Frosty stay with them. He looked so happy in the daily pictures we received, and loved the dog park and walks with them! We are so blessed! Thank you! Sophie

Paul S.

Barbara was super responsive and excited to watch Mac for the night. She made sure to take down all of my information, including the vet info and other specific instructions. She made sure my energetic dog received plenty of exercise too.

Valerie Z.

Cooper and Gizmo always have a great time with Barbara and her daughters!

Sharon H.

I was very nervous about leaving my “little one” with a sitter for the first time, but Barbara and her pets were VERY welcoming on our meet and greet. Teddy had a wonderful time!! The daily updates with pictures are an awesome touch and help to put my mind at rest. Teddy and I BOTH had great vacations!! Lol :o) Thank you again to Barbara and her family for taking such good care of my little boy!! He’ll be back! 

Marsha H.

I was extremely happy with Barbara’s care of Kody and Maggie. She did everything she said she would do and more. I look forward to using her again.

Kevin D.

Our dog had an amazing stay and I will be taken her back anytime we head out if town.. They also sent multiple updays with lots of pictures that helped make us feel better . I highly recommend them to babysit your dog.

Barbara was fantastic with our two dogs while we were out of town for an extended period of time. It was our first time leaving our dogs and having someone who wasn’t friends or family taking care of them. The dogs were spoiled! Barbara sent us pictures and text updates after every visit. She gave both dogs walks every visit and lots of love and attention! We felt so comfortable being away and could enjoy our vacation knowing our dogs were safe and sound. Barbara really eased our peace of mind by calling us the morning of our trip home when one dog got sick and to let us know how he was doing and if we wanted her to do anything. We were going to be home in a couple of hours but she said to let her know if there were any issues with our flight and she would stop by again to check in on them. She also knew our dogs were very scared of storms and stayed extra one evening when it was really bad outside to keep them company! We arrived home to a wonderful note and all of the dog bowels washed and dried. We could tell the dogs enjoyed their time with Barbara and we will definitely be using her again! Highly recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable, friendly dog sitter! 

Valerie Z.

Barbara and her daughters are absolutely wonderful. We have a golden retriever and a toy chihuahua and they both came home happy and completely worn out from all of the fun they had! She goes out of her way to ensure that the dogs feel at home and are in a comfortable environment. She even sent us pictures and updates throughout their stay to keep us informed!! 5 stars without a doubt!

 Carly F.

My husband and I could not have been happier with Barbara’s stay with Chloe. She met with us beforehand to discuss all the particulars of what Chloe would need while we were gone, and she was very friendly and professional. She came three times a day to walk and feed her, and sent us tons of pictures of Chloe while we were away. She even offered to take Chloe to the dog part for an outing! It was obvious that Barbara really cares about the animals she cares for. I would definitely book her again for any future trips.

Michael M.

Barbara did an excellent job taking care of my dog and she’s obviously a very experienced sitter. I particularly enjoyed the updates that she sent after each visit which put me at ease knowing my dog was doing fine. I would recommend Barbara to others without reservations.

Stephanie A.

Barbara is just wonderful. We get frequent updates and pictures while Buddy is under her care. It’s so nice to know he is in capable, loving hands.

Michael O.

Barbara was great! She went above and beyond to take excellent care of our 2 dogs and cat. I would highly recommend Barbara to anyone.

Hi – Nothing but great things to say about Barb, and her family, and care for Chase. Updates were great and loved seeing pictures. Thank you! Chase is now part of the family –

We left our 10 year old vizsla, Mia, with Barbara for 2 weeks. I would definitely go back again. Barbara was friendly, professional, and an obvious dog lover. I think Mia had a better time with her than at home. She went to the dog park multiple times/day and was able to play with other dogs whenever she liked. Her dog bowls came back cleaner than when I sent them!

Susan M.

Bailey came back from her overnight at Barbara’s a very happy dog! She enjoyed her “mini-vacation” as much as we enjoyed being able to attend our son’s wedding stress-free without worrying how she would do away from home. We all had a great time. Thanks so much, Barbara, for the wonderful care of our big “pup”! The Morgan family Ambler, PA

Mike M.

Barbara was very professional and covered every single detail. I felt confident my dogs were in great hands and I was right. Would definitely recommend Barbara to anyone looking for a professional and responsible dog sitter.

Kathleen T.

Barbara and her girls took such great care of Maggie while we were away. You can tell how much they love the pups. I love all of the daily updates, and the pictures are fabulous. Highly recommend!

Zach M.

Barbara took great care of our dog (& 2 kitties) while we were away. Would definitely recommend Barbara’s services to others looking for someone to watch over their dog while away.

Linda M.

Our first experience with a sitter from Rover.com was fabulous! Barbara and her daughters (and other four-legged friends) couldn’t have been more caring and compassionate toward our Emmy 🙂 The stay was like a home away from home for her and we’re grateful for the care they showed her. We’ll definitely be back and highly recommend others to check them out!

Rosie I.

Barbara and her daughters took great care of our 10 months golden for 10 days during our travel abroad. She sent us updates and pictures every day. She walked the dog to the nearest dog park and made sure our big puppy had enough exercise . She was responsible, caring, and very flexible. We were comfortable our dog was in a good place. Will use her service again. Thank you very much, Barbara!

Scooter came home healthy and happy. Barbara stayed in touch throughout Scoots stay so we were aware of his status. She made sure our old man was comfortable and felt secure.

Joe D.

We were very pleased with Barbara’s care of our dog. She was very caring with Buddy and kept us well informed on his status while we were away. We do plan on requesting her for future needs.

Kathleen T.

Thanks so much for your warm and friendly care. I really appreciated the multiple daily updates and pictures.

Barbara just took care of our four dogs and fish tank while we were gone for a week. From the first initial interview when she asked many detailed questions about our pets and our home, I knew we were making an excellent decision to have her pet sit for us. While we were away, she sent us many texts with pictures, telling us all about what was going on at home. This was particularly important to us, as we really miss our dogs when we are away and we felt like we could “keep in touch” with Barbara’s diligent and fun texts. She was flexible and willing to stay later when our flight was delayed coming home, and we came home to a clean house, fresh flowers, and happy and well-cared for dogs. I can’t say enough positive things to recommend Barbara, we will be having her pet sit in the future for sure! 

Jay J.

I could not have asked for a better dog sitter than Barbara! I think my dog actually got more love and attention while I was away on vacation! Barbara texted me daily updates, with photos, and this was my first vacation where I felt my dog was having as much fun as I was! I would highly recommend Barbara!! A true dog lover and a terrific caregiver!
