About Barbara

Hello, my name is Barbara and I'm a professional pet sitter and a dog walker. I've loved dogs from a very early age and find it a very rewarding career.

I'm a trustworthy and responsible carer with lots of love and affection for my guests. I offer fun and loving home from home where dogs become a part of the family and get spoilt. I'm fully insured and licensed by the Leeds City Council to provide home boarding.

I live on my own and we don't have any pets. I limit the number of dogs I Iook after at any one time to ensure the quality of service so you don't have to worry about your dog not getting enough attention, this is definitely not the case! I'm also qualified in a Pet First Aid so you can rest assure your pooch is in safe hands.

I live in New Forest Village and there are plenty of great walks nearby including our plantation 2min away leading out to open fields and woodlands. I also like to venture out to a local reservoir, Middleton & Roundhay Parks and many more! I walk the dogs minimum twice a day and offer plenty of play time and interaction as well my favourite cuddles on the sofa. All walks are tailored to your pet's needs. Please get in touch if you want your dog to be truly cared for and loved when you're away !

Thank you, Barbara :)

Ps. Please message me if you're interested in dog walking as my calendar only reflects dog boarding availability. I offer dog walking Monday-Friday during lunchtime and am totally flexible and can work on a short notice.

    This is the first time we have left Pixie with anyone. I think Pixie enjoyed her holiday with Barbara as much as we did. Was definitely worth it and would have Pixie stay again next time we go away. Thank you so much for taking care of her.
