What Our Clients are Saying!
I can wholeheartedly recommend Elizabeth and her team at Barks and Recreation! I was insanely nervous about leaving my two dogs (one who is incredibly weary of strangers), and flock of chickens/ducks to go on vacation… but Barks and Recreation eased my fears by the end of the first day.
Barks provide a little write up + photo updates multiple times a day, make sure the house is secure upon leaving, clean up any mess my dogs made while they were away (one dog has a habit of shredding tissues + her toys), brought in packages upon delivery, made sure they were physically + mentally tired from multiple adventures, and most of all – my animals were so happy/loved.
I swear my dogs were waiting for their “friends” to come back multiple times a day to visit after we return. We 100% plan to use Barks and Recreation in the future.
Positive: Professionalism, Reliability, Responsiveness
We hired Barks and Recreation to walk my moms dog. He can be a little timid and not always willingly to go for a walk. They worked with him and and we’re very patient. Now he can’t wait to go for a walk when they show up.
They are fantastic!
Barks and Rec is a reliable, passionate business and has given me peace of mind while I’m at work for the day. The cute pictures and updates are always a joy to see! My dog loves everyone on their team and so enjoys his walks and Wednesday hikes with them. It is easy to get in contact with them when needed and the app used for scheduling and payment is incredibly convenient and easy to use. I have recommended and will continue to recommend this business to anyone in the area looking for a pet sitter/walker.
