Whether you need small doggy day care for an hour, a day, or overnight...or dog boarding for a month...there’s a perfect match for you, your animals, and your lifestyle. Trusted, dedicated, vetted animal lovers, Gary Barnby and Bill Dalo offer dog and cat boarding, pet sitting, dog walking, doggy day care and animal transport. Located conveniently in a quiet country setting between Vermilion and Amherst Ohio, the property features a large guesthouse, a doggy daycare center, and a 2 acre dog park.

Gary and Bill have 25 years of experience volunteering and working with animals on a full time basis. Animals are their passion, and they enjoy nothing more than making them happy and content. Their animals, and yours, are family and friends. Their needs always come first. Gary and Bill work from home with very flexible hours, so animals are rarely ever left alone. They enjoy taking dogs for car rides, to the many nearby parks, for walks around town, and to restaurants and dog friendly businesses. They rotate visits between over 2 dozen parks so the dogs never get bored. When the weather doesn't cooperate, they take them to indoor dog friendly businesses like Lowes, Petsmart, Pet Supplies Plus, Tractor Supply, etc.

Their home and doggy daycare center are animal friendly, with animals having free range of the dog daycare building and four bedroom home. They are very clean, neat and organized. Boarding animals that want to interact with other dogs stay in the main house. Boarding animals that are not comfortable with other dogs stay in the doggy daycare building. Animals are allowed on all furniture, and always sleep with Gary and Bill. Their 2 acre property was planned for dogs, with 1.5 acres fenced as a dog park. Outside of fenced areas, and on doggy outings, all animals are always kept on leash. They have years of experience with all varieties of dogs and cats, and are happy to care for special needs animals.
