"Tiffany took great care to find the right carer for our dog, Murphy, often looking after him herself. The care was exceptional and made our necessary absences completely guilt free. Murphy has since passed away, but we would have no hesitation in asking Tiffany to find suitable carers for our new hound when we return to Canada." — Mike

"You know, I am so calm and secure when I drop Colebury off with you. I worry about him all the time when I leave him (and NOT just because he might be angry enough to strew garbage all over the house!) but when he's with Nosy Barkers I am as calm as...well, as calm as I can be at any time. I really respect the way you take care of him, and am forever grateful. I recommend you to all my friends...with a happy heart." — Karen

"Our two standard poodles, CJ and Zuzu, have only had short times away from us in the past and we've boarded them at a local kennel. We've never been very happy about that but, it has never been for more than a few days. Because we were going to be gone for two weeks this time, we started to look around for an alternative to the kennel and discovered home boarding. Tiffany and her family welcomed our "babies" into their home, which included her son and two miniature poodles. Everyone got along just fine! We knew immediately that our dogs were in good hands. In hindsight, I am so glad we chose Nosy Barkers. While we were away, CJ got sick. Tiffany noticed quickly that CJ wasn't eating, identified what the problem was and rushed her to the emergency vet clinic. Had CJ been in a kennel, I don't want to think about how long it would have been before someone noticed she had a problem. Tiffany took care of CJ as if she were her own. While it was upsetting to learn that our dog was sick when were were so far away and unable to do anything, it was very reassuring to know that Tiffany was doing everything that we would have done for her, including giving her all of her medication, and lots and lots of love. Tiffany was terrific with her regular phone and email updates too. Thank you Tiffany. CJ and Zuzu will be back again for sure!"— Karen & Steve
