Kathy Barker, owner of Barkers Pet Care, at the signing of a purchase agreement with Jim and Renee Towan, owners of Granite Bay Pet Sitting and Granite Bay Dog Walking.
After building a very successful business and loyal customer base, Jim and Renee are moving to Oregon to start a new chapter in their lives.
We started BarkersPetCare.com after working for several years as operations manager for the number one rated Dog Resort in Folsom, California.
Our mission and goal have always stayed the same: take care of our customer's pets like they're our own.
And that means coming to you and your home for more than just a 30-minute visit or to feed them.
We routinely walk, play, and train your animal to make sure that they're not just getting love, but they're also getting some just deserved exercise. We offer compassionate and loving care to senior pets that may not be welcomed at boarding kennels.
“Barker's pet care is very reliable and responsive. They don't mind my cat's special needs and quirks! I have peace of mind knowing they do care about my cats' well being.”
“Kathy at Barker's Pet Care went above and beyond to take care of our kitties while we were away on vacation. Excellent communication, brought in packages from our porch, hauled out trash cans, so we wouldn't miss our service dates, and made an unscheduled visit to check on one of our cats that we were worried about. Knowing Kathy is there to handle any problems makes it much easier to relax while we are away. Highly recommend this fantastic pet care service if you need someone to look after your pets while you are out of town.”
“Kathy took great care of our dog and two cats while we were out of the country for spring break with the kids, and took care of our home as if it were her own. For example, she noticed that the sprinklers in our front yard, which are on a timer managed by the HOA’s gardeners, were running too long and flooding the yard, so she found the valve and turned it off, averting a potential mess. She communicated with us daily with status reports and/or photos of our pets. She is very conscientious, very responsible, and very professional. We had complete peace of mind that our pets and our house were in good hands while we were away.”
“I can't bring my dogs to a kennel when I go on vacation because my chihuahua gets serious separation anxiety and will either overeat or stop eating while I'm away. This has led to numerous vet visits to fix my sick pup. Having Kathy come and watch my babies has been a true blessing! My pack absolutely adores her and I know they have a blast because I get text updates of their play sessions. I would highly recommend Barker's Pet Care to anyone who has tried kenneling their pets with no success-- you can't put a price on the happiness of your fur babies!”
“Barkers Pet Care took such GREAT care of our 3 pets (Frenchie, Boxer and an indoor cat) that we NEVER had to worry at all while on vacation for 8 days. They provided daily photos and funny videos of our pets via text that we really enjoyed while away. The first-class 5 star service Barkers Pet Care provides to their clients is unmatched. I HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking for in-home pet care. We will always hire them from now on. Our pet sitter was amazing!”
“Barkers is our absolute go to for when we need our pets looked after. Our dogs are our family, and we don't trust their care to just anybody. The fact that our dogs can stay at home where they are most comfortable is such a relief!”
