Meet the Ruff n’ Ready Team!

Ruff n Ready Pet Care


I started walking dogs in 2008, and I love it. I have a passion for animals so it only made sense to make my career taking care of them and providing the best service for my clients and their pets.

Ruff n Ready Pet Care


I’m a huge animal lover! I have always had pets and have been on many rescue missions. I  couldn’t be happier to now be loving and caring for your pets when you can’t!

Ruff n' Ready Dog walking services


I’ve always had a love for animals, even as a child. I love what I do, as each day is never the same. I learn something new each day from my fury friends.

Ruff n Ready Pet Care


I have owned many dogs in my life including purebreds and  mutts. I love all dogs. In 2016 I  became a Ruff n’ Ready pack member and enjoy my job walking dogs.

What virtual fence do you recommend?

Create a virtual fenced area for your dog to roam from ½ acre to 1,000+ acres, even over tricky terrain such as streams and rocks, with the SpotOn GPS Fence. And since it also includes a GPS tracking collar, you’ll know exactly where your pup is even when out of sight.

What harness do you recommend for dogs that tend to pull?

The Freedom Harness is a great No Pull harness – Easy on / Easy off and very secure. I love the double leash system for dogs who tend to pull. The soft velvet straps are non-irritating for your dog too.

Client Testimonial

Our family has been using Ruff n’ Ready for over 4 years. Barbie and her team of professionals have taken extraordinary care of our large, energetic dogs during this time. Our dogs LOVE everyone on the Ruff n’ Ready team! Barbie is super responsive to requests for service… even when it’s a last minute request. She always seems to find a solution that works! I also love that we receive timely & detailed notes about each visit… complete with pictures! In the past, we had a special needs dog who was blind. Barbie & her team were very patient with him as he would sometimes “freeze” and stop walking. They were always able to safely guide him to where he needed to be. They were also great about giving medications and/or eye drops to our pets who needed them. I never hesitate to recommend Barbie to my friends and neighbors as I know she won’t disappoint!

The Ruff n’ Ready team do a great job taking care of our dog Tucka. They take great photos and provide loving comments that are emailed to us after each walk. We always feel confident that we have left Tucka in kind and loving hands whenever we need him to be cared for. Thank you Ruff n’ Ready!

Client Testimonial

I don’t know what I would do without Ruff n’ Ready Dog Walkers! I always have peace of mind when I hire you guys. My dogs and cat love you. I know you walk the dogs because I see you around my neighborhood doing so. I love the pictures you send afterwards and love the little notes you leave about the pets. You’re very reliable and flexible if I change the schedule. I have been using your business for the past 6 years and am very happy.

Client Testimonial

We are elated that we found Ruff n’ Ready! Your personalized, professional, and friendly service is a breath of fresh air. We could’t believe the team took time out of their day to come and meet Scooter even before our first service. Thank you for being so caring about our dog’s needs! We feel ver safe leaving Scooter in your hands when we need to leave home for a bit. Barbie, Jeff, and the team are so easy to communicate with and provide us with updates for every visit including photos. They offer a variety of services, all tailored to what you need, are reasonably priced, and are professional and experienced. If you’re looking for someone to trust your dog with, call Ruff n’ Ready!

I can go on vacation knowing that my dog is being cared for. The additional perks of having the mail/garbage/plant watering taken care of is wonderful.
