Since Jessica is a dog owner/lover I know she understands how much a dog means to someone. The past few months being away from Nala has been heartbreaking at times. Knowing she has such a wonderful place to go has made it much easier. I know she loves it at Barking Springs Dog Ranch. Jessica has really created a dog heaven. I thank her so much for all her help over the last few months. It has made the transition from Austin to DC so much easier. Nala will miss Jessica and her doggie heaven so much.

Barking Springs gets my vote for a top notch place to board your dog. We've been boarding our oversized German shepherd with Jessica and Doug now since they opened. My husband and I love this place because we can tell how happy our dog is when he stays there. Jess and Doug let us come for an appointment so we could see the place ahead of time - newly built building, beautiful piece of land, plenty of room to roam around for the off leash kind of doggie. The review, though, should really come from our dog: once he realizes he is at Barking Springs, he starts to whine and bark because he can't wait to get out and have fun. He adores Jess, and he gets treated like one of the family dogs when he is there. Jess has an obvious love of dogs and a sense of ease around large dogs that makes our boy feel relaxed and at home. As I write this, he is snoring on his bed, still tired from all his fun over July 4th weekend! Other good things: Jess and Doug are nice to humans too, and easy to work with. Easy access from the airport, so you can drop the dog and go hit the parking area and be on the way. If you are a worrier, Jess will give you updates by email or text. And she has a form to fill out ahead of time so she knows your dog's quirks. Did I mention these are super nice people? Love that.

Barking Springs takes great care of my golden retriever, Abbie. She comes home from a stay happy, healthy, and well-exercised. I would recommend Barking Springs to anyone."

"I feel so lucky to have Jessica as my dog walker, and now friend. She is so great with my dogs, and they love going on outings with her. The peace of mind of knowing that she will treat Bella and Lulu with the same care and love she does her own dogs is invaluable. She is incredibly dependable and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for dog walker."

We called upon Barking Springs to find a service that would take our ailing dog, Rowdy, into their home so he didn't have to be kenneled. Barking Springs was fantastic! They followed all of our directions and cared for our dog as if he was their own. Once our dog was feeling better, Barking Springs has helped with walks during the days and they have even organized play days and outings. Simply, Barking Springs is the best and we're thrilled to have them help us care for our dog. - Vicki Hodson
Jessica has been such a blessing! It is so relaxing to come home and know that Cash has exercised and is content. Jessica's love for Cash is evident in the way he responds to her. She is very reliable and trustworthy.

Barking Springs has taken care of my most treasured possession, Baxter, many times. The only complaint I have is that I think he likes Jessica more than he likes me! He always has fun with her, and she takes him on special outings. He is even more spoiled when I get home than he was when I left him…..and, that's pretty spoiled.
