Hollie and here family are amazing!!! They treated Bella and Sausage just like their own dogs! My dogs did not even want to leave because of all the attention they were getting! - Megan C.


Nora and Sage had a wonderful stay with Hollie. Hollie made them feel right at home and took great care of both of our dogs. During my next travel, i will most definitely look to bring the dogs back for another visit. - Matthew L.

Hollie is an excellent dog sitter. She is very thorough and detailed. My dogs seemed very happy to be at Hollie's house. From the moment we did a meet and greet, my dogs seemed very mellow and comfortable at Hollie's house. Hollie makes a huge effort to ensure our dogs were comfortable and happy in her home. I plan to use The Barkmore House in the future. - Patrik P.

Hollie & Joe provided the best doggie care we've EVER had!! From their warm welcome to their daily updates [with lots of photos] to a trouble-free check-out, our dog's stay was a true joy. Our border collie is a high-energy little fella who needs lots of attention. We could tell he had a marvelous time playing with Hollie and her other pups and that he'd had excellent care for his entire stay. On a scale of 1 to 10, this place is an 11!! - Joseph M.

Best dog sitter ever! Hollie always takes such great care of Bean and he's always excited to go to her house! Thanks! - Lindsie T.

The Barkmore House was amazing! Hollie was very easy to schedule with and Mugsy (our dog) had an amazing time. He even made a new dog friend! It was really nice going out of town knowing that our dog was going to be well taken care of and getting daily updates. She clearly knows dogs and is great at taking care of them. This was our first time boarding with Hollie and we will definitely use her in the future! - Katie B.

Hollie is an excellent dog sitter. Mickey loved staying there. Hollie goes the extra mile to ensure her clients are safe and well cared for. I always hate leaving Mickey when I travel, but Hollie and Joe gave me peace of mind. - Laura W.

See what customers have to say about The Barkmore House !

Hollie and Joe are such wonderful dog sitters! They are accommodating with drop off and pick up times, which was nice because I had a delay on the way home!! They are organized with food and other supplies. I could tell Lavender had a ball with them and wasn't quite ready to leave!! Lavender will definitely stay with them, again!! - Sarah F.  

Hollie and Joe are wonderful dog sitters. I appreciated how knowledgeable they are about dogs which was evident in the thoughtful conversation we had when Hollie first met our dog. I also loved the cute texts we got when we were away. Especially important for our dog was that I knew he would have loving company all day since he doesn't like being left alone. I'm sad to no longer live in Durham because I will miss being able to bring our dog to hang out with Hollie and Joe's family. - Kathryn H.

Hollie is phenomenal! I have used many different pet sitters before, but no one has come close to the service she provides. We were looking for someone that we can leave our dog with when we travel that would feel like is home away from home, and we found that with Hollie. My husband, Stoli, and I met her at her house for a meet and greet, and were happy to see she has a large fenced in backyard the so the dogs can enjoy some outside time. She is the nicest person and was very thorough asking about his routine, habits, and specific behaviors. Most importly she clearly loves the dogs she cares for. Stoli spent a night there and came back home exhausted! She sent plenty of pictures (which we love!) with updates about how our dog was doing. We are definitely using her services again. The Barkmore House offers best dog boarding, and dog sitter services in Durham, NC! Highly recommend it! - Talita M.
