How DBar Dogs Came To Be:
Our family and friends in the neighborhood always needed an extra hand looking after family pets. Trying to match people who would be a good match for our pets was very challenging and difficult. "Neighbor Bob loves dogs but his wife is allergic. Cousin Nancy is single but 2 days looking after Rambo is a lot to ask." Eventually finding a caretaker became a chore.
