Attention to deTAILS is a pet sitting and dog walking service in the Colorado Springs area owned by White Whiskers family member Barb Dodge. She brings a strong skill set related to senior pet care, paying close attention to their individual routines, mobility needs, medications, and mental stimulation. When asked why she likes being a dog walker and pet sitter, she will tell you that every day is different, and the fantastic relationships that are built not just with the pets, but the owners as well. Barb is a fantastic match for any frosty-faced friends in the White Whiskers family.
Barb Dodge is a Buckeye, but is happy to be living in Colorado Springs. She began dog walking and pet sitting in 2013 after retiring from teaching. Labradors, Mastiffs, cats, bearded dragons, various pocket pets, and even a squirrel monkey have been part of her life from a young age. Barb is mom to (four-legged) Ferris Bueller, a Rocky Mountain Lab Rescue alumni, and Addie (two-legged) who attends Colorado College.

As a senior dog mom and White Whiskers client, I value the time, care, and expertise required to care for senior pets. Attention to deTAILS has an open line of communication with White Whiskers when caring for their patients. This adds peace of mind for me.
Barb Dodge, owner of Attention to deTAILS, started out as a client, grew into a friend and now we are so THRILLED to support and recommend her services to all our clients in need of pet-sitting or dog walking services for their older pooch. We are convinced that Barb was a canine in a former life as she so eloquently speaks their language. She knows and understands senior dogs and is someone you can trust to be their guardian and advocate when you can’t be there yourself.
