in-home pet sitting
Known all over town as “Medina Dog Lady”, I have been proudly serving Medina County for almost ten years now. Animals are my passion, & I treat every one of my clients as if they were my own. Owners entrust me not only to care for their beloved pets, but also invite me into their homes & personal lives. I take great pride in knowing I have such great clientele who trust & believe in me & what I do! From feathers to scales I’ve done it all.
24/7 Dog & Cat Boarding
I am so thrilled to broaden my scope of services to my community! I have received so many requests for boarding & daycare over the years, I finally decided when this marvelous building fell into my lap that it was fate! Someone telling me this was my Carpe Diem…seize the moment!!! So I did. I encourage anyone with pets to come check us out! We’re not just your normal kennel—we are the B&B of Pet Resorts! We even have a water view & a city view!
All our daycare guests have free roam all day long. They can wander from the Playroom to the immense lobby. Lounge in their choice of couch, love seat, bay window pillows, or one of several doggie beds placed strategically throuhout! Our staff is outstanding, keeping a vigilant eye on everyone the entire day. We offer flexible pick-up & drop-off times, & offer daycare on weekends!

We're not new but our home is
It’s a Dog’s Life Pet Daycare has been a small, in-home pet-sitting business since September 2007. We now operate out of our new, completely renovated, state of the art pet resort & spa located just west of the Medina square at 245 S. Medina Street in Medina, Ohio. This was previously home to the Medina SPCA and we are excited to breath new life into a a well deserved old structure.
Home away from home
Our family room located just off of our lobby is a 12×12 bedroom complete with two twin beds, a lounge chair, TV & nightstand. Our single suites include a couch or toddler bed. We have something to accommodate an entire family, or even one pampered pet!

What our customers say
Once your pet experiences our facility, they won’t want to go anywhere else!
“I would highly recommend Barb and It’s A Dogs Life Daycare to anyone. Barb is very conscientious , reliable and always flexible if your needs change. She treats our two labs just like they were her own. It means a lot when you can completely trust the care of your ‘canine kids’ to someone without having to worry about their well-being. We could not be happier with Barb!”Jeff and Ellen N | Medina, Ohio
” Barb Whitney and her group at It’s a Dog’s Life are the BEST choice for pet care. Barb’s energy shines through every day she visits our special needs Pit Bulls: they are always happy, active and engaged when we return home. They are not stressed or out of balance in any way. She loves our dogs and treats them with the right mix of discipline and care. I highly recommend her!”Carl Byron | Medina, Ohio
