Would you like to “feel stress free” knowing your pets are in capable, nurturing hands when you're out of town?
Would you like “true peace of mind” that someone will be with your pet when they say that they will?
Would you like to leave home in the morning knowing your dog will have a “powerhouse walk” to burn off their energy so you can come home to a more more relaxed pet at the end of a 9 plus hour day?
Hi, I’m Barbie Klapp and I’m the founder of 2 Paws Up, Inc. Since 2003 we’ve served more than 900 furry, fuzzy, and feathered clients in the Lilburn, Snellville, Grayson, Loganville, Stone Mountain, and Lawrenceville areas of Gwinnett County. We’ve helped nearly 500 pet parents reconnect to their pets and learn that they can travel (and work late) without pet-related guilt! I am happy to announce that I wrote my first book, “Pet Travel Tips”. Here I am writing a book about traveling with your pet, when I am a pet sitter that travels to your home to take care of your pets. I felt that it was important that we know a few facts on how to travel with your furry family. Even if it’s traveling in the states, over seas, or to a local pet store or even a dog park. We need to know what is required, and how to transport our fur family members safely.
I always feel completely comfortable leaving my 3 dogs in Barbie's care. She is dependable and follows all of our instructions so everything is routine for the dogs while we are gone. I don't know what we would do without her!

Cats are silly creatures even in Grayson Georiga. They’re cute and cuddly one minute and standoffish the next. However, they have their unique ways of showing they love you. Bringing you “dinner” in the form of a miscellaneous dead creature, “helping” you with chores or work or reading, following you around (occasionally trying to dart […]Continue Reading 0
