About Joshua

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
NOTE: If your dog is not leash trained or is dog/leash aggressive dog walking is not guaranteed with boarding for safety precautions.

I am opening up my pet safe/clutter free home for boarding for all breeds and sizes. I love having the company of other pets, we both entertain and keep each other active and busy!

I have worked with animals for almost 6 years and I enjoy every moment of it. I am comfortable with all breeds and all sizes, big or small. I live in a corner two story house with a large size back yard that is gated and always locked. The back yard has a big grass patch with a few small trees on one side and concrete on the other with plenty of shade and more then enough room to run/ play and get exercise . I live in a quiet neighborhood that is safe day and night.
I also worked at a major pet company for a few years as a bather so I am experienced if your pup needs a bath, nail trimmed, glads, ear cleaning, teeth brushing or maybe just a quick brush out!
No Cage drying here! Pamper your furry member the right way.

Over all, my house is very spacious, free from clutter, no breakable items and most importantly very pet safe.

Thank you for your interest.
I look forward to meeting you and your furry family member.

Duchess had a great time spending the day with Joshua. She was all ready - smelling good when we picked her up.
Joshua really saved the day for me during the holidays. Someone who was going to take care of Diggles canceled on me last minute and I was able to book with Joshua just a day before my trip. The meet and greet went smoothly, and he easily made any of my concerns go away with his personality, experience and accommodations. We communicated throughout my trip and I really had no worries about Diggles for the week. I'd definitely book with him again.
Josh did a great job watching our two dogs. They came home happy and clean. I only wish he had sent pictures of their "vaca" with him; our first booking with him he sent tons.
Very good....will book again
Great house and attentive humans! We will definitely book with Josh again. :)
Exactly what we needed for our two four-legged children.
Joshua is awesome! I recently moved here from New Orleans, and was really nervous about leaving my four-legged companion with someone, but I also didn't want to leave him cooped up in a kennel at the vet. Joshua's set up is amazing, as there was plenty of room for Goose to run around and play, but most importantly, Joshua made sure Goose had as much attention as he needed. You can't put a price on the peace of mind you receive, knowing that your loved one is in good hands and is being cared for while you're away. I will definitely use Joshua's services again!
Joshua's home is very clean and amenable to pets, and he has a lovely yard. Our 7-month old large dog had been neutered the day before, and Joshua gave him his medication, and made sure he stayed calm and comfortable. Joshua also bathed our older dog for me at my request. Both of our dogs came home happy and carefree!
Joshua was a wonderful host to our two Australian Shepherd pups as we traveled through the area on vacation. His house is the most pet safe and secure environment I have ever seen with double gates, locks and a fence with no gaps at all. The animals got lots of love and excersise and came home happy and ready for bed. Highly recommended.
Josh was great.... Answered all my questions, text me about the dogs, and sent a picture to me of them.
Josh watched my 2 Saint Bernards this past weekend. He sent me a few updates each day and sent pictures of them exploring the yard. He also gave oral meds twice a day. When I arrived to pick them up, they were both relaxed and napping. Thanks for providing a safe relaxed environment while we were away!
Josh was amazing! We were out of town for 4 days and Josh sent us photos and texted us updates along the way. He was very courteous and always replied when we messaged him. I will definitely be booking with him in the future!
To begin, i signed up for two dogs to stay for two nights and paid extra for my dogs to be the only dogs he would be caring for during that time. At least the dogs came back healthy but during their stay. when i dropped them off I went over walking the dogs and explained how they need to be walked. he did not send me one update about the dogs. So when i picked the dogs up, i asked if he had the opportunity to give them a dog walk, and he answered no. i give him extra star for his honesty. his excuse was it was too hot. He could have walked them in the eveining if the day was too hot. He also states on his profile 3+ walks/day and that his neighborhood is a good place to walk anytime and also run with bike. I wasn't expecting him to run with my dogs but his advertisement of being active with the dogs he watches was key for me to choosing him. the fact that my dogs were not even waked one time during their stay is very disappointing.

so all in all, my experience with this host was not positive @ all. not worth the money their stay was in no way a dog vacation
Our dog, Lucky loved the host and the house!
Joshua was very accommodating and was very helpful when we needed a sitter at the last minute. When we got Kilo back she had developed hot spots but that was not due to anything in Joshua's care. She would have most likely developed them even at home because of the weather. Joshua was very concerned and wanted to help us find what was happening to Kilo and what could've been the cause of it.

Joshua provided a lot of updates and pictures and really helped put our minds at ease about the care Kilo was getting.
Joshua was very accommodating. My dog is large and friendly, but can be a handful at times, with a mind of his own. This time was no exception, but everything went very smoothly. I would definitely recommend Joshua.
I needed to board my 90lb pitbull mix for 5 nights and was worried I wouldn't find the right boarder but that all changed when I met Josh! From the meet and greet on, I was at ease knowing that my dog, Serie, would be well taken care of. Josh was really good about responding to my messages and posting updates about Serie whenever I asked.

I had told him that Serie needed to be separated from other dogs, and he was more than willing to meet her needs by rotating the dogs around when needed. When I picked up Serie, she was her happy self and I couldn't be more happy with how everything worked out.

Will definitely be using Josh's services again in the future!
Josh was absolutely exceptional. Friendly. Booked the reservation night before. He has a great response time to all forms of communication. Gave me great feedback on my dog and answered all of my questions. Although he had other doggies there, he let me know and was able to accommodate my late booking.

His place is very spacious, nicely decorated and clean. Lots of room for the dogs inside and outside.
When I arrived for pick up...my large breed pup was sitting quietly completely at ease. If he wasn't comfortable, he would be pacing back and forth.

I will be using Josh again for overnight stays and also dog grooming. He is full service.
Josh was awesome!!! I ended up looking to book a dog sitter with short notice (few hours) upon looking and sending request to multiple people, Josh was the first and only person to reply within minutes. After discussing the drop off and pick up details we went with Josh. At first I was reluctant because I have never left Waffles with a sitter. I am glad I did, Josh was able to accommodate a late drop off and was very friendly when I arrived with Waffles. An hour after the drop off I was concerned about how Waffles was doing because he has never had a night away from us, I think Josh's doggie senses were tingling because I got an update email with pictures of Waffles doing great with the other dogs Josh had at his place. That was great and really put my mind at ease. Communication with Josh via text was awesome and I picked up Waffles with no issues. During the pick up I forgot to make sure I picked up his food/water bowls. I texted Josh and he arranged a way to pick up the items on Mother's Day, which I totally didn't expect. Thank you for everything Josh, should the need ever arise again, you will definitely be my first choice!
This is the first time I have ever left a pet with a stranger. I scheduled a meet and greet and was very happy with house and yard my puppy would be staying; nothing that she could get hurt by or destroy. They even have special signs to inform the gardener that dogs are in the yard. I scheduled last minute and lucky for me, it was accommodated. Josh was super accommodating and flexible. My puppy was super happy when I picked her up.
See you next time Josh!!!
Joshua did an amazing job with my puppy Bella. Bella had an awesome time with him and he was so attentive towards her. He was also quick to respond to any of my requests of questions that I might have. Definitely recommend and will use his services again!
Just joined DogVacay 2 weeks ago and have been looking for that Right dog sitter..Josh was absolutely very professional from the time I sent the first message to dropping off our two Yorkies Desi and Lucy. The initial greet was a great experience. Our Dogs were bathed and very relaxed when we arrived Thanks Josh we will definitely be using your services again...
I always get nervous when I leave my puppies to a stranger, Joshua did a great job taking cares of our 2 dogs. They had a great time and happy when we pick them up. Thank you Joshua for doing an excellent job. We will definitely come back.
A great place for your pet if you are traveling to Disneyland overnight--only 12 minutes away!! Joshua was able to accommodate Rocky on a last minute decision to travel to Disneyland over the holidays.
Rocky had lots of fun and was able to play outside as well as spend time inside with Joshua. Joshua sent us photos throughout the stay to keep us updated on Rocky's stay and was very quick to respond to my communication. He was also able to be flexible with drop off and pick up times. I would definitely recommend Joshua to friends visiting the Anaheim area who are traveling with their canine family members!
Joshua was absolutely awesome and I will be using his services every time I need someone to groom or board my dog in the future! He took our dog in when another host "couldn't handle her energy" while we were on vacation and we couldn't have been happier with who she ended up with. We picked her up and she was happy, well exercised, and safe. He eased our stress and made us feel GOOD about choosing this website to find someone to look after our fur baby while we were on vacation. Thank you Joshua!!!
