About Joann

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I'm Joann. I'd love to babysit your dog. I board ONE dog at a time ensuring your pup gets 100 percent of my attention while he or she stays over. (Siblings are okay.)

I grew up with dogs and love having them around. Once a week, I volunteer at a local shelter helping to socialize puppies and new additions. I'm happy to answer any questions you have about a potential stay, and schedule a Meet n Greet to see if I'm a good match for your dog.

About my apartment: I live in a spacious one-bedroom condo with my dog-loving boyfriend (he's great at belly rubs and intense games of fetch). Your pet will get plenty of exercise while he's here. I live blocks away from Socrates Sculpture Garden, Rainey Park and Astoria Park. Depending on your dog's exercise needs, we can go for short or long walks/runs throughout the day. If your dog needs a ton of exercise, walking to Gantry Plaza State Park in LIC (2.4 miles away) would be no problem.

Note about my schedule: I work full-time in the city M-F from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. But am available all day Saturday and Sunday to watch your pet. Thompson (bf) frequently works from home but has an unpredictable schedule so please ask about day care if it's needed. With each pet, I endeavor to stick to his/her normal eating/walking schedule. I am very careful to follow special instructions for meals and walks.

Thanks for visiting. Please let me know if you have any questions.

*Please only housebroken dogs*

Joann :)

Joann and Thompson are fantastic host! We could tell our French Bulldog, Kuromame, had a great time with them. Thank you so much for keeping us up to date with daily photo and for taking great care of Kuromame!
I was delighted when Joann and Thompson agreed to host my 3 seniors during a challenging weekend for me. From the profile, I knew these were dog people who would give them the attention they deserved.

And so it was, ..these hosts are amazing! I was kept informed by messages and wonderful photos, which enabled me to focus on my challenges--Joann was flexible, safe and fully present for my ole girls . she even readily shared some of their vegetable stock to entice them to eat their kibble, provided pillows and adjusted her walks to cater to their needs...

I would encourage any dog owner to entrust your pups to this family and I will certainly use them again!
Joann and her boyfriend Thompson are great sitters. This is the second time they've watched Venus and she is very comfortable staying with them. They treat Venus like it is her second home. They are great communicators and I love the daily updates and the photos and videos they sent. I don't think Venus wanted to come home! They were very accommodating to my drop off time. I will definitely use their services again and would recommend them.
This was our first time using DogVacay (or any pet sitter) and we couldn't be more happier with our choice. Joann and her boyfriend Thompson were beyond perfect for our puppy Samoyed Luna. They took her in with open arms despite the last minute booking. Luna was well taken care of and Joann was kind enough to send us videos, photos and messages throughout the day. Their hospitality and warm presence brought assurance to new puppy parents. We (and Luna) look forward to having them babysit again!
Joann is AMAZING! I was on a tight bind and needed someone ASAP and boy did she deliver. She responded to my request in a prompt manner and welcomed my pup with open arms. Her and her boyfriend are just super. If you want your dog to have a great stay and feel loved and taken care of, Joann is the person for the job. She's a dog lover and a great person.
Joann watched out Pit baby Stella for us for the day and she was great! Took lots of pictures and took Stella to the park. She was very accommodating when we couldn't pick Stella up until late too! You can trust Joann will take good care of your pup and they will have fun as well!
Joann and her boyfriend were AMAZING! I received tons of photos and videos. They responded immediately to any questions. Lucky was so happy I'm not sure she was completely ready to leave! Thanks!
Jax had such a great stay and was super well cared for! He got long walks and lots of love and we got great updates and photos. We'd definitely book again!
