About Joanne

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

Hello there, my name is Joanne and live in beautiful Napa on 5 acres in the hills. My husband and I bought our house last year and found a place with land specifically for our dogs and our 10 year old son. I have been caring for animals as long as I can remember. I grew up with a family of animal lovers, in return I became one. It's safe to say that animals are definitely my passion. I currently volunteer for three different Labrador Retriever rescues. This requires me transporting, fostering and pulling unwanted animals from the shelter. At home I have three dogs of my own. First is Maui, he's a six-year-old golden retriever or that we saved from the meat trade in China last year. Next is Willow, she's a beautiful Lab/Pyrenees girl who was rescued last year as well. Last is our boy Hank, he's a black lab who was left behind and abandon last year by his owners, so of course we rescued him too. :) Our yard is under construction, but the dogs don't seem to mind. We have a big pond, trails and all sorts of places to explore. Our yard is not fenced, but my dogs are kept inside at night with us and a large dog friendly porch area during the day when we aren't out exploring. We are also in the process of sectioninv off part of our land for the dogs. Everyday we go on multiple long walks and play in our pond. If I watch your dog, we will go on many walks and they will get plenty of love! I love dogs of all ages and all sizes. All are welcome at my place. I do have a 10 year old son, so I just ask that they are good with children. My son is also an experienced dog person... He's always had a pooch by his side.

Great experience for our pup and us! Outdoor play area is exceptionally well done with several friends to play with. The convenience and flexibility to pick up and drop off in town is also a plus.
Joanne is amazing! She was so caring and playful with my fur-baby while I was gone. I got multiple photos everyday and had the peace of mind that he was in 5-star care! Thanks Joanne and family!
We are very happy with Joanne taking care of our babies!!!! Our chocolate lab doesn't do well with other dogs so she had to make two trips a day to our home to give our chihuahua mix his insulin shots. They were well taken care of!!! We would recommend her to anyone needing care for their four legged family members!
