About Joan

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
WHEN YOUR PUP IS HERE IT WILL "FEEL LIKE HOME"

*MAKE SURE YOU READ TO THE BOTTOM -IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON RATES *

I am a retired business owner of 20 years and chose to returned to college at Pennsylvania State University in 2008 for my degree in Psychology while raising our youngest daughter. I graduated in 2014 and found that I have a lot of time on my hands. I chose to go into business again doing something that my husband, daughter and I love... Caring for your dog. My husband, our 13 yr old daughter, and I absolutely love spending our days caring for your pet. We treat your dog(s) like one of the family. Because my husband and I are retired... Its important to say that We walk, play and love every four legged friend that comes through our doors. We look forward to meeting you and your best friend. When they stay with us they will have days filled with walks, playtime and meals on schedule to fit your pets regular routine. We also specialize in dogs that have medical issues. We have years of experience caring for pups with many illnesses as well as administering many medications orally and also by injection if needed and more. In addition... playtime, hugs, petting, story time, and belly scratches are always included at no extra charge.
We are available on short notice and can assist with transportation to the groomer, the vet, the dog park or just take your pup for a ride in the car.

A complimentary "Meet and Greet" will be arranged for your peace of mind. We have a fenced in yard, and access to many parks right in our area. Your dog will feel right at home and you can feel content knowing that they will be well taken care of. Your dog will have all the comforts of home, whether they sleep with us, in our bed or sit on our couch watching television with Sam our bichon and our newest member of the family, Ashley, she was a puppy mill dog who was rescued down south after she was tossed because she was unable to produce anymore litters, due to a breast tumor. She is a 9 year old Yorkie and the most precious little girl I have ever met! We all will make your dog feel like they are right at home!!!

All dogs must have all shots! Updated Rabies and Distemper either a one year or 3 years and Bordatella. Flea and tick treatments are mandatory. Your dog should also be house broken, spayed or neutered (unless under age) and should be KID and PET friendly. PLEASE do not schedule any surgeries close to your drop off dat. Dogs do not do well when they are compromised and put in a new situation with new ad unknown pups.

It's just my husband and our daughter who is 13 yrs old, my self and Sammy and Ashley in the house now, but the kids and grandkids stop by all the time.

?? Because we give up our holidays to care for your dogs, we feel it is important to let you know prior to booking your stay. We have different rates for holiday's, illness, and some extremely elderly dogs when they stay with us.??

HOLIDAY RATE $50/DAY (24 HOURS-ALL OF OUR DAYS CONSIST OF A 24 HOUR DAY. i.e. 10 am Sunday to 10 am Monday = 1 day, 10am Sunday - 9pm Monday = 2 days)
THANKSGIVING??, CHRISTMAS EVE??, CHRISTMAS DAY??, NEW YEARS EVE, ??NEW YEARS DAY??, MEMORIAL DAY??, LABOR DAY ??AND FOURTH OF JULY.?
We also are very experienced in caring for sick and or elderly dogs. ???? The fee for that is $45 per day. Puppies under 2 yrs old $45/day

????all other rates stay the same. see under ??"services"?? for rates

did a great job! dora loved it there and got along well with Joan's dog. great family, great sitter!
Joan was an excellent host and we were very happy, and so were our two dogs. They had a fine time and we would certainly board with Joan again.
Our Bella had a great time with Joan and her family! She was spoiled & we loved getting pictures and updates while we were away.... We would highly recommend her :) Bella can't wait for us to go away so she can see her 2nd family!
