About Joseph

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
About Me:

My name is Joe, and I am 22 years of age. I live in my apartment on a college campus with my two best friends-- my Fiance and my dog Beau. I work from home, and being that I live on a college campus it enables me with a unique opportunity while caring for your pets. College kids are stressed out from mid-terms and finals, the load of work on top of sports, homework, and their part/full time jobs. Let's face it, dogs are therapeutic, and being that I will be walking the dogs every time they need to relieve or be exercised, your dog(s) will get an immense amount of socialization and exercise, which is SURE to tire them out for you!

The college campus I live on in Reading, PA, is the campus of Albright College, and it features very mountainous terrain, which is a great place to walk the dogs and meet new people. On top of that, being that I have my own dog, I know the best spots for a secluded walk if your pet isn't keen on socialization.

your dogs will be played with and cared for by me, and occasionally my dog, as he is very playful himself.

A typical day will start with a feeding, and then a walk to use the bathroom, and just for general exercise. As stated previously, I work from home, and so the dogs are never unsupervised or left alone. If they are at all, it would be for an hour maximum for my lunch break with my fiance, which, sometimes I even bring my dog on lunch!

I have very few restrictions for my services. Those we can discuss at a later date!

I am a very passionate animal lover, and I will do my VERY best to keep you updated and satisfied with my services. I assure you with my unique living situation that I will be able to provide a pet-sitting experience unlike any other you have ever had! I am all about catering an experience toward you and your pets individual needs, so please, include a list of things for me to do/that your pet likes to do when we meet up for our initial pre-booking meet up!

Thank you for your time, and I can't wait to be of service!

Joe is great with animals, as he's been around them all his life. Whenever he was with my dogs he treated them like one of his own. On one occasion, my dog had been suffering from dry skin and Joe was with him on the day he was supposed to get his medicated bath. I had only briefly mentioned this to Joe and I had just planned on doing it the day I returned. To my surprise Joe gave my Oreo his bath even though I hadn't asked him to. He also spends lots of time playing wit my dogs. There have been a few occasions where I've come home and Joe is outside with them playing fetch. My dogs always love it when Joe comes to take care of them and I can most certainly tell they get the care, love, and attention they deserve. I definitely would recommend trusting Joe with your animals. They'll have a blast and you'll be able to relax knowing they're in good hands.
