About Joshua

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We know what it's like to need to go out of town on short notice or even when we want to take a vacation. There's always the hustle and bustle of getting everything prepared...but the biggest question is always: who is going to take care of our girls? As fur-parents of two medium-sized, high-energy pups we understand how difficult it is to find responsible people that you can rely on to take care of your fur-babies. We are a young, professional couple living & working in the Washington, D.C. area. Of course we both grew up with pets in our home life. In our adult life, we have raised our own Australian shepherd from 8 weeks to 3 years and we have also rescued and rehabilitated a dog that was surrendered to a high-kill shelter. We helped this poor little girl overcome severe separation anxiety and helped her become the star of the dog park who loves people and other doggie friends! This is by far our biggest accomplishment. Furthermore, Rachel worked for the Division of Laboratory Animal Medicine and has a background caring for a variety of animals (dogs included). Josh has the ability to work remotely from home as needed and is able to make sure your pups get all the attention that they need during the day! In addition, we have our own personal form of transportation and will be taking your dog along with ours to various dog parks in the area (unless of course there is a medical or behavioral reason your pup can't tag along). Both of us have experience training dogs and (more importantly) training people to understand their furry companions, and so we are also able to offer training sessions.

My dog lover Josh and his wife. They are amazing hosts who go out of their way to accommodate any of my requests. They have a great location for drop off next to my work. I highly recommend them and I felt so relieved to find them. I will be using them regularly to take care of my dog.

Joshua and Rachel were amazing! They dropped my dog off when I returned and even gave her a toy to keep. They sent updates so I knew she was OK and getting love. I think my dog may prefer staying there than at home!
Joshua was great with our dog, George. He seemed very happy and tired when he got home. Communication and drop off/pickup was super easy. Thanks!
I've used Joshua's boarding service twice. I found him and his fiance to be very friendly and accommodating. Each time, they went above and beyond what was expected. They have two lovely, well behaved dogs that play nicely with others.
Thank you!!
My pup had a great time playing at Joshua's house and the dog park with his 2 pups! Joshua was very accommodating and planning was a breeze! We'll definitely use Joshua for another stay next time I'm out of town!!
Josh and Rachel were great hosts for Max! He was nice groomed when we got back from our trip and he had gone to the dogpark multiple times over his visit. The hosts consistently updated us on Max's adjustment to the home and I learned that Max likes to sing. They were great hosts and we would use them again for sure!

Josh and Rachel were great! Very accommodating and kept me updated on my dog Missy's stay. I could tell right away they were dog people and would love my dog the way I do. I will be booking again with Josh!
They were great! Very flexible at the last minute and put my shy dog at ease unbelievably quickly. Kept me updated and relaxed, knowing the dogs were well taken care of :)
Josh and Rachel are awesome! They were super responsive and flexible when I made a last-minute request. They took such great care of my pup Howie and sent me updates and pictures all weekend. Howie had the best time with their two pups too! They went to the dog beach and dog parks and even gave Howie a bath after he went swimming. He came home tired and happy. I'd highly recommend Josh and Rachel - I'm already scheduling additional stays for Howie while I'm out of town later this month.
