About Joanne

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
No worries when you go on vacation....your pups can have a Vacay of their own!

Medium and Large Dogs, about 30 lbs and up are welcome. Mine are large
and tend to play rough, so for your dog's safety, I keep to that guideline.

-Secure Yard
-Observation Cameras
-Handicapped Ramp

I provide Dog boarding and daycare for medium to large dogs in my home. I have five dogs of my own, and they would tell you:

We have fun all day long, roaming in the big fenced in yard, playing with all the toys, rough housing with each other, and taking dips in our wading pool when it's warm. We have the run of the house, with lots of cushy blankets and beds for comfy napping. Sometimes we get to go for walks but only one or two at a time, our mom says we pull too hard in a big group. We live in the woods, so it's fun to bark at the deer and squirrels. We have a long ramp for our senior friends, and a doggie door so we can go in and out easily but only when our mom wants us to.

Our mom has always loved dogs, and she says she has always had at least one. She believes in gentle training, so we usually listen, except for Trace who can't seem to stop counter surfing. One pup, Quincy , is deaf so he's learning sign language! We sleep in mom's bedroom, with lots of cushy places to rest. We look forward to visits with new friends!

This was Maggie's second stay with Joanne. The first stay was only for a day, but this time Maggie stayed for 2 nights. Maggie started to get excited as soon as we pulled into Joanne's drive. She was really happy to see Joanne and all her dog friends. We are glad with her reaction and know that she likes it there.
Our dog Maggie went to stay with Joanne for a day. Maggie has never been away from us and we wanted to try just a day to see how things went. Joanne introduced her dogs one at a time and all went well. That evening when we picked Maggie up we could tell that she had made friends there and was happy. We are going to try an overnight sometime in the near future.
I am very pleased with the care that was given to Max. I received pictures and text messages everyday. Max came home today and seems very happy. I would definitely use and recommend Joanne.
Joanne was great from start to finish. She eased our Chocolate Lab into a new environment with ease and made him feel at home. He can't wait to visit her again! -Ken
Joanne was great with our dog! She sent us lots of picture updates while we were away. We knew she was in great hands! Thanks joanne!
Bruno had such a great time staying with JoAnne! He has very bad separation anxiety but she knew how to handle it and was so sweet to him. She took care of him like he was her own and sent us pictures and updates so we knew he was being taken care of! JoAnne was also flexible with when we could pick up/drop off Bruno which was a big help on what was a crazy trip for us. We highly recommend JoAnne to anyone heading to the Stroudsburg area!
Adie loved being at Joanne's ... she spent a lot of time running around outside getting all of her energy out :) Joanne took great care of her ... so nice to know your best friend is happy while you are away ...
Joanne did an excellent job taking care of Adie for us while we were away. She has a large fenced yard where Adie spent a lot of time burning off energy and playing with Joanne's dogs. Looking forward to Adie's next visit with Joanne!
Joanne was loving and caring. Joanne truly treats your babies with the same love and care you would. thank you Joanne.
As always, wonderful commmunication, and the pictures are a nice touch. Max was so tired from playing with all his friends, he barely made to bed. Thanks Joanne, see ya soon!
I contacted Joanne after I had to leave town quickly on a work trip, she happily accepted Max on very short notice. Her dogs and Max got along great and I was delighted to get several updates with pictures that evening, and the next morning. Max had a great time, and I was happy he was being taken care of so well. I'll be calling Joanne again.
