About Joshua

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
There's almost always someone at the house, so your dog will have plenty of company.

I've got an 9-year-old puggle, who is super mellow.

And I've got a 8-year-old and a 5-year-old human, both of whom are super excited to welcome temporary canine guests. That's why our price is so cheap -- we're doing this for love not for money.

This was the first time we've left our pup with a stranger so I was a bit nervous. Our pup was definitely more nervous tho - she has a ton of energy and is slightly attached to me. I felt completely comfortable tho with Josh. I highly doubt our dog was the easiest but Josh and his daughters were great with her. She actually looked better when we picked her up than when we dropped her off :) If we ever bring our pup back to SF I'd def book him again!
My husband and I were in the San Francisco area for Christmas, staying in a place that does not allow dogs, so we reached out to Joshua.

Joshua was very nice, and our puppy enjoyed his stay. Joshua asked to take Bandit on hikes, which we were pleased about, and also let us pick him up to spend the day with. He also offered to feed bandit with his dog food, since his dog eats the same type. However, some things that could be improved on were:
- My husband and I were never invited past the threshold, and only talked to from the front door. We would've liked to have seen the home where Bandit was staying for the weekend, to make us more comfortable with the environment
- We drove more than 12 hours to get there, and had to drive back on Tuesday, but when we asked what the earliest time was to pick up Bandit, we were told 0830. This was very inconvenient for our drive back to the Phoenix area. We end up working out something where we picked up Bandit a night early. We did not ask Joshua for a refund because it was a last minute choice on our part, but it would have been nice to have been told something more flexible for $40/night
- no pictures of bandit were sent, which would have been nice to see him enjoying his stay

Overall, we appreciated Joshua being available for us, and for allowing us to spend time with our puppy during the weekend. However, a few things would have made us feel more at ease with our choice! Bandit was well cared for, the most important part!
Josh and his family were a great fit for my dog, Darby. He kept me updated on how things were going and sent me pictures of Darby's stay. My dog is a rescue, so can have a hard time warming up to people, but she seemed so happy around Josh's kids and family when we arrived to pick her up. We got delayed due to weather, so needed help for one more night, which Josh told us was no problem! Very helpful and an easy place to leave your dog as you know he/she will be treated with lots of love while you are away.
