About Joanne

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Tender Loving Care given 24/7...I specialize in elderly, and special needs dogs that need extra attention.....I have worked with dogs professionally my entire life. I LOVE dogs, and spending time with them. I treat all dogs as if they were my own. Our time together would consist of indoor play time and outdoor playtime. Problem eaters are no trouble, also I am experienced with oral medicine and injections. Below are some of my accomplishments with dogs. While my professional experience is with dogs, I have had and cared for cats, birds, reptiles, horses, goats, cattle, rabbits, chickens, etc.

Juno (my dog) and I have fostered many dogs, and cats. Juno is a mentor dog, So we (Juno and I) do a lot of volunteer work with traumatized rescued dogs.
Juno traveled over 7,000 miles with me, staying in hotels, and walking aboard ships, even standing over Niagara falls on a bridge by my side.

When I picked up Reba after her Vacation with Joanne and Juno I picked up a happy little dog. Knowing that she was being cared for by a true professional as well as a caring canine friend sure made my own vacation more stress free.

Joanne is my Sophie's new 'home away from home mommy.' This was mine and Sophie's first time boarding away from home and it couldn't have gone better. Sophie is 12 years old and 90 percent blind and deaf. I wanted someone who is with her all the better. Sophie is 12 years old and 90 percent blind and deaf. I wanted someone who is with her all the time because of her age and disabilities. Joanne even figured out why Sophie had been 'off' eating twice daily: something I'd been trying to figure out. Sophie ate twice daily and was smiling and happy when I picked her up. Sophie gives Joanne 4 paws rating ???? ( the highest rating) and I give her 5+ stars. ??????

From our meet n greet, I knew Joanne would be a perfect match for Millie. Millie can be shy, but she went right up to her and kissed her. Millie also liked her dog Juno. While I was away Millie experienced some urinary problems. Joanne contacted also liked her dog Juno. While I was away Millie experienced some urinary problems. Joanne contacted me right away and I told her what I do when this happens and she was more than willing to try it. Millie was better within the hour. Joanne really watches out for and cares for dogs like should would her own. I was very pleased! Millie is looking forward to returning soon.
