About Johanna

23 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Note: at this time, I only offer sitting for dogs; I don’t currently accept cats. Thank you!


I wake up at 8 am to let out my four personal, paws-y pups to potty. Then I prepare them their first daily meal... While they eat I get ready to take them on a 10 minute walk around the neighborhood. My two little guys ( Ren and Momo- Chihuahua's) are both about 9 years old... and Mystic my big little girl is about two years old. During the day we play in the large back yard... running around... playing ball... sniffing around... and playing tag and hide and seek.... They also have a room in the house all for themselves on rainy days when we have to bring the party inside. On really nice days I like to take the tribe to the dog park to ware them out... Around 7 pm I prepare the dogs dinner. The dogs always have fresh filtered water.Mystic likes to stay outside on some nice days. Momo, Ren, and Mystic are all potty trained and very loving and friendly dogs. I also live my my partner Derek who works all day... usually from 5 am to 6 pm... So he is also here to help me out around the house! We decided to have limited furniture because we have dogs and stay active and enjoy being outdoors as much as possible.

NOTE: I may, at any time, board multiple dogs at any given day. If you are not comfortable with your dogs being large groups of dogs I advise you to find another sitter that can accommodate to your needs. I am experienced in caring for multiple dogs. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Our dog Roxy had such a great time staying with Johanna! She loved playing with the other dogs. When we dropped her off, we were able to stay awhile...she was "at home" right away. I would def use Johanna again!
We are so grateful to have found Johanna. When we came home from our trip we could tell that our 2 dogs were healthy, happy and taken care of. When you're on vacation, it's a wonderful feeling knowing that you don't have to worry about your pup's livelihood. We will be using Johanna again!

Johanna was absolutely wonderful! I have never left my dog with anyone that I didn't know and really didn't want him in a kennel. I found DogVacay online and I must admit I was a bit nervous dropping him off! I was pleasantly surprised with my whole experience and will defiantly use Johanna again :-) I received videos and pictures while I was gone and my little Jasper had a fabulous time (he slept the rest of the day after I picked him up) and even came home with a new toy.

Johanna is the perfect host and the best dogvacay experience we have had yet. She took care of our rambunctious two rescue dogs with Zen like mastery while we were away for a week. They came back happy relaxed and EXHAUSTED dogs. One of ours can be nervous in new surroundings but he was happy as can be. She has a great house if your pets have been spoiled like ours and allowed on the furniture. She was also gracious with our kids who loved playing with her pups. We really liked that she had sweet dogs of her own so our pups had even more stimulation and clearly her dogs' good behavior rubbed off on ours. She is also good at reading the dogs so putting the little guys aside while the big puppies calm down at the meet and greet. I now know why she has so many repeat guests--she is the best! We are so happy to know our dogs have a wonderful place to stay and get loved on so we can take more vacations ourselves! PS the dogs even got a goodbye toy--how cool is that?

Johanna is professional, genuine and amazing with dogs. We look forward to using her again.
Charlie had a wonderful time with Johanna. He wanted to run back into her house after we walked out! He even came back with a new toy. He can't wait to stay with her and her family again. We were hesitant to try out this service as our baby is family, but I would highly recommend it. Johanna sent pics and loved on Charlie and made him feel special.

Johanna and Derek were amazing with our dog, Fitzgerald, while we were on a 6 day vacation! My husband and I were very nervous about leaving Fitzy behind, but it honestly could not have gone better. They fed him his raw food diet with ease, let him play to his heart's content especially with their dog Mystic, took him for walks and sent me pictures/videos of the great time he was having. They were kind, friendly, respectful and truly wonderful people! Thank you for taking such great care of Fitz!

Finn loved staying with Johanna and Derek! They were also incredibly accommodating and took him in last minute for a holiday weekend!
Johanna was great to our dog. Joy had a fun time there. She was well taken care of. She even wanted to go right back into Johanna's house when we picked her up. Thanks!
Johanna is very professional and took great care of our dog. She sent picture and video updates on a regular basis. We highly recommend her. Thanks Johanna!
Johanna was great from start to finish. We arranged a meet and greet and she took the time to make sure my dog was comfortable at her place and around her dogs (I never felt rushed). Stormie (my dog) had a blast while I was gone and Johanna sent tons of pictures to let me know so. She's so friendly and really treats your dog like her own. I would absolutely recommend her if you need someone to take care of your fur baby.

Another great time for our dog!!
Great place good people and my 2 dogs had a great time!
If you've ever had to travel without your dog for an extended period of time, you know how stressful it can be to leave them. I have a very sweet, 8 year-old lab. In the whole time we have spent together, I've only been away from him about a week at a time. Johanna and Derek watched my dog over the holidays for about 10 days.

I felt so secure and happy about my choice in them. The experience was wonderful. Johanna was so responsive and helpful with Sampson. I know he truly enjoyed his time there, and I felt reassured that he was in a great home, with a sweet family. I highly recommend this home and will certainly set up a return visit if I go out of town for the weekend.

My 10 month old lab Bo stayed with Johanna and Derek for a week and had the best time! They updated me with pictures of the fun Bo was having and it made me feel so good. They were very accommodating. I had a 24 hour flight delay and not only were they happy to keep Bo for that extra unscheduled day, they also brought him home for me. I would definitely book with them again in the future!

Johanna and Derek are absolutely wonderful! Incredibly flexible, wonderfully patient and great a working with the dogs, and as nice as you can imagine. Our dogs loved staying with them, and returned to usee as better dogs. We would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.

Wow. What an awesome experience. I had never used this site before. I've boarded my dog at kennels, but I don't like doing that. I'm so glad I found this as an alternative! Johanna and Derek were spectacular. The house is a great setup for dogs: lots of room in the back yard to play, and a gated area for pups to hang out and eat in.

My dog is a bit nervous, and so I was thrilled when I found out he hadn't whined or been anxious in his overnight stay. When I picked him up this afternoon it was obvious he had a great time and was very comfortable in the setting.

I received several pictures during his stay. It was so obvious that he was having a blast. Will definitely bring my dog back. Highly recommend.

Johanna did a great job with Leeroy! We did a meet and greet first and everyone got along great. She provided updates to let me know it was going well and was very flexible on drop off and pick up, even though my flight kept getting delayed. Thank you for taking care of Leeroy! I'm sure he'll want to come back!

I had my dog stay with Johanna for the day and she had a blast! She didn't want to leave when we came to pick her up. I think Mystic is her new best friend. We had to drop her off early in the morning and she was very accommodating to us. I'd highly recommend her to watch your pooch.

Johanna was amazing with our baby girl!!! She gave regular updates and sent photos of how much fun Viana was having. I would highly recommend Johanna to DogVacay!!!! Thank you for the great experience.
Johanna was a wonderful host to Duke! I felt so comfortable with leaving him there and he very quickly became one of the family. The daily pictures and messages made me feel like Duke was right there with me. He misses them all already. I highly recommend Johanna, she is very welcoming and accommodating to my awkward schedule. I will certainly use her services again!!

Johanna was awesome! I got daily pictures sent to my email (since my phone didn't work out of the country) and updates on how she was doing. All of her dogs got along very well with my pup and she was very easy to reach and very accommodating with pick up times and such. I will be going out of the country again soon and will definitely have Johanna watch Stella again! Highly recommend!

Johanna was the best! She has a very professional attitude and made us feel like our pups were going to be cared for as if they were her own. She sent pics everyday of their activities and Molly and Rudy always looked like they were happy and having a good time. We will definitely be returning and I have told everyone I know that have pets to use DogVacay!

Mystic, Ren, Momo, Johanna, and Derek were amazing hosts. Nala had a great time and Johanna sent pictures each day and provided updates on the days activities. The yard was spacious enough for all for all of the dogs to run around in and Johanna and Derek walked them to wear them out. Being a puppy, we were very happy to have Nala spend time with other dogs for the socialization aspect and the patience that Johanna and Derek had allowing her into their home for a short visit. I would HIGHLY recommend this wonderful couple to sit for your dog!!!

Johanna was wonderful with both my dogs. We felt comfortable and worry free on our trip knowing they were in her care. Johanna sent daily updates about their stay. We could tell they were having fun. Both dogs were clean and she even washed their blankets. We will definitely book with her again. it felt so much better than sticking them in a kennel at the vet office. Completely happy to find her on Dog Vacay. She went to extra step to make their stay wonderful. Very thankful!!
