About Josh

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey, my name is josh. One of my deepest loves in life is animals, I feel this special connection with them, sometimes stronger then i do with people,as pets can sometimes feel like a much better friend then a human can, I call myself the gentle giant because I'm a very big guy, 6 feet tall and a little bit over 250, I'm very strong so i can handle strong dogs on a leash, yet at the same time, give them attention and play with them. I'm experienced with dogs, I can usually tell what they want based on their mood. I'm very good with keeping animals busy, when they want to play I make sure to play with them and give them attention, and then take a break and do my own thing for a little while depending on how young they are and how much they want to play, for older dogs i understand that it's a bit more tiring and they don't want to play as much as puppies do, So i'll play with them once every so often. I hope you choose me for your dog sitting needs.

Josh is great with pets, escpecially dogs! He has a calm and comfortable presence around them. Be it big dogs or small dogs, whether they jump on him or bark or play rough, he's friendly with everyone! He's very patient as well, even when they're doing something they shouldn't... I've seen him play tug of war and fetch with his dog with real enthusiasm, because he actaully has fun spending time with pets. I've even seen him wrestling in the grass and dirt with his dog, which takes commitment as a pet owner.
If you're considering Josh as your pet-sitter, I'm warning you that your pet might just like him more than its owner!

Our experience with Josh could not have been any better! From the moment we met Josh and introduced him to our dog, we knew we could relax knowing that she was in good hands. He was so sweet to our dog, and listened carefully to any concerns we had. Josh communicated with us throughout her stay, sending us pictures and updates. We knew we had made an excellent choice when we noticed how attached our dog had grown to Josh when we arrived to pick her up. I would highly recommend Josh to anyone!
