About Joanne

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I offer a loving and active home-away-from-home vacation experience to ANY breed/size dog!

Shy? Aggressive? High energy? Giant breed? Doesn't matter! I have a lot of experience will all temperaments.

Do you own a breed often considered to be "aggressive"?

Is your dog shy or timid?

Has it been a while since you went on vacation because you don't feel comfortable leaving your dog with anyone?

Well that is all about to change! Welcome to K9bnb, your dog's 2nd best friend!

My name is Joanne and I don't have any children or resident dogs in my home, so I accept and have experience with dogs that may not do well around a bunch of other dogs! (I just cannot accepts dogs with cat aggressions.)

I am an active person and love exploring the local area. Doing so is always more fun with a dog! A pup staying with me can expect to chase waves at the doggie beach in Long Beach or go hiking on any one of the extensive trails nestled around the greater LA area.

If your dog is less active, no worries! I live close to plenty of nice parks in which to walk and sniff.

Rest & relaxation time will include chilling on the couch or basking in the sun in the fully enclosed outdoor area.

Each overnight stay includes as many short walks daily as needed, at least one hour of solid exercise outside two times daily and lots of belly rubs, cuddles, playing and just overall TLC!

Rest assured your baby will have a successful vacation full of lots of fun and R&R here at K9bnb!

No extra fees!! Price includes free pick up/drop off, meds if needed.

Joanne is an avid animal lover. I have known her for 19 years and I would absolutely trust her with my dog. I once owned a Siberian Husky and she would care for him anytime I went on vacation or simply needed someone to watch/walk him due to my work schedule. I have always known her to own at least one or two dogs and they are always treated like family.

To Whom it may concern, and all those who love their Pups,
I have known Joanne Carroll for close to ten years and have yet to meet someone
with more love for dogs. She grew up in the Midwest surrounded by horses, dogs, cats and
all other manner of critters, and has a passion for their happiness, health, and well being.
After the Katrina disaster , Joanne rescued/adopted 2 dogs. One of them, a Rottweiler, she found roaming the streets. She took him in, named him Saint, and they were constant companions for years, until he sadly passed. She also found Cajun, another large breed that now has a forever home in the Silicon Valley.
Trained in Fitness and Nutrition, she also knows how to use this knowledge for her beloved animal friends.
I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a loving and highly skilled friend of canines!!
Yours truly, Greg Caudill

Joanne has been training and raising horses and dogs her whole life and has an instinctual understanding of what an amimal needs and how to handle them with a gentle but firm hand. She has always had big dogs - a German Shepard/Retriever mix, Rottweilers, a Husky, a Catahoula - and knows how to handle a wide range of doggie dispositions. I have a potentially problematic pitbull who needs undivided attention when walked, and she always knew how to make sure he stayed safe and behaved, while also lavishing him with all the love and snuggling that he wanted. There's no one I'd trust more with my pup!

Joanne is wonderful and my Bull Terrier loves her! I frequently work in the LA area (I live in NorCal) and need to board Kiko for extended periods. Kiko is very active and needs lots of attention. Joanne takes her to the Beach (Kiko is crazy about the beach), on plenty of walks and she will even take her on SUPing (stand up paddleboarding). When I show up to get Kiko, I can tell she wants to stay longer. I feel confident that Joanne will always take the best care of my dog. Super impressed with Joanne!

Joanne is a great dog lover and great sitter for large and aggressive breeds. Since she has no other dogs at this time and works from home, she can give full attention to you pup. She has experience with older dogs and dogs that may require medication administration needs.

Her apartment has a nice outdoor enclosed secure space. Her home is close to a great park and in a nice residential area.

This host would be great for those who need a last minute booking or have a dog that doesn't get along with other dogs!
Joanne was so nice! She took great care of my little nugget while I was away. She sent me photos everyday which was great because I definitely missed my pup. I would use her again in a heart beat.
Thank goodness for Joanne! She followed up quickly on our request for daycare and she took care of Tyson like he was her own. I received several pictures throughout the day which really put our minds at ease. She also took our energetic senior dog for a few very long walks!

Thank you, Joanne, for taking care of our baby on Thanksgiving Day for us. He came home happy and tired.
