About johana

19 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
** For new guests a meet and greet is required prior to making a reservation :)

"My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am." I consider my pets my kids and know that special bond we create with our pets. I owned a small poodle for 17 years who was the love of my life. I cared for her all that time and know the pain of losing a furry baby. I completed an Animal Psychology course to help me better understand your pets and mine. I am very active and love taking the pets out for walks, so they can have some fun and do some exercise. I will take care of your pet just like I care for mine with love and respect. Please reassured that while your pets are with me they will be very well taken care of. I enjoy my time with them and want to make them feel like they are on vacation while boarding at my house! I have a poodle named Penelope who will welcome your dog and would love to have a friend to play with.

Johana was super sweet with our puppy. She watched over her lovingly and diligently and was very flexible about our need to make a last minute reservation. She sent plenty of pictures of our pup playing happily in the yard with her super nice dog. Our puppy was tiny and could fit through Johana's fence, but Johana was prepared - she had a super funny donut thing that our puppy wore on her neck, and worked perfectly to keep her in the yard! Our pup came back happy and full of life, just as when we dropped her off. Johan even gave us a baggie of handmade doggie cookies for our pup! We recommend Johana's services very highly.

This is the best dog sitter I have found around this area. My dog loves going to stay with Johanna and is very well cared for. He loved and taken care of the way I would. Johanna is the best. Your dog will love her and so will you.
My dog loves going to see Johanna and her dog. He is very well cared for and walked daily. He is is the best hands and I don't have to worry about him while I am away. She also sends photos everyday so we can see what he is doing while on doggie vacay.

Johana is a wonderful host: she is kind, knowledgable, dependable and thoughtful. This was the third time our 5-year-old labrador stayed with her.
Johana is very easy to communicate with for setting up reservations, confirming details and answering questions. She sent photos of Josie each day, a wonderful way to 'keep in touch'.

Johana is great and really cares for my dog. He is happy and likes going to her house. He is well cared for.
Johana is a great pet sitter. I never worried about my dog while she watched her. She sent me pictures daily and I was assured she was happy. Thank you Johana!
Piper had the best care and we were thoroughly confident in the way that Piper was cared for. I loved seeing the pictures and it looks like she fit right in with the other dogs. I would definitely recommend Johana and hope to be seeing her again!
I was very comfortable leaving Ben with Johana following our meet and greet. I looked forward to the pictures everyday . Ben seemed to really enjoy her big fenced in yard. Thanks for a great experience!
I was very happy with Johana.. She took excellent care of my puppy and I will definitely use her again. I loved getting pictures of my puppy.
This is our second time to have Johana watch and care for Madonna and Bastian. She does a wonderful job with them and we feel very confident that our "kids" love and appreciate her and the attention and care she provides them while we are away.
Mocha's stay with Johana and Penelope was terrific as always. Thank you !
Awesome Pawsome! Johana is great!
A wonderful experience for Mocha to run and play with Penelope poodle! Thanks again Johana
Johana was super kind, flexible, and sweet to our pup. She baked Maisy a home made treat, and when we expressed concern Maisy might sneak out of her backyard (Maisy is a super skinny italian greyhound), she pulled out a "puppy bumper" and voila! Problem solved.

She sent us lovely pictures during Maisy's stay, and Maisy came back very happy. We could tell she really was comfortable staying with Johana and her friendly dog.

We highly recommend her, and would definitely have her host again when we are in the area!

We left our dog with Johana for four days (no overnights). At first, Charlie had a bit of separation anxiety, but by the 3rd day, he ran right into Johana's house, so I know that he was happy to be there. Johana was very accommodating regarding the hours that we required her services for, and would send us photos of Charlie throughout the day, so that we could see that he was doing fine. It was just wonderful to be able to leave him with Johana while we were out sightseeing and visiting with family, and not have to worry about how he was doing.

A wonderful experience for Mocha and it freed me to attend out-of-town wedding...thanks Johana and for your big smile.
She was great and took really good care of him while we were away. She took better pictures of him than we have. She really was good about sending pictures and updates everyday about him. He was on vacation also and had fun with the other dogs that were there. Would highly recommend Johana as a dog sitter. Will most assuredly use her again.

I can't praise Johana enough! And Mocha LOVES to play with Penelope Poodle. Thanks, Johana
Johana made me feel at ease while leaving Matilda with her. I received daily photos and she promptly responded when I checked up on Matilda.
Johana was a wonderful host to our pup. She was very flexible about changing our daycare to boarding, nice, and gracious. Her own dog played really well with our pup, and Johana even had a "puppy bumber" so our super skinny dog could go out to her back yard safely, without risk of getting through the fence. She sent pictures and videos often, and even baked my dog a homemade treat! I would leave my pup with her again anytime.

I am so grateful to Johana for going out of her way to accomodate my dog's stay request. It was most kind and helped me out. And, Mocha had a great playtime with Penelope and family members. Thanks again Johana!
Mocha thought she was in 7th heaven when she had an overnite with Penelope poodle at Johana's house. They have such fun together. Thanks Johana !
Jadey had a ton of fun with Johana! She kept me updated and sent really great pictures.
Johana is a lifesaver! She helped my puppy get socialized with her dogs, they modeled where to go potty in yard! She administered meds and paid alot of attention to my dog. She is very flexible and she sent me pictures all week! Thank you Johana, we're glad we found you!

Johana is most helpful and takes excellent care of my puppy. She showed me pictures via cellphone and gave me great advice. I am very pleased.
Johana was great. She came by last minute for our meet-n-greet and was very attentive from the start.
She didn't board our 2 kids (dogs), but came by twice a day to take them out for walks, check on them, provide them food and water, and medications.
She was very kind and loving with them. She provided daily pictures and updates.
Johana was a really great and would definitely recommend and use her services again.

Johana and her family were wonderful hosts!! We did a meet and greet early in the week and my two dogs stayed with her Friday-Sunday. She posted pictures a couple of times each day and was great about communicating with me about the dogs. So happy to have reliable, friendly people to watch my pets!! Thank you!

5 star reviews should be specifically reserved for people like Johana!!!! Where to begin... Johana might be the sweetest lady I've ever met. She was absolutely wonderful with my boy Einstein. Anytime I would wonder how he was doing... I would have another photo update of him on a walk, enjoying the beautiful South Florida weather. She sent multiple pictures everyday to keep me connected.

Not only was she amazing with him while he was there but I am still reaping the benefits of her love and attention. Prior to dropping him off with her he was very lazy and possibly depressed. Now that he has returned from Johana he has an extra pep in his step. He's eager to go on walks again and exploring.

Thanks for everything Johana!!!
