About joshua

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Note* My service rates change during the busier seasons but if you we agree to a price then that is what I will honor.

My name is josh and I run prestige petcare, a at home percare buisness. I have been taking care of dogs and cats my entire life and even worked in my families pet boarding and grooming shop for 3 yrs. I have experience with a variety of sizes and breeds of dogs so you can have the peace of mind having your dog stay with me. I provide 24 hr care and take my job seriously. I walk all my boarding dogs once daily.I also provide a very regimented schedule so that all my dogs do not get restless and are always entertained. I have a 700 sq ft backyard as well as a 300 sq ft front yard. I take bookings on a first come first serve basis and usually require a meet and greet to go over the details of the stay.

All My husband and I can say is that my experience was excellent with Joshua . Loki is in good hands ! Debra K :)
Josh did a great job with Joey and Bailey they both enjoyed their stay and we already booked our next stay.
My dog became ill during her stay while I was far out of state. Joshua called me immediately, and took her to my vet at my request, charging nothing extra. My dog was very ill and Joshua stayed in contact with me, calling other vets and the doggy Vacay insurance providers to help me gain information as I was unable to come home for several days. Additionally, Joshua gave me over 400$ to help toward my dog's huge vet bill's !!! My dog's illness was in no way caused by Joshua's Vacay business. He runs a clean, caring, safe environment, for dogs and provides a lot of walks thru out the day. He is dedicated to providing dogs the best vacation ever!
Joshua was able to accommodate us at the last minute (for a holiday, at that), which was really great. He was very knowledgeable about dogs. Fancy came home calm and happy. I'd be happy to send her there again for care.
Our dogs seemed happy and well taken care of :)
Joshua was easy to work with.
Joshua took care of our 2 dogs in our home for 5 days. He went beyond and ground their nails for us. Even brought his own equipment for that. I was very pleased with getting daily texts and pictures the first day. The pricing is reasonable. I will definitely use him again.
My dog hadn't been to day care in a while and he needed some help re-socializing with the other dogs. Josh was great at helping him get back into social mode and giving him alone time when necessary. My dog comes home happy and exhausted - exactly what he needed!
Josh was wonderful very personable and he took very good of charlie wore him out this dog never sleeps in the car I had to do a last minute boarding and Josh was very kind and respectful and responded quickly if I ever need boarding again I would definitely remember Josh and recommend to friends and family I'd rather go to home boarding then office boarding anyday
Very happy to come home to happy and clean dogs! Josh is very professional and serious about his job taking care of our babies. I had confidence knowing I could trust him, and was rest assured my dogs were taken very well care of. Will be using him again for sure.
Our dog was well cared for. Communication was a bit difficult but not overly so.
Due to the disposition of my older dog, I really needed someone to come to my home to walk and feed my two dogs, a laid-back Chocolate Lab and active Boxer. Joshua responded in a prompt fashion, and worked with me to meet my needs. Joshua met with my wife and I prior to the booking to determine if he was the right man for the job. He impressed us with his knowledge of dogs, answered all our questions, and worked with us to develop a care plan. One dog had a recent altercation, and his ear needing tending (peroxide cleaning & antibiotic cream applied). Joshua tended to our nursing needs, and our dog has healed. Joshua sent a message at the time of each walk (3X times/day - 30 minute each), as a courtesy confirmation.
He was the most professional of dog caretakers that I have ever used in 40 years. Joshua's professionalism, vet-like knowledge, dedication, compassion, caring and personality are unrivaled. These traits provided me with complete trust and peace of mind so I could enjoy my time away.
Joshua is great with Oreo. Every time i bring Oreo there he is so happy when he comes home. I have brought him other places in the past in different towns and he hasn't acted like he acts after leaving Joshua's .. He is a pleasure to work with as well. My flight got changed to the day before i scheduled and I called and he took him right in. Thank you Joshua!
Joshua took great care of Maxwell during his stay. He always kept us updated on his needs. We would highly recommend Joshua.
Skully was well taken care of! I will be passing the contact along to other people I know!
We were very happy with Jager's stay at Joshua's. We were out of the country but were still in close contact via FaceTime and text messaging. We can warmly recommend Joshua for excellent dog care.
Josh is great! He works well with our very high energy 1 yr old boxer girl. While away he sends pictures and updates us on how she is doing. Knowing she is in good hands... taking walks and playing with the other dogs makes traveling a lot more enjoyable for us!
Josh is one of the hardest working people I've ever met. I was sold when I saw how he interacted with several dogs on our meet and greet. My dogs were comfortable right away. You can tell this is a passion for him when he talks about the dogs in his care and his vision for meeting the needs of dogs and their families.
My pup is high energy which didn't seemed to bother Josh. We got daily updates and our dog was pooped after picking him up which tells me he played a lot which is great!
Our dog seemed fine after her visit, however it would have been nice to see where she was spending her time.
Ramsey had a great time. Josh is excellent. Thanks
Joshua was very gentle with my older dog and took a lot of care with her grooming. I was very happy with her hair cut and will definitely go back.
thanks for introducing me to dogvacay
Joshua was amazing for us during the first time we left our dogs. Chase and Teenie were well cared for and seemed very happy and playful when we picked them up. They are pitts and he had no qualms about taking what some label as an 'aggressive breed'. knowing that applies to only aggressive dogs and NOT breed specific. We would recommend him again, both him and the facility - his home were outstanding!
Sadie and Piper had a great time with Joshua Saturday and Sunday. He took the girls on walks and sent pictures to us so that we could see the girls having a good time. They were so tired after we picked them up, that they fell asleep in the car on the way home. That never happens. Lol
They are usually right at the window, looking out.
This was the first time I have ever had to find someone to watch my dog so I had a million questions and a great deal of anxiety at drop off. Josh took the time to answer each question in detail and made this process so much easier. The experienced groomer at his location also brushed Siren and helped her shed her coat - best brush out I've ever seen. Siren's a husky so all of the husky owners out there know how difficult it is to get rid of that undercoat. Overall I had a very pleasant experience and more importantly, so did Siren.
This was the second time Josh has dog sit for us. He was excellent! Very professional and you can tell he really loves what he does. We will definitely book with him again!
Joshua was great with my dog Pippi. It was my first experience with a dog sitter and I will definitely use him again.
Josh was great. This was the first time I left my 3yr old, 90 lb hound mix (Ryley) for 10 days, who not to mention has Epilepsy. Josh and his helper were able to keep a close eye on him and were able to give him his medicine throughout the day. When I picked Ryley up, he was excited to see me but he definitely seemed content on being there. I was updated with pictures. I will def. be using Josh for boarding the next time I have to go away!
Josh was very knowledgeable and caring with our pet. We were very comfortable leaving our Romeo with him. Will definitely be back!
Joshua gave our boys the personal attention they just never get at mass boarding. Even though one of our boys had some behavior problems, we were welcomed back anytime and even put us on our preferred customer list. We encourage anyone who uses mass boarding to check out their local doggie vacay. It is not only cost effective but your dog will get constant supervision and a lotta love. Almost just like home.
Josh is very knowledgable about dogs and has a great environment for them at his home. The back yard is well fenced in so there is no chance of a pet getting out. Our dogs seemed pretty happy and we would absolutely use Josh again in the future. Scott
Joshua was very good at communicating and quick to respond. I wasn't able to attend the meet and greet, but my boyfriend did and he felt very comfortable leaving Izzy in his care. He sent us a pic update and was ready to respond anytime we had any questions. We would let Izzy stay there again! Thanks, Josh!
Josh was an amazing stay for Duke. When I got him he was happy and looked like he had a great time. Duke will definitely be a constant visitor.
We left Crash with Josh for 7 days which is the longest we have been away from him and Josh did a great job! We got updates and pictures and Crash was very happy when we saw him to pick him up! They went to the dog park and beach and played with the other dogs in Jogh's house! He took good care of our boy! We do recommend Josh!
Joshua was very easy to work with and took very good care of my 15 year old dog. This is such a better option then a kennel!
Josh is very knowledgeable and caring, he was a great sitter for Riley. Riley loved him and we felt comfortable leaving him in his care overnight. The next time we are in the Indian Rocks Beach area we will definitely have Josh on our list to call for pet sitting.
Karen and Mike
Rufus was well cared for and loved being with the other dogs. Joshua is extremely knowledgeable and the home is very dog friendly. All the dogs there are happy and social. All in all a good first experience with DogVacay at Prestige Petcare.
Joshua was prompt in his communication and appeared to be invested in the well being of my dog's stay at his home. I am sure I will use him again in the future.
Cannot explain how nice it is to meet Josh in the mornings and every time he is always smiling no matter how early I make him wake up to take Dixie. Best sitter in Pinellas/ Hillsborough County!
Completely forgot that I was working late and didn't pack dinner for Dixie and Josh didn't even bat an eye. He had no problem feeding my girl nothing but the best :-)
Working 12-14 hour shifts get rough but not having to worry about whether my pup has been let out or if she has be locked in a crate the whole sure takes stress off. Couldn't have found a better sitter for my girl!
What a lifesaver! I wasn't sure what I was going to do when my uncle told me he couldn't watch Dixie while I was at work and then I found Josh! Dixie loves him, his backyard and all the playmates she can run around with!
Josh it outstanding! Dixie loves spreading the day with him and all of her friends!
I was very happy with the service Joshua provided. He responded quickly when I emailed or texted him. He scheduled a meet and greet before the stay. This made me a lot more comfortable about leaving our dog with him. By the time of my trip I already knew she liked him and that he had a big enough play area for her. She is very dog friendly but I like that he confirms that the dogs he takes are dog friendly before he agrees to watch them.
In the past when I have picked her up from a traditional kennel she has pulled as hard as she can towards the door as soon as I have her leash. When I picked her up from Joshua's house she was happy to hang around and smell the yard while we got her stuff loaded up. There was no pulling towards the car, so I know she was comfortable staying in his home.
I'm happy to give Joshua my highest recommendation. He provides his guests with a warm and friendly environment to which they can comfortably settle in. My Zoe can be very skittish and has a good amount of separation anxiety but she took a liking to Joshua almost immediately.

He runs his business professionally and maintains a punctual schedule. Josh really makes things easy for his customers. We absolutely will be using his services in the future!
We've only had Addie for about 1-1/2 months and this is the first time we left her and traveled, so we were somewhat concerned how she'd be while we were away. Josh took fantastic care of Addie and stayed in touch with texts and photos. Throughout it was clear that Addie was happy and healthy. We had warned Josh that Addie was not self-regulating about food and that she would probably try to eat other dogs' food as well, but Josh made sure she only got at her own food and in the correct amounts. When we picked her up after being gone for 8 days, Addie was thrilled to see us, but she wasn't needy or nervous at all. I think Addie had fun and I will definitely be using Josh again the next time we travel!
Joshua is a sincere gentle young man. He has the advantage of a mother that is also a groomer. They love dogs and will endeavor to care for and protect your pet. Ann
My dog, Bailey had never stayed with someone that he didn't already know before. He's very used to his routine, so I was a little bit worried. Joshua was great! He's patient with the dogs; provides plenty of exercise and supervision; and has his home set up well. He was also very flexible with my drop-off and pickup times.
Joshua did a great job. He was very thorough and conscientious. We will use him again.
Josh and his mom are so clearly dog people, and that's exactly who you want taking care of your pet!
There were several other dogs there for our puppy to socialize with, and I really think she got a lot out of it. Also, no crate at bedtime. They cut her nails, and the rates were great. We will definitely bring our puppy back the next time we're vacationing in the area. Thanks guys!
Josh was great, I was able to text or call him to see how my dog was doing. My dog was very comfortable there! Great Job!
I can't say enough about Joshua and his service. He was very accommodating, adjusting his schedule for our "meet and greet" meeting. He was super nice, friendly, and most importantly great with our dog Pinky. He spent time to get to know her, know her needs, and set up a schedule to help her adjust.

He was very knowledgeable and spent extra time to really make sure everyone was happy and comfortable. Overall, it was a great experience and I would highly recommend Joshua to anyone needing someone to watch their furry family members.
Joshua took very good care of Brody. I would take him there again.
Sebastian and Selena seemed very happy and well takes care of when I picked them up. We will definitely use Josh again.
Joshua was very nice and professional and was very experience with dogs. I would recommend himto anyone who needs someone to watch their dog or dogs. Alan A.
Our Nikki is scared of his own shadow. I cannot believe that he started catching the tennis ball and actually went out in the backyard with all the traffic noise. This was a big step for our sheltie. Joshua and his mother were fabulous.
Lulu had a great time at Joshua's. He walked her and had a large backyard for her to play in. They even cooked a healthy Christmas dinner the dogs. The dogs were welcome to sleep in the bed with him or in her own bed. i would definitely have Lulu stay again.
This was my very first experience with using a dog sitter. I needed someone to watch my pup over the holidays for a week. I'm so glad I went with Joshua! He made the entire experience so comfortable and stress-free. He was able to respond right away and answered all my questions. His location is nice and clean and friendly for dogs. His prices are very reasonable and his services are wonderful. When i came to pick up my dog, she seemed healthy and extremely happy. They took care of my dog, her equipment and all her food needs. Joshua and his mom are great professionals in this business and i look forward to using their services again! Would highly recommend to anyone for their dog sitting needs.
Josh and his mom were A+ in caring for my Zoey. They were attentive to her every need. They have an obvious love for animals and go above and beyond to make your dog a part of their family during it's stay. They also have years of experience in caring for animals. Zoey was there over Christmas and they even fed her a doggie Christmas dinner. If you need a place for your little member of the family to stay and you want peace of mind to go along with it, then Josh and his mom provide the perfect atmosphere for your little one. Lot's of play, love and attention.
