About Johanna

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a mom to two pet-loving kids and two small dogs. We love small dogs around here and would LOVE to have your little one spend the night with us. (15 pounds and under please). We guarantee they will have a fantastic time with us. We treat our guest dogs like members of the family, and they receive plenty of attention and hugs. Since the dogs receive so much personal attention, we don't take more than two guest dogs at at time for overnight boarding (unless they are all from the same family. If that's the case, we take up to three).

Your dog will spend time relaxing in our family room and running around with our two dogs in our safe, enclosed backyard. If they need extra attention, I will bring them into my home office while I'm working. When my kids get home from school, they will play with the dogs and wear them out!

Looking for a doggy daycare for your little guy or gal while you're at work? I can help with that too! We would love having your kid/pet-friendly dogs here for the day to play in our safe, enclosed back yard or rest inside. Drop off is anytime after 7 am, pick up by 7 pm.

**Please note:

If your dog "marks" inside the house during the meet & greet we will discuss the need for a belly band available at Petco for around 15 dollars or online for around 10 dollars. Unfortunately, we can no longer take in unfixed male dogs due to marking issues. I am willing to work with fixed males and all females.

Dog Vacay bills in 24 hour increments. I give a 2-hour grace period, after that day care rate of $20 applies. Please inform us of approximate drop-off and pick-up times when you make your reservation. (Stays three nights and over exempt.)

If your pets are more comfortable in their own home, I'm here to help with that too! I will feed, play and walk them. This is a great deal if you have multiple pets since I charge per visit (not per pet) and I will discount walk fees if I am already there for a pet visit. And I'll visit pets of ANY size and (almost) any species. I have experience with cats, reptiles, and mice. I think the only pet I won't visit is a tarantula :-)

Anything else you need? Just let me know. If you have any special needs, questions, or concerns, please contact us via this website. I'm organized and professional... and you can go on your vacation worry-free!

Johanna was awesome with my "Louie" I will hire her again.
Johanna and her family welcomed my two dogs and they seemed to enjoy their stay, we will use her again in November for overnight.
I am on day three, and my dog from pictures and video looks so, so happy! This is so important to me. Johanna and her family make my dog feel like part of their family. I will only leave my dog with her. I can enjoy my trip knowing he is loved and cared for in the way; Louie needs it. I love how Johanna sends me pics and video! YAY YOU! I know you understand those of us who consider their dog a family member!

Very good to our dog and very patient with us as it was our first time using a doggie sitter. I definitely recommend her and will use her services again!
Highly recommended! Would definitely book with Johanna again!
I really wish I could post a picture of my Lovey after her day at Johanna's house. She came home totally exhausted and content. This was the first time I've left Lovey with someone that wasn't my family and within 15 minutes of meeting Johanna and her adorable fur babies, I knew she was in good hands. It is truly a blessing to have the piece of mind knowing that she took the time to text me throughout the day and sent me a picture of Lovey smiling. Thank you again Johanna, and I'm looking forward to the next time.

Johanna was great with emailing photos and updates throughout the day, and she made Molly feel right at home. A great place for a daycare or overnight visit, we will use Johanna again!
Johanna and her family took such great care of our puppy while we were out of town for 2 nights! I loved getting the video and picture updates while we were away. Johanna quickly replied to all of our texts, and was very flexible with pick up and drop off times. She has the perfect set up in her home, and two awesome dogs for our puppy to play with. We would highly recommend her for doggy sitting!

We had a good time staying at Johanna's place.
Johanna and her family were very nice. She spent time with me and my dog before we left. We walked my dog and her 2 dogs together so that they could get to know each other. My dog was able to be one of the family while we were away for 1 week. I felt so much better knowing she was in a home and not at a kennel!

Loved the pics that were sent and would have also loved to see video. Overall, glad we took her to Johanna!

Johanna was a great help our two little ones. My husband and I were taking three week vacation and most of the time we take the dogs but with so much going on during our vacation we needed someone to watch them for that long. Both of our families were all on the vacation with us so we had no one to watch them. We never put our dogs in dog kennels or overnight kennels so we thought the kennels were our only option. Till we found this great website where people near by can take care of your dogs. Joanna opens her home to so many dogs a year and she and her family all help out. One of our dogs does not get along with new dogs in a new environment so Johanna was able to check up on the dogs since she lives so close by. We met a few days before so her and the dogs could get to know each other and it all was great. Johanna sent photos and videos daily so there was no worries about the dogs. We were able to enjoy our vacation and relax knowing they are in good hands. I hope this helps someone who may not know much about this company or the people working for them. I do know that Johanna was the best and she will definitely take good care of your dogs we will be using her again in the future

We have never used a dog sitter before so wasn't sure how to choose one and would I really get what I pay for. We found Johanna on Dogvacay and so impressed with her services. Our 2 puppies are so dependent on us and need a lot of love. Johanna came by before we left and met us and the puppies we explained everything to her and we felt very comfortable. On our vacation she sent daily pictures and videos which we loved and upon our return the puppies looked like they were well taken care of. Johanna is very thorough, really cares and so helpful!!!! Definitely recommend. We will be using her services again.

We were satisfied leaving our puppy with Johanna. Since it was the first time she had been away from us, we were pleased that our precious pet was treated very well.
Once again, Johanna took in my little guy like a member of the family, sent picture updates while I was away, and generally took great care of him. Highly recommend.
I had special requests and she managed to handle all of them. Johanna kept me up to date with what was going on and sent plenty of pictures. My dogs had lots of play time with her kids.
Johanna always provides amazing service. We were happy to get her on short notice!
We found Johanna and her family to be very professional and simply amazing. Our pups were like one of their own and were very much loved by all.
She took pictures for us to view and felt bad to hear that we did not see them because we had no internet. Looking at them afterwards we could tell our pups were happy and felt very much at home.
we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
Thank you
Frieda R.

Johanna was and always is the consummate professional! She checked in when she did her visits and sent us pictures so we knew our dogs were happy and healthy. I knew our dogs were under great care!
Johanna is a great host to my Yorkie Mickey. I had to go out of town for a week on business, so this would be a test on how Mickey would do with me gone for so long and well Johanna made sure Mickey did not miss a beat about me not being there. Mickey of course was happy to see me when i got back but not in a hurry to leave Johanna's. He had a great time and seem to have gotten more comfortable with her two dogs as well. Thanks for making Mickey's stay wonderful!

Johanna was an awesome host! She sent pictures at least once a day, and often twice a day. My dogs had a fun vacation and really like Johanna. I would recommend her to other dog parents, and I WILL use her again! She is so wonderful!!

(I tried to rate the 5 stars but the website wouldn't cooperate. She is a 5 star host!!)

This was Mickey's second visit with Johanna and he had a great time. He was more at home this time around and Johanna provided me with photos of him interacting with her family. Thanks Johanna!
Johanna took my dog in as one of her own, and I can't tell you the peace of mind I had knowing he had a nice family to visit with while I was away. Sending the occasional picture update was also really great. I will absolutely contact Johanna again next time I need a dog sitter I can trust.

This was Mickey's third overnite stay with Johanna and he always seems to come back to us refresh and happy. Johanna always makes Mickey feel like he is family. Thank you Johanna!
Johanna made Mickey's first Dog vacay, very comfortable. The understanding about a dogs first stay was very important to me and Johanna was great in making Mickey comfortable in her home. It was great to find a caring person as Johanna. I will definitely be making her Mickey's dog sitter.

Thank you Johanna

Joe and Mickey

Annika had a wonderful stay with her new friends. All went very well and I felt very comfortable leaving her with Johanna and her family. All the pictures that I received were adorable! Thanks to Johanna for opening her home to doggies who need a vaca!

Johanna was amazing! She came to my house to meet my dog and introduce hers to him. She sent me pics while we were out of town of how he was doing which really warmed our heart. A nice unexpected treat. I would recommend her to anyone. Responsive and reliable.
