About Joe

24 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm glad you decided to consider me to take care of your pet(s)! I first want to mention a couple of things up front that I require. I require meet and greets with all new guests. I also require that all guest pups be up to date on all vaccinations (bordetalla, distemper, and rabies) and this information must be included in your pet's profile.

Having dogs of my own, I know for many of you, like myself, your dogs are very important and finding a sitter that your comfortable with can be challenging. It can also be stressful for your pets as well to be away from home. That is why I strive to provide every guest dog with the same comforts of home and provide a loving and enriching environment for them.

I do work during the day on weekdays but home by 4 or 5 everyday and home on weekends. I have a spare room where your pet will stay while they stay with me. Plenty of room for relaxing with big windows to look out along with a large bed and some chairs if they are allowed on furniture. If they are used to sleeping in a crate, that can be accommodated too as there is plenty of room. While I am there, they'll have a large house and fenced backyard to play during the day.

I find having the spare room for them is helpful since a new place can be stressful and it can be their sanctuary if they wish or they can join the pack, it is really up to them. I find most guest dogs like to stay in the room for the first day or two and then eventually want to come out and be part of the group. I have a baby gate that I use so that I can keep the room open for them but it is still their space and my resident dogs cannot go in there which works out nicely. This is especially true for dogs that have come from shelters and may find kennels to be too stressful.

I require that all guest dogs be up to date on vaccinations and meet and greets are always strongly encouraged. I want to make sure you feel comfortable with where they will be staying and most importantly, I want to make sure they are going to feel comfortable. If you have a pet that needs medicine or special treatment, I can accommodate that as well as I have had fair share of dealing with various medications and taking care of dogs that require a little special attention.

I can assure you that your baby will get much love and attention (and might get spoiled just a bit). I look forward to hearing from you!

Joe was a perfect match for Bethany the Dog. He was attentive, responsive to my questions, and has a genuine love for what he does. I was able to travel with absolute confidence that my baby was happy, healthy, and having fun!
Joe took great care of our dog. He made sure she was comfortable around the other dogs and sent us plenty of updates. He was also very accommodating with drop-off and pick-up times.
Joe took great care of my pups for two weeks! He sent lots of pictures and updates, and helped them deal with thunderstorms. We'll definitely use him again!
My pups had a great time with Joe once again!
My pups had a great time with Joe- he took great care of them and sent me daily updates.
This was Zoey's second vacation with Joe. She was excited when we got to his front door. She LOVES Joe and so do we. I cannot think of anyone better to watch her. She is very spoiled at his house with her own bedroom. We feel very comfortable leaving her there. Thanks Joe!!
Joe is great with our dogs. He spoils them rotten. I really liked the way he handled our timid one. He let her come and sniff before even reaching a hand out to her and this really helped her adjust. He really made or dogs part of his family for the short time they were with him and it gave us peace of mind. He sent pictures and gave us updates as well as apply medication to one of our pets which was really helpful. Overall, Joe is definitely our favorite choice when it comes to our little loved ones and we would definitely recommend him for yours too!
Joe took great care of Zoey. She had her own room and space. She is not a social dog and he took the time to make her comfortable around his dogs. It was sooooo much better than putting her in a kennel environment.
We couldn't be happier with the care that Joe gave to our pups while we traveled for 10 days to Italy. He gave us regular updates on how they were adjusting to his home and dogs, and they quickly became used to the changes. He exercised them regularly and gave them as much love as we would have and we felt very comfortable leaving our 'kids' in his care. They even had their own bedroom (no cages here!). We highly recommend Joe to anyone needing a special home away from home for their pets.
I love Joe and so do my dogs, they always come home very happy!
Joe is absolutely wonderful, he has a wonderful home and a kind heart and is full of patience and love fr dogs!
My dogs are literally my babies and I didn't worry about them one bit. Joe offers a wonderful home for them and you just know that he loves dogs and will care for yours just as well if not better than you!
