Jo is great! My 12 year old cancer survivor with special needs and my 2 year old pup were well taken care of and loved while we were gone. Jo really knows dogs and managed their different personalities great. Wonderful!

Jo and her family took exceptional care of our little dog while we were on an extended trip to Alaska. We received regular feedback and pictures. Would highly recommend her as a sitter. She is one sweet, competent "doggie mama". Thanks, Rover!

Our lab Josie had an extended stay, and Jo and her family are amazing! We really appreciate the attentive and loving care she provides, truly in tune to issues and helping attend to her needs. Josie loves coming to your house and can’t wait for us to leave town again! We can’t thank you enough.

A Safe Place For Fido.

Hi there! I'm a stay at home mom with time to spare so I figured I'd use that time doing what I love: watching dogs. I have 2 of my own, Bugga and Trixie. both are very friendly! Ill do my best to make your pet feel safe, coomfortable and loved while you are away. I know the site says I dont send many photos and thats because I send them via Text or Email ...

What Jo would like to know about your dog

Before I watch a dog I like to know eating habits and potty habits. How they are around new dogs and people. Can they become destructive when upset? Are they UTD on shots. Are they known to be a runner if they get loose. What are their favorite things to do. Favorite toy/ blanket. Where do they like to be pet? Are they high energy or layed back.

When Jo watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We live in a nice quiet neighborhood. Great for long walks. There is a park down the street as well. We also can go to the local dog park if allowed.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
That is entirely up to you. We let our dogs roam the house. If you want them kenneled I'll set them up in the living room or kitchen, you can either bring your own or use the ones I have here, depending on your dog's size. If they are used to sleeping on the bed they are welcome... nice huge king size bed to share.

Time I'll spend with your dog
All day. I'm a stay at home mom. Plenty of walks and potty breaks.
