Excellent experience. Came on very short notice, walked my dog for over a mile, and even tidyed up after my dog nocked over a plant in my apt. Would recommend.

Joan was a fantastic puppy visitor. We are your typical nervous new parents with a very little 11 week old puppy and she gave us a very detailed explanation of how the visit went and our puppy's mood. She also sent a few pictures of them playing!

Our pup, Lincoln, adores Joan. She is kind and reliable. She sends great updates and messages during her stay. Upon our return, our pup is always happier than we left him. Thank you for your excellent care!

Caring, attentive dog lover!

I've had dogs as close family members for 35 years -- for several years it was a crew of three -- and absolutely adore caring and being with them. You can count on love, cuddles, playtime, and great walks. I'm experienced with all ages, from puppies to senior dogs with health considerations. Dogs somehow relate to me -- I'm that person your dog inexplicably runs to for a sniff/greeting! I relate to all breeds and personality styles ...

What Joan K. would like to know about your dog

I love all sizes and breeds, but need to have a good understanding of health issues so I may give your dog the best care; also how well they interact with other dogs and their energy level, so I may know if a dog park or a solitary walk is most appropriate.

When Joan K. watches your pet

You can count on lots of playtime & cuddles, long walks, paced to your dog's needs and energy level, and if your pup is a social animal, dog park romps will be in store. I'm highly attentive to dog body language, as well as situations that can spook them (crowded sidewalks, noise), and will never put your baby in an uncomfortable or unsafe situation. I'm super protective about keeping dogs safe.
