We boarded our two little dogs with Joan the weekend before Thanksgiving. One is 16 years old and I was nervous to leave him because I feel like he's a bit high maintenance. My fears were put to rest by Joan--her home is clean, accessible, easy to navigate for my dog with not the greatest eyesight, great, safe backyard. She sent pictures and updates which put my mind at ease. I can't imagine anyone doing ...

Koko stayed at Joan’s place during this past long weekend while we were out of town. Joan sent the pictures every day and Koko had a wonderful vacation too. Joan is such a caring person and the place is so cozy.

We are so glad we left our dog, Moose, with Joan! It was his first time being away from home, ever. He stayed with his best friend, Snoopy, and Joan was kind enough to send us updates and photos while we were away. I was relieved to know that he would be able to sleep near her feet (which is where he’d normally settles for the night at home) and no crate was needed ...

I've always been a dog lover and have been a caring mom of dogs all of my life. Last year, my 15 year old Lexi passed away after a wonderful life, and I really miss having a dog at home.

For several years, I have taken dogs into my home when my own dog sitter was booked up. She still calls and asks me to take her clients' dogs and I've had repeat doggy customers ...

What Joan would like to know about your dog

My only requests are that your dog is well behaved, clean, and potty trained. I will take up to 3 dogs from the same family at a time. Let's set up a Meet & Greet so that your dog can feel comfortable that this is the perfect vacation spot!

When Joan watches your pet

I will be happy to take your dog on walks around my beautiful neighborhood in Beaverton. Playing ball is something my dog couldn't do as well in her old age, so that would be fun again. Your dog is welcome to roam in my small but nice fenced in backyard. Willing to do anything that your dog enjoys!
