Joan was awesome! I don't know how she did it. She took great care of our boys while she was coping with a very personal loss. She is a sweetheart who is more than qualified to take care of your dog. We will use no other dog boarder!

Joan is awesome! Her home is very pet friendly and you can tell she has a genuine love for animals. During our stay Joan unfortunately had a personal emergency but found an excellent Rover sitter to take her place for a couple days. Care of my dog and other pets staying at her home was never compromised! She truly makes it a priority to make sure everyone is well taken care of. I will definitely ...

You can't find anyone better than Joan to care for your dog! She and her home are devoted to love and attention. I received daily updates and pictures and felt Snickers didn't miss me at all! He made friends and played and had a great vacation while I was on my business trip. I'm sure he can't wait to go back.

Thank you so very much!!

I was a Veterinary Technician at the busiest Animal Clinic in Port Charlotte for over 15 years. If you truly would like a Pet Professional to watch your furry family members, I am that person!
I keep a routine, and no one is ever alone. I am here 99% of the time. If I leave the home it is to just go and check up on a cat or walk a dog.
I do not ...

What Joan would like to know about your dog

*Please, if your dog is in any way Aggressive Towards Cats, I CANNOT watch your dog. It is very important to us that everyone is safe at our home. Thank You!!* And of course, they must like other dogs.
I have a senior, blind dog that I am fostering, two elder dogs and two younger dogs...so really anything goes here. The Seniors are fosters that were pulled from a horrible shelter in Miami. I do lots of rescue and adoption work.

About Joan's Home

When Joan watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
well we play out in the back yard and there are nice sidewalks in my neighborhood.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Any where he/she likes!!! I allow dogs/cats to sleep in bed if it makes them feel better. I also place comforters and doggie beds around the home so that where ever they would like to plop down, there is something soft to lie on.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Well most of the day, since I am always home with them.
