Joanna sat my two 11.5 pound poodle mixes so that I could attend to a family emergency out of state. I had never been away from the girls before with the exception of the three-and half hours maximum I would be gone for errands, appointments, etc. (they have separation anxiety) so I was very nervous about leaving them with a sitter. Also, they both take daily medications, one takes eight medications twice a day ...

Lisa, your girls are just the sweetest! And I pray that for that little heart of little miss Baileys! I ...

She was very accommodating and responsive to my needs. She is set up very dog friendly. She has a great yard for them to go outside. I had never used her before and felt very comfortable leaving Bo with her. He seemed comfortable there and seemed happy after staying there. I would recommend her.

Thanks Jill, Bo is such a soft little fluffy teddy bear and a good little gentleman. He is welcome back ...

Joanna is fantastic. My dog usually has separation anxiety but not when at Joanna’s house, he goes inside and doesn’t look back. Ace comes home happy and healthy. I couldn’t ask for more.

Ace is always such a gentleman to my furry house guest friends and humans. Love having him Stephanie.

The DogMother

I am retired and have the time to devote my full attention to your furry 4 legged family member(s). I have been loving what I thought would be a temporary part-time retirement job to a full time love for almost 6 years now. When you have to leave them they deserve a vacation too in a warm, relaxing home environment. They are treated just as if they were my own getting lots of playtime ...

What Joanna would like to know about your dog

My goal is to keep your pup happy and safe so I would like to be informed of any habits that I should be aware of such as: digging, excessive barking, anxiousness, chewing, escape artist etc. Most breeds are welcome! However, there are a few that I cannot accommodate. My home is not a kennel and the dogs roam the house and yard freely so please make me aware of any allergies or limitations. All must be spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations and on flea control. Protect your pet, it only takes 1 flea to infest the whole house and other guests. Meet and greet is necessary and a copy of vaccination record required prior to booking. Please complete all questions regarding your pet on the rover questionnaire and indicate your desired drop off and pick up time between 7:30am and 6pm on your reservation request.

When Joanna watches your pet

We Love to walk both for the dogs exercise and enjoyment and my own. (please bring a harness for safety purposes)
Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your pup is welcome to sleep where they are most comfortable. I typically have them in my room at night for safe keeping. Please bring their regular sleep time items to provide a sense of home and security right from the beginning. I can supply your pup with a clean doggie bed or crate if you prefer.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am with your dog approximately 99% of the time he/she is in my care. The other 1% would be to run errands.
