It was my first time leaving our golden retriever, Nala, with Joanne and it was a success! Joanne was always in contact with me sending me updates of Nala’s day. I did not feel anxious or uneasy being away knowing Nala was being cared for so nicely.

Thanks for the review Marissa. Nala is a sweetie. I look forward to our upcoming overnight stay.

Home Full Time-No Pets of Own

I cater to owners who prefer their pets have a quiet home throughout their visit. A professional pet sitter for over fifteen years, I treat every animal as if it were my own giving as much attention and love as I can, which is a lot since I have a big dent in my heart for animals. I started pet sitting by fostering dogs and cats. Eventually when they were adopted, their new owners needed ...

What Joanne would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if a pet likes other dogs and people (if not that's fine, I'll avoid them on our walks) prefers sleeping in my bed, what special commands the owner may use, what favorite spots the dog likes to be petted, if any particular thing frightens it like a certain sound or object, the dogs eating, sleeping and walking schedule, if it has blatter issues, what is the limit for treats per day, does the dog have separation anxiety, is the dog front-lined, if afraid of thunder what’s the preferred comforting technique to use.

When Joanne watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks:
Tallman paths and Piermont Pier.
My backyard is a great place for dogs to lull around and be outdoors. It has nice sun during the day. My guests are never left unsupervised here.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement;
I do what you do in your home.

Time I'll spend with your dog;
I’m an artist working from home and my husband recently retired. We will be a big part of your dog's life when they stay with me.
