Joe was so attentive and wonderful with Arya while we were at a wedding for the weekend. He was super flexible with timings, provided awesome updates, and she seemed to have so much fun on her many walks/park trips with him. Thanks so much!

Joe is great. Super accommodating, responsive and easy to communicate with. We were a bit nervous because our dog can be a bit challenging at times but Joe listened to our requests and everything went smooth. We did a quick meet and greet before the stay and during the stay Joe kept us updated with tons of pictures. We will definitely ask for his help again in the future. Thanks Joe.

Joe took incredible care of our dog Domino while we were on vacation. This was our first time using a dog sitter and we were nervous about it but Joe made it a wonderful experience for us and our dog. He sent us daily updates with pictures. It’s clear he’s experienced with dogs and genuinely loves them. Domino had such a good time with Joe!

Lover of all dogs! Allergic to cats

I had two dogs growing up from the age of 5-18 until I went off to college. Texas Tea (Because he was a Kerry Blue Terrier that never changed color and stayed black as oil) and Dodger named after Billy Joel's animated character in Oliver because that's what he looked like. While we bought Tex from a breeder, Dodger was a stray dog that was scratching and howling at our garage who we just took ...

What Joe would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences as I've worked with pugs to pits to labs to great danes.
Only thing I'd like to know is how comfortable they are with strangers. Do they nip? What's the best way to approach them when you're new to them? Do they only need a hand sniff or a treat to gain trust? Are they good with other dogs? Are they good on walks when people pass by?
More just for safety these are the issues I need to know ahead of time.

When Joe watches your pet

I love playing fetch at the dog park and watching a pup run around playing with other dogs. I normally give anywhere from a 10-20 minute walk depending on the dog's needs. If they don't have booties in the winter I make sure to avoid salt on the street as much as possible.
When at the house I love playing a game of tug-of-war with a rope if the dog is into that. And a cuddle on the couch when they're all tuckered out is always good.
