This was our first time ever leaving our dog with anyone other than family and even though I was nervous in the beginning, as soon as we spoke with Joe he put us at ease. Not only is he friendly, but he is clearly an experienced dog lover. We were so happy with the care he gave our dog and would highly recommend him to everyone. He kept in touch and sent us photos and ...

Joe is the best - we use him every time we leave town. Our dog, Cosmo, loves it there! It's as if we are all getting a vacation. Highly recommended!

Home away from home !

Hello and thanks for taking the time to find out a little about me. I'm originally from Los Angeles, lived in Chicago for thirty years where I worked with the Illinois State Police, retiring in 2012 .I have also worked as a Vet Tech, which allows me to take great care of some special needs dogs. I have owned dogs since I was 5 years old, from German Shepherds to my last, a wonderful 11 ...

What Joe would like to know about your dog

Unfortunately, my condo association has breed restrictions that I must abide by. I cannot accept some breeds including, but not limited to: American Staffordshire Terriers, German Shepards, Rottweilers or Doberman Pinschers Please contact me for more information. Thanks !
House trained? Up to date on all vaccinations and flea and tick medication? Any separation anxiety or other behavioral issues?, Allergies, Any unique, special or other concerns?

DROP OFF and PICK UP TIME
7am-6pm is the drop off time period. Pick up time is 7am-10am. Don't panic! If you need a special time for pick-up or drop-off, let me know. I can work almost anything as long as it's previously arranged. There is a $30 day care charge for any pets picked up after 12 noon but before 5pm. If you need a day rate pick up schedule, just book your number of nights first, then under a separate reservation, book a doggy day care day. Anything after 5pm is considered another night in which case $35 is the charge. The reason behind these times/charges is that an open space for another dog-guest is impacted by your drop off and pick up times. There's only so much room at the doggie fun house! So, if there is something unique about your required stay times, just talk with me and we'll work something out. No stress !
