Joe is great! Our dog just stayed with him for two weeks and he took the best care of her. Two weeks is the longest we’ve ever left her and I was pretty worried, but Joe was great about answering all our questions and sending us updates the whole time we were gone. I will not hesitate to book with Joe again!

Beau had a great time with Joe. He is a 2 yo 100 lb mastiff-Dane puppy who likes to romp around. Joe was happy to accommodate him and provide him with activities and supervised play with the other pups he had visiting. Joe is not intimidated by big puppies in the least. Beau returned home happy and tired! I feel comfortable having Beau stay for an extended stay with Joe and his family.

Lots of Love and Attention

I'm located just off the parkway near Churchill -- easy access from City neighborhoods and the East suburbs.

My name is Joe, I'm 39, and I'm dedicated full time to dog care. I was a research assistant at CMU for 14 years, but our project ended in 2014. I started doing independent dog care as a part time job and it's grown into a full time business.

That means I get to be at home a ...

What Joe would like to know about your dog

I have experience with many breeds. All I would need to know is what games and activities your dog loves so that we can spend our time enjoying them together. Of course I'd want to know the dog's regular daily routine and any special circumstances to consider.

When Joe watches your pet

We have a great yard for playing and usually 2 or 3 doggie clients around to play with. Younger dogs can chase each other up and down the hill and older dogs can lounge in the sun. We start every day with extensive play time in he yard. This helps get out some energy and lets the dogs bond with each other.

If your dog likes to snuggle, they will be welcome to sleep in the bed with me. If they prefer to use their own bed or crate, we can put it in my bedroom, the living room, kitchen, or wherever your dog prefers to sleep. If necessary, I can provide a dog bed or blanket for your pet to use during their stay!

I can spend several hours throughout the day giving your dog attention. In addition to keeping your dog company throughout the day I will spend an hour or more of focused play time as well as honor any specific walking or playing requests that you might have. I would be happy to teach your dog to jump on command, which I've done with friends' dogs.
