Joe is great! Our dog came from a broken home and sometimes she does not take to strangers well. Joe knew exactly how to approach her and take his time with her over a few visits until they became good friends. We will certainly be booking Joe in the future.

Our dogs had an amazing time. Joe kept us updated with pictures all day, and all three of them were happy and exhausted when I picked them up. He wasn't phased at all by three large breed puppies, and was very communicative and flexible about pickup and drop off times. Definitely going to be our go - to dog sitter.

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.
