Joel took great care of our dog and house for a week while we where on vacation. He is always very responsive to messages and followed our detailed instructions to the letter. And I think it’s fair to say we are picky...when our plans changed at the last minute Joel was very flexible and willing to stay an extra day. We will definitely contact Joel next time we need someone to watch the ...

Highly recommend Joel. Our dogs acclimated to him immediately including our picky sometimes grumpy old chiwuawua Ren. Joel expressed deep knowledge of dog handling and followed instructions perfectly. Will definitely hire him again.

About Joel

years of experience
  • Verified Background Check

Every breed deserves love

I've never met a dog I didn't love, and I've never met a dog that didn't love me. You can rest easy knowing that your dog will be well-cared for, and well-loved. I'm a local musician and songwriter with a very flexible schedule and a huge place in my heart for dogs. I'm very communicative, and will be happy to give you updates on your dog.

I've been taking care of dogs my entire life ...

What Joel would like to know about your dog

I would love to know any places you usually like to take your dog, their favorite toys, their favorite activities, and any commands you're training them on and how I can help to keep that consistent while you're gone! I have no breed preferences, although I do have a soft spot for pit bulls. :)

When Joel watches your pet

From a romp around the block to a full day at the park, I'm happy to give your dog as much or as little exercise as they need. We can spend hours snuggled on the couch, or outside playing fetch and sniffing everything in sight. Whatever your dog's personality, I will do anything and everything I can to make sure they're as happy as can be, or at least while their master's away.
