I was looking for a dog sitter for my shepherd and saw Josef's post on craigslist.

The warmth with which he greeted my dog when he walked into my house told me he was a true dog lover. He stayed with my dog several times before she passed away. He ...

Dog lover with much availability

I cherish every dog I meet and have had dogs in my family my entire life. Walking, playing with, and hanging out with animals (especially dogs) is one of my favorite things to do. I am good at reading dogs and am usually able to establish trust with even skiddish dogs with sad shelter backgrounds. I am an active young person who is dedicated to giving dogs the attention and fun-time they deserve. When I ...

What Josef would like to know about your dog

When Josef watches your pet

I take dogs on walks (or runs!) on quiet neighborhood sidewalks or otherwise in natural areas, if they are accessible. I like to play fetch and gentle tug of war (if the dog doesn't have tooth decay and the toy can take it). The most enjoyable activity I find, however, is going on long walks, runs, or hikes with active dogs. If a dog is too old or small for that type of exercise, I will take her or him for a short neighborhood loop and then likely spend the rest of our time giving belly rubs.
