About Joseph

  • Verified Background Check

Resident physician, animal lover

I've always loved dogs, but with a hectic work schedule I don't have the time for one of my own. In the past I've walked dogs for other residents in my building and occasionally house sat for friends and family with dogs. Breeds I've taken care of previously include yorkshire terrier, beagle, bulldog, golden retriever, pomeranian, and german shepherd. Back in medical school I also helped to train a husky that had recently been adopted ...

What Joseph would like to know about your dog

Things I would hope to learn before sitting for a new dog:
- Bathroom trained?
- Friendly with other dogs?
- Friendly with other people?
- Tendency to chew furniture/shoes?
- Special needs?

When Joseph watches your pet

I live in Lakeview and the neighborhood is very walkable. My building is gated and very safe for animals. Many of my neighbors have dogs and it's an easy community to join. I'm also not far from the lakefront, in case there's a dog in need of a longer walk or some open green space.

I can only watch dogs on days when I'm off work because I'd like to be around as much as possible to meet their needs. When watching a dog, I would plan to be in or around my apartment the majority of the day. If I'm going for a walk or run and the dog is up for it, I would plan to bring them along.
