Joe was great with the dog and sent daily pictures and updates. We will definitely use his services the next time we need someone to watch our dog. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a dog sitter, short term or long term.

Very clear and communicative. Sent cute photos of my dog while I was out so I know that she had a wonderful time!

I Want to Extend My Dog Family!

Hi there! I'm Joseph and I can't wait to meet you and your dog! After 21 years in sales and retail management, I've been lucky enough to reevaluate my career. I thought about what makes me passionate and happy and the first thing that came to my mind was caring for dogs! I'm excited to become your go-to sitter and walker.

I'm studying to become a certified dog trainer and I'm a seasoned dog sitter ...

When Joseph watches your pet

OUTDOORS
While I have a small, fenced in backyard, I never use it! I live in Locust Point, which is great because I have three parks close by to walk around. Ft McHenry is about a half a mile away and I try to go there daily as long as the park is open. I'm right across the street from Latrobe Park, which includes a fenced in dog park. I, personally, don't visit the dog park a lot only because I enjoy walking my boys so much. Riverside park is about a mile away and has a great loop for walking. We enjoy searching for squirrels, checking peamail and meeting other people and dogs on our treks.
INDOORS
I have plenty of toys to play with: Ropes, tennis balls, lacrosse balls, kong balls, rubber bones, rubber frisbees, antlers (my boys LOVE these!) and too many chew toys to name. Your pet will be allowed to jump on the couch, if you're cool with it of course (I don't want to start anything...) to cuddle with me and the boys. If that doesn't fancy them I have four large dog beds to relax on.
