Joseph has taken care of my two dogs many times. One of the dogs is very opinionated and definitely NOT stoic. If she wasn't happy at Joseph's house she would certainly let me know. Joseph is very organized, punctual, and responsible.

Our senior dog had strained a muscle just before the stay started, which made leaving him very difficult on all of us. Joseph was attentive and patient and took Renji to the vet for an extra check up. We're glad our pup was in good hands.

Joseph made the whole experience simple and easy. His response times to my questions about the status of my dog while I was out of town were always very quick. I appreciated his adaptability in coping with my dogs slightly 'bully' nature (pun intended). Wilbur seemed very well looked after. His week long stay went down without issue. I would recommend Joseph to any dog owner.

Full Time Sitter with Lots of Love

I am a Full-Time sitter living in San Francisco. I grew up in Virginia, and am a recent arrival to SF. Living out in the countryside, animals were a constant presence. My family owned many dogs, and have taken care of large and small breeds. I have a lot of time for your dog, s/he will have plenty of love and attention. There are several parks near me. If you are looking for someone ...

What Joseph would like to know about your dog

First, any health issues or behavioral problems that may cause them harm. After that I like to know a dogs disposition, how they behave, and what level of training they have. I don't have any breed preferences, I can work with a dog of any size.

When Joseph watches your pet

Where we go on walks
There are a few small parks near my home in the Excelsior, with lots of sidewalk space and plenty of open space if your dog prefers a large play space.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
In the house with me, either in the living room or bedroom.

Time I'll spend with your dog
This is my full time job, so pretty much all day, every day. I may have to leave them home while I run errands, but that wouldn't be for more than 2-3 hours every few days.
