This review is long over due, but Josh is one of the best dog sitters we have ever come across! It's like our dog is going to camp every time we drop him off, he has such a wonderful time and comes home exhausted. We moved out of the area a year ago and still make sure to bring him to Josh's when we go on long trips. I couldn't recommend him more!

I can’t speak highly enough of Joshua. He is clearly a dog lover himself, and very knowledgabe about dog behavior. I’m always hesitant to leave my pitbull with strangers because he’s a strong dog, albeit a sweet dog, and not everyone knows how to deal with bully breeds.

We were so happy that we found Josh! We felt so comfortable leaving our dog with him and had a worry free vacation! When we picked up our pup we thought she would be over joyed to see us .... to our surprise she wasn’t and ignored us as she stared out the window hoping she was going back to Josh’s house! She eventually came around, but we expect the same result as we ...

What Joshua would like to know about your dog

I would only ask to see if we could introduce the dog/s to mine to set up a strong bond before hand. I also prefer 48 hours notice prior to boarding with me for the first time.

When Joshua watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
In and around my neighborhood. We live in downtown Rahway, in a building that we own. We're not far from Rahway river park and there is a great mile and a half long path we like to take outback walks on. We also walk around the suburban neighborhood we live in. We tend to take three 20-30 minute walks a day.
