DO. NOT. HIRE. THIS. SITTER. EVER. I hired Joshua to watch my Havanese dogs for 2 weeks while I was out of state. 5 days into his stay he quit. By text. No phone calls, nothing. He came acrorss great during his interview with me and my dogs. That is where the good part of this ended.

He was supposed to come by my house the afternoon before I left. He did not show up ...

Joshua sent me lots of updates and pictures.
He was very good with my dog and totally kept him brushed and happy. Which some people don't do because they real it's not part of their job. Not Joshua!
He took him on lots of walks and fun new adventures.
Bear had so much fun with his dog and even got along with his cats!! Which Bear had never been around before so that let me ...

Your Dog, My Love, Our Long Walk

Hi there, I’m Josh and I can’t wait to meet you and your dog. You and your pet will love me because I’m dedicated--I give my all to both my work and my hobbies.

The genuine and unconditional love dogs have for both their owners and life has provided me with the love I have for dogs. They way they greet each day with a smile and positive attitude, taking one step ...

What Joshua would like to know about your dog

One thing that dogs and I have in common, the quickest way to our hearts is through our stomachs -- and maybe a back scratch here and there! Meet and greets will take place at the park near my house. This is a good neutral spot where I can become acquainted with the pup and we can spend some time getting to know each other.
It’s important for me to get to know some things about your pup. Some of these specifics will include feeding habits and schedules, and medication or vitamins, and toys and treats. By knowing your pup’s needs, I can give all of the attention and time that it takes to make sure she is as comfortable and happy as possible.
It won’t be difficult to make a connection with your pupper. Aside from the treats that I always have in my pocket, I have a way of calmly connecting with dogs and making them feel as close and comfortable as possible. I try to understand from their point of view how scary it can be to leave your comfort zone and stay in a place that may be unfamiliar. I moved a lot as a young boy, so I know this feeling all too well. All dogs need love. I do not discriminate by breed size, color or age. If your dog is friendly and needs a human to watch for a few days, I am the guy to do it.
