“Four legged friends are the best!”

*Woof!* I'm Joshua and I just said 'Hello!' in dog speak. I've been told I'm a good human and often get wet nose kisses in recognition of a job well done. Dogs are simply amazing and I absolutely love them. I appreciate dogs of all sizes and breeds, but big playful pups are my favorite. When caring for your dog, you can rest assured that your fur baby is in the good hands of a trustworthy human who is as loving to your four-legged friend as you are. Your pup is always priority #1!

I have grown up around all kinds of animals especially dogs both big and small. I currently love and care for a sweet little chihuahua/doxen mix and hope to adopt a larger dog as well. I am very interested in using canine behavior and body language to understand how they feel so I provide the best care possible.

I have had dogs my entire life; I currently have 2 chocolate labs. I have been dog sitting for about 15 years around my neighborhood. My experience includes being a member of Kids for Paws, an organization that raised money to donate to animal shelters, military dogs, and guide dogs. I was also a volunteer at the SPCA while I was in college. I am great with everyone from high-energy puppies that love to play to older dogs who just love to snuggle. I can’t wait to meet your furry friends!

“I will treat your dog as one of my family!”

I grew up with dogs on our horse farm & pet sat through college. I was a vet tech, dog groomer & kennel manager for 8 years at a vet before starting my own business so I can do various medical treatments, meds, etc. I have 2 large dogs- Griffey a humane society pup and Monty a golden retriever. If you are going away for a weekend or vacation, my daughter, son and I all do house/pet sitting in your home. Keep your dog in the comfort of it's own home/schedule & not the stresses of a kennel.
