About Joanne

Hola :) I'm Joanne and I loveeeee dogs! I did have a full time job but was fed up of the 9-5 hours and the boring routine so instead I do dog buddy full time! Working with dogs every day? What's not to love! I am delighted with my decision and just love being with all pooches no matter the breed, size, age, temperament, all dogs are welcomed! As I'm always home so your doggies will be looked after with a lot of care and attention (: Also having worked with dogs for such a long time, I've managed to work with disabled dogs, dogs with health issues, puppy training and even aggressive dogs. I live at Western Harbour so is right beside the sea and Granton Beach so pooches will have plenty of fun! I am really flexible and can take last minute bookings as I'm doing this full time and I have a car for any emergencies.
Thanks for reading this and I can't wait to meet your bundle of fluff! :)

    Our mini poodle Macy had a great 3 day stay with Joanne. Joanne made her feel safe and right at home and gave far lots of care and attention. We really appreciated the regular text updates and photos she sent to us to reassure us that all was well. Thanks Joanne - and we have no hesitation in recommending you to others needing a caring and capable dog sitter.

    Joanne is fantastic, Kari was instantly drawn to her on our first 'meet' and she ran straight to Joanne again when we met for the day care session. As Kari hasn't stayed with anyone other than family, I was a little apprehensive as to how Kari would be. But I needn't have been, Joanne was excellent with Kari and it's been such a positive experience all around. Thanks Joanne! I'm delighted to have found Joanne, and looking forward to booking more day care and boarding. If you are looking for a lovely, friendly, understanding sitter who clearly loves dogs [and dogs love her!] Joanne is ideal!

    Joanne is an excellent dog sitter. She looked after Bella for 9 nights while we were in holiday and sent us lots of pictures and updates of how Bella was getting on. She’s a natural with dogs and is an excellent communicator and we recommend her to anyone thinking of booking her. It’s good to know there is such a reliable, friendly and experienced sitter there and we would definitely book Joanne again to look after Bella.
