  • Joan Website Photo

    Joan is also a Pet Sitter Supervisor and has been petsitting on the South Shore for nine years, and taking care of friends’ pets for even longer. She enjoys caring for pets who prefer in-home care to a kennel or daycare. Joan’s work style is personal, thorough, and conscientious. She seeks to connect with each pet’s character, learn their preferences, and focus on their needs. Pets lift Joan’s spirits. They tell you right away if you’re doing the right thing and reward good performance with a nuzzle or a lick when they see you come through the door. Pets crave routine and respond well to “sameness.” Joan strives to eliminate potential stressors before they manifest. She learns what motivates your pets most and uses that to put them at ease and build trust.

    Brittany works full time from home in Weymouth, MA for Amazon Corporate. Working from home gives her less time to interact with humans and more time to interact with dogs – just the way she likes it! Brittany often spends her weekends volunteering with PAWS New England as a transport volunteer. Early Saturday mornings are spent picking up rescued pups from a truck transport  from the south and driving them to their foster family or, for some lucky dogs directly to their new adopted family. Brittany has also volunteered with the Animal Rescue League of Boston.  At home, she has a big, chubby, 11 year old Ridgeback named Nadra. They spend most of their time together eating, cuddling, and taking selfies… as evidenced by the above photo. You can expect the same level of love and care (and selfies) from Brittany with every pet she works with.

  • Rebecca

    Although Rebecca is the youngest member of the team, she’s had more experience working with dogs than most people her age. Her passion started quite early when her parents realized she could name dog breeds before learning the alphabet. She started training and competing in dog shows in 7th grade when she became a member of the Cave Canem 4-H dog club. Instead of playing sports after school, she was training her Labrador Retriever, Lucky, for weekend dog shows. Since graduating from Hull High School in 2015 she has been working towards getting certified as a professional dog trainer, as well as competing in AKC events. With Rebecca’s extensive knowledge of canines, you can trust that your dog will be in the right hands while you’re away!

  • Just wanted to thank you for taking such good care of Riley and Annie for my sister in law. She called me to say how wonderful you were and how happy she was to have found you! For me, you have saved me from the responsibility of being a great sister in law and offering to take care of the dogs when they go away.
