"Socialization needs to be an ongoing process".

Call Josephine Pet Sitting Services, LLC has over 20+ years of experience looking after clients' precious fur-kid family members in the comfort of their own home and ours. Since every pet has their own biography, unique persona, temperament, and history, we customize every dog's care!

We work with over 500 dogs per year -- from pure breed, American Kennel Club dogs who've gone through extensive obedience training -- to the most shy, recently adopted rescue dogs* who have been in foster care, animal shelter/rescue groups, or experienced trauma or abandonment during most of their lives.

After our initial consultation, we can assess the right care for our clients pets -- which ultimately means we mimic the clients way of caring for their dog so the clients pet experiences his or her normal, day-to-day routine while their mom or dad is away at work or on holiday.

*rescue/foster dogs must be with client for a minimum of six months 



Serving Atherton, Belmont, Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Portola Valley, Redwood City, San Carlos, & Woodside.*

* Effective April 1st 2013, our service area includes: Ralston in Belmont to Page Mill in Palo Alto; we no longer service east of 101 or above Portola Road in Woodside/Portola Valley.
