We left for 11 days over spring break and had Jo come three times a day to take care or our two older dogs and our two pet rats.  I had piece of mind knowing they would be taken care of and loved the pictures and updates sent every evening to my phone!  She took great care of my older dogs as they need to take medication every day.  I would definitely recommend her to others and will for sure use her in the future!

Jo took care of our two pups for a week over spring break and we could not be more pleased! She was so attentive to Bella and Dusty's needs and they are used to lots of human contact and don't do well in kennels at all.  The dogs were so well loved and cared for,  we will certainly utilize her wonderful care again! 


Thank you so much,  Jo for the piece of mind!

Jo has been caring for my pets (two dogs and a cat) since Fall 2015. She's professional, dependable, and great about sending photos and updates when I'm traveling.  I really appreciate that she's experienced in caring for older pets (my older dog and my cat are 15 years old).  All-around great service!  Highly recommended.

Thank you again for your pet sitting service.  It was great to know that the dogs had a reliable person to let them out midday while we were working.  The daily pictures was a great idea that I had never experienced with other pet sitters used in the past.  It was great to get the pictures each day and see that dogs were happy and cared for.  It is great to know that we have found somebody that we can trust to help us out with the dogs when we may need it next.  Thanks again!!!

First time with Jo. She was very nice to work with and provided very good care for my cat while we were out of town. Each day she sent a nice photo of my cat with a brief summary of the day's experience. Highly recommend.

I never used a service like Jo's but I was going on vacation and did not want to board my kitten. I felt that the best alternative was to have someone come into my home to check on him. But having a stranger come into your home can be nerve-wracking. When I first met Jo I was very impressed with how professional she was. She came prepared and answered all the questions that I had and answered questions I didn't even know I had. She meet Tahoe and I showed her around the house. I felt very comfortable with her and after she left I knew I made the right decision. I left for vacation happy to have Jo not only checking on Tahoe and giving him love but also looking after the house. Every day she visited she sent me updates and photos of my Tahoe. It was so nice to see him and know he was happy. This was the first time I have left him for a week and thanks to Jo I knew he was in good hands. We came home to a happy kitten. Jo did everything she said she would while we were away. I will definitely hire her again!

I've known Jo Deibel for almost a decade ! She helped me in a time of need with an animal, when no one else would. My neighbors were too poor to care for their horses and relinquished their responsibilities onto me. I contact Jo from a friend and she right away was able to spring to action and lend a helping informative knowledgeable hand. Jo's ability to care for animals is amazing, she has a way of understanding their wants and needs like no other ! If there is a question I have about any type of animal from horses to fish and especially dogs and cats the first person I call is Mrs. Deibel!     

I've been in the dog industry for 11 + years and own a large boarding kennel in northern Baltimore county Maryland, I know what it means to care for animals, I know what it takes and I know what to look for when hiring employees, if Jo lived close enough to commute to work I would hire her in a heartbeat. So you could say YES ! I would most definitely without a doubt recommend Jo to care for not only my animals, but anyone in need of a responsible, charismatic and knowledgeable animal care taker ! She has an amazing heart full of love for animals big or small.

Jo cared for our dog Chase for over 6 months. She provided 3 in-home visits a day so I never had to worry if he was in need of food and water. She took time to walk and even played around with him during her visits. I would highly recommend her services.

Jo cared for our Corgi, Maddie, for well over a year. She's always prompt and thoughtful (she even brought her special treats, which was very nice). She makes 3 visits a day and I can always rest assured that Mad's is in good hands while we're away.
