I found Joanne with Something Bark About through friends and boy was I lucky! She is AWESOME! My fur babies get the best care while we are away. Joanne went above and beyond for me this Christmas when there was a “mishap” with my dog and my cats litterbox. I came home to find no mess and a freshly shampooed Tank. We were so happy…Tank not so much for having to get a bath! I would recommend Something to Bark About to anyone who wants to know their fur babies are getting the best care and love while you’re away.
Joanne has been our sitter for 8 years and we couldn’t be happier. You won’t find another pet sitter who cares more for pets. Our mini Schnauzer loves Joanne so much that I think she’d leave us to live with Joanne if we let her! We never have to worry when we travel because we know our baby is being well cared for. Joanne is a professional sitter, not a neighborhood kid from down the street. You can trust she will be there when she says she will and that she will follow all of your instructions. She will also make sure your house is safely taken care of while you are gone.
Meet Your Pet Sitter
Thanks for taking time to visit my “woofsite”! My name is Joanne Byrne and I am the owner of Something to Bark About.
My original career was as a Social Worker in the criminal justice system. During the years I worked in that profession, I spent many an hour dreaming about how I’d love to work with animals. After 22 years, I finally decided there was no reason I couldn’t make a bit of my daydreaming a reality. I took on some part time work as pet sitter for an existing company. Once I got a taste of my dream job, there was no stopping me! It wasn’t long before I said goodbye to Social Work and started Something to Bark About Professional Pet Sitting. That was in 2010 and here I am, still living my dream.
