*currently booked/unavailable boarding dates: November 24 – November 27, December 8 – December 12, December 24 – January 1

Hello there! I’ve created this website to inform you about my services for dogs. I have worked full time since April 2013 at Pour La Pooch dog daycare. This translates to over 13,000 hours of experience caring for hundreds of different dogs, with an average daycare pack size of about 30 dogs at a time.  Additionally I was raised from birth with dogs and cats, and have raised my own dogs and cats from kittens and puppies to happy and healthy seniors.  I love animals and think I am better than most at understanding them and caring for them.

TESTIMONIALS

Levi on a jog in Griffith Park

I am very particular when it comes to leaving my dog with anyone. I have known Justin for several years through daycare and I absolutely trust him with my dog Levi. And Levi adores him. He takes the best care, including morning runs/hikes and does not ever leave him alone. He also stays in close touch while Levi is with him, sending the cutest photos. I highly recommend Justin to take the best care of your dog!! – Rachel R.

Lucien playing

I trust Justin in taking care of my dog when I travel…that trust allows me to be free of worry about his care and says a lot about Justin. I know that when my dog, Lucian, is with him, he’s always having a great time and protected.  Lucian goes hiking, running and is always playing – great for a frisky 5-yr old. But even for an older dog, Justin understands the appropriate care and exercise. I’m really relieved to have found someone so solid to take my dog when I am away. Always available as a reference if you need to ask questions. –Michele D.


Mr. Pants!

Justin is great with our anxious rescue dog.  Mr. Pants is nervous and doesn’t trust easily, but their bromance is heartwarming.-Megan P.


Calvin

I am so happy that I found Justin. When I need to go away I know my dog Calvin will be in the best of hands. I would highly recommend Justin to anyone who wants the best for their pup. He goes above and beyond working around my crazy schedule and he does pickup and drop off too. – Lise B.


Cleo getting that Hollywood sign selfie….

Justin is simply the best! My dog LOVES Justin, and we all know they are the best judges of character. Justin not only makes sure they get plenty of exercise, companionship, and other dogs to play with, he sends updates of photos and videos. I don’t make any travel plans without checking to see if Justin can watch our pup. Vincent L.


Baby getting some park time…

Justin has been our go-to sitter for Baby. Baby always comes back super happy after staying with Justin. We met Justin through daycare and he’s amazing with dogs. Highly recommend Justin for all your dog sitting needs. Your dog will be in great hands. Hector R.


Badgit exploring the park.

One day on Beverly Blvd my dog saw Justin drive by and wave.  Now, if my dog sees a similar car drive by that same spot on Beverly, he claws his way down the sidewalk and demands that we see if Justin is in the car.  He loooves Justin.   I like the fact that Justin sent some pics of my dog when I was gone for a week, and Justin has given me some canine nutrition tips that have helped me adjust my dog’s daily diet to address some stomach issues.

Justin is the only person in the world that I trust my dogs with. I have two, not so well behaved dogs… But Justin’s able to keep them in order and they get super excited to see him! His service is there a mini vacations!!! Jarrett F.


Sparkie in Griffith Park.

We are so happy with Justin! Our dog, Sparkie, adores him and stays with him when we travel. Sparkie is super active and loving and Justin gives him the perfect amount of activities, like hiking, and then lets Sparkie snuggle with him in bed. It is so comforting to know that Sparkie is in good hands, having an amazing time, and knowing that Justin treats him as though he’s his own dog.  We also have a new stray rescue, Charlie,  who is very timid and unsocialized, and Justin is a dog whisperer with him. Justin is able to meet a dog where they are and give them the personalized treatment appropriate for their personality and disposition. Charlie, who is afraid of pretty much everyone, warmed up to Justin immediately. Justin just has a way with dogs and we are so thankful. Natalie L.


Henry!

Justin has been watching my dog, Henry, for years. I trust him more with my dog than my sister. He takes such good care of Henry and Henry adores him. We are both so lucky we found him. Amanda M.

cutie pie Ella

I couldn’t recommend Justin more…. My dog Was so well cared for… the best part was seeing her sleeping on Justin’s bed! He is a true dog lover and If I didn’t have a close friend watching my dog when I go away I would always be using Justin! Your dog will be in great hands! Atara R.


Lucy always happy!

I am very happy with Justin’s Dog Services!  Justin is very reliable and my dog Lucy loves staying with him!  He is so kind and caring with Lucy.  Justin sends me photo or video during her stays which I really appreciate!  Thank you so much!  Lucy and I are so lucky to have you available to take care of her.

Asia hiking in Griffith Park.

I’ve used Justin’s day/overnight services for a few years now. My puppy Asia loves overnights with Justin it’s like a vacation to her. During the day they for many walks, hikes, up & down mountain trails. Lots of Pictures during the day & night included! After hours and hours of playing Asia is pooped…but most important to me is Asia is in good hands. I trust Justin’s animal knowledge so I don’t worry. Jill S.

Catching some snoozes with Wolf.

Can’t say enough great things about Justin! He has been taking care of our dog since she was a puppy and she absolutely adores him. He is super communicative and treats our pup as one of his own. Best dog sitter in all of LA!

Park time with Rosie and friends.

I wish I could give Justin more than 5 stars!!! My Rosie girl could not be more in love with Justin and I am so thankful to have found him via Pour La Pooch. It’s so easy to communicate with Justin and he is so available to help out. My incredibly attached dog couldn’t care less about me when Justin is there and I’m so appreciative! Examples: I was recovering from surgery and Rosie stayed with him for a few days, he was then able to to pick her up and drop her off from daycare. He was super accommodating and I felt so secure knowing Rosie was with someone who loves her just as much as I do! Also, Justin will take Rosie on super long runs and walks and she leaves enriched mentally and physically (as you can see in these pics). Thanks so much Justin! Ilana B.

Mick having fun!

As I’m sure you’ll see in all of the other reviews, Justin is fantastic.  It is clear to see that Justin has not only made a connection with all of the dogs he cares for, but has gone out of his way to make a connection with my dog.  It seems to be the peak of my dog’s day when he gets to hang out with Justin.   Justin has watched my dog over vacations, and came through in the absolute clutch on my wedding day, going so far above and beyond to help my wife out.  I trust Justin completely with my dog, and he is phenomenally communicative and responsive.  You can rest assured that if you’re leaving your dog with Justin, that dog is in great hands.

Sweet Pepper!

Justin is basically a dog whisperer. My dog is fearful, reactive, and generally doesn’t like most people. But she adores Justin. And with good reason. When I go out of town it’s like she gets a vacation, too. Lots of hikes and play time with other dogs and lots of love and attention. I trust Justin completely and always have peace of mind when I need care for my little terror. He’s the best. Louise R.

Rossi sunbathing….

Justin is the absolute best! He’s one of the only people I trust to watch my dog. I know when I leave town, that my dog is in good hands with him. He’s attentive to my pet’s needs, is very responsible and communicative. I can’t recommend him enough. Jaynee G.

Pixie girl!

Justin takes the best care of my dog Pix. He’s super communicative, very easy to get in touch with if you have any questions and regularly sends updates (and photos!) on how your dog is doing. She has separation anxiety but has truly bonded with Justin and feels totally comfortable with him. I never have to worry when we go out of town and always know that Pix is in good hands. He’ll also take your dog on a ton of walks in additon to relaxing with them at home. 10/10 would recommend!!!! Rebecca W.

Louie doing some yoga!

Justin is incredible with dogs.  He always looks after ours when we are away.  My only complaint is that he’s so good, that it’s possible our dog loves him more than he does us.  Highly recommend without any hesitation. Francois M.
