JoEllen took great care of them while I was out of the country - they really enjoyed playing in her yard and snuggling together at night. All of the pictures she sent were great - plus they do get some medications that she was able to give them no problem, even though my male basenji is very fussy

JoEllen was great! We could tell she really cared about dogs from the beginning. We were a little worried because we always leave them with family, but they seemed at home right away. We got daily pictures and updates and were able to relax knowing they were in good hands. Will definitely be booking with her in the future!

Cannot say enough on how great of an experience our MinPin Rusty and we were with JoEllen. We all meshed immediately with JoEllen. She was so caring to all of Rusty's needs, so that totally made us comfortable with her taking care of him. JoEllen sent us progress reports and pictures during his stay that was dearly appreciated, we could see that he was enjoying his new friends. We highly recommend JoEllen.

Happy Tails Doggie Boarding

I am a dog lover!! I have one dog, a three-year-old Lhasa Apso mix that I rescued. I have fostered many types of breeds in the past. I can assure you that your dog will be in good hands with me so you can relax and enjoy your vacation. I love sending photos and updates as well while you are away.

What JoEllen would like to know about your dog

I do prefer smaller dogs but am not at all opposed to the larger breeds. I like to know as much as I can in advance before accepting a reservation. The more information I have beforehand, the better prepared I am for their stay.
