Joy is disciplined, loving and determined to give the best care to any animal she is responsible for. She and her husband own a dog who is cared well for and given ample park play-time! She is reliable and will follow any directions given to care for a client.

When Joy watches your pet

There is a trail near my complex for on-leash exploring and walking. Practicing commands and tricks for treats, and of course cuddling is a must.
