Joy has watched my dog, Cindy, probably half a dozen times and Cindy is always super excited to see her! I’m a nervous dog mom, but Joy sends lots of adorable photos so I’m never worried when I’m away. She’s the best!

Joy did a great job pet sitting on short notice. She was very thorough on all communication. Thanks again!

Herx had a really good time with Joy. She clearly loves dogs. :) Joy took him on a regular walks, played with him inside and sent me updates and pictures. I will rebook with Joy in the future.

Outdoorsy Adventurous Dog Lover

I've been volunteering with animal shelters, farms, and humane societies since 2003. I even once volunteered at a cat and dog sanctuary in Belize that housed over 80 cats and 5 dogs — feeding, cleaning, grooming, bathing, and walking them.

I have experience handling animals with bad behavior and slight aggression as I owned a "bipolar" dog and have worked with unpredictable strays and rescues. I also have basic training skills. I'm safety-oriented and outdoorsy. Your ...

What Joy would like to know about your dog

I love big dogs, but I'll gladly accept all sizes and breeds. My household does have 2 cats, so I'd like to know first how your dog interacts with cats if it were to be cared for in my apartment (the cats are typically put into the big bedroom to be separated from any dogs, but it's nice when they can be out as well). Any type of medical history or needs would be helpful to know, too.

When Joy watches your pet

Parks are real close to me, so you can guarantee that a lot of fun walks for your dog will be here! I have no qualms with getting dirty or getting into nature. But don't worry — I'll make sure your pup is given a bath if he/she has been romping around in the outdoors!

I also love searching for murals around my new area, so it's almost a guarantee that you'll get some cool photos of your pup in front of some art!
