Joy was incredible! She handled my big, sometimes anxious pup with ease. Any worries that I might have had were short lived. She was communicative and flexible, her update photos were fantastic and I would happily take Bently back for another stay!

Joy is amazing. I have a new puppy and I was worried about leaving him with anyone especially because he is not old enough to have had all of his vaccines yet. Joy bent over backwards to make me feel comfortable and ensure that he was safe. Every morning Watson would get so excited when he saw Joy so I knew he loved staying with her.

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.
