I had a last minute need for care due to a family emergency. Joy was very accommodating and took care of Queen as if she was her own. She sent pictures and regular updates to give us a piece of mind that Queen was in great care and allow us one less thing to worry about in our troubling times. I strongly recommend Joy for your sitter needs.

Joy did a great job with my two pups and kept me informed throughout the stay. She was also very flexible with pick up/drop off. I would definitely recommend her.

Dog Whisperer (Allergic to cats)

****Unfortunately, I am very allergic to cats so if your family includes friends of the feline variety I will not be able to accept requests from your family. *****

My friends and family all call me the dog whisperer. I grew up with 2 black labs and when they both passed, I became a foster mom for the Human Society for 4 years.

Being a foster mom for dogs means that you get the joy of ...

What Joy would like to know about your dog

For Boarding: I am looking forward to making your dogs vacation as great as yours! To keep them safe while I'm away I require that their pet parents bring their crate with them. I only crate pup friends when I leave but I've found that dogs sometimes get anxious when left alone in a strange place and so it's best to crate them so they can't accidentally hurt themselves.

In general, I want to know what your dog loves to do, what they are allergic to, any medicines they are on, do they get along well with other dogs, are they afraid of anything, and most importantly what does their routine look like!! I want to make sure that they feel safe and at ease as much as possible while you are gone.

When Joy watches your pet

Walks around the neighborhood and playtime are some of my favorite things to do with pups. I also love to cuddle and give some good belly rubs.
