While we were away for a few days, we used Joy's services to walk, play and spend time with our beloved Golden Retriever, who is a wild child:) We are very satisfied with our experience with Joy. She did all that we ask of her and had no problem handling our golden girl. Also, she responded in a timely manner to text and e-mail messages. Hope to use Joy again in the future, Thanks Joy!

Joy was friendly and accommodating and Cooper loved her. She spent 2 nights with him and kept in touch with us and sent us pictures. He’s never been left with a sitter before and we were a bit nervous but she reassured us with her calm, capable manner. Will definitely have her again!

EnJOY quality pet care

Working at Lagunitas Brewing Co. gets me face-to-face with plenty of pups but it also got me thinking about providing a legitimate service to my surrounding pet community. With my current living situation not permitting me to have pets of my own, I thought this would be a great opportunity to spend some time with awesome local dogs while providing pet owners the peace of mind of having hassle-free, quality pet care in their home ...

What Joy would like to know about your dog

I'm here to support any training practices you and your family may already have in place so please let me know any specific command words, body language or routines you may have with your pet.

When Joy watches your pet

Duties of pet sitting I've performed in the past include outdoor activities such as walking, jogging, hiking and swimming in addition to solid play time sessions. When I stay with your pet, in addition to regular feedings, hydration and waste clean up, I'd be happy to assist them in the following ways if necessary: light grooming (bathing, tick checks, brushing), and medication administration (oral capsules/liquids, topical ointment, flea/tick treatments, etc.).
