I'm always nervous leaving my dog with anyone that I do not know but Joy helped me with that. She continued to send me pics throughout my Dallas's stay with her. The pics helped so much with being comfortable leaving her with Joy. Joy was very friendly and my dog seemed to like her a lot.

Joy is very kind and communicative. I felt at ease having my dog stay with Joy. When I picked up my usual high energy dog, she was calm and relaxed. If I lived in Chicago I would definitely ask Joy to watch my dog again.

Your Dog Will Be Loved!

I’ve dedicated my whole life to taking care of pups, so making them as happy as can be is simply my expertise! I was always inspired by pups to give back however I can, so getting to be a dog sitter really is a dream come true for me. Their unconditional love and openness has just always been something that I’ve tried to emulate my whole life!

I’ve been a lifelong dog ...

What Joy would like to know about your dog

Some things I like to learn ahead of time:

Would you like to schedule a meet-and-greet before the stay?
What’s your preferred method of communication?
Does your pup have any health issues that need to be tended to? For instance, dietary restrictions, medicine, or behavior triggers?
Do you have a vet nearby that you trust?
Is your dog spayed/neutered?
Does your pup like to stick to a given schedule, like regular walks in the morning and evening?
What does your pup do well around? What does your pup try to avoid?
What’s the best way to spoil your pup?

When Joy watches your pet

If your pup likes getting lots of exercise, they’ll be right at home with me! I love getting lots of exercise, and there are tons of great places to head to near me. I live about 10 minutes away from a great dog park that is perfect for all kinds of fun. It’s such a great place to head to if your pup wants to meet some new friends or just hang out with some other pups!

I have an open schedule, so I’m very flexible when it comes to dog sitting. I’m able to spend lots of time with your pup, which means that I’m a very good fit for dogs that are used to having a human presence around them during the day—or ones that could benefit from that! I’m also happy to work around unorthodox schedules. I’m just here for you and your pup, no matter what!
