I hate to post cause I don't want to share Trisha and Joyce, but they are wonderful caretakers for my senior pup Molly. She needs lots of affection and she gets it.

Another great stay with Joyce! We love having our dogs stay at Joyce's house. They have a comfy, cozy place to stay, lots of love and snuggles, and plenty of space to run around outside.

Great Place for Outdoor Dogs


We can take care of your dog(s) while you're away if they like to have room to roam. My 20 year old daughter (UW Seattle college student) would be helping me care for your pet(s) which means two times the attention for your pet(s). Also, since we don't have a dog of our own, we can give that much more attention to yours. We would be happy to care for one ...

What Joyce would like to know about your dog

We love all friendly, non-aggressive, non-drooling/slobbering (because of our carpeted area the dog(s) stay in) breeds of dogs. We have a special place in our hearts for German Shepherds of course due to our experience with Shadow, but we love all breeds. My daughter and I would like to meet you and your dog(s) before we commit to a sitting date, just to make sure everything is copacetic with everyone. In the initial contact with us we would appreciate it if you could describe the general character of your pet and their house habits.

When Joyce watches your pet

Around our neighborhood. We have a lot of side streets which are wide and not very busy. We also have Twin Ponds Park and Paramount Park close by.

All dogs in our care are welcome to sleep in our downstairs family room as long as they are current on their flea treatments, and are flea free while in our care. You are welcome to bring whatever bedding your pet is used to. To help comfort your pet while settling in at our house, it might be helpful to provide something containing the scent of the owners for the pet to have near it. We have a hide-a-bed we can use in the family room if your pet is used to sleeping in the same room as you. Depending upon size and behavior, we can talk about whether or not providing a crate or other carrier for your pet to sleep in would be beneficial.

If your dog is staying at our house, we will treat him/her like a member of our family. During the school year, I work as a kitchen helper for the school district, so there may be times when your pet might be left alone in our downstairs family room for just a few hours.
