About Joy

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
ABOUT ME:
This is very much a dog loving family! Your doggie will have their own private backyard. I currently have three dogs (small, medium and large) ALL are very friendly and sweet. I have had dogs our whole lives since early childhood. I also work a lot from home so I can spend any needed specialized time with your furry baby.

I have two FULL separate backyards! My guest doggies would have their own separate fenced and gated guest house back yard with a beautiful jacaranda tree and covered patio for shade if that is want you want. My three doggies are in their own separate fenced and gated backyard but will integrate the pups if you wish.

I am close to the local park for doggie walks and live in a very nice and friendly neighborhood.

How long have you been a dog lover?
-Tell us about your history with dogs.

My son and I have had dogs our whole lives since early childhood. We are definitely a dog loving family! We currently have three dogs (small, medium and large) ALL are very friendly and sweet.

We have adopted all three of our dogs and have undergone advanced screening that culminated in a face-to-face in-home interview with a home inspection.

Some years ago, I did some dog training lessons at California K9 Academy. It was so much fun and an experience never to forget.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

- Is your doggie super friendly with no history of biting/attacking another?

- Your pooch must be non-aggressive.
- Does your dog have any issues that we need to be aware of such as with children playing at the park?

- Also, are they current on all his/her shots?

- Do they have any special dietary needs?

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

Yes, we sure do.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Yes, we have experience with pill form, ear and eye drops.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

We work a lot from home so we can spend any needed specialized time with your furry baby.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

We have two FULL separate
backyards! Our guest doggies would have their own separate fenced and gated guest house backyard with a beautiful jacaranda tree and covered patio for shade. It is approximately a little over 1000 sq. ft. without the covered patio area. The guest yard is fenced with a 6 foot wood and 12 foot wall. See attached photo's.
Our three doggies are in their own separate fenced and gated backyard.

Where will my dog sleep?

If your pup has a special bed they prefer that is fine too. If your pup prefers the crate, please feel free to bring it along. We also have a "large open-style" crate.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

We are VERY close to the local park for doggie walks and live in a very nice and friendly neighborhood.

This was the first time I had Joy watch my mutt, Buddy. Joy is obviously a very experienced sitter and Buddy had a very good stay. Joy was very good about sending photos and keeping good lines of communication. She was very cooperative about setting up drop off and pick up times with me. Thanks for the nice visit!

It was a good experience
This was my first time leaving my dog anywhere. I was so nervous!! Joy was the best! She sent me emails with pics all day long. I would use Joy again without a second thought!!! Thank you Joy for taking such good care of my Minnie!!
Joy was awesome as usual. Every time we drop Debi off she's very happy to be there. Joy and her dogs keep her busy all day. The photo updates are great too. Thank you!
Joy is the best Dog Sitter I could have for my dog. She has a great area with lots of love and fun! The most important part of it is that she is affective and gives attention to the dogs. My dog showed affection for her at the first meeting and as soon as she started talking to my dog, I saw that it would be great and fun!!! My dog comes back home completely satisfied and confident!!

Maxx LOVES Joy and so do I. She is the kindest most attentive dog caretaker and I will always go to her above all others.

Saying she goes the extra mile is an understatement!

Maxx cried when picked him up because he didn't want to leave!

She is absolutely the best!!!!

We loved having our Miley with Joy. She is thoughtful, loving, fun and a great caretaker. We can't wait to have Miley visit again soon!
Joy was very patient with my dogs and made sure they had a lot of fun. She kept me updated several times a day with pictures so that I could know they were in good hands. She's a great listener and took into consideration all the little nuances of my little ones. I was really happy that she has a fenced in backyard where they could be outdoors and play safely, which they don't get a chance to do very often. I would highly recommend Joy to care for you pups.

Poppy had a great day at Joy's house! Joy made her feel welcome and integrated her with the other dogs with care and expertise. It was very convenient for us to leave Poppy with Joy for the day to go visit Universal Studios. Joy has her outdoor space set up to keep several dog guests occupied and separate if needed and her love for dogs is easy to see. Thanks, Joy!

Joy and David are great! Our golden retriever FIFA has stayed with them twice over the Holidays.

If you are like my husband and I your pup is a part of the family and leaving them during the holidays is tough. Joy sent tons of pictures and videos of FIFA having a great time with their pack of pups.

If your looking for a warm home for your dog while you are away I would 100% recommend Joy and David!

Very friendly hosts Sydney had a great time and we appreciated the photos and video of her vacay.
As always, Joy and David are amazing! Our puppies are always so excited to be there the minute we get out of the car :)
another great day of care for our pup!
Our guy Raleigh has spent a lot of time with Joy and David and their pack. And I just love how much fun he has when he's there.
See all my previous reviews for more details...but this is just great stuff!

Another great week @ David and Joy's! These guys just take the best care of your four pawed family when you need them to be somewhere else than at home. So glad they are doing what they're doing. Lorrie
I can never say enough good about David and Joy regarding our dog, Raleigh. They take the best care of him. And they make sure I know how he's spending his day with great photos and comments. It's his home away from home when I'm at work all day. They just really love and care for your pet in the best way possible.

I love that there is the consistency of love and care for our pup at David and Joy's house, and there is also new experiences for Raleigh every week as well.
Joy is always great about letting me know about another dog that they are keeping, and she's so on top of letting them play together to see how they get along and keeping us in the loop of events.
And they always send excellent pictures and videos of moments thru the day.
So glad we found these guys! They're just the best!

Great Success! Raleigh has been staying with David and Joy doing "day care" for several weeks off and on.... but this was his first "Staycation".
And he had a great time. They just spend such quality time and go for walks, let him take naps and play with their dogs-all with adult supervision.
As before, they send great photos of moments thru out the day.....and action videos.
You just feel so much easier, knowing they are taking such loving care of your own pet.

Joy was great with my dog Kiya. She helped us in socializing Kiya with other dogs that were at her house. Joy was patient and loving. I got photos of Kiya daily and short texts letting me know how Kiya was doing throughout her stay.
Raleigh has had several weeks of Day Care with David and Joy, and my other reviews will tell you how well that has gone.
This was the first time he'd ever not spent the night at home. Joy and David were once again great about sending photos and notes about how he was doing. And Joy asked several questions about Raleigh's night time routine, to try to make him as comfortable as possible in a different place for sleeping. They really do care for your pup as if they were one of their own. And are very watchful for puppy nonsense.... which can come often with a 7 month old Frenchie.
Thank you again, Joy and David.

Raleigh had another great week of day care at David & Joy's! They take such good care of him. He's learning to play well with other dogs ( yes, still a pup). David and Joy supervise playtime, and Smokey makes sure everyone in the pack behaves well.
And I get to feel like I'm right there watching, because they're so good at sending pictures and videos of the day. Can't thank you enough.

David and Joy were great! Joy was so awesome at keeping us updated, she sent us a TON of pictures while we were away! Our pups Penny and Sheldon had a great time playing with her 3 dogs, but also had some time to themselves since she has 2 separate back yards. I will definitely be sending my pups off to her next time we need a sitter!

David and Joy have given me reason to smile every day. They have sent me great pictures of Raleigh playing: Playing with their dogs, playing with toys, playing with people... and included descriptive notes along with the pictures, so I can easily see that Raleigh is having a great time, and being well cared for. I can tell they are spending time with him. And he's learning a lot - all in a supervised way.
I will say that I was at first a little nervous, for a pup, to learn to play well with 3 other dogs... but I needn't have worried a bit.
David and Joy clearly love their dogs and have welcomed our pup into their world and made him
feel right at home. It's been a great week.
Thanks so much!

Taco had a great experience with David & Joy! Their other dogs were sweet and welcoming to Taco and he had a great time. They sent many great and enjoyable picture updates and when my plans ran a little late, they were flexible about the pick up time. Taco had a lot of social time and many walks in the park in the day that he spent with them. Highly recommended folks!
