About Jocelyn

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My services have changed to housesitting in your home (daycare or overnight), pick up/drop offs, and visits. I am a veterinary technician in training, and very comfortable administering medicines and injections if your pet has special needs.

I loved my dog to pieces (she was my inspiration to start this 3 years ago), and therefore understand completely how you would want the same care and affection for your special furbaby while you're away. I'm happy to walk/exercise/play with/bathe your dog while you vacation. I can stay in your home to provide a human comforter overnight and I will ensure your pup gets individualized attention, quality playtime, and plenty of love!

Please make sure your pup is up to date on vaccinations, flea medicine, and heartgard and be able to provide documentation of such.

She's the best. Period.
She did a great job! The dogs love her, and our Daisy has diabetes, she took great care with her shots and diet! Would book her again in a second. Jocelyn is going to make a great Vet-tek! Thanks again!
Jocelyn is a sweetheart. My very shy and anxious dogs took to her immediately. She is dependable and a life-saver! So grateful to have found her.
Jocelyn was great! She took my dog out running and kept me updated with photos and texts all weekend. Roscoe was happy, healthy and relaxed when I picked him up. Would definitely recommend!
My dog is always so happy there so I know she is well taken care of. Jocelyn is the best!
Great stay.
Same great care as always.
Great stay. Very flexible with drop off and pick up. Would definitely recommend.
Great, no problems at all. Thanks.
We left Molly, our 4.5 month Shih Tsu, with Jocelyn and she got to play with the big dogs. Jocelyn reported Molly socialized very well and we can recommend Jocelyn if you need a pet sitter.
We have used Jocelyn three times now & will definitely continue to use her services from now on! She is extremely flexible, keeps us updated, sends pictures and takes such great care of our dog! So great knowing we don't have to worry about him while we're away.
Our experience with Jocelyn has always been fantastic! She always keeps us updated via text and sends pictures of all the adventures she goes on with our puppy Skylar. We always feel Skylar is in the best hands! We would absolutely recommend Jocelyn to anyone!
Toby loves Jocelyn, what else can I say :-)
Jocelyn always terrific. Check out my earlier posts.
Jocelyn was absolutely fantastic with our 4 month old mini aussie, Skylar. She took her super last minute and was so happy to have her. We got constant updates which was so nice, as this was the first time we had ever left our little one with someone else. I always felt confident that she was taking care of Skylar and having fun with her. ABSOLUTELY recommend and we will be using Jocelyn in the future!!
As always, Jocelyn was amazing with my German Shepherd. I never feel the least bit anxious about leaving her in Jocelyn's care. I can't recommend her highly enough!
Jocelyn is the best! She always sends updates and pictures so that I'm involved in what my dog has been up to. I can tell that she really loves animals, and after a terrible experience elsewhere, it was so great to find someone that I can actually trust with my Ripley. You should totally use her services!
Vauldi had a great time at Jocelyn's and I'm not sure she was ready to come home! Vauldi is a timid dog and I was nervous that she would hide under the bed the whole time. Nope; she has a new best friend!
Jocelyn was wonderful with our shy Mini Aussie. He doesn't let anyone pet him, but within a day, Jocelyn sent us a photo of her doing just that. This gave us great peace of mind. She took him on long walks and kept us informed several times during the day of his activities and experience, with cute photos of him looking happy. This was our first experience with a sitter outside our home and with DogVacay. Both were winners. Thanks for the love you showed our puppy.
Jocelyn obviously loves dogs very much and does a great job with my dog Marlowe. She is very prompt to respond to messages or texts. She always takes my boy on several walks each day. I would highly recommend her.
Last Spring break vacation went well, everybody were happy. Especially, Star and Butter Cup (S&BC) whose spent a week with Jocelyn.

We have a fabulous experiences with Jocelyn, our peace of mind is imperative whilst we're away from our lovely pets; S&BC have known Jocelyn for two years, and seems they had a great and fun times playing together with her. The pictures that you sent to us was very entertaining and we shared laughed with our loved one, down in SoCal.

Thank you so much for your kindness and good times shared with all of us, its highly appreciated.
My dog Bugsy can be a bit timid with newcomers, so I was nervous about leaving him with Jocelyn. However, when I picked him up at the end of the day, he was obviously quite comfortable with Jocelyn and crawled right into her lap as she put his harness back on. We will definitely be having Bugsy stay here again!
Jocelyn was great at keeping our young energetic dog entertained! She provided lots of updates and pictures which were wonderful while away. My pup seemed to enjoy her doggy vacation.
We were very happy with Jocelyn and so was our dog. Jocelyn was very friendly and pleasant to deal with. We didn't have use her overnight services, but she walked our dog for us and it worked out really well. We will definitely use her again. And our dog is a big, strong dog but that didn't bother Jocelyn at all.
Jocelyn did a great job with Bella. She took care of our dog as well as we would. I would recommend Jocelyn without reservation.
Our experience with Jocelyn was the best! She took phenomenal care of our golden retriever, Mia, and it was fun getting pictures and updates during our trip. In the days after we picked up Mia, we could tell that she was missing Jocelyn! We will definitely continue to use Jocelyn in the future!
THE BEST!!! Our Golden, Chase, was cared for in a way that leaves us so appreciative of Jocelyn's high level of supervision and loving attention. We leave him and know that he will have a great time.
Another great experience with Jocelyn for Callie. She got tons of attention and I could tell that she loved every minute! Got to play with other dogs and even got a bone for Thanksgiving!
Momo had a blast time with Jocelyn. I'm glad that I left Momo with Jocelyn. She took Momo for plenty of walks. When we got home Momo went straight to sleep. She was tired from playing with Sammie and Jocelyn.

If I ever need a dog sitter again, I'll go to Jocelyn again!
felt good about leaving our pet with Jocelyn
Jocelyn is absolutely great. She is very flexible to suit you and your dog's needs. She goes the extra mile to make your pet's stay enjoyable. I highly recommend her to anyone.
Jocelyn was great. My little Yorkshire/Schnauzer mix is really hyper and yet Jocelyn took a good care of him. She even bought him some new chew toys and gave him the exercise he needed. I would definitely board Lucky again with her. Highly recommend.
Great stay for our golden, Chase. Jocelyn was the best!! She kept Chase for a week, walked him daily, sent us photos and updates, and was so easy to work with. Look forward to having her watch Chase in the future and would highly recommend.
Jocelyn was great! My puppy got tons of play time and was clearly very happy. I got a message with photos and an update which was fantastic! Will definitely go back to her next time I need a place for my pup. Highly recommended.
Jocelyn was wonderful with Bodhi during her overnight stay. When I picked Bodhi up she was happy, relaxed and clean, as Jocelyn had given her a bath due to the heat. Bodhi slept in the car all the way home because Jocelyn had taken her on several long walks. I truly thing my dog had a great time on her Vacay! Yeah Jocelyn!!!
Our dog, Seamus, had a terrific time with Jocelyn and her dog, Sammie. Jocelyn made sure he got plenty of exercise and even gave him a bath before we picked him up. She was very flexible with our schedule. I felt assured that Seamus was in good hands during our trip; Jocelyn even sent emails with updates and pics. We will definitely have Seamus stay with her again next time we are out of town.
Jocelyn was a great dogvacay host for Shasta!

We are confident that she brought our golden doodle Shasta into her family and treated her as one of her own with the larger pack! very cool.

She emailed regular photo updates and news about Shasta's dogvacay. Daily walks - and trips to the river were great to hear about. She loves water.

Shasta came home Happy and Healthy. Thanks!
Jocelyn is very flexible and helpful when I have to extend my stay. In deed, Jocelyn is very reliable in taking care of my two big babies (Star and Buttercup), as well as my situations in need.
Finding a host for boarding two "XL" pets kinda challenging. Having met Jocelyn who has an ability to taking care good of my two babies, was very grateful. She did a great job as a host, my Star and Buttercup were very happy and healthy stayed with her during my four days vacation.

Her location is very easy to find and close to Hwy 80 in Davis and the green belt is right behind her home. I was very satisfied with her services and will do some business again in the near future.
