About Dr. Jocelyn

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am self-employed therefore; I dictate my daily schedule! I love all animals and my experience in the psychology field defiantly applies to how I work with your animal. I can provide one-on-one support to your animal as I practice animal mindfulness..."the here and now concept." Animals are able to communicate with their eyes, paws, tails, and tongues but we humans can easily miss these communication cues as they could be signs of sickness, happiness, depression, or sadness.

My home is large and I have a animal friendly beautiful backyard! My home is clean yet appealing to animals as they will be treated like "family."

Please note boarding services drop-off and pick-up: drop off time is Anytime after 9am and pick-up is at 4:30pm. Anything after 4:30pm is considered another day...I can work with you if you inform me ahead of time about your schedule.

I am able to wake up to the break of day and walk your dog/animal, feed your dog/animal and close the day with greatness.

Cheers for animals!

This was our first time using DogVacay and Dr. Jocelyn and I gotta say I am impressed!! We felt no stress or worry knowing she was here taking great care of our girls. Loved the check in's from her, kept our minds at ease! She did a great job taking care of our girls and our home. We will use her every chance we can!!!
Simply can't rave enough about how fabulous Jocelyn and her family were to my furry family. This was my first experience with Dog Vacay as I've recently moved from TX and they always had family to babysit them. I felt very vulnerable leaving them for almost a week with essentially strangers. Those feelings were quickly assuaged as Jocelyn is an experienced host and her entire family and home are part of the deal. She sent pics and updates every day. My dogs and cat had a ball! They were happy to see me when I picked them up however they had lots of hugs for Jocelyn's family so I could tell it was a wonderful experience for them. We look forward to staying with this family many more times!
We are glad we found Dr. Jocelyn to take care of our two dogs for 4 weeks while we were vacationing out of country. Both of our dogs are seniors and one of them got a back injury few weeks before our trip. First, we were worried leaving them for a long time. But we quickly shook that off because of Dr Jocelyn's assurances. She constantly updated us with messages and pictures. She stayed on top of both dogs' medications and is very organized with them. She even hand fed both dogs for days when they refused to eat. When we picked them up, both dogs were well and very happy. They also maintained their weight. We are very happy with the services Dr. Jocelyn provided. We sure will return in the future.
Jocelyn was easily the best sitter I've found on DogVacay or Rover. She was responsive, sent frequent pictures, was extremely prepared, and paid attention to details. She sent a thorough review of the stay towards the end and was flexible with drop off/pick up times. I'd definitely use her again.
Tugboat spent Christmas vacation with Dr Jocelyn as his first time away from home since his adoption. We were not sure how he would do but Dr. Jocelyn quickly put us at ease and had our exuberant 1 year old calmed down and feeling at home. He played and got lots of walks which this high energy youngster craves! We came back to a happy, clean dog (he even got a bath). I would highly recommend Dr. Jocelyn and certainly use her services again.
Dr. Jocelyn and her family were simply awesome. Stella is a rescue dog and suffers from separation anxiety. They handled her exceptionally well and Stella loved her stay. Thanks again definitely using her again.
Dr. Jocelyn was great! It was quite stressul for us leaving our bulldog, Booger, with a stranger for the weekend. Right from the start Dr. Jocelyn made us feel at ease. We received multiple updates with pictures attached throughout the weekend. When we picked Booger up and he was surprisingly calm and rested. He seemed happy following around one of children. Dr. Jocelyn did an excellent job and I will be sure to make a reservation with her again.
Clean! Clean! Clean! Inside and back yard of the house was so clean and nice. Dr. Jocelyn took a good care of my dog for 3 days. She walked my dog every day. She sent me photos so that I could relief.
Dr. Jocelyn has been excellent! I am so grateful that she is so wonderful about taking care of my boy and she is on top of everything. Thank you for your continuous care of my Frankie, it gives me such peace of mind knowing he's in good hands while I'm at work!
Dr. Jocelyn is the best! Our senior mini-schnauzer tends to be anxious when apart from us. Being new to the area, we didn't have the usual family member or friend to watch her. We had a great meet & greet, and I felt very comfortable leaving Xena with Dr. Jocelyn. She is very knowledgeable about dogs, warm & caring, and has a beautiful, comfortable home. She took time to understand Xena's personality and needs (she is on a special medication schedule). When we returned, Xena was happy and healthy. I couldn't ask for more. Xena even ran back to the door to say goodbye again as we were leaving. We're so happy to have found our new dog sitter!
This was the first time we've used a doggy vacation service. We are very pleased with the level of care Dr. Jocelyn and her family gave to our little Joey. The entire family was involved and welcomed Joey into their home and cared for him. For Joey, it was a much better option than a kennel type setting. We definitely plan to use the service again with Jocelyn. It is so nice to be able to enjoy your time away without any worries and know your family member is in good, caring hands. Jocelyn sent pictures along the way, as well. It was very comforting and great see "all was well"!
Couldn't have asked for a better experience and my pups were pretty happy too! Will definitely be booking again in the future. Dr. Jocelyn and her family are absolutely wonderful to work with!
Jocelyn gets an A+ from Scout and I. Great sitter - super kind and inviting - lovely, clean, comfortable home. Would definitely use Dr. Jocelyn again!!!
Dr. Jocelyn did an amazing job with our 4 dogs. We were gone for 9 days for our wedding, with the number of dogs we had her stay at our house. She kept us updated with daily pictures of the dogs and the house was perfectly clean when we got home, which is saying something since one of the dogs got sick when we were gone. I would recommend Dr.J to anyone and will use her again in the future.
Darcy had a great time!
Dr. J. was wonderful! From our initial meet and greet with her we felt comfortable with the care our pets would receive. She cared for our two dogs and one cat in our home and everything was handled perfectly. Dr. J. has a calm and reassuring personality and our pets were very much at home with her right away. Care was thorough and attentive, we loved the photos she sent, and her communication with us was just right. We will certainly be looking to book with her again when we are next planning to be away from home!
Our two pups really enjoyed there stay at your home. They were very comfortable from the very first moment they met Jocelyn. She is wonderful with animals. Our dogs both have big anxiety and I have never seen them more happy or comfortable while we were away from them. Thanks for taking care of our family like they were your own!
I definitely will recommend Dr. Jocelyn to my friends. She was very kind with Toby and updated me. I booked with just one day in advance, she was very flexible and responded very quickly. Toby's pick up was delayed by a few hours and Dr. Jocelyn adjusted her schedule, which was very nice of her.
My roommate and myself went camping out of town for a weekend, and Dr. Jocelyn did an amazing job of keeping us updated on how our pups were doing during her time housesitting for us! She sent us pictures each day that she watched our little guys, and made sure to send us updates about how they were doing on their potty breaks and everything in between. Our dogs immediately warmed up to her, and seemed to be really happy after the stay as well. We would definitely try to book her services again if we ever need someone to watch the little guys!
5 gold stars for Jocelyn. She and her husband were caring and attentive to Penelope's needs. The house and yard were the perfect size. Caring home. Thanks for watching Penelope for us. Great people.
Dr. Jocelyn was great. We felt how much she loves dogs. We were worried about my dog Godo's first time leaving with someone new. Dr. Jocelyn was really nice about it. The pictures with messages she sent us were enough to ease us. She always responded to my messages very quickly.
Our dog Godo was very sensitive first day. But when we met Godo again after 4 days, she was actually quite good with Dr. Jocelyn.
Thank you so much for taking care of Godo!!!
