About Dale and Joyce

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have had dogs for years and recently lost my best friend. I miss him but don't want to get another dog. I love to care for my neighbor's dog and my son's dog when they go away.I think it would be rewarding for me to care for your friend, and for me to make new friends.

Please Note: I require a Meet-and-Greet before your dog(s) come to stay. It's best for all of us.

Also, when I keep your dog(s) I do not keep anyone else's. I do accept reservations for multiple dogs from YOUR home. We can work that out at the Meet-and-Greet.

This stay with Dale and Joyce was Wilmas first time away from home. They are the nicest couple. I think Wilma really liked staying at thier home. I will be calling on them the next time we go away!!! Thanks for being so kind to Wilma.
Sid was so happy to see Dale and Joyce it warmed my heart. He is obviously so comfortable with them, I have no reservations about leaving him with them. I only wish they weren't such popular hosts!
As always, they loved my Stella and she loved them! Thanks Dale & Joyce??
My pup was super happy with Dale and Joyce! I will definitely leave my precious pup with them again. They took great care of my little guy!!! :)
Our dog Lucky was happier and more energetic when we got him back than he has been in years. It was a terrific experience for our dog and for us.
Dale and Joyce took wonderful care of my small dog for the week. She was very happy to stay there and I could tell that she was loved while we were away. We will definitely be bringing Molly back to stay with them! Thank you Dale and Joyce.
Love Dale and Joyce! Reese and Buoy had a great time and we will certainly be visiting again!
Dale and Joyce were great with our dog, Bailey. We felt confident she was in good hands and they truly enjoyed having her there. We will definitely use them again in the future.
We left our older Corgi and our Terrier mix with Dale & Joyce for just over a week. The dogs were treated fantastically and you can tell they really enjoyed their stay. We were updated every few days about the dogs and even received pictures. It really puts your mind at ease when your dogs are with a caring couple. We plan to use Dale/Joyce again!
Molly and Gracie loved their stay with Dale and Joyce. I was SO happy to have found them. I felt comfortable and at ease leaving them knowing that Dale and Joyce would love them and treat them as their own while we were away. They are true dog lovers! I cannot say enough good things about them! I highly recommend them!
Joyce & Dale are Lily's second parents! Her home away from home. She loves being with them and we couldn't be happier that she has a great home when we travel!
Dale and Joyce are amazing! They have watched Toby twice now and I can't say enough about how wonderful they are!! I feel like they really care about him and they always send pictures of him looking like he's so relaxed and comfortable.
Dale and Joyce were wonderful with Sid. They sent me photos and notes of how Sid was doing which put my mind at ease and helped me have a more relaxed vacation. He loved his stay there so much he wasn't even wild-out-of-his-mind with excitement when I came to get him like he usually is! Dale and Joyce and DogVacay are winners for me. I'll use you agan and again.
Our senior dog spent a month with Dale and Joyce, and we couldn't be happier with the care they gave her. The photos and messages we received during our time away were much appreciated. Our dog's a bit nervous with new people, but she settled right in with them and had a great time. It's obvious that Dale and Joyce really love dogs, and our dog loved them!
Our first time using Dogvacay. Our stella was well cared for. Dale and Joyce loved our stella as if she were theirs. We were able to enjoy our mini vacay knowing she was in excellent hands. Thank you so much!
We have a very finicky, spoiled rotten 2.8 lb. yorkie who is not fond of anyone other than "mom" and dad, if mom's not around. Dale and Joyce took to Max right away. We felt very comfortable leaving him with them. We know that he was very nervous but Joyce and Dale took very good care of him. I would use their service again.
Daisy stayed with Joyce and Dale last week, and we couldn't have asked for a better environment or care for her while we were on vacation. She loves being the only dog in the house, and got lots of love and attention. We received pictures and updates during the week, which was nice to see. We will definitely call them again the next time we travel.
This was our first time using and Dale and Joyce made it so easy for us! I could tell our boys (two mini schnauzers) had a great time, when we got home they passed out from playing all day. While we were gone they checked in with us with a picture too! We'll be back!
I had a great experience with Dale and Joyce watching my dog the first time so I booked a longer stay for my dog this time and it was great again! They make me feel like family and I know they are treating my dog with extra special care. They let her sleep with them and I gave the okay for them to give my dog table scraps so she would eat while I was away and they made sure to keep it limited to healthy food. I highly recommend them!
Our Lily thoroughly enjoyed her visit with Joyce and Dale. They are wonderful people and very caring. It is obvious they love dogs. We have already booked two more dates with them! Their fenced yard was a big hit with Lily and she misses that now that she is home!
Dale and Joyce were great! Would definitely use them again.
What a wonderful couple! We could not be more pleased with the reception and care our Sophie received while at their home. It's so evident that Dale and Joyce truly love dogs and we could see that Sophie bonded with them and felt right at home. We will not hesitate to be "return customers"! Thanks so much, Dale and Joyce! You are a blessing...
Dale and Joyce were very attentive to my dog. She had hurt her right leg a few days before coming to stay with them and they made sure she didn't over use her leg so she could heal. I felt confident that my dog was well cared for by two kind people.
This was our first time using DogVacay, and being overprotective dog parents, and after meeting with Joyce at our initial meet and greet, we felt very comfortable leaving our dog in their care. After picking her up, we could tell that they had given our little sweetie plenty of lap time and attention.
They responded very quickly to our inquiries and emails. We hope to take our dog to their home again.
I am so grateful to Joyce and Dale for watching my dog! They really set me at ease at the meet and great and so I decided to give this a try for my dog who just doesn't do well at a kennel because she is an older dog who has usually remained at home whenever we went on vacation.

Joyce and Dale welcomed my dog into their home and they were genuinely excited to have her there. They took my dog for a walk each day and sent me regular updates and photos to make sure that I knew she was okay. They really do act as "grand pawrents". I highly recommend them and will definitely reach out to them next time we need a dog sitter!

I think my dog was sad to leave! Thank you so much to Dog vacay for creating this safe service.
Not using the DogVacay service before, we were a little hesitant, but we were able to meet Dale & Joyce prior to our dog's stay and they put us at ease. They were so kind to send us updates and pictures to help ensure the great care she was given. We would definitely recommend Dale & Joyce and will absolutely be using them in the future!
Joyce and Dale were great for my 2 older dogs. They kept me updated on how they were doing, pictures were sent, texts responded to in a timely manner. I am so happy to have found someone to take care of them.
We have three dogs who are spoiled rotten so taking care of them can be a challenge. Dale and Joyce were fantastic! It was so nice to know that they were so well taken care of. What a great alternative to boarding at a kennel. We will definitely use Dale and Joyce the next time we need to leave our dogs!!
My 2 dachshunds may have had a better vacation that I did. Dale and Joyce treated them like privileged guests. It was obvious from the pictures they sent that the dogs had acclimated well and were having a good time.When I picked them up, they seemed in no great hurry to leave. I feel fortunate to have found such a great couple and I recommend them highly. Joyce was even able to help me with an eating problem that one of the dogs had. I feel like they received a lot of attention.
Dale and Joyce are truly wonderful! This was my first time working with them but as soon as Cosby met them, he was at ease. It's obvious that they love dogs and loved on my little Cosby.

Dale and Joyce are keepers and I will not hesitate to contact them in the future whenever I have to travel.
