About Joanne and Paul

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
!.PLEASE READ OUR PROFILE IN FULL, THANK YOU ! --- SPOTS FOR CHRISTMAS/NEW YEARS ARE LIMITED --- Serving Abington, Roslyn, Willow Grove and beyond !!! We are a great alternative to staying in a kennel. I am home most of the day except for an errand every now and then. My husband is very much involved as well when he gets home from work. We live in a ranch style home on 1/3 of an acre with part in which there is a 60' by 130' lot with a 5' high chain link fence for security.

WE DO NOT ACCEPT LAST MINUTE RESERVATIONS !!!

We have many repeat clients. Some come as far as Philadelphia, Cherry Hill, Ardmore ,Bryn Mawr, Phoenixville, West Chester and Center City areas ! We are a very short distance from PA Turnpike exit to Willow Grove !

Check out our facebook page HAPPY HUSKY HAVEN for more pictures !!

We have 40 plus years experience with the Northern Breeds (Siberian Huskies, American Eskimos and Alaskan Malamutes). We will watch any kind of dog as long as there are no "alphas, divas or aggressive" issues. All dogs need to be HOUSEBROKEN (no "PEE PADS") and SPAYED OR NEUTERED. We accept "continent" Seniors. All dogs must be able to navigate 3 deck steps. Please no "diggers" or "chewers" ! We don't normally take pups/dogs under 2 years old but we will access at the meet and greet. ALL SHOTS MUST BE CURRENT. I WILL NEED COPY OF THIS.

Your dog will not be crated unless it is part of their training with your crate. Your dog can sleep anywhere they want, including our bed. We want your pet to feel like they are at home. We follow your food schedule and administer medication and supplements in food or "pill pockets." We feed in stainless steel bowls. Bowls are washed after every meal. We cannot "FREE FEED" (leave food down all day) because of the other dogs that stay here.

With people vacationing for a week and some for a long weekends, there will be an overlap of dogs at times. There might be 3 dogs on any given week and up to 6 or 7 during weekends with constant supervision. We are flexible with drop off and pick up times. (NO EARLIER THAN 9 AM DROP OFFS OR LATER THAN 9 PM PICK UPS) After all this is a private home !

This is a one story rancher with no steps inside. There are a few deck steps for entrance to the house and deck steps that lead to the back yard should your dog have issues with getting up and down steps or is a Senior dog. Your dog will enjoy our huge yard for running and playing. In the evenings we spend time out back on the deck with the "fur-kids." This is a NON-SMOKING house with CENTRAL AIR. Our yard is treated for fleas and ticks and our dog is FLEA FREE!!! In the winter months, your dog will relax in the evening in the living room with us while being warmed by the wood burning stove. In the summer months we hang out back on the deck enjoying the fresh air.

So, bring your dog here and she/he will have fun and be well taken care of ! Your dog becomes our dog for the time they are here and will get hugs and love while you are away!!!

So click onto "request a free meet and greet" , fill in ALL of your dogs information.! Look forward to meeting you and your dog !

Another great stay. We never have a concerns when our guy is with jo and Paul. We know they treat him like family !!
Our Golden Sage loved loved loved her vacation!! Could not stop barking about it! She needs eye drops throughout the day for dry eye and Joanne did an excellent job keeping her eyes healthy. Very caring folks highly recommend them!
Joanne and Paul were great hosts. They were extremely kind for taking Raleigh on short notice. They were excellent communicators and always replied in a timely manner. We received numerous photos and updates via email. I highly recommend their services. We had full confidence that Raleigh was in a safe and loving environment. We look forward to booking with Joanne and Paul in the near future.

Another great stay. He loves it there and he's treated like one of the family.
Shea had a great day playing at Joanne and Paul's house! It was nice to get updates and pictures to see that she was having a good day, especially since it was her first visit.
I've left my Australian shepherd with Joanne several times, and she's always been on top of things.
I've used Joanne's services several times and feel very comfortable leaving my Australian shepherd with her.
Morgan & Bundy LOVE these guys when they go over there it's a vavation for them as well! There are no words to describe how wonderful are experience is with these guys! Amy & I love these guys too! They are PAWSOME!!!!!
I was so glad to stumble upon Joanne and Paul when I was in need of a dog sitter for my two 10 year old puggles. They were exactly what I was looking for. We hadn't vacationed without our dogs in over 6 years and I just did not want to board them in a cage for a whole week. When we did our meet and greet, Joanne was kind and knowledgeable. She answered all of my questions and was very welcoming immediately to both of my dogs. On drop off day, Paul was great and reassured me with a few last minute questions that I had. I received daily emails from them with pictures (some of the best pictures taken of my dogs). Even after pick up, Joanne was quick to answer a few post-stay questions via email and it showed how much she cared. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a pet sitter and I'm so glad that I know have my sitter going forward!!

Thank you Joanne & Paul !! We always feel good bringing Reesie to your house knowing that she is in good hands!! See you in December! Bob & Alicia
A great big thank you to Paul and Joanne for watching our 1 year old pup for a lengthy week+ stay. Although we missed her very much, we felt very comfortable knowing that she was in caring hands. We loved getting different pictures of her just about every day when we could connect. You could clearly see that she was having fun with the other dogs that were in their care as well. Another great thing is that our pup ate which means she was comfortable as well. Highly recommend this sitter and are actually using again in a couple of weeks!

Corrado had another great stay at Joanne and Paul's house. I always know he'll have lots of fun and get lots of love when he's there. It makes going away more relaxing!
Yet again another great stay at Joanne's!! I'm Always relaxed leaving Nero with them. I don't know what we would do without them.
Joanne and Paul came through for us once again! We planned a rather last minute July 4th vacation and needed someone to watch our furbaby. We reached out to Joanne and Paul and of course they were glad to help us out. We left our dog in their capable hands for just about a week. I'm always a little nervous to leave her for that long, but I know that she is well cared for and enjoys her time there. We got daily pics and updates to keep us updated, which is so appreciated. We came back to pick up a happy (and tired) little pup who enjoyed her own mini vacation. I can not recommend Joannae and Paul enough!!

Our dog had yet another wonderful stay with Joanne, Paul, Frankie and the other pups who were visiting! He loves playing in the yard and napping with his friends. He came home happy and exhausted. We're so lucky to have found the ideal place for our pup.

Joann was amazing! She made my shy dog feel right at home for our 10 day vacation. She came home happy and tired. The daily pictures/videos were fantastic and gave me comfort knowing my dog was doing well. We already have our next stay booked and will be using Joann anytime we go away!

First stay for Cooper! Joanne and Paul were awesome. Lots of pictures and we could relax knowing Cooper was in a safe & dog loving home
Simba had another wonderful visit with Joanne & Paul.
This was our first time boarding Oreo since we adopted her 6 months ago from a rescue organization. Joanne was absolutely wonderful!! She was everything we could have hoped for and we left feeling confident that Oreo would have a great time. She clearly cares about all the dogs in her care and was warm and welcoming to our pup. We loved the daily pictures delivered to our email while away. We will definitely be going back!!

We needed a night added to the beginning of our vacation and as usual Joanne help us out last min. We love them.
Just another great stay for our boy!!! He's just part of Joanne and Paul's family when he's there. We love having him taken care of by the best.
Thank you for taking such good care of Penny!
Onyx and Scamp enjoyed their Doggy Vacay with Joanne and Paul. Highly recommend for anyone wishing a time away from their pet without the worry that they are being cared for.
Another great visit for Nero !!!! He's always treated like part of the family by Paul and Joanne so we never have to worry about him while we are away. This makes our vacation more relaxing. Thank you Joanne and Paul.
We could tell sasha really had a good time!! looking forward to the next time
Joanne and Paul (and Frankie!) continue to be great, accommodating hosts. Recently I had a family emergency and needed to leave town on short notice. Joanne didn't hesitate to make room for Corrado. As usual, I received email updates showing what a great time he was having - playing in their yard with the other dogs and napping by the wood burning stove. :) I cannot express how thankful we are to have found such great people.

Joanne and Paul were wonderful. Simba had a great time and we received pictures everyday. It was our first DogVacay experience and we will certainly use Joanne and Paul again.
Excellent. This was our Sasha's first stay with Jo and Paul. She clearly had a great time. The period pictures were great. You can tell she really cared for our dog. Will definitely use her again..
I can't begin to even tell you how great Joanne and Paul are! My guy Nero is so relaxed when I take him there and that's saying a lot because he's attached to my hip at home. when I go out the door her whines my wife says to me all the time, but at Jo's he walk away like I don't exist. It's nice to know he's happy and well cared for when I'm away. Nothing but a five start place for my guys Vacay. Thanks again Joanne and Paul !!!!!!!

One of the best experiences. She is the best at what she does. We will definitely be using her again!!!
We couldn't have been happier with Joanne and Paul's excellent care for our pup! They were incredibly thoughtful and we loved knowing he was in such a warm and caring home. When I picked him up he was wagging his tail and obviously had a great time! Thanks so much Joanne and Paul!

Foxy had a great time during her stay with Paul and Joanne, she got the royal treatment and enjoyed playing with the other dogs. I strongly recommend this house to all dog owners who truly love their dog.
Joanne is one of the best out there. I will definitely be using her again.
I had the best experience using Joanne and Paul they are true dog lovers. Without a doubt I will use them again.
Just as they always do they made him feel like he was home. When we pick him up he is relaxed and a happy guy. They are the best !!!
Another great stay with Joanne and Paul. Ernie always comes home happy and tired, and we know he's in great hands and having a great time with his buddies. We love the fantastic pictures and updates, and thank goodness for these dog lovers!!
We were very satisfied with Paul and Joanne. We have three dogs and they were able to not only accommodate the whole clan but took them into their home like family. Their resident husky, Frankie, has the sweetest disposition and made my dogs (a golden mix and two chihuahuas) feel right at home. We loved the safety and security of their large fenced in yard and got the impression Paul and Joanne are exceptionally attentive and caring. We also really loved getting pictures almost daily of our pups--it made us enjoy our vacation that much more knowing our dogs were being well cared for!

They treat you pup like thier own. I would defiantly use them again
They are the best out there!! I wouldn't use anyone else.
Paul and Joanne are fantastic. Rocco always has the best time there. Always so worn out when he gets home. They send pictures of our pup everyday, which is great.

Thanks for allowing us to enjoy our vacation, sound in the knowledge that our dog is well taken care of.

Excellent . Very pleased . Looks like Smiley had a good time with them. Will definitely be back.
Corrado had another wonderful stay with Joanne and Paul. They took care of him like he was their own and even tried different things to make him comfortable when his skin allergies were acting up. I could tell by the photos that Joanne emailed me that he was having a great time playing in the yard and sleeping by the fire. It feels great to know we are leaving him in such good hands.

Joanne is an expert dog sitter. Max is always excited to go and happy when I pick him up. I can always count on her, and to me, trust is what matters!
Lucy had a great time with Joanne and Paul. You can tell that they are real dog lovers. Lucy is nervous in new situations so I really appreciate the extra time that they took at our meet and greet to make sure Lucy would adjust. We won't hesitate to send Lucy back.

Easy and comforting as always
Joanne is the best! We feel 101% comfortable leaving our precious four-legged family member in her care. Joanne and Paul have hosted Mandy, our border collie, several times and we are completely satisfied. Thank you Joanne!
Nikki had a blast with joann & Paul! We left for our trip, with total peace of mind that Nikki was in very capable, trustworthy hands. Joanne kept me updated with a lots of pics and informative messages. We Totally appreciated that. Nikki had some digestive issues that Joanne had no problem treating and keeping an eye on. That's we don't put our Nikki anywhere else!

Joanne and Paul are AWESOME! I could not more highly recommend them. They are incredibly accommodating and provided a wonderful home for our dog. We got pictures of him more days than not. You could tell he was having a great time and getting lots of attention. Thank you so much for giving us peace of mind that we were leaving our dog in the best possible place.

Our dog loved his time at Joanne and Paul's - he didn't want to leave! After our first communication and initial meet and greet, I had absolutely no hesitation about leaving Corrado with them for a week while we were out of the country. Joanne is truly a "dog person"; she understands dog behavior and makes sure all of the dogs are comfortable and happy. While we were away we received lots of pictures of our dog having a great time. Thier dog, Frankie, is a great ambassador! Joanne and Paul were also very accommodating about drop-off and pick-up times and responded to any questions very quickly. We will definitely be using their services again!

Jameson's first time with Joanne and Paul, and came highly recommended ! Pictures everyday and he did great ! We were out of country and had such a piece of mind knowing he was being so well cared for and loved on. THANKYOU !
We drive our boy an hour each way just so we can have the peace of mind of knowing he's with Paul and Joanne. So worth it!!
As was the last visit Edward had a blast!!! He is much more calm in the house so we have heard and that made me feel so proud of him! He is always well taken care of and we are so thankful that he is in good hands and gets the activity he needs while he is there! we look forward to booking another stay at The Happy Husky Haven! Thank you!

These are the kindest, most conscientious people around. I feel so lucky that they take care of my dog.
Joanne and Paul once again has given Nero plenty of love and the best care anyone could ask for. He is always very excited to see them every time he visits. It feels so satisfying to have someone treat your dog as their own.
It was everything we had hoped and more! Paul and Joanne are just lovely. We feel completely at ease knowing our dog is staying in such a caring environment.
This was his fourth visit and we couldn't have been more pleased. He will be back at the end of September.
Second time my dog has been cared of by jo anne and paul. Loved every second of my vacation knowing my dog was being Loved and Played in safe environment! Photos always brightened my day and reassured my dog was having a ball ! You need to book fast cause jo anne and paul are very popular !

Another great stay! Paul and Joanne always make sure that our pup is well cared for and feels at home... makes getaways for any furry parent truly stress-free!
I couldn't have asked for a better experience. We received photos and Ruby looked extremely happy. Paul and Joanne are very nice and we look forward to have them watch Ruby again.
Paul and Joanne are the best! I would only use the best and that's why Nero goes there. He is always treated like one of the family. When I pick him up it looks like he wants to stay. It is a great feeling to know he is cared for while on vacation.
This was out first time meeting and using Joanne & Paul to watch our pup - who really is a child to us!! Joanne is extremely professional yet accommodating - and SHE KNOW DOGS!! she knows how to arrange a first meet, what signs to look for, how to handle disagreements (not fights! anyone who really knows dogs, knows what I mean). She is the alpha and the dogs respond to this in a very positive/ receptive way... it is her commanding, sure, but gentle way that makes us so comfortable in trusting her with our pup. We have used other sitters and that technique is rare - few understand 'dog behavior' and board just for the 'company' of dogs. That can be very dangerous - Joanne sets boundaries with a knowing way and the dogs are HAPPY and know they are SAFE as a result. And she does so with love. We were and still are extremely impressed by Joanne & Paul!!! Highly Recommend!!! We are repeat regulars now.

Another last minute booking that Joanne & Paul went out their way to accommodate us! Even when our flight came in late - went from morning to NIGHT... and they took the time from THEIR busy lives and schedules to make sure we got to see our baby as soon as we landed. Amazing People!! So Lucky to have them in our and our pup's life!!! Thank you!
Read More...
Joanne & Paul could not be more amazing people!!! My wife and I got stuck overseas and literally stranded in an airport, when I was able to use the airport wifi to send a quick message to them - explaining that we would not be home to pick up our pup for another full 24 hours, they did not hesitate... "no problem", "no worries" they said. WOW. people like Joanne & Paul are rare in this world, and you can really count on and TRUST this great couple to care for your baby as their own!
Read More...
Another happy vacation for all of us and our dog Cooper had plenty of exercise and playtime while we were away. He came home relaxed and so did we, knowing he was in good hands while we were away!
My dog Shea is like another baby to us and Paul and Joanne treat her the same way! I was nervous about leaving her for the first time because she is a nervous, shy pup at times. But she had a great time and I got pictures to prove it every other day! Everything was perfect and I would not hesitate to have her stay with them again. Five stars!
Read More...
We are always happy with the care we know our dog is getting at Husky Haven!! Joanne is always checking in and asking questions and giving me feedback on Grady's stay. She is caring and thorough which is why we keep coming back!!
We cannot say enough good things about Joanne and Paul. Our dog, Fuu, stayed with them for about a week and the process was amazing. Like many people, our dog is basically our child. This was our first time leaving her alone and we were anxious. After visiting four hosts, we decided on Joanne and Paul. It was the perfect decision. We received lots of photographs and even a video of Fuu while we were gone (it looked like she had a better time than us!). When we came back she was happy, healthy, and well taken care of. I would highly recommend Joanne and Paul to anyone. We will definitely be return visitors.

Another great vacay for Scruffie!!!
Jake always comes home happy and tired from Paul and Joanne's. He loves playing in her huge well kept yard. I always feel content that he is safe. Thanks for another great stay.
Amazing as always. Can't say enough good things about Joanne and Paul!
Tucker had a great stay with Joanne. He came home happy & healthy. We received multiple photos of him throughout the week -- much appreciated. I wouldn't hesitate leaving him in this dog-friendly home again. Thanks!!
We recently left our dog with Joanne while we were on vacation. What an awesome host!! Oreo really enjoyed her stay. Joanne sent frequent photos via email and we could also check in on her FB page. She made Oreo feel right at home and took excellent care of her! Oreo even hesitated a little when I went to pick her up...I think she wanted to stay :) No question that I would use Joanne again...thanks again for taking care of our Oreo!!

The best!
As 1st time dog boarding, we really appreciated the picture updates on how well our dog was enjoying his stay with Joanne & Paul. Will be scheduling sooner next time, appreciate the short notice granted. Highly recommend.
Edward had a great time at Joanne's home. Edward made a lot of new friends and when we came to pick him up today he didn't want to leave. Joanne was very informative and shared a lot of her knowledge and experience with us! We really had our hearts set at the meet and greet with Joanne's dog Frank (He is a sweetheart). Edward was just as we left him except for being so tired which is great for us because we knew he had a great time! We will surely be back for future vacations! Thank you!

As always, Joanne is wonderful with our dog -- he is always so happy when he comes home. We love Joanne!
Buck had a good vacay with Joanne. He seemed happy in the pictures she sent me during his stay. I give Joanne 5 stars! Thank you, Joanne
Great, as always
Same as in the past THE BEST. Nero loves it there. I guess it helps he is spoiled by them every time he goes there.
Joanne & Paul are incredibly warm, loving, and flexible. They kept Tiki while we moved from our house & even gave him a farewell blanket. We'll miss them!!!
Lester enjoyed himself immensely. I wouldn't hesitate to leave him with Joanne again .
Another great stay. All I can say is the best !!!!
Simply the best!! I would use no one Else ! She treats our guy like her own. I feel so lucky to have found her
Another great vacay for Scruffie. It's so nice to be able to leave him with Joanne and Paul and know that he will be treated like one of their own. The pictures are an added reassurance that he is having a great time playing with his pals. We couldn't be happier with loving & caring environment Joanne and Paul provide for our dog. Thank you both for everything!
Read More...
I've used her services before and she's always so accommodating. Will keep going back!!
As always, Joanne and Paul are simply the best. Every time we leave our "kids" with them we just can't believe our luck at having found these amazing people! I think they might like it better there than at home :)
We had a great time on our church retreat knowing that Cooper was being well taken care of and having as much fun as we were - he loves visiting his doggy friends and playing at Joanne's house where they treat him like one of the family.
Wonderful, as always! We drive almost an hour each way to drop off and pick up our dog from Joanne's, which should tell you everything you need to know. We wouldn't want to leave him with anyone else!!
Joanne & Paul are marvelous: Tiki's 2nd parents. Their love & care are obvious.
my pup learned to socialize and Joanne helped me put him on new feeding schedule with ease.
loved the daily pics !
Thank goodness we found Joanne!! Our sweet old girl Lucy hates the kennel, and we don't like putting her there. Our friend who usually watches her was unavailable so we looked to dogvacay.com. Lucy spent over a week there and she was so well cared for and loved! We got pictures of here almost every day. We will definitely be using Joanne again and are so grateful to her for taking such good care of our pup.

Betsy had a WONDERFUL time staying with Joanne, Paul, Frankie, and the other visiting dogs!!! She played in the backyard, warmed up at the fireplace, and was kept so busy with her buddies, that she didn't miss us so much. We took off for our vacation without having any worries or concerns, because we left Betsy with such a SUPER sitter!!!

Jerry had a great stay, evidenced in the wonderful pictures sent during his stay. Joanne is always wonderful to Jerry and to his human parents!
Joanne and her husband and her home are wonderful. They are so kind to my dog, who is older. I could tell he was happy as a clam and I felt happy knowing that while I was away. Thank you Joanne!
Joanne took very good care of Max. He came back to me healthy, happy, and in great shape. He never missed a beat. With playmates to entertain and exercise with, he may have had a better vacation than me! A great petsitter brings peace of mind when you have to travel or vacation.

Another great visit for Nero!! He's always taken care of like he's part of the family. I never worry when he's with them and would never want to take him anywhere else. Thank you. Your the best !!!!
My husband and I joke that our dog would rather live with Joanne, Paul and Frankie full-time than us (just tells you how much we think he loves his visits)!
Another outstanding "vacay" for Scruffie. Joanne and Paul have a special way with dogs. Our dog can be somewhat shy and withdrawn around other dogs; however, with each set of photos Joanne and Paul sent we could see he was coming further and further out of his shell. Only a few days into his stay our dog was in the middle of the action fully engaged with the other dogs and running right alongside of them. It was an unbelievable sight for my wife and I. We were so amazed. Thanks again for taking such excellent care of Scruffie! You both are incredible!

Another great experience for Maddi at Joanne's. Maddi came home happy and I could see from the photos Joanne sent that Maddi was having a great time.
Joanne was great! She seemed to genuinely love dogs and took great care of my husky. She sent pictures everyday to ensure that he was doing just fine. I felt so comfortable knowing that my dog was in good hands and was able to enjoy my vacation without worrying. We will definitely be contacting her for future boarding!

Jerry always has a great vacay with Joanne!
Joanne is the best! Why would you go anywhere else?
As always, Marcy had a great time at Joanne's- snuggling on her furniture and running in her yard! Thanks for taking great care of her and for sending us pictures!!
Baxter had a great time. I'm sure he will be back.
This was the first time we ever left our dog alone with anyone other than family and I have to be honest my wife and I were a little nervous. Our nerves were quickly calmed with the first round of pictures Joanne and Paul sent. We could see that our dog had adjusted nicely and was having a great time. They took such excellent care of our dog. I can't say enough positive things about our experience with Joanne and Paul. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Joanne & Paul took excellent care of our dog Reesie! Our kids loved seeing all the photos of Reesie having a great time on her vacation while we were on our vacation! Thank you Jo & Paul!
Joanne always makes our dog feel at home -- we couldn't be happier with her care!
Another great stay for Nero. He's treated like a part of the family and loves being there. I wouldn't leave him anywhere else.
Marcy had a blast at Joanne and Paul's house! She didn't even notice that we were there to pick her up because she was having too much fun! They go above and beyond to make your pup comfortable...even when thunderstorms hit! Thank you!!
Joanne was great again. She was able to watch Jake with very little notice (change in our plans). I had no worries about him. Will definately use her again
Found Joanne through the website. After a long search through friends and family, I was losing hope. Then I was happy to find her with many positive reviews and repeat customers. And I was reassured from our meet and greet visit. As a first time doggy mom, I was nervous and anxious about sending him off to a stranger. I had last minute cancellations and last minute booking then I had multiple questions and Joanne was very responsive and helpful for my every single craziness. Then on the first day, my 11mo pup followed her right in and joined other dogs with his tail wagging. I pulled out of her drive way and I enjoyed my long weekend. He was there for 6 days and I received photos on time and enjoyed every bit of it. She was very understanding and flexible. All in all, my dog was clean and happy when I got him back !

We couldn’t be happier with the care and personal attention our dog Mandy received while staying at Joanne’s house. It was like a home away from home for her. Mandy is a family member and we missed her, but the photos that were frequently posted on Facebook, and e-mailed, of her playing and resting with the other pups reassured us she was in good hands and having a good time. Joanne’s attention to detail was remarkable and appreciated. Thank you Joanne, we certainly want to have Mandy stay with you again next time we’re away.

Always happy
Joanne took excellent care of our two dogs for a little over a week. When I picked them up, the dogs were very relaxed and seemed like they'd had a very good experience (in fact, one acted like she wanted to stay longer). I appreciated Joanne's obvious knowledge and sensitivity about dog care and her flexibility (I had to pick up the dogs late due to a flight delay and she was very understanding). I highly recommend her.

Jake was fine with Joanne. I appreciated the photos and emails she sent. He was happy to come home and slept a lot..probably because he had been playing with his new friends. We'll use Joanne again. Glad to have found her!
Joanne S. of Happy Husky Haven in Abington, PA was a great host!!! I give her 5 stars for taking care of our Grady while we were away. He actually got so much needed exercise, he looks a little thinner which was an added bonus!! Would recommend her to anyone!

Always pick up a happy dog!
We had a great experience with Joanne!
We received pics not long after we dropped
Off our dog, Nikki. We made sure Joanne knew all
Of Nikki's behavior patterns, food issues and little quirks and she was very understanding.
Joanne's yard and fence was a great size esp
For running around at top speed, as Nikki loves to do. Nikki was good and tired when we brought her home. She was also very flexible with drop off
and pick up. We definitely will leave our Nikki with Joanne again with full confidence that she is well taken care of. Highly recommend!

Roscoe had a fantastic time, confirmed by the numerous photos and updates that Joanne sent. She is very conscientious about the dog's needs and is great to communicate with! We hope to use her again on our next trip.
Shylah had a great time as usual! She is a frequent guest and always comes home happy, relaxed and rested.
I've kept my beloved Australian shepherd, Riley, with Joanne several times now and feel very comfortable leaving him in her care. She's great about sending photos and is pleasant and flexible to deal with. He comes home in good shape--and tired from running with buddies in her big yard! (A good thing!) Thanks for your conscientious care, Joanne! :)

Gator loved his stay! He wants us to take more vacations :)
Great communication, easy to deal with. Our dog Jake is happy to stay with Joanne. She loves dogs and provides you with peace of mind that your dog is safe and happy. Thank you !!!!
Joanne, as always, was the best host. Our dog loves getting out of the city and spending time in the suburbs where he can run around in Joanne's huge yard! When he's finally all tired out, he gets to hang inside with his friend Frankie (Joanne's dog), which he far prefers to spending time in an impersonal kennel. We would never take our dog anywhere else!

I doubt Duke missed me! Joanne sent me lots of pictures of him with his new doggie friends. All went very well. Jenn
Simba had an amazing time , she came home happy and relaxed . I had a great time knowing that Simba is in good hands !! Thank you so much I am sure that we will send her again
Joanne was awesome! I will be using her again.
We love leaving Ajax with Joanne and Paul, as always! Our most favorite part of the experience is knowing Ajax has such a great time being "part of the family," hanging out in their home. Our second favorite part is seeing all of the photos! We are convinced that our dog often has a better time away than we do!

We had a great vacation with no stress worrying about our dog, Cooper, because we knew he was in good hands at Joanne's house with his other doggie playmates. He came home as relaxed as we were.
We were very disappointed when we picked up our 2 year old black lab. Joanne had nothing but negative things to say about our dog and his stay with her. She was well aware that it was his first time staying with other dogs- she said she was surprised that he had so much energy and that he wanted to play with the other dogs all the time. Really? What else would you expect from a 2 year old lab? He is a really great dog- it was so disappointing to here her say so many negative things when we were picking him up. She was not nice and made the pick up very awkward. It is not a place I would want my dog to stay again. If it was so clear to us that she didn't like our dog, we can only wonder how he felt all weekend being there! We also think there were too many dogs there- 5 big dogs is a lot!!!

This is the longest period of time that we have left Jerry and Joanne understood that we needed those pictures and updates! It was clear that Jerry was having a good time and being cared for. He was not sure he wanted to leave and definitely would be happy to return.

Teddy's first visit to Joanne's house. We immediately felt he was in excellent hands. Joanne kept us updated regularly with pictures and emails, so we could see Teddy in the house and napping on one of the many dog beds in the house.

She's well organized, very professional, and she's careful about the dogs she puts together. Plus, I love her pup--the most laid-back Huskie I've ever met.

We will definitely use her services again in the future.

This was Kali's first stay with Joanne. She thoroughly enjoyed her stay and getting to play with the other 'guests'. I enjoyed the daily photos and feeling sure that she was happy while I was away. I won't hesitate to contact Joanne next time I need someone to watch Kali.

Joanne is so welcoming and accommodating. The pictures she sends let us know that Jerry is doing well and having a good time....exactly what we want! He will be back there soon!
Amazing as always - and very accommodating when an unforeseen delay came up (though it won't happen again!). Ajax always comes home happy and well cared for. Thanks, Joanne!
As always, I am hesitant to share how awesome Joanne is for fear that everyone will learn and want to leave their dogs with her! Joanne really is the best, though, and I'm so glad we found her!
As always, Tiki had a great time at Joanne's. He gets along well with the other dogs and feels safe and loved there.
Our dog, Betsy, had such a wonderful 13 days with Joanne, Paul, their dog, Frankie, plus a few additional vacay dogs! We could tell from the many pictures sent, that she got along fine, got plenty of exercise and play time with the dogs in the backyard, as well as attention during the rest periods in the house. Joanne is so warm, caring, and experienced with dogs. I knew I found a super vacay spot for Betsy, and I know she'll be happy when I take her back for her next visit. Thanks again to Joanne for the great care!

Joanne sent me a lot of photos of my dogs on vacay! They looked at ease and very comfy snuggling with new doggy friends! Jenn (and Duke & Duchess)
My dog had a great time and returned home happy and healthy. Even with the major storm and losing power, Joanne was well prepared and our dog was in great hands. Would use again without hesitation.
Joanne is just the best doggie host we could have found! We have used her twice and feel very comfortable using her again. We are glad to have found her because our "Baby" can be handful and he's no problem for her. Thanks Joanne for a job well done.
Read More...
Awesome, as always! Our dog loves hanging out in a friendly home with big yard and warm fire - definitely better than the impersonal kennel!
It never ceases to amaze me that our dog gets along with some many other dogs at Joanne's. Our dog is a little nervous so I doubted she would fit in a house situation but it worked out beyond anything I could have expected. Whenever she stays there she seems to find one dog that she especailly bonds with. Joanne sends us pictures which assures us she is relaxed and doing well.

I just hope our dog continues to fit in with her group home. It's so nice to be able to have our dog in a real home as opposed to kennel - bob

Joanne is reliable and conscientious, and I feel very comfortable leaving my Australian shepherd Riley with her. She has now kept him for two week-long stints while I was out of the country. She sent photos regularly, and I rested easy knowing he was in good hands. Thanks so much, Joanne!

I was very concerned having never left my dog with anyone before. We did a meet & greet and Lucky spent a night with Joanne before we left on our vacation. It was an excellent experience. He usually sleeps on our bed & that is what he did with Joanne. He came home happy & lively. I cannot say enough about how caring & concerned Joanne was. She was very reassuring with us before we left. I highly recommend Joanne`s home away from home for your special dog.

Maddi had another great vacation with Joanne, Paul and Frankie. We loved getting photos from Joanne. Maddi can't wait to go back to the Husky Haven this Spring on our next vacation.
The best of the best!
I'm not sure how many vacations this is for Shylah but it's at least 5 or 6 by now. this was the longest stay Shylah has had with Joanne and her husband Paul. It's stressful being without your dog for the holidays but the next best thing in my opinion is having Joanne watch her! The daily picture updates are great. Joanne took especially good care of Shylah this time as she is starting to show signs of aging and arthritis. It's a great relief to know that Joanne and Paul are there to take such good care of their guests.
Read More...
This was a quick visit for Shylah being only one night. Joanne and her husband Paul gave her just as much attention as usual though. Great to know they are available just the same for long stays or short ones.
We are repeat customers and had another great experience with Joanne. Our dog just loves spending vacation time there!
we are so glad we found her! we used to take our greyhound to a kennel whenever mt husband and i need to travel but we are seeing a different behaviour with our dog when she comes home from the kennel so we said its time to change kennel and then we discovered dogvacay.

the next challenge was to find a suitable host. we want someone who are very good at handling multiple dogs at a time and are really passionate about caring for dogs. then we saw joannes profile and was impressed at how many dog owners were raving about her and so we chose her and we're very glad we did!

our dog is nervous around other dogs and we are surprised how joanne and her husband was able to handle that and helped her socialize. we also LOVE it when joanne sends us photos to see how our dog has been doing and how our dog behaves around other dogs. a big yard where dogs can just walk around and a house open for dogs to explore is really nice too. makes our dog feel more at home.

we highly recommend her.

Even though Joanne was about to leave for the shore, she accommodated our emergency needs by allowing Tiki to stay one more night. She and Paul act like family, with Tiki's being their baby as well as ours.
I suddenly needed surgery, and Joanne was there to take away the stress of where to put our dog. I knew that I would not need to worry about Tiki: he was in very capable hands.
A whole week! Tiki had a ball playing with his old friend Frankie and his new best friend, Buddy. Joanne and her husband Paul make sure all the dogs are happy, safe, and well cared for. Tiki looks forward to being loved at Joanne's home.
Joanne was great -- she and her family really made us feel like Cassie was part of their home for the weekend.
Jerry had a great time and Joann was wonderfully accommodating. Glad to have met her and Jerry will be staying again in the future
Joanne was very patient with Lucky`s nervous parents We were extremely pleased with our first experience leaving Lucky. Joanne sent us pics which was great. Joanne allowed Lucky to have his usual comforts of snuggling & sleeping with her. Her home is dog friendly which js a positive when a pet is away from home..Highly recommend Joanne. Lucky will be going back to stay with Joanne for a week.

As always, we are so thankful that our dog-child was in such great hands! We could not be happier with Joanne!!
Joanne was so good with our boy! I really loved the pics that were sent each day. You can tell she loves dogs and took very good care of Sakima.
I've lost track- this stay was either our dogs' third or fourth with Joanne. As always, I was completely at ease throughout our time away knowing our "kids" were in the best of hands. Love getting pic and email updates. I also just referred Joanne to a good friend for her Golden. We highly recommend her to anyone- just don't book with her when we need her ;-)

I just recently moved to the area and was very concerned about finding someone to watch my boxer while traveling for business. Joanne is great. She has a wealth of experience with all sorts of breeds and was very careful to socialize the dogs a little bit at a time. We couldn't be happier with our choice.
Read More...
We had a wonderful experience with Joanne! She was so friendly to us and kind to our dog. And we really appreciated the daily pictures while we were away. We will definitely return here!
Joanne is the best! She has a huge yard for the dogs to play in (wonderful for my dog who otherwise lives in the concrete jungle of Philly), a porch to relax on, and dog beds to sleep in. She will send you pictures of your dog to confirm that yes, he's having a great time and yes, he is playing nicely with the other dogs. She's also very accommodating about pick-up and drop-off times--I ended up having to pick my dog up at least 3 hours after our initial scheduled time, and she was not the least concerned (so long as you give notice). Joanne is also very communicative so if you have a question or need to get in touch, she'll get back to you right away. I'm so glad I found her!

This was our first experience with a host on dogvacy and we couldn't have been any happier with Joanne. We were headed to Europe for a 2 week vacation and were anxious about who was going to watch our puppy during our leave. However, from the first meet-n-greet to the final pick-up, Joanne and her husband proved to be exceptional hosts - exceeding our expectations. They have a huge, safe, fenced in back yard with plenty of room for running around. We received frequent email updates with lots of cute pictures so we could see how she was doing and keep our minds at ease. We came back to find a happy, healthy dog that was obviously well cared for. We will definitely be using her services again in the future.

Thanks Joanne and Paul!

Joanne was extremely helpful and accommodating. My dog returned home happily exhausted. Joanne has a large yard and safe space for her DogVacay guests. I highly recommend her. I was new to DogVacay and she took the time to answer my questions, meet my dog and me prior to my dog's stay, and made me feel I was leaving my dog in good, capable, and loving hands.

We felt very comfortable leaving our dog Jasper with Joanne while we were away. It takes a special person to open their home to care for your dog in the same way you would, Joanne is one of these people. We know Jasper was cared for and given attention and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the picture updates she sent. We would definitely recommend Joanne and I think Jasper would agree.

Our boxer has now stayed with Joanne twice and he had so much fun both times that he came home and slept for hours. Joanne sent us lots of pictures of him playing in their huge yard and sleeping on their couch with the other dogs. She's great at getting all shapes and sizes of dogs to get along with each other and we would definitely leave him there again. Thanks!!

We have a tiny little Pekingese/Poodle. After our week on vacation, Lola was returned to us happy and healthy. We were very satisfied and no-doubt Lola will be staying with Joanne again. Thanks!
The best as always ... Thank you Joanne!
Bailey had the best time ... much much better than the Kennel. Thank you Joanne!
Joanne & Paul,
Seem to truly love the pets they watch. Very caring animal
lovers. Dixie was well cared for and as a special bonus, we received daily pictures of her with her new playmates.
We believe Dixie enjoyed her vacation as much as we enjoyed ours!!! They are pawsome :)

We can only say good things about Hershey's stay with Joanne and her husband Paul. They were very patient and understanding making Hershey (and us) feel comfortable at all times from the moment we met them. Joanne was very responsive to all our questions. They were extremely flexible in scheduling drop-off and pick-up around our convenience and the pictures they sent us of Hershey everyday were awesome. Usually, Hershey needs a day or two to recover after being boarded at the vet. Staying with Joanne in her home and roaming in her yard, having companionship 24/7, he was his happy self from the moment we picked him up. We would definitely leave him with Joanne and Paul again.

Our puppy, Sheldon, has a lot of energy and Joanne was very good with him. He seemed very comfortable there and loved running around the yard. We especially liked the photos that we received of Sheldon's stay. We would definitely use Joanne again to watch Sheldon.

Our 2 dogs recently had their second stay with Joanne, and we were just as thrilled as the first time (we have already booked our next one!). They spent 4 nights during a heat wave, but I know they were cool and comfortable. Once again, we got lots of photo and email updates. The dogs looked relaxed and happy. We recommend Joanne highly- we are so relieved to have found such a wonderful home away from home for our dogs.

We really enjoyed our vacation due to the peace of mind we had with Joanne watching our dog, Cooper, for us while we were away. Cooper was well taken care of and we appreciated the home-like atmosphere he enjoyed while we were away!
We were a little nervous to leave our little guy Nathan with someone other than family while we were out of the country for 2 weeks. After seeing all the positive reviews we set up a meet and greet with Joanne and immediately felt at ease he was in good hands. We could tell how much she loved and cared for her and the other dogs she was watching. We loved checking our e-mail and getting pictures while we were away - it made it a little bit easier. She and her husband really welcomed Nathan into their family and he even snuggled in their bed with them. I think he felt like he was on vacation too :) I would absolutely recommend Joanne to anyone is looking for someone to watch their dog!

Joanne and her husband were awesome! Our little pup was a bit nervous at first, but as soon as I got the pictures of her palling around with the other dogs and lounging on their couch, I knew she was happy as a clam. Thank you so much!
I felt a little anxious when I left my 7-month-old Australian shepherd puppy, Riley, for the first time in July 2013 for a week-long trip abroad. Joanne helped to put my mind at ease by sending photo updates and messages that let me know my little guy was having a great time, and was safe and sound. I was glad to know that Riley also had a "vacation" in the form of playing with other dogs in Joanne's big yard. When I picked him up, I could tell he felt happy and at home with Joanne and Paul. I plan to call them the next time I need a sitter. Thank you so much, Joanne!

Great home away from home!
Joanne is an unbelievably gracious host. From the first meet and greet until picking up my little man from my vacation, I never felt my dog would be bored. Even while I was out of the country Joanne kept me informed with how he was doing and plenty of pictures to keep me smiling while away. I didnt think it was possible to tired my man out but by the time I got him he was definitely worn out!

Thanks Joanne and we will definitely be visiting you more often!!

Joanne and Frankie were wonderful hosts and made our dog feel right at home. She was flexible with our drop off and pick up time and was incredibly professional. Her home is dog proofed and the yard is just what our dog needed. She even sent us pictures of our dog having a good time! I cannot recommend Joanne enough! Thank you for watching Marcy!

We were extremely pleased.This was Buddy's first time bording and we were concerned about his reaction to other dogs and to other people.Joanne integrated Buddy into the household routine and kept us updated on a regular basis. He fit in well and we will certainly take him back when we go away again. I think he had as good a vacation as we did.

Joanne was very careful as she introduced Koko to the other dogs so Koko wouldn't get overwhelmed. Joanne and her huskie were very welcoming to Koko. Koko had a great time playing with the other dogs, and she was well taken care of. We would definitely recommend this host.

Another great stay with Joanne and family, thank you!!
Cooper had another great visit at Joanne's and got to make some new friends there as well. He was a happy dog when we got him back, although a bit tired out from all the good exercise he got running around with his friends there!
Joanne was great -- Rowdy was in good hands! He seems to have had a great time because he's exhausted! Joanne is very responsive and she also sends a ton of picture updates, which are always nice. We've already asked her to watch Rowdy again!
Joanne is awesome!! My two dogs were happy and relaxed when I picked them up. I got plenty of updates and pics during their vacay. She and her husband are true dog lovers who made sure our babies were safe, comfortable, and well-loved. We highly recommend them and already have plans to use them again.

Joanne is truly the go-to for amazing pet care. Ernie loves going to her home, and takes advantage of her spacious yard, love and hugs.

The emails and photos Joanne sends me daily of Ernie all show him smiling and bouncing around her yard and relaxing in her home.

It gives me great peace-of-mind knowing my dog is in such good hands when he is in Joanne's care!

My two boxers had a blast on their vacation! They both came home very tired and were clearly well taken care of. Joanne sent me a ton of pictures throughout their whole stay and it's clear her and her husband really love dogs. I would definitely send them there again. Thanks Joanne!

Joanne and Paul were so nice and really great with our dog Dexter. The pictures that she sent everyday were very comforting! Dexter seemed right at home hanging out on their deck and their huge back yard. We would definetly recommend her to anyone looking. Thank you again Joanne and Paul for hanging out with our little buddy for a few days!

As always, leaving our rat terrier, Tiki, with Joanne was wonderful. She and her husband Paul are loving,competent dog watchers. Their house has become Tiki's 2nd home.
Joanne and her husband clearly love dogs, and we couldn't have been happier with the care they gave our 10-year-old labradoodle. She chased tennis balls, romped with their dog and another visitor, and came home happy and tuckered out. Highly recommended.

Maddi had a great time at The Husky Haven. Joanne was great and I loved getting the photos of our dog while I was away. I will definitely be using Joanne again and know my dog will be well cared for and treated like family.
Joanne has watched Idan several times and this time it was for 12 days while I was abroad. She sent me lots of photos and kept me updated on how he was doing. She is also great at responding quickly to emails. I loved the photos of my dog cuddling with Frankie, her husky. My dog has always been an "only child" so I've never seen him do that before. Perhaps he enjoyed the canine companionship :) I never worry leaving him at her house, I know he's in good hands and he absolutely loves going there. I only wish we lived closer so he could go over more often. Thank you!

We were very happy with our dog's stay. Spencer is usually nervous away from home. After we've boarded him at other places, he acts out, gets sick when he gets home, or at least comes home with a chin full of drool because he's been a nervous wreck. But after staying at Huskie Haven our dog came home happy, healthy, and with a dry chin!

Shylah is a happy repeat customer! This time she had 3 other dogs to play with which she loved, and Joanne's enormous backyard lets Shylah run around as much as she wants (which is a lot). It's obvious how much Joanne cares about her guest dogs after you spend any amount of time with her. We are moving to a new home soon but will definitely be bringing Shylah back whenever she needs a place to stay. Shylah always comes back pleasantly tired and full of cheer.

As always, Tiki was loved and well taken care of. Tiki immediately ran into Paul & Joanne's arms, almost forgetting about us!
As a new puppy owner, I was anxious about leaving my rat terrier with a stranger, but Joanne quickly allayed my fears. She and her husband Paul were loving, competent, and professional. They sent us pictures twice a day, showing Tiki playing and nuzzling with the other dogs as well as with Joanne and Paul. Joanne was flexible and accommodating about times for delivery and pick-up. Tiki is looking forward to playing again with their huskie, Frankie.

Joanne was great with marley. He loved being around other dogs and playing. This is so much better then any dog boarding place. Marley had a great yard to run around in and rcvd . the attention he loves. I will use Joanne for any upcoming trips in the future. She took care of all Marleys needs

We are repeat customers and we cannot imagine Jozy staying anywhere else. She is extremely well cared for and is genuinely happy when she gets to go visit Joanne and her big boy Frank.
Our dog Jake was well taken care of and I knew he was safe. He had a great yard to play in and people to love him. I'm very happy with my choice to have my dog Jake stay with Joann and her husband. Awesome!
We just got back from a weekend away after using Joanne for the first time. Joanne was very responsive with emails and phone calls. She and her husband are so sweet and caring and very knowledgable about dogs and dog behavior. We felt very comfortable leaving our two dogs with them and their adorable dog. They have a great fenced back yard, and our dogs were free to sleep wherever they were comfortable. We highly recommend Joanne and would definitely use her again.

Another fantastic stay with Joanne & family! This time it was just for the day, but Idan had a great time, I got lots of pictures and he came home nice and tired from a day full of play and petting. Thanks so much!
Shylah had an excellent time with Joanne and Frankie. She stayed over a week this time. Shylah came home well-rested but clearly having had a lot of exercise and fun. Joanne is as good of a dog sitter as I could possible hope for!
Joanne took excellent care of Cooper and we were able to relax and have fun while we were away knowing he was in good hands!
Joanne is terrific. She really watches out for the well-being of our senior boxer and he comes home very relaxed and happy.
Joanne was very informative and openly caring. My senior boxer felt comfortable in her home immediately and his pictures show that all his needs were taken care of. We look forward to his next visit!
Joanne is very friendly and my dog Cooper loves playing with her dog Frankie when he's there. They treat my dog like he is one of the family and his tail wags a mile a minute as soon as he sees them when I drop him off!
Another great stay with Joanne & family! Again I received daily pictures and updates and came home to a happy, tired pup. It's great knowing my dog is in a loving home while I am away instead of a kennel. Couldn't be happier, thank you!!
Joanne, her husband, and resident pet Frankie were excellent hosts for my energetic Golden Retriever! I picked them based on reviews and experience, as well as convenient location just off the PA turnpike. Joanne was great about quickly responding to any questions or concerns both prior to booking and during my trip. She also sent me updates and photos while I was away. They have a large, fenced yard with tons of room to play! --Idan found a soccer ball at their house which was his favorite toy all weekend :) And of course he received lots of belly rubs and affection. The best part was after a long weekend my dog came home happy, healthy and exhausted - a sure sign of a good time! I will absolutely use Joanne again in the future and highly recommend her services. Both her and her husband are true dog lovers with lots of knowledge and experience. Thank you!

Stella loves spending time with Frankie and Aunt Joanne! You can see that Joanne cares so much about all the dogs she takes care of, whether big or little. Stella is exhausted from playing and having FUN! She slept like a baby last night, even slept late this morning! She can't wait to go back again.

I'm so glad I picked Joanne to watch my two year old French Bulldog, Utley. He is a sensitive little dog, and in the past has gotten sick after an overnight stay at a kennel. I did not have to worry about that with Utley this time. Utley stayed with Joanne for a week, and came home tired from all his playing, but perfectly healthy and normal. No digestive issues at all, which was a first!

Joanne was very professional and sent daily emails and photos of Utley. He enjoyed playing with Frank along with the other dogs Joanne was watching.

Utley loved Joanne and by the end of the week, followed her wherever she went.

I would definitely use Joanne again and recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter.

Rollie had an AWESOME time with Vacation Mom Joanne, Vacation Dad Paul and Vacation Buddy Frankie. Joanne's The yard is secure and Rollie fell into the new rountine with ease under Joanne's care. Frankie was a great playmate and though Rollie was so happy to see us we think he misses his time with Frankie. We highly recommend Happy Husky Haven and plan to use them again!

Joanne was an excellent host for our dog during our recent vacation. In addition to being a great "dog person", Joanne is also a great business person who listened to my concerns, clearly addressed my questions, and kept up with all the details of our dog's care and our travel plans. I would not hesitate to recommend Joanne's services to other dog owners.

Joanne & Paul were FANTASTIC. We were so fortunate to find them and had a great feeling about them from the moment we met them. Their husky, Frankie, was a gentle, loving companion to our boxer, Ernie. The big, fenced-in yard and adorable, clean home made for a terrific vacation for our dog. Joanne communicated daily with great photos and updates on Ernie's stay. A truly terrific experience. Thanks Joanne & Paul - we'll use your services again for sure!

Cooper had a great time and we enjoyed our weekend having peace of mind that our dog was well cared for and loved, just as if he was at home.
Joanne S was wonderful with Quark. She sent lots of pictures and stayed in touch throughout the vacation. Quark was relaxed and comfortable when we got there to pick her up, which is a first for her. I highly recommend Joanne as your dog's host.
Joanne was extremely responsive and extremely friendly. She took excellent care of our dog. She sent pictures daily which was so great. I would highly recommend her as a dog sitter!
I couldn't imagine there being a better host for my dog Shylah than Joanne. She truly cared for my dog as much as I do, and sent me lots of photos every day that showed me how much Shylah liked staying there. I don't think I could ever bring myself to let Shylah stay at a kennel in the future if Joanne is available to watch her. You will not regret having you dog stay with Joanne!

Frankie, their play mate, and Aunt Joanne are great hosts!! Joanne truly cares about the animals she takes care of. It's a loving environment with a VERY nice outdoor space, fenced in and shaded, for the dogs to go out and play. Frankie is VERY gentle and loves to hang out and cuddle. Will definitely use Happy Husky Haven AGAIN!! Would highly recommend them to anyone, they are fabulous hosts! Corrina misses Frankie already. XOXO Corrina

Stella had an amazing time with Joanne and Frankie! She came home exhausted from playing and having so much fun that she slept all afternoon. They were so nice to my baby, even letting her sleep in bed. Loved seeing the many pictures of her new family! Couldn't have found anyone better to take care of my baby!

I've already recommended her to my sister and my niece and their dog. Getting ready to book a return stay in 2 weeks.

Thanks again!!
Love,
Stella
