About Joni

I'm a huge dog lover and miss having a dog. This is a great way to spend sometime with a furry friend!

I will give your pet the love and attention it needs while you are away!

I previously owned a dog walking company in FiDi and sold it a few years ago. I miss having some furry friends to hang out.

Currently, I am moving from the UES and until I complete my search for my new apartment I will only be available for in home care.

I have experience with all breeds and personalities.

I am happy to maintain your dog's normal walking schedule and will provide as many walks and potty breaks as they need. Happy to accommodate any special requests.

Nightly rate includes a full 24 hours of care.

Please message me with any questions or requests.

Joni is a wonderful host! My dog Maxx loves her and is thrilled to see her when we arrive. I never have any concerns about Maxx when he is in Joni's care. Always responsive to communication.
Joni did an excellent job with 9yr old yorkie. Mary came home happy and tired! She slept well through the night. Joni is definitely my go-to dog sitter!
Joni took wonderful care of our dog Lion. She was friendly, flexible and responsive. We know he got plenty of attention and exercise because he needed a long nap when he got home!
We left our 5 y/o yorkie, Chase with Joni this past weekend. This is the first time we have left him with someone and we couldn't have been more happy with the decision to have him stay with Joni.

Joni did such a great job making us feel relaxed and comfortable - sending us updates and pictures frequently.

Chase can have a bit of a difficult personality as he doesn't love everyone and doesn't get along with other dogs. Joni did a beyond wonderful job with Chase. She has a fabulous apartment with a private fenced in outdoor space perfect for Chase. Oh, and she even clipped his nails for me while we were out of town! (We discussed before she did it)

We will definitely be asking Joni to watch him again when we go out of town, this was a wonderful experience for both me and Chase.

Thanks again, Joni!
Joni was wonderful with my older little dog. During a very stressful week while I was out of town my bf dropped Rampage off with Joni and picked him up after work. Rampage was happy to see Joni every day. Joni even managed to get Rampage to eat. Very remarkable.

Rampage liked Joni's garden also. She kept me updated and sent me his photo. He will be staying again!

My dog Henry has stayed with Joni a few times now. He has separation anxiety in general but staying at Joni's is the only time he won't freak out too much. She's great with him! Highly recommend!
I do not leave Cookie very often, but I had such peace of mind leaving her with Joni. We did a quick meet&greet before the scheduled stay, and she noticed details about her right away - her eyes that need drops - before I even mentioned anything. It also made me happy that she usually works from home, so Cookie had company most of the time.
Simon could not have been more excited when it was time to go stay with Joni. Joni is a very caring and attentive host. She provided regular updates and was super responsive. Plus her backyard is a pup's dream.
We had another great experience with Joni! Our Yorkie Teddy was happy to see her when we dropped him off and was clearly well cared for once again. Look forward to booking with Joni again in the future!
Joni was wonderful! This was my first time using DogVacay and she made the experience effortless. Teddy (my Yorkie) was instantly comfortable with her. She messaged me regularly with updates and pictures. When we picked him up, he was happy and healthy. I would absolutely leave Teddy with Joni again.
This was the second time Joni had watched Tater and just like the first time, we could not have been happier! It's so nice to go out of town and know you have someone to watch your baby who cares as much as you do!

Tater doesn't take easily to strangers, and I swear, I had to pry him away from Joni when it was time to leave. He looooves Joni, and it's easy to see why!

If you're looking for someone who's down to earth, friendly, responsible, warm and caring, then you're in luck with Joni. I just hope she doesn't get too booked up to watch Tater in the future! THANKS, JONI! : )
Joni was so accommodating about drop-off and pick-up times, which was really helpful! Her apartment looks out onto a little garden area, and Diffie LOVED patrolling around out there! She came back and just zonked out for the rest of the day -- always a good sign that she had a great time!
Joni was fantastic! I had the good fortune of meeting her outside her apartment when I was picking up my pup so I was able to see his reaction to her before he even realized I was there. And he was thrilled to see her! That's all I needed to see. I will definitely use her again.
My dog Bailey had a great time staying with Joni. She has a back yard/patio which is great, and Joni made sure Bailey got plenty of exercise and was well behaved.
Joni was great! She had patience with my grumpy little guy and he had a very comfortable stay. She was reliable and made pick-up and drop-off convenient for me.
Joni offered to stay at our place to watch our dog Bailey since her apartment wasn't available for the holidays. We met her beforehand and Bailey liked her right away.
Throughout our week away, Joni was great about texting and sending pictures with details about how Bailey was doing. I always received a quick response with any questions I had. We returned to a spotless apartment and a happy dog! It was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend Joni.
Joni was AMAZING!!! From the very first email to the last day she watched Tater, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Joni has an adorable apartment with her own backyard that Tater just loved to run around and play ball in. Joni was super accommodating with picking up Tater and dropping him off. She never failed to send us plenty of text and email updates and pictures, and Tater was smiling in all of them! Joni truly spoiled Tater even more than I think my husband and I do and we felt completely relaxed knowing he was in Joni's care. She even remembered me telling her that Tater loves carrots as treats and went to the trouble of picking some up for him :)

Even aside from our dog, Joni looked in on our cat, gave him some love, changed the water and litter and gave him his medicine. She was sweet enough to remember he had a scratch on his chin and even texted an update on how well it was healing!

I'm hesitant to even write this review, because I want to keep Joni our little secret! ;) But seriously, I think Tater is actually disappointed to be home with us!

Thanks SO MUCH, Joni!!!
