About Joy

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi to all! I'm married and have three very active boys. I'm wanting to do this because it will be a way for me to be home with my boys. My babysitter will no longer be watching my kids, so I'm looking to work from home for fun. I love dogs and always have. When my boys were little we had taken in my cousin's dog, which was a puppy at the time for a while and it was a great experience for all of us. She was a beautiful dog who was very active and always ready to play. I took her outside when she needed to use the bathroom, gave her baths, fed her, took her on walks, made sure she knew her boundaries, taught her not to beg for our food and taught tricks.

My home is a very cozy, warm, loving, one with a family that loves to give hugs, kisses, rub bellies for your dog, and have playtime as well. I'll have to say our backyard is a great feature even though we don't have a fence, we have a dog run. If your dog knows its boundaries without a fence, we have a lot of room to run. Typically, my days vary from not so busy to being busy. I like to workout by running or walking outside for thirty mins to an hour. My boys and I would go outside play soccer, play tag, go to the park, take walks at the bike run and etc. Your dog typically will be getting a lot of attention from my boys. They love dogs so much that they want one. We don't have one right of our own, but a lot of our friends and family does. Your dog will get a lot of attention from me and my boys, from getting their bellies rub, giving them treats, taking outside for exercise and etc.

Please give me a chance to take care of your dog, you'll never regret it. Your dog will have a great experience with me and my family because we will treat it as if its a part of our family. Plus, we have neighbor dogs that they can play with as well.
Thank your for time.

I was so nervous to leave my rambunctious, goofy, one-year-old lab mix for the first time. Joy put all my worries as ease. She sent pictures of George every day and let me know how she was doing. Then my flight got cancelled and I had to extend my trip by one more day. It was no problem for Joy.

When I got home, George was excited to see me but she also kept running inside the house to see Joy's boys. I know she had a great time, and I'm so grateful!

Thank you so much to Joy and her whole family. George will see you again!
Joy and her family love dogs and treat them as such. During the stay she regularly texts and sends photos so you know how your pet is doing. I strongly recommend Joy.
Joy has been very helpful taking our Duncan in for the day and also overnight. She's also sent us pics letting us know that Duncs was doing good. We are repeat customers and will continue to be.
An excellent stay, our dogs were well cared for and had a great time!
Reese had the pleasure of staying with Joy and family for a full week, he enjoyed himself. Lots of exercise and love for my little pup.
Joy and her husband were responsive to my needs, were great with my dog and took him out to a family outing to a local baseball game. Paulie was happy to see me when I picked him up, but also missed leaving Joy and her family. Joy also gave me regular updates and pictures through Paulie's stay. I will most definitely use them again.
King had a great stay with Joy and her family. Already booked another visit!
Joy and her family waa absolutely amazing with my baby Gizmo. This was the first time I had to board him and was a little nervous, but upon meeting them all nervousness left!! I recommend to anyone in need of a wonderful boarder!!
Joy was a joy to work with lol! Kona seemed really happy when I picked him up and her kids were sad to see him go, which was really cute. I definitely trust her watching Kona (and I'm very picky) but she was an excellent host, highly recommended!
I felt really comfortable with Joy at our Meet & Greet. Mia liked Joy and her son immediately.
I received pics of Mia daily with comments which was really appreciated. Will definitely call Joy again for pet sitting ..... also very, very reasonable rate. Just an all around great experience !!
My MoeJoe had a wonderful time with Joy and her family! I received pictures every day of him enjoying himself with them. Will definitely be using her in the future!
Awesome Family was worried when I dropped my dog off. but they squashed that. spoiled and treated my dog like family took great excellent care of her. I would recommend them anytime. hope they are available in the future. did not hesitate watching her an extra day also THANKS AGAIN Also kept me updated with pictures(.I have boarded my dogs at kennels in the pass hate them thanks to dogvacay no more.)
Great stay. My two large boxers were very comfy, and Joy took time to send the pics to prove it. I would use her again in the future, and reccomend her wholeheartedly!
Joy and her family really took well to Daphne and it looked like Daphne had a fun time during her stay. I would recommend Joy, as well use her again in the future.
Great great family. My puppy love there to play with her boys. Great yard for dog to run and burn some energy. Nice and friendly hosts. Highly recommend!
Joy and her family did a wonderful job watching over Brandi while I was away for the weekend. I enjoyed getting updates and pictures texted to me- it reassured me that my puppy was in loving caring hands! When I picked her up she was all smiles and even a bit worn out. An awesome experience for the puppy and one which will definitely be repeated! Thank you for taking such good care of Brandi!
Joy and her family are fantastic! From the moment I met her I knew my fur babies were in good hands. She sent me tons of pics of my babies. They were either being loved on, played with, or completely relaxed (napping) on the couch. They were also walked many times which my dogs loved. Each of my dogs have a distinct personality that seemed to match up with each of her boys. I will continue to use Joy for many more vacays to come!
