I love the Doggies. I have lots of time to spend with your pet and have all the comforts of home. Have lots of experience with sitting and walking!!!! I like to take them to the park or for long walks. Or, whatever you as the owner would like me to include. I have some great local references too that you can ask for!

Excellent experience
My dogs loved their stay with Joann! She was totally awesome with them. She made sure that she slowly introduced my girls to other dogs. She sent me videos and pictures proving to me that my girls were taken care of and very comfortable. She even bathed my dog when she thought she was itchy! I really think my girls were sad to leave her house! Thank you Joann for a great experience!

I LOVED using Laketown Woof (JoAnn) this past week while on vacation in Rosemary. I had never boarded or left my dog with anyone so I was nervous at first but JoAnn quickly calmed my nerves as soon as I met her. She really cares about the dogs and loves them like her own! She updated me every day with pictures and videos. Our dog, Boomer, had a vacation of his own while we were at the beach. I will definitely use her again! Thank you for taking care of our pup!!!!

Sent lots of updates and pictures while I was away.
Excellent! Recommend Jo Ann as she is excellent! My two Yorkies were in excellent care! Will certainly use her again!!! Thank you so much!
HI, my name is Sailor and I just spent 3 days with Joann. My mom was real sad when she left me as I usually travel with her. After she dropped me off at this fun place my mom received several pictures and videos to show her I was having a great time with Joann and all the other fur babies she was taking care of. It was just like home -- even sleeping on her bed!! My mom got about 4 or five videos a day so she knew I was a happy boy. I hope if she goes away again I can come back and play with Joanne and Gizmo and any others that are around. Woof, woof-- that is thank you for taking such great care of me. ❤️ Sailor

JoAnn was amazing!! We went on vacation and left Piper for the first time. My kiddos were very nervous about leaving her, but the videos that JoAnn sent everyday made them feel much better!! Piper had a great time. I highly recommend JoAnn B at Dog Vacay to anyone!!

Joann was awesome! Our pups were completely comfortable from the get go and we did not hesitate to leave them with her. She made sure she had all the necessary information about them and even took photos for us of their stay. We highly recommend Joann if you are in the PCB area and require a pet sitter.

Katie Belle is a rescue dog that I had only 2 weeks. Joann took great care of her and she came back to me a happy dog. I was not sure that she was going to come to me when I picked her up. We are home and Katie Belle is displaying some very positive improvements from her stay with Joann.

Joann was a gracious host. From the numerous video's and still shots Joann sent during his 2 day stay, Chance, my yellow lab, seemed to enjoy the company of the other dogs. He came home tired which indicates there was a lot going on that he did not want to miss by napping. I am confident he was well taken care of.

Joann was wonderful! She even sent me video updates throughout my pup's stay. I will definitely use her next time I'm in the area. I highly recommend her, couldn't have been any better!
I would highly recommend JoAnn! This was our little guy's first time with someone he didn't know and I was worried sick! JoAnn put my mind at ease from day one and even sent pics and videos of Nico. She was honest and carig with how Nico was doing and never made me feel like I was being a pest checking in. You can't go wrong leaving your 4 legged family member with JoAnn! Her patience and love for animals was very evident!! Thanks so much, Joann.

I would highly recommend Joann. She was very easy to work with and most importantly took very good care of my dog Lucy. I really liked that she sent me videos and photos of Lucy throughout her stay--just enough to reassure me that Lucy was doing well.

I was so happy and relieved to have been able to leave my little Yorkie at Joann's . She sent me pics and videos so I knew my doggie was doing fine . So I was able to enjoy a few days knowing he was well cared for. She was also very flexible with drop off and pick up - would highly recommend and I know My Yorkie was loving it there!

When we first arrived we thought Lucy would be the only dog there, She has never been around other dogs, Joann assured us that everything would be fine, My wife was a nervous mess. With in minutes after we left Joann sent us videos of Lucy and the 4 dogs getting along great. I swear Joann is a dog whisper. She sent us daily updates of Lucy.
Joann was a saint, We are soooo glad we did not put Lucy in a kennel. We highly recommend Joann and we hope to be in that area again next year to use her service again.

I could sing Joann's praises all day long! I had never used an in-home care provider for my 8 year old dachshund before this weekend and my only regret is not finding her sooner! In the past, boarding always resulted in a lot of anxiety for me and my little guy Max, until now! Joann kept me updated with lots of photos and videos which eased my mind and showed Max to be having a fabulous time! I will absolutely use her services again!

Fantastic in every way! We were worried when we saw the pictures of our dog having so much fun that he might not want to go home with us!
Joann was really wonderful to our Goldendoodle puppy Brody. Being just 4 months old, this was Brody's first overnight experience anywhere else, and we were apprehensive about how it would go. Joann is such a professional with dogs. It's clear she's been doing this for a long time. We loved the text updates and videos she sent too. Thank you Joann for loving our boy just like we do..!

Joann was awesome! She kept us updated during Lucy's stay with her with videos and pictures. We were able to enjoy a couple of doggy free vacation days knowing that Lucy was having just as much fun as we were.

We will definitely use her for future visits to the area.

Thanks Joann!

My vacation was wonderful but I believe my boy, Paddy, had a better time. Joann is, in one word, awesome. Her special talent is keeping you up to date on my dog"s activities of the day. These pictures and video just simply relieve your stress at leaving your beloved pet with a total stranger.
When I go back to Panama City Beach again I will ask Joann to take care of Paddy.
This' there is' no doubt. I could have left him home in Atlanta with a pet sitter but we had the advantage of a road trip with our dog and having him be close to us while on a holiday. It was the best of both worlds.
So...go to the beach and take your dog to Joann. She loves dogs, even gave Paddy a bath on the last day. Word has it that Paddy actually slept in the bed with the rest of the family. She is special as are her dogs!

Joann was easy to work with and kept me updated with plenty of pics throughout the weekend. She was very thoughtful and wanted to keep my dog's schedule as close to what he was accustomed to as possible which to me shows great individual care for the animals she cares for. I will certainly contact her again when I travel back to this area.

This was my Laidback Luke's first time overnight boarding and Joann made it a wonderful experience for Luke and I. She kept me posted with videos and pictures throughout the day while Luke was in her care. These updates made me feel like I had not left my dog. It was ideal for me to find someone who could take care and love my dog as much as I do. Someone who would make my dog feel like he's at home and continued his routine. Joann is a dream come true!

My dog spent an extended weekend and no doubt will be back to see Joann. She sent me so many pictures and videos and he was always having a good time. He is about as worn out after his vacation as I am. Fantastic experience and would recommend her to any of my friends.

I have used this service in several cities and have had only good experiences. But Joann was, by far the best at keeping me updated, sending photos and sending videos and giving my dog a full experience. I feel as Joey wasn't just being dog sat, he was actually on vacation. It was a great experience and I will not look anywhere else when I need someone to walk, day sit or board Joey again. Thanks Joann.

Joann was awesome! I don't think I could leave my dog with anyone else after our experience. She was so accommodating with our last minute plans and took great care of our puppy . She sent pictures and updates throughout our mini vacation and I felt completely confident that my puppy was in great hands. She was so flexible with our pick-up and drop-off times too! Our puppy was happy and tired out when we picked him up so I know he had a great time. Highly recommend Joann and will without a doubt use her again!

Joann was absolutely wonderful! She accomodated us last minute, sent us constant updates and pictures during our trip and was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. Our puppy came back very happy. She even taught him a new trick! Thanks Joann! Highly highly recommended!! :)
