Joslyn was very flexible on times. She sent both pictures and videos which I greatly appreciated. My sweet girl enjoy the company of her dogs and came home just as happy as she left. Joslyn clearly loves dogs.
Joslyn was fantastic! She was very laid back and flexible. She kept me updated everyday with pictures about how my two babies were getting along with her other doggie guests. My girls were happy and extremely well cared for in her home. I will book with her again! I highly recommend her! Thanks you Joslyn!

Joslyn did a great job! She made us feel comfortable leaving our dog for the first time. She sent us pictures with updates which made us feel even better about leaving her. Would definitely recommend using her for any vacays!
Joslyn was amazing and exceeded our expectations! She sent updates, pictures and videos throughout the day of our puppy playing with her dogs. She is so sweet, quick to respond and was flexible with drop off/pickup times. I will choose Joslyn for future needs and highly recommend her!
Joslyn did an amazing job! We have piece of mind and always feels feel secure when she is taking care of our babies!
Joslyn is absolutely wonderful. She spoiled my Aussie and sent me several updates w pics and videos of him playing. This was my first time away from our new puppy and there is no doubt we will use Joslyn again in the future. You can tell Joslyn has a long history of caring for pets and is a dog lover. Great experience - I will never board at a standard kennel
Joslyn was great! My dog had fun there, she texted me pics and statuses, etc. I would definitely use again!
Joslyn did a great job! --and we especially appreciated how flexible she was with drop off and pick up times.
Joslyn provided exceptional service and we couldn't be more pleased! This is the second time she has taken care of our dogs at our home and she provides a peace of mind that allows us to relax while we are away. We highly recommend!
I just moved to Woodstock and had used a few dog sitters from Dogvacay where we used to live and was always pleased with my sitters. Joslyn now joins my list of great Dogvacay sitters! She answered my questions very quickly and was happy to take my dog a few days after I made my reservation. Great communication. She sent me photos a few hours after I dropped my dog off which always makes me feel good. When I came to pick her up she brought her right out to my car which was also a nice convenience. I will definitely be using Joslyn as my dogs sitter for my future needs.
Wonderful host! We left our two dogs with her while they were quite young and you can tell they absolutely loved it! We were more anxious about giving them away than they were when Joslyn was holding them lol
Joslyn was terrific and Zelda loved her! Highly recommend her!
My wife and I (and our dogs) love Joslyn. Our pups come home happy, healthy, and exhausted every time. I trust her to handle some unique needs our dogs have completely and very much appreciate her flexibility.
We asked Joslyn to stay at our house to care for our two dogs and two cats for three days, then to take our two dogs to her house for the next two days, since she works from her home. She was to spend the night at our house all 4 nights, leaving late on the fifth night, since we would be coming in on a late flight that evening. She decided that she would leave the dogs at our house on those last two days. When we opened the front door, the smell of urine was strong. The dogs had left about 6 piles of feces on the master bedroom carpet. We discovered about 6 wet spots on the expensive den carpet, which necessitated a cleaning bill of $180. I picked up 12 feces in the backyard the next day. Our dogs had been housebroken about three months prior to this, and have not had an accident since. We can only assume that Joslyn is good as a pet sitter in her own home, but we cannot recommend her pet sitting in your home.
Joslyn is great! Our dogs always come home happy and healthy!
Joselyn was great! She clearly loves dogs and cares a great deal for hersl. Riley came home happy, healthy and tired! Exactly what you want from a doggie vacay.
Joslyn was great! Lilly was in good hands and we all felt comfortable from the very beginning. Joslyn even made some special "doggie chicken soup", which Lilly loved and she is a picky eater. We will definitely ask for Joslyn's help again and I recommend her to anyone who wants an excellent dog sitter. Thank you, Joslyn!!
Joslyn was wonderful. Our puppy had his first time out at daycare and she made sure it was perfect. He had playtime, as well as breaks when he needed it, and she sent me photos and kept me updated with texts. He had a great time and I knew he was in super hands.
I have two little dogs, one is a bit special needs at the moment. No complaints! I'm sure they had a great time while I was away for a few days.
Great stay with Joslyn!
She is great!
Another great stay with Joslyn!
Joslyn was a great host for Sam. He seemed very happy and fit when we picked him up and Joslyn did a great job of keeping in touch and letting us know Sam was doing well. We will definitely use her again and have already recommended her to our neighbors.
Joslyn is so great with our dog! This was her 4th stay with Joslyn, and she always has such a good time! It's just like being at home for her. Highly recommended!
Joslyn is always great with Bella! She even met me somewhere closer to me so I could catch my flight on time! Definitely bringing Bella back to her =)
What a great host Joslyn is! Henry got lots of attention, and I got tips on better chew toys and how to cure Henry's itch!
Joslyn is a caring person. She took care of my dog very well
Another great dogvacay experience with Joslyn. This time, Molly came home with a bag of peanut butter cookies courtesy of a baking session with Joslyn. Molly is lovin' it!
Joslyn was amazing! Major had such a great time there. She sent me photos daily and updates to reassure me he fit right in :) Definitely will be using Joslyn again!!!
At 10 days, this is the longest time we have left our sweet pup with anyone. We felt very comfortable knowing that Molly was in good hands with Joslyn, her daughter, and her two pups.
Perfectly problem-free stay for our elderly Golden Retriever. We have another upcoming trip out of town, and will be leaving her with Joslyn again.
I was very impressed with Joslyn's flexibility, responsiveness, easy-going nature and 'dog-smarts.' She made our dog feel right at home, and he came home relaxed, healthy and happy! What a relief to know Josyln is there when Bogey needs a DogVacay.
This was a great experience for me and my dog.
Noel, usually so crazy to see me, did not want to leave Joslyn's! And what a week she had: long walk, lots of one-on-one attention (Joslyn works from home), etc. Noel had even forgotten everything she had learned about being housetrained, but Joslyn got her retrained in seven days w/ absolutely no problem. Joslyn also reintroduced her to having some structure in her life, something she sorely needed.

When I went to pick her up, she did run to me but kept looking at Joslyn as she (Noel) and I walked to my car. She didn't want to leave her and barked at her to come with us. So, I had brought to Joslyn a basically untrained dog, and what I got back was a perfectly house-trained Noel. I've never seen her reluctant to leave someone before, and she's been boarded a lot, so she had to have been spoiled, and she was. The pictures Joslyn sent me of Noel hanging out on the couch, eating upside down, napping w/ her head on Joslyn's nap, all were priceless and ones I will keep forever. Thank you, Joslyn!
OMG, if you are looking for a DogVacay host, you would be so fortunate to select Joslyn G. My lab, Noel, stayed with her and absolutely did NOT want to leave. Usually, Noel is beside herself to see me and to go on a car trip, but when she realized we were leaving Joslyn's, back she ran into Joslyn's home! I was flabbergasted!

Her home is spotless and in a perfect neighborhood for long, serene, uninterrupted dog walks. She's been a dog lover her entire life, and you can tell as soon as you meet her. Just ask Noel: she did NOT want to leave the heaven on earth that she found at Joslyn's!
I've never used DogVacay before and I was a little nervous about leaving Baxter with a stranger, but Joslyn took great care of him and he loved it! She sent updates and pictures every day, which I loved. Thank you, Joslyn!!
