Ms. Jocelyn J. was great! I felt that our pup was part of her family for a week. She provided lots of updates and my dog came back happy and relaxed. I would recommend Ms. Jocelyn.
She was great!
First off. I'm neurotic about my dog. Greyhound.

I'm very happy with Ms Jocelyn and she did a great job keeping me up to date multiple times a day and answering my texts and calls.

She was extremely responsive and understanding.

I will user Ms Jocelyn again.
Jocelyn was great and took good care of our dogs. Our dogs bonded with her and were happy to see her. We would surely keep our dogs with Jocelyn in future. Thanks Jocelyn.
She has an amazing way with dogs and is both knowledgeable and caring.
Jocelyn did an amazing job! She was very communicative, arrived right on time, and took great care of our dog. I couldn't be happier and will call on her again.
Jocelyn was incredible with our dogs. She was very responsive and also very quick to respond to any concerns or conflicts that arose. She gave daily updates and pics of the dogs. She was also very great when it came to helping my dog, Shaina, with an injury she’d gotten right before her stay. Going so far to take her to the vet early in the morning when she noticed something concerning. My family will definitely contact Jocelyn for any trips we have in the future. If only for the ease of mind that our dogs are in excellent hands.

Thank you so much for watching them!
I needed a last minute holiday dog walker and not only was Jocelyn available, but she was fantastic! Patient, prompt and incredibly kind. This was my first time using Dogvacay and admittedly I was a little reluctant but after this, I'm definitely coming back. Thanks, again Jocelyn!
She was excellent. Great dog side manner, she kept me in tune to how my dog was adjusting and supurbe communication . I an defiantly going to use her agin. Not enough stars to rate her. I give her ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.
Jocelyn was flexible, friendly, and made the whole thing easy. I had peace of mind knowing my big girl was staying with her. Thank you!!
After experiencing a few setbacks trying to find a host for our lab, Wrigley, we were so relieved to find out Jocelyn would be able to accommodate us on such short notice. She even came to our neighborhood for the meet and also graciously picked up Wrigley and his things that same afternoon. Without Jocelyn's amazing and helpful spirit we would not have been able to leave on vacation as planned. She literally saved our vacation while giving Wrigley one too! He came home happy and tired, delivered safely again by Jocelyn and her gracious spirit. Thank you for making our first DogVacay experience a success! We will definitely request her services again the next time we go out of town.
