About Joan

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I are retired grandparents of nine grand-kids and two great grand-babies, and loving pet parents of Marlon, our 6 year old miniature poodle and one senior cat Dasey. We have temporary custody of my daughter's dog Pepper a Mini Schnauzer and two grandkids ages 11 & 9 who love all the dogs that come for a visit. We live in a smoke-free home with central heat and A/C. Fenced, shady, medium size back yard. Your little furry one will have access to playing and going out as often as he/she likes. If he/she requires, we are experienced in dispensing meds. We also love the seniors and babies that require extra attention. We love animals and kids and care for their safety as well as enjoyment. We are home most all the time except for church on Sunday morning & eve & Tues eve, and and some family visits. Would love to share our love for animals with your family pet member. Would prefer small-medium less than 30 lbs ( Weight can be due to chubbiness) dogs that get along with other dogs, cats, kids & others well. Looking forward to a meet & greet with other loving pet parents & your pet kids.

I was very pleased with how well Oliver did on his first stay with Joan and Don. Oliver loves being with kids and dogs and they all got along. Will definitely have them care for Oliver again. Also, watching TV with Don, was something he really misses with my husband.
Joan and her family are great dog sitters. Ginger has a great time when she is at Joan's home. They take great care of her. I always feel comfortable leaving Ginger with Joan for the day.
Joan and her husband are very welcoming and friendly people not only to me but to my dog as well. They have a well fenced yard which is great for the dogs to enjoy the outdoors and have a run. I loved the photos they sent me and their grandson was enjoying spending time with the dogs over the Christmas period. I will book her again when we need a dog sitter.
Lovely family, I felt very comfortable leaving my older shih tzu with her. Will definitely use her again
Joan, Don and Marlon are the best sitters! Bailey and Willow our cocker puppies have visited them several times but not at the same time. Our puppies are spoiled, nervous, high energy and demanding! If you want your pet to be taken care of, loved, protected and treated as if they're in your own personal care, Joan is the one to call. You would not have any worries while leaving your pet with Joan and Don. Put your mind and heart at ease and give her services a try! You won't regret it.
Joan did a great job with Ares and Tara. She provided frequent updates and pics and it was obvious that they had a good time. I will definitely be leaving them with her again!
Doggies always love going to Joans. Well taken care of and come back exhausted so I know they ran around and enjoyed it. Great Dog Vacay experience.
Joan did great with Zak. Zak enjoyed his vacay and we would do it again.
We had a visit with Joan ahead of time and it went well. Very loving family. Lance seemed to love staying there. She sent progress reports and pictures. We felt uncomfortable about leaving him since he is with us 24hrs. a day. Lance is a 10yr. old French Bulldog and thinks he is a person. But Lance seemed to be happy with them. He didn't want to leave when we came to pick him up. Would feel good about leaving him again.
Joan and her family were great. We needed someone to watch our pup, Snoopy, for a few hours. We were travelling to OKC from Houston and were stopping in Fort Worth for a football game. Joan quickly responded to my initial messages and even looked up the distance from her home to the stadium for me. When I arrived she was very friendly and welcoming. My pup is a little shy at first but he warmed up well and seems to have had a great time playing with the other dogs. Joan also responded pretty quickly to my message checking on Snoopy while he was there. We would definitely book with Joan again if we need a sitter in Ft. Worth.
Joan took our reservation on short notice. Foo Foo seemed to enjoy her stay. Foo Foo has poor eyesight and is hard of hearing, but Joan graciously welcomed her. If we ever need services again, I will be a return customer.
Sutton had a wonderful time again! We don't worry about him for a second when he's with Joan!
Joan is a life saver! We were in town for a funeral and needed a place to board Tess. Joan opened her comfortable home to us and accepted our request/reservation immediately. Their home is warm and safe and we knew immediately that Tess would be cared for as if she belonged to Joan.
This was our first experience with Dogvacay but I am sure that when we need boarding in the future we will rely on Joan.
Joan and her husband were lifesavers! We were traveling to Ft. Worth for a football game, and we found out last minute we did not have a sitter. We had never used Dogvacay and have left our little guy with very few people. Joan was so wonderful with him and put my mind at ease right away! We will definitely use Joan again when we are in town again!
Bailey had 3 daily visits and 1 overnight visit. I was a little worried about an overnight since Bailey can be demanding but Joan said he was fine. Joan’s place was a perfect place for a stay over. Next we will ask her to host all three of our puppies while we go on vacation. It was great to have the flexible pick up and drop off time
Joan, her husband and Marlon were amazing with our pup Bailey. Bailey has anxiety disorder and needed a place away from our house during the roofing replacement. Bailey also needed to be away from our Willow pup who was in heat. Bailey seemed to enjoy his daily vacation and he never complained about the visit. They took such good care of Bailey by treating him just like he was their own. We cannot see ourselves leaving our puppies anywhere else. This was our second time using Joan, once for Willow a 9 month old cocker and Bailey a 3 year old cocker.
Our dogs were very well taken care of and loved being with Joan and family. We will def be using them again and would recommend to anyone in need of a sitter. Thanks again.
Buddy and Cougar LOVED their stay with Joan her husband. They came home pooped from having so much fun. I would definitely use them again!
Good times for my four leggers very wonderful people. Couple of points were not accomplished but overall a good experience.
This was our first stay using DogVacay and wanted a place for our 9 month old Willow to have a caring home away from home. She allowed me to schedule a meet and greet at her home to ease my first time jitters of leaving Willow with someone I was not familiar with. We loved that there was an open line of communication with her. We got updates about Willow and pictures during her stay.
It appeared from the pictures Willow was being in charge and had unlimited access to couch and other places to rest and play. Willow came home more spoiled than anticipated. I'm not sure she heard the word NO like at home. Joan and her husband were beyond great! I would highly recommend Joan to anyone looking for a pet sitter and we will send Willow back anytime!
My Maltese, Hogan, stayed with Joan last week for three nights. I am very protective of my dog but felt very comfortable with Joan and her husband when I went for a meet and greet. When I picked him up he seemed very well cared for. Joan sent a couple of pictures while we were away which I appreciated. Would definitely use them again!
This is a repeat stay. Joan was a gracious host as always.
Polite and friendly couple. Joan and her husband were able to accommodate my schedule on short notice. Very attentive to my dog's needs. Will definitely board my dog with Joan again.
Joan and her husband were a saving grace in my time of need. I needed a sitter at the last minute and she was able to accommodate me. They took great care of my dog Preston and he enjoyed playing with her dog. I would use them again!
Joan and her husband were wonderful to our dogs and very accommodating. She was very sweet. Will use them again for sure!
