About Joy & Nicholas

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm Joy! I'm 24 and I moved here from France three months ago.

My husband and I love animals, and we've had plenty of pets. In my childhood I raised two dogs, five cats, seven mice, one rabbit, probably three hamsters, multiple fish and it has always been a pleasure for me to take care and share my days with each of them.

Unfortunately, We can't have our own pets right now, so we're happy to have discovered this amazing website and would love to take care of your best friend as if it were ours! I work at home, and your pet will not be left unattended. I can take your pet outside for a walk, play in a park or run on the beach. I also live 5 min walking distance from Griffith Park and would love to have furry friends to hike with me.

Every kind of dog is welcome, I love them all, as well as other animals with the exception of snakes.

You can be sure I will take good care of your pets and provide them with everything they need!

Can't wait for having your friends for holidays in my home!

Joy is new to California and currently works from home so she would love to have some puppy company. She will be able to give full time supervision for your pups while you're away. She also will be able to provide frequent walks around the neighborhood and occasional hikes.
joy was great watching my dogs and was so helpful since i had a last minute cancellation from another sitter (from rover). when my roommate picked up my dogs, he said my doggies didn't want to leave :) definitely recommend her!
I'm so happy with my first dog vacay experience!! Joy was a joy to have watch my two dogs and they came back worn out from their little vacation. I have one very hyper dog and even he was too tired to play when we got home. I also got constant pictures when I was away and Joy was very understanding when I missed my flight and had to leave them with her for one extra day!! She made us feel at ease and I couldn't ask for a better experience! Will definitely be contacting her for my next trip! :)
We're so happy we've found Joy and Nicholas! Our dog, Sam, had a great time. Thank you so much, and see you again soon!! Simon and Kim
Joy was very accommodating even after running into a slight speed bump. Great sitter!
Joy & Nicholas were so good to my 1 year old husky, Stella. My boyfriend and I had to go out of town for 10 days and they did so many activities with her every day. She is a very hyper dog and they took her on hikes, to the park, to pool parties etc. and when I picked Stella up she was exhausted which I know is always a sign that she let out a lot of energy during her stay with them. I received pictures and videos almost every day of their adventures with Stella. I am so relieved we found someone so dependable and loving towards our baby.
Joy did a great job with our dog Skittles!
My husband and I had the best possible experience with Joy while we were on our honeymoon for a week. Joy was super accommodating and made us feel totally comfortable. Not to mention, our little Alfie was returned totally happy, content, and well taken care of! Joy responded right away to my request, and kept me posted on Alfie's status/sent lots of pictures throughout the week. I highly recommend using this sitter!
Joy was a Joy! Always responded quickly with photos of our puppy Scout. We throughly enjoyed our experience with her ♥️
I had my dog stay with Joy for about a week. She was barking constantly at my new place while I was at work. I chose Joy from this site and she was a huge help, giving me the peace of mind that I needed. She has a nice and gentle demeanor. And she is really willing to do her best to accommodate your needs. Plus it really felt great to have chosen someone that your dog is eager and happy to go to in the morning. Really thankful for finding such a person
My very hyper 9-month old Boston Terrier girl was very well-taken care of and even went on a hike in Griffith Park! Joy and Nicholas also dropped her off at my house which was really cool and convenient. My dog really enjoyed her daycare stay and even got to socialize with another pooch while there. I would definitely recommend if you want a good adventure day for your dog!!!
