JOY Dogs

Serving the Educational Sector since 2011


It is our mission to educate learners about responsible pet ownership and safety around dogs. We believe the best way to achieve this goal is to teach children from young so that they grow up to be responsible pet owners.

We then responded to a need of visiting institutions for the therapeutic and caring aspect that the dogs bring. We visit physically and mentally challenged people in institutions and aged facilities.This is now our primary focus.

Wellness Division

By popular demand we started the wellness division of the JOY dogs in the second half of 2013. The JOY Dogs will now come to your business to entertain your staff leaving them feeling much more motivated.
