“Take chances, make opportunities.” - a motto Chrissy Joy has lived by for over a decade. She created this at time when she needed the motivation the most - to pursue long-shot dreams paired with hard work.
Chrissy’s mission is to encourage inspiration and fuel passion through coaching and content creation. She believes that training is just one aspect of your journey with your dog. It is also about you and your dog’s mindset at every training session. By tapping in to your goals and creating a plan with positive-based training methods, you will achieve success and strengthen your bond with your dog.
From equestrian to dog trainer, Chrissy discovered her purpose in life was working with animals and helping others feel empowered with their pets. It started with the adoption of a mixed breed puppy named Beasley and diving in to the world of dog training. After attending classes, she received an opportunity to become a trainer at BFF Pet Services.
As Chrissy's skills for training rapidly developed, she also became passionate about trick training. Not too long after was she revisiting her production and acting background once more and learning how to work her dogs on set for TV and film.
Chrissy has achieved some amazing titles with her dogs, collectively known as The Joy Crew:
2018 National Stunt Dog Champion
2021 International Trick Dog Champion
Two Youngest Titled Champion Trick Dogs in the World.
Chrissy has now built a full-time career that involves working The Joy Crew for film and commercial advertising, live performances, appearances and show host for both television and podcast. Her dogs have appeared in hundreds of print ads, video, films, live appearances, podcasts and many more noteworthy media outlets, including HBO, LIONSGATE, Chewy.com, Paramount, NBC, The Tonight Show, and Bravo to name a few.
Her goals for today are to bring educational, fun, and digestible courses that can help all pet parents feel as though they can achieve higher areas of learning, fun, and connection with their dog. Take a chance by trying something new /$: you may find doors opening to many new opportunities!
