About Shelly

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I currently offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding)! I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day. I also accept cats.

I love all animals and truly enjoy petsitting.

I have been around dogs all my life. As a child we raised Bassett Hounds. We even had to bottle feed 22 puppies.

I have had everything kind of pet from Hermit Crabs to different kinds of Lizards and Turtles.

I am watching my son's cat Kitkat. She is a rescue from India. She is an inside/outside cat.

I have nursed animals back to health, including a wild duck and a hawk. I have half an acre that is fenced and a dog run.

I have been pet sitting for over a decade.I do not work so I am able to give your dogs all the attention and love they want and need. I am able to administer medication when needed.

I can also watch your cat, hamster, etc. I will pet sit any animal except the one's that have to eat other live animals. I can feed insects to your pet!

Do to the safety of other dogs and family, I will not watch Pit Bulls, Rottweiler, or any kind of dog that has a reputation of being able to turn mean.

I will send you pictures and you can see your dogs in action and how happy they are.

I might be far from the city but you're dog will thank you for it!!!!

After all it is your dogs vacay too!

Please message me if you have any questions.

Thank You

Shelly was very kind and extremely likable. She loved y dog and was very playful with her! She was also very flexible with my schedule and was very willing to help on such short notice.
I was nervous leaving my dog with someone for the weekend. I had to attend a funeral and didnt want the added stress of the worry for my dogs well being.
I was so pleasantly surprised to meet Shelly. She was so kind and made me feel at ease. She texted pictures of my buddy having fun and playing with her. She became close to him. I plan on taking him to her regulary so my wife and i can have some time together.
I didnt just find a dog boarding home but she is a friend that i would recommend to anyone.
My buddy seemed to not want to leave.
So if you are looking for a professional and honest person. Look no further!!!
Shelly was wonderful with our puppies! They had a great time there and Shelly made our first DogVacay a wonderful experience.
Shelly was great! We will be taking our dog back for sure!
Oh My Gosh What a WONDERFUL experience for us and the dogs! We could not have asked for any better sitter than Shelly! I will tell everyone and have told everyone how awesome it was. She truly loves babysitting these animals!
I just can not say enough good things. Sadie Mae and Harley did AWESOME!!! I will be getting her to furbaby sit again Very SOON!!!
Big fenced in backyards for our 85 pound Sadie Mae and 10 pound Harley to run and play!!!!!
Shelly and her Mom are great with my dogs. My dogs enjoy them very much!
Shelly is so good with my dogs, and my dogs love her!
Krissy stays with Shelly every time we are out of town. I know she is in good hands!
Shelly is very flexible and you can tell that she loves animals. My 2 dogs did well,even the one that doesn't like change. Shelly kept us informed by sending many pics and even a video. Very pleased.
Leaving my dog with Shelly was a very good experience. I know she was well taken care of, and I didn't worry about her at all while I was gone.
Shelly is an excellent dog sitter. My dogs took to her and her mom very well. Shelly has gone the extra mile to ensure my dogs are very well taken care of. Gives me a peace of mind knowing I don't have anything to worry about while gone on vacation or work.
Great stay for our dog Lilly, loved the pictures and the cost was very reasonable, Love this idea of the dog staying in a home not a cage!
Judging from all the pictures and video that Shelly sent me while he stayed with her, our Jackson had a blast! She was very nice and took great care of my pup. I would recommend her to others in the area looking for a pet sitter.
I could not be happier to find someone I feel comfortable to take care of our dog. We just got back from a month abroad and everything went perfect. We will continue to use Shelly from now on.
When I picked up the kids they were happy, healthy, and showed no signs of stress. In fact, when Shelley was putting their beds in the back two of my dogs were up at the window with her. I was very impressed that my guys were so comfortable. I will definitely use her in the future.
Shelly appears to care about each of her guests...
My fur babies love being at Shelly's. She definitely gives them lots of love and affection. When they are with her it's a vacation for them. No kennels and lots of yard to play in.
She was friendly and had plenty of space for the dogs. My dog was very calm and relaxed when I picked her up. I would use her again.
Shelly is a true dog person. Our dogs were immediately welcome and they were engaged right away. We watched them in the huge backyard for awhile to see how they were and I had zero issues as they seemed totally good with the space. No issues with her at ALL.

This woman is a wonderful watcher, and will be watching my dogs exclusively in the future.
Shelly was AMAZING. You can tell she loves animals and she showed my dog lots of love while I was gone. My dog had not done well at previous places, and Shelly's attention and yard made all the difference!
Shelly loves animals and takes good care of them. My dog Happy bonded to her older beagle, and my other dog Ali loved barking at cattle throgh Shelley's fence. Our dogs had as good vacation as we did!
It is very clear that Shelly has a sincere passion for animals. Marcello and Giada immediately felt at home with her which made my work week go smoothly! She has a wonderful, big back yard that borders some pastureland so the pups got to visit with cows and horses (through the fence, of course!)
