About Shannon

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Shannon and I've had a love for dogs (and animals) my entire life. I grew up with dogs and now have my own baby, Izzy, who is EXTREMELY spoiled as I'm sure many pets are and they should be. They are not only pets but family members too!

I think most people enjoy waking up to coffee and news. I enjoy waking up to coffee and playing with the dogs! I normally spend time with them before leaving for my full time job. Good thing about my full time job is that its only 5 minutes from my house.That means I get to have lunch with Izzy and any friends that are staying with us everyday :) I normally take them out and play fetch for a bit before going back to work. Then after work I normally walk them around the neighborhood, greenway, park, or river. After they are exhausted, they get to sleep in nice comfortable king size bed with me.

That's a typical schedule during the week. On the weekend we normally head out to Umstead, the dog park, the flea market, the farmers market....or pretty much anything that pertains to being outdoors.

Staying with Izzy and I, we promise your pups will have a WAG-tastic time!!

Location : Wake Forest near Capital Blvd. and Burlington Mills.

Shannon was awesome!! He totally had his hands full with my girl but he didn't seem to mind at all. I'll definitely be booking with him again soon.
Shannon was very generous to take Nauti on for such a long time. She is still a puppy and big and playful. I appreciated the pictures he sent of Nauti playing during her stay.
Shannon was amazing with my dog. This was my first time boarding my dog and also the first time that I left my dog with someone that I did know before. He was very good during the 8 days that my dog was with him. He always sends pictures and was ready to answer text messages. When my dog came back home, she was very good and happy. For sure next time that I need to board my dog, will be, for sure with Shannon. Thanks !
Shannon took my last minute reservation and helped me out of a tight spot. Cannot speak highly enough.
Shannon was very friendly and accommodating with our drop off and pick up times. Champ tends to have separation anxiety, but he seemed comfortable and well cared for. We will definitely be using Shannon's services again!
Our dog Abby is a very anxious dog. We left her with Shannon for a few days some weeks ago and our poor dog was really missing us. This was the first time that she had been away from her family. This time around was a lot better. Shannon told us that she got out of her bed, played and was doing really well.
So happy to have found Shannon and Izzy for this vacay! 'Sota and I were coming from a long trip in Scottsdale for another few days in NC to visit family (allergic to dogs) and he seemed homesick on our way to NC. Once he met Shannon and Izzy though, he was all he wanted to do was play!!! Shannon was great and accommodating, even with difficulty getting ahold of me the evening before I was to drop him off (wrong # listed on my profile). As soon as we met, 'Sota seemed right at home and loved by Shannon, making me feel comfortable with leaving him knowing that he was in good hands. He replied quickly whenever I reached out to him and sent pics of 'Sota to keep me updated. Communicative, welcoming, and definitely 'Sota approved!
My pup Stella always has a great experience with Shannon! She loves visiting him, and always comes home in a happy well balanced state.
Shannon was great with Maggie and she seemed to have a fun time! Loved the pictures he sent too. Thanks so much!
Another awesome experience with Shannon for my Frenchies Winston and Paris! Best pet sitter!
Our dog Sammy stayed with Shannon for a week while we were out of the country. Although we had limited access to internet, any time i texted Shannon I received response within a short amount of time. He sent me a couple pictures of Sammy which was comforting and was also very flexible with drop off & pick up times. Since returning home, Sammy has been moping around the house - I'm guessing he misses Shannon's dog, Izzy ;)
My two French Bulls had their second stay with Shannon, he cares for my dogs as if they were his own. I have compete peace of mind and confidence that my babies are well cared for. I highly recommend him for your pets well being when you are away!
Shannon did a great job with my pup Stella! She came home after a 5 day stay well balanced, clean, happy, and as if nothing major had changed in her routine over the past few days. He was walking her when I arrived, and easy to contact while I was away. He even left a bag of organic puppy treats as a parting gift. I will definitely be rebooking for my next trip out of town. :)
Shannon took care of our rat terrier, Dottie, over the Christmas Holiday and did a terrific job. He texted pictures of her during her stay, which is very reassuring. Great job and we enjoyed our time knowing she was being taken care of. We highly recommend Shannon.
Shannon was great. We got updates and pictures throughout our trip. Would definitely recommend him to anyone.
I have found the BEST dog sitter in the world! Shannon kept our French Bulldogs for 7 nights recently and I cannot rave enough about the excellent care he provided. We received photos of our dogs playing with his dog Izzy. Shannon kept our dogs on there regular feeding schedule and administered the medication as directed for Winston. Paris had her daily walks with Izzy and even our elderly dog Winston had inside playtime. When I picked my dogs up on the last day, they were happy and healthy...I just knew thew were very comfortable staying with Shannon and Izzy. My husband and I are thrilled to know we have found the perfect place when we travel...Thank you so much Shannon!
We have used Shannon 2 times now. Maci has had a great time hanging with Shannon and Izzy! We will definitely use him again with our next trip!
Another awesome experience with Shannon! So accommodating! Hoping to have him sit for us again soon! :)
We had to leave our 4 month old labradoodle for an extended period for the first time. We decided to try dog vacay instead of those boarding houses because we wanted to give her a more"at home"experience. We couldn't be happier with our decision! Shannon was great! We got mobile pix and updates and I think Lola has found her forever puppy sitter and new best friend in Izzy, Shannon 's dog. We will definitely be leaving our Lola with Shannon again and referring him to ask of our friends!
Shannon was awesome! Our dog is very anxious and Shannon did a great job with him. He sent us pictures throughout the weekend which was really nice. Coco was treated like a king. I would definitely recommend him.
