About Shelley

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a very friendly, professional, reliable and animal loving person. I love all pets, big or small breeds. I work full-time, M-F at the VA hospital in Palo Alto serving the wonderful Veterans which I truly enjoy. I would also like the opportunity to help with pet care before I go to work as well as evenings, on the weekends and/or holidays.

I am able to handle larger breeds and multiple dogs that reside in the home with ease. I love walking or running/jogging dogs, giving plenty of scratches, affection, much needed attention and lots of exercise.

My territory is primarily in Menlo Park, Atherton, Palo Alto, Emerald Hills, Woodside, Redwood City, Portola Valley, Los Altos as well as parts of Mountain View.

I look forward to the opportunity to take care of your furry loved one. Please feel free to ask questions on specific needs. I welcome the chance to provide your pooch with lots of love!

We are over the moon about finding Shelley on DogVacay and having her stay with our Bernese Mountain Dog and Cavalier. She was perfect and our dogs gave her both paws up for care, nurture, attending to their quirks, and updates. So very prompt and positive a delight. Can't wait to book her again for our pups!! Thanks so much

Shelley took care of our four dogs for a week when we went on vacation and did a wonderful job. The dogs range from small to big and from young to old. We could tell that she loved dogs the minute she walked in to meet them for the first time. She put them at ease immediately and they behaved like they were old friends. When we returned, the dogs appeared relaxed and well cared-for, and the house was clean and tidy. She also watered the potted plants and vegetable garden. We will certainly use her again and we highly recommend her to anyone needing a pet sitter.

When we first met with Shelley, her love for dogs and caring heart were evident. In addition, she was responsive and professional from our first contact until the end of our dog's "vacay" with her.

Shelley was flexible and came back to care for our dog when we experienced a long flight delay. Our dog was well cared for and we returned to a happy dog and clean home.

Shelly was amazing with our two dogs, two cats, and two birds! She went above and beyond what we had asked her to do! I could tell with every update she sent that my pets were happy and well cared for. Even my border collie Zoey, who is a nervous nelly with all new things, was relaxed and calm. Shelly took the extra time to make sure Zoey was comfortable and happy. I will 100% use this service and Shelly again for our next vacation!

Shelley was so great! We got tons of updates with photos of our 2 dogs while we were gone and came home to a spotless house and happy puppies after 9 days away. We will definitely have Shelley stay with our dogs again the next time we travel!
Shelley was great with my dogs. She was proactive in learning their needs and sent me great pictures while I was gone as well. I feel very comfortable having her look after my dogs (including my blind dog who needs a bit of special attention) and I look forward to having her help me out again in the future.

Shelley is the most amazing sitter my pup ever had! He absolutely loved her since the first contact. She was great with him and knows what she is doing. She sent us updates and great pics of them having fun and he was happy and tired when we got home. I couldn't recommend her enough. Will definitely hire her again and I'm sure anyone can trust their dogs with her!

Shelley was so easy to work with! Always prompt, professional, and thoughtful. She is a clear and reliable communicator, and our dog seemed to really like her. We won't hesitate to book with Shelley again!
Shelley has been absolutely wonderful caretaker for our dog. This is the second time we've reached out to her for dog walks/feedings while we've been out of town, and I trust her wholeheartedly when we're away. It's rare that I feel at ease with anyone taking care of my dog- especially since he's an energetic boxer- but Shelley is great with him and knows exactly how to handle larger dogs.She is always super responsive and I know my dog is in great hands with her !

Shelley did a wonderful pet sitting for my two dogs while I was away. She provided daily updates and seemed to truly enjoy taking care of the dogs.
My two pups had an excellent time at their second sleepover with Shelley! The pups came back happy and tired :) Shelley is a lovely person and dog lover. Highly recommend!
Shelley was incredibly responsive and friendly. She's a true dog lover. I would definitely recommend her for your pup's vacay!
Shelley has to be one of the nicest people! When I first reached out to Shelley I was definitely a bit nervous as this was our first experience using Dog Vacay and our pup was only 15 weeks old. But any worries I might have had were immediately put to ease after speaking and meeting with Shelley!! She took amazing care of our puppy and communicated with us throughout the entire weekend - sending us lots of updates and pictures!!! When we went to pick Remi up we could tell she had a fun weekend with Shelley and got lots of attention!!! Thank you so much Shelley!!!

Shelley is so wonderful and sweet. We will definitely have her take care of our animals again.
Shelly was fabulous and took great care of Bella with lots of walks and updated photos of her while we were away. Highly recommend her.
Shelley did an amazing job taking care of Bailey! And she was so accommodating, it was a last minute trip and she was so helpful picking Bailey up and dropping her off. Bailey came back happy as ever! She did multiple long walks a day and sent me pictures throughout the weekend. I am so happy I found Shelley, she treated Bailey as though she was her own! Thanks so much Shelley!!
