About Shella

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a family of four who love pets, especially dogs! My husband works at home. I'm in and out all day. I have an eleven year old girl who can't get enough of dogs. Pisco, is our 3 year old Welsh Terrier who is very friendly, playful and very well behaved, and I am very active and enjoy caring all kinds of pets. Together we will make sure your puppy feels at home. We usually go for walks 2 times a day, we live in a large house with a big front yard where we play with our puppy and are lucky enough to live one block away from the beach. Hope we could help next time you are out of town or go to work.

I have known Shella for nearly nine years, during which she has "sat" for both our children and our pets (a cat and a dog). Shella is hard worker, 100% trustworthy, and as kind as can be. Any pet would be lucky to have Shella looking after him/her!

Thanks Shella & family for hosting our Westie. We really were happy to receive your texts throughout the day reporting on how he was doing.
Shella and her family are wonderful! They took great care of our young puppy while we were out of town. It was our first time using DogVacay (or any other boarding place) so we were a bit nervous at first, but Shella sent frequent pictures and updates showing us he was in good hands. We especially appreciated how responsive she was. The family provided our pup with plenty of walks, playtime with their dog, Pisco, and cuddles with their sweet daughter. Our puppy obviously had a great time - he wanted to keep playing with Pisco even when we came to pick him up! I would definitely recommend Shella and her family, and we plan to board with them again!
Louie had a great time with Shella and her family. Communication prior to the stay was excellent as well as during the stay. Shella texted us updates frequently. I highly recommend having your dog stay with Shella!
Very good experience. Our dog truly had a great vacation with Shella and her family.
Shella was great! She was super responsive to our inquiries and sent us several pictures of our little chiweenie while she had him over the holidays. He had a great time with her, her dog, and her loving family. I highly recommend Shella to anyone looking for a sitter; we will definitely be return customers :)
I usually don't give reviews, but 'Boaring and Playdates with Pisco' really deserves one. I love my dog so much and everyone tells me that I spoil him. Therefore, i was really worried when I was choosing a a boarding place for my dog for when II was away. However, I now trust this place and recommended it strongly. This place is pawsome. First of all, the whole process was really organized. We asked for a pick up service and I was really amazed at how on time they were even though it was early in the morning. While I was away, I received numerous quality photos of my dog every day. The photos showed how much I could really trust this place and how much my dog was enjoying his time there. I gave them instructions on how to feed my dog since he's very picky and they were followed accurately. Overall I was very satisfied with my experience with this place. They were super organized, super flexible and I know my dog was happy with his experience there, seeing that he wasn't as stressed out as the other times I was away. One thing I was very happy with was how they packed all the leftover food. Anyway, I would absolutely recommend this family
As always, my dogs stay was great!
Shella listened to our concerns and went right to work with our Maltipoo. We kept her there another night since the results were amazing. I would recommend Shella to anyone looking for a sitter. She stands out from the rest as she goes above and beyond to work on any issues that you're having with your pet. Thanks Shella!
Wonderful experience, my puppy couldn't have a better sitter, she really cares about the dogs Love this place!!
Shella, Diego, their daughter and dog Pisco are amazing!

I had researched many dog daycares in my area (warehouse style) and I could not imagine bringing my puppy to those type of facilities.

I am so glad I found them! From the moment I met them I felt so comfortable leaving my puppy with them.

Diego works from home and is with the dogs all day and Shella is in and out all day. They feed my dog, take her on at least one walk, sometimes more and allow plenty of playtime with Pisco. They text photos and updates to me everyday as well.

At the end of the day they provide a "report cart" which gives info on how many times my dog used the restroom, how many walks she went on and how long and her overall mood/ energy level.

Everyday I drop my dog off she is happy to be there and every day I bring her home she is exhausted, which is hard to accomplish with my high energy puppy!

Their house is clean and secure as well.

They have be so easy and accommodating when booking and scheduling drop offs and pick ups.
