About Josh & Shelby

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Josh and Shelby are young professionals who have grown up with animals their whole lives. During Shelby's childhood, she had two dogs, a cat, a bird, and two horses all at the same time! They adore pampering their pup Betsy who loves to have buddies to play with! As a family they take walks around the neighborhood, trips to the local dog park and the beach, play fetch in their large fenced in yard, and also love spending lazy Sundays cuddled up on the couch. Betsy was a star student in her obedience class and could help teach your pooch her fancy tricks! Thankfully, our careers have allowed us to work from home during the days we are listed as available, so your furbaby will be guaranteed lots of love and attention. Contact us today to set up a meet and greet in our home for you and your pet!

I believe that Josh and Shelby Bettinger would be a great choice for pet sitters. Both of them have loved and cared for multiple pets throughout their lives, including...dogs, cats, birds and even horses. In each case, they have been responsible and loving pet owners, making sure their pets always have proper nutrition, exercise and playtime, socialization, vet care, and most of all...unconditional love! In addition, they have a nice, clean home with a fenced-in yard, perfect to keep pets healthy and safe. I know the Bettingers would be an excellent addition to the Dog Vacay community.

Josh & Shelby are wonderful with a variety of pets. They have the ability to adapte to your pets needs to allow the stay to be low stress as possible for your pet. There home has a seven foot privacy fence that is very secure that will allow your dog to lay in the shade or run in the sun. They can watch our animals any day!

Two words; trustworthy and reliable. They are also well mannered, and have the patients and understanding that it takes to be outstanding sitters.

As an employer myself and as being Josh's former boss, I can say that these two are a genuine class act. I would not hesitate to trust them with any of my pets if the need arose.

Josh and Shelby are loving and kind pet owners who will treat your dog like family. Great experience!
These two awesome people and their little Betsy are the absolute best! They are everything you're looking for in a sitter. They are very communicative, friendly and silly yet professional to show you that your dog is staying with someone like you and could not be in better hands!

I had one request being that I miss my dog so much when I'm gone, to send me a pic here and there throughout his stays. They over deliver sending me updates on play time, chill time, and when he's my silly boy. Besides warming my heart to see him after a long business day on travel, it also assures me seeing he acts like he does at home being my happy boy; the only difference is that he has more nap time there because he has so much playtime with Betsy. I couldn't ask for a better deal as they also treat my boy like one of their own!

The only negative would be for them to tell me they no longer want to watch my boy, but we have only experienced their and Betsy's excitement to know he's coming back again.

Thank you Josh, Shelby, and Betsy!
Josh and Shelby were wonderful! They took Sky in on such late notice over the Thanksgiving holiday. They asked all the necessary questions to make sure Sky would be comfortable and happy in their home. She is an old dog so she is not exactly the easiest to take care of. But they did an awesome job and I recommend them to anyone who needs to board their dog! Thanks again guys!
