About Shalena

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Seeking pet owners who are working, going on vacation, or just need a day off! Chasing Pooch of Saint Cloud wants to pamper you by pampering your pet with leisure, long walks, and love! Being a dedicated and loving pet owner myself, I can relate to the fear of leaving your pet with a stranger. I have a bearded dragon named Vern who spends most of his time in his cage, & a well trained and friendly pitbull named Kobe. He would absolutely love to meet some new friends, so meet and greets will be required to ensure the dogs get along. I have grown up with animals my entire life and have had first hand experience training them. Specialties include potty training, walking on a leash and essential commands. Tips for at home training can be provided! Dogs will have access to all main living areas of the house, and the backyard(tie out off deck). I take Kobe for daily walks(quarry trails or the park) so the dog(s) will more than likely be walked alongside him. The dogs will have unlimited play, Kobe is very energetic and will keep us all busy. NO breed restrictions apply, we are an equal opportunity sitter! Please feel free to contact me via phone or email if any additional walks, potty breaks, special needs or other information is vital.

Shalena is a great dog owner and is passionate about the wellbeing and safety of the animals she cares for. She often dog-sat for me and would volunteer to bring my dog along when she took Kobe, her dog, out hiking. My experience working for a doggy-daycare in Lacrosse WI improved my knowledge of animal care. Shalena and I would often discuss the grooming methods and health of our dogs, along with the methods I witnessed at doggy-daycare. She is a responsible and loving pet owner as well as a great person.

What makes Shalena so good at being a pet sitter is that she truly loves my dogs like she loves her own. She is sweet, honest, reliable, and very instinctive with animals. Every time she has cared for my two dogs they are so excited to see her and terribly sad when it's time to leave. She loves taking them for hikes in the bluffs and letting them play with her dog Kobe. Any time I need a sitter she is always the one I call and whom I know I can trust. She has become family to me and my dogs and I cannot express enough how thankful I am to have her.

Shalena pet sat for us for a week in our home for our dog Stella and cat Barney. We were flexible so she spent time between our home and her home. She took great care of Stella. Shalena kept Stella busy despite a week of weather that was too cold for people and pets to be outside. They still managed to go on walks and play outside. Shalena’s dog Kobe was a great playmate for Stella and he helped to wear her out. Shalena communicated with me on a daily basis and sent photos too. I was able to enjoy my vacation knowing that my pets were in good hands. Barney ended up a little sick and Shalena had to carpet clean. She also went above and beyond her job description and shoveled our driveway twice while we were gone. Shalena is a real dog lover. Stella responded to her and listened to her immediately when we met. I can tell Stella misses seeing Shalena and Kobe now that we are home.
