About Sheila

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your home away from home for your beloved pet. Cody and I absolutely love having other dogs here and your pup will be loved and cared for like one of the family.
I have had dogs of my own for 25 years. I have been taking care of friend's dogs as well as fostering dogs of all shapes, sizes and ages for the past four years, so have a wealth of experience dealing with all different personalities and needs. I am certified in animal first aid and CPR.
I live in a single family home with a fully fenced back garden so your pup will be able to run around the garden or just laze on the deck while we are home. They will usually get two walks each day and have numerous opportunities to go out in the garden under supervision. I never let them out unattended. I often take my dog and the fosters to Cabin John Park as well as on shorter hikes with me, so if your pup loves the great outdoors, let me know and we will try to fit that in.
I am a teacher but have quite flexible hours which enable me to get home at lunch times to give the dogs potty breaks. I am home during school holidays as well as at weekends.
Cody is a rescue dog from City Dogs Rescue. He was my first foster and never left! He is now five years old and loves having friends of all shapes and sizes come to stay. He is amazingly patient, and loves to play with his friends, but also understands when they need their space. He is amazing with smaller dogs despite his size. He has the run of the house and sleeps with me so if that is what yours is used to, that's fine. If they are crate trained, have restrictions on where to sleep, or space restrictions, just let me know. I am fine administering medications should your pup need them.
You can rest assured your pup will receive the best care possible here with me.
Your dog must be up to date on all shots including bordetella. I recommend they have a canine flu vaccination too.

We've found a home away from home for our dog, Ethel. Sheila was so flexible with us - allowing us to split Ethel's stay into two and being understanding when our pick up and drop off times changed. Most importantly, Ethel had a wonderful time - playing with Cody and relaxing in the backyard. Due to Ethel's senior age, Sheila took Ethel on separate, slower strolls which we know Ethel appreciated! We also got daily pics and updates. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

My dog was very comfortable with Sheila and the other dogs. Sheila provided great daily email updates as well as photos which were enjoyable and reassuring. I would be happy to use her again.
Sheila was amazing! I have a black lab mix rescue dog who is very nervous and anxious in new settings, so I'm nervous leaving her. I am new to the area and had to find a new go to place for her to go when I'm away. Sheila made her feel comfortable and won her over the very first day! She has a nice fenced in backyard which Miley loved too. Sheila sent me daily updates so really after day 1 of a 6 day trip I knew I made the right choice to book with Sheila rather than a more standard dog daycare. I highly recommend Sheila and I'm very picky!
