About Shelly and Emily

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Dundas; the 'Valley City' nestled in the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve!

In 2016 we welcomed guests not just from the U.S., but from New Zealand too! We are proud to be international!

Come be a part of our 'famjam'. We have been caring for animals all our lives; looking after friends'/families' pets for over a decade. Shelly worked in a small, local veterinary clinic for a 10 years, primarily in administration, but did assist with emergencies and 'out-of-business hours' relief.

We are a mother/daughter team. Emily will be attending post-secondary school beginning September 2015, so we'll be offering pet care in 'your' home in the Guelph area. Shelly has a flexible work schedule. We will go for a minimum of 2 daily walks, enjoy play and yard time and get plenty of attention.

Our patio door opens to private, fully fenced yard; situated in a ravine-type setting. It has a lovely balance of sun and shade.

Sit by the 'fireplace' or bask in the afternoon sun beaming in the front room.

Stay in our dog-friendly neighbourhood. Dundas hosts great trails to walk on.

Your dish is waiting.

I feel very fortunate to have found Shelly. She did a wonderful job looking after my extraordinarily hyper and challenging puppy. She understood her specific needs and demonstrated an excellent understanding of my Sophie's interaction with other dogs. I felt very comfortable leaving my pup with Shelly and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. The updates and communication were excellent and made for a stress free experience (for me anyway). Most importantly my pooch loved it there and actually didn't want to leave!

I love Shelly! I hope she's available when I need her again! She went above and beyond and my gang was very happy and relaxed when we got home.
Shelly was fantastic with Darcy.! At age 15 and coming from a quiet household with no other dogs, I could tell he was anxious with exposure to the large dogs but she kept him segregated until he felt safe . She handled all the dogs in her care beautifully with calm assertiveness and warmth. In addition she kept me very updated for our first visit which helped me relax. Darcy came home unfazed with the home away experience thanks to her positive handling. She was also knowledgeable about his habits from the info I provided and appeared very confident in handling his idiosyncrasies. We love Shelly and will be booking an extended vacay with her.
