About Shuko

I am a retired and stay at home mom
(Hanna and Talo's), I love dogs. They make me happy and I want to make them happy as well. Since I am a stay at home mom I can dedicate my time to pooches 24/7. My house is very quiet , especially good for older dogs and dogs that don't like children. There are plenty of toys for dogs to play with. Snack time, chicken breasts mix with their own food unless instruct not to.I have a doggie door and small fenced area, it is big enough for small and mid size dogs.I take my dogs to the dog park twice a day. New dog park is conveniently located just a couple of minutes from my home. Unfortunately my yard is not big enough for big dogs , but I can keep small ones. I would love to have your dog spend the night over. I can also pick up and deliver for $15 each way , day care also available for busy mom and dad.

What more can I say! Shuko has been my dog's most favorite sitter since we started using DogVacay over 4 years ago. Never, ever any problems with him staying with Shuko. -Susan
she is the best and my dog loves her!!!!
Shuko is a great dogsitter! Penny had a fun time with her and the other dogs. Shuko takes the dogs to the dogpark twice a day and sends videos of Penny running around. It's cute. She has been keeping Penny for a few years now and is the first one I think of when I have to go out of town and can't take Penny with me. I highly recommend her.

I could not think of a better person to leave my Gingie with (other than me!). She is a truly caring dog lover and treats all of her residents like her own babies. Love her!
We were so happy to find Shuko to watch our 13 year old Bichon for 2 weeks - Lola went to the dog park twice a day and happily slept on the couch the rest of the day. So much better than a cage at a boarding place! Thank you Shuko for an excellent stay!

We always try to take our pups with us when we can, but we had a one-week vacation out of the country and needed a nice happy safe place for our Petey and Betsy.

We had met Shuko occasionally at local dog parks in the past but didn't know how to reach her. When we recognized her on DogVacay we knew right away we wanted to make a reservation with her! We met ahead of the trip to go over details and make sure our dogs were comfortable (they were!), then dropped our dogs off the night before we departed on an early AM flight. We knew they were in great hands with Shuko.

They had daily visits to the park and ample playtime with other doggies and we received video updates that were so reassuring!!

For two pups that normally have free run of our house, it gave us peace of mind that they were in a relaxed open and familiar environment-- they're not used to crates or kennels, so we didn't want to board at those kind of facilities.

Petey and Betsy were so grateful to be with such an attentive pet sitter - definitely a pawsome stay!

All four of us (our two pugs and their "parents") highly recommend Shuko without any reservations! She is professional, caring, and overall a wonderful person!

Shuko was amazing! She watched my corgi/chihuahua mix Luna for a night when I was passing through town and I couldn't keep her with me. She took her to the dog park twice and sent me updates and videos which I really appreciated. I highly recommend her to watch anyone's pups!

Shuko is the dog whisperer indeed! My 16 year old poodle was never left with anyone outside of the vet; however, Shuko made him feel as if she was his momma. He adjusted very well with the other dogs and she catered to his needs for an old dog. Her twice a day videos were reassuring that my dog was happy and well taken cared of. I certainly will use Shuko again.

Shuko was great with our little one. She had fun at the dog park with Shuko and also loved to play with her during the day. Thanks Shuko!
Penny (my dog) has been going to Shuko's for a few years now and always has a great time there. Shuko takes the dogs to the dog park twice a day and sends me cute videos of Penny and the other dogs running around. I think Penny eats better at Shuko's than she does at home. I highly recommend letting Shuko dog-sit for you. She does a great job and really loves the dogs!

Awesome home away from home! My little dog Teddy was so happy to get there for his third overnight stay. His excitement was a true indication of the wonderful time he has with Shuko! She has a true love for dogs and the perfect house and fenced yard. Daily trips to the dog park too! I highly recommend her!!

Shuko is always great!! We are never worried when leaving our dog with her ??
Shuko is AWSOME! She takes care of Shogun as if he were her own dog! I love the daily videos and will continue to use her to watch my precious 4 legged buddy
As always, Shuko treats Cindy like one of her own. Loads of love and special attention.
Coal had an excellent time with Shuko. He loved playing with the other dogs Shuko was excellent at keeping me updated throughout the weekend with pictures/videos of Coal. Would highly recommend Shuko.
This was the first time Teddy spent the night at Ms. shuko's and I could tell he had a great time!
I really appreciated the video updates that she sent and I loved seeing the other new friends that he made during the weekend.
He was definitely worn out by the time he came home and went to bed early

Shuko was very good at sending video updates of the dogs while in her care. Dogs loved the dog park...
Shuko is the best. Unfortunately, Bear was sick, but she took great care of him. I would recommend her to any small dog owner.
Shuko's place was nice and neat, she was prompt in responding all questions I had, I felt safe for my 2 papillon because she only takes small dogs, she takes dogs out to the park everyday, she is close enough, and she sends at least 2 videos of my dogs playing a day. What more do you want? Best dog boarding ever!

Shuko is the very best! Our little pooch loves to stay with her.
Mason has had one sitter his whole life. However we just moved and needed to find a new sitter closer to home for daycare. I am VERY protective of my baby and was a nervous wreck with the thought of having to leave him with someone new. Thank goodness I found Shuko!!!! She was very welcoming and prompt in response to my questions. She sent me videos all throughout the day. Mason was very well cared for. He's there right now, and I'm at ease. Thank you so much Shuko, we appreciate it!

Fantastic as usual! Shadow loves to go there! She has such a good time!
Shuko is the best! This is the second time Bailey has stayed with her while we were away. Shuko keeps a very clean home and it makes us feel comfortable with him being there. You can tell Shuko really cares for and loves her little guests. We were kept updated with video footage of Bailey at home and in the dog park with his new little friends. We can't thank Shuko enough for her care and consideration. This is a great experience for Bailey, and we are completely confident with Shuko's care of our baby Bailey!

It was Yuki's first time to be away from home and she had a great time. Shuko took Yuki to the doggy park everyday and sent us video daily. Shuko is a grest host and she even painted a portrait for Yuki. We are so impressed with Shuko.
I cannot say enough amazing things about Shuko. Our family feels so comfortable leaving Cotton with her when we are out of town. She sends me videos of Cotton every single day. The most important thing for anyone is making sure your baby is safe and comfortable, getting exercise, having fun, and is happy. I can tell there is always supervision so the dogs are safe, Cotton is at the doggy park and being walked several times a day, playing with other dogs and with Shuko, and I can definitely tell he is beyond happy. Shuko even painted a picture of Cotton and it was AMAZING!!!!! She has many talents! Shuko is the best!!!

Thanks to Shuko we had another worry free weekend. It sure is nice to go away and not worry about our "kid". Thanks for taking good care of her!
Shuko is the best. She is the only person I am comfortable leaving my dog with. She takes them to the dog park everyday and also sends frequent video updates. She even cuts up chicken for them! Shuko is an absolute blessing for anyone who has a dog that is nervous to be left alone. Far better than any boarding facility or person I've ever left my dog with in the past. 5/5 rating for Shuko. Simply the best.

As usual, Shuko treated our Cindy with the love and affection as if she were one of her own dogs. Cindy loves visiting Shuko so much, I'm afraid she won't want to come home with us some day! :-)
This was our 2nd time leaving Silver with Shuko. And as always she made us enjoy our vacation without worry. She sent us VDO and let us know what's was going on with him. Shuko took care him very well and "Thank You" is seem not enough for me to Thanks her. Silver definitely will come back to her on our next vacation.
Beyond Measure :-)

Once again, our Cindy girl came home worn out from all the fun she had with Shuko and Shuko's other guest dogs. So thrilled Shuko treats her with as much care as she treats her own dog. Thanks!
Bear and I love our Shuko! We will continue using her.
Poor Shuko had to deal with poor weather while we were gone, yet Cindy appears to still have had a wonderful time. So much fun that she's worn out and resting from her vacation of fun filled activities. Thanks for insuring that Cindy has as much fun on her vacation as we do!

Shuko is amazing and a wonderful host. I would highly recommend her. My dog came back happy as ever. I could tell she had a great time with Shuko
Once again, Shuko was the best. I received so many videos. It made me SOOO happy to watch them. I also love that Cotton has so much freedom. I know he is not cooped up all day inside a house. Cotton gets to run all over the dog park. I could tell he was happy. Shuko is seriously the best. I am never worried when Cotton is with her.

Cindy had a wonderful time. She loved playing with the other pups... so much so... she came home and promptly went to bed. Her parents had a wonderful trip enjoying every minute, knowing full well that Cindy was having a wonderful time and was well taken care of.

Shuko is amazing. My dogs come back from Shuko's home totally relaxed and unstressed. Her home is the only place that my dogs can stay and come home well fed and happy. I will continue to have Shuko watch my dogs as long as she is in the business. Thank you Shuko for taking such wonderful care of my dogs.

Leo loved staying over at Shuko's! He was a happy little pup when we got him back, enjoyed his park time and staying with good company! We will definitely go back! Thank you Shuko
I love having someone I can trust take care of my baby when I'm away. Shuko sends me lots of videos and pictures of my dog which is great bc we always miss him so much when we are away. Love Shuko, she is great and very accommodating!!
Shuko was great. She sent us picture and video to update how my dog was doing. Will be using her next time when we come back to Atlanta.
We had some unusual times this trip (left very early and came back quite late). Though I'm sure it was an imposition for Shuko, she graciously worked with our difficult schedule. I sincerely hope we didn't impose on her too much.
Shuko is ALWAYS amazing!!! Bernie is so happy with her. He loves her! I do not trust too many people to keep my baby, but Shuko is an exception!! She is phenomenal and extremely accomodating!
She is always a pleasure!! Would not ask anyone else to care for my baby!!
Shuko was AMAZING. This was my dog's first time away from home, which made me all the more nervous about keeping him overnight at someone else's home for almost a week. But I had zero worries the second I brought Cotton, my pup, over. Shuko sent me photos and videos daily so I could be worry-free while on vacation. Shuko also takes the dogs to the dog park twice a day so you never have to worry whether or not your dog is being cooped up at home. This was like a vacation for my dog. Also an important note to add, Shuko lets the dogs sleep wherever they want, they're not in a crate and they're not locked up in a room or anything - she even lets them sleep with her. That's so important for a dog to feel at home and comfortable at someone else's home. You can see all the love and care Shuko has for the dogs. You will feel so safe and so relaxed leaving your dog(s) with Shuko.

She is always awesome!
I am always so pleased to see that my dog really likes Shuko and is well cared for. I know this because Shuko sends me videos periodically of him throughput his stay.
Shuko made Bailey's stay a wonderful experience and recorded all of his adventures. She really does care about the dogs she cares for. We felt very comfortable with her and trust her completely.
Gets better every time I leave Bear with her. Bear is being socialized with other dogs and getting more used to Shuko. Love her!!!
Shuko is wonderful with my dog and he seems happy when he is there. I will have no concerns about leaving him as long as I can get Shuko to take care of him.
Cindy loves her mini vacations With Shuko. As soon as we pull into the Shuko's neighborhood she starts getting excited, whining, wagging her tail and dancing around. Once there, she jumps all about in anticipation of the front door opening and the beginning of her vacation. Cindy knows this is a great place and tells me every time we arrive with her dance of happiness.

I was extremely pleased with the care that Shuko gave my dog. When I picked him up he was happy and looked great. I was also very pleased that she sent me pictures and videos of my dog showing me that he was doing fine. Shuko is a wonderful,caring person.

Shuko took excellent care of Oscar. He went to several dog parks and had a great time. She was very concerned that he was happy and comfortable. We enjoyed getting the videos of Oscar playing, so we knew he was having a good time.
My pooch was the youngest. He's just 4 months and VERY playful. She gladly accepted him into her home for the weekend after our meet and greet. She sent me messages and videos all weekend of his activities in which I greatly appreciated. This a sure way for him to learn to bond with other dogs because it's just him and I in our home. Shuko is by far a great blessing to me because of my work schedule and I will definitely leave him in her care in the future. The home was definitely pet friendly :-)

This was my first time leaving my dogs with a dog sitter, first i was really nervous because they had never left me for a week and staying at a stranger, but Ms. Shuko made a difference. At first i explained to Ms. Shuko how nervous i was to find the right sitter for my girls since i have never used these type of service, she explained how the service work and even suggest that i did a Meet and Greet with her and the dogs to make sure i feel comfortable. For the first time i met with her i knew she was the one and the girls felt comfortable at her house. As the days drew closer to my vacation i was more anxious about how the girls would feel without seeing me for a week so i dropped them off the day before my vacation and Ms. Shuko asked if there was anything that she gotta watch out for or any food that they could not have. For the first day she sent me message to let me know the girls were doing fine and that they were at the park. Moving forward for the next 5 days she sent me videos and pictures of the girls at the dog park (twice a day). I was so happy with her service and my girls had such a blast i would definitely use her next time when i go on vacation and would definitely refer her to all my friends that have dogs and need a sitter.

Wonderful! She communicated daily with videos, pictures, and text messages, so we knew how our dog was doing. She took her out to one of the local parks twice a day. Even though we were gone for a week, which was longer than we had ever been gone, we felt entirely comfortable. She knew how to handle any problems that came up, and gave our dog special food when it was needed. We would definitely be happy for her to take care of our dog again!

Shuko is great! She sent me pictures and videos of Peggy throughout the day! We were very pleased with her services and look forward using her again:)
I knew when we met on M&G that this was the sitter I was looking for. Love, love her. Bear will be back, again. Shuko lives close to me and understands my needs and Bears. Thanks for this service.
Lucy not only got excellent care, but we could see from the many texted photos and videos we got each day that she had a really good time playing with the other dogs and twice a day trips to two of the best dog parks around! I liked that Shuko only keeps small - medium dogs and lets them lounge on her sofa and bed. She has a very nice clean house that felt safe and comfortable. We will definitely use Shuko again

Thank you Shuko! Charlie had a wonderful week :). I really appreciated all of the texts and videos. We will definitely call you again!
Shuko was great. She sent pictures and or videos every day to assure me my dog was in good hands. She took her to the park each day and took very good care of her. I'd recommend Shuko 100%!
Once again Cindy enjoyed her vacation with Shuko and Shuko's other guests. She played hard, received lot of love and was fed a healthy, fresh diet. What more could a mom want for her kid when absent from home?
Shuko was very accommodating and great with our dog! It was our first time leaving our dog with anyone and Shuko made us very comfortable. When I dropped my dog off he was already greeted by other friendly dogs, she took him to the park and send us pictures and videos. My dog had a great time! I will definitely use her again! She also have a very quick response rate, Thank you Shuko!!

Finding Shuko via the DogVacay site was a pleasant surprise for me. Thanks to Shuko's professional and personal care of our Ralphy, our visit to Duluth, GA from NC became one of the memorable trips. Shuko was very responsive and sent the videos and messages quite often to update Ralphy's status. We will definitely use Shuko's service again when we visit Duluth.

Shuko took great care of our dogs! She made trips to the dog park and sent us video clips of the outing. I didn't worry about them at all while we were gone. I will definitely use her again.
Once again Cindy stayed with Shuko while we were on a cruise. Normally I would be concerned "out of touch" (no cell service out at sea), but I have learned to trust Shuko and the decisions she makes about our little girl. I didn't worry AT ALL. Thank you so much Shuko.

This is the longest period of time we have left our little girl (10 days), yet we had no concerns since Shuko keeps in touch with texts, videos and pictures on a daily basis.
When my family and I left home for Disney, my dog stayed at Shuko's home for 5 days. Not only she took my dogs to the park everyday, but also sent me photos and videos of my dog everyday! Knowing my dog is in good hands, my family and I had a wonderful time away from home!
Read More...
Though Cindy is glad to be home... I have to say... she loves going to Shuko's as much as she loves coming home. She's treated like royalty with trips to the doggie park, friends to play with and a wonderful caring hands to hold and pet her. We can't say enough wonderful things.

Bella and Beethoven had a blast with Shuko while we were gone on vacation. She was very relaxed and capable. I loved the pictures and videos that she sent us to keep us updated. She went above and beyond by taking the dogs to the dog park daily so they could romp and play. I highly recommend Shuko with her lovely home.
Read More...
Great host. Will continue to use her services.
Shuko was an amazing host and sent us pictures and video each and every day (and more) throughout our vacation. She took very good care of our dogs by allowing them to sleep in her bed, lounge on the couch, and taking them to the park every single day. She also gave our dogs a heart healthy meal of fresh chicken and sweet potatoes everyday. I can't thank her enough for taking such great care of our dogs and we will be using her services again! Thank you so much!!! :)

I was very nervous to leave my pups for the first time, but Shuko was very accommodating, understanding and responded ALL my (many!) questions. Daily updates along with pictures and videos were really nice. I know Sophia, Sasha and Spencer had a great time at Shuko's with her adorable babies Talo and Hanna. They really enjoyed the daily trip to the nearby dog park. Thank you for taking an awesome care of my babies and I will be reaching out to you very soon.

Thanks for taking care of Toby. We appreciated the flexibility and were comforted by the pictures and videos of him.
My dog Mini enjoyed their 2 weeks with Shuko and her dogs. While Mini stays in your house, thank you for sending a wonderful video to me. My family and I were very happy to be able to see Mini doing well.
Thank you again and we will definitely use Shuko's service again.

As usual, Cindy had a grand time visiting Shuko and her other house guest.
Silver had a great time ! This was his first time away from us and we are very happy with Ms.Shuko. She emailed us picture and VDO of Silver. This is the best part because we're so miss him. We will definitely have Silver stay with Ms.Shuko the next time we're away.

We just picked up our little Cindy and it appears that she had a wonderful time. Shuko treated her like royalty by taking her to the dog park and treating her to special treats. The best part was the daily text messages to us keeping us updated on how she was doing and if she was adapting to her new envirnment. I would highly recomend Shuko, especially for smaller dogs.

Shuko was the absolute best provider I could have found! She treated Dusty so well, I was afraid he might not want to come home :-)
She provided regular photo updates of Dusty's stay and activities, and this really allayed any concerns I might have had about leaving him.
I would highly recommend Shuko to anyone!
