About Shelley

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We always take a morning walk and sniff at Maidu Park. It's got some wonderful walking paths. Usually, have a nice chewbone when getting back from the walk. Dogs take a snooze and then either take a walk around our neighborhood and visit with other dogs or we toss a ball and play in the yard. I also offer dog walking from your home if it is within a 10 mile radius. I prefer small dogs since my property is small. I absolutely LOVE taking care of Dachshunds! They have such cute, funny personalities. We do best with small dogs only. My doxies act obnoxious if they encounter a large dog, so I do not take the larger breeds. I also prefer to keep it to a maximum of my two dogs plus another dog or two. Since my children have grown and gone on to their own lives, I love having dogs around to make noise and be active.

Shelly did a great job in taking care of Snowflake while we were on our vacation and we really appreciated the daily pictures that she sent us. I would highly recommend her service.
This was the first time I have ever left my dog with someone other than family. I will definitely be calling Shelley again for boarding my little pup. Shelley is very sweet and I love that she sent me updates and photos of my dog while I was away. Her dog Daisy is the cutest and got along well with my dog and another that was staying there at the time. Shelley doesn't take too many dogs at one time so I knew that my dog was going to get the attention and care that she needed while I was away. I am so thankful that I found a safe and comfortable place to board my dog when I am out of town. Thank you Shelley!

Shelley and Daisy are the best! Our dog Lucky loves visiting there. He loves having others pups to play with, gets to go on daily walks and dog park trips. He thinks it's his second home. Shelley makes every effort to make her guests feel comfortable. We love getting email updates and photos of their daily activities.
I highly recommend Shelley.

Our dog Bo has been staying with Shelley for years! Bo loves his stays and always returns home happy and content. Shelley always sends us updates while we're away and we love them. She is our #1 pet sitter and we feel very comfortable leaving our sweet boy with her. She is a great communicator and we appreciate her efforts to match the dogs and their personalities, so there is harmony.

Shelley is wonderful and my nervous little doxie did great! I
I appreciated that Shelley took the time to do a thorough preliminary doggie visit and interview with me to discuss expectations and to gather important information needed to make sure Ginger's stay was successful.

Shelley took such great care of my cockapoo Ginger. Ginger got along great with the host doggie Daisy and I was happy that she had some dog company. Shelley has a nice home and took the dogs on regular walks and trips to the dog park. She only takes one dog at a time in addition to her own dog, which I appreciated.
When I came to pick up Ginger she seemed very at ease and relaxed which tells me that she felt relaxed and happy during her stay.
This is my second experience with DogVacay and it has been a positive one!

Shelley, as always was great. She always sends updates and pictures. Dogs are treated like they are at their own home. Plenty of walks, hugs and company.
Lucy loves to go to Shelley's house to stay when we are away and can't take her with us.

Her home is clean, her dogs get along well with visiting dogs.

You can tell how much Shelley loves to have dogs stay with her... they even get to sleep with her..

She is really good about sending photos of your dog while staying her and emails them to you.

I would definitely refer Shelley to anyone, especially with mini doxies.

My two babies keep crying that they want to go play at Shelley's! They always have a such good time! She walks them in my neighborhood & I always get multiple reports on how happy they are. The neighborhood watchers say she is the best!
My two puppies had an awesome vacation. Shelly walked them everyday, played ball & Frisbee with them! She sent lots of pictures & news about my pups. It was hard for me to leave them, but Shelly made it much easier.
I already have her signed up for our next trip!

Shelley was awesome! She is very reliable and let me know how my dogs were doing and it was very reassuring and allowed me to relax and enjoy myself- worry free. I would definitely hire Shelley again. Thank you Shelley and Dogvacay for helping me find her!

William loves Shelley! We do too. I am always so happy to leave him with her and know he is one happy puppy in her loving hands!
Shelley is awesome with our dog Lucky! He always has a great time with other dogs, going on daily walks and trips to the dog park.
Shelley is terrific with the little dogs. She keeps us updated on how Lucky is getting along and includes pictures of playtime.
It is such peace of mind that our four-legged son is having a happy vacation of his own while we are traveling.
Dog VACAY beats kennel boarding hands down!
Shelley is the best!

Amazing, awesome, wonderful!
We feel great about leaving our digs at Shelly's! She does a wonderful job keeping us in the loop about their daily lives, while we are away, and sending photos of them having fun. Can't imagine any better place for them to be when we aren't around to take care of them!

Shelley took great care of our active Chihuahua puppy (6 months). He had so much fun at her house being around other small dogs. I felt much better leaving him when we went out of town knowing he was not cooped up all day and was getting lots of attention. I loved the photos and detailed updates that Shelley emailed each day.

Shelley is a perfect pet host! My worries about leaving our "furbabies" for the first time quickly vanished. She knows exactly how they need to be loved and cared for as well as kept safe. Definitely appreciated our relaxing weekend away from the kids and the other kids! Thank you.

As always, Shelley is a delight! I know William has a great time with her, Frankie, and Daisy.
Wonderful folks,very polite,clean and friendly.They treat you dog like it's their own.
Shelley is delightful and our dog William is so comfortable staying with her. He doesn't seem to miss us at all! Shelley is quick to respond, sends photos of William, and was flexible when I had to change his pick-up time a little bit.

Thanks Shelley!

Cricket enjoyed her stay with Shelley, Frankie & Daisy. Shelley sent us updates and pictures as always. She's a great host, and Cricket will stay again another time !!
After our first reservation fell through, we searched around the area for a place near I-80 so we could easily drop off and pick-up on way to/from the airport. Shelley's home fit the bill and she was gracious enough to work with us on very short notice. She sent us updates and photos every day, and Pasha seems to have benefited from being around several other dogs as she is an only child at the moment after spending her whole life (4 yrs) sharing life with my mom's dog. Even though she had some anxiety, Pasha was well cared for and got the attention she loves while we were away. Thank you, Shelley! ~ Amanda & Goce

This was the second time our dog stayed with Shelley and the experience was wonderful. Shelley was very gracious when I had told her the wrong time about when I would pick him up. I was off by an hour and while I would never take advantage of that, she was accommodating of my mistake. Thanks again, Shelley!

Shelley is great! We had a nice meet and greet and she asked me all kinds of questions about our dog's likes and dislikes, habits, feeding times, etc. I knew after our meet and greet that I would be comfortable leaving our dog under her care. He just spent two nights with Shelley and came home a happy pup! She sent me photos while we were gone of him at play and sleeping in her bed. We will use Shelley's services again. It is a comfort knowing our dog will be happy and well taken care of when he is with her.

Thanks, Shelley~!

Lucky had a great stay with Shelley C. Shelley kept us informed with frequent pictures and emails. He liked being part of her family and playing with her dogs, Daisy and Frankie. Daily walks, visits with friends, playtime, and sleeping like one of gang were thoroughly enjoyed.
We were so pleased to have found Shelley C. Our vacation was enjoyed because we didn't have to worry about Lucky staying in an impersonal kennel.

Thank you Shelley C., her pups, family and Dog Vaycay. What a terrific organization.
Pam Feliksiak, Brian McLaughlin, and mostly Lucky!

Lucy loves to go to Shelley's. She owns dogs like Lucy and so she knows the ins and outs of the breed. She takes them swimming, goes on walks, plays with them and the best part, just like at home, she gets to sleep on the bed!

I would recommend Shelley to anyone looking for a host to board their mini dachshund.

Shelley was a great sitter for Lucy! She updated me often on how Lucy was doing and sent cute pictures of the dogs playing. We will definitely use Shelley again.
Shelley does a great job taking care of our corgi. She gets to take walks with Shelley's dogs and we get nearly daily updates which is really nice. Our dog always seems to be her usual self when we pick her up so that tells me she is well-treated. This is the second time we have used Shelley's service and would do so again. Thank you Shelley!

Lucy loves to stay at Shelley's house. As soon as she sees her house she starts getting excited. Shelley pays special attention to each dog she has, goes for walks and to the dog park. Her home is always clean and there are lots of toys and a nice back yard for them to play in.

Shelley took excellent care of our Shirley! We loved the photo updates.1
Shelley is awesome, she was available on short notice and was happy to take our two dachshunds! She even sent us photo updates and let us know what they were doing while we were gone. She is very easy to work with and our dogs came home tired and happy!! Shelley is highly recommended!

Shelley was a great host!. Lucy got to sleep on the bed (as she does at home), went to the same dog park we go to and she got to go swimming. I would recommend her to everyone.
It was perfect. We enjoyed all the photos and updates everyday. We would leave Cricket with Shelley again. She seems to care a lot for her guests. We feel Cricket enjoyed her stay with Shelly's two dachshunds, Frankie & Daisy.
Shelley is awesome! We'd use her every time if we lived closer but no matter what, she is always great with our Dachshunds!
Wonderful as always. Shelley is the best
I was soooo nervous to leave my 10yr old Yorkie Sasha with a stranger for the first time. Shelley offered to have a meet an greet to make me feel more comfortable, that helped A LOT. When we left our meet and greet we knew that she was the perfect pet sitter :) She sent me pictures and emails daily to let me know how my fur baby was doing. We will for sure have Shelley pet sit again. I highly recommend her. :)

Shelley did a fantastic job with our corgi, Laney. She went on walks, got along with Shelley's dogs and came home the same happy, easy-going dog. It was really helpful that Shelley was able to do a meet and greet with our dog, too. Thanks Shelley for taking good care of her and for the wonderful lemons, too!

Awesome
Shelley did a great job with my dog, even sent me little updates as to how she was doing. We will use her services again if she is available.
Shelley and puppy friends are wonderful. Addie was so comfortable and happy and thats all I care about. The atmosphere she provides for the dogs is truly a Doggy Vacation.
As usual, Shelley took excellent care of my pups! Kept me updated on their daily activities and sent pics of them. I feel confidant that they're in very good hands when she takes care of them.
Our experience was pawtastic! Shelley had quite the time with our high maintenance little lady and went above and beyond anyone's expectations to make the situation a great one. We've had pets for years and never had this kind effort or communication. Next trip we are sending the dog and staying with Shelley ourselves! I'm almost hesitant to leave a review and risk her not having space available for us but such an amazing experience and woman can not go un-noted! Rest assured that this is hands down a great place for your furbaby.

Shelly was very accommodating and watched my dog, Cowboy, at the last minute. She sent me numerous emails and pictures. I was very pleased with his care.
Shelley is extremely conscientious -she makes sure she knows as much about your dog as possible, in order to provide the care and comfort you want your dog to have. She e-mailed me regularly to let me know how my pups were doing and even sent photos. For the first time, I was able to leave them and know they were in very competent and loving hands!

Shelley's home was clean, neat and very dog friendly. She was very concerned for our Cavalier and gave us updates daily and great pics while she was out and about with him.

She was very trustworthy, caring and thoughtful to us and our dog. Would definitely recommend.
