About Shanann

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I have lived in the Bay Area for 12 years now and have been a pet sitter and dog walker for 10 of those years. I love animals of all kinds and have the skill to watch multiple animals whilst providing love and accommodating the requests of their human companions.

My home is single level, all wood and tile, open floor plan with full access to every room, furniture and a completely closed off back yard. I live on a quiet cul-de-sac, so the vehicular traffic is primarily residents.

My dog pal, Basil, is friendly with all dogs except puppies. I have a toddler who does not torment Mr. Basil & a 10 year old who is experienced with dogs and other pets.

I have a large SUV and know the Bay Area well, from the streets + neighborhoods to the best off and on-leash dog parks with minimal water play to full-on bay water play access. I would take care of your animal companion as if they were my own. I look forward to meeting!

Shanann has a wonderful home and family. She is a stay-at-home mom so all pups get a lot of attention. Because of the young age of her children, she can only accept small dogs at this time. They have a huge fenced in back yard and chickens. Shanann and her family clearly love dogs and want to provide a great experience for all guests!
Shanann always takes great care of our little dog. She always takes her to parks for nice long walks and treats her like one of her own. We will be back for our next vacay!
Shanann was so AMAZING! From the moment we met at her place for the meet and greet and through my dogs stay. Shanann took very good care of Dolce, she sent updates throughout his stay, informed me of his eating patterns and how he was sleeping. When he wasn't eating she asked if he could have sliced turkey. She also made necessary changes to his food when he wasn't eating and it helped.
She took him on daily outings to the dog park and walks. Not only was Shanann great, her entire family was AWESOME and welcomed Dolce into their home. We also loved the big backyard that allows for dogs to get some outside time and potty when needed. We will definitely use Shanann again when we need a sitter, she's AMAZING!
Great experience
Shanann and her family were amazing hosts for Holly for the week she was there. From the first time we met them, they were excited to have her and put all of our anxiety at ease.

Throughout the trip, Shanann constantly updated us with texts and pictures of all the walks and adventures Holly was on. Holly was definitely very tired from all the fun by the time she got home.

We will definitely call on Shanann again when we are need of a place for Holly to stay.
Shanann is caring and kind and is very attuned to my dog's needs. My senior dog was happy and calm after my time away.
Shanann was absolutely amazing! We found out the night before we left for our vacation that Daisy had an ear infection. We quickly messaged Shanann making sure she was comfortable with Daisy still coming over and giving her medicine. Shanann was quick to reply and had experience giving ear medication before. It was a relief! Leaving her while she was sick was very hard at first, but we received daily updates and Daisy was always on the move exploring and playing around. We were super comfortable with leaving Daisy there and totally trust Shanann.
Shanann is a great pet sitter. She is responsible, easy to communicate with, and provides lots of photo updates. Our dog Dolce stayed with her for a weekend and came back calm and mellow. Shanann's house was especially appealing to us because she has a deck and closed off back yard that the dogs can hang out on throughout the day. Dolce can be timid and nervous, and I think Shanann did a great job accommodating her and giving her that little extra attention that she needs. Would recommend Shanann to anyone looking for a reliable and responsible pet sitter. .
Shanann was great with my older, very shy shih tzu. I got several pictures daily and updated with how she was adjusting. She took her to the park, on walks, and let her play in the backyard. I'd highly recommend her to anyone.
Our pup came back exhausted - which is always a great sign! Shanann kept us updated with photos and was very responsive. We'll definitely be staying with her again!
Shanann was great! She has a cozy place and my anxious, 9 year-old poodle mix was very comfortable there. He seemed to enjoy being part of her lovely family for the weekend; soon he gets to go back for a longer stay... Home away from home :).
Our dog Annie has stayed with Shannan on a couple of occasions and always comes home to us happy and exhausted. Thanks for taking good care of our pup!
We love Shannan - she's super responsive, and very friendly. We are very happy to have her as our regular dog walker when we can't be available to give Juno her regular quota.
Our dog, Brother, loved staying with Shanann. From the minute I dropped him off, I knew he would be in good hands.

Shanann treated Brother like he was her own dog. She sent lots of pictures and updates everyday, and Brother looked as happy as I have ever seen him. He has been tired all weekend from all of the activity and fun he had.

I will definitely schedule more vacays with Shanann!
Shanann and her family provided a very loving and happy environment for our dog. Our dog was enfolded into the family and got to have a wonderful experience being in their home as opposed to just being boarded somewhere. Shanann gives the dogs lots of opportunity to be outside with a lovely yard and fun outings. I could not recommend her more highly.
Shannan was very accomodating and flexible with our needs to meet up and arrange logistics. She was good with the dog and easy to work with. We appreciated the photos and updates along the way as well.
We love Shannan - very responsive, easy to work with, and prompt with sending us pictures of our dog when she's out on a walk.
Benny had a great time with Shanann and her family. They have a great home for visiting dogs. We will use their hospitality again for a longer stay next time.
Very responsive, and super friendly. We love Shannan!
Rosie had a great stay with Shanann. Looking forward to our next trip so she can stay again!
Shanann is really accommodating and flexible. I would fully recommend her to anyone who needs a dog sitter! She's excellent!
We, and our dog Maisy could not have been luckier to find Shanann and her family as hosts. After a recent fire in our home, we had to find someone on short notice. Shanann was very flexible and accommodating. Our Aussie's favorite things are hiking and the beach which is what she got to do almost every day. Shanann sent tons of pictures daily. When it was time for her to come home, she was very sad to leave. I can't imagine a better host and we are so grateful to have had her watch Maisy.
Shanann took excellent care of our dog while we were out of town for 5 days. She took her on awesome walks/hikes and sent us lots of photos. After her stay our dog was very relaxed and happy! Great experience!
