About Shannon

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Dietz Dog Sitting!

As pet owners, we KNOW how hard it is to leave your fur child while traveling. My husband and I are the ones who suffer from separation anxiety when we have to travel, or leave our dogs for a day. That is why we enjoy pet sitting, to help make stressful travel easier for both you and your pet.

Greg and I have been avid lovers of animals since we were young. I grew up around many cats, dogs, horses, and even chickens and ducks. As a teen, I would often pet sit for family friends at their homes. Greg and I bought our first house this year, so we have brought the pet sitting home and have been working with Dogvacay since September 2016.

We share our home with two Labradors, Emma and Shania, and a senior cat, Ashley. We live in a ranch on nearly half an acre with a fully fenced in backyard. Our dogs LOVE running laps around our backyard, and I'm sure your dog(s) will too! Our home is located in Springfield Township and has a combination of carpeting, wood, and tile flooring with only six steps from our back porch to our back yard.

I graduated from Kent State University and I work full time locally, 8-6 Mon-Fri. My Husband served four years in the Marine Corp and is currently aspiring to create a career working from home. Because of our schedules, either him or myself will ALWAYS be home with the dogs and able to send you updates and/or pictures. We do not have any restrictions regarding animals on furniture (Shania is sitting on my lap as I type this), however, if you would like us to follow specific guidelines for your dogs, we would be more than willing to abide.For meet-n-greets we have found it works best to introduce our dogs off leash at Wingfoot Lake Dog Park, which is only a short drive from our home.

As mentioned earlier, I have an elderly cat. Ashley is very good about holding her own around excited dogs, however we ask if your dog is aggressive towards small animals, please continue your search for a willing sitter. Ashley does have a gated room she can retreat to if needed, but I will not put any of my animals in harms way. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to meeting you and your fur babies!

Shannon was great with our two dogs. They must have had a great time because they came home and went right to bed. I would highly recommend her.
Definitely a great experience leaving Monty for a week with Shannon, Greg and their dogs and cat. They kept us updated daily on how Monty was doing with pictures and messages. They were very accommodating since the very beginning with the meet-and-greet all the way up to picking him up. Monty came home exhausted but doing great! Definitely recommend them!! Thank you!
This was our first time "vacaying" our 11 month old, because we didn't feel comfortable with bordering her at a kennel. We met the owners and their dogs at a park beforehand to make sure all the pups got along well, and then we went back to see their place. The large fenced-in backyard was fantastic and we really got a feel that our pup would be taken care of as their own. It was simple and easy and we couldn't have asked for a better home for our dog to stay at! : )
Shannon and Greg were again wonderful to work with! They are easy going, and understanding of our dogs needs .... As well as the needs of the parents! Shannon is very easy to communicate with and we appreciated her letting us know when one of our dogs needed medication given for thunderstorm anxiety. We received many photo updates as requested, and even video clips! Loved the updates ! We were able to relax without any concerns. Both dogs came home very tired, but unstressed and happy. We highly recommend them, and will definitely use them again!
After our initial meet n greet, which went well, we decided to book one night as a test for both our benefit and to see if the dogs fit into their household. We picked them up tired and happy today. Shannon and her husband are very kind and a pleasure to work with. They sent a couple of pictures and assured us that our " kids " were doing well. It seems that both the dogs were comfortable and came home un-stressed. We will be scheduling with them again very soon.
Bridgett loved her stay with Shannon, Greg and furr children!!! I think she was sad to leave! So nice to be able to leave her and not have to worry at all! Thank you for loving on my furr child!!!
