About Shine

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am an experienced pet sitter, and I will love and pamper your furry companions as if they were my own. I've had years of pet-sitting experience, and I've taken care of countless pups and kitties, quite often all at the same time. I have two cats at home, who grew up around dogs and know their way around them, and a rabbit that is currently living with my parents. I love meeting new animals and take the best pet photography with my phone. Can't wait to meet you and your fluffy pals! I can take care of dogs, cats, bunnies, and am open to other critters you may have!

Our puppy was well treated at his stay with Shine. Due to heavy rains and road congestion, we arrived about 5 hours later than scheduled, and it was not a problem. Shine was not at home when we arrived, but her mom came to great us and take our dog in. The house was very clean, and we had a good feeling leaving the dog with her. Every day, Shine would send me an update, along with few pictures of our pup, to let us know that he was doing well. We liked the updates very much. Recommending this place.
Shine and her parents took fantastic care of our two pups. They are now quite willing, and infact eager to stay with her! I definitely will leave my two dogs with her next time I go out of town.
Shine was awesome! She was super accommodating with the pick up and drop off times and took such good care of our baby! We will definitely request her again! :)
Shine took great care of our two kitties while we were away! We got updates every time she came to check in on them. If you're in the Monterey area, we would highly recommend her and we will definitely be booking again! Thanks, Shine!
Shine and her family did such an awesome job that my pup didn't want to come back home! Thanks Shine for taking such great care of my baby!
Shine took awesome care of our Dog, he was extremely happy coming home. She was very communicative throughout our dog's stay with her. Would recommend her to any friend.
Excellent. Murphy had a great time.
Zeus came back happy and I got some nice picture updates from Shine, both while he was lounging and while he was having fun. I won't hesitate to take him back for more doggy-sitting. Thanks, Shine!
Based on all the pictures, and a couple of videos, the girls had a great time with Shine. They looked very at home and comfortable.
Shine was a perfect sitter in every way - she communicated ahead of time and during Lola's stay, and sent pictures of her throughout the time there. We were so relieved to find someone close to our hotel to leave Lola with while we golfed for two days in Monterey. I highly recommend Shine's services - she is compassionate, loving and knowledgeable about pets in general and dogs, specifically. We will definitely use her again when we are in the area.
Shine is incredibly awesome, so kind and patient with our fur baby. Shine made our vacation so much adventurous by being available for us to come and get our girl to join us on hikes and beach play as we wished. She's awesome and I would recommend her to everyone. Thank you Shine!!
I boarded my Frenchie for an overnight stay at Shine. Shine and I communicated well prior and the day of my pup stayed with her. She is patient, kind, and attentive to my pup during the stay.
Visiting a new city and wondering what to do with our Lilly while in the Aquarium had me nervous. Shine made it easy. Responded quickly to my request and questions. Once I dropped Lilly off, she seemed comfortable. Plus, throughout the day, Shine provided photos and updates. When we picked Lilly up, she seemed relax and ticketed out. That walk around the park worked. Thanks Shine.
Shine was awesome! Our Basset Hound, Waffles, had a great time. She made a much better and more loving environment than any dog kennel he's ever stayed at. He got lots of attention and was a happy boy when I came to pick him up. We will definitely reach out to Shine again. I highly recommend her!!!
Meeting Shine was a Godsend! She helped me out in a crunch by taking care of my 2 little dogs. Shine was very flexible about drop off and pick up times and the dogs seemed completely happy and at peace with her. I whole heartedly recommend Shine, she is kind and conscientious.

Shine took care of our dog for 2 days and everything was great. She has a few cats and our dog got along well with them. She was very good with the communication and we will use her again in the Monterey area.
This was Duke's first stay with Shine. The photos she posted looked like he had a great time! He came back happy and healthy. :)
Shine was awesome! She sent me updates and pictures throughout my dog's stay. I will definitely be bringing my dog back to Shine!
Very nice and attentive young lady. She communicated with us frequently. Would definitely use her again.
