About Shelby

Our Home
Conveniently located on a quiet tree lined block in midtown Hoboken, our cozy 2 bedroom living space is a stone's throw away from Columbus Park, Elysian Dog Park & Church Square Dog Park. We are also a five minute walk from Hoboken's beautiful waterfront landscape.

Our Story
My husband Jeff and I are animal lovers. We have owned 2 dogs over the course of our marriage and we consider our animals to be family members, not pets. We go above and beyond to spoil our furchildren with constant attention and cuddles. We love going on long family walks with our current furchild, Gracie. We also frequent the many dog parks in Hoboken 4-5 times a week as weather permits.

Our Schedule
We both work full time jobs. We would mainly be available to host your furbaby over night on weekends only. We are also open to providing walking services on weeknights and weekends. We want to agree to host your furbaby during times when we can provide them with all of the love and attention they deserve during their stay away from home.

During The Vacay
You can expect that we will take the absolute best care of your baby while you are away. We will provide all treats, toys, and comfy places for them to rest their head. I also make homemade (and of course doggy safe) frozen treats for the pooches. We do ask that you provide their own food as to not upset their daily routine or diet. We will supervise all feedings, ensuring to adhere to whatever feeding schedule they are used to. They will be taken on several walks a day during their vacation. We will also be spending plenty of time at one (or all!) of Hoboken's newly renovated dog parks! If weather permits and your dog enjoys car rides, we will take them on an adventure to explore Liberty State Park and other areas surrounding Hoboken.

You can expect to receive numerous updates a day via SMS pics, Instagram, Facebook or Email. We are happy to Facetime with you so that you can check in on your pooch real-time.

Add ons
We are happy to provide transportation services for our overnight guests. We will pickup within a 5 mile radius at a rate of $10/each way.

We are happy to provide a relaxing bath at a rate of $15 & up. Specific rates can be agreed upon booking depending on the size of your pooch, length of coat, etc.

We also provide walking services on weeknights and weekends. Rates are $15/30 mins or $25/60 mins.
