Shane is THE BEST! Our young golden who has a lot of energy and needs a lot of exercise had a fantastic stay with Shane. He gave her exactly what she needed and took such great care of her. It was a relief to know she was in good hands. She also had a lot of fun playing with Shane's dog Maverick in their awesome fenced in backyard.

Shane sent photo and video updates to us which we loved.

It was so nice coming back from our vacation to a happy, tired, well exercised dog. Would 100% recommend!!!!

Excellent in every way. Our German shepherd loved her vacay. Shane understands dogs.
Shane and family are the best. They really go above and beyond to make your dog comfortable and send lots of updates (pics and videos) throughout the stay. I'd recommend in a heartbeat!
Great experience. Shane communicated very well with me throughout Nyla's stay and sent pictures. The request process was very easy and dropoff/pickup was simple as well. Will use again.
Our first experience using DogVacay and we were most pleased with Shane and the dogs loved him too!
Shane is great with our Dogs and they didn't want to come home. Highly recommend him!!
This is my first time using Dogvacay and found Shane. I can't tell you how great Shane and his family were to my dog. I got a text everyday with the status of my dog and how she was doing. Shane and his family took care of my dog as thought it was there own. He played with her, took her to the dog park, went on a bike ride and gave her a lot of care and attention. We couldn't have been happier. I'm so lucky to find a dog lover like Shane and will definitely be using him again and again! Thank you Shane!!

Shane is the perfect dog sitter. He really cares about dogs and understands your dog's personality. I highly recommend Shane. He took care of our 1 year old Aussie Shepherd for 10 days and made sure he felt at home.
Shane and his family were wonderful! His pup Maverick and Solomon became good buddies. They were able to tire each other out. Shane was very friendly and easy to feel at ease with. While Solomon was staying with him he made sure to provide updates on a periodic basis. When I went to pick up Solomon, his adorable children were hugging and holding onto Solomon. It was the sweetest thing!! I could tell he had a great time with this family and I wouldn't hesitate to bring him back again for another stay!

I can't stress enough how much relief I feel when Shane accepts a booking request. My dog can be skittish and shy with other people but run's to Shane like an old friend.

While we were away, Shane sent pictures and updates to let us know our "Special Needs" pup was safe and happy.

If you're looking for a good home for your dog, I highly recommend Shane. He's calm, easy to talk to and genuinely loves animals.

Shane was great! Super professional--always kept us updated throughout the week and you can tell he truly loves dogs. Our two pups came home exhausted because they were being taken out skateboarding and playing with Shane's family dog. We'll definitely be "visiting" Shane again.

Shane was one of our best DogVacay hosts yet. I felt completely comfortable leaving our pup with him and his family. He sent lots of picture and video updates while we were away and I know Winnie enjoyed her time there. We would definitely book with Shane again in the future!

Our dog has had one sitter for over 6 years but she moved. Our search for a new sitter was disheartening. However Shane made the transition easy with his genuine care and good nature. Our first daycare with him was great. He sent updates and had good praises for our dog. He was accommodating and eased our concerns. We will definitely use Shane again and have already booked the next boarding!

Very accommodating and Laika came back smiling and happy
Shane was wonderful. At the meet and great I could immediately tell that he takes a great deal of pride in caring for animals. More than that, it was obvious that he genuinely loved my dog Ophelia. I was able to fulfill my last-minute travel obligations without having to worry about my beloved dog. Of course I knew that Ophie was safe, but I also knew that because of Shane, his children, and his dog Maverick, Ophie felt the comfort of being in a loving home. She was certainly happy to see me when I returned, but I am convinced that she did not feel abandoned, lonely, or sad while I was away. Shane even occasionally sent some photos and video of Ophie playing and exploring with her new pal, Maverick. I absolutely recommend Shane to care for your dog.

I would recommend anyone to Shane - he was great! Responded extremely quickly once I submitted the request and was prompt in answering all questions. He sent me texts throughout the time keeping me posted on our dog, which was greatly appreciated.
Shane is very flexible with the drop off/pick up time. He's a great host! Jack had a great week-end with Shane.
Shane was a fantastic sitter!

My dog isn't the easiest to win over but Shane won him over with ease. He is flexible on schedule and comfortable administering prescriptions.

It's nice to know your dog is safe and calm in someone's home. I highly recommend Shane's care!

I hired Shane to care for my cats when my neighbor (who usually looks after them) was not available. He handled them with ease and kept my place tidy as well. Thanks so much!
Rebooked with Shane and again we strongly feel that our little ones were in the best of hands. Our pups are always getting into trouble and can be a handful and a half sometimes, but Shane took everything in stride (and kept us contentedly informed all along the way). He goes the extra mile and it's so clear that it's because he genuinely loves dogs. Shane, thank you again for making these out of town jaunts so much more guilt free - we know that Bailey and Blaze are home away from home.

Shane was an incredible host from start to finish. We were scrambling to find a suitable boarding option (at the last minute!) for our two lil terriers, Bailey and Blaze. They have never been apart from us or family and I'll admit I was nervous. Without time to do a meet and greet or walk through, Shane made us very comfortable with his setup and answered all my questions with record speed. They came home smelling great (thanks Shane for the baths!), worn out from a fun time, and I am already booking their next stay with Shane! Don't hesitate - just book with Shane - you won't regret it!

Shane did an amazing job caring for my dog on the 4th. He knew it was going to be kind of loud so he put music on for Shady. Shady has to be given medication once a day for cushings and Shane had no problem giving him the meds. His house is perfect for a dog. My 4 legged son was extremely happy when I picked him up. I could tell he had a great time. We will definitely by using Shane again. Thanks so much for treating my dog like your own!
