About Shelley

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
As the calendar may not always reflect our actual availability, please contact us about the dates you're interested in.

My husband and I have a lifetime of experience as dog owners and dog lovers. I work from home and my husband is retired so your pets spend very little time alone. Our home is in the Highland's area of Edmonton and we have a large, dog-safe, fenced yard. We use no toxic products (i.e. herbicides, harsh chemicals) on our yard or in our house.

Your dog(s) will be welcomed and made part of the family while with us, and will have the run of our home and yard, as well as lots of love and attention. The Highlands area is great for dog walking and we are a short distance from several off-leash areas, should that be suitable for your dog.

We have two dogs of our own, a Chocolate Lab and a Collie-cross (Ziggy and Josie), and an older female Cat (Whisper). We have also previously provided foster care for several dogs with the SCARS (Second Chance Animal Rescue) organization here in Alberta.

We want to give every dog that stays with us lots of individual attention. For that reason, we are only able to take from one to a maximum of three dogs at any one time. We are open to multiple dogs from the same household. We have no breed restrictions, however we ask that your dog(s) be sociable and friendly with other dogs and house-trained. If your dog is over 1 yr. old, we prefer that they be spayed or neutered, but will consider intact dogs.

We will accommodate dogs with special needs (i.e. medications, special diet etc.) if we are able to do so. There will be an extra charge for very young dogs, and possibly for dogs requiring special care, depending on what is needed.

We are able to offer In-Your-Home care visits for your pets if you live near our area. Please contact me if you'd like to discuss this.

We may be able to provide other services such as pick-up/drop-off, Vet visits etc. if needed.

We do prefer a Meet and Greet before any bookings to make sure everyone is a good fit.

My dogs spent the day with Shelley and everything was perfect. They felt right at home. Her and her husband are both such wonderful people
Shelley and Dan are always excellent hosts. We always feel comfortable leaving our dog with them and she always enjoys her time there.
Chloe had a great vacation in the care of Shelley and Dan, who were successful in making her feel at home. Pampered with their attention and all the fun and companionship from her new 4 legged friends. I was able to enjoy my time away knowing their genuine love of animals would ensure her needs would be met in a caring and safe manner. I appreciated Shelley's update during my trip reassuring me that Chloe was doing well and enjoying herself. On my return Chloe greeted me at the door with her friend Ziggy, both tails wagging....happy and looking healthy.
I'm grateful that Shelley was able to take care of Chloe on such short notice. It's been an extremely positive experience!
