About Shawn

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Koko's Dog House! We'd love to shower your dog with love and affection as if he or she were ours while you are away.

We have a very dog friendly home where the dogs have the run of the bottom floor. There is a large picture window with a shelf that's perfect for sunbating, napping, and keeping an eye on what's happening in the neighborhood. We also have a large fenced in yard with lots of toys to play with and stay active. When it's time to settle down, there are several dog beds to choose from, a comfy couch, and recliners with loving laps to cuddle close. They can also opt to crash anywhere on our laminate floor for a cool spot, or use a crate if your pet prefers their own space.

Our dog, Kokomo, is a 90 lb gentle giant. She's an Anatolian Shepard mix who loves EVERYONE!! Koko welcomes new guest pups and helps them settle in to our pack routines. She is always ready to play and loves to get everyone running around her imaginary race track in our back yard.

I am home all day and can provide care for dogs of all ages, give medications, and maintain special diets. During their stay, your dog will be insured through DogVacay's premium insurance and we live about 5 minutes from a participating VCA Animal Hospital with 24 hour emergency vet services.

My husband and I are licensed dog fosters. We bring them to our home and treat them like family until they are adopted. When we accept a guest booking, we take great care to make sure all pack members' temperaments blend so everyone has a comfortable stay. We are only able to accept reservations for dogs who are spayed or neutered and up to date on their shots. (Proof of rabies vaccination is required at time of drop off. ) We also recommend your pet be current on flea/tick and heart worm treatments.

With your pet here at Koko's Dog House, you can relax and know your dog is in a loving home. We can send updates and pics of your pet so you'll know your dog is safe and happy.
We look forward to meeting you and your pooch!

Payton had yet another AWESOME stay with Koko and friends! We are SO lucky to have such a great place for her to stay when she can't be with us. Thank you!
Shawn always does an amazing job taking care of our pups. I'm a typical pet parent and am very picky about who I leave my dogs with, but I never worry about them at her house. I have a very high energy Belgian Tervuren and he always comes home tired out. If your looking for a responsible, knowledgeable caretaker for your dogs look no further. I also love that Shawn and Roland give back to the animals and are very involved with Rover Rescue saving and fostering dogs.
Shawn was great. I left my Border Collie (Striker) with her for 6 days. It's obvious that Striker likes Shawn and is comfortable at her house. She's very responsive to messages and keep me posted with pictures. Thank you Shawn!
Devon had a great stay at Koko's. He came home happy and tired from playing with all the dogs. Shawn and her husband were great and even accommodated a surprise extra night.
Shawn and her husband were great... our two big (and bigger) boys had a lot of fun in daycare! We would definitely book with her again in the future.
My 2 year old Lab had a wonderful stay at Shawn's place. I was very happy with our initial meet and greet visit as well. Shawn showed me around her house and answered all my questions very patiently.

This is my first time using DogVacay hence I was pretty nervous. When I looked at their home, I could immediately tell that it was set-up to host dogs. I was also able to text and communicate with Shawn anytime and received photo and video updates as needed.

I did 4 to 5 meet and greet sessions before choosing Shawn. Dog owners please do your due diligence. There was one host who refused to let me meet his dog or show me around his house which was not set-up for dogs at all and speck clean. I think he puts the dogs in the basement the minute the owner leaves and goes to work.
We left our newly adopted dog, Leia, with Shawn for a wedding we had to go to. We had a meet and greet with her and her other two dogs, Koko and Luna, before we booked with her, and I'm so glad we did! I felt so comfortable when my husband dropped her off the morning we left, and knew she was in wonderful care! Shawn sent picture and video texts to us while we were on vacation, and Leia was clearly having an awesome time. When we picked her up a few days later, she was happy, worn out, and took a nap as soon as we got home. Apparently Leia and Luna were the best of friends and wore each other out! We are booking another trip we have this spring, and will definitely have Shawn watch Leia again. Shawn actually taught us some things about Leia that we didn't know, and encouraged me to train her to run on our treadmill to get some more energy out. Genius! (She's now up to 6 mph during interval training!) Thank you Shawn and family for taking care of our sweet pup!
Very happy to have found Shawn! After having met with various sitters, Shawn and her husband were the clear choice! Even though there were suitable sitters much closer in location, Shawn is definitely worth the drive! She and her husband are true dog lovers. They are both knowledgeable and thorough about taking care of your fur babies. They are loving yet firm and you couldn't ask for better. They make certain all the dogs personalities mesh and treat your babies well. Great host, highly recommend!!
Till enjoyed her stay! Thanks again!
My dog is always happy and relaxed when I pick him up. Shawn is really kind, organized and super with all the dogs.
Great sitter. Pumpkin was there for a week and did well with the other dogs. Our dog ended up with an ear infection and Shawn was able to keep up with the meds so she could be a happy puppy now!
Our dog was in good hands! He got plenty of exercise running around with other dogs in the fenced-in backyard.
Shawn was so kind and listen to all our questions...this was the first time we left our baby. She sent me lots of pictures via e-mail and always got back to me when I txtd her. Her home is clean week organised and Koko is a big sweetie!! Miss Olive was happy to be there. We can't wait to use her again
We had a great experience having Luke stay with Shawn K! She was professional, warm, kind, and accommodating. Shawn is also very knowledgeable about dogs, and her love of dogs shows in all of her actions with them. I really couldn't have asked for a better experience for our furry family member. I found working with Shawn on the details of Luke's stay to be very easy, and I plan to use her services again when we next need a sitter for our Luke.
Our girl Tillie had a great stay! Shawn kept us posted to how her stay was going, and made me feel assured that Tillie would be in good hands. I now have a place I feel comfortable having her stay at.
ALWAYS a wonderful experience! Thank you so much for taking care of our Payton like she's your own!!
Excellent experience for Tiger stay with Shawn; he was fine and enjoyed his stay with her. We look forward to have Tiger stay with Shawn in near future. Thanks Shawn for taking care of Tiger for us.
Shawn is SO awesome! Love the updates she provides on Payton.
It was good experience. Tiger was happy and enjoyed his stay.
My dog Sam absolutely LOVES staying at Shawn's. Sam and her dog Koko get along great and are always very happy to see each other. Shawn sent me pictures of my dog while I was gone and took very good care of her. I would highly recommend Shawn for anyone looking for a place to keep their dog!
My two Huskys had a wonderful time in their sleepover, they were very well taken care of and Shawn and her husband were very helpful and nice. Their in house dog Koko was the sweetest girl and helped make my pups first stay a good one. I will be booking them for my future needs.
Our dog Duke felt immediately comfortable and had a great time with Shawn and the other dogs. We are so happy we found her!
My dog loved staying at Shawn's. She not only is a huge dog lover, but she has her whole first floor and yard set up for them. Her dog, Coco is also very sweet and fun.
Our pup Milo loved his stay at Shawn's. She is an awesome host and took good care of him. Milo is definitely going back for more fun and games soon.
Awesome! Super attentive folks. Shawn was so accommodating to our schedule. We have absolutely found Bella's new home-away-from-home!
My dog seemed to thoroughly enjoy his stay with Shawn. He was happy, energetic, and playing with the other dogs when I picked him up. Shawn sent me a couple pictures of him while I was on vacation, which was very nice. I recommend others use her service.
SO very pleased with the care Payton received at Shawn's house. Could not be happier!!
Shawn and Roland were wonderful. While Finn had separation problems making it not workable for the upcoming vacation, we hope to be able to try again at another time. He IS a handful!
Absolutely great experience. Gus came home happy and settled, so muich more than with other sitters and boarding facility. Shawn was well prepared, clearly loves dogs and was flexible when we had travel difficulties. Great experience...would definitely feel comfortable leaving Gus there again and recommending to others.
Charlie had a great time at Shawn's. Great place for social dogs, he played all weekend!
