About Shana

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have had dogs most of my life, and have done pet sitting for several years. I have a rescued cocker spaniel/golden retreiver, and two cats. I can provide a loving clean home for your pet. I have a guest room I use for the pets to sleep in, I do not have crates, and if you wish to have your animal crated, please provide crate. I typically put my dog out in the yard around 6am, and walk every 2-3 hours after that, with a nice long walk before bedtime. I would do the same for your pet, unless they have a different routine they need to follow.

I really enjoy animals and having them in my home. I have a fenced back yard for them to run. I don't normally leave home for more than an hour when I am pet sitting.

I can send daily updates and pictures, or however often you would like to receive them.

My dog is not comfortable around Pit Bulls, so I cannot accept ANY Pit Bulls. Please keep in mind I also have 2 cats in the house, and if your dog is aggressive towards cats, I will not be able to take them.

Shana took Charlie on very short notice. We had a long drive and she was very patient with our arrival time. Charlie left and came happy. Will definitely use again.
Shana is the best. Always sends me pics and even let me park my car there last time while I traveled up to Maryland!
Shana is the only person I trust with my pets and have used her many times! Every visit with Shana is truly a vacation for my dog. She gets to play and all the loving she could ever want :) I HIGHLY recommend Shana.
I could tell by my communications with Shana that she was enjoying Wilson and that he was being well cared for. He even received a Christmas present while there.. AWESOME SITTER
Shana was great. She was able to watch our dog on a holiday. I would definitely recommend her and I will definitley book with her again.
Shana was fantastic. Timely, helpful and caring. Buddha (English Bulldog) loved her doggie pool and playing with her own dog. Thanks Shana. See you soon!
My dog is a senior now with some interesting quirks. He did really well with Shana and I could tell when I returned that he was content. She is very flexible and I would use her again.
Awesome sitter. Brownie looked so happy in his pictures. Will definitely bring Brownie back to her.
Experience was great. Prince loved being with Shana and her dog. My new doggy daycare.
My pup Mack had a great time at Shana's! She kept me updated and sent photos of Mack having a great time! I will definitely use her for any future trips!
Shana is very understanding, and has a great passion for animals! Sent photos and was flexible with me during my loves stay. I found my perfect dog sitter, hope to keep her in our lives for future stays!
Shana is great!! It is the first time I use Dog Vacay so I was a little bit nervious about that.

Shana took care of Tina as she was her puppy :)

My dog is not a big fan of people or dogs but she felt very comfortable with Shana and her dog, which for me it was awesome.

I told Shana she will be my pet sitter every time I need to travel.
Shana is amazing!! When I dropped off my baby he just took off with her and was very excited to be there. Thank you very much again ????????
Bentley stayed with shana for 9 days. The reservation was super easy to make even though it was last minute. Shana sent me many updates through out the day including pictures and videos! When we finally came to pick up Bentley he didnt even wanna leave. Would recommend her 100%
I love Shana. She is so good to my dog. Always sends my wife and I updates and my pup always has a great time.
First time leaving my dog with someone, and it couldn't have gone better thanks to Shana! Would definitely use her again.
Efficient and easy to work with. We trusted her with our babies and will use her services again in the future. Thanks so much Shana!
Right from the meet & greet she presented herself as a true dog lover and no doubt a lover of what she was there for ..... To make a new 4 legged friend and that's exactly what Shana did
Was a pleasure knowing we found a sitter that enabled us to proceed with our plans for the night without having to worry about our lovable triton
If the question here is do we recommend Shana to other pet owners the answer is Absouletly without a ting of a doubt !!!!!
Thank you Shana
Shana is amazing and helped us out on super short notice during our vacation in Ft. Lauderdale. We did t want to place our pups in a boarding kennel, in cages...Our puppies were well-cared for overnight in Shana's home! Shana is fabulous and highly recommended!
Shana was very receptive and took good care of of our dog. She messaged me often and kept me up to date during our time away. We would definitely recommend and book with Shana again!
Shana was a great host! Mischa had a great time and was super well behaved since I came back from my trip. She was able to meet her dog that happened to be the same breed. I was a little worried to leave Mischa at first because she still had stiches in from getting fixed, but Shana made sure to take care of her and make sure they stayed in tact! Shana sent pictures of the dogs during her visit there. It was so cute! I would recommend her to everyone! This was my first time using DocVacay and would recommend it to everyone, especially Shana.
Shana did an excellent job of watching our 2 babies (dog and a cat), it was very important to us to have someone who will take care, give attention, and love to the babies. The house is very clean, the dog and the cat have allot of space to play.
Absolutely great sitter! Def booking if I need a dog sitter again.
2nd time- knocked it out of the park.
Patient and caring, Loki was thoroughly exhausted, healthy and happy. He had some really good social time, learned to deal with a cat, and roll around and play with others.
I was informed via emails throughout, and truly had a peace of mind while out of the country for 10 (!) days.
Not a hint of tiredness when I picked him up, the family really loves my lil man. They say, love is priceless.
Shana is awesome! She was super helpful with our last minute plans and did everything she could to help us. Mogi always have a good time. She is very good with keeping in touch, sending pics and letting us know how Mogi is doing. Shanna is definitely a keeper :)
She was beyond amazing. I made a last minute appointment the day of and she was so kind. She sent pictures of my babies they were so happy and relaxed. She had plenty of toys for them to play with. She went on long walks with them and was patient. She even washed their doggy bowls and packed them up when I picked them up! She is absolutely darling and I honestly cannot wait to travel again knowing that I can be peaceful if she is watching my babies.
Taking my dogs to Shana was like taking the kids to Nanna house! ! They loved it. Shana is amazing at what she does plus she really cares for your pet as if it was her own. Her and her family were awesome in every way. I will visit her every time I'm her way! ! Thank you for sharing your beautiful big home with us.
Amazing! Roxy had a great stay!
Shana did a great job. Coco was with with her for a week and was as good as new when we picked her up. Shana's own dog was a good playmate. Coco slept all day when we brought her home. She really seemed to enjoy her stay. Could not have been better.
Shana responded right away, and she was very nice. It was my first time leaving my dog with anyone, but she kept me updated and made me feel at ease. I would definitely recommend her.
Shana is so nice, quick and sweet.
She immediately responded with a "CAN DO" attitude.
She took the extra mile to come over for the meet n greet, pick-up and even the drop off! (I was beyond exhausted)
Luckily, we are only 5 min. away.
She and her husband were great. Real trusty pet-loving friends. It showed as I got the texts trying to give Loki healthy snacks, and plenty of yard time!
Honestly, the pictures were so good, there should be a Portrait Studio charge. :)
Loki came back exhausted, happy and cuddly.

Shana, you're my first call next time!
Shana was awesome with our dog. She took good care of her, took her out for walks everyday, and kept us updated. We will definitely come back. Thanks Shana!
Shana was amazing to my pup! I needed to find someone to watch her for 12 days, which was stressful. I had two meet and greets set up with rover. On the first one, a dog they were watching attacked my dog just days before I had to leave. This left her extremely nervous and stunned. On the second one, the lady's unneutered dog kept aggressively trying to mount Bella, making her even more uncomfortable and aggressive towards him. I was stressed to find someone on such short notice (three days before I was leaving). I found and contacted Shana and had a meet and greet in her house the day before I was leaving. Bella was so comfortable in her house and she loved her cats and dog. My dog has a hilarious personality and she is definitely a princess! Shana sent me pictures and an update at least once per day, which really eased my fears and made me comfortable! She was very flexible with drop off and pick up when my flight was rescheduled! Bella had an amazing time and was taken care of so well. You can tell that Shana is really an animal lover! She had forgotten to give me my dog's leash back (my fault for not checking for everything before I left), so she drove all the way to my house and dropped it off with other goodies! Thanks again so much, Shana!!!
Simply the best, constant update, made me worry free. My dog had a great time with Shana! Highly recommended.
Shana was great with Molly. She replied very quickly to all my inquiries. She snapped pictures of Molly a few times during her stay and it looks like Molly enjoyed herself. I am very pleased!
Where do I begin?! Shana is amazing. We felt extremely comfortable with her from the moment we met her at her home, where our dog Athena would be staying. It was immediately obvious how caring, patient and an animal lover she is and Athena, who is usually shy at first, felt so comfortable and relaxed right away.

We were very happy to see Athena would have such a safe and comfortable place to stay, and a nice big yard to play.

Over the 9 days Shana cared for Athena, she sent us photos and updates on how she was doing. It really made us feel at ease in knowing Athena was in good hands.

Athena was happy and relaxed when we picked her up and you could tell she was well cared for.

Plus! While we were out of town an emergency came up with our cats at home. When asked, Shana didn't hesitate to jump in and help. We will always be grateful for her and definitely continue to leave our pets in her care in the future!

Thank you Shana!
Everything went perfect! !
Shana was great!
We were very nervous about leaving our dog Charlei for the first time. Shana took great care of him. She also sent us daily updates with pictures which really put us at ease while we were away.
Overall a great experience. We were very comfortable with Shana. Charlei had a great time as well ! We will definitely use Shana again in the future.
Thank you for taking such great care of our Charlei !
GREAT EXPERIENCE!!! Shana is the perfect dog sitter :). This was my first time using a sitter over traditional boarding. She accepted a last minute request and was very pleasant and accommodating. She and Mater bonded quickly upon arrival which was a good sign and her home is peaceful and serene. I liked that she provided daily updates and pics. I will definitely use her service again and I HIGHLY recommend her to others!! Thanks Shana.
