About Shannon

I'm a children's book author and I work from home, so your canine or feline family member(s) will have constant companionship. I do have one doggy and two cats, but we can separate the cats into a closed off portion of the house, if your doggy or kitty isn't fond of felines.

My indoor doggy is a medium size female Chihuahua mix (up-to-date on shots and spayed) that enjoys playing with other pups.

I live in a doggy friendly neighborhood and enjoy taking my pup for strolls around the block. Would your doggy like to join us?

Prefer to doggy sit smaller dogs that have been neutered or spayed, but am open to accommodating larger breeds. I love watching mellow, senior pups.

Will also kitty sit your indoor feline. I love cats and have plenty of indoor space for he or she to nuzzle into and relax.

Rate listed is for one pet, but can work out a rate for multiples.

I'm INSURED with the most COMPREHENSIVE insurance available, so rest assured your pet will be well looked after.

There are also SURVEILLANCE cameras in plain view on the premises around the almost ACRE of property for added SECURITY. All pets are never left unattended outdoors without supervision. They will spend the majority of their time inside playing throughout the house in a SAFE environment.

Where's Morongo Valley? It's only 12 minutes from Palm Springs. For convenience, I can also meet canine guests at the Pilot Family Travel Center at the Indian Canyon exit in Palm Springs at no additional charge for those staying in the desert and unfamiliar with the area for transport.

I can also pick up/deliver from/to YOUR location & transport for an additional $15 fee each way.

I can also give you $10 off your first booking via this site. Just message me for the code before you make your reservation.

Shannon is just plain awesome. My dogs love it there. And, she follows my instructions in taking care of the dogs. Highly recommend. As for DogVacay, I even put Shannon and DogVacay in my Holiday letter.
Shannon was a gracious host. She kept us posted with pictures and texts throughout Gizzy stay. He left happy and we left with a piece of mind that gizzy has a home whenever we are in the desert. Thank you Shannon!!
Shannon was a fantastic host to Ms. Bo Jangles! She has slept for the past 24 hours straight - so she was definitely having a BLAST! Shannon kept us up-to-date with pictures, text updates, and even a video of the kids playing! We have already scheduled our next Dog Vacay with Shannon... Thank you again!
There are many good reasons for the positive reviews of Shannon. In a word, my experience was nothing short of sensational.

My dogs usually traveled with me, but my newest dog, does not like being in the car. I found the DogVacay site and local host Shannon through the site.

Kudos to DogVacay for their part in making it possible. Their dog host approval process, guarantee, insurance and support ensure consistency and a safe environment for the pets.

I did a meet and greet with Shannon. She, her son and her home set up were perfect. I knew right away that my pets would be treated as if they had been at my home.

Shannon was always very prompt with messages and answers to questions and her communications skills are excellent. At the completion of their stay, I think they would have been perfectly happy to stay with Shannon.

But most important, I know that she treated them as I directed and did not spoil them or change their habits.

I highly recommend Shannon and the DogVacay site.
Our experience with Shannon was nothing short of perfection! We were delighted to have our dog accompany us on our vacation here; however, we needed day care throughout the week. I had reached out to a few hosts, and Shannon immediately put me at ease that our dog would be well cared for at her house. We appreciated her accommodating our fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants schedule and going out of her way to ensure everything went smoothly. Our dog normally is very clingy, and he was excited to return to Shannon's so we think that is an excellent endorsement! I'm also a dog host back home; from a fellow host's perspective, this was truly top notch!!
Shannon was very attentive and took great care of Boozer. From the introductory phone call to the moment we picked up Boozer after our trip, I had piece of mind that Boozer was not only safe, but having lots of fun. I truly appreciated her photo and text updates as well! I will definitely recommend Shannon!!
We left Harry with Shannon for two weeks this past holiday period – his first time staying with her. The whole experience was VERY positive. She’s a friendly open person who communicates easily, obviously likes dogs, her home has a great family atmosphere and the large backyard is fenced in. In the past when we’ve left Harry in a kennel or with a sitter, he would often sulk for a day or two after coming home (“Why did you do that to me?”), but not this time. We take that as a great endorsement of Shannon.

Shannon was so great and immediately made me feel very comfortable with leaving my dog at her house. My husband and I had planned a trip to Palm Desert, and at the last minute, as we were already en route, we found out our dog was not allowed where we were staying. Unfortunately, our dog already happened to be in the car with us, so in a state of panic, I stumbled upon Dogvacay and Shannon. I filled out a form and literally within minutes, received a call from back Shannon. I was so impressed with her prompt response. Within an hour, we were at her house. Throughout the entire weekend, Shannon sent me photo and text updates of my dog, making me feel even more at ease. I was very grateful for Shannon's help especially at such the last minute, and I will definitely recommend and use her again the next time I am in her area.
Shannon and her boys where great. She came to meet us in Palm Desert, and picked up the puppies at a meeting spot on our way to Disney Land. She sent us pictures via e-mail and even printed 3 out for us to take home. I would recommend Shannon as a great Puppy Sitter
