About Shannon

I am a young professional that works from home and owner of a sweet 4 year old English Bulldog named Cali. I have owned and cared for various breeds for over 20 years and am an absolute dog lover!

I am a fan and care for all dog breeds, and if you happen to be the owner of a French or English bulldog, rest assured that I understand and am specialized in the unique needs of this breed, having one of my own!

Cali gets along with all dogs and loves company, so consider us for your next get-away!

I offer overnight dog boarding and doggy day-care at my home, at this time. I have a wonderful, enclosed outdoor space for day-time doggy lounging and live within walking distance to several terrific dog parks!

I require a meet-and-greet prior to the first board/day care. I can only care for pups that are not aggressive, housebroken, don't mark their territory and are not prone to scratching doors or causing property damage.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Shannon and her English Bulldog, Cali are looking for some great company to share their cozy spot in Sunset Park, Santa Monica. Shannon has cared for many different types of dogs for many years including looking after Cali and her buddies at home.

Cali is one of my favorite guests in my own home, especially since she is great with my other dogs. She is eager to play and immediately considers other pups her family. Don't let her bulldog noises fool you, she's all love.

Their home comes complete with a closed porch for shade and sun as well as a closed in patio in the back. This is sure to be a friendly vacation spot for your pup to have some fun in your absence.

Shannon is great! She takes great care of our Frenchie Charlie and sends picture updates throughout the day. Will definitely book with Shannon (and Cali) again!
Shannon was such a great host! After my dog sitter cancelled she was able to accept my last minute reservation request. My dog is older and Shannon took great care of his needs. While I was out of town she contacted me to make sure his behavior was normal. When I got home I found an sweet note and cute gift for my dog.

If I could give Shannon any more stars I would. She helped me out last minute and not only was she amazing with my bulldog she is an incredibly nice person.

I would highly recommend Shannon to any dog owner and especially anyone that has a bulldog. She really knows the breed and how to take care of them.

I will definitely be using Shannon from here on out to help watch Romeo when I can't.

Shannon to the rescue! Thanks again for always watching Chloe for me
What can I say? SKyla is a regular at Shannon & Cali's house. It is so nice to have a caregiver that can understand a bulldog's needs, and Shannon gives that extra special attention to my bully. We call her all the time, and she is by far our favorite doggy baby watcher in the Hood of SM. :)

Shannon is Skyla's favorite , and is available to help me out in a pinch almost all of the time, seriously she is so amazing. Skyla , my frenchie, absolutely adores going to play with Cali,... my dog can be a real brat sometimes so I am so happy we found Shannon & Cali because skyla gets along with them so well!!

I pretty much call Shannon exclusively when I am going out of town or on short trips. She is the absolute best, and so good about flexibility, even when I am a mess and running late all of the place. Also, my dog has allergies and needs to take her allergy pills, and I can trust Shannon will give them to her , no problem. Skyla my Frenchie, is so happy to go over there and play with Cali, Shannon's big mama Bulldog. Skyla was actually super upset when she came home because she liked being with her friend so much! Shannon's house is bulldog-friendly and that means so much to a bully owner, especially because those animals can be SO high maintenance!
She included a cute card with some pix of Skyla and her friends in it on Skyla's return, and that was just a small example of how she goes out of her way to make the whole experience really personal and professional! A+++++++

Shannon was awesome! Hudson and Bear both had a great time!
My 15-month-old French Bulldog, Olive, had a great time with Shannon and Cali. She can't wait to go back and spend more time with them!
Shannon has watched Skyla several times , and she is our go-to westside sitter ! Skyla had some friends who also needed sitting as we were all going out of town for a wedding, and Shannon accomodated them very last minute, which she didn't have to do but was nice of her ! She is definitely an expert on bulldogs and frenchies and I recommend my friends use her as well, as it's super tough finding appropriate care and good people out here that you can trust! xo

Once again, words can not express how thankful I am for Shannon and Cali looking after my baby girl Chloe. Chloe has special medical conditions that leave my worried when I am away , however Shannon eases my mind knowing that Chloe is in good hands with her. Shannon is very professional and curtious and I highly reccomend her

Skyla is a returning pet for Shannon - we have gone to her before to look after Skyla. She did such a fantastic job , again, making my frenchie feel at home and at ease. She gets along really well with Cali, who is a friendly mama-dog for Skyla. She ate all her food , got plenty of play time, and Shannon was supppppper cool when I needed a flexible schedule for pick up. I use Shannon whenever I plan on going out of town! She is the absolute best!

I've boarded my maltipoo Lexi now twice with Shannon and am planning on going for round 3 next! She literally treated my dog as her own and sent me pics to update me on how she was doing. Her place is clean and dog friendly and she has a great little yard for the dogs to play in.

Nothing but good things to say about my experience boarding Lexi with Shannon!!!

We found Shannon on the local filter ... she lives in an amazing bungalow in SM - very clean environment , super dog consciously designed. She herself has a bulldog, so I trusted her with my own bully (who has been known to overheat as these dogs get hot more easily than other breeds). She had little fans set up around their sleeping area , and a nice grassy yard area, and enclosed space for the dogs. Cali, her bully , was a friendly 4 yr old dog and was playful with my babe. Shannon (her human lol) was ultra professional , had a great demeanor and attitude , and took my care-instructions and ran with them! That means a lot to me , because I can be a picky dog mama and my child has.... special needs , being high energy with skin allergies.
Honestly, I am booking her again right away for the dates I know I will need her, because skyla had such a great experience with her / cali & in their lovely home. Super happy to get my dog back today to see that she even ate all her food I left her with (I left her with extra.. she ate the whole thing). A+ + + will be using her anytime I need to leave as long as she's available !

Kudos to Shannon and Cali for watching over my little girl again. Chloe was jumping for joy of excitment when she went on her dogvacay!
Fantastic! Lot of fun, very easy to work with.
I can't say enough about how amazing Shannon was! She not only accepted my urgent/last minute booking request, she was the sweetest and most accommodating sitter I've ever had. Lily loved spending the weekend with her and her adorable bulldog, Cali. Thanks again, Shannon :)

I would highly reccomend Shannon, she watched my french bulldog while I was away on vacation and made me feel at ease knowing my little girl was safe. Shannon also has a bulldog so it was a big help that she knows this breed. I knew my baby was safe and sound and have a freind to play with .....5 stars for shannon!

Shannon looked after my toy poodle this weekend. She was excellent - very caring and responsible, and she has a great manner with dogs. My dog is very shy and scared in new situations but she did really well with Shannon and her dog Cali. This is my first time using DogVacay and I will definitely use Shannon again!

Shannon is great! Not only does she treat your dog like her own she texts pics and sends your dog home with a treat!! Lexi will definitely be back!!
I had a great experience with Shannon, my pup Noodle did too! She is very thorough and excellent at communicating before the scheduled dogsitting and during. When I arrived I was in a bit of a hurry but she still showed me her space and introduced my dog to hers. I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with her. She also sent me text and photo updates so I could see how Noodle was doing while I was away. She also has a nice outdoor space so the dogs can get outside some which is a nice added perk. I will definitely use Shannon again in the future.

This was my first time booking with DogVacay and what a wonderful experience!! I chose Shannon based on her location, availability and experience with many breeds. Anyone that has a bulldog knows how to care for dogs above and beyond the norm!

Shannon was absolutely amazing. She sent me tons of picture photos of both my dogs, Max and Lucy, and helped me rest easy that they were not only well taken care of, but having tons of fun during their stay with Shannon!

Shannon's bulldog Cali is so sweet and funny! She got along beautifully with my pups and it was evident in the pictures Shannon provided!

I highly recommend boarding your pup with Shannon and Cali! They will be well taken care of and have a fabulous time. I only want to book with Shannon again, as it was a great experience. Highly recommend and will be using DogVacay for my next dog boarding excursion!

If you want your dog in great hands, Shannon is your best bet!! She treats my pug, Riley, like he's her own and shows him so much love and attention while I'm away, I never have to worry! Riley and Shannon's adorably sweet lil' English bulldog Cali get along so well, it makes me feel like Riley's getting a vacation too! Shannon sends me picture updates and they're always of Riley on dog walks, at dog parks or generally having a great time in her care. The last time I picked him up, I had to pry him out of her house, he did not want to leave!!

Shannon is the best, goes above and beyond, everytime. She takes great care to wipe Riley's lil' pug face wrinkles for me and keep his face clean. Riley is also a bit high maintenance and requires that, as well as dog lotion for his nose to keep it from drying out (like chapstick) and is sensitive to heat due to breathing constraints. Shannon not only goes the extra mile to care for him, but she also understands his needs having a breed with similar requirements of her own.

Shannon is my top go-to for dog-sitting and I highly recommend her, you will love her just as much as I do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
