About Shae

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My fiance and I have a great house with a backyard in South Philly (Bella Vista) with a huge park around the corner and a dog park a few minutes away as well (we'll only take your dog to the dog park with your permission). We like being outdoors and taking long walks a few times a day. We also run a few times a week and would be happy to take your dog for a run with us and Remy. Our dog gets along well with other dogs and has a great personality. I work very close to home and sometimes even work from home. When I do go to work, I often stop home for lunch. Your dog will have a great time with us and be treated like a member of the family.

This was my first time using dog vacay and Shae was excellent!
I am always very nervous to leave my dog Maddie with others as she is very attached to me and once ran away when I left her with a friend. However, I felt so comfortable leaving Maddie with Shae! She was so warm and loving to Maddie right away and kept me updated with pictures and texts throughout Maddie's stay so I knew she was in good hands! Maddie can be a pill on the leash sometimes, but Shae was so accommodating and patient with my pup! Will definitely go back to Shae for future visits!
Shae was great! She was very communicative while we were away and sent us pictures of our pup (who was all smiles!). Great experience! We definitely recommend Shae!
Shae was amazing with my dog, Charlie!! She sent me picture updates and kept me informed about how he was doing! Charlie LOVED them and was exhausted when he came back home. Definitely my go-to sitters!
Shae was more than amazing with our TWO puppies. She kept them happy for a week and provided daily updates and pictures of our pups. Will choose her for our next dog-free adventure as we know they are in safe and loving hands!
Highly recommended! Shae was great w/my dog, even with her special needs from eye drops to daily pills, Shae took great care of her. Shae also sent constant updates and photos that were much appreciated and I loved seeing my pup doing well while I was away.
Shae was beyond immaculate! From the first second, our pup felt right at home with her, and that didn't change for the entire weekend that Shae watched her. The constant text message and photo updates were perfect to let us know how our pup was doing over the weekend.

Shae is extraordinarily thoughtful in planning to make sure your dog's stay is just what he or she needs, and she also does everything she can while watching him or her to make sure the pup (and parents) have the best experience possible!
This was our second vacay with Shae! Our dog, Don Q, absolutely loves going over and hanging out with Shae, Donald and Remy and whomever else is on vacay. Shae takes care of him like she takes care of her own dog. He get tons of love and cuddles and nice long walks. He is always exhausted when he comes home which is always a good sign in our book! Shae sends us tons of pictures and responds quickly to texts; we always know what he's up to with her :) Her home is clean,the dogs have access to water whenever they want(if they're allowed it), she is very accommodating if there is something your dog needs, and they get plenty of exercise. We set up an initial meet-n-greet with her before booking.
My girlfriend and I were going to Virginia for a wedding and we needed a sitter for our 14 week old puppy. We picked Shae based off of the great reviews we read and I have to say, i'm really glad we did. She was amazing with our puppy! She kept us updated with pictures daily which was my girlfriends favorite part. We knew he was in good hands. When we go away we will definitely use Shae again to watch our pup. If you're looking for someone who will love and care for your dog while you're away I definitely recommend Shae.
EXCELLENT!! I highly recommend Shae and her family to anyone seeking a caring, safe, happy petsitter! Blueberry loved his stay at Shae's and is excited to go back there soon. Thanks Shae & Remy!
Awesome couple there, took good care of my puppy when I was visiting from out of town. Will be using them more often!
Our dog had a fantastic time with Shae. She loved every second of her stay with Shae and her finance. Adding pick-up and drop-off service to our request was a definite bonus. Will we use her services again? ABSOLUTELY!!!!!!!
Shae greeted us into her home, and my somewhat aloof dog instantly took to her and her warmth, and was happy and relaxed being with her even by the time I left.

She provided wonderful and detailed updates about his stay (as well as adorable pictures), and I picked up my joyful and relaxed dog, who had not only made himself at home in her house, but integrated into the rest of the pack of dogs who were staying with her.

In addition to being a clear lover of dogs, and experienced in making them feel comfortable and safe, Shae is also adept with humans and was lovely to communicate with! We will certainly be returning to Shae next time we're in Philadelphia!
I'm a little embarrassed, I think Shae took better care of Toby than we do. He came home totally relaxed and obviously happy.

She rearranged her schedule on vacation to pick him up and worked with our schedule to drop him off. We received daily updates, and it was clear he was having more fun there than at home :)

We intend to use her in the future, and we highly recommend her to others (unless its the dates we want).
Shae did a awesome job watching my two pups. Loved the many pictures and updates that she sent. At pick up time, both my dogs passed out even before we got home.
