About Shakia

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
ONLY ACCEPT DOGS UNDER 25lbs
IN MY HOME. HOWEVER, I WILL ACCEPT LARGE DOGS BUT I WILL HAVE TO OFFER MY SERVICE IN YOUR HOME. ($30) UNLESS YOUR DOG IS COMFORTABLE WITH A SMALL APARTMENT. A MEET AND GREET IS REQUIRED FOR LARGE DOGS STAYING IN MY HOME.

First and foremost, I'm an animal lover.
I have natural animal magnetism.
I'm caring, loving, intelligent, respectful, reliable, trustworthy, bubbly, neat, funny...

Your dog(s) and I:
I aim to keep your dog as happy and as comfortable as possible while you're away.
Your dog will be spoiled in a good way, with plenty of playtime, exercise, and cuddles.
I can follow particular requests/cater to special needs when it comes to your dog's care.
I can send you daily progress emails with photos and our activities.
I'm used to fulfilling even the "strangest" pet parent requests (such as daily poo reports).
When it comes to grooming, I don't mind brushing or combing
I can bathe your dog(s) if they don't mind being bathed (with the exception of expressing anal glands).
I also know how to brush teeth with both the finger toothbrush, and the long toothbrush, if you have either.

When booking me as your sitter:
To me, pets are equivalent to children.
I am a stay-at-your-home type of sitter.
*This is especially important for those with pets who have separation anxiety issues..
When you book me, your pet(s) get 100% of my attention.

I will be as close to your pet(s) as you want/need me to be while you are away.
Their comfort, happiness, and sanity are important to me.
I'm available for long-term stays when booked in advance.
My rates start at $20 per night


My experience:
I've grown up with various breeds of dogs as pets (ranging from toy breeds to large breeds).

I have been a dog lover all my life. I promise you that when your precious dog boards at my home he/she will feel very comfortable. I have a medium puppy who would love to make a new friend. I do live in a small apartment. But everyday your four legged family member and I will go for an hour exercise a day. We will go to a quiet dog friendly field. I also like to take about 3-4 walks a day for about 15 minutes.

Shakia is a wonderful person and pet care giver. I use her services every time I leave town and my fur-babies are always given the best care. She is very attentive and keeps me updated on their well-being.
Even though my dog had never stayed with other dogs or even met Shakia before her stay, I can tell she fell in love with her. I'll definitely book her again in the future!
She is competent, knowledgeable and sensitive. I will definitely use her again.
