About Shoval

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, my name is Shoval :)
I am more than happy to provide a comfortable and safe home away from home for your precious dog. I understand the importance of finding a reliable dog sitter whom you can trust!
I guarantee that your baby will get lots of love, be well taken care of, and enjoy long walks and play time while you're gone. I live in an apartment in center city with my 8-year old female Belgian Malinois. She is calm, great with other dogs, and loves having new friends stay over!

I have 6 years of experience caring for dogs. I began in 2010 as a combat solider and commander in the k9 unit of the IDF, working with and training explosive and weapons material dogs. After my 3 year service, I was fortunate enough to bring my beautiful k9 back home with me to Philadelphia! Naturally, it was a tough transition coming from the military to a comfortable and retired city-living lifestyle. Together, we worked extremely hard on her training and socialization skills, and I can truly say that all of our effort paid off. I am so proud of her and all that she has been through to become the incredible and friendly dog that she is!

I worked for a dog walking company for 9 months in the Rittenhouse area. I provided individual exercise to over 20 dogs, specialized in training for obedience and aggression, fulfilled every clients' specific instructions and demands, and recorded and updated each pet profile daily.
I was also an intern at the Penn Vet Working Dog Center for 6 months.
Today, I am finishing up my last year at Drexel University!

I am so excited to meet your pup, and I promise that he/she will be in good hands!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have!

Shoval was great with my dog, and was very flexible with pickup arrangements. Would definitely stay with her again.
Shoval was fantastic! Very flexible with drop off / pick up times and our dog clearly liked her!
So happy I chose Shoval to watch over my pup! She was super responsive and updated me during the stay that everything was going well. It was my first experience leaving Winnie with anyone but friends or family, so I was a bit nervous going into it, but she made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. I definitely would go to her again if I come back to Philly!
Shoval is fantastic! Zeke is always happy to see her and her dog. Great communication. A++
The best!
Shoval was the perfect sitter to look after our sweet pooch during the day for a couple of hours while we were sightseeing in Philly! Definitely recommend.
Outstanding experience, all around. Highly recommended.
Shoval is an awesome sitter! She took great care of our mini goldendoodle Remy and sent daily photos and updates. Remy enjoyed playing with her dog Gula and left Shoval's happy and tired after a weekend of exercise and playtime!
Shoval exudes competence and Gula is beyond sweet! It was clear both human and dog value discipline and consistency in their lifestyle. The apartment is spacious and clean and Shoval gladly accepted the additional page of neurotic notes and instructions we provided. Shoval was flexible and accommodating with timing and also sent regular updates. My 18-month old labradoodle Maximus came home absolutely exhausted from all the fun he had. Glad we found our go-to sitter in Philly!
Shoval was very good with my dog, a rescue who is very, very skittish. When he was picked up, he was quite relaxed. I will certainly call upon her again is I am in Philadelphia.
Shoval was wonderful! She was very reliable and communicated quickly. I highly recommend her service. I'll be using her in the future!
Great experience, my pup was in good hands.
Shoval was very communicative and my dog Zeke was very happy when I got back from my trip. Highly recommended!
Shoval was great with Lenny! She sent us videos and pictures while we were away and it was very clear that he was happy and not missing us at all! She was very accommodating when our flight got delayed and when she forgot to put something in his bag after picking him up, she drove to our apartment the next day to drop it off! We will definitely be calling Shoval next time we go away!
She took great care of my pup!
Shoval was so amazing with our dog Brody! We were getting married and needed a dog sitter, but also really wanted pictures with our pet on the day of the wedding. Without hesitation, Shoval was willing to come out and meet us with Brody so we could take a few pics with our pup! She was super kind and sent us pics every day as she sat for him during the week. We would definitely use Shoval again to dogsit our little guy!
Shoval was awesome with my pup. She was really flexible about pickup and dropoff times as my schedule changed. She also sent really great pictures and videos that helped put my mind at ease that our dogs were getting along. I would highly recommend booking with her!
Shoval was great! Our in-laws were really comfortable leaving their puppy with her while they visited and he was super tired after. Would definitely use her again!
Shoval was a phenomenal sitter! She was responsive to all our messages in a timely manner and was very flexible when it came to finding a time to drop off or pick up our pup. Not to mention, that Elliot absolutely loved his time with her and her pup. He came back happy as can be and tired from all the fun! I highly recommend Shoval as a dogsitter.
Shoval was an awesome sitter for Amber. Not only was she super easy and flexible to schedule drop off and pickup with, but it is apparent that Amber had a great time there playing with her pup. She has been sleeping for almost two days. I'd highly recommend Shoval.
