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 7 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 canine back home with me to Philadelphia! Certainly, it was a tough transition 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 an excellent sitter! She was communicative, accommodating, and extremely reliable. I'm the first to admit that my dog is not the easiest to handle, but Shoval had no problem! He came back happy and tired. I will definitely be using Shoval in the future. Highly recommend!
I've had Bueller stay with many sitters on DogVacay but this one was by far the toughest yet. Bueller is still a puppy, so I'll be the first to admit that he's pretty hyper but I've never had a sitter call me and ask me to come pick him up in the middle of his stay. It made me extremely uncomfortable and nervous and I spent the rest of the morning concerned. I think Shoval is better fit to watch older, more lethargic dogs. I definitely would not recommend her for puppies or dogs that wish to be played with/need attention.
Shoval was great with my dog, and was very flexible with pickup arrangements. Would definitely stay with her again.
