About Shannon

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Shannon and I am a full time law student at American University. I recently moved to DC and I started volunteering at the Washington Humane Society to get some stress free puppy time! I have experience fostering dogs, both healthy and sick and have experience providing oral medication. Recently due to time constraints, I have been pet sitting for some other foster parents and find it so rewarding. I have a fenced in yard behind my apartment building and live next to Glover Park which is perfect for long walks and squirrel watching. I only have classes a few times a week, so I have plenty of time and attention to give to visiting pups!

Shannon was just wonderful! She gave Bella lots of attention, took her on long walks, and gave us regular updates and pictures. It was very clear that she has a lot of experience with dogs and really loves them. She is also very responsible.The entire time we felt that our dog was in the best hands possible.
What can I say? Shannon certainly knows dogs well, and is both kind and relaxed around them. This made leaving out big guy with her very easy! I will definitely be using her services again!
Shannon was great. Very flexible scheduling and Riggs came back happy and healthy. Would recommend.
Shannon took such great care of our pup. Will definitely book with her again!
I knew Shannon would be a fantastic sitter for Bridie from the moment I met her. Her love of dogs and familiarity with their quirks was evident as we talked. She also proved very flexible with a last-minute schedule change. Bridie was relaxed and happy when I picked her up. We hope this is the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship.
Shannon has watched my dog several times, and I had good experiences with her before but I was disappointed about her communications during this stay. I appreciated the text message updates I received which indicated everything was going well, but when I picked up my dog at 9pm I was surprised that she had still not given him his evening meal and medication. Shannon also let me know that he had two scratches from running into a thorn bush (which is totally understandable, he does that with me too), but when I got home and took a look myself these were fairly deep cuts with blood matted into his fur. I asked when this occurred and she responded that "The scratches on his ear happened Friday, so they are fairly recent." I wish that Shannon had let me know in her message on Friday that this happened so I could decide if he needed veterinary care or if I needed to adjust my schedule to be home earlier. I also would have appreciated photos that showed the extent of the injury instead of a message that all was well.
Shannon was very quick to accept my request and totally unfazed by the fact that it was a large, very active German Shepherd 'Bella'.
Shannon was very flexible with collection and drop off times and the meet and greet went very smoothly. She kindly sent me some photos and a few updates of how Bella was doing while I was away.
I am so happy to have found someone who loves the company of Bella and vice versa.
I will with certainty use Shannon again for another stay.
Shannon was fantastic and Ryder was very happy with his stay. Thanks a ton!
Shannon is sweet and great! She was willing to do a meet and greet last minute before my dog walk the next day. I have only had Shannon do a dog walk for my two pups but she was on time, friendly, and seemed to enjoy my pups, even though they were acting up a bit with a new person. I would have booked dog walking with her again but she unfortunately was booked! But I will absolutely contact her again for future services including boarding. I would feel good leaving my babies with her. Thanks much Shannon!
Shannon was great with my dogs and very understanding of their specific needs and issues.
Shannon took wonderful care of my dog and I'm looking forward to booking with her again!
Shannon was great, very accommodating and my pup had a great time!
Shannon was very communicative and great with our yellow lab! She sent photos and assured us she was well taken care of. We will definitely use Shannon again!
Shannon was terrific! Very responsive to my texts and emails. My dog had a great time with her and she obviously got a ton of exercise. She came home and immediately took a lap! I wouldn't hesitate to use Shannon's services again.
Shannon was excellent! Our dog really enjoyed his stay. She sent us pictures that showed just how relaxed he was. Shannon has a sweet disposition and clearly cares deeply about animals. She even asked if she could make him treats! We will definitely look to send our dog on vacation with her next time we need someone to take care of him.
