About Shelby

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
hi! i am a huge lover of dogs and came across this opportunity to help with your dog/s in your home! i recently adopted a rescue yorkie at the end of feb 2016 and i adore him. he's sort of the boss (don't tell him that, however) and he gets stressed with other dogs in his domain. i would prefer to watch your pet in your own home. i also think its better for the dogs to be in their own homes -- they can be happy and comfortable there.

i am a professional who works in the city and lives in LIC. right now i have a few days where i can work from home. i love taking dogs out for walks and taking them to the dog park to meet other dogs (if that's something you like).

nothing would make me happier than to have a pooch to hang out with while you are on vacation!

Please note that there will be an extra minimal charge for any stays over 24 hour/boarding night -- which we can discuss before you book. Thank you!!

Shelby is wonderful!
Shelby is so great with our dog Damon - he absolutely loves her!
Shelby is absolutely wonderful! Our dog always comes home happy and tired :)
Shelby came over for a puppy visit since my little man is still too small to go outside! I knew just from the initial communications sent back and forth that she was going to be LIC's gift to dog owners and I was 100% correct. Not only is her personality amazing, but her work ethics -- attention to detail, quick response times, and general love for dogs. She texted over pictures and videos after she was done which I thought was a great bonus! My puppy was nice and relaxed when I got home so I can't rave enough about how amazing Shelby is!
As always, Shelby took great care of our guy and was prompt with updates!
Shelby is amazing!! She watched my precious pup Tuco for a weekend and I couldn't be happier. She sent me multiple pictures each day and kept me updated on how Tuco was doing. She made Tuco feel comfortable even though he was nervous about being away from home. Will definitely use her again!
Shelby was absolutely amazing! Damon came back to us happy and calm and clearly had enjoyed himself. Shelby made Damon homemade treats, went on great walks, and showered him with love and attention. We received frequent updates on how Damon was doing.

Shelby is also a really sweet person and made us feel very comfortable leaving Damon with her. She will absolutely be our first call for all future Damon-related needs! We highly recommend her!
Shelby is absolutely the best!!! This was Marvin's second stay with her and he was so excited to see her when I dropped him off. She took such great care of him and even sent him home with home baked treats she made! Don't hesitate to use Shelby if you're looking for someone to look after your furbaby. She dropped Marvin off at our place for us a we were returning later in the day and couldn't pick him up which was awesome of her and a convienient service she offers as well!
Shelby was great with our pup! She sent lots of pictures and updates. She was also very flexible and kind.
Shelby did a great job with our little guy! He was out for frequent walks, she kept him active/entertained throughout the whole day and she sent frequent updates. Our hours are pretty hectic and she is great about accommodating our pup and helping us out...would definitely recommend to anyone!
Shelby was fantastic! She sent photos and updates and let us know that Pru was getting comfortable and making herself at home. Cannot recommend her enough if you want your pup to have a great time while you remain worry free.
Shelby is the absolute best! She took such great care of Marvin while we were away. Shelby sent me updates each day along with photos and videos of what they were up to which I absolutely loved! I highly recommend Shelby if you're looking for someone to care for your pup the way you would. She's funny, kind and amazingly attentive. Marvin felt right at home with her and when we picked him up we could tell he had a great time. She is our go to whenever we go away without him. Shelby = very happy pup!
Shelby was awesome!! Updated me a ton throughout the stay - she sent me a bunch of photos of my dog (14, I just counted) and they were all so adorable.

Shelby lives right by the water in LIC, which is absolutely dog heaven (soo many happy dogs). It was clear my lil pup was having the time of her life and Shelby will definitely be my go-to going forward!
