Shelby did a great job with Cooper. It was our first time using this service and we were very happy with how well he was taken care of. Would recommend Shelby to others!
Our 40-pound Pitbull puppy can be quite the handful -he's energetic, always picking things up that he shouldn't, and has no idea how big he is- so we were really nervous about leaving him with a sitter for the first time. We just rescued him from a shelter a month ago and we weren't sure how he was going to do in a stranger's home without us present.

Meeting Shelby in person really helped put us at ease (anyone who can handle a 2 year old child and 3 or more big dogs at the same time is a BOSS, plain and simple), and even though we were still worried about how he'd do without us for the night, she seemed like a great fit for our crazy pup.

We picked him up the next morning and were relieved to hear that he played well with two of the other doggy guests in the backyard, and that he hadn't caused her any trouble or had any anxiety problems during his stay!

This was our first time ever using DogVacay and Shelby made it such a great experience that we would definitely book with her again if the situation called for it!

Thanks again, Shelby!
Quite the busy pet sitter during the holidays, Shelby had approximately 5 dogs total, including my two when my buddies stayed with her.
With this number of dogs I was concerned that one of mine would feel the need to put on his dominance cape.
However Shelby told me they were no problem, although I believe, per Shelby, there may have been a bit of marking taking place between my male and another male in her care.
When I picked my dogs up they were calm around the other dogs and obviously got used to their companions.
Bottom line - I found Shelby and her husband, whom I met, to be calm, friendly, and caring about their charges.
So in Summary:
Good job Shelby and thank you, I will definitely use your services again.
Very Happy! Shelby was awesome, she took a last minute reservation for us. Sent us many pictures throughout the week and answered any question we had. This was our first time using dogvacay and we will be using Shelby for all our needs in the future.
Shelby is very nice and welcoming, Petey and Sammie seemed to have had a good stay. Shelby text me a photo of Sammie sitting on her lap with a message stating that they are doing fine.
Shelby took care of our dog like a pro! She replies quick for status report & pics. With 3 dogs herself, you know she will be able to care for your dog. I will absolutely leave our dog with her again if we need to go out!!!
Shelby did great! Wrigley had a great time and played with her son! She kept a close eye on him and snuggled him plenty he was sad leaving her. Would definitely hire again!
It was our first time using and Shelby was great. Kept us up to date initially and that was wonderful. When we picked up the dog, she was obviously not eating much as she was pretty skinny. We found out she wasn't eating well and wished we would have known sooner. The dog is back in shape and likely she was timid away from home although she liked playing with the other dogs. Much better than a Kennel and would utilize Shelby again. Thanks!
Shelby was very friendly and Archie had a good time!
Thanks Shelby I feel like Bubbles was in good hands with you!
Shelby was great! I interviewed several people before deciding that I felt her home would provide the most comfortable home for our dogs. She was always quick to respond with any questions we had and very responsive.

We had two dogs and left them for an extended stay for 6 weeks, while we were out of the country. It was our first time leaving our dogs with someone they didn't know, and I was very nervous. One of our dogs has anxiety and depression when we leave, but Shelby was great at giving them love, and finding ways to help her eat with a diminished appetite with us leaving. She also provided us with photos and updates while we were gone to help us feel at ease. I would definitely use her again, and would feel comfortable leaving your fur babies with her.
Shelby was great. She is very responsive when asking questions. She sent updates & pictures. I would recommend her to anyone. Thanks again Shelby!
Shelby took our last minute reservation on a holiday weekend. She was very friendly and has a nice home for the dogs to enjoy their stay.
Thank you Shelby
Shelby was great! She was flexible and able to meet us on short notice, she sent updates daily and most importantly, my pups came back happy and healthy!
Highly recommended, thanks for watching the little guy.
Shelby did a great job. Sent me lots of photos and updates, helped put me at ease. Sydney seemed to do just fine, even had her birthday hat put on for her birthday which I missed while I was gone. Ate all her food and took her medications which was impressive as I sometimes have a hard time giving her this. Thank you for watching my furry kid!
Shelby was great. I felt very comfortable leaving my dogs at her place and I was confident that they were safe and happy.
This was my first experience leaving my puppy with a sitter and it was great. Naturally, I was worried with how she would do in someone else's home for an extended period of time, but Shelby was great and Liberty seemed to do very well with her and her family. Definitely inspired confidence for whenever I can't take Liberty with me again.
We felt confident that our dog would be well cared for and Shelby sent pictures and communicated during his stay.
Shelby did an awesome job taking care of Mosby, and was always prompt with her responses.
Shelby was great! We had a last minute trip planned and she was able to accommodate our dog's needs. She was a great host!
Shelby truly loves dogs and took care of our two dogs. She did a great job.
My littles really enjoyed their visit with Shelby. Easy to work with, she was totally flexible on drop-off and pick-up times, and she gave me updates throughout their stay.
Duke and Rambo love Shelby. We have used Shelby a few times. She is great. My dogs are very happy when we pick them up and they are excited when I drop them off. Shelby treats our boys as if they are hers, She keeps up with their spunky attitudes. Thank you Shelby for loving our boys when we can't take them with us. We appreciate you very much.
Moving to Arizona with no friends or relatives is hard! Specially if you're looking for a sweet Dog lover person able to take care of your only kid! I'm my case a HIGH maintenance spoiled female Yorkie.
Shelby and her lovely family were great with Kali! It is clear that she loves dogs!
She is a really sweet person and did a great job communicating and keeping me updated, followed all my instructions, brushed Kali's hair, which is a really hard task.
It was hard to pinpoint pick up time and she was very flexible. Kali had a great time! she even played with other dogs!

Thanks Again Shelby!
Shelby was great with my doggie..i would highly reccomend her services !!! Wonderful place for dogs
Shelby communicated very well and sent pictures of my pup having a great time. I would definitely recommend her! Terry Gallagher
Shelly was a very good host for my dog Toby. It helped my travel be more relaxing knowing he's in a caring home and not a kennel.
Shelby was super friendly and took great care of our lab Dakota. Highly recommend her. Thank you
Shelby and her family are very kind, and they have a nice, clean home in Mesa. The community is gated, so don't forget to ask for the gate code! Our puppy had a great time here, and Shelby sent pictures the first day which was fun to see!

Although the pup was well loved while we were out of town, I lost a star from this experience with the pick up. We had agreed to pick up the dog in the early evening on the day we returned home. The day of, Shelby contacted me to let me know that she would not be home then, and that we needed to meet when she returned at 9:00 PM. This was a little late for us after a long day of travel, but agreed to meet then. When we arrived at 9 the hosts were still not home, and arrived about 40 minutes later while we waited outside with little explanation. This was not a great experience, and next time I would opt to pick up the dog the next day when we were not stressed for time, (or sleep!)

Overall the pup seemed to enjoy his stay, and came home happy, which was the most important part.
Just wonderful !!! are the two words that come to my mind to describe the stay of our pug with Shelby.I would highly recommend Shelby for anybody looking pet sitting services.We received pictures of our dog and messages telling how our dog was doing.Do not think too much just book her.Thanks Shelby again.Will see you soon to drop our dog.
I know our dogs had a great time, because after their excitement to see me, they still went to Shelby for some goodbye pats. :)
Shelby was a great host. Very kind and made me feel at ease leaving my dog for the weekend. She sent lots of pictures, I never had to worry. He was very happy when I picked him up but I think he was disappointed when he came home. I will definitely have Shelby watch my dog again!
We were so pleased with our reservation with Shelby, we had to extend a few days and she was very flexible and pleasant. Book her she is awesome!!! Thanks again Shelby
Although I was initially concerned because my dog had never been away from home before, my fears quickly turned to relief when I received pictures and status updatesl from Shelby. Raven seemed to acclimate quickly to the household and It sounds like she had as good a vacation as I did!
I think Shelby did a great job with the dogs in her care. If I should need to again, I will definitely ask her to watch Raven.
Shelby was amazing! She was so sweet and kind and always put me at ease about my pup with giving me updates and sending pictures even without me asking. I plan on booking with her agin and again as she took such good care of my puppy while I was away. She has a lovely home and a nice size yard that my puppy loved to play around in :) definitely book with Shelby!
Shelby gave me piece of mind while I was on vacation! She updated me everyday with pics and a lovely message of how my dog was doing ! She opens her home and family and makes your dog feel at home !
Shelby and her husband are really great people. She kept me updated everyday on how dewy was doing and what he did. She sent pictures everyday making me miss him more. Dewy did miss there family very much I noticed when brought him home. I highly recommend using shelby because I know I will!!!!
Shelby was great in taking care of our little fluffy. She sent pictures everyday and was really very quick in responding to any questions that we had. We would definitely go back to her and recommend Shelby for any pet sitting needs.
Shelby really took care of our pup and he seemed to have enjoyed his weekend stay with her.

I really appreciated how clean her home is and how well she manages to take care of everyone from her son to the pups that she takes care of.

She doesnt have ay dogs of her own so i was little worried whether my pup would get bored but he seemed fine. Definitely would recommend Shelby to anyone who likes a clean place and loving people who take care of your pup like their own :)
My dog came back smelling great after his bath. Shelby took great care of my dog. She, her husband, and a baby had my Russell Terrier for two weeks. She is a stay at home mother so my dog got 24 hour care and love. She even said she let Scruffy (my dog) sleep on their bed, which is really nice.
Shelby tool care of my 85 pound german hepherd and my 40 pound puppy german shepherd. In addition to one of these dogs being a puppy, they are both a handful. Shelby sent me plenty of pictures and updates and it was such a relief to not have to worry about my dogs while on vacation. I am so thankful Shelby was extremely accommodating and took such good care of my dogs. They had a ton of fun and my dogs will definitely be staying with Shelby when we go out of town again.
Shelby has no dog of her own so she can spend quality time with your dog. Her backyard is nice and clean, your dog will enjoy the staying. I'm so glad that I found her on DogVacay website. Next time we are in Mesa area, we will definitely board our dogs at her place.
Thank you for your loving care. Pepper had two walks and was very very happy. I will be back when in town. Happy to recommend Shelby to anyone !
