About Shone

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I am a 29 year-old dog-lover in the North End of Halifax. I have a degree in Sociology and work a couple hours/week as a Substitute Teacher at a preschool.

Most of my experience is with large dogs, though I am comfortable caring for pets of all breeds and sizes.

I enjoy physical activity and especially running. If your dog requires extra physical activity - we could be a good fit! I do not have a closed-in backyard of my own, but spend a lot of my time outdoors.

I offer a free consultation ("meet and greet") to get to know you and your pet's needs.

My focus is on dogs - but I love pets of all kinds. Feel free to contact me with a specific request!

Shone was a great host and Charlie had a great time whenever he spent the day with Shone. Shone was always accessible by messaging and he sent updates and photos of Charlie during the day, which really helps to perk up a work day! He would take Charlie out for walks around the neighborhood and let him take naps on his couch. We would definitely recommend Shone :)

All I can say is that I came home to a very happy pup and isn't that what it's all about! I do know that when we walk by shone's house my pup wants to go visit!! Everything went very smoothly, I couldn't be happier!
My dog (Gizmo) is eleven years old, anxious and epileptic, so I had many concerns leaving him for nine days. Shone was very attentive when listening to instructions and took notes of all my dog's needs. Throughout my vacation he kept me posted with pictures and text messages letting me know exactly how Gizmo was doing, which was really comforting. Gizmo always looked cozy and happy, so I think he had a good time with Shone. Shone spent a lot of time outside with Gizmo rather than long walks (as he cannot handle them anymore), and had no problem feeding him raw food or administering medications. When my flights got delayed and cancelled I thought Gizmo would have to stay another night unexpectedly, and Shone was happy to accommodate this if need be. I would highly recommend Shone to watch your dog while you are away. I will be looking to him again if I need a dog sitter in the future.

Shone was quick to respond to our request, which was great since we needed a place for Cheerio the next morning. I think our dog had a good day with Shone. Shone was very gracious about coping with Cheerio's challenge of walking nicely on the leash (she pulls).

Shone was a God send! He graciously stayed at my place for a week and took care of my two fur babies at the last minute. Brady and Howie had fun in the pictures he sent, and they were very relaxed when I came home. He left my house clean and even washed the laundry and sheets he used! I highly recommend Shone for his dog sitting services and I will use him again in the future. Thanks Shone!
