About Shuli

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have a large house, and now that our kids are off to college, there is a lot of room.

Our own dog, Max, who is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, has been with us for 12 years, and is accustomed to other dogs visiting us. Our home is suited for smaller dogs, as we allow them to play wherever they like. They are welcome to sleep wherever they are comfortable from our bedroom, to the sunroom to the basement. They are greeted promptly and warmly in the morning with whatever routine they may have.

I currently offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding)! I'd be happy to keep your pup entertained while you're away for the day.

While we understand that an accident may happen, we only host dogs who are HOUSE TRAINED.

We have a very quiet neighborhood not far from Maplewood Park, and I will walk your dog 3-4 times a day.

Our vet, is a 3 minute walk from our house (just in case)

I have been caring for dogs for over 30 years, and love every dog dearly.

I treat all of our guest dogs the same way I treat Max, with love and care.

Policy for weekend or one or two night stays:
If your dog arrives early in the morning for drop off and leaves late in the day/evening for pick up, there will be a $25 day charge added as a custom quote. This policy is only for the very short stays and will not effect stays longer than three or more days.
Thank you for understanding.

I look forward to caring for your dog!

Shuli was a fantastic host! She took exceptional care of our pup and sent many pics and videos - this anxious dog mommy didn't worry a bit! We won't hesitate to book with her again!
Just think Happiness and Love as well as Professionalism when you have been lucky enough to find Shuli on DogVacay. My pooch had a wonderful socialization over Thanksgiving with Shuli's other "guests". There ought to be a movie about them all! She sent my pup home with a hug and kiss. Truly Thankful this holiday!

This is the second time we have used Shuli. Bailey loves being there and playing with other dogs. We will use Shuli again.
Another great stay with Shuli! My dogs are so happy and very much at home with her and they are always excited to go back! Thanks, Shuli
Shuli is great with updates. Our dogs enjoyed the other guests!
Our two dogs get a lot of loving attention from Shuli. She is very responsive and sends lots of updates. They come home very happy.
Another great stay at Shuli's! I receive a lot of photos and videos everyday and I see that my Boston Terrier is having lots of fun going on walks and making new friends. I have booked with Shuli at least 5 times and I have tried other persons in dogvacay but Shuli is the best by far. My dog is very happy to stay there and I will book again for sure.

Lana and I are so happy to have found Shuli. I am always nervous about leaving Lana behind when I need to travel, but Shuli has made life easy for us -- she is very professional, kind, and genuinely loves the dogs she cares for. Thank you Shuli!
Shuli was great as always!
This is the first time we have used dogvacay and we would definitely use Shuli again. Thank you for looking after Bailey.
Another great stay.... thanks Shuli. See you next month.
Shuli is the best! My Molly loves her and they have really gotten to know one another as Molly has stayed with Shuli now many many times! Its her second home shall we say.
Bodhi just had another great vacation at Shuli's! He really loves visiting and we love knowing that Shuli takes such good care of him. We get movies and photos several times a day and when I come to pick him up, I can tell he's enjoyed himself. He knows where we're going as soon as we drive up - that makes me feel really comfortable because I know he is happy to be there.

Shuli is wonderful with Ziggy and all of her guest dogs. I appreciate that Shuli cares so much about Ziggy and he loves her in return. Thank you Shuli!
Layla had a perfect stay with Shuli. I really appreciate all of the messages, photos and videos that Shuli provided. I always felt comfortable that Layla was in good hands. Shuli made sure to work with Layla since she is a very difficult eater and spend the time to try to get her to eat as much as possible. I highly recommend Shuli for your dogs. They will be in good hands!

Cashew spent 2 great days with Shuli! We'll send her there again . Thanks Shuli!
I have a shy cavachon puppy who after minutes felt very comfortable in Shuli's home. This made me feel comfortable leaving Jett in her care. He definitely will be back! Thanks again for treating Jett like your own!
This was my first time using DogVacay, and Shuli was very reassuring as a host. We did an initial meet and greet that let me know my pup would be okay, and She sent regular pictures and videos of the walks and feedings. Not only did this let me know everything was being taken care of, it gave me a regular smile while I was away.

My dog seemed very happy at Shuli's and I could tell she missed the fun when I brought her home. Shuli has a great setup for the dogs and makes sure she only takes the dogs that will get along with others.
Another excellent stay with Shuli. Happy was very happy......Thank you, Shuli.
Shuli is great! She is always our first choice :)
We left Oliver for a week with Shuli and she was wonderful. We love the photos and videos she sends us, especially since this was the longest time we have been away from our pup! Thank you for putting us at ease Shuli!
Very happy with our dog's long stay! This was our dog's second stay and as soon as we arrived I could tell she was happy to be back again. As usual we received photos and videos of our dog on walks and it was good to see! I had peace of mind that she was in professional and caring hands during our time away. I would choose this dogvacay again in a heartbeat!

Mitzi is always happy to stay with Shuli. Shuli is very relaxed & a "dog whisperer". We always feel comfortable as we say goodby to Mitzi knowing she is in good hands. Thanks, Shuli!
Shuli is the best pet sitter we have ever had. She had watched Ripley about 5 or more times. She posts many videos and pictures. Ripley doesn't want to leave!
This is the second time Happy stayed with Shuli. He enjoyed staying with Shuli not only because he had been taken good care but also he could meet different doggie friends and played with them. We are also happy to receive many photos and videos from Shuli everyday that we can totally rely on her care for my Happy. Highly recommended!!

Our Cavapoo Freddie was very happy on his Vacay Shuli sent us lots of photos and videos. Recommended !,
Thank you, Shuli, for a wonderful experience!

Shuli is truly amazing. I can highly recommend her. I had my dog with Shuli for about 6 weeks. It was a difficult selection process to find someone for my dog, especially because my childhood dog died while boarding, allegedly because of refusing to eat.

With Shuli, I immediately felt that it would be a good fit and our dog seemed at ease with her. She took the time to sit down and discuss our needs and get to know my dog. The fact that she lives in my neighborhood was of course a bonus and I thought it would help my dog feel less uprooted. Shuli sent emails with pictures and videos on a daily basis, which was very reassuring. I knew that my dog was in good hands all the time. I am so glad to have found her. I will send my dog to her, hopefully for years to come.

Shuli was amazing! I have never left my dogs in someone else's care in their home but after doing the meet and greet I know my pups were in great hands. I loved receiving daily pictures and videos. I would highly recommend Shuli and will definitely use her again!

5 STARS! Shuli is so wonderful with Ziggy! He enjoys being at her home and loves Shuli! It is great to know that Ziggy is in good hands when I can not be with him. We are so happy to have found Shuli!
What an excellent host --so caring and considerate! Jupiter had a wonderful time and we did too, knowing what great hands he was in. Will definitely be back soon!
Great stay with Shuli. She provided many photo and video updates throughout the stay. Highly recommend.
Shuli always takes great care of our dog - she posts lots of pics and videos but more importantly, she treats our dog like her own. He gets excited when we drive down her street because he knows he'll get lots of attention and have a great little vacation (while we have one of our own!). Highly recommend!

Another great stay with Shuli! Thank you for all of the pictures and videos and for the long walks. Scout and Harper can't wait to stay with you again!
Shuli was wonderful! She took Montauk for his first time at "daycare" and sent pictures and videos all day. She took the time to make him feel comfortable with not only her, but the other dogs. We can't wait to go back next week!
Shuli was kind and professional and attended to every detail. She gave our dog a comfortable home away from home. We highly recommend her dog care services.
Shuli is wonderful and caring with dogs! She gets an A+ from me! My dog found it easy to feel comfortable and fit in with the "pack," receiving lots of tender loving individualized care and lots of walks. We also received several videos and photos throughout the day of my dog, which was fun!

Shuli keeps us updated with plenty of photos and video each day. We know our dogs are always happy and safe, receiving plenty of love and fun!
Shuli give the dogs lots of love and exercise! Plenty of attention and affection! So patient!!!
Shuli is the best! So kind and loving, a warm person!
Shuli has provided outstanding care, attention, and hugs to my dogs. While I was away, Shuli posted numerous and thorough emailed video and picture reports of activities (lots of walks, play and personal attention). Upon my return, my dogs greeted me in good health, happy attitude and lots of wags.

Warm and caring host, Shuli, was excellent not only for our Barnaby, but to all the 4 or 5 dogs under her care. They have the run of several rooms in her house and gets of social time. House is immaculate and well set up for small dogs. We highly recommend and intend to use her services again. Lots of great photos and videos of Barnaby while we were away.

Our dogs love Shuli! She gives them lots of hugs and TLC...they clearly have great affection for her! Shuli is also the best at taking me on frequent walks and sending us lots of updates and photos. Shuli is just the best! Very sweet!!!
Shuli takes the time to get to know each of the dogs she cares for and they really love her! Ziggy does so well while in Shuli's care! We are grateful he has a safe and caring place to go! Thank you, Shuli!
My Boston Terrier puppy had a great stay with Shuli! She stayed during the days for 4 days. During the first three days she was the only dog with Max so she was really pampered. The last day there were 3 other small dogs. She was walked 3 to 4 times a day.
We could see she had a lot of fun via the photos and videos, but also she was really tired on the evenings which is great.
I really recommend Shuli and I will definitely book again next time maybe for an overnight stay.

Shuli is the best!
Yosie loves staying with Shuli! Shuli takes such good care of the dogs and sends nice photos and videos showing the dogs hanging out and on walks.
I have a puppy who likes to be with me a lot but we were looking for someone to take care of our dog, Lola, while we were away. We found Shuli and she was a very good match for our Lola. She was caring and very loving towards dogs. She sent us photos and videos of Lola playing and having fun with the other dogs, so we still felt connected. Overall we had a really good experience.

We have received many services from several hosts of Dogvacay in the past 3-4 years. We are extremely satisfied and happy that we finally found the right host for our dog "Happy". Shuli walked the dogs at least 2-3 times each day and sent us several photos and videos each day. She replied to our message almost immediately when we asked her questions. She tolerated some "accidents" created by our dog. We can tell that our dog - "Happy" was very happy to stay with Shuli and her other dogs during the past 12 days. Shuli is able to handled several dogs at the same time excellently.
Thank you Shuli, You are THE BEST !

This was our dog -Sophie's 3rd visit. Shuli was great as usual. I was concerned about our little girl not eating right when we leave. Shuli put our mind at ease by sending us pictures/videos of her eagerly eating all her food. I highly recommend Shuli. she does an amazing job with the dogs under her care and appropriately responds to your beloved pet's special needs

Thanks for keeping Molly another night, Shuli. You are the best. Molly had a great time and we're looking forward to seeing you again this coming week for yet another extended stay.
Another great stay with Shuli! Loved getting the photos and videos!
Shuli is always my first choice when leaving my Sammers! She's flexible with drop-off and pick-up times and she always sends photos and videos so I can rest assured Sammy is having fun too.
Shuli is the best!!!
Scout and Harper had another great stay! Thanks Shuli, for the videos and pictures. It was great to see them on their walks and relaxing and playing in the house.! We look forward to coming again soon!
Excellent care, lotsa love!!!
Shuli is wonderful with Ziggy. She is very flexible about drop-off/pick up time (especially when there are last minute changes). Ziggy always loves his time with Shuli and Max. Thank you, Shuli!
Hey Shuli.... just a quick note to thank you yet again for hosting Molly over the christmas/new year holidays. As usual, she got the royal treatment and more walks than she could ever wish for! See you again in February.
Thank goodness for Shuli!!! We were half way around the world but could see our happy and healthy girls enjoying their vacay with Shuli!!!
My dogs just spent 10 nights with Shuli and had such a great stay! The experience was perfect for all of us. We had a wonderful meet and great with Shuli and then the dogs' stay went very well. We loved getting updates in the form of videos and pictures during their stay. Thank you, Shuli!

Lana felt comfortable with Shuli right away and I got lots of images and videos of Lana having fun and relaxing. I had last minute travel issues and Shuli was very flexible, which was much appreciated. We will definitely see Shuli again!
Wonderful visit! Shuli is great with Oliver and very reliable.
Our girls always get so much fun and exercise and love with Shul!
The stay was great. Bubba our Maltesse loved it. Shuli kept us informed by video and email every 2-3 hours on his activities and his eating. It was as if we were there with him. Her home was set up to give the dog freedom as if he were in his own home and this made it a stress free situation for our dog. Top recommendation. Thank you Shuli.

Thanks again, Shuli! Bodhi loves his home away from home! We are able to travel without worry because we know Bodhi's so well-cared for. It's really nice to get pictures and little movies. We'll look forward to seeing you again soon in 2016!
See review above. Wholeheartedly recommend! Thanks!
This was the second time we had Shuli watch Ripley. This was a 9 night stay. Ripley had a bit of diarrhea at first but Shuli gave him his medicine and took great care of him. She sent many pics per day and several videos of his walks. He was happy the whole time and I can tell she cared for him just like her own dog. I recommend her to anyone. Angela

I love leaving Sammy with Shuli. She always provides frequent updates with photos and videos. I will definitely use her again next time I travel.
Shuli takes such wonderful care of Oliver! Thank you Shuli!
Oliver had a wonderful time. Shuli is always so wonderful with him. Thank you for taking such good care of our pup Shuli!
Shuli is wonderful with Ziggy and all dogs in her care.
Such a great visit, according to our dogs!!! Lots of exercise, fun & cuddles!
Molly had such a fabulous time.... thanks again, Shuli! She always has such a good time at your house with all her repeat friends that she sees from visit to visit. See you again in December!
Shuli takes great care of our Charlie Brown. Not only does she walk, feed and talk to him with genuine kindness, but she constantly sends videos of it all. This extra effort by her allows us to "stay in touch" with our pet while we are miles away and we love being able to do so.

Thanks, Shuli, for another wonderful weekend! Bodhi had a great time as usual - we'll see you next week!!
Shuli is great...rain or shine or gloom of night, she walks the dogs!
Shuli is the best...so sweet with our dachshunds!
Wonderful as always! We love getting the updates and Shuli is so good with our pup. Thank you so much Shuli!
Shuli communicated frequently with us while taking great care of our dog, Cheeks. She was a wonderful host in all respects.
Shuli is the best! My dog is 13 years old and I can't leave her with just anyone. I have no reservations about leaving her with Shuli. In fact, she probably takes even better care of my dog than I do! This isn't just a place you board your dog, it's a home where someone truly loves and cares for your dog. Shuli even sends photos and videos of your pet...multiple times a day! I am so grateful to have found Shuli 1.5 years ago!

Great job! Shuli is so sweet to our girls!!
Oliver had a wonderful stay with Shuli. We love getting all the photos and videos of him having a great visit. He is always happy and tired when we pick him up. Thank you Shuli!
Ziggy gets very excited when I tell him he is going to visit Shuli and her dog Max. Thank you for taking such good care of Ziggy! Shuli always knows how to make Ziggy and the rest of the dogs she cares for happy!
Excellent care, as always! My dog is always happy to stay with Shuli when I travel, and I feel confident leaving him with her.
Shuli is the best! She keeps us updated with frequent photos and videos...my entire family loves seeing these!
Gigi had another great vacation with Shuli. Shuli takes fantastic care of Gigi and keeps us constantly updated on Gigi's visits with tons of pictures and videos. Most importantly, Shuli and her husband give Gigi "bed privileges" so that she feels truly at home. We are very happy with Shuli hosting Gigi and plan on using her again.

Rob, Sandy and Gigi

My elderly dog has stayed with Shuli several times and I wouldn't trust anyone else! Words can't explain how kind, loving, caring and just plain incredible Shuli is. She truly gives her heart to the dogs she cares for and it couldn't be more evident when you get multiple photos of your dog each day! I was so nervous about leaving my dog with other dogs, but Shuli has the best sense of what dogs will fit well together. I am so grateful to DogVacay for bringing me to Shuli!

Our dog loves going to Shuli's! He gets excited when we drive up her road! She walks him so often and sends us lots of great pics and videos. Her dog Max is such a sweetheart. If you leave your dog with Shuli, you won't be disappointed!
Mitzi had another good stay with Shuli. I know because she received lots of walks & is able to snuggle on the couch & on her pillows. Thanks, Shuli, for always making Mitzi comfortable.
Charlie had another excellent stay with Shuli. Thanks so much . Shuli does a very good job of managing several dogs on walks . Amazing. Thanks !!
Charlie had another wonderful stay with Shuli and her dog Max. He was well walked and loved every day.I loved seeing his pic on his walk and playing with new friends. Thanks so much for the excellent care.
Shuli.... yet another wonderful stay with your family for Molly. I'm sure Molly misses all her doggy companions and those lovely walks with you and Max. But not to worry.... as you know, she's coming back in just a few weeks. But, I think my secret is out about how well our four legged friends are treated at your home.....oh well!! Thanks, again, Shuli.

Another great weekend with Shuli - and we'll be back again soon! Bodhi has so much fun!
Oliver had a wonderful time- Shuli is so good to him and sends us photos and videos. Thank you Shuli!
Another great stay with Shuli! Tons of pictures and videos to show me how much fun my dog was having. I am worry free when I leave my dog with Shuli. We'll be back again and again!
A great experience as always! Oliver is always so happy to see Shuli. She also sends photos and videos during the day which is wonderful. Thank you Shuli!
Ziggy loves Shuli! She is very good with him and he gets along well with her dog Max. Shuli is always very flexible and understanding about my schedule that can be unpredictable. We are so grateful to have Shuli!
Molly had another great stay with you. All those movies and photo's you sent were such a blessing. Don't know who was having more fun...Molly or you!! You know, when she come home, I think she misses all those walks and also all her friends she meets at your house. Anyway, see you again in couple of weeks....she's coming for another stay!

As always Shuli was great! I love getting photos and videos from her and Oliver was a tired and happy pup when we picked him up! Thank you again Shuli!
Shuli took excellent care of our dog Gigi. We advised Shuli that Gigi was shy and may be afraid of other dogs as well as men. Shuli made sure to give her lots of love and made sure Gigi had a comfy place to sleep where she felt secure. Shuli sent us regular updates including lots of pictures and videos. It was clear from the pictures/video that Gigi was getting plenty of walks, petting and love and that she felt comfortable at Shuli's house. We will definitely use Shuli again.

As before, Shuli is awesome!!! Sunny is always happy and healthy during her stay and afterwards!
Amazing as always! Shuli is like the dog whisperer! I cannot say enough good things about her and how comfortable I am leaving my geriatric dog with her. The peace of mind is priceless! And just in case you're curious how your pup is doing, you get videos and photos every day! We are so lucky to have found her.

Ziggy and I are so thankful for Shuli! She takes such good care of Ziggy! He is a much happier dog for having a loving place to go while I am at work! Thank you, Shuli! And Max! Ziggy loves his buddy Max!
Thank you Shuli for another wonderful visit . I love getting the photos and updates while we are away. Charlie is sound asleep under my office chair. He is happy and content and he probably misses his doggie friends. Claire
My dogs had a better time on "vacation" with Shuli than I did on my trip!
She kept me posted several times a day by video and photo ab out their health and well being - lots of walks and lots of TLC. Everything she promised, she did - always exceeding expectations.
She was extremely attentive to the extra instructions I provided about dog care.
I would be happy to have her care for my dogs in the future.
Thank you very much to Shuli and Dogvacay.

Shuli takes such good care of Ziggy! She is also very flexible about changes to the schedule. It is amazing to watch Shuli with the dogs in her care. It is as if she speaks their language and puts them at ease. Thanks Shuli!
Mitzi always enjoys her stays with Shuli. Shuli is very attentive & relaxed with all her dogs. She walks them frequently & they have free rein in her beautiful & clean house. It is comforting when we are out of town to receive photos & videos of our dog. We feel completely confident that Mitzi is well taken care of. Thank you, Shuli!

Shuli took extra loving care for our dog even when he had stomach troubles during our absence. He enjoys the walks with Shuli and treats her house like his second home. Thank you ... Jean
Shuli, Thank you for accomodating the last moment change in date. As ususal Charlie was very happy to stay the extra time with you!
Shuli is awesome, so patient and loving! We are so grateful to have found her!!!
Once again, we were lucky enough to have Shuli watch our (very energetic) pup. Shuli was so accommodating to our dog who gets extremely jealous/anxious when other dogs get to go out and Shuli was kind enough to take him out each and every time she walked one of the other dogs (he literally probably walked 10x a day!) We got tons of pictures and videos and as always, we are so grateful to know that someone as lovely and caring as Shuli is in this business.

I am new to the area and I was nervous to leave my dog Sammy with a stranger. However, Shuli was absolutely amazing! To my surprise, she sent multiple photos and videos every day. I could see that my pup was not just coping during my absence - he was having FUN. He got lots of exercise with many walks a day. Shuli was flexible, responsive and very easy to communicate with. She has a beautiful house and Sammy looked very comfortable during his stay. I will definitely use her again the next time I am traveling - this time without any hesitation. I could enjoy my trip so much more knowing my dog was well taken care of. Thank you, Shuli!

Shuli was great! We did a meet and greet first so that she could meet my dog and so he would be familiar with her house. He is a very nervous dog, and she kept us updated during his stay with many pictures and videos. Since he is very scared, she also walked him by himself once instead of with her other dogs. We would definitely use her services again!
Read More...
Shuli was great. She made sure to keep us up to date on what Madison was doing. She sent pictures and videos daily! Madison will be back.
Shuli takes great care of the dogs in her care; shows love and tenderness to them. We feel very comfortable leaving our Charlie Brown with her.
Shuli took excellent care of my puppy Piper! Piper has tons of puppy energy and Shuli gave her lots of extra attention. She even took her upstairs for naps and carried her down the stairs since Piper gets scared. Piper was so excited to see Shuli when we arrived so I know she loves her stays. My schedule changed last minute and I had to pick Piper up earlier and Shuli was very accommodating and worked with me. I look forward to scheduling Pipers next stay. Thanks, Shuli!

Once again, Shuli loves our dogs like her own! We know our girls are safe and happy, having a great time with their little friends, lots of attention from Shuli!
My dog stayed with Shuli for a couple of nights and Shuli did an amazing job with her! My dog usually doesn't eat for several days and gets sad and stressed when she's not with me, but she started eating the second day she was there. She came home tired, but happy and totally not stressed, which is amazing! Shuli also sent a ton of pictures, so I was comforted in seeing that my pup's tail was up and she looked happy!

This was Nyla's fourth stay at Shuli's and it was wonderful!! Shuli is great at communicating every day and sending pictures so I never have to worry about how she is doing. Nyla seems to enjoy her stays and the peace of mind I get from having Shuli watch her is priceless! Shuli even washes the food bowls I take for each day's meals!! I can't thank Shuli enough and there's no one else I would entrust my dog to for long trips! Thank you Shuli!!!! You are the BEST!!!!

Shuli's care is exceptional! She is a trusted friend who really cares about Ziggy! Everytime Ziggy hears me say "Shuli and Max" he gets excited! It is so comforting to know that there is someone out there who cares for Ziggy as much as I do!
Shuli took care of our dog Sparky while we were on vacation, and she simply was the best. It seems that Sparky had a vacation himself! She sent us pictures and videos daily which we enjoyed and made us comfortable regarding his being. She walked him over 5 times a day, fed him his prepared food on time, petted him and loved him as her own. It was clear to us he was having fun with her and the other dogs. I will definitely use Shuli next time we travel.
Thank you Shuli :)

My doxies adore Shuli!!! And we are comforted because Shuli feels the same about them!
Thank you!!!
Shuli is terrific!!! Sweet lady for our sweet dogs!!!
We are so appreciative of Shuli's care for our pug, Lily. We have booked Lily with Shuli multiple times. She is always dependable and gives us great peace of mind. We recently boarded her while we got ready to move out of the state. We are going to miss Shuli very much and are thankful for all the loving care she has provided to our dog. Thank you, Shuli!!

My dogs were very well taken care of and were comfortable with Shuli. The photos were fun to see what they were up to. I would highly recommend Shuli.
Shuli is awesome, genuinely loves the dogs as if they are her own!!!
Thanks, Shuli, for yet, another successful stay for Molly. For her its like home.... thanks for making her feel so comfortable. She loves your bed as much as she loves ours!!! See you in August if not sooner. Sue S
Charlie had another fun vacation with Shuli. He looked happy, well fed and relaxed when I picked him up! I would never hesitate to leave him with Shuli again, I am convinced that gets great care and love there...
As always Oliver's stay with Shuli was wonderful. He is always so excited to go and she takes such great care of him. On top of that she is flexible and great with our communication. I never worry when Oliver is with Shuli. Thank you Shuli!
When I travel, I feel very comfortable leaving my dog with Shuli. This was the third time he stayed with her, and as soon as he jumped out of the car and smelled the lawn in front of her house, his tail started wagging. I am comfortable knowing that he is well taken care of, and that he has fun.

Shuli is the best.
Shuli is a loving and responsible host. She has a very comfortable, secure, and clean setting for the dogs. She is very good about sending updates and pictures. I felt completely comfortable leaving our dog in her care and our dog seemed very happy with her. I would highly recommend her to others and wouldn't hesitate to have our dog stay with her again.

As always Oliver had such a wonderful time at Shuli's. She always treats all the dogs like her own and is great with sending photos and updates. Her correspondence is prompt and polite. Shuli is always number one for us! Thank you Shuli!
Another wonderful visit with Shuli!! Nyla is so comfortable with at Shuli's home and Shuli does a wonderful job of sending pictures and keeping me updated on how well Nyla's doing during her stay. I can't give enough praises or thank Shuli enough for giving my baby such excellent care!! Shuli is truly wonderful!!!!! Thank you!!!!!!!

We cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience with Shuli. We had to leave town for a week and contemplated a few different options for our 8 month old labradoodle. We thought about leaving her with friends or a boarder, but we know we made the right decision picking Shuli. Our dog had a wonderful time while we were away. We received multiple updates each day with pictures and notes about how she was doing, which was very comforting. I know it is a hard decision about who is best to leave your dog with, but do not hesitate to choose Shuli. She was very accomadating and took great care of our puppy. We will no longer have to hesitate or think twice about who to pick in the future. Thanks again Shuli for a wonderful experience for us all!

Shuli was the best choice for our dog Sparky. She loves dogs and knows how to handle them very well. We did the meet and greet which went very well, and decided to do a trial run and keep Sparky for just one day and over night to see how he reacts since it's his first time. It went so well, when we picked him up he was turning around looking towards the other dogs wanting to continue the walk with them. Now we feel we can leave our dog during our vacation without worrying.
Shuli walks her dogs 5-6 times a day (more than what we do!) also, she cuddled him, fed him the same way we usually do. Also, Shuli kept updating us with Sparky through pictures, videos and emails, which was comforting for us to see he was enjoying his stay.
It was clear to us when we picked him up, he was a happy camper! THANK YOU SHULI...

Shuli is so great with Ziggy. She really treats him like family! He is always happy to see Shuli and Max. He and Max get along great. I recommend Shuli to all the local dog owners that I know!
My puppy Piper had lots of fun spending time with Shuli while I was out of town for a long weekend! This was Piper's first time away from me and I was nervous leaving her since she is only 6 months old and about 6 lbs. Shuli was a terrific host! She sent me lots of pictures over the weekend and videos of Piper playing fetch and going for lots of walks. I was happy to see Piper having a great time! The first night Piper was barking so Shuli even took her upstairs to make her more comfortable! I was so surprised to hear that Piper was also eating all of her food, which she never does if there is any change to her schedule. So, I knew Piper was very comfortable at Shuli's house and having a great time! I'm looking forward to scheduling Piper's next stay with Shuli!

Hazel had another wonderful stay with Shuli. She loves the company, walks, and atmosphere. It makes us feel good about being away, knowing that Hazel is in good hands and well cared for.
Once again Shuli's care for my Sam has been fabulous! She and her two other dogs were wonderful companions and I feel very assured he was in good hands. Two nights and he is in great shape, I am happy, and am booked for another trip already. Dogvacay helped me with good response as well. The photos at least 40 since I left are so thoutful!

Freckles had a nice time.
Shuli was incredibly wonderful once again!!! Nyla truly seems to enjoy her care and company. I never have to worry even the slightest about my little lady while I'm out of town. I love all the picture updates that Shuli sends and it is reassuring that Nyla is enjoying her vacation!!!! Shuli makes the entire experience very easy and she is so kind!!!! I can't give her enough stars!!!! Thank you!!!!

Shuli wisely recommended that my dog, Blake, come for a "trial" visit after he peed on her floor during a meet and greet. While fully housetrained at home, Blake seems to forget his manners when visiting other dogs' homes, so I put a diaper on him when we went for the overnight trial. He seemed happy there, and Shuli sent many photos of Blake and other dogs on frequent walks and at home while he was sleeping and eating, which I loved to see. Alas, he couldn't hold it for the hour she was gone and soaked his diaper. Shuli was very gracious and concerned for him, but we agreed he isn't the right fit to stay there again. Too bad, she is a lovely person and has a wonderful home for dogs to roam around in. I recommend her to others!

Oliver has been to Shuli's multiple times now and she is always our first choice. She is very prompt with communication and sends wonderful photos and videos during his stay. Shuli has a great set up at her home for multiple dogs and is excellent at making sure everyone gets along. Oliver always comes home happy and tired from his day of playing and cuddling with Shuli. Thank you for always taking such good care of our pup Shuli!

Thank you for helping us out with doggie day care at the last minute. He had a good time with his doggie friends. See you in August if not sooner. Claire and Charlie
Our dog just got back from another awesome vacation at Shuli's! We kept up with his activities through all the pictures she sent and we are so grateful to have someone who is so kind and well able to manage the energy of our little pup!
We are very please with the care that Shuli provided to our two dogs; Polo & Rocky. We got constant update with photos of their well being. It made us feel secure knowing that they are in safe hands. Thanks, Yehuda & Gila
We're so lucky to have found Shuli! Bodhi's so happy to visit his home away from home!
Our four year old Cavalier spent the weekend with Shuli and from all the batches of photos she sent and how exhausted he was when he got home, it is clear he had a great time! This was was our dog's third stay with Shuli and I am always so impressed with how she cares for each of them the same as she cares for her own dog and we love knowing that we are able to go away and leave him with someone so kind and wonderful. Our dog is already ready for his next stay with Shuli!

Happy puppy!
We were very please with the care that you provided us with our two small dogs. When we picked them up this last Sunday they were in a very good spirit. We definitely will seek your services on our next vacation.
Another great stay for Freckles!
Shuli....thank you for keeping Molly another night. Getting bumped by Southwest Airlines was no joke and meant we had to hang around Denver airport for 10 more hours therefore missing our pick up time with you. It is so comforting to know she is in such good hands and that she's getting treated as well as she would be at home! See you soon...
Read More...
Bodhi had another great vacation at Shuli's! He knows her house as soon as we pull up and is always excited to see her. We get lots of photo and little movie updates and he's always having a good time!
Shuli was wonderful!!! I couldn't have asked for a better host for Nyla!! She sent pictures every day and I knew that Nyla was in good hands and enjoying her stay. It was so nice to know I didn't have to worry about her while I was away and could concentrate on enjoying my vacation. Nyla and I could not have been more pleased with Shuli!!! I've used DogVacay a few times in the past but Shuli was far and above the best host!!!! Thank you so much!!!

-Melissa and Nyla

Ziggy loves visiting his friend Shuli. She really cares about Ziggy. It is clear that his care and happiness is her top priority when he is there. Shuli is great about taking many fun walks and getting both play and cuddle time. Ziggy and I are just so happy we met Shuli!

Your home has become Molly's "home away from home", Shuli. Thanks again for a great stay last week and don't forget she's coming back to visit you next week! Its so nice to know she is happy to return and gets treated so royally.... all those walks!

If I could give Shuli 10 stars, I would! She is truly the BEST. My dog is a sweet, old girl who needs some extra TLC and Shuli never lets us down in that department. My dog comes home SO spoiled from getting so much attention! Ha! She has stayed with Shuli 3 times now and is so at home with Shuli and her family. Shuli sends photos daily and you never have any doubt that your dog is in 7th heaven! Last, my dog always meets other sweet doggie friends at Shuli's. She really has a 6th sense for choosing dogs with sweet temperaments.

Chester had a great time with Shuli. I got lots of cute pictures and communication, and Shuli was very nice and flexible when travel difficulties made it impossible for me to pick him up at the appointed time.
Bodhi had another vacation at Shuli's and, as always, had a great time! He loves going there and I love that Shuli sends pictures and updates. Shuli's home has been a great find for us!
I am very happy with my experience. Since the beginning, Shuli was nice and reassuring and my dog became quickly comfortable with her and with the new surroundings.
Her house is spacious and bright, with lots of space for the dogs to roam and play.
I really appreciated receiving lots of photos of my dog walking, playing and resting - having an insight on his day made me feel connected and reassured that he was in good hands.
Shuli is a great host and I would highly recommend her to anybody!

This was Charlie's 2nd visit and all went well. Shuli is a very caring and responsible person. Thanks Shuli !!
It is such a treasure that Freckles has a wonderful second family to look after her. Every time she comes home happy and healthy. Thanks so much!
Great place! Our dog was very happy and had a great time. Shuli is very nice with dogs and takes great care of them. She shared with us regular pictures of our dog, it was good to see him having so much fun.
With Shuli, you can leave your dog knowing that he will be in good hands.

Shuli is so caring. I forgot Ziggy's snacks (apple pieces and cream cheese) and she went to her own personal supply for Ziggy. It is good to know he is in such good hands while I can not be with him!
I feel so comfortable taking Oliver to stay with Shuli. She always keeps me updated with pictures and her home has a wonderful layout for the dogs to play. I would highly recommend her and will continue to book with her! Thank you Shuli!
Ziggy is so happy at Shuli's! She takes great care of him and he is always happy to visit. Ziggy and Shuli's dog Max have become fast friends! I also really like the photos that Shuli sends.
Joey had a fine time with Shuli and her other guests. He had lots of walks as witnessed by the many photos. Drop off and pick up went without a hitch. Good communication. Thanks.
This was our first Dog Vacay experience and we were more than pleased. Shuli was caring and very tuned into our dog Charlie from the very first meeting. We enjoyed getting the photo updates during our time away. I think he misses his dog friends and Shuli!

After having been away for two weeks, I went to pick up our little girl Sophie around noon; as soon as I rang the door bell, I was greeted by 4-5 adorable little puppies. They all seemed happy, energetic and noisy!! As soon as they heard Shuli's footsteps coming down, they all rushed up the stairs and joined her. It was very reassuring to see these cute/wonderful creature to be roaming around freely/interacting with each other. When Shuli came down and opened the door, Sophie jumped up on me, barking enthusiastically and then turning around, running to Shuli!! Nice to see her feeling so attached, but I felt just a little jealous!! I did not know that jealousy can feel so good!!

Shuli is the perfect host. Bagel loves visiting and she takes such great care of him. She sends great photos all day. It's such a relief to know we have a conscientious host to watch Bagel when we have to travel! Highly recommended!
Another great stay..... thanks, Shuli! Just about to go online to book yet another visit in March!
It is clear Shuli cares for dogs! Ziggy had a great time with Shuli, her pup Max, and the few other dogs staying there. Shuli sent great photos throughout the day. Ziggy seemed very happy and content while in Shuli's home. Thank you!!
Shuli was absolutely amazing and very flexible. We had planned poorly and were late for pickup and she was very understanding, accommodating and sweet. As for our pooch, she had an absolutely amazing time and we were sent pictures to reassure us that she was in good hands!
Read More...
Lucy had a wonderful time and Shuli couldn't have been nicer! We got regular updates while out of town and Lucy returned home a very happy pup. We'll definitely be back soon...
Shuli is the best - I completely trust her with our dog. Bagel gets excited when we pull into her driveway and loves spending time with Shuli and her dog Max. Shuli is so attentive and caring - she treats Bagel like her own. And she sends great pictures to keep us posted. It's a real relief to know that we have someone that we can trust to care for Bagel!
Read More...
Shuli is a great host! I received photos of my dog while he was with her and received updates about walks, food, and play time. I will certainly be a returning customer!
Our dogs spent the weekend at Shuli's and it was a wonderful experience. She sent so many pictures throughout the weekend as well as videos of our dogs playing. Shuli was also very response from the meet-n-greet to the pick-up. We felt at ease knowing our dogs were in great hands and will definitely use her again!
Read More...
We booked Arty to stay with Shuli for the weekend at the very last minute when both my husband and I had to be out of town. Shuli was so accommodating and sent adorable pictures/videos of Arty with his new friends. It was such a relief to know that he was in such trustworthy and reliable hands. We will definitely have him stay with Shuli again!
Read More...
Thanks again Shuli for a great week with Molly. See you again next week.... she can't wait. All those walks!!!!!!
Another excellent experience with tender loving care provided to Charlie by Shuli and her family. He looked very happy and well taken care of when I picked him up. Many walks (and pictures!) with other nice resident dogs that Shuli had under her care during holidays. I feel less guilty going on vacation !

Another good stay with Shuli
As always, Jake was happy at Shuli's. He always has a great time and we are always glad that he is with Shuli.
I would love to keep Shuli a secret, but that would just be selfish of me! Ha! What can I say, she's amazing! I have an old dog who needs some extra TLC and Shuli provides that and then some. The peace of mind that I have leaving my dog with her is priceless. This was our second stay with Shuli and will not be our last. She is super caring, attentive and loving with the dogs..and walks them multiple times a day. She even sends photos of them EVERY day! She's the best!

I was initially concerned about my dog being with other dogs, but Shuli has a real knack at choosing dogs that will get along well together. Now I see it as a positive...that my dog will never miss us!

Shuli was a wonderful host for Buddy! Although we heard good things about her from friends, I was still nervous leaving our 1 year old puppy with a stranger for the first time. My concerns were allayed immediately when I received photos of Buddy sleeping in her bed. She made sure Buddy felt safe and he had a ball with the other dogs staying with her during winter break. We received lots of photos and a video of him playing. We definitely will use Shuli any time we go away in the future. He came home happy and tired from lots of fun. Thank you, Shuli!!
Read More...
We continue to book with Shuli because we have complete confidence in the great care she provides to our Lily. We also love receiving photo updates daily and appreciate Shuli's flexible pick up and drop off times. Thank you Shuli!
Shuli did a great job taking care of Rocky. She was very accommodating and regularly sent pictures of him while I was away. She cares about her doggy guests and takes good care of them. I would highly recommend her.
I was a little nervous booking Oliver's first vacay, but Shuli was wonderful. She set up a meet and greet before the stay and sent pictures and video of Oliver to keep me updated. Oliver loved it so much that he didn't want to leave! I will book with Shuli again, she is a wonderful host and her home is great for pups!
Read More...
Molly had a great time as usual. Get ready for her return next week. She can't wait... all those walks!
Shuli was great as usual -- lots of photo updates. We will continue to use her for our pet sitting needs.
Lily had another great stay at Shuli's! Getting picture updates every day is so fun! Shuli is a fabulous host.
We just picked up Arty, our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel from Shuli's house and couldn't be happier with his stay! Shuli was very responsive to our emails and sent pictures of Arty and his new dog friends several times per day, including a couple of videos of him interacting with the other dogs. Since Arty is used to sleeping in our room, Shuli had him stay in her room at night which I know put him at ease since he isn't used to being one of so many dogs (he's an only dog at home). We would highly recommend Shuli and will definitely have Arty stay with her again in the future!

Freckles had a great time at her second home.
Bodhi had another great stay at Shuli's! He was so excited when we got there. When we arrived to pick him up,he was happy to see us but also happy to run around and play some more. Shuli's has been a real find for us and we look forward to bringing Bodhi back again and again!
Read More...
Fabulous -- the best experience we could have had. stressless for me AND the dog! Clearly because Shuli is caring, calm, very conscientious and very thoughtful. Sam had a grand time with her lovely dog Max and another sweet dog. Pictures came regularly, and when he came home he was calm, and tired too! I am so pleased to have found Shuli!
Read More...
We have used Shuli multiple times, and Jake has a wonderful time every time he is there! He comes home so happy! We would use no one else.
Another fun stay for Freckles.
Lily had another great visit with Shuli! We especially loved the video clip updates. Thank you again Shuli!
Charlie Brown had a great time. And, Shuli sent us pictures of all of his playmates, eating, resting, etc. That was really great.
Shuli made sure Charlie took all of his pills and ate his food.
We are definitely bringing Charlie back to visit Shuli the next time we go out of town.
Read More...
Shuli is a perfect host! She took such great care of Bagel - it was like a second home for him. She walked him several times a day and took so many photos. I would recommend Shuli to anyone - she will take care of your dog like her own.
Another wonderful stay at Shuli's for our girls! They even got to see some friends they stayed with before!

Once again I was astounded at the level of care provides to my dear pups, and loved all the pictures and videos!

We can't bring ourselves to board our girls anywhere else after experiencing the amazing care provided by Shuli. In this area at least, we have found her prices to be the same as local boarding rates. We wish it was cheaper of course, but you definitely get what you pay for with Shuli!

Shuli's dog care/spa is a treasure conveniently located in the middle of Bethesda, only a few minutes away from exit 270/495. The house is clean, spacious and dog friendly; the dogs can roam around freely. Max (Shuli's dog) seems like a sweet/friendly little guy which got along beautifully with our dog during her stay. But what makes this place special is Shuli's loving/caring attitude/treatment of the dogs she cares for. She is gentle, affectionate and attentive. She treated Sophie(our dog) like a princess in our absence and regularly communicated with us through e-mails and pictures. I highly recommend Shuli; I am sure you will not be disappointed.

Molly and I arrived at Shuli's home in the midst of a thunderstorm. She was very agitated and upset and I was very nervous myself! But within hours came the first photos and note that totally put my mind at rest and I was able to relax and enjoy our holiday. Thank you, Shuli !!! The biggest problem is Molly had such a good time with Shuli and her dog mates and ALL those walks, she's expecting the same treatment now shes back home! I'm about to go online to book Molly for her next visit to Shuli. I know Molly can't wait to return to her beautiful home.

Freckles has never been happier.
We love getting daily photo updates. We know Shuli truly cares for dogs and enjoys taking care of them. Thank you Shuli!
Bodhi had a great time at Shuli's! He played with one or two other dog friends each day and had lots of outdoor time on walks. Shuli sent us pictures each day and Bodhi looked happy and relaxed. Shuli had Bodhi for nearly 2 weeks. We were so happy with the care he received and will definitely bring him back again - so much better than a kennel!
Read More...
I was worried since we'd never left our elderly dog with anyone outside the family before. But Shuli understood her needs and made her feel right at home.
Our dog Saba, stayed with Shuli for over a week. Shuli sent daily photo updates and our pup was super happy at her house. She is great with dogs, and we will be using her services again in the future. Thanks Shuli!
This was our second time visiting Shuli. Hazel had a wonderful time and was tired out from playing with the other dogs and all the walks. In the 24 hours Hazel was there Shuli sent lots of pictures and even a video to show us how happy Hazel was. We highly recommend Shuli. She clearly loves dogs and takes excellent care of her visitors.

How to begin such an amazing review? From the very first interaction, Shuli is incredible!! Our girls (Jasmine and Renee) stayed with Shuli one week ago today for several days and had a complete blast! Shuli provided detailed dedicated care for our two dogs the entire time they were in her care.

As a dog momma my favorite part of their stay with Shuli was definitely the daily photo updates! I was blown away by being able to see my gals multiple times a day playing and having fun with the other dogs at Shuli's house.

I have only boarded my dogs once at testudinal "kennel" type location and of course there wasn't a welcoming home with photo updates involved. I worried the whole time they were boarded. With Shuli I felt completely at ease dropping them off and was reminded to have fun while I was away seeing what a fun time the girls were having without Mom and Dad around :-)

I recommend Shuli 100%!! I can only hope that she is always available when we need someone to love up on our girls!

Thank you Shuli!

Benji had a great stay with Shuli. We got lots of pictures of him and he came home happily tired. We will certainly have him stay with Shuli again.
Shuli was a caring and attentive host for Teddy. She provided just what we were looking for and are pleased at how well he adjusted to her and his new temporary environment. It was a positive experience for everyone involved. Thanks Shuli!
Our beloved cavapoo had a great experience at Shuli's-- she came back tired and happy! Thank you Shuli!
Another great stay with Shuli! My dog makes new friends every time he visits, and the daily picture updates put me at ease while I'm away.
This was our dog's second stay with Shuli. He was excited to return to her home and care. Again, she kept us updated on his stay and was very flexible in making it an easy drop off and pick up for us. He will be returning for another weekend with Shuli in a couple of weeks--that should say it all!
Read More...
Shuli is a wonderful host! She truly loves dogs and it is shown by the loving attention she gives to them. It felt so wonderful to be able to trust someone so much with our dog. Her daily photo updates were so fun and gave us so much peace that our dog was happy and enjoying her stay. Definitely will be booking with her again. Thanks Shuli!

My dog was very well cared for in a loving environment. Shuli's attentiveness and daily communications with pics gave me piece of mind and I was able to enjoy my time on vacation.
Another great Vacay for my Cavalier Bentley. I'm at ease knowing he's in good hands and her text/photo updates make me smile to see him doing so well. We can't thank you enough Shuli.
Jake has stayed with Shuli many times now, and always has a great time. She is really good with him and there are always great dogs for him there (he even found a girlfriend on this last visit). He is so excited when we go to her house... he is looking forward to his next trip.

Shuli was the kindest, sweetest host for our dog that we could have hoped for. She really understands the dogs and is kind and patient with them. Shuli sent pictures every day, and we had full confidence that our dog was in the best of hands (and were afraid she would not want to return home!).

Rex was happy to be with Shuli. He had been there before and was familiar with the routine and was looking forward to being with other dogs. The cliche that photos are worth a thousand words is true. We received photos of Rex daily and were looking forward to see how he was doing. I strongly recommend Shuli to other dog owners.
Read More...
We are so glad that we found Shuli, who hosted Harry for a full week. He was certainly a "happy camper", enjoying his well-supervised interactions with other dogs and his welcome freedom in this warm and welcoming home. I am sure he will return for future visits with this wonderful host.

This has been a fabulous week for Rex. Shuli and her family have showered him with affection by giving him lots of belly rubs which he absolutely loves. Rex will remain with Shuli for another week. Rex is having a nice relaxing vacation while his family is facing the hurricane in Hawaii.

A huge thank you to Shuli for a wonderful doggie vacation for our pup. She truly provided a great home experience, with walks, his own bed and crate, other friends to play with and lots of attention! A great experience and we will certainly be back.

Thanks so much Shuli!

Wow, Shuli is a gem! I have never left my dog, Emme, with a stranger OR for such a long time (2wks), but I did not have one worry about leaving her with Shuli. Shuli immediately warmed up to Emme upon meeting her and I knew this would be a great place for Emme. Shuli sent me photos EVERY DAY while I was away with a little note. I cannot tell you how reassuring this was! I could just tell Emme was in good hands!

My dog has some health issues and Shuli was happy to give her her meds and keep an eye out for anything unusual. I feel so relieved to have found Shuli! She truly is a dog lover!

Hazel had a wonderful time during her extended stay with Shuli. Shuli took great care of her, giving her many walks and attention. Hazel also enjoyed meeting many new dog friends during her stay with Shuli, and we appreciated the pictures and video updates she shared with us. It is clear that Shuli loves dogs!

My dog Angel really had a wonderful vacation at Shuli's!! Shuli took care of Angel like her own and posted many pictures and updates daily. I felt very comfortable and relaxed knowing that my baby was happy and well taken care of while I was away for my vacation. I will definitely take Angel back to Shuli's when I need to be out of town next time!!

I am so happy to have found Shuli on DogVacay. My 2yr old Cavalier Bentley can get very anxious when separated from me but on his 2 stays so far with Shuli she has gone above and beyond in making sure that Bentley is comfortable and feels at home. I'm grateful for the extra time she dedicates to him in helping him come out of his shell. I love getting her photo updates seeing Bentley laying on her bed, enjoying his walks with all the dogs and playing with her family. She truly looks after each individual dog as if they were her own. Max, her 11yr old Cavalier, is a good testament to what a good dog mommy she is. She has a beautiful clean home in a friendly neighborhood and is very accommodating to my schedule. I will definitely be using her on a regular basis and would highly recommend her to others. Thank you Shuli for opening up your home and heart to Bentley :)

My friend who normally watches my dog while we are away just moved to California. I saw a TV commercial about DogVacay and checked the website. Best thing I ever did. I found a wonderful host in Shuli. My dog, Rex, rarely spends more than 10 min with other dogs. Shuli sent photos of Rex and it was great to see him with other dog friends. We will be using Shuli again and I do not hesitate in recommending her.
Read More...
Another successful vacay with our dear Shuli!!! She is simply the best! So sweet and cares so much about Red, our miniature poodle. Shuli is also very responsible and very accommodating with her schedule. Red enjoys his walks many times a days and loves the company of the other dogs visiting Shuli. Our family enjoys looking at the many updates and pictures about Red each day. We feel happy that Red is in good hands when we go on vacation. Highly recommend her services!!

I am so happy that we found Shuli! Our dog Jake can be a bit anxious, but he is always so happy and eager to go to Shuli's. Shuli is extremely responsive, and sends us photos and updates on Jake daily. She is flexible when we have had unexpected family emergencies, and is more than willing to go the extra mile to give Jake medications that he needs. Shuli is very warm, and makes Jake feel at home.

Shuli was a wonderful host for my dog, and went the extra mile to make him (and me!) comfortable. She sent multiple pictures, videos, and updates every day so I knew he was happy and I could relax and enjoy my vacation. I've already booked several more stays with her this year!

Shuli was the best! This was the first time that I used dogvacay and the first time leaving Ripley with anyone other than family or a best friend. Shuli was immediately responsive to communication and flexible for a meet and greet at the time I needed. I was completely confident to leave RIpley with her. She was genuinely interested in his needs and usual regime. He got multiple walks per day and she took him to a fenced in yard so he and his friends could play. She sent pictures and videos multiple times per day so I always knew what Ripley was up to and that he was having a great time. She treated Ripley like her own dog. I will definitely use her again and I recommend her to anyone interested in dogvacay.
Read More...
Shuli was a very responsible host. My dog had the chance to spend a weekend with other dogs in a beautiful home. I will definitely use her again. Thank you, Shuli.
This was our first experience with dogvacay.com, and we had a great experience. We met Shuli for a meet-and-greet then Yosie stayed a long weekend at her house. We got photo updates 2-3 times per day and could watch Yosie's progress as she got used to being around other dogs (she is shy and doesn't know how to interact with dogs very well). On the last day, Shuli sent us a video of Yosie playing with the other dogs! We will definitely ask Shuli to watch Yosie next time she needs to be left behind.

Excellent home away from home. Wonderful family, responsible host, large extra clean house. Wouldn't hesitate to leave my dog with Shuli any time we have to go away.
We left our two dogs with Shuli for over a week and our dogs had a great time. Shuli was GREAT, she sent us pictures and short notes everyday. Shuli took them for walks everyday and took them to her neighbors backyard to play. She lets them run around inside her clean and beautiful house. We felt at ease knowing that our dogs were taken care of and treated well. We highly highly recommend Shuli and we will definitely use her again in the future.

Mitzi has stayed with Shuli & her family previously. We feel very comfortable and confident leaving Mitzi behind. Shuli always gives our Havanese much love and attention. Mitzi gets outside a lot for walks, is free to run around throughout their beautiful and clean home and is allowed to sleep in their bed if so desired. We feel honored to have met Shuli and thrilled that Mitzi gets a vacay too!

Shuli was great and Jake had a fabulous time. She sent pictures and a short note twice a day, which was more than we expected. He came home plenty tired, which is always a good sign. Jake will be going back to Shuli this summer!
I would highly recommend Shuli! She has a beautiful home in a lovely neighborhood. Shuli was very welcoming since the first time we met, you can tell that she really loves dogs and has so much patience with them. Red had friends to play with, had walks several times a day and he even got to sleep in Shuli's room. Our family was so happy to see many pictures and updates of Red adventures every day. Also she is very flexible with drop-off and pick-up times. We feel so lucky to have found Shuli, she is the best!
Thank you Shuli,
Mily & family

Shuli has a welcoming home and is obviously a dog lover. She is responsible, caring, very flexible and loving. We feel very comfortable leaving our dog with her. She kept us informed thru emails and even sent us some photos of Mitzi which were precious. We highly recommend Shuli.

It's obvious Shuli loves dogs and knows how to take care of them. He dog Max was very friendly to Eddie (our dog). Lovely house in a quiet neighborhood. Eddie really had a nice time.
Shuli was FANTASTIC!!!

Setting up the meet and greet was very easy. We came at our appointed time and she together with her dog, Max, met us outside the house for so that Sam and Princess would walk with Max so they will get to know one another.

She walked them about 4 or 5 times a day. They stayed with Shuli in her bedroom at night. She welcomed them to go around her very nice house. Shuli also e-mailed us daily with pictures and status updates on S&P (and Max too).

We could really tell from the very beginning that Shuli was very knowledgeable and that she really cares about dogs.

We are very glad to have found Shuli. We will highly recommend her to others. Her rates are also the most reasonable we have found.

We will definitely bring Sam and Princess back when we go on our next vacation.

Thank you Shuli! You Rock!

My dog was treated very well at Shuli's house. Her comfortable, clean house was welcoming to my dog and me. Shuli was very kind, respectful, and available for easy drop-off and pick-up. I would recommend Shuli for dog-hosting. Andy
