About Shaun

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a household of nurses. I am a PCU nurse and she is a geriatric nurse. We are both obviously CPR and First Aid certified and also have our own pets: two cats (one outdoor, the other lives in the master bedroom that any dogs are kept out of). We also have two rescues, one is an energetic lab/pit terrier mix and the other is a senior collie/lab mix. Both are happy dogs that enjoy the company of other dogs. We go on frequent walks and runs. Our resident 8 year old loves cuddling with dogs and often has ours sleeping with her at night. We have a quarter of an acre for the dogs to play in as well. We look forward to meeting your dogs and sharing our home with them for however long is needed.

*Please note that DogVacay at times isn't completely accurate despite my best efforts to ensure our calendar/amount of dogs we are watching is correct. If you'd like to book with us and it shows that we're booked, feel free to send a general inquiry email to verify that we are booked. Thank you! :)*

*Please also note that we will NOT accept any dogs that are not fully vaccinated. This is a decision that we are unwavering on to protect not only ourselves, our dogs and our guests dogs. Kennels, vets and dog daycares out in the community all require this and even though some dogvacay sitters might accept dogs that are not fully vaccinated, we at Skagit Sitters feel it's very important to vaccinate all pets for the health of your pets and the pets in the community.*

Shaun and his family were excellent hosts for our dogs. Easy drop off and pick up. The pics we got while on our own vacation definitely helped with the dog withdrawals.
All our experiences with Shaun have been terrific. Beau, our dog, seems to be happy to get there and is always in good shape when we pick her up. Highly recommend Shaun -- can't go wrong with him.
Shaun watched Benny in a pinch for me. Great sitter. Benny was happy and tired when he came home. Shaun made it super easy to spend the last days with our older kids flying out of Seattle by sending updates and pics of Benny so we were not worried about home. Lovely area with a nice yard that Benny could check out. Thank you so much Shaun!!
They took of our dogs the same way as if they were their dogs. Shaun sent us pictures of tony & dundy to reinsure us yhat everything was ok. They didnt need to but they also went for a walk. Easy to communicate with. We definitely recommend shaun yo anyone of you are nervous about leaving their dogs to somebody they dont know. Shaun was really good with them.
Very grateful to Shaun and Erin they were a great fit for our dog. Our pup was happy and not as excited to see us as we were expecting ;-) which means he had so much fun and didn't want to leave. We will definitely use them again and will recommend them to friends.
We were so pleased with the care offered by Shaun, Erin and family. Their dog-friendly home environment and fenced back yard made it easy to leave our sweet Ollie (our shitzu). They knew how to handle his (and our) separation anxiety so Ollie's stay was comfortable for all of us. Very reasonably priced. In a heartbeat, we would leave Ollie in their care again!
Our border collie was one happy dog at Shaun's home. She was well treated, had fun with the owners' dogs, had access to inside and out. It's the best doggie daycare we've found and we intend to take Beau there again.
Our little puppy seemed to have a great time with Shaun and Erin. They're two dogs are very sweet and our puppy got along with them well. They have a nice large backyard that allows the pups to romp around.
Shaun provided a nice temporary home for our 2 little rescues. They had access to a fully fenced yard with a large grassy area. I would reserve with Shaun again if the need arises.
Shaun and his family took good care of my border collie/sheltie, Pepper, and I couldn't be happier! I left her with them for the day and appreciated that Shaun sent me some photos of Pepper enjoying her stay. I love that she had easy access to the backyard and had her own play date with another dog. I would definitely have Pepper stay with Shaun again!
Great dog sitters! They watched my 2 dogs for a second time, this time over the weekend. Friendly and polite people that took great care of my 2 dogs that can be quite a hand full at times. Highly recommended sitters!
We left our little Ellie with Shaun and his family on Saturday. Shaun was easy to communicate with and most importantly our dog had a wonderful day. We received lots of photos throughout the day giving us a worry free experience. Thanks for taking good care of her.
Had to take a short notice trip out of town which required me to find boarding for my large dog. Shaun S was easy to set up boarding within a couple of days of email trading. They provided daily updates and photos too so you know everything is going alright. Drop off and pickup was a breeze. Great service and would definitely use them again and recommend them to others.
Friendly and polite sitters with fast response times! Dogs all got along right away and our high energy dogs were super tired out when they got home. No problems at all, they sent pictures and were all ready at pickup time. Great experience and I would recommend them to anyone looking for someone to watch their dogs!
Bailey had a great time staying at your house. The pictures during her stay made the whole family feel very good about being away from her. Your family was so lovely. We will definitely use you guys again and recommend to friends and family.
Ginger did an overnighter and she was well taken care of. We received a photo of her and their daughter together and she looked very happy to be there. We will be visiting later this month and again in June. Definitely a 5 star couple.
FABULOUS They treated her like family (As If she's not already Rotten) They several pics of her either having a ball, or passed out contentedly. Totally positive experience. Would I use this fine family again? Already signed up for a week!
Shaun and Erin are amazing! They watch our 1 year old beagle pup, Perry. Perry loves going and is so worn out from paying with their dogs that he falls asleep in the car! Their dogs are extremely friendly and get along great with Perry.
Shaun and Erin are almost always available even on short notice and they put up with my husband's and I terrible schedule.
We are so happy we found someone to watch our fur baby that we trust!
