About Shante

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a family of three with a sweet Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Maya who is an absolute cuddle bug. My 10 year old daughter loves animals and would have several more if she could so we opted to offer our services pet sitting.


*We take only one client at a time enabling us to give your dog the same attention and affection they are used to at home.

*We limit the size of dogs we care for to only small breeds.

*We live just steps away from Garfield Park in a 1,400 square foot home.

*Our backyard is enclosed and is great for playing.

*We have lots of dog toys and high quality organic treats plus the companionship of our affectionate Cavalier, Maya.

On a typical day we wake up, take Maya out for a quick potty break, play, feed and give her fresh filtered water then I head out for school drop off. When I return I like to take a long leisure walk with Maya in tow! Working from home allows me to have burst of playtime and plenty of availability to take the dogs out to potty. After school we like to head over to the park for play time and another walk if time and interest allows. In the evening just before the family eats we feed Maya (and any other little dog who may be in our care) then it is more playtime before we all head potty then to bed.

We love animals and would share tons of affection and we will text you photos and updates for your peace of mind.

(Please note daycare is only offered to pets that are boarding or past clients.)

I always travel with my fur baby but had a week vacation planned and could not take my little guy with me. I had booked a sitter but they had an unplanned conflict - Shante' was able to help me last minute and I am so grateful!


Quick Service - Shante' promptly answered my email then in less than an hour she confirmed with me that she could board my toy poodle in her home.

Detailed Intake Process - She had me fill out an extensive Client and Pet Information Sheet that asked about my poodle's every need and my expectations. It detailed when my dog ate, slept and went for walks. From the form alone I could tell they were going to give my little guy all the attention he was used to getting a home!

Customer Service - We were really lucky that we had such a great sitter, Shante and her family boarded our dog and gave him round the clock love which is something that could not have been offered in a kennel. In fact I think they were able to spend more time each day with my poodle than I am typically able to and I know my little one would be happy to visit again.

Shante, Mackenzie and Maya were a great fit for our 11 month old Cavalier/Poodle, Axel. This was his first time away from us, for a whole week, and they were ready for the challenge. They gave him lots of affection, walks, and play time. Shante sent updates and photos. She was very responsive to our inquiries and even passed along some dog care tips. Knowing that he was receiving such loving care - as if he were their own puppy - made our time away more enjoyable. Thank you so much!
Shante, Mackenzie and Maya were wonderful hosts for our Bento & Biscuit! This was our first time leaving our fur babies with someone other than relatives so we were very nervous. However, we are so glad we discovered DogVacay and found Shante! During our meet & greet, I really appreciated that she wanted to know everything about our doggies to ensure they would get the same love & attention they receive at home (and they did)! She was also great at keeping with the routine our doggies have at home since we recently adopted Biscuit and needed her on a schedule. She only hosts one "doggie family" at a time so she was able to devote her time to our doggies. She genuinely wanted to give our Bento & Biscuit the very best care. Shante sent photos and updates and I felt very at ease knowing that our fur babies were in good hands. I would highly recommend Shante if you are looking for someone to give the same TLC you give your doggies at home. I would love for Shante to host our Bento & Biscuit again!
Shante was amazing! Not only did she update me throughout the days Auggie was with her, she made sure Auggie's needs were met in every way! He was truly spoiled! I can't wait to book with her soon!
