About Shawn

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! Welcome to my profile, I am Shawn & I offer pet sitting in YOUR HOME. Where your pets can remain at home with their familiar and comfortable surroundings without the added stress of going to a boarding kennel or being taken with or dropped off elsewhere. I am a mom to two girls ages 20 & 16 and a wife to my husband for 25+ years. We own an Australian Shepherd who is a rescue, and have opened our home to three amazing cats whom have been rescued off the streets and given a 2nd chance. (actually my own neighborhood - people move & leave their pets behind) I also am active in basic obedience & Agility (for fun). I am a professional pet sitter and have been for well over 25 years.


Services I offer:
Effective as of August 1st 2016 for the rest of the year I ONLY accept:

Drop in Visits /(Come & Go) $15 per visit.



All entailed - dog-cat checks, house checks, medication/insulin injections, throw the ball/Frisbee, clean up after your pet, feed, water, bring in the mail, picking up the newspaper, putting out the garbage/recycling bins. Turning lights on-off. Just sitting with your pet and giving attention. Your pets are treated as MY pets (family) while you are away. They will be spoiled and have lots of love & care while you are gone.


I have experience in all breeds but have had and sit for the majority of these breeds (Golden Retrievers, Boxers, Pit Bulls, Shelties, Australian Sheperds etc.), special needs (Deaf, Blind) & (separation anxiety).


I accept ALL breeds of dogs. Even the so called bully breeds.


Medications - I am experienced in Insulin injections, giving pills, major surgery recovery, following veterinarians rules & procedures. I am also certified in pet first aid.


I stay in contact with you through pictures & communication over texting while you are away.


Some clients have dogs, cats, rabbits, fish & other animals. I’ve recently had a few with horses & goats. BUT, I do NOT service birds, snakes or spiders.


PLEASE check my calendar to plan your going away dates, I update every 2 days.


I will watch up to 2 dogs for 1 price, any dogs over 2 in household, I charge $10 per dog.


My Prices:

~ $15 per visit - for Drop in (Come & Go) within the 20mile radius.
Feed breakfast, let out to go potty, enjoy the weather & just sit out for a bit, play, play, some more play or just sit & relax & get some petting & love in, then dinner if needed with letting out to go potty.


New Clients will have a meet & greet done before I will accept any bookings. Please send me a message with your dogs or cats (breeds), dates, Location (city with cross streets) & any other questions for a quote.

After our meet and greet and all are a good fit. I will follow up with a quote, the booking needs to be paid within 72hrs as I need to keep my dates open for other clients who are willing to commit and pay right away. Once paid I am locked in to care for your pet on the dates paid for.


Service Range - Neighborhoods listed are areas I currently I have clients in:
Buckeye (Tartesso, Sonoran Vista, Watson Estate, Verrado, Blue Horizon), Goodyear (Pebble Creek, Estrella Mountain, Cotton Flower, Canyon Trails, Las Brisas), Litchfield Park (Palm Valley), Waddell, Surprise (Sun City Grand), North Peoria. Pretty much anywhere along the 303. West Valley area. (If in doubt ask)

Shawn took good care of Cooky, making sure he went for walks, had water and food, and she spent time giving him lots of attention. We loved receiving pictures and updates every day. Shawn is highly recommended by us and we also hope to request another dogvacay with her again soon!

Shawn has taken excellent care of our bulldog, Dora, in the past, and this time was no different! Dora was happy to see us arrive home, and wasn't depressed or hyper the way she used to be when we took her to kennels or to someone else's home. She loves to be pampered in her own home! The reservation process is easy, too!

We have four dogs and Shawn was very good about trying to adjust to all of their different personalities. We appreciated her pictures while we were gone and her promptness in her appointment to meet us. The house was left very tidy and doggie deposits were picked up outside when we returned. Shawn is quiet in personality, but it was apparent she enjoys animals.

Shawn F. was an outstanding dog parent! She sent pictures twice a day with cute captions, kept us informed about Dora's daily activities, and really cared about our dog! Thanks, Shawn!
Shawn was such a great sitter! Eve and Roland had a great time with her. She even took the time to send mommy pictures, which was very nice. We will definitely use Shawn anytime she is available! I've even told all my friends about her!
