About Shelly

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a dog walker who loves going for hikes, yoga and playing ball. If your dog is a dog park kind of dog or a beach dog, we can do that too! It all depends on the pup and what they like. My pup can hike for 2 hours even though she weighs 4 lbs...she has all that puppy energy still!

Overnights: $40.

Walking: $20 for $30 min walk
$30 for 1 hour walk

Please request a Meet & Greet with me either before booking or before the dog arrives! I love to meet the pups and get to know them as well as reassure the pet parents that their dog will be cared for in a nice environment. We take daily walks or hikes, and have lots of local doggy friends to have play dates with if staying more than a few days and a nice yard.

In your request, please state what dates you need boarding. Please stick to your drop off and pick up times once set with me.

I ask for updated vet info and an emergency contact that will be local and available while you are gone. If your dog is sick, I will want to take him or her to your own vet.

*Please do be aware that if your pup causes large or frequent messes, I do charge a cleaning fee equal to one day ($40). By "large/frequent messes" I mean multiple potty accidents, vomit, blood, on beds, walls, furniture, curtains, etc. That said, I do not charge a cleaning fee if it's a smaller occasional accident. I recommend crating or gating your pup if you are unsure of their potty behavior outside of your home. I also can use a pee pad if they are unable to hold it.

Shelly lives in a cozy home in a quiet neighborhood, which is perfect for providing undivided attention and care for your pup. She is an active dogwalker to many and would love to include your pets! She's extremely flexible with scheduling and meeting you and your pets in order to provide you with high quality care.
My dogs had an absolute blast with Shelly. From the daily photo updates she sent, it was clear they were very well taken care of and that Shelly has a real love of animals. Thanks Shelly - we'll be back!
I have a dog with separation anxiety and Shelly treated him as if he were her own! She was available, letting me know details of how he was doing the entire day!
Shelly has long been our regular walker so it was only natural that we would turn to her for boarding. We were thrilled to receive photos almost daily.
Shelly was awesome! Her place is only 5 mins away from Silverlake. She took my little princess Lilo to her dentist appt. Very accommodating & great communication. We will definitely reach out again pretty soon! Thanks again!
Shelly was extremely considerate and accommodating. We had a great meet and greet and she immediately put me at ease. She worked with my times when I booked dog boarding in the last minute.The dogs were happy and wagging their tails when I saw them again!
Shelly was so amazing with our baby pup! Even sent us updates and pictures! Will definitely be having our pup go to her from now on when needed!
Shelly is so fantastic! She's kind, loving and was really welcoming to our dog, Rosie. She has a super cute dog, Pepper, who was never at a shortage of energy to play with Rosie. Shelly was great at sending photos and giving us updates while we were away. We would and will definitely work with Shelly again. I think Rosie was a little sad the night we brought her home because she missed her 2nd paw family! :)
My dog is a special edition and can't be around other dogs so Shelly was very accommodating in checking on him, giving him long walks, and making sure he was happy over the long weekend. He seemed happier when we came back and calmer which showed he was exercised and given love. We will definitely go with Shelly again.
Shelly was great. Very responsive, everything worked as planned. She really got to know Charlie, and he seemed very happy when we got back. She sent sweet pictures and reports so we knew he was doing well. She has nice outdoor space for dogs. We plan to vacay with her again!
Took amazing care of my pups.
Shelly was great with Chopper! He seemed very well taken care of and Shelly kept us updated daily with pics and videos. We were worried at first because he is just a puppy, but Shelly took real good care of our baby. We will use Shelly again for any future trips or play dates! Shelly you Rock!
Shelly is great. So loving and spoils my pup. I've used her for walks and overnights. She even took my pup to the Beach while staying with her and gave her a bath. I never worry about Bae while I'm gone and she is with Shelly. I love all the updates and pictures she sends while im on vacation.
Shelly was great especially with my lady minute change. Sent me pics and updates so I could be at ease in my vacation. Pup seemed just as happy as when she is home with me.
Shelly is GREAT! Emi was all smiles when we picked her up. We can tell that Shelly gave her lots of love and attention and Emi feels comfortable in her home. It's always hard to leave your dog when you go away, but it's such a relief to know that they are in good hands. We are so happy we found Shelly and will definitely go back every time we need a sitter.
We love shell!
Fun times all around
Always flexible
They are best friends
Shelly is like a second mom to my little pups. She genuinely cares for my dog and provides so much care for him. I am never worried when he's in her care.

Super flexible with times, which is so very important for me because I have such little time.

she always sends amazing updates, lots of details.
Shelly took great care of our dog, Bella, this past weekend. She gave us daily updates and took lots of pictures. She played fetch every morning and give lots of kisses and cuddles. When we picked Bella up she made sure to say bye to Shelly. We are glad we are now home with our baby girl, but won't hesitate to leave Bella in the awesome care of Shelly. Thank you, Shelly!!
Dita has stayed with Shelly in the past so I knew both of my pups would be in good hands. I was a little nervous leaving Gino with a sitter since he's such a picky little guy but, Shelly put me at ease and was great with Dita and Gino :) Thank you.
Shelly is so caring. I think my pups likes her more than me. :)
Shelly is always so good to my little Naps. I am so happy to have found her.
Shelly thank you so much for watching Ginger! This was my first time using dog vacay and Shelly really came through. I left my baby ginger with Shelly for a week and got updates on my dog daily and knew the whole time ginger was in good hands.
