About Shelley

27 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love my dogs they are family to me. In my opinion they are the best company to keep. My dogs also love to have other dogs around. I have a fenced in back yard and live in a very safe and dog friendly community. I am accommodating if there are special needs or requests for certain dogs. My house is already dog proofed and all dogs are welcome. My dogs are very loving and playful. I work full time at an independent company from 8 to 5 but looking for a way to supplement my income. I only live 2 miles from my work so I come home every day during the day at lunch time.

I know I don't have to worry one bit about Our pup being loved on and having a great time!
Shelley was responsive and accommodating. Very easy to work with and took very good care of Roger and sent photos. She was flexible and understanding when we needed to extend Roger's stay due to travel hiccups. Would definitely use her again.
Shelley was very flexible on pick up and drop off time which was extremely helpful to us. Our dog seemed to have a great time, she pretty much slept the entire next day after we brought her home, she was so worn out! Believe she enjoyed playing with Shelley's dogs!

Shelley and Doug did a great job with Ginger during out Fall Break. Ginger had a great time playing with their dogs and we couldn't be happier. Thanks.
Shelly is always awesome! My dogs love going there!!
Our pup had a great time staying at Shelley's. She was flexible with pick up and drop off, sent picture updates and our pup was WORN OUT when we brought him home. We wouldn't hesitate to use her again! Thanks for taking such good care of Azo!
Shelley did a faboulos job taking care of Jasmine and Charlotte, our "children." Shelley stayed in touch through texting and sending pics and videos. Her home is very pet-friendly and pet safe. I can't say enough good things about Shelley. We will contact her for boarding Jasmine and Charlotte. I can truly say she's the best!!! Jan O

Amazing sitter!!! Couldn't be more pleased... From communication to care... I think my dogs didn't want to come back home! Spoiled rotten! Thanks Shelley
This was our first time using DogVacay and we couldn't have had a more positive experience with Shelley. She sent pictures of our dogs playing and responded quickly when sent a message asking how they were doing. Both were worn out for a day and a half after coming back home, which is more than a doggie daycare has ever done. We will be using Shelley in the future!

This was my first experience leaving my dogs using this site, and it was a great experience. Shelley was very accommodating with pick up and drop off and sent pictures while I was away. I have no doubt both of my dogs were well taken care of and will be bringing them back to Shelley later this month.

Shelly was awesome! She made me feel so comfortable leaving my two boxers with her at her home! I have had experiences with dog hotels/boarding and I couldn't be any happier with my dogs at Shelly's house! She is truely a per person!
Shelley was very friendly. Her house is very dog friendly and she was warm and inviting. She sent me a couple pictures of my dog while I was away. She accommodated me when I needed to pick up my dog a bit earlier than arranged. I was very happy with this experience and will definitely use dog vacay in the future.

Shelley's was our first experience with Pet Vacay! She responded quickly. She was very easy and accommodating to our short timeframe and changes in booking. We appreciated that she had a great fenced backyard and doggy friends of her own that were ready to play!

Our dog was worn out and happy! Shelley was very flexible with drop off and pickup. Great deal and much better than a kennel. We were confident leaving our fur baby and highly recommend Shelley.
Shelley was great! She sent me pictures while on vacation and was very quick to respond to any messages I sent her. It seemed like Porter had a fun time playing with the other dogs! Shelley had lots for her to do. Thanks again!
Shelley does a great job in caring for our pup. She clearly loves dogs and goes to great lengths to make sure they're comfortable on their vacay. She's also very flexible with scheduling...which makes coordinating drop off/pick up times easy!
I was SO nervous to leave my dogs somewhere they had never been but Shelley made me feel at ease. The girls had so much fun and were WORE out when they got home. Overall, such a positive experience, highly recommended.
Shelley sent photos maybe every other day, even though we hadn't requested them. No indication of any problem, and our dog seemed fine when we came back for him.
Our boys had a blast!!!!
My dog was in great hands with Shelley! She had lots of other pups to play with was well taken care of. She was even worn out for a couple days because of how much fun she had. I will be booking again for my next vacation.

I liked that there were multiple gates around the house to keep dogs in the kitchen or bedroom. My dog is used to it so I was comfortable having her stay wherever she needed to be kept.

Shelley is an excellent care-giver. My dogs were both very happy and returned home exhausted from all of the play time and totally stress free! We will definitely use Shelley again!
Shelley was amazing! My girlfriend and I planned a last minute 4 of July trip thanks to Shelley's sitting. I got updates and a picture of my pup while I was gone. I will definitely come back.
Shelley was awesome! She sent daily updates and Hobbes seemed happy the whole time!
This was my first time using dogvacay. I ususally board my dogs at the vet and they are kept in crates most of the day. This trip was longer than usual and I was hesitant to make them stay crated so much so I started looking for options.

Shelly was great. She had three of our dogs and one of them was a handful. Shelly was patient. She was accommodating. The dogs were all happy when I went to pick them up. If she is willing, I would definitely use her again in the future.

Our Dog came back happy and tired. Already booked again.
Our boys had a great time with Shelley, Doug and their dogs. They came home fully worn out from a weekend of playing. Thanks!
Shelley took great care of my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again in the future.
Wonderful people...great experience.. Thanks
Great to get daily pics of our pup. He was healthy and happy when we picked him up. Will definitely book with Shelley again!
Our dog's stay with Shelley was GREAT! She was very flexible with drop-off and pick-up times and sent pictures while we were away. Rufus has not been around other dogs much and was a bit timid, so I was worried about how he would respond to her dogs. Her dogs are so friendly and fun that Rufus not only got over his fear but had a blast with some new friends. I highly recommend her and will use her again!

Shelley has watched my dog twice. She does a wonderful job! It is truly a vacation for Ralphie! He never seems to want to leave and is always tired when he comes home! I highly recommend Shelley!
Great first experience boarding our dog. Shelly knows her stuff, kept connected with us, and gave us updates on how our pup was doing. 10/10 will request her again!
I really liked Shelly, and her boyfriend was also very nice and helpful! Their home was clean, nice, and had a fully fenced in backyard which made me feel safe about leaving Kya there. Shelly sent me pictures of Kya along with updates, and always texted me back promptly when I asked how Kya was doing. I recommend using Shelly as a pet sitter and I will definitely use her in the future!!
