About Shannon

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband Jeff and I love entertaining our 2 little ones. We are out with them almost every weekend. We figured why not open our home and large backyard to more furry friends? Gozer, a puppy we adopted in February 2016, has been running Grendel, our older dog ragged. She would love more friends for entertainment and Grendel would like a break. This is the perfect time to socialize her. We all love hiking, hitting the park, walks, or just hanging out in the backyard.

Our first dog required "special care" for separation anxiety and could be quite the handful. So we are also familiar with those behaviors and quite understanding. That being said, the dog must be good with other dogs as well as both genders!! This is a must! If there is a question about it please request a meet and greet leaving enough time to accommodate your pup's stay based on the outcome.

Ask for a custom quote for multi-dog households.

Thanks to all of our repeat clients this year- the response has been beyond amazing and we have had so much fun!!! We look forward to seeing some new furry faces next year!!

We were passing through town and needed a dog sitter for the day so we could explore nashville. Shannon came to our hotel room and hung out w our dog Lola. We were super nervous because we didn't know Shannon or Nashville AND it was my first time using Dog Vacay. But I'm so glad we took the leap because Shannon was great. Super responsive - even sent pictures of Lola. Highly recommend her to look after your pups!
Thank you for everything!!
Shannon was great - so flexible with drop off and pick up times and her pups got along really well with ours. She took excellent care of our dog and I wouldn't hesitate to use her again! She is also very good with introducing the dogs so they don't feel overwhelmed. I especially appreciated that!
We received pictures of such a happy dog at night and the next morning.. it was wonderful!! Shannon definitely helped us feel at ease for our short vacation and she was so gracious to take us last minute (within a few hours of needing to be somewhere in Nashville). We will absolutely use Shannon again (if she is willing to take care of our excited puppy again :P)
Shannon and Jeff were great. Our puppy Bucky and their puppy Grover got along great and played all weekend in their big, fenced-in backyard. They sent me multiple pictures of Bucky each day that I was out of town. When we picked Bucky up, he was tired and happy. Thank you!
Shannon was awesome! She took great care of Lily while I was away!
Elvis had a great time on his vacay! Shannon sent pictures throughout the stay and was very accommodating with pick up/drop off. I would highly recomened using Shannon to watch your pup! :)
Very professional.
Shannon was great with fast and accurate information. As I am out of state, my daughter dropped off Neka and the dogcation was a great success!! Thank you Shannon!!!!
I booked my 2 Cavaliers (9mo and 6yrs) to stay with Shannon and her husband and they had the BEST time! Shannon was very quick to respond and very easy to work with. They have a huge, fenced in backyard that my pups loved! Shannon also kept me updated on how they were doing while I was away and sent lots of great action pictures! When I got them back and took them home, they immediately went to sleep and slept through till the next day- They were exhausted from all the fun! I can tell they had a great time! I can't thank you guys enough! Will definitely be a returning client :)
Shannon and her husband took great care of my black lab Emerson during his stay at their place! She sent lots of pictures and was very flexible with my schedule for pick up/drop off. Emerson was exhausted when I picked him up and I know it was because he had a great time playing with their two dogs all weekend in their big fenced in back yard! Thank you Shannon!
Toyo had a great time! He got back Sunday and he still seems tired, he had a blast, thank you guys so much for everything:)
Our dog, Riley, became ill while staying with Shannon. She communicated with us, took him to the vet, and cared for him beyond the call of duty. Am planning on using her services again!
Lady loved staying with Shannon and Jeff, and we felt confident she would be well cared for. They were also great about being flexible when our flight was delayed. We really appreciated the daily picture updates! Lady is looking forward to her next stay!
Coop had a blast
Shannon was great at communicating with me before and during our pup Bella's stay. She sent lots of photos every day. Bella was so happy and tired when we picked her up from playing in their big yard with the other dogs.
Our pup had a great stay with Shannon and Jeff! Their yard is huge and provided plenty of space for him to run and play all week! I got awesome pictures every day of him playing with other pups, running around, and loving life. You know they did a good job when your pup gets home and falls asleep right away for the entire day
Roux had a wonderful time with Shannon, and she came back happy and healthy. I was nervous because I would not be reachable the entire time I was gone, and even though I didn't receive them until after the fact, Shannon still sent me photos of my girl.
Shannon & her husband were fantastic! The huge, fenced in backyard & not requiring my little Tiger to have to sleep in a kennel were the keys to my choosing them. They were very gracious, & sent me the cutest photos that indicated just how comfortable Tiger was with them. They are very quick to respond to texts. I will definitely use them again!
Shannon and her husband were wonderful! They kept me updated each day on what was going on. We had a 3 month old puppy with them which required a bit of extra work and they went the extra mile for her!! Couldn't recommend them more - I will be using them again!
Shannon and Jeff were amazing. We had a meet and greet a week or two before the stay, and they were super with follow up and attention to detail. Oliver, my 4lb long-hair chihuahua, has epilepsy and requires two medicines, 2x a day - they took great care of him - even had him bathed and groomed! Shannon and Jeff took care of Ollie for a full week, and Shannon sent lots photographs every day to let me see for myself how well he was doing - which made my being away from him so much easier. The hardest part was seeing that he was having so much fun, that I'm not convinced he missed me at all!
Shannon and her husband were great hosts for our two dogs over a holiday weekend. Shannon is very communicative about the stay ahead of time and is also very communicative during the stay - with pictures every day! I loved seeing new pictures while we were away. The dogs came back excited (but tired), which is always a good sign! I think they miss Shannon's two dogs!
Shannon was great with my girls. She let me know that they were doing great everyday along with pictures. I will be using her again !
Shannon was great! It was our first time using a pet sitter, so we were a little nervous about it, but after our meet & greet we felt confident in leaving our pups in Shannon's care. She kept us updated with pictures, and overall our pups thoroughly enjoyed themselves, as they passed out as soon as we got home! We'd definitely use her services again!
