About Sheila

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
When you want to feel secure that your family member is being cared for while you are away call Sheila at The Wright Dog House to put your mind at ease.

I have been a pet owner my entire life and can't remember a time when I didn't have a fur baby. I have been a foster parent for special skills dogs for the Lions Foundation of Canada four separate times.

Our guests have access to the whole house and are invited to share the furniture for cuddles or sleeping. There is a quiet room for those that enjoy some private time and a huge, fully fenced backyard for lots of playtime

The Wright Dog House has been in the dog sitting business for a few years now and I truly enjoy having day or overnight visitors. I have a very laid back Labrador who acts as the perfect host and a 15 yr old cat who is extremely tolerant of all our inquisitive guests.

We left "Shelby" with Sheila for the first time in early December. It was a good decision. The moment we arrived the attention was put on Shelby, making sure that an introduction to the other dogs (I think there were 4 or 5 at the time) was not sudden, but rather one at a time. Shelby can be timid but it only took a few moments for her to settle in - and all the while Sheila was talking to us, she was also paying close attention to what was going on in the pack. Being able to watch videos and see photos of Shelby while we were away really put our minds at ease - and she was clearly having a great time! When we picked her up she was happy and healthy (and perhaps a wee bit apprehensive to leave all her new pals). Shelby was clearly well cared for and made our time away more relaxing. We would definitely recommend leaving your pet in the care of Sheila!
Sheila was fantastic with our Tommy! She responded to our questions quickly and showed her love for our dog and her other visitors in her daily Facebook posts. She made us feel good and reassured that Tommy was being well taken care of and we enjoyed our vacation more knowing that he was in good hands!
I think Ben has spent as much time this month with Sheila as he has us...LOL..He had another great weekend. Thanks again Sheila for peace of mind knowing that he's happy, safe and comes home tired!! Happy puppy is a tired one! :-)
Bentley had another great weekend with Sheila!! Always a good sign when they are happy to return for another visit.
Sheila was amazing with our puppy. Charlotte had so much fun and we loved that Sheila kept us updated about her. Sheila made our puppy felt so welcome and at home, that when we went to pick her up, Charlotte didn't want to come with us lol.

And her dog Griffin is a sweetheart and was very gentle with Charlotte.

We loved our experience and we are so thankful that Sheila took so much care of Charlotte like she was her own.

Thank you so much Sheila!!
Lola had a great visit and thank you Sheila for taking such good care of her.
I left Tigger with Sheila for 3 weeks. Sheila was great with him. she is loving, patient and gentle. Tigger came back happy and healthy. She has a good sense of how dogs behave and she understands each dog and their mannerisms. Sheila was able to help Tigger be himself and settle into his new environment. She posted pictures/video's of him regularly and it was nice to be able to see him while we were away. Thank you Sheila.
Absolutely an amazing experience. Sheila was very accomodating of my last minute request, and was helpful, kind and left me feeling confident in my choice for my pup. Will be returning for sure!
Bentley came home Happy and Tired from his first weekend with Sheila! He had a great time and is looking forward to seeing Sheila and Griffin soon. Sheila is warm and friendly and easy to work with which is always nice in this hectic world we live in. Felt completely at ease leaving Ben with her for the first time and is nice to know we have somewhere he can stay and we don't have to worry about him.
Sheila was amazing....I was out of town when Lola got sick and Sheila took charge immediately and kept me informed the whole time and never left Lola's side. Thank you Sheila for all you did for my baby and me! See you soon.
Our Cockapoo Winnie loved her week with Sheila. She came home a little more socialized and very tired from all her playtime! She retreated our pup as her very own!
Very positive experience. Sheila is a very caring and responsible pet host and we were most fortunate to have come across her. We have no hesitation in recommending her to others.
Sheila is great with Abby - we love that she has terrific playmates for Abby & that she reinforces training with her (as although Abby is very smart she is also very stubborn!!).
My Shitzu-Pekingese stayed with Sheila for 9 days. He came home as one extremely happy dog! In the past, Max would be extremely depressed when we dropped him off or when we arrived at the location (e.g. pet hotel), and was usually depressed for days at home. Not the same with the Wright Dog House - he came home healthy and happy. He's our Max with full of personality without any signs of depression. I loved watching the videos with him in them while I was away. Max is 8 years old and had a major back operation done by a Neurologist, hence we were concerned that it wouldn't work with other dogs. Not a problem - thanks to Sheila! We highly recommend her and wouldn't hesitate to bring Max to her again.
Sheila was amazing! My dog Molly loved it there, surrounded with other pups she can play with and a huge backyard to run around in. I'm sure she misses it there! Molly stayed with Sheila for just over 2 weeks, and I didn't have to worry one bit. Sheila was very warm and friendly, communicative and easy to reach, and I loved the photos & videos Sheila shared of Molly's stay there. I'd definitely have Molly back in Sheila's care next time :)
Sheila gave us the piece of mind knowing our dog was in good hands and having lots of fun while we were on vacation!
Sheila was great with Buddy. He loved being at her home. I think now he kind of wishes he was back there playing with all his other dog friends.
I have been using Sheila's boarding and daycare services ever since March 2016, and boy am I glad I found her. I can leave my 2 little ones with her without a worry no matter if its for one day or multiple days at a time, I know my girls are in good hands and well care for. Thank you Sheila for being such a great host!
Abby's 2nd visit at the Wright house was as great as the 1st!! I really love how Sheila keeps me informed as to how Abby is doing while she is there.
An excellent vacation for our dog. We had great peace of mind knowing how well Sheila would look after him. Our dog was as relaxed as we were after a vacation. We would highly recommend Sheila as someone who really knows how to look after and keep a pet. Sheila will be the first person we look to for our dog when we take our next vacation. 13 out of 10.
I was very nervous about leaving Lola overnight as this was the first time since she was put on anti-seizure medication but after meeting Sheila and her puppy guest on our meet & greet, I felt more confident that Lola would get the care that she required. Her puppy guest where happy which says a lot about the environment that they are in!
Sheila picked Lola up for her overnight and let me know immediately when she had her and assured me with follow up texts that she was settling in just fine. Then the pictures came which put a big smile on my face and I then knew I had made the right choice.
Would I consider leaving my fur baby with Sheila again? Yes without a doubt. She is understanding to your concerns & needs as well as your fur baby's needs.
Thank you Sheila!!!! Lola is looking forward to her next overnight with you.
Sheila was a very accommodating host and a lovely person. Her love of dogs really shows. Thanks again.
Abby's first vacay was a terrific experience thanks to Sheila. The videos that Sheila posted showed us how much fun Abby was having playing with her new friends. Will definitely be using Sheila's services again.
Our 3 dogs had a wonderful time at Sheila's Home! She is great with her dogs, she really cares. I would highly recommend Sheila's dog vacay !
It was a great pleasure for Daisy to stay at the Wright House. She was playing and had a good time all the days. She got home in a good health and we were so happy to see her every day on social media in a lot of pictures and movies.
Thank you very much Sheila,
Sheila was great. Gracie was well cared for and happy. She came home exhausted from all her playing!
Thanks Sheila for taking great care of Coco! We'll definitely be having more playdates and sleepovers with you.
First I have to say that you! Sheila, for opening up your home for doggie owners to have a fabulous fun place for their beloved pet's kid's really to spend the day or night with owners peace of mind knowing that you're pet is well cared for.

My Kyla just love's Sheila and enjoyed her stay. She fit right in and had tons of fun playing with the other doggie in a safe environment. It truly is a vacation place. Sheila has made her home there home and no place is of limits. It's doggie prof.

Sheila will always be my first choice when I need a sitter.
Sheila showed great patience with our veny anxious little girl. It was clear from our first meeting that we could feel confident that she was in good hands and a loving environment. Sheila was able to provide ideas for helping Gidget adapt to her new experiences and we loved being provided pictures and videos during our trip. We would not hesitate to recommend Sheila to others or leave Gidget in her care again.
We loved the service Shelia provided for our 3 furbabies. Shelia has nice big back yard for them and play which is what they need and TLC which is also what they got and we got picture updates while we were away. We will be using Sheila again.
Sheila is very welcoming and friendly!! During our first meet & greet session we learned that Sheila would be unable to accommodate our fur babies for the dates we requested but it was really sweet of her to suggest a friend of hers ( who's a darling too!!) Also we were concerned about leaving Bailey & J├Ąger for 5 days ( cos thats the longest ever we have been apart from these two) but she did an amazing job and our babies wanted to stay there longer. She took personal interest in understanding their respective needs and even baked home-made cookies for them. Griffin is an awesome fur-ball, he's really adorable and was patient with our baby boy. Sheila kept us posted via facebook with continuous updates of fun pictures and videos. Some of the images were captured brilliantly!! (We're going to frame a few!! Thanks for that Sheila!! ) It was a wonderful experience altogether!! See you soon :) - Bala & Supri
Love Sheila!! She's extremely loving and treats your pet like her own ????
Saphira and I would highly recommend Sheila! Being that Saphira is only a puppy I was very nervous about where we left her but Sheila put all the worries to rest! Saphira can't wait to go back!
I found Sheila last minute and by pure accident. Am I ever so glad I did. I went off to Europe with no qualms or worries after our meet and greet meeting. Sheila was posting little video clips almost daily and I saw how much fun the dogs were having. I have been telling my friends all about it ever since. I have also been considering to take Jaxon over there for play days just for fun a couple of days a month. Thank you Sheila for making my time away so much more fun and relaxed.
Sheila was great in general and with our little pup Bentley. He thoroughly enjoyed his time there with the other dogs and made some new friends. Thx Sheila!
Sheila was fantastic! Milo has separation anxiety and is working on his confidence. Sheila knew just what to do to support Milo feeling welcomed without adding to his anxiety. We are planning weekly daycare visits with Sheila.

Thanks, Sheila for taking such great care of Milo!

Karen & Dan
Sheila was amazing. Our Nacho stayed a few days with her and she kept us updated with pictures and even videos! It was great to see him so relaxed and happy. When he came home he went right back to his old routine-- a great sign because other times he's needed a few days to decompress and de-stress from having been away from home for a while. We highly recommend her. Thank you again, Sheila! Nacho will definitely be coming back for more visits :)
Another wonderful day for Hugo. Thank you so much Sheila for taking good care of my Hugo. He came home straight to bed :) Sheila definitely has such passion for dogs. Totally recommend her!!
Sheila and Griffin are great hosts!! We felt at ease when we first met her and when we left our Ash with her.
My dogs loved spending the day with Sheila, Griffin and little Timothy: thanks for everything can't wait for their next visit
Sheila was a delight. Our two Border Collies loved staying with her. They got more than enough exercise in her big yard. And Sheila went the extra mile on a few fronts--nightly brushings and homemade dog treats. I would highly recommend her.
Sheila was amazing! She made us feel at ease by updating us with pictures, videos and emails on Timothy's progress during our vacation.
Timothy looked like he was having an amazing time at Sheila's home. Home baked treats and lots of love!
Timothy can't wait to go back!!
My Hugo had a fun and great time! He came home so tired of playing - straight to bed :) Thank you Sheila for taking care of my fur-son! Definitely would recommend her!!
Sheila is an amazing host, is caring, and gives that special touch of sending us pictures and updates during the day. My two fur babies were tired when they got home, a sign they had a great day! Thank you Sheila, miko and layla will be paying you visit this week again. :)
