Fantastic! Would definitely ask them to watch my baby again!!
They were great- clearly love dogs and are on top of it!
Bailey really enjoyed her time with Shannon, her husband and 2 huskies. Plus they are licensed and bonded, which was great for my piece of mind.
This was an all around horrible experience for us. So much so that we had to pick our dog up early in fear that he was being abused.

Summary:
1) They refuse to tell you where your dog is being kept. You have you meet them at a nearby grocery store and then take your dog. They say its because they have had "stalking issues" with other pet owners. RED FLAG.

2) I really hope they are nicer to pets than they are to people. They were flat out mean and abusive to us when they picked up our dog. Full disclosure - we were 30 minutes late at 9:20 PM, but had communicated that we would be late as we were driving from far away on a holiday weekend so traffic was variable. They had initially indicated this wasn't a problem, but things changed dramatically when we arrived. It was absolute torture handing our dog off to a guy who just yelled at us and was taking him to an undisclosed location. He wasn't kind to our dog and tried to immediately grab him and take him. He wouldn't even let us say goodbye.

3) They require that your pet not have been administered pest mediation weeks before arrival. Then when they find pests, they start freaking out and texting you. This was the last straw and we were afraid for our dog's safety, so we had him picked up at great expense.

Of course the guy was again abusive and mean upon pick-up.

I would highly recommend looking elsewhere if you want peace of mind.

Buddy and Cody had a great stay at Shannon's house. I hear Buddy swam most of the time in their creek.
We found Shannon and Mike really easy to work with and flexible also. After we dropped our dog Maggie off, Shannon sent updates and also picture messages of Maggie playing and having a great time. She seemed thoroughly happy and occupied. When we picked Maggie up she seemed happy and full of life so she definitely had a good time! On meeting Mike to collect Maggie, Shannon sent a note with him to tell us when Maggie had last eaten and how she did while she was with them which was nice. We will definitely have them watch Maggie in the future!

Kilo had a blast! She was knocked out as soon as she got home...that's a sign of a great pet sitter!
Shannon was awesome! Our 11 month old golden retriever had a wonderful experience. I would definitely have O'Malley vacation at Shannon's again.
Shannon was great! I was really nervous about using someone new and didn't know how our dog would react as we didn't have time for a meet and greet session, but Shannon was so considerate about keeping me informed that I felt very comfortable. Everything went really well and I will definitely be using her again. She is a kind person that genuinely loves animals. Her kids are very sweet as well!

Shannon and Kevin made our lives so much easier - everything went smoothly and we were able to hit the slopes knowing our pup was well taken care of. We particularly appreciated the photos Shannon sent of our pup playing with the other beautiful dogs in their gorgeous spacious grounds.

Shannon sent me pictures of my dog periodically through her stay. My dog came back well rested and happy. I would board my dog with Shannon again.
Shannon was amazing! We needed someone to watch him for the day while we went skiing and not only was it super convenient to drop him at her (beautiful) home in Truckee, but we felt great all day knowing our little guy was with a true pro. Thank you Shannon!

Shannon was wonderful. Lyra had a great stay any came home exhausted and happy. Will definitely be back.
I was so happy with Shannon and Kevin! They live in outer Truckee and actually drove in to meet us at a more convenient location so we could get up the mountain and ski. They took the dogs out on a walk and let them romp around in their big backyard. I felt totally comfortable with my dogs in their care and I couldn't recommend them more! Thanks Shannon and Kevin! We will definitely be in touch next trip up!

We felt so comfortable leaving our dog with Shannon. He became part of her family while we went skiing over a long weekend. When I picked him up I could tell that he was well cared for--he was happy to see us but not wily. We'll defiantly use Shannon again when we're in Tahoe.

Our two Golden Retrievers stayed with Shannon for 9 days while we were away on our own vacay. They were well cared for and very happy. Shannon and her family are great dog sitters. Shannon sent me daily updates and pictures to put my mind at ease. We'll definitely use them again and would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Shannon!!
