Shelly was great with our Truffles. He was happy when we picked him up. It's evident that she and her family enjoy dogs. I would highly recommend her!
Shelly was wonderful and so caring during my dog's stay with her. She and her husband took care of him as though he were their own. Even when he wasn't feeling well the last day, and was to be picked up that night, she called and asked if it would be ok to take him to the vet as he didn't seem himself. We feel confident and very comfortable leaving him with them again knowing that he will be well cared for.
Our Zelda, a young Havanese, had a wonderful time at Shelly's. Zelda has a lot of puppy energy, and Shelly provided lots of love, introductions to family and neighbors, frequent walks outdoors, all in the safe environment of her welcoming home and neighborhood. And Maddox was the perfect example of patience throughout all of Zelda's youngster play antics. We feel fortunate to have found Shelly's Watching' the Dog!
We had Shelly and her husband Tom watch our 14 1/2 old Yorkie. After putting in a request we got the call back within 5 minutes and the communication was great all the way through. Sent pictures throughout the day and were so loving to our older and independent Emi. Their dog Maddox was very sweet and not a problem for a smaller dog to be around. We would highly recommend and would call again next time we are in Naples. Thank you so much! Wonderful experience!
Extremely pleased with our experience with Shelley & Tom & Mattox. My dog Baxter had never been left at a strangers home before as we have used in-home sitters in the past. Baxter was very well taken care of and seemed to enjoy his stay. We would certainly use these guys again for our boy.
Our little papillon had the best time at Shelly's. He went for neighborhood walks and enjoyed hanging out with friendly host dog, Maddux. He looks forward to future stays!
Shelly was great. We went for a meet and greet and Shelly was so welcoming to me and my Lab. We left our Lab with her for 4 nights and she sent pictures and text updates every day. It was so nice to travel with peace of mind that my baby was being well cared for. Shelly's house was immaculate, and I could see how happy my dog was when we picked him up. We will definitely ask Shelly to watch him again the next time we go away. Thanks Shelly!!
Shelly is the best. Our Bailey loves going to visit her. She is so kind and attentive to our four legged buddy.
Shelly and Tom are such kind people and their home is immaculate. Goliath was welcomed with love and had a great stay with them. I felt at ease while away as Shelly was attentive to all the details he required to keep him healthy & safe. She kept me up-to-date daily on how Goliath was doing and the pictures were great.
Shelly and Tom are fantastic!!! It was our first time leaving our Rhodesian Ridgebacks with someone other than close friends or family and it definitely felt like they were in great hands. We received updates on a daily basis with pictures. Our pups were able to go for numerous walks every day, play in the pool and play with their fun dog, Maddocks, as well. When we picked them up, our pups were relaxed, happy and not in a hurry to leave. I could not have asked for someone better to care for our babies while we were gone on vacation!!! We will definitely ask Shelly next time we need someone again!!! Thank you so much !!!
Shelly took care of my 2 dogs for 8 days. This is the first time I felt comfortable leaving my dogs while going out of town without feeling guilty. Shelly took great care of my boys, she walked them daily, & sent pictures to me everyday. We will definitely use Shelly again!
Rex had a great time with Shelly, as usual! She was so kind to send us pictures, which helped us miss him just a little bit less. When we picked him up, we could tell he had a great time and was treated and loved just like a member of the family. We will definitely be repeat guests!
We love Shelly and her family and so does our dog Zipper. They have a beautiful home and really let Zipper be a member of their family when he is there. Shelly keeps us updated on all his activities which include long walks that he loves! When we are on vacay, we know Zipper is on a Vacay too!
Rex had a wonderful time with Shelly! We were unsure how Rex would react to "sharing" attention with her lovely sweet dog Maddox....but everything turned out great! Shelly and her husband are so loving and patient, it put us right at ease. She sent us pictures to show how well Rex settled in, and he came home exhausted from all of the walks and play he enjoyed as their guest. We definitely plan on being repeat customers and highly recommend Shelly to anyone looking for a home away from home for their pup.
Zioper always has a good experience at Shelly's!
Shelly is just the best. She has her own dog who was friendly and very compatible with our two year old male Norfolk Terrier. She treated him just like he was her own. We were very apprehensive about the whole process, having never boarded our dog before. She put us completely at ease, and sent us pictures every day. We come to her area a couple of times a year, always staying with friends where dogs are forbidden. We look forward to using her again.
Shelly and Tom are wonderful hosts. Our dog with separation anxiety always had someone to pet him and he got all the long walks he wanted! Maddox and Trixie are great dog companions for Zipper when he visits!
Shelly is the sweetest most gracious person. Our dog, Abem, loves to stay with her. Shelly treats Abem just like one of her own dogs. Abem makes herself right at home and really enjoys having two doggie friends to visit while mom and dad are gone. I feel so comfortable leaving her which makes my time away more enjoyable. I don't think I could find a better person to watch my dog than Shelly. I highly recommend.
Shelly is excellent! It is very clear that she and Tom love animals and love taking care of them. Her home is warm and immaculate and my Murphy loved being there. Shelly sent updates and pictures of Murphy throughout my absence. He looked happy and loved!
Shelly and Tom gave me piece of mind to know that my Murphy was well taken care of and treated so specially- a priceless thing!
I now feel so relived to know that when I need to be away again, Murphy will have a wonderful home away from home!
Shelly, is a very nice host. She recently hosted my dog for 2 nights. She promptly responded to my request made via the site and followed up with a phone call. She has a large beautiful house and lives in a gated community with excellent sidewalks for long walks. She shared pics of my dog while we were away.

Shelly is genuine dog lover and I highly recommend her services to anyone.
