About Shelly

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been dog sitting for about 3 years and have been around dogs for much longer than that! My home consists of 2 floors, the first floor is my state licensed dog sitting area! The dogs have 1000+ sq feet inside to play in and they also have their own "rooms" (20-30 sq ft) for private eating time and to "chill out" if they need their alone time. There is a futon and a tv for hanging out and watching tv. The backyard is about 900 square feet and I have a 6' privacy fence that goes around the yard. My living space is on the second floor, so I am on site and within ear shot of the pups!

I accept all breeds, sizes, and ages. I am experienced in giving medication both orally and by injection. I work in a dog shelter with rescued dogs and I have experience with different behavioral issues (anxiety, food aggression, ect) and don't mind the pups who need a little extra.

Safety is #1 priority! I know how important a dog is to a family. Schedule a meet and greet to come by and check the place out and I can answer any questions that you may have about life at my place!!
Thanks! I look forward to making sure your best friend is safe and happy while you're away.

Loves the dogs she's watching and so great with Percy!!!
Shelly was a great hostess for my dog. She was quick to respond and always provided pictures of Berkely while I was away! Would recommend her
Shelly has taken care of our dog several times now and each time we come home to a happy dog!
Shelly has a nice set up - clean and organized. Our whippet needed a little extra attention and Shelly was so good. Shelly is definitely on my A list.
Shelly's place is set up really nice for dogs. We knew ours was in good hands and would have fun socializing with the others. Shelly loves dogs and it is obvious she enjoys hosting them. Would definitely leave our dog with her again.
Shelly is incredibly thorough and has a genuine love for dogs. We didn't have a single concern about our dogs' well being after meeting Shelly. I just hope that she isn't too booked up the next time we need to leave town, because it is obvious that others trust her with the care of their dogs!
Lots of communication before reservation was accepted. She made changes to her schedule to accommodate us. Very polite and accommodating
Shelly was great with our two pups. They seemed like they had a ton of fun at her house over the weekend and we're certainly pooped by the time we got home! We will be using her from now on! ??
Shelley was very friendly, and you can tell that she cares a great deal about providing good care for pets. Our pup came back home happy, and had fun, and we will definitely take him there again!
Shelly is great and she worked really well with our super shy dogm
Shelly is wonderful. We set up a meet and greet where she takes notes on all her dogs, to include vet name, food/amount, medications, special commands, habits of the dog, emergency contact info, etc. she also has a vet she works closely with so if your dog needed a vet for any reason one is available, which I think is great. Shelly is friendly, open, honest and you can tell she cares for the dogs she watches. My pup loved his stay
My dog was very comfortable. Shelly's great!
Shelly was wonderful. Gracie was happy and relaxed when we got home - just perfect!
Rudy came home happy. What more could you ask? Shelly is good with communication and alerting me to any issues as the week went on. Thanks.
I just moved to Saint Louis and didn't know what I was going to do because I had to fly to New York for a week and had no one to watch my 10 year old sheltie/shepherd mix. I came across dogvacay and Shelly and it couldn't have been better. She was organized and caring and sweet and Rudy is going back in two weeks. He had a blast. She sent me a photo and was in communication during the week. Better than a kennel for sure! And we certainly didn't get those inexpensive prices for such good care in New York!
Shelly was really great! I felt very comfortable leaving my dogs with her over the weekend. She is very responsive and diligent. Gus and Zoe had a great time, thank you Shelly!
I know when I leave my dogs with Shelly, she will treat them like family. Over the past few months one of my dogs developed a fear of thunder. Shelly knew how scary 4th of July in the city can be for dogs and she made a point to be home to keep everyone calm.
shelly was awesome. very good with chance and helped him socialize more. would definitely use her again.
We've used Shelly several times, often with last minute reservations. She's been awesome every time! She's great with our dog. He can be skittish in new surroundings and with other dogs. She knows how to introduce him to other dogs, puts up with the inevitable nervous poops, and he always comes home happy. We'll definitely use her again!
Shelly was great when keeping our little dog!! We will definitely board with her again!
Shelly was a great host for Moto, our snuggly lab mix. She was very thorough during our meet and greet about what he would need to have a great stay. She was very accommodating around our schedules. Moto came home absolutely pooped-I think he had a blast!
