About Shey

27 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a third-grade teacher and although I love my kiddos, I have an affinity for dogs. They are each unique and always bring a smile to my face.
My dog loving partner works evenings, therefore she is available for potty breaks and anxiety issues during the day.
I have a friendly Boston Terrier named Gabrielle that hasn't met a dog or human she hasn't liked. She's a bit of a clown and keeps me on my toes. Each animal is my priority and I have no problem adapting to their daily routines and personality. Gabs loves to play fetch and demands morning lovey time and a bedtime treat followed by snuggles.Your pup is welcome to sleep with us as well.
We enjoy playing fetch,doggie brain puzzles, going to the park, taking car rides and going for walks, or just playing in the fenced backyard.
( Please note: chain link fence is around 3 feet. There are dogs on two sides of the yard. I do not board certain breeds due to comfort levels of other clients. The cat is not declawed and generally stays out of the way of the dogs. We have a full basement if there is a concern about the cat.)

Pics and videos will be sent to you daily. FaceTime your pup if you'd like!
Thank you in advance for trusting Gabrielle, Scout, Kelly, and myself with your family member, we promise to treat them like familia as well. Book now for a vaycay they won't forget!
I am happy to provide references upon request.

Awesome as always!!
Shey was awesome as always, Dugan loves going to see her and Miss Gabby! Thank you!
Shey is great! Just like a second mom!
Shey was great from the first message I sent to her. She was always quick to respond to any questions I had and was also very knowledgable about puppy behaviors. Shey sent me photo and video updates of my puppy, which I loved! My puppy was obviously having a great time and he slept all day after his stay from having too much fun! I would 100% recommend Shey to anyone looking for a great place for your dog. My puppies next vacation will be with her!!

I can not express how happy we are with finding Shey. She was great with our dog, sending photos and videos to let us know our dog was in great hands. Shey is awesome and we were so relived to have found her! We would highly recommend Shey!!
Shey did a wonderful job with Moose and kept us updated with pictures, videos, and messages. She truly cares about the pets she watches and it showed!
Shey met with is in advance and showed is her place. Asked lots of questions. Even took the time to learn how our dog likes his frisbee thrown to him. She walked them every day and let them sleep in her bed. They may not want to come home! We will look for reasons to leave town knowing Shey can help us out.
Thank You!

Shey was great would recommend her highly
Shey is the best, she always goes above and beyond! Thank you for taking such great care of our big guy!
We loved Shey! She kept us up to date continuously on our little guy. She really went the extra mile to make sure he was comfortable and happy. He had tons of fun, and I loved getting the updates and seeing how happy he was in all his pics & videos. I think he misses his buddies, especially Gabbi!

Shey is awesome! Pixie loves going to Shey's and is well cared for. She is treated like family! We bring Pixie to Shey anytime we leave town.
As always, Shey and Gabriel treated Lupita like a star!
Shey and Gaby were very good hosts! Our Charlie seemed to have had a great vacation time, plus Shey was excellent in updating us daily about their time with Charlie. Videos and pictures gave us peace of mind about leaving Charlie behind for our vacation. Thank you so much for taking such good care of him, Shey! We will for sure become regulars!

Shey is always great with Poochie, we love her!!!
Gabby and shey are the best. They took great care of our sabastian. I think he might have had a better vacation then we did. We will plan to always stay friends with gabby ans shey. She sent us videos and pictures the whole time.
Shey was great. The communication up front was solid and she did a great job with pictures and videos while we were away. She has a true love of dogs and it shows in the care she takes of her "house guests." I recommend Shey for your dog!
Shey kept us posted with Ava so often we feel so comfortable leaving her. She seldom goes to a dogsitter but with this stay with Shey she looks like she was really on dog vacay, like a vacation! With the updates we've received, she was given more attention than we've given her at home. We know now where we can leave our spoiled Ava next time. Thank you so much Shey!

Shey was so nice in accommodating my Ava 1 day early without any hazzle. She made us and specially our Ava feel at ease. So happy with our last minute experience.
Shey was awesome. I was nervous about leaving my baby while I went on vacation. But Shey and Gabby put my mind at ease the minute I met them. I got pictures, video and texts every day. They pampered my Phoebe. I was able to enjoy my vacation because I knew she was in good hands.

As always, Shey is great! Penny loves spending time there and the updates are great.
Shey is amazing. She is communicative and sends periodic updates, picture and videos throughout our trips. We know our dog is as loved and cared for when she is with Shey as she is at our house.
I felt comfortable leaving my dogs with Shey and Gabrielle. She sent me pictures, videos, and messages frequently of how they were doing. She treated them like her own dogs.
Shey is a great sitter, you can tell she genuinely loves dogs!!
Shey was wonderful with Dugan, she went above and beyond to make us and our big guy feel comfortable. All the video and picture updates were wonderful and fun! Dugan will be missing Shey and Gabi this week! Thank you Shey!
Hans always loves a stay with Shey! And Gabby.
Shey saved the day again! Amazing and love taking my dog there.
Shey and Gabi are amazing and made our Kiki feel right at home and treated her like family. Kiki needs a special type of care and Shey went above and beyond to accommodate her. No kennel or pet resort can compare to the type of attention Shey provides. Shey provides text and video updates which was comforting know our Kiki was in great hands. Shey's pup, Gabi, makes every pup feel welcome - she is the friendliest dog :) Shey even taught Kiki how to play tug of war with Gabi! Thank you Shey and Gabi!

Shey provides the best care for my dog. He looks forward to seeing her.
Shey was an awesome host for Sandy! She kept me updated with pics and videos. Sandy seemed to have a great time. I highly recommend her.
I have two dobermans that I had never left with anyone else before and I cannot say enough positive things about Wigglebottoms Resort! Shey takes the anxiety out of being away from your fur babies with photo updates and news, and she loves them like her own. I was so thankful for Shey and Gabi and will definately be booking future vacays with her.

Shey (and Gabrielle) are absolutely amazing!! Our dog Molina has been staying with Shey since she was a puppy, and we couldn't be happier. The dogs always seem to be happy and active, and they have a lot of space and friends to play with in the house and yard. We always get lots of photo and video updates, and are 100% comfortable leaving her in Shey's care. HIGHLY recommend - A+++!

Shey was a great host. She kept us up-to-date on the dogs and did everything to make them comfortable.
Hans and I both feel Shey is great!
This was Penny's second stay with Shey and Gabrielle. I was updated each day and it looked like she was having the best time in the photos. Would absolutely recommend.
Shey was fabulous and my Teddy had a wonderful time.. I think he's a bit depressed not to have his friend in Gabrielle to play with and the adventures they had. I got pictures everyday, and even a video one day.. it was great to see him so well taken care of while my husband and I had our getaway.

Shey goes the extra mile.
This was Ruby's second stay with Shey. Ruby is a very active dog and Shey makes sure she gets plenty of exercise and attention. I highly recommend Shey!
From the first contact I had with Shey, she was warm, welcoming and you could tell she loved dogs! After our meet and greet, I knew she would be the perfect person to take awesome care of our pups. Shey kept them for a week and she kept us updated with photos, texts and videos to make sure we knew they were okay. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Shey is absolutely the best! She was extremely accommodating during my dogs recent stay. I was updated during my entire trip and really allowed me to be on vacation. I will definitely book again when I'm out of town. A real vacation for both myself and my pup!

Shey is flexible and Hans loves her. Totally meets our needs.
Shey was awesome! We were out of the country and had no internet access and I didn't worry for a second! When I returned to the country all of her updates started rolling in and I could tell my dog had a great time! I would definitely book with her again! Thanks for allowing us to have a worry free vacation!

Hans was relaxed and obviously fond of Shey when I picked him up. Ideal care for him.
We were going on our first vacation in three years and honestly, finding affordable lodging and care for our dog, Penny, was one of my main concerns. I didn't want her to spend a week in a kennel. I took a chance and booked Shey and have absolutely no regrets. Shey sent us photos, videos, and text updates throughout our stay. I could see that Penny was enjoying herself and that Shey was knowledgeable about dogs, attentive, perceptive, and caring at the same time. I knew my doggie was in great hands. Shey has a nice, big backyard (surrounded by dogs in other backyards); her home is cozy and clean (especially for all the dogs that hang out there); Gabby loves to play and she and Penny hit it off immediately. I would not hesitate to use Shey's services again. In fact, I think Penny would love to visit "Auntie Shey" and Gabby sometime soon...I will have to think of an excuse as we are unlikely to vacation soon. Thank you, Shey!

Libby Bell had an awesome stay with Shey this past week. Not only was she super accommodating to both our needs, she also made sure to keep me updated multiple times a day. I know Libby can't wait to go back and hang with Shey and her dog Gabbie! Thank you!

Love Shey She sends videos and pictures and the pups are always having fun
Shey was great but she spoiled the heck out of my boxer Bailey. She is so conscientious she moved her own vacation schedule around to help out her regular customers. she sent regular updates and I would recommend her to anyone.
Shey was amazing! You can see she is a dog lover from the moment you meet her. Very knowledgeable and capable of handling all types of personalities. Communication was awesome. I definitely recommend Shey!
Shey watches our Lab, Lou, when we leave for family vacations. I think the best compliment I can make is - when Lou stays with Shey we have absolutely no worries at all. It's like leaving your kids with a relative for a weekend getaway - you never think twice and just have fun. Lou probably has more fun on her DogVacay!

My furry face Cooper had a great time! Shey taught him how to navigate stairs instead of taking a nose dive off them. I got lots of pics and updates while i was away and I had such a great vacation knowing Cooper was safe, happy, and snuggled. I will definitely ask Shey to furry sit in the future.

Shey was wonderful to my dog Cooper during our vacation. I felt completely comfortable leaving him in her care. She sent several updates and pictures so that I knew how he was getting along. He always looked like he was doing well, getting adjusted to a new place and having a good time. I will definitely use her again. You can tell she enjoys taking care of dogs and is concerned about their well being. She is great!!!

Shay was wonderful with our 11 pound mini schnauzer, Gracie. Gracie felt right at home and it seemed they had known each other for a long time. Gracie had a surprise medical issue come up and Shay went the extra mile to take excellent care of her!
Shey was great with communicating from the first request. She sent lots of video and picture updates. She was great with Ace and I think he had fun with the group she had this weekend. We would definitely take Ace to Shey's again!
Shey is simply the best. We tried her out one weekend and she is now our normal sitter. She is very flexible with schedules. Our dog Zoe is a large dog and can be dominant but Shey gave her enough attention, helped to socialize her with the other dog, treated her like one of her own,spoiled her and Zoe came back so happy! The updates, pictures and video's put our mind at ease that our baby was well taken care of. I simply can't put into words how great of a job Shey does. Zoe loves her and we will be seeing her any time we travel!

Shey was amazing with my fur baby! Rocky stayed with her for a whole week, and I got several updates daily. I will definitely be using her again.
Great experience with using Shey to watch my old girl. I received daily updates and felt that my dog was in good hands. I would definitely recommend using Shey to take care of your dogs.
From the moment we meet, it was obvious that Shey and Gabbi would be great hosts! Shey is sweet, caring and it's obvious that she's experienced with dogs. I would take Gabbi home if I could. Their home and yard has lots of space which was a treat for my fur baby. Shey sent me pictures and videos, which I appreciated very much. Shey also went out of her way to accommodate my dog's schedule and personality, from trips to the park to letting him take over a bedroom to nap alone. I will definitely book again!
Read More...
We will use Shey in the future if she is available. We are very satisfied with her service. The text messages with pictures and videos were great!
I am new to this area and I don't know many people, so I was worried about finding a good dog sitter. This was my first time using dog vacay and using Shay, I must say Shay is an absolute delight. I felt confident leaving my baby with her from the moment I met her. You can tell she truly loves dogs and from the pics and videos she sent me my dog looked very happy with Shay. I will definitely use her in the future cause she is AWESOM!!!!

I am so glad we decided to choose Shey to watch our dog, Nehli. Shey did great with her daily meds and ensuring any direction we left was followed. We have never left Nehli with a stranger before so we were nervous but Shey sent me videos daily so I could see how she was doing. She also followed up via text or call with any questions or concerns she had to ensure she was doing what she could for Nehli, which we appreciated so much. Thank you Shey for taking such good care of our baby!!

We had a great experience with Shey! We left our two dogs with her while we were out of town for a few days. She sent us multiple videos and pictures each day, as well as updates on how they were doing. They seemed to have a great time playing with her! Would definitely recommend!

We are so lucky and happy to have found Shey and her dog Gabbi to watch our dog, Camere! Shey sent me daily updates with pictures and videos to show us how much fun Camere was having with his new friends. We were out of town for 7 days and we didn't want to board him at a kennel so finding Shey was a dream come true not only for us, but Camere too! He truly was in doggie heaven and having the time of his life with Shey and her loveable dog. We felt so comfortable with Shey right from the start and we knew instantly he was in excellent hands (and paws!). We highly recommend Shey and will definitely be using her in the future! :)

Shey was a wonderful host to our Rudy. She was so friendly and caring about Rudy and took the time to send us texts of him playing and having fun. I would use more than 5 stars to recommend her to others. She was fabulous!
We can't say enough about Shey! From the meet and greet to the end of our 4-month old puppy's weekend stay, Shey was friendly, responsive and truly treated our puppy like family! Highly recommended A +++!!
2nd stay with Shey...she continues to be great! We plan to use her regularly when out of town! She's been a fantastic friend of Frank's! :)
Shey was amazing! Our dogs had so much fun! She was able to handle our 4 month old hyperactive puppy, as well as our independent older dog. Her yard was twice the size of ours at home, and our dogs played their hearts out. She was very easy to communicate with and she sent us videos and pictures of our dogs all weekend. I know they were well cared for and got plenty of love and attention. Will definitely leave them with her again.

Shey was an excellent dog sitter! Highly recommended.
Shey was our first experience with DogVacay, and she was awesome! Prior to the boarding, she was very responsive to our inquiries, quickly scheduled a meet and greet, was very thorough in that interaction. When we dropped our pup off, we felt confident he was in good hands. The above and beyond part was that she sent us pictures of our pup all weekend long which was appreciated. We were very happy with her care, and we will happily use her again. Thanks shey!
Read More...
Wow! Shey is awesome! We have used in home boarding before but have never had the level of personalized care that Shey provides. Excellent communication kept us up to date with puppy's activities. Our 5 month old lab absolutely loved her stay. My family went on vacation and our puppy had her own 5 star vacation too. Very highly recommended!
