About Shannon

In home, 1-1 loving care for the same price, or less, than a kennel! NOTE: Please use the "General Inquiry" option to reach out if you are a new client. Thanks!

**14+ years house/pet sitting experience with multiple (enthusiastic!)references:)

**Friendly,down to earth, & conscientious, I've been told I put people (and animals)at ease.

**My animal friends know/love/remember me, and vice/versa (I have many repeat pet/housesitting jobs over the many years I've been doing this)

** 15+ years former teaching and social work background = many passed background checks throughout (DV background check pending)

** Work from home = lots of love & attention for your pup (I do need to go SOMETIMES, though ;) )

**Responsible, professional, service oriented - background running my own business, previously in social work, training/supervisor, and customer service

** I take up to 2 dogs at a time (or I'd take 3 if they were all from one family). If your pup needs to be the only one here, I am willing to do that - ask me about this!

I have a questionnaire/checklist I use to gather vital info and instructions when I petsit, and of course welcome your specific input and needs.

-----My booking process:------

1) PLEASE JUST ASK! DogVacay requires specific answers to many questions that I am flexible about, all depending on your pet's unique needs and the booking details. Please don't hesitate to ask about anything, even if the specifics on my profile don't match your needs exactly!

2) Please send the info below via a message on this site

2) I do require a Get Acquainted phone call with the human

3) Then we set up a Meet & Greet

4) Assuming it's a mutual match, book the dates! Easy peasy!

Sorry - Instant Book is not Available. I'd like to get acquainted first so we both know it's a good match. Phone call required, meet & greet if possible preferred, thanks for understanding!

Happily awaiting your email, and of course send me any questions you may have, too!

Thank you!

***Please send this info in your message:***

---a bit about your pet(s) personality, preferences, & needs (esp special needs)**, such as:

--walk/exercise needs? Leash trained?

--sleep patterns/habits,

--how long s/he is used to being alone

--typical and longest time between going out

--is s/he house trained? Prone to accidents? (if not it is not necessarily a deal breaker, we just need to discuss) I don't take puppies under 1 year except in certain situations - please ask.

Shannon is amazing. She had us fill out an info. sheet and responded to every detail from food info. to training. She kept us informed everyday often with photos. Our newly rescued Golden fell in love with Shannon and we couldn't have been happier.

Shannon was wonderful!! I was very comfortable leaving Micah with her. I am new to Florida and this was the first extended stay with a dog sitter. The previous stay was only one day. Shannon shared daily updates and photos with me which really gave me a piece of mind while being out of state. My dog is not always good with other dogs and she willingly accommodated this during his visit. My dog is also not a very good eater and I was very impressed to know that he ate his food every day with Shannon. That is a huge testament to him being comfortable with her. I already have another vacation scheduled with Shannon and would highly recommend her to anyone, although would rather her keep her as my secret pet sitter so she is always available for me and Micah!!!

This is my 1st time boarding with this website, and I can say the very 1st time I met Shannon, I knew that my dog Franco would be in good hands. She is a very caring and organized person who takes pet care seriously. She welcomed my dog Franco with open arms and went out of her way to make sure that he was comfortable for the entire stay. She sent great updates and pictures by text to let us know how everything was going. Shannon requires excellent and complete up front information about your dog so that there will be no surprises during any visit. When you bring your dog to her, it is like she has known them for years!! DO NOT HESITATE TO CALL HER!! She is fantastic!

Shannon took excellent care of my Stella. She's is very thorough and takes cares of your pets as close to how you do as possible. I'm so glad I have someone I can rely on when I have to go out of town.
I can't say enough great things about Shannon! She took the time to do a through meet and great with our dog (and me), including making sure she was informed on all his needs, habits, words he knows, preferences, etc.. She was also very pleasant to talk to, a nice bonus. During his stay, Shannon sent us quick updates and pictures, which were really appreciated! It was clear that she really enjoyed our dog (and he enjoyed staying there) and we booked with her again immediately! Definitely recommended!

As usual, Shannon was spectacular with my dogs. This was their third time with her. They love her, she loves them. What more could I ask for? Shannon is always my first call when I know I'm going out of town. This was a last minute trip and I was so relieved she was available. :)

I couldn't ask for a better pet sitter than Shannon! This was my second time to leave my precious babies with her and it couldn't have been a more positive experience. They remembered her from the first time they stayed with her and were so happy to see her again. They were cuddled up with her before I left. Shannon kept me up to date with lots of pictures and funny stories. Will definitely bring my babies back to Shannon next time I'm out of time!

Shannon was absolutely wonderful! I felt completely comfortable leaving my precious babies with her and felt even better when she sent regular updates on how they were doing. They absolutely hate being boarded and since I'm new in town I didn't have our normal family members to watch them. The pups loved Shannon and I will use her in the future when I go out of town if she's available!

Shannon did a great job!
Shannon is an absolute Godsend! My dog does not like many people or other dogs, and therefore I was very scared to board him. He absolutely loves his time with Shannon,he gets extremely excited when I tell him it's time to go to Shannons house! She also sends you updates and pictures to show you how much fun your pup is having while you're away. I know I was a little worried the first time I dropped him off, but she made me feel 100% assured that my dog was an excellent hands. I would highly recommend Shannon for anybody who is looking for a caring person to take care of their dog and spoil them while you're away.She was also available for me on very short notice and kept my dog an extra day when my flight was delayed to come back home. She goes above and beyond the role of a dog sitter I look at her as my dogs and Shannon now :-)

Shannon was an absolutely OUTSTANDING host for my dogs. She was everything you could hope for and more--flexible, sweet, understanding and best of all A DOG LOVER FOR SURE!!!!! ( :
Shannon was awesome!!! We were very anxious to leave our 13 year old "baby". We had only left Tasha with my parents before. Shannon took wonderful care of our little one. Shannon went above and beyond trying to get Tasha to eat. Shannon sent me daily updates and pictures. I would fell 100% comfortable leaving Tasha with Shannon again.

Shannon was very attentive with our aging dog. When she discovered a possible injury she reacted as a seasoned dog sitter and kept us informed and in the loop on care decisions and progress. Definitely recommend!
Shannon has always been very responsive and personal in her care of our small and aging dog. She makes adjustments in her home to make it a comfortable stay for our pet. She communicates with us to let us know how our pet is doing and "just for fun" pictures and updates. We feel he gets great care and attention.

Shannon was wonderful to Kito. She had so so so much patience with him and gave me news from him daily. I am sure he had a great time with her, even tho he also gave her many headaches!! Since he is smarter than some of us! lol lol lol I am glad I found someone like her to take care of my little furry friend and I recommend her to anyone. Will def go back to her too!

She accommodated last minute request and did meet and greet. My dog had a good time at her place. She walked her while we were leaving so our dog didn't feel being left behind. We would definitely use her again.
Luckily Shannon was available when we were called out of town and in need of someone to care for Guinness and Skeeter in our absence. Needless to say we are very satisfied return customers. As with our first experience with Shannon, our second time was just as wonderful. My husband and I didn't worry a second knowing our kids were safe and happy in Shannon's care. We would recommend her very highly, and without hesitation!

Shannon was amazing! Very easy going, friendly, and knows her away around a dog that likes to test out new friends;). She sent some fun update emails and worked with me when my travel plans went awry. Harlow LOVED her stay, and hopes we can utilize Shannon this year.

Shannon took care of our 4 dogs for a long weekend. Not a small task. Two mature retrievers and two 1 year olds. Lot's of energy to deal with. She's terrific.
The dogs were well cared for, the house was clean and orderly upon our return. We're glad to have found her, and plan on using her again.

Shannon was great. By the information she collected and questions she asked prior to Banjo's stay, I really felt she knew our dog very well. It made it very comfortable leaving our dog with her. And the regular updates via email made us very much at ease. I would recommend Shannon and would have Banjo vacation with her again.

We couldn't have asked for a better dog sitter for Guinness and Skeeter. We received daily written summaries as well as photos of our dogz relaxing and playing. She is a truly caring pet sitter that you can trust to take care of your pets. She also left the house spotless and in perfect order. We are still finding little hidden notes around the house... I guess we brought that on by leaving her illustrated instructions on everything from how to arm and disarm the alarm to how to put the dogz to bed at night. We loved her attention to detail and her devotion to our beloved petz. I strongly recommend Shannon to anyone in need of a pet sitter/house sitter.

Shannon was fantastic. Super positive energy and very accommodating to our little old man Chihuahua.
Great attention to detail. We felt really good about our dog Jake staying here. Shannon kept us posted on his activities and how he was doing. Definitely will use her again. Jake fell in love with her!
Shannon is wonderful! She is very detail oriented and safety conscious. And a genuine animal lover.I could see how quickly she and my dog bonded. I would highly recommend Shannon.
Shannon was great with my dog Angel! Angel took an instant liking to Shannon. I was very happy with Shannon's safety awareness and her genuine affection for dogs. We are looking forward to our next visit!
