Toast loves the big backyard, the playful doggy friend, and the human love she gets when she stays with Shanty & Steven!
Toast always comes home tired and happy, we're very grateful for Shanty & Steven!
Shanty & Steven were so great. This was our first time using and we would definitely do it again! Phoebe clearly had a lot of fun with them because we we got her home she went straight to her bed to sleep.
Always great, Chip has stayed here before and we feel very comfortable leaving him here . They are great !
Shanty watched my pup, Sansa, for a whole week and I couldn't have asked for a better sitter! Being the longest time I have ever left Sansa, I was slightly nervous but Shanty made me feel completely comfortable and sent me pictures throughout the week. I will definitely be booking with Shanty again and I would recommend her to anyone!
Shanty and Steven did a great job taking care of my 12 year old at a time when he happened to need some special attention. He was getting over an allergic reaction and was taking about 5 different meds but Shanty and Steven had no trouble keeping him on schedule, and by the time I picked him up, he was pretty much cured. Oscar came home happy and tired from plenty of play time in the big yard. We highly recommend these hosts, and we will definitely stay here again!
Complete ditto to my review from the weekend before this. We are big fans of Shanty and Steven.
Shanty and Steven are our immediate go to when we need the girls looked after when we are away. They've been amenable on drop off and pick up times and when I last dropped them off, Rita walked in like she was home. We always get a text and/or picture and the girls received a nice departure gift. Shanty and Steven are very welcoming and we know the girls are well tended to while we are away. Thank you!!!
Shanty and Steven are always so warm and welcoming to Toasty, she loves playing with their pup and always comes home happy and tired :) thanks you three!
My dogs Miranda and Coco seemed quite happy when we picked them up. This is our first time using DogVacay. Shanty was flexible about the drop off and pick up time. We were stucked in traffic back from San Diego and an hour late to pick up the girls but Shanty was okay. We got pics of the girls while we were away from home and felt relief that the dogs were in good hands. Thanks to Shanty and her boyfriend Steve for taking good care of our girls! We will definitely have Shanty host our dogs when will take our next vacation
Shanty was great! She watched Nash for about 5 days while I was out of town with family. She was very responsive and easy to work when it came to pick up and drop off times. While away, she sent me pics and texts to keep me updated, which is always a plus. I knew he was in good hands playing with her boy doggy too. I highly recommend her as a dog sitter for anyone.
Took good care of Sammy. Seems like Sammy enjoyed his stay too cause he was so hyper!
Although Amber has stayed with Shanty and Steven before, I can't say that I was very pleased with this stay, a whopping 18 days. After noticing Amber super hyper after last stay, I checked on how long she is walked...found out usually not at all, or just down the street ..."we have a big yard" dog is not one to run around a big yard, she needs someone walking with her to exercise her at all. Shanty informed me there would be an extra charge for walking Amber. We came to an agreement on 10 min walk daily without extra charge.
During this last long stay in which I was out of the country, I received ONE photo update from hosts. I messaged them numerous times and asked for more photos and info but never got other photos. =(
Also found the hosts quite inflexible as far as dropping off and picking up Amber. I had to take her in at 8 am even though I was not leaving until 5 pm that day. Re return, I could have gotten her at 930 pm and asked if that was ok. Shanty took over 24 hours to get back to me, first saying that was too late, then that I could come over at 10:30 pm (?!). Then a day later, that I could not come that nite, and needed to pick her up 1-130 pm the next day. One of the main advantages of using dogvacay over kennel is flexibility in drop off/pick up and clearly I had neither of those. Also, if you take a day to respond re pick up time, I would expect your In the end I had a friend pick Amber up earlier on my return day. The next day I noticed her brush and rope toy were not in the box of her stuff. Shanty informed me she was too busy to drop it off to me anytime soon, so 3 days later I went by and got her brush (rope toy was "destroyed"). To me, if you forgot to put her stuff in her box, YOU should make it right by returning it to the client.
Finally, it seems Shanty and Steven now have a new puppy which is not even on their profile.
Shanty was a good host. My puppy was very happy :)
Shanty was super friendly and very accommodating in terms of schedule. Sent lots of pics and updates. Thanks so much.
Shanty and Steven are great w my dog Amber and I love that they are home most if not all of the day since my dog loves people attention. They are very good with text updates and pictures and I will definitely board Amber there again!
Shanty and Steven take great care of Amber! I am very comfortable leaving her with them and they have been good about texting me updates and an occasional picture! Amber comes back happy and I am confident she is in good hands with them!
Shanty was flexible, affordable, and even gave our dog a special gift when his stay was over. Scooby-Doo always comes back to our home exhausted and content.
I had a great experience having my dog stay with Shanty and highly recommend them. They have a big backyard and lots of experience. My dog loved staying there and I was a lot happier knowing my dog was in good hands this trip. I won't hesitate to use them again.
My dog had a good time in Shanty's house. She is very nice and also sent us pictures of my dog. Thanks, Shanty! ;)
Shanty was great! Our dog seemed to love her house and the dogs that were there with him. She gave great correspondence with my wife via text updates and pictures. Highly recommended.
Shanty and Steven were great - they are a super nice couple who warmly welcomed our girls into their home. Our girls got along great with Shanty's pup. When the girls were dropped off, they were already settling in. Shanty sent us pictures throughout their stay and our dogs were smiling in almost everyone. When the girls were picked up, you could tell they were very comfortable with Shanty and Steven and being at their home. We definitely plan on using on any future needs! Thanks Shanty and Steven!!!
Toast was so happy and exhausted after this dogvacay, I would recommend Shanty and her partner to anyone, especially if your dog loves playing with other doggies. Kiloh was a great mate for Toast!
Toast always comes home tired and happy - thanks again!
Shanty and her fiance were AWESOME! I was nervous leaving my new puppy with someone I didn't know, but these two are so sweet and kind, my nerves were alleviated! Thank you so much! Piper had an amazing time with Kiloh and you've done a great job in training him! I can't wait to go on another vacation....because I know I have someone who will take care of my furry friend with love!
Shanty, Steven and Kilo are great! They were very flexible and easy to communicate with. And I loved the pictures and updates we got too! When I picked up Bugsy, it almost semed like he didn't want to leave.
This was our first experience with dog vacay and it couldn't have been easier! I sent her a message after reviewing the profile, did a meet and greet the next day, and a few days later we were off on our one week vacation! Our dog Scooby had so much fun with their dog Kiloh and we received pictures of Scooby almost every day. He came back to us healthy and happy and laid right down to sleep.
