Shakira did an awesome job dropping-in on the two girls while we were away. She kept us up-to-date with pictures and let us know when some special needs arose...went above and beyond to take care of them.

Highly recommended...we will definitely look forward to booking her again in the future.

Shakira and Bo had a wonderful time whilst I was off celebrating the marriage of my son with family and friends. I received pics and messages that took the worry away! We love her competence and heart ❤️!

Shakira is very personable and quick-witted. My normally reserved cat came right to her which was a great sign and definitely put me at ease that he was in the care of the right person. I look forward to working with her in the future and highly recommend her service.

Your Pup is My Pup

Hi there, I'm Shakira and I am a true, tried, and tested dog whisperer! The only person, other than me who will take better care of your baby is you!

When Shakira watches your pet

My days vary depending on how I schedule my clients, so there will be lots of variety in our days!

I would like to know your pup’s regular activities and what her physical capabilities are. It would also depend on the weather. Maybe your pup and I will go for a run around your neighborhood (with plenty of time to smell around along the way!) Depending on how your pup interacts with other dogs, we could visit the pup park.

During my free time I am mostly at the gym, lunch with friends, at the park, or catching up on tv shows, but I love hikes and beach walks when it's not too hot out. Sometimes I go to the park and just sit and read or meditate. There are plenty of pup parks and trails in the city that we could go to -- depending, of course, on your pup’s endurance and interaction with others!
