Shala is fabulous! She genuinely cared about our dog and was kind enough to give us daily updates (via text and photo). I'll definitely call her when we need help with our dog again. I feel so lucky to have found her!

There is nobody better than Shala Wyant to take care of your dog(s) - nobody. Her whole life is "dogs". She is an animal rights activist and volunteers for many pet programs such as the fence project, Iowa Voters For Companion Animals, Bailing out Benji etc. There are only a couple people I would trust to take care of my precious pups and she is my number one choice. Your dog will be safe, loved ...

Shala loves dogs. They are children to her. This cannot be stressed enough. They are her life and priority. She will not let anyone near them who doesn't have a proven track record of being nice to dogs. She won't let anyone near them hardly at all anyway. She cares for them tremendously. She pays attention to every little detail. Grooming, general health, specific health....she takes care of dogs. You will never find someone ...

I treat all dogs as if my own!!

I've always been around dogs. Most of my life I've cared for at least two dogs at a time. I'm a very responsible pet owner. My dogs are my life! They get exercise nearly everyday and affection at all times. I work primarily from home and so have a flexible schedule. When I'm in vacation I love when my dog sitter sends me pictures of my dogs. This would be something I'd do for you ...

What Shala would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences. I love ALL dogs. If I'm checking in on dogs I would want to know if there are any aggressive tendencies. For example I have two dogs and one is food aggressive and so I feed them in separate rooms.

I will not charge for dog walking. I realize it will charge you for the walk but I have a way to make it a negative balance so you won't get charged for the walk. I would walk your dog regardless of whether I got paid for it or not (if you want that is). If the client would like their dog walked I am more than happy to do so. Exercise is so important for dogs. If they like to play fetch or tug of war I'll play with them. I'll give lots of kisses!
