Shalana is simply the best! She is my number 1 choice when I need someone to watch my 200lb Mastiff. She is incredibly responsible, attentive, organized, fun and quickly became one of my dog's best friends. Frankly, he probably looks forward to when I go out of town now.

Shalana was fantastic! She gave me frequent updates on my 3 dogs and sent lots of pictures and videos. The dogs looked happy and nervous Mom felt confident that they were being loved and cared for!

Shalana spent quality time with Schmutzy and sent me four photos from each visit. Will definitely book again.

Former animal shelter staff

I will care for your dogs, cats, small mammals, birds, and reptiles! I am currently working M-F full-time, so I'm only available early mornings, evenings, and weekends.

Dogs have filled my heart for my entire life. I grew up with two small dogs and helped care for them from age seven.

A lifelong animal lover, I eventually took a job at the Longmont Humane Society where I cared for dogs (and cats, birds, and small ...

What Shalana would like to know about your dog

I cherish dogs of all sizes and breeds. Of course, I'd like to know any special needs or notable behavoir: leash reactivity, dog reactivity, vehicle reactivity, special diets, age, temperament, etc. Are you working on obedience or leash training? How do they fare around strangers and other dogs?

I am experienced with all of the above- I will happily take on any quirky pups!

We will do whatever the dog enjoys! For high energy dogs, I'd love to take them for jogs through the neighborhood or on one of Boulder's spectacular trails. An avid outdoor enthusiast, I am familiar with our trail system and the most dog friendly places to go.

For senior dogs, we can take it easy on a slower walk with plenty of sniff breaks for mental stimulation. If your pet enjoys learning, I am well versed in basic positive reinforcement obedience training.

You may also opt for an extended visit. If you want your dog to walk or hike in a specific location, I will drive them within a reasonable distance. For example, a one hour visit will include drive time plus hike time (i.e. 10 minute drive, 40 minute hike, 10 minute drive). I have insurance and a clean driving record.

Your pet will receive individualized care based on its needs!
