Shana took great care of our senior dog, who requires several daily medications and frequent walks. She has significant professional animal care experience, and we would not hesitate to use her again. She left detailed notes, kept us updated during our trip, and even watered our plants. In addition, she was on time for our meet and greet and her Rover calendar was up to date. You'll be glad you found a reliable person in ...

Shana was excellent with Hugo, who can be a bit difficult to walk. He's a stubborn bulldog-boxer mix who likes to test boundaries, play with every dog that he meets, and tends to both pancake and pull on walks. She walked him better than we do and gave us some great dog training tips that we started to implement. He now walks better with us and is getting much better at waiting for the front ...

Highest recommendation! Shana is a dream sitter!!! Not only is Shana a dog lover and skilled owner, she also has extensive experience with animal behavior and can support you and your dogs' needs.

What Shana would like to know about your dog

I do not have any breed preferences (but I absolutely LOVE labradoodles), however I do like know the dog's history. How are they with other dogs? How are they around people, kids, men, etc? Do they walk on a leash? Are they crate trained? How are they if no one is home for a few hours? Do they have a history of separation anxiety or aggression? All dogs are unique and respond differently in different environments so I think it is important to be prepared for any situation.

When Shana watches your pet

**PLEASE NOTE: I have opened my travel radius to include the Bethesda/Potomac/Rockville area. I am only available in these areas on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays as well as some weekends.**
I typically like to find a safe place to take dogs on walks like a park or trail. I live close to the southwest D.C. waterfront but my pups really like to walk just about anywhere. I am a very active person so I like to get out for a walk a few times a day and often take dogs for runs if I am familiar with the area.
