Shanika has been a fantastic house and pet sitter for our two dogs (one large breed; one small breed), and elderly indoor/outdoor cat. She's reliable, responsible, and really good with the animals. She's a good communicator and thoughtful care-taker of both our home, and our beloved pets. I highly recommend her!

Shanika has cared for our three animals ( a feisty cat, one Cavtzu, and a Lab mix) for the last several years, and we could not have asked for a better sitter. Always caring, and responsible, prompt to respond, and great communicating around arrival times, meds, pet needs, etc. We were sad to see her go. Would recommend her in a heartbeat!

I talk to dogs like they're human!

As a student I've chosen not to own my own pet out of respect for the amount of time and attention that should be devoted to them. Pet sitting is my way of getting in my animal fix! I've always felt a special connection to animals. As a kid we had a few dogs, mice, and birds. My first official dog sitting job was a rescued border collie who didn't like many people, but somehow ...

What Shanika would like to know about your dog

Any weird quirks that will help me not to cross your dogs boundaries. Are there certain places they don't like to be pet? Are there things that trigger and scare them and may cause them to bite? Are they not great with children or other dogs? Will they not eat if you don't make they're food just right? Help me to know as much about them as possible.

When Shanika watches your pet

I'm new to the area, so unless they require a strict walking routine, our walks will involve exploring new places. I love doggy cuddles, playing fetch, anything that helps me to engage with and get to know them!
