Shannon was such a wonderful, caring companion for our dog while we were out of town. I couldn't have asked for a more communicative and responsible caretaker. Shannon sent updates and photos multiple times a day, and I felt totally at ease. I will definitely be reaching out to her again. Thank you Shannon!

Shannon was great with our one-year old puppy. She was very responsive and took the time to get to know us and our dog before staying with her. Shannon was very friendly and asked questions about our dogs temperament, allergies, medications, etc. She was very detailed and came prepared with a notebook and treats for our pup. She sent photo and text updates and our dog had a great time with her. I’d highly ...

I've know her all my life and she is the responsible sibling. Having been dog sitting for over a decade i know that her caring and thoughtful person will be a fantastic addition to your Rover team. I highly recommend giving her a shot as Shannon excels at everything she puts her mind to.

Your Dog Will Have A Blast!!

I love being a pet sitter because I’m just so passionate about dogs (and all other animals too)! Nothing makes me happier than spending time getting to know them and caring for them, so being a sitter really is a dream come true for me. Dedicating my time to keeping them safe, happy, and healthy is always a rewarding experience. Dogs bring so much joy and happiness to our lives, and I love contributing ...

What Shannon would like to know about your dog

Some things I like to learn ahead of time:

Would you like to schedule a meet-and-greet before the stay?
What’s your preferred method of communication?
Does your pup have any health issues that need to be tended to? For instance, dietary restrictions, medicine, or behavior triggers?
Do you have a vet nearby that you trust?
Is your dog spayed/neutered?
Does your pup like to stick to a given schedule, like regular walks in the morning and evening?
What does your pup do well around? What does your pup try to avoid?
What’s the best way to spoil your pup?

When Shannon watches your pet

I like getting as much information as possible from owners regarding their pet’s usual daily routine. I plan our days around their daily routine and always make time for the dog’s favorite activities/games. I’m always happy to provide basic obedience training – learning some new tricks, or reinforcing tricks the dog already knows – and basic grooming at the owner’s request. My goal would be to give your pooch the best day possible, every day we spend together! They can count on lots of TLC when they are with me.

If walking in my neighborhood, there’s an endless source of fun things to do to keep your dog entertained and exercised. Located in Bushwick, my home is within walking distance to several pretty parks. For pups who love playing with other dogs, there are three fantastic dog parks nearby: Maria Hernandez Park Dog Run, Cooper Park Dog Run, and Sherry Park Dog Run. I’m also a big fan of walking around the Williamsburg area, especially along the East River. Prospect Park, Central Park, and the Highline are very fun places to explore. Ultimately, NYC and its surrounding areas provide endless places to discover and enjoy! We’ll have a great time discovering all the new sights and smells together!
