Shawn did a great job watching my special needs Labrador over Labour Day weekend. Penny is now 14 years old and recently started having seizures. We've been to several veterinary clinics in the past few months and we finally got her seizures under control. She's on several medications and Shawn's experience in the veterinary field is what sold me on him. He is very attentive and has a great positive attitude. He brought us his ...

Shawn did a wonderful job watching our 11 year old black lab. He was great handling her idiosyncrasies, and she was happy and relaxed when we got home. We loved getting the photos and updates about Mandy. And it was awesome that he came to meet us and our dog before we left and supplied us with references. We plan to use Shawn again and strongly recommend him.

What Shawn would like to know about your dog

I am open to any dog breed. I love learning new things about breeds I don't see as often. Before I sit for your dog, I'd like to know any previous medical history and any current medications. Having a fully vaccinated dog is always prefered. Puppies 6 months and younger should not be exposed to other animals just quite yet.
