Reiki Master/Certified Dog Trainer

Pet care experience

Holistic in-home boarding now available! It’s a Retreat & Rebalance opportunity for your dog while you’re away. Daily walks, Reiki, safe socialization, playtime, cuddles, meditation, flower essences, and more! In most cases, I require a Meet and Greet to ensure that your pup will do well in my home. We chat about your dog and then you leave for an hour or so (good opportunity to run errands!). After this, I become your dog’s safe home away from home when you need it! 😊❤️ If you are not local and looking for care while you visit the Hi-Desert, let me know, and we can see if it seems like a good fit. 😊 ** LOCATED JUST MINUTES FROM DOWNTOWN JOSHUA TREE AND THE NATIONAL PARK

Shawna took great care of our girl! She helped us out with a huge last minute request, and we're so grateful we found her. Thank you for making our last minute trip that much easier, Shawna!

Information Shawna R. would like to know about your pet

I am comfortable with all breeds. I previously shared my home with a Siberian husky and deaf dalmatians and have a soft spot for special needs pets. I currently have a senior basenji mix. Before booking a service, I will discuss your dog's personality and quirks with you to understand all of his/her likes and dislikes. I will ask about any stress triggers, especially things like thunderstorms or other noises, and of course any medical issues or allergies to be aware of.

A typical day

There is something so peaceful about walking with a canine friend! I consider it the cornerstone to building a trusting relationship with dogs. In addition to providing exercise, I strive to create a peaceful environment and experience for my clients' pets. It is already hard for them to be without their owners, so my goal is to reduce stress, leaving them more at ease than they were before I arrived. As a Reiki Master Practitioner and Certified Dog Trainer, I consider every interaction that I have with an animal to be sacred and valuable, both from a behavioral perspective and an energetic one!
