Shelagh was a wonderful sitter! My husband and I were travelling internationally and it was the first time we were going to be away from our 6 month old pup. As soon as Shelagh came to meet us, our dog was instantly comfortable - which we had never seen with another person!

Shelagh was an excellent sitter and super responsive on a last minute request! She took great care of Riley and our place; highly recommend her and will be asking for her services again.

Shelagh is great! We had something come up last minute, and were worried about our dog being cooped up. We reached out to Shelagh, and she responded right away, and was happy to help!

Our dog loves her, and it's a relief to have someone so responsible on hand to help when we need it. Will definitely use her again, and would recommend to everyone!

Thanks! I love that wild pupper

I love spending time with dogs of all kinds and sizes! Whatever breed of dog you have, I am sure we will be fast friends! I am especially adept at working with shy/skiddish dogs because of ...

What Shelagh would like to know about your dog

I grew up with labs and have a soft spot for them- I also love hound mixes because they are great runners. I also have a soft spot for greyhounds, as there is one in the building next to mine who I walk often. I also LOVE corgis! and dachshunds! and golden retrievers! All dogs are great dogs =)
