Shelagh was simply the best! She is an excellent communicator and was very helpful trying to sort through some complicated math on the booking. I’ll definitely use her again the next time I have to travel!!

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 =)
