Shelby was superb, amazing, understanding and kind. My pup was a little nervous and didn’t warm up at first. Even had a few accidents (hasn’t happened in years!!). She took it in stride and showered him with love and encouragement. He quickly got more comfortable and when my plane was ridiculously late Shelby was patient and understanding. I can’t recommend her enough

Shelby was able to win over Spanky in record time! She has been reliable and flexible with all requests in the multiple times that we have worked together. I would recommend her services to absolutely anyone.

When it comes to having someone take care of your best friend there is no one else I'd consider besides Shelby. Shelby is an unbelievably hard worker, responsible, and caring individual. She has taken care of my 3-year-old black lab, Ryder, many times. She has gone above and beyond each time and my dog truly loves her. I feel completely safe and comfortable having Shelby take care of my dog as I know he only ...

About Shelby

  • Verified Background Check

More excited about dogs than money

I grew up with a sweet, sometimes mischievous golden retriever and wrangled her into walking cooperatively with me - a determined second grade kid. I've spent a lot of time taking care of the houses of family friends and looking after their dogs, and have no problem working through issues that inherently come up being a stranger approaching your dog.

More recently, I had a morning routine of driving over to a friend's house and taking ...

What Shelby would like to know about your dog

Training! Is your dog good on the leash? Will he or she come back if called (if we agree on an off-leash walking time)?

Temperament. Does your dog get along with other dogs? Small dogs? Big dogs? Will he/she take a nip at a passing runner? A skateboarder? A child?

Energy level. Can your pooch handle a slow jog, longer run, or is he/she only able to handle a more leisurely walk?

Age. This one kind of goes along with energy level, but what can your dog handle and what can I look out for?

When Shelby watches your pet

I live in Crown Heights but would be happy to travel around to walk your dog, so don't let my address stop you from reaching out!

If your pup is the running type, I always enjoy a good running buddy and could probably tire them out pretty well for you. If they are good off-leash, I can pick them up during off-leash hours for some quality fetch time (I am an ultimate frisbee player and could throw all day).

Really though, it depends on the dog. I can work with you to figure out what your dog enjoys most and we can go from there.
