Shira was an excellent host for Sasha! She came back a tired and happy puppy - and with a stylish new bandana! We will definitely be using her again!

Shira is incredibly kind and professional — with both dogs and their parents. She genuinely enjoys every moment she spends with dogs, so owners can be certain that their precious pets are in loving hands. She is comfortable with continuous communication and loves taking videos and photos of pets to reassure owners that everything is going well. A gem in the dog-walking community!

Dogs are my happiness!

No matter what I'm feeling, dogs are the one thing I can count on that bring me happiness no matter what I'm feeling, even from just seeing one across the street. I treat every dog as if they are my own, with love and care, and the upmost respect. I volunteer at the SF SPCA, have cat and dog sitting experience, and do light dog walking. I'm available weekends and all day on Mondays, after ...

What Shira would like to know about your dog

I ideally would like to know if the dog sleeps through the night - I know this can be hard to answer because they may not sleep as good in a strange environment, but on a typical night for you, if they sleep throughout the night. I think it would also be helpful to know of any restrictions (diet related, exercise related, avoid dogs/people/can't be in sand or dirt etc.). If a dog requires any sort of medication, that's very important too. Basically, I'd like to know everything about your dog before sitting or boarding for them so they can have an easy, restful stay.

Can provide daily exercise

This depends on the dog and what you prefer/are comfortable with. I love walking around Fort Funston, as it's dog friendly. It's a nice hike, with lots of other dogs for socialization. It's not far from where I live, however does require a short 5 minute drive (not walkable due to the road). If the dog cannot be off leash, while inside (my house or your house) I play 'fetch' inside along with tug-o-war, among other games.
