Shirley was amazing! She took great care of my dog, very thoughtful and helpful with our needs. It is easy to notice how she cares about animals and her passion with dogs

My wife and I left our two Miniature Schnauzers with Shirley for three nights over Labor Day weekend.

We have never left our dogs anywhere as they usually travel with us whether by plane or car. However, our accommodations did not allow for pets this time. We based our decision to select Shirley off of previous reviews on Rover. She was highly recommended with rave reviews.

She requires a meet & greet with her three ...

Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I so enjoyed looking after Onyx and Mocha.

Shirley was beyond amazing! She cared for Lucky and he obviously loved staying with her. Shirley worked with us through an unexpected extension of his stay with no problems. I can't recommend her enough.

Dogs are happy here!

I have been boarding dogs in my home since 2007 and have many very happy customers. I have three small dogs of my own and one cat. The dogs have access to my fenced back garden at all times. I am retired and spend my time training and competing in agility. My dogs have free access to the living areas of my home and are able to run in and out of the back yard ...

What Shirley would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if the dog is spayed or neutered and whether it has any aggressive tendencies. I do not take unneutered males.

When Shirley watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I walk my dogs around the neighborhood in the morning after breakfast and at night before bed. I usually walk the dogs separately - the boarding dog(s) and then my dogs. I also take them to the park for a run in the late afternoon when it is cooler several times a week.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Anywhere it wants.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am retired from business and am at home most of the day.

My clients' dogs are treated as if they were my own. They receive the same loving care and attention. I take them for walks around the neighborhood in the morning after breakfast and in the evening before bed. In addition, we go to a local park about 3 miles away for about one hour's walk 3 to 4 times a week. I am retired from business so I am at home the majority of the day.
