Shirley deserved 6 stars, but I could only give her 5. She helped us out in a pinch with our brand new puppy, and did a wonderful job. She was very thorough in her initial meet-n-greet and made us feel comfortable with her right from the start. During her visit, she kept us updated and gave our pup extra love and attention. We'll certainly be requesting Shirley's help again in the future. Thanks, Shirley!

I have many years of pet-sitting experience for friends and family. I enjoy being outside and taking ...

What Shirley would like to know about your dog

I Love them all! I am especially fond of Dachshunds! I will care for your dog as if he/she is my own! So I know how stressful it can be for you & your pet when you leave. Please let me know what your dog needs to be happy & comfortable. If your dog has health needs, behavior issues, feeding schedules, etc, please let me know. I want to make sure your dog is happy & healthy. I want to provide the best care possible for your pet. I am flexible.
