Hi Paw-Shakers! Thanks for viewing my profile.
I grew up with cats and dogs and know that a pet is a very important member of the family.
I live in East Vancouver but love to "borrow" a dog or two and go for long walks around my neighborhood, in Lynn Valley or through the trails at UBC as often as possible. I am also a part-time fitness instructor so going for a long walk or run is also a favorite activity of mine (win win!)!
I have pet-sit for friends and Pawshake pals at their homes. Keeping a pet in their own home helps keep them calm and comfortable while you are away. They feel secure in a familiar space and you can relax knowing they will be well taken care of. Keeping a pet at home gives peace of mind that they have all the comforts of home and can easily adjust to a new companion for a few days. Your pet's routine will remain the same and they will be happy to see you when you return!
Please feel free to message me with any questions or for more information about arranging a meeting or confirming a booking. Thank you for taking the time to check out my profile and I hope to hear from you soon!
Have a PAWsome day,
Shannen was absolutely great with my two dogs! This was my first time using the services of a petsitter as both my dogs are not easy to manage and can react quite aggressively to other dogs on walks. For this reason I was always hesitant in leaving them in the care of someone else. Shannen was however confident and very experienced and it was extremely reassuring to have her looking after them. I would strongly recommend her services to anyone who want to leave their puppies in safe and caring hands!
She was super friendly,my cat loved her right away. While I was away she also sent me pictures I knew my cat was in great hands. She was able to pick up and drop off Suva which made things alot easier for me. I highly recommend. As I will be using her again.
Your pet, your rules... I will follow the training and rules that your pet lives by. If you say no treats after dinner I will not sneak cookies to your dog no matter how hard they try! Special diets or medications are also not a problem for me.
I am happy to come and stay at your home so your pet will feel comfortable in their own space and maintain the same routine. I know it can be tricky to relocate a cat or dog into a new environment with a new person!
I always treat a "borrowed" pet just like I would my own. All animals need lots of love and attention and exercise. When I am pet-sitting dogs I always like to go for a nice walk in the morning and another long walk in the evening. Cats will get lots of play time and cuddles!
