Hello! My name is Shae and dogs love me! And I love dogs of course! I have always been an animal person. I've had pets my whole life; cats, dogs, guinea pigs, geckos, and lots and lots of hermit crabs. My love of animals led me to pursue a degree in animal sciences from Washington State University. I first discovered that dogs were going to rule my life when I walked into a doggy daycare for the first time and found it very very difficult to leave! I then sought out a job at a daycare and my fate was sealed.
I moved out of the daycare world and into dog walking a boarding because I wanted the freedom to give each and every dog exactly what it needs. Dogs are all individuals just like humans and do not always fit the “one size fits all” mold that is daycare. I'm here to offer every dog a unique personalized experience. Does your dog have a lot of energy? We will go on long hikes, play fetch in the park, run laps up and down a dog friendly beach. Would your dog love nothing more than to snuggle on the couch 24 hours a day? We will definitely snuggle but we will also get some walks in for a healthy couch potato. Your dogs favorites in its own home where it's the most comfortable.
My work experience in a doggy daycare has given me the unique set of skills and experience of all-encompassing dog care. The majority of my work was handling large groups of dogs; encouraging and regulating group play, waste clean up, and also comforting the dogs nervous to be away from family. The groups of dogs ranged from the tiniest of Yorkies to Mastiffs the size of lions, and I loved them all equally. I also have experience with highly energetic dogs in group play and one on one. I have walked dogs of all sizes, breeds, temperaments and ages in groups of up to four. Personally I like to walk dogs solo or just with their usual housemates. I am very experienced in following specific feeding instructions and medication instructions. I am comfortable giving dogs of all sizes pills. I have some grooming experience as well, such as bathing, dematting, nail trims and ear cleaning.
