My husband and I were a bit nervous about choosing a dog walker to take care of our dogs during the day. But as we both work full time we wanted to find a dog walker that would give them lots of exercise but also make sure they got some much needed socialization. Shannon was the epitome of professional, thoughtful and knowledgeable from the moment we met – and boy do our dogs love her! I have never seen our Brussels Griffon jump as high as he does when he sees his beloved Auntie Shannon!! We have been using Westshore Pet Service for over a year and a half for both dog walking and boarding services and now have a second dog that Shannon takes care of. I honestly cannot say enough about how fantastic Shannon is – the dogs are happy (and exhausted!) after each walk and Shannon is incredibly accommodating. She does everything she can to make things work for us with our hectic schedules and is always keeping us up to date on our dogs. I would not hesitate to recommend Shannon to anyone looking for a fantastic dog walking or boarding services.~Lindsay and Alan S
Our dog Mila has been hiking and boarding with Shannon since she came home as a puppy. Mila has tons of energy and her daily hike is exactly what she needs to burn it off, and it makes us happy knowing she’s out having fun instead of cooped up all day inside while we are at work. It’s a great alternative to her being crated all day.My husband is in the military and often deployed, so it’s nice having a second hand to help when I have to work late or have other engagements that keep me away from home longer than I’d like. The pictures Shannon takes and posts to Facebook on a regular basis are also a lovely touch so that my husband can see Mila on her daily adventures. It’s nice to have that little touch of home.We love knowing that Mila is in great hands and that Shannon cares for her as if she was one of her own. We definitely find great value in the services that Shannon provides. We recommend her to anyone who has a dog!~Kelly H
Shannon has taken care of our dogs for several years as both a walker and for boarding. The change in our dogs behavior …due to Shannon is fabulous. She helped greatly with one of our dogs recovery from surgery. I actually credit her with the recovery as Daisy was still limping with us, but after a stay with Shannon, she no longer limped. Shannon is very intuitive with dogs. Her care is a huge asset to our family. Thank you Shannon!

I’ve been so happy with West shore Pet Service the past few months! Shannon has been nothing but extremely accommodating to any of my last minute scheduling issues and is always extremely organized for Winston’s days he goes walking. I have come to Shannon with a few different with scheduling issues that I was anticipating would be difficult to work around and it was a huge relief to hear her say “all of that’s no problem!” Winston is sooo excited when Shannon comes to the door and I love seeing her posts on Facebook on what the dogs are up to that day. He is always exhausted and happy when I come home from work that’s for sure! One time the river water levels were high and she even carried Winston across just in case he couldn’t make it… now that’s dedication! I would absolutely recommend West shore Pet Service to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable, reliable and passionate dog walker. ~Simone M

I was delighted to hear that Shannon has started her own Pet service business. Over the five years I have known Shannon as her veterinarian, I have always been impressed with her care and love of her own four-legged companions, and her general “pet sense”. She herself, is an extremely responsible pet owner and has a good sense of doggie health and welfare. In addition, Shannon has a wonderful rapport with dogs allowing an equal give and take of respect and trust between her and her K9 friends. I would say that she “has a way” with dogs and it seems to come from her heart. Dogs are “happy” around Shannon. In short, I would trust Shannon to care for my dogs (and that’s saying a lot!) and I wish her every success in her new venture.

Shannon- thank you so much for taking care of Cherry whenever we go away. We can’t say enough about the peace of mind we have knowing she is in such good hands (and also the unbelievable amount of fun and play she gets!). Whenever we pick Cherry up, she is better behaved than when we left her- not to mention all the napping she does after all the hikes and all day plays. We can tell she has a blast with you and the other dogs- it’s such a treat for her to stay with you guys. Also, we have to thank Ryan for all his awesome photos updating us on what Cherry gets up to… it always brings a smile to our faces. It’s a great feeling coming to pick her up in the evening and seeing her snuggled up with you and the dogs in front of the TV (or Cherry’s new favorite- your fireplace). It’s truly her home away from home. We can’t thank you enough!
