About Shannon

Hi! 

I'm still relatively new to Perth and pet sitting is a fantastic way to get to know different areas and suburbs.

Being a dog lover and very experienced with a range of dogs, you can be sure that I'll treat your pets with the greatest care.

Good pet parenting requires attention, patience, gentleness and being in tune with how your pet is feeling and what they need (wouldn't it be amazing if they could just call or text us to let us know what they want?). 

Pet sitting also requires the above, plus the ability to quickly develop a bond and establish trust - particularly with more anxious or reactive pets. 

Something extra I bring is training skills - I love teaching dogs new tricks and games to keep their minds and bodies active, and to further enhance the bond and communication. From standard skills like sit, stay, lie down, to more fun things like shake hands, high five, treasure hunts and more.

On a personal level, I'm a sensitive, caring, compassionate person who is creative, responsible and good in emergencies! I've mostly worked in roles (higher education, local and state government) where flexibility, safety and compliance are major features.

In 2024 I'm doing vanlife all around Perth, so I'm flexible about location and quite self sufficient. 

I'm offering pet sitting in your home. As someone with dust mite allergies I'm best suited to homes free of excess dust. And you can be sure I'll keep it super clean.

Shannon was fantastic! She was punctual, attentive, and clearly loved animals. My dog and cat were happy and well-cared for in her hands. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a reliable pet sitter.

Familiar with dog training techniques
I've previously had a dog with severe separation anxiety - this led me to working with a behaviourist in order to find training techniques and methods to help manage my dog's stress. Countless hours of dedicated training and a lot of patience were required to achieve success! While most dog training I've done has been out of necessity, I really enjoy training other dogs in basic and fun skills. I've even taught a previously silent dog to find their voice by being able to "speak" on command.
