As a dog owner, I understand what it's like to find the right sitter for your family member.  Rest assured, I'm more than happy to provide references if these pawsome reviews from previous and repeat Shellz Dezign Photography & Dogs clients aren't enough to ease your mind! 



We have left our Sassy with Shelly twice now. As much as we miss Sassy when we are away, I know, without a doubt, that she is being loved and getting all the exercise and hugs she needs and wants. I highly recommend Shelly to care for your dog while you vacation...unless of course, we need her during the same time frame. In that case, we call dibs. ❤️

Shelly was amazing with our older girl Precious. Her pup Yosemite played with her in her level. Her walks to the park and play time made for a happy girl. Shelly was great communicating with us and sent several photos making the time away from her less stressful. We knew she was in great hands. I highly recommend Shelly and will use her again in the future. I’m happy to talk with anyone who needs more info. Thank you SHELLY you’re the best!

Shelly was a god send. My labradoodle has just turned a year and hasn’t been left with anyone. I was nervous about leaving her, hoping she would behave and mind her manners, the few that she possesses.

My dogs had a great time with Shelly and Yosemite. We know them from the local dog park so I knew my boys would be in great care. Shelly was flexible with drop off and my late arrival. She took great care of my dogs and will certainly use her services again and again!!!

Charlie had a GREAT time with Shelly and Yosemite. I loved getting her videos and updates, with her giggling in the background because my dog is such a goof. She was a wonderful parent to our dog, and I had no worries or regrets leaving Charlie with her. She took him for many walks and really spoiled him! Thank you Shelley. I know who to call when we travel again.

Shelly is amazing! Libby loved her stay and was treated like a princess! We will use her again in the future for sure and I would highly recommend her. So thankful we found her to care for our girl.

Mighty Joe Young

Shelly was awesome and I will definitely plan on using her again to watch my dog Marty. She watched him for 2 weeks and constantly sent me updates with pictures (high quality pictures:)

Your dog(s) will get plenty of exercise with Shelly and you don't have to worry about anything! I've used multiple dog sitters before but she is the best and really cares about the dogs.

Shelly was awesome! Her love and passion for dogs definitely shows. Shelly was able to accommodate our needs and was super easy to work with. Mighty, my 125lbs Cane Corso, was dropped off at home by Shelly. He was happy and pooped! She also sent pictures throughout the day and had time to make a video clip of Mighty. It was awesome. I recommend Shelly and will be calling her again whenever we are in need of a sitter :)

I'm so glad Shelly was recommended to me! She was wonderful with mowgli. Sent me daily updates along with pictures and will for sure be using her in the future!

Shelly is the best! Our Sadie loved her and Yosemite. We met them at the dog park & when we found out she dog sat we knew we found the right person to watch Sadie. First time leaving her we knew she was being loved and cared for. We highly recommend Shelly.

Maggie & Mia 


Shelly did an outstanding job watching Maggie and Mia! She walked and played with Maggie and provided wonderful care! Will definitely use Shelly again!

~ Pam W. 

Shelly was just plain awesome. I know this because of how happy Dash was in all the photos and videos she sent. I knew Dash was taken care of and that let me enjoy my vacation. Dash can't wait to hang with Shelly again.

Shelly is so loving and caring towards my dog. She treated the dog like it was her personal animal. Shelly always kept in touch on Geyser, which made me not have to worry about Geyser. I will definitely use Shelly again and recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter. I was very appreciative that Shelly would take her lunch time to come home and walk my animal.

Shelly has been the only sitter I've used for my little guy. This was his third stay with Shelly and he came home happy. I know he's well taken care of from the moment I drop him off until I pick him up. The pics of his puppy smile help too!! And this recent trip I was delayed an extra day due to airline/weather issues and it was not a problem for Shelly. Definitely appreciated on my end! thanks again Shelly!

Enzo got spoiled again with his Nov. 2016 stay with Shelly & Maui. He LOVES the playtime and attention he gets here. Maui is such a great playmate and Shelly gives lots of loving and exercise. Enzo always comes home happy & tired - what every dog owner wants. And I love the pictures Shelly takes - so creative, fun and artistic. Thanks!

~ Mary-Jean Z.

Shelly is a great sitter! I used her for the first time recently when I had to go out of town for a week. She was super accommodating on short notice, which I really appreciated. I have several other hosts that I use on dog vacay, but Shelly is my new favorite! I like that she is very active with the dogs and she sends tons of cute photo/video updates. You won't have to worry about your fur baby when you're away, Shelly takes good care of them and is super easy and pleasant to work with.

Shelly was a great find!!! She cares so much for animals, and you can tell that right away. From the moment we met for a meet and greet, I could tell that Zoe would be in great hands. She always requires a meet and greet for the safety of all dogs involved, and I appreciate that greatly. She's very responsive when emailed or through text, and she frequently sent pictures throughout Zoe's stay. Her home is very clean and tidy, and the dogs roam as they please. I could tell that Zoe had a great time because she was so relaxed and chill when I picked her up at the end of her stay. I will definitely use Shelly again, and I definitely will recommend her to everyone!!! Thanks again, Shelly!!!

We could not be any happier with the love, care and attention Jackson received while staying with Shelly & Maui. From our meet and greet, the connection and calmness that Jackson felt towards Shelly was immediate. This was important because Jackson is a rescue who is a scaredy cat (shhh he's our big boy) and is anxious. Shelly made Jackson feel at home like he was her very own. He got a whole lot of lovin' which is exactly what we were looking for. We were excited to receive pics and short video clips of our baby boy while on our trip. We could tell he had a great time because he came home not acting up and was a happy boy. We will DEFINITELY use Shelly again. Jackson found a new bud in Maui also. We are already planning our next trip :) Thank you so much Shelly & Maui for taking such great care of Jackson!!!

Shelly was fantastic! She responded right away.
She took such great care my dog Buddy.
He came home so happy and tired,
I would definitely use Shelly again!

~ Michael B.

Shelly made our dog feel right at home. She was terrific about making sure Zander was happy and comfortable, and stayed in touch with us with updates throughout our time away. I would highly recommend Shelly! And her dog Maui is also wonderful and welcoming with other dogs.
