Our chocolate lab, Jax, has been with Shellie for over a year now and in that time Shellie has become part of our family. She loves Jax as much as we do and we love her. I find her to be extremely knowledgeable and educated on all things pet related and can answer all of my annoying questions and concerns. I was relaxed after the first time I met her and knew Jax was in safe and responsible hands. Her love for all animals is obvious and it makes me happy that she gets to work everyday surrounded by her passion. I never have to think twice when it comes to booking a holiday or even just a night away as I know Shellie and her team will be there to assist, however I need them to. I have no hesitation recommending Shellie and her team to anyone, in fact, I often shout it from the roof tops! She is amazing and I look forward to many others finding that out.

Shellie has looked after my dogs for many years now and they love it.  In fact, sometimes I think they don’t want to come home!

She has so much knowledge of animals that she is my “go to” if I need any information.  Knowing this puts me at so much ease as I know they are in such good hands

When we go on holidays, it takes away any stress as we know the animals are well cared for as the environment that is offered, is homely.

For those animals that want to stay in their own environment, the offering of having a house sitter is a great alternative.

I have been taking my two girls (large German Shepherd and small mix) to Shellie’s for over 7 years. The girls love her and I know they are safe, really well cared for and so happy.

My girls have stayed with Shellie while I travelled overseas for 6 weeks and for short weekend getaways. They also do weekly day-care and always come home with a smile and very tired! Shellie knows each girls quirks and habits, she sends me photos of the girls while I’m on holidays and will provide feedback when I pick up the girls, if she’s noticed something that I need to look into. It’s like dropping off the kids with Grandma – Shellie always goes above and beyond. I don’t worry about the girls when they are with Shellie as I know they are having a wonderful time playing games and playing with the other dogs.

Thank you Shellie! You have been a lifesaver! I couldn’t recommend Shellie’s Animal Care highly enough. Do yourself a favour book your holiday and book one of Shellie’s amazing house sitting team, for peace of mind.

I discovered Shellie’s Animal Care around 18 months ago after asking around Shellie’s name was the only reply everyone was saying.
I can honestly say I now know why. The care my 2 years old anxious Shepherd gets is unbelievable he settled in straight away. Shellie’s devotion to the dogs in her care is 100% above and beyond my expectations. My boy loves Shellie, and I can honestly say I would recommend Shellie and her team for all your doggy day care needs and housesitting needs.
All the dogs are part of the family the love and devotion Shellie gives is like no other to your animals and homes.
Best thing I’ve ever done for my boy.

You know you have the best carer for your furry friend when all you have to do is say her name – “Shellie’ – and your pooch goes insane with delight!  My li’l puggy Miss Frankie loves her Tuesdays at Shellie’s Doggy Day care.  She gets to party with the pack,  enjoy cuddles and treats and lots of attention from her wonderful team. She comes home well and truly exhausted and delighted.  Shellie is just amazing!  I’d recommend her and her professional team to anyone looking for a caring, safe and entertaining day care for their fur baby. Shellie’s professional and responsible housesitting team are just a fantastic option for when you need to go on holidays.

High recommended! What an amazing person Shellie is! Thank you so much for looking after Peanut when we go on holidays abs for going above and beyond. It’s a joy and relief to see Peanut so happy.

Honestly, not only is Shellie so amazing with the puppies, but our dog Lola also gets so excited every Wednesday morning. I can’t recommend Shellie and her amazing team highly enough.

I have been using Shellie for over 5 years now. My only regret is not find her sooner! My staffy loves Shellie.


Shellie always goes above and beyond. I dont worry about the girls when they are with Shellie, as I know they are having and amazing and wonderful time playing games and playing with the other dogs.


We recently used Shellie’s Animal Care for in home house sitting for our Brittany Spaniel Hugo, when we went on holidays for a week. we would highly recommend this service. Hugo was well looked after and got his fix of cuddles, kisses and daily walks. Our sitter Simone left the house spotless and kept us informed of his progress throughout the week.


This is the second time we have used Shellie’s House Sitting service and we have had Alexa both times. We will always use her service as we know Harley is well loved and looked after as well as our apartment. I feel no anxiety when I leave Harley now because I trust your service..
