Introduction: My name is Shayna, (also known by my clients as 'The Pet Whisperer') and I always knew in my heart that I should be working with animals. That is why I decided to start my own pet sitting business in the summer of 2013. What pushed me to start this business because of my dog Buster. He has a lot of anxiety and we have not gone on vacation without him because he gets so scared in kennels. We wished that we knew someone who was trustworthy and loved him like their own pet that could stay with him at our house while we were away or at a wedding so he wouldn't get so worked up being crated in a kennel. And I remember saying, "Wow I should be doing this." And Nanny Wags began. I knew that this was the career for me, and I plan on continuing with my business indefinitely. ​ I love working with all of my furry clients. To me, it's not work & I truly care for them. I don't do this for the money. I do it because I want your pets to feel comfortable and at ease while you're away in their own environment.

Dog Sitting

I can't speak highly enough enough of the service we have received from Nanny Wags. Shayna, our sitter goes way above what is required. The daily texts and pictures were just what we needed to not worry about our two needy puggles and be able to enjoy our vacation. We have also used Nanny wags for dog walking and the service has been outstanding. We are so happy that we found Shayna, she is amazing!

Shayna is phenomenal and was quick to respond and work out a schedule with me. She checks in at the start of every week to get her schedule and has been very accommodating if I needed to switch it up a bit or add/take away a walk on short notice. I love th

Shayna is the absolute best, ever. Both myself and my dogs (children) have been completely won over! One of my dogs is very skeptical and can be tough, but Shayna has put in the extra effort and is now one of the best part of my babies' day! So thankful to have found her. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Dog Walking

Nanny Wags Is the best!! After bad experiences with another Haverhill based pet sitter, I had started to give up hope that there would be a customer service oriented pet sitting company out there! Shayna restored my faith! She is nothing short of a blessing ! She is flexible, caring and dependable! My dogs just love her and I love getting a photo that she takes during her daily visits ! If you want the best of the best then go with this service hands down !!

Dog Sitting

Shayna is the best! Our Havanese Benji normally hates when we leave and acts anxious when we come home, but not when she watched him. He was cheerful and completely himself when we returned. I'd recommend Shayna to every dog owner :)
