    My Approach

    Please contact me if you have any specific requirements for your dog. Your dogs care and well-being is my key priority, followed closely by your peace of mind.

     

    At Devoted 2 Dogs I offer a free consultation service in your home so I can meet you and your dog, and so that he/she can meet me. It also allows us to discuss in detail what your dog’s exact requirements are, and what you are looking for.

     

    I provide a FREE initial face-to-face consultation for the following important reasons:

     

    • I need to understand your dog’s needs and behaviours in order to provide you with the best service
    • It is important for you, and your dog to get to know me as you will be entrusting me with a member of your family
    • Having previously struggled to find somebody to look after my dog, Lyla, I completely understand how difficult this decision is, and I want you to be totally confident that I am the right person for both you and your dog

     

    At the FREE initial face to face consultation we will be discussing, and I will be noting:

     

    • Your dog’s special needs and requirements
    • Details on habits, diet, known training commands, exercise regime, health and medical history
    • Veterinarian contact details and the vaccination records
    • All emergency contact details and my Terms and Conditions

     

    Important Notes:

    • Please note that I do not take bitches in season and require all dogs over 6 months to be neutered. However, if there is a reason why he/she cannot be neutered I will take this into consideration
    • In order for me to care for your dog please note that his/her vaccinations must be up to date
    • As well as vaccinations I only care for dogs who have valid up to date pet insurance, and he/she must also be micro chipped
    • All prices include full public liability insurance
    • Services on all Bank Holidays will incur double charges

    • When I first moved to Harrow, working full time with a long commute into London, I found it hard to give my whippet Harvey the exercise he needed. Finding Shazia was life changing for both of us, Harvey learned to run off lead and made lots of new canine friends, and I returned from work to a happy well exercised whippet every day! Now we've moved further afield Harvey still returns to Devoted2Dogs for his holidays whenever I'm travelling. He is always excited to be reunited with his old friends and makes himself at home right away! I know I never have to worry because Shazia looks after all the dogs in her care as if they're her own, and Harvey gets all the cuddles he needs! I only worry he won't want to come home again ;)

    • I am so happy to have found Shazia. She understands the whippet personality perfectly and is so welcoming and accommodating to my whippet Penny that I feel completely relaxed about leaving her in Shazia's care. Penny has great walks and a snuggly sleepover when necessary. Home from Home!

    • I am so pleased to have found Shazia to walk my whippet, Roscoe. She obviously understands sighthounds and has a lot of experience with them, so I trust her to keep him safe and give him great opportunities to let off steam on their walks. They have a great relationship and it's really comforting knowing that there is someone he loves walking him when I'm not able to. Roscoe has also boarded with Shazia in her home and is treated like one of the family. I would highly recommend Shazia if you are looking for someone to care for your dog.
