About Me

Shelley & Aiko-Ocean Shores


My main philosophy is to provide the best possible care for your pet in a professional yet caring way.  I love all animals and have had dogs, cats, and horses for most of my life.  




Dory, the wonder dog!
  • I am an avid, dog agility enthusiast.  My partner is my beloved dog, Dory, a Jack Russel/Cattle Dog mix.  She was a rescue from Homeward Pet.  We compete in dog agility trials all over the state of Washington, and just recently, AKC allowed mixed breeds to particpate in their events.  Dory has already completed her Novice, Open & Excellent AKC titles in both standard and jumpers.  She is an amazing dog - sweet, VERY friendly, and a little goofy at times!  I just love her to death.

I also had the opportunity to run our other dog, Ace, at the Cascade Dachshund Club agility trial at the Skykomish River Park in Monroe, September 2012.  We won both of these classes!  I had so much fun.  This little guy is a trooper!

  • I have been crazy about horses for most of my life and have been riding and playing with them since the age of fourteen.  As a Junior, I competed in the Hunter, Equitation, and Pony divisions.  As an adult, I competed in the AA Hunter & Equitation divisions and have developed a keen interest in dressage and natural horsemanship.

  • I love cats too.  At one time, we had seven (even though there had been a four-cat limit imposed on the household!).  I just can't help rescuing an injured cat from the road or the feral kittens from the woods when they have been abandoned by their mother.
