Without a doubt my wife, Kristin, and I are "dog people". Ours is the kind of house where friends and family bring their dogs with them for parties, holidays and cookouts. Even before officially forming Shug's SunnyDay Pet Care we have always been the go-to dogsitters for everyone in our circle and in our neighborhood. Because of our more than 15 years of experience, we have vast  knowledge about dogs of all different temperament, health needs, size and age.  We officially provide the following: dog walking, dog/cat sitting, doggy sleepovers (space limited), day care and puppy/senior dog visits, but we are happy to help  you with a more specific pet care need - just ask! Currently, we’re able to provide service to Catonsville and Ellicott City, but if you are just outside of this area contact us and we’ll try to accommodate your needs. We are conveniently located about 8 miles from BWI airport, which makes dropping off and picking up your pup a breeze.

Our home is a bright, clean, cheerful, little cottage with a huge yard that is partially wooded and has a beautiful stream running through it. Your dog will be treated like one of the family, with all the benefits i.e. belly rubs, long walks, naps in the sunshine and healthy treats. Typically, dogs in our care are not crated, but if your dog is accustomed to that we will be happy to oblige - anything to make your pup feel happy and secure we will be happy to do.  Kristin and I work opposing schedules which means, your dog will spend little time alone.

We are dedicated to offering the highest quality of care for your dog or cat from active daily walks to family style sleepovers. We are unsurpassed in providing reliable, safe and fun care for our clients, which is why we’ve been fortunate to have a loyal group of happy clients that have been entrusting us with their pets for years.

We are here to help you and we strive to be "a one-stop shop" for all your pet’s needs. We literally will go the extra mile from dropping off/ picking up your pet from veterinarian and grooming appointments to weekend walks, pet sitting, day care, puppy visits and sleepovers. Our care and concern for the well-being of your dog or cat is second only to yours.


**Our schedule fills quickly in the summer and during the holidays so please book as early as possible!**
