Hello, Doggie! Is a unique dog daycare where owner Shannon Oliver stands by the belief that every dog is a star! We believe in positive reinforcement and the importance of appropriate play and an enriching environment for every dog! With Shannon's years of experience with animals, Hello, Doggie! is able to go above and beyond with these beliefs.
Hello, Doggie! is theater themed because of Shannon's long-rooted love for all things Broadway. She is a supporter of local arts and an active performer with Lake Region Community Theater (Naples, Maine), Portland Players Theater and Lyric Music Theater (South Portland, Maine).
On top of performing any opportunity she gets, Shannon has years of experience with horses, has worked in shelters and rescues, and several dog daycares. It was from these hands-on positions that Shannon learned dog training methods, and also what a doggie daycare should really be like! She has a vast amount of knowledge and experience when it comes to dog behaviors, body language, and socialization, and her priority above all else is to provide a safe, fun and nurturing place for your precious dogs!
"The staff and owners of Hello, Doggie! are the absolute best! My puppy has some mild behavioral issues and they have worked with her to break the habit, and have been so patient and understanding. They truly love all of these dogs, and have such a passion for what they do."
"I can't say enough good things about Hello, Doggie! I never thought I'd find somewhere that could cater to both my lazy, shy rat terrier and my SO HYPER SHE CAN LICK THE CEILING doberman. They are physically and mentally stimulated and most importantly, well loved. Thank you to Shannon and the whole team."
