About Sheri

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
As a trusted sitter, animal lover and pet owner I have 30+ years of experience which allows me to provide your pup with knowledgeable, loving care. I have a cozy, clutter free home and a fully fenced yard to keep your pup happy and safe.(see photos/reviews) I provide 24/7 supervision. I only accept a few clients at a time so your pup receives lots of love (CONTINUES please read)
****************FOR the safety of your dog and mine (a friendly, submissive Shih tzu) PLEASE Dog-friendly dogs ONLY. *************************
If you have not had your dogs around other dogs we will set up a meet and greet.***********************************
**I do REQUIRE a meet and greet for any dog over 30 lbs.

***I am no longer excepting new guest dogs over 50lbs..unless they are low energy and submissive. Meet and greet required.***

Since dogs have unique personalities all visits are catered to their specific needs (I am really great with dogs that are a bit reserved or have separation anxiety).......I will also follow any special instructions you have.(diet, grooming, medication etc.)

During your dog's stay I will keep you updated via texts and/or photos of your fur baby's activities.

I have all the comforts of home available for your pup(dog beds, toys, bowls, etc.) but feel free to bring anything you want.(PLEASE bring your dog's food and treats to avoid any tummy aches). My goal is to keep your dog happy, healthy and safe while giving you a worry free trip.

$Overnight rate is for 24hrs....if you need a later pick up just let me know at time of booking so I can create a custom quote. I have very liberal drop off and pick up times)

Sheri is an amazing dogsitter; I wouldn't leave my boy with anyone else. She clearly loves the animals and spends lots of time with them. She also sends updates and photos and is just so responsible. Her house is immaculate, too; no odors or messes. Sheri is very much in demand, though; make sure you book early.

Sheri is more than a dog sitter she is a dog lover. She evaluates each dogs individual needs and provides not just their basic needs but, goes the extra mile. She provides 24-7 loving care. She fulfills all special needs and requests reponsablily.
Updates are provided daily to the parents of these precious animals. Her many recommendations attest to how she performs her duties, love and caring. I would not hesitate to call on Sheri to provide a safe caring environment.
If you have any further questions contact Sheri and she will answer in a timely matter.

It was our little guy's first time staying for such a long time anywhere without us. We missed him terribly but Sheri made our vacation so easy with her constant detailed updates and sweet and funny pictures. She even noticed and took great care of the irritated paw our dog was constantly leaking.
Many thanks again Sheri!!!
My dog recently spent the day with Sheri and had a great time. Sheri seems very caring and attentive to the dogs in her care. Her dog Gizmo is super sweet and just the right balance of interested but laid-back that makes him a good companion for any dog. We'll be making plans with Sheri again.
Sheri is the only person whom i trust to leave my little boy. Bentley spend several long and short vacations during this summer at Sheri's and we always know when we drop him off that he is in the best hands, and having the time of his life :) Every time its a great vacation for Bentley when he gets to visit Sheri. Even now after all the time Bentley spent at Sheri's she always sends pictures and updates what we love and appreciate! She gives endless love and care to all of the dogs she cares for.
THANK you again and again Sheri and lovely Gizmo!!!
Sheri was the best choice to give me total peace of mind in caring for my dog. She is tuned in to each dog's behaviors and needs and cares a great deal about them.
Our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Lohen, spent ten days with Sheri. Sheri provided a loving environment for Lohen and allowed him to sleep next to her on the couch. Sheri was also attentive to his personal needs, i.e. diet. Lohen's stay was during a heat wave, and Sheri ensured that he was comfortable with the air-conditioned living space, yet provided safe outdoor time as well. We received updates and fun photos via text daily. Sheri immediately responded to texts and was very reliable addressing our concerns. I highly recommend Sheri.
Great as always!
We would certainly use Sheri again to watch our dog Finn. She was very accommodating to our schedule and short notice for booking. I really appreciated that she sent me a picture during the day and he just looked so comfortable. Thank you Sheri we really appreciate it!
As always, Cameron LOVED his time with Sherri. She is so attentive and loving and patient with his quirky personality.
Ok I have a very special dog. She is my emotional support dog, quite frankly I think all dogs are emotional support dogs. She goes everywhere with me. I chickened out. I gave in and was sure I wasn't going to try DogVacay because I would be afraid to leave her with a stranger.

Then I got a note from Sheri; who knew there was someone who understood? She explained all the ways she would make Micah comfortable. She didn't do it for the money, she was sincere and helpful. I will be leaving Micah with Sheri for a few hours a day to see how Micah is and then I'll be using DogVacay. I am looking forward to leaving Micah with Sheri.
If she wasn't so caring I wouldn't have come back.
Great service. Joey had a good time. Recommend sitter.
Easy communication Pictures and updates sent to me during the stay to reassure me that my dog was happy. Left with a little bag of treats
My toy poodle tends to have separation anxiety and whines when I leave her. Sheri handled it with ease. Sheri kept me informed with texts and pictures. Both of our girls were in good spirits when we picked them up. Sheri's dog, Gizmo, just ignores the visiting pups, but was very loving to us when we visited for a few minutes. You could tell that the dogs there were content and very loving, which speaks well of how loving Sheri is to them.
Bentley loved to stay and play with Gizmo again!
Another great stay! Bentley was so happy as soon as we got close to Sheri's yard and sad when we left. He loves Gizmo's company. Many thanks Sheri!!!!
Howie had a great day hanging out with Sheri and Gizmo. Sheri is very caring and attentive, which makes me feel at ease leaving Howie in her care. She really does give 24/7 attention. The updates and photos are great. Gizmo is a great little guy to pal around with!!
As always, Cameron had a wonderful time at Sherri's house and missed his friends when he came home!
It feels awesome when we know that our little Bentley in a good hands whenever he is with Sheri and Gizmo!!! Sheri even packed for him little present (Gizmo's snack Bentley liked) :)
Rocco had a great day with Sheri and Gizmo. He was able to play a lot and was exhausted when we got home which is always a good thing!
Another great stay!
It was the first time leaving our miniature yorkie for 9 days and we couldn't be happier! Sheri was fantastic. She is very knowledgeable about dogs and we appreciated how she took each dog's personalities into consideration and worked with them. She sent us pictures every day, and treated Bentley like her own. I was happy that B had two other "playmates" with him. We missed our little boy very much while we were away, but were absolutely confident that he was in great hands!
Many thanks to Sheri and Bentley’s best friend Gizmo!
Another great day w/Sheri and Gizmo!!!
Coco spent the day with Sheri and Gizmo. Sheri kept in touch throughout the day with pictures and updates on coco's stay. It was very comforting to know he was content. Also, having Gizmo there is a big plus. He is the sweetest and friendliest little friend.
Being new to the area with no family was going to make it difficult to leave my Summer with someone I didn't know. I thought of Petco,Pet smart but did not want to put her in a cage.
When I found Dogvacay, I thought this was a cool thing.
Sheri blew me away with her attention, and correspondence. I definitely felt relaxed and comforted leaving my 4 legged child with a 'true dog lover.
Summer was happy, everything was perfect.
Sheri was great. My dog had a wonderful time at her house. She sent lots of pictures, which was very nice, and even sent her home with a new toy! I would definitely recommend Sheri in the future.
Bentley was happy to spend a few days with Sheri and Gizmo again! He always has a blast!
This was Frankie's 2nd stay with Sherri and her dog Gizmo! It was wonderful! Sheri is clearly a dog lover; Frankie was well cared for and I received updates and pictures regularly! We will definitely go back!!
Our little boy really missed Sheri and Gizmo. Got very excited as soon as we entered there yard and ran right into there house to play with his best friend!!! Thanks again Sheri!
I needed Sheri at the last minute and thankfully she was able to accommodate us!
Bentley loves playing at Sheri's house!
Another Great Stay!
We did a trial run to ensure that Bentley would be comfortable with Sheri and it was a perfect fit!
Sheri and Gizmo are the perfect hosts! Bentley absolutely loves it there. After our meet & greet, Bentley knew exactly which house to go to when we arrived on her street. It's obvious that he was well taken care of.
Another great stay for Bentley! He stayed for two nights and he was so happy playing with his best bud Gizmo and the guest dog. She was spoiling him as always and constantly updated me with pictures!
Our pups just had another great stay with Sheri! When we went to drop them off they knew exactly where they were and got so excited! She sent us several updates every day and even sent updates to our parents when we did not have cell service. Sheri always goes above and beyond loving on Mowgli and Wrigley. She noticed Wrigley was shivering when he went outside so she gave him a sweater to wear during his entire stay. She also sent home a couple of toys that they both fell in love with during their stay. I can't say enough good things about Sheri and would highly recommend her to everyone! :)
Sheri is a really great doggie sitter and person!!! Was running late from work and she made everything so convenient and comfortable for me and my little boy that I can't describe how much I appreciated it!!
My yorkie really enjoys his time with Sheri and Gizmo! So far he is there guest every week :) Thanks Sheri!!! You are the best!!!
Another great stay!!!
Sheri is outstanding!!! Every time my yorkie is with her and Gizmo he has such a great time that he doesn't want to leave. So we decided that he will definitely spend some time every week w/Sheri and Gizmo :)
Ese has had her THIRD boarding with Sheri!! She starts to wimper as soon as we are in front of her house. She can't wait to get to Sheri's door! It is so wonderful for my husband and I to relax while we are away, knowing that Ese is so well cared for! There is no more worrying about "who will watch the dog." Sheri is a god send and we HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER !!
Sheri took great care of Rufus. She sent us frequent pictures and updates throughout the visit, which we appreciated. Rufus would happily stay with her again.
Sheri was beyond amazing with both of our dogs! We are new to the area and were nervous wrecks about leaving our pups behind for the first time so we were very selective about who we chose. She was very flexible about setting up a meet and greet - which went extremely well - so we booked our long weekend trip the second we got home from our visit.

The day we dropped off our pups, Sheri had already gone to the store and picked up a screen to put up so Mowgli would not be able to escape under the fence (he's very tiny). This small gesture is just the beginning of how thoughtful she was with our pups. After dropping them off - she sent us a picture of them within the hour showing how well they were adjusting to her and Gizmo (her dog). I knew right then that we would be able to truly enjoy our trip and not be concerned about our pups the entire time. Sheri sent at least 3 pictures a day and gave us great updates. Not only did she give Mowgli a bath - but she wrapped him in a fleece coat so that he would not get cold!

I highly recommend Sheri - she was AMAZING! We have already booked with her again :)
Cameron, our shih-tzu, had an extended stay with Sheri. It was so nice to go away knowing he'd be in the best of hands. This is Cam's 3rd time with Sheri and he loves being there. Sheri gives him the same love and attention he gets at home !! Sheri also has a very cute shih-tzu and Cameron is totally missing him. Thanks for being such a good caregiver, Sheri!
Our little yorkie spent with Sheri and Gizmo 4 days this time.We are very pleased with our choice of Sheri. She is easy to work with. She knows well about dogs and treats every single of them like her own. Our yorkie always has a good time at Sheri's. We enjoyed the photos she sent and news of the playtime with other dogs in the house. After picking him up he was one exhausted dog but very happy. 5+ stars
Another great experience for Bentley! He was so excited to see Sheri and her dog Gizmo. Sheri was very flexible with us regarding the drop off and pick up times, making life for us a lot easier. It was another wonderful stay with her!
This trip was our second time with Sheri and Gizmo. It was another excellent experience with lots of updates and adorable photos that put us at ease while we were away. I feel our pomapoo is in great hands and is also having a lot of fun playing with Gizmo, who is a super sweet companion. Sheri is now our go to petsitter for Sayla!
Sheri is an amazing dog sitter. She took good care of Rusty and kept us updated with his stay. We will surely ask her to watch Rusty the next time we go on vacation. She kept Rusty safe and clean and most importantly, she's someone we can trust.
I cannot say enough about my recent experience with Sheri! I had never boarded Bella before and was nervous! Sheri put my husband and I at ease! We were updated periodically with both photos and text messages detailing Bella's stay. We will surely use Sheri in the future and recommend her to any nervous dog parents out there! Thanks Sheri and Gizmo!
Sheri R took excellent care of our dog, Zoey. We received daily updates throughout her stay. We would recommend using Sheri to watch your dog.
Cameron (3 year old Shih Tzu) loves his time with Sheri and his doggie pal Gizmo!! Most days I work from home so Cam is used to having company all day. Sheri is a perfect fit! He gets all the love and attention he gets at home. Sheri takes great care of Cameron!! She also sends regular messages/pics so we can see what fun he is having. When I come to pick him up, he seems so torn between staying there and coming home :). It is so nice to be able leave Cameron without worry. Sheri is a great caregiver!
Sheri was wonderful! She was an excellent host for our 10 year old Pomapoo. Her dog gizmo was a sweet, loving companion for Sayla. I would recommend her and will definitely be a repeat client.
My yorkie went back to Sheri and Gizmo and was so happy! Sheri provides such a warm and caring atmosphere. He spent a day this time but I still got several pictures and constant updates.I know he is in a good hands with Sheri! We will do it again and again!!!
My Yorkie stayed for the first time with Sheri and I can't describe how comfortable she made our time away. She was constantly updating us with pictures and details. She gave our puppy such love and care that he was missing Sheri and Gizmo as soon as we picked him up. Sheri even gave him a new toy and snack. We are very happy we found Sheri and our Yorkie will definitely spend more time with Sheri and Gizmo in the future!
I had another very positive experience with Sheri. She is so wonderful with my dog. Chase has some separation anxiety, and I have worried about leaving him with some sitters, but he really was in a hurry to get into Sheri's house. She has a way with dogs, that makes them feel very welcome. She will take care of any problems that come up, and follows my directions about feeding to a "T". Her little dog, Gizmo, is so adorable. Chase really likes to see him. Her fenced in yard is big, and I have no worries about him getting away. I am for sure going to use Sheri again. She is great.
Sheri did a great job. She responded really quickly when we were setting up the stay. She even pointed us towards a coupon, which we really appreciated. While she was watching Lucy, Sheri texted updates and photos about how Lucy was doing. Sheri followed our care directions, even serving Lucy her smashed banana and yogurt in the morning. When it was time to pick Lucy up, Sheri had all her things gathered. Sheri made everything easy.
Sherri and her resident doggie Gizmo were fantastic to Frankie! Great updates and pictures each day. He seemed happy and well cared for!
(ESE continued)
If I felt uncomfortable in ANY way, I would not
leave ESE.
4. Sheri's PRIMARY concern in the safety and well
being of YOUR dog.
5. She caters to YOUR dog's individual needs.
6. She will follow special instructions from you if
needed. For instance, ESE is terrified of thunder
and I told her what to do.
7. Sheri is level headed and will not take to
many dogs at once, therefore, she is always able
to give YOUR dog the attention it deserves.
8. She appears to sense the temperment of each
dog by interacting with him/her, by observing
YOUR dog, and most importantly, by listening to
YOU. Maybe Sheri is a "dog whisperer".....
9. Another one of Sheri's goals is for the dogs to
have fun and be social. There is a nice sized
fenced in yard for running and romping. And
Your dogs will get more exercise when Sheri
takes them for a walk in the PARK, which is
right across the street!!
10. VERY IMPORTANT: if your dog doesn't want to
leave with you at the end of their stay-- IT IS
BECAUSE Sheri NEVER leaves her house
when dogs are there. She stocks up in between
dog visits. ARE ANY OF US WITH OUR
PRECIOUS ANIMALS 24/7 ? I don't think so..
11. THE VERY BEST: texting you pics of your dog
with daily updates! (Maybe she is really the
"photo dog whisperer"}. The pics are great !
Sheri was very capable with Argus and he seems to have enjoyed his stay. She texted me about his status and wanted to assure me that he was OK. Thank you Sheri!
Sheri was our first Dog Vaycay experience. She was very quick to reply to our messages and has a great pet friendly home.

The resident Gizmo couldn't have been friendlier or more welcoming to our dog.

Our dog is somewhat shy around other dogs, Sheri was very accommodating to his needs and sent us lots of pictures/updates which really helped us feel comfortable during his first night away with sitter!
My dog has a great time staying with Sheri. She truly cares about your dog and making him/her AND you feel comfortable while you are away. She sends updates everyday and is very accommodating. I am happy I found her to take care of my dog!
I could not have asked for a better experience. I picked Sheri because her photos show a lot of happy dogs. Not only that she is with the dogs all the time. When I got there her shih tzu greeted us at the door as friendly as could be. Sheri was easy to talk to and listened to my instructions. During Susie's stay I received quite a few photos showing my dog in the fenced yard, playing ball, getting a treat and some glamour shots. When I came to pick Suzie up she did not want to leave. The dogs just love Sheri. I will definitely be bringing her back.
As soon as I walked up to Sheri's home I was greeted right away by her and her little dog Gizmo. They were both extremely helpful. She has a fantastic fenced in yard. Her home is nice and clean and smells good too. Tigger took to them right away. I felt relieved because my dog looked happy. I received periodical updates and photos showing my dogs activities. I picked up a very happy dog...and I am happy because I finally found an excellent dog sitter.
Sheri R must have a way with dogs, because my two guys loved staying with her at her home in Drexel Hill. I'm so thankful that they fit right in with her two dogs and I will definitely make Sheri my "sitter of choice" for future bookings. I appreciated that Sheri frequently texted my daughter and I with pictures and updates on their progress during the duration of their stay, and I also was thankful that our slight tardiness for pickup due to the weather was not a big deal! Thank you, Sheri!
We were very impressed with Sheri's enthusiasm about looking after dogs in her home. During the Meet 'n Greet, we could tell right away that our Roxi would be in good hands. She was treated like a princess and got on very well with Sheri's two dogs, making friends whose company she is already missing.
We received a number of photos and updates daily which allowed us to enjoy our vacation without any worries at all.
Thank you Sheri!
I called Sheri at the last minute. She got back to me right away. When I got there she was very nice and was very good at listening to my detailed instructions. She got along with Max right from the start. Her home was clean and her dogs were sweet. She was good at reassuring me my dog would be just fine. She would give me regular updates of Max's experiences. I could not have been happier with this experience. I will definitely use Sheri every time I go away.
