About Scharmel

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a responsible grandmother, experienced pet sitter, and genuine animal lover. I will come to your home so that your pet's routine is followed with fresh water & food plus lots of playful loving attention and a walk if you prefer. While you are away, I will email or text you pix and video clips of your pet's staycation. If you work long hours or need to be out of town, you can rely on me to provide careful, detailed care for your pet so you can relax. I make my own dog's food at home, and I feel like our pets are our family members. I also work on mission projects (usually in town), but they rarely interfere with taking care of pets on weekends, early weekday mornings, and weekday evenings. Sometimes I travel, so book early if you can! However, I also am flexible when it comes to last-minute pet visits. I have cared for dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, fish, hamsters, chickens, pet rats, pet snakes, and a hedgehog. If I am booked or busy, I have two family members who help out.

Out dogs loved Scharmel! We appreciated her attention to detail on their routine and likes/dislikes and loved getting the pictures she sent!
This was my first time using Dog Vacay, and Scharmel was wonderful! My 15 year old dog is on multiple medications and also suffers from separation anxiety, so it always makes me nervous to leave him overnight. In the past I used an expensive dog sitting service, but they forgot about him and left him alone in the house for 4 days a few months ago, so I was extra worried about leaving him again, especially with a new person. Scharmel was fabulous! She was so sweet with him, made sure he had his food, medications, fresh water, and even walks and lots of play time. Even better, she kept me updated throughout her stay with him. I can't say enough good things about Scharmel, and definitely recommend her to all pet owners!

Scharmel was great. She stopped by the week before to do a meet and greet. The day of the booking she was on time and kept us updated with photos and texts. We will definitely use her again.
