About Charles

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your dog or dogs take center stage here. 3 bedroom non-smoking home with no pets and two dog-loving kids. Large, fenced-in back yard. It's a short walk to Fleet Park, which is a nice dog run beside Lake Baldwin. If your dog is a runner we can run around the lake together. I was an owner of a beloved stray dog for 15 years. I work partly from home so your pup will have plenty of company. I charge extra for large breeds that shed plentifully.

Was nervous to change sitters but Charlie met with us beforehand and alleviated any concerns. Frankie had a wonderful time and came home tired from all of the fun! Charlie was awesome!
Charlie did a great job with Manning while we were on our Christmas vacation! Thanks for taking care of our fur-baby!
Fantastic once again! Especially on short notice.
Charlie and his sons were awesome hosts to our granddog, Molly. Receiving pictures of her while we were gone was an added treat.
Charles took amazing care of Bartley! We went on vacation and Charles made sure to send pictures of how Bartley was doing. He was very accommodating to Bartley's needs as well as with our schedule. We couldn't be happier with the experience, and we will definitely be bringing Bartley back in the future!
Charles was great. Bella had a fun time and was well taken care of. We will continue to have her stay with Charles in the future.
Charles is a great host for our dog Pepper. She is well cared for and I have always had a positive experience leaving Pepper in his care.
We were very satisfied with our host. He was kind, and kept us updated with regular photos of the pups. We tend to be worry warts when it comes to our dogs, but we felt very at ease with Charles.
This was Cocoa and Luna's 2nd stay with Charlie and his boys. I do believe it was a good experience for them as they came home happy and tired (which is a good thing and means they were busy). I chose Charlie initially as he does not have any dogs of his own and normally only takes two dogs at a time, so this was perfect for my Yorkies who do not like other dogs. You can tell Charlie enjoys taking care of his "guests". I highly recommend him.
Charlie was very accommodating with time we dropped off Buster to when we picked him up. Buster felt right at home with Charlie. When we picked him up, he was protecting Charlie's house, like he does ours. We got pictures throughout the stay. We will definitely use Charlie again.
Charles has done an excellent job watching my dog, Lenny. After staying there several times, Lenny seems comfortable and feels almost at home.
Charles took very good care of Lucy, and when I picked her up she seemed happy and comfortable. I recommend Charles!
Our pup Gabe had a great time! Charles was so friendly and accommodating to our last-minute request over Easter weekend. We are nervous parents and Charles kept us informed on how Gabe was doing during his stay. It really gave us peace of mind. Thanks, Charles!
Roger loved going to Charlie's house. He was happy and in good spirits when I dropped him off and was just as happy when I picked him up. He was well taken care of.
Charlie was a huge help! We were driving to Florida and were having a hard time finding a place where two Lab s could stay in the hotel. Our boys stayed with him. He's got a great fenced yard and we picked them up with huge smiles on their faces. They had a great time, and we got a break after driving for 8 hours. Thanks!
Nice guy
We traveled from out of state with our dogs and wanted them near us while we were on vacation. We are so happy we found Charles! Our 2 dogs were well taken care of. We enjoyed the pictures and text messages Charles sent. He was accommodating and attentive to our requests. I would recommend him without hesitation.
Charles was very helpful with my last minute request. My dog was happy at his house. Charles took care of him during a thunderstorm. I would use him again.
Sally and Cocoa had a great time at Charlie's house. They got to meet a new friend, Pepper. There is a nice big fenced yard I know they loved.
Charlie kept us updated with photos and email to let us know how the girls were doing. We will definitely have Charlie take care of Sally and Cocoa again. Thank you, Charlie!!
This was Skechers 2nd stay with Charlie and she had a great time. He's our go to sitter whenever we head out of town and can't take her.
Charlie was the right fit for Auggie as he would take only one other dog at a time so it wasn't a stressful situation for our dog. Auggie was happy and healthy when we picked him up.
Charlie did an outstanding job watching my 2 Cavalier King Charles puppies. He accommodated all of my requests and provided daily updates with pictures. This really helped me relax while away on vacation knowing that my dogs were in caring trusting hands. Ladybug and Falkor are looking forward to the next time they get to stay with Uncle Charlie. Highly recommended!
This was Sophie's 2'nd visit with Charlie and as we approached his door Sophie was clearly happy and excited. That's the greatest endorsement as we know he cares a lot about her and she really likes him! He's a great sitter!
There were some issues and vacay was not completed. Charles was rather easy to work with when setting up vacay though.
Charles was great! This was our first experience with Dog Vacay and it was a really good experience. Charles took the time to send us messages and pictures and give us feed back about our dog when we picked her up. Our pup felt at home with Charles and that made our vacation experience a lot more enjoyable.
Our dogs loved Charles. One of them usually takes a while to warm up to new males but she liked him right away which sealed the deal for us! Charles sent us pics during their stay and everyone looked happy and relaxed. Will definitely consider Charles for another vacay.
Charles was Sadie's best caretaker yet. He brought her into the family and made her feel welcome. She came home calm but happy to see us. Thanks so much.
Charlie was the man!!! Our dog is awesome but is scared to death of other dogs (he's a lab mix around 90lbs pretty pathetic). Charlie only allows up to two dogs stay at a time which was amazing for our needs.
Charlie was a great host and I would leave Maggie in his care again.
I was very pleased with the quality of care Skechers received while with Charles this past weekend. He was quick to respond to my meet and greet request. And he was flexible and understanding when I got a flat tire on my way to his house.

He had plenty of space and Skechers seemed like she had a great time. I would definitely recommend Charles and would leave Skechers w/him again in the future.
Charlie was great, calling me beforehand to answer all my questions and concerns and being very accommodating with drop off/pick up times. I received pictures everyday of Peri seemed very well attended to. I highly recommend Charlie, and will definitely contact him again for Peri's next vacay.
This being our first time leaving our puppy, Pepper, with a sitter we were a little concerned but Charlie made us feel secure. She immediately took a liking to him! We received a photo of her playing with another dog and knew she was having a blast. We think Pepper's made a friend for a long time with Charlie and we couldn't be any happier! Thank you Charlie!
Charlie was very accommodating to our needs. He kept in contact with us while we were away with messages and photos. Overall, we were very happy with the experience, and so was our dog!
My dog loved Charlie instantly and was very happy in his home. I loved that he was the only dog there as my dog tends to be frightened of other dogs. I received pictures and updates, and never worried about him while we were away. If I ever need to leave my dog again, I would be happy to leave him with Charlie.
Charles was wonderful with Smokestack, sending us photos of her time with him and his boys. When we encountered some unexpected travel delays, Charles was completely understanding and agreed to watch Smokestack for an extra day. It was a pleasure to work with Charles and it is wonderful having someone we can count on to watch our pup when we are out of town.
Charlie was a wonderful host. He helped us for almost 20 days with our American bulldog Angel and I cant say enough good things about him. We are glad that he and his family enjoyed the time with Angel to make her feel she was part of the family.
