About Cheryl

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I would love to take care of your pet the next time you have to go out of town. I feel very fortunate that I get to do what I do every day. It is not a job but really a blast as everyday is different and I have not met a dog yet that is not a love bug.

I have a Goldendoodle Harley who is 10 and a Labradoodle Xowii who is 8 years old. We also have 2 cats and 1 guinea pig. My Doodles are well socialized and love company.

My husband Mike and my daughter Alexis also help me love and take care of our guest dogs so there is always someone at home with them for their safety and your peace of mind.

I have a secure walled in back yard for the dogs to play.

Great experience.
Cheryl is amazing and takes such good care of my puppy. My dog gets soooooo excited when I pull up to her house and is so happy to see her. Cheryl makes it really convenient for the drop off and pick up. Cheryl treats my puppy like her own!!! I highly recommend Cheryl!! :) :)

Cheryl was very pleasant to work with and seemed to genuinely care about our dogs.
Cheryl was very friendly and made us feel comfortable. I will use her again!
Great service. Thanks Cheryl!
Cheryl was excellent! She is so pleasant and caring With my two little dogs. I didnt worry at all when I left them with Cheryl. I knew they would be in good hands!
Good on communication. Very friendly and flexible. Dog appeared to have been well taken care of. Would definitely use again
Never saw or talked to Cheryl. Met her daughter at drop off time and was told I could pick up before 10 or after 4. I wish I knew this before I would have gone somewhere else. I texted 2 times to see how my dogs were doing. I was told there were 2 other labs by text from Cheryl. Then I asked to come and pick up at 3 she still wasn't there and her husband said my dogs played with 2 boxers. They said they were having a baby shower at their home until 4. When we got there at 3 only the husband was home. Nothing made sense the whole weekend. They didn't return my bedding blankets.

Cheryl was so accommodating and most importantly so loving to my little one. (Great plus, she's close to my home) we definitely will be back!!!
Cheryl was amazing and so accommodating for my baby (my dog has oral medications). She has many dogs at her house at a time and I can tell that the dogs love her. I would definitely recommend her!
This was my first time to use Cheryl. It was hard for me to leave.( Like sending your kids to school for their first day). She sent me text and pictures. This helped a lot to know they were safe. Thank you Cheryl
This was a godsend! Cheryls service was amazing and professional. The place was clean and dog friendly. I couldn't have been more pleased
Sadie had a fun filled weekend! She doesn't even glance back at us when we drop her off. I trust Cheryl and her skill to keep my very hyperactive and playful dog safe and entertained. Thanks again we will be back soon...tomorrow if Sadie had her way

Cheryl did a wonderful job, our lab/shepard mix "Goofy" was so happy and tired when he arrived home from the weekend. Sincerely appreciate the good care you gave him.
Cheryl was great! She sent us pics and gave us updates how our Biggie was doing.
My dogs had a great time. And Cheryl even took my pup to the vet to get stitches removed while we were gone, which was a great help.
My dogs stayed at Cheryl's for three nights and they absolutely loved it!! Will book again in the future for boarding services.
Cheryl is great - so flexable with drop offs and pick up times. Sasha has always had a great time there and likes going. she runs to the door when she gets dropped off.
Thank you Cheryl for taking care of my old guy. You were Awesome. Not everyone will take the big dogs and you do so that is much appreciated.
Cheryl took great care of our dog for the day. You can tell she loves animals and is a kind person. Thank you Cheryl!
My dog is very shy and not used to being around other dogs . Cheryl was very accommodating She stayed close to Cheryl, slept in a bedroom until she was more comfortable with the other dogs. I will definitely use Cheryl again.
Cheryl was great! We were very happy with Jake's stay with Cheryl. I loved that she was in contact with us through the app letting us know how our pup was doing. I would definitely recommended her for your pets stay and will be bringing our Jake back.

Cheryl is the best. We were very pleased with Kona's stay with Cheryl. Cheryl is very much into caring for our special family member and makes you feel very comfortable when visiting. Kona was very happy with her stay as we could tell when picking her up. Kona is scheduled to be in Cheryl's care next month also and we are excited to know that she will be well cared for. Cheryl is and will be recommended to all of our friends. Thanks Cheryl from Krystyna and I .

Our boy had a fun time with Cheryl. We're going to make it a weekly event. Thank you, Cheryl!!
Our dog, Jersey, certainly enjoyed her time at Cheryl's place. She and her daughters were very helpful in helping Jersey get settled and were very easy to communicate with. She even sent us pictures of Jersey on her vacay. We will definitely plan to use Cheryl again for any future trips. Thank you!!!

Cheryl Holmes treated my dog (Isaac) very well. She made sure that Isaac receive the medications needed and take him for walks.
My Maggie had a great time with Cheryl. She was so tired when I picked her up that she slept all afternoon
Cheryl was wonderful and our pups had a great time! She sent picture and text updates during our pups 4 days at her house. She was wonderful to work with and great with our dogs! We found out that both of our dogs at some point were actually sleeping in her bed with her. Our minds were definitely at ease while we were away. You can tell how much she loves the dogs she cares for! Soo grateful we found her!

Very good host very attentive whit the dogs
We have never left our dog alone, and leaving my baby who sleeps with us in bed every night and comes to work with me everyday was almost tear-jerking. To top it off, she got a big gash on her thigh from the pool a few days before her planned stay. We got her stitches, and Cheryl was more than accommodating to take care of that and giver her medicine. Of course I did not pack her cone, so she ate them the first night, and again, Cheryl let me know that she would take her to the vet if need be or just take care of it. She really treated her with the best care! She was very responsive, within 5 min, for my obsessive check-ins, and even posted photos of her! When coming to pick her up after 4 days I thought for sure she was go crazy to see us, but in fact, I think she was sad to leave!! You could tell she had so much fun and was worn out. Thank you again for taking care of our baby, we will definitely be back. Cheryl was amazing, I wouldn't use anyone else!

I am so thankful for Cheryl! Our labradoodle, Bernard, enjoyed his time at Cheryl's house and had lots of company. She gave us an update, which eased a bit of my worry (since this was his first time away from my husband and I). When we picked him up he fell asleep immediately and rested for a good 24 hours. We knew he must have had a lot of playing time with the other dogs. We will definitely be booking with Cheryl again!

Cheryl is very accomodating and immediately returns emails. She truely loves what she does and it's evident by the happiness my pups exhibit when she is around. I am a return customer and that's simply because Cheryl is awesome!
Another good time at Cheryl's. Roxxie loves to be around other dogs and staying at Cheryl's always is always a good time....Thank you Cheryl
Roxxie always has a great time when she stays at Cheryl's. We always feel like she is in good hands while we are away...We will keep coming back.
Cheryl was great and our dog Scooby had a great time and we liked the afternoon update.
Our dog Maxx had a great vacay at Cheryl's home. He was happy and clean when we picked him up. He was well-cared for for 15 days by Cheryl and her family. It was the perfect environment for our family dog Maxx. We are very happy we have found Cheryl to care for our dog when we he is not able to come with us on our family adventures. Thank you so much Cheryl!

Cheryl and her family were awesome with my dog. He seemed to enjoy himself and slept a whole day when we got home :) She sent pics and updates while I was away which made me feel at ease. Will definitely use Cheryl again!
Awesome host. Highly recommend. will definitely be booking again when needed. Dog very much enjoyed his stay.
Cheryl was absolutely amazing with my puppy Luna and my older terrier mix Chilly. I was very nervous at first but Cheryl assured me that they would well taken of. She sent me lots of photos and videos and I was amazed how happy and playful they were! I would strongly recommend Cheryl and I absolutely plan on using her services again for our next vacation. Thank you Cheryl!

Couldent be happier with Cheryl. Our Lily dog had a good time. Will use her again!!
our thor had a blast w/ cheryl and i know he got taken good care..
Cheryl was great with our dogs jazzy and Liberty, they really enjoyed their stay while we were on vacation. It is nice to have our dogs stay with someone at their home as opposed to Petco in a small cubicle for hours which we have had them stay previously. We have definately found a new pet sitter Thanks!

My dog actually came home and skipped in her yard! I cannot get over how well adjusted she was upon my return after a weeks absence.
Thanks for spoiling Snickers!!
We booked a stay for Roxie for just one day because she has a bit of separation anxiety and cannot be left alone. Cheryl was incredible and was super sweet. She was incredibly flexible with our drop off and pick up time! She was incredibly loving and warm to Roxie and treated her as if she was her own.

I definitely recommend Cheryl!

Cheryl is amazing! She has such warmth and instinct--such instant love for animals. My dog knows she will get tender, excellent care when she is there and adores her!
Our boxer dog Maximus has issues with his skin. Cheryl was able to provide personal attention to monitor his meds and his skin on an everyday basis. Thank you Cheryl for taking good care of Maximus! We appreciate the speedy response and multiple updates.

Excellent host. Roxxie is always happy when we arrive. She is clean and happy when we pick her up. Can't really ask for more than the fact that we are very comfortable leaving Roxxie in her care.
My dog Kent has stayed with Cheryl a few times now and I feel very comfortable leaving him with Cheryl. Kent is happy there and I can tell he is treated very well. Cheryl does an amazing job with communication and is very easy to work with. I would absolutely recommend leaving your pet with Cheryl.

Awesome. Had a nervous new puppy and by day three she was sleeping in Cheryl's bed! Unreal. Will be back on our next trip!
It was wonderful, as usual!!!! I love Cheryl and her family. Thank you.
Sadie was whining with excitement when i parked in front of Cheryls home. She recognized that she was going to be able to play with her friends and was all about it. Sadie gives Cheryl a big high 5. Sadie is super high energy and when she gets home she is super tired and happy. Thanks to Cheryl and family (including the furry ones) for taking such good care of Sadie

If you have any doubts, don't. I'm the pickiest furry pup mom out there and my baby loves going the Cheryl's. It's her home away from home. Cheryl gives the highest level of care and love you'll ever find!!
Our three boys, Ruger, Max and Cooper had an amazing time staying with Cheryl and family!! They came back completely happy and quite tired!!:) We were sent updates and pictures regularly and we missed them tons but seeing them worn out and happy was huge! We will definitely use Cheryl again!:) Thabk You for loving them while we were away!!

I can't thank Cheryl and her family enough for the great care they gave Sadie while we were out of the country for 11 days. Her updates made me feel at ease, and gave me some laughs at the changes in sleeping arrangements. Seems Sadie was willing to share her space with others. She responded quickly to my questions, sent pics and helped us and our pup to have a grrrreat vacay.

My dog is an only dog and is not around many dogs. Cheryl took that into consideration and showed him extra love.
I wouldn't trust anyone else with my pups. My dogs were rescues and are shy, but Cheryl has no problems getting them to warm up to her. I highly recommend her.
As always, Titan had a great time with Cheryl! He is quite the spoiled boy while there!
I had used a day care/kennel option once before finding Dog Vacay. It was ok but not what I really wanted. Finding Cheryl has been...wait for it...Pawsome!! She communicated honestly with me re how my pup was doing. Anyone can say "oh they are having a great time". I respect that she told me that the 1st day was a little hard (some excess barking) but by the next day Sadie had figured out that this is fun and had a great time the rest of her stay. She responded to my email questions and sent a pic of Sadie chilling on the couch. Sadie returned to us blissed out, relaxed and comfortable. She was super tired, but I always say a tired dog is a good dog! She had a great time and I am looking forward to our next booking.

Cheryl & Mike are very nice people. They have a lovely home with a back yard. Lucky played and romped with the other dogs and came home tuckered out (in a good way). I will definitely have her watch Lucky again in the future.
Tiny really enjoyed her stay at Cheryl's house and I'm glad to have someone local who can look after her.
We are new to the area and didn't know who to have watch our dogs. Thank heavens for Dog Vacay! It led us to find Cheryl! She was amazing! She had an instant rapport with our two dogs. She sent me an update on how they were doing...she even sent a picture! I think my dogs had a great weekend at her house! I'll definitely use her again!

Is there an option for more than 5 stars? Our dogs spent 3 weeks with Cheryl and her family. They came home happy, clean and my overweight dog even lost 2 inches from her waist! We will defiantly be back. She is incredibly kind and very flexible. She sent us regular updates and pictures
Read More...
I can't recommend using Cheryl enough! You can tell that she really loves dogs and treats all dogs like they were her own. Her home is open to the dogs and gives them free access to her landscaped backyard. I had her watch my two dogs who can be active and sometimes a handful and she did an amazing job. I will be using her again and hope my dogs will think of her home as their home away from home.

This was Santino's second time staying with Cheryl and her family. The first time I dropped him off, I felt terrible leaving him, but when I picked him up, he was very happy and tired. Cheryl gave me updates each day he was with her. This time dropping him off I knew he would be fine and I was leaving him in good hands. Cheryl and her family treat Santino like one of her own. I will continue to use Cheryl for every trip I take. Santino loves being there which sets my mind at ease.

The whole experience was very easy. I felt comfortable leaving my dogs behind for the first time after a meet and greet and am happy that I have a good person to turn to when the occasion arises. The dogs seemed to have had a good time too.
Cheryl is the greatest 2nd dog mom! I wouldn't leave my sweet furry baby with anyone else.
We have used Cheryl's services for months but are now moving out of state. Sadly, this was Boone's last stay with Cheryl and family. Boone and I are both thoroughly bummed. Boone absolutely loved his time with Cheryl, Mike, their kids, and their dogs. He felt like one of the family.

I recommend Cheryl very, very highly! You could not want for a nicer more compassionate more flexible host!!

Cheryl is absolutely wonderful. Isis just loves it there. I am so glad we found Cheryl. Thank you again
Cheryl was great with our pug and pointer. We felt very comfortable with them in her care while we were on vacation.
This is a review for our one day extension to our dogs' two week stay during our honeymoon. Cheryl was so accommodating to allow us to book another night when we got stranded for an extra day in Indonesia. Thank you Cheryl!!
We love Cheryl and her family! We have used her at least 5 times, from one weekend up to two weeks. Sienna and Troy cry with excitement when we get off the freeway to take them to her house because they know they're getting a vacation too! We couldn't ask for a more loving home to send them to. They always sleep for days on end after staying with Cheryl because they are so pampered. This is a review for a two week stay while we were on our honeymoon and we got regular pictures and updates. When our flight was cancelled and our return was delayed 24 hours, Cheryl was more than accommodating! Thank you Cheryl and we look forward to entrusting you with our feet children on our next vacation!

Cheryl was great, never left Lucy with anyone before so we were very nervous at first but with Cheryl's daily updates we came to realized that she was in good hands, will definitely use her sitter service again. Thank you Cheryl!
Isis just loves her time with Cheryl's crew. I never have a problem. Isis is always well taken care of. Today both Cheryl and I arrived at her house at the same time. Isis was very excited and gave Cheryl just as many doggies love kisses as she gave me. Thank you Cheryl for being such a Pawsome doggy host.

Wow! I am so happy I found Cheryl and her family to take care of Riley! I was very worried about who would take care of him as we planned a family vacation for 10 days.So glad I found DogVacay it was the perfect place and I know he enjoyed his time with her family. I also appreciated the messages and pictures to keep me informed. Thanks again Cheryl I know if I need someone in the future I'll know where to go.

Sheryl was very nice whit our dogs she keep me updated all the time really appreciate what she did I will recommend her !!!!!!!
Boone always has a fantastic time with Cheryl, Mike and family. He loves his time at dog vacay!
Cheryl was amazing! I was very worries about leaving my babies because they had never been left with anyone but family and with my destructive puppy I was worried about there being a problem. Cheryl assured me that they would be fine, and sure enough they got along great with the other pups and had a wonderful time! I will definitely being using her again, we already have plans for their next stay step up.

This was Cooper's first time at Cheryl's and he did just fine. She took very good care of him. Thanks Cheryl!
She was amazing! She always updated me on how my pups were doing! How they slept, how the day went , everything!
Fantastic, as always! Boone loves Cheryl and comes home happy and played out.
We have used Cheryl multiple times now for our dogs, Troy and Sienna. From the moment they realize they're going to be staying with her, they get REALLY excited. We can tell from their reactions and from how wiped out they are every time we pick them up that they are loved and treated so well!! Cheryl is so accommodating and caring. We couldn't provide a higher recommendation. A million thanks, as always!

With two 2 year old siblings, of which she is very shy, you are always skeptical at first. But after the two hour "meet and greet" the two wanted to stay! They love other dogs and they love getting attention. And that's exactly what Cheryl and her husband did! The perfect vacation for our two dogs. And yes, we already booked the next vacation....

"Pawsome" doesn't start to express how wonderful Cheryl and her dogs are. Boone loves it here!
I was hesitant at first but on the site visit Cheryl put us right at ease. She is extremely friendly and she loves what she does. Isis my German shepherd had a great time. I plan on this being Isis's home away from home.
Cheryl took great care of Tucker. I think he had as much fun on vacation as we did. She sent us photos of Tucker and her other dogs which was awesome.
Cheryl and her family were great. We will definitely use her again. Highly recommend !
Awesome! Couldn't ask for better!
Boone continues to love his visits to Cheryl's. I cannot say enough about the loving care he receives. :)
This was my first dog vacay and I was skeptical. Cheryl was great at reassuring me and my beloved little furry baby now has a home away from home. I think she had so much fun she wasn't ready to come home! Cheryl & her family treated Baylee like their own and she got all the love and attention she could ever want. I will use Cheryl every time I have to travel!!

Boone absolutely LOVES Cheryl, her dogs, and her husband! I always feel guilty picking him up because he is SO happy there. AND -- he comes home exhausted from play.
Cheryl and her lovely home provided awesome board services for my two big dogs.

She sent me pics to keep me update on how my dogs doing.

Even it have been raining during the weekend, Cheryl walked my dogs and managed my Old english sheepdog feet clean after play with others on wet lawn.

You can tell she honestly love dogs. I highly recommend her.

Cheryl did a great job with Charlie!
This was Lady's second stay with Cheryl and it wasGREAT!!!
We couldn't be happier with how great Cheryl was with our dogs. Her daily updates and photos of the dogs were wonderful, and my dogs had an amazing time with Cheryl, her family, and her two adorable dogs. We will definitely be booking with Cheryl again! Thank you for taking care of our energetic fur babies! :)

This was our first time leaving our dog with anyone. Our dog was well taken care of and that made it easy to enjoy our vacation. We loved the updates and photos of our dog enjoying himself. It is clear that Cheryl and her family love animals. I can't imagine a better environment for our dog while we are out of town. We would definitely book a reservation with Cheryl again.

Cheryl and family are wonderful! Titan was exhausted when he came home from all the playing he did. I would recommend her to anyone! Very accommodating and friendly. She made me feel comfortable leaving our boy in her hands! I will absolutely use her again!

Cheryl was the PERFECT match for Lady! After our initial meeting (the meet and greet) I was confident the match would be a success. Cheryl and her family treated Lady as if she were one of their own. They have two labradoodles that are really sweet. Lady is an older (13) female German Shepherd that had never been left with anyone but friends and family. I was extremely anxious that she be in the best and most loving environment possible. I was not disappointed! I was gone for one month (longer than I have ever been gone); Cheryl sent me reg-
ular updates and pics. I will definitely book with her again. Thank you Cheryl.

This was my first experience using DogVacay and I must say I was very very pleased. Cheryl is very friendly and seems to really love taking care of the doggies. I would surely use her again!
Cheryl did such a great job with our little Presley. So thankful to be able to leave him and know he is well taken care of. We will be happy to be using Cheryl from now on!
