About Cheryl

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello Friends & Clients - I want to
thank all of my wonderful Clients and their pups for a fun filled 2016.

As you can see by our photos, we had a lot of great pups stay with us in 2016 and we look forward to caring for your critters in 2017

Welcome to Half Moon Bay. We have a lovely coast side town with beautiful beaches to walk on, lots of great places to eat and hang out,
along with 5 star golf courses and of course, The Ritz hotel and home to Mavericks - Big Wave surfing contest, along with the great Pumpkin Festival in October.

Our guests have a lot of fun here at our Canyon Critter Camp. Besides a cozy bed in the house, my guest outside areas are real nice for
dogs to relax in their chaise beds, with shelter overhead and cushy beds too.

I offer personal, one on one care for each pup that I care for here at my Canyon Critter Camp.

All areas have lighting for those evening potty time.

A large fenced & gated front yard to play ball or run off leash if you
like with my girls - Miss Mimi & Sofie, and the occasional foster pup.

As an added bonus of security and safety we have the Hidden Fences by Dog Watch Bay Area around the perimeter of our property. Clients of Hidden Fences can also bring their collars for their pups and will work here too.

I am happy to care for dogs 20 lbs + and will consider special needs critters. Your pup should be dog friendly and socialized with others.

Your dogs diet - it is very important to keep your dog on the same feed that they are currently on. Please bring plenty of their regular food for their stay.

Feeding your dogs - I only feed your pup the food that you bring and follow your feeding instructions. I am happy to prepare your veggies or cook anything fresh food that you bring for your pup to have during their stay. I do not feed table scraps, only holistic biscuits as treats upon your approval, and I do not provide any food for my guests dogs.

All critters sleep in the house at night.

Holidays - yes, we are here for the holidays.
4th of July - need a quiet, safe place for your pup? we have that here. No fireworks here.

Yes, we are here for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and of course
New Years. . Very quiet at our Canyon Critter Camp.

We have a Splash pool for your pups to play in, lots of room to run and explore.

Rate based on a 24 hr cycle.

Property double fenced with 7' high fencing.

Doggie areas complete with shade tents, sun screens, and mats or beds
to lay on with lights for night time potty business and 7' high fencing.

Security gate
3 local vets in Half Moon bay.

Canyon Critter Camp has a lot of flowers,fresh air, and is a non smoking home.

** We have two resident cats here.

It would be very helpful that your pup have flea treatment & flea bath within a week prior to arrival and current on all shots and worming .

I have always boarded dogs over the years. I am excited about meeting your pup.

I look forward to your booking. Contact me for a Meet N Greet anytime, they aren't required, but a great idea.

This was the first time I used DogVacay and Cheryl which was a recommendation by a friend. Cheryl did a fantastic job and has an ideal set up for multiple dogs. My two dogs stayed for three weeks and I think they would have preferred to remain with Cherly rather than me taking them home.

Highly recommended.

This was Tilly's second stay with Cheryl, the first a single overnight to get to know Cheryl. Our second stay was over five days and Cheryl was very accommodating in the booking process for our family travel needs. After getting to know Tilly's personality in the first stay, Cheryl did an amazing job providing her with the right amount of attention and care for her breed.
Junie has stayed with Cheryl many times and is always excited to go back! Cheryl is wonderful with her pups and keeps us up to date with what is going on. She is also very knowledgable about animals and is a good resource. Junie is always well cared for and happy when we pick her up. We feel very fortunate to have found Cheryl!
