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

Please note - Dog Vacay has done a wonderful job of Refining the search for the
right type of sitter for your pup. For those who have stayed at Canyon Critter Camp before, if you don't find me on the web page, it may be due to I have one day that I am full for the date range that you are looking for. Then my webpage will not show up at all. It is similar to when looking for a hotel room. If the hotel is booked on that one day or more in your date range, it won't show up either.

Being your previous sitter, you can send me a direct message from your home page even if you do not see my site, and I'll reply as soon as I
receive it so we can make your booking. For those of you have have my
phone number, you are always welcome to give me a call and inquiry about any calendar dates.

For my previous clients, you can send me a direct message on your dashboard as soon as you log in, and we can get it worked out.

For new clients especially with large or giant critters, please try another date range so you can find me. If my calendar shows booked for the date that you are interested in, please contact me directly and I will work with you to see if we can make your dates work for you.

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.

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.

Cheryl has done a great job taking care of our dog when we've traveled over the last few months. She is professional, keeps a tidy home, and communicates with us frequently. Our dog always comes back to us happy and is excited to see Cheryl the next time.
My sweetie, Charlie, stays with Cheryl several times per month. Cheryl and her pets are Charlie's second family, he loves staying there and Cheryl is a trusted advisor on his health and development. Charlie is always happy to visit and comes home tired and content.
First time using DogVacay and Cheryl was fantastic! She answered all of our questions and had tons of insight. She is very easy to work with regarding scheduling and everything else that may come up. Our pup was exhausted when he came home so we know he had a blast. Cheryl shared pictures everyday to let us know how things were going. Although I stilll don't think he has changed his view on taking pictures! It's comforting to know we can rely on Cheryl and her gang at Canyon Critter Camp for our next trip.
Cheryl did a fabulous job making my dog feel comfortable in her home. My dog sometimes has separation anxiety from me, and he seemed very happy there!
Another super stay! Our dog is so happy to see Cheryl! Such a great place! Cheryl makes going on vacation so relaxing because I know our dog is very well cared for and having just as much fun as us. Thank you!
If you have an elder big dog then Cheryl is your woman!!! Cheryl LOVES the big guys and gals. Cheryl is beyond welcoming and humble. It's such a relief to know our fur baby can be free to roam, safe, understood, loved and protected!!
We love leaving our dog with Cheryl! He needs to be introduced to new people and other dogs slowly and carefully. We are very confident with Cheryl's care. She also gives him the individualized attention that he needs, like having him hang out with her in the office.
Cheryl is fantastic and we'll be back again soon!
Another great stay at Canyon Critter Camp! We have total peace of mind when we travel because we know Dottie is happy and pampered. Thank you Cheryl!
I have an old Bernese Mountain dog who has bad arthritis and can be grouchy at times. I usually only go out of town if family can watch her but this trip that wasn't an option. I am very hesitant to leave her and worry about her due to her age. My experience with Cheryl was great. She sent me updates often which put my mind at ease. Her house was very dog friendly and there was other animals for my dog to spend time with. It could not have gone better and my dog seemed relaxed and happy. I would definitely recommend Cheryl!
Just picked up Lily from Cheryl the other day. Lily arrives home happy and exhausted. I think she gets to play with all the other pups and enjoys that immensely. This was Lily's 3rd stay and I feel that she is safe and looked after really well. She'll be back ...
Cheryl has been caring for our dogs when we travel for two years now, and we have a great deal of trust and confidence that she will care for them in the same way that we would. Leaving them with someone else is always difficult, but Cheryl makes it as easy as possible from the moment we drop them off until we pick them up. She is super responsive in the reservation process, is very attentive to any special instructions for care, and gives us frequent photos and updates which is very reassuring. We also like her setup which gives the dogs access to be outside as much as they'd like, she's around them most of the time, she gives them daily walks and play time, and when she has multiple dog guests, she's careful to let them mix only if she's sure they get along. We highly recommend Cheryl for dogsitting in the Half Moon Bay area.
My energetic dog, Charlie, stays with Cheryl for the day or overnight when I go into my office. He is always excited to go visit her and the other dogs. He comes home happy and tired. She always notices how he is doing and gives me suggestions and a full report. I highly recommend her.
This was our dog's second stay with Cheryl in as many months, and it's great to have someone who can take care of him and that we trust explicitly. So glad we found Cheryl.
My 3-year-old Jax is a repeat-pup client of Cheryl's and he absolutely loves spending his vacations there! He's a large 70lb German Shepherd/Boxer mix and there is so much space for him to run around. You can truly see how much of a dog lover Cheryl is by the amount of time she spends playing with your pup and caring for him while you're away. You'll have no regrets leaving your furry friend in Cheryl's hands.
Cheryl is a very experienced and professional caregiver for pets. She is warm and friendly and our golden retriever, Leo, felt at home immediately. We were updated daily with a picture and short note about Leo. When we picked him up it was clear that he had grown fond of Cheryl, but was also happy to see us -- a perfect state of mind after an 11 day dogvacay. Although Cheryl's location was a bit of a distance for us, it was worth it. Thank you Cheryl!!
We recently adopted a twelve year old senior pug rescue named Bruce and were very nervous about leaving him for a long weekend. This is the firs time we left him with someone not staying at our home.

Cheryl took wonderful care of Bruce. She wasn't at all phased by his special needs and we received pictures and videos every day. She even washed his blankets so he had clean bedding when he got home. I wouldn't hesitate to leave Bruce in Cheryl's care again. Thank you Cheryl for taking such wonderful care of our Bruce!
First time using dog vacay and I am super impressed with Cheryl! She's so nice, welcoming, and lovely. She is a true pet lover. She was great about posting pictures almost daily. My dog was happy and well fed when she came home after about 8 days. Really glad we found Cheryl. My dog is very active so she needs somewhere where she gets daily exercise, which Cheryl was able to provide.
It can sometimes be hard to find a sitter who will take our pit bull, but Cheryl doesn't hesitate. After a quick initial meeting, she agreed to watch our puppy without reservation.

As always, Cheryl took great care of our pitty, and sent regular updates and photos throughout the whole trip. Kind, caring, and responsive! Cheryl is now our go-to dogsitter on the Peninsula!
Our dog, Caleigh had a great time at Cheryl's house and didn't even want to come home. I really appreciate how responsive and attentive Cheryl was to our dog. We have already booked our next stay. I would highly recommend Cheryl, you can rest easy with your pet in her capable hands.
Cheryl's place is set up well for dogs. She has a couple of fences/gates so they can run around in the outdoor area without any risk of escaping. She sent us a photo of our dog every day, which we really appreciated. Thanks Cheryl for taking care of our little guy while we were away!
Cheryl was great. This was our first time using dogvacay and she was patient and helpful getting us set up. Our dog is never happy to be left behind but when we picked her up after her vacay
she was chipper and didn't show the signs of stress she sometimes does when being picked up from a kennel. We felt she was in great hands with Cheryl.
Cheryl - was a great host. We had frequent communication and the care for Baci was very loving.
Cheryl was fantastic. She checked in regularly with pictures and notes, ensured my dog got along with her resident dogs and guests, and was comfortable giving my dog his medication. I will definitely be back!
Cheryl is great! She was very accommodating of our dog's special needs, and her facilities are spacious and comfortable for the dogs in her care. She was also very communicative, both before and during our dog's stay with her. Highly recommended!
We went to Europe for a 12 day vacation and Cheryl took care of our 2 rescue dogs. They are used to 24 hr supervision and lots of play time. It's their home away from home. Cheryl is easy to reach and always keeps us up to date with photos and videos.

Thank you
Our Dottie loves her stays at Camp Critter! Cheryl is the BEST! Dottie has so much fun! Such a beautiful place for a doggie vacation. Thank you Cheryl!
Cheryl was delightful. She was very welcoming and attentive to my dogs. The daily doggie update pictures she sent me were adorable. Thanks Cheryl.
Our Dottie enjoyed a wonderful week with Cheryl! We received daily updates and had total peace of mind on our trip. Dottie loved her Canyon Critter Camp experience! Thank you Cheryl!
Cheryl was great. Our dog came hope happy and healthy. Cheryl was easy to reach and we had great communication.
Dottie had a daycation and loved it! The property is just beautiful. We booked for a week. Thank you Cheryl!
Charlie had a great time.
Kirschi stayed with Cheryl for a week while I was traveling. Cheryl was very accommodating and was able to do a meet-and-greet at the last minute at a convenient time. It was great to meet Cheryl and see the space before the day I dropped Kirschi off.

Cheryl sent me photo updates most days I was gone which was really lovely. Kirschi looked happy, and that was the important thing.

Kirschi was tired and happy when I picked her up, so I know she had a good time and was well cared for. We'll be back :)
Had to go out of town unexpectedly and Cheryl saved the day by taking Julia in with very short notice, an hour! Cheryl has a chill house and went out of her way to feed Julia her special diet of raw meat, much appreciated!
Picked up Lily from Cheryl last week, and was so pleased to find a happy, tail wagging doggie. It was a long stay (3 weeks) so Lily did meet up with quite a few other vacationers. I think she did very well, judging by Cheryl's reports and photos of Lily with other pups. Will definitely feel happy leaving Lily with Cheryl again. And I definitely recommend Cheryl's Canyon Critter Camp
Che enjoyed himself at Cheryl's place and he had a blast hanging out with her and the other doggy guests on New Years Eve. I made a very last minute reservation and Cheryl fortunately had a space left and was very accommodating. Thanks Cheryl!
Cheryl is great!!! I've had my two dogs (a Giant Schnauzer and a Standard Schnauzer in some of the pictures!) stay with her multiple times. The location is very convenient and I know the dogs love having all the room to run around. They are always really excited once we pull up to her house and sleep for days after they get home. I would highly recommend Cheryl and Canyon Critter Camp to everyone!
Everything went smoothly starting with the initial interview, the drop off and pick up. Cheryl was very kind and has lots of experience with dogs. Her facility is spacious with lots of nice areas for dogs to play, run and investigate. Cheryl sent us several pictures of our dog while we were away as well as updates on how she was doing.
Cheryl was great and took good care of our little Daisy. Will definitely book with her again!
We absolutely LOVE Cheryl!! Jax (German Shepherd/Boxer mix) always gets so excited when we pull up to Cheryl's house and I can tell he's exhausted from play and had a blast each time he comes home. Cheryl is great to do business with, she's been flexible and accommodating when I've had to make last minute changes, and it is clear how much she truly cares about each pup she cares for.
Cheryl was great. Very attentive to details, directions and very friendly. T-Bone was well cared for
We had a great experience leaving our girls with Cheryl. She took the time during the meet and greet to make everyone feel comfortable and was very flexible and accommodated last minute schedule changes. She clearly knows what she's doing and loves doing it.
Once again I arrived to find my girls spinning with joy. I always feel confident that my pups are well cared for loved. Cheryl is just the most wonderful caregiver and her photos keep me informed while I am away.
We are so happy with the excellant service that Cheryl provides. Her love of dogs, her years of experience and knowledge are quite obvious.
Whenever we leave Drama in her care we have complete confidence that she will be well taken care of and have a very good time. Cheryl spends a lot of time playing with her and gives her lots of attention. We come home to a very happy dog. We highly recommend "Critter Camp"!!!
When we leave our dog with Cheryl we have complete confidence that she will be well taken care of and shown lots of attention. Her years of experience, her knowledge and love of dogs is quite obvious. We highly recommend "Critter Camp"!
Cheryl is fantastic! She is super safety aware and truly loves dogs! I give her the highest rating.
Our anxious rescue was very happy at Cheryl's. He looked great when we picked him up. He typically doesn't socialize we'll and Cheryl had him walking with another fog. When our dog chose not to eat his food due to separation anxiety, Cheryl overcame his nervousness with offering him special food from the vet. He slept in his own bed and blankets which I'm sure helped him too. We are getting ready to book again.
This was our first Dog Vacay stay and we were very happy with it. Upon meeting Cheryl, it was clear that she was completely in love with animals. Lady was treated like family there, getting her own little section of the house. Cheryl was very accomodating of our feeding practices and sent pictures showing us what a good time Lady was having.
Pasilla definitely enjoyed her time with Cheryl and I am so glad she was able to spend time in her home while we were away.
Cheryl helped me feel comfortable leaving our dog with her. He was a recent rescue and I was concerned about him feeling anxious about leaving his new permanent home. Her demeanor put all of us at ease and I can tell that he really enjoyed his stay. I also loved getting daily photos of him and the other dogs. We will definitely leave our dog with Cheryl again should the need arise.
Leaving my two pups with Cheryl was the easiest parting I've ever had with them. From the minute they met Cheryl they acted as if they'd known her forever. She has an incredible connection with dogs I've never seen anything like it. My little cavapoo jumped up on the sofa and fell asleep next to her the first time they met.
I am already planning my next trip now that I know they have another home to go to. This place and this hostess are the absolute BEST!!!!
I got a couple videos of the dogs playing. They looked like they were having a great time. They were happy and healthy!
We feel 100% comfortable leaving our dogs with Cheryl. They're in a safe, dog-friendly environment, and they always seem happy when we pick them up. She texts photos and keeps us updated on anything she observes regarding their health. We highly recommend Cheryl!
Cheryl was a spectacular dogvacay host: very responsible and caring for our Cammie. She runs an excellent operation and really knows what she is doing. Cammie was safe, well cared for, and came home tired! Thanks for being such an excellent host! Woof!
Cheryl was very caring and considerate of our old Australian Shepherd. He seemed to enjoy his time with her and we'll be definitely going back again. Thank you Cheryl
I'm so lucky to have found Cheryl!! She did an amazing job with my grumpy 8 yr. old mutt. It was comforting to receive daily updates and pics while I was away for a week. I picked up a tired and happy pup. :) I will definitely use her services in the future and highly recommend anyone needing a caring and loving boarder.
I had a totally pawesome experience with Cheryl! She's a fantastic host with a perfect property for a dog that needs a lot of exercise and space. My 'boy had a really great time playing with the other dogs during his stay. Cheryl sent pictures daily which made me feel very comfortable while on a week long business trip. I will surely recommend Cheryl to my friends who use dogvacay and I'll be sending Cowboy, my 3 yr old Border Collie, here for future vacays!
Cheryl took great care of Blue. She sent me pictures of his adventures during his stay and said he was a lovely guest. We'll certainly be back!
Cheryl was great! She made us feel comfortable leaving our basset hound and lab behind. She gave us a full tour when we dropped them off and fully answered all our questions. She was very responsive to all emails prior to our visit. Our pups had plenty of space to run around, play fetch, and interact with other dogs. On top of it all we received daily photos ! will definitely booked with Cheryl again
Great stay for our pup Sadie. Cheryl is super professional, responsive and genuinely loves her borders. Definitely recommend Cheryl.
Our dog Junie is a regular with Cheryl now and we are so blessed to be able to take her there! Cheryl is wonderful and really understands each dog and what they need. Her house and grounds are perfect for her canine guests - they get to run and play or relax as they desire! It really is like camp for dogs!
Cheryl was fabulous to work with. It was very apparent from our meet and greet that she understands how to make a pup and the pup's parent feel comfortable. She let Brooklyn wander around to check out all the scents. She showed us around her property and then just let us sit for a while so she could see hoe Brooklyn did once she calmed down from all of the excitement.

The stay itself was also great. She was very responsive and had everything ready for her when we arrived and when we went back to pick her up. Brooklyn is already sleeping off all the fun at my feet - from the looks of it she had a great time!
Great stay with Cheryl. Feel like she really likes and cares for dogs. Very good communications about the stay and pick up.
Excellent experience. Nice place for dogs to run around, great host. Our dog developed an eye infection and Cheryl was able to take her to the vet and administer medication everyday. She kept us notified, giving us peace of mind. Mitra refused to eat her usual kibble and Cheryl handled that well by switching food and also gave free samples for us to try at home.
Cheryl was very accomodating. She has a great location just off of 92 which was very convenient to a day in Half Moon Bay! Her property is all fenced in which is great for dogs who want to run around a little bit. Cheryl is very comfortable around a variety of dogs and handles them well (we have an excitable and not completely trained lab puppy and she was very good with her!) I would definitely trust Cheryl with our precious little girl in the future!
Dog sisters Duchess, 4 year old Pittie girl, and Molly, 11 year old Kerry, were picked up healthy and happy after a week's vacation with Cheryl. Besides other critters, she knows dogs, assesses them as individuals and cares for them as though they are her own.
Her approach to care is professional and well planned including ID collars that will insure that your dog will be identified should any disaster occur. In addition she asks all the right questions before and during their stay.
I had many concerns boarding these two diverse critters. I visited and researched my options for three months. The senior Molly had never been boarded and truly benefitted from a home environment. Playful Duchess has hip/back complications that require monitored activity, space to romp, a daily hug and a couch. All these special needs were met.
Our experience with Cheryl has been a pleasure.
Thank you.
Thanks to Cheryl for taking care of Ruckus on mothers day! We didnt want to leave him at home by himself so we booked a last minute stay with cheryl. We emailed her 5am and she replied almost right the way! Totally awesome! I definitely recommend cheryl if u plan on a trip to half moon bay!
Cheryl is the ideal dog sitter. She even texts pictures of our dogs so we know they're in great hands!
Cheryl is the best. Ideal place for our pups! She also makes awesome dog food and is just an all-around awesome caretaker.
Cheryl has a perfect spot to host your dog, safe roomy and friendly. Iggy Pup came home happy and well exercised with a nice treat to boot. Would definitely recommend Cheryl to other folks looking for a good host in Half Moon Bay.
Wow, what a find Cheryl has been for us! She is wonderful! Our two German Shepherds had a great time and were given tons of loving care. Cheryl sent photos of them daily and gave us updates as to what they were doing all day. We looked forward to seeing the pics and knew they were in good hands. Cheryl has tons of experience and a terrific setup for the boys. We will be using her services again and again. Super sitter!
Thank you Cheryl for all the TLC!
Cheryl was wonderful! She was extremely flexible with drop off and pick up times. We have two cattledog mixes who are nearly 2 and are full of energy. Cheryl was completely unphased. Our boys were so relaxed when we picked them up and have been napping on and off all day since they got home. Sure evidence of a great time. Her home is completely dog friendly and SAFE. I would highly recommend her.
Cheryl was terrific. She was very attentive to our pups, timely, pleasant and had lots of safe space for them to play with. It was doggie heaven. Cheryl sent us pictures each day and followed our instructions to the T. It was a terrific experience and I would highly recommend Cheryl for taking care of your pups.

Michael and Buffy
It's very obvious Cheryl is a dog person! She really cared about the well being of Ulysses. He ate part of a candle at my house the day before he stayed with her and she monitored him and gave him special digestive food. She even checked in a few days later to make sure everything was ok. Great stay!
Cheryl was fantastic with my pups! Daily up date photos and special treats and sent home with a gift bag with samples of Cheryl's all natural food and treats all included in the five star treatment! It was so nice to know that on our relaxing vaycay the dogs were also getting R&R :) We will def be back!
This was our dog's second visit with Cheryl. Cheryl was great about sending us photos while we were away and keeping us informed. We could tell Junie was well cared for and happy. We will definitely continue to use Cheryl's services!!
Cheryl was great! She gave me a tour of her property before the dogs ever stayed with her and I was impressed. Once they were there I got pictures every day and the dogs were having a great time! Hard to find a place with land for the dogs to run around in the area. I would highly recommend her to everyone!
Cheryl is great with Jingles
Cheryl has taken care of our two Golden Retrievers four times now and although we are the types of owners who believe their dogs aren't truly comfortable with anyone but us, Cheryl is the next best thing! She is dog savvy (lots of dog care and training experience, trains horses too), caring and observant (she noticed Zoey had a slight limp on her last visit and asked us about any special care needed). Cheryl does a number of things that are important to us: She works at home so she doesn't leave the dogs alone for long periods, she has a good setup for caring for multiple dogs and can keep dogs separate if needed, and she has good exercise space on her property. When we drop our dogs off, they are happy to see Cheryl and greet her with wagging tails and kisses, a good sign! We've done meet and greets with several other sitters in the area (only because Cheryl wasn't available) and she is definitely our number one pick!
Cheryl was wonderful in ensuring all the dogs got along and she has plenty of space for large dogs to run around and play. Our dog came home happy and exhausted. We will definitely be back.
Cheryl was absolutely wonderful. She is a true dog lover and her house is set up perfectly for her canine companions and visitors. Junie was at ease from the time we met her and was excited to see Cheryl when I dropped her off. Cheryl kept us posted throughout our trip with photos and notes- we could see Junie was doing well and having fun. We picked up a happy and very well cared for dog! We will definitely use Cheryl for our future dog care needs!
Cheryl is the ideal dog sitter. She sent us tons of photos while we were gone, which we loved! She's definitely an animal lover and has a great setup at her home in Half Moon Bay. She also has her own line of holistic dog treats/food, which she gave to our pups. We'll definitely send our dogs back to Cheryl next time we go on vacation.
Willy and Cali had a great time staying with Cheryl, and we really appreciate that she could take them on very short notice (less than 24 hours!). Cheryl very much cares about each dog that stays with her and our dogs love staying with her. Thank you Cheryl!!!
Cheryl is great and jingles has a wonderful time when he goes on vacation. Cheryl keeps me updated with photos and notes!
Everything went very smoothly with the doggie drop off and pick-up. Cheryl kept in very good contact with me through out the reservation process and even sent a picture through text of my dogs playing. I would defiantly recommend Cheryl if you are staying in Half Moon Bay and I'd love to use her again. Woof, Woof Duke, Pockets and our Mom Brenda
Good communication....Really incredible...
Cheryl showed great flexiblity and wonderful care when we had to extend our trip a few days and needed someone to take care of Mojito a few extra days. We look forward to use Cheryl again!
Cheryl is absolutely fantastic and took excellent care of Mojito while we enjoyed an extended trip overseas. Cheryl made sure to communicate with us daily and shared pictures of Mojito's stay and experience in her home. We would be delighted to use Cheryl again and can recommend her to anyone looking for a warm and attentive dog sitting experience.
Cheryl was great! From the meet and greet to picking them up, Cheryl was on top of everything. She sent daily pictures and updates to let me know how my dogs were doing and by the time I picked them up they were exhausted!
Our sweet dog Max had a wonderful time with Cheryl and her furry friends! We were able to truly enjoy the Half Moon Bay wedding and events without worrying about Max. Cheryl sent photos and notes to keep us posted on Max's stay. If we're ever back in this area, we'd bring Max back for a repeat visit. Thanks, Cheryl!
Willy had a great time staying with Cheryl. He got to meet with other dogs she was caring for and also got to run around and play on her large property. Cheryl is very conscientous and very much cares about each of the dogs she cares for. Willy felt loved and very happy with Cheryl. Thank you Cheryl!
Both dogs had a great time. Cheryl has large secure yard plenty of room to play I would use Cheryl again
Sent me photos and video each day my dogs were quite content. Cheryl found some fleas and was a bit put out so gave them flea bath. Not sure how they got the fleas as I check every other day. In end all was fine and dogs had nice stay
Cheryl stepped in when we had an emergency. the Concierge team found her for us, and she was fantastic! It was such a relief to have her care for our dogs. She figured out our particular situation and gave us utter confidence in her ability to care for the dogs, even though we didn't get to meet in person. I will definitely call on her again.
Cheryl cared for our two German shorthairs for 12 days. Not a day went by without our hearing from her - sending us pictures and letting us know what "the kids" were up to. Cheryl is so easy to communicate with . . not only did she keep us informed about our pets, but we, in turn found ourselves sending her photos and updates about our own experiences while out of state on vacation.
Cheryl was a wonderful hostess. Her home is conveniently located on the way in to Half Moon Bay from 280. It is made up for dogs to have the run of the place. Cheryl has 2 dogs but has a separate area in case the guest dog doesn't get along with hers. She sent us photos and messages to assure us that our dog was fine.
Cheryl is down-to-earth and animal savvy. We felt totally comfortable with our first get-to-know-you meeting. We appreciated Cheryl keeping in touch with us via text and photos while we were gone. We already have two more stays reserved with Cheryl.
Cheryl is the best ever! She is so careing and affectionate with dogs. She is very compentent and knowledgable as well. She has a perfect set up to care for dogs. I give her my highest recomendation.
Cheryl is wonderful and took very good care of Willy. Her property is really well set up for taking care of dogs and they can run around on her property and play together. Cheryl is very conscientous and really cares about all the dogs she cares for, which includes foster dogs that stay with her, one of which Willy got to play with over the weekend! Wily had a great time and was happy to stay with Cheryl. I would highly recommend her!
From the moment I arrived I knew that Apollo would be ok here. Cheryl has that sort of take-care-of-business vibe that you expect from people who have lots of experience with horses. You just feel like she could break-in a stallion or deliver a calf if she had to, so taking care of your dog seems like a piece of cake. Her setup is definitely tailored to dogs though. There are all kinds of zones and areas for this or that contingency... truly a pro setup. There's lots of space on the property -- it's huge and it's all fenced in; so no worries about your child escaping. Cheryl is very nice, responsive and super professional. I'll definitely repeat.
My pups had another wonderful stay with Cheryl.
Cheryl is phnenomenal! She has extensive experience and knowledge of dogs as well as the perfect set up for caring for your pet. It's obvious that she loves animals. It is such a relief to find such a capable and loving person with which to leave our dog when we need this service. I would definately recommend Cheryl and I plan to use her whenever the need arises.
Cheryl was a wonderful sitter for my 2 pups (a lab and a corgis). She sent me pix after she picked them up on their first day. She kept in touch with me via text almost daily. On x'mas eve, she dressed up my pups and took a great pix for them, both of my pups were "smiling". I sent it to all my friends and they all said they looked extremely happy. I am so pleased with Cheryl's service and I definitely will contact her again when I need a dogsitter. She is THE BEST!
