About Sharla

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Sharla, I have been living and working in Chicago for the last 10 years. What I love most about this city are the people and the cute dogs that live here. I am a pet owner myself and an avid dog lover! I adopted a Bichon Poodle mix 6 years ago and he has forever changed my life. The connection that we have is beyond just owner and pet, he is my best buddy, my bundle of joy, my little side kick and my snuggle friend. We have gone on many adventures together, hiking, biking, beaching and lots of park explorations. We meet friends wherever we go and see them quite often on our treks or at gatherings. Mr Lu is a very gentle and sweet little guy that gets along with everyone and feels comfortable in almost every situation. He can be a picky eater sometimes, so, I certainly know the ins and outs of helping with the picky eaters. We live in a second floor, spacious, two bedroom apartment in a quiet residential neighborhood, next to Revere Park and not far from spacious Horner Park and Wells Park. There is a nice big back porch for doggie sun bathing and taking in the fresh air. We keep things nice and cool in the apartment during the hotter months of the year, Mr Lu also enjoys his cooling mat. In the winters, we have radiant heat and all the pups usually like to snuggle up on pillows underneath the daybed, like a little lair. We know almost all of our neighbors and dog neighbors in the area. We visit our favorite dog haunts for treats and walk to different neighborhoods, exploring the city and taking lots of pee breaks and water stops along the way. We have hosted our friends' dogs over the years and Mr Lu has shared his toys, his bed, his water bowl, and his affection with other breeds. We have a lot of cuddles and love for all of our pet friends, we welcome your special companion to stay with us for great care, comfort and lots of walks and treats!

Sharla is warm, gracious person who has an incredible bond with her dog Mr Lu. Both her and Mr Lu love the outdoors and live steps away from a large park which means guest dogs will get to enjoy plenty of fresh air, sunshine and exercise during their vacay with Sharla. Additionally Sharla is committed to the happiness, safety and well-being of all dogs in her care and is able to devote a significant amount of her time to them. I highly recommend Sharla as a Dogvacay host and am excited that she will be joining the team!
