About Cherilyn

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm that lady that can't help herself from making cutesy sounds at your dog when I see you on the street. My own 15-year-old puppy just passed away (her 16-year-old "sister" passed away three years ago) and I'm not ready for another full-time pup of my own yet.

I would, however, love your pups to come visit me at my house. There will obviously be lots of cuddling and fun walks and you'll probably get more photos texted to your phone than you can handle because if there's anything I love almost as much as puppy (all dogs are puppies to me) cuddling, it's puppy photo shoots.

In real life I'm a CPA and accountant for a local software company. Because I have a full time job, I can't be with your pups all day during the workweek.

I have a lot of experience caring for senior dogs, including managing and administering medication.

I've recently updated my policy to take care of only two pups at a time (previously it was three). Taking only two pups at a time will allow me to provide more individualized care and attention to each pup!

I do have three cats, including two kittens who are very curious about dogs and like to get to know the pup visitors.

My house has a good sized fenced yard, but I generally like to stay with the pup when they're in the yard because I do live on a busy street.

I'm probably not the best fit for super high energy pups who need a ton of exercise. Pups here generally get a quick walk in the morning to take care of business, and then a longer (usually about a mile) walk in the early evening. If you have a pup that is used to regular runs, he or she may be a little bored here.

Cherilyn has been our dog sitter now for about 2 years, and we have had nothing but awesome experiences with her! Our dogs absolutely love going to her house, and get so excited now when they hear us say her name, "Cherilyn." :)
We never have to worry when we drop them off at her house, and always receive really funny picture updates throughout our trip. Our dogs were both a little shy around other people/dogs, and this has also been a great way for them to get out of their comfort zone a little bit, and get to meet others. I don't know what we would do without her as we are young and like to travel quite a bit. It's really great to know that finding a dog sitter is the last thing we ever have to worry about. Thanks, Cherilyn! See you again soon! :)

Cherilyn took excellent care of our little corgi. We had not used DogVacay before, but know people who are petsitters down in CA so decided to give the service a try. I liked Cherilyn based on her location on the way to the airport and it seemed like a good fit. She sent great pictures via the DogVacay app daily and I could see our dog was having a great time. He looked so happy and bright, I was almost afraid he was not going to want to come home! j/k, would absolutely recommend Cherilyn.

Cherilyn was fabulous with my pup, Selby! She made Selby feel happy and at home and sent me lots of pictures and updates! I hope she will be available the next time I go out of town.
I was new to Dog Vacay, but lucky to start off with such a great sitter, Cherilyn. She was very nice and gentle with my old pup Mufasa and sent me picture updates everyday. Mufasa had a foot injury during his stay with Cherilyn and she kept me updated on his status daily and always checked in to see what options I preferred in terms of his care. Because of Cherilyn, Mufasa had a great stay! Will definitely book her again!

He returned to Cherilyn and was thrilled. I got some great photos from her :). It was a short stay, but still grrrrreat!
Tons of updates and photos. Above and beyond care of my little guy. Highly recommended.
Cherilyn was great! Super fast and great communication. This was my pup's first night away from home and she did a great job of putting my mind at ease with good communication and great updates. She was very understanding of his needs and even tolerated my extensive instructions for him (I'm pretty particular). I would definitely bring Mumford back.

This is the easiest 5 stars I've ever given anyone. I think my dog, Chelsea, had more fun at Cherilyn's than I did on vacation! Cherilyn sent daily updates and cute photos, and even a cool video of my dog running and playing with another dog. It was clear Chelsea was being given great care. I strongly recommend Cherilyn if you want your dog to get lots of attention and love.

Cherilyn is the best! Super flexible and accommodating, and a true dog lover through and through! She was willing to take on our pup even with all her quirks and made sure to send us lots of sweet photos while we were away! We're already booked for another trip with her next month! Thanks, Cherilyn!

Cherilyn was absolutely fabulous with Trotsky. She understood all of his requirements and made sure he has a comfortable stay. She was very flexible about our weird drop-off and pick-up times. We got daily updates about his adventures. Although Trotsky being a lazy lump, it was mostly pictures of him lounging in different parts of the house. We will definitely be bringing Trotsky back to Cherilyn!

Cherilyn is the ultimate dog Auntie! Winston stayed with her for 26 days while I was away for work and a vacation. I was very nervous but knew Cherilyn would take care of him. She did more than that- she also took care of me! I received photos and videos and updates on how he was doing nearly every day. I could see Winston was having a great time which allowed me to focus on having one too!

I provided 4 pages of written directions for my little guy and Cherilyn happily took it all on. She asked good questions and spent time with Winston before hand so he would be comfortable with her.

When I picked Winston up he was freshly bathed and grinning! He clearly missed me but loved his time with Cherilyn.

I can't recommend Cherilyn enough!

Cherylin D. takes great care of my "puppy". She is flexible about drop off and pick up times and really goes out of her way to send me photos of what he is up to while on Vacay! I know Joey is well cared for and happy while I am away. Kathy R.
I had a great vacation not worrying about my skittish sweetheart. Cherilyn's warmth and photo updates gave me peace of mind. Thank you!
Cherilyn was awesome..she was flexible, had a great personality, and took great care of Raynor! Will absolutely take him back to visit again...
Cherylin was great and bella loves her! She even came home from work early to accomidate our drop off! Highly recommended! This was our second stay!
Cherilyn was great with our 70lb. high energy lab mix. Our dogsitter friend who was supposed to watch our dog bailed on us without notice. Cherilyn came to the rescue and took in our dog on short notice the day before Thanksgiving a few hours before our plane took off! She took great care of our buddy and sent us daily text photo updates. We could not have been happier with the experience. Thanks Cherilyn!

Cherilyn was fantastic! She took our dog Stella out every day for walks and frolics in the dog park -- and texted images of our happy puppy each day! We will definitely have Stella stay with Cherilyn again.
Cherilyn was great! This was my first time using DogVacay and it was awesome! I recieved updates and lots of pics from Cherilyn and I think Luna was even sad to go home! I would use her again-friendly, easy going, and very sweet!
Cherilyn was great! She was prompt to respond and sent us tons of pictures of our pups. I would definitely recommend her to anyone that wants their pups in excellent care.
Cherilyn took wonderful care of my two senior dogs! She sent me daily updates on them and I always felt assured that they were in good hands. I would definitely use Cherilyn again and recommend her to anyone who needed a pet sitter!!!
Our dog had a great time with Cherilyn! I was a little worried that he'd spend his time moping, but they got friendly together, and cuddled, watched movies, and went for walks! Akamaru can't wait for us to go out of town again so he can spend time with Cherilyn!

A great second stay with Julia. I love that she sends me photo updates.
This was our first experience with Dogvacay and first time meeting Cherilyn. She took wonderful care of our 2 Chihuahua mix pups. She sent us photo updates daily, and both dogs looked relaxed and happy in every shot. When we picked them up after 3 days with her, they were clearly comfortable and happyd.Cherilyn was super flexible on timing, and very responsive. We will definitely book another vacay with her when we're next in need of a superb dog sitter.

It was great. Cherilyn was very nice, helpful and communicative.
Cherilyn is simply wonderful. I really can't sing her praises enough. Our two pups can be a little prissy and high maintenance but she totally works her magic with them.
They absolutely love her and you can totally tell she has a lot of love for animals. She's been patient and flexible with travel schedules and sends tons of pictures of your happy dogs while you're away. I could go on and on! Our dogs always come home happy, loved, and tired! :)

Cherilyn was great! We had never left our dog with a sitter before but Cherilyn did a great job and sent me updates about him a couple times every day. It really helped to put my mind at ease. When we came to pick him up he seemed happy and had definitely made a connection with her!

Cherilyn is our favorite dog sitter! We take advantage of her services whenever we go out of town and have never been disappointed with the experience. The house is always exactly how we left it, the dogs are happy and the water bowl is full. Highly recommended!!

Cherilyn was great with my dog. Very accommodating to her needs and willing to do whatever she needed.
This was the second time Cherilyn stayed with our dogs while we were away and we plan on booking her for all our future dog sitting needs. She is awesome!
Cherilyn took great care of my Julia. Thank you!
Cherilyn is awesome! She stayed at our house with our 2 dogs and took great care of them. She sent us fun pictures and videos of them every day, which was well beyond what I expected. Upon our return, the house was clean and tidy, the dogs had plenty of water and were in great spirits. I just hope she is available to stay with our pups every time we go out of town. Vacation is so much better when you know your loved ones are in good hands. Thanks again, Cherilyn!

Cherilyn took excellent care of Missy & Cedric. When we came home they seemed happy and relaxed! Getting pictures and messages while we were away made it easy to enjoy our trip and not have any worries! Thank you!!!
Cherilyn was a great dog sitter. She sent daily pictures with updates on how Lola was doing. At no time did I worry that Lola was not being well cared for!
Cherilyn was a great sitter for my dog Moe. She sent me pictures and little messages everyday to keep me updated on how Moe was doing. It was a delight to still feel connected to him even though I wasn't there. I felt relaxed in knowing he was getting great care and love. I am excited to know that when I go away again I will have an awesome, reliable sitter for Moe!

Another fantastic vacay. Schatze hearts Cherilyn!
We asked Cherilyn for her services again while we went to the coast and once again, she's so great! She sent me photos and updates every day and I was really able to relax and enjoy myself while on vacation. We have pre-booked her for another trip in April. Plus, she just left me the sweetest card thanking ME for letting her watch my dog. She's the best!

Cherilyn was amazing! She and Schatze had so much fun, and I could tell that Schatze was well taken care of.
Professional, responsive, and my pets loved her! She sent multiple updates so I wasn't worried. We can't wait to work with Cherilyn again!
Cherilyn is amazing! She is on time, professional, loves dogs, and is very trustworthy. I will be asking her to dogsit for us again!
