About Cherrie

You can relax knowing I have many years experience raising dogs, cats, and children! I currently have an "empty-nest" and love the company of my canine friends as I have none of my own currently. I have a large chain-link fenced in back yard perfect for Fido to stretch his or her legs out and bask in the sun. I also have a screened in porch for those hot days to welcome any friend to spend quality time indoors. I have experience raising purebreds and understand and respect their "posh" nature. I also am comfortable taking care of the needs of the elderly pups too! You can trust in me to show your dog all my attention. I'm conveniently located between Orlando, Kennedy Space Center, Cruise Lines, and the beaches for all your vacation needs.

Cherrie is the BEST!! She's super flexible and friendly and definitely puts the dogs best interest first! I can not recommend her highly enough!!
I would not consider leaving my dogs with anyone else!! Cherrie LOVES the dogs she cares for and I could NOT be more happy with her!!
Cherrie was great and very welcoming to myself and fur baby Leah. I felt comfortable leaving her with Cherrie right away and plan for Leah to make a visit again soon!
Amazing!
Cherrie was absolutely wonderful. We could tell when we dropped off our babies that they were going to have a great time while we were on our 8 day cruise! (We brought the dogs all the way from Alabama.) Her home is a great place for dogs and you can tell she provides them with top notch TLC! Our two dogs definitely missed us when we picked them up, but were exhausted from all the playtime and excitement at Cherrie's. We would definitely be a repeat customer! :)

Cherrie is the best...that is all I can say...our sarabelle loves her to death and is so happy when she realizes she is going there....thanks Cherrie for loving her so much...
We will use her again anytime we go to Florida !!
Fantastic Wilson loves it at Cherrie's house. She took really good care of him. Highly recommended A great setup for the dogs to go in and outside to play. You won't be disappointed !.!
Cherrie is always awesome! We are super bummed she is all booked up for our next vacation dates, but she is just that good! Book her while you can!
Cherrie is the absolute best!!! I would not trust my dog with anyone else!!!
Cherrie is wonderful with my dog!!! I have used her services several times and never had to worry about my baby while he was with her. She does an awesome job.
Eddie's 13 yrs. old and is quite the character! Cherrie and he loved each other and staying at her home. From now on, it's Cherrie's place!
Cherrie was great with my dogs, even the bad one who was very rambunctious! She was very attentive and caring. I really appreciated her last minute acceptance of my reservation. Thank you!
This is the second time I've left my babies with Cherrie and couldn't be happier!! She LOVES the dogs and takes SUPER good care of them - like they were her own! I wouldn't leave my dogs with just anyone, but I trust Cherrie!! Two enthusiastic paws up for her!!

Cherrie was great, as always! Allowed us to drop off our pups really early and pick up really late due to flights. She really loves our babies which makes us feel so comfortable leaving them with her! Thanks Cherrie!!
5 Stars: Smooth communication and overall experience. Provider strikes us that she has a genuine love for animals. Would recommend.
Cherrie was awesome again! Very Flexible and took great care of our babies. They will be staying with Cherrie for our next vacation this month! :) Thanks Cherrie!
Jerry loved visiting Cherrie. She is wonderful with him- takes great care of him and treats Jerry like a part of her family. Thank you!
Cherrie obviously loves what she does! Our dog Tucker had a good time!
my lab is exhausted. He played with another lab while staying with Cherrie. Cherrie was very friendly and easy to talk to and instantly greeted my puppy and made him feel at home. She opened the back door and allowed my dog to go into the yard and get familiar with the area which made him feel more relaxed. Cherrie sent updates on his status during the day. On pick up he was happy to see me and didn't show any signs of his usual separation anxiety and since he ate that tells me he was relaxed enough to do it which made me feel great. I would definitely recommend Cherrie and use her again if I am in the area again.

This is our pup's 2nd stay with Cherrie and of course he was very excited and happy to see her. She has such a warm personality, my dog just loves her. When we picked him up, he was very happy, and went right to sleep in the back of our car up until the next day. He must have had a great time. Thank you Cherrie!!

Our pup must have had a great time with Cherrie as he has never been more content or relaxed after returning from a boarding experience. It was a breeze to set up a reservation with Cherrie, and she was very communicative throughout the week-long stay. She sent photos of him and gave us updates. Cherrie was kind enough to let us make a last minute extension to our reservation, and responded to all our messages immediately. She was also very flexible about drop-off and pick-up times which was extremely helpful. It seems our pup was happy to have other dogs to play with, and that her family took wonderful care of him. We couldn't have asked for anything more and are very grateful to Cherrie and her family!

Cherrie is such a helpful and easy-going host. She allowed us to make last minute changes so that we could drop our dog off a day earlier. She responded within seconds of our request and really made us feel comfortable about leaving our pup with her during our trip.

I trust Cherrie to the fullest with Rosco and he loves going to stay with her. Would recommend her to anyone!
As always Cherrie took excellent care of Rosco for us. I always know that when I leave Rosco with Cherrie everything will be great!!
Cherrie deserves more than 5 paws. She took excellent care of Wilson. She is a caring dog lover. She promptly responds to texts and kept us updated. Her house is neat and has a nice screened porch area and fenced in backyard that is perfect for pets. We could enjoy our trip knowing Cherrie was taking excellent care of our dog. When we picked Wilson up he looked great. We will use her again in the summer. Thank you so much Cherrie, we appreciate everything you did to ensure Wilson had a great time. He really liked you. Just saying he is a great judge of character.

Cherrie was so friendly and took great care of our old pups!
Cherrie was awesome! We went on a cruise and she was near the port. Cute house with fenced in yard. She sent my mom picture updates while we were away. Flexible pick up and drop off times. Played ball with my doggies so much that the slept the entire 8 hour trip home! You could tell she enjoys dogs! Will use her again if in area.

Great experience, our second time booking with Cherrie and she was again very accommodating and attentive. Already booked my pup's next stay at Cherrie's! :)
good experience, nice indoor and oudoor space. Cherrie was very accomodating
We have 3 large dogs and rarely get the chance to go away because we don't like to leave them alone in an empty house. We found Cherrie on this site and she agreed to watch our doggies, she was happy to mix their food the way I do, give them medications, let them sleep on her couch, and treat them like family. She will always be our first choice to watch our babies from now on. They were happy and worn out from playing when we picked them up!

Cherrie is one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She treated my "babies" like they were her own. When we decide to go on our next vacay Cherri will be the one we choose.
Since we found Cherrie, there is no place else on earth that our Sarabelle would like to go...and no where that we would want to take her...she is very good with animals and loves them....One of the Best doggie sitters that we have ever had for our girl....

We left our 5 y/o Lab and our 12 y/o mountain cur mix with Cherrie for 11 days. Both dogs were very well cared for by Cherrie. Although they were happy to see us (thank heavens!), they obviously had a good time with Cherrie. She will be caring for our dogs again in January and April!

This is the 5 times, 2 day care and 3 boarding. We have never been disappointed. Our puppy Lexi is comfortable with her. It is tough to leave Lexi but we are happy to do so with Cherrie.
Cherrie is awesome and spoils our dog! Roxy loves going there to play with the other dogs and get lots of personal attention from Cherrie and her family. We feel very comfortable leaving Roxy there and will do so again.
I am very pleased with Cherrie and will continue to use her. I highly recommend her and feel very comfortable leaving my Butch with her.
I could have ask for a better person to watch Rosco, she treated him like he was one of her own. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a loving and very caring person to watch your dog. I will use her again when I need someone to take care of Rosco.

Sarabelle just loves going there...Cherrie is the best doggie sitter she ever had....our recommendations of this beautiful lady are high...we will be using her service when we are in need of a doggie sitter for as long as she is around...
we even recommended her to our friends who have 2 doggies....

I could have not asked for a better sitter for Rosco, she is absolutely wonderful and would recommend her to anyone at any time. I will not have ever worry about Rosco again when we need someone to take care of him.
Cherrie was awesome! Our babies seemed to have a blast and really like Cherrie. We had an extremely early flight and would be returning quite late, I hate not sleeping without my furbabies, so I asked Cherrie if she would let us drop off very early and pick up quite late.. She was VERY accommodating and understood my worries of being away from my babies any longer than absolutely necessary! It's very clean Cherrie loves animals and I felt at ease living our two doggie with Cherrie! We will definitely use her again when our dogs need someone to watch them! Thank you Cherrie!! :)

Cherrie was great with Butch and I am using her again next month when I go away as well as the future.
My dog had fun today at Cherie's. Cherrie was available on short notice, and I appreciated that.
My dog was happy and well-taken care of. Cherrie was sweet enough to help me move the kennel out. She cuddled with the dog and understood how prissy she is about getting her feet wet.
Cherie actually had 2 of my girls this time as I set up 1 additional later..... My girls adore Cherie she is extremely attentive to them and they thrive on her attention. She is a wonderful sitter and we will use her as long as she will be with dogvacay. Brenna and Copper love you Cherie.

I love the fact that she is so good with them and that we do not have to worry while she is with them. If you are looking for an enthusiastic sitter with lots of love to share with your babies, then Cheries your person.

Always a good experience with Cherrie. Our puppy Lexi is always happy to see her. That speaks volumes about her care for our girl.
Cherrie was superb in every way in her care giving to our 6 month old puppy, Lexi and my son's dog Charlie. We left on our cruise confident that our puppy would be loved while we were gone.

I strongly recommend Cherrie to anyone who loves their dog and wants someone who can be depended on.

Cherrie loves Buddy and the feeling is mutual. Whenever we drop him off you'd think he was the one going on vacation. And, while he's happy to see us return, parting is 'such sweet sorrow '.
Highly recommend a stay with Cherrie, who met our Lab, Bella, at the door and introduced her to Buddy, another of her guests. Bella's nose went nuts sniffing every wonderful thing in Cherrie's spotless house. I think Bella's day was enriching and fun and wouldn't hesitate to take her to Cherrie's the next time we're in her neighborhood--which is convenient to the Kennedy Space Center if you're spending the day.
Hi Cherrie! Bellas sends wags!!

We have a 4 month old Min Pin and did not want to leave her in a kennel, she is a rescue dog from the SPCA and does not do well with hundreds of barking dogs. I visited several "Doggie Bed& Breakfasts" and did not get good vibes, but we are going on a cruise and need someone, some place that could take care of our little girl puppy. I found Cherrie on DogVacay. From the moment of our meet and greet, Lexi gravitated towards her. We booked some "Day Care" to get her used to being over someone's house before we board her with Cherrie. When I bring Lexi to Cherrie, she is wildly happy to see her. We trust Cherrie with our puppy and recommend her to anyone who wants a trusted care giver for their pet.

Cherrie was great with Rocky. When we brought him back for his second day as we visited the Kennedy Space Center he was excited to be there and ran into her house. I was never more comfortable to leave Rocky with someone who was no longer a stranger from the first five minutes we met.

Cherrie loved our dogs like they were her own. We are so happy to have found her. No more kennels for Monty & Woody! Thank you so much Cherrie!! :)
Cherrie is the best (hands down)! She took such great care off my little Jack Russell Terrier, Turbo. She even bought him a plastic pool since he loves to cool down after chasing squirrels and birds in the backyard. Turbo had a blast and came home happy and healthy. She's clearly a dog person and it shows. I highly recommend Cherrie (although I'd rather keep her as my secret! Lol!)

OMG, Cherrie was incredible!! Our 3 dogs had never been left before and we were so worried about leaving them with a stranger. No need! Though our dogs are all very potty trained, the stress and fear of being left with a sitter upset 2 of them so much they pooped and peed all over Cherrie's house, day and night!! When I checked in with her, she tried to downplay their bad behavior and kept praising them, telling us how wonderful they were and talked about all of their good points! To us, this was incredibly nice, considering how horrible it must have been for her! When we picked them up, she acted so sad to see them go and it was obvious that they were well loved, despite their terrible "bathroom" habits! We would place our dogs in her care in a heartbeat (if she would have us - which we wouldn't blame her if she wouldn't!). Cherrie is a true gem, and a wonderful, wonderful dog sitter!!! THANK YOU, CHERRIE!!

Cherrie was a wonderful host for my two dogs. They stayed with her for six nights and received plenty of love and affection. I'm pretty sure she actually spoiled them. If you're looking for a true dog lover to care for your fur kids, then Cherrie is the perfect fit.

I knew from the time I read Cherrie's profile, that this was the lady to take our Sarabelle to...She was totally awesome with her, and made Sarabelle feel right at home...mind you, Sara is almost 14yrs old and has hip and arthritis problems...she was taken care of very well...I will be using Cherrie again when we have to take a trip in Sept...She is just FABULOUS...she has a very nice and very clean home and a great yard for the dogs to play in....I will give her a 5 STAR + from the ODell family...thanks so much Cherrie....Sarabelle misses you...

Great, as always!
Our dog, Cocoa, has never spent a night away from home. We needed to take her with us on vacation because it was too much for the sitter here to care for her, and our two elderly dogs. The problem was that we also could not keep Cocoa in the time share we were staying in. My husband found Dog Vacay online before we left & arranged for Cherrie to keep her. We weren't too far away, so we visited several times while we there. Cocoa was having the time of her life! She bonded with Cherrie very quickly and seemed to trust her and like her immediately! It made our vacation so much more relaxing to know that Cocoa was cuddled, played with and happy! This woman loves the pets that come to stay with her & is very interested in making sure they are well cared for and having fun. It was a really great experience for our dog too, who is attached to us at the hip! I think this service is wonderful and Cherrie knows exactly what she's doing with your pet! You won't be disappointed, and we will be using Cherrie again whenever possible.

Cherrie replied to my last-minute request and met all my needs as well as Buddy's. Buddy had a great time playing with his new 'besties', both canine and human. He was tired, but happy when I picked him up. Many, many thanks! I definitely recommend Cherrie and will use her again if I need doggy care in the future. I also want to send out a big THANK YOU! to the dogvacay concierge service. You are amazing.

Cherrie sent pictures to me each day and dogs were well cared for while we were gone. They had a great time and we will definitely be visiting again in the future.
Very pleased with the experience. I had an extremely hard time leaving them for the first time over night and have been scheduling visits to slowly get them used to visiting Cheri in preparation for an upcoming long weekend vacation. Both dogs seemed to do great. They were well cared for and got lots of exercise. Cheri took great care of our dogs and it made me feel much better about having to leave them behind in our upcoming vacation. Thanks Cheri, for taking great care of my babies!

After my meet and greet with Cherrie I knew this was the right place for my dog, Lucy. Cherrie has a great, fenced in back yard with lots of dog smells! Lucy was in heaven! I could immediately tell that Cherrie is a true dog lover!
Lucy had a great stay with Cherrie. I appreciated the fact I could adjust my reservation by a day at the last minute because of a funeral. Cherrie was easy to work with and I highly recommend her. I will be using Cherrie again in the future.

Jace was dog-tired when I picked him up from Cherrie, after staying there five days. He is an energetic dog and also very needy of affection. Cherrie proved to be the best surrogate mom EVER! Thank you!
Cherrie was very forthcoming that Caeser was as we expected hesitant to interact with her. She was genuinely concerned and very assuring that she would continue to try to gain his trust but would be patient and understanding of his shyness. I was more comfortable with leaving him than I thought but feel that he was very well taken care of even if he did require special attention. I would highly recommend Cherrie.

If you are cruising out of Port Canaveral, Cherrie's house is very convenient. Puddin didn't want to leave so we know she was well loved. Thanks Cherrie!
Cherrie watched my three Yorkies while I went on an 8-day cruise. My oldest Yorkie, Reilley, is 12 and is diabetic, has Cushing's Disease and is blind. He requires two injections of insulin per day and takes a pill every day. I was hesitant to leave him with just anyone because of his special needs. Cherrie had watched my other two Yorkies at another time so I knew he would be fine with her. Before the cruise sailed away Cherrie contacted me to tell me Reilley was vomiting all night and was not eating. It was a Sunday and she took him to an emergency vet. They gave Rei a shot for nausea and all of his other vitals were good. I felt better about leaving for 8 days after Cherrie told me he was feeling better. She never complained about cleaning up after him and she actually was not feeling well herself when she had to take him to the vet. Long story short, Reilley was fine when I picked him up and all of them seemed very happy and looked great! I would highly recommend Cherrie to anyone. She really loves the doggies she cares for and I will definitely use her again!

Cherrie did an outstanding job taking care of our very old beagle. Smokey requires extra medication and attention because of her advanced age and Cherrie took care of everything. I felt so good that Smokey was in such caring hands.
Our dog Jerry was well cared for during our vacation. It was the first time away from us and Cherrie was absolutely wonderful. She cared for him as though he was her own. Cherrie was very kind and communication was impeccable. Our family will definitely use her sitting services again.
Read More...
Thanks again for another great experience! We appreciate you taking such good care of Roxy and for being so reliable. We'll definitely be back!
Cherrie watched my Yorkies Lucia and LeBron for a week. She was great with them. I called for an update several times and she reassured me that they were fine so I was able to enjoy my vacation. They seemed relaxed and happy when I picked them up. Her prices are very reasonable also. I will definitely use Cherrie again!

Cherrie is great to work with! Very responsive, kind, accommodating and just loves our dog Roxy! It's been such a big help to find her and know that we have somewhere safe and fun to bring our dog when we need to travel and can't take her. Thanks Cherrie!

Cherrie has watched over our 3 crazy dogs (one being a lab puppy) a couple of times. She always listens to what we say our dogs' different needs are (food, meds, crate time, etc). Every time I pick up the pups, they are happy and healthy! When they go back to her house, they are always happy to see her. This means the most to me! She has a nice clean house with a huge backyard and she genuinely loves dogs. As long as we are here near her, we will always take our dogs to Cherrie!

Cherrie P is wonderful person and is a true dog lover. She came thru in a pinch for us and took care of our pups for 10 days while we were out on vacation. This was our first time using DogVacay, so I was a little skeptical, but everything worked out like a charm thanks to Cherrie. She was very flexible, responsive and most importantly took great care of our dogs. I would HIGHLY recommend Cherrie!

Thank you Cherie for sitting for the guys while we were on vacation! They were extremely well cared for. Thank you for treating them as if they were yours. I received compliments from my neighbors about how well you handled them and will be passing your information on to them. Thank you for keeping them again and we definately will be calling you again and again. I appreciate the fact that you gave them their treats and their oral spray for their teeth in the mornings. I know That Brenna can be a stinker about it by sneezing ( so that you think she already had hers, believe ..... We know that trick very well!!!!!!! Lol) that's our stinky Brenna. Copper and Brenna as well as Frank and I thank you very much and we will be clients as longs as you are willing to sit for us!

I am very grateful for Cherrie's attentive care of my precious pups. I've left "the girls" with Cherrie three times so far and they always seem happy to see her and return in good health. Cherrie also has a great enclosed backyard which the dogs love. They get better care and are much happier than when I used to leave them at a kennel. I highly recommend Cherrie!

We were very nervous about leaving Findlay for a long weekend - but could not have been happier with the experience. I would highly recommend Cherrie for your pooch!
Murph's visit with Cherrie was awesome! She treated him just like he was hers....we felt very comfortable leaving him with her. We would definetely recommend her for the job!! She even sent us pictures of him doing different things. Thinking of using Cherrie's services....she's your gal!
