About Cheryl

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dogs give unconditional love. My dog Paddle is my best friend...always there and I will always be there for him. My pup has a big mouth for the first 5 minutes of meet and than it is play time. I have now..a new cute little girl beagle...named Sydney. She is the best! They..just want a life of fun and trusting. Once a pup..trusts you, it is a bond for life. I am a person that
gives 100 percent ..spending time together. Dogs have nothing if they do not have great owners. I would love a meet and greet..with your pups. I give 24 hour supervision. My husband is in corporate business and I work from home. I am always here. My house is super clean and my visiting pups love it. I am no kennel. I only take 3 pups at at time. I have a Dog Bark pass also. I do not have a closed yard. I do have a private enclosed yard that I do go to down the street. Plenty of walking area..that we have in Lakeview. I am also a dog trainer. Thank you, Cheryl.

I've known Cheryl now for nearly a year. She is not only a wonderful human being to humans but equally as wonderful to animals. She is not only kind, patient and compassionate but very knowledgeable and in tune to an individual animal's needs. She helped me immensely introduce a dog I recently rescued, into my home of two other dogs and several cats. She had studied "pack training" and explained that it was important to have the new dog accepted into "the pack". I watched her methodically and patiently read my dogs signals and she went through a series of steps to acquaint them properly. I watched and with her lead , my dogs, after about 1/2 hr were all calm and happy. She is a reliable and dedicated petsitter and I would never want anyone else to take care of my pets. I trust her not only with my pets but also in my home. She takes her work seriously and aims to please. I highly recommend Cheryl as a petsitter and you can leave your pet (s) with her and not worry for a minute. They are safe and sound 100% under her watch!

I was very nervous in leaving our puppy with a stranger but Cheryl was great and put me at ease from the start. she communicated with me throughout the day and was very caring to our puppy (Bear) will definitely use her again.
Cheryl sent lots of photos showing how exhausted Graham was from the many walks and trips to City Bark. I'm a very active person so it comforts me to know that Graham is getting similar exercise to what I am able to provide him.

She always has another dog or two which is important to me because Graham (being a labrador) has a bit of separation anxiety so it helps to keep his mind occupied with other dogs.

She cares about her pets and it shows in the way she cares for others.

I also love that she lets the dogs have a bed to themselves. Graham is spoiled rotten and so I love that he gets to sleep in a bed (other than my own lol)

Our rescue Lillie is a shy, nervous hound but was part of Cheryl's pack lickety split! Cheryl has a gift for making dogs feel at ease in her home. We were so impressed with how fast Lillie (normally not so social) became buddies with Sydney Moo and Pizza Paddle thanks to Cheryl's guidance and skills as a trainer. Lillie came home relaxed, happy, and tuckered out from all the play-time. We've already booked Cheryl for another vacay-- she's great!

Came in from out of town last minute with my two pups.I had been looking since a day before for a place but had no luck. Here I am on a Friday night driving around with the hubby, searching on my phone. By the grace of goodness, I found Cheryl. Sent her a message, and within minutes she replied. I felt so lucky, the pups instantly felt comfortable with Cheryl's pack. I loved her pack as much they did! :) She knew exactly what they would do when they arrived, scope the area and it was doggy-proof and approved. She sent me several pictures and updates. I definitely recommend. She and the hubby are AWESOME!

Cheryl was great! She sent pictures and updates every day. I could tell Neyman was happy and having a great time with Pizza Paddle and Sydney-Moo. It is obvious that Cheryl loves dogs and knows how to care for them. Neyman is tired today (day after his 5 day vacation) and misses his two new friends ?? I will definitely have Cheryl watch Neyman again!

Dogs were well kept and came home happy! Cheryl made sure to keep in touch with me by sending daily texts and pictures.
It was very easy to set up our Dogvacay with Cheryl and our dog liked her right away. You can tell that she has a lot of experience with dogs from the way she interacts with them. She sent updates everyday. Thanks Cheryl!
Cheryl is the best! Provides lots of love and fun for the pups as well as updates for us while we are away missing our pup. Bella loves going to Cheryl's to see the pack.
We left our boy with Cheryl for 6days. She took him on walks everyday and sent us at least 3 pics a day. The pics where great and kept me at ease knowing he was enjoying himself. Cheryl was also very accomodating with pick up and drop off times. Great experience!!

Cheryl and her husband were fantastic. My dog is very shy, and I was worried about having to leave her for a week. Almost immediately I was at ease. Cheryl was very caring of Essie and had a plan to make her feel comfortable and part of her pack of dogs. She sent updates and photos regularly and in all of them Essie seemed happy and comfortable.
I can not recommend them more.

Absolutely wonderful sitter!!! My 13 year old lab came back in better shape than when she left due to Cheryl's excellent care! Hermes, our 4 year old mix had never been away from home and she was very well taken care of and settled in nicely. We received daily pics and updates on our babies and I was very much at ease knowing Cheryl was taking care of them. I highly recommend Cheryand love that she watches the babies 24/7. Iand have her on speed dial for my next trip out of t!! Thank you Cheryl!!n. ,

Cheryl has taken care of my dog three times so far. She takes very good care of him and this gives me great comfort. It is obvious that Cheryl loves and understands the needs of each individual dog.
Cheryl was awesome with sending pictures and keeping us updated on our girl. Our boxer must have had an awesome time because she slept for 2 days after! We will certainly use Cheryl again.
Cheryl is amazing as ever! Always a pleasure!
First time long-term separation for our young pup....but, from the first conversation with Cheryl. I was convinced that this would be a positive experience for him. Cheryl was very good and made sure that we received daily text updates with pictures! The home is very pet friendly and all of the "pack" gel quickly. She and her husband are very attentive and it is clear that they love animals (and the animals love them back). I would highly recommended Cheryl's service

Cheryl was awesome. I arranged a meet and greet just to make sure all the dogs got along fine. And they did! During our 11 day vacation, I got daily texts with pics. I felt like my Sophia was in really good hands. Thanks Cheryl!
Cheryl kept in touch and made my dog fee loved and well taken care of. She sends pics and keeps you posted on your dog's status. Very good experience; will use again!
I recently moved to New Orleans and was really concerned about finding someone I could trust to care for my baby. Previously we were very fortunate to have a wonderful sitter right next door that my Bella loved. Finding Cheryl and Tim was truly a Blessing! Bella loved them from the very moment she met them, which is not typical for her! It was obvious from the beginning how kind and caring Cheryl and Tim are, and how much they love 4-legged babies! While I was gone I received regular pictures and updates, which was reassuring. But most importantly, when I returned home, it was so obvious that Bella had a good time and was well cared for! I could tell by her energy that Bella had regular walks and playtime while I was gone. She even had a new toy, which she loves! Now that I have found Cheryl and Tim, I would never even consider leaving Bella with anyone else! She is my baby, and I feel completely confident and safe with the care she receives while I'm gone. They love my baby almost as much as me. :) I couldn't have wished for better care than what Bella receives with Cheryl and Tim. They are so kind and caring and it shines through in everything they do! Since Bella doesn't always take to people, I knew when she liked them instantly that they were the ones for us!

Very flexible working around my schedule and did a wonderful job!!
Mo loved staying with Cheryl. I feel like she and her husband loved him as much as I do.
Our little dog Charlie's stay with Cheryl was wonderful! We adopted him only in February and he hadn't had much chance to interact yet with other dogs. At Cheryl's, he fast became good friends with her Paddle and played so much with him and the other dogs, he fast became 'one of the gang.' Cheryl took such very good care of him and took him on lots of walks with his pals, which he loved. Our family is so happy to have found Cheryl, and Charlie I am sure will be very very happy to stay with her again soon! She is really an angel!

Cheryl is a God-send!!! I'm a very particular handler, so when I tell you that Cheryl is absolutely amazing, I mean just that! She & her husband spoiled my GSD - from dog parks, walks, feeding her turkey, sending me slew of pictures, etc., I was extremely impressed with the care given which made me feel very comfortable. When I brought my dog home, she was so worn out I had the check on her constantly to see if she was still breathing! Lol! I will definitely send my dog to Cheryl again.

Cheryl made my chocolate lab feel right at home. I received cute photos at least once a day showing me how happy my dog was. Thank you Cheryl for taking such great care of Bella. We will be back!!
Cheryl was so sweet to my pup Arlo! Her pup and Arlo became fast friends and playmates. A big bonus for Arlo is her proximity to City Bark, where Arlo loves to go. His schedule of daily park visits was maintained and that sure makes him happy! Thanks for taking such good care of him, Cheryl!

Saphire always has a great time when we leave her with Cheryl.
Cheryl was awesome looking after our two dogs. They settled in with her great and they were walked and fed and had a great time. We would definitely use Cheryl again and recommend her wonderful care for other pooches!
Cheryl and her fur baby, Pizza Paddle, are awesome. They made Milo feel extremely welcome and were the perfect company while I was away. When my return flight was super delayed due to weather, Cheryl could not have been more accommodating and gracious. I would not hesitate to book with Cheryl again.

Cheryl took care of our dog and did a great job. She sent us updates and pictures of our dog daily and reassured us she was doing. Kaylee came home happy and had a great visit. Thank you Cheryl
Sydney is a very energetic/vocal beagle puppy so I was thrilled that Cheryl was knowledgeable about the breed. I felt so incredibly relaxed knowing that Sydney was in such good hands and that Sydney and Cheryl's pup, Paddle, quickly became the best of puppy-friends.

When I went to get Sydney, she clearly bonded with Cheryl and didn't want to leave. Next time I need to go away, I would not hesitate to leave Sydney with Cheryl.

Cheryl is an amazing person and a true dog-lover! Unfortunately though, her dog, Pizza Paddle (or "Paddle" as he's called) seems a bit too aggressive. I left my Izzy with Cheryl certain that she'd be well-taken-care-of - which she was - but I wouldn't deny that I had some hesitation about leaving Izzy with an aggressive dog. I have no hesitation or reservations about Cheryl herself, and she's a most excellent dog host, and I only left Izzy at her place after seeing how she can control Paddle, but Paddle is the one I was hesitant about. Would I recommend Cheryl as a host for other dogs? Probably, but I'd also recommend potential dog parent guests to closely observe Paddle's interaction with their dog when they go drop them off, and decide on that basis.

Bisou and Caroline had a great time at Cheryl's place! Bisou needs medication and has a medical condition that Cheryl handled with ease and new a lot about already. They were both in great spirits when we picked them up and even though Bisou usually has a lot of anxiety when coming back from a sleepover he was totally fine! I would definitely bring them back to her again. She also kept me updated and sent me cute pictures. Thanks Cheryl!

Cheryl was great with Sapphire. The dogs played a lot and played in the Dog park. I will use her again when I travel.
Cheryl did a great job with my dog! I couldn't ask for a better substitute for myself. I had never left him before for more than two days. She made him feel calm and at ease and her dog and mine became best friends, he was so sweet :) Mine is a companion dog so he needs more attention, and Cheryl works from home so it was perfect for getting him adjusted and not feeling abandoned. I got several pictures and updates everyday. I no longer have to worry about going on vacation, we will definely use her again!
