About Sharron

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a healthy retiree. I grew up on a farm where taking care of animals was a part of my daily life. When my children were small we always had an assortment of animals. Since I stopped working I adopted Brody. He is 3. He weighs about 25 lbs and he loves other animals and people.I also have a Black Lab named Elvis. He is very mild mannered. He is 13 years old. We have a doggie door to the completely fenced in back yard. There are walking trails right across the street. I will make sure your pet is happy and well cared for!
For overnight stays if the drop off time and the pick up time exceed 8 hrs a days boarding will need to be booked.

Our two mini aussies loved their stay with Sharron. Such a great host. It was their first away from home and Sharron was able to make them feel right at home.
Sharron was nice and her home and yard were secure, but my dog and all of her bedding was flea infested when we brought her home. This is very hard to do as our little girl is hairless AND was on a topical flea preventative at the time of her four night stay. We could actually pick the fleas off of her and could easily see all the bites they left behind. That was a horrible experience for our little girl, but we were also under attack. I received several bites as well, within the first few days of bringing her home. We changed our little girl over to an internal flea and tick preventative and did repeated washings vaccumings, spraying, etc. to get rid of the fleas. Even still it took a few weeks and several more washings to finally rid her and her bedding of the fleas. Well, at least we hope they are gone. We haven't seen any or been bitten for a while now. Sadly, with all this occurring we no longer feel comfortable using Sharron as our dog sitter...

Sharron is a true dog whisperer! Our little Yorky had a great time in their home...trying to claim her rightful position as Queen Ziva! The family dogs went all out to please her. They worked diligently to help Ziva feel like a family member. She ate well...a sure sign that she felt like a member of the family!

Sharron has taken care of my dog Callie several times. Callie is always happy and healthy when we return. Sharron always keeps us updated with photos and texts so I never have to wonder or worry how my dog is doing.
Great and caring. My dogs had never been away from home, and Sharron made sure they felt safe and comfortable during their 12 day stay. Thank you, Sharron!
Sharron was wonderful to our little dog, Mason. Mason was very upset about being away from his familiar surroundings, but Sharron was very attentive and comforting to him. Sharron even washed all the little goobers from his eyes!
Sharron was great! I had a last minute weekend reservation that I booked a couple of days before and Sharron responded very quickly to my messages. I was initially attracted to her house which was even more beautiful in person. My little Louie felt right at home the instant we got there!

During my trip, Sharron made sure to sent me at least 2 updates a day with pictures. She has more than enough space to handle many dogs but I really liked that she made sure to only have 4 at a time. Her own dogs were very happy and loving right off the bat. Definitely will be sure to book her again!

Sharron was wonderful with my dog. I felt very comfortable leaving my fur baby in her care. She sent photo updates daily, and I could tell my pooch was doing very well. She has a nice yard for the dogs to run around and easy in and out access to indoors. I would not hesitate to use Sharron again should we need to travel without our dog in the future.

Great, great, great! Sharron took wonderful care of our two dogs. They were happy puppies. Thank you Sharron!
This is the 3rd time my dog has stayed with Sharon. My dog, peanut, is always happy when I drop her off. She runs to the door as is excited to see Brody.

Sharon sends pictures and always answers my texts within minutes. When I pick peanut up she is happy to see me

Thank you Sharron for taking great care of Maisie.
Our Beagle Ozzy had a great time at Sharon's house! Sharon sent us picture updates and messages during his 4 night stay with her. Ozzy was treated like he was one of her own. We would definitely use her again!
Sharron was great with our dog Maddy. We are new dog owners and were worried and a little over protective about where we would leave our Maddy while on vacation. Sharron was the third meet and greet we had and as soon as we walked in to her home with Maddy we knew we had the right fit. Her home is welcoming and her yard is secure. Sharron was comfortable administering Maddys oral medication. She sent us picture updates to let us know how Maddy was doing. We felt that Maddy was in excellent care while at Sharron's. We will definitely use Sharron in the future!

Sharron is wonderful! She and her husband made Cali feel right at home and comfortable. Cali also had a blast playing with the other dogs. She is already booked for her next stay.
Very considerate and professional. Great communication. She's an asset to your organization. We appreciate everything she di for Muffie. Thanks
Waffles had an excellent stay! He really enjoyed playing with the other dogs and was exhausted when we brought him home. Thank you!!!
Peetie had a ton of fun with his new friends! Sharon was well attentive and very easy to get a hold of. We will be using her again in the future!
Duke seemed to love staying with Sharron. She sent photos of him playing and he was worn out after we picked him up! Our pup will be staying with her again soon.
Sharron was great!
Sharron was great! I didn't realize there would be 3 other big dogs there, and my dog didn't handle that too will at first, but Sharron made sure he did well.
Sharron is awesome! She is very accommodating when Toby stays over. She makes sure my lemon beagle is well taken care of. Toby always has a blast whenever he gets a chance to hang out at Sharron's place. Sharron always sent me photos ensuring Toby was doing well. The best part Toby always comes home happy and exhausted. I'll definitely be booking Sharron again!

Sharron was great for our dogs. We first had a meet and greet and the dogs loved it at her home. Her yard is secure and the neighborhood has great walking trails for the dogs. When we were away, Sharron sent us email updates with photos showing us how comfortable the dogs were in her care. When we returned from vacation, Sharron was really flexible with our pick up time so we picked up the dogs in the early evening right after returning from the airport. Sharron even took the time to replenish our cooked chicken mixture that we had brought to her for our dogs and she was thoughtful enough to have a supply for us to return home with so that we could feed our dogs the mixture in the morning without worrying about cooking chicken for our pooches.

We will definitely use Sharron again for our dog sitting needs.

Sharron is great! Scarlett came home happy and exhausted.
Our dog will definitely be going on vacay again soon with Sharon!
Our darling Great Pyranees puppy, Daisy was so eager to hop into our car each morning to play another day wirh Sharon and her furry friends. Sharon and her family cared for Daisy like she was theirs.

We will be traveling on and off, and it is fantastic knowing Sharon is available to help support our little fuzzy monster.

I'm so grateful for my Charlie's weekend with Sharron. He got along well with her two pups, who were very well-trained. He is usually shy and submissive, but he was having so much fun exploring ... He almost didn't notice that I had left! Sharron was kind and reassuring. It was nice to have time away traveling with my husband knowing that my pup was in a loving and attentive environment. I'm very pleased with my experience and I'll look forward to working with Sharron again soon.

Sharron is a talented dog caretaker. She watched both our dogs for almost a week. One of my dogs has a history of nervousness when meeting other dogs for the first time. This didn't happen with Sharron. She walked them both regularly and they were quickly very comfortable in their temporary quarters. Sharron is kind and conscientious. We received emails with photos on a regular basis. I feel very lucky that she was available to watch our two dogs. We have already made arrangements for Boo and Jenny to stay with her again!!!!

Sharron is a most wonderful and attentive dog sitter for my Nika. She has a lovely calm demeanor and her dogs Brody and Elvis were perfect playmates for my little girl. It was comforting to see the pictures she sent of Nika, and read her updates on how Nika was doing. I would highly recommend Sharron!

Sharon and DogVacay were WONDERFUL! We needed someone last minute and Sharon came to our rescue. I had never used DogVacay before but was very pleased with their help - had internet issues and couldn't connect so I phoned them. The minute we met Sharon we knew Jazzy was going to be in good hands. Sharon has a very loving, caring demeanor, and has obviously had lots of experience with animals. She was very in tune to the dogs' personalities in her care and was very careful of introducing Jazz to them. All 50 pounds of Jazz ended up snuggling with her on her sofa. She sent us several pictures and gave us a full report of Jazzy's interaction with the other dogs. I especially liked the one of Jazz asleep on the sofa covered with a dog bone blanket! Her house was spotless. I know Jazz has found a new " home away from home"!

Two weeks prior to my scheduled trip to Colombia, my sitter bailed on me and I could find no one else that felt comfortable dealing with a diabetic dog. Also it was over the Christmas holiday, making it even more difficult to find someone. But Sharon came to the rescue and gave my Beni the personal care and attention that he required. Her home and yards were quite lovely and Sharon along with her family immediately put me at ease. Meeting Brody and Elvis, the furry members of the family, was also a big help in regards to my comfort level. It was apparent that they were happy dogs, obviously well cared for and well loved! I would not hesitate to recommend Sharon to others that are looking for a clean, safe and caring environment for there precious pups!
Thank you again for saving my trip to visit my son.
Debi and Beni

Our pup had a great time at Sharron's place. Sharron was quick to respond and very accomodating. The whole process was quick and easy. Our pup was well-taken care of and clearly very comfortable with her hosts including their dog. Overall great experience.

Sharron was a very accommodating host and we will definitely be requesting reservations with her in the future. A couple days prior to the reservation, one of our dogs was bitten at the park and Sharron tended to her as per the vet's instructions during the stay. My car even broke down in front of their house and they allowed me to leave it there until I got back since I needed to catch a flight. She and her husband have a great yard with high fences and friendly pups. It was definitely worth the drive from Monterrey to leave our pups in her loving care.

My yellow lab stayed with Sharron for 2 amazing weeks. Her house is perfect for dogs of any size - great size yard/house and perfect trails/neighborhoods to take them for a walk. Sharron has the perfect demeanor for animals and took on Kota as if he was her own pet. I was able to go away on vacation and completely relax knowing my pup was in great hands. When I arrived to pick him up, I could feel the genuine love that he was given while I was away. Next time I plan a vacation, I'll be calling Sharron.

Sharron was very responsive and able to accommodate my dogs last minute on a holiday weekend! Her dog, Brody, is super cute and got along well with my two dogs. She made sure my dogs were comfortable, sent pictures and gave me an update on their activity level/how much they ate when I picked them up. If I'm ever in the area again, I would definitely have Sharron watch my dogs again.
