About Sharon

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Small paws.....big wags!
Since childhood, I have always had multiple pets around.....I think pets are part of what makes a house a home. Besides raising our kids, one of the fun things in my life is the variety of animals that we have had, from hedgehog to miniature donkey. We currently have one indoor cat, and a shih tzu/ havanese mix.
Since our grandchildren are either in California or Ohio, I would love to have some little four legged critters to love on, play with, and cuddle with.
I will care for a maximum of two guest dogs at a time who weigh 20 pounds or less. Our home has a fenced backyard which is bordered on two sides by a dedicated wetlands.
We are happy to have overnight guests as well as daytime visitors for play days.
My husband and I have flexible schedules, so most of the time at least one of us will be here. We will both be gone on Sunday mornings.
We look forward to getting to know you and your pet.

Sharon offers a warm, clean and quiet environment in her lovely home. Thanks so much for having Louie this past weekend.
Upon meeting Sharon I knew she was the perfect host for our dog Charlie. She takes small dogs only and has a very laid back personality. Just the right person to calm down an anxious dog. Her home is set up in a secure way so that there is no concern about your dog escaping through the front door. It was very comforting to get pictures and updates from Sharon about how my dog was doing. I have already recommended her to a friend and would not hesitate to leave my dog with her again.
Our Schipperke pup Bear had a wonderful time during his holiday stay with Sharon and her shih tzu Maya, as well as two other guests. We appreciated that Sharon boards dogs of the same size and they all got along well. Bear is high energy and Sharon is very calming, so it was a good match. Thank you Sharon!
Danger had a great time with Sharon and came back wagging his tail. She was great helping him warm up to the other dogs.
We love to send our pups to Sharon's house! It is truly like sending them to Grandma's house to play and be cuddled. Her backyard is amazing-perfect, safe place for the dogs to run and play. We'll definitely be sending them there again when we need to go out of town!
Sharon's house was a wonderful place for our 2 little puppies. They were well loved and cuddled and she even sent a few photos to me while I was gone, which I loved. It is truly like sending them off for a stay at grandma's house! And I love how they have a fun, safe backyard for the pups to play. We will definitely be sending them back when we need to go out of town.
Sharon is great!
I live outside of OR, I came here on business combined with a visit to UOO in Eugene to see my freshman son. I thought by bringing our family hound I would cheer up our homesick son.
What do I do with my dog while I'm doing business? I found Sharon and everything worked out beautifully. Family hound was very happy to spend 2 days with Sharon and her dogs.

My son was very happy to see our dog !!!

We will be back!


Sharon is amazing. I feel so at ease while on vacation knowing my dog is safe and happy.
This was our first time using Sharon for our little one. She did a great job and would definitely use her again. Very calm, quite, clean environment. Great play area for dogs to play in.
Our Murphy is very needy and prone to anxiety. Sharon made sure he was comfortable and gave us regular updates during our trip. A great environment with only small dogs. It's reassuring knowing your pet is being cared for in a home, and pampered pooches (like ours) get to sleep in an actual bed with Sharon if they need to. We could tell when we picked Murphy up that he had gotten plenty of attention.
We will definitely be using Sharon/Grandma's Dog House again!
This was the first time for us to leave our dog with a sitter. Sharon is wonderful! It was a great experience for both Lexi and us as protective dog parents! I can't wait to leave Lexi with Sharon again. I know that Lexi will be in the best possible place and I won't have to worry about her.
We are so happy to have found Sharon!!!
Sharon provided a great home for my pet while we were away. She was very compassionate and understanding of all of my senior dog's needs. She sent pictures and communicated with me every couple of days to let me know how things were going, I really appreciated that. She was always available and responsive to my questions along the way.
I found Sharon to be a very caring and compassionate dog sitter ! She was very flexible too . I would highly recommend her to anyone !
Sharon was flexible about our arrival time on a holiday with lots of last minute preoccupations. She was prompt with communications and caring for Ravi. We had confidence that she would be a kind and dependable caregiver for Ravi. He stayed the day and was in great spirits upon our return. I would happily return to Sharon's with Ravi.
Sharon did a fantastic job with taking care of my dog. She shows great care and passion. I would have her watch my dog again in a heartbeat.
Our dog has been going to Sharon's for the past few years. Whether a short overnight stay or a longer week stay, he always comes home happy. They give him a lot of love and attention, and he never hesitates to go back.
Max has stayed with Sharon more than a dozen times in the last two years. Some visits are one night, but many are over a week. I appreciate that she sends pictures and listens to our concerns. The dogs have the run of her family room, kitchen, and back yard, and get lots of affection and attention. She keeps the number of dogs to a minimum and I love that she only takes small dogs. Our minds are at ease when we leave on a trip.
Had a great experience with Sharon and the Dog Vacay experience. Sharon and her husband were very kind and accommodating when we had a little hiccup in our initial reservation. Now we feel secure in knowing there is a safe and welcoming home to take our little four legged loved one when we need it.
No update this time, but it was okay. We know our babies had fun! :-)
Sharon took such great care of our 2 dogs! she sent a fun picture and email on most days and our dogs were so happy. thank you so much!
Sharon was wonderful as usual. Max loves going to her.
As usual Sharon was awesome.
You can tell Sharon loves dogs and knew just how to help my dog feel at home.
Sharon is excellent. Max loves it there.
I feel extremely comfortable leaving my anxiety ridden Shih tzu with Sharon for overnight stays. The gates that Sharon has built-in her living room and kitchen area make me feel extremely confident that the dogs will be kept safe in the house if the door is accidentally left open. She also has a completely fenced in backyard which is a great luxury for the pup. She responds very quickly to emails and send photos of your fur baby every day. Such a sweet lady, and her husband is equally kind. I look forward to using her time and time again
Sharon accommodates McKenzie's needs really well. McKenzie comes home calm, with no signs of anxiety after time at her home. She seems very good with little pups and is responsive to my emails. I appreciate her service and have recommended her to a friend.
Excellent vacation... our pup really enjoyed herself. Sharon sent great pictures.
This was our first time with Sharon and she was wonderful! I have always worried about our animals while we are away - thinking that they feel abandoned. With the updates Sharon provided during our vacation, I knew that our dogs felt safe and content. Sharon's quiet demeanor put both my dogs at ease - she has a gentle soul. I will definitely use her again. Thank you!!!
Max always loves his stay at Grandma's Doggie House! Sharon does a great job caring for him and we enjoy our vacations so much more knowing he's having a wonderful time too!
Kona had a wonderful time at Sharon's house this week. I received pictures all week long of Kona playing with other dogs. Sharon is a very caring person and takes excellent care of dogs that she is boarding. I would highly recommend Sharon to care for your dogs anytime.
Sharon is a competent, caring caretaker. I leave my shih tsu, Max with her and am never disappointed. He seems happy when he goes to see Sharon and is the same when I pick him up.
Thank you for taking care of our pup. And thanks for the picture. We appreciate your service.
I am so pleased with Sharon's service. She is a caring person who obviously loves dogs. My Max seemed very content there. I feel very lucky to have found her.
Sharon is a really great dog caretaker. Maxx and Sassy enjoyed their stay at Grandma's Doggie House, and they missed Maya and Sharon already. :)

We're soooo glad we found Sharon in DogVacay. She never misses a daily update on how the dogs are doing, and she even sends us pictures!!!! Now we don't worry much about going on vacation because we have her to look after our babies.

Thanks Sharon.
Sharon did a great job in caring for our little Max while we were away! We couldn't be happier with the love and attention Max received. Sharon sent us daily updates and pictures to reassure us that Max was having a great time. We will definitely use her again!
Sharon was great!! She took great care of Zoe and worked with our crazy travel schedule. I would definitely use Sharon again. Mark
Max had a great stay with Sharon. He got plenty of love and run around time that he wasn't getting at the commercial boarding place we often used. If you want your dog to stay in a homey atmosphere with lots of attention, this is the place. He'll be going back.
This is our first time to leave our 'kids' to people we don't personally know.. at first (like every dog owners), we were really hesitant.. but upon meeting Sharon and Greg (her hubby) during our meet-and-greet, we knew that Maxx and Sassy will both be in a loving home.

We boarded our doggies with Sharon for 5-weeks. Sharon's constant updates were really comforting, knowing that both our kids were doing fine. She's sent us photos and she replied to our emails almost instantly. In their photos, we can tell that Maxx and Sassy were having a good time.. and they're properly groomed (we think that Sharon has been brushing their fur,.. Thanks Sharon!). When we picked them up, Sassy wouldn't want to go out the gate! =)

We HIGHLY recommend Sharon and Greg for your doggies' boarding needs! They are PAWSOME! =)
Sharon is very conscientious as a care giver. She even slept on the couch with the dogs their first night with her because they were crying. I would definately use Sharon again.
Having our dog to Sharon's house made his anxiety situation much better. This is a great place to leave puppies and know that they are being loved!
My husband and I debated about whether or not to leave a review for Sharon.

On the one hand, we would like to let everyone know how wonderful she was with our dog and that Sharon was exactly the person we were looking to find to care for her. Our dog, Momo, seemed very content to be staying with her.

On the other hand, we are afraid that if anyone else finds out how good she is, we will suddenly have lots of competition for her services.

Lucky for you, we decided to post. You really can't go wrong by using Sharon's services to care for your dog. We will definitely be using her services in the future.
Sharon did a fantastic job caring for my two dogs all week. She has a big fenced in back yard and a
nice set up inside her home for dogs. My dogs were happy and healthy when I picked them up. She sent me updates throughout the week with pictures of how they were doing when I was on vacation. I highly recommend Sharon to anyone needing a pet sitter. I will definitely use her dogsitting services again.
