About Sherry

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a husband and wife team who work at home and have been with DogVacay since 2012. We are located off of highway 80 off of Antelope exit in Citrus Heights very close to Roseville and Granite Bay.

During the week there will always be one of us home with your pup. On the weekend we may go out for a few hours and your pup will be kept indoors with our dog during that time. NEVER left outside by themselves. Your dog becomes our dog while you are away.

Front and backyard are fully fenced. Nearby walking trails for our furry friends to explore and burn some energy.

Your pup will be able to relax indoors, cage free, in a cool air conditioned, smoke free home. We try and keep a calm environment to ensure your furry friend is happy to come back next time you need to go out of town.

PLEASE NOTE: Your pet MUST be child, cat, and 1 female dog friendly. Our dog is submissive and has no issues with people or other dogs.

Our house is tri-level with lots of stairs. We may not be suitable for pups with any leg injuries because of that.

Updates are provided to you via email or text messages so you can relax and know your loved one is having fun.

We look forward to meeting you.

Sherry is so wonderful with our baby, Nugget. She send adorable photos of him having fun and even gave him medicine. She's extremely flexible and our dog loves seeing her and being with her family.
Zoe was with Sherry for three weeks and did great. They take such good care of my girl and update her stay throughout. We love this family for Zoe.
I've known Sherry practically my entire life so when I found out that she now dog sits on the side, it was great news. W have a 10 month old Boxer male and a 7 year old Bichon/Shih Tzu mix female. Two totally different dogs but also inseparable. We went away to Disneyland for 5 days and Sherry watched both dogs for us. Having our pups be in a home where they're loved and taken care of is such a stress relief when you're so far away. Sherry sent us updates via text with pics and videos and even took them to the dog park to run around (which is very important for our Boxer puppy with all of his energy). Not once did we worry about either dog while we were gone and that's such a great thing to be able to say. Much better than taking them to Petsmart where unless you pay extra for play time, they're locked in a kennel for most of the day. Upon picking them up, they both seemed happy and not stressed out at all. We will definitely use Sherry in the future for anytime our pups need a place to stay.
We had to take a day trip a few hours away and we couldn't bring Rufus with us. He didn't mind because he got to have a fun play date with Sherry and Fiona. As always he was all wags and kisses when we came to pick him up.
Sherry is an amazing host! She treats my dog, Lucy, as her own, and sends me pictures and text updates frequently. Highly recommend!!
Hobbes ran up to the front door and was very happy to see Sherry. He had a great time running around in her backyard and was pooped after we picked him up.
Receiving pictures and texts with updates makes my day. Blue does not seem to want to come home after staying at Sherry's. Thank you for loving my dog!
Sherry made special arrangements to take Blue earlier than expected to meet my schedule. Sherry, you made my out of town plans work! Thank you!
Sherry and her family were wonderful with during my business trip. I received updates via text and it was clear Blue was very comfortable in his surroundings. Thank you Sherry!
As always we love leaving our pup with Sherry. He comes home happy and tired (from playing). We have left him with her many times now and it is like his second home :)
Sherry watched our 7 yr old labradoodle, Sammy, for 12 days. She was awesome. For the first time ever, Sammy was not frantic and panting when I picked him up. He looked right at home. He was clearly very well cared for while we were gone. Sherry was kind enough to send me pictures of our pooch while we were on our vacation that showed him doing all the things he loves doing. We are so happy and grateful that we have found Sherry
Sherry and her family were wonderful! We definitley will use her again for our two dogs. Sherry sent us pictures everyday with a message which we really appreciated. She took care of them for 2 weeks. She has plenty of room for dogs to run about and we know they were given lots of attention and love. We highly recommend her services to anyone who really cares about their dogs!
Sherry and her fam are the best! I take my two dogs over there frequently, and they are always happy to be there. She sends pics and updates, and noticed when one of my dogs was acting strangely and sure enough the vet found an infection. I know my fur babies are well loved and cared for when I'm out of town at Sherry's house, and yours will be too.
Another great experience for our pups, with a warm and caring family to love on them when we were away. Thanks Sherry and family!
This was our first time, in 5 years, leaving our 2 doodles with someone else other than family. We are very protective of our guys, but we didn’t have to worry about anything. Sherry and her family were fantastic. Fiona is a great dog & Boo the cat is awesome (I think he was a dog in his prior life). We can only highly recommend Sherry. Fred & Barney are looking forward to staying with Sherry again. Thanks for all the snuggling :-)
Sherry and her family gave Rufus a week of joy, love and friendship. Thanks!!
AWESOME!!! This was our very first experience with DogVacay and Sherry was fantastic. We are a little protective of our boys, but needed an emergency overnight sitter. Sherry and her family took great care of our dogs. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She sent us picture updates and responded to us immediately when we texted her. We will definitely be using her again.
As usual, Sherry and her family took great care of our baby... He loves them, and is always completely happy when he comes home... we have used Sherry and her family several times, and I completely trust them with our pup! Great family, and we will using them again and again... Thank you!
My chihuahua is elderly and is on heart Medicine. She did great at Sherry's! Sherry indicated Lori climbedinto bed with them which says a great deal about her comfort level.
My other dog is younger and always has a good time where ever she is- as long as balls a can be found!
I really appreciated the notes and pictures I received during my time away. I am very pleased how the weekend turned out!
Sherry and her family treat my dog like he is part of their family. My dog happily trots up her walkway when he gets to go there and enjoys his time with them. I feel total trust that my dog is well taken care of in their care. Sherry texted me photos of our dog in various situations (often snuggling on the couch with her son) and it makes me smile.
Sherry and her family are the best dog "Vacay" sitters ever.
This was Issi's second stay with Sherry and we will definitely use her again. We love what wonderful care she takes of our dog. She sends several pictures throughout the week of Issi. We never worry about Issi when she is with Sherry. Give Sherry a try, you won't be disappointed.
She is just so kind. She sent me several pictures, and my dog was actually smiling. I am so grateful to have her family allow my dog (my child) into her home. This is a wonderful resource and I tell everyone I know DogVacay.
This was Issi's second stay with Sherry and we feel very comfortable leaving her there. Sherry sends us several pictures while we are gone and takes excellent care of Issi. We are so happy we found Sherry on DogVacay and highly recommend her.
We love Sherry. Zoe has a great time.
We love Sherry. Our dog Zoe jumps all over her and kisses her when she sees her. She plays with there little boy. ???? she is happy to be there.
We are very pleased with Toby's stay with Sherry and her family. Toby was not overly excited to see me so that tells me he had a great time with a lot of attention! I am very excited to have found Sherry!
She will be a very important person in Toby's life.
Sherry and family were great! Shadow and I immediately felt at ease when we met them. They took great care of Shadow. From there pictures I received during his stay, it was clear Shadow was having a blast. I would definitely bring Shadow back to them for future vacations.
Sherry takes great care of our dogs - they love going to her house and we appreciate that they are so well loved while we are away. Highly recommend!
We had such a great experience with leaving our dog June with Sherry. We felt very comfortable during June's stay as we were sent updates/pictures a couple times a day. This was our first time leaving our dog with someone on dogvacay and we would leave June with Sherry again with no hesitation. Thanks for all the help!!
Sherry is great with my Zoe.. I always receive feedback when she is with her. Zoe ran into the house when I dropped her off.
Sherry was just wonderful. Nikki is not a fan of change in her routine, yet Sherry tuned right in and had Nikki in her lap in short order. The daily photos and notes helped me to relax during our week away. Sherry went the extra mile and hand fed Nikki when necessary. I wholeheartedly recommend her and her Happy Tails. Sherry even kept Nikki for a few hours on two days prior to our leaving her so that Nikki would be familiar with the house and routine before we left her for the week.
Sherry took such great care of Rufus for the day. Fiona and Rufus played in the yard, went for a walk and were both quite tired at the end of the day. Rufus had such a terrific time he started to walk back into the house when it was time to leave :-)
Upon arrival to Sherry's home Blue remembered her from the meet & greet the week prior. He could not wait to leave me and launch into her care. What a warm feeling that gave me :)
Honestly, he has never done that, ever.
It was clear to me my pup was well taken care of, non-stressed and extremely happy in Sherry's care. I feel very fortunate to have found such a wonderful family to care for my baby when I am away. Thank you to the entire Jennings family.
This was the second time my 2 kiddos have stayed with Sherry. The first time was about 4 months ago. As soon as we arrived the second time my dogs recognized the house and got excited so I know they are well loved while we are away. Sherry send pictures daily and they look like they are not missing me much. She is the only Dogvacay host I have used but if she is not available in the future to match my away time I might just change my plans so they can stay with her. Thank you thank you thank you!
Our Daisy has stayed with Sherry a few time and has always come home tuckered out. She loves being there. Sherry and her family are so good with the dogs, I never want to take Daisy anywhere else.
Sherry and my dog Jade did great together. While Jade was delighted to be going home and to see me, she did not have an excited so much she could not calm down reaction. This tells me she enjoyed her time at Sherrys. I plan on using Sherry again in the future.
This service is very easy to set-up and it was great to have a meet-and-greet before we left our dog with Sherry. He had a great time and recieving the pic's and video updates were really appreciated. This was sooooo much better then leaving our dog with a kennel because he recieved 24/7 personnal care and attention. He also had a blast with Sherry's own dog and cat to play with while he was on his Dog Vacay!!!
Zoe seemed do well by the Pics we received from Sherry. She was getting along with the other dogs. The feedback was good.
I am new to the area and have no family or friends or leave my dogs when I go out of town. I have a 5 y/o Samoyed Husky mix who is very energetic and a tiny 7 y/o Mini schnauzer who loves to cuddle and would rather die than stay at a kennel. I search on Dogvacay and found Sherry. I was a little nervous specially with my little one but Sherry was extremely nice and I could tell she was going to be great to my girls. My plane as not leaving till midnight the day I drop them off and Sherry knew I was worried so the first day she sent me extra pictures of them with her family and I was able to leave more comfortable knowing they were ok. Each day Sherry texted me a few pictures. I was out of the country but Sherry had an iPhone so iMessages were delivered at no extra charge for both of us. Made it extra easy. When I picked them up, my little one was following Sherry around, kinda ignoring me. It was painful hahaha but I was happy because that meant she was nice to them. My girls will be returining with Sherry for our next trip in a couple of months!!!
This was our first time using Dog Vacay and leaving our pup with someone we didn't know...Sherry and her family took awesome care of our dog, and he was completely happy to be there, and very happy when we picked him up! We were 100% plus pleased with the care that Sherry gave our dog, loved the text/photo updates, and definitely recommend Sherry as a dog sitter! We will be using her again for sure!!!
Sherry and her family are wonderful. We felt really good about leaving our 2 dogs there. She sent pictures and videos and said she'd love to have them back. I recommend Sherry 100%!!!!
We were apprehensive leaving our dog with a "stranger" as we have always boarded at an expensive "open" kennel but when the kennel was booked, we found Sherry J and we are so happy it worked out the way it did! Our dog Lucy had a great time and Sherry did too we think:). Sherry loves dogs, you can tell by the way she treated ours. We will most certainly be back!
This was our first experience with DogVacay and we couldn't be happier with the care that our dog received in Sherry's home. Sherry sent us pictures everyday and it was obvious that Issi felt very much at home there. We will definitely call on Sherry for our next vacation.
Sherry and her son made us felt fully comfortable leaving our dog last June. During the drop off, amazingly, our dog just went straight to her home without looking back. She sent photos (1 each day) and we really appreciated it. We remember how lively our pet was during pick up. She surely had a nice experience!
Great host. Very prompt replies. My dog always returns happy and healthy.
Our dog stayed with Sherry and her family for one month and was very well taken care of. I loved all the picture texts we got showing us how much fun our dog was having. If we ever need someone to watch our dog again, I will use Sherry! Thanks!
Sherry and her family took great care of our 9 year old yellow lab, Lucy. I felt confident that she would be loved and treated like one of their family - which is just what we want when we have to leave her behind. Lucy loved swimming in their pool. We are already planning Lucy's next vacay at Sherry's!
Sherry and her family welcomed Hoss into their home and treated him like one of their own. The daily updates and pictures were just what I needed to help ease my anxiety of leaving my 5 1/2 month old Golden Retriever. He didn't want to leave when we picked him up after being at their place for 11 days. Thank you for taking such great care of our "little" guy! He will definitely be back for more fun!
Wow! The best boarding experience we have ever had! Sherry and her family are dogs loving family. They took great care of our dog. During our vacation, our dog had ear infection. Sherry called/texted us for a vet visit permission. With green light from us, she took our dog to the vet and our dog received great care throughout the medication duration needed. Sherry is highly recommended for dog boarding!
Sherry and her family were the perfect fit for our dog during our two week vacation. Her dog, Fiona, was a great companion and her family kept us informed of his activities while we were away. Her family is active outdoors which we appreciated too. She was very accommodating to our drop off and pick up times. We would recommend Sherry to a friend and Sunny would stay with her again when relatives are not available to sit him.
We made a last minute reservation for a family emergency and Sherry was very helpful. Leaving Daisy with someone we trusted was a huge relief to us.
Sherry did a great job with Daisy as always. She really loves having her and sends me updates all the time. I know Daisy loves being at her place. Maybe even more than at home.
Our Daisy had such a great time at Sherry's I don't think she wants to come home. So much better than being cooped up in kennel all day. She sent pictures and texts that were awesome and I knew Daisy was in good hands. I highly recommend Sherry.
My dog had a great visit with Sherry and her family. They have a nice setup, large fully fenced front and back yards, good neighborhood for walks and very dog-friendly house! Best of all they clearly love dogs and enjoy visitors. I feel like my dog is in good hands hands here and we'll be back!
Violet always has such a good time when Sherry and family take care of her. I highly recommend Sherry for dog care.
My dog Violet had a great time at Sherry's. They took very good care of her. It's nice to know that your dog will be cared for 24/7. I highly recommend using Sherry.
This is a sweet family. Their commitment to 24-hour coverage is very reassuring. When I took the kid to stay, after a short visit out front, she headed inside and never looked back. She is very happy when I pick her up. No anxiety. Like I never left. 5 stars!
What a lovely family and home. So gracious and understanding about my needs for my dog. Felt relieved and grateful to find this network. So lucky to have found Sherry and her family. Thank you.
