About cheryl

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have had dogs all my life and truly love them like children! I have a dog friendly house with one of my own, a mini Dachshund named Chichi. My girl loves being around other dogs. We have a large backyard to play ball in and we also go to the park in my neighborhood. My husband loves walking in the evening, so I have his help also. If you don't mind your dogs being spoiled, then this is the place for your babies. Also, I'm a semi-retired personal chef and make organic treats (if allowed) for the fur babies!

Also, I need to add there are different rates for different circumstances, such as puppy rates, dogs that are large, no matter the age, that do not mind basic commands, etc.

Cheryl was a great host for our two dogs over Thanksgiving! The dogs had a great time, and Cheryl was very flexible with us on our drop-off and pick-up times.
Cheryl was a great host. Our two fur babies had a blast. They were exhausted from all the good times daily.

She was kind enough to send pictures daily and in some instances more than once a day. Her home is very accommodating for the dogs. Additionally she was very patient. One of our fur babies choose to mark a spot on the wood floors. She was very patient cleaned up and advised loved him none the less.
We were very happy with the entire experience. Katie was well taken care of and loved on just like she is at home. Cheryl sent us updates and pictures daily which we really appreciated.
Happy was very relaxed the minute we arrived and seemed to enjoy her visit :) Cheryl was very responsive and pleasant. We will be using her again. Highly recommend!
This was my first time to use Chery and Dog Vacay, I had a very positive experience. Cheryl was very accommodating when it came to bringing and picking up JOCCO. Her house was very clean and she has a very nice fenced in yard. I especially liked that she would send me pictures and would let me know how JOCCO was doing.
Cheryl was an awesome host for our Asia. She takes care of her guests in a lovely home with a great back yard and lots and lots of individual care and attention. And Cheryl worked hard to be flexible to our needs and, more importantly, Asia's needs. We have a senior dog who has been dealing with cancer and she needed to take some medicines and to receive a lot of special care, which turned out to include cleaning up when she had accidents signaling the return of her illness during the time we were away. Cheryl was wonderful through it all, having great patience in working to communicate with us when we were intermittently on and off ship, and taking Asia to the vet at our request for testing so we could get a diagnosis and move forward with a new treatment plan as soon as we returned. I can't thank her enough and I definitely recommend her as a host for your dog, especially mature dogs.
This was our first time to use DogVacay and boy, did we hit the lottery with Cheryl. It was obvious that our pooch got the star treatment during his stay. He was happy, in good shape, and it appeared he had settled in very comfortably. We loved getting an update and a photo each evening. Thank you, Cheryl, for taking such good care of Ranger and making him a part of your family.
My puppy really seemed to enjoy his time at Cheryl's. She provided pictures and updates about him everyday which I very much appreciated since this was the first time leaving him. Would definitely recommend and use Cheryl again!
We did not have a good experience here and I admit it is partly our fault. We did not give ourselves enough time to schedule a meet-n-greet so our dogs were dropped off in a home they had never seen before with people and dogs they had never met. The low rating is more because we didn't get an update until almost 10 o'clock that evening. Using some unprofessional language we were informed one of our dogs had shown aggression with the other dogs earlier that day. I am disappointed we weren't informed sooner. Our dogs have not had problems like this with any other host. We picked up them up as soon we could and learned from our mistake.
Treated my pups like they were her own!
I am so happy to have found a sitter for my spoiled German Shepherd EMMA. She actually didn't seem to want to leave. I know now that I have a place for her when needed. Thanks Cheryl!!
Cheryl was great!! We have two big rescue dogs; one lacks 'social graces' a bit and the other fears new people. My babies seemed unhappy when we left them at a 'pet hotel' in the past, so we decided to try dogvacay and leave them at somebody's home. I feel so much better about leaving them with Cheryl than I did about our previous arrangement. The fearful dog warmed up quickly to her, she was patient when the other dog kept peeing on her floors, and I could tell from the daily pictures/updates she sent that they were doing well. We will definitely use Cheryl again when we travel!
Cheryl was great with our two large dogs. She even separated ger gouse because one of them was in heat. She is very flexible and the dogs seemed to have a great time.
Cheryl is the absolute best. She spoiled our dog Gracie rotten. Gracie had such a good time. She sent us pictures and keep us up-to-date on how she was doing. We were gone for a long time and she told me how much they were going to miss Gracie. After we got home, Gracie seemed so lonely and ready to go back. We felt so good having her stay this long time with Cheryl. We had used her before and had no problem leaving her for this amount of time. Gracie and her dog became best friends. Would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants a spoiled dog to come home to. Cheryl is so loving.
Cheryl is awesome! Lucy loved her stay. We loved the daily pictures and updates. We will definitely use Cheryl again!
We have a 3 year old Golden and a 7 month old Lab mix. Our Golden takes medication and is on a restricted diet due to allergies, and I was concerned about the puppy's activity level. She is very curious and gets bored easily. But Cheryl handled them both like a champ. The puppy didn't get into trouble and the Golden didn't eat anything he shouldn't have. Cheryl has a large play yard with plenty of room to run. After three days with Cheryl, both dogs came home pooped and happy! We were very pleased.
Cheryl took great care of our pet. She sent pictures everyday which gave me peace of mind and I could see he was happy. We will definitely use Cheryl again. She is very caring and really loves animals.
We loved taking our dog Bandit to Cheryl for a few hours. It was last minute and she made efforts to help us out!
We enjoyed getting to know her a little and appreciated her experience with different kinds of dogs including out Shih tzu.

We plan to visit again for a longer time frame!

I would recommend Cheryl to anyone. Jack was completely at ease staying with her for a week while I was on vacation. Cheryl kept me updated daily with text messages & pictures.
After being pampered for a week by Cheryl & her family I was afraid he would not want to come home!!!
Cheryl and her entire family were great! I would definitely leave my baby there again and would highly recommend her to others!
We were very fortunate to find Cheryl and have her watch our dog Kodee. Our dog has a special diet and takes medicine as well and Cheryl accommodated Kodee's needs. The photo's and updates let us know Kodee was in good hands. Thank you so much Cheryl!
I took my dog to Cheryl's for an overnight stay and all the next day. Cheryl is so loving and even let our dog sleep next to her along with her own dog. Our dog got along very well with her dog, which was a concern. Cheryl treated our dog Gracie just like her own. She even had to give Gracie 2 medications and she never hesitated. You can tell she really loves and cares for dogs. I feel very confident for her to keep Gracie later for a more extended stay. My only concern is if Gracie will want to come home from being so spoiled. Thank you Cheryl for taking care of Gracie.
Cheryl took really good care of our dog, Shelby. It's always tricky, b/c Shelby is scared of other dogs, and sometimes people. But Cheryl really understood Shelby's personality. Shelby was clearly comfortable and happy while we were gone. This was such a blessing to us. I plan to book with Cheryl the next time we are traveling.
I have a very anxious dog that does not like to be left alone. Spike had an amazing time. They took such good care of him and I spent my holiday week knowing that my sweet dog was in good hands. They even hand fed him when he was having trouble eating in the beginning. I loved getting photos and updates about him throughout the week. He was completely spoiled. I'm not sure he wanted to come home!! I will use Cheryl again in the future for sure. Also, Spike loved hanging out with Chi Chi.
Not only did I love Cheryl Bella had the best time! I will be using her again in the future! She would text and send me pictures while we were gone so I could see my furbaby. Cheryl and her family is an absolute joy.
Cheryl is super sweet and definitely a dog lover! Appreciated the loving care she gave my energetic pup while we had to be away. THANK YOU!
Lovely host! Thank you for spoiling my babies when we had to be away.
