About Sheryl

We are a family with 2 active and fun little boys. We will be able to give your pets lots of attention and love while you are out of town. We love dogs and this will help our kids love dogs too! We have a large fenced in yard and large field behind our house for long walks. I also enjoy jogging, and if your dog is good on a leash and you would like, I can take your dog jogging with me. We also enjoy hiking and, with your permission, can take dogs (on leash) hiking with us.

During the workweek, we are gone daily for work. Your dogs will have unlimited access to our house (with food and water) and to our fenced in yard. We are home every evening and all weekend.

We owned dogs for many years but they passed away. We are waiting for another year or two before we get more dogs of our own. We love caring for dogs and having the dogs around our kids is a great experience for both of them! We look forward to being able to take great care of your dogs!

Excellent dog sitters. They watched mine over the holidays, which I thought was outstanding.
Best ever!
We are very thankful for Sheryl for watching our Ethel, she loves going to visit!
Family took in my two dogs on short notice for one night. Very good with the animals and very accommodating. I would definitely book with them again!
Will definitely book with this host again. Very friendly and even sent a video of Tucker playing with her dog during Tucker's stay. Very pet friendly home, no comparison to a normal kennel where he would have been caged all day.
Sheryl and her family were welcoming and wonderful as always! We always know our dogs are in great hands at Sheryl's, and we love the pictures and updates they send. (Especially the one of our pups with their new buddies!). Thanks again!
Sheryl was great to work with! She responded really quickly and sent me pictures of our furry family member while we were gone which was nice to see. The best part was with us being tired from being gone, so was the dog! Exhausted! We will certainly use her again and it is nice to know that we have someone we can count on that is close by.

Sheryl and her family were awesome! Our dog loved her and the family and we have a video and pictures that she sent to prove it! We will definitely be using Sheryl again!
Sheryl was completely Pawesome! She's very loving and kind with your precious pooch and is so gracious and friendly with the humans! thanks Sheryl!
Sheryl was great- sweet with our pup and very patient and accommodating. Thanks Sheryl!
We were very happy with Sheryl. Felt very confortable leaving our Renee with her, she was in good hands, will surely use her again! Thank You !!
Great experience. Our first time boarding our dogs. The dogs got along fine with Sheryl's new puppy.
Sheryl was very friendly down to earth. She welcomed Murphy in right away. Her home was very nice and clean and I felt super comfortable leaving him there. If she excepts I would definitely use Sheryl again.
Good neighborhood, nice house, nice people, and lots of photo updates!
Sheryl was great with my 2 Saint Bernards. It was my first time using a pet sitter and she made me feel at ease. I highly recommend her and would book a reservation again.
We've been boarding Allie with Sheryl for a couple of years now. Sheryl has been a great sitter, and you can tell that Allie has enjoyed being with her family!
Nellie had a great time with Sheryl and her family. Sheryl sent me pictures and texts to keep me up to date on how Nellie was doing which was very nice.
Sheyrl and her family did a great job watching my German Shepherd. He adapted well and received plenty of love and attention. We will definitely be returning!
Sheryl and family were perfect for our "girls". We will definitely request Sheryl again.
Happy repeat customers once again! We know our pups were happy and well taken care of. Thanks again!
Sheryl is great with our dog Quigley. He has some food allergies and is very conscientious about what he eats. Quigley gets excited to go to her house and starts jumping around in the car when I get close to it. I would highly recommend her for watching your dog.

Daisy was well cared for. This is the first time we had left her anywhere. I would use Sheryl again.
Sheryl is awesome. She always takes such great care of Stella and Stella comes home tired.
2nd visit was as warm and welcoming as the first!
Sheryl and family were accommodating and practically last minute watched my pup for a day of boarding. Sheryl sent a couple pictures and also graciously mailed his bowls that were forgotten. He had a bed to sleep on and a yard to play in. They do have two small children, so make sure your dogs is good with children.

Very easy experience. My dogs seemed very happy and well cared for. Sheryl was quick and fast with communication.
The dogs must have had a great time at Sheryl's because when I went to pick them up they didn't want to leave! Thanks for taking great care of our dogs.
Stella had a lot of fun with Sheryl and her family. They were very accommodating with drop off and pick up times. Sheryl made Stella feel comfortable right away. She also sent me daily updates and pictures, which made feel better while I was away. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Shasta and Mack had a great time with Sheryl. They were very well taken care of and we had no worries.
Our stay with Sheryl and her husband was great. We have never left our dogs alone with anyone but family so this was a new experience for us. Our dogs returned to us very tired! They seemed to have a great time. It helped that she sent two photos during our three day trip! We had to drop our dogs off at 545am which was no problem since we wanted to hit the road early for our trip. They were very flexible with times to pick up our dogs as well. We had a wonderful experience with them!

Sheryl and her family were incredibly accommodating. I had no worries leaving Lily with them. Lily is usually a little skittish of people, but she went right up to Sheryl and acted as if I wasn't even there.
sheryl's communication was fantastic, both in planning a meet and greet, arranging for pickup and drop off, and letting me know how my beloved pup was doing during my absence. after hearing he had settled in i stopped worrying about him and instead just enjoyed getting updates on his activities. i know he was well looked after while i was gone and with an upcoming long trip i have sheryl lined up for, i know he will be happy and not miss me! :)

We were very happy that our very shy dog felt at home with Sheryl and her family. Our dog normally doesn't like small children, but after one night she chose one of the kid's room to sleep in! That really shows us that she was treated very well and connected in a short time. We will definitely use Sheryl and family the next time we travel!

Stanley was more than well taken care of. I am not sure he wanted to leave! If you have a dog and want a loving family Sheryl is the one! Will definitely use her again.
This family was great. Reilly spent a few days with them and had a great time. He even seemed to have adopted them into our family.
Goomba seemed to have a good time. He was nervous for the meet and greet but when I dropped him off for the stay he was wagging his tail like crazy immediately. As long as I book in advance before anyone else Sheryl is happy to decline other dogs since Goomba has some dog aggression and prefers to be the only dog. I got a few photos and a message while I was gone saying he was doing great. I was worried that my flight got in at 8 pm so I wanted to pick Goomba up late but she said that was fine and her husband would be awake. To be honest I think Goomba was happy to see me, but then sad to leave their house. It kind of hurt my feelings. I'll just pretend he was tired from running around in the yard all day.

Already booked Goomba's next stay with her.

Sheryl provided a nice environment for Zoey. We would definitely use her again. Thanks!
From the first meet & greet request sent to the pick up after our dogs' first stay with Sheryl and Scott, we could not have been more pleased with our first DogVacay experience! Sheryl was very quick to respond and accommodating with answering all our questions, as we had never left our dogs with anyone other than family before. She made sure we were comfortable with where the dogs would be staying and that they weren't afraid to deal with any special requests, such as medications, etc.

The drop off for our vacation went very smoothly and Sheryl made sure to send photo updates while we were away. We returned to very happy pups after 7 nights and plan to book a return visit with La Vida Doggie soon!

Thanks again!

Dax had another wonderful visit with Sheryl, she's outdone herself once again. It was so nice that the whole family welcomed Dax when we arrived! She helped finish out a medical prescription and was so diligent...she wrote out when she administered the meds. I couldn't feel better about leaving him with Sheryl and her family!

Dogs seemed to really enjoy their stay and Sheryl was wonderful about sending photos of them throughout their stay. Will definitely be taking them back to her and her family.
Shasta and Mack had a great time and would love to come back again. Thanks for the great pics and for taking such good care of our kids for us. Also, thank you for being so flexible with our schedule change.
This was our second time sending our pups to Sheryl. We feel very comfortable leaving them in her care. I loved the pictures she sent throughout the week! We will be using her services again.
Lovely family and lovely home, Alastor was well-taken care of and nice and tired when he came back to me :)
Lilly had a great time on her extended vacation with Sheryl. She had easy access to go outside and play, and even though Lilly is a picky eater Sheryl was able to get her to eat throughout her stay as well! We received regular photo updates which brought us peace of mind while we were on our own vacation.

Lilly even got an opportunity to meet some new dog friends while on her dogvacay, and it seemed like she had a fun time with them.

We would definitely use Sheryl and her family to watch Lilly again!

We have two energetic Boxers and have always put them in a kennel when we leave. This was our first time leaving them in someone else's house and they seemed to have a great time! Sheryl was accommodating and her family seems to really love dogs. We will probably have our pups stay with her again!

This is the first time we have ever looked into kenneling our dog. She is 5 years old and has spent every day in our home with our family. I just couldn't think of putting her in a cage along side many other caged dogs. We found dogvacay and I was very thankful. Sheryl invited us to come by for a visit prior to our trip so our dog could get to know where she would be spending a few days. Maddie seemed perfectly happy there. Sheryl listened closely as I shared Maddie's habits etc. After our 5 day trip we picked her up and she was just like always, happy and easy going. I felt very good leaving our beloved doggie with a family who treated her like their own while we were gone.

We never worry about our two girls while they're at their home away from home. As always, thanks for taking such great care of our girls!
Sheryl is great. When we went to pick up Bo, he was laying in a chair in the living room very relaxed and content - didn't even notice we had driven up. He comes home happy - not stressed out as he gets at kennel. I would recommend Sheryl to anyone.

Sheryl is great. We are so happy we found her. She is very relaxed and accomodating and Bo really likes going there. When we picked him up he was lying on a nice big chair content as could be. When we have picked him up from boarding kennels in the past he has always been nervous and jumpy for a day or two. When Bo stays at Sheryl's he comes back home happy and relaxed. I would recommend Sheryl to everyone!

Sheryl was amazing once again! I had to change my dates a couple different times and she was helpful and flexible. Dax has a wonderful time visiting with her and her family. I love the photos that she sends, it makes me know that Dax is happy and healthy!

Whole experience was great. Sheryl was laid back, friendly, and was quick to respond to reservation and any other questions we may have had. Bo seemed happy when we picked him up and we liked the fact that he could go in and out of the house to the yard at will. We will definetly take Bo again.

Sheryl was a wonderful host for my dog Dax. This was my first "dog vacay" so I was a nervous mom. Sheryl kept in touch and sent me photos of Dax so I knew he was comfortable and happy. She spent time with him, got to know him and took him out for walks. He has a wonderful time! I will definitely use Sheryl again and am happy to recommend her to anyone and everyone!
Thank you so much Sheryl!
Robin & Dax

I had to find a place to board my 2 dogs over Christmas, and at the last minute. Sheryl was very accommodating and made everything easy. Frankie and Bruiser had a great time at her home, and I had peace of mind!
Sheryl did an excellent job watching our dog while we went on vacation over Christmas break. She sent us updates and photos daily to let us know how Luna was doing. I'd happily recommend her to anyone who needs a loving home for their dog while they are away!

Sheryl was wonderful! We had a last-minute trip with changing circumstances and Sheryl was very understanding, flexible, and quick to respond to questions. Our dog was happy and tired when he came home. I highly recommend Sheryl as a host.
This was our second time using Sheryl and her family as a dog sitter (both times being holidays) and we were very satisfied with how she did with Blizzard. She sent us daily photos, and we picked her up extremely tired. She was very accommodating in pick up/drop off times (even let us drop her off at 6 AM the second time because we wanted to be on the road for Thanksgiving!). I know that Blizzard can be a handful sometimes, but I'm very happy with how she was able to take care of her. I would definitely use her again, and would recommend her to anybody.

I felt so comfortable leaving my two puppies with Sheryl after our meet and greet; we felt very fortunate to find such a wonderful host to keep our babies while we were away!
Sheryl did a very good job with my dog. She kept me up to date during Missy's stay, and provided 2 kinds of medicine for my dog. There was another dog staying with Sheryl at the time of Missy's stay, and so Missy had a playmate, which was great!

Sheryl has a nice yard, and that isn't something Missy normally has, so I am sure she enjoyed that.

Sheryl was great with Quigley. He felt at home as soon as I dropped him off. She sent pictures which I enjoyed seeing. She played with him and learned his personality. I would definetly use her again. Thanks Sheryl
Sheryl and Scott were amazing to work with. Duncan got so much love and attention- he came home happy and tuckered out- a sign of a truly good dog vacay! Thank you!
Sheryl, Scott, and their boys were FANTASTIC hosts for our Boston Terriers! Lots of play time, attention, and snuggling for them both. It was pretty obvious from the way the dogs were interacting with them on our return that they got nothing but love and affection during their week-long stay. We would absolutely ask them to sit for us again!
