About Sherry

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Here at Pet Palace I enjoy meeting new dogs. Each has their own spirit and personality and I enjoy getting to know them. Guest dogs will enjoy a warm, loving, safe, smoke-free home where they’re free to roam around. They can curl up on the couch or in a bed if that’s what they’re used to. I only host nice, non-aggressive dogs and I encourage them to play and get along.

I have a dog door and they can go out anytime they want. I have a large back yard with a 6' wood fence around it and a 5 foot iron fence around swimming pool. If your pet wants to lay around the pool that is fine, but if they want to swim that's even better.

A public park is within walking distance.

I do not work, so I or my son will be with your pet almost all the time. My children are grown adults.

Feel free to ask question on needs you want for your pets.

**I only accept dogs that are potty trained.

I will accept pups that are less than 14 months that are not spayed or neutered

Sherry did great with our two dogs over the week of xmas... will be using her again in the future.
Bonnie stayed with Sherry for two weeks while I was out of the country on vacation. Sherry had watched Bonnie a handful of times previously so I was happy knowing that Bonnie was going somewhere familiar for her extended stay. Throughout my trip Sherry sent me updates so I knew I didn't have to worry about Bonnie and could enjoy my vacation. Bonnie seemed to have enjoyed her vacation just as much as I did! Sherry is a great host and her house is becoming Bonnie's second home; she perks up everytime we pull onto Sherry's street! I will continue to have Sherry watch Bonnie anytime she can.

Sherry watched my dog Bonnie while I was away for a work trip. Bonnie had stayed with Sherry for a couple nights at a time previously so I expected things to go well and they did. Sherry sent lots of photos so I could see Bonnie was having a good time with the other dogs at the house. Bonnie was worn out after almost a full week with Sherry, which I took as a great sign! I will continue to have Sherry watch Bonnie whenever I can't.

Sherry watched my dog Bonnie for one night over Halloween. It wasn't Bonnie's first trip to Sherry's house and it won't be her last! Sherry sent a lot of photos during Bonnie's stay and it was obvious Bonnie was having a great time and was comfortable staying with Sherry.

Sherry is great. When she sends pic's, Harley always looks very happy and content. She always comes home a little more spoiled than she was before she went. I highly recommend Sherry
While visiting with family in Texas Sherry watched my pups. She came highly recommended and I can see why. She is great with dogs and even let them stay a bit later than they were supposed to. Thank you so much!
Zooey & Dublin had another great vacation at Sherry's house this weekend! They are excited to visit each time and love swimming during their vacay. Each time we come home, they are exhausted pups!
My dog, Bonnie, seemed to have a great stay at Sherry's this weekend. It was Bonnie's first stay at her house and she came home a tired a happy pup. Sherry sent a lot of photo updates throughout the stay so I know Bonnie was having a good time at her house. I will definitely have Sherry watch Bonnie again.

I am very happy that I stumbled upon Sherry's profile on Dog Vacay. We have dealt with many dog sitters in the past, and Sherry is our new favorite! It is hard to find a reliable sitter in the FW area for larger breed dogs (we have a 65 lbs lab mix and a 83 lbs golden). Even though we were only away for one day, she was kind enough to send us many picture updates of her playing fetch with the dogs both on land and in the water. Both pups are big water dogs, and she has a great pool in her backyard that the dogs can take a dip in whenever she is out there with them. Not only is she very active with the dogs (meaning hours of fetch time!), but you can tell that she understands dogs and their behaviors. She was very cautious to make sure that all the dogs got along during our meet and greet session, and she never takes too many dogs at the same time. Her knowledge and experience was very evident.

When we came to pick up our pups, they did not want to leave! That was a first for us! You could tell they got plenty of exercise over their stay because napped for quite a few hours when we got home.

We will definitely be using her again!

Sherry shares lots of photos of our dogs when they are with her and I can see that they are relaxed, happy and having a great time from their body language and relaxed expressions. I think Bear our Akita has fallen in love with Sadie, Sherry's lab puppy, as he was very very sad to leave her house. Sherry's home and yard are immaculate and she is very loving and kind with the dogs. Our dogs are our children and I am super fussy about who they stay with - I would recommend Sherry any time.

Katrina & Galaxy LOVE spending their days with Sherry. It's the highlight of their week! It's their home away from home!!!
They love her, and everything about her house.
They start whining when we turn into her neighborhood.
Galaxy shares kisses with Sherry ALL day!
I could never EVER get enough of the wonderful photos she sends of my furkids!
Sherry makes sure the needs of each dog is met to the fullest.

My furkids LOVE every moment they spend in Sherry's care!!! She is the BEST sitter on the planet! Many years from now I plan to still be using Sherry for dog sitting!
Thank You so much,
Sherry!!!

Zooey and Dublin love going on vacation to Sherry's house whenever we go out of town! There are no words to describe how much they love swimming and playing while they are there. They get excited when we pull up to the house and are still just as excited when I return to pick them up. Thank you Sherry for providing a wonderful experience for Zooey and Dublin every time we go out of town!

Sherry is wonderful and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a safe and fun environment for their pups! I am convinced our dogs enjoy their vacation more than we do sometimes! We look forward to using Sherry every time we go out of town. She is always reliable!

Sherry and her crew were fantastic. Nova (our black lab) had the best time swimming and playing with Sherry and the other dogs. Sherry took great care of Nova and even let her swim 3-4 hours a day! We had a great experience with Sherry and will not look anywhere else when we go out of town. Sherry truly loves dogs and you can tell from the moment you meet her. We knew Nova was in great hands. I think Nova had a better vacation than we did. Sherry is very kind and will take great care of your dog. She sent us a ton of photos every day just so we can see what Nova was up to. If your dog is not fond of the pool that is okay. Sherry has a gate around her pool and your dog will be fine. If you want your dog to learn to swim Sherry will be more than happy to help with that. This was a great experience for us and we truly appreciate Sherry and how she took care of Nova. We haven't just found a dog sitter but a friend.

My Bulldog Maggie loves Sherry so much, when I dropped her off today for day care, she wouldn't get out of the car (classic stubborn Bulldog) for me until Sherry came around the corner and said hi to her. She was so happy to see Sherry, she flew out of the car and wiggled her whole body while running to receive her pets. Sherry is her second Mama! We all love Sherry and don't know what we'd do without her, Sadie and Blue. Maggie is very attached to me and often cries and bays when I leave my house, even though my husband is home. But she never does that when I leave her with Sherry. She goes right back to her playtime!

Katrina & Galaxy LOVE going to Sherry's house! Doing daycare with Sherry has been a beneficial option for them to indulge in during the day! They have really strengthened their relationship with her. As for canine buddies, Sadie & Blue have become Best Friends with my furkids. They love having Sherry's company, and she works hard at making sure they are happy, and always pleased. Sherry's house is like their home away from home. Since they have started going to visit Sherry's they have become more physically fit! The size of her yard is self entertainment for them! They RUN, RUN, RUN, ALL day! But, before returning home each time I believe they get in some cuddle time too!!
The endless photos she is able to get of them always turn out awesome!
My babies are learning, and getting better at Sherry's pool all the time, as they are not natural water dogs. The younger girl, Galaxy, does frequent "head dunks". Katrina is an expert at snatching up the toys as they float to the edges of the pool!
Sherry's "Pet Palace of Fort Worth" is a PERFECT option for Daycare!
I am totally please with the results of leaving my dogs in Sherry's care.
Thank You Sherry for ALL the unconditional affection you give my furkids!

I give Sherri a ten star rating!!! I have a German shepherd(Katrina) and an Australian shepherd(Galaxy). They are both young, and full of energy. They can truly be a handful. They are both reserve with new people.
When they first met Sherri they were eager to approach her. Now They have been to her house three times, and readily greet her with butt wiggles(aussie) and tail wags! We have a goal for the future of them doing boarding, but we are working up to that time. For now they are doing daycare at her house twice a week.
They LOVE running the full length of her spacious yard with her dogs Blue & Sadie. Sadie is always full of energy, which helps wear out my wild furkids.
Katrina deals with some separation anxiety and has gotten over it while being in the carefree environment of Sherri's home.
I am that crazy dog mom that did not want to leave my furkids with just anyone. I immediately got a level of comfort with leaving my pooches in her care. Also, it truly helped having the constant updates and photos of how my babies were doing during the day. They come home tired, and fully content after spending their days with Sherri.
She has gone the extra mile with my kids, and is EXTREMELY patient with them. Sherri knows the way to their hearts!
She is everything I was looking for when trying out this site!

Thank You, Sherri for the love and affection you give my babies!

Oh, my doggies LOVE the cookies she carries in her pocket as well!

Sherry was awesome! She took so many pictures to keep us updated on how our dog Dusty was doing. Not sure if dogs can really smile or not, but he looked to have one on his face from ear to ear the whole time he was there. I would feel very comfortable leaving Dusty with Sherry again. She was very nice and asked us all kinds of questions about Dusty so that he would have a fun, comfortable time there. If you want to know that your dog is being loved and cared for while you are away, this is the place for you and your dog!!

Maggie just stayed with Sherry for four nights while I attended my family reunion in Ohio. I never once worried about her because Sherry sends happy photos every day. Sherry goes above and beyond as a pet sitter. Maggie is an English Bulldog, and they require more attention than other breeds. Sherry keeps her folds and tail clean and dry and makes sure she always has her life jacket on when going swimming. Maggie loves Sherry and her dogs so much, she whines and gets excited when we pull in, and she stares at her out the window when we leave. I need to take Maggie there at least once a week or she will get cranky!

Maggie loves going to Sherry's house for daycare. She loves going swimming and playing with Sadie and Blue. We are beyond blessed to have found her!
Sherry is awesome! She sent updates and pictures throughout the day, was prompt to respond, and our puppy Kinsler got along with her two dogs incredibly well. It was so nice finding someone who takes as good of care of our baby as we do! Kinsler looks forward to her play-days with Sherry in the future!

Sherry was the best. She sent pictures and videos of my dog Harley playing and swimming on a daily basis. Harley was well taken care of and was spoiled rotten. I will defiantly use her again, and highly recommend her.
Maggie has been to Sherry's house for doggie day care several times, but this was our first boarding (overnight) experience. I'm one of those dog owners who considers her dog a beloved child, so I was an emotional wreck leaving my sweet Maggie for four long days. But Sherry made it so incredibly easy!! She sent several videos and photos of Maggie playing with her puppy Sadie (Maggie's new best friend) and sweet Blue. She also sent photos of Maggie loving on Sherry and sleeping in her lap. I nearly cried tears of joy seeing those photos because it made me realize I could relax and enjoy myself without worry. Sherry even lets Maggie sleep with her in bed, which is a special treat for her at home. Maggie was in heaven for four days! Sherry also has no problem feeding Maggie her normal raw diet and keeping her folds and tail pocket clean and dry (necessary for Bulldogs). She's just AMAZING.

Overall, I finally found a pet sitter who treats dogs the way I treat dogs, and I could not be happier. I could go on and on! When we pull into Sherry's driveway and Maggie wiggles all over and then runs to her, that speaks volumes!

Dublin and Zooey spent their vacation with Sherry again this weekend while we went out of town. They absolutely love Sherry and her two dogs, Blue and Sadie. Dublin has become a professional swimmer with the help of Sherry and even Zooey took a quick dip in the pool. They love Sherry's house and didn't want to leave when I picked them up. They come home exhausted each time so I know they've enjoyed their weekend away from home with their new best friends. We can't wait to visit Sherry again the next time we go out of town! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable sitter.

Sherry deserves more than five stars! Maggie couldn't wait to get back to her house! Sherry met us outside and my dog RAN to her, wiggling all over, so happy to see her again. This is only our second visit, so that says a lot about how amazing she is with dogs.

Maggie was excited to play with Sadie the puppy and Blue again, too. Sherry let us go swimming before we left, so Maggie enjoyed a cool dip in the pool with me, which felt great for us both. Sherry is so inviting and kind, it's hard to find sitters like her, let alone people like her. I can see us becoming good friends.

I am a dog sitter on this site myself, and I'm very picky about who watches my baby. It took me awhile to find the perfect sitter for my sweet Bulldog, and I have definitely found her!

Sherry sent me videos and photos throughout the day, which really made me smile considering I was having a crappy day at work. Her son and his friend play with the dogs too, so Maggie gets constant attention. I just cannot say enough about Sherry, her son Kevin, Blue and Sadie. It's now Maggie's second home!

Sherry was absolutely wonderful with our two dogs, Zooey and Dublin. Everyday she sent us text updates with pictures and videos of the dogs. They loved swimming in her pool and were happy and healthy when we picked them up after a weekend stay. Sherry's two dogs, Blue and Sadie, were the sweetest and made great playmates for Zooey and Dublin. Sherry is amazing and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone trustworthy to look after your babies! We have already booked her for next weekend and the dogs are already looking forward to future visits with their new friends!

Sherry is amazing!! Her dogs are amazing too. I feel like I hit JACKPOT finding her on DogVacay. My Bulldog is very playful and I had trouble finding a sitter whose resident dogs would play a lot with Maggie. Sadie, her puppy, loves to play tug-of-war, so Maggie was in heaven immediately. Sherry also let me take Maggie into her pool to see if she likes swimming. She LOVED it.

Sherry's older son who lives there is amazing, too. He's super nice and great with the dogs also. Maggie immediately loved Sherry, which says a lot about her. Dogs can tell if someone is a dog lover!

Sherry sent me photos of Maggie having fun after I left. Maggie usually pouts for a long time after I leave, but she started playing again with Sadie soon after. Sherry also has a doggy door, so the pups can go outside whenever they want, but her pool is fully fenced in to protect them from falling in. Maggie doesn't have a doggie door at home, but Sadie and Blue taught her how to use it within minutes.

I could not be any happier with Sherry as our new "Nanny." Maggie truly feels like she's on a Vacation when she's with Sherry. My only concern is that she will book up too fast! I'd like to keep her all to myself! We will be back a lot!
