About Cheryl

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am an avid animal lover and have a clean & perfect home & yard to care for your pet. There's lots of room to run and play in a safe environment. The dogs love to help themselves to all the different toys in the toy box. I have had dogs most of my life and plenty of love and affection to give them. At one point in my life I had 6 full grown labs and a litter of 12 puppies when I lived on a 7 acre avocado ranch. I have a true connection with animals, dog's can tell I'm a doglover and are drawn to me. We have a mutual love & affection for each other. Some of my friends call me The Dog Whisperer.

Cheryl was amazing. Our dog is very anxious and still a puppy filled with energy. Cheryl was wonderful with him and so patient. We got daily updates and pictures of our pup. Thanks so much Cheryl for your patience and love for dogs!!
Cheryl is terrific! She's absolutely great with dogs. Our Lily needs time to socialize with other dogs and Cheryl handled this brilliantly. It was so great to pick up our dog knowing she had a wonderful time and was so well taken care of. I would highly recommend Cheryl.
Cheryl was very friendly and patient with us and all our questions as this was the first time leaving our pup with someone else. We were kept up to date with plenty of pictures and comments on a regular basis during his two night stay. Our pup had a lovely time and made some new friends. Seeing the pictures made us feel at ease as he looked so happy with his new friends. Only downside is that he smelled of smoke when we picked him up.
Thank you, Cheryl, for taking such wonderful care of Louie, our chocolate lab. He immediately felt welcomed on arriving, and settled right in. So, we left for our day on the Rogue knowing he was in good hands. When we returned in the evening, it was clear that he had made himself right at home, and had great fun playing with your pups (and the sweet photos you posted confirmed it!).
My dog has severe anxiety. She hates other dogs... and humans. But somehow Cheryl made it possible. She was amazing, sent pictures and text messages.. it was the first time I didn't have to worry about her while I was away.
This was my first time using DogVacay. We have a 12 week old puppy, and I wasn't sure what to do with her during our brief vacation, since she is still potty-training. Cheryl was willing to take her on, and sent daily updates and pics on how she was doing. It was a peace-of-mind to see that our puppy, Greta, was doing well and in good hands.
We couldn't be happier with our experience with Cheryl. Our rescue dog is always afraid of being left places and we were more apprehensive than she was when we arrived. Once the door opened our dog ran straight in, grabbed a stuffed animal and jumped on the couch. She was very comfortable with Cheryl and we were able to enjoy our jet boat excursion.
Lizzie had a good time with Cheryl. She was loving and attentive and we appreciate her caring well for Lizzie! Thanks so much Cheryl!
Cheryl is a great doggie sitter. We got pictures during the day that showed Bentley was having a great time.
Cheryl was an awesome puppy sitter. We only needed her services for a few hours but she was very accommodating and went out of her way to find out everything she needed to know before we dropped our puppy off. She truly loves dogs and it shows. Highly recommended and will use her again in the future.
Cheryl was amazing! Stella dog had such a great time playing and staying with her. She was in top of sending and posting pictures of her and giving me descriptions of how she was doing. Cheryl was also very flexible with drop off and pick up since I had odd hour flights, she was receptive what I needed and of course to my dog :) I would most definitely let Stella vacation with Cheryl again!
Cheryl is the best - we use her often and recommend her highly!
Cheryl was amazing in every way; from the time of my initial contact with her to when I picked up my dog from a 2 week vacation in Europe. She obviously has a true passion and understanding of dogs! In addition, she was organized, flexible and communicative with me. She sent frequent updates and photos that assured me my dog was being taken care of. I can't thank Cheryl enough for helping me to feel confident about leaving my beloved pet with her! Thank you!
Cheryl seems like a really great host and even took our request somewhat late notice. I would have liked to see the dog's living quarters (given that 8 dogs stayed in an in law unit) and how our dog interacted with the other dogs, but with so many pets, you need a system, so she walked the dog out to us during pick up and had the other dogs penned up upon arrival.
My dog only stayed for 3 days, but Cheryl let me drop off and pick up at convenient times for me, and sent a ton of photos.
Charlie had another fun stay at Cheryl's- She is was literally doggy-smiling when I picked her up!
Cheryl was an amazing dog sitter. She had our active Border Collie for over two weeks and he was so happy there. Cheryl was a great communicator and sent pictures and a note about how he was doing daily. I would highly recommend Cheryl, it's obvious she is a huge dog lover and she is a highly competent pet sitter.
Cheryl was great- she took very good care of our new puppy- Allowed appropriate supervision with playing with the other big dogs- Was easy to communicate with and sent us multiple pictures of Charlie that set us at ease with leaving her for the first time.
Terrific, as always! About to book with Cheryl again. She's the best. Susan
I needed someone to watch Ben on relatively short notice. Cheryl responded right away to a meeting request and spent over 30 minutes meeting Ben, letting him explore her yard and meet her dog. She replied quickly to all communications, and while Ben was staying with her she took pictures and shared with me, really enjoyed that. Ben appears to have been well cared for and enjoyed his stay!
As always, Cheryl is wonderful with our dogs!
As always, our pups had a fabulous stay at Cheryl's house!
Cheryl is great with dogs. She has years of experience and our Sophie has now stayed with her twice. She has a very dog friendly place, and we were very comfortable leaving Sophie with her. That is always the main concern for pet parents, leaving our baby with someone, but we knew Sophie was in good hands. Thanks Cheryl! See you next time we need to leave Sophie.
Cheryl is always so kind to our pups! They love staying with her.
Cheryl's great as always. Our dogs love being with Cheryl and her furry friends, and we love knowing they are well cared for. Cheryl is highly recommended! I also love that when I arrive to pick up our dogs at the agreed upon time, Cheryl has all their items packed and ready for me. Makes it very easy!
Cheryl is an excellent host. She is very friendly, communicative, and obviously someone experienced and with a lot of love for dogs. I feel very comfortable leaving my dog with her.
Elmo and Gizmo loved their stay and Cheryl was great about sending pics !!
Cheryl is absolutely terrific! She knows dogs so well, and is so attentive and kind. We always feel so secure when she watches our pup!
So sweet and went out of her way to pick up my dog after some hiccups dropping her off. Would definitely use her services again. Thanks Cheryl!
Cheryl has taken such wonderful care of Annabelle, that she is considered the "second Mommy!" I highly recommend Cheryl as a trustworthy, and caring animal lover.
Cheryl was very flexible in meeting us, which was really appreciated with our crazy pre-holiday schedule. She obviously loves dogs and understands how to help a dog relax in a new environment and get acquainted with new dogs. We are so glad to know we can leave our dog in Cheryl's capable hands in the future!
Cheryl did a great job. I would not hesitate to recommend her.
Honestly, my Bentley loves to visit his new "Aunt Cheryl". She is the best! Responsibile, caring and fun...and with the best backyard a dog can ask for. Her shoes will be hard to fill when we leave the area, and we'll miss her.
Cheryl was extremely accommodating and very loving with our little Sadie. We brought out little dog with us to visit our daughter who lives in a "no-pets" apartment. Cheryl allowed us to pick up Sadie with little notice to take her out for "visits" with our daughter. Cheryl truly is a dog whisperer. She was able to assess Sadie's needs quickly and helped her adjust to her new surroundings and to other dogs. She even gave me advice on how to help Sadie become more accustomed to being around other dogs in future. She sent photo updates. I told her she not only took care of Sadie, but also Sadie's anxious mom. :-) Thank you so much, Cheryl, from our entire family.
Our pups LOVE staying at Cheryl's! Thanks so much!
Cheryl was very accommodating when I had to change the original reservation to the following week. Mika enjoyed exploring her large backyard and playing with a fellow guest.
Cheryl is such a nice lady and we are so glad she's watching doggies! Bentley did really good there with her and I can tell he just loves Cheryl by the time we came to pick him up.
Cheryl is the best. This is the second time our 2 small dogs have have stayed with Cheryl, and we are again very pleased. Cheryl takes excellent care of the dogs, keeps us updated with photos and texts, and our dogs are returned to us clean and happy. What more could we want?
We will use Cheryl again, and highly recommend her.
Excellent stay per usual!!! Cheryl is very accommodating with drop offs and pick ups and always make Gracie feel at home.
Cheryl is fantastic! Thank you so much for treating Merlin like a member of the family. :)
Corney now knows and loves Cheryl (and her lovely yard!)
Fantastic as always!
Cheryl was fantastic! Our puppy loved staying with her in her spacious yard. We will definitely use Cheryl again in the future. She is clearly someone who deeply loves dogs and cares for every dog that she watches like her own!
Cheryl took great care of Bubbles, he had a great time. The backyard is huge, the dogs have a lot of space to play. Cheryl posted regular updates and photos, we will certainly use Cheryl again, highly recommended!
Cheryl is a great care giver to dogs. Leo had a great time, I was receiving daily messages and photos of Leo from Cheryl which made the separation easier. Thanks Cheryl.
Gracie had a great time during her second stay with Cheryl. Cheryl provided daily updates and pictures of Gracie and was very accommodating to Gracie and her shy ways.
Ren and Keeva had a terrific time! We've been calling it their week at Doggy Sleepaway Camp. Thanks so much!
This was Gracie's first time staying with Cheryl and see had a very good time...will definitely use Cheryl again in the future. Gracie is a very shy dog and Cheryl helped make her feel at home and tailor Gracie's visit to feel as safe and comfortable as possible.
Cheryl did a great job getting Cornelius accustomed to the other dogs that were in her care. We loved getting the pictures and updates. Very responsible and responsive dog sitter!
This was our first Dog Vacay experience. Cheryl was great to communicate with starting with our first inquiry. We really appreciated her flexibility with drop off and pick up times as we were in the area for a family event and had a last minute schedule change.
Cheryl is great. This is my dog Buddy's first time away from us, I was worried. Cheryl sent us pictures of Buddy playing with other dogs, I felt much better knowing he is having fun too. When I picked him up, he licked Cheryl's face. He likes her.
Thank you, Cheryl!
She did great with our dog! He was a stray for some time before we adopted him, so he has trust issues with other dogs and people, but she was able to meet his unique needs well.
Cheryl was so amazing!! She was able to watch my pups on such short notice and took such great care of them. She had a huge backyard where they could play and she sent plenty of pictures and updates. Thank you again Cheryl for everything! My pups will definitely want to stay with you again :D
Cheryl was a great host to my mini poodle Wellington. Wellie has some separation anxiety, but Cheryl took wonderful care of him while I was away for a week and kept me updated daily with texts and photos. I generally worry about my little guy when I'm away from him, but I actually did not feel concerned at all leaving him in Cheryl's care. She obviously has a way with animals and cares a lot about their well being. I know Wellie enjoyed the personalized attention, the big yard to roam around in, and the other dog pals to play with while staying at Cheryl's!
Cheryl was a great sitter! Both our dogs came home happy and clean. Cheryl kept us updated with photos, she washed the dogs blanket, and had all their items packed and ready to go when I arrived to pick them up. We will definitely use Cheryl again; highly recommended!
Awesome time for both of our dogs. Cannot recommend Cheryl enough for dog sitting!
Cheryl was communicative, responsible, and our dogs were VERY happy to have her take care of them. We normally come home to excited pups. This time they happily but also calmly greeted us as Cheryl had taken great care of them prior to our arrival home.
Cheryl is very kind and Dash definitely was happy when I picked him up. That said, he was covered with the smell of cigarette smoke (a big bummer since Dash had just been to the groomer the day before). I had to wash his shirt and harness when we got home and spray Dash down with a deodorizer. My two young boys were really upset about the 2nd hand smoke dangers :-(
Cheryl was great. She had lots of room for our dog to run around and gave him personalized attention. Really appreciated the daily updates and pics. Those kept our daughters from worrying about how he was doing.
I would highly recommend Cheryl. She looked after Porter and Lily over the Christmas holidays and the dogs had a great time at her place. She has a huge backyard for them to run around and play in and they were really well looked after. Cheryl also posted photos and updates of the dogs every day so I didn't need to follow up with her to check that they were doing well while I was away. Overall the experience was great and I would definitely recommend Cheryl and DogVacay.
Our Golden Retriever, Momo enjoyed her stay with Cheryl. She is warm and friendly and has a huge, clean backyard for chasing squirrels and exploring. We will use her services again!
Cheryl took care of our Momo and Brownie for 2 weeks during the Thanksgiving and we were very happy with her. We will absolutely work with her again!
Cheryl was the best ever! She has a wonderfully big backyard with lots of things to do and explore. Teddy had a great time with his pals and didn't want to leave. Many thanks to Cheryl for a great time!
Cheryl has been willing to take on my daughter's 16 week old puppy. We are so happy that he is being well cared for and learning how to behave. Also he and the 1 year old lab, Lucy, are having a joyful and exhausting time run circles around each other.
Thank you Cheryl. You have a big heart.
Went to visit Cheryl and Pita for the day. Couldn't open the door fast enough, as our dog recognized where she was and happily trotted up to the gate. What a wonderful way to spend the day. Once again our doggie came home happy & pooped!
Cheryl was an excellent host; Very responsive and friendly. Our dogs had an awesome time wandering around her large yard and playing with other dogs. Overall, it was a great experience for them and convenient for us.
Cheryl and her dog were great hosts! Indy was very happy in Cheryl's care. Her daily photos showed a relaxed and happy dog. I would ask her to care for him again. While happy to see us, he was in no hurry to leave Cheryl when we picked him up. He was absolutely happy in her care.
Cheryl did everything to make our dog feel comfortable and at home. Our lab had so much fun playing in the yard and the freedom it gave her. We will certainly visit again.
Cheryl took great care of our lab over a very hot weekend. She has a great big yard for pets to hang out in and a sweet companion dog. We will definitely work with Cheryl again!
My goldendoodle Aspen had a wonderful time in Cheryl's care! He loved hanging out on her patio, exploring her large yard, playing tug, and taking naps with her dog, Pita. I so appreciated Cheryl's texts and photos that let me know Aspen was having a great time. I'll definitely turn to Cheryl the next time we need someone to take care of our dog.
Widget had a good time again!
Cheryl was great. She responded to my request immediately and was very accommodating. It made my first experience a very positive one!
Cheryl was a great host for our pup Widget's first night away from home. Cheryl has a large yard occupied by 2 small dogs, so our poodle mix fit right in. She posted a photo to let us know how well Widget was doing. I would gladly have her take care of Widget again.
Cheryl was so caring of our pets over a 3 week vacay stay! She sent pictures and regular updates that were so reassuring to us that all was going well. Cheryl adapted to our needs, taking our cat as well as our dog, with a great attitude of helpfulness.Both of our pets are 14 years old and require medication which she administered. I can't recommend her more highly.
Our thirteen month-old cockapoo, Kona, spent three days with Cheryl and enjoyed her spacious backyard, friendly little companion dog, and Cheryl's caring touch and attention. Cheryl is definitely someone Kona would love to visit with again and again. Thanks for the wonderful job, Cheryl.
