About Sherri

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Whether for a day or an extended stay, I am available to play, walk, snuggle, feed, and care for the needs of your precious pet(s) at your home, if this is your preference, in order to provide minimal disruption in their familiar routine and surroundings.

I have had the pleasure throughout my life of caring for family, friends', neighbors', acquaintances', and referrals' pets, as well as my own. I am now free to care for others around the clock as my two fur babies of 19 years have crossed-over. I have since dedicated time to ensure pets without people are well socialized while waiting for their forever homes by volunteering at no-kill animal sanctuaries, imparting me the opportunity to enjoy and experience an abundance of personalities and behaviors while giving back.

I have cared for animals of all kinds, shapes and sizes and I value and appreciate the special connection between pets and their people, which is why I am grateful and find it fulfilling to use my time and abilities to meet the needs of pet owners and their “precious paws” to allow you peace of mind when away from home.

Please feel free to request further services according to your needs and I will provide a custom quote.

The basic services I offer are:

Dog walking and play time at a base rate of $25;

Daycare or overnight care at your home for a base rate of $65/$85, respectively;

Pet sitting not limited to doggies;

General house sitting.

Note: I love cats and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting! I'm happy to stay at your house or visit your kitty while you're away.


In addition to providing update photos of your pet(s) while they are in my care, I also can provide more specialized photography of your "precious paws".

We have used Sherri many times over the past year to walk and pet sit our dog and we couldn't be happier with the service she provides.
She is always prompt, courteous and happy to be with our pup who absolutely adores her. Plus we get beautiful pics showing the days adventures,
Definitely recommend Sherri - 5 stars without a doubt.

Sherri is an amazing sitter!! Five stars. Received updates and beautiful photos of my dogs enjoying the sunshine.
Sherri is always a treat to have in our home and taking care our girls, Sadie and Presley! Her attention to detail, her affection for our babies, I never worry when she is here. And, she clearly loves what she is doing, and cares for the animals she stays with. Don't know what we would do without her!

Sherri is the most caring, lovable person...we trust her completely with our babies...such a blessing to have found her, and for her to be a part of our lives!!!! John and Deborah Jakubek, and the "girls"☺️
Sherri is amazing with our pups! We love seeing the pictures she sends us of Zana and Juno and we know they are both getting lots of love when with Sherri.
Sherri is the best! She takes excellent care of our Shaggy---even taking him to different places/parks for walks.

Sherri is just wonderful with our senior dog and I can go away and have fun knowing our baby is so well cared for!

Plus our home is left in perfect condition!

Highly recommend Sherri. I have used her a number of times now to walk and petsit my pup and as always she is very reliable, punctual and very personable and most of all my puppy adores her. Wouldn't use anyone else
Sherri is great. I have had her take care of my dog a few times over the past couple of weeks.
She is always punctual, reliable, professional and
very accommodating . She made friends with my dog Kayla very quickly and went out of her way to find fun trips and playtime for her.
In fact Kaylas ears perk up when I mention her name.
Would definitely recommend her for all your puppy's needs and I will definitely use her again in the future.

Sherri is absolutely the best! Oliver has a wonderful time, and is always quite happy and tired when I come home. Thank you again Sherri.
Sherri is the best!! We love that she texted and emailed photos of our Shaggy.....she even did some videos.
I could tell from the photos and videos that Shaggy was very comfortable with Sherri. We had such peace of mind that our "baby" was so well taken care of!

Sherri was wonderful!! She kept in touch via texts, sent many photos of our Shaggy and even did a Merry Christmas video. We felt so comfortable having Sherri watch our baby--she did a great job!!
Sherri is the best. My pup was happy and calm and enjoyed having Sherri at the house. She sent the cutest photos, and certainly cared about my dog. I would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and also have her take care of Oliver again.
Thank you Sherri! We had Sherri doggie-sit our rat terrier - Archie - while we attended our son's wedding. From the initial start of contacting Sherri she was timely and friendly in all of her responses. She proactively set up our "meet and greet" and from the moment we (including Archie) met her we were at ease and excited. Sherri shared pictures of Archie while she was watching him - and followed up to make sure that we were happy with her services. We would absolutely use Sherri again and highly recommend her for any doggie-sitting services you might need!

Sherri has watched our two dogs multiple times and does a fantastic job! We came home to very happy pups after Sherri stayed overnight with them, plus she provided amazing photos which helped us feel at ease while we were away. I highly recommend Sherri for overnight stays or daily walks, your pet(s) will be happy!

AMAZING! LOVE Sherri and so do my dogs!
I was grateful to find Sherri. While most dog sitters watch your dog at their house she came to my house where I knew Kassidy, my dalmatian, would be most comfortable and secure. Spending time with Kassidy at home along with taking her out on doggie outings is what she is used to and I was looking for. Sherri was professional, friendly, and responded promptly to my inquires along with posting regular updates while I was away. I came home to a happy dog and happy house!
