About Cheryl

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband, Mark, and I are dog lovers and have raised our own dogs and provided pet care for many dogs over the years. Your pet will receive personalized attention and lots of love in a beautiful, cage-free, home environment.

Our Santa Cruz mountain home sits on 6 acres and is located mid-way between Los Gatos and Santa Cruz. The property is securely fenced with lots of sunshine and space for four-legged friends to play and hang out. We are surrounded by lots of trails for daily hiking and exploring.

Our resident dog, Cheyenne, is a sweet, gentle Labrador Retriever. A "Furry Friend", she participates in pet-assisted therapy with monthly visits to a local nursing home. She thoroughly enjoys all human and pet company and makes friends very easily.

We also frequent the dog-friendly beaches in Santa Cruz with our dog and will do regular weekend beach outings for your dog as well.

We generally provide 24x7 care but occasionally your dog will need to stay at home with Cheyenne and other guest pups for limited periods without supervision.

All sizes of pets are welcome to visit as long as they are obedient, house trained, and non-barkers.

Your dog will be in excellent hands (and paws) with us and will be guaranteed to get lots of TLC.

SPECIAL NOTES:
Overnight boarding is booked in 24-hour increments. A daycare charge applies if pick-up occurs after the 24 hour window.

For our holiday guests:
For New Year's Day, 4th of July, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year's Eve, an additional $20/day surcharge will apply.

Cheryl is an awesome person who really cares for the well being of the dogs that are in her care. I was a little anxious about the whole experience going into this because we had never done this before. After meeting Cheryl, I really was at ease and more so after. We have now found extended family to watch our dog well we are away!

Not only are they just great people in general, they are amazing with dogs! My pup got to go to the beach every day and Cheryl sent me amazing photos daily as well. I am so relieved to have found a great 2nd home for our Rhodesian Ridgeback! She truly didn't want to leave!

Our 5 year-old lab Shasta loved his return visit with Cheryl! From hanging out with his doggy pals to trips to the beach every day, we're surprised he wanted to come home with us! Cheryl was great in keeping in touch, sending us photos and updates every day. It's clear that she loves the dogs that she cares for and we couldn't be happier with his stay.
