About Cherie

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a Licensed Veterinary Technician at Mattydale Animal Hospital. My husband Ted is retired, so he takes care of the guests when I am at work. I went to Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology and graduated with an AAS in animal health technology in 2006.

When the guests get here, the leashes come off and are very seldom seen again until it's time to go home, unless we go to Onondaga Lake Park. The guests have direct access to the large securely fenced back yard.

We don't crate or kennel the dogs unless that's a normal part of their routine.

We also specialize in animals that may have special needs such as recovery from surgeries etc.

We board many types of pets including cats, birds, Guinea Pigs, lizards and more.

Cherie and her hubby are great! My dog was happy and got tons of play time.
Cherie and her husband are genuinely interested and caring about the animals that stay with them. I feel very reassured about having my dog with them and feel at ease with leaving my dog with them for a longer time.
Lexie had a great stay with Cherie. Many pictures were sent that showed her just laying around of mingling with the other dogs - just like she does at home! Thanks again for providing wonderful care for Lexie.
Cherie is the best. would not want to use anyone else Our dog is very well treated and happy
I knew that while I was away on a mini-vacation of my own, that I could count on Cherie S. to handle my dog with the best experience possible. I didn't have a worry in the world about leaving my precious furry companion with Cherie & Ted. I truly believe that I have found the perfect dog sitter to utilize for any occasion and always mention to other friends of her quality service. Thanks Again, Cherie & Ted!
My dog Winnie had a great time with her new human and doggie pals at Cherie's place! Winnie is sometimes high anxiety, and she just had surgery, so she has some special needs and requirements. Cherie and Ted handled them without any fuss, and they made Winnie feel so at home that she forgot about her anxieties and even had fun out in the yard with the other dogs!

I could tell she had a comfortable stay because, when I picked her up, she was calm and not at all anxious to leave.

All in all, a great experience. Thanks Cherie and Ted for taking good care of my baby! :)
Cherie did a wonderful job with our finicky Sheltie. We will be using her again.
Cherie was very friendly and accommodating! Our doggie was well cared for and there were no concerns :)
Lexie had another great time with Cherie. Moved the pictures.
Cherie was phenomenal! Her and Ted had Zuko for 5 days and we would recommend anybody to have them watch your dog!
Cherie and her husband were great caretakers for our Dog Foster during our first trip away from him since we adopted him 14 months ago. I received several photos and a video showing how well he was adapting to his "home away from home," as well as with her own dogs. We were able to visit her home in advance of our trip to see if it would be a good environment for Foster. It was that and more. Would highly recommend Cherie for any dog owner who wants piece of mind while away on a trip, long or short.
Second time going to Cherie she is very Gd.
It's was our first time doing this.. Cherie & Ted made our family feel comfortable. They kept me up to date as how my dog was doing. I txted her she replied @ a timely frame. She sent me pictures of my dog.I really appreciate them..I will b returning to them.
Our American Bull dog Loves Cherie and Ted. She is happy when we drop her off and happy when we pick her up. Cherie Also comes to our house several times a month to let Kara out for bathroom breaks when we are stuck at work. We have felt comfortable allowing Cherie to have full access to our house. I would and do recommend her to anyone.
My dog was relaxed when I came home not at all overwhelmed or freaked out so I know Cherie did a great job.
Lexie is a frequent visitor at Cherie's. She always goes right in and Cherie has everything organized for a smooth pickup. Thanks!
Very nice people and took very good care of my pet rabbit
Cherie and Ted were great "parents" for my beautiful 14 year old baby. They took special care of of her elderly needs. I received messages and pictures everyday while she was "vacationing". Abbey was very happy and well loved there.
Cherie and her husband were outstanding!!! I have a year old Siberian Husky that is high strung and wants to be the alpha male when it comes to other dogs.

He has a heart of gold, but can definitely be needy. Cherie and her husband did everything to accommodate Schumi and more.

Both he and I were very happy. I recommend Cherie and her husband. I can't thank them enough and they will be my first choice if I need to have someone care for Schumi again.
We booked with Cherie and Ted over the Christmas weekend. Our dogs have been there many times before and we always feel extra secure leaving them with such caring people.
Cody was very happy to return to Cherie's house the second day!! We could tell he had a good time, was well taken care of, and not stressed out. Thank you Cherie and to your husband too. Julie Swann
Cherie and her husband Ted were outstanding!!!. I have a young Husky of 12 months and he is not the easiest furry friend to take care of and they made every effort to insure his stay with them was a great experience.

I would highly recommend them to everyone that needs a quality, caring, and compassionate boarder for their furry family members.

Thank you Cherie and Ted,

Dan & Schumi
Cherie always provides great service and care.
I'm so thankful for Ted and Cherie! We needed to make a last minute trip and they were there for Angus...and of course he had a wonderful time!
As usual, Sasha was very well taken care of and I never have to worry when she is with Cherie and Ted.
Cherie and Ted are amazing with Sasha who can be a real pain. She is always happy and does very well with them.
We have NEVER left our two dogs with anyone before. But with the whole family going away to Disney, we weren't going to miss out. We met Cherie a week before leaving our dogs with her, and felt confident that they would be in good hands. Little did we know that they would be in GREAT hands. Not only did they get lots of loving and play time, but my husband and I got lots of updates with photos all along the way. In fact, I jokingly told Cherie the day before we returned that I was afraid they wouldn't want to leave her to come home with us. Reviews meant a lot when we were doing our research, and I hope this review will help ease your mind when making your decision. You won't have a worry in the world, when you trust Cherie and her wonderful husband Ted, to care for your pups when you're away. We are so glad we chose them. We'll definitely be back.
Angus loves Ted and Cherie! And I always get the best photos of him, enjoying every minute of his vacation!
Cherie has a great setup with a large, secure backyard, with somebody always home to keep an eye on the dogs. I felt 100% comfortable boarding my dog with her.
Met Cherie and her husband a few days before the trip. They both seemed very nice and they did have a lot of small dogs and cats. The house was clean and I did not smell animal excrement. My dog is a small pug and is the only animal in our house so he does like it when he has other animals to play with. So I thought he might have fun at this house. We dropped him off on Tuesday with information about where we staying and who our vets are. Cherie's husband was there to greet my husband and my pug and then we took off for our trip and left my pug behind to have a good time , I hope. We got back about 2pm on Friday. My pug was very happy to see us. He looked like he had gained weight which is as concern of mine because sometimes he won't eat when we are gone. Cherie's husband said my pug had a good time while he was there and they would love to have him stay again. The $30.00 dollars a day I felt was reasonable. Cherie is a vet tech so that was another plus.
Cherie was fantastic as always! I wish we were still in Syracuse so we could use her services more!
Lexie had another great stay with Cherie and Ted. She walked in with her tail wagging and comes home the same way. Lexie is a regular visitor and will be back again!
As usual our dog Lucy was well cared for. I can tell by the way she wags her tail and gets excited when she sees Cherie
Cherie and Ted are wonderful with Sasha and she seems happy and well cared for when I come home. They are a great source of peace for me because I don't have to worry about her at all.
Cherie was fantastic! She said she takes last minute reservations. We put in request late Friday night for Saturday and we had reservation that night. We picked up Sammy after our outing... happy safe and ready for a nap. THANK YOU! We don't have any daycare available on Saturdays where we live. This was wonderful.
We were a little anxious about leaving our beagle with anyone while we were in Florida on vacation, but he was very well taken care of. We received texts while we were away showing him having a great time, both at the their home and when he went on a little trip to the lake. I think he had a better time than he would have if he could have gone with us. Many thanks to Cherie and her husband for giving our little guy such a good experience!
Cherie took great care of our dog for a week.Bailey was very tired and happy when she got home. Our dog is blind and Cherie didn't hesitate to take her in.
As always, Angus had a wonderful stay with Ted and Cherie! He was all tuckered out when we picked him up! Thanks again!!!
Such a wonderful stay for our pup. I'm so happy we chose Cherie for our pup!
Cherie and her husband were great! We were going to Canada with no internet service and I felt so secure knowing she was a vet tech!

We dropped our dog off seamlessly and when we picked him up he was very relaxed and happy. He seemed like he had a great time and he can easily get stressed about being separated from his pack. Cherie made his visit wonderful and they were with him 24/7!

Thank you so much for hosting Ketch at your house!
Cherie and her husband were welcoming and kind. They were very easy going and attentive to my dogs during their stay. I will definitely be bringing my dogs back to stay with Cherie and her family next time I go out of town.
Amazing in every way. Made me so comfortable leaving my service dog for the first time with people I don't know. Even sent me text pictures all during the stay. Ruggles was happy. So was I. And they were so accommodating when my Tavel plans didn't work out the way i first told them. Two paws up!
Cherie and Ted have been wonderful when I have left Sasha in the past. They are true animal lovers. I trust them completely with my girl!!!!
Lexie had another great stay. She was a little reticent when I dropped her off and I told
Cherie to please keep an extra eye on her. I received several texts with pictures to show me how her stay was going - this provided me with a wave of relief to know she had acclimated herself. Thank you Cherie.
We love Ted and Cherie!!!! Angus barely says 'bye' to me when I drop him off there! :)
Lexie had another great stay with Cherie. Lexie had an unexpected limp just when I had to drop her off and Cherie answered my several texts about her condition very promptly. Thank you.
Once again Cherie was great with our pups. We were concerned about our old guy. Cherie accommodated his inability to climb stairs. Both our dogs enjoyed the large fenced in yard. We knew this because Cherie sent great pictures.

Their home away from home.
I can't tell you how HAPPY I am we found Ted and Cherie for Angus. He LOVES it there and I don't worry when we go out of town. I'm also going to start bringing him to daycare there - hopefully this summer.
Once again Gus and Mya enjoyed their stay with Cherie and Ted. We loved the updated pictures that are always sent to us. Gus and Mya look forward to their next stay.
Once again Cherie and her husband Ted provided excellent care for my energetic, indoor marking boy! They even managed to put a wrap on him to eliminate his need to lift his leg and mark, something I had not been able to do. He was healthy and happy upon his return. I will continue to depend on them for my dog sitting needs!
Lexie has been quite the regular at Cheri's. She still continues to go in with excitement, have wonderful pictures and is a tired happy big-dog pup when she comes home! Cherie and her husband are always very polite and talk about Lexie which comforts me in knowing they have spent time with her.
This is the fifth or sixth time Brice has stayed with Cherie and Ted, and he is always well-loved and taken care of. I rest easy when I have to travel, knowing my pup is happy and cared for!
Cherie and Ted are the best! Feel at ease leaving your pet with Cherie
As usual, Lexie had a great way at Cheri's. I am very comfortable leaving Lexie when I see how excited she is to get there and how she is with the other dogs that are there. Thank you.
Angus LOVES Ted and Cherie! I'm so glad we found them on Dog Vacay! Thank you, thank you!
Awesome experience. Cherie was very accommodating when snowstorm made my return a day late. She was able to take Lexie another day and it was a great relief to me. Loved seeing the pics of Lexie in the snow!
Lexie had another great stay. I love the pictures sent with her new doggy friends.
Princess had great care while I was recovering fro surgery. Cherie brought her home for me which was much appreciated. Princess was glad to be home but sorry to see Cherie leave!
Gus and Mya have stayed multiple times at Cherie and Teds. Like every time they visit they have a blast and look forward to their next stay.
Once again Gus and Mya had a wonderful time, they especially enjoyed the outdoor time in the snow!! :)
As always, Angus had a wonderful time and I felt great knowing that he was so well taken care of!
Gus and Mya have stayed with Cherie and Ted on multiple occasions. Like always, their stay is a vacation for them both.
As always, Brice was super excited to go to Cherie & Ted's and came home happy, healthy, and extremely worn out. :-) Thanks again!
Another wonderful stay for Lexie! She loves seeing Cherie and Ted - along with their does too! Lexie will be back!
We had to stay an extra day, which kept us from coming home on our scheduled date. Ted and Cherie were happy to accommodate Gus and Mya for an extra evening. Thanks Cherie and Ted :)
Once again Gus and Mya had a wonderful time. Cherie and Teds is like their home away from home. :)
Lexie was again well taken care of. Thank you!
Once again we are very pleased with the care our pups received. Provisions were made by Cherie and her husband to ensure that our older dog did not have to climb stairs and could easily go out in the yard and play.
Once again Sherie And Ted took excellent care of Lucie. I can't say enough good about them. Our dog enjoys going there
Lexie had another great stay at Cherie's! Cherie and her husband always have something to share about Lexie - they have even mentioned some of Lexie's "quirks" so I know they have definitely spent time interacting with her! Thank you again and Lexie will be back. I had messed something up when making this reservation and needed to call the concierge. They were very helpful and helped me straighten out my mistake with it not affecting my reservation with Cherie.
Another great stay with Cherie! Our second time there and she was so kind and understanding of my little guy, and all his quirks! I love the fact that she has a very flexible drop-off and pick-up schedule. Other sitters I have used in the past have very narrow windows of time, and it can be stressful when you are not able to predict exactly when you can pick-up. Thanks Cherie and Ted!
once again, Gus and Mya had a wonderful visit!!!
Cherie is the best! She takes excellent care of our dog Our dog loves her and her husband Ted
Our dogs, Chester and MacGregor were happy and so well taken care of by Cherie and her husband Ted. This was their second visit and they seemed excited to return. We are so glad we found DogVacay and especially Cherie!
I thought I had already reviewed this stay! It was another awesome stay for Lexie! I believe she had as much fun on her vacation as I did on mine! I loved the to see her out with others. Cherie took care of Lexie's ear infection and ears look great! Thank you !
Great Job!!!
Lexie had another great stay at Cherie's. I love the photos they send that shows her out in the yard/house enjoying herself with other!
This was the third time my puppy Brice has stayed with Cherie and Ted, and they'll continue to be our first choice when I have to travel!
He gets excited when he gets there, and is EXHAUSTED when I get him home. You can tell they genuinely love the dogs they care for, and that puts me at ease. It's so wonderful knowing he's getting so much affection and exercise when he's there!
Don't hesitate to book a stay with Cherie and her husband Ted! They were exceptionally loving and tolerant with my little 15 lb. "hyper-still marks in the house" Chi-Pug mix! This was my first time leaving him with them, and I could not have been more pleased with their service. This was the fourth place that I have tried and it was such a relief to have a successful stay. My dog came back happy and healthy and was not hoarse from excessive barking. It was also very reassuring to know that she is an experienced vet tech,( just in case... ) I will definitely
use their service again!
Cherie did a great job! Love the fenced in backyard. It's obvious how much Cherie and her husband Ted, care about their animals! Our pup had a great time and we would definitely use Cherie again!
As always, Angus had a wonderful time! Thank you Cherie and Ted!!! See you soon!
dog seemed happy and well cared for we would certainly use her again
Cherie and Ted took great care of our 15 year old lab mix. They were very attentive to the needs of an older dog. We have used this dog vacay before and would definitely use them again!
Cherie and Ted are very nice people. They sent pictures of Zoey to us and she seemed to be having a good time. I would recommend Cherie and Ted to anyone looking to border there dog. Thanks again for watching Zoey.
Cherie and her husband have again provided Lexie a wonderful vacation of her own. I LOVED the pictures her with other dogs in Cherie's care. I have already booked Lexie's next stay with them!
Our dogs had a great stay with Cherie. They were well cared for and all their needs were met. We loved the pictures of the three dogs that Cherie set to us while we were away.
No question next time we need to board our dogs they will be going to Cherie's.
Rating - 5. Cherie and Ted took such good care of Chester and MacGregor this weekend. It was our first time leaving our "babies" for a few days and everything went great! And, what a great surprise to see Chester and MacGregor's pictures on the site when we got home. We will sure recommend Cherie and Ted to our friends.
This was our second stay at Cherie's. We really appreciated the pictures of the dogs while we were away as well as Cherie & Ted's wonderful flexibility with drop off and pick up times. Thank you so much for your kind and attentive care-taking of our pups while we were out of town.
Cherie & Ted took such good care of my puppy, Brice! He was happy, healthy, and exhausted when I got him home. He's going back this coming weekend, and I'm sure he'll be excited when he realizes where he's headed!
Once again our dogs Gus and Mya enjoyed their stay at Cherie and Ted's. Thank you Cherie and Ted. :)
Cherie and her husband Ted are the best!!! Anytime we leave town, our dog heads to their place and is well cared for. I highly recommend.
Cherie & Ted were very patient with our dogs & knowledgable about dog behavior. We were especially comfortable leaving our dogs with them after out Meet and Greet session.
Lily was pretty much at home with Cherie and her husband. They worked as a team to take care of her, since she's an 8 month old pup. Cherie sent us pictures from her weekend in their giant backyard and all the toys that Lily got to play with. She had a blast, and we'd definitely bring her back here again if we ever travel away.
Cherie takes excellent care of our dog.We are very happy we have her and Ted. The arangment could not be better.
Cherie and Ted were wonderful in caring for our two labs Gus and Mya. We were updated frequently with photos and texts. Gus and Mya enjoyed the beautiful backyard and extra TLC. Thank you Cherie and Ted!!!!
This is the first time we have left our 9 1/2 year old golden retriever with anyone other than family. Cherie and her husband surely treated him well because our senior dog, who has a propensity to be anxious, was his normal happy and energetic self when we picked him up. He was well rested, clean (despite it being a rainy/muddy few days) and obviously well cared for. Thank you!
Cherie and Ted
thanks for the excellent care you give out dog.
we always feel relaxed when she is in you care.
we are very happy to have you
Carm & Alex
Angus had another wonderful time with Ted and Cherie! He was EXHAUSTED when he got home. It's so nice to know I can go away (and be away from my baby boy) and not worry about him. He's in good hands with Ted and Cherie! I even saw pictures of him with cats!!! No way! :)
I was able to attend to business out of town without worrying about my "fur" baby. Cherie has such a calm demeanor with my HUGE "lap" dog. Lexie went to Cheri excited and wagging her tail and she returned the same to me! Will definitely be coming back when needed.
This was the first time we ever left Molly with someone other than family. Cherie and Ted helped so much to put my mind at ease. Molly was happy and healthy when we returned. Our flight was late getting in so we weren't able to pick her up until after midnight. No problem for Cherie and Ted We will not hesitate to have these wonderful animal lovers take care of our baby in the future!!
Lexie had another awesome visit with Cherie and her husbvand, and of course Jack! It was wonderful receiving a p[icture of Lexie outside playing in the yard. Lexie is always wagging her tail when I pick her up.
Cherie and her husband were very accommodating for drop off and pick up times. My dog seemed to be right at home with them. Would highly recommend!
Each of our two dogs has minor issues, one health-related and one has a quirky personality. Cherie and Ted were flexible and kind, making changes to their layout and routine to accommodate Buddy's leg problems. The dogs look great. We look forward to using Savannah Wolf B&B again!
Cherie did a great job. She sent us pictures of our happy dog and kept us informed. We are extremely happy with Cherie and her husband Ted. We will most definitely call her again
Cherie and her husband took great care of our dog, Sasha. It was obvious she enjoyed her stay and we will most certainly be taking her back there any time there is a need to leave Sasha behind on our travels. I highly recommend Cherie to anyone.
Responsive and very responsible as an in home pet sitter for our three dogs.
My puggle, Angus, can be very anxious and quite energetic. I dropped him off with Cherie and Ted and Jack (their timid dog) and worried a bit that Angus would be a nuisance. I came to pick Angus up and first Jack and then Angus, right behind him, raced to the window to say hi. Jack and Angus were buddies! And Ted said Angus was very well-behaved. He slept ALL day yesterday. THANK YOU!
I thought I had done this, but received another notification, so I will repeat Lexie appeared to have a great time. I also enjoyed seeing her walk around the living room withe Cherie's dog, and seeing her head pop up at a window when I was at the door. I forgot to mention in the previous note that Cherie attended to Lexie's ear infection while she was there and her ears look great! Thank you Cherie!
Lexie had another great stay with Cherie and her husband. It was so nice to see Lexie's head looking out the window when I pulled in the driveway and to see her interacting with their dog when I went into the house. We will definitely use Cherie again!
Sasha was very happy and well taken care of by Cherie and family. My vacation was wonderful because I didn't have to worry about her being caged and alone. She was comfortable and happy. I would recommend Cherie's hosting. It was a pleasure dealing with her and her husband.
As far as we know, Willow was very well cared for. We left her from Fri. late am until Sun. early pm. She was very happy to see us, but also seemed to be content/happy with her care while we were gone. We will definitely leave her here again if
My dog, Lexie, had wonderful time! When I picked her up her tail was wagging she had her "smile". She showed no signs of stress. Cherie and her husband said specific things about Lexie so I know they spent time with her. Lexie is a large breed dog (120 pounds) and it was obvious during the meet and greet and during drop off and pick up they are comfortable with all size dogs. I already booked Lexie's August vacation with her!
Brownie and Princess were well taken care of. Princess was naughty and had accidents, Cherie is very patient!
Cherie and her husband were great and very accommodating!
Very nice and accommodating! Easy to get a hold of, took great care of our dog and was flexible to our needs! They are true animal lovers!
Our dog, Hobbes, had a great stay here! Cherie sent us pictures daily with a few words about Hobbes. Cherie and Ted took him to the park several times, and he came back to us healthy and happy. We would definitely use this host again!
