About Shari

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We accept all types of animals from reptiles to rabbits and from birds to canines. Lots of love and individual attention provided.

Pets have been a large part of my life and I continue to enjoy the company of all types of animal friends.I grew up on a farm and worked through high school in a veterinarian office.

We have a large ranch style home (only 3 stairs which can be avoided) with a fenced yard. We do not use kenneling/crating unless requested. Animals are free to roam and establish routines are followed for your pet.

We have other animals (dog, rabbit, cat and tortoise) whose environment can be modified depending on your dog's needs. Guest animals always remain in the general living space of the home. Our rescue/rehab animals have limited access to the general living space. We are happy to let you know which animals are on the property at any given time so you can determine if we will meet your needs.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us! We love to meet new animals and owners!

Shari and her family are great with my two pups. One is 4 yrs old, the other 4 months and they just love going to the sitter. I would recommend in a heart beat!
Shari was great. We felt very comfortable with leaving Devin there and he came home happy and healthy. I'd recommend them and happily use them again.
Very nice people and my dog felt comfortable there.
I was so nervous to leave my 13 year old lab, he has never been left with anyone and gets very anxious if he can't see me. I was worried he would cry all night, but shari put me at ease by reassuring me he would be great.
She sent me regular texts and pictures of him. She accommodated rugs and bedding just for him and his bad hip. He decided where he wanted to sleep and shari would move his bed to that area.
I am already planning another get a way in January. I will be more relaxed this time.
Shari was absolutely fantastic! Our dog (german Shepherd) is a new adoptee and rescue and he did so great. Shari sent pictures and I knew I was in good hands with Shari! I would not hesitate having her watch our sweet boy again. He came back much better behaved too! :)
Our dog Sam enjoyed his stay with Shari, he came home calm and well cared for. We will for sure use this service again, so enjoyed Shari! was very easy to sign up for and met our expectations.
Shari and family are the BEST ! Teddy loves to go play and stay over !!!
Shari and her family were fantastic in the care of our lab, Buddy. Buddy loved staying with them and I am sure we will use Shari and her family a whole lot more. Thank you Shari and family for providing such a wonderful home away from home.

Shari is a fantastic sitter! She is one of the only sitters my dog isn't nervous around. She took my pup on walks at the dog park and has sent me several pictures! And when I came to pick him up he was cleaner than when I dropped him off. I feel at ease when he is with Shari and we will be using her lots more!
My rating for Shari & family is 5 star and more importantly Otis' is also 5 star. He is a rescue with separation anxiety and I feel confident by his reaction when I picked him up that he stayed with an outstanding and loving family. I WAS very apprehensive for him and am greatly relieved with the current and future stays that I will schedule..
As always, our girls had an amazing stay. It's such a relief to know we never have to worry about their care when we leave them with Shari and her family. Thanks again!
Winston loves getting to spend time with his vacation family! Shari, Colin, Tasha and Billy treat my old guy like a king and he really gets all the love and attention he can want. :) Thank you!!
Jasmine and Stormy seemed to be very well cared for and were treated as they were at home. Both dogs acted very comfortable with being at Shari's home after their stay.
Shari and her family were AMAZING! Our big Dobie-Hound dog had so much fun that she didn't want to leave! Shari was great...she sent us updates and pictures of our girl smiling away and having a great time. Shari was also kind and knowledgeable enough to share some insights into improving Bella's "trouble" area of walking on a leash...this insight alone is worth the cost of the stay! I am so glad that we found a better solution to boarding our dogs...if you're looking for a wonderfully personalized experience for your dog, Shari is your solution!
This was the second time Teddy stayed with Shari. He was very excited to return and we could tell that he had a great time while we were gone. It truly was a vacation for him. We are thankful to have found such a wonderful family to care for our pup when we need it.
This is Patches' second stay with Shari, and he had such a good time (again)! He made friends with their family (human and furry ones) and was well cared for and loved. We loved getting the picture updates, too! Patches' is 10 yrs old and has diabetes, and Shari knows how to take care of his needs. So happy we found her - we have peace of mind when we've got to leave town and can't bring our baby with us!
Thank you Shari,
My dog was such a happy camper by the time I picked him up. I worry myself that he would have preferred to stay with you!
Ah, well, in any case I would return to your loving home again with my fur-babies any day!
Thank you again!
Our dog Teddy spent his first weekend away from home with Sari and her family. He is a very active 1 year old golden doodle and loves to socialize and play. He had a fabulous time! Upon meeting Shari it is clear to see that she has a very loving home and feels comfortable with animals. Teddy is looking forward to hIs next visit I am sure!
Maxie loves to go to his dog sitter, Shari!
My boys love going to SHARI'S....We feel good about leaving them and do not worry about the care they are receiving.
Winston is always treated like family when he stays with Shari and her family and we feel very fortunate to have him at their house his vacation family fix! (almost every weekend this summer!)
Our pup, Patches, had a great time with Shari and family. He was happy and comfortable, which made us happy and comfortable :) Looking forward to staying with Harer Haus again soon!
Once again, Shari was able to take a last minute reservation due to a family emergency and put my mind at ease, knowing my dogs were well cared for and at their home away from home. Shari and her family are the BEST!!
Every time Winston stays with Shari and family he is treated just like a special guest! Lots of love and cuddles and time on the couch. :)
Sheri and family are like our dog's second home. He knows the routine and just flows right back in as soon as he gets through the door. They are careful with our dog as he is older with a few health issues and he always comes home in great form!
The Best!
I really need to stay on top of these reviews! Shari and her family are the best vacation family for our Westie! He loves them and they really do love him too!
Always wonderful!
We love bringing Winston to stay with his vacation family!
Perfect; thanks!
Awesome; thanks!
Amazing, amazing, amazing,! And did I mention amazing? Shari and her family are awesome! Our dogs were well cared for, exercised, and extremely comfortable. We couldn't have been more happy with our experience. We hope to be back in the near future and call on Shari and her family to help take care of our babies while we're gone . Thank you!
My doggie is treated like a king when he visits his dog sitters, Shari and family.
Our boys were very happy (and very tired) when they got home from Sheri's home. She did a great job of letting us know our little guys were doing well while we were away.
Shari and family were wonderful with our standard poodle, Bella! We are so pleased we are booking with them again for our next vacation. They kept her busy, sent great pictures (thanks Tasha!) and were flexible with pick up time when we were delayed. Bella seemed happy and comfortable when we picked her up which is always a great sign!
Shari and her home is a godsend. I can't imagine being the single parent of a four-legged child without her support.
Shari, her home, and family are so wonderful to my dog. I didn't feel guilty about leaving my baby with them for the holidays because they made him feel like a part of their family holiday.

I will always use Shari so long as I live in this location and she is in business. She's becoming more like a friend to me each time Boone stays with her.
Shari was so kind and very flexible to help us with the drop off and pick up times. She sent several pictures which was nice because we missed our little pooch while on vacation. We didn't know exactly how many other dogs would be there throughout his stay and he didn't come back the cleanest. However, Indy looked like he had a great time and was able to get exercize and socialize with other dogs so that's what was more important to us :)
Shari & Tasha took care of our King Charles Cavalier will we were on a cruise and were extremely caring and protective as if she was one of their own. Highly recommend and will continue having Ginger stay with future needs. Thanks so much.
My dog Maxie is treated as one of the family and loves going to visit!
This host family was INCREDIBLE! We arrived to their house and was immediately helped by her husband carry everything in. We waited around to make sure he was getting acclimated to his surroundings. They were amazing treating all the dogs in their care with the utmost respect. Dog beds and toys were in abundance. We got several pictures and he looked very at ease, one picture even lounging on the couch with the family. It definitely put us at ease. When we picked him up we talked about the walks that he would go on and the adventures with the other dogs. He arrived home and was his happy go lucky self. I highly recommend her and her family.
Shari (and her family) provide a loving, safe environment for my little guy when I need to travel, both long and short trips. She's so wonderful, sends nice photos and updates to let me know Boone is doing great. My only concern is that my dog may one day like her house better than mine. I can't say enough about how grateful I am to have found her, and how relaxed I feel when leaving Boone. We both get vacay as a result of this service.
Shari's team was great. They did an in-home check-in for my dogs while I was out of town. Probably saved my couch from being sawdust when I got home!
Shari and her family are awesome. Boone was so happy and she sent me regular texts and photos to keep my mind at ease.
Great as always!
Nummy clearly forgot to miss us while he was with another family. They clearly gave him attention and card during our absence. We will ask them to watch him again.
I felt totally at ease leaving my doggie with Shari and her family. He was treated like one of their own with kindness and attention.
We love taking Winston over to Shari's! He is looked after just like one of the family and we really appreciate how Shari and her family take the time to interact with our sweet older dog. When her oldest child finds out that Winston is is there he will even make a special trip to the family home to see Winston. :)
Treated our dog Winston like family! Will be using again soon!
Winston had a great time!
Very caring! Great folks and they love their guest dogs just like family.
Our 13 year old Westie- Winston had a wonderful weekend at Shari's home. She and her family made Winston feel like part of their family. Paying attention to him, lots of tummy rubs, combing and even cleaning his ears with the cleaner we tucked in his box "just incase" and also giving him the opportunity to rest when he needed it. They have a sweet older little dog L.E. who became Winston's buddy. We will be having Winston stay at Shari's home again in just a few weeks! We are very pleased.
