About Cheryl

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dogs are family-my home is theirs.

I am a retired teacher who has had dogs for over 30 years. I recently lost a 17 1/2-year-old Golden and have decided to dog sit as a way to share my love for dogs. I look forward to spending time with your canine family members. Dogs seem to sense that I will watch out for them, and they gravitate toward me. My experience includes caring for blind pets as well as seniors and puppies.

Your pet will enjoy our hideaway on Siesta Key. Our home is located on a pond which has an abundance of birds, turtles, and fish that your dog will enjoy watching. The neighborhood is off the beaten track. Dogs will be walked around our pet-friendly neighborhood where they will make friends with other canine residents. There are many places beyond the neighborhood where we can go on longer walks and still avoid the cars and congestion of the beach. Your dog's safety is my primary concern. If your pet does not enjoy the company of others, I will ensure that he gets a walk without "visiting." I have years of experience with both types of dogs-the very social ("Come on, we need to keep walking") to the anti-social (barking and pulling the leash). I can accommodate both personalities. Our yard is not completely fenced, as we live on a pond and like to enjoy the view. Dogs are always taken out on a leash when needed, and will enjoy a quick walk by the pond (in addition to a much longer walk during their stay).


My husband works full time, but he will be around when your pet stays with us. He is a retired police officer and has a heart of gold when it comes to dogs. He used to get up every night at 3:00am (without complaint) to feed our Dalmatian in her senior years.

We have both dedicated our lives to serving others, and see pet-sitting as an enjoyable extension of that experience.

Your pet will be treated like a member of our household. We have a large lanai and ample room indoors for them to roam. I will never take more than two dogs, so your pet will get the attention that they deserve.

If you choose to have me visit your pet in your own home, my goal will be to give them the love and attention that they are used to when you are with them.

Overnights guests typically "check in" in the afternoon, and are picked up in the afternoon as well. Exceptions must be agreed to prior to booking. Please check with me first prior to booking. Day care hours are 12:00 to 8:00pm.

I am so pleased with the care Cheryl gave to my dog Rosie while I was away. She provided a loving and safe environment and updated me on Rosie's progress with daily photos.

Since Rosie isn't always social with other dogs, I appreciated that Cheryl only sits for one dog at a time unless they are part of the same family. I was relaxed knowing Rosie was in great hands.

I highly recommend Cheryl as a pet sitter and will definitely use her again the next time I am away.

Tyson had loads of fun with Cheryl. He looked very comfortable and happy in the picture updates! I would 100% recommend Cheryl to watch your pup!
Cheryl is a great dog sitter.We used her for our Aussie that does not like being separated from us. She was wonderful with him. She was so easy to work with, answering all requests promptly. Her love for dogs is obvious and we highly recommend her.Thanks Cheryl!
