About Sharon

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi. My name is Sharon McAllister, and I live in east Bradenton. Like everyone on DogVacay, I'm a true dog lover and a total sucker for their furry faces. I have 4 of my own that range from 8 pounds to 60 pounds (ages 6 to 14), and if not for my husband putting his foot down, I'd probably have one or two more. Like most dog owners, I feel like my dogs are part of the family (because they are!), and if they could talk--I mean, if we could understand them--they'd tell you that they're treated that way. Actually, I take that back. They're really treated even better than family. Whenever we bring a new one into the fold, you'll even hear my husband telling them, "You don't know it yet, but you just won the dog lotto."

I have decided to dog sit outside my home only because my husband and I believe it would be easier not only on our dogs, but on yours, as well, since we have so many. But please rest assured and know that just as I'll treat your dog as if he were my own, I'll treat your home the same way. I also guarantee that your property and your privacy will be completely respected. I don't smoke, so you don't have to worry that I'll try to corrupt your baby. ;) I do work a full-time job during the week, but I'd be able to head home during my lunch to give your baby some attention, some time to see to his personal needs, as well as a midday snack. And when I'm not working, my time will be spent doing everything I can to make your dog dread seeing you come home, but only because he's enjoyed his time with me so much! But seriously, I know it's never easy to go away and leave a pet at home, but I hope you'll feel better about leaving him knowing he's happier being in his own environment and that he's in excellent and loving hands.

Thank you so much for reading my profile. If you have any questions or concerns at all, please don't hesitate to share them with me. I look forward to meeting you and your baby soon!

Sharon truly cares about animals and is wonderful with all types of animals, especially dogs. She has taken care of multiple animals at once and always ensures that they all receive excellent care and plenty of attention. She has rescued a number of dogs over the years and they were/are very lucky to have been given such a wonderful home.

Sharon would be a wonderful dog sitter because she loves animals. She's always spoiling and accommodating her own fur babies. Always patient and with a soft spot for dogs, she'll love anyone's dog as her own!

I've known Sharon for over 15 years, and she's had at least one dog that whole time, but usually more! She has rescued/adopted several over the years, young and old! Whenever I see her with them, she's so good to them, loving but in charge! She also talks about each of them in such a way that you know she not only provides for them, she pays genuine attention to them - she knows each one, with all of their cute quirks, likes and dislikes. I would trust my 2 beloved doggies with her at any time, and if I ever had to give them up, she would honestly be the first person I would ask to take them in!
