About Cheryl

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**UPDATE** As of August 15, 2016 I will be suspending my services indefinitely.** Hi, my name is Cheryl and I would love to have your furry kid come over and play with my kid Topher. We live in Independence, MO along with Gracie the cat. I have a large yard for your kid or kids to come and hang out in, with lots of room to play and run. Topher loves having friends to play with and we have plenty of squeaky toys for everyone.Rest assured that I will treat your babies as I would my own. I want them to be secure and comfortable during their stay. Currently I do not work outside the home, so your pup(s) will be supervised 24/7. Your pup(s) need to be housebroken and not inclined to "mark" their territory, Your pup(s) cannot be aggressive towards other dogs or cats. I would prefer a weight limit of 30 pounds, but we can accommodate larger dogs too, Give us a call!

Cheryl was great! She kept me updated during the entire vacation. I felt very safe with her watching my dog.
Teddy Bear had a wonderful time at Cheryl's house, as always! She is very sweet and loving with him, and he enjoys playing with her little dog Topher and being able to run out into her large fenced yard and chase the squirrels! I don't hesitate to leave my baby with her, b/c I know that she will always take good care of him and make sure that he is happy and safe while I'm away.
My 11 month old husky/lab Bear love staying with Cheryl! He came home happy and worn out.
Cheryl responded quickly and was very flexible in regards to when we dropped off and picked up. She took great care of our pup, I would happily use her again!
Jackson loves Cheryl and so do I. She shows great affection for him and he gets excited when we turn on her street. So glad I found her!!!
Cheryl was very accommodating of our pets' needs. Both our dogs stayed with her for 10 days and one of them was a puppy at the time who was still learning to be house broken. The other one is older and has dietary restrictions.
When we picked them up they both seemed happy to be there.
I recommend her.
Our dogs Bud and Sadie had a big yard with shade trees to play in and had a great experience at Cheryl's. Cheryl provided me with an update as usual.
Cheryl is the BEST!! I don't leave my boys with anyone but her and Toffer I know that they are in the BEST care possible!! She keeps me informed daily with a text of how they are doing! I TOTALLY recommend Toffers Place for your furbaby to stay!!
We used Cheryl for a second time and my pup had another wonderful time! Thank you!
We picked up Leo this morning from Cheryl's house and his DogVacay. What a wonderful experience. We had been leaving him at a kennel when we were out of town and he always came back to us looking frantic, stressed and tense. Today when we arrived at Cheryl's he was looking at us through the back yard fence with his tail wagging -- and new friends around him. He was glad to see us, but it was obvious he had enjoyed himself -- and we definitely did not feel guilty for leaving him locked in a cage. He will for sure be going back to Cheryl's any time we need to leave him in the future. Thanks Cheryl, and DogVacay!
Cheryl was great! She has a very large backyard where the dogs can play and have fun. Topher is so cute and friendly. You can tell Cheryl loves dogs and likes to take good care of them. Not only she took great care of my babies, but sent me pictures of them!
Bud and Sadie always has a great time at Cheryl's playing in her large yard with Roper. They seem right at home at her place.
Teddy Bear has a great time whenever he goes to Cheryl's house! He loves to play with her little dog Topher, and this time there were some other dogs too, so he had lots of fun. He also likes to run outside and chase the little squirrels, so when he came home he was so tired he slept for hours! Cheryl is great with the dogs, and we will be happy to book her for Teddy Bear again!
Wow! I am so pleased with the experience my pups and I had with Cheryl. She is so accommodating and I felt very comfortable leaving my pups for the first time. When I picked them up they were happy, healthy and very well taken care of. I would highly recommend Cheryl. I will use her again.
Cheryl and Toffer were absolutely wonderful hosts to and for our 2 boys! The boys were very nervous about us leaving them there as they argot used to us leaving them and had only met Cheryl and Toffer once before, Cheryl was very good about texting me to let me know that they had warmed up to them and were outside playing and adjusting well, talk about easing a furmommas mind!! We already have Cheryl and Toffer booked for just shy of a week in June!! Thank you Cheryl and Toffer we look forward to seeing you again soon!!n
Cheryl was great with Teddy Bear, and he loved to play with Topher and chase the squirrels! I think he was a little bit sad to come home, as Cheryl's house is much more exciting!
Our first experience with DogVacay was with Cheryl and it was very positive. We did the meet and greet a few days before we went out of town and we all agreed it would be a good place for Bella for a few days while we were attending out son’s wedding. Cheryl opens her house to her canine guests and has a nice size dog secure back yard. You can tell she is a dog lover. Bella and Cheryl’s dog Topher got along great. We will have Bella stay at Cheryl’s next time we go out of town and high recommend her.
I love leaving my Jackson with Cheryl. And he loves the great care he gets there!
My fiancé and I are new dog owners so we were nervous about leaving our puppy, Lily. Cheryl sent us updates and photos which helped our anxiety. She was great with Lily and we've used her a few times after our first visit. She always comes home tired after running around the yard.
Cheryl was such a good caretaker to our dog kids. Not sure they were so good for her. She kept us up to date on their activities & how they were behaving. We loved her home & yard. She was so tidy & warm hearted. Hopefully the crazy white boxers didnt wear their welcome out. Thanks Topher for letting the white dogs take over for awhile.
Cheryl was wonderful with Teddy Bear! She sent us emails and pictures of our little guy almost every day, and he seemed to be having a good time with her and her little dog Topher. Teddy Bear was happy that she had a doggy door so he could go out and chase squirrels whenever he wanted. (He doesn't have that opportunity at home!) We would definitely recommend Cheryl as a loving and competent dog sitter, and we plan to use her services again.
We are very pleased with our little dog's care while we were gone and will definitely use Cheryl again. We received pictures while we were gone and could tell our little Rosie was having a good time and was well cared for. Cheryl was awesome!
Thank you Cheryl for taking such good care of our 2 older pups. Larry
Cheryl was great for Max and us . She sent a couple of updates during the week, that were comforting.
Cheryl has a kindness and warmness about her. She is very loving towards animals and took such great care of my pet. She kept me current on how my pet was doing, which made me feel so much better. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
My elderly dogs are always relaxed when I pick them up. Cheryl obviously takes good care of them. Thank you Cheryl.
Cheryl was great! This was our first time using Dog Vacay and she was extremely helpful and sent update texts during Sasha's stay. Sasha cried after leaving so I know she must have enjoyed it!
Nice location; large fenced in back yard. Cheryl is a wonderfully nice person and very good with the dogs. In fact, she was so good, my dog, Sophie, was not her normal self when she returned. She missed being at Cheryl's! Only took her a day to bounce back, but it let my wife and I know that Sophie enjoyed her stay with Cheryl. Definitely recommend her! Thanks Cheryl!
We left our little Jackson with Cheryl for 4 nights. Our meet and greet was very positive so I felt great about leaving him in her care.

Cheryl sent me a pic and texted me every day with updates. Her home is dog friendly complete with hardwood floors and a doggie door. She has a huge fenced in back yard.

Cheryl is very warm and caring. Jackson had a great time and I was at ease.
Cheryl was great with my 2 older pups. She is very good with them and they appear to have enjoyed their stay. Thank you, Cheryl..
great as always. layla is always so happy to go to her house. really happy we found Cheryl!
Thanks to Cheryl. She is a great host for my puppies. They are elder dogs and were welcomed by Cheryl and they seem happy to have been on vacay with her and her pup. Thanks again, Cheryl.
She is very good with our dogs and has a wonderful back yard to play in.
We had never left our 11 yr. old Jazzy with anyone other than family, so we were a little nervous about this. After we met Cheryl at a meet-and-greet we felt a little better about leaving him. We just got back today and we feel Jazzy was cared for well. So, we would recommend her to any one that needs a competent dog-sitter.
My puppy dogs really enjoyed their stay at Cheryl's home. I appreciate her sending me test message to keep me informed on how they are eating and if they were actively playing or sleeping. They seem to be very comfortable with her and Topher. I can count on her to give them personal attention so they feel at home. Very satisfied. Thank you Cheryl!
I believe she did a good job. Forgot to bring dog food and she picked up some for Dolly.
This was our first time using and feel so lucky to have found Cheryl. We will definitely use her again in the future! Our pup had a great time and was well taken care of. It was so nice to not have to worry about her while we were enjoying our weekend away with family. Thanks so much, Cheryl!
I am very pleased with our puppy dogs stay at Cheryl ' s. She has a good size yard where they played. She ketp me informed frequently on how they were doing. I appreciated her letting me know they were getting along with her dog Topher and how they did with eating. I will definitely see if she is available when we have a need in the future.
great as usual! plus we gave her short notice but it was no problem. wouldn't use anyone else!!!
so glad we found Cheryl! now we can go without any worries, layla has a ball, she cant wait to get in the door!
this is the third time I have used Cheryl and layla loves it there. she couldn't wait to get to the glad we found her!
we needed somebody to watch our dog at the last minute, I contacted Cheryl and she was more then happy to do it. she took good care of layla. layla had a good time.!!!
