I stay at home all day..I live in a safe tree lined neighbourhood, close to Santana Row..I have a beautiful park close by to take your dog for a nice walk..or a lovely dog park..depends on what your dog likes..I sometimes take them for a stroll in dog friendly Santana Row which always has fresh water avail for pups..after our stroll we usually sit outside at a cafe where the dogs always get ton's of attention by admiring passers-by..I love animals and they always have a great time with me..I don't have pet's of my own so I take your pets as my family..I adore each dog I look after, and am always sad to see them go.. each one has a special place in my heart..the good thing is they always come back I give daily texts and pic so you can see how much fun your pup is having giving you peace of mind!

After going through more than 15 profiles and meeting about 3-4 host from the dogvay site, we decided to go with Sharon. Sharon is an unique host because she is one of the few host on dogvacy that takes one dog at a time and this was perfect for our dog since she doesn't care to social much with other dogs and prefers 100% attention from humans around her.

We were quite nervous about leaving her since it was the first time and we were on vacation out of the country. Sharon was great, she text message updates and sends pics on a daily. She is a warm and caring person and there is no doubt she loves dogs. Our dog cannot go off-leash so it was important that we leave her with someone who understood the cat-like personality in a dog's body (pretty typical shiba personality). :)

Since this is our first time using Sharon, I rated 4 stars instead of 5 stars and will change to 5 stars after using her again in the future after continuous great service. We would leave our dog with Sharon again and has already recommended to her friends.

What can I say, Sharon is awesome. Sharon took great care of Godiva while I was away on business. Sharon was attentive to Godiva's needs and gave her love during the 4 days they spent together. Sharon normally just takes care of one dog which is perfect for me and probably for a lot of other pet owners out there.

Sharon was very good in sending me pictures of their daily activities and texted or called me if there was a slight change in Godiva's eating habits.

I must admit that I was hesitant on leaving Godiva but Sharon really put me at ease. I have great confidence in Sharon and will have her watch Godiva on my next trip.

I recommend Sharon to everyone (just not on the dates I need her to watch Godiva!)

Sharon took excellent care of our older dog. It was clear that he received loving personal attention. We would definitely leave him with her again!
Before leaving our Welsh Terrier with Sharon, we drove over to her place with our dog and explained in great detail all of Gruffy's foibles. While listening to us, she played with him. Our impression was that she was a very caring, responsible and dog loving person. We also called one of Sharon's references.
So we decided to have Gruffy stay with her for a week. It was also very important that she only took care of one animal at a time at her cottage. We left him and a detailed sheet with phone numbers and his daily routine along with his special food and medication.
We received daily photos and updates on Gruffy's health and activities.
Before I arrived to pick him up, she had washed his bedding and bowls. I was grateful that he remembered me and was ready to come home after such nice treatment.
Thanks Sharon for taking such good care of him. We will definitely give you a call, when Gruffy needs a home away from home.

Sharon was a perfect match for our dog Roxie. She loved Sharon the moment she met her and had a great stay. Sharon kept us updated with text/pictures and we had no doubt Roxie was in great hands. We will definitely be using her again in the future for watching our spoiled dog.

Our dog loved Sharon, and we loved all the frequent updates she sent us! Our pup will definitely be staying there again.
My beloved bulldog Charlotte had a wonderful time with Sharon. She got lots of love and attention, which is just what she needs to make her happy! I felt very secure leaving knowing Charlotte was in such capable hands.
My experience with Sharon could not have been better! She is so warm and caring and obviously loves animals. I dropped my pup Olivia off to stay with Sharon and I think Olivia had a better vacation than I did! She wasn't even all that excited to see me when I returned! I take that as the best sign that she was loved and cared for. Daily pics were sent to me, which I loved! 5 stars for Sharon, the "Dog Whisperer"!!!
