About Cheryl R.:

I am a professional Animal Caretaker with shelter, groomery, kennel, dog day care, animal hospital, and cattery experience. I have been doing extended stay pet sitting for my clients since 2011 and have multiple professional references if requested. When your animals are in my charge, you can be sure that they are receiving not only LOVE, but professional and expert care.

My service also includes, if desired:
-Basic home maintenance (plant watering, mail, garbage)
-Regular photo and video updates of your pets (if client has a cell phone with such capability)

I also offer grooming services, poop scooping, and pet taxi services during my stay with your animals. Please inquire about options and cost.

A little about me outside of my work with animals: I am a dedicated yoga practitioner, a performing and teaching flow dancer, a poet, and passionately dedicated to the welfare of our natural world.

Cheryl R.'s Experience:

*Years of experience working with animals in various professional situations

*Course completion in dog handling/training with accredited teachers

*I have been involved in feral cat rescue for years and have owned/cared for reptiles, amphibians, and fish - menageries welcome!

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

I've been a dog lover my entire life - I was always the one to walk up to any and every dog on the street! I naturally gravitated toward working with dogs. I have worked in medical, shelter, grooming, and care taking environments and lived in multi-dog households. I have also spent considerable time volunteering as a walker and handler/trainer for local animal shelters.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

Temperament, health issues (medications, age, habits), and your dog's standard schedule. I am comfortable with all breeds toy to giant, but I am particularly fond of pit bulls and spaniels, with a soft spot for mixed breeds and rescues!

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

Yes, I own a reliable and legal vehicle.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Yes, I am comfortable and experienced in administering oral and injected medications (such as insulin for diabetic animals).

Are you willing to do additional tasks at my home while I'm away
(e.g., water plants, bring in the mail)?

Yes - my service includes plant maintenance and mail service if requested.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

I will be with your dog for hours each day during the course of walks, feeding time, play, and relax/cuddle time. This time will be spaced throughout the day - morning, day, and evening.

If your looking for a reliable, caring and trustworthy pet sitter, look no further then Cheryl! She goes above and beyond what is asked of her and she has years of experience behind her! You will be very satisfied with her service.

Cheryl recently stayed at the house and took care of two dogs and two cats. She was GREAT! I am so glad I found someone who loves animals so much and is willing to stay in the home.

I have been using Cheryl's doggie sitting services for over a year now, and find myself consistently satisfied. She is competent, capable and compassionate. I like the fact that she is willing to watch my dogs at my home. The doggies are more comfortable in their own space, (and my plants and fish don't die either!). My 3 dogs vary from a 25 lb pure bred firecracker, to a 50 lb couch potato and an 80 pound bully rescue, and Cheryl handles them all with ease and treats them all with the same loving kindness…they love her. I have simply never had a problem with her work. My advice is to use Cheryl's services now before she realizes that she could be charging double the price!! (Collapse)
