About Cheryl:

As a Reiki practitioner with shelter, grooming, kennel, dog day care, animal hospital, and cattery experience, it is my priority to ensure that your furry family members and home will be held in the utmost love and safety while you are away.

I began offering extended stay pet sitting in 2011 while living on Long Island, NY, where my discriminating clients ranged from the Hamptons to Sands Point. When your animals are in my charge, you can be sure that they are receiving not only LOVE, but professional and expert care.

I also offer in-home grooming and bathing, poop scooping, pet taxi services, and domestic services during my stay with your animals, so please inquire regarding needs and options.

*Years of experience working with animals in various professional situations

*Trained in in dog handling & leash training with at Southampton Animal Shelter

*Menageries and tough cookies welcome: I have been involved in feral cat rescue and have owned & cared for reptiles, amphibians, and freshwater fish.

Why I love dog sitting
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 as a child! 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.

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

What Cheryl needs to know about your dog

Temperament, health issues (medications, age, habits), and your dog's standard schedule. I am comfortable with all breeds toy to giant, including "bully breeds" - I <3 Pits!

When Cheryl cares for your dog in your home

Time I'll spend with your dog
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.

Extra house-sitting services
Yes - my service includes minor plant maintenance and mail service if requested.

Our pets were in good hands with Cheryl! She took excellent care of our dog, cat, and guinea pigs over Christmas. Ziggy in particular was sad to see her go.

Cheryl was excellent. She cared for Banzai our pug while we were out of town for several days. I would recommend Cheryl to anyone in need of a dog walker / sitter.

Cheryl was able to watch our two dachshunds on incredibly short notice and did a fantastic job! Highly recommended to anyone in the atlanta area!

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.
