I would have to say Sharlyn & Dave are great on sitting dogs, on the meet & greet, we felt immediately trustworthy leaving my puppy with Sharlyn, they are very knowledgeable about dog sitting. They sent updates and photos while we're away, Thank you! During the stay, Gia had accidentally ate something she shouldn't, Sharlyn & Dave took it seriously, took Gia to the vet at first action to make sure Gia was ok, very ...

Sharlyn did an amazing job with our often difficult dog Banban. She wasn’t fazed at all when we told her Banban wouldn’t let new people pet her. After a day we we’re getting pictures of our dog snuggling and being pet as if she’d known Sharlyn for weeks- a miracle! We will definitely ask Sharlyn to care for Banban in the future.

A Couple That Will Provide 24/7 TLC

Hi there! First off, thank you for considering us (Sharlyn and Dave) to take care of your fur baby(s).
Secondly, this profile was originally generated by me, Sharlyn (pronounced Charlene), so most of the interactions will be between me and you, the owner.

Thirdly, we usually board two to three clients at a time, so there's a high chance that there will be other dogs present that will overlap some dates.

What Sharlyn would like to know about your dog

I always recommend setting up a meet and greet prior to the dates booked, so I can get to know the animal(s). That way, I can also get to know you, the owner, better as well. Meet and greets are also a great time for key hand-offs and a quick home tour, just so I will know where to find the essentials for your pet(s). If you have small dogs or cats, please show me where you keep their pet carriers, in case of emergencies. Please leave an emergency contact information, as well as your current vet's information. Please also list any allergies and/or dietary restrictions that I should know about. Same goes for any types of medication. If there is a specific route or park that you prefer me to go, I would like to know that as well. Any tips or tricks will also help!

Please note: I will charge an additional $10 for one-way travels if it requires me to pick up a key.

When Sharlyn watches your pet

I have a small, fenced in backyard for quick potty breaks, and Balboa Park is walking distance from my home. For playtime and good behavior, I have heavy duty rubber balls and toys, and soft bite-sized treats (I use Blue Buffalo). They are welcome on the two couches in the living room, and I also provide plenty of plush blankets that I wash after each dog.

My home is "dog-proof", meaning that I do have a crate that I will use for timeouts and such. I also have a dog gate that I use to separate the living room and the kitchen, and I keep all the doors to the bathroom and bedrooms closed at all times. Dogs that are taken in are closely and heavily monitored at all times, either with my presence, my partner's, or our petcam.
