Our puppy Cooper had a great stay with Sharlyn! It was his first time staying with someone else over night and Sharlyn really put us at ease. She was very responsive to messages and accommodating to our pick-up and drop-off timeline. We got regular photo updates that made it clear our pup was settling in comfortably and having a good time! When we picked him up, Sharlyn had helpfully packed up his crate and all ...

Sharlyn was terrific with Emily, who came home happy and healthy. Sharlyn kept me posted with pictures and updates, and her home was well set up for boarding. I will definitely request that Sharlyn board Emily the next time I travel. Wonderful experience.

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. 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 indoor surveillance cameras.
