I have always been a dog lover and have been around dogs my whole life! We have a Golden Retriever named Oliver. He has completed obedience training to get his Canine Good Citizen certificate! He is also a Therapy Dog and enjoys doing therapy work at hospitals, schools and libraries. Oliver loves other dogs and looks forward to having a friend to play with!

We have a large house on 4.5 acres with a nice fenced-in back yard and plenty of space to run and play.

All dogs need to be current on their vaccinations, and flea/tick preventative. All adult dogs need to be spayed or neutered. Please send me a picture of your dogs shot record through the rover app.

For your dogs safety, I do separate dogs while they are eating, when I am away from home and at night, so please bring your dog's crate.

Overnight boarding is $35 for adult dogs and $40 for puppies (any dog under one year old). This is for a 24 hour period. There will be an additional day care fee of $30 for adult dogs and $35 for puppies for pick up day if pick up is later than the drop off time. Ex- drop off at 9:00 am on drop off day and pick up later than 9:00 am on pick up day.

Holiday rates for boarding are $40 for adult dogs and $45 for puppies. An additional daycare fee of $35 if pick up time is later than drop off time for adult dogs and $40 for puppies.

Taking care of and loving animals has always been a passion of mine and I truly believe they are part of the family and livelihood. Over time, I discovered how stressful it is to find someone to care for our fur-babies. After retiring from my corporate accounting career, I decided to share my animal compassion with others. I am a full time sitter plus own/operate a professional pet sitting business.. I offer flexible options with personalized care and welcome you to discuss your pet needs with me.

Sit, Stay & Play back in the Burg!Fredericksburg, VA

Your dog will enjoy, comfy beds (feel free to bring their own), walks 3-4 times a day and outdoor playtime!

Routines, of course, will be catered to whatever your furbaby is used to; early mornings or late nights, your pups stay will be as relaxing as possible.

I understand the rush and added stress with traveling and packing; I would be happy to transport your pup for you from your home to my home and my home to your home if needed.

I have one pooch a very energetic, welcoming, vivacious, intelligent Beagle named Winston. Winston LOVES every dog he meets. He loves the companionship and would be happy to have other doggies come play with him for a few days :)

Please feel free to message me for any more details!

About this sitter:

I am a retired professional looking for full-time pet sitting opportunities. I have lived in the Fredericksburg area for the majority of my life, and love it! I enjoy walking around downtown, going to DC or Richmond. My family is from Boston, and those that are still living there I love visiting and spending time with. The rest of my family migrated to Florida, to get out of the cold, so I spend time down South each year as well. I am very active; accomplished field hockey player both HS and College, Yoga, Swimming and Running (2 half marathons under my belt). I don't sit around much, I would rather be outside, reading, or arts & crafts.

I have been dog sitting for neighbors since I was in high school. Then when I came home from college I started working to build up clientele in the area. I have taken care of doggies that needed extra attention, medical treatment, long walks, or just normal day to day care.

Why I love dog sitting

I have loved dogs my whole life! When I was younger, my sister and I begged my parents for a Golden Retriever; finally one Easter, "Tucker" was left behind by the Easter Bunny. He was the best dog to grow up with, and miss him every day. Since Tucker, I have owned another Golden Retriever "Quincy", an Irish Wolfhound "Mac", and a Beagle "Winston"..

My experience administering medication

I have given medicine to plenty of my doggie friends! Mostly pill form, but I have had some experience with injections.

**OPEN DURING THE PANDEMIC-ALL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS TAKEN**

My name is Cheryl, I'm a mom of 6 kids, ages 21,18,13,12,11 & 2yrs old. Five of our kids are still at home ❤️. We have 3 friendly cats. Who usually hide in my bedroom when we’re watching dogs, so no worries if your fur baby isn’t a fan of cats! We’ve had plenty of dogs who supposedly ‘hated’ cats, but had no problems being in the house with them. Our family has boarded dogs for almost 4 years now, and we enjoy it very much! I'm available to board as long as you need, even if it's just for 1 day or 1 month. We treat all pets with lots of love and give lots of attention, as if they are our own! I make sure to keep you updated via messages & pics! We have a 6 ft. high wood fence that's chain locked at all times, with no gaps or loose boards! So no worries about your pet escaping. Your fur baby is able to roam free anywhere in my home, and sleep anywhere they want with no restrictions and no crates! If you want to bring your own crate, you may do so!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. You will not be disappointed with our care! ??

Thank you, Cheryl & Family

We love dogs!Fredericksburg, VA

We really love dogs. My family has owned as many as 4 at one time, but currently we only have one precious Golden Retriever named Bella. She is a typical Golden in that she adores everyone! She gets along with all dogs and loves to play. She is also very gentle with older dogs. We live in the country in a quiet neighborhood with one wooded street that is perfect for long walks. We also have a large fenced in backyard that the dogs are allowed to explore whenever they feel the urge. We have spent many hours throwing many balls for those dogs that live to fetch! We truly try to make your dog as comfortable in our home as they are in your home. You may bring toys, blankets, beds or anything else that makes your dog's stay more enjoyable.

Home away from HomeMontclair, VA

Let us provide a home away from home for your dog. Don't let your dog get depressed in a kennel. When your dog comes to our house he will be loved on, cared for and have a fun time while you are away. This is a family affair and our kids are involved in doggy care from picking up 'yard bombs' to feeding and walking.

We are a large fun family with a large fenced backyard for dogs to run around and play when we are at home. We can place gates strategically placed inside our house to help prevent escapes. Dogs are allowed in all areas of the home provided they do not have accidents upstairs on the carpet.

We do have activities that draw us away from the house but most times we are back home with in 4 hours. When we are watching multiple dogs from different families we do separate them while we are gone as a precaution.

Before beginning with Rover we had experience watching our friends dogs while they were away. I also grew up on a small farm and have some experience administering oral medication to animals. Now that we have been with Rover for over 3 years we have watched dogs from all sorts of backgrounds. From young to the very old. Special needs to high maintenance. We've learned much and we hope you'll trust us with your pooch.

Contact us today to schedule a meet and greet for your pet!

Please note

*For the safety of your dog and our family we do require a meet and greet

*We cannot care for un-spayed females even if you know their cycle

*We cannot accept aggressive breeds or dogs

*Our fence is only 3 ½ feet tall so we cannot accept jumpers

*We have littles who like to share with the dogs and cannot take any dogs with food allergies

*Dogs with high anxiety do not do well in our busy home

*Un-neutered males who mark inside cannot be accepted
