About Me

Hi, I'm Sheryl! I have always been a pet lover and have owned dogs and cats for my entire life. When I was a child, my mother worked in the veterinary department at The Ohio State University, and often brought home animals for us to “adopt.” As an adult, my husband and I have owned four Golden Retrievers and some mixed breeds. My current baby is a Golden Retriever named Brantley (pictured with me). I have taken numerous dog training classes over the years with many of my dogs, and have studied obedience training and other dog-related issues.

My passions in life are my family, which includes my pets; photography; swimming; walking; and watching sporting events. All the pictures on my website are ones I’ve taken. Any time I’m caring for your pets, I would love to send you pictures and/or add them to my website blog.

I am bonded, insured, and have received a full background check from Pet Sitters International.

We have trusted Sheryl to take care of our Bichon, Maggie, since September of 2010. We have used her services frequently and without concern. It is obvious that Sheryl loves keeping Maggie and Maggie feels like she is one of the family. While leaving a pet for a week or longer can be stressful for an owner and it can be difficult for the pet, Maggie actually gets excited when we head toward Sheryl’s home. She looks forward to the stay with no stress for her. We have used other services, kennels, etc., but nothing can compare to what Sheryl provides. Sheryl is very experienced, professional, flexible, and takes pride in the services she offers. We highly recommend Sheryl… she does an excellent job!

We love having Sheryl take care of our rescued dog Nita. Sheryl is loving, responsive and reliable. It is evident that she truly cares for Nita and her comfort and security. We have complete confidence in Sheryl being in our home if we have to be away. One of the first things we do is read her detailed reports of her walks and playtime with Nita. It is just as obvious that Nita loves Sheryl too. Thank you Sheryl!

Sheryl has been caring for our dog, a Havanese, Jake for about 4 years. We are very fortunate to have found Sheryl. We can now go on vacation or take trips to visit relatives and know that Jake is in good hands with Sheryl. Jake is treated like family in Sheryl’s home and is given lots of love and attention.
We really enjoy receiving photos and videos of Jake enjoying himself while in Sheryl’s care.
We highly recommend Sheryl as a caregiver for your special pet. She is a very caring, reliable and experienced caregiver.Jake is always anxious to go to Sheryl’s and is happy when we pick him up. We often think that he has better vacations then we do when he is at Sheryl’s.
