Cheryl has been watching our dogs for two years now and we don't know what we would do without her. She is caring, professional and trustworthy, which makes traveling much more enjoyable since we know our dogs are well taken care of while we're gone. Stephanie-Carmel Valley

I can't say enough good things about Cheryl, the owner of Pet Sitter San Diego. She loves my dog, and honestly, I think my dog loves her more than me!! You should see my dog's enthusiasm when she gets to be with Cheryl!! I have confidence that "Stephanie" will be well cared for each day. What a relief for my busy life! Cheryl is also a mom and I've seen how she is raising her family...oh so well...which includes her own dog and cat. She is totally trustworthy and her work ethic is beyond reproach. You couldn't ask for a better situation in caring for your pets. I HIGHLY recommend her.

"Cheryl Arthur has taken great care of our dog, Callie, for several years whenever we are out of town. We have always had peace of mind
knowing that Callie would be well taken care of while we were away.
Cheryl possesses a strong love for dogs. We well remember the time she took into her home a neighbor's dog who was not getting the proper
care when its owner had left the country for a job related trip. Cheryl volunteered to walk the dog as often as she could at no charge and eventually took the animal into her home to live permanently.
Cheryl's rates are very reasonable when compared to others, but more importantly, we are always grateful to have such a responsible and loving person like Cheryl to care for our Callie. Callie is grateful as well!"

The kitties were fine when we got home last monday morning. Yes, Suki did miss us - she said so - but they had a great time with you. No hard feelings from either of them - they were just normal! Thank you so much. As we told you this was our first time leaving them and it means the world to us that we now have someone we can rely on who our kitties love and who does such a great job. We will for sure be calling you again soon and recommending you to our friends.
Thank you, thank you, thank you,
Christa and Mara Torrey Hills
Thank you so much for helping us on such short notice. What a relief to know you were taking care of our cats during such a stressful time. You’re the best! L.H. Carmel Valley
Cheryl Arthur from Pet Sitter San Diego has been such a great resource for my family. We travel often, and it's nice to know that Cheryl will not only be sure that our cat has fresh food and water, but that she will take time to pet him. He loves the extra attention when we're gone. She brings in the mail and the newspaper also, which makes me feel safer about leaving. I would highly recommend her services. Donna
Thanks so much for watching Radar & Millie! I was impressed with your daily log, and also that Millie let you pet her! We'll definitely use you again on our next trip.
I am writing to share my experience with Cheryl, who has taken great care of our family dog since September 2011. We had just brought our new yellow lab puppy Buckeye (B) home and were in need to someone we could trust who would be willing to walk our puppy every day and help her get acclimated to her new home. I found Cheryl after contacting several San Diego pet care individuals and companies. Cheryl was by far the most caring person I spoke to concerning Buckeye's needs, as well as running a licensed and insured business. We were excited to hear that Buckeye would fit into her daily schedule. The day of the pet consultation you can imagine our horror when soon after meeting Cheryl Buckeye fell sick and threw up everywhere! Cheryl handled the entire situation like the professional she is and we just knew she would be a perfect match for our B. I highly recommend Cheryl as a pet sitter and dog walker. She has been a great help to my family, and also important, Buckeye loves her as well. Jena & Steve Carmel Valley
Cheryl was great with Killer! She demonstrated care and regard for both my home and my pet, which are both important considerations when hiring a sitter. She checked in with me daily and I like that she offers a variety of ways to communicate, texting being my preference. She even texted me a picture of Killer and it gave me a sense of relief to "see" him so happy while I was away! I would happily recommend her services!
"She provides very reliable service, even when I'm out of town and on short notice. She even prevented a water leak catastrophe, for which I'm very grateful!" Richard Torrey Hills
I have been with pet sitter san diego for almost two years. I am so pleased with its service - Ms. Arthur in particular is reliable, honest, friendly, and most importantly, a true pet lover. She treats her clients, I mean the four-footed clients too, like family. I highly recommend her to you. BJA Carmel Valley
“It’s a relief to know that my dogs are cared for by the kind, caring, reliable professionals at Pet Sitter San Diego when I’m gone. Scheduling is made easy by great communication, response time and their reliability makes it worry free.” SB Carmel Valley
Cheryl is a professional who offers top rate pet care, and will work out a schedule that fits the pet and owner's needs. She offered shorter visits which were perfect for our cat, as well as longer visits. It was nice to arrive home to a happy kitty. Pixie enjoyed Cheryl's care, as did we. Carla Carmel Valley
"We have used Cheryl to look after Riley on several occasions while away. It is nice to know that someone so caring and reliable is looking after our family pet. We are able to relax while away on our trips." Brigitte Carmel Valley
"We've used many dog sitters and no one earnestly cares for our beloved Shih Tzu like the dog walkers of Pet Sitter San Diego. The real proof of their loving attention is from our dog who absolutely adores them. Pet Sitters has never missed an appointment in the three years we've used them and are great at communicating the daily going-ons with your dog." Darius- Del Sur
Several years ago we became acquainted with Pet Sitter San Diego and with Cheryl when we needed someone to look after our cats while we were away. We had used a pet hotel prior but our animals hated it and became very ill. We were informed, in no uncertain terms, not to bring them back to the hotel – which, along the vet bills from the experience, we did not need to be told.
Pet Sitter San Diego to the rescue. Reliable, helpful (will deal with mail, newspapers, watering plants), honest and trustworthy. A highlight are the written daily reports where the odd behavior of our cat is faithfully documented.
Pet Sitter San Diego is an asset to our community! Chris Carmel Valley
When Cheryl first cared for our two dogs, Rosie and Scout, they were well passed middle age, and Rosie was recovering from serious illness. Cheryl came to the house several times a day to feed and walk them, but also to give Rosie her medications and to play vigorously with Scout. She kept a daily doggie journal that documented what took place with each visit. Cheryl is a detail-oriented, responsible, trustworthy and loving caregiver. She is absolutely the best pet sitter in San Diego. -Ainslie Uhl- Carmel Valley
"You need to have a lot of trust to have someone come into your home and care for a cherished pet and I trust Cheryl completely! She is responsive, communicative, professional and responsible. Most importantly, she genuinely cares for my dog and he loves her! Whenever I am out of town I am at ease because I know my dog is in such great hands!" Christa Carmel Valley
"Cheryl has taken care of my dog, Pepper, many times and I am so grateful to be able to call on her. I love that my dog can stay in his own home, rather than in a kennel, and he gets walked and fed just as if I were here. Cheryl works her schedule around Pepper's normal routine, which makes me comfortable when I am away. My dog is especially difficult since he doesn't like many people, but Cheryl is one of the few that he loves. I also look forward to her "doggie diary" when I get home...she records everything that happened." Jill S. Carmel Valley
I want to take a moment to thank you very much for taking great care of Bear, Poppy & Rose. I am so relieved I don’t have to take all of them to the kennel and see them get stressed out. I have such peace of mind knowing that they can be at home in their own environment, safe and happy and cared for with walks and hugs. I am very happy with your professional service and grateful for the caring animal lover you are. Thanks again for all you do. Jan D.- Carmel Valley
Cheryl is the best, my girls love their walks and there is no one I would trust more with my girls. She is professional, kind and great with my dogs, all 200 pounds of them!
"Cheryl is a very patient and nice pet sitter. We won't feel comfortable for trip without her to take care of our very old dog. She followed our instructions very detailed. We will definitely recommend her to our friends!! " Anita & Ted- Carmel Valley
I've been using Cheryl Arthur for several years to watch my two cats when I travel, and I have the utmost faith that when I am out of town, they are well taken care of. Cheryl always leaves a note with input on the cat's behavior and lets me know she has taken time to pet and play with them while here. I sometimes travel last minute, and she has always been able to accommodate me. I highly recommend her services! Cindi Del Mar
Thank you so much for the wonderful time and attention you give our pups each and every day. It gives me such peace of mind knowing they are in your care. I know our little guys look forward to seeing you every day for their walk and I love coming home to read the daily notes. You are wonderful Cheryl and I don’t know what we would do without you!!!
