For The Love of Dogs, LLC

I was very happy to find Sheri, she is a true dog lover and takes amazing care of my two dogs. one of my dogs is slightly difficult to handle but, I have no worries with Sheri. Lacee wags her tail and goes with her no problem. Sheri will text over a picture, leave me information on treats that are best formy pets, and cares for each of them ,the way I would. I never worry about Charlie or Lacee when Sheri is around. Thank you so much for giving me "Peace of Mind" while I'm working. For The Love Of Dogs, Best Ever!!

Sheri is the best!! I have an eight year old Lab who is now finally mellowed out a bit. I also have a two year old puggle who is full of energy! They both love Sheri and enjoy her visits. I gives me great piece of mind to know that my dogs are cared for while I am stuck at work during the day. I live in Cheshire and am so glad I found For The Love Of Dogs. If you love your pets, give Sheri a call. Both your pets and you will be glad you did!!

Sheri has been taking care of Oliver and Zoe for over a year now and I am so happy with her service! I was afraid of leaving the dogs at home while I am at work all day, but not any more. I don't know what we would do without her.

Sheri from "For the Love of Dogs" comes highly recommended from my husband and I.  We have been using her services since August of 2013 and will continue with her for as long as our pups need her.  She comes to our house mid-day Monday through Friday.  We have also used Sheri for our winter vacation and will schedule her for our summer vacation.

It was evident from our initial interview with Sheri that the pups loved her.  She got down to their level and played with them and gave them treats.  She will often send me pictures of the girls playing outside (pups wrestling, playing tug of war, walking, etc).  It is a great feeling knowing that the girls are being taken care of while my husband and I are away at work.

With two puppies under the age of two, there are oftentimes "accidents."  Sheri always alerts me via text or phone call to the little "messes" and she always has them cleaned up prior to leaving.  It's reassuring to know that our pups don't have to wait for us to get home in order to get their pen area cleaned up.  When our youngest puppy had her surgery, Sheri came back over later in the day to check on her.  If we ever need her to come over twice, she is always willing to do so.

As first time puppy parents, we often text or call Sheri asking for advice.  She has been very helpful in that regard.

The girls look forward to Sheri's daily visits!  My husband and I are very grateful for her services!

Sheri of For the Love of Dogs is a treasure - our puppy, Ben, loves her and waits for her visits every day. We love her, too -- we don't have to worry at all about Ben while we're at work and are at ease knowing she's visiting him and taking the very best care of him.  She's dependable, reliable and truly loves her "clients".  Ben's got the very best of care with Sheri!

Sheri is extremely knowledgeable and is our go to person if we have any questions or need an opinion about raising our pup. She provides such a wonderful, caring can't get that just anywhere...

I can't say enough great things about Sheri and the care she provides for my two dogs. Like many pet owners, my dogs mean the world to me and it takes a lot for me to trust someone with them. Sheri cares for my dogs as if they were her own. She is extremely professional, responsible, and caring. She is very flexible and reliable and has made my life much easier. Her scheduling system is very easy to use and she provides very personalized care- easy to reach and gives updates after her visits. I highly recommend Sheri to anyone looking for a dog walking service.

For the Love of Dogs is a Godsend! Not only is there someone available to help with all of my dog's needs, (feeding, play, and toileting), but there is someone who loves to help take care of all animals. Sheri, from For the Love of Dogs, actually rescued my cat, Charlie. She took amazing care of him and helped nurse him back to health after he was abandoned and abused. She comes for any pet need that I have. She has ideas, solutions to issues, and ways to help socialize and truly help my pets. I would STRONGLY recommend this business to anyone who loves their pets! :)

Let me begin by saying that my dogs are my children and I treat them as such! I am very critical of who I allow to care for them.  That being said, I HIGHLY recommend Sheri and For The Love of Dogs.  She treats my dogs as if they were her own.  She is reliable, trustworthy and goes above and beyond. My dogs adore her and that means everything to me.  It is apparent from the moment you see her interact with your dog that it is not just a business to her, it is her love.  In addition, her knowledge regarding all aspects of canine care is extensive and helpful.  The peace of mind in knowing that my dogs are well cared for is priceless.

Our family was so fortunate to be introduced to Sheri and we felt comfortable from the start!  Not only does Wrigley love her, but it is apparent how much she loves him and wants the best for him as well. Sheri always has wonderful advice and suggestions for us and is a wonderful resource for information! She is such a wonderful fit for us and we trust her with our previous baby without worry or concern!

Sheri first met my bullmastiff, Riesla, during our canine massage classes at Bancroft. At the time, Riesla was still a bit shy and uncertain of strangers. But, Riesla responded to Sheri immediately-which, to me, speaks volumes about how much of a gift she is to her clients. Sheri has an unwaivering love for animals, an incredible dedication to positive re-enforcement & humane training and the belief that every animal, no matter their background, deserves love, companionship and a safe and happy life. I only wish we lived closer-Sheri would totally be my go to for training and pet sitting. And, yes, she has massaged my precious Riesla-and my girl was so happy & relaxed! If you want the best for your pet-call Sheri!

It has been a pleasure having Sheri care for our dog, Brady. We can travel and have confidence in knowing he is in such good hands.
Sheri leaves a detailed "report card" so we know how things went while we were away. When Brady first met Sheri, I could tell it was a
great match. She has a special sense and caring which Brady picked up on. They became instant friends! And, Sheri follows up
concientiously when we return. Our home and our precious dog have been well looked after. What piece of mind it is knowing
all is well while we are away. I have every confidence in Sheri and have enthusiastically recommended her to friends and family.

Hi Sheri,  just wanted to send you a quick not to let you know how pleased we were with your service.  Brody was so happy and playful when we returned.  It is great to know there is someone so caring out there to take good care of them while we are away.

– Mike C.

I was so pleased by the care that Sheri provided for out 2 goldens and bunny while we were away.

I have had other pet sitters in the past, but to Sheri it isn't just a business, she clearly loves the animals in her care and that to us is amazing.  She is so professional yet still down to earth.  I will never call another pet sitter again.

I am highly recommending Sheri Pelzella, From The Love of Dogs for any of your pet care needs. Recently, I had an emergency with two of my dogs. Sheri was instrumental in getting them safely away from a petsitter who had moved them in with her abusive boyfriend. Sheri handled this most difficult situation with professional expediency, arranging all the essential flight plans and had the pups boarded on a plane to be with me in California in less than 2 days. I commend her not only for her efficiency and competency in handling this situation but also for her general understanding and sensitivity to me throughout this ordeal. Sheri truly is For The Love Of Dogs! Gwen F. Smith Cheshire, CT.

  • The quality I like the best about this company is that our pet's welfare and comfort seems to be the first priority with Sheri, above all else. She cares about what is best for our pet, and will be flexible and helpful with any request for his care. Together with her knowledge and experience, I feel I can trust her completely.

  • Sheri is simply wonderful! She comes to play with Ruger 5 days a week and always gives me puppy updates after she's been there. She is is also really accommodating and always has helpful tips. If you are looking for a dog walker I just wouldn't suggest anyone else!
