Founder and Owner
Corinne Gearhart founded Cherry Creek Pampered Pets, LLC in 2016. The road was windy, but the destination was a long time coming. Growing up, her mother was allergic to dogs and the family was unable to get a pup. Corinne’s passion for dogs wasn’t thwarted. Every stuffed animal, every research project, every book checked out of the library, was about dogs. Every letter to Santa plead for a puppy, “I’ll keep it in my room Santa, my mom will never know!”
As an adult, she was introduced to poodles and doodles and the more hypoallergenic options for families. Corinne decided to offer a unique service for families who couldn’t have a dog come home covered in lab or husky hair. Families who wanted their dog to come back home just as hypoallergenic as they left. Corinne founded the “Shed Free Stay,” hoping to help families like her own have the option of having dogs just as she had dreamt as a child.
Corinne’s Master’s degree in Student Affairs and Counseling from NYU and former career serving students and families provided many skills to run Cherry Creek Pampered Pets, LLC. Her customer service expertise, counseling, and experience serving family’s needs combined with her passionate love for pets. Clients say her professionalism shines through as strong as her clear devotion to their animals.
Hoping to help all families manage having a pet at home with all of their other commitments and responsibilities, Corinne expanded Cherry Creek Pampered Pets, LLC to offer dog walks, cat sitting, and pet sitting. She feels lucky to be surrounded by such a talented team of Pet Pamperers.
Chris Gearhart spends many of his hours laying down the law at work. When he comes home, he’s thrilled to show his softer side to the pups as the Boarding Manager. A passionate home chef, he loves when pet parents say their pup appreciates their food getting dressed up to make it more appetizing (such a doodle trait!). Dogs never go on a hunger strike with him in the kitchen and he makes sure their full bellies always get a great belly rub. Chris prides himself on building trust with men for pups that have apprehension about men or haven’t had much positive socialization with men. A big teddy bear, he’s always ready for a doggy snuggle.

Melissa has lived in Colorado for 30+ years and our neighborhood for the last 5. Her love for cats started when she was young and her family adopted a neighborhood stray they named Carmen. From then on, Melissa has always had a cat as a pet.
She knows how different each one of their little personalities can be so she enjoys learning about them and playing with them. Her fur babies, Goldie and Rosie, love snuggling with her on the couch after a long day and catching up on some mindless reality tv shows. Goldie isn’t so happy when Melissa puts her Santa sweater on during the holidays, but still adores her mom! Clients report loving Melissa’s clever report cards and creative pictures she sends when they are away from their pets. The details she shares always help them feel right at ease.
