Years Caring for Dogs 20
***BOOK ASAP TO GUARANTEE YOUR HOLIDAY PET CARE!***
Dogs like vacations too! Consider boarding your BFF where they can enjoy leisurely strolls through the nearby Wissahickon Park, and plenty of safe, supervised outdoor playtime. You'll receive ample photo and text updates about your furry friend's activities while you're away!
I am a 31 year-old graduate student currently studying and working within the social services field. I have been a pet owner all of my life and feel comfortable with all breeds of dogs, cats, and other domestic friends. I have cared for farm animals (Quakertown, PA) as well as volunteering at the Aark Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center (Chalfont, PA). I also worked with the company, "A Friend" Pet Sitters, based in Brooklyn, NY for approximately five years. I am professional, responsible, friendly, and reliable.
Basic attention involves feeding, changing of water, structured walks, and lots of personal attention and playtime for your best friend(s). Additional services may include basic grooming, bathing, home-cooked meals and medication administration for special needs animals, as well as plant-watering and mail pick-up if needed. I am also happy to care for any resident cats, fish, or other pets in your home.
My air-conditioned, two bedroom apartment is quiet, clean, and smoke/alcohol free! While there is no “private” outdoor space, there is a small park across the street for exploring, fenced in fields for frisbee games, and plenty of sidewalks for long, leisurely strolls around dog-friendly East Falls. Additionally, the dog beach at Kitchens Lane is only a five-minute drive away!
I understand and am accommodating to the unique needs of each individual animal and provide outstanding service to ensure the minimum amount of stress on your pet while "their person" is away. I will do my best to stick to your pet’s “routine” in your absence, including use or non-use of crates, preferred feeding and walking times, etc. If your dog pulls on the leash, I prefer to use a gentle leader, harness, or prong collar to prevent injury to your pet. I do request that all dogs in my care wear collars that fit securely and cannot be pulled over the dog’s head, with ID and any vaccination tags or licenses you may have. Additionally, all pets visiting my home are required to maintain an up-to-date flea and tick prevention regimen.
In the unlikely event that your pet may need medical attention in your absence, you may rest assured that they will receive immediate and sophisticated care. I have worked with blind, deaf, epileptic, and diabetic animals. My live-in partner and I are both certified in pet CPR and First Aid through the American Red Cross and have established relationships with the best local veterinarians. Feel free to inquire about the benefits of booking with a “Premium Insurance” equipped host. Big dog? Aggressive towards other animals? Let's talk. In most cases, I feel fully competent. It is my preference, however, that every adult dog in my care be spayed or neutered. I also request that your dog is either house or pee pad-trained to prevent damage to my home.
The prices listed on my profile are general/guideline prices. Boarding rates are for periods of 24 hours, but I am happy to offer pro-rated daycare if you need additional time to pick up your pet. I am flexible within reason and will work within your budget to ensure that your pet is cared for in a way that is affordable for you! Possible additional rates for the care of more than one animal. I prefer to deliver custom quotes for each of my clients after discussing the desired services.
While I will accept occasional last-minute bookings, I prefer to do in-home "meet and greets" before boarding dogs, so please try to book with enough advanced notice to schedule one if possible.
Local client references and criminal background check also happily offered for your peace of mind.

Below are some reviews of Andy S from real dog owners who have used their services on DogVacay.com!
Great experience as always!
Once again, Andy is the absolute best! My two little pooches came home happy and relaxed! We will be back :)
As always, Andy has been beyond fantastic. This is the longest I have left my dog, Laika, with Andy, and she returned in great shape, happy, and energized. It was a better vacation for her than for me. Thank you Andy!
Scoobie had a great time with Andy. Andy went the extra mile making sure during the Meet & Greet that Scoobie was compatible with her own dog. It is clear she is a genuine dog lover. I had complete trust in her in looking after Scoobie. Andy provided text and picture updates and Scoobie came back exhausted (a rare feat). Highly recommend!
Andy provided us with peace of mind during our wedding and honeymoon! My wife and I met through our dogs, Bodie and Ella, and it was very important that they be in our wedding. Andy made this possible by being a thoughtful and attentive chaperone to our pups. Having no worries that they were in the best of hands, we were able to focus on other details of our DIY wedding. Andy then stayed at our house for 12 nights during our honeymoon and cared for our dogs, cat and plants! The honeymoon was by far the longest we were away from our furry children and it was reassuring to know that they received plenty of love, attention and exercise in our absence. We were kept updated through text messages and photographs, although we didn't have a second thought about their comfort and safety with Uncle Andy at the house. Our only worry was they would miss Andy when we returned! Andy is a natural. He is compassionate, caring, calm, pleasant, attentive, responsible and very knowledgable. We are so happy that we found a pet sitter that we can count on time and time again!
Our dog, BG, was one happy little pooch after a few walks with Andi. We could rest easy knowing BG was in such good hands.
Andy was a great dog sitter while we were away for a weekend. She came and stayed at our apartment, which meant the dogs got to stay in their own environment. She left the place tidy and the dogs happy, always answered when we called to check in, and was incredibly reliable. It meant we didn't have to worry about leaving the dogs with her despite us being out of contact for some time. We would definitely use her again!
Andy is absolutely the BEST! I can't tell you how wonderful it was to receive daily updates and to pick up my two little pups happy and stress-free. :)
Andy was super easy to coordinate with - from introducing my dogs to her dog, to figuring out logistics. It was clear to me early on that Andy loves pets and looks out for what's best for any pet that crosses her path. She passed on references who were very responsive and effusive in their support of her. Loved getting the updates and photos while we were away, too!
Andy was great, she stayed with my dogs for 3 days in my home. My house looked exactly like I left it and the dogs were well taken care of! Thanks Andy!
I could not have asked for a more perfect dog sitter for my young dog, Lupie Lu. Andy was more than I could have hoped for in a dog sitter. Lu was exercised and cared for and is even better behaved on a leash than before she stayed with Andy! She received loads of attention, walks, and when she had a tummy upset, she received the care she needed without hassle. I highly recommend Andy for any of your dog sitting needs. If going out of town, the home care is far superior than kenneling your dog. I came home to a well-adjusted, loving and happy dog!
Andy took great care of my dog and cat over a long weekend. I received a few texts a day with updates and both pets were happy and relaxed when I got back. My dog has some behavior issues and Andy was happy to accommodate any restrictions and requests I had. Great communication and service!
Andy is a fantastic host! We left our dog with her for a weekend and she had a great time playing with Andy’s dog, Dakota. Andy kept us updated regularly through out the weekend. She (Andy) is confident and skillful handling several dogs at a time and truly enjoys doing so. We highly recommend her as a host, and would not think of anyone else to take care of out pup.
