I’ve always seen myself as a voice for the voiceless. I’m passionate about advocating for the needs of pets. I love them deeply, and nothing tears me up more than seeing pets mistreated or unloved. Now that I work from home, becoming a pet sitter gives me the opportunity to apply my zeal for loving and caring for dogs. My heart breaks for pups left in kennels. I want them to have all the advantages of a wonderful home and one-on-one devotion that they deserve!
I look at dogs like humans and treats them as such. My family laughs at me about it! I always take pups’ feelings into consideration, treat them as my children, and do everything in my power to keep them happy and safe. Any pup in my care will receive boundless love and attention.
Dogs will love getting outside with me, whether we’re enjoying the quiet cul-de-sac neighborhood or playing rambunctious games in the lovely, grassy backyard. Furry friends have full access to my double-story home, and they love to sit near me with chew toys while I’m working or play or cuddle when I’m taking a break.
I’m empathetic, caring, and I adore dogs immeasurably. I have to resist the urge to bring every stray and shelter dog home for life, so it’s amazing and gratifying to find an alternative like Rover. I’m beyond excited to welcome dogs into my home because I know the experience will be invaluable for me, for the pup, and for the peace of mind I can give you during your trip.

Andrea is a very sweet lady, this is the first time I asked her to be my dogs' keeper and she did an excellent job. After I met her, I feel she is a loving and caring person, so I like her very much. Thank you Andrea, you are the best!!

Andrea was AMAZING! First time leaving my 3 dogs with a sitter, I was a little nervous. She would send me pics of my dogs every day, she responds instantly to texts.
If you need a sitter for your fur kids. Andrea, is your best choice!

Great experience! Andrea went above and beyond to make our little one comfortable. Not sure our dog wanted to come home after his stay with Andrea. Highly recommended.

Andrea was absolutely wonderful. This was the first time in a long time that we had to leave our babies with someone else. We have a German shepherd and a shitzu. Andrea did a great job with our dogs. She sent pictures daily, sometimes more than once per day to let us know they were doing ok. My dogs thoroughly enjoyed staying with Andrea. We will definitely rebook for our next vacation!

My dog has stayed with Andrea twice now. Both time for several days and she's had a great time every time. I'd recommend Andrea to anyone and i will definitely book her again.

Andrea did a phenomenal job hosting our pup for 10 days, her home was perfectly suited with a large fenced in yard and large lounging area inside. I highly recommend her.

Andrea was very friendly and asked lots of questions about both of my dogs. She wanted to know about their behavior, habits, and overal schedule to make sure they would be comfortable.
She sent lots of pictures during their stay and updated me on how they were doing.
When I picked my dogs up they were not stressed out and really seemed like they had a great time.

Dear Pet Owner,
I want to share my experience with Andrea, a kind and caring person with people and animals alike. She had been an exceptional caregiver to our Frankie, a husky, who we lost three years ago and Sammy, a mixed breed who is now nine. Both our dogs were able to instinctively feel her genuine connection to the animal world.
Sammy was a handful as he was growing up. Andrea always had the ...

Andrea has been watching my dogs for the past 12 years. By nature Andrea is a warm, caring, giving person with all heart and loads of patience. She treats my pets as if they are little humans and offers them a warm loving home when they are with her. She also accommodates any requests or needs my pets may need and follows instructions to the T.

Andrea loves pets and pets love her. I have known Andrea for 13 years and am happy to recommend her as a pet caregiver. My Chihuahua loves individual attention and Andrea gives it to her. Jazzy is always excited to go for a visit and when I return from my vacation my pet is not stressed out or nervous. Andrea is someone I can trust given any circumstance. I consider her truthful, honest and understanding ...

I have 2 Fur Babies they are both female French Bull Dogs, they are very spoiled and I get very nervous
when I've had to leave them in the past, then I found Andy, she takes very good care of my babies and I'm not nervous anymore. She is awesome in her care for my girls!! *****

She has watched my animals and she could not be more caring and loving... I think she treats them better than I do and I love my furry children! She has also house sat for me in addition to caring for my animals. She is trustworthy and I have no concerns going out of town and leaving them in her care.
I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a pet sitter, she will ...

I recommend Andrea because she is loving, caring, and speaks Bow Wow! I trust her because of her fantastic multitasking skills and my pups are always happy. She really cares about their well-being.

Originally I was very apprehensive about leaving my baby Lucy with a stranger/pet sitter. When I contacted Andrea she was extremely understanding of my concerns and suggested visiting her with Lucy so I can get a feel of what environment I would be leaving my baby.
She has a quiet home with a lovely yard with grass and lots of shade. She even has a futon laid out on the floor especially for her fluffy visitors. Lucy and I took to her immediately. Andrea is kind, loving and caring and you could tell how much she loves animals. I was so relieved to see Lucy excited.
She asked me about Lucy’s likes and dislikes, routines that she is accustom to, diet and any special instruction. She even asked me if it was okay to make her some scrambled egg for breakfast.. LOL!!
She called me with status updates and sent me fun pics of Lucy! We are both so happy to have met Andrea and have used her many times. She has also assisted me with checking on my house, getting the mail and watering plants.
So for those of you who are apprehensive like I was, Andrea is your gal!
