About Andi

Hi there! My name is Andi and my husband, Phil, and I would be thrilled to take care of your pet for you.

UPDATE: We recently moved to Ivy City! (But will do everything we can to maintain clients in our old 'hood.)

About me:

With the abundance of pups in the District, it wasn't long before I began dog and cat sitting for my apartment neighbors back in 2012. I also previously worked at a veterinary clinic as an animal care specialist for the dogs and cats boarding there. I have currently been watching dogs with DogVacay for almost 3 years (since Summer '14). While I am the primary caretaker, my husband loves dogs as well and joins me on several walks. Between the two of us, we can pretty much provide 24 hour care.

I love both dogs and cats and my apartment complex has an expansive rooftop dog park - a big plus if you have a social canine! The National Arboretum is also just steps away if your pet prefers longer, more peaceful walks outside.

I have provided overnight care in clients' homes on several occasions (especially cat owners) as I have the luxury of working remotely! This also means your pet will always have 24-hour supervision. :)

Some nearby perks in my neighborhood (all within walking distance):

-Petco is a block away!

-National Arboretum

-Lots of fun neighbor dogs if your dog likes to play!

**NOTE** I typically do not watch more than two dogs in my home, as I prefer that your pet get as much undivided attention as possible. However, if you own three dogs that are well-acquainted with each other, I'd be happy to make an exception.
In addtion, my listing states that I do not host pit bull terriers. This is a case-by-case basis. My apartment complex has a vast number of dog owners and in my experience, many pit mixes can be extremely aggressive towards other dogs. If your pit is well-trained and likes other dogs, I would be more than happy to meet him or her!

We look forward to meeting you and your pup or kitty!

Andi always goes above and beyond to make sure your dog is not only cared for, but cared about. She truly loves dogs and it shows in the little things as well as the normal day to day things. I would HIGHLY recommend Andi as your next dog sitter!

Great host! I would recommend Beth.
Andi was a great host for our pup. Her apartment is very nice and her building even has a dog park. We were very impressed by the setup. During our pup's stay, Andi sent us updates and some pictures. He came back tired and napped all night. We will definitely book with Andi again.
Andi was a wonderful host! This was my first time leaving Bishop with someone since we move to a new area, and it could not have gone better. Bishop came home relaxed and tuckered out from all the fun. Andi sent pictures and some updates throughout his stay, which was very helpful. I would definitely use Andi again.
