About Sandra

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! I simply adore dogs, as well as cats! I've lived with dogs my whole life and currently live with two senior dogs: Tobey, a miniature dachshund, and Rex, an American pit bull terrier. I am an undergraduate, majoring in French and Spanish, currently taking a break from UMSL. I live with my lovely mother and father, and 22-year-old brother who has fishes and two guinea pigs in the finished basement.

In the past, I have taken care of my friends' and relatives' pets, spending the night at their home with their dog, driving to their apartment to feed and walk their dogs, and even giving tips on how to train and care for them. I love watching dog training shows, such as the "Dog Whisperer", and "It's Me or the Dog" with Victoria Stillwell, as one of my goals is to become a professional dog trainer. I enjoy giving dogs baths, taking them on long walks on trails and playing with them. Rex loves to swim in the nearby lakes and creeks and I occasionally take Tobey on walks, and when he gets tired, I carry him for part of the way. In our yard, I tie Rex to a very long leash tied to a tree, (we don't have a fence), otherwise, I stay outside to watch and play with them. Our deck, secured with a baby gate, is where the pets love to sunbathe while observing who passes by on the sidewalk. I've given insulin shots and pills orally, thus, I will administer your pets' medication with confidence.
We are a family of pet-loving people! For example, we have two pieces of furniture that now are designated for dogs to lounge and nap on; one in my dad's office and one in the living room. Rex loves carrots and apples as treats. Our dogs have gotten along with every pet brought into the house (we used to have a cat). Additionally, I used to spend summers in Mexico on my grandmother's ranch with many dogs, so I have experience with dogs' behavior patterns in packs. Dog beds are provided (large and small), but feel free to bring your own.

All in all, I am very eager to embark on each new relationship with you and your beloved pets. Your pet will receive attentive, specialized care and unrelenting love with me as your sitter. Thank you and I hope I exceed your expectations!

My two German Shorthaired Pointers are a handful.... Sandra was up for the challenge and did a great job. Will use her again!!!
This is my second time using Sandra's services with my 2 dogs. She is the best, she takes fantastic care of them I receive videos and texts. I love knowing they are well taken care of while we are gone.
Sandra went far above and beyond to ensure that our dogs were well cared for in our absence. We have a senior dog and a puppy. She was amazing with both! Your babes are in good hands with Sandra!
Sandra was professional, friendly, and did a great job. Came out early and took time to get to know Buddy. Good communication while I was away. Recommend her with no problem.
A++++. My maltipoo, London, stayed with Sandra for 9 days while I was on vacation. Sandra texted me frequent pictures and videos so I could stay connected with my pup. When I told her London sleeps in bed with me, she let London sleep in bed with her too. I will definitely use Sandra's services again and will definitely recommend her to all of my friends. Thank you, Sandra!

We used Sandra for a couple of home visits to feed our two cats and to feed and potty our two dogs when we had to be gone overnight. She came over for a meet and greet the night before we left to go over everything. She sent us pictures and videos each time she visited. I knew they were in good hands and I didn't worry about them at all. Would recommend Sandra to take care of your babies.

Sandra took great care of our dog. She took her on walks and runs, bandaged up a wound, and runs a dog friendly atmosphere!
Sandra is a very special person. She is a dog person. We have a special needs dog and she went above and beyond what was needed for him. The next trip we go on,we hope we can get Sandra.
Sandra was great! She took great care of both our babies (an elderly cat and elderly dog). She not only took pictures of them eating and drinking, but also took video of their walk. Both babies seemed to be very happy. Our animals are spoiled and Sandra was very sweet to spoil them in our absence. We never once worried about their care. We will definitely ask Sandra to stay with them again.

Sandra was amazing with Cutter, he definitely was living it up while he was with her. Sandra kept me updated everyday with videos and pictures, I would definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter.
We used Sandra for our dog vacay and were very pleasedā£ Sandra listened well to Tuckers likes & dislikes. She sent us fun videos & pics. Our Tucker was very happy!! We will definitely use her again!
Sandra did an excellent job making Rommel feel at home on his Vacay! He came home happy and healthy! We really enjoyed the pictures, videos, and messages she shared with us to let us know he was doing okay. We will definitely be using Sandra again!
Best pet sitter. Will use Sandra again.
I was so happy with Sandra. We've had a lot of pet sitters and she's the best. Our house was left cleaner than when we left, and our dogs seemed to even be better behaved once we returned. She's a real find
Sandra meet all of our expectations while we were gone for 1 week in the Caribbean. She has a warm, inviting house for our dog Ruby to play in, her dogs are gentlemen, and we received several pictures and video updates while we were gone. Sandra's house is so much better than a kennel. We will definitely be repeat customers. Thanks Sandra!!

Sandra and her family took amazing care of my pup while my wife and I were in town for my sister's wedding. She regularly sent me pictures of Barley (my 11 month old, female weimaraner) playing with her pups, going on walks and snoozing. We'll be back in town at the end of the month and we hope we're lucky enough to book Sandra. Barley misses you guys already!
