About Sandy

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I offer visits to your home and walking. I foster with area rescues and for that reason, would rather visit your pets at your home if I have foster guests. I have been a volunteer dog trainer, behavior helpline volunteer, kennel and foster volunteer. I have enjoyed pets all my life. I teach dogs to have good manners indoors because I believe pets are part of the family. I do have a medium size back yard and large dog run for exercise. I have two kids ages 11 and 16 that have been raised to respect animals.

Thanks for looking after Jackson
Thanks to Sandy, I had peace of mind and comfort while I traveled. She kept me informed with text and photo and left notes for me to read when I got home. I could also tell that she communicated with the other dog sitter.

Also, I chose Sandy to care for my dogs because she has experience with fostering dogs and that made me feel like she could attend to the new dog that we had just rescued 6 weeks ago. I thought she would be tuned in to the dynamic between the old dog and the new dog. I also felt comfortable with her personality when we had a meet and greet. She is a warm person and clearly my dogs liked her right away. Dogs know which people are kind people!
Sandy came to our home to care for our 11 year old lab while we were out of town. When we arrived home, our doggie was relaxed, happy and well taken care of. It is such a pleasure to have found someone to take care of our dog, in our home, without the stress and hassle of a kennel. We will absolutely call on Sandy for our next holiday.
Sandy was the absolute best! Coco quickly bonded to her and her family (as well as cats and dogs). Sandy kept me in the loop, sending me updates and pictures during Coco's stay. I will definitely be bringing Coco back to visit with Sandy and her family.. I think Coco would be upset if I did'nt.

Sandy's passion for the care of animals shines through. I am so glad I brought Coco here for her week stay.
Sandy was great! She came over for half hour visits with my dog Daphne. She played with her and took her on short walks. I had to work long days and didn't know when I'd be home for lunch. It was great to know Sandy would visit my dog so I didn't have to worry about her being stuck in the house too long.
