About Sandy

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*I serve the following cities and near by: Santa Monica, Venice, Westwood, USC area, etc. Message me if you have questions!

Hi! I'm Sandy and I am a college student majoring in Geography. Apart from school I love spending time with animals! I've had a few dogs growing up and I spent 2 years volunteering at a shelter so I've learned to be responsible with walking, feeding, medicating, playing and caring for them and so much more.

Professional Experience: Ive worked with pets from DogVacay for more than a year now and in the past I volunteered at Seaaca Animal Shelter were I was able to walk and interact with dogs, groom them and even medicated them when needed.

So yYour pet will be in definitely be great hands if you choose me!

Services: I offer checkups, walking and grooming, as I am no longer able to host dogs at my house. Also, my schedule is very flexible so we can definitely find a time that fits your needs.

Thanks for stopping b and ffeel free to message for a quick responss!

All the best,

Sandy was very communicative throughout the entire process and clearly knows what she is doing when it comes to learning about and caring for a dog. Will definitely book with her again!
Sandy is great! She communicates well about all the arrangements that need to be made before the vacay, is punctual, and asks all the right questions about your pet's care and habits. She sends pics and detailed updates, and really pays attention to your pet, for example she was concerned when it seemed Fizz wasn't drinking enough water and she reached out to see what could be done about it. This is the second time we have booked her services and both times have come home to a happy and calm fur baby and a clean home. We're very grateful to be able to rely on her when we travel.
Super helpful in a short notice pinch! Especially since my dog was in a "I can find a dead mouse within 3 seconds of going outside" phase. Great sitter!
Harvey had a wonderful DogVacay with Sandy. She's great with updates and I always come home to a happy pup!
Sandy was awesome! Super nice and took great care of my pup!
Sandy is great! She has watched my two dogs several times over the last year. She not only stays overnight at my home so my girls are more comfortable; she also walks them twice a day, gives them their medicine, and sends daily updates with pictures. Sandy has been a life saver since I have to travel every couple weeks for work. It has been a relief to have someone I can depend on when I am out of town. Thank you, Sandy!
Sandy was absolutely fantastic. Came by a few days before the visit and asked all the right questions, which quickly put me at ease (it was my first time using the service.) She kept me updated throughout the trip, and even sent me some amazing photos of Sophie she had taken using her blogging camera (which I plan to print out and hang up.) She was just simply great, and I hope to book her again soon!
Sandy is a fantastic dog sitter! She came over a few days before the job and asked all the right questions. She sent photos and updates while we were away. We came back to happy dogs and a clean house. I highly recommend her and will absolutely use her again!
Sandy was great with Harvey! He had a wonderful Dog Vacay and Sandy kept me updated with text messages and photos.
Sandy was great! She was able to step in last minute and took time out to come meet my pups before I had to leave. She sent pictures and kept me updated on them while I was away.I was a little hesitant as this was the first time I was going to leave my dogs with someone they didn't know, but I was reassured by the initial comfort level that Sandy had with my furry babies :)
I got text updates and the dogs were happy when I got home--seemed like she spent a lot of time with them while I was gone. She wasn't hesitant about taking care of my large lab who's gotten snotty with other dogs in her old age, which made me feel much better about leaving them. Definitely recommend.
sandy was great! My dog Chloe loved her visits to my house and walks each day. She is great at communicating and sending doggie updates and pics throughout the day. Highly recommend!
Sandy was great, she kept in touch throughout Ronin's entire "vacation". Ronin seemed to love spending time with Sandy. I would totally recommend Sandy to anyone in need of a dog walker.
Sandy is very sweet. You can feel her love of dogs. She was very good about sending pictures and the house was neat and clean when we get home. We will use her help again!
We had a very unique request, asking Sandy to watch our dog while we had engagement photos taken, and she did everything we asked for, and more, without hesitation and with a smile on her face. Sandy was a natural with our dog, keeping an eye on her when she wasn't in the photos,
tending to her when she needed it, and even carrying her when the time was right. I would highly recommend Sandy if you are looking for a friendly and attentive sitter.
Sandy was super, she jumped in at the last minute and handled our giant pup and buns like a pro. Was very flexible with last minute changes and very thorough with keeping me in the loop with daily updates and pictures. I never once was concerned that I forgot to mention something or that Sandy wouldn't know what to do. I only had to explain the routine once (and I threw a lot at her in a short time) and she handled it perfectly. The family was very pleased when we came back and even the kids thought her notes were very nice and insisted that we have her stay again next time!
Sandys a wonderful sitter! Quick response time, responsible, sweet and my dog Bailey loves her! Highly recommend.
We have a large dog that sometimes intimidates people but Sandy's calm demeanor puts our dog at ease. The dog looks forward to her sitting. thanks
This was the first time I used DogVacay and I was worried about leaving my babies with a stranger. But I was lucky to have found Sandy. She was very patient with me and was available to answer all my questions. She connected with my babies immediately and I was very relieved to know that they were going to be with her while I was gone. Knowing that my babies were in Sandy's hands allowed me to relax and enjoy my vacation. I will definitely used Sandy again!!!
Finding Sandy was such a big relief! She was professional and very accommodating to the specific needs of my doggies. She sent pictures and videos to put us at ease while we were away. I had a great experience with Sandy and my dogs loved her too!
Sandy took care of our babys in our home, was on time and did a wonderful job. Very dependable! I would recommend her to anyone looking for home sitting which is what we needed.
