About Sandi

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Being retired, my hubby and I are home most of the day relaxing and working around the house.

My husband and I have had several small dogs over the past thirty years. We do not have a pet at this time so we are missing the company of our furry buddies.

We live in a town house so we do have some restrictions. When we take the dogs out they must be on a leash and of course cleanup is mandatory! Out our back door we have a nice grassy area for quick necessity trips. Just a few blocks away we have a dog park with separate areas for large and smaller dogs. There is plenty of room to run around, chase balls and meet other friendly dogs etc.
I also enjoy taking leisurely walks around the neighborhood with my dog visitors.

Inside your treasured pet will be welcomed into our home and treated as if they were part of our family. They will get plenty of attention and snuggle time.

We will do everything possible to follow your care instructions so your pet will feel comfortable and enjoy their stay with us.

Sandi was easy to communicate with, available for convenient pick up and drop off, and sent photo updates. My spoiled dog enjoyed having she and her husband home almost all the time, and he also liked being the only dog there so that all the attention and love was his!

Sandi was great with our 15-year-old Cairn Terrier Gus. She understood our concern for him and kept us informed on how he was doing. He quickly settled in and seemed right at home. I was afraid he wouldn't want to come home with us! I will definitely leave Gus with Sandi again should the need arise.

It was amazing. At first sight Roscoe responding to her and loved her. Roscoe is a rescue dog and doesn't respond to people so well. It took him 6 months to finally sleep with us. He slept with the that night. Amazing!!! Truely good inspirational people. Thank you for such great care and pictures of our special dog!!!

It's hard to leave your dog with a stranger for a week. We had the opportunity to meet and greet with the dog sitter and see where we were going to board her. We felt very comfortable leaving our dog with her in her home. Getting pictures of our loving pet, while we were gone, was a nice assurance of her enjoying her new home for the week. We would definitely consider and recommend Sandi F in the future.

My babies were obviously very happy at Sandi's! She sent photos and they were making themselves right at home! I would definitely take them to Sandi's again!
My dogs seemed happy and well taken care of when I picked them up. Sandi sent me pics everyday which definitely eased my anxiety of leaving them. The updates were awesome and greatly appreciated. When I picked them up Sandi had all their things packed and ready which was helpful especially after getting off a long flight. I found Sandi extremely flexible which was also a plus. I would definitely use her again.

Our Cairn was happy as could be, evidenced by the photos Sandi sent us regularly. We were sure we made the right choice with Sandi.
Sandi was great with my King and Diamond. It seemed like they enjoyed their time. Sandi sent pictures and kept in great communication with me. I would recommend Sandi to anyone!
Sandi did a great job with my pups, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a good caretaker!
Sandi was a DREAM!! My dog was recovering from a knee injury and just coming off of his antibiotics. He was barely eating and was hobbling. Sandi's house was the perfect calm vacation for Toby. She texted me updates with photos of his steady progress which made me know he was in excellent hands. By the time I picked him up Sunday he was a brand new dog! Full of energy and he was no longer limping but running around the house shaking his tail. Him and Sandi bonded and he loved being held by her. I couldn't be happier and wish I could always have Sandi and her husband watch him. She treated my dog like family.
Thanks Sandi F.!

Very nice and easy to work with!
Sandi is a very caring person...our dog was very happy when we picked her up and probably would have even stayed longer with Sandi. We recommend her strongly!
Sandi was one of the best sitters we have had. Sophy and Bella had a wonderful time and seemed to lhave loved their stay. She took them to the park along with giving them good care. She sent us photos while we were away. I very highly recommend her
Sandi and her husband were great with our dog Rusty. He had never been left with anyone but family in the past, but seemed very comfortable with Sandi. We will definitely be leaving our dog with them again! I would highly recommend her.
Sadie had a wonderful time at Sandi's. Sandi kept us updated with texts and pictures that showed Sadie being spoiled and happy. We didn't have a single worry while we were gone. I'll be using Sandi again in the future when we need a warm, caring, and secure place for our Sadie!

Our Shih Tzu, Rocky, stayed with Sandi and her husband for two and a half weeks. Rocky was pampered just like how he is at home. Sandi kept us updated with text and pics. This is our first time using dogvacay and I highly recommend this site and Sandi and will definitely use her again. Thank you Sandi!

Sandi was wonderful to us and to our dog. She was very flexible with drop off/pick up dates and times which we appreciated so very much. Sandi was very attentive to our dog. She sent us pictures of our dog and it helped to know he was doing well and was cared for while we were gone.

Sandi took really great care of our dog Trudy! I cannot recommend her enough!!!
We were very pleased with the care Sandi gave to our babies. This was the first time using DogVacay and we will definitely use them again. Thank you very much for the love and care provided.
Sand was great! She gave me daily updates and even texted a few pictures to me. Would have zero hesitations recommending her to others.
This was our first time leaving our toy poodle, Princess, with anyone besides friends or family. Princess was settled down and getting comfortable before we even left when we dropped her off. Sandi texted a couple of pictures to us and updated us on how she was doing throughout the day, which was great. This worked out really well for us and we would definitely use Sandi again. Thanks.

Sandi and her husband were wonderful sitters for my little yorkie Kai. I felt comfortable with them the moment I arrived to their lovely home. This is the first time I have left Kai with anyone other than my mom or friends and he seemed to like them right away. Sandi texted me the cutest photos of Kai playing with his toys and resting in his bed. It made me feel alot better knowing that he was in good hands and it made my trip more enjoyable without any worries about Kai. I would definitely have Sandi dog sit again and highly recommend her to anyone wanting a great sitter for their dog. On a scale from 1 - 10 with 10 being the highest, I would rate Sandi a 10 ++++.Thank you both for everything and for making my trip a good one! Kai thanks you too!

Our spoiled little dog is not the easiest pooch in the world, but she followed Sandi without even looking back. Sandi said she was good. They played ball. I know my dog would have LOVED that part. Everything seemed to go well. I'll definitely choose Sandi if I ever pass through Mesa again.

Sandi was absolutely amazing! We just moved to AZ and our very first day we dropped Pearl off we literally just got off the plane w/ her, went to the store to buy her a bed, bowl, etc, and then dropped her off at Sandi's. You can imagine it was quite hectic and nerve wracking not knowing where we would be leaving our doggie. The minute we pulled up we knew she was in good hands! Sandi kept me up to date via phone, text and on DogVacay sending me updates and pictures on how Pearl was doing the entire time. We even had to extend her stay an extra week and she was very accommodating about this from the beginning. I already told her next time we need someone to watch Pearl she is the first person I will contact.

My dog had the best stay with Sandi! I got regular updates and pictures via email - which made my time away much easier. I can't say enough about the fine care Olive received while at Sandi's. On a scale of 1-10, she's about a 75! :) Thanks so much!
