About Saundra

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I love dogs and have owned dogs for our entire adult life. We cannot imagine a family without dogs. We are both retired so we can provide 24/7 care for dogs in our home.We currently have a 3-year old Goldendoodle. Maggie is very friendly and loves having "dog company."

We live in a quiet neighborhood on an acre of land. Our back yard is fenced (1/4 acre) We walk our dogs twice a day in our neighborhood and visit local dog parks (Jacobson or Coldstream) at least weekly and sometimes daily if we have guest dogs who need extra exercise. Your dog(s) will have the run of the house and our fenced yard when they are in our home.

PLEASE NOTE: If you leave your dog(s) early on the first day and pick them up late on the last day, we charge a $10 late fee.

Our dog is a nice dog, but suffers from separation anxiety. We have tried several different sitters, but it was clear that Saundra and Tom are a cut above. They have a fenced area in back for the dogs to play, a dog to play with, and nice large house for the dogs to explore. They frequently take the boarded dogs to the nearby dog park. Our dog was very well cared for. We will be dropping him off in a couple weeks for a 30-day stay while we go overseas.
We were very happy with the whole doggy vacay process! Tom and Saundra were both caring and professional and I know "Findlay" had a wonderful stay with them. The daily pictures helped us stay in touch with him and them. We would recommend them to our friends and anyone who wants their fur babies taken well care of. Shirley Balman
I've used DogVacay before and had to find someone new due to reasons that were out of my hands.
Finding Saundra was definitely the best thing I've done in a long time! My fur baby, Leia, stayed with Saundra for 10 days. She felt right at home with the help of Maggie, the RFBC, the resident fur baby in charge. Saundra took them to the park everyday, along with walking them twice daily. She kept Leia very active, and somehow captured pictures of a dog that runs from any camera, to send to me while I was away. I felt extremely secure leaving Leia with Saundra and Tom, and will most definitely do it again. Thank you both!
It was such a blessing that Saundra was willing to keep Lucy on shorter notice than usual. (We had a family emergency and she was available and willing to keep Lucy.) Lucy is very happy in their home and I love that Saundra keeps us posted with pictures and comments at least once a day. Saundra is very good at mentioning any concerns she notices about Lucy's health as well. She and her husband are very observant and attentive to Lucy...Saundra walks her and takes her to the park regularly and feeds her as we have requested; we have complete peace of mind while we are gone, knowing she is in such good company!
Saundra and her husband offer a wonderful loving and clean environment. They love animals and it shows; they treat Lucy as though she was their own. Saundra followed directions well on feeding Lucy and also took her to the park to walk. Saundra sends pics and messages at least once a day. Lucy loves them, and when we turn into their driveway, she knows just where she is, and gets excited to get into their home to see them. It is so peaceful knowing she is in good hands with them while we are away.
Rafe's stay with Saundra and Tom was great. He was happy and integrated well when we arrived. Rafe was happy to see me at pick up, but also showed affection for Saundra, Tom and Maggie, so I know they showed him a good time. Thanks so much!
*****Absolutely Pawsome for sure*****

This was the first time leaving my puppy Lexi with anyone other than her grandma and I must say, Saundra and Tom were absolutely wonderful. Saundra was very quick with responses and the meet and greet was an excellent experience for everyone, especially myself & Lexi.

Saundra did a great job of keeping me updated with lots of photos and status on Lexi and her new friends daily activities. I was extremely nervous to leave my little one, but she was in wonderful hands and made herself comfortable in their lovely home and great yard.

Lexi is an extremely active 7 month old pup and to know that Saundra & Tom felt comfortable enough to venture to the dog park with her really made me feel she was in the best of care and that they enjoyed Lexi's company as much as she did theirs!

Thank you so much for taking care of my baby girl Saundra, Tom and Maggie ~ she had a great time!
Wonderful! They really took care of her as though she was their own. Rather than a Kennel setting, Lucy was in their warm private home with a fenced back yard when she needed to go out.
In addition to regular tasks, Saundra played with Lucy and pampered her, and won her heart!
This was Lucy's first time to stay with Saundra, and Lucy seemed to feel right at home from the first moments we met her and her husband during the "meet & greet" time! They have a wonderful home environment and cared for Lucy as though she was their own! We are happy we have found them!:) Barbara :)
Sandra and her husband were amazing. My dog Brody is only a year old and can still get a little crazy and has some separation anxiety but was right at home with Sandra. Sandra kept me updated with text and pictures of Brody having so much fun and really feeling comfortable with them. He was so tired out from playing with their dog and at the dog park that he feel asleep at 5pm and slept all the way until the next morning after I got him. I will definitely use Sandra again.
Wonderful caring hosts - Saundra and Tom were lovely, took great care of our dog, sent texts every day with photos and updates, highly recommended.
Saundra is awesome!!
I am thrilled with the care that Mia received while in Saundra and Tom's care! They provided exercise, worried about her diet, and most importantly provided attention and affection. I am hoping the next time I need a sitter that they are available.
We left our 2 dogs Buck and Luke with them for almost a week. They took them both to the dog park everyday and they had a wonderful time! Saundra sent us daily pictures and updates on the boys. We would happily leave them with Saundra again!
This is our first time to use Saundra for our dog Scout. She was great about sending us updates and pictures at least daily and sometimes more often. She made sure he was exercised and interacted with and took him out to the dog park several times during his visit and for at least one walk a day. He loved playing with her dog, Maggie It was obvious he enjoyed his visit. He was well taken care of and I had great peace of mind while he was away from us. I liked the fact that Scout had a large yard to roam and play. I will not hesitate to use Saundra again if my dog needs a vacay!!
Saundra and Tom were the best! My dog, Cisco, stayed with them during the day for the better part of two weeks while I was at work. I was delighted to see how well he and their dog, Maggie, hit it off right from the very beginning. They took Cisco to the dog park every day when he stayed with them and I was frequently sent pictures. Saundra communicated very well and was very accommodating. Cisco seemed very happy to be with them and I knew I never had to worry about him. That gave me great peace of mind. What more could you ask for?? Highly recommend. Thank you!!!
Saundra and Tom were wonderful with our 2 big goofy, excitable dogs, Radar and Oakley. They sent pics daily of them playing with their dog, Maggie, and relaxing around the house on the couch watching movies and napping in their bed. It's always good to know that they're spoiled on vacation too! Obviously Radar and Oakley enjoyed their time, as they moped around our house for days afterwards. Would highly recommend and use again. Thanks again Saundra & Tom!
This is the first time I used dog vacay and Saundra made it a very positive experience. I was able to relax on my vacay knowing my Bella was being cared for in a loving home. Thank you Saundra.
Vader had a great stay and didn't want to leave. Saundra was a great host and I highly recommend her!
This was a great experience for Chaco and our family! Great home and environment; pleasant demeanor answered tons of this first-timer's questions; sent pictures an updates on a regular basis. Loved the care he received and will definitely rebook! ;
Saundra is great with your dog! Hunt was comfortable with her and her place almost immediately. She and her husband just treated him as their own. She also took him to the dog park often to let him play with her dog and others. I got updates and pictures throughout his stay, which was very nice. I would highly recommend Saundra to anyone looking to leave their dog with someone.

Ausha was happy to see Saundra and her dog Maggie again. She wagged her tail at the door. Dogs only do that when they are treated great!
I couldn't be happier. Saundra was great, providing me with updates and pics. Obviously a loving, caring home for dogs!
Sandy is a perfect example of why we like Dog Vacay so much! Ryeley was still playing with Maggie (their Goldendoodle) as we pulled in to pick him up. Sandy took the extra trouble to take them to a dog park in the area so they could run. It was clear when we picked him up that Ryeley had found true friends!

The location was in a small subdivision with an amazing fenced in yard! We also appreciated the flexibility she allowed us in pick-up times. Will definitely use Sandy again when we are in the area!
Saundra and her husband were amazing! We are on a six week road trip with our two large dogs and this was our first time using any kind of sitter so we could do some touristy stuff without our babies. They were great with the dogs, one of which has separation anxiety and even growled when he first got there (much to our embarrassment). But they brought him around and sent a picture to let us (the worried parents) know they were doing well. Can't tell you how much we appreciated it! Would definitely use them again if we are ever in the area! Thank you!
What to do with two dachshunds for a week (wouldn't dream of putting in a kennel!)... who require lots of love and attention and an occasional lap to nap on?? Saundra! She is the absolute definition of kind, patient, dog lover. Both dogs were in perfect spirits when they came back home from staying with Saundra, her husband Tom and their adorable labradoodle, Maggie. I was worried that my male standard who we adopted from a rescue shelter a year ago would be aggressive. Saundra proposed a meet and greet to make sure we would all be comfortable with the arrangement. Perfect. Max was all bark and hackles upon entering their home, but Maggie playfully postured "catch me if you can little man!" and they were off on a grand chase outside in their massive back yard.

Of course they were fed, let out and exercised daily, but most importantly, they were loved. Without reservation, I will gladly call upon them again!
