Sandra watched our pups for 11 days while we were away and they have an amazing vacay! Our pups loved exploring Sandra's back yard and lounging on the couch. This was our third time using Sandra as a host and our dogs always love seeing her! She even took them for baths at Petsmart and bought a little fleece shirt and toy for our tiny chihauhau when she was cold! We would definitely recommend her! She loves our dogs as her own!

Amazing. This was Umka's second stay with Sandra and I must say that she is able to handle my special needs dog (severe allergies) with the same level of care and concern that he would get at home.

I can't stress enough how important this is.

Sandra will treat your pup as family and will give all of her attention and love during their stay - I was at total peace while we were away knowing this.

Thank you Sandra!

This was the first time we were leaving our recently adopted 2yr old mix, Akira, with anyone. We couldn't have asked for anyone better than Sandra! Right from the first time we met her she put us at ease with the genuine love she showered on Akira. Sandra's place is like a little doggie heaven - beautiful fenced in backyard for the explorers and lots of spaces throughout the house for the loungers :) Throughout the stay Sandra made sure we didn't miss Akira by regularly sending us photo & video updates. Akira came back from her stay looking so happy that I'm already looking forward to the next time she gets to stay with Sandra for a vacay :)

Sandra did a great job. Dropped him off on Friday and picked him up Monday. He didn't even seem too excited to see me - I think he had a great time. Clearly very tired from the exercise. She sent us pictures over the weekend.
Sandra was great!
We were nervous because we had never left our dog with anyone else (not even family) before his stay with Sandra.
He had a super time, was very calm and happy when we picked him up, and Sandra allayed our fears by sending us thoughtful e-mail updates about him while we were away.
We definitely plan to book with Sandra again!

Flexible with scheduling. Our dog had a great time.
Our dogs stay with Sandra was great! She was very open to all the little quirks our dogs have and all of our requests. She's easy to message and responds quickly. Sandra picked the dogs up at the start of their vacay and send us pictures right away so we could how happy they were settling into her home. It shows how much she loves dogs in the great care she provided for our three. We would definitely book with Sandra again!

Sandra was so kind and caring for my son Umka. He didn't want to leave!

She regularly sent updates with videos and pictures, he looked so comfortable. Umka can require some extra attention - feeding him medicine and putting on clothes for him, and Sandra did everything to keep him looking and feeling his best.

Would book with her again in a heartbeat and I would recommend others to do the same. It really doesn't get much better.

Sandra has become a good friend not only to our two dogs, but to us as well. There really aren't words to describe how much we value her friendship and devotion to us and our pups. We are from Kentucky and wish we could take her with us. If you are looking for someone to take care of your pets---LOOK NO FURTHER! She is the best we have ever had and probably will ever have.

Most sincerely, Steve & Charman Webb

As usual Sandra was fantastic! She is so flexible and accommodating. We feel so lucky to have a great second home for our dog when we need it!
I know I must sound repetitive, but honestly IF you are considering Sandra, then you have hit the jackpot for your pet. This lady goes above and beyond anyone we have ever had keep our pets. She is honest and really cares for our three pups. She is also very very responsible. We are from KY and there is no one that has kept our pets that can even come close to Sandra. Most sincerely, Charman & Steve Webb.

Outstanding as usual. Our dogs love her just as much as they do us. She goes way beyond what one would expect. She calls things to our attention that we hadn't noticed. We will be calling her again.
Sandra is awesome! So incredibly accommodating and wonderful to my furry babies. I felt like she genuinely cared for both my 18 year old and 8 year old pups and sent me daily updates (both photos and videos). I would definitely (and am actually trying to) book her again!

Thank you Sandra!!!

Once again Mojo had a great time with you! Thanks for spoiling him, and taking him to the beach. You always go one step above and beyond, making it easier for us to go out of town. We really appreciate it!!!

Sincerely,

Keri

Simply, the best one will ever find.
We can never say good enough things about Sandra. She is caring for our pets with updates which we really appreciated. This lady goes way above and beyond what anyone could expect. We r privileged to know her and call her our friend. Our dogs love her just like they do us. No worries when Sandra has them.

I'm so happy to have found Sandra. This was the first time I had needed to find someone to look after my dog, Taz, while I was out of town for a few days. Sandra is clearly very experienced and savvy when it comes to taking care of dogs. She let Taz come around in her own time, allowing her to explore her lovely house and back yard. She treated my girl as if she were her own and sent me photos and updates about how she was doing. When I picked Taz up, it was clear that she was very comfortable with Sandra. I'm planning to have Taz stay with Sandra when I go on vacation in the summer for three weeks. My only "concern" is that Taz may not want to come back to me!

We've used Sandra several times and our dog always loves to see her! She's reliable and takes great care of the dog. She also sends pictures and updates. We'll be using her again next time we travel
Our black lab, Mallory, had another terrific visit with Sandra! She gets so excited to go in the car with her. Sandra sends us a few pictures/updates while we are away, and the dog comes back clean and happy!
Sandra does an outstanding job with our pups. She truly loves them and they love her too. We NEVER worry when they are with her. We KNOW
they are well taken care of and they enjoy their time with her. She has taken the time to learn their distinct personalities and habits. She is their friend and ours.

Sandra was so loving and thoughtful with our two dogs. She sent text updates and pics of the dogs while we were away. Sandra did such a wonderful job with our dogs, we never worried about them. We wouldn't hesitate to leave our dogs with her again. From beginning to end, our experience with Sandra was fantastic! Email communication was quick and she answered all questions and addressed all our concerns we had with our dogs. Thank you again!!!

Really nice to have Biggie in such personalized care he really came away from the boarding experience with a nice calm demeanor and great behavior. I think he's actually better now than when I brought him there.
If you are looking for a puppy babysitter---look no further. Our pups love her and we do too. She's so kind and thoughtful. She treats our pups like we do, part of her family. She usually takes pics and we can tell they are always glad to see her. She takes the time to understand each of our pups' peculiarities and loves them for it. She's brave enough to undertake our three rowdies at the same time. We are particular about our girls and Sandra is simply outstanding. No one could possibly be any better. We are quite sincere in our appreciation for her.

Dear Sandra--

Thank you for watching our black lab, Mojo, again this weekend. It was so helpful that you came to our home to pick him up (great suggestion that the dogs are more comfortable that way), and were flexible with return times! We enjoyed seeing the phone text updates with photos too. You are such a caring, thoughtful person. We knew he was in good hands with you and that we didn't have to worry a minute about his care.

Sincerely,

Keri

Just picked up a very happy, tired pooch. I couldn't ask for more. Thanks!!
Sandra definitely loves dogs and we're really happy she did such a great job taking care of our pup. Sandra kept us updated the whole time with pics and messages. Our dog had a great time!
I have used Sandra several times for our dog Mallory. She is fantastic. Mallory loves to be there! She gets incredibly excited when she sees Sandra each time! Sandra takes her for walks and to the ocean, and spends a lot of time with her. She also sends pictures so you know she's doing ok while we're gone.

We can never say enough good things about this wonderful caring lady. She truly goes above and beyond in seeing to the needs as well as the wants of our precious puppies. We are so lucky that she is a member of DogVacay. We never worry when they are with her.

Wonderful experience for my dog Dottie! I was perfectly at ease knowing that Sandra would provide a loving environment for Dottie for the week that I was away. Thank you, Sandra!
Sandra kept our three while we went for a cruise. We can't say enough about how good she is. Our oldest was having some skin issues and Sandra resolved the problem with a change in dog food. She kept us updated with comments and pictures. We think they had as good of a vacation as we did. She is sooo loving with them. When they came home Sandra started to leave and our pups wanted to go with her! She is the best we have ever had. If you are lucky to get her----I wouldn't hesitate one minute. We will definitely ask for her again!

Last week Buster stayed with Sandra for the first time.....he did very well.....Sandra has an excellent dog friendly house with a huge outdoor space to explore...what makes this babysitter so good is that it is 24/7 supervision....at first I was a bit reluctant because she only takes one dog at a time but when I picked Buster up he was very comfortable with Sandra and in his surroundings...he came home very happy......I will definitely recommend her & plan to make this Buster's new babysitter

Sandra is a dog over with a phenomenal, mountain side home in Pacifica perfect for a dogvacay. We booked one night and Sandra had no business qualms about the fact that our pup's stay was more than a single 24-hour period.

She is a dog lover first and Stella (the pup) seemed in all respects to have had a great time on this dogvacay.

Thanks Sandra, I would recommend you to any dogvacay users.

Cheers!

Sandra was fantastic with my dog. She sent me daily pictures and put my mind at ease while I was traveling. I was so happy to find someone who genuinely seemed to care about my pup's well-being as much as I do. I certainly plan to book with Sandra again in the future!

Sandra is absolutely great! She called after picking up our pups (3) and told us they had arrived safely and were doing well. Then she brought them back to us and told us how soon she would be there. She gave us updates to tell us how they were doing. We have one dog who is a little temperamental and this lady had no problems with her. We found her to be loving, caring and very honest.

We were happy to find Sandy was available for the holiday weekend! She was welcoming, friendly, flexible and accommodating. She does not have any dogs of her own and gives yours her full attention. Your dog will make themselves at home at her place. I know our black lab was well cared for while we were away. She even provided delivery service at no charge. She said it helps them acclimate. They feel like they are going on an adventure, rather than being abandoned at drop-off. When she dropped our dog back at home, she got down at his level, snuggled him and told him how much she was going to miss him. How sweet is that?!

Sandra was amazing! Her calm, relaxed nature is absolutely perfect for pets. I was a little nervous my energetic pup would be too much of a pain. Once Sandra opened the door of her beautiful home on top of the hill and surrounded by nature, I felt much better. She graciously gave up a couple toys to let my dog do his favorite thing - destroy. She even sent a couple adorable pics of their adventure.

My dog would have happily stayed longer. He reluctantly followed me out to the car then promptly went to sleep. I'm so happy that we found Sandra and are confident we can safely leave our dog for another adventure the next time we're out of town. Thanks Sandra and Dog Vacay!

Sandra is clearly great with dogs and our dog came home happy, healthy and clean from a bath! She is very active and sends lots of texts and pictures.
Sandra watched our golden retriever for the weekend. He had a whole house and large space outdoors to run around and it seemed like he had a lot of fun. Sandra sent us updates via text message so we knew all was right.
