About Sandy

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I offer care for medium size and large size dogs. I have one dog, a sweet female Golden Retriever. I will provide care to up to two additional dogs at a time. I love dogs and can't think of a better way to spend my time. I have a large home and attached fenced yard. Dogs staying at our home are treated as one of the family and unless directed otherwise by the owner, stay in our bedroom at night just like our dog.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the design of my fence I cannot accept small dogs for care as they can walk through the railing and escape from the yard.

Prospective clients should know I will only accept neutered and spayed dogs and they must be reliably housebroken. They must also be clean and groomed. Dogs with nails that need trimming or with matted fur are uncomfortable. Not only is lack of grooming unfair to the dog, they can become temperamental or aggressive due to their discomfort. Dogs also must be current on vaccinations, and be on a flea/tick preventative.

Only friendly, non-aggressive dogs will be accepted for boarding or daycare

Prior to accepting reservation requests clients should plan on a meet and greet so we can discuss their dog's needs and to ensure compatibility with my dog and comfort level in my home. It is for the benefit of the owner and dog.

My three year old Labradoodle Sammie's "vacay" with Sandy was her first with a host and it worked out very well. Sandy's home has a well maintained fenced-in yard and her house is clean and organized inside. Her own dog, Story, was sweet and friendly to both me and my dog. Sandy texted me a couple of times daily with photos and updates. This really put me at ease. I would definitely recommend Sandy and book with her again!
Couldn't imagine better care & service! Highly recommended by my dog!!;)
A wonderful experience for both Bastian and us! Sandy kept us updated with photos and emails...we knew he was being well cared for during his stay. She made adjustments in her home for Bastian to feel comfortable and less anxious.
We will definitely use her services again .
Sandy was a wonderful host! She was very responsive from the first inquiry and was very flexible with dates for boarding. I loved being kept posted on how my two dogs were doing. And, I loved the fact that she had a fenced in back yard in what I consider the nicest neighborhood in Barre. I also really like that she will only board 2 dogs along with her own very sweet dog. I am highly confident that boys had a great stay, a lot of personal attention and playtime outside, and will definitely be using her again.

Sandy was WONDERFUL! She took my big guy Juno on a very short notice, and was more in tune to his needs than myself at the time. Her dog, was so sweet and made my big guy Juno feel right at home. Sandy THANKS SO MUCH! Your a life saver. She even text me a photo to show Juno was very relaxed and feeling right at home. Thanks again Sandy.
Sandy puts you at ease immediately. She has a good size yard for the dogs and a beautiful home. Our large black lab was happy as could be staying with Sandy for three days. Thanks for the loving care and we'll see you again for sure!
Sandy is wonderful; I have total confidence that Mabel has the best care while she is with Sandy. I would recommend her highly for any of your doggies daycare needs.
My two Goldens were immediately comfortable both with Sandy and her dog Story. They played well and made themselves at home. I am sure they will do well during their upcoming one week stay!
Excellent, great host, personal service.
This was our first experience with Sandy and DogVacay. It was entirely positive. Sandy sent us photos of Pepper and updated us on how things were going. Pepper clearly enjoyed her time at a very dog friendly home. Story, Sandy's dog, was a delight as well.

We will certainly be bringing Pepper back to Sandy and Story again.
Bentley told me he had a great time with Sandy while we were in Portugal for 2 weeks! Before we left, Sandy made sure to know about Bentley- his habits, likes, routine, medical issues, food, so she could make him comfortable during the visit. We visited so it wouldn't be new when we left him.

We heard from Sandy via e-mail and pictures regularly, which reassured us that Bentley was fine. That was very sweet. She has a large fenced in area for the dogs. Bentley likes to play with other dogs and Sandy has a lovable golden retriever.

We highly recommend leaving your valuable family member/ pet with Sandy and Les for a home experience. We felt good that Bentley would sleep in his own crate, have his own toys and be with people who really enjoy dogs while we were away.
No kennels for Bentley!! Thank you Sandy.
