About Andrew

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Andy and I recently lost my companion of 14 years, a black lab-mix named Sunny. We had a dog when I was growing up, and my ex-wife and I had 3 Chihuahuas, but Sunny was the first dog that was truly my own. I can't tell you how much I miss him.

I had not planned on getting a dog, but when a girl I knew said that he was too much trouble, I asked her to let me try him for a few weeks. That was about fourteen years ago.

Walking, hiking, and swimming with Sunny soon became my (and his, of course) favorite activity. The bare spots that he had chewed in his hind quarters (from nervous tension) soon disappeared, and he became noticeably more relaxed and well behaved. He also stopped trying to run away.

She was amazed at the change in Sunny, but the truth was that like her, I did not appreciate how much exercise a dog like him needed, especially when young. It was just something I enjoyed doing. We were good for each other.

Update September 9th: I have hosted 5 dogs so far, and have enjoyed it very much. Taking a dog for an extended walk was not my idea of fun when I was younger, but it is now.

Two of the dogs sat by the door after their owners left (I was told that mine would do that). All of my canine guests, however, when they saw their leash, happily jumped into the car, and by the time we got back we were fast friends.They like to see new places just like we do.


Like my dog, and the ones I have watched, your dog has free roam of the house and furniture. I also have a small fenced in area (about 20'x30') connected to the deck out back. I use this to let them out first thing in the morning or late at night.


I never had to leave Sunny with anyone that I didn't know and it is tough to put myself in your position. I would have to have a lot of confidence in that person, so please don't hesitate to ask about any concerns that you may have, or to stop by and see the place and introduce me to your dog. Also, ask about a discount from the nightly rate for extended stays, and for more than one dog, especially if you have dogs that have a routine together as far as walking and feeding.

Andrew was great with Tyson, he kept me updated with pictures and what they did during the day. I felt comfortable leaving Ty with him. I would definitely recommend him and use his services again.
