About Andrea

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to our dog friendly home. We are a very responsible older couple in central Phoenix who are available to watch your sweet puppies. We love all dogs and will treat them with tender loving care. We live in a large one story patio home with a nice back yard with lots of shade and a block fence. We are yards from the bridal path and the canal to take your puppies for a walk.

We require a meet and greet prior to your dog staying with us for the first time. We do this in order to make sure we understand the needs of your pet and to reduce your and their stress level.

We have a dog door and lots of room for your dog to play. My husband and I do work from home quite a bit but there are times we have to leave the house for business. We are homebodies most weekends. We have used dogvacay in the past and love the service. We know how difficult it can be to find someone responsible to take care of our pets and we want to help.

We have two older shy rescue cats so we ask that your dog not be aggressive with our kitties. They won't be aggressive with you dog... sometimes we think they like dogs more than us!

My Augie had a great vacay with Andrea! I got pics and videos every day. I will definitely book with them again!
by far the best doggie sitter we've ever had! Thank you!
Andrea and Jim are wonderful! So happy to have found them. Chloe (10 year old Australian Shepherd) was very well cared for and happy. She was able to play with other well behaved dogs and go out a doggie door when needed. They also texted a Pic daily. Thank You Again!! Absolutely 5 Paws from Chloe!!

So happy to have found Andrea to keep Molly while we visited Grand Canyon, since we are out of state. She kept me informed as to how Molly was doing with her eating while taking special meds. I know Molly had a great time because she came home a happy doggie.
It was so easy to set up everything with Andrea while we were still home in NC. So once arriving in AZ contacted her with the dates I needed her to keep Molly.
DogVacay has fantastic sitters to make both dog and owners happy.
Thanks to Andrea for the great care given to Molly.
We hope to use her some more during our stay in AZ.

First time to leave our dog with strangers. He had a wonderful time, and I was comfortable knowing he was getting great care and attention. I appreciated getting the frequent pics and updates, too. Very grateful.
This was our first experience with DogVacay and with having our 8 month old puppy boarded (for 12 days). We were able to meet Andrea and Jim before our decision and felt good about our choice right from the start. We found every aspect of the stay to be excellent.

Once we left our puppy, we had regular updates of her adjustment and details of daily behavior, including photos. With other dogs there, along with ours, this made her stay even more enjoyable. She came home happy and secure.

In sum, we were very satisfied with our choice and the care that was provided; and we would certainly recommend this home to others.

Andrea and Jim are THE BEST. I can actually enjoy my time away/vacation because I know my dog is being cared for. Lots of space to run around and play, lots of love, and even hikes! I won't use anyone else but Andrea and Jim.
Andrea and Jim watch our three dogs while we were gone for the Christmas holiday, we came home and they were completely happy and exhausted! She sent plenty of pictures and videos while we were away, making it easier to be away from them during Christmas :-) we will definitely be using them again!

Our pooch came home bright eyed and clean. I think she had a great vacation.
we very much appreciate the care given to Lucy. we especially appreciate the daily updates. these are great people who love dogs!
I will definitely use Andrea & Jim again. I felt very comfortable leaving Hugo with them. All the pictures reassured that Hugo was happy & having fun!!
We were hesitant to leave our dog for the weekend with strangers, but Andrea and Jim were amazing! We had a meet and greet before our trip. Meeting Andrea and Jim put our mind at ease. They welcomed our dog with open arms. They sent us updates throughout the weekend. They provided a safe home for our pet, and took great care of him. We will definitely use their service again.

I have an older dog with special needs, and those needs were met or exceeded. I have another dog who is very sicial, and this was the perfect solution for her. They were both able to walk freely instead of being in a kennel. Since it was my first visit, I was sent updates letting me know how they were doing.

Thank you so much for taking care of Teddy. He came home happy and content. The pictures you sent were awesome and set our mind at ease while we were away. We will definitely be asking if you and Jim can watch him again for future vacays.
Andrea and her husband were great with Maggie. I was nervous about using DogVacay as it was our first time and our original sitter was unable to watch her at the last minute, but they really put my mind at ease. I really appreciated all the pictures and videos they sent too. It was good to see how much Maggie enjoyed her vacation.

The BEST!!!!!
The Best!!!
excellent care for our doggies
Piper loved staying with Andrea and Jim! They took great care of him and eased my worries.
We had an excellent experience with Jim and Andrea! We have a 110 pound hyper Goldendoodle ....we were worried to leave him with anyone new..but after the meet and greet with them we felt at ease. They also sent us photos and let us check in with them as often as I needed. :) They were very flexible with the pick up and drop off times which we appreciated since we were traveling by car and sometimes you can't predict traffic! We will be using them again for our next out of town vacation for sure!

Jim and Andrea managed our puppy very well while we vacationed in Hawaii. She came home happy and healthy. Many thanks!
Another excellent stay with Andrea and Jim. Suki is entirely comfortable with them and we enjoy receiving the daily updates and photos.
Jim and Andrea were fantastic hosts for Juniper and she really enjoyed being at their house. They were easy to coordinate with and you can tell they really love hosting dogs! I would definitely recommend Jim and Andrea!
Super! Andrea & Jim are real dog lovers. Our Shih Tzu Suki fit into their home, with their own dog and cat, as though she were in her own home. They sent us pictures every day. They called immediately when Suki started limping (she's an old lady, arthritis) and we authorized medication. When we picked her up after 11 days, Suki was calm, smelled wonderful, and fell right to sleep in my lap as though nothing had been out of the ordinary. Andrea & Jim's home is perfect for visiting pups--doggie door, ample yard. We will have Suki stay with them again. We are so grateful to have found this loving couple to take care of our little one while we were away. Betsy & Vic

Jim and Andrea were kind enough to open their home to our dog, Bailey, over the holiday and treated her like one of their own. They sent us updates with photos and took her out on a fun hike. They were excellent communicators and you can tell they love animals. We'd definitely recommend them to other pet owners!

Andrea and Jim love dogs and provided safe surroundings for our "little ones". We do plan to use them again. They kept us up-dated with photos and messages, assuring us that all was well.
It was a couple days before flying across country and my regular dog sitters cancelled due to family emergency. So I was forced to do a last minute booking. Lucky for me, Jim and Andrea had an opening. They were very understanding and took my pride and joy in. They sent me daily pictures and texts updating me on how my baby girl was doing. Any questions I had they were very responsive in a short time. I strongly recommend that anyone considering a dog sitter in the north Phoenix area should consider this lovely home!

Andrea took such good care of our little dog Bailey! She sent me several photos throughout the day and took her on a couple of walks for the day. From the initial meet and greet, I could tell Andrea and Jim loved animals and were trustworthy and genuine. Bailey came home happy and tired from a fun day. Thanks Andrea!

I really appreciate the care Andrea and Jim took of my puppy. They were flexible and so kind with drop off and pick up times (we need to be out of town from early morning). They sent me daily pics and text to let me know how she was doing. I highly recommend Andrea and Jim as your next dog sitter you won't have a thing to worry about when it comes your dogs! Thanks for taking such good care of her!

Our dog had a wonderful time with Andrea, Jim and Cherie. They love dogs and Pete did very well with them. I would definitely use them again. Thanks Andrea and Jim!
We have a rescue pup who can be a bit shy and nervous in new surroundings so we're very careful about choosing a sitter. Lucky for us, we found Andrea and Jim...awesome folks who took wonderful care of our pup. From the moment we scheduled a meet/greet all the way through the time we were away, the experience was great. They were patient, caring, thorough and professional. The home and yard were spacious, welcoming and secure. You can be sure we'll be contacting Andrea again and would not hesitate to give the highest recommendation for anyone considering leaving their pup in her care.
