We use Sandy consistently for our overnight travel. We know our Sophie is in great hands and great company.
We had an extremely rewarding experience with having Sandy watch Stella while we were on our vacation. I felt very comfortable when we visited her in her home initially. I loved receiving the daily pictures and when we came to pick up Stella at the end of the week she seemed happy and even more outgoing after having been around other people and other dogs. At home now she is even more social with our own family. She will go and lay with my husband and kids when I am gone and not just sit by the window and wait for me to get back! I would definitely use Sandy to care for Stella again!

Our little Sophie was moping around all alone after we picked her up and got home. She missed her other family.....which tells me Sandy, Chris, and their daughter treat as their own. A great feeling to know our 'children' are treated so well when they are away.

She's the best!

Sandy was wonderful. The meet and greet went well and we had no problem giving her a key to our home for the daily visits. Our puppy Pepper loved her and did well with Sandy. She sent me a text each day after her visit. We will definitely use Sandy again.

Sandy was so patient and caring with my little old guy who wasn't too sure about mom leaving him! She kept me posted with texts and pictures to help ease my mind!
Sandy watched my Murphy for a day of daycare. We set up a meet n greet a few days before so he would be more comfortable when he stayed. I was running late the morning I was supposed to drop him off and Sandy was so flexible nice about it! She was nice to Murphy and gave me updates while he was with her. I will definitely be using her again and I couldn't be happier with Murphy's stay!

It was a pleasure to work with Sandy and our dog was very comfortable with her family. Highly recommend Sandy.
Sandy and her family welcomed Sasha with open arms. Thank you Sandy for your flexibility and patience! You were a godsend for the three of us!
Sandy is a great dog sitter! Our pups were healthy and happy when we picked them up. Sandy is very accommodating; our dogs require medicine and have dietary restrictions. They looked happy and relaxed in all the pictures we received. They even got a pic with the Easter Bunny!

Sandy and her family are awesome! My babies are right at home there and are treated like part of the family! Sandy also is great about sending cute pictures throughout their stay!
Your family was so nice and good to Leo. We feel very comfortable leaving him for our 10 day trip. Thanks so much.
Sandy and Chris are true pet lovers. They open their homes and hearts to our beloved pets and I know our Sophie is in wonderful hands when we are away. Always the best care and love.
Having Sandy take care of our little dog was a very positive experience all around. Not only was she a pleasure to deal with, she was also extremely flexible when we had to change our schedule leading up to our departure. Sandy and her family really love dogs and they treat them as if they are their own, with love and affection. We had zero anxiety about leaving our dog with her. One of the fun things on our vacation was getting daily text/photo updates of our dog. It was not only reassuring to receive photo's but also very entertaining to share with friends and family! We will definitely be using Sandy's services in the future next time we need a place for our dog to stay. Highly recommended!

This was my first time using any sort of "boarding" for my dog and Sandy and her family couldn't have made it any easier. She was prompt in responding to my questions before our trip and sent daily updates while we were away. I was able to enjoy my vacation knowing that my dog was being loved on and enjoying his "vacay."
I will be using Sandy (and her family) again!

Awesome experience! Cannot wait for my girls to stay with Sandy next time! Highly recommend.
Sandy and Chris were fantastic!

I really appreciate them taking time to meet our doggies on short notice. We hit it off immediately and they were very willing to work with me and focus on the individual personalities of the dogs.

Sandy and Chris are the best Christmas present ever!

This is Sophie's second home. Sandy and her family are attentive and truly enjoy hosting her. We love her and know any pet in her care is exceptionally pampered.
Our first time experience with DogVacay was awesome! Sandy was absolutely fantastic! When I first met her at our meet and greet it was obvious of how much she cared and loved animals. She was so accommodating to our schedule and we had great communication from start to finish. The cute update of pictures and texts reassured us of how well our little Izzy was taken care of, which made our trip even more relaxing. Needless to say we will be using Sandy many more times! Thank you Sandy! Walt, Susan, and Izzy

Sandy was excellent. She was flexible with drop off and pick up times. She is easy and quick to communicate. I could tell that Pixie had a fun time while we were away, playing with her new friends -- both humans and dogs. :) I would highly recommend Sandy! She provided a real "homey" experience for Pixie and that is exactly what we wanted. Many thanks, Sandy. We'll be in touch again soon!

Charger had a great time with Sandy and her family! I am very comfortable in knowing that Charger was well cared for and loved while we were away! Thank you so much Sandy and family!
This was our first time using DogVacay, but Sandy and her whole family were very helpful. We did a Meet & Greet before our reservation and Sandy was calm and welcoming and made me feel comfortable leaving Jack at their home. It was also reassuring to receive pictures and updates through text messaging while we were away. We could tell that Jack had just made himself at home! I would highly recommend Sandy H. and will be using her services again.

Sandy is absolutely amazing!! She was very kind to suggest and schedule some greet-n-meets to help Samson (our six-pound yorki-poo) to get to know her, and to help me feel comfortable about leaving him. This was our very first time leaving our little boy with someone. He is very skittish around other dogs, but Sandy and her family helped him to feel secure. Angel and Skittles did their part too (very friendly dogs). Sandy was great with communicating with us throughout the day, and we were thrilled when we receive a picture of our little boy from her. She made the whole experience a good one and her encouragement gave us the peace of mind we needed. I highly recommend Sandy and her services!! We are looking forward to Samson getting to know this family on a more frequent basis.

Our dogs Gordon and Oliver had a great time with Sandy and her family. This is their second stay with them. We enjoyed receiving pictures and updates from Sandy while we were away. Both of our dogs were very happy, playful and relaxed all the time and felt like at home. We would highly recommend Sandy to anybody who is looking for a loving family to take care of their doggies.

Our dogs Bella and Deacon stayed with Sandy and her family and had a wonderful time! From the flexibility in drop-off and pick-up to the photo updates throughout the weekend, we could not have asked for more! Next time we are in the area our pups will definitely be staying here again!

This is Sophie's third vacation with Sandy. We know she is in excellent hands and is showered with love and attention, play time, and Sophie loves going. When we picked her up and got home, we felt she wasn't ready to come home!!!
This is Sophie's second stay with Sandy & Chris. Sophie has a blast, lots of one-on-one attention, friends to play with, and love. Wonderful caregivers.
Sandy was great!! I was nervous that our quirky dog would be too much, but Sandy assured me it would be fine and of course it was. Sandy kept me posted daily with pictures and messages. She even let our dog sleep in her bed --- you won't find anyone more aimed to please and make your dog feel comfortable than Sandy and her family.

From extremely picky and protective furparents: Sandy and her wonderful family will take awesome care of your furbaby!

Our pup can be quite a handful, but Sandy handled him wonderfully. Sandy is great about sending pictures and updates. Her sweet family was so kind when we picked up our little man; you can tell they all truly enjoy having furry guests in their home.

Have Sandy keep your pup and you will not be disappointed!

We couldn't be happier with Sandy! Having a puppy which requires more effort than a fully trained dog is asking a lot of someone.... but Sandy was up to the task and our puppy was treated with lots of TLC, attention, and walking to keep her housebreaking routine intact.

Sandy is wonderful! Truly happy with her and would definitely recommend!!

This was our first dogvacay stay and the dogs loved it. Sandy is great to work with, including sending photos. I highly recommend her !
Our dogs were very happy. Stayed with Sandy for 10 days. Sandy and her family took a good care of them. Big thanks to them!!!. Very reliable and trust worthy dog sitter. Definitely recommend them to anyone.
Sandy and her family were so nice and helpful. It was last minute and she was able to accommodate us with no hesitation. We are new to the area and not used to boarding our dog with anyone. She sent us pictures and kept us update through text messaging. This really put our minds at ease. I will be using her services again.
