About Sandy

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! My name is Sandy and I have an eight-year-old Basset Hound/Labrador cross named Chelsea. We are fun and very easy going. We love going on hikes and exploring the outdoors. We also enjoy leisurely walks around our neighborhood, which is on the New Westminster/Burnaby border. We love all dogs! If there's something in particular you'd like to do, just let us know and we'll make it work!

Sandy is a great sitter for Champ. She is always our first choice and this time (like all others) her communication with us was perfect while away. We got daily pictures and peace of mind.
Sandy was awesome and a super host for our dog. She met with us prior to make sure our dog would be a good fit and obviously she was. Thanks Sandy for helping us out. We'll be sure to call you again for her next stay!
This was our third booking with Sandy and per usual everything perfect! I always receive regular updates and pics of the dogs while we are away. I know our boys are in good hands. And they love her adorable dog Chelsea! Highly recommend!! :)
This was the second time we've booked with Sandy and we couldn't be happier. We were able to relax and do activities with the in laws during our visit to Victoria. It was so nice to know our boys were in such good hands. Sandy is very communicative and sends plenty of texts and picture updates. It's that peace of mind that keeps me coming back. In fact, I've just booked her again this weekend! She's allowed us the opportunity to give my in laws, (from the UK), a vacation to remember. :)
Winston had a great stay with Sandy and her dog Chelsea. Sandy sent us photos and updates of Winston and we knew he was being well cared for. I would certainly book with Sandy again and would recommend her dog vacay to others.
Sandy was so great. She helped me out last minute during the Holidays and was so accommodating with my dog Chance when my flights were delayed. I got plenty of photo updates to know he was having a good time. She provided great care and piece of mind!
Sandy is so wonderful with our dog. I feel completely comfortable leaving him with her each time. She keeps in touch with how he's doing, and our dog always comes back happy! Thanks so much for taking such good care of our little man!
Sandy and her lovely dog Chelsea stayed in our home with our two Basset Hounds. I got several texts and pictures throughout her stay. It was comforting to see our boys feeling relaxed at home. Everything went smoothly and our place was clean and tidy. I would definitely recommend Sandy's services to anyone.
Sandy did a great job with Bruce! Couldn't have asked for more!
Sandy was great and we couldn't ask for more in a petsitter. She is friendly and great with Champ. She came to do a 'meet and great' so that we could share all of his habits and show her around the house for while we were gone. Communication was always fast both before and during the trip, so we left knowing that our pet was in safe hands.
I feel so lucky to have found Sandy here on DogVacay. Sandy and her dog, Chelsea, kept my dog happy and busy over the weekend. My dog came to me as a rescue just a few months ago and this was our first weekend apart since his adoption. This could've been a nerve racking experience for both myself and my dog, Nikan, but it was far from it thanks to Sandy. It was such a relief knowing that Nikan was being cared for so well while I was away.
Sandy and her dog were great pet sitters for our dog Cujo! He was well looked after and we appreciated seeing the daily pictures of him. I would highly recommend Sandy!!
Sandy was so amazing and accomodating. She has this calm and relaxed way about her and you can tell she loves dogs. My house was spotless and you could tell our dog was given TLC and exercise while we were away. I loved the daily photos it was a very nice touch. I will be definately asking to use Sandy and Chelsea again and will recommend DogVacay. Thank you!
Sandy was the perfect choice for taking care of our dog while we were away. It was my first time using the site and Sandy was quick and helpful in setting up Mochi's stay. She provided adorable pictures and even managed to work in a hike with her own dog to ensure Mochi's vacation was complete.
The dogs were so happy! Sandy sent me many pictures and it eased my mind as my little ones are usually always with me! I have a Yorkie and a Bichon and they love cuddles and received plenty.

Her dog Chealsie was so adorable and my kids met new friends
