About Andrea

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live with my two male Labs. I have a three bedroom home with mostly tile through out the house. I have a nice size backyard to run around. My dogs are inside dogs, and hate to be outside without me.
I do work Mon thru Thur from 830-5. Friday I work 8:30-1 (usually) I usually come home for my one hour lunch break, so i work pretty close! I do have a couple of part time jobs after work. It is best if you can make a reservation at least 2 weeks in advance.
I use to voulenteer at the Houston Humane Society, and do foster care for them. I try to help out with Fort Bend Animal Control when they are over crowded or foster is needed. I am a foster for Almost Home and I usually have a foster dog.
Any sized dogs are fine, but the more they like to play with big dogs the better! My dogs sleep with me, so where ever your dog wants to sleep, it can!

*Sorry no Pits or Pit mixes due to my homeowners insurance (I had to sign a form when they found out I was watching dogs from my home. They found out after my insurance called them about a dog bite I had)*

*All dog need to be fixed*

*~~~ ? Leave me a review and I will discount your next stay. $10 off two nights or more *~~~ ?

*** Drop Off time is Mon after 6pm, Tues 5:30pm-6:30pm Wed after 6 Thurs after 6pm, Fri 2-6pm (could be later also), Sat any time, Sunday before 6:30pm.
Pick up time is same as drop off time or earlier.
Example: If you are leaving on Tues AM, you need to schedule your drop off for Monday night.***

*** I only use dogvacay, some may use this site with another for more bookings. The max I can have is 3 dogs (unless they are from the same family) at one time. The only problem with taking on more dogs from another site like this is if something happens (dogvacay dog gets into a fight with rover dog) the insurance is NOT COVERED from either site!***

What to bring?
FOOD, Food bowl, Treats, if your dog is use to them. Bed or create if they sleep in one. Maybe their favorite toy too. I must have a LEASH and your dog needs to have tags or collar with a phone number on it. Dog's MUST be up to date on Rabies!!! Vet name and number. If you are going to be out of reach then an emergency contact number also.

*some pictures in my profile are dogs I have sat for through this company*
I also have a $10 off coupon (I believe it is for new clients only)...

We feel very comfortable leaving our dog with Andrea. Andrea has a great set up, Diamond enjoys being able to go in and out. He gets to play with the other dogs and is exhausted when we bring him home. Great job Joe & Barbara
Thanks for taking such good care of Tessy!
Excellent care!
Always a great experience!
Always a great experience!
Chloe had a great time. Will definitely go back
We absolutely love Andi and will continue to use her to watch our little girl. Daisy loves going there, and hates leaving. We trust her with Daisy and that peace of mind means a lot to us. Thanks Andi!
Always great care!
Always great care! Tessy is happy to see Andrea when we get there.
Oliver had a great time with Andrea and the other dogs. She is very good at managing multiple dogs in her home.
Called Andrea at the last minute to watch my rambunctious Australian Shepherd. She did a meet and greet, and agreed to watch him overnight. She sent pictures and updates, and Buddy was happy when I picked him up. I will definitely call her again!
I was very pleased with the overall service. Especially because we needed for someone to take care of our pets at the last minute. Enjoyed being updated on their care.
We contacted Andrea and she worked with us to take our Australian Shepherd RJ on short notice. I liked that she wanted to meet him first. She sent us pictures of him while we were on vacation and when we picked him up he was happy and smelled so good. I need to find out what shampoo she used! I would use her again.
Dadoo'stayed visit was seamless between his home and Andreas. He was contented and happy when we picked him up.
The pictures and text helped us to know he was having a happy day while we were gone.
Thanks Andrea for taking special care with our little guy.
Andy was great. She was able to take my little girl daisy at short notice over Thanksgiving. Daisy came back happy and tired. We would definitely use Andy again in the future.
Great care!
Tessy had a great time with Andrea. We are regular customers and plan to continue.
Andrea was a great host to our girl Paige. We received updated information and pictures every day. This was our first experience with DogVacay, but it won't be our last. We were very satisfied with Andrea. Thanks Andrea for taking such good care of Paige.
Andrea is a great host and we are very happy with the care she received.
Andrea is great to work with!
Great care and communiction.
Took great care of my dog. Reliable and good communication.
Took great care my dog. Great communication and follow up. Highly recommended.
Mattie had so much fun playing with Andrea's 2 labs that she came home and slept all day! It was great!! Andrea was so sweet and concerned that Mattie was not eating that she hand fed her, which I forgot to tell her that Mattie is not a good eater. It is nice to go out of town and know that my baby is well taken care of and having fun too! Thanks Andrea!
She sent many pics and was great with my baby, Kyla. She was friendly and her dogs were very sweet.
My dogs spent a week with Andrea and by their demeanor, they seem to have had a great time. I feel stress free knowing I can leave my sweet old boys for a week while I travel outside the country. Andrea allows me the luxury of no worries.
I'm thankful that she had the availability in her calendar.
Jack was happier at her house then he is at mine!!! He was sad to leave his friends. Thanks Andrea
Andi kept all 3 dogs without hesitation and welcomed them with open arms. They came home happy and relaxed, and we are more than thankful that we found Andi through dog Vacay!
Andrea was so amazing with our Boxer. Even though he was only there for day care she kept my husband and I updated on his stay through pictures. Her two dogs are very friendly and played great with my boxer. She even made homemade dog treats which my Boxer LOVED! I would definitely recommend Andrea to anyone needing a dog sitter.
Andrea is awesome. I would never hesitate to leave Elwood with her. I know he is getting much better care than any kennel could give him.
Andrea has been great with my dog Elwood and feel good knowing he has time to run and play as well as the attention he craves. It feels so much better than leaving him in a normal boarding situation. I'm not sure if he is happier with Andrea or me.
The dogs were pretty excited about a return visit to Andrea's home and very tired after we picked them up Sunday afternoon. I'm happy and relieved to have a reliable, safe place for our beagles when we travel.
Andrea and her roommate were great with Jack. They welcomed him into there house with open arms and made him feel more then welcome. When i picked him up he was clean and happy. Could not ask for more from a dogsitter. Thanks Andrea
Andrea was very pleasant in all our interactions and kept us posted for the week she boarded our dogs. I was extremely satisfied that they were well cared for and especially happy with their demeanor after the stay. If I leave them at a kennel, they come back traumatized. After their stay with Andrea, they were calm and happy. They played well with her own dogs and I plan on reserving more stays in the near future. This really allows us to plan more out of town trips without the guilt of leaving our boys in unfriendly hands.
Thanks Andrea!
Gracie had a wonderful time with Andrea and her dogs! Andrea communicated super quickly on all questions and checked in several times to let us know how Gracie was doing. It was wonderful to go away and know that she was in good hands:-)
Andrea is an awesome pet sitter! Her pups Billy Boy, Biscuit and her foster pup Mila were fabulous four-pawed hosts as well. We first used Andrea's service through Dogvacay when we had an extreme emergency. She was very flexible with our arrangements. The frequent updates and pictures she sent us of our pups were very reassuring to us. They slept the night away after we picked them up....a sign of the great time they had! We will definitely keep her as our pet sitter from now on.
Andrea was great from the minute we set up a meet-and-greet to the minute we picked up our dog from his vacay with her! Andrea made it so easy for us to leave town and not to have to worry about our dog. She sent pictures each day to let us know Bailey was doing just fine. Bailey came home very happy and very tired from all the playtime he enjoyed with Andrea's 2 other dogs. We would definitely use Andrea again!
