About Sandra

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have recently retired and have been involved in pet rescue most of my adult life. I have worked as a veterinary technician for more than 12 years and worked for the NC Veterinary Division of the Dept. of Agriculture, working directly with the State Veterinarian. I also evaluate pups at shelters, pull, transport and foster.

I have some experience with pups with separation anxiety, food aggression, resource guarding, and other issues as arise.

Our home is pet friendly and pets have full access. Our foster Australian Shepherd and our personal Aussie are restricted to the sun-room as she suffers from separation anxiety. I'm away from the house a max of 6 hours and not every day. We have crates, if needed, and baby gates and have a small play-yard. There are lots of toys and we spend many days out walking on the beach & swimming. The beach is very near our house. We also take nature walks on the trails nearby. Plenty of exercise for happy pups. Cuddles are also plentiful,

We look forward to being your pet's loving home away from home.

Always a pleasure having Sandra watch my baby. Thank you so much for being so wonderful!
FIVE STARS! Sandra's care was AWESOME! Our Richee (8 year old active Pom) warmed up to her very quickly and made himself at home. She provide lots of cuddles and walking to ensure he got his energy release. Her home is welcoming clean, very pet friendly and Her paw babies were very welcoming to Richee. She provided the loving environment that eased our hearts for leaving our dear boy.
Sandy made sure we're had pics and messages every day of him and their activities. Her home is very easy to find and is centrally located to Grand Strand activities. We will definitely contact her for our next visit to Myrtle Beach
Clearly Sandi loved having Knzi with her and it was obviously mutual. I felt the pups were safe and well cared for by Sandi.
Sandi is great....I would recommend her to any dog parent as she was truly loving, caring, kind, and certainly highly responsible for the care of my pet. I would not hesitate and will have her again take care of my dog, Jodee!
Sandi is THE BEST!!! My Daisy and Peanut can't wait for their next "Dogvacay" later this month. Such a pleasure to know I can travel out of town without a moment's worry or concern. Thank you Sandra!!
We were impressed with the communications which made us feel comfortable getting to know our sitter.
When we arrived she met us outside and our greyhounds felt right at home. Her dogs and ours apparently got along really well when they met later on. I loved getting the comments and pictures through out the week. Our sitter was very kind and caring and we have already asked her to keep them for us next year.
Although our stay was cut short because of Hurricane Matthew, our Gracie had a great stay with Sandra. We received plenty of photos and updates so we were confident that Gracie was being loved and cared for well. We will definitely use Sandra again when we return to Myrtle Beach in the future. Sandra was also helpful in suggesting an alternate route for evacuation which kept us from encountering a lot of congested traffic...thank you, Sandra!
How nice it was to go away and leave my dog with Sandi. I was completely at ease when I initially met her and knew my dog would be well cared for! Like most pet owners I dislike having to leave my dog. Sandi sent pictures and texts to keep me updated on Chloe's progress. She sat on the floor with Chloe while she ate and even allowed her to sleep in her bed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sandi to anyone needing dog care. I trust her so much I plan to use her again very soon!
Sandra was really great with Waffles. She responded quickly when she had a seizure. She stayed in contact with Karen and I and ensured that Waffles was safe and well cared for.
I was very happy with Sandra Brown. My dog is quite old and she was so patient and kind with her. My dog was good with going back a second day so I know the experience was positive.
Sandra B was a wonderful dog sitter. She was willing to take my 3 month old puppy who can be a lot of work. She sent me pics & updates daily so I did not worry. You will be lucky if she is available.
Thank you Sandra. Without your support, we had a great vacation. You are a great pet bones about it...
Pleasant sitter, great place for my dog. I think my dog happy to meet some new friends at the sitter house. Thank you Sandra.
Ms. Sandra was amazing! We could not have asked for a better experience. We've never used this service before, and we would absolutely use Sandra again. She is such a genuine person and so great with animals. She sent us updates every day, along with sweet pictures. Vinnie was a happy dog!
We will be using her again when we go back to the beach. Thanks, Karen
