About Sandy

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I do exactly as my name implies, IN YOUR HOME pet sitting. Overnight or just an hour or two a day. I feel your animals have less stress if they are kept in their own home and with their own routine. Rates vary as to where you are located, what you need done and the number of animals you have. We can discuss all that when you contact me. I always do a meet and greet so we can talk before accepting any reservations unless you are a repeat customer. So first time users, we will need a few days to set everything up. I have been around animals my entire life and have always owned at least 2. I have been actively involved in rescues for the last 20 years. I co-founded ODTR (One Dog At A Time Rescue). I love animals of all sizes, shapes, and breeds. I will give your pets all the love they would expect if they were one of my own. They would not have to suffer the stress of boarding and can stay in their own home. This is especially good for an older or ill pet. I can also transport an animal to and from a vet if you can't do so. I can also administer medicines. I own an epileptic dog which is why I see a need for this service in my area. I can either stay in your home most of the day for 1 to 14 days or I can visit and let your dogs out, take for a walk if necessary, feed, spend time with them for up to 3 times a day. However, having me stay in your home gives you
more for your money. Book through dog vacay and you get insurance. Please read their policies.
PLEASE NOTE: I offer limited coverage area during the week (Sunday night - Thursday night) to only the KOSCIUSKO COUNTY, IN area. Also, note my prices listed are only for 1 - 3 animals. When you send me your information, number of animals, and dates needed in a custom quote, I will send you the rates based on number of animals, etc.

Sandy did a great job taking care of our dogs. We will definitely be contacting her again in the future.
Always reliable. The best friend our puppers have when we are gone.
Sandy is absolutely awesome!!! She took such great care of my puppies while we were gone and she checked in with us to let us know how they all were doing. I will be using her in the future! Thanks again Sandy for making this a great experience!!!
We are so happy we have Sandy to care for Bentley! It's always a comfort to go away and not have to worry about him. She is so wonderful and he is a happy and healthy dog when we get back. Thanks Sandy!!
Once again Sandy did an awesome job taking care of Bentley! It's so nice to be able to go away and know he is being taken care of with no worries. I think he misses her :) Thanks again Sandy!
My Pup loves Sandy. He is putty in her hands. He acts happy when Sandy is with him and loves her extra TLC. Sandy babies Pup as I see how he acts when I return home.... he wants me to coddle him after he received a lot of hands attention beyond the basic needs. Sandy understands my Pup and is careful with his post surgery spots. Sandy is kind and sincere. I am comfortable leaving town if Sandy is with Pup. I am very grateful Sandy understands dog behavior beyond their basic needs. THANKS!

This was our first experience having someone sit in our home and Sandy was wonderful! Our Yorkie gets so stressed when he is boarded so we knew we had to try something else. She has great communication and is very loving. Bentley even slept with her.:) I am so happy we found Sandy and will definately use her again! Thanks Sandy!

Sandy was great! Plan to use her again.
Sandy stayed with our dogs for a week while we were gone. It is so nice knowing our boys are in good hands with the added bonus of our house being occupied. We like having her come to the house so much more than taking the dogs to the kennel. I don't know what we'd do without her!

Once again Sandy was wonderful! I had some concerns since my two girls had starting getting into some fights in the week leading up to our trip. But as usual Sandy had it under control! Can't imagine going on vacation without having Sandy watch my furchildren.

Sandy is just wonderful with my guy and girl. I don't worry about them at all. Anyone thinking about using Sandy as their sitter, I would highly recommend her. Lori Barton
Sandy was great! She obviously loves caring for dogs and took wonderful care of our energetic 2 yr old golden. She spent lots of time playing and walking with him and provided many details of their time together once we got back. It was nice to hear the details. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of a dog sitter in the Warsaw area.

As usual, everything was great at home. Rosco even tried leaving with them after we got home. I'm not sure how to feel about that, lol. At least I know they are happy and well cared for when we are gone :-)
Once again Sandy had done a wonderful job with Kato and Reagan. It's such a relief knowing your best friends are being well cared for. Sandy's the best.
Sandy was awesome! My three dogs can be a challenge - to say the least. Our youngest is a very very shy one year old pit bull. Sandy was patient with her and after two days they were the best of friends! I always worry when we leave our babies - after this experience with Sandy we won't worry again! Can't imagine leaving our babies with anyone else! Thanks Sandy for loving my babies - I think they miss you!

I've used Sandy several times and always been quite pleased. I highly recommend her for any dog sitting needs.
Thank you again!
As usual, no worries about my dogs while Sandy stays with them. I love being able to go away while my dogs are cared for at home.
Sandy loved my Pup. He rather be with her right now than me (ha!). I am so grateful to be able to go out of town and know that Pup is cared about and safe! This means so much to me. Sandy understands dogs and is in tune to what they need. They all need a little different handling. Thanks so much Sandy..... JL

I give Sandy 5 stars! She is wonderful with our dogs and we just feel so at ease knowing she's there with them. I certainly hope she's available the next time we have to get away.
My dogs love Sandy, and she had no issues taking care of my six pack of dogs. I love the fact that my huskies can stay home when we are away since they are definitely escape artists. This way I know they are in a securely fenced yard as I am sure at least one would figure out how to climb a chain link fence. They could easily slip out the front door as well. She is aware of this, and gladly enters through the garage instead of the front like we do to avoid escapes. We will definitely use Sandy for a future dog vacay :-)

Very professional. And wonderful with our dogs. Every dog in the house took to her immediately and she was not at all intimidated by the size of our dogs or the herd as a whole.
I have three maltese, one is a puppy mill dog, making her a special needs dog. Sandy was wonderful with her. I also have two boys and didn't worry about any of them at all. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sandy at all.
I was first enticed because I like the idea of having my dogs stay home but never looked into it because of what I thought it would cost. After looking for a traditional kennel on google, I was able to find Sandy through dogvacay.com. Prices were the same as taking our dogs to a traditional kennel but I think the services are much better. Sandy is very professional and takes time to understand your specific situation. We will definitely be checking her availability first before booking them into a kennel.
