About Andrea & Tim

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a married couple working from our apartment in Palms therefor all dogs have human and K9 companionship continuously. We have 3 small rescue dogs ready to welcome your own pet(s) for a stay & play vaca.

We enjoy all things outdoors, are avid hikers and love long doggie walks as a pack. We walk our dogs 4x daily for plenty of exercise & potty possibilities. Dependent upon each pet, extra walks may be added. We find plenty of exercise leaves even the most anxious dog more relaxed.

Our focus is to board only a few dogs @ a time thereby optimizing attention to your pets needs.

We have had dogs in our lives all our lives.

Convenient, Caring & Affordable is what we expect from a dog sitting service. It is what you can expect to receive from us .

YES, WE DO OFFER DAY CARE. We take additional dogs for day care beyond what our booking calendar does reflect. Our calendar only shows bookings for over-night stays.

IF YOU REQUIRE DAY CARE, go to drop down menu below our profile pic (above right side of page), drop down menu to 'Day Care at Sitters Home' and make reservations there. Thank you! ;-)

UPDATE: After some experience with DogVacay I have come to understand part of the fun of hosting your pet(s) is taking opportune photos and making captions for them. LOL!
I enjoy updating with photos. (Tim :)

Woof! Woof! (Thank you ;)

Tim, Andrea and their adorable dogs Leo, Lilly, and Peanut live in cozy apartment in a nice location close to the Bone Yard Dog Park, where they take their dogs to play.

They both work from home and will provide quality attention for your dog. They will even share the bed with those who love to snuggle :o)

Your pup is sure to have a great vacation with Tim and Andrea!

Tim and Andrea are awesome! I booked last minute so I didn't have a meet and greet. They made me feel comfortable from the start. Loved the pics and texts they sent. Usually my two girls (Sadie and Lucy) eat very little when they are away. Andrea handfed Sadie until she ate on her own. They truly enjoy all their visitors. Definitely using them on my next trip.

These folks are THE BEST. We have been using Dogvacay for a long time, and we even hosted pups before we got relocated. I can safely say these guys are absolutely wonderful. Having Andrea and Tim watching our 'kids' is such a comfort to us when we're away. We've probably used them more than 10 times this year, and they have been BY FAR the most responsive, convenient, lovely sitters. They get booked up fast, so if you're reading this bc they're avail for your dates, lucky you!

Returning doggy parent; the dog might like them more than me... :)
So great to have the dog walked when we knew work would make the day too long. Tucker loved stretching his legs!
Andrea and Tim are the perfect hosts. I felt completely at ease leaving my sweet pup with them. They kept me updated daily with photos and videos which I really appreciated. I highly recommend them and will be using them again
I appreciate Tim's flexibility when I am scheduling dog boarding! (He's even done early morning curb side meets for drop off.)
Colter loved his visit with Andrea & Tim. They are super friendly people and are experienced working with dogs. I received text/email updates, photos, and even a super cute video while I was out-of-town. I highly recommend Andrea & Tim!
Andrea & Tim are awesome!
I was so happy to leave my dog with Tim and Andrea! They had great communication prior to my dog's stay and during. We thought that my dog would have surgery before our trip and they were willing to help take care of him like he was their own, which was amazing. We ended up scheduling surgery when we returned, so Tim and Andrea just made sure he got all his medication while we were away. We got lots of photos and videos while we were gone, which was wonderful! We were very happy to have our dog stay with them and would do it again for our next trip!

Andrea and Tim were awesome doggie babysitters. It's always tough to leave your puppy behind, but I felt comfortable with Andrea and Tim and knew that my pup, Mosley, was in great hands.

They were prompt with sending me updates - videos and pictures, and sent them at least 2x a day. Mosley had a number of doggies to play with (which he LOVES) so we felt reassured by the fact that he had lots of friends to play with! Andrea and Tim were super timely with their responses (DogVacay messages & text), which was much appreciated!

Would definitely have Mosley stay with Andrea & Tim again!

Our dogs were treated with a lot of love. We have a puppy and an adult chihuahua. As typical parents, we left Tim and Andrea with the "laundry list" of how to take care of our pets. The daily pictures were great and told the whole story. When I brought the dogs home, I accidentally took the wrong leash. When Tim and Andrea dropped off the correct leash, the dogs were beyond crazy happy to see them. That told the whole story.
I am already planning to use them again !!
Thank you TIM! Thank you Andrea!

We are thrilled! Our dog, Roo, did great with Tim and Andrea despite her anxious nature. She has separation anxiety and is not great with other dogs, but they gave her plenty of attention and helped her adjust to the new situation. She was relaxed and cheerful when we picked her up after her first day and clearly had a good time. We really appreciated the videos and updates Tim sent us during he day, so we could stop worrying! We are very grateful to Tim and Andrea for taking such good care of Roo.

Andrea and Tim were great! Super accommodating and flexible. The sent regular photo updates and made pick up and drop off really easy. Our little guy, Leo, was in good hands!
Tim and Andrea responded to our reservation request promptly, and were very accommodating (and delightful) with every interaction we had. We got pictures of our boy during our time away from him - he came back a happy boy! We'll be back!
We love Andrea & Tim! They make Roo feel like one of the pack :) we are so happy we found them! Roo gets plenty of walks and Tim is always very responsive and sends cute videos and photos which we love!
Very friendly hosts who took our little guy on many walks. Great experience !
I believe Andrea and Tim are true dog lovers. I really appreciated the daily photos and comments. And I truly appreciate that they take the dogs for frequent walks - I'm sure Evie appreciated that, too. Sweet people - I'll book with them again.
I feel so fortunate to have found Tim and Andrea! They are definite dog lovers and took very good care of my dog.

I will definitely use their services again in the future!

Thanks so much for giving me and my family a worry free vacation while away from our dog!

We have our golden stay with Tim for 5 nights. Tim has been really helpful and patience. This is Rosie first time away from us so she is not used to stay overnight outside our home. She got some accident and Tim has been really helpful with trying to walk her out more often. They also sent photo and info update every night so my family can see her. I hope they are not scare of watching Rosie again if we ever need another stay over. Thanks a lot Tim!!!

Tim and Andrea are the best. Sammy wags his tail when dropping him off at their place.
Tim and Andrea are great with dogs and they treated mine like one of their own. He was super happy and I'm sure he can't wait to go again.
Tim and Andrea are awesome hosts. My dog had the same two daycare providers from 5-weeks-old to a year old, so I was a bit anxious about how he would do with new folks. My concerns were quickly allayed, however, when Milo and I first met Tim and Andrea. They welcomed him into their home and their pack, and Milo does great! I always watch how he reacts around people, and he gets very excited when he sees Tim coming down the sidewalk on drop-off mornings. I trust Andrea and Tim completely with Milo and I'm a super-picky mom.

Tim and Andrea are dear to my heart! They watched Anna with about 1 hour notice due to another host falling through right before I was leaving now town. They didn't hesitate to take another dog in to their care despite being fully booked. I will never trust another host and they are my go-to people. Can't thank you two enough!!

Andrea & Tim were great and very understanding. I have a high energy dog, and they were able to care for her regardless. Super friendly and flexible with meet & greet along with drop off & pick ups. I'll def be saving them for future needs :)
They were awesome! My pups had such a wonderful time. I will definitely be a repeat customer! Yay!
Right from the meet and greet I felt totally comfortable leaving Ivy with Andea and Tim ( and I'm an extremely cautious dog mom). I loved the pictures Tim sent me throughout the day and when she got home, Ivy appeared to be calm and sleepy! Great job you guys. I wouldn't hesitate using them again.

Tim and Andrea took great care of my boy. He is older and can be a bit nervous in new situations along with being a little grumpy about other dogs wanting to play with him, but they handled his insecurities without any problem. They sent me updates and pictures to let me know he was doing great. He came back happy and relaxed so I know he enjoyed his stay with them.

My dog Sadie had her first stay with Tim and Andrea and everything went great! I could tell from the moment I met Tim that he was a "dog person" and Sadie would be in good hands. He sent pictures throughout the day, which I really appreciated. I would not hesitate to book with Tim and Andrea again!

Andrea and Tim gave my pup the best of care. They are quick to communicate, very accommodating, and flexible since I'm always running late! Glad to have found them.
So happy to have Samy in their home for daycare while I'm at work. Andrea and Tim are the best.
Tim and Andrea are wonderful!! They sent daily pictures to let me know Anna was doing well and settled in just fine. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a dog sitter and will definitely use them again when I go out of town. Thanks so much for taking great care of my fur baby!

I just can't praise Andrea and Tim enough. They are so patient with my crazy boys and are so helpful and accommodating! Their patience and soft touch have helped my scared boys be better dogs!
Andrea and Tim are great! My pup Zora visited them for the day to give everyone a chance to get to know each other before leaving her with them for a longer period. Communication was great, and she came home happy and tired. Looking forward to more visits!

Andrea and Tim were great! Because our dog had never been with a sitter before, I wasn't sure what to expect. But, Andrea and Tim knew exactly how to make her comfortable. From the moment I left our "baby" in their care, I never worried once! As I drove away from the drop off, she was walking with them as if she had been there her whole life.

During the weekend we were away, I received lots of adorable pictures of her--from her local hotel to ours across the country. And, there were no issues! Not one nervous regurgitation or indoor potty accident (so they said!) It could not have gone better. I highly recommend Andrea and Tim!

Andrea and Tim were awesome hosts! They sent us pictures throughout the day, and were always accommodating and flexible. Would highly recommend!
Andrea and Tim are wonderful and our pooch absolutely loves them and their dogs! I always go to them first and I feel completely comfortable having my dog with them all day--unlike others I've tried. These two make all other commercial dog daycares look bad. 6 stars -- Super Freaking Pawsome!

Andrea and Tim were great! My elderly dog Reilly has a very specific regimen for his medication due to his lung condition and they were diligent on making sure he received his meds every day. They also put up with my "early riser" dog who demands a walk at 6:30am every morning. Over the weekend, they were very communicative and send me lots of cute photos. I would definitely use them again.

DREAM HOSTS!!!! So easy to schedule with - and great photos! My 10-year old senior dog with anxiety had a great time there - and seems depressed now that he's home lol.
Either my dog decided he no longer liked his owners or it is just a testament to the job well-done by Andrea and Tim that he had NO interest in leaving.
Super easy going and very nice. Our dog MOMO had a very stress free time and me and my wife had a great night out not having to worry if he was ok or not. 10/10 would let sit again!
So great. Andrea and Tim were great with communication, updates, photos, and were accommodating with my schedule (including an early pick-up). Malcolm came home tired and happy! He settled in with them quickly and he'll be happy to get back there for our next time out of town.

Tim is GREAT! My wife and I highly recommend him for daycare or overnight stays. We have a 13 year old beagle named Maxwell who has separation anxiety. Maxwell is very picky as to who he wants to stay with but he wiggles his little butt as soon as he sees Tim. We both appreciate how kind and gentle Tim is with Maxwell, because beagles as a breed need a lot of patience and understanding. Tim totally gets that. We really like how Tim figured out that the problem with Maxwell is that he needed a little more distraction to get his mind off of missing us so he always takes Maxwell on an extra walk even though his two doggies are content at home. It shows the extra mile Tim will go to for your little pup. As soon as you meet Tim you'll feel that your dog is in safe trustworthy hands. Maxwell always comes back happy, content, and totally wiped out from all the walks and playing!

Andrea and Tim were absolutely superb hosts! They sent us daily picture updates of our 8 month old pup and we could see that he was really relaxed and happy. They were also really flexible with drop off and pick up times which was just so so helpful. Definitely come recommended. Thanks so much!

Andrea and Tim are fantastic hosts! Our dog Merlin always has a great time with them. Highly recommended!
Andrea and Tim took such great care of my fur-child. They were quick to respond, were flexible with their schedule, and sent me so many lovely pictures during her stay so that I was updated. I'd highly recommend these two to ANYONE!
I cannot tell you how awesome Andrea & Tim are--100% recommend! My pooch is always excited to visit them and their three small and very friendly dogs. They provide a great environment for the dogs with play, exercise, care and attention and at a very good price. I will always go to Andrea & Tim whenever I need a dog sitter. No doubt, best on the Westside!

Andrea and Tim were fantastic! I can't say enough nice things about them. They took care of our pup for the entire day and were super accommodating when we informed we were running behind. My wife and I highly recommend leaving your dog w/ them. They'll treat them as if they are one of their own dogs.

Tim has been walking my two guys a couple times a week and he's just fantastic. We knew Willis would be a bit of a handful, but Tim has taken it and been so patient and understanding. We are so happy we found him!
Andrea & Tim were amazing! Soba bunked with them over President's day weekend and clearly had a blast. They made sure to keep us updated with photos, which was so appreciated. When we picked her up, it was very clear that she had a weekend full of play, love and attention. Will definitely be using their services again!

Andrea and Tim are so awesome! They are both incredibly friendly and kind and welcomed my little man into their pack with open arms. They were attentive to hearing about Koda's needs, info about meals and any concerns I had. They kept me updated with photos of Koda hanging with them and their pups and made me feel at ease leaving my dog behind for the weekend. They were also very responsive and flexible with pick up and drop off times. Koda came home a happy pup having had a "vacay" or his own. On top of all that, their prices are super reasonable, especially considering the amount of care and effort they put in to making sure both Koda and I were comfortable being apart! I highly suggest Tim & Andrea for your pet sitting needs. Thank you guys so much for being awesome and helpful!
