About Andrea

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
If you are looking for a safe and happy home for your dog and a guilt-free time away, you are in the right place! I’m a retired executive who unapologetically loves dogs, and I’m happy to extend a warm welcome to your precious life companion.

My spacious house comes with a large fenced yard, doggie door for potty breaks anytime day and night, lots of toys, play and belly rubs. Dogs are allowed to run freely in the house as well as hang out on couches so that they can cuddle with me. I’ll keep a close eye on your dog, feed him/her according to your instructions, administer meds if required and take him/her for walks around the lake half a mile from the house.

For over a decade I used to breed Dobermans, and now I have a wonderful 2-year old dog Raven who was a rescue at 7 weeks. Raven is a Lab/Border Collie mix who gets along super well with all dogs and people and who’s currently in training to become a therapy service dog. She loves to play with our guest dogs and keeps them exercised. There are no other animals or children in the house.

You’re welcome to leave your dog with me for an overnight stay, extended stay or daycare. No need to worry about strict drop off/pick up times – I’m flexible.

Feel free to reach out to say Hi and ask any questions you might have.

To summarize:
• Retired executive, dog lover all my life
• Loving environment, lots of toys, play and belly rubs
• Lots of care and attention, never more than 4 guest dogs in the house
• No children or animals in the house, except for my super friendly 2-year old dog Raven

• Doggie door for potty breaks anytime day and night
• Large fenced yard
• 6-foot wood plank fence all around
• Plush green grass in the yard
• Home sits on ¼ acre lot

• Dogs are allowed on couches so they can cuddle with me
• Well-trained dogs sleep in my bedroom in their own beds if provided by owner, or in our super comfy bagel beds

• Feeding as per owner’s instructions, including meds and supplements

• Must be house broken
• No barkers (occasional yelps are part of play of course)
• No drooling dogs, please! After all, they are guests in my home, not a dog park or doggie daycare facility

Andrea is simply amazing with dogs! She treats all guest dogs as if they were her own, and she is very reliable and trustworthy. I highly recommend her!! Also, Andrea's dog Raven is super friendly, and makes a great play buddy!

In my book Andrea is a dog whisperer! My two dogs, big boy Elroy and princess Tamara, both Dobies, absolutely love her. They gravitated to her instantly and would not want to come home after a week’s boarding! Andrea has a lovely home and a big back yard with plenty of room for the dogs to horse around outside and inside. Knowing how much love and excellent care Elroy and Tamara receive at Andrea’s, I no longer feel guilty leaving them behind when I have to go out of town on business trips. I’m so glad I found Andrea’s ‘guilt-free’ dog resort!

Firstly, you should know that I love my dog, Aries, as much as I would love a son. I hate leaving him for even the day, not to mention over night or for any extended period of time. But life happens and I have to inevitable leave him with someone in the hopes that he isn't scared or neglected. Andrea gives Aries the same amount of love and attention he gets from me at home, if not more! She is a wonderful person who absolutely loves dogs. She also happens to be a great resource for training and nutrition tips! I would highly recommend anyone trust her with their furry babies. I can guarantee that they will return to you happy and well taken care of!

Andrea is an extremely responsible and loving dog sitter who will make your furry friend feel at home. Andrea has been taking care of my two dogs for the past three years for months at a time when I went on extended trips overseas. Last year I was away over 4 months and never felt guilty about leaving my two pups (7 and 5 years old) because I knew that they were well taken care of, pampered to the nth degree and mostly, because they LOVE Andrea. Take my word for it – you won’t find a better person to take care of your precious furry friend!

I have two small shelties that get very excited whenever I have to leave them at a day care facility. They are a bit shy and don’t do very well with lots of dogs running around. So I tried Andrea’s home care and am very glad I did. Pete and Shelby settled right in at her place, found the most comfortable spot on her couch and fell right asleep! Now, whenever I take them back, they jump on the sofa and wait for their belly rubs... It gives me great peace to know that they are happy whenever I cannot be with them.

The experience was outstanding. My dogs love to be with Andrea and Raven and we honestly thought they might not want to come home! Andrea's home is immaculate and welcoming. The yard is large and perfectly maintained. Most importantly, Andrea is warm, welcoming and truly loves dogs. I could not give her higher marks.
Andrea is so wonderful with our Jorja. When we arrive at her house, Jorja is so excited to be there. It makes going out of town so much easier, knowing that Andrea is watching Jorja. Jorja always has such a wonderful time with Andrea and Raven.
When I drop my dog off with a dog sitter, I am leaving a part of my family behind. Simply put, Andrea clearly communicated with me throughout the process from - from the initial meet and greet to the final pick up. She took the trouble to get to know Andorra (my labradoodle) and to help her get comfortable in her temporary home. When Andorra when on a hunger strike, Andrea even tempted her back to her food with special treats. Throughout my time away from Andorra sent pictures and videos of her playing, going on walks, running and dog park and resting at home. Needless to say, Andrea took great care of my dog. I cannot recommend her enough.
