Due to a last-minute cancellation I was looking for a suitable dog walker for my two dogs, one of which has fairly crippling anxiety and does not do well with strangers. Sandy stepped in and saved the day, not only agreeing to help on short notice but also doing the impossible - she made my fearful pooch trust her enough to take treats from her hand after just meeting that day! This may not seem ...
Sandy was great! My dog loved staying with her and she was responsive and caring. She is also a great photographer. Thanks!
Sandy was wonderful with our dog Dexter! We just moved to the area and our dog can be very anxious and scared of humans. So we were very worried at first when we had to leave him for a week to travel for work. But it only took a day for us to be at ease because Sandy gave him so much love and care.

A dog walker and dog sitter since 2003, I have 20 years experience, overall, with dogs. I spent 2 years as the Shelter Manager at a Humane Society and also graduated from the Canine Behavior Academy in Novato, CA to become a dog trainer and behaviorist.

What Sandy would like to know about your dog
All breeds and sizes welcome. Would like to know your dog's experience being around another dog. Does your dog share toys or prefer to have their own toys? Does your dog have any fears or anything that makes them nervous? (postal workers, loud trucks, fireworks) In the case where I have to slip out for a short while, how does your dog handle being alone in the house? Any separation anxiety? Is your dog crated at night or when alone in the house? We are deep into flea and tick season, is your dog on preventative? What is your dog's schedule, how often does it go out during the day, how much exercise each day and what is the feeding schedule?
