Sandy was great with our dog, Sunshine. It was so nice having her in a home setting, where she got one on one attention. Sunshine was contented when we picked her up. We highly recommend Sandy. We will definitely consider her again for our next vacation.

Want a tired, happy dog?

I have always been a huge animal lover, especially dogs! I grew up with one & have only gone a couple months without one while grieving a loss. Some people wait a long time to get another pet but that’s not me. I don’t feel like myself without my pets. I guess it’s just meant to be!

My favorites are the herding breeds. They’re so smart & lots of fun to ...

What Sandy would like to know about your dog

My #1 rule for boarding your dog in my home is that they are crate trained. I need to feel comfortable leaving your dog crated if I need to leave the house. You never know how a dog will behave when alone in a home they aren’t used to. Plus it makes your dog feel safe also. I prefer dogs under 60 pounds but, if you have a larger breed & they walk nice on the leash & have good manners I'll take them. A super high energy dog would probably not be best for me. I need to know how your dog(s) are with people & other dogs. Housebroken? What is their feeding & typical bathroom schedule? Are they afraid of anything? If yes, what can I do to help them? Did they ever bite or fight? What were the circumstances? What can I do to make sure I don't put them in a position where that could be a problem? I wouldn't want them to feel insecure.

When Sandy watches your pet

My favorite things to do with my dog are going to a lake for a swim or hike & visiting dog parks together. We also enjoy attending local dog friendly events and street fairs. And of course....car rides! I bring my dog with me as often as possible. I think training is the best way to build a solid & loving relationship with your dog. Whether you are teaching obedience or fun things like agility. I've learned quite a bit about obedience training over the years as well as agility & shy dog classes. Boundaries are important to make them feel safe & secure. Who knows, maybe I'll teach your dog something new while you're gone!
