A Little About Myself

How Sandy's 4PAWS Care came to be:

With over 20 years of experience working with dogs, I have grown my business strictly by word of mouth.  I began walking dogs back in 2009, just to help out a neighbor.  Soon word spread and I found myself working part time as a dog walker.  With time I began fostering puppies and training them to be adopted out and soon after, I was being asked to help with dogs with behavioral issues.  I realized I had a gift to help these loving souls and decided to give up my 23 year career in the travel industry and fulfill my love for animals full time.

In the last 20+ years I have had the honor of working with over 600 dogs.  All ranging from 08 pound pups to 170 pound mastiffs.  All different energies, behaviors and temperaments.

With a variety of services to choose from, we’re sure you’ll be happy working with us. Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us. At Sandy's 4PAWS Care, we are focused on providing professional, experienced, trustworthy,  and friendly services with the highest levels of customer satisfaction – we will do everything we can to meet and exceed your expectations.

Our goal is always for a PAWSITIVE experience and a DOGGONE good time!!

Thank you for taking the time to visit us.

I do not trust my Greyhounds with too many people. Sandy started bringing our girl to her house to play with her dogs and she quickly became the second "mom" to our first girl. She is loving, patient and very good with all temperaments and breeds. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Sandy has been walking dogs in the Point of Pines for many years. She is very knowledgable about canine behavior. Her vast knowledge of canine behavior likely saved our dogs life this week. While out walking our irish setter she encountered 3 pitbulls who were out unleashed on the street. One of the dogs came racing at our setter and grabbed her by the throat and locked his jaw onto her neck. Sandy jumped on top of the attacking dog, not allowing him to move. She did this to prevent the dog from being able to shake his head and body, which is what dogs generally do when they attack to rip the other dogs neck. Sandy's knowledge of this behavior saved our dogs life. If Sandy had tried to pull our dog away by her leash, as most people automatically do, our dog probably would have had her throat torn apart. Dog walking and boarding can be a pretty simple task if all goes well, but when bad things happen it is nice to know that your dog is in the hands of a true professional. I would highly recommend Sandy if you ever need boarding, walking or training for your dog. Thank you Sandy for taking such good care of our Chloe and saving her life.

Best dog-gone walker & sitter on the northshore. My dog Addie refuses to be walked by any other!

Words cannot express how amazing Sandy, Samantha and Anna have been with our dog, Sookie. They have all been extremely professional since day 1 and show our dog boundless affection. Sookie can be shy around new people, so it really meant something to me when I was at home once when Anna arrived to pick Sookie up and Sookie didn't even look back at me before leaving happily with Anna on her walk. Sandy is very communicative with us and gives us daily updates on what happened on Sookie's walks. She is also able to fit us in last minute if something arises unexpectedly. They have also stayed in our home overnight with Sookie when we are out of town and out home is always just as we left it. Overall they are professional, trustworthy and loving people to have in your pet's life! I cannot recommend them more highly. Of all the things I will miss when moving, Sandy and her team are #1.



Thank you, you made a great difference. Sunday I was able to walk Porter on his 2 mile walk , he very rarely pulled most of the time the leash was loose this was the 1st time I was able to easily walk him.  Thanks!

We have been using Sandy and her crew for the past three years and have had an amazing experience with three dogs. Between walks, home visits, and training, Sandy has gone above and beyond our expectations. When one of our dogs was sick, she even had me drive the dog to her home in the evening to take his temperature and do a quick check on him. I couldn't possibly recommend Sandy and Sandy's 4PAWS Care any more highly!!



Sandy is fantastic! Trustworthy, reliable and so wonderful with dogs! Our 7 year old lab loved his daily walks. We recently relocated to Colorado and were so Sad to say goodbye!"

Sandy is a loving caring person in general. Dogs respond and open up to her so fast. If you want your dog to have fun, learn and be safe Sandy is the person I highly recommend!!!- 



There is no better caregiver for your pet on the North Shore than Sandy's 4Paws Care. Whether Sandy is walking, pet sitting or training your dog, she has a style and command presence that all the dogs respond positively to. I can't recommend her or her services enough. My dog loves spending time with Sandy, adores her and has benefited greatly from her training.
