About Sandhya

Hello, I’m Sandhya

I’m a HUGE dog lover living right by the Sea next to Portchester Castle. People have always commented on my loving connection to Dogs - they are my favourite thing in the World! I have in total 15 years experience dog sitting/walking for people in my home town, for friends and family members and i have 4 years experience doing this professionally, I have very recently moved from East London back to Portchester. During this time I‘ve also completed training courses, doggy first aid and have taught myself Petrissage doggy massage to help ease pets with anxiety problems. I am available fulltime & over the weekends also.I’m very active & love exploring all the parks giving the furry ones new sights & smells to discover.

My care includes light grooming, playing games, long walks and LOTS of fuss and cuddles! I provide a holiday away from home & take pride in how much the pups enjoy there time here. I am very reliable, super friendly and flexible. I know how nerve racking it can feel to leave your beloved little one for the day, therefore I would be delighted to meet you beforehand and send you regular updates and photos to see what fun he or she is having.

I live in a bungalow with my Mum & occasionally a 10 year old Jack Russell called Harry who also lives with my sister.
Harry is yappy on walks, good with dogs in the home and sleeps most of the day!

I plan to alternate my walks between the sea walk and castle on our doorstep, the wiccar fields nearby and can also go to Butser Hill, QE Country Park etc if your dog has a lot of energy or one of the beaches if they love to swim. I endeavour to take dogs on different walks as often as possible to explore the surroundings and give them new exciting smells.

My Rates:
Doggy stay per night - £25
Doggy Daycare - £20
Walks - £12

I can cater to any special needs or requests you may have with your dog

    We have left our dog with the sitter for more than two weeks, and I have to say from the moment we saw her we were at peace, I knew that our dog would be happy with her. She took care of dog Nina as if it was hers. She constantly posted pictures on Instagram and our dog was super happy on every picture. She is very responsive and answers almost immediately to give updates. We would and will defiantly leave Nina with her again. Thank you! Nina loves you!

    She was great with my dog Amy. Amy stayed for a week and I didn't have to worry about a thing. She posted photos on instagram so I could keep up with Amy's fun dog holiday when I wanted to. She communicated well all the time and was patient in reassuring me that my dog was fine and keeping out of mischief! Amy loved her! I'd happily recommend her to any dog owners and will use her again without reservation. Thanks!
