Sofie Dandy


I have over 15 years of experience in the pet care industry, and I’m only in early 30’s! I started dog sitting by learning from my grandfather, who has loved dogs his whole life. He always watched neighbors’ dogs as a side gig and showed me the ropes when I was very young.

When I was about 12, I got my first dog and my mom enrolled us in 4H, where I started showing my dog and did obedience training. I also volunteered in our community bringing my dog to nursing homes and hospice centers to comfort my elders. As years went on, I attended beauty school, worked at a law firm, and even became a professional CDL A driver! How dumb of me! But hey, ya live and ya learn.

I ALWAYS ended up back to dogs. Even during all my other jobs, I was heavily involved in dog rescue and pet sitting on the side. I worked at vet clinics as assistants and front desk coordinators on occasion too! I should’ve just stuck with it since being a kid!

Well, I’m here now running my dog boarding business full time and never been happier! I can’t see myself ever switching careers or just obtaining a job, NEVER AGAIN! I live for this, and I want nothing more in life than to help keep dogs safe, happy, & healthy!

I’m so excited to be continuing my journey fulfilling my life’s purpose and continuing my education every step of the way. Now, also being a dog trainer and specializing in behavior modification, I am confident I can handle any breed with any issues. I can administer any medication that your dog needs as well. Relax, I got you!

All dogs are crated at night unless previously discussed for safety reasons and maintaining structure.

Yes. I may be away four to six hours at once and dogs are crated while I’m away or left with my assistant.

Primarily yes, but I do have an assistant on occasion who is properly instructed on each dogs specific care.

That is no issue at all, as I have worked at vet clinics and rescues and can properly administer any medication necessary.

Absolutely! We are experienced in caring for dogs with special needs and medical requirements. Please provide detailed instructions and any necessary medications, and we will ensure your dog receives the proper care.

No problem! I can always keep them separated from other dogs. I’m also a dog trainer so please contact me if you need training and I’ll send info to get started with us. As a certified dog trainer, I use positive reinforcement techniques to address and manage behavioral issues. If your dog has specific behavioral concerns, please inform us in advance so we can create a customized plan to address their needs.

Only ecollar trained dogs wear their collars during daytime hours. Dogs who excessively bark will temporarily have to wear a bark collar. If your dog doesn’t listen to me or behave properly with the other dogs they will be let out separately. We do offer training to overcome these issues if desired.

At Dandy Dog Nanny, we offer a variety of services including dog boarding, pet sitting, and personalized dog training sessions. Each service is tailored to meet the unique needs of your dog, ensuring they receive the best care and attention while you’re away.
