What our customers have to say...

Sandy has been my trusted pet sitter since about 2008. I am so comforted knowing that she is faithfully taking care of my cat! Sandy has been very easy to contact and returns calls promptly. When I have had emergencies and had to leave town unexpectedly, she has always been there. She was also able to extend her services on a day by day basis. It is great to return home to a happy cat and the sweet little notes that Sandy leaves. The best part is seeing how much she truly loves animals!
Sandy has been a beloved member of our extended family for numerous years. She has cared for us in "sickness and health". I don't know what I would do without her live and support. Sandy is always available for last minute schedule changes. I trust her with my most precious possessions! I would truly be lost without her.
Sandy has been a friend to my dogs and cats and myself for more years than I can remember. Her tenderness with my old diabetic lab, giving insulin when needed, her tolerance with my 2 bratty cats who both think their middle name is Houdini, giving her friendship and (VERY BRAVELY) opening her home to my very mouthy Labrador puppy have not only won Sandy a place in my heart, but also with my four footed companions. Sandy has also gone above and beyond when she filled my generator with gasoline during the hurricane (NOT named after her!), fetched mail out of the bushes when it's blown away, cared for my plants, kept en eye on my home when I've been out of town, searched for my escape artist cat, and even cleaned up those inevitable messes that get made. I originally found Sandy via her website. She is a consummate professional, taking time to learn about you and your pets, wanting emergency contact information. She is very sensitive to animal behavior, and will let you know if she thinks something is not quite right. You could not have someone more trustworthy or caring to look after your dogs or cats - whether it's just for daily play time, or if you are on an extended trip. I cannot recommend her highly enough
Sandy is the only pet sitter I will use. She is not only reliable, she is extremely knowledgeable about feline healthcare. Before Ella came to live with me I had another cat named Bennie that needed subcutaneous fluids every other day. I was very squeamish but Sandy patiently took me under her wing and helped me to help Bennie. With Sandy on the job I know that whatever need arises, Ella will be in good hands.
Sandy has looked after our two cats when we away since we moved to Stamford in 2011. We highly recommend Sandy, she is reliable, available at short notice and most importantly takes good care of our precious kitties. After the hurricane of 2012 she made sure that she got to the house to check that the cats were safe and reassure two very worried pet parents. Sincerely P & A Dodds.
Hello there..I normally travel so much for work, and Sandy have been taking care of my puppies for quite a while, I feel secure when she has them, I know she cares about them and treat them with love. They Love going to her house, and they get along with her puppy Sawyer :) I am traveling again in one week and she is taking care of them, I feel confident she will do great ...and I love them like my babies.
Sandy has watched our cats for us for several years now, whenever we go away for more than a couple of days. She's extremely reliable and leaves us great notes about the kitties when we come back. She is prompt to respond to emails or phone calls and rates are very reasonable. We had one amazing experience where we were overseas during winter and Sandy noted that the house was very cold. She tracked us down by phone and turns out our heat was broken. Sandy went down and reset our furnace, and went back to our house later to be sure that the heat was still working. Saved us some cold (or worse) kitties, and probably some burst pipes as well!
Due to several bad experiences, the thought of going away became paralyzing whenever I had to make arrangements for pet care .... and then I was referred to Sandy. Sandy has been taking excellent care of our cat and home for over five years. She is extremely caring, responsible and dependable which makes going away easy and returning peaceful knowing that our cat and home have been well cared for. I highly recommend PawPrints and HoofBeats!
We've known Sandy only briefly since moving to Fairfield Co. just 6 months ago, but she has already proved herself reponsive, dependable, and trustworthy. We chose well! She gets along well with our not well-socialized cat, Leo, and always leaves us a note to let us know how things went. She keeps us informed quickly of any developing issues that need quick handling. We came to trust and count on Sandy very quickly.

We have known Sandy for over a decade and are impressed with her caring, professinal nature. Having four cats with various behavioral and medical issues we were very comfortable leaving them in her very capable hands. She has shown herself to be reliable, innovative and adept at handleing situations as they arise. We can go away for any length of time and feel secure that our "kids" are safe and happy.

Paw Prints & Hoofbeats has been taking care of our cats whenever we are out of town for over 6 years, and we could not be happier! Setting up service dates with the owner Sandy Hogan is always easy, efficient and fast via email. We have been fortunate to be able to rely on such a professional and trustworthy pet sitting service and we are always happy to find a note upon our return on how the cats were doing while we were gone. Look no further, this is the pet sitting service to go with!
Sandy Hogan, the owner of Paw Prints & Hoof Beats, has been our petsitter since 2007 and we are extremely happy with her work. She has come to take care of our dog, Casey many times for 1 day or even for 2 weeks over the course of this time. I can not say we have ever had a more loyal, trustworthy and diligent person care for our pets. We are able to leave for a day trip or a vacation with full peace of mind that our pets are safe, happy and comfortable! Casey gets so excited when he sees her his whole body shakes and I absolute peace of mind when we entrust her with him.
Nell & Skip
Sandy, founder of Paw Prints & Hoof Beats, is the most reliable pet sitter and person I know. I travel quite extensively and at times don't know about my trips until a few days before my departure. Sandy has always been accessible accommodating of unexpected short notice calls or family emergencies. She has made it her business to ensure she gets to Teddy the cat--regardless of weather, storms, traffic, construction or any other uncontrollable obstacle. I travel stress free and know that my house, mail, plants and above all, my cat Teddy is cared for, loved and entertained. There is nothing more comforting to know that Sandy treats your pets like her own and ensures they are well attended. I highly recommend Sandy's services. We've been customers of PawPrints & Hoof Beats for almost 10 years--and I would not consider another service. When you hire PawPrints & Hoof Beats, you will have the security, ease and stress free time away we so need--knowing your beloved pet(s) are in the best hands. Sincerely, Nancy J. Di Dia
With 7 ponies, 3 cats, a corgi, a bunny and a hedgehog our house is complete. Our animals are a part of our family and we will only leave them in well-trusted hands. We have known Sandy since I was 4 years old and I can not say we have ever had a more loyal, trustworthy and diligent person care for our pets. We are able to leave for a day trip or a vacation with full piece of mind that our pets are safe, happy and comfortable!
