About Your BUDDY and Me — Leader of the Pack

Sondra and RioAt the age of five, Brazilian born Sondra Lagnado relocated with her family to the U.S. Her passion for animals began when, as a child she was fond of bringing home strays. She was also fond of crafting her own cameras from Lego™ blocks and taking photos of her family, friends and assorted animals.

Leaving her Lego™ camera behind, Sondra followed her passion and pursued a satisfying career in photography and graphic design. In 2002, her beloved Dalmatian, Texas, passed away and Sondra deeply missed the companionship of her four-legged friend. In January of 2006, Sondra rescued her current companion and “Your BUDDY & Me” mascot Rio DJ from Rancho Coastal Humane Society.

Rio is an active female black Lippet (lab-whippet) who craves exercise and mental stimulation. Sondra hired a dog walker to look after Rio when she was at work, but soon discovered that her true vocation was to care for dogs like Rio, whose owners are at work during the day and want their animals to have ample exercise during their absence.

As a trial run, Sondra took a 10-day vacation from corporate America and volunteered to take friends and neighbor's dogs on group outings. She has never looked back and since then has trained to become a professional dog walker. She opened Your BUDDY and Me in September of 2006. On their days off, you can often find Sondra and Rio at the hottest San Diego doggy spots.

Your BUDDY and Me is a member of Pet Sitters Associates, LLC©. Sondra has attended San Diego Humane Society Training classes, Challenge You Horse Workshop and a Red Cross First Aid certification for both humans and their pets. Your BUDDY and Me is fully licensed, and insured. Numerous excellent references are available on request.
