Dog Excursions, Off-Leash Dog Walker in San Diego, CA


Sondra and DustySondra has the biggest heart and truly cares for her clients and her clients' pets. She graciously reached out to our family last October during the wildfires. We had been evacuated to Qualcomm Stadium and stranded outside with our Golden Retriever as they wouldn't allow pets inside the stadium itself. She more than willingly approached us and volunteered to take care of our puppy (a 6 mos old puppy who was almost 50 lbs., barely potty-trained and definitely puppy hyper!) for as long as we needed. Little did she know that we would be there for 3 days! She absolutely was the biggest blessing in our lives for those 3 days we spent in tents in Qualcomm Stadium. She assured our kids that Dusty would be okay by allowing them to talk to our dog daily and Dusty had the best time with her in dog parks, beaches and socializing with other dogs. She took a huge stress of our backs during a time of distress. She is by far, one of the best caretakers and greatest hearts I know!!!

Sondra Lagnado has been walking my precious pup for over a year now and I highly recommend her services. I know that when she takes my dog on an outing she is going to have a blast and come home pooped. I never worry about my dog's safety, Sondra has proven herself to be a very talented dog wrangler. Most importantly I can truly say that she cares for each and every dog that she looks after. She treats them as if they were her own - and if you know her or her dog that's saying a lot! Her services are invaluable to the working dog owner!

I lost my friends Chihuahua named JR in North Park, Morley Field Area today thanks to Sondra Lognado the "Dog Wrangler" from Your Buddy & Me who found and chased JR AKA Speedy Gonzalez. You Rock Sondra! Thanks for not giving up on the chase.

Lupo cakeMy dog Lupo is ecstatically tail waggingly happy to recommend Your Buddy and Me doggie excursions. Lupo loves going to the beach (as long as he doesn't have to go in the water). He also loves sniffing around Grape Street dog park and Morley Field, all in the company of his best friends from Your Buddy and Me. I work full time and don't always have time to take Lupo out...Sondra is always accomodating, even at short notice. And, when I have to travel on business, Sondra comes to stay with Lupo and sometimes he even lets her sleep in HIS bed. Highly recommended.

Your Buddy and Me is a great business. Sondra went out of her way to help me take care of my dog. She took her to the dog park, started training her, and even let her stay over when we were saying in a non-dog friendly apartment. I highly recommend her business for anyone that is looking for a responsible and friendly dog walker.

Your Buddy and Me has been such a wonderful experience when I have to go out of town. Sondra understands my kitties are my family. She loves them and plays with them while I am away and gives me daily updates by picture, text message or phone call. She is ready to take them to the vet for me at a moments notice if needed. She is the perfect person to love my animals when I am not with them. She is sweet, kind and a true professional.

My dog, Lucy, absolutely loves going on outings with Sondra and buddies! She especially loves the beach where Sondra takes her swimming. Lucy loves to swim!!! Sondra has been an especially great resource for me because I have a back issue and when I can't take Lucy out I can count on Sondra to pick her up and take her on a fun filled excursion. I also know that Sondra's utmost concern is for Lucy's safety and that she has a great time. I really don't know what I would do without Your BUDDY and Me...I highly recommend the service and Sondra is incredible!

While my fiance and I escape for the holidays, we can always trust Sondra at Your Buddy and Me to take care of our tabby cat, Hopey (aka the Ho). We get frequent updates on how she is getting along with her parents out of town (for example, we get to know if she is throwing a raging party with all her cat and dog friends). Hopey is always well-taken care of and gets the love & company that she deserves. We also get excellently detailed reports about the day's activities. Sondra is very trustworthy and great with our cat! She can actually get our little hider to come out and sit with her on the couch (a miraculous feat)!

Sondra with Your Buddy and Me is the best! I have had her watch my cat Charlie while I was away for business for 4 days and then again when I was in Costa Rica for 9 days. She left detailed "report cards" for me letting me know how Charlie was doing each day and sent me photos of him playing and goofing around. She brought toys and treats along on her visits and made sure to learn what Charlie likes and is used to before I left on my trips. I could tell from the first time I met Sondra that she loves animals. She is very trustworthy, attentive and responsible. I would recommend Your Buddy and Me to all my friends with pets!

Whenever we leave our dog Charlie with Sondra we can always count on her to take great care of him. Ch-Ch-Ch-Charlie is a super high-energy dog but Sondra is patient and loving with him, and the excursions she takes him on allow him to get lots of exercise and return home a pooped pup. Sondra has been taking care of Charlie for over 3 years, while we are on vacation, on days we work too much, and even once when he was sick. we love the daily walk report cards Sondra leaves and when we are out of town she sends email up dates with pictures. Charlie completely adores sondra, I don't know what we would do with out her.

Can't add more than 5 stars. How unfortunate. Midas LOVES her. Always a good sign when your dog jumps up and down when she arrives.

Sondra is so great — while my husband is on deployment, she's helped out enormously by taking care of Pixel while I'm at work. Pixel is a little neurotic--she's genuinely sweet, but can be very timid and has a lot of "dislikes" (stairs, water, open areas, being leashed, pigeons, paper bags, riding in cars...you get the idea). Sondra came over to our apartment for the interview, got to know Pixel, gave us a thorough tour and overview of what she would do with Pixel during the day, etc. Not only is Pixel happy and calm during the hours she spends alone, but she's becoming a more confident and outgoing dog. If it wasn't for Sondra, I'd be so stressed about leaving Pixel alone during the day, or so broke from taking her to daycare all day, every day (even though our daycare is awesome too). She's been fabulous, and she goes out of her way to communicate how Pixel is doing!

My two big dogs absolutely love hanging out with Sondra and Your Buddy and Me. They get very excited when they see her and always come home tired and well exercised. She is very good with the dogs and a good business person as well. The reports are an extra touch that really tell me she pays attention to detail and I know that my pets are completely loved and safe when with her. I will always trust my babies with Sondra!
    — T.S.

Where to even begin...Sondra came by before I left on my 2-week holiday to meet the cats and stayed for about an hour to chat with me and play with the cats. She bought cat toys, wheat grass and kitty treats. She sent me daily emails, pictures and video so I wouldn't miss them too much. The constant updates and pictures were very much appreciated and I could definitely relax more knowing my cats were in great hands.

My dog has become so much more outgoing because of Your Buddy and Me. Sondra (the owner) truly cares about all of the animals she sees. I love that she leaves a little report card each time she takes our little guy out. Our dog is very shy, but he loves loves loves Sondra!
