Our puppy had a BLAST at Sammy's doggy day care! We loved getting all her pictures throughout the day, it made us feel great that our boy was being well cared for and got lots of love and attention!

Kayla is awesome. I trust no one with my puppy, I’m an extreme helicopter mom and worry constantly. She kept me updated with pictures all day which was really comforting, I always felt at ease. Her times were very flexible with my work schedule and I couldn’t be happier I left him with her! Thank you Kayla!!!

Jaden was very nice and easy to work with. He was very quick to respond. He sent pictures during the couple hour day care. Winston was happy when we came back. Will use Jaden again.

Brenda was great! This was our first time using Rover so we were a little nervous dropping Wrigley off. Brenda sent us multiple pictures and updates throughout the day! He came home happy and appeared to be well taken care of! We will definitely use Brenda again!

Kristy was great. Cleo was super happy. We did pick up and drop off for daily daycare. She was very flexible which was great as I had to emergency take care of my mom in the hospital and had a very unpredictable schedule.

Madison was an absolute gem! She was amazing at watching my puppy, kept me in the loop about how she was doing, and made sure my puppy felt loved and cared for. I can tell she truly loves dogs and enjoys being able to provide a fun, sweet place for them to be themselves and make great new dog friends!

Shaelea R. LOVES animals! If she sees one in need of care or abandoned, she will take it in. She saw a post of a man living in a car with 11 guinea pigs, needing a home for them, because he couldn't feed them anymore. She went and picked up all 11. She was able to safely rehome a few, she still has the rest, plus a few babies. Shaelea is very patient and caring. She has had a daycare business, in her home, for 9 years. The children and parents love her and feel safe leaving their children with her. Shaelea is very responsible and dependable. I highly recommend her!

About: I have raised dogs, cats, bunnies, horses, and chickens my entire life. I currently have a Pug and a Boston Terrier, both puppies. I work from home and can provide day care, over nights, walks, pop-ins, etc. I am right down the street from Gateway so if you need a place to drop your animal off on your way to work downtown, I make a convenient drop off location. Very flexible with times. Air conditioning inside, large fully fenced backyard, and walks daily. 24/7 availability for pet care so long as we communicate in advance. I work from home and can be available based on your needs. I am available for drop off and pick up any time. There are a few times throughout the day where I will be driving my kids to and from events. We can communicate and work around those times. I also have a keypad. Animals are watched closely in the home and kept inside the fence in the backyard under supervision. When on walks animals are always on leash and are one on one with me. Separate food and water bowls are used. My yard is cleared of excrement daily. All animals must be up to date with shots and worming and flea/tick prevention.

About: I’m the friend that’s relied on for training support. Puppy, Senior citizen, separation anxiety to adoptee experience; 10+ years. I’m passionate about learning new training techniques, implementing, and teaching. Every dog and companion deserves to understand each other. I have a 3 year old xl breed. Every day we focus on consistency and communication. I personally focus on the individual needs specific to my companions for the best life experience. From avid exercise to slow paced walks to muscle and joint massage and even reinforcing habits that create healthy confidence. I love paying attention to body language and understanding what it means for a companion as well as the companion’s caretaker and being able to provide comfort and training techniques based off of that. I can’t wait to be a certified dog trainer and help people understand there’s no such thing as a bad or impossible breed. It’s all about understanding, communication, implementation, and consistency. My goal is to keep your companions day as regular and consistent as possible. We will be on time for walks, they will get a lot of attention, I love animal body language so I’ll be able to build a connection with your companion based on their comfortability level, and I prefer to go by your rules. I understand no dogs on couches and I also fully support couch cuddles. It’s all about your companions happiness and well being along with providing ease and comfort for you and I will make sure to provide everything you need to maintain that. I chose a neighborhood great for king walks and close to downtown for easy access to greys lake. apartment that offered a dog park for comfortable potty breaks. And being right next to greys lake offers great adventures. I can crate if required, as I crate my 2 yr old for his safety. I encourage as many “rules” and your guidance to abide by to make your companions day to day as regular and enjoyable as possible. This is all about you guys and making your lives easy and comfortable.

Met Savannah at a local dog park about a year ago and the rest is history! We often planned times to go to the dog park for play dates. Savannah heard how stressed I was about having Hershey alone (Hershey has separation anxiety) while I was working full time or when I had to leave for weeks at a time for the military. Savannah offered to watch Hershey during the day while I was working or on long leaves so Hershey could feel comfortable and loved while I was gone. Hershey loved having someone to play with often. Would definitely recommend Savannah to watch your loved ones. She is honestly the best!

About: I have lived with dogs 20+ years of my life. My partner, Anthony, and I currently have 2 dogs of our own who are both rescues. Arthur is our 6 year old playful, loving lab mix and Taz is our 4 month old sassy pit mix puppy! We love caring for pets and are excited to spread the love to more doggy friends! You can count on us to be reliable, respectful, engaged, and loving to your pets. We will ensure that they get exercise and the love they need while under our care. We will make sure the environment is safe for all pets and make sure your pet has access to food and water at all times. We work from home full time and will make sure your pet has the necessary potty breaks they need and will not be left in a kennel all day long. We love dogs and are excited to provide a safe + comfortable place for your pet so you can enjoy your time away from home knowing your dog(s) is/are in good hands. Anthony and I work from home, which makes pet care fit very easily into our daily and weekly routine. We have 2 dogs of our own and we never leave them home alone longer than 4 hours. We have a partially fenced in yard. The yard is safe and a great size to give your pet ample space to run around and exercise.
