Thank you to Sam for hosting Ellie! Their home was perfect for my beagle and their poodles were very welcoming. He provided constant pics and feedback throughout the stay and Ellie was so rested when she came home. Will use Sam again when I’m in Boothbay Harbor and reccomend him to all! You will not find a more loving couple to care for your pup!

this was my first experience with dog sitting after just recently getting a puppy. I had a meet and greet with Sam and I felt so comfortable with the situation I was leaving Colby in. It made my trip so much more enjoyable knowing Colby was in a safe , fun place with caring people. I am definitely using Sam again for my next trip. Thank you!

Sam clearly has a way with dogs and loves caring for and playing with them. My dog had a great stay. Sam is definitely my go-to sitter from now on.
