Sam took such great care of our puppy for 3 weeks while we traveled abroad. He kept us updated and informed of her well being and was very responsive when we checked in to hear how things were going. We’ll definitely be using Sam again in future.

I've known Sam for the past few years and he has been walking dogs for the entire time I have known him. Sam is a responsible, caring and professional caretaker and takes wonderful care of any animal he services. Sam is comfortable with any variety of dogs, and would be the first person I would call for my dog! I highly recommend Sam to walk or care for your pet anytime :)

Several of my clients became consistent, ones that I kept ...

I like to take dogs to local parks and on long walks around the local neighborhood. I know several dog parks and appropriate places to bring dogs in the Arlington area and surrounding towns, including Fresh Pond, Horn Pond, Thorndyke Field dog park, and Menotomy Rocks Park. I also love to play with dogs in their backyards if they are big enough, where I can throw balls and other toys for them, and tire them out so they can sleep and relax at the end of the walk or visit.
