Sam was fantastic! My dog Roz loved her immediately. Sam was willing to help me out with very little notice and she showed up on time every day. I'll definitely contact her again!

Paws and Relax Dog Sitting

My name is Sam, I am 19 years old, and am eager to care for your animal friends!

I have had dogs for 10 years of my life and is the primary caretaker for my full bred pit bull, Bruno. Animals have been my greatest passion since I was very little (aside from art) and I am so greatful to be doing this as my full time job. Are you outside my 8 mile radius ...

What Sam would like to know about your dog

Before caring for your animal friends I would like to know a couple of things.
• Does your dog have any habits?
• Is there a specific way you would like me to disipline your pets if need be? (Such as crate time or verbal discipline.)
• Do you have any other pets I will be caring for?
• Is there a vet or emergency contact you would like me to call in case of emergency?
• Any other likewise information. I will have a checklist for our meet-and greet to make sure I can know your dogs ways.
I do not have breed preferences however would like to know the weight and breed of your pets before I care for them. I may not be capable of walking larger dogs depending on their tolerance to leashes. I use harnesses for safety. No dogs slip out of their leash in my care.
