Samantha did a wonderful job taking care of my dogs. I knew the whole time that they were in good hands and she took care of them as if they were her own. Every picture she sent me my boys looked very happy!

When we come back home while Sam has cared for our dogs, they are well rested, calm and not overly excited to see us like they are if we leave them with someone else. Sam has a special gift when it comes to loving our dogs.

I love dogs of all types

I have been pet sitting for my family and friends solo for 12 years and helping with my own since I was 7. Owners will have a peace of mind leaving their pets with me knowing that I will follow care instructions to the letter. I have cared for dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds. As long as the dog is friendly size doesn't matter to me. I treat dogs like I treat the ...

What Samantha would like to know about your dog

Their disposition what makes them happy, sad, angry. Do they have any special noise or action they do (For example: my dog will whine and do circles when happy). What scares them? What are warning signs for if they get sick or generally don't feel well? What should I do if this happens? (Note: I do not plan on them getting sick and will only give them what I am told to. However, emergencies happen and I don't want to be caught off guard) Are there spots he/she doesn't like petted? I don't have to have all of this it's just nice to know. As long as they're friendly I don't have preferences.

When Samantha watches your pet

Walks around the neighborhood
fetch (ball, stick, or frisbee)
tug of war
lots of belly rubs and petting
movie time
Listening to music or a story (I don't know why, but dogs love this)

If ok with the owners:
Bath
Brushing
Bubble chase (I blow bubbles that the dog(s) try to catch)
Picture session (I like taking pictures and with your permission I can send you daily pictures of stuff your dog(s) did that day. These pictures will only be shared with you not posted any where except by you. It's included in the cost and just something fun I like to do so owners know their dog(s) is/are in good hands)
