Samantha watched both of my dogs, one being a 3 month old puppy. She was excellent and sent updates and pictures often. I really feel like she took my dogs in as her own. We will use her again!

Sam was fantastic when I left Bryce with her over the weekend. She sent me videos and updates. Bryce was so tired when he got home and didn’t want to do anything but chill out!

What can I say about Samantha? She was wonderful. Usually my dog, Meeko is a little skittish with people who she doesn't know, and it takes her forever to warm up, and with a large dog like her (Great Dane). Meeko perked straight up to her, and she was so happy with her the entire day. The whole time I received updates as requested and then some!! I don't trust many people with my animals ...

When Samantha watches your pet

This all depends on the dog and their activity level. I have a large fenced in yard with a sprinkler system and kid pool to keep them cool. They will always be supervised. I have cooling bandanas and frequently make doggy popsicles made out of the best ingredients
