Samantha was awesome with our two little (but actually big) boys! She was very informative through out her stay and let us know how they were doing. It was really nice to be away from home but still be updated here and there- without having to ask! She even swept the floor for us since our pups shed awfully bad- which was so very nice of her. I will Definitely be using Samantha again- my ...

We used Samantha a couple of time. The first few were great. She recently went to let our dogs out and “accidentally” took our house key with her. She never messaged me saying she had it. I had to contact her multiple times to find out if she had the key before I could get a response. I then asked her to send the key back to me. She said she would and I never ...

I had a very bad experience with this sitter, she did not change the food or water for my dog it seems the entire time she was here, the dog bowl had fungus and mold in the food and the water bowl was slimy with stagnate water. He drank water for like 15 minutes when we got home, and we prepared him a chicken dinner since he was starving- to top it off we had ...

Empathetic Sitter

Hi, I'm Sam! I was born into a family of cats (oh, and some humans!) but got my first dog when I was 5. An 18 lb Bichon Frise, she was my last full breed. To this day I have a passion for white dogs of any size! Currently, I only have two cats as my apartment policy limits animals. Both cats are rescues!

Since I was a small child I have been taking care ...

What Samantha would like to know about your dog

Please let me know your local Vet's info! I've never had to use emergency contacts on the clock but if that changes, I want to be prepared.

Tell me about your baby's routine. Do they prefer walks in the morning? Couch potato? Dinner once a day or two meals? Wet food or dry or both? Where are your leashes? What "rules" does your baby have (i.e. no sitting on furniture, no entry to dining room, etc.)
Any behaviors that I should know about your puppy? Do they try to sneak out the door? Do they dislike for a certain area on their bodies to be petted? Let me know so I can provide the best care possible for your furbabies. :)

When Samantha watches your pet

I cater to the needs of my client, so let me know what your furbaby enjoys! If a pup seems to enjoy longer walks or runs, I will do that with them. If they enjoy cuddling indoors more, I can do that! If they like to be brushed for the entire 30 visit then I'm here to make them happy. Whatever I can do to give you peace of mind and to make your pet happy and healthy I want to do.

I usually go for walks around your block/neighborhood but am open to going to any nearby parks as long as you are comfortable with it!
