Katherine and I are big fans of Sam and so are our two kitties! Sam is so great, she followed all of our instructions perfectly and spent lots of quality time with our furbabies – gave them lots of pets, playtime, and TLC. Sam texted us adorable daily update photos and she’s a great communicator, always quick to respond. We 100% trust Sam and she’ll be our go-to kitty nanny for whenever we go ...
Sam is amazing with all animals. She has extensive experience with dogs and is extremely responsible and caring. I know I can leave my pup with her without having any worries!
Your Fur-Baby's New Best Friend!
I have owned dogs and cats my entire life so I am open to watching and walking both breeds. I know how important fur babies are and will stay in constant communication with you whether through call, text, or picture updates. I am also a photographer so you can bet the pictures will come back very creative and fun :)
I recently adopted a 1 year old black cat with the most beautiful bright yellow eyes ...
What Samantha would like to know about your dog
Below are a few questions I would like to know to ensure your pet is happy and healthy while mom and/or dad are away. I want to make sure your pet sticks to their normal routine as closely as possible so not to induce any unneeded anxiety from both you and your pet.
1. How many and what type of pets will I be taking care of?
2. How much and how often does the pet eat, play, go potty?
2. How does your pet walk? Do I need to steer clear of other animals or are they okay to sniff and interact? Do they pull or use certain commands?
3. How do you deal with bad behavior (chewing/digging, etc.)? What expectations do you have for me? Are there certain commands or words you use?
4. How do you reward good behavior? Do you give them a treat or extra affection?
5. What is your pet(s) favorite toys and games?
5. Is your pet allergic to anything?
6. Is there anything I need to keep an eye out for (behavioral changes, a specific spot in your yard they dig at, does your pet try to run when the door opens, etc.)?
7. What are your pet’s triggers? What are they scared of? What will they react to? How do you deal with these reactions (thunder shirt, anxiety medicine, etc.)?
8. Is there anything else you would like me to know beforehand?
Here are some not-so-fun but necessary questions to ask:
1. What should I do in case of medical emergency?
2. What should I do in case the pet gets out when they’re not supposed to? Do they come when called? Do they go to a certain location?
3. What to do if I need to clean up a mess? If your pet has a potty accident, where are your cleaning supplies located and how do you usually clean up a mess?
