I am a new customer to Rover.com and I was very nervous to leave my fur baby with a complete stranger. I should not have been anxious because Samantha took wonderful care of my dog. She sent me updates with pictures on a regular basis to let me know how my dog was doing which made me feel more at ease. I will definitely have Samantha watch my dog again in the future.

We left our dog Mojo with Samantha for a week and felt very comfortable from the start. Samantha sent us photos and updates and Mojo had likely more fun there than at home. Will definitely be a repeat customer.

Samantha has both walked and watched my dogs multiple times. She has a couple small dogs of her own that are super well behaved and friendly. She takes the time during walks to reinforce positive training as well! Whenever she takes my dogs for a walk, they come back happy with their tongues hanging out and ready for a nap. She’s even sent me pictures during walks and playtime! One of my dogs can be ...

13 yrs. Experience with Dogs

I have about 13 years of experience in dog care from 5 lbs-130 lbs (but have a weight limit for the dogs I do boarding and daycare for in my home, as my dogs are very old and small) but most of my experience is with small dogs, as I have a Maltese mix and an Affenpinscher mix, and have had a Shih Tzu and a Dachshund, and have sat for many different small dog ...

What Samantha would like to know about your dog

I will not accept any dog of any size if they have or have showed any severe aggressive behaviour or resource guarding (toys, food, etc.) in the past towards other dogs, animals, or humans. I do not have kids, but my 10 year old niece is sometimes over for a couple hours during the week, so all dogs must be good with kids, cats and other dogs. I also have a fairly high deck with stairs that go from my house down to the backyard as well as from the main floor to the front door, so any dogs with severe arthritis or other muscle/bone issues may not be the best fit for my house, as they would have to walk up and down the stairs to get outside to the backyard and for walks out the front door that they may struggle with.

When Samantha watches your pet

I have a large backyard for playing fetch and running around. I also live near a long path with a large field at the end of it, but am not comfortable letting dogs that I do not know off their leash in the field, just to be safe and cautious in case they try to run away from me, but I have two very long leashes, so they’d be able to run around. I am also walking distance from a lake and would enjoy walking dogs around the lake if they are physically able to go for long walks like that. I only have a few small dog toys as my dogs are old and don’t play with toys much anymore, I also do not have any bones as I don’t allow my dogs to have them, but you are welcome to send your doggy with a bone if you’d like, that wouldn’t be shared with my dogs, as they can’t chew bones really anyway since they only have a few teeth left.
