Samuel and Rachael were simply amazing. They are experienced dog owners and lovely people. They sent frequent photos and updates and really gave us ease of mind while we were out of town. We could not be more happy or grateful for their help, and recommend them 100% to anyone!!

Very clear Theo enjoyed his stay! Samuel was super responsive and very flexible with the pick up time, which I really appreciated. Will definitely ask to watch Theo next time I’m out of town.

Lola was so well taken care of, and she seems so at ease after us having traveled all weekend. Samuel was extremely communicative and really made sure our shy pup felt safe and secure. Would 100% recommend Samuel!

A dog-lover you can truly trust.

* Let’s save a life together! — I’m donating a percentage of every booking to a charity that helps dogs in need.

My first memory is playing with my dog and ever since I was always surrounded by pets.

I am a caring, patient, trustworthy dog lover who will take care of your dog like it was one of my own (I have 2 small dogs - Yuengling & Carly).

I will walk, play, ...

What Samuel would like to know about your dog

ALL breeds & sizes are welcome!

I would like to know if your dog has any aggressive tendencies and/or showed aggression towards people or animals before?
(that’s ok, no such thing as a bad dog — sometimes dogs can act out of fear or impulse when triggered and I want to be prepared for that impulse / natural response if needed).

Is your dog crate trained?
(I have a large crate which I do not use unless it is part of the dog daily routine or makes the dog feel safe as a familiar surrounding)

Does your dog have any known triggers? Any special behaviors I should be aware of?

When Samuel watches your pet

The house I live in has a big private fenced yard for your dog to run around and play! Providing frequent potty breaks and walks around the neighborhood for your dog to curiously explore.
Also located minutes away from 2 public dog parks (Shaw dog park and S street dog park) and a number of vets (14th St) in case of an emergency.

For dog walking requests - I will walk your dog on his routine walk route so he’s comfortable and familiar with the surrounding. Upon request, I will be happy to take your dog to a play day in the park :)
