About Samantha

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are dog lovers!

We have five adorable Russian Toys who get along with most dogs, although they may take some time to warm up to a few. We have each dog meet our new guest one at a time so they can get acquainted and reduce any stress for your dog(s) and ours. However, if the dogs do not get along we have separate areas where the dogs can stay comfortably while both receiving love and affection. Our dogs have their own "dog room" where they stay while we are away from the house. We also have a family room downstairs where guest dogs can stay while we are unable to supervise them together. We have a medium size and small dog crate for guest use. If you require a larger crate, please bring your own. Your dog can sleep either on the couch downstairs (or bed) or in their crate- whichever they prefer and is most comfortable for them. Our main focus is to ensure that your dog(s) receive love and attention while you are away so they can enjoy their time away from home.

We have a fenced in backyard where your dog can run loose and play. We always supervise the dogs while they are outside and are happy to play fetch in the yard. We have a walk-able neighborhood and are happy to bring your dog(s) out for a walk (weather permitting).

I have a fantastic job, working with dogs in a Dog Cognition Lab, where I study animal behavior, specifically the bond between human and dog. Essentially- we are obsessed with dogs- big and small :)

It's important to me that your dog is comfortable while you are away. I know it can be stressful for them to change routine and I seek to ensure the process if very smooth and comforting. I want your pup to feel like it is part of our family while you are away, through lounging on the couch to accompanying us on our walks and trips to the dog run.

It is not necessary, but we would love to schedule a Meet-n-Greet to see if we are the perfect fit for you. Also, please ask any questions that you may have and I am happy to answer.

Great home; my dogs loved it! Very clean home with fenced yard. They love animals and it shows. They kept me up-to-date with photos of my pups enjoying themselves. My dogs were happy and well cared for. Would definitely recommend them.
Samantha was great...wonderful dog sitter!
Samantha did a great job with Bosley, he was there for a week and she said he fit right in. Samantha kept me updated with daily pictures and texts. I would definitely recommend Samantha and I will use her again. Ellen
The minute my Winnie met Samantha you could tell Samantha had a way with dogs. She ran right up to her happy as could be. Samantha was amazing. She sent us pictures and updates so we could see how Winnie was doing. Samantha took the time to make sure Winnie was comfortable in her new surroundings. Winnie even made a new doggy friend on her stay. Winnie will definitely be staying again!

We would highly recommend Samantha to care for your furry family member. We have a high energy 18 month old Aussie, Samantha took care of her with lots of TLC. I told her we were working on obedience; and she assisted us with her training. Samantha sent lots of pictures and updates. She knew it was hard for us to leave Shilo with folks we did not know, so she went out of her way to help alleviate our concerns. I will recommend Samantha to my friends and family. Sue Kosar

Dizzy had an outstanding stay with Samantha, Brian, and Maddie! This was the first time that I had to leave my beagle with a stranger and I had no worry in the world after our meet & greet before the "vacay." They sent me pictures throughout the weekend and it was clear that Dizzy was enjoying his vacation. My dog, who is pretty skeptical of other dogs, even made a friend out of Maddie. I highly recommend Samantha & Brian!!!
