About Samantha

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My name is Samantha! I am a mom to a beautiful, happy 2 year old, two amazing, sweet step-daughters, and a lazy, but super friendly cat named Bandit.

I have been caring for animals of all sorts since I was very young. I grew up with horses, cats, birds, fish, hamsters, and of course, dogs! I have mostly had and worked with medium to large breeds, but have had the pleasure of working with some little ones too.

My step daughters are here part-time, but are great with animals of all kinds and have three dogs at their other home that they care for. They are great playmates! My 2 year old LOVES all critters, but is very gentle with them (courtesy of lessons from the cat).

We are home all day. We live on a dead-end street with a large park a few houses down. I am a jogger and would love nothing more than to have some four-legged company on my jogs! (or we can just walk :-) ) We have baby gates available and a fully enclosed, chain-link fenced in yard.

I have been caring for animals as long as I can remember and know how important our fur babies are. I will give them the utmost care and attention! I have worked with aggressive dogs in the past, but will have to carefully consider taking on a people aggressive dog, for my daughter's safety. I am more than happy to keep them in a sectioned off part of the house or yard though. If your dog has aggressive tendencies, I will consider them on a case by case basis.

Thank You!

Samantha and her family were great as usual! Cooper seems very happy when he is there.
Samantha was very accomadating to my last minute request. My dog Oscar is a very active puppy that is still working on potty training. He seemed to have a good time and took a nap on the way home. I would recommend Samantha and am planning to use her on a regular basis.

Been to several different boarding locations and Samantha still remains our favorite.
Samantha was great! She kept us informed daily on how our dog was doing and sent several pictures. Roxy had a great time and came home exhausted from having too much fun!
Samantha is fantastic, from the first moment I met her, I knew my furbaby would be in great hands. She texted me updates and lots of pictures while i was away. I would highly recommend her!
First off Samantha was amazing! We had a last min booking and Samantha worked with us to make everything easy. It's stressful to find a good sitter. Mollie had a blast! Pictures and updates were very nice too see. Not every dog sitter does this. We highly recommend Samantha! Looking toward to using her in the future. Thank you again.

Samantha is very upbeat and an animal lover. Ellie our 60 lb lab mix had the pleasure of staying with her. Ellie was in great shape and great spirits when we picked her up.
Samantha is friendly, professional, awesome! She went out of her way to make sure our dog, Sadie, had a great overnight on her first time away from home. We'll be back! Richard and Diane Goers
Very prompt and super friendly! Will bring Max back again.
Everything went well. We received daily pictures and update. We will use again for our vacation in July.
Samantha and her family made Sydni feel right at home. We got updates and pictures from her frequently, and it was by far the best experience we have had for our dog while we were away!
Samantha and her family were wonderful in accepting our 4 month old golden doodle for a week. We were concerned about leaving a puppy but we received texts and emails daily which made us feel at ease. When we picked him up he looked great and was very happy. We will definitely use Samantha again for our next vacation.
