About Samantha

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I have been an animal lover all of my life. I have one right now myself and he is as loved as much as my children.

I worked in animal rescue for a year where I cleaned kennels, walked dogs, found dogs and cats their forever homes, gave shots and other medications when needed, fostered different dogs and cats in my home, and whatever else you can think of in animal rescue. I absolutely loved it, but chose to stay home when my second child was born.

We have a nice home with a fenced back yard where the dogs love to run and play! Everything here is safe and secure for them. When we meet for the first time, I'd like to find out all I can about your dogs routine so that we can keep them as comfortable and as happy here as they are at home.

Being a stay at home mom, I am always available and would love to host your dog during the day, overnight, or come to your house for visits or walks! I am available for last minute bookings and holidays.

Do you have other animals at home that need care while you're gone? Cats, hamsters, turtles, whatever you need covered, let's chat about their needs and we can create a custom quote for them as well.

She took great care of my two dogs! One has special needs and she handled him with no problems at all. She also kept me updated throughout my trip.
My dog is fairly young so I was nervous about having someone watch him. However after the first day he was so excited to get dropped off there so he could play all day that any fear I had was gone. Great sitter, will use her whenever I need a doggy daycare.

This was the first time I booked with Samantha. She was great. My dog Naya had a great time and Samantha even sent me photos while on vacation to let me know she was in good hands.. Would definitely book with her again!
We booked our pups stay for 5 nights with Samantha at the last minute when our original plans fell through. She was prompt with all communications, particularly when we messaged to check in on Toby. She sent several pictures and updates over the course of the stay- cute little videos of him playing with their puppy.

She shared her concerns with us when Toby didn't eat well the first couple days, but let us know when his appetite returned. :) The night we picked Toby up we had a flight delay, and they were so kind and accommodating with the change in our plans. Toby was happy to see us and very tired from all his playing. :)

Thanks Samantha!

Samantha did great! We received picture updates and returned home to a happy dog.
Super friendly, quick responses and great updates and pics of our pup! our puppy came home very worn out from all the play she got at Samantha's. Will definitely book in the future.
Mooney had a great time with Samantha, and apparently played with the other dogs almost non-stop. When I brought her home, she was so tired she slept for nearly a whole day before she got her energy back! It was worth every penny just to have a tired Aussie! Samantha sent a picture shortly after I left, and a few messages to update us. Overall it was a good experience and I'm sure Mooney would love to go play with Hotchner some more!

I am very happy with my pets stay and the care Samantha provided. She was kind from the first interaction and welcoming to my pups. She even followed up to tell me how they were. I had a peace of mind the entire time and knew they were in good hands. Don't hesitate to book Samantha your pets will be in good hands. I would book her again.

Cha chi loved his stay with Samantha and gang. He slept for 2 days he was so worn out from all the playing. I feel like I have met a new friend in Samantha and will use her service again.
Max had great experience at Samantha's place. He enjoyed with other 2 dogs and everyday pictures sent by samantha's made us feel at ease for our whole trip. I would definitely keep Max again at her place!
Samantha was a joy to work with. She loved our dog and made him feel at home. This was his first boarding experience and she made it very positive! I will definitely use her services again.
Samantha provided excellent service. She was extremely prompt in replying, which enabled me to set up service with very short notice. She created a personalized reservation for me because I requested services specific to my situation. Samantha provided the service as agreed. On return, the animals were happy and well cared for. I will call Samantha again when I need help. Thank you, gal!

We needed someone on short notice to watch our small dog. Samantha got back to me in a matter of minutes. I took my dog to meet her and her dogs later that day...as we were leaving the next day. Samantha was very sweet and so were her dogs. They were quite larger than our dog but they were very careful with her. We dropped our dog back off with her later that night. During our vacation, she checked in with me to let me know how our dog was doing & responded quickly when I checked in with her. I was very comfortable with her and I definitely recommend her.

Samantha was just what we were looking for. She kept us update about our pet and did a good job. Our dog like her right from the beginning. I would highly recommend her to watch your pet.
Xena really enjoyed her stay, she had sad eyes when we were pulling away from the house. She was very tired the rest of the day from playing with her dog friends for the stay. I would highly recommend her & will definately have Xena stay again when we need to go away.

Samantha invited me over well in advance of my needed time to see her home, meet her and her family and to see how my pack would integrate or have any problems. When I arrived she had a very warm response to my dogs and I could tell she was experienced at making them at ease in unfamiliar surroundings. She turned out to be just what I needed for my few days away and I would use her in the future .

She does a good job keeping me updated and keeping the pups happy!
It was so wonderful to let my dog stay at home and have Samantha check on her once a day. I had so much relief in knowing someone would be looking after my dog. I loved getting pictures and updates of how my dog was doing. I'll be using Samantha again!

Samantha did an awesome job with my pups! I got regular updates and working with her was super easy. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone.
Samantha was great with my dogs. It is clear that she loves the dogs and treated them as her own. She did a great job communicating with me and keeping me updated on my pups. I would use her again!
Samantha was amazing with our dog jake. I look forward to using her again! She was great with Jake and her dogs and ours got along great. Thanks again!
Samantha immediately made us feel comfortable in her home and even texted pictures throughout Privates stay and he looked really happy and in his element. I would definitely recommend!
Samantha is a compassionate and cooperative host. We had several missteps during our move, including one of our dogs requiring stitches prior to her stay, and Samantha worked with us to ensure that our dogs were well cared for (and even helped with bandage changes and medications). She even kept us up-to-date with photos, a video, and messages. We would definitely book with Samantha again and we happily recommend her to other owners.

Samantha took our reservation at the last minute. She greeted us and our puppy took right to her place. She kept texting our puppy's stay which helped us feel comfortable. This was our puppy's first time away. Great Job! Thanks
Awesome care and a delight to know our baby is safe and happy with Samantha
Samantha was completely wonderful and incredibly flexible with all the madness that was happening. We brought my dog out to visit my uncle, but had no expectations that he, at almost 90lbs, would be able to stay when my uncle's five would together not weigh half that. When I originally contacted Samantha about using her, she was very understanding of how incredibly uncertain all our plans were, and she was happily able to keep in touch over text with me throughout the visit.
Gilbert had a great time while he did end up being with her, and enjoyed playing with her two resident dogs. The flexibility and willingness to accommodate took a huge burden off my back.

She was really nice. Fast response whenever we asking about our dogs. She also sent video to show what my dogs doing. Really recommend to pick her become your dog sister. Will back with her again.
We had a wonderful experience with Samantha. She agreed to meet us before our vacation and was very friendly and professional. Upon our request, she brought her dog over during her visits to keep our dog company. The best part was the daily updates and pictures. It truly made us feel comfortable. We will definitely contact Samantha for our next vacation.

So happy we found Samantha, especially since we have such short notice. She was very flexible with times and the dogs were very happy and comfortable as soon as they walked through her door. Her dogs are great and so is she. I will defiantly bring my dogs back here next time I'm in the area, they seemed to have a blast and we got some cute photo updates from our boys. Thank you Samantha for watching Zorro and Twix!

We are so thankful that we found Samantha to help us out with our doggies when we are out of town! She went out of her way to do meet and greets between her pups and ours before we left and put any nerves that we had to rest. Both of our doggies love her and she is truly an amazing lady. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for someone to take care of their animals.

Samantha was very accommodating and kind. I received daily pictures which showed me, I'm afraid, my dogs taking over her couch.
Samantha was very helpful with us reserving our two dogs visit with short notice. Kasey and Roxie enjoyed their stay!
