About Samantha

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Is your dog in need of some exercise? Work long hours? Going away on vacation? Well look no further! I offer a trusted dog care service that offers dog walking, hiking, training, in-home pet sitting and play dates guaranteed to get Fido's tail wagging.

I specialize in: PERSONALIZED DOG WALKS -GROUP HIKES - TRAINING. This includes a FULL hour (or longer) of hiking through many different wooded trails throughout the area. I typically have many different dogs at one time creating a "pack like" mentality for each individual dog. Your dog will learn to socialize in a healthy pack setting and under the leadership of a pack leader, and as a result, will have better social skills. Your dog will also learn to follow the rules of a human, and learn to see humans as pack leaders, and as a result will likely be more attentive and better behaved. I create custom walks for each individual group of dogs per day depending on their energy level, age, and socialization type.

I also offer individual walks for clients not interested in the group hikes. This can include walks around your neighborhood, or on a trail without any other dogs.

I am a certified dog trainer, insured & bonded, & Pet CPR/First-aid certified.

Oct 2016
When our regular dog walker had to take a medical leave, Sam filled in. She was awesome! She was super enthusiastic and we could tell right off that she would be a good fit. Her love for dogs was very apparent. She came twice a day to let our dog Spirit out. She is very reliable, trustworthy, and Spirit, loved her. I would absolutely recommend her.

We are so happy that we found Samantha to take care of our dog while we were away this past week. She agreed to take him overnight with very little notice. She seemed really knowledgable and made me feel very comfortable leaving our lab with her. She made sure he had plenty of exercise and plenty of attention. It was so nice to know he was treated as a part of her family and he wasn't left in a kennel somewhere. She even sent him home with a "report card" to let us know how he did. I was so pleased with her care and recommend her highly to anyone needing dog boarding. What a find! Karie
