About Samantha

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! I am certified in Pet First Aid and CPR, flexible and very open to last-minute bookings! Dogs have always been an important part of my family, and for almost 10 years I have been lucky enough to share my life with my sweet-hearted best friend, Rascal.

My home, which I share with Rascal and his human dad, is a calm, quiet and clean (but dog-friendly!), spacious house on a quiet cul-de-sac surrounded by nearby forest and directly facing a park which was once farmland, providing a brilliant hilly venue for games of fetch.

From there we can walk straight up to a picturesque ridge and more forest, or play in the baseball field across the road, but we especially like to take hikes in forests or anywhere by a lake, river or waterfall - we are so spoilt for choice here! We also have an enclosed well-lit yard with high fences (where dogs will always be supervised), and sometimes we like to play fetch in the house, because why not?

I will be your dog’s caregiver and companion, but as a bonus, my husband also often works from home and is also a hands-on owner / dog dad. If we do need to run an errand, our house will be alarmed, and we have cameras to check in on the dogs to ensure that everyone is safe and happy (and more-than-likely sleeping!).

I will only ever take on 1-2 vacationing dogs at a time. This is not a regular pet care facility, just a dog-loving family with some flexibility in our schedules and the ability to often work from home, who love to make new canine friends and keep them safe while their own family is away. Rascal is very easy to get along with. He's a very relaxed and happy, neutered and well-trained boy with no possessive tendencies and an equal love of sleep and play, trumped only by food!

As a loving dog owner I know how important it is that you can feel relaxed in the knowledge that your dog is being looked after in the right way when you can’t be with them, so I will take notes of your dog's needs and follow instructions well.

I am also happy to send regular updates and photos, because I know how nice it is to receive them!

Thanks for considering us. We look forward to meeting you and your best friend!

Our King Charles Cavalier, Buzz, has stayed with Samantha many times, and he has always been very happy and settled there. He gets on very well with her sweet pug, Rascal, and is always well looked after with hikes, playing in the field opposite her house, and lots of cuddles. We feel confident that he is in a nice place being looked after as one of the family until we come to take him home. She is also very good at sending us regular photos of Buzz on his adventures! :-)
