About Samantha

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey there! I've been caring for pets since I was very little and have always had an affinity towards all animals. I've owned a dog, cat, mice, birds, and fish, and have taken care of hamsters, degus, and rats.

I live in Parkdale, south of King St. West which means my place is very close to the lake and that gives me access to lots of bike trail, beach, and open grass where we can walk, run, and play! I like to explore different areas of the city, too, so we may go for a walk by the lake in the morning, but then explore the city in the afternoon. I always like to keep things interesting!

I don't have much experience with animals who have special needs but I'm sure if we sit down to chat, I can learn how to tend to them properly.

Sam Clare and I have been friends for a long time and I've seen her mature into an incredible and unique adult. Something we have shared since childhood is our mutual love for animals. Sam is just one of those people who would LOVE to own a giant farm and adopt every shelter animal and spend all day caring for them. Her face lights up when she sees anyone's pet and it's only a matter of moments before she's on the floor making friends. This is not to say that she is overly outgoing with animals- my aunt who lives across the street from my childhood home had a very difficult and aggressive dog who was unfriendly towards strangers. Sam was able to handle the encounters with ease and poise- she was mindful, attentive, and respectful. Sam's experience with family pets is useful too- growing up (and I'm pretty sure he's still kicking) she had a high-energy, small dog named Einstein. This is a misnomer because he was not the smartest dog (although she'll tell you he is a dog genius). Einstein would escape out the front door any chance he got, and since it was a family home (door always opening and closing), this happened with some regularity. Sam was always patient, knew which way he would go, and went out to get him with a smile and a laugh.

I really can't say anything more- Sam is one of those people who you hope will be the person who adopts a dog. You know that she's going to pay close attention to everything about the animal, and treat them like a serious family member (which of course they are). I would leave any of my animals with Sam and know that she would treat them with as much love and care as I myself would. What more could you want in a caregiver?

Also just a side note but I think having this job would bring so much joy into Sam's life- it wouldn't just be a task for her- she's so passionate about animals I think it would be the thing she looks forward to most each week!

Feel free to contact me with any questions I always love bragging about my friend Sam!

Samantha had looked after my dog several times when I have travelled for work. I am always confident that my dog is well cared for by Samantha and it is such a relief knowing that my fur baby is happy and safe. She always listens well to any instructions I leave behind and if she has questions she makes sure to clarify.
