About Samantha

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there,

My name is Samantha. I got my first dog when I was about 4. I remember begging my parents for a dog all those years back and the deal was that my brother and I had to share the responsibilities. Now, I have four dogs in the house that we care for. I also have experience with toads, bunnies and hamsters.
A typical day would include a morning feeding, morning walk, lots of cuddles, afternoon outing to the park if the weather permits and afternoon feeding. Some dogs, (if they enjoy swimming) can also swim in the pool and more energetic dogs can go trekking in the forest behind the house if they enjoy adventures. After that, we could play fetch or play tug of war in the huge acres of my backyard.If need be, I can also give the dog a bath during the day. We have a nice huge whirlpool bathtub upstairs that can accommodate any dog.
The only dogs I cannot accommodate are dogs that do not do well with other dogs, as I do have four other dogs in the house. And I cannot accommodate for large dogs who do leash pulling, as I am very small and they would probably pull me to the ground. But smaller dogs who leash pull are absolutely fine.
I am a student so I do not have a day job. I also do all of my schoolwork from home. I will be home with the dogs all day and all night.
I can guarantee we will treat each and every dog like our own and be sure he/she is very happy for their stay.

Samantha is great. At our meet & greet Benny & Owen basically were right at home and snuggling with Samantha and her sister.

While I was away Samantha sent pictures of them and they even got a bath. This was the first time away from them and it felt good to know they were in the best of hands at Samantha's home!

Thanks Samantha!!
The family was friendly and accommodating. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing our dog was in a good home. Riley was happy the minute he walked into the house. The family all loved him.
My 60 pound American Staffordshire Bobby spent 4 days with Samantha and her family and thoroughly enjoyed his time there. I think he was even a little depressed on the way home when I picked him up after returning from my vacation. Samantha has other dogs who are very friendly and well socialized, and she and her family treated Bobby with the same live and affection that they showed toward their own dogs. I received multiple videos from Samantha showing that Bobby was well cared for and having a great time. Bobby will definitely be spending more time with Samantha on future vacations!
Samantha is a kind warm person who loves all beasts. She was also flexible when I needed boarding for an extra day. She sent me cute pictures of my dogs while I was away and one of her holding my sleeping Rosie and her arms. I would definitely hire her again.


The only reason for four stars Instead of five is that my dogs came home smelling like cigarette smoke, but I don't think this was within her control.
Samantha always does a great job with Tommy! Highly recommended!!!
Samantha was great. Drakkina had a great time. We did get updates on how she was doing and we will use her again.
Brought our 80-lb, 9 mos. old lab/Great Dane cross to Samantha for day care. Dixie had the time of her life! It's wonderful to know that instead of sitting in her crate, Dixie is running around and playing with other dogs all day! Samantha obviously loves animals, and she is very accommodating in terms of schedules. Dixie is going to be a long-term guest in Samantha's home!
Samantha has a great way of dealing with animals. She fell in love with my pups at our meet n greet. She is very willing to work within your timeframes.
Very satisfied with the stay! Appeared the dog had a great time.... no issues with her after we picked her up. In fact she was quite tired which is great because she has so much energy. Would definitely consider using Samantha again... thanks!
Our Rusty had a wonderful stay with Samantha.
He definitely felt at home with her. He was safe and warm and didn't have to deal with a noisy kennel experience. We would highly recommend having Samantha giving your dog the personal care she gave to ours.
Samantha was awesome ! On a scale of 1 to 10 I would have to give her a 10 on flexibility, 10 on communication, 10 in just an absolute positive experience for Bella!
Samantha was great and Tommy always has a good time there. Highly recommended!!!
Samantha sent updates and the cats seemed happy when we got home. Definitely planning to use her again in the future.
My dogs had a wonderful time at Samantha's! I had complete confidence that they would be in safe and capable hands. Samantha sent pictures and a video which was a really nice touch as I was missing my babies. I will definitely be a return customer!
We could not have asked for a better host. Samantha kept Sophie active and kept us constantly updated with pics and videos. Communication was very easy. She was very flexible when we ran late picking up our corgi. Highly recommended!
My wife and I were looking for a local pet sitter due to our previous sitter was moving. We had the same person since “Tilly” was a pup. We contacted Samantha and she got back to us promptly and set a meet and greet with us. We knew right away that Samantha was a genuine caring pet sitter. We were pleasantly updated with photos of Tilly when we were away and she looked relaxed and well taken care of. We will definitely request Samantha again with Dog VaCay and would recommend her to others.
Samantha really seemed to care about our dogs Piper and Nova. I got many picture updates and text messages throughout the day which I appreciated. Thanks
Samantha was terrific! Our dog is generally very nervous in new situations, but she was calm and relaxed in Samantha's care. We will definitely re-book the next time we travel.
Samantha took wonderful care of our 2 pugs while we were away on vacation. They were spoiled and happy in our absence. Thank you Samantha for a job well done.
Samantha was great! She came through last minute and did a great job watching our pup.
Samantha was great. I can tell she is a real animal lover :-)
I think that Tommy had a great time with Samantha and her dogs! I highly recommend her!!
