About Samantha

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been caring for dogs in my home for about 10 years now and I have lots of experience with all types of dogs. I own a single family home in the Avondale neighborhood ( Belmont/Elston) with three levels and fenced in back and front yards, however the dogs I care for are usually walked 2-3 times daily and allowed in the yard for supervised play. This is my full-time profession, so I am home much of the day with the dogs and they are usually not left alone for more than 3-4 hours at a time. They have free run of the home when I am home and I try to keep it as close to their home routine as possible. They are allowed on the furniture and in bed, if that's what they are accustomed to at home,I make snuggle time a priority for the dogs! I pride myself on offering the dogs I care for with an environment that is designed to be as stress-free and nurturing as possible.
I purchased this home specifically for the dogs, so it is very cozy, cheerful and dog friendly! I generally have care for 3-6 dogs at any given time, so all I ask is that your dog is dog friendly or at least tolerant of other dogs.I do have enough room in the home though to separate larger dogs from smaller ones, or older ones from the younger more enthusiastic ones if need be for short periods. Your dog(s) must be current with vaccinations, flea preventative and spayed/neutered as well.
My rates are $40.00 per day for one dog or $70 for two. I also provide daycare for dogs Mon-Thurs from ~10am-4pm for $25 with pick up/drop off to most neighborhoods on the north side of Chicago. I can provide plenty of references upon request. My drop off and pick up hours are generally by appointment between 8 am and 8pm, but I can be flexible with advanced notice.

Samantha was wonderful with Breslin. He is usually very timid and nervous around new people, but Samantha made him feel extremely comfortable and right at home with plenty of dog beds (so convenient) and toys My favorite part about his stay was getting picture updates throughout his time there. Samantha also made me feel very comfortable contacting her whenever I wanted to check in and never made me feel like I was bothering her at all. I would recommend her to anyone!!

Samantha was wonderful!! She was friendly and responded quickly, and sent pictures so I could see how well the dogs were doing. I'd be glad to have my girls stay with her again.
