About Samantha & Sarah

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are two gals who love our pups and would love to care for yours while you are away. We live in a lovely neighborhood right off of the bike path, so your pup will be sure to get plenty of walks in during their stay! We also have a large, safe, and secure, back-yard with a new 6 foot privacy fence where your pup will be able to run around and have tons of fun throughout the day!

I work from home, so there will be someone around at all times for your pet! I have two 15 minute breaks during the day that allow us to go out back to play & run around and a one hour lunch break that always consists of a nice 2 mile walk on the bike path. My wife, Sarah, is a teacher and is around all day during the summer months, winter breaks & spring breaks, so your pup will get even more attention! Sarah also loves to take our guest pups on nice long runs :-)

We have two energetic dogs; Kinnick and Dexter. Kinnick is a 5 year-old, black lab mix and Dexter is a 5 year-old cockapoo. They are both always very excited to meet new friends!

Sam and Sarah are simply AMAZING. Our dog has major anxiety and also has some medical issues, we have never had him stay with anyone else besides my mother. Since she was going to be on the trip with us this time, we decided to use Sam and Sarah. Every time I would start to worry or miss him, I would get a photo from Sam, in these photos our doggie was having the time of his life, he was running, getting spoiled, and even napping with his other new furry friends. I think it is so sweet that they cover the doggies up in blankets. I have a feeling that our dog will be having withdrawals from Sam and Sarah’s house and want to go back because he was spoiled rotten the whole week he was at their home. I was able to enjoy our trip and not worry about if he was being taken care of or if he was having major anxiety because I could tell every day that he was perfectly fine! I would highly recommend using Sam and Sarah to take care of your pup on your next vacation, weekend getaway, or day trip!

Thank you again for taking such great care for our Wrigley!!!!

Our pup had such a great time! He got plenty of exercise and love. We appreciate Sarah and Sam taking care of him as if he were their own.
Sam and Sarah are THE BEST! It is an amazing feeling to know that my puppy is in the best care, while I'm away at work!
We know our dog and when she is happy and she let us know after her visit that she was very happy at Samantha and Sarah's home.
Loved all the pics I received while I was gone. My dog enjoyed having other dogs to play with and made herself at home. Big spacious yard for the pups to run around in. Samantha and Sarah are wonderful and were very flexible when our schedule changed. We will definitely use their services in the future.

Sara and Samantha did an awesome job taking care of our Jake. All the pictures and updates made us feel very assuring that Jake was really having a great vacay. They treated him as their own. Ron K.
Our first stay with Samantha and Sarah was great. I loved the updated pictures and the fact that they went on so many walks and play times was awesome! We got back a very wiped out pup!
Lupe had a great time & I was very comfortable leaving her! Thanks-see u soon.
This was the second time we boarded our dog with Samantha and Sarah and we couldn't be happier with how great both experiences have been! They're easy to coordinate with and take great care of our dog including lots of walks and active time.
Our dog, Teeka, had a "pawsome" time on her vacay with Samantha and Sarah. She is a high energy dog so the two long walks daily was perfect for her. They also have a nice fenced in area where she could play safely. Teeka was given free roam of their house and lots of attention! We enjoyed getting daily photos and updates which helped us while we were missing her. We highly recommend Sam & Sarah the next time you have to leave your pet. We know we will have no problem getting Teeka to go back there the next time!!

Our Mia has never spent any time away from us and when we had the opportunity to go on vacation we were struggling about who would take care of her. After doing some online research we found Samantha and Sarah. Mia recently had a "sleep over" to see how she would do with them, Dexter and Kinnick and we were very pleasantly surprised at how well she did. Samantha and Sarah sent multiple pictures of Mia in her new environment and we were assured that she was happy and well taken care of. We feel very confident that Mia will be loved and well taken care of when we go on our vacation.

We felt so much better leaving our Hazel with these two lovely ladies!! So much better than a kennel. You could tell they were true dog lovers!!
It was a very big deal for us to leave Lulu for almost a month but Samantha & Sarah were wonderful surrogates. Lulu got plenty of exercise and seemed to enjoy hanging out with her new friends.
Our 21/2 year old Miniature Schnauzer, Heidi, was seen with her full face in the window beside the front door as we pulled away. We felt sad and sorry for her. Later, after arriving in Chicago and settling into our hotel we received several photos of Heidi hanging comfortably with the two resident dogs. She had a great time. We received several updates of photos during our absence and each made us laugh as in one photo she was standing up on the sofa looking out the window, squirrel watching, one of her favorite pastimes. We usually board Heidi at a kennel however she received more personal attention here from Samantha and Sarah, obvious dog lovers, and was not caged. She loved it.

Benji had an amazing stay with Samantha and Sarah. He made new new friends and the girls treated like one of their own. They let him cuddle with them and their puppies, took him on long walks and play time outside. They sent us updates everyday including pictures of his experiences which completely put us at ease and reduced our guilt for not taking him on vacation with us. We were very happy with their care.

Sarah and Samantha were Pawsitively awesome! They did such a great job making our 10 month old Labradoodle a part of their family, I was afraid he might not want to come home!! Kept us updated with tons of photos from his vacation as well.

It was a great experience for us as well as our pup!! :) Thank you Sarah and Samantha!

Our dog, Joe, had a great time at Samantha and Sarah's house! They kept us updated with pictures of all the fun he was having, from watching football to taking long walks. It's a wonder he even wanted to come home! Highly recommend!
I knew right from the start that my dog would have an Awesome time while we were away! You can tell that Sam & Sarah love animals! They have a wonderful home with a secure & safe backyard. They live right by a walking trail and even took my dog jogging! They sent me daily pictures & comments which reassured me that my dog was having a good time while we were away! I know my dog, Hawkeye, will miss his two new best friends, Kinnick & Dexter! We will definitely be using Sam & Sarah again thru Dog Vacay! 100% Happy!
