About Samantha

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work from home and devote all my time to caring for my pets, including others. All dogs are welcome, even those that might come with a higher level of needs such as elderly with medications or even those with behavioral problems. All care is 100% one on one, ensuring that every dog gets the personalized care that they need and deserve. We live in a 3 bedroom house with a large back yard and room to run!

I stay pretty busy and there are ALWAYS dogs here. So if you are uncomfortable with other dogs being in the house or with your dog being around other dogs, then this might not be the best fit for you. Also keep in mind that even though there are other dogs, your dog is NOT required to get along with every dog here. I don't push dogs together for the sake of being together, and if your dog is too nervous, shy, over excited, or anxious then I can make them more comfortable away from the stress of others. Dogs are always given some time to settle in and adjust before being introduced to another dog. This also gives me some time to judge your dogs character and personality in order to best match them in a group or other dog.

We all have a lot of fun here and I hope to see you and your little fur baby soon!

When coming for a meet and greet, drop off, or pick up. Please park in the driveway or in front of the house. All dogs MUST be leashed when entering and exiting the property.

Drop off and pick up hours for overnight and daycare guests is Mon-Sun 6AM-9PM

***IMPORTANT*** Pick ups for overnight guests on the last day after 1PM will have an additional daycare cost of $15 per dog added to their bill.

Holidays: The Holiday rate is $35 per dog per day. NO discounts are given over Holidays.

For puppies under 1 year of age the nightly rate is $35 and no discounts are given. The Daycare rate for puppies is $25 a day.

If your booking with more than one dog there are discounts available. For a booking with 2 dogs its $50 a night ($10 off). If your booking with 3 dogs its $75 a night ($15 off). This discount does NOT apply toward any stay over a holiday.

I DO NOT OFFER A SMALL DOG DISCOUNT. I do not base my price on the size of the dog but on the quality of care.

There is NO discount for any traveling rate including the nightly rate, checkup rate, dog walking rate, and the pick up/drop off rate.

When dropping off your pet for an overnight stay there are a few things you'll need to bring.

- Enough food for your pet to last the length of the stay
- Any medications
- Collar with tags (including name and number on tags)
- Copy of current vet records

ALL dogs must be current on flea/tick preventative AND have been dewormed in the past 3 weeks before coming for a stay OR be on monthly preventative Heartworm medication. If worms or fleas are found the owner will be required to get appropriate treatment before the pet is allowed to return. If found to have worms, a veterinarian must provide written letter giving clean bill of health and date/results of last fecal test must be provided.

***Important note about collars***
ALL dogs MUST have a collar with tags attached to it. Those tags MUST have an up to date phone number on them. If your dog uses a harness or any other type of removable collar they MUST ALSO have a collar present around their neck at all times, even if tags are present on the harness. Collar must also be properly fitted. If it slides over the dogs head then it must be adjusted. Dogs without tags or collar are to the owners risk. I've never lost a dog or had one escape the yard, hopefully I never will, but the tags and collar make identification easier. I typically take harnesses off when inside or in the yard. So if your dog isn't wearing a collar with tags they have NO identification.

We accept intact dogs at an adjusted rate. Please message me for more info on pricing.


Please read everything above thoroughly. Take note of my refund policy.


**Disclaimer** This is a lot of information. Some people might find it a bit much, however if you care about your dog(s) as much as I care about mine, then you understand the necessity of it all. All information is in place to help you, prepare you for their stay, and keep your dogs safe and comfortable while here.

Samantha is always very flexible when working with me and Ransom has a great time with her!
appreciate her care for our dog..we were a repeat customer!
We needed a vacation home for Bear the very last minute. Samantha not only answered our midnight request within 20 minutes, but was gracious about it too! Bear had a great week, and truly got away from his boring city living he normally leads.
