About Samantha

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Pet sitting services available in your home by former professional pet caretaker! I also provide dog walking services based on availability.

I relocated here to the Fort Collins area a little over a year ago from the Washington D.C. and Alexandria, VA area, where I owned and operated a successful pet care and dog training business for three years. I currently work full-time an an executive administrative assistant at an energy/renewables technology organization in Old Town Fort Collins and want to continue caring for pets in my spare time.

My experience ranges from dogs, cats, reptiles, birds and rabbits. I have extensive experience with a wide range of dog breeds and have provided behavioral training on a case-by-case basis.

If you would like more information and to see all of the positive reviews I have received, please check out Ruffs & Relaxation Dog Walking and Pet Care on Yelp and Facebook. Your pet's well-being is extremely important to me and you need to be comfortable with the person you choose to watch your pet!

Please connect with me for more details. I look forward to taking care of your babies!

I left Jack at Samantha's for 2 weeks, everything is fine when we picked him up.
The rate is reasonable and we received text and Jack's pictures for updates during our vacation, which is a very nice thing.

If we need future sitter or boarding updates during our vacation, which is a very nice thing.

If we need future sitter or boarding for Jack, we will think Samantha's as our first choice.

Our dog Roxy had a lovely stay, she seemed happy and relaxed when she came home. We received updates over the Roxy had a lovely stay, she seemed happy and relaxed when she came home.

As a newbie to DogVacay, we were a little wary about leaving our 2/12 yr. old Labradoodle, Norma Jeane. We carefully browsed the sites and decided to give Samantha and Loren a try. At a very comfortable "meet and greet" NJ and I met our hosts and to give Samantha and Loren a try. At a very comfortable "meet and greet" NJ and I met our hosts and co hosts, Olivia and Reina, the resident pups. All seemed to go well, so 4 days later, NJ began her 5 day stay. When we all regrouped back home, my husband and I thought that NJ looked great, tired, from great walks, and play times, but not at all stressed or over -stimulated. We would recommend Samantha and Loren to all seekers, and look forward to rebooking!
