About Samantha

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Being raised on a small milking farm in England, I've looked after all sorts of animals, from pigs, cows, chickens, and horses. I was in charge of feeding the chickens and collecting the eggs, milking the cows before school and herding them in the evening. My favorite was looking after the piglets when the sows gave birth, making sure they were all getting fed, including the runts. Having grown up with many dogs all my life, I've had my own little fluffy guy since I was 16. I've had Shrimps now for two and a half years. We love to go hiking; I have a car here in the city so we take every opportunity we can to get out and explore where we can both stretch our legs. I work from home so am available pretty much all day. If I have to run errands, I wont be out for more than a two hours at any time. My fiancé and I are the only ones who live here. We live in a non-smoking two story apartment with a pretty decent roof terrace guarded by a four and a half foot wall. We let Shrimps free to roam the house when we leave, and will happily do the same for your kid, if you so wish. otherwise, we have a baby gate that we can maneuver to suit your and your dog's needs. We also love to snuggle on the couch, and go and meet the neighbors to play fetch in the yards. Shrimps and I are happy to do as much or as little as your pup requires. We are LGBTQ friendly.

Sam and her fiancee live in a beautiful and spacious apartment in Williamsburg. Their building is located on a very quiet street with 4 different parks all within walking distance. Their sweet and friendly dog, Shrimps, is used to living with other dogs of all sizes including toy size dogs. Their apartment has large windows with lots of light and an outdoor terrace where your pup can hang out with Sam and Shrimps and enjoy fresh air and sunlight.
Sam works from home so your dog will have company throughout the day. She is also quite active and loves the outdoors so your pup can enjoy plenty of activity.
Arrange a meet and greet with Sam so you'll experience her love of dogs and her great care.

Sam was a life saver. At last minute, we had no one to take care of our dog Ace and she saved the day. Always great to get a picture update on how he was doing and knowing he was in good hands. Thanks again.
Samantha took good care of Tara! She sent me photos of my dog enjoying her vacay, and was quick to respond to my questions. I'd recommend her to anyone.
Sam is great! My English Bulldog Lola clearly loved her stay and is now officially best friends with Shrimps (Sam's poodle). Sam was super flexible with dropoff/pickup times and communicative throughout - the frequent photos/updates were very much appreciated. I'd absolutely recommend Sam to anyone. I'm hoping she'll be available the next time I need a dogsitter. Thanks again!
