My name is Sam and I have a massive love for animals, especially dogs. The joy they bring me and many others is often unmatched and bring a comfort to one's life beyond comparison.
I currently live in a 1,200 square foot apartment with hardwood floors and rugs/carpeted areas throughout. The apartment is in a four family building with great neighbors, one of whom has two of the sweetest dogs I've ever met, both female. My building has a wooden back deck with stairs leading down to the yard, which is an excellent size for ample dog energy. It's surrounded by a 4-5 foot chain link fence, lots of grass, and a raised garden bed.
I have two cats, Clancy (male) and Pumpernickel (female) who are both around 5 years old. Clancy gets along with everybody while Pumpernickel can be more guarded and keeps to herself around dogs. Both have gotten pretty used to the presence of dogs at this point. I also just adopted a 7-month-old American Bulldog puppy mix and he's very sweet and good with other dogs, if a bit shy. Meet and greets are always welcomed before any bookings but not required.
Any dogs I encounter, watch, and have had are always pampered and well taken care of. Any time spent with me will involve lots of cuddling, walking, playing with toys, being outside and roaming the yard, and copious amounts of petting and scratching.
I do require that any dogs I care for are house-trained, up to date on vaccinations, and spayed/neutered.
For the most part, I am able to provide services with little notice -- though it depends on the service. Ideally, I would prefer longer-term services be requested with at least a couple days notice, but I understand there are certain circumstances that might not permit this and I will try my best to accommodate in whatever way I can.
I work full-time but am off during the day and my off days are on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
If there are any additional questions you have I haven't yet answered, please don't hesitate to get in contact with me!
With me, your dog will get all they need.
*During holidays/the immediate days preceding and following certain holidays, I am available to dog sit, I do charge a higher rate for day sitting, overnight sitting, and home visits due to the busier season, and I hope any past or future clients understand why this is. If not, I would be more than happy to answer any questions.
