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.
****As of 3/01: Unfortunately, I will only be able to take booking for the current month of March 2017 for the foreseeable future. I will be moving out of the country for a year, starting at the beginning of April. I apologize for any inconvenience, and hope you will not hesitate to contact me if you need any dog-sitting for the month of March. Thank you!****
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.
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.
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.
