About Samantha

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there. My name is Sam and I am an avid animal lover with a few pets of my own. In 2012, I received my CVA (Certified Veterinary Assistant). My tiny humans (daughter & baby boy) and my 3 dogs are my priority and I would be happy to add your pup to my list of priorities as well. I'm sure your pup will enjoy running in the yard or staying in the "Dog Room" I have in the house with some playmates to keep them feeling comfortable.

During the hot months, I fill up the plastic "puppy pool" for some outside fun. Otherwise we all stay inside with the air on, where it's much nicer and refreshing for everyone. I keep water handy at all times in a few different spots and always make sure to feed everyone separate.

I keep plenty of toys on hand, (thanks to Barkbox! - Use my link for 1 FREE Box - https://barkbox.com/r/4THEPUPS), so all I usually need you to bring is your pup, their food and bed/blanket are optional. If you would like to bring a crate, check with me first, as I may have your pup's size available to use. (The bigger ones can be a pain to lug around!)

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask . I look forward to meeting you and your furbaby soon!
Follow my new Instagram account, sams_stay_n_play for picture updates of my 2 pups and even yours as well! (If you don't have instagram, don't worry, I usually send text pictures/updates)

***Note*** I just had my second (human) baby mid Aug, so I have been keeping the number of new guest dogs I watch to a lower maximum. Please feel free to email me to check availability. While my calendar may say booked, I may be able to make an exception for some (especially repeat guests). Thank you for your business :)

Samantha is excellent... my puppy seemed happy the whole time. Samantha would update me and send pictures of how he was doing. I already have plans to pre-book for the near future... thank you Samantha keep up the great work...!!!!
Repeat customer and as always leave my pup with her when I travel for work. Samantha is awesome and updates me with pictures of my dog. This is the only place I trust to leave my dog. 10/10
Samantha is amazing, home is amazing and my pup is always happy staying there!
Samantha was great and her house is PERFECT for dog sitting. She sent picture updates as well so we were able to see Lola while we were away.
Samantha and her family were awesome and Gunner had a great time!
Samantha was great! I had complete trust in her from the moment we connected and met. She and her little daughter treated Keola with such respect. I knew then Keola was in good hands. While I was away, Samantha made sure to keep me updated on Keola's progress and how he was doing with the other dogs. I am glad to have found someone that I can trust and continue to use to watch over my dog. Thank you so much, Samantha. Looking forward to the next visit.

Samantha is awesome - she is so friendly and easy to work with, very flexible on pickup/drop off times, and sent updates with pictures of my very happy dogs playing in her backyard. She has a great setup for the dogs, and mine came back very happy and tired! Will definitely be using her again and highly recommend.

I wanted to thank Sam for taking great care of my two German Shepards. This was my 2nd overnight stay booked with Sam and both times they came back exhausted after playing with her pets. The 2nd time was a 5 night visit. Sam accomodated my early flight time and sent me great photos of my pets enjoying thier stay. Thanks a million Sam and we will be using you again.

Dropped my 2 dogs off with Sam for the weekend and came back to happy, tired pups. Sam was great and sent picture updates throughout the weekend.
Bubba had SO much fun at Ms. Samantha's. I am always really hesitant about leaving Bubba in the care of another person, but he loved Miss Samantha and her dogs. Bubba stayed with Ms. Samantha for 6 days, and she always sent pictures of him, whether he was lounging around or outside playing. Her house & yard were wonderful & well kept. She is also super flexible with drop off & pick up times. Thanks you!

Samantha was a fantastic host, and we felt really comfortable leaving our pup in her capable hands. We knew Scout had other big dogs to play with, and even though we were overseas, Samantha sent us photos both via email and DogVacay, so we could access them no matter where we were. Scout seemed happy when we picked her up 15 nights later, and we were so thankful that Sam was available to care for our fur baby so well. We knew she'd have toys to play with, a comfortable home, plenty of outside time, dogs to play with, etc. Thank you thank you THANK YOU!

Sam is great. I've been bringing my pup to her place for about a year now and have nothing but great things to say.
Our furry family member had the best time with Sam and her family. She was such a happy pup when we picked her up. We will definitely be using her in the future!
First time trying the dogvacay really liked it, awesome family that you can rely on while you are on your mini, vacation. I'am defiantly going back to her when needed.
We had the BEST experience with Samantha right from the start! Our puppy was so happy in the pictures we received and when he got home he was worn out! We know that he played hard and made lots of friends,that is what we wanted for him.
We also feel that he learned some things from his older playmates and came home a bit changed, a bit more mature. Overall a very positive experience for our sweet pup! Thank you Samantha!

Dal loved his stay!
a little late review sorry! Samantha was an amazing host my pup loved her dogs, I had to pull her away when picking her up. Samantha also updated me with pictures while I was away too! Thanks again samantha!
Super easy to schedule! My dog was happy and tired when he got home, just what I wanted!
Sam was awesome taking care of Lola. It was a long trip so we were a little worried but she texted and emailed pics and updates. We are very happy and pleased.
I absolutely love when my dog stays with Sam! She send me pictures of my Charlie and when I pick her up she's always tired from having so much fun playing with her dogs! Thanks Sam! We'll definitely be coming back!!
Finn had a great stay with Sam! Sam's Huskies were there as well as two other dogs. She sent me pictures of them all playing in her large backyard and it looked like Finn was having a great time! (Plus he slept for the next 24 hours straight so that confirms it!!)

Joel had a great time staying at Samantha's over the holidays. At no point was I worried about his well being. She sent pictures of him playing in the yard with the other dogs and posing in front of their Christmas tree. Since we couldn't be with him for his first Christmas, that picture meant the world to us! Thanks Samantha!

I feel at peace leaving Bonni in Samantha's care! I know she is loved and cared for, and has a great time hanging out with her furry friends at Sam's Stay-n-Play. Samantha is professional, reliable, and accommodating. I am glad I found her and her furry family for my baby!

My dog, Kevin loved Samantha and her family! Samantha was super easy to communicate with and sent a ton of texts/pictures while I was away. I will definitely use Samantha again.
Sam and Luis were once again Great with Ash, flexible with pick up and drop of, Excellent Dog Vacay!
This was our first Dog Vacay experience, and we were very happy! Sam accommodated our last-minute request (the day before) and was very flexible with our drop-off/pick-up times. She was also helpful with an issue that we had (our dog still had stitches from being fixed less than a week before). Thanks so much to Sam and her husband for taking good care of our dog!

Sam and her pups were amazing with Ash, flexible with reservation In a tight spot, as well as dropoff and pickup. She went way above and beyond when this bad daddy ran short on kibble. Only down side is that our only firboy is a bit lonely now after having some quality time with his Husky buds!! Got plenty of pics as well and felt completely comfortable leaving our boy for his first time...Perfect DogVacay!

Sam was wonderful with my two dachshunds! She sent updates on the girls and was so easy to work with for scheduling. I felt 100% comfortable that my dogs were having a great stay and were in very capable hands. Both dogs came home happy and clearly worn out from an exciting weekend. We will absolutely use Sam again when we need a dog sitter!

Our dog loved staying with Sam! She provided regular updates and photos while we were away. Their house is set up well for dogs with areas both inside and outside. We were very happy with how well Veda was taken care of. We will definitely be using Sam's Stay-n-Play again!

Sam was great, easy to work with, and clearly keeps a close eye on all the dogs. Their house and yard are set up really well for dogs to both play and rest.
Denali's stay with Sam was... in a word... Pawsome! We got regular updates and photos from Sam, and communication was easy. Even when Denali had to seen for a medical treatment, Sam took care of her and kept us in the loop. Thanks Sam! We'll definitely be seeing you again!

Samantha is awesome! She's incredibly knowledgable about dogs and we felt so at ease leaving our dog while on vacation. Our bloodhound felt right at home and even came home with a holiday package! We're so glad to have this option that we feel like our dog is cared for.
Thanks again!
