30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Samantha and I have 25 years experience with special needs animals and care. I have my own poodle-Italian greyhound mix with inoperable liver disease, in other words he needs medicine syringed 3 times daily, and 2 pills daily am/pm. I also have a 30 year old cockatiel with special needs:) I am a writing working from home so your baby will get all day care from me. I truely adore animals and have my whole life.

I do want to let you know also I can give shots (experience with diabetic dogs-cats) pills (experience with thyroid issue pets, urinary problems, bladder stones, deaf, blind, wounded,etc etc) Senior pets with diapers- no problem, we all get old right?
I also can do AERODAWG Canine Aerosol Chamber with FLO-Vu IFI with Chamber Mask for ashma, bronchitis, breathing problems etc. Albuterol Sulfate (proair HFR) and Flovent HFA

I require a Meet-n-Greet before accepting a first-time booking.

Samantha was a great host. She is very sweet and you can tell that she is an animal lover. We had a 7 month old puppy we left with her for a weekend. She sent us videos of him so we felt like we could check in and was very communicative. He seemed to have a blast and when we picked him up he was much happier than the time we had left him at one of those larger boarding houses. We never had any doubts that our little man was in good hands and getting the attention and affection that young pups need. I would highly recommend her if you needed to board your pet.

Samantha was great! My biggest concern with anyone watching my dog is his insulin shots. He gave her a hard time at first so she took him to a vet so he wouldn't a shot. He eventually warmed up and she was able to do the shots herself, but it meant a lot that she was willing to go the extra mile so he wouldn't miss a dose. She sent tons of pictures and was super sweet and loving. I definitely felt very comfortable with her in my home and around my pets. Would reccommend her for anyone who has a special needs dog!
