About Sam

Hello!

My name is Sam and I'm an animal lover based in Leith! I'm a very experienced pet sitter, dog walker, and more. I'm a Canadian who has lived in Edinburgh for almost 5 years now and loving every bit of it! I am married to a Scot, and stay in a two bed flat down at the shore. We share our flat with our two lovely guinea pigs, Tonks & Minerva, and an aquarium full of beautiful fish. I grew up in rural British Columbia, where we always had a house full of pets, and still do! From goats to chinchillas, I'm happy & experienced to pet sit every kind of critter you may have!

I'm very experienced with pet sitting cats, dogs, rabbits and rodents! Guinea pigs and chinchillas being my rodent specialties. But I love all pets! of any breed or size. I have also had experience with many different needs, temperments, and medical conditions. I'm happy to take your dog for walks in the park or have a mouse around with your cat! I do freelance work from home, so I'm very flexiable on times and days. If you have any questions or want to know more about my pet sitting experiences, please feel free to send me a message and I'll get back to you right away.

I also offer drop off & pick up when pet boarding!

Hope to hear from you soon! :)

Sam is the perfect sitter! She looked after Nuggle with the greatest of care. Sent pictures every day and he was having a great time in all of them! Super lovely, will definitely use again not least as Nugs has a new best friend :)
