About Sam

Hello!

My name is Sam and I'm an animal lover based in Edinburgh! I'm a very experienced pet sitter, dog walker, and more. I'm a Canadian who has lived in Scotland for almost 7 years now and loving every bit of it! I am married to a Scot, and stay in a two bed flat near Cramond Beach with a fence secured back garden and a fenced communal garden just outside ours. We share our flat with our three lovely guinea pigs, Tonks, Luna, & Mini. 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'm quite flexible on times and days that I’m available. I board guinea pigs and some dogs. All guests sleep in our guest room either on our bed or their own that’s brought. I also have a c&c grid cage for boarding guinea pigs. For my home visits, I stay 30min to an hour depending on what’s needed. 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.

IMPORTANT INFO: My three guinea pigs are in a lifted enclosure with no roof. So unfortunately I can’t board any dog that has a prey drive.

EXTRA INFO: If there’s no free parking near your home, I might ask for an amount to be added to cover it during home visit bookings.

I offer guinea pig boarding in a C&C grid enclosure! I almost always have that available, so please message me even if my calendar doesn't originally show the dates. £20 a night for either a duo or trio of pigs. Includes all bedding, hay, & fresh veg!

I also offer local drop off & pick up with my home boarding service!

Hope to hear from you soon!

Sam was an absolute delight! She's experienced and knowledgeable with small animals, and gave us peace of mind that our rats, hamsters, and guinea pigs would be in good hands while we went on holiday. Sam was also great at providing a bit of extra care to one of our elderly ratties, and was very communicative with each visit!

Sam has been looking after our animals for a couple of years now and i honestly don’t think you could find someone who loves and cares for your pets as much as her. We have just been in holiday for over 2 weeks and arrived back to 3 happy Guineapigs in an immaculate enclosure! She provided lovely daily updates and washed their bedding for our return. At a small extra charge she also trimmed their nails and hair so they certainly looked smarter than us coming back from holiday! In the past few months she has also taken our dog for a few daily walks if we have needed any last minute care. You can be sure she will do a grand job 🤗 thank you Sam!
