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 6 years now and loving every bit of it! I am married to a Scot, and stay in a two bed flat near Cramond Beach. We share our flat with our three lovely guinea pigs, Tonks, Luna, & 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.

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.

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

UPDATE: I’ll be moving to Marine Drive at the end of January, 2020. Close to the beach & a bigger and better place to have critters :)

Hope to hear from you soon!

Sam did an excellent job of looking after our two guinea pigs on short notice when we'd booked a few days to go away. They were very well looked after during their stay and we received regular updates about them every morning of their stay. I'd highly recommend her as a petsitter with guinea pig expertise (in particular)!

Excellent choice Sam communicated promptly. Home was modern , clean , close to the expanse of Cramond. I’ve used kennels before but I wonder why anyone does to be honest. Your pet / family member stays in a similar environment as there home and therefore less stressed.
