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. We share our flat with our three lovely guinea pigs, Tonks, Luna, & Mini, 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 flexible 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.
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 also offer local drop off & pick up with my home boarding service!
Hope to hear from you soon!
The cats loved Sam and she was a brilliant sitter. Would definitely book her again
Sam looked after our two rabbits extremely well whilst we were on holiday. She was very diligent, reliable, patient and thorough. She is clearly passionate about animals and she really cared for our rabbits, giving them lots of attention as well as all of the changing, cleaning etc. They obviously loved her in a short space of time. She was knowledgable and experienced so we felt very safe leaving them in her care. Her communication was excellent and she sent us lots of pictures to keep the children happy. I would highly recommend Sam.
