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 unpaid parking near your home, I might ask just for a small amount more to be able to park during home visit bookings!
I also offer local drop off & pick up with my home boarding service!
Hope to hear from you soon!
Sam has been looking after my golden retriever for a couple of years through doggy day care. Sam has been so communicative and goes above and beyond looking after my pup! On one instance, my dog had a bit of an upset tummy while Sam had been watching her, and Sam was so communicative and looked after her so well - which I so appreciated that I could trust her care! I appreciate the regular updates and photos, and flexibility with booking. Will be booking more regular days in the future.
Sam is a wonderful pet sitter and I am very glad she was the one who looked after my pets. She clearly cares and is passionate about animals, it is very obvious she takes her role seriously. Communication was excellent, I particularly enjoyed getting messages and photo updates of how my pets were doing. I would happily let Sam look after any of my pets again in the future.
