About Sam

Hi! I'm Sam, I've been studying to be a social worker for the past few years but now decided to pursue a career in animal welfare and care. This is where my true passion lays and always has.

I love working and caring for animals as it comes naturally to me. I have a kind and gentle personality and I don't get flustered, frustrated or angry easily which is great when working with your furry friends. I am a calm and patient individual looking to gain more formal experience working with animals to kick start my career.

I've been around animals my whole life, from dogs (Akitas), fish, a variety of rodents (hamsters and gerbils) and a few cats! My parents were animal lovers, so I was surrounded growing up, always fostering from shelters. I have the knowledge and skills form large dogs to tiny kittens, fast little hamsters to mischievous gerbils. Now, I need formal experience to build my portfolio.

I am a reliable and keen person who will provide the best care to your pets, whether that’s an hour-long tummy rub while you’re at work, a long walk or playing fetch, a short visit to make sure they're okay or an overnight stay to have my full attention. I am happy to work around schedules and pricings as I want you to be as comfortable as possible and your pets to have the best care.

I live with my partner just around from Kelvingrove Park, Yorkhill Park and we have a large fenced shared private garden used by other dog owners in the complex. Send over a message and we can work something out, it's best to book as far in advance as you can as I pick work shifts around my bookings but I can still work around short notices!

I look forward to hearing from you and your furry friends! Sam xo

Sam was great with Kyra, they hit it off right away. Sam kept us updated nearly every day with photos and videos of what they were getting up to and Kyra clearly had a lovely holiday. I wouldn't hesitate taking Kyra back to Sam, in fact we're doing just that in 4 weeks but only for 5 days this time. I'd highly recommend Sam for your fur babies' holidays.

Sam is a fantastic dog sitter. She is always quick to respond to messages and is incredibly friendly. Her flat and surrounding area are lovely - with a selection of toys in her home to satisfy any pooch and a large secure garden for them to run around in. All round, I was incredibly impressed with her service and will absolutely be sure to be calling on her again to look after Jarrow.

Specific Skills

Familiar with dog training techniques
Can take care of exotic animals

I have recently started volunteering at dog days Glasgow - A doggy daycare in the west end that cares for up to 60 dogs at a time. I assist with the running of the group but my main duty is to make sure all the dogs get the best quality of care and give attention to each and every one of them!

I often dog walk or dog sit for friends and family. I have experience with dog boarding and have received great reviews previous. One of my hobbies is photography so if I often snap a few photos when, so I can send snaps of your furry friend if you want an update on how they're doing!
