Hi, I’m Sam. I’m a lifelong dog owner and animal lover.
Thanks for looking at my profile, I would love to help look after your pets!
- Boarding your pet in my home overnight
- Day care
- Dog walks
- Drop in visits to your pet while you are out
To make sure we are both comfortable with the booking I prefer the following conditions:
- Your dog must be sociable and able to get along with my dog Willow and others if I am walking it.
- I like to arrange a meet up in a neutral place where possible so that we, and our pets, can meet before we finalise the booking.
- I can only consider pick up/drop off for existing customers who I have met already.
If you would like to consider my services further please message and let me know exactly what you are looking for including dates/times and a brief description of your pet. Please feel free to send me your phone number if it’s easier to chat over the phone!
Here’s some more detail about me:
My little Patterdale Terrier Willow is a sociable dog and I want to walk and look after other people’s pets so that she can enjoy the experience too. She regularly attended doggy daycare for years and even had her own litter of pups so she’s great with dogs of all shapes and sizes.
Now that I am part-time in my role as an NHS professional I have time and space to care for other people’s pets. Willow has always had some form of pet care, from attending daycare to home visits, so I can honestly relate to people who just want to know that their dog is okay while they’re busy and can’t be there to look after them.
It's just me, Willow and my husband Adam at home it’s nice and quiet, giving a calm environment for your dog, and we have a garden for them to exercise. We also live close to the canal and local areas of nature so I will take your dog on nice walks when they stay with me.
Wow. What can I say about Sam. She is a fantastic person and having met her prior to our booking for a pre visit knew she was the one to come to our home twice a day to look after my 2 girls who I have always put in a cattery before. Nothing too much trouble. I got sent messages and photos/videos on a regular basis and to see how happy they both were in their own home made.me realise I had made the correct choice for them as well as for us. You can tell on meeting that she is an animal lover and this comes across in her interactions with the girls. I wouldn't hesitate to book her when we next go away and would thoroughly recommend her.
Sam is fantastic. She treated my three girls like they were her own. Great communication and her passion for what she does is obvious. Sam was flexible and adaptable to what we needed and nothing was too much trouble. Sam also administered meds to our elderly dog which I know a lot of other minders wouldn’t of wanted to. Felt completely at ease being away knowing they were with her and we got gorgeous pics as updates throughout the day. Couldn’t be happier with her service and wouldn’t hesitate to ask her to mind them again in the future. Can’t recommend Sam highly enough x
I have been regularly dog sitting for a couple of years now and have experience with other people’s pets.
