About Sam

Hello! Sam here, I'm a dog walker/sitter with 10+ years experience, having lived with dogs of all varieties for most of my life.

I was a baby when the Labrador down the road decided it liked spending more time with our family than the owners, so we adopted him. His name was Sam too, clearly we were meant for each other. As a teenager my Dad trusted me to train and take care of Flynn, a rather quiet German Shepard. More recently my partner and I adopted a beautiful border collie, unfortunately she had epilepsy and so required a lot of care, but she was absolutely worth every second of it.

I've also helped many other people when they needed someone to look after their pets. This includes dogs of all ages, sizes, and personalities—a giant doberman, a lazy greyhound, an excited border collie, a shy terrier, and many others.

As I'm currently a freelancer that works from home, my schedule is easily flexible and can be shaped to fit whatever your requirements are. Morning, days, and nights are all available. Every pet is different and I'm happy to cater to their unique needs and maintain their routines. I can go for long walks, lavish them with attention, feed them at the right times, clean up after them, and give them any required medications.

More information on the services I can offer:

  • House Sitting—I focus on this as I work from home and will have plenty of time to spend with your pets and look after your home. I can also go anywhere accessible via public transport, but for shorter stays (less than 3 days) may ask for help covering the travel costs.
  • Dog Walks & Drop-ins—Because house sitting takes me all over the place I can't offer regular walks, but short-term requests are possible in the Linlithgow area when I’m home. I’ll keep the calendar up to date with my availability, feel free to get in touch with any questions or specific requests!

    We recently had a weekend away - the first time we were leaving our dog since adopting him. Sam was the perfect sitter to look after our greyhound. Sam and our dog got on really well, and Sam took excellent care of both our dog and our home. Next time we go away, we'll definitely be looking to book Sam again.
