fur babies

Sam has been our petsitter for several years and we are thrilled with the care that she provides to our fur babies. I never worry about them when we are away as I know that they are in very capable hands. They love Sam as much as we do

Lincoln Puppy

Sam is amazing! She not only helped me find my puppy to adopt but she is also so flexible and really tries to accommodate the needs of my pup into her schedule. I feel so comfortable leaving my puppy with her! (& her sweet dog Gemma, who plays great with Lincoln!) She truly loves animals and what she does! She's always my first choice! Would recommend her to anyone!!

Jetty + Titan

For more then 3 years now, Sam has been taking care of our two German Shepherds, Jetty and Titan, when the family is away from home. The attention and care she provides is outstanding and our dogs love her. She is compassionate, dependable and stays in constant communication with us through texts and pictures regrading both her daily schedule, as well as regarding how and what the dogs are doing. We always leave knowing that we will come home to happy, healthy, well-cared for, and tired dog. It gives the family peace of mind to know that our pets (and our house) are well taken care of while we are away.

Amari + Maya

We have known Sam for about 2 years now. She watches our 2 dogs Amari and Maya. Amari is a pure bred Boerboel and Maya is a pit mix. Maya and Amari can certainly be a handful, but Sam has done an amazing job with them. Amari is a big boy at 150lbs and Maya is a little girl at 40Lbs so Sam can handle any size. We always come home from trips and the house is always just the way we left it and the dogs are happy. Amari can be very territorial, but Sam has the expertise to handle him. Maya is a bundle of energy, but Sam has the same amount of energy to keep up with her. I would recommend Sam to anyone who has dogs or any kind of animal. Her attention and dedication to our dogs has made me comfortable leaving them in her hands for any amount of time short or long. Thank you Sam and the pups can’t wait to see you again.

"I have known Sam for 2 years. She has watched my dog, Bibby, and also house sit for me. She takes Bibby to the park, walks him, plays with him and truly loves him. I have complete confidence and trust in her. We text and call when she is watching him. She also sends me pictures of the fun she is having with Bibby when she takes him out. Bibby loves to see her walk through the door. When Bibby was missing for 9 days, Sam checked in everyday on me and him. Sam is true, honest, sincere, sweet, smart and can make a great future for herself in the pet sitting business. LOVE HER!"

Andy's Cats

"I'd like to take a moment to thank your for all the help you have done in the past one and a half years. I look forward to your services this year. You have been very dependable and highly recommended.

I have three cats which Sam feeds twice a day. One requires special food twice daily. She changes the litter once a day and provides necessary medication to one cat once a day.

It's nice to know there is a pet sitting service which provides the love and compassion my animals need when I'm not available, in which Sam is part of. It's reassuring to know she cares enough to provide updates during the day – which shows loyalty and that gives that extra step of care."

- Andy H., East Granby

Taylor the Beagle

"Sam has watched my two-year-old Beagle, Taylor, for over a year now. Sam has always been able to care for Taylor, feed her, walk her, and take her to the dog park while I am away. Taylor loves Sam and is a willing participant going with Sam.

While away Sam sends me regular texts about Taylor and pictures of Taylor. Sam is always positive and is great for the animal. Her even temperament allows for my dog to feel comfortable.

I would recommend Same to anyone who is looking for a responsible person who loves animals to care for their pet while they are away. I would much rather have Taylor at home while I am away than board her at a kennel. Sam allows me to do this without worry."
