Sam was wonderful with both my dogs, she has great knowledge of dog behaviour and was very understanding of Leo’s anxiety. I felt completely comfortable leaving them in her care.

Sam was fantastic, she absolutely spoiled Daisy and provided us with regular updates and peace of mind that Daisy was being loved and cared for while we were away. We would absolutely use Sam again as a dog sitter.

Sam is wonderfully caring, gentle, experienced and professional. She took fantastic care of our 6-month-old puppy Brody. It was the first time we had left him with anyone besides family, yet he settled in very quickly. He had the best time playing and going for walks with their very patient and gentle dog Sophie. We received photos throughout the day to see what our little pup had been up to. Brody came home very tired, very happy and very well cared for. I highly recommend Sam and will certainly be contacting her the next time we go away again.

Our regular sitter had unexpected circumstances which meant our booking had to be cancelled. We contacted Sam, who responded quickly and was able to provide daycare at short notice. Sam was amazing, she went above and beyond, sending updates and taking Wookie for walks during the day. She genuinely cares about the animals that she looks after and treats them like her own. We would absolutely recommend Sam to anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy sitter.

Sam was such a wonderful carer for our beautiful little poodle Teddy. She and Lindsay are so kind, highly skilled and intuitive in managing dog behaviour and showered Teddy with full on attention, love, affection and walks throughout his stay. Ted had never stayed with another dog before but got on so well with their gentle Sophie. Sam sent us lots of updates and beautiful photos throughout the stay which we now treasure. We would recommend Sam without hesitation, and really look forward to Ted staying with her again for his own little holiday.

Our dog Bronx stayed with Sam for two nights and we honestly could not have asked for a better sitter. Being his first time in an unfamiliar house overnight, we weren't sure how he would go. Turns out he didn't sleep much at all the first night, however Sam was so understanding and patient with him. Bronx also requires medication every night in his dinner, which Sam was able to administer. She gave Bronx 100% of her time and attention the whole weekend and took him for two big walks a day. She treated Bronx as if he was her own. She was understanding when we were a little later with pick-up then first organised and she even had him walked and fed prior to pick up. I would definitely recommend Sam to anyone looking for a caring and competent sitter. She was amazing!

Sam was absolutely amazing when it came time to leave my fur-baby - she has a wonderful calm and loving manner and adored Ziggy as though she was her own. She also kindly helped out my sister at short notice, when my sisters planned petsitter didn't work out and left her stranded for a carer for her 6 mth old puppy (when my sister was already on the other side of the world). The updates and photos confirmed that we made a great choice and gave us comfort that Ziggy was having her own fun holiday whilst we had ours without her. Sam is very patient (for eg, toilet training routines), great when it comes to giving ample exercise and knows about all things 'puppy'. I wouldn't hesitate to book her again and recommend her services to others.

Sam took our little Lenny on with about 24 hours notice. Was so flexible with times and continued with constant updates through the day with photos. It was nothing but a delight as he was only 2 months old, she took upon herself to go out of her way to grate train, toilet train and if we were to time poor even feed him breakfast. With Lenny being anxious she was the perfect sitter to take him on, its such a relief to drop him in knowing that Sam and Lindsay her partner, love him almost as much as we do. Anna and I can't speak highly enough of Sam, and will recommend her to anyone. If there was an option for 6 stars I would have given it.

Sam has looked after my eleven year old chihuahua “tigger” on many occasions. She makes sure she always gets her daily walks and medication as required. She treats tigger like her own and provides me daily updates which makes me so happy to see tigger happy while I’m away! Kim

My 2 elderly schnauzers, both on medications and special diets, have stayed with Sam on two occasions now and I could not be happier with their care. She's warm and loving with our little geriatric dogs, but also the complete and experienced professional when it comes to managing their special needs. Receiving regular updates and photos while we were away was such a bonus too. I'm a bit of an anxious mum, but with Sam looking after them I'm definitely a no worries mum!

Sam is fantastic! She did a beautiful job, picked up our boy after he played his part at our wedding ceremony, and looked after him like he was part of her family. She is professional, reliable and her home is perfect for any pup.

Sam is an amazing pet sitter and has gone above and beyond to make sure our little dog feels safe and comfortable. We have had a couple of daycare days and an overnight stay leading up to a 6 night stay just before Christmas. Sam sends regular photos and message updates so you can see your pet is doing well. We know that Lola will be safe and very well looked after whilst we are away. I would recommend Sam to anyone looking for a great sitter. Thanks Sam!
