About Sam

Hey!!

My name is Sam and I have grown up with just about every animal over my lifetime. I have always loved animals, which ended up with my poor mother adopting a farm full of animals I found that needed a loving home over my years at home.

Growing up, I did stints of volunteering at the SPCA and also the Riding Disabled Association. Not to mention my love for the ocean and growing up as a surf lifeguard, there were a fair few rescue penguins and other sea life over the years!

Recently, I have got a puppy of my own and know how hard it is to find somewhere for them to go if you are needing to work or go on a holiday. I want to create an easy and affordable option for people, so they can enjoy their time away stress free knowing their pets are in good hands. 

More than happy to discuss lower rates if you need!

Home visits: Provide a check of your pets feed, water and litter box (if applicable). Playtime and cuddles are also included. Home visits tend to be 30 minutes, if your dog requires a walk at that time plese let me know. Additionally, I can provide other services such as plant watering or putting rubbish out on bin days.

Walks: Happy to walk your dog at a place of preference or around nearby areas to your resisdence. I can walk them with my dog or by themselves whichever you prefer. Walk lengths will typically be 30mins to an hour.

House sitting: I provide house sitting whilst you are away. Generally my dog will be with me so a meet and greet to begin with is a must! If you'd prefer my dog not to come please be in touch as I have other arrangements.

Additionally, I have nursed many animals back to full health. So rest assured your companion will be in good hands.

I look forward to meeting you and your furry friends.
