Introduction: **PLEASE READ CAREFULLY FIRST. I have a full time day job, so drop in it's aren't the most convenient and I can do evenings only. For over night stays please because I have a job I am not around mid day if your furbaby needs mid day potty breaks. I also keep my calendar on here up to date so if I'm showing unavailable I already have a job for those days! Thank you!** I'm a 35 yr old professional working at O'hare. I Love dogs of all sizes I have grown up with them. I have been dog Sitting since I was a teenager. I am experienced with medicine administration, with the exception of shots but I'd be open to learning if need be. I will send pictures daily as well. I love dog cuddling as well as cats. I prefer to sit in your home as I feel it is less stressful on the animal having only a new person around instead of a stranger and a strange environment. I generally try and avoid doing FT watching at my house as my cat is very picky with the dogs he likes, but I'd be open with the right dog. I am used to living out of a suitcase I often go straight from one dog job to the next. I live in a 2 flat with my parents so my mom can help during the day for doggy daycare if need be. My parents have a male german shepard and we have a large fenced yard and dog run. I inherited my cat when my former Neighbor moved out of the county. I used to sit for them while they went on vacation for their numerous pets cats and dogs (5+). I do have a car so I can get around or take "kids" anywhere needed.

We’ve entrusted Sam for years with our dogs, cats and home when we are away. She was initially referred to me by my vet since I had an elderly, special needs dog who I wouldn’t leave with anyone! I knew my pets were in great hands with Sam. She is professional, responsive and so wonderful with animals. She indulges my crazy dog mom requests of text updates and photos while I’m away. And my dogs love her! You will too!

Samantha has been watching our two dogs for years now and stays in our house when we are gone. It is so comforting knowing that our dogs are at home and being so well taken care of. She is always available to answer any questions and keeps us updated with pics of the dogs. We highly recommend using Samantha and your pets will thank you as well! True professional, trustworthy, and very caring person. Eric & Kathy

Samantha is always our first choice to stay with our two dogs (and our tortoise). She treats them like they’re her own pets! She’s super easy to get ahold of and sends lots us of pictures of our very happy pets. She gets our very highest recommendation.

Sam is an awesome caregiver and house-sitter -- punctual, super-communicative, laid-back, and absolutely great with our girls (2 dogs and cat). We feel 100% good about leaving our house and girls in her hands. She always comes over before each trip to catch up on any updates (and our girls are always so happy to see her), and during her stay she keeps us up-to-date about the girls and at ease. We feel like she's part of the family. Thanks so much for everything, Sam!

She is my own personal Dog Whisperer. Ivy was so relaxed around her from our very first meeting. I knew Sam was the dog sitter for me. She already came highly recommended, but her connection with Ivy is what made it the right choice. I trust her with my fur baby and you should too. I give her 5 stars and Ivy gives her 5 paws!
