About Sam

Hi, my name is Sam!

I am a loving, friendly and reliable pet sitter. I currently have an adopted kitty called Pablo, who loves making new friends with visiting dogs (as long as your dog is cat friendly). I have a fully fenced backyard which is a secure play area for your pet/s. I also live 2 minutes away from Nixon Park which is very dog-friendly.

**NON SMOKING HOUSE**

I am an experienced pet owner, having owned many big dogs (Labs, Golden Retrievers) and some small dogs too (Schnauzer x Jack Russell, Westie, Pomeranian).

I love spending time with animals, hence offering my pet sitting and minding services.

Dog Boarding: Dog sitting is the most common service that I provide, and can be worked around my study schedule (please see below).

House Sitting: I provide house sitting or home visits whilst you are away on holiday within the following areas in Auckland Central: Kingsland, Mt Eden, Westmere, Pt Chevalier, Ponsonby, Grey Lynn and Auckland City.

Daycare: I provide doggy daycare on Mondays and Wednesdays. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between the hours of 7am to 12pm. Weekend doggy daycare is any time.

I can walk your dog as many times as required during the day (1-2 times daily) and can accommodate to the dogs walking needs (long walk/short walk, running for bigger dogs, easy walks for smaller or older dogs) and on weekends can take your dog to the beach or Meola reef which is a fun dog park.

I take pets to stay over at my house in Kingsland. I also live with my mother Nicky who loves a cuddle and is a huge animal lover.

I am also a student and study 1pm to 5pm most weekdays, so prefer to have a dog that is comfortable being alone for a few hours (only on Tuesdays and Thursdays as one of us is home Mondays, Wednesdays and some Fridays), but please get in touch as this may change.

When staying with us you can trust that your dogs' needs will be catered to and that your pup/s will be in a clean and friendly environment whilst you are away.

I also can provide daily correspondence with photos and a short message about how your dogs day has been.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have 😊
