Sam's Pet & Home Services
How Sam's works:At no charge I will meet with you for an initial consultation to determine needs, get instructions, get oriented, and get connected with the animals.
On each visit Sam's leaves a written status report.
Dog walking and exercising services:With you and your dog we come
up with an individual plan that works. We provide a traditional dog walk,
a workout dog walk, exercising while on lead or in backyard. If your dog needs
socialization then they can walk with my rescue dog Norton. We can mixed all of these
services with your dog for maximum benefit. For an older
dog or disabled dog, we can do a slow walk so they can smell the roses.
How Sam's Came to Beby Rick Rosenberry
For 20 years I was involved in a variety of levels of social service work.
I wanted to create and run a small business that involved customer service, trust, communication, feedback, and animals.
I chose pet sitting services because of my ability to develop a connection with dogs and cats, and my concern that they receive quality care. I wanted the animals to let their owners know that they can trust Sam's. In other words the owners could tell a difference, whether it was pet sitting a shy cat or daily dog walking.
Sam was an abused stray mixed breed dog a friend of mine found at the Canadian border. My friend moved and could longer keep Sam, and I gladly said I would care for him. The two of us were inseparable the next 14 years. Though not a large dog, he had a strong personality. His reddish coat would cause people to stop and ask questions about him. I named the business after Sam, to honor him. We had a powerful relationship for those 14 years.
I spent a number of years as a ranch hand in Montana. The vast majority of each day was spent caring for a variety of animals. It is on the ranch that I realized that I had a connection with animals. I witnessed my dog Sam blossom while at the ranch.
