About Sam Pet Companion

Sam is married and in her 40s with no dependents. She is reliable, flexible, friendly and above all trustworthy.  Her business has been going from strength to strength over the past 3 years. 

She provides a first class service as your 'Pet's Companion'. She has a clear Disclosure and Barring Service certificate (previously CRB) and a Canine First Aid Certificate from Writtle College.  She holds Pet Business insurance. 

Her priority is to ensure that your pet is given the attention and care he/she deserves and that you are pleased with the service provided.  She doesn't provide pack walks for numerous dogs together. She prefers to give her clients the 1 on 1 attention they deserve. 

Sam has had numerous pets during her life and has previously volunteered for the RSPCA, Cat Protection and The Cinnamon Trust (A charity which provides a dog walking/pet feeding service for the elderly and terminally ill).

As the first week of you walking Abbey progressed, my confidence grew. I began to relax and concentrate more on my work without worrying about my girl. Thank you.

Type Of Pet : 3 Birman Cats
Service Provided : Feeding Service and attention
Town Country : Lexden, Colchester
"The cats are so happy and, after the regular brushing you've been giving them, their coats are lovely and shiny too." Sam lets them out into the garden for a little while and lets them back in before she leaves. One of our cats loves to drink straight from a trickling tap and Sam even keeps up with this routine in our absence. All of our cats get mucky eyes and Sam brought along the Aloe Vera eye wipes that she uses on her own cats. We've now got some for our three too. We can't recommend Sam enough. She does her utmost to accommodate short-notice bookings too.

Sam looks after our two Birman cats for us when we're away. They require special attention and one is very highly strung and needs getting in early. Sam is just brilliant!! She knows how to get on with pets, understands them and just sorts everything out. Very highly recommended

Sam looked after our four cats for a week. Very happy with the service she provided to our cats and us as owners, especially as our eldest requires medicine twice a day. Sam is a lovely person and we made a great decision when choosing her. We would highly recommend her to anyone.

Sam has been walking my dog Alfie for a few months now. Sam is professional, walks and feeds him and adapts each day to the weather and what Alf feels like doing. It is a great comfort to know that he is well looked after whilst I am at work and that he also has fun! Thanks Sam.

Sam did a wonderful job walking our two labradoodles, we went on holiday for three weeks leaving them with our friends. Sam walked them during the day when our friends were working. Knowing they were so well cared for meant we had a totally stress free holiday. We shall definitely use Sam's services again.

Sam provides a first class service for you and your dogs.... Firstly with a visit to meet you and your dogs with countless paperwork to prove she is professional and insured going through all the information and putting your mind at rest that she will look after your dogs without any others and without children. Sam leaves a detailed report every day on the walk as well as caring for the dogs by the way of leaving fresh water and drying them off when leaving them. Sam is polite, punctual and uses her own initiative and we would recommend Sam without any hesitation.
