Samantha is very kind, caring, flexible and understanding of special needs. We left our baby with her for two weeks and upon our return he was happy and not depressed. She kept him on our schedule, administered his medicine, and maintained his special diet. We never boarded our dog out before as we always hired house/animal sitters but after this experience we will definitely use Samantha again. We also loved that she sent us pictures of him showing him having fun.
