Boarding & Daycare Reviews

Our dogs had a wonderful time being with Sam! She kept us up to date with pictures and video for our 10 day boarding stay. She made sure they were comfortable around the other dogs, fed, given treats, even told how pretty they are (they love to hear it!)! I can't recommend Sam enough. She has been very awesome and helpful and we will be using her for our needs in the future!

Absolutely love this place. Sam really makes this a luxury for your dog. Our giant baby practically yanks my arm off everytime she's arrived, car anxiety, motion sickness and all. We were on the fence about adopting a new puppy, but because of Sam we are thrilled to enroll our girl her new four-legged family member into one of Sam's double dog daycare packages as her bond with the animals she watches is exceptional. Saying SaMammals is your best bet at finding the right person to socialize your dog and give them the confidence they need to be healthy and happy is an UNDERSTATEMENT. Such a clean, safe, friendly, and fun atmosphere. Could not recommend more

Our Maggie loved going to "doggie daycare"!!! We knew she was being well taken care of and having fun. Loved getting the reports and seeing the pictures. Thank you Sam. - Linda Shander

Our Maggie went for the first time and loved being there! It was so great to know she was being taken such good care of. Thank you. - Allen Shander

My husband and I were in need of a puppy day care with our odd, constantly changing schedules. We search the whole area for dog day cares, in home dog sitters, etc. Each one had a draw back from inconvenient / strict drop off/ pick up hours, to over crowded play pens with no rest breaks, to caged in crates for 10+ hrs unless you pay for “extra” services, the list goes on.. then we came across SaMammals.. Within 24 hours, we found her website, talked on the phone, met in person and learned she had solutions for each of the drawbacks we encountered at the traditional daycares— flexible hours, more 1:1 care (cannot stress this one enough!!), more space for dogs to roam, rest breaks, etc.. We were nervous to drop our puppy off anywhere and slightly more nervous to drop her off at a non-traditional facility day care, but this non traditional day care is could not have been more of a blessing and is exactly what our pup needed!! Day 1 we got tons of update texts to help calm the nerves, tons of pictures + social media posts to catch up on all the fun they are having throughout the day, so much love + caring (from outdoor puppy coats provided to tons of cuddles), a sweet thank you note & treats and my favorite part is daily report cards of how the puppy did in various areas & areas to improve on. It’s all the things you don’t consistently get at any daycares near here (we toured tons and never found it)! Needless to say we fricken love SaMammals and will be using her for tons more than originally planned— extra day care days when not needed, boarding, play dates, etc! Thanks so much for putting in so much love into your business 🖤

Sam did a fantastic job of making sure our two labs met the others in doggy daycare at a pace that was comfortable for our girls. She is very detailed and organized AND as if that wasn’t enough, I got picture updates throughout the day and a break down of their activity (bathroom breaks, how often they drank, etc) We loved our experience so much that she will be boarding our girls during our vacation. Such a load off the shoulders to know that your dogs are in caring, capable, educated hands. I couldn’t recommend Sam enough. Don’t believe me? Look at the pictures. These faces don’t lie.

Fur Child: Nala (Labrador Retriever & German Shepherd Dog)

If you want the best, most caring, most responsible and loving care for your animal, Sam is your girl. This is a person who needs to be training all other pet boarders and pet sitters because she's awesome. I don't care where I live in this state, I will always drive to take my precious Nala to Sam when I travel. I was very nervous the first time because I had never used a boarder but, not only did Samantha take very good care of my dog, she constantly sent me pictures to ease my fears. She really loves what she does. It gets no better than SaMammals.

Fur Child: Sage (Cattle Doodle)

I was so nervous about bringing Sage to daycare because of his separation anxiety. Well after a day of doggie daycare with Sam, I’m questioning whether he even has anxiety now! He came back home so relaxed and happy. Usually after we get in the house he’s ready to play with that cat, but he can get too excited sometimes. Today he came in and laid down like he had been at work all day. I will be booking with Sam again tonight because I am sure this was exactly what my little pup needs on a regular basis. Thank you again so much, I’m so happy to have found someone trustworthy to watch him!

To anyone whose looking for a loving, caring person to watch their pets, I have just the right person! I was so stressed and ready to cancel my trip because I couldn't leave my "babies". But then I heard about "Sam". I couldn't BELIEVE how impressed I was! While away, Sam sent me photos of them. A detail on what they were doing. Even received a report card! Her main goal is to keep them in the same environment that they're used to and give them the very best care that they deserve. When I returned home and went to pick them up, I had the feeling they could care less about seeing me ! Yes, my being an animal lover I would highly recommend SAM! Want the world to know about her...and how great she is

My dogs absolutely love SaMammals. She has such a compassion for animals and really works to understand their individual needs -- which is rare. I am selective when it comes to who I trust with my dogs, but it is so hard not to trust someone who is as reliable, punctual, FRIENDLY, and conscientious as Samantha. Book with Sam, she does not disappoint

Sam is definitely our godsend and needless to say we can't believe we found her. From the first meet and greet we felt like we had known this woman forever...which really made leaving her with our babies (1 being just shy of 7 months) that much easier. The first day of our 2 week vacation we were so anxious and she proved trustworthy from start to finish! How she does it we don't know but one thing is for sure: both her and her service deserve nothing but the utmost appreciation and acknowledgment that she can get because it truly cannot be beat. No one deserves it more! Thank you, Sam, for letting us breathe again! We can't wait to book again..and again...and again!!!

Samantha was great with my Boston Terrier. She took pictures and my puppy looked like he was having a ball! Would definitely reccomend Samantha anytime.

I can't say enough wonderful things about SaMammals. The owner Sam Rae is simply impressive to work with on all fronts, and really dedicates her life to each pet under her care. We swear Bert is a different dog since Sam's been in his life...much happier, full of life. Worth every penny and then some! Thank you for all that you do!!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️

This is the best doggie daycare, boarding and walking service I could ask for! Sam is amazing with both our Great Dane Pearl and our cat, Gus. She is incredibly responsive and even when we’re not around, Sam’s detailed reports and pictures keep us up to date on how our pets are doing.

She’s so accommodating and our pets love her. I also love that her boarding services are home boarding vs crates.

My pet comes home happy and tired from all the play time and attention she gets from SaMammals - love this business!

Hi, my dog's stay at Samantha's house was a good one. I believe the dog was well cared for and had a good time. Samantha sent pictures everyday and I saw that my dog was playing and having a wonderful time at her house. I highly recommend Samantha to watch your dog.
