Willow's Walkies and Boarding

About Sam

I offer boarding, day care, home visits, and dog walks.

My services are currently weekend and evenings because I work full time Monday - Friday as a healthcare professional. I recently completed a canine first aid course to enhance my knowledge in this area.

I love animals, especially dogs and they've always been a big part of my life and heart.

I have a friendly Patterdale Terrier called Willow. She's been going to doggy day care from a young age, where she mixes with dogs of all shapes and sizes. She also does agility and attends dog meet up sessions so she is a well socialised happy little dog.

She has a mothering nature since last year when she had pups, but is also energetic and playful. It's important that the dogs I look after are social and interactive with Willow so that she can enjoy the experience too. I always arrange a meet and greet in a neutral place to ensure suitability for boarding.

I'm a short walk away from the canal and Pennington Flash so can offer exercise locally in a nice environment. Your dog could also join us on doggy days out to places like Formby Point, Anglezark Reservoir and Rivington Pike.

At home there's me and my husband Adam and Willow. We have plenty of space and will provide attention and cuddles for your dog and a safe, happy place to stay. I even have a dedicated 'dog room' complete with bedding and sofa where your dog can feel right at home with Willow to keep them company.

If you're interested get in touch! We'll have a chat and see just what it is you need so that you can relax knowing your dog is in trustworthy hands. I intend to extend my services in the near future so please contact me if you would like to register interest for weekday walks and Boarding.

    Another enjoyable stay with Sam, Adam and Willow for my fur babies, Bella and Bonnie. They are often nervous with new people but Sam has always made them feel so reassured, relaxed and cared for. Sam has dedicated a beautiful space in her home for the dogs to relax in which shows how dedicated she is to ensuring the comfort of each dog that stays. Whilst away, Sam sends me regular updates so I always know what my two are getting up to. Couldn't reccommend her highly enough! Sam is flexible to accommodate your needs any way she can and it's hugely appreciated. After trying a few different dog sitters in Leigh, even one that's associated with Paws Doggy Day Care, Sam is without a doubt the best. Don't hesitate to book, you certainly won't regret it.

    Yet again another fantastic experience with Sam, Adam and of course Willow. Our two had a ball and we could relax knowing they are in such capable and caring hands. Will continue to book in for any events we are going to. Can't thank Sam and Adam enough. Also, they have a beautiful dog room downstairs in the house which is like a little dog sanctuary, it's absolutely amazing. Please don't hesitate to book in with Sam, we can't recommend highly enough, she's out of this world.

    Bella and Bonnie had a wonderful weekend with Sam and Willow. Sam was so reassuring and sent us regular update with how they were both doing and we cannot thank her enough. She made our weekend so much better knowing our beloved fur babies were in such capable, kind and caring hands. They came home very content like they almost didn't want to come home! Not to mention her partner taking the most beautiful professional looking photos of Bella and Bonnie, and we will cherish them! They will certainly be going back and we can't thank Sam enough. Such a wonderful lady and without a doubt the best dog sitter around. Don't hesitate, book with Sam. She really is one of a kind and her dog Willow is so loving with other dogs which is even more welcoming. Thank you Sam Xx
