The staff are incredible, loving, and caring to all the pets at Sam & Danni’s. The Pet Resort is always clean. The pictures on Facebook are a huge help to allow us to check in on our dog. The staff are always smiling…they love what they do and that makes us feel good when we are leaving our dog with them.

I have taken my dog Nena to all day daycare three times so far, she absolutely loves it, gets all excited when I tell her she is going to daycare and waits impatiently to get in the car. When we get there, she pulls me in the door and never even looks back when the staff takes her from me. She evidently has important doggie things to do and her doggie friends to see. I worked at Sam & Danni’s for 13 years, I know that the staff is excellent and caring and they care for your pets like they are their own. Thank you Sam & Danni’s, I never worry when I leave Nena there.

Sam and Danni’s is a safe and welcoming place for dogs and cats of all ages! We’ve been bringing our dogs to daycare and for boarding for years now. Tell Rigby that he’s going to Sam and Danni’s and he races out to the car! There are monitored playgroups for pets of all ages and energy levels. We are able to travel knowing that our pets are going to be very well cared for and are going to have a fun time, too! The professional staff at S&D is committed to taking great care of our pets and we trust them completely with ours.

Hi! I just wanted to tell you how much we appreciated the wonderful place you have and the attention given to our dog Lucy two weeks ago when we were in town. Sam and Danni’s is a safe, happy place for pets, and we’ll be sure to look you up again if we get back in the area with our dog. Thanks so much. Great job.

My dog Zoey has been coming to Sam and Danni’s for the last 4 years for grooming with Jodi. The staff is always friendly and helpful and Zoey LOVES Jodi! I am picky with Zoey’s cuts and Jodi does the best job! I wouldn’t go to any other place. Thank you Jodi, and Sam and Danni’s!

We love Sam and Danni’s because the staff there love our dogs as much as we do. When we are gone, we know our dogs are in the best hands, are well taken care of, loved and spoiled. The daycare and all day play programs have been instrumental with our puppy. He would not be as far along socially with other dogs or as reliable with his house training. Sam and Danni’s has also been a big part of teaching us how to better handle our dogs with their wonderful training classes too.

Over the last couple of days, it really hit me how much the staff love our dogs. They chose to honor, not only the dogs we still have, but the one who left paw prints on our heart.

We will always bring our dogs here. Thank you for your services!

I’ve been bringing my Teddybear Goldendoodle, Max to Sam and Danni’s for years and I couldn’t be happier. Max visits for daycare, all day play and overnight stays. It’s evident the moment you walk in; the staff are all animal lovers. Everyone welcomes him with all smiles. I love that the staff plays with the pets during playtime. Fun pictures are posted on Facebook almost daily. While on vacations, these pictures are extra special to see. Once while on vacation, my son was really missing Max. I emailed Sam and Danni’s to ask if they could post a picture of Max. They were able to find time to take a picture of Max and post it to Facebook for my son. That simple gesture made everyone a lot happier. 🙂 Thank you Sam and Danni’s! We appreciate your compassion for animals and great enthusiasm!
