Sam has been with Waggin' Tails since 2016. She has two dogs, Buddy and Xena. When outside of work Sam enjoy's going to the dog park with Buddy and Xena and watching them play with their friends.Sam's favorite part about working at Waggin' Tails is getting to create bonds and friendships with all of the dogs that come in for daycare or to stay with us while their parents are away. It's so great seeing how excited they are to be here when they walk in the front door and how happy they are when they see their favorite staff members!
