Sama Dog’s Bed & Breakfast for Dogs

Located in Vista, California  (North County San Diego)

Our Bed & Breakfast for Dogs is a one-of-a-kind overnight dog boarding service that provides loving, individualized care for your pup in a way that’s different from anyplace else.

More than just a bed & breakfast for VIPs (Very Important Pups), our B&B also provides Balance & Bliss. Our specialty at Sama Dog lies in applying natural, holistic care to support your pet’s individual needs – leaving them feeling happy and healthy in body, mind and spirit. We gladly offer every dog who stays at our B&B a menu of optional treatments and services (the majority at no additional charge) to help make their stay exceptional.


We’re knowledgeable and highly-experienced caretakers who are willing and able to give your dog the best possible circumstances while being away from their home, caring for them like part of the family. We’ve housed, fostered, rehabilitated (or given forever homes) to hundreds of dogs with a wide array of needs. We’re able to provide support with special needs such as administering medication or extensive supplement regimens, specialized meal preparations, specific types of exercise or daily requirements, assistance with mobility and much more.

Our intention is to send your dog back to you more balanced, happy and nourished, which in many cases means you’ll return home to a healthier, better-behaved pup.

  • Home-like experience with plenty of individual attention, love and play
  • Guest suite accommodations in a cozy, private farm-style home

I met Amanda at a Sama Dog workshop about a year ago. I had rescued my Maltipoo, King, about 2 1/2 years ago and ever since I got him he had been anxious, hid under the bed for a large part of the day, was reactive towards other dogs, and just didn't seem happy. I was feeling stressed and overwhelmed with trying to figure out how to help him, and Amanda suggested I have King stay at her B&B for a week or so, so she could really observe his behavior and work with him, as well as socialize him with her three dogs. The B & B is awesome - a special room for dogs of all sizes, with a calming and welcoming atmosphere in a quiet neighborhood with a large backyard to run and play in. Amanda offers so many options and add-ons, such as music therapy, aromatherapy, herbs and supplements, dietary recommendations, and much more. King ended up staying for two weeks and the immediate change in him has been so great! He participated in chakra balancing sessions, daily walks with the rest of the pack, specialized and individualized care, such as flower essences, and much love and TLC. Amanda sent videos, pictures, and frequent updates on his progress. He quickly adjusted to the other dogs and by the end of his stay he was enjoying their company! He's been back home a week now and he has had playdates with other dogs, to continue socializing him. While he still doesn't seem to enjoy being around other dogs much, he tolerates them and is not reactive. He is much calmer around them. There have been other major changes in his behavior and demeanor that I've noticed, and I cannot thank Amanda, Rene, and their dogs for all they did for King! He is on the path to healing and living a happier, healthier life. I would definitely bring King there again for a stay at the B&B, and recommend Amanda and her services to anyone who wants the best for their dog. She is professional, knowledgeable, and so friendly and sincere. I look forward to participating in future workshops and working with Amanda again!
