About Amy

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Amy’s Animal House. A fun and safe place for your dog to vacation while you are away.

I live in an appx. 1000 sq. ft. twinplex. Your dog will have free roam of my home. Unless you have specific sleeping instructions or bring a crate your dog may sleep wherever he/she chooses. My dog sleeps in his crate and on my bed, back and forth all night long. In the summer you will find him in the bathroom on top of the air conditioning vent. I do block off the living room at night and whenever I leave the house (Scout is a naughty dog and gets into things he shouldn't).

My back yard is fenced and Scout, my 60 lb. Australian Shepherd mix, welcomes any friendly dogs to come and stay a while. The sidewalks in my neighborhood are great for walks. Your dog will get 2 walks a day around the neighborhood (weather permitting) and all the outdoor playtime they want.

After losing my job to outsourcing I decided to go back to school full time to earn my Bachelor of Accounting degree. I attend classes online so right now I am home all day long to cater to your dog’s needs. I will be graduating the end of March, 2017, and will be looking for a full time job after that and will no longer be home all day.

I grew up with a dog and have been a dog owner for 14 of the last 17 years. Life is much better when shared with a dog. I look forward to meeting you and your dog and spoiling him or her while you are away.

Our chocolate Lab, Sadie stayed with Amy while we were on vacation last week. Amy sent us pics or videos every day while we were gone & Sadie always looked happy & seemed to get along with Scout. It made our vacation even more relaxing knowing she was well cared for, we will definitely use Amy again!

Amy was wonderful and did such a great job with my puppy! I loved getting picture updates too.
Loved having updates and pictures twice a day. Will use again if need to go away again.
I knew the first time I met Amy that she was a dog lover simply by her kind demeanor. I had no idea what a superb pet sitter she would be. She sent multiple messages and/or videos daily, not only to us (we were out of the country and it was hard to get our email) but to our grown son who could access her messages easily. When I could finally view the videos I could see that our dog was having a marvelous time. As long as we and she remain in this area, we wil never use another pet sitter. Amy is a star!!!

Our dog Harley enjoyed his time with Amy. They went for walks daily and he loved playing with her dog Scout. Amy really cares for dogs and it shows. We will definitely schedule a dog vacay with her again soon.

Amy was wonderful! Our Mastiff had a great time with her pup Scout. We loved all of the picture updates throughout the day as well. We will def be bringing Buster back here in the future. Thank you!!
Our dog Cooper resently stayed with Amy and we we had a great experience. Amy was flexible on pick up and drop off times. She also gave us updates during his stay. Amy responded quickly to all our communications. Scout was also very accepting to Cooper to his home. Cooper was well taken care of and got a lot of attention. We will definitely use Amy again.

We received pictures and/or videos every day. Winnie got daily walks and a yard to play in. Amy was flexible with drop off and pickup times, and responded quickly to all communications. We would definitely use her again.
First time leaving my dogs, she texted videos to let me know they were fine. She and Scout make the experience great.
Amy was very understanding with my one dog that is very timid when she goes to a new place. She was willing to work with me and bring my dog back to see if my dog is less timid on the second visit. I would definitely bring my dogs back to Amy again.

Amy was the best! Scout too! She is flexible with drop off and pick up. I will definitely ask Amy to watch our Stogie again - Stogie was well cared for a got a lot of attention. I can't say enough good things about our experience. I would give her ten stars if I could.

Zoey was very comfortable with Amy. She was excited to arrive at her house for her second visit. Amy kept me updated with photos and videos via text. Would definitely recommend her. We will be using her often.
I felt very comfortable leaving my dog Koko with Amy. She was very patient with her Koko was a little nervous at first. I got pictures and videos while I was away. I will most definitely be going back! :)
Great experience
Amy and her dog, Scout, were the perfect hosts for my excitable Lab, Cheddar. Amy was attentive to my needs when leaving him and also to my dog during his stay. Cheddar came home tired and happy! I will be asking Amy to take care of my dog again very soon! She's great! Thank you so much!

Amy was fantastic. She was very flexible with times and dates, and she absolutely loves dogs and takes great care of them. I would never hesitate to use her services again.
Amy is the best! I got daily pictures and often videos too.
Amy is the best! Maggie gets regular walks and Amy is fabulous about sending daily photo updates.
Amy was very sweet and caring to Lexi :) She was super flexible about drop off and pick up times which was very helpful! We will be booking with her again!
Amy C did a great job with our dog, Clara.

Clara is a young fox terrier with an unreasonable amount of energy. Since Clara has not been with us that long and is still working on her manners, I was uncomfortable taking her tent camping.

At the Meet and Greet Amy impressed me with how she handled the dogs in her care. She flawlessly was able to talk to my husband and I about Clara while juggling the two dogs staying with her and her own dog Scout.

Amy and her dog Scout were very patient with Clara. There were many updates throughout Clara's stay via text that showed her having a good time. I especially loved the one that showed Scout and Clara playing tug of war. My girls loved to see how Clara was doing on her vacation!

I would not hesitate to use Amy again to care for Clara.

This was the best experience for both Maggie and me. I got daily updates, along with pictures and/or video, which showed that Maggie was happy and being taken care of.

I felt as if leaving Maggie with Amy was like leaving her with a member of the family!

We are sooo glad we found Amy!
She was absolutely accomodating and inviting to her home for the meet and greet of the pups. She is very organized and tully gives the best attention to the dogs during their stay.
She would keep us posted through the day with pictures abd videos of the dogs just having a great time!
We felt very comfortable leaving Monty with her. We highly reccommend her!

Monty came home and he was just exhausted from the great time he had with the other dogs!
Very happy!

We are very happy with care provided by Amy. After two days our dog Yoshi was happy, healthy and energetic. She was taking care of two other dogs so dogs played in her fanced backyard and had lots of fun (including small pool filled with water). Indoor was also dog friendly with lots of clean toys. We would recommend Amy to other dog owners as responsible and caring dog sitter.

This was our first time to have daycare for our puppy. It was a very good experience. Amy is good at sending updates via text, which is reassuring. Our dog likes Amy. His second day of daycare, he ran right in and found a toy and was not concerned about me leaving at all. He comes home tired, but happy, after a full day of play with Scout and any other dogs she may be watching. I was concerned because our dog is a young puppy, but Amy was sensitive to his needs and schedule.

Our dog is comfortable with Amy. He was excited to arrive at her house. Although he was happy to see me when I picked him up, he was not overly anxious to leave. Amy kept me updated with photos and videos via text throughout the weekend. Our dog is a puppy and she was very sensitive to his needs and schedule. It was a very good experience. I did not worry about our dog once over the weekend.

This was my first exposure to DogVacay; I was pleased with the experience overall.

Everything from the initial meeting with Amy (and Scout) to the pickup exceeded my expectations.

Amy provided semi-daily updates with photos! I could see my dog Ruger was having a great time and was well treated. Honestly, I'm not sure who had the better vacation, me or Ruger.

I recommend using Amy as a sitter and I will be using her again!

Amy was great my dog liked all the walks and also playing with her dog scout. She sent plenty of pictures and was very responsive to emails and texts. I would definitely recommend her.
Our dog Grizz had a great stay with Any and her dog Scout. Extremely easy communication with Amy and we loved getting photos from her everyday. Morning and evening walks, a fenced in yard and a really lovely home. You can tell Amy has a huge heart for dogs and you can guarantee your pup will be in great hands with Amy. Thanks for everything!
