About Amanda

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

Our names are Amanda and Sam, and we absolutely love, love, LOVE dogs. We're current students, so unfortunately we have no pups of our own, but will love to take care of your doggies for as long as needed! We grew up with our own dogs prior to leaving for college, and miss having a furry companion. Both of us (or at least one of us) will be at the apartment for 22 hours out of the day. Your pup will never be lonely or lack supervision!

We live in a spacious 872 sq-ft apartment with hardwood floors and carpet near the museum district. Our apartment has a balcony and is located about 5 minutes (walking distance) from a very nice, grassy dog park. We'll take care of any sized dog, from small paws to big paws.

We'd take care of your dog as if he/she were our own! Your dog will very rarely be left alone (if at all), and we will follow all notes and instructions you leave for us! If staying overnight, please bring everything necessary (such as food, favorite toys, leashes, etc.). Your pet will have plenty of playtime, cuddles, and love as well as ample outdoors time (if wanted)! We have very flexible pick up and drop off times as well. If you requested for us to pick up/drop off your pup, please have their rides readied and secured (or any other driving-related need they might have) so that they're comfortable riding in the car!

Frequent and daily updates and photos of your dog will be sent to you so you can see just how happy, comfortable, and relaxed your furry friend is!

Charlie had a amazing stay with Amanda! We are brand new to Houston and I was nervous about finding someone to watch her while I travel for work. She was flexible and answered right away and offered to meet up before hand to make sure it was a good fit. I got lots of pictures of Charlie having a blast while I was away. It really did look like she was on a vacation:)
We had a great experience with Amanda! We were really at ease leaving our two dogs with her. She was very flexible with pick up, great about daily communication/pictures while we were gone and took initiative about asking questions with things that came up while we were away. She seemed to enjoy our dogs as much as we do and that meant a lot to us! Highly recommend her services and hope to have her watch our two pups again in the future!
Amanda and Sam were great with our Senior "Pound Puppy"! He stayed with them for 6 nights and every day we were sent pictures of Max with updates about how he was doing. He looked so happy to be hanging out with these two! They played with him and took him on car rides, which I can tell he enjoyed. I also love that they were accommodating with our special request to have Max as their only guest during his stay. He's a spoiled doggie and it looks like Sam and Amanda did everything possible to make him feel right at home! I will definitaly use their services again in the future. They did a fantastic job watching over our baby the way that we would and that means a lot! Thank you!!
My fur baby Harper loved staying with Amanda, he was smiling when I picked him up! She texted me pictures and videos of him throughout his entire stay! The stream of communication confirmed his content and excitement on his vacation with Amanda. He got to play with other pups at the dog park and snuggle with his other pup friends during his stay:) He will be joining Amanda and her boyfriend again in September :)
I thought Amanda was great with Bella. No problems and no issues. Bella had a great time from the photos I saw. Thanks again!
Luckydog had a super fun time with Amanda! Amanda sent pictures multiple times a day, made sure Lucky got plenty of outdoor playtime with other dogs, and lots of love. I'm so happy with Lucky's experience with Amanda and will definitely be using her in the future. :)
Amanda doggie-sat for my two pups so we could have a party at our house on a Saturday evening without them underfoot. She was very flexible about our drop-off and pick-up time when we made the reservation, and responded quickly. It was very easy to drop our dogs off at her apartment building and our pups took to her right away. She has a nice dog park next to her building but my boy-dog doesn't do well with some breeds and so they couldn't enjoy the park. Both of my guys were calm and happy when we picked them up, and their toys and bowls were packed up in their bag. I'll certainly contact Amanda next time we need a dog-sitter for the day or overnight for a weekend.
Amanda and Sam were great with Dot. They communicated with me throughout our 36 hours away, sending pictures and asking questions. This was very reassuring to me. We will definitely use their services again!
Amanda and Sam took great care of our two dogs over a weekend! This was our first time to use Dog Vacay, and Amanda kept us updated with pictures so we felt more at ease with the whole process. I definitely recommend them as sitters for your pups!
So wonderful! Amanda sent me multiple pictures everyday and Winston was well taken care of. They went to the dog park quite a few times and on on many walks. Thank you for taking such great care of my baby!!
Amanda and Sam were great. They were very flexible on timing and gave great updates. I'll definitely be using them again.
I would definitely recommend Amanda to care for your dog. She was extremely accommodating for my early drop off and late pick up. Cooper seemed to thoroughly enjoy his time. She sent regular picture updates and messages. And to top it all off, he had been bathed before pickup. I will definitely use them again in the future.
Working with Amanda was great. She was very accommodating on a slightly last minute reservation, easy to communicate with and set up drop off and pick up. Most importantly our dog seemed to have a great time, when I went to pick him up he tried to go back with them rather than into my car. They even took him to the dog park before I went to pick him up so he would be nice and calm for me. I enjoyed my daily pictures of him while away. Would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs dog boarding.
I fully enjoyed having Amanda as my dog sitter for my 3 pups. She gave me picture updates every day and responded quickly to any/all questions I had. I won't hesitate to use her again! I mean...My dogs were taken to the dog park every day!

Thanks guys! See y'all soon
Amanda was absolutely amazing. She replied to us very quick and was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. She sent us a ton of photos and took our fur baby to the dog park next to her building multiple times a day. He came home cleaner than when we dropped him off (We are pretty sure she gave him a bath!!!), and he was so exhausted he slept for two days straight which is a lot for my energetic pup. He did not pick up any annoying habits that we have experienced after picking him up from the boarding place we have used in the past, such as barking much more.

I know my pup can make him self right at home very quick. He has no sense of boundaries and loves jumping on the bed/couch and loves to splash water from his water bowl. Amanda was not only not bothered by any of this, she also seemed to truly enjoy having him. We will definitely contact her for any future boarding needs! She provided us with comfort and peace of mind knowing Nikki was in good hands that I was able to fully enjoy my time away.

Thanks Amanda!
These guys were awesome. Sent me updates and pictures. The most relaxed I've ever seen my pup when picking him up after going out of town. Definitely using them again.
