About Amelia

23 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a family of 4, plus one very special English Cream Retriever pup that loves other dogs. We live in a 5500sqft house with a large fully fenced back yard that backs up to soccer fields and a play park. We have added two doggie doors to our house to provide pups the freedom to roam as they please. My husband and I, as well as our two girls, love spending time with animals and would love to welcome your four-legged family member into our house and lives while you are away. Your dog will get around the clock care and attention as both my husband and I work from home. We pride ourselves on providing top of the range care for each pup that enters our home with lots of pampering and grooming. We look forward to hearing from you and meeting your pup!

Amelia was amazing! We would highly recommend her. She was a real lifesaver, helping out last minute when our other sitter fell through. Our pups clearly enjoyed playing in the big yard with their new friends. We got lots of picture updates, which we loved. Our pups came home very happy and tired. Thanks again!
We had an amazing experience boarding our 7 year old adopted lab wit Amelia. She had a great time and we loved getting photos while we were gone. This is the first time we have ever left her and we have already booked another trip. Thank you so much!!
What a great experience! Amelia is terrific. She's super responsive to any questions and sends almost daily texts with photos - my kids loved seeing these each night. The setup is great - it's not a kennel, but her house where the dogs roam free like they would in your own home. Our 7 month puppy came home with better manners and clean - I think Amelia snuck in a bath before we picked her up. We would definitely use Amelia again.
We just left our dog with Amelia for the first time and I cant say enough good things about the experience. Convenient location, easy drop off and pick up, daily texts and emails with photos of the dogs having fun.
She came home clean and happy and we wouldn't hesitate to use "Bailey's Best Buds" again. I have already recommended them to neighbors.

It is a great place ! U'Bell and Bleuet really liked it ! It was so nice of Amelia to send us pictures and news of our dogs every day, we really loved it!
Our dog has stayed with Amelia a number of times (6? 8? not sure).

She is so great with our pup! Lots of photos, always well taken care of. Great yard, great house.

Our dog clearly always has so much fun and is pooped after.

Highly, highly recommend. She's great!
Our dog had such a wonderful time at Amelia's house. The pictures that Amelia sent us were amazing shots of our Sweetie dog. He came home very worn out from a week of playing with other dogs and he was very well cared for. THANK YOU!!
Amelia is wonderful with our big, goofy, playful, energetic Lab mix. She understands dog communication and the workings of a happy pack. Our dog gets plenty of friendly dog playtime and comes home happy and exhausted.
Amelia was great! They have a beautiful home and yard and Oakley had tons of fun. The pictures she sent me were adorable. We will definitely be back!
Amelia is fabulous, we enjoy our vacations even More because we know that our Pup will be loved while we are away.
So glad I found Amelia. Boomer loved her and her whole family. Would highly recommend!
Amelia is so good with Dakota. Dakota has a great time at her place. We feel very comfortable leaving Dakota with her. He is not stressed when we pick him up which has been an issue at other places that we have left him. We plan to use Amelia for Dakota's away from home care. She is simply Awsome!!!
Amelia was awesome!!! From seeing the photos and videos, we could tell that Yoshi had so much fun everyday there. Planning our next vacation won't be as stressful because we will book reservation with Amelia again and know it will be a vacation for Yoshi, too. Highly recommended! :)
This was our Lab Maple's first stay with Amelia and she had a great time! Amelia was so wonderful and sent us lots of photos while we were away. You can tell she is a total dog lover to her core :)
Amelia is wonderful! My puppy was stressed when we got there, and by the time I got back home( works min) she was sending me pictures of him playing with the other two dogs in the back yard . I would definitely recommend Amelia to anyone .
Amelia was so awesome with our dog Zeus. She sent tons of pictures while I was away and when Zeus got a bit of an ear infection, she called the vet right away and let us know right away as well. She was so wonderful to work with and with Zeus and the other dogs that I will definitely use her services again!
Amelia took fantastic care of our dog. We received tons of pictures everyday and he seemed like he was having a blast playing with the other dogs and taking naps inside her house with his new buddies.
This is our third time having our dog stay with Amelia. She is very accommodating and shows him lots of love. I think he behaves better with Amelia than us! Highly recommend. Calm, reliable, consistent, trustworthy.
Amelia took great care of our puppy and sent us frequent updates and pictures. This was our first time leaving the 6-month-old pup, and we were happy she was in such capable hands!
Leaving my little guy with Amelia is always a great experience. I would refer her to anyone needing to leave they animal children. I am even thinking about day care just because my little guy loves it there so much.
Amelia, looks after our pup even time we go away. She is amazing, our pup loves her!! Amelia, is calm and confident with all the dogs she looks after and always sends us photos of how she is getting on.
Our Portuguese Water Dog stayed with Amelia and her family for 10 days and had a blast! There was water for him to play in and other dogs to run around with. Amelia sent us photos every day that put our minds at ease that he was more than well taken care of! What a joy! And affordable!
We are new to the state and did not know anyone to watch our dog while we travel. Amelia's name was recommended to us. She is amazing!! Our dog, who is shy, felt very comfortable and safe right from the beginning with the meet and greet. We were gone a week, and received many pictures everyday, and when we picked him up he was happy and well cared for!! I would highly recommend Amelia, and we plan on using her again in the near future!!
Good communication and flexible scheduling. He had a great time.
What a great place for a dog to stay...thumbs up.
Our dogs spent a week with Amelia and they had a blast! We really appreciated all the pictures she sent and it was obvious our dogs were having a great time. They were so pooped when we got them home that they slept for two days!
So, so pleased!! I was wondering if my dog would even want to come home.
Amelia is excellent! She took greatcare of Watson and provided we with numerous pictures during his stay. I could tell Watson was enjoying his stay! I look forward to using Amelia for my future boarding needs!
Amelia is amazing! She takes such good care of our dog! I never worry about him and know he is always coming home happy and tired. I appreciate how flexible she is and her family and dog Bailey (Gunnar's BFF) are also amazing.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Amelia for being the best Dogyvacay around.
First of all, we could not have enough good things to say about our pups stay with Amelia. And Sierra, our pup, had plenty to say when we came to pick her up - she did not want to leave she had such a great time.

There are times when puppies will be puppies and sometimes they do really silly things like deciding to go through the rose bush after the ball instead of around it and they end up with a cut; silly puppy. Fortunately, there was Amelia to make sure that everything was properly taken care of, the cut was cleaned and dressed and most importantly we were notified immediately of the issue including pictures. Sierra was taken care of as if she was Amelia’s own you couldn’t ask for anything more.

Amelia was awesome about keeping us up to date throughout our pups entire visit (lots of pictures / videos) and Sierra could not have been in better hands. Amelia even checked in on Sierra after she got home to make sure that everything was healing well.

We would HIGHLY recommend Amelia for your pups Vacay, they will be very well cared for. We know Sierra is looking forward to her next visit.
This was Lucia's 1st time there and she had a blast. Thanks so much for the care and love you showed her. She will be back.
Amelia and her family took great care of our puppies. We received daily updates and so many wonderful pictures. We will definitely be contacting her again for any care our puppies need. Thank you Amelia!!!
Great experience! She sent pictures and updates:)
Thank you Amelia for providing such a wonderful home for Banjo while we were away! He clearly had a great time and came home both tired and relaxed from all the playtime. We appreciated the daily photos and could tell he was being well cared for. We will certainly be bringing him back soon. Thanks again!
Our 1.5 year old golden stayed with Amelia and family for 10 days and we believe they took good care of him and provided him with a safe and fun environment. I got daily reports on how each day went, as far as play time, eating and sleeping and also received many pictures at the end of the day of him running and jumping and playing with the other dogs and then happily asleep in the afternoon or at the end of the day. We plan on bringing him back for either another extended care stay or day care to just have fun with his furry friends.
Just brilliant! Last-minute request for daycare was available. Amelia sent busy dog photos during the day, and I picked up a smiley, happy pup in the evening. Delighted to have found this gem!
We couldn't be happier than we are with Amelia and her wonderful family! We were planning to leave our 9 month old puppy at a kennel after a bad dog sitter experience. After trying the kennel for a few hours the week before our trip, we realized it was too stressful for our pup with the constant barking, lack of attention, and cement "stalls" for the long nights. Then we found Amelia! After meeting Amelia and the other pups who would be staying there, I knew it was the perfect spot. Amelia is lovely and very caring. She works from home so she is around with the pups during the day. Her house is beautiful and she allows the pups to roam around and go in and out as they please with the doggy doors. She even invites them into her bedroom at night! Our puppy was so happy there and it made our vacation so much better knowing she was in loving hands. While we were away Amelia texted us updates and sent lots of pictures so we could see the fun our puppy was having. We have already booked her stay with Amelia for our summer vacation.
I don't think there is at better family out there to take care of your animal children. My two little guys loved their entire experience and want to go back every time I get ready to walk out the door. I never worried the whole time I was away, Amelia sent me a lot of fun pictures throughout their stay. I would recommend Amelia and her family to everyone I know. It is a wonderful feeling to know that your pets are so loved while you are away.
We are so happy to have found Amelia! Our Golden Retriever, London stayed with Amelia and her family for a week during spring break. Their yard is perfect for dogs! Generally when we drop London off at a boarder or even family/friends, she cries and shakes. With Amelia, London ran right in. Then when we picked her up she actually seemed sad to have to leave!!!

I highly recommend Amelia :-)
Louie had a great stay! We will definitely use Amelia again!
Amelia is WONDERFUL! A true dog whisperer! Our dog Kaz spent 16 nights with Amelia and her family, and we received updates and the cutest photos of Kaz with the other pups. From the beginning until the end of our stay, Amelia's communication was excellent! For the first time in 8 years, I didn't worry about our boy while we were gone, and we will surely be back!
Our two dogs had an awesome first stay at Amelia and her family. We feel very comfortable having our dogs stay with them during our upcoming vacation.
Excellent. Amelia is so kind. Took great care of our dogs. House is beautiful with a great fenced yard for the dogs to run she also walked the dogs. She even gave George a bath cause he tends to get dirty
Wouldn't hesitate to book again with Amelia !
Amelia and her family (including Bailey) were so wonderful, I did not worry at all with Tiberius at her home. Amelia sent me wonderful pictures of Tiberius playing and sleeping. He had such a good time at Amelia's, that I would not hesitant to recommend her to anyone. She obviously loves dogs and takes great care of all of them.
Working with Amelia is a great experience for the dog and the dog owner. The house is an amazing space for dogs to move around inside and outside. The backyard is amazing. Amelia was very accommodating and quick to respond. Her daily updates are great as well. We highly recommend Amelia.
Amelia is absolutely amazing! My dogs were so spoiled in her home! Her yard is more than perfect and the videos and pictures I received wee amazing:)!
Roxy always seems to have so much fun at Amelia’s house. Amelia sends wonderful photos of the dogs playing and then sleeping after a fun day at her house. Amelia is very friendly and provides detailed messages about how our dog is doing. It is clearly evident that she is an expert with dogs and they are a central part of her life. We always feel 100% comfortable and confident taking Roxy to stay with Amelia.
Amelia and her family were so wonderful and Jolie had a fantastic time! We will definitely be booking again soon =)
Amelia takes such good care of all the dogs that stay with her. I always know my puppy is in the best of care if he just stays a day or overnight for a long weekend! I am so happy we found her and I know our puppy is too.
Amelia was so friendly and accommodating to a last minute booking. Her house provides a lovely, dog friendly atmosphere. Magnus came back and slept solidly for 15 hours, which is always a sign that he had a wonderful time playing.
We love using Amelia to look after our dog!!
Our dog is only 6 months old, and Amelia and Bailey have lots of patience & kindness to show our dog.
Our dog, runs straight to their front door and never bothers to look back!! Our dog is tired for the rest of the day, and really chilled out the next day, which is great, as puppies have loads of energy!!
I can't recommend Amelia enough! She is a genuine dog lover through and through and she took fantastic care of our puppy! This was the first time we had ever left our dog overnight and Amelia put all of our concerns to rest, giving us thorough behavior and picture updates each night. Our pup not only enjoyed Amelia's TLC (which included a bath!), but absolutely loved playing with her beloved Bailey and the other fun boarders. It's clear that our doggie misses his new-found friends and we will be happy returning customers! Bailey's Best Buds definitely deserves five stars! Thanks Amelia!
Amelia and her family were wonderful hosts for our dog, Brody. She sent thorough updates and adorable pictures daily. Amelia is concerned about safetly and makes sure all dogs are compatible during a meet and greet. They have a large yard with tons of toys- Brody was exhausted upon his return home!! We would highly recommend Amelia!
Amelia is amazing! We had her and her dog friendly family watch our Cashew pants for over a week while we went on our honeymoon. Not only did Amelia hold a spot for me when she had a cancellation, knowing we were in a bind, but I'm pretty certain Cashew didn't want to leave when we came to pick him up! He became fast friends with their sweet, mild mannered puppy Bailey, and got to play with other dogs visiting nonstop. Amelia sent pictures and updates every single day and was so easy to plan with. Cashew had his own amazing little doggy vacation and is probably wondering when he gets to go back and play!
Amelia and her family are such warm and welcoming people, and took amazing care of our dog while we were on vacation! Amelia sent us detailed updates of our dog's day-to-day activities including several photos. She ensured that our dog was eating regularly and getting the necessary exercise and rest, and she even went out of her way to give our dog a bath! Our dog had such a wonderful time at Amelia's house, and we are sure that she will be excited to go back any time that we go on vacation in the future. Thank you Amelia and family for giving our dog so much love and care while we were away! We enjoyed our vacation more knowing our dog was in good hands.
Our dogs had a great time at Amelia's place! Our dogs were well cared for and relaxed in her home. I loved the daily pictures and being able to see how much fun the dogs were having. They are already booked for another stay with Amelia. Highly recommend!
How sweet it is to have wonderful people like Amelia and her family to care for our beloved pups while we are away. You couldn't ask for more from Amelia! She treats your doggie like they are her own: lots of attention, play time, and love. Our girl came home with a perfect dog smile and very exhausted. All the pictures Amelia sent were reassuring that our pup was in great, caring, capable hands. We will use Amelia again and again.
Amelia and her family were amazing! Our pup, Charlie, just got back from his vacay and I can tell he was well taken care of and had a blast! Amelia sent us an update on the fun they were having as well as a lot of great pictures. Their dog Bailey was also very friendly and playful with Charlie. When we picked Charlie up he was sparkly clean after the bath Amelia gave him! 5 star service!
Roxy’s stay with Amelia and her family was outstanding. Amelia sent numerous pictures of Roxy playing at the end of every day along with a full report of how she was doing. Roxy ended up being an escape artist and Amelia went through the trouble of reinforcing her fence. It was so nice to hear that Roxy was having a good time and to see the beautiful pictures. Amelia’s love and kindness for our dog went above and beyond!
I feel so confident when I drop our pup off to spend the day with Amelia and her family. The pictures she sends is a nice reminder of the great time Suki has every time she spends the day playing with the new friends she meets at Amelia's.
Amazing! We wanted to bring our pup to a place where she would thrive and we picked perfectly. Not only is she having a great time playing with Bailey, she feels loved and secure and I could not feel more comfortable with the care she is receiving. Thank you!
Amelia was wonderful with our pup. She took great care of him (including giving him a bath) and sent daily pictures and updates. We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience with Amelia and are extremely grateful to her and her family. We are sure our boy is going to miss having another dog around, so I guess we'll just have to plan another getaway in the near future. Thank you!
Amelia and her family are truly remarkable! She welcomed our pup into her family along with 4 other dogs. Amelia clearly understands dogs and can easily handle 1 or a pack with no trouble. She went the extra mile and gave my pup a bath before returning her to us after a 5 day stay. I was a little apprehensive when I learned there would be 5 dogs, but this soon passed after receiving the daily updates with pics and learning that our pup was doing great. She carefully evaluated the dogs that would be staying with her to ensure they would get along and fit in with her young family. Her experience, knowledge and great care of our pup will have us returning to her for our next trip.
Amelia provided the perfect place for my dog to stay while we were away!! I was at peace knowing my dog was in such good hands. It was evident that she truly loved and cared for my dog the way that I love and care for my dog. She cuddled him and gave him extra special attention. I would recommend Amelia to anyone! We will definitely use her again! Thank you Amelia for taking such good care of our dog Copper!!!
Amelia and her family were incredible. We were a little nervous as this was our first time ever leaving our puppy, but after meeting Amelia and her family we couldn't have felt better.

She sent us lots of good pics and he clearly had a lot of fun. They were also flexible with us when our flight was cancelled and we got in much later than expected.

It was just a great experience overall. Thank you again, Amelia!
Amelia and family were great. Very caring place for my dog. Sent pictures of the little fella, which was great because my father was in the hospital and it was his dog......the pictures made him smile and that made me feel especially good about my choice to call Dog Vacay.
Amelia and her family were fantastic! They took amazing care of Strider who loved playing with Amelia's dog, Bailey. Amelia sent frequent updates and pictures, took Strider for walks and even gave Strider a bath, cleaned his ears and brushed his teeth!

A truly outstanding experience! I HIGHLY recommend Amelia and will definitely be using her again! :-)
Amelia and her family were SO great! Her house was open and inviting for our dog. She has two sweet girls and a playful pup. We will definitely use her again!
Kaya and Leica loved spending time with Amelia and family. They have plenty of space for the pups to run around and are super friendly people that we can trust. We even received photo updates while we were out of town.
We will definitely ask them to host our pups again!
