About Amelia

My name is Amelia, I'm 38, and have recently relocated to Denver with my boyfriend Alan. We have both owned dogs previously and absolutely ADORE them. We've owned mostly large(r) dogs, but love all doggie joyful souls, no matter what their size.

We are dying to get a dog again but this isn't quite the right time. We have no pets or children at the moment. We are happy athletes and are very active. I work part time as a professional wedding and family photographer so I'm (most certainly) going to be sharing not only photos but videos too.

Our apartment complex won't allow us to host dogs, but I can come to you! I have a flexible work schedule and could possibly work from your home with a laptop should your pup need 24 hour care.

I'd walk them 3x a day (or however often you'd want them walked), we'd take dog park visits, go on hikes, and/or cuddle on the couch.

I have so much love & energy to give (and I don't ever get sick of throwing balls)!

Amelia has been great! She regularly sent updates and pics. I felt reassured that Otis was in good hands and enjoying himself! She also took good care of our house when we were gone. Everything was so clean and how we left it. I'll definitely be requesting Amelia again for overnight stays. She truly loves the dogs and treats them as if they were her own.

Loved all the updates and our dogs loved the attention they received!
Amelia is great. She is prompt to respond and works with your needs. Even though I just started using her I feel comfortable my Otis is in good hands. I find her to be caring, genuine and trustwothy. And Otis loves her already!
Amelia did a fantastic job. The dogs were healthy and happy, we received daily updates about how things were going (including pictures!) and the house was spotless when we got home. We'd definitely book with her again!
This was our second time booking with Amelia. She's great with our dogs. She's so caring and makes sure they are happy. We always feel comfortable leaving them with Amelia. Definitely recommend her!
Amelia was amazing! We could tell our pups were very happy. She kept us updated on how they were doing during the trip. We will be using her in the future for sure!
Amelia has been watching our dog Jake for the full two years that we've been in Colorado. She is simply amazing with our dog. Jake loves when she comes to the house. She plays with him all the time and sends some fantastic pictures. Our family will totally recommends that you give Amelia a try you will never be disappointed. If you want a recommendation ask Amelia for my phone number. She is wonderful, caring and very trustworthy.

Amelia is great! My dog is very high energy and a little nuts but she does a wonderful job with him. I work long hours and he's usually ready to run when I get home but on the days she takes him for his walk he's always very relaxed when I get home and I know he got a good workout. I highly recommend her!

Amelia is the ideal doggy sitter! She is loving to our anxious, sensitive dog, and an extremely conscientious house sitter. She sent us daily photos and updates while we were on vacation, and left our home clean and neat. We are so thankful to have such a dependable companion for Ginger when we are gone. I can't recommend her enough!

Amelia is wonderful! When we got home our dogs were super happy and didn't want to leave the guest room (where she stayed while at our house). We have two young Labs who are high energy, and Amelia made sure to get them lots of exercise and kept us updated with texts and pictures on how things were going. She took such great care of both our fur kids and our house while we were away. We would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Amelia is great! She has helped me with dog care and cat care in my home (with some being very last minute!). It is nice having someone you can trust to come over and give your fur pups some loving and let outside when I can't get home. Thanks Amelia! We will be using her again.

If I could give Amelia 10 stars I would. My mom and I were nearly out of luck finding a dog sitter for our trip when I came across Amelia. From the minute she walked in the door, our babies could not have loved her more! The peace of mind she gave us on our trip was priceless. Her frequent pictures and updates were wonderful and so appreciated. The house was in perfect condition as well when we got home. We have 3 dogs, from a huge 100 pound baby to a little 6 pound baby and a 17 year old cat! All were very well loved and happy. I would highly recommend Amelia and will use her again and again!

Amelia is wonderful! She is great to work with, trustworthy, and took amazing care of our 1.5-year-old chocolate lab. She went above and beyond to make sure our pup got good exercise. She sends frequent updates and pictures, which we loved. We could not be more grateful for or happy with Amelia and would recommend her without hesitation!

Maggie, my one and half year old Lab, loves Amelia! I can see her smile in the slide show photos. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my fur baby! Thanks Amelia for always taking great care of her!!!
Amelia is a dream dog-sitter! My pups responded so well to her immediately that I felt at ease leaving them with her. She took great care of my two puggles and the house while she stayed over. The adorable photos she sent me made me smile and reassured me that they were well loved and cared for. Thank you, Amelia!

I wish I could give Amelia 10 stars! In all honestly, I was quite anxious about hiring someone to watch our dogs that wasn't a friend. We don't have any kids so our 2 doodles are our kids and are definitely treated as such. We met with Amelia prior to hiring her and she seemed like a big dog lover and quite sweet so we hired her for a 3 night stay in our home....and I have to say, it was one of the best decisions we've ever made!

Our younger doodle, Wembley, is pretty sensitive and gets sad/down when we leave them, even for our friends. Amelia asked for different ideas on ways to make her feel better and kept trying until she finally got Wembley to come out of her shell. She even noted how she went under our kitchen table to give Wembley some love when she was hiding out and feeling sad. This is something I thought only I would ever do for my dog!

She kept us updated on how both dogs were doing and sent us the cutest pics and texts throughout the stay...and a few times a day, not just once a day, which we loved.

I feel like she went above and beyond to make our dogs happy and to make us comfortable. She even took them to Chatfield Dog Park - their most favorite place ever:)

The day after she left, we kind of felt like our older, more easy going dog was a bit down...we think she missed her newest pack member!

We will continue to work with Amelia any time we leave town. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!

I travel often for work and it's hard for me to leave my dog behind. Amelia has been a life saver in watching my dog. My dog is always in a good mood when I come home and it only shows she was well cared for. I love the photo updates! Amelia is great and easy to work with. Highly recommended!

Excellent!
Amelia does such an awesome job walking out dogs. We use her at least once a week. She is extremely flexible and even responds on short notice. I know both Marvin and Nesta adore her because they are always so happy in the pictures she sends me. Sometimes I wish I was home to see their excitement when she walks in the door. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for dog care.

Amelia does a fantastic job walking our dogs. We have 2 dogs and she definitely makes sure they both get love. Amelia has taken both dogs on several walks now, and every time I come home from work they are so much happier. Amelia also does a great job following specific directions. Our dog Nesta needs special instructions and Amelia takes the extra time to make sure everything is accommodated for her. Amelia is also very flexible. I can see that she wants what's best for our dogs. Honestly, I couldn't ask for a better person to care for our little babies. She is the best!

We love her! She is very kind and great with my two dogs. Having a newborn aka no time, my dogs where used to beach walks, hiking, dog parks, dog daycare, etc. She has definitely helped my two dogs get more walks then what I can do at the moment. They're always tired and happy after the walk. I would highly recommend her. She'll send cute pictures too!

As always Amelia was wonderful and Kaiyan Peppa was happy when I got home. I know she's in great hands when I leave.
Amelia was so great!! she sent pictures and updates when she was at the house!! I so appreciate everything she does for us.
Amelia did a great job walking Axel and giving him a lot of love. It looks like they had a lot of fun in the park. She sent me pictures and a detailed update of their time together.
Amelia is wonderful! She helped us to feel comfortable about leaving our pups and home in her hands while we were away. I received status updates and pictures to see how much fun they were having together. I could easily tell that our dogs, Barley and Mac, were having a great time with Amelia. Job well done, I would highly recommend her to anyone on DogVacay!

Amelia was great with our two dogs! I like that she will come stay at our house vs us having to take the dogs somewhere else. You can tell Amelia just loves being around dogs and takes wonderful care of them. She even walked them for us the morning we were coming back to town. They were happy and tired when we got home. Will definitely book with Amelia again!

Amelia was GREAT!! It was so nice and relaxing knowing KaiYan was in good caring hands during the cold weather. She kept me updated and sent a picture (which made me very homesick ;) ) I would recommend Amelia anytime.
Amelia was great! I'm an ... overprotective, let's say :) ... dog owner, and she was accommodating of my dogs' particular needs (meds on a specific schedule for one of them) and my need to be totally aware. She sent some great pictures and checked in regularly, and I came back to a house full of healthy, happy, worn out puppies. I cannot recommend her strongly enough.
