About Amy

My Dog Vacay profile is currently inactive on the Dog Vacay website as I am taking a prolonged hiatus from dogsitting due to a busy work schedule. (Though I'm keeping my profile in case that changes!) However, I do occasionally work with existing clients from my more active Dog Vacay days, so if we've worked together before, please feel free to get in touch. Thanks!

My dog, Beulah, has stayed with Amy before & had a great experience. Was super accommodating with getting her to/from her dogvacay stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others ;)
Amy was fabulous as always! Very flexible with pick-up and drop-off times, and always happy to see Tea, which makes me very happy! Love love love leaving my baby with Amy - even when I now have friends/neighbors who will do it for free!
What can I say? I have used Amy before and she is awesome! I feel she really cares for my dog, who is not the easiest dog to deal with. When he is with her, I know he is in the best care he can be when I am out of town. My dog is special needs and she takes the time to listen to my concerns and craziness. :) The wagging of my pooch's tail when he heard her voice made me feel better about leaving him for a few days. Thanks again, Amy!

Amy is such a wonderful dog sitter. Her love for dogs made me feel so comfortable leaving my hyperactive 10 month old puppy with her for 5 nights while on vacation recently. I received multiple pictures and texts daily, helping me know that he was in great hands. I would highly recommend Amy for your dog's next vacay!

Amy was more than I could have asked for. She treated my dog like she was her own and I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with her.
Amy is awesome! Linus, my old and wise shepard mix, loved his stay. He went on lots of walks, to the beach (it was still warm then), to a picnic where he got to play with lots of other dogs and to the dog park. Amy sent pictures along the way so we knew he was having a ball. I couldn't have been happier with her!

I adore Amy, and so does my babe (dog) Tea. The last time I left on vacation and went to drop Tea off with Amy, Tea went running up to her door, tail wagging. Tea is so much more spoiled with Amy than even with me, and I love her to death! What I pay to have Amy watch/hang out with Tea is really nothing - the peace of mind I get knowing my girl is MORE than well taken care of is worth twice as much. Amy is awesome awesome AWESOME - your dog will love her.

Amy was great! You could tell she genuinely cared about your pet. She also took pics and sent updates via text which was nice. I would highly recommend her!
Amy was amazing! She was flexible, caring, attentive, and took such good care of my pup! I would definitely recommend her, and look forward to having her dogsit for me again! Thanks Amy!!
Amy took care of Kaylee for four days and nights. We did a meet-and-greet before the vacay and were very pleased with Amy's kindness and attentiveness to the dog. Kaylee can be anxious and barky, but she was very relaxed and loving around Amy. She got multiple walks each day and a couple of dog park visits while we were gone. She looked great and very happy when we picked her up. We were pleased to receive texts and a couple of pictures while we were gone. We'll definitely work with Amy again.

This was our 3rd time having Amy watch our dogs - she is so good to them (probably better than we are!). The girls have so much with Amy - and by the time they come home- they are completely worn out. Best dog sitter in the WORLD!!
Amy was very enthusiastic to meet our 2 terriers. She was very sweet with them. We received photo and text updates as promised. Was great to see the dogs relaxing with her as well as getting exercised.

We were a little apprehensive having them stay in an apartment as they are used to a house with a backyard but they seemed very happy when we picked them up.

Great experience for all of us!

Amy was fantastic! She took great care of my Toby while I was gone. She sent me photo and text updates daily. My dog is mostly blind and was on medication during his stay with Amy and she handled it like a champ. I will be using her again the next time I go out of town.. I'm pretty sure Toby misses her already.

Amy, thanks again for everything!

Amy was a fantastic dogsitter, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone! She was attentive, sent me picture and text updates, and Lucy seemed happy and well cared-for when I picked her up. It was apparent she kept Lucy active and engaged, and I felt super comfortable leaving her with Amy.

Thanks,
Jenny

This is the second time that Amy has watched our boys for us. She does a wonderful job with them. I am so glad we found her through DogVacay! Our dogs are getting old and are a little fragile, but Amy is sweet and patient with them. She is also good about keeping in touch so we know all is going well. I trust her completely. Last time we left, we were gone 10 days and I didn't worry once about the boys! As long as Amy is willing to watch our little guys, we will continue to ask for her.

Amy did a wonderful job taking care of my dog while I was a a conference in Minneapolis. She kept me up to date and I could tell that Cody was happy as can be. It was nice not to have to worry about him while I was in meetings for 2 days. Thanks for the great care - highly recommend.

Amy was wonderful with the dogs. We enjoyed the picture updates and felt comfortable that our furry kids were being well cared-for!
Amy was wonderful!! She is a dog lover and I left knowing that my dog would be loved. It was a huge relief to not put her in a kennel with occasional human attention and a lot of other stressed out dogs. I am pretty sure Beau had more fun than if she had stayed home with me! Any dog that stays with Amy is a very lucky dog!!

Amy was fantastic! Her energy and enthusiasm was a perfect match for our young lab/golden mix. She took excellent care of our dog and provided regular updates/photos while we were out of town.

Amy is definitely a "dog person," and was a delight to work with. We felt at ease leaving our pet with her, and would for sure do it again.

I am so happy to have found Amy! She is the best dog sitter ever! She seemed to bond with my dog Tea right away and sent me pictures and updates all through the weekend. I have never felt so relaxed boarding Tea before - I could tell she was having a great time with Amy and that Amy was taking care of her just like I would - probably even better! Tea got to go to the dog park, the beach, and even a parade! I will definitely contact Amy again if I need a dog sitter and I highly recommend her to anyone else who wants to leave their dog with a real dog lover.

Amy was absolutely wonderful to our dogs Princess & Casey! We met her a few days before hand (on really short notice) and she was so nice and friendly. She sent us pictures throughout the weekend (it was our first time using a dog sitter we didn't know) and let us know they were doing great. It was wonderful to know our dogs were in such good hands and that we didn't have to worry about them....she took them for walks and played for them. It was great, as when we got home afterwards, our dogs slept the whole night from such a busy weekend!! I would recommend Amy to anyone who is looking for a dog sitter where their dogs don't get along with others - simply because she doesn't have a dog of her own, but takes exceptional care of others! Can't wait to use her again!
