About Amber

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**please scroll to the bottom to read our boarding requirements. Thank you so much!!**

Starting this exciting business with DogVacay in September 2015 we love what we do!! Having many clients trust us at our home, or me at their home, with their furbabies is humbling and appreciated.

With that said, let me briefly introduce who we are!

My name is Amber and I am a full time veterinary student in Milwaukee. I am also a certified Veterinary Assistant. I have experience with older pups, medicating pups, and young puppies.
I've volunteered at the humane society working as a veterinary services volunteer medicating cats and dogs and giving dogs walks. I was also an animal care volunteer, cleaning kennels and taking dogs for walks. I volunteered there for over 6 years.
I also volunteered at veterinary clinics, emergency animal clinics and I worked at a veterinary clinic. :)

My mom helps me out and is always at home to supervise the fur kids. My mom grew up with dogs of many breeds and even cats too, she has experience giving medication by injection and oral meds as well. She is amazing with making sure all the pups are happy and spends a lot of time giving them the exercise pups need.

We also have 3 dogs of our own; Rocky, Molly and Tao (Tay-O), all are well behaved and get along great with all people and pets. They are also very well trained and full of energy! They have made so many friends this past year!


- We have a large loving clean smoke free environment for you furkids.

-Our furkids have four large baskets filled with a variety of fun toys, and lots of doggie blankets to snuggle with. And of course you are welcome to bring along a favorite toy or blanket of their own.

-NO kennels, NO cages, and your dog is never ever left alone. One or both of us is home. Always.

-ALL pups need to be up to date on core vaccines (rabies, distemper) and must have flea protection on

-We provide a full house and a HUGE back yard that is fenced and provides plenty of exercise space.

- We give healthy homemade treats between meals and lots of playtime and outdoor exercise in our large grassy yard. We look forward to caring for your furbabies soon.

**Boarding Requirements**

Pick up/ drop off policy (boarding in our home only)---- We allow a 3 hour grace period from drop off time to pick up time, after 3 hours we charge for daycare for the pick up date. Example: Drop off time is 3pm, pick up must be before 6pm on pick up date to avoid daycare charge. This is to be fair to our regular daycare clients.

Please bring the following:

-vaccination records showing rabies/distemper and bordetella.
-favorite toys (optional)
-bed (optional)
-crate (optional but if owners crate train or insist, we allow crates)

please let us know if your pup is on supplements/medications, also please let us know if they are house trained or not.

Thank you so much!!!

Wonderful hosts for Jack, he loved it. Backyard was clutch and convenient part of the city. I visited for a few days and they accepted jack on short notice! They are great people and I would definitely suggest to anyone and everyone, if I'm ever back in the area I won't hesitate to call upon them to watch my lil pup again! Great work, thanks a ton.
Barb and Amber are always so great to Addie. And she's always so happy to go back. When we show up she sits on the porch with her tail wagging so fast!
Amber and Barb went above and beyond anything that should be expected of a DogVacay sitter during out last trip. Our 9 month old Bernese Mountain Dog, Sonny, who has stayed with them many times before, went to stay with them for an extended trip while our family was in Japan for 11 days. Right from the beginning, it was clear something was different. Sonny was acting normally, but his stomach was very upset. He had diarrhea every hour on the hour for basically the whole time we were gone. Barb and Amber cooked him a bland diet out of their own pockets, they cared for him, cleaned up after him, gave him medication from the vet, and made him comfortable the whole time we were gone. I can't tell you how reassuring it was to be able to rely on and trust Barb and Amber to care for Sonny when we were 7,000 miles away. Their communication during our trip was crucial to us understanding what was going on and feeling comforted that he was being cared for. Happy to say his stomach is all better now. If you're looking for a caring home away from home in Milwaukee, you have found it. Thanks, so much, again, Barb and Amber.
