About Amy

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We've been dog owners/lovers all our lives. We adopted Sam, a Golden/Lab who is very friendly a few years ago. We recently adopted Chloe, a 10-year-old yellow Lab. We live in a beautiful rural foothills area. We have a five-foot secure fenced front yard that has a dog door into the house.

We have an additional back yard that is five acres fenced at 5 feet. All guests can be off leash. We walk with and supervise the "kids." They can all run freely in the "dog park."

We've had a lot of families with pets needing eye drops, ear washes or oral meds. As well as special needs diets. We've been able to accommodate all needs.

Just bring your dog's food and meds. We can provide everything else

Convenient to the Morrison, Evergreen and Conifer areas of Colorado. If you're in Denver, a thirty-minute drive provides your dog with its own vacation spot.

I would be pretty nervous about leaving my pets with a "stranger." So, come for a visit and check for yourselves!

To ensure that I am available for your schedule, please try to make sure that your pick up and drop off times are as accurate as possible. We do require 12 hour's notice. We are flexible and will work with unforeseen events/travel complications.

Amy was an excellent caregiver for Sadie! She was thoughtful and honest and let us know everything Sadie was doing. It was certainly reassuring to know she was in such capable hands, and that she was truly in tune with the dogs she cares for.

We really appreciate her thoughtful and concerned care. Our challenge will be to get Sadie the wonderful walks and the social time with other dogs in this cold weather!

Too many dogs for my taste. Her updates were impersonal when I did get them and she even sent me a photo of a dog that is not mine. Hard to enjoy my vacation when every update sent was about how misbehaved my dog is!! She even went as far as to offer training suggestions to me! My dog is completely trained already!! She is a trained service dog!!!! This was my second time with Amy and we will not use her again.

Amy provided daily updates with pictures that let me stay informed as to how my dog was adapting to her vacation. Amy is very knowledgeable about dogs and has a great home to host dogs.
Excellent, as always.
Both Rambo and Dozer had a great time and were well taken care of during their stay.
We have been reluctant to kennel our Lab, Katie, because she is shy and quiet. Amy overcame that fear and Katie was "at home" in her house for 2 weeks. We will be back!
Amy was great! I have never left my dogs at someone's house before, let alone someone I've never met. I contacted Amy and she immediately put me at ease via email. Once we were there, I was impressed with how she was with all the dogs. And when we picked the girls up the next morning they were pooped! I highly recommend Amy T.

Amy always makes sure my dog is as comfortable as possible and that she gets plenty of exercise and play time. I will continue to use her for daycare and overnights.
Amy is terrific! She is very mindful of watching the dogs to make sure they interact well. Cloey loved the personal attention and it was so nice to know that Cloey was having a great time and not home in her crate waiting for us.
Our dogs had a great week with Amy. Lots of outdoor time and other friendly dogs to play with. Amy is consistently highly rated and booked for a reason- she's the best!
Amy was an excellent choice. We got much more than expected. It was the first time our basset hound was away from home and she was kind of a mess, but Amy gave it her all and Maddie straightened out. Amy took extra time with Maddie ( far more than others would have for the price}. Maddie is still in the puppy stage and acts just like one, but Amy was great with her. She sent us emails nightly with progress reports. Maddie enjoyed it so much. I would highly recommend Amy. I know I will use her again

Tag + Opie, our 2 Shih-tzus, 13 years old and 21 months, stayed overnight for a trial visit before we head to Hawaii in Sept.
Amy is incredibly experienced and confident. She is also loving and caring! Her home is clean and comfy. The yard is perfect for running and playing.
Jon + I are thrilled to have found Amy.

Amy was great! She sent photos and emails to let us know how Bea was doing. Bea was soooo tired for a whole day afterwards, so she must have had fun playing and running in Amy's big yard.
Very professional, easy going and responsible for our dog. This place is absolutely beautiful and worth the drive into the mountains. Our dog was in good care and Amy was great at communicating everything and I knew I left Jade somewhere reliable. Will definitely be coming back! Highly recommend

Moose is always happy and exhausted . Amy is the best!
Amazing space for dogs to run and play! Amy sent photos of Harley each evening to fill us in on how he spent his day.
I couldn't be happier with Amy and the care she gave my dog. I have never boarded a dog before,so I was quite nervous and I was also nervous for my 1 yr old puppy who had not stayed away from home. Amy was so good about updating me each day on who he was playing with and what he was doing. It was such a relief to know he was in such good hands while we were gone. He had a great time. I will definitely use Amy again.

Amy was awesome with our dog roxy and is very caring and passionate about what she does
Amy T and her Five Acre Dog Park facility are great. I used to board my two American Eskimos at their vet, but they no longer offer that service. I was desperate as I will be attending my son's wedding out-of-state and did not know where else to turn. Fortunately, I was referred to Amy by my personal trainer. Amy goes above and beyond in any capacity she can. When you contact her, she responds immediately. She worked with my schedule for a meet-and-greet, as well as for setting up a time I could drop them for a full day to test the waters. My dogs do not get enough socialization, so this was a wonderful opportunity for them to play and they came home well-exercised (tired). Amy's expertise, professionalism, personality and ability to quickly figure out what works for my Eskies is very important to me. Thanks to Amy, I will be able to board them with confidence, as well as I plan to utilize the doggie daycare more often.

Amy was absolutely wonderful with my dogs Maggie and Tubbs. They have never boarded before and she took excellent care of them. We received daily updates and they have been practically comatose since we returned home from all of the running and playing they did. I feel completely confident that she cares for them as well as we do. Thank you so much!

Moose is always well cared for and exhausted when we return. We will continue to request Amy for our vacations.
I felt comfortable fro the first moment I met Amy and my dog settled in quickly I could relax and enjoy my time away knowing she was well taken care of and loved
Amy was wonderful!! In the past we have taken our pup to a boarder - she was out of a crate all day and only it in at night, but for a dog who has never had to be in a crate, this still was not ideal. Amy has an amazing set up with a ton of space for the dogs to run and play, and also a very dog-friendly atmosphere inside so the dogs feel very "at home". She took wonderful care of our pup for a long vacation in April and sent us email updates on how things were going. She definitely has great experience and is so easy to work with. Our pup can be pretty shy and we knew she was in good hands. We will absolutely be using her again in the future :)

Amy is great! Our dog, Dooley, loves staying with her and we consider her home his 'home away from home'. We know that he is in good hands when we travel - getting lots of play time and loving.
Amy is a true dog person; and was totally wonderful with our somewhat neurotic Jasper. Plus the property is unbelieveable for dogs that needs some space to roam. For a mountain location it's way more convenient than it looks, by the way. Really just about 15 minutes from 285/C470. Absolutely recommended.

Amy was great with our 2 dogs. One of them had difficulty fitting into a new household/pack but Amy was patient and stayed the course and finally had him (literally) eating out of her hands. And she sent reports on the dogs each day, keeping me well informed. Her place is in the country with 5 acres and the dogs get great walks around her property each day as well as lots of personal attention.

Everything was excellent, as always.

Amy is the best! My two dogs love staying with Amy and running around on her large fenced in property. She keeps me updated and gives them plenty of love and attention. She has really helped me on travel changes and is so sweet and flexible with when we pick up and drop off. I feel so happy leaving my two girls with her.

We have a large Great Dane named Fezzik and he has some specific needs. Fezzik is a dog that is too big to pull, so you have to command him. This is often hard for many to grasp, but not for Amy. Amy was wonderful at figuring out what his needs are and how to handle him. We left him at the start of the week with Fezzik begging to come home with us and not be left. We picked him up happy to see us, but definitely not anxious to leave. Fezzik was also listening to Amy without hesitation in the same manner he would to us, which is definitely a first for dog sitters in our experience.

We had a great experience boarding our dog with Amy! She was very flexible with drop off and pick up, and kept us up-to-date with how our dog was doing during our absence.
Wow! Amazing! Terrific! Our dog's were so incredibly happy at Amy's. They come home tuckered out which is always nice! We also loved her communication. Best ever!
Our dog Mila stayed with Amy this weekend. She had a great time! As soon as she hopped in our car she passed out which is always a good sign. Amy was responsive and sent us a photo and email to let us know how Mila was doing. We will definitely be bringing her back again!

What a relief to find Amy, who loves my dog! He had never been boarded in his 6 years, and we were worried, but Amy and her other dog guests made him feel right at home.
Our pup had the most wonderful stay with Amy!! As soon as we brought him there we could tell he felt right at home. She has the most fabulous HUGE 5 acre fenced in yard. When our dog came home after his stay, he was utterly exhausted from all the romping around he was able to do! While he was glad to see us, I think he secretly wished he could have stayed in doggy heaven...AKA Amy's house. I highly recommend choosing Amy for your doggy's vacay. She treated our dog as her own, was very professional, communicated with us quickly regarding the details of our pup's stay, and even sent us an adorable picture while we were gone. We will definitely be choosing Amy again!!

Amy was a superb host for Kuba. He developed a torn toenail 2 days before we left and she took great care of it, and was on the mend when we returned. Doesn't need to see the vet. Her pictures of Kuba that she posted gave us a lot of reassurance. I'd recommend her to everyone. Great setting in the CO foothills and a huge fenced in back yard for the dogs to exercise. Gene Pflum

Jackson had a great time.
We have reviewed and highly recommended Amy previously for our two beagles, after this last visit we can't say enough about the care she provides.
Roughly a week before we were scheduled to leave the country and drop the pups off with Amy, we sadly got the news that one of the dogs had cancer. At that point the symptoms were minor and our Drs advised that this was probably very slow moving and she would be fine to stay away from home for a week.
The day after the pups arrived at Amy's our little girl got worse. She had accidents and developed new lumps. Amy was incredible with her, she emailed us tons and did all she could to examine and give us info on the new lumps. She even emailed the oncologist with us to aid in describing the new lumps and how our girl was feeling. Amy took amazing care of her and our other pup for the remainder of the week. There is no other place I would have wanted our girls, especially while being sick.
Sadly, just over a week after we got home we lost our little girl as the disease progressed faster than any of us imagined. Amy has been emailing to check on the pups and us ever since we picked them up.She has been through just about every situation with dogs and has been a tremendous support through all of this. For her to care so much for our dogs while there and continue to care so much after they leave her house speaks volumes.
Amazing home away from home for any four legged family members!!!

Amy does it once again! Louie spent more time with Amy on vacation than our actual vacation! He came back exhausted from playing with all his friends. We always trust Amy to care for Louie as if he is one of her own . As much as I hate to tell people about Amy and her wonderful place (for fear she books up and we cannot get in) I want my friends and coworkers to know that their pets can be safe, and happy when they stay with Amy. Thank you Amy for being so good to our boy (with his counter surfing and all)!

As always, our dogs enjoyed their stay with Amy! Thanks for taking good care of them. They miss you already! #yaydogvacay
Jasper had another wonderful stay with Amy! Being a 13 yr old shepherd he is slowing down a little...that is of course until a young guest arrives and he thinks he is a kid again. He is worn out before nightfall and repeats the process the next day. Amy is great at sharing the antics of your pet-kids, and massaging aching hips at night, which I know Jasper loves. I would not take my dog anywhere else.

Amy not only has a dream property for a dog she also sends these amazing, poetic updates on their days! We felt like our dogs were having the time of their lives!
Look no further, Amy is who you want! She is warm and loving towards your pet. I never worry about Jasper, because I know he is in good hands. Amy will email you with cute stories about your pet's antics and send photos. Jasper is 13 yrs old and has a few challenges, but that doesn't stop Amy from taking him. He loves Amy, and as his pet mom, I like that; it makes leaving him for 10 days a little easier. I honestly can not say enough about Amy.

Another great visit with Amy for our Dog Ryder. It is so lovely to get such great (better than great actually) care at a really fair and affordable price. We already have another trip booked and have booked Ryder in at Vacay. For anyone wondering if they should try this place, my advice is don't hesitate.

Thanks to Amy we had a very relaxing vacation. Love the updates about his care and shenanigans! You can't go wrong with Amy!
When we decided to go on a vacation for the holidays we wanted to make sure our doodle Remy was not only in good hands but was having a blast while we were away. Amy's place was just that!

Remy had his own ideal vacay while we had ours. Lots of supervised outdoor activity, plenty of fur friends, and 2 wonderful hosts that took great care of him. (And also kept him in line, I think he is behaving better than when we left him ;))

Amy sent emails every day as well as, as I like to call them, "proof of life" photos so that I could relax and enjoy my time away and NOT worry about Remy.

I highly recommend Amy as your host. You won't regret it.

Amy definitely makes my dog feel like she's right at home. I have a pug who is more of a "people dog" than a "dog dog" and Amy has accommodated her every need. She gets nap times, lap times, window time, and lots of loves. Amy is very flexible with scheduling and making pug feel right at home. I couldn't have found a better place to watch Pax pug!

Amy is great, reliable, dependable, personable and very great with dogs. Our first experience was exceptional!

I love the fact that she is very quick at responding, giving you updates and flexible. Will definitely bring our little one back very soon!

I would recommend her to anyone that has a dog sitting need. She lives in "a dog paradise" :)

Nothing but the best care for our dogs. Thanks Amy!
Can we clone you, Amy? We need more people like you to care for our dogs. :)
My dog has stayed with Amy several times leaving me completely confident he is in good care, thus able to really enjoy my time away. She answers quickly if I send an email. Updates are sent throughout my pets stay- even a couple pictures!
He enjoys here big yard and kind hospitality.

Amy was so wonderful with Barney while we were out of town! Amy sent us daily emails and picture updates of Barney that made leaving him a lot easier! Amy was also extremely accommodating with drop off and pick up times and was very flexible with our schedule. Thank you Amy for taking such great care of our pup!

I could not have asked for a better place to drop my pooch off while I would be out of town. The property is awesome, very safe and secure, and really, any dogs dream. It was also immediately apparent that Amy is a true dog lover - she is not just doing this work for income. The daily status updates, often with pictures, were also very appreciated. I will 100% be bringing my dog here anytime I need to travel.

We have two older pups and we do not worry at all when they are at Amy's. She sends pictures and email updates. Great place for furry friends!
I just moved to Colorado, I've always had family to watch over my son, Jakson when I'm unable to take him with me. Luckily I discovered DogVacay and Amy T! She had great reviews and an awesome property, Jakson felt very comfortable during our meet-and-greet and Amy seemed very knowledgable of the dogs she's had, so we tried her out, he's been twice now and comes home exhausted! It's so nice to leave knowing my baby is taken care of. Thanks Amy!

Our dog have 4 nights with Amy and we could not have been happier. We know he loved it because he fell asleep in the car 10 minutes after leaving.

It is such a relief to us knowing that our 4 legged baby is not only been well taken care of, but also loved on and exercised (play time). We will definitely be back!

Amy and her dog park are absolutely wonderful. My girls weren't the easiest due to some seperations anxiety issues but Amy kept me completely informed of how they were doing, good and bad. I'm hoping the girls can get used to me being gone so we can have our go-to dog sitter! She was also accommodating of our raw diet and need for some meds to be given. A++

Amy did a great job taking care of my pal. He came home happy and healthy. i did love the photos and updates that I received on a regular basis with little anecdotes from the day. Thank you Amy! Highly recommended.
Always a fantastic experience! From flexibility to communication, Amy is always great to work with and my dogs love her place too!
Nixie always has a great visit! She comes home tired and happy.
Great!
We love having Amy watch Tibbers! She truly seems to care about the dogs there. Will be back, for sure!
My dog always has such a wonderful time at Amy's. I know that he is in good hands. He loves to play in her huge backyard and play with his friends. Thank you Amy for taking such wonderful care of Ben.
My two dogs went to "camp" while my husband and I were out of town. It was the first time the youngest dog had ever been away from us since we adopted her a year ago. Both dogs came back to us healthy, happy and ready to take naps because they clearly had a wonderful time. We so appreciated the daily pictures and email updates about both dogs and the flexibility in when we dropped them off and picked them up. In fact, they even came home with some behavioral improvements, playing nicer with each other's toys and bringing the toys all the way back to us for playing fetch. My husband and I had been trying to get the older one to bring her toys all the way to our feet instead of dropping them 4 feet away and to teach the younger one to play nice with her older sister. What a surprise to see they both cooperate better! Thanks Amy!

There really isn't a better feeling than being on vacation and knowing that your dog is in a safe, friendly and caring environment. I'm pretty certain he gets just as spoiled at Amy's house as he is at home. No two dogs are the same and I appreciate that Amy allows my crazy and demanding dachshund to be himself. Based on her stories, he makes himself right at home.

I know Amy gets a lot of larger sized dogs, especially with having a larger yard, but my small dog loves it there. I can't imagine leaving him anywhere else! Five paw review!!

As always, it's a good experience all around with Amy! We left Zig with her for 10 days and he made a friend/ soulmate, Ben. Amy always has dogs there that fit well as a pack, and we feel confident that he is very happy when he's there! Already planning his next vacay back!

Amy is so awesome! She takes such great care of my senior German Shepherd as if he were her own pooch. Jasper loves Amy, and I never worry about him while traveling. I really appreciate the emails and photos I get of the sweet things he does with her other guests. She has been taking care of Jasper for about a year now and I HIGHLY recommend her!!!
Read More...
Amy was the best. She emailed us daily and sent pictures. Both dogs came back home happy!
I like the email updates Amy provides while I am away. They sure are tired when they come home so the hikes on her 5 acres are great for them. A very nice facility, especially for dogs that love the out of doors like our labs do.
Louie came home exhausted as ever--looks like he made several new friends and was totally happy at the ranch once again. This is the longest he has ever stayed (17 days) but we new he was in great hands with Amy...Thanks Amy, he enjoyed his vacation as much as we were able to enjoy ours!

Another great visit! We will miss her when we move. :(
Juneau & Summer had a fabulous time! Amy is very responsive and keeps me posted regularly with pictures and emails while I'm away from my kids :) Highly recommend!
We love Amy! She truly cares about the dogs who stay with her. Love the pictures she sends, too. Makes us feel that he's happy there!
This was our dogs second stay with Amy. My 2 1/2 year old GSD was in all her glory with all the freedom to run, play and explore. She had plenty of playmates to keep her happy, engaged and exercised.

My other dog is a 15 year old blue heeler/australian shepherd mix and needs a more nurturing, caring and quiet environment.

Amy provided the best care for both of my dogs. She was attentive and thoughtful in providing special care and attention for their specific needs. I really appreciated the daily text messages and updates as well.

Amy is a true dog lover and her experience and thoughtfulness in caring for our dogs was greatly appreciated.

We left Lottie (our 3 year old GWP) with Amy whilst we were on vacation overseas for 3 weeks. After a 2 day trial earlier, we knew that she would be happy there - and she was. She was excited on arrival; spent three weeks making new friends and chasing small creatures; and we get a better reception after returning home after 3 hours than we did when we collected her! We got regular update emails from Amy and photos, and felt that she was safe and well looked after.

With us Lottie is walked off leash for at least an hour a day, so finding Amy's place with such a large fenced and interesting play area was perfect. We toyed with getting a pet sitter at home, but would find it hard to give someone the responsibility of Lottie (off-leash) for such an extended time. We also work from home, so she is used to having someone around for a lot of the day.

Thanks Amy - we'd love for Lottie to visit again :0)

We left Lottie, our three year German Wirehaired Pointer, for two days as a short trial before a three week stay later in the summer. She loved it :0)
Amy is awesome. She sends us pictures and e-mail updates daily and always let's us know what Tango is up to and how he is doing. We are truly grateful to have someone we trust watching over our little buddy.
We've been taking our dogs to Amy's for a year now! They seem to love it every time and this one was no exception. Medications and all, Amy takes care of it. Thanks!
Our thanks to Amy - she always does such a nice job to make our dogs feel comfortable and at home. When it's time to pick them up, they never have that "kennel stress" in their eyes. Just happy to see us. Have already booked another stay over the holidays.

Amy has been taking care of my dog for about a year, and frankly, I wouldn't go anywhere else! She has created a very homey environment for her guests. I love the fact that my sweet guy gets to sleep inside her home on a comfy bed rather than in a kennel, or confirmed outside of earshot in the event something were wrong with him. I am especially thankful for this as my dog is a senior. I never worry about him when I'm traveling. Amy does a fantastic job at sending updates and pictures. Amy is patient, caring & very loving and I highly recommend her!!

Awesome! Louie loves to go to Amy's--he gets excited as we turn off 285 and he knows exactly where he is going!
Our labrador Lukka had a really fun time at Amy's place. She was in great hands and we are very thankful Amy took such a great care of our dog. We will definitely be back.
Amy T is the BEST. Max loves his visits.
It was Daisy's first stay and it seems like she really enjoyed herself. I will definitely bring her back.
Our family had a wonderful experience with Amy. This was the first time Sandy had stayed with anyone other than family, so we were nervous. The meet and great made us all feel comfortable. Amy had excellent communication before and during Sandy's visit. Sandy was happy, healthy and clean when we picked her up. We definitely recommend having your dog stay with Amy!

Always great.
Our experience with Amy was outstanding! She e-mailed us each day with an update about how Fanta was doing, and sent some great pix. It was wonderful for us to know that our doggie was in such a caring, "dog friendly" environment while we were away. Thank you Amy!
Read More...
Amy is great! She was extremely thorough before having our pups come stay with her; making sure she knew all of their medical history and needs. They even went to a meet and greet to make sure it was a good fit for us and her. It was our first time using an out of the home pet sitter and before I made it back home Amy sent a photo which really put me at ease. She was great with communication while we were gone; sending a couple of photos and responding very promptly when I asked how it was going. I am thankful that I have found a nice day care and will definitely be returning! Thank you Amy!

Amy is the best! We love taking Tango out to her place where he has a chance to enjoy the mountains in a big back yard (5 acres!). She is always friendly, down-to-earth, and quite competent.
Amy is amazing! She has a great set up, which allows the dogs to come in and out of the house freely. She adores and cares for Ellie Mae our bloodhound as her own. We absolutely love using Amy everytime we have to leave our pup!
What a wonderful place to bring your dog!
Everything was wonderful and amazing as usual!
Amy-
thank you for taking care of our fur babies when we leave town! It means the world to us that we can feel at ease bringing them to you. You're a true gem and we are so thankful for you!! You love them like we do and that means the world. We love the updates and pics! You're always so willing and accommodating ?? you're amazing! Thank you!!

My dog was pooped out after 2 nights with Amy! I have peace of mind when Ziggy is there and I know he'll get exercise and be cared for! Thanks Amy, see you this summer!
Amy T. and the dog ranch are great. Bailey had a good time!
Amy's home is very conducive to hosting dogs; my pup was in heaven with the 4 acres in the back and the hummingbirds. Amy was very patient with my dog, who quite stressed when I dropped her off. Looking forward to our next dog vacay
Fin had such a great time at Amy's! Boy was he exhausted! Amy was great about doing Check-ins and sending emails about Fin's day, which I loved! Coming from a farm originally, it was nice that Fin could get out of the suburbs and spend a week outside, leash-free! I would recommend Amy T to anyone looking for a safe, loving home for their pet while they are away.

Our dogs had a great time as usual at Amy's house. She was flexible on drop off and pick up times. She also let us know about health concerns she had for one of our dogs who was recently diagnosed with arthritis. I feel like she truly cares about our dogs and I never worry when she has them. Thanks Amy!

As per usual, Ben enjoyed his stay with Amy. He gets so excited when were driving up to her place. Amy takes good care of Ben and she always sends me an email every day regarding his progress. One happy camper again! Thanks Amy!
After a wet and muddy weekend, we expected to pick up Louie and take him straight for a bath. Surprisingly, he was all clean. Thanks Amy, another reassuring jesture that convinces me he is in the best of hands and is well taken care when he comes to stay by you!!! He has been sleeping since we got him home :)

Amy is such a pro. We chose her because of the amount of positive reviews she has and the reason is she earns them. The property was huge and really is a vacation for the dogs. I accidentally gave her the wrong amount of food and she fed them without asking for anything back from me (I was in another country unable to respond to her daily pictures and updates). I gave them a bath when we got back, but they were already clean so she must have done that too. I asked her to teach them manners and she even helped with that! You just can't get this kind of attention and service from a "regular" boarding place. Plus they slept inside on comfy beds, no kennels or anything like that. They came back looking like they had a better vacation then we did. Thanks Amy!

I have a hard time leaving my two dogs at a big boarding facility as I think it stresses them out around so many dogs and people. I always feel comfortable leaving them with Amy. Love her updates and love that she takes them for lots of exercise. They get excited when we are in the car on our way there! Amy is great!

Amy took such good care of our sweet old dog, Sophie. Lots of love and cuddles. Great communication. We just couldn't ask for more.
Another great stay with Amy despite the snowy weather, my boys had a great time!
As always Amy is awesome. Our dog hasn't moved from his bed all day since I picked him up. Completely wore out. He sure loves going to Amy's!
Louie came home from Amy's and slept for 2 days, evidently, he was very busy during his stay and had to come home to rest from all the playtime...Loved the photo updates...No better review than a tired & happy dog!!!!! We will definitely use Amy for our next trip

I have two very high energy dogs that need exercise and do not love going to a large boarding facility with many dogs, so Amy's is perfect! She is very responsive, gives the dogs plenty of exercise, and my dogs are always excited when we pull up at her house. I love the updates she gives and makes me happy to know my dogs are in great hands! I would def recommend.

We just picked up our two dogs from Amy's house. As always, we received daily updates from Amy and everything went very smoothly. She is a pleasure to do business with. Highly recommend!
great, as always.
Leaving you're dogs with Amy is like leaving them with a trusted family member. We have been bringing our dogs to amy for a year or two, our dogs view Amy's house as a vacation of their own.
Amy is the best dog caregiver we have ever had and only person we feel comfortable leaving our dogs with.

I have used Amy several times and each one is great. It is a wonderful spot for a dog with lots of fenced room to run. Amy always keeps us updated on the status of Cocoa during her stay.
We are so thankful that we found Amy. Amy & her husband are true animal lovers who will take care of a dog as though it was their own. Our dog Finn is always happy to be dropped off at Amy's and he always has fun playing with the other dogs. We love knowing that while we are away on vacation, Finn is also having a great time playing with other dogs and sleeping in a regular home. Thanx Amy, you're the best!

Amy is great! We were new to the area and have two older dogs that never get boarded. She took amazing care of them and we will definitely go back!
I was thrilled to find Amy... right down the street! JJ, Juneau & Summer had a wonderful time frolicking with each other and Amy's other doggie guests in her amazing 5-acre mountain backyard. We will definitely be back :)
As usual, Amy was great. She sends updates all the time. My dogs always sleep for 2 days after the spend a weekend with Amy. She always takes great care of them.
Amy was very accommodating and provided great feedback on my small dog while on our trip.
Indy had such a great time at Amy's while I was away. The emails and pictures were so nice to see and hear how she was doing! I know she had a fantastic time running and playing in the yard with the other dogs as she has been sleeping a ton since she came home. I will definately have her stay there again.
Read More...
Despite snow and freezing temperatures my boys had a great time at Amy's place. There was a lot of running through the snow and then cuddling up inside with Amy! She is the greatest.
Amy was great at keeping us updated via email and sent us pics of Ziggy about how he was doing. Her house and yard are spacious and clean. Our dog enjoys playing with other dogs and being outside. Perfect! We will definitely we taking him back!
Our 2 boxers have stayed with Amy 3 or 4 times and they have 2 more vacays planned with her in the next couple of months. We feel 100% comfortable leaving our precious fur-babies at Amy's, and I'm so glad I found her! The picture updates and emails are awesome and the dogs get crazy excited whenever we pull up to her rad mountain home.

I appreciated that Amy stayed in communication with me and provided updates about my dog.
We had a great time! Thank you Amy for giving us a fun vacation at your home. We hope we were good little dogs and that we will be coming back soon. We are lucky dogs to have you for our Vacays! Love, Zara and Pete
My boys were once again treated like family by Amy. They were happy playing outside and snuggling up on her lap inside. Thanks for a great weekend.
We love being able to bring our dogs to Amy's. She is so easy to work with. There's always other dogs for them to play with and the yard has tons of exploring opportunities. Thanks, Amy!
The setting was perfect for my German Shepherd. He had lots of outside space to roam. Amy has two fenced in areas that my dog loved. We will definitely use her in the future. Stephanie D.
Ed seems to have had a great time at Amy's and is sleeping soundly this evening! Amy sent some cute photos while we were away and let us know that he was happy and having fun. We will definitely use Amy for future trips.
Visits just get better and better. Amy is excellent with caretaking and communication. Max loves it there, and we are comfortable knowing he is well cared for!
We have been using Amy for our two dogs for over a year! Amy is the best. She under stands dogs and loved them. Thank you Amy! Dublin and Ditto are sound asleep after playing all week.
Apollo and Luna loved their stay with Amy! Amy is very friendly and makes you feel at ease when you drop your pets off. Her house is large and homey with lots of room for your dogs. All the other dogs were friendly and are well taken care of. The yard is also great. They slept for almost 24 hours which means they must've had an awesome time. Thanks amy!
Read More...
I had a last minute work trip and Amy was so accommodating with my schedule. Her house/land is wonderful and my dog had a blast. She (my dog) obviously had a lot of play time because all she wanted was a nap when we returned home! It was great. Thank you so much Amy.
Read More...
Amy's dog ranch was just great for our dog. 5 acres fenced in the mountains was perfect. She send e-mails and pictures daily which was really nice as we missed our dog!!
We highly recommend her and hope to use her again.
Thanks
Diane, Ed and Bailey

Gus had another great stay! This was Gus's 4th time staying with Amy this year and each time has been great. Gus is always happy when I drop him off. If your looking for a dog sitter amy does a great job!
Amy was wonderful! Our two dogs had a great vacay at her place. I felt very comfortable leaving town knowing they were in her attentive care. She made sure my energetic younger pup had plenty of outdoor playtime and provided plenty of comfortable spaces for my older dog to just relax, nap and take it easy. She was diligent about giving daily meds to my older dog and was so thoughtful in sending us e-mail updates about their daily activities, etc.

Will definitely call on Amy again for doggie vacay.
Read More...
This was Bailey's 4th stay with Amy and he was instantly at home, romping with the other wonderful dogs and pressing Amy for rubs. We just can't imagine a better place for our outdoors-loving, active, playful Golden, and have recommended Amy and Dog-Vacay in general to many friends. We're always (tongue-in-cheek) surprised when he doesn't complain about coming back home with us, as he has such an awesome time at Amy's.
Read More...
Amy was able to accommodate my two rescue babies on short notice for a 5 day stay. These dogs are bonded, and have never been 'boarded' traditionally before so this home environment was sincerely desirable for me to ease them into this- didn't want them to think I left them forever as they'd been left in shelters before.

Seems they had a good stay- played more with each other than other dogs but this is not surprising. The one mishap is that my Jackson (or Jackasson- as Amy dubbed him) unfortunately urinated frequently INSIDE of Amy's home. This was horrifying to me as I never would have left him knowing he'd do this. Now that we're home, I've taken him to the vet and turns out he's got several issues going on related to this- so hopefully Amy might accept him back NOT in rare form ;)

Thanks for your patience and understanding Amy! And SORRY AGAIN for the piddle mishaps!!!
Read More...
Amy was amazing! My dogs were happy and warm during their visit. And they made some new friends and well as had some lap time with Amy.
Second time that our pup Mia has stayed with Amy, and it is quickly becoming a 'home away from home.' We love getting the daily emails with reports on activities and photos from Mia's day. Brings such peace of mind that she's having a great time while we're away. Thank you Amy!!
Read More...
We would recommend Amy to anyone looking for a vacation for their fur baby. She has an amazing property geared toward all dogs, plenty of space, and a wonderful complimentary personality to be around dogs all day. She is so great!
Amy watched our dogs for the week while we were getting married. She was so attentive, caring, and a wonderful second home for our fur babies!
Our dog Winni ...a husky mix, had a short stay with Amy... and 4 other dogs. She had a great time chasing chipmunks! It was wonderful to receive email updates during her stay including a telling pic of a very happy dog...tail up and a big smile! Thx so much Amy!

What I like about Amy is that she is relaxed, she loves dogs and has created a wonderful home like environment for her guests! I had been wanting to kennel my pooch with Amy for a while, but she is always booked. Now I know why! If you're looking for a place where you will feel secure about leaving your canine child, this is the place to go!
Read More...
This was our second time having out pups live the dream at Amy's house. We could not have asked for more - the dogs are well taken care of and literally, we had to drag them out of the house because they felt so at home there. We have already booked them again later this month. Thanks again!!
Read More...
Jackson had a great time as always.
We really like Amy and would take our dogs there any time! The outdoor space is awesome and the dogs get to run around the house, too. I can tell they just love it! She is very easy going and easy to work with.
Our small dog Pippi just returned from her third stay at Amy's. Amy is great at keeping us updated with how Pippi's day is going and all the friends Pippi meets. We know Pippi has a blast and is safe when she goes on vacation at Amy's. She is excited for her next visit! Thanks for always taking such great care of our baby!
Read More...
We are so happy we found Amy through Dog Vacay. We got updates all weekend and we knew they were in good hands.

Our dogs had a blast; one actually didn't want to leave when we picked them up! :). We will definitely use Amy again whenever we go out of town.
Read More...
First time at Amy's. Our guys had a great time. Went to bed early when we got home - think they were all tired out from playing.
great space for the dogs and very flexible for pick up. this place is perfect for your dog if your going to the red rocks for the night!
Once again our 3 four babies had a wonderful time with Amy T at her great mountain hideaway. We had a 2&1/2 hour drive home after picking them up and all 3 slept peacefully because they were all tuckered out. Rinnie was beat from all the squirrel chasing and the 2 little ones were tired from the excitement and playing. I think all 3 would have been happy if we'd Judy left them there. Thanks for taking such good care of our kids!
Read More...
Third time with Amy T. As usual, daily reports and a pretty happy dog at pick-up. She treats my dog better than we treat her! Thanks Amy
Our dog Kady spent a week with Amy T. This was the best boarding experience we have had in 16 years of dog ownership. Kady was able to sleep on her bed in a living room as opposed to a cold kennel. She got to spend plenty of time outside having the freedom to go in and out through the day. She went on walks with Amy around Amy's beautiful property unleashed, which meant the freedom to play with others and run! As Kady is an only dog, and seems to relate better to people than other dogs, I was comforted to know Amy and her husband would be with the dogs giving belly rubs and talking to them all day. While on our vacation, we looked forward to the daily pictures we got of Kady and of Amy's "update" emails letting us know how Kady was doing. These updates are truly Amy's words and not some corporate template blowing smoke. I don't think we will board anywhere else. The drive to Amy T.'s is worth it for us and for our dog's happiness. Lastly, the cost...better than nearly any other boarding facility in the area.
Read More...
Pippi got back from her second stay with Amy and friends, she had a blast! She loves meeting other pups and being able to play and run around inside and in the large outdoors all day. Amy kept us updated everyday with pictures and letting us know how Pippi was doing. Pippi will be going back on vacation at Amys again in a few weeks and she is excited!
Read More...
Amy is fantastic, as is her property. She is located outside Conifer and has an awesome hilly and tree filled fenced property for the pups to play (two areas - a smaller front yard and acres out back). My favorite thing about leaving my dogs here is they are not kenneled at any point. All dogs have free reign of the house and sleep on dog beds in the living room.

Amy sends notes (and sometimes pictures!) of the dogs daily. One of my dogs had an upset stomach while visiting and Amy cared for her like I would have, additionally she kept me updated via email throughout the day.

I will absolutely be leaving my dogs with Amy in the future.
Read More...
Amy is the perfect dog person! She understands and cares about your pet. Her prices are reasonable. I'd recommend her for sure. Carla K.
Amy took great care of our pup over Labor Day weekend! We loved getting email and photo updates of her time at the ranch. We'll definitely be sending our Mia up to stay with Amy again!
We have left our Lab, Jackson, with Amy on several occasions, and he had a great time as always.
Amy was absolutely great with our 2 golden retrievers. It is hard to leave your dog but I knew we left them in good hands. I was relaxed the whole time. I got daily updates which made me feel even better. I looked forward to the update every day. Both of the dogs had eating issues and Amy went out of her way to give them extra things to make sure they weren't hungry. We will be using Amy anytime we travel.
Read More...
Gus had a great time during his two week stay. We had no worries while we were away. Amy is great. This was Gus's third trip to Amy's.
This was the first time I had ever left my puppy for a "long" period of time with someone I didn't know very well. Amy made the experience virtually painless. She updated me daily with emails as well as sent pictures to document Baloo's adventures. She made me feel comfortable with leaving him for the first time which made me feel confident that he was also comfortable and having a good time. When I picked him up I knew he had just as much of a vacation as I had. I booked Baloo with Amy for every planned trip I have for the rest of the year as soon as I returned from my vacation.
Read More...
Haven't picked up our dog just yet, but with awesome photos and updates, anecdotes regarding his antics, etc.we looked forward every day to reading our e-mails! He sounded like he enjoyed himself so much, I know he will be bummed to leave. Our thankx go out to Amy for her patience and humor!!!!!
Read More...
When we're leaving town, I go straight to see if Amy is available because we know our Portuguese water dog will be happy and well cared for. Thanks Amy!
Gus had another great stay. Gus came home happy, healthy and tired. We had no worries while we were gone. Amy does a great job!
Our two boys stayed with Amy for a week and they came back exhausted and happy. Amy gave us daily updates and a few pictures as well. That was a comfort seeing as it was their first time staying at Amy's. The main reasons we chose Amy's: the large, shaded, fenced outdoor space; a limit on the amount of dogs boarded; a prior meet and greet; and most importantly, that the dogs slept on dog beds in her home and not locked in kennels. We would highly recommend Amy's home and will not hesitate to board them there again!

This is my second review for Amy. She is great. She understands dogs and works with the individual personalities. Very comfortable with her and she is very flexible.
Amy is awesome! She takes my moody and insecure Shepard and treats him like a king. I get pictures all the time and updates on his behavior. I have found a true gem of a dog sitter!
My dog has stayed with Amy many times, and had a wonderful vacay in the mountains. Amy is reliable easy to communicate with and has a nice set-up for dogs to run.
I found out more about my dog and her interactions with other four legged friends than I ever knew before. Amy was great - I received daily information and she was so on top of things. Her observations were right-on. Remmy looked great when I picked her up, not stressed out or upset but very fit and healthy and excited. Her stay was great for me and great for Remmy!
Read More...
Our experience with Amy was great! She is more than accommodating. She took great care of our two Standard Poodles, and made sure they were always comfortable. She gave them special treats and lots of attention too.
And we appreciated the email update and photo she sent.
It was a great experience overall, and we definitely will be boarding our dogs with her again in the future.

As always, Sonny and Charlie enjoyed their trip to Amy's house! We weren't sure what time we were going to pick the dogs up on the way home, but Amy responds quickly to her messages and is always flexible. Thanks Amy!
We have left our black lab, Jackson, with Amy several times. I can tell by his reaction when I drop him off that he loves it at her place. She does a fantastic job.
Pippi had a great time at Amy's vacation spot! She enjoyed playing in the large gated yard and meeting new friends. She came back happy and tired! She will loved to go back soon! Thanks!
Duncan thoroughly enjoyed his stay at Amy's. He had fun playing and running with the other dogs and we really appreciated how Amy kept us updated every day on how he was doing. We will definitely go back when we travel again.
Amy is amazing! Our rescue pup is a bit nervous with new people and she warmed right up to Amy and her fabulous property. She is thoughtful, attentive, and gives great updates. Amy - please start a dog blog - it would go viral ;)
We were referred to Amy from a friend who used this service. We have a 4 year old Golden Retriever that we have only boarded once at a kennel for a week (where he got an eye infection), so we were happy for a different option. We appreciated the chance to meet with Amy beforehand at the "meet and greet"... and we loved getting the updates/photos from Amy during our vacation. She was super fast with responding to any of our questions/e-mails. Amy did a great job helping Hunter get along with the other dogs, considering he has very little experience "living in a pack" for 10 days. She was also great about dealing with all of his mischief (like counter surfing, etc!). We also appreciated that Amy was very gracious when I needed to add an extra day to our reservation, due to the fact that I miscalculated our return date. Overall, it was a great experience.
Read More...
We love Amy and Guinness loves Amy! This trip he got to stay for 10 days. I have to admit I was nervous being away that long, but he just settled right in. This trip he had some smaller dogs to play with (and share the couch with).

I love all the notes and photos while I'm gone. I know he's in great hands :-)
Read More...
Amy T is awesome! Our dogs had a great time and we felt very comfortable leaving our dogs in her care. She has a special connection with all of the dogs. We will definitely be using her services in the future.
My pups love going to Amy's place! For my two pups to come home tired is always a blessing! We wouldn't go anywhere else.
Amy did a great job with my high energy dog. He got to go for 2 walks a day, and had lots of playmates, which he loves. He came home happy and tired. He can't wait to go back in June!
We were very happy with our experience at Amy's. Denali had friends to play with everyday, she got to play in the house and a generous fenced yard. I would definitely use her services again and I will pass on positive review to a couple of friends who wanted to hear about our experience. Denali looked happy healthy and exhausted when we picked her up.

This is the perfect place for our dog while we're away. Matilda just loves being there. It's her home away from home! Thank you Amy!!!
Amy was so great to my pups. She is my go to sitter!
Great experience. They were tired, so they must have gotten plenty of good exercise. Will definitely use Amy again. They seemed very content when we picked them up.
I drive all the way from Boulder to take my dog to Amy's before heading off to DIA. This is the only place that I trust to keep my dog. I really like the great outdoor space and also appreciate the constant updates. Glad I found you Amy!!
Amy T is the best. She was great with Ben and really does provide the ultimate mountain getaway for dogs. If Amy T will have him, Ben would certainly like to go back next time we can't take him with us.
Amy was wonderful with our older dog Abby. We can't think of a better place to take her.
Our Saint Bernard, Gus, had a great time at Amy's. This was our first time leaving Gus and Amy exceeded our expectations with updates and pictures. Gus had a blast. We would recommend Amy for anyone looking for a sitter.
Our German Shorthair Lutz is a high energy dog that needs the open spaces. We contacted Amy when traveling to CO for business and loved what we saw when we arrived to leave Lutz for two days. We will leave Lutz with Amy again next year. Thank you for making our business trip worry free.
Read More...
Nixie came back happy, as always!
Amy, thank you so much for taking such good care of Rocket!! I also loved all the updates you provided! Rocket loved your property and had a blast!! We will go back many times for sure. Thank you so much! Deb
Our dogs had a wonderful visit as always! Thanks Amy!
Amy was great. She has a perfect set up for visiting dogs. Her fenced 5 acre yard is the best exercise area that my dog has ever had while boarding. Amy sends frequent email updates and photos for anxious dog owners to keep up with their pets. Amy clearly enjoys her various dog visitors and treats them more as guests at a B&B than business clients. I have boarded various dogs at several different kennels over the past 35 years. Amy's Dog Vacay is by far the best option. I will definitely use her again.
Read More...
Amy took great care of my poodle when we went away this week. It is clear that he had a great time playing with the other dogs, as he is exhausted! I appreciated getting the email updates as to how he was doing. I'd definitely ask her to watch him again.
Read More...
Nixie had a wonderful time at Amy's house! She came home exhausted! Amy sent photos while Nixie was there. I would definitely recommend Amy!
We took a trip out of the country recently and needed someone to watch our 10 year old, very needy dog. We found Amy and I am so very glad we did. We had a lovely meet and greet and were comfortable leaving our dog with her. Amy is a dog lover! She sent us daily emails about how our dog was doing, along with pictures! A few days into the trip our dog hurt herself (she goes crazy outside when she has room to run) and Amy went above and beyond what I expected. She took such great care of her, treating our dog like her own dog! I would highly recommend her! We will absolutely will be back to see Amy. If you need to leave your pet, Amy should be your first choice. Thanks Amy!

Once again my boys had a wonderful weekend with Amy. They found a way to her lap often during the day. And even though some rough weather moved in they were able to play and take a nice walk outside before the snow stopped them. Once we were home it was clear my dog Ted was missing Amy and all her love and care. Thanks for taking such good care of my boys!

Faira was happy to be back at Amy's.
Amy was a great host to both of our pups. She welcomed our dogs into her home with open arms. Her residence is in a great secluded area with plenty of open space for the dogs to explore. Amy proved to be well versed in dogs of all breeds and sizes. I felt very comfortable leaving our dogs with her because she understood the needs of both our large Great Dane and our tiny pompous Miniature Pinscher. While we were away I was delighted to receive both email updates and photos as well!!! We picked up our two dogs with ease. They were happy to see us and were exhausted for two days...so I know they enjoyed themselves! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a doggie vacay host around the Denver area! Amy is the best!
Read More...
We were very comfortable leaving our dogs with Amy. She updated us each day on how our dogs were doing and sent pictures. The dogs loved her and had smiles on their faces. :) Thanks, Amy!
Our second time with Amy. Everything worked out great!
I don't have a happy dog. He's a grouch to others around him but Amy and her pups bring out the best of him and he always loves being at Amy's.
Amy was great! We will definitely be using her again!
I have a very spoiled yellow lab named Henry and I always feel guilty when I have to leave him behind. However, I felt so comfortable leaving him with Amy. She has a great property for dogs and she is such a dog person - she totally understood that Henry was like our child. Henry seemed like he had a great time and actually moped around after I brought him home so I guess he didn't want to leave. I will definitely use Amy again.
Read More...
Jack & Ted, my toy poodles loved their stay at Amy's . They had plenty of room to run around outside on Amy's beautiful mountain property. Amy is very knowledgeable about pet care and had no problem administering Jack's medication. Her own two dogs were very welcoming playmates for my boys. I highly recommend Amy and her Dog Vacay home.

I'd never been without my 9 month old Labradoodle Koda overnight since getting her in June, but she was comfortable and happy being left with Amy for almost a week. She played A TON and was soooo tired when I picked her up. That was a big seller for me. I love that she had so much space to run and play. She's never gone so long without a kennel or a leash, and I'm sure she loved that! Amy was very flexible on drop off/pick up times, her prices are by far the most reasonable for what you get, and she sent me daily updates of how Koda was doing while I was on vacation. Amy also kept up with the training that I've been working on with Koda and after spending time with the other dogs and with Amy, Koda actually came back an ever-better behaved dog. It's a bit of a drive for me to get to Amy's, but it's so worth it! I'll definitely leave Koda with Amy whenever I need to go out of town.

Our Bailey is a friendly, accommodating fellow and has done fine at the standard doggie camps, but oh what a difference Amy made in his 15-days w/o mom and dad. Getting to stay with a real family, complete with "brothers" Sam and Bear and the other friendly campers was the perfect situation for our 3-yr-old active golden. Amy is the perfect camp counselor - Bailey clearly loved her and we got daily updates and pics to help US feel better about having a great vacation without him. We will definitely be going back to Amy when we travel again!
Read More...
Amy was so accommodating to my schedule; I wasn't sure the exact time I was going to be able to pick up and she was willing to work with me!

When I dropped my pups off Amy and the other dogs that were staying for the night were all very excited to have them, right when I walked in I could tell they were going to be comfortable and enjoy their time.

Amy sent me updates on how they were doing throughout the day/night. When I arrived to pick them up I could tell they were exhausted from playing outside in her huge yard! They slept all the way home and pretty much the entire next day!
Read More...
As an over-protective dog mom to a small dachshund, I won't just leave my baby anywhere. He's quirky, anxious, a pain when it comes to food, and more than just a lap dog... And Amy understood all of it and accepted him for what he was!!

When he refused to come out of his dog-cave and wouldn't eat, she brought him a small treat and gave him special attention in his own space. She listened to all of my suggestions about what he likes (blankets and cuddling) and gave me updates on a regular basis. Although I was just as anxious as the dog was, Amy didn't sugar coat it because I wanted to understand how he was truly doing in this type of environment. I like that honesty!!

The next day, he came out and went for a nice walk/hike and began to play. All the dogs staying with Amy were great and my dog started to enjoy the pack life. I know he loved all the open space and fun things to smell :-)

We are already planning our next get-away and will certainly book with Amy again. I love the fact that my dog has someone watching him that is kind and very knowledgeable about dog behavior. It's never easy to leave him anywhere, but having a safe, secure and fun environment makes me feel a lot better!
Read More...
I found Amy while looking for alternative options to dog kennels for our trip to Cabo this past week. I never dreamed I would find a place like Amy's. It was perfect for our dalmatian and vizsla puppies who need to run around and play all day long. Amy's place is perfect with tons of room to play in the mountians. I will not go anywhere else.
My favorite part was getting notes a pictures every day from Amy about what my pups had been up to that day.
Read More...
Amy is a true gem. She took great care of my dogs and treated them as part of her family. We have reservations for my pup to go back and if he knew he would be so excited!!
My husband and I decided to take a long-overdue vacation recently, but I was very concerned about leaving my not quite 2-year old Chocolate Lab, Lucy. Lucy is an adorable pup who has never been separated from me for more than a day.

I found Amy on the Dog Vacay website. She didn't live close, but I was intrigued by the 5 acre property. I arranged a "meet & greet" with Amy and from the moment I met her I realized I had nothing to worry about. Immediately I knew that Lucy would be in great hands! Lucy immediately ran around the yard having a blast. It was more than a vacation for Lucy, it was canine paradise!

Amy is extremely responsive AND patient with "neurotic" pet owners! She sent me daily updates and pictures. My worry about Lucy's care became a worry that she wouldn't remember me or want to come home!

I would never even consider anyone other than Amy to care for Lucy in my absence - and that includes family members! She and her husband Boko provide a very loving home for the animals in their care. They are truly the "poster children" as amazing examples of what "Dog Vacay" is all about.
Read More...
Amy is more than I could have hoped for in a host - super mellow and clearly a dog lover. She emailed daily updates about how our dog was behaving and getting along with her companions. Having a 5 acre forest as a playground is a definite bonus. I highly recommend Amy and hope she is available next time we go away.
Read More...
Amy did such an amazing job with our dog Remy. He had only ever been to one other kennel, so I was a little nervous to leave him. He came home exhausted and we could tell he had been well taken care of. Amy sent regular updates and photos throughout the time he was with her and I always felt as though he was being well taken care of. Amy was so accommodating to pick up/drop off times and has an amazing location for dogs to run. We will definitely be bringing Remy back!
Read More...
I am so pleased we found Amy to watch Cooper. I've sent him to kennels many times and although he does well there and there are some great day care/boarding kennels, they cannot compete with true love and care for him.

Cooper is a food hound and he did misbehave but Amy handled him as I would. He also got a blanket to tunnel under and a lap to snuggle in.

This was the first time when I picked him up that he didn't go crazy to get home. I am very pleased with the care he got.

Thanks Amy, you're a gem!

Amy is great. We received regular updates over the 2 week vacation along with accompanying photos. She did great with all the meds and specific needs of our big beast. From the daily walks, healthy treats to the love he was shown, we will definitely come back again.

My timid standard poodle just spent three nights at Amy T's house. Zelda was a little nervous but by the time I picked her up she was obviously comfortable and relaxed.
Amy is a true friend of dogs. She is also very caring and fortunately for me, flexible as well. I will not hesitate to use her and her great fenced in wilderness again.
Thanks Amy

We left our big black Lab, Jackson, with Amy for 12 days. I was a little concerned about leaving him for that long, but after visiting with Amy and seeing her location, I knew he would have a great time. It was great getting daily updates and photos showing that he clearly felt right at home there. I will definitely recommend Amy and Dogvacay.com to all my pet owning friends.

Amy was incredible with out 2 English Springer Spaniels. They are brother and sister and each of them have their challenges. Brody has Addison's Disease and must be given medicine everyday. He is easy going but likes to get his sister, Tessie worked up. Tessie is protective of her brother and has a bit of an attitude. From the first meet and great Amy understood her temperament and dealt with her moodiness and insecurities.
Also, Amy was very understanding when our plans changed and we needed to extend their stay and our late pickup because of our plane cancellation. She went out of her way to reassure us that they were well taken care of. She sent pictures and messages everyday.
I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting their dogs to have a happy fun filled doggy Vacay!

Thank you so much Amy for taking such care of Pika. It was great to get the updates while we were away and the photos so that we could see how happy she was. I know she will be very excited to return whenever we leave town again !! I would highly recommend Amy to any of my friends.

Amy did a great job looking after our dog while we traveled.
Can't remember if this is 2nd 3rd or 4th time we've left our 3 dogs with Amy but another great experience. The dogs like getting to her place and don't try to squeeze out the gate with us as we're leaving them so we have no regrets or guilty feelings... that's the best part. Two of our 3 had eye problems and Amy started the drops for us. We'll probably leave them with her even if it isn't 'on the way' to where we're going like it was this time.

Well. This was our first visit with Amy - and it was Emily's (my 1 year old, Black Lab/Bernese Mntn Dog) first sleep over - ever. But, from the minute I met Amy, saw her lovely home, and her way with the dogs, I knew we had found a friend. Now, As for Emily....well, let me just say Amy was soo patient with Emily - and, well, all in all - despite her size - Em is still a puppy, and well, has a lot of energy. Amy and all her other (dog) boarders could not have been more caring - and fun. Thank you!

Amy's place is perfect for my mountain ranch dogs since there are no city noises and lots of wildlife around which they are already used to.
They love her easy disposition, comfortalbe house, being able to go in and out at will, her two dogs and being allowed on the furniture!

Love, Love, Love Amy. She is such a caring person. She has a great yard and my dogs are treated very well. She has put both myself and my dogs at ease during a big transition in our lives.
Amy was great. The setting was perfect. My dog loved it. I couldn't be happier!
I am so happy that Amy took care of my dog. She is incredible! She went above and beyond in taking care of my puppy and I felt at ease the entire time. She is professional, thoughtful and she made me feel at ease. I enjoyed her updates and pictures as well. I have already recommended her to my friends and family.

Do you treat your dog like family? Do you want your dog treated like family when you are away? Look no further! I am an overly-attached father to a 10 year old yellow lab that has been treated like a human since he was born. Needless to say, I needed him to stay at a place that I could trust and that I thought would treat him as their own. Amy's place did exactly this. She is no doubt a true dog lover and her daily updates helped me feel at ease immensely. I would have no trouble bringing my dog back here to stay again.

From first point of contact until I returned from my trip I felt my dog was in good , capable hands. He thrived in his new environment and I was constantly updated on how he was doing. I chose a rural environment because I live in an urban area and wanted the green outdoors and wilderness I knew my dog would enjoy. I think this is a great option for a long stay- the price is right. I will use this host in the future knowing my dog will be happy to return.

We were nervous to leave our two labs with a complete stranger at first, but after our meet-and-greet with Amy, we felt a little better. One of our labs has an eye issue that requires daily medication and our other lab was still just 8 months old, with all the puppy issues that go along with youth. Amy did a spectacular job keeping us updated about our pets while we were with students in Greece. She updated us almost daily and sent pictures as well. As a matter of fact, both dogs came back better behaved! Vinny used to whine for food and Nilla was still jumping and nipping. Both habits are vanished and now when people come to the house we don't have to worry about the labs bowling them over. We are very happy with Amy and her care of our pets!

Amy's place is a dogs paradise. Lots of space to run and lots of friendly playmates. My dog came home happy and was content for days afterward. Amy was great about keeping me updated and with working with my last minute plans. A great place to stay!

Amy and Boko were absolutely AWESOME hosts for our eight-month-old Golden Retriever puppy, Copper. He got to interact with their two friendly retriever dogs, Bear and Sam, along with a few other canine guests. It was definitely puppy paradise for Copper where he got lots of exercise and a ton of fun. Each dog received individualized attention and was very well taken care of based on their owner's instructions. Amy spoiled the canine kids with healthy treats such as apple slices, carrot sticks and baked sliced yams. Amy and Boko would take them on field walks where they got to run and play in a huge space. In their home, they have an "automatic dog door" which gave the dogs the freedom to use it whenever they need to go potty. Copper loved to lie down on their cool stone porch to take a snooze. While we were on vacation, Amy emailed us pictures of Copper and gave us updates of his behavior and adventures everyday. He came back to us tired but a happy puppy. Their boarding prices are very reasonable, considering the wonderful and loving care that the canine guests are receiving. We would recommend them to anyone with a family friendly dog. They exceeded our expectations, and we would give Amy and Boko's K-9 Camp a FIVE-STAR Rating!

WOW, I don't know who was more nervous about being separated, Bear or me? But with Amy's snapshots and updates I really felt confidant that he was safe, sound and HAPPY!

Amy's place is a mountain treasure with everything a dog could want, shade, sun, room to play and shelter!

I'll bring him back with confidence next time and judging from how tired he is, he'll be glad to go back to play again!!!

Mrs. Amy helped me out immensely by watching my pup! I was delighted to meet such a caring person. Lots of space for the animals to run around, very friendly environment, and the two sweetest Retrievers (whom Zuri loved)! I absolutely recommend Amy! Thanks for everything, Zuri and I appreciate the hospitality!
