About Amy

I am an approved foster parent of Poodle Rescue of New England which gives me the credentials of a safe and loving environment for your special family member. I decided to start watching other people dogs after doing it for so long for friends but most of all I would never want to board my own boys in kennels I would want them to be as comfortable as possible in someone else's home if they couldn't stay in their own beds. I have two small dogs of my own who are very well adjusted to other animals. They have full access to the house when I am home but are confined to downstairs while I'm at work. I work Mon-Fri 830-5 but it is a block away and I come home at lunch everyday for lunch and playtime with my boys and whoever might be visiting. My yard is completely fenced in and safe for your doggie to roam freely, no cages just love and fun. Please feel free to inquire with any questions.

Amy was flexible with drop off, which made the process easier. Our pup seemed happy to be there. They were accommodating of his old hips. Disappointed that they are not boarding at this time.
A huge Thank you to Amy who was so super sweet to our dogs. Amy is totally experienced and knowledgeable regarding dogs. We felt so relaxed knowing our dogs were in Amy's hands. Thank you again and Amy is such a find.
I have used Amy many times...and can not say enough good things about her..my Bichon comes home happy and not stressed....read my other post...I have nothing bad to say about her...
Great experience with this Host! I was desperate for a last minute reservation, no one was getting back to me, and Amy stepped right up. Her custom quote was very reasonable, she was very accommodating, and my Chloe had a wonderful time at her home. Chloe made fast friends with Simon and Max, and even transitioned from using indoor pads to eliminate to only "going" outside (likely following the pack's lead). Amy texted pix and was available to talk with me when I called also. I was nervous leaving Chloe for 4 days - I have only had her for 6 months and she has in the past displayed some separation anxiety - but she was just fine! Thank you Amy, Simon, and Max! I will definately book them again!

Thank you Amy

Amy is totally tuned-in to dogs. Our dog is kept safe and secure. She's allowed access to the living areas of the house and there is a fenced yard where she can exercise or just lay around. We've boarded our dog with Amy before and feel sure she is the best. We have complete confidence in Amy. Thanks, Amy!

I can't say enough about Amy, She is so caring and
treats your dog like her own...I have a 7 year old Bichon, Ralphie..they are fussey dogs they don't like being separated from their owners...but he came back from his stay with Amy, and he was one happy dog. She sent me updates, photos, and videos, which made me happy .
I would leave Ralphie with her again, It is good to know, when I go away I have a great place to leave him and know he is being well cared for.
Also she had to give him meds for his mouth and that was also done.
What else can I say but thank you Amy I appreciated all you have done.

Juno enjoyed her second visit with Amy and again, we could not be more pleased in having Amy help us out when we go out of town. She takes great care of the pups and thankkfully she is very reliable and honest!
Amy is very flexible with our schedule, Franco's meds, my concerns, etc. She couldn't have made it easier to deal with.
Amy is just awesome. Juno I believe really enjoyed her time at Amy's. It was nice to have piece of mind while being away and trying to enjoy our Thanksgiving vacation. We def. will be using Amy again and I would recommend her 100%!!
Amy was a wonderful Host for Dash. He thoroughly enjoyed himself with Simon and max. She sent us updates during our trip. We have left Dash with Amy three times now and we trust her completely with Dash. It is like Dash's second home and he absolutely loves it.

I would highly recommend Amy to anyone. For ONCE I was able to go away and feel completely comfortable knowing my rather difficult but sweet dog would be taken care of. There is just no substitution for piece of mind. Thank you Amy!!
Amy is the first person, that found connection with my picky Yorkie. If you have small doggie with 'big' temper- Amy is the one whom you need!
I was very nervous to leave my dog Sable for the first time. She is new to my family and was on medication as well. I'm so happy I was able to find Amy through this web page. Our meet and greet really put my mind at ease. She has two great dogs that are used to new faces and did a great job making Sable feel like part of the pack. Amy even sent me text messages to let me know how Sable was doing. I would have probably spent my time away worrying about my dog but instead was able to relax, knowing she was getting the same care and attention she would at home. Thanks again Amy!

Alfie and Tootsie had a great weekend with Amy. They were relaxed and content when we picked them up after 3 days. I have already made another reservation with Amy, this time for a week. Gay W.
Amy was so easy to deal with! While we were away she sent us pictures and videos of Anubis! It really put our minds at ease while we were away. This was our first time leaving Anubis and I was not worried at all. She brought her on day trips which Anubis loves and Anubis got to make a lot of new friends. I know that we can use Amy again and not have to worry! We really appreciate everything she did for us!

It was the first time in 11 years that we boarded our dog so we were nervous looking for a dog sitter, but Amy made us feel very comfortable leaving our dog with her. She has great experience and inspired our confidence. Her fenced yard is a plus and her own dogs are well-behaved and used to visitors. She kept in touch with us by email and photos. We didn't worry about our dog for the entire trip knowing she was in the best of care.

Amy was great with our dog Myles. She cared for him just the way we do at home. She sent some great photos to us while we were away, so we could see how he was doing.

Amy is friendly and I enjoyed talking with her at the Meet-and Greet, she put me at ease about leaving Myles with her and I would leave him again anytime, and I plan to!

I'm really happy that I decided to leave Aurie, my 2 yr. old rat terrier w/Amy and her family. After our meet-n-greet, I could tell that Aurie would have tons of fun with the 2 other dogs and in closed yard. There was lots of space for her to run around and play. I could also tell that Aurie would receive the love that she's used to with my family. Amy was also great at accommodating a last minute reservation change.
