About Amy

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Think New Foundland, Bernese Mountain dog, Standard Poodles, Leonbergers, Great Danes, Great Pyrenees, Presa Canario, Cane Corso, Rhodesian Ridgback, etc. XL Breed puppies are also welcome.

Hi! I adore dogs and am a former Pet Therapy facilitator at Florida Hospital Children's in Orlando, moved to St Pete, and now hosting again.

While we (my husband) don't currently have our own dog, we are in the search for "the one". We really fancy the XL large breeds, but would like to be able to "sample" what it would be like to live with one, hence this profile. I am currently a foster parent with Pet Pal Animal Rescue.

I only host 1 dog family at a time, with 2 siblings being my absolute max. Your dog(s) would be with me the majority of the day as I work from a home office. As an active individual, they are always welcome to run with me, however, I realize some XL breeds are not suited to run/walk for extended periods of time. Each day can include 2 walks (1 long) or your current routine around my neighborhood plus indoor/outdoor playtime/cuddle time at home, though no pups on the furniture :)

*Because I only take 1 dog family at a time I do not offer discounts.
**Dogs will need to come from a home where they are not allowed on furniture as we abstain from that in our house.


Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!

I can tell that Lacy really loves staying with Amy when Lacy rushes in her door to greet her and promptly takes her usual spot on the floor. Lacy loves her time away and we feel much better leaving Lacy with Amy than we have with anyone else. Amy is highly recommended by us!

Amy was great with our two dogs. Updated us with texts and pictures. Highly recommend.
Both my doodles had a great stay with Amy! She communicated with text messages and pictures while we were away - they even ate their dinner the first night (unusual for them). The dogs were clean and happy on pick up day - I would definitely use Amy again!

Kaiser had a great stay at Amy's house. He had nice long walks and runs every day, which is his favorite thing to do. Kaiser has separation anxiety and Amy was very patient and understanding as he settled in. Kaiser had a good vacation.
Amy is wonderful! Our boy was happy to spend a quiet week with her and got great love and attention while we were away. She kept us updated with messages and pictures and we didn't worry for a moment about his care! I have already spoken to Amy about our next trip and look forward to Diego being in her care again as he clearly came home a happy boy!!
