About Amber

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, my name is Max and my job is to keep your dog company while you are away (as long as I’m invited of course)! I am a 10 year old lab/collie mix (or so I’m told). My favorite things to do are play (especially with friends), eat and sleep. My human and I recently moved to the area from Maryland where we took all my dogs friends into our home while their people were traveling. We are currently staying in a town house so we are currently only offering in YOUR home overnight care. I love going on adventures and visiting/meeting new friends!

Amber is my human and I decided she was mine about 9 years ago. I’m glad I picked her because we have a lot of fun together! We are always going fun places and meeting new friends; it’s really obvious that she loves all creatures because we’re always going somewhere to take care of them! We’ve visited dogs (of course), horses, ducks, chickens, cats, fish and even a tarantula once (she wouldn’t let me play with him though)! Amber also used to work as a veterinary technician, so she knows what to do if I (or my friends) hurt ourselves or are not feeling well. Because of her medical background, she does require that all pets are current on their Rabies Vaccination for everyone’s safety. I hope that you will consider us to help take care of your furries (or non-furries), I would love to meet you and them!!

---------------------------------------------------

You can rest assured that your family member will be well taken care of while you are away. I have been caring for pets for the past 15 years and take pride in so many people trusting me with their beloved family members. My main focus is to ensure your pet(s) have a safe, comfortable and fun experience while you are away. I pay special attention to instructions given, specifically for medications, feeding and/or any “quirks” your pet(s) may have. Every attempt will be made to make your pet(s) are as happy and comfortable as possible in your absence. I have various references available upon request.

Emergency Care: For emergency situations, your pet will be transported to the nearest veterinary hospital and you will be contacted immediately. I also require your regular veterinarian’s information for this same reason.

AMAZING client care - I left my dog with Amber for 7 days and received notifications from her that gave me comfort in knowing my dog was being loved and taken care of...I almost worried he wouldn't want to come home - his vacay looked as good as mine! She has a natural knack with pets and treats them as if they were her own; I would highly recommend Amber and will look forward to a very long relationship with her...she really is AMAZING!

Amber is awesome. I am totally at ease with having Amber at our house. My furry critters love her soo much. She truly has a gift and I would recommend her to anybody.
From the moment we met Amber, we knew she would be the right person to depend on. She and her dog Max stayed and took great care of our three dogs, leopard gecko, turtle and fish.
