About Amy

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
***IMPORTANT: For the safety of my cats, please pre-screen your dog with felines before requesting a meet or a booking. Your dog MUST BE CAT APPROVED ALREADY***

Please check my calendar to view my available dates for you and your pooch!

------------------------------------------------
When making a booking, please let me know when you'd like to drop off and pick up so I can plan around it! Thank you!
-----------------------------------------------

I am a huge dog-lover, and my 7 year old field lab mix (I recently said goodbye to my best pal, my white Labrador Bella) has enjoyed years of heavy spoiling. I've previously fostered over a hundred dogs when I volunteered for 7 years with Lab Rescue and I currently foster for Homeward Trails Animal Rescue.

Whenever I have a guest dog for a few days, they just join right in. We go for walks, play ball in the back yard and everybody gets equal amounts of quality snuggle time.

We live in a 3-story TH with a small back yard. I work for myself so I am home all day and enjoy life a lot more. Even though I'm home now, the dogs have their own doggie door into the back yard so they can lounge around on the deck in the sun and terrify the neighborhood squirrels. My dog Roscoe is used to a revolving door of guests.

IMPORTANT NOTE: we do have 2 cats, so your pooch must behave him/herself with the felines. Aggressive pursuit of the cats can't be tolerated, because it stresses the cats far too much. The cats are indoor/outdoor and need to feel safe to roam freely.

Amy is awesome! She is so reliable, caring and treat my dog like her own. Leo stayed with Amy while I was away and I knew he was in a good hands. And she also send photo updates too. Highly recommended!
Simba stayed with Amy for almost 4 weeks and we did not have to worry a bit about him because we knew he is in good hands. We got so many pictures and videos from Amy which we loved, and the pictures definitely showed that he was having a very good time under Amy's care. Thank you so much. It would have been so difficult without you.

Amy took good care of Finn again. Appreciate the updates and photos!
Amy took good care of Finn again. He was happy and appreciate the photos!
Thank you so much, Amy! Raja had such a great time, he was sad to leave. I am a bit of a helicopter mom with him, but I knew he was safe in your hands. He can't wait to visit and have a blast again. Thanks!!
Amy was awesome with my dog. I felt completely comfortable leaving my pet with her. I would highly recommend Amy she is great with big dogs and sent pictures all week. I am not sure who had more fun on vacation me or my dog!
Amy is by far the best! It's so nice to be able to go away on vacation and know that my dog is in such good hands. Amy is a true dog lover and treats them as if they are her own. She also sends pictures and keeps me updated when we are gone which is very nice. My dog is always happy to go to her home and has a great stay while she's there. I highly recommend using Amy if you need a sitter.

Amy was so awesome! She took in our dog super last minute and was so flexible with our schedule! When beau got home he ended up napping for hours so he had a ton of fun! I even heard they let him sleep in the bed and cuddle! So thankful for someone taking care of our dog like I would! I will definantly recommend her and will be working with her again!
P.S She sent tons of pictures and made us feel totally at ease!

Thanks for a super Vacay for Charming Amy! I loved the photos you shared and Charming had a great time with you and new doggie pal Finn. :)
Once again, I have to say that Amy is an excellent host. Our dog, Phoebe, came back absolutely exhausted from her week with Amy so I'm sure she had plenty of exercise. I can't imagine using another host and I think that consistency as well as Amy's expertise with dogs has really helped Phoebe with her separation anxiety.

I was on the site to talk to Amy about an upcoming reservation and I saw a note that I still needed to write a review from our last visit. Amy is remarkable! Her communication is always so pleasant and our dog, Phoebe loves the attention and company of her other dogs.

Amy is the BEST! She is loving, caring, funny and has fun with the dogs! I have a ball obsessed Border Collie is a bit neurotic :-) and Amy just knows just how to handle her. I needed a warm and loving place for my rescued pup and I hit the Jackpot with Amy!!!!

We love getting pictures of the dogs with Amy, she is amazing. We try to use her whenever she is available!! Oh and the dogs still love going there!! They run right inside... I think it more a vacation for them than us... LOL!!
Cant say enough good about Amy. The dogs love her, and we love that they have doggie beds, no cages, and outside space to play. !!!!
Amy is great. Bailey and Mason love going to her house. Mason seems sad that he has to leave somedays... :) highly recommend.
I have lost count of exactly how many times Amy has helped us out by watching our precious pooch, Phoebe. Amy is an excellent host - she communicates well and is so pleasant and positive in all of our interactions. I would not hesitate to board Phoebe with her again and again.

Amy is really great! I have a dog that is a bit shy and nervous around new people and she did great at Amy's. I never had a worry from the moment I met her. I knew that she would be a loving patient person and just right my dog. I'm so glad that I found her!
Thanks Amy!!

Amy took great care of Finn during his stay-cation with her. Sent me great photos and videos during his stay and updates. Finn came home happy and tired from such fun! Can't wait to stay again! :)
Amy and her pack are awesome!! Will definitely book her again. Thanks, Amy!!
Amy is the best! Our dogs are always so happy to go to Amy's and are always happy and content when we pick them up. Amy truly provides get care for the dogs she watches. Plus we love getting the picture updates while they are in her care.
This was our first time with Amy and it was a great experience! We have 2 large dogs so putting them in a kennel is far from ideal. Being in Amy's home was just what they needed to feel relaxed and happy. She sent us alot of great pictures and took them on a nice, long walk. We will definitely use her again and highly recommend her. She's GREAT with dogs and it's obvious how much she loves them all!

We've now used Amy three times and I would not hesitate to book with her in the future whenever we need boarding. I'm so happy we found her! Our dog, Phoebe, has separation anxiety and I know she would not do well in a traditional kennel. Phoebe has always returned as happy as she was when we dropped her off so I know Amy is treating her as her own. Amy also always responds to messages promptly and regularly sends photographs/updates while Phoebe is in her care. Amy is truly dog lover and, although we have never had any issues, I'm confident she could handle anything that arose. She also went out of her way to accommodate a very early morning drop off - which I appreciated considerably.

Melvin ALWAYS has a blast with Amy & her doggies! Melvin got plenty of exercise and fun playtime with Roscoe & Bella! Amy sent several photos of Melvin's activities. Melvin had so much fun, we were afraid he wouldn't want to come home after his visit.

Our second time leaving our black lab with Amy and another great experience. Our pup always comes home tired from all the activity and play while at Amy's. She sent great pictures of them going on walks and playing allowing us to see our dog was clearly happy and having fun. You will never use a kennel again after you see how happy your dog is at Amy's.

This is our second time with Amy. She is the best. Though we miss him during our time away, we knew that he is having a good time too with Amy and her pups. Thank you again Amy.
Amy is truly amazing! Our two labs, Bailey & Mason, had a great time. Our dogs were relaxed the entire time they were with Amy and her dogs. Receiving the picture updates during their stay was very nice to be able to see that everyone was doing well. We plan to have Amy pet-sit for us the next time we go out of town.

This was the first time we had to leave our 7 month old puppy and he couldn't have been in better hands. Melvin had an amazing time with Amy and her doggies. She sent daily photos of his adventures with her. Melvin looked like a part of her family. he looked like he was having a blast! We were afraid that he wouldn't want to leave when we went to pick him up. Amy is top notch and I know Melvin will stay with her again!

Hines absolutely loved spending a couple days with Amy & her pups! He didn't even seem to care when I showed up to pick him up because he was having so much fun sniffing out cats :) Amy sent lots of pictures to keep me posted on Hines and his vacay. Awesome host!

Amy is awesome. The first time we met her, we knew Simba will be happy. We had no doubts. I am so glad we found her. We had a peaceful time away without worrying about Simba. Thank you so much Amy.
Phoebe (our dog) came home from her second stay happy and healthy! Amy is such a genuinely sweet and cheerful person and she truly loves dogs. I am so glad we found her... it is so amazing to know that if we can't take Phoebe with us, she will have a great time on *her* vacation.

Amy sends photographs regularly and her captions really convey that she has spent time with Phoebe and understands her personality.

Amy did an awesome job with my 9 mo old border collie. I was so apprehensive about leaving her any where for 4 days, but she made her feel so at home. After this experience, I would never consider a large dog kennel again.
Amy was our first time using Dog Vacay and we will never use a kennel again. The meet and greet was fantastic and easy. We got to see the great place where our dog would be staying and also meet her friendly, social dogs which our lab immediately became friends with. The pictures sent to us everyday clearly displayed Amy going above and beyond to give our Lab a great time playing, going for walks, cooling off from the hot sun and much more. I would recommend Amy to anyone who wants to give their dog a loving home while they are away.

We were very nervous about boarding because our girl has never been away from home. However, Amy was a great find and she really took the time to make sure Phoebe didn't have too much separation anxiety! Throughout the stay she kept us up-to-date on Phoebe and she was easy to work with in terms of arrangements, drop off, etc. We will not hesitate to request another visit with her again.

Buster had a very good time. Amy did a good job and we are looking forward to the next time. Thanks
Let me say that we could give Amy 10 stars if we had that option. Our baby Yogi loved his stay at Amy's. He made friends with her 2 dogs Bella and Rosco who are big sweethearts . We left Yogi for about 10 days and he seemed to love every bit of it. Amy was giving him good walks every day and was also updating us diligently every day with Yogi's pics and a message to go with it. We could not have asked for anything more. Amy's is a home away from home for Yogi.

Dixie had a wonderful time, thanks to Amy. She came home happy and contented.
Blazer had a great stay with Amy and Roscoe! He felt right at home and got so much attention he slept for a day afterwards! I really appreciate her accommodating my schedule and keeping me appraised of my pup's day! Thanks again, highly recommend.
Taking Maddie to stay with Amy is like leaving your children with your closest relative. You know she will be loved and will receive the best of care. Roscoe and Bella (puppy friends) willingly share their toys, their beds and their 'mom'. We feel so blessed to have found this home away from home for Maddie.

Amy's the best, bar none. Helpful, thoughtful, cheerful and everything else 'ful'. We cherish and appreciate that she takes such wonderful care of Maddie. Maddie loves Bella and Roscoe and I had to plead with her to come down the stairs to leave. It doesn't get better than this!

Amy is wonderful! My puppy was treated as part of the family, and I loved receiving pictures throughout my trip. I didn't have to worry about him at all while I was away, and I knew he was getting plenty of love and attention!
Amy is awesome! I am going to have her watch Clark everytime I go away. I don't worry about my dog when Amy is taking care of him because I know he is getting a lot of TLC! he is always so happy to go there.
Amy was absolutely wonderful, we couldn't have asked for a better experience! Maddie truly had a vacation and it was clear from the pictures and from 'everything that she told us' that she had a great time. Many thanks to Amy and we will definitely be Maddie for more vacations in the future!

Amy was absolutely wonderful with my 12 yr old dobie/lab mix. I have never seen my dog so comfortable and happy in a boarding situation until she was with Amy. Gave her plenty of TLC and petting that My dog was very happy and comfortable.
The entire process was easy for a first time-user. Amy was pleasant and accomodating to our requests. Her home was easy to find, dog-friendly, and comfy. Our dog was welcomed as one of the family.
Amy was an awesome host! He got plenty of play times with his fellow dog residents at Amy's and plenty of long walks, runs, and snuggle time with Amy. She has the perfect little dog get away paradise and was graceful in sharing photos & updates of Bear's stay. We will def. be seeing Amy again in the, hopefully, near future :)

Amy was easy to work with, and seemed to take great care of my dog. No real complaints.
I was comfortable leaving my dog with Amy. I was able to bring him over in advance and ensure he was comfortable at her home; and likewise, she was comfortable with him. Both were comfortable. I have a lab and he loves people and other dogs; he had a great vacation interacting with Amy's dogs and the other dogs that she had previously approved. He didn't come home with any bad habits. I was happy with the approval process since it ensured my pet was happy. We will use Amy's service again.

This was the second time we left Mini with Amy. After the first stay, I didn't feel the need to try out anyone else.
Amy is very understanding of both dogs and people. She said her large dogs were so used to company that they are relaxed around overnight guests and she was right. My bichon mix became part of the pack while we were away. Next time we leave town, I'll be giving Amy another call.
