About Amy

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We specialize in the care of dogs 15 pounds and under! Too often, tiny but mighty canines are over shadowed by their larger counterparts. Here, at Large Digs for Small Dogs, we ONLY host dogs 15 pounds and under. While their size may be tiny, small dogs are all heart and play, as such they will enjoy our fenced in 1/2 acre back yard. I am an online History Professor, as such, I work from home. My dogs are typically left home alone for 1-2 days per week for about 2-4 hours. When I do leave my dogs are gated in the kitchen. I walk my dogs every day for 45-60 minute walks in various local parks. I make my dogs food, as such I am very respectful of the dietary needs of the dogs who "vacation" at my house. The flooring in my house is porcelain tile which is great for allergies and the occasional potty accident isn't a disaster. The dogs who "vacation" at my house are able to sleep in a comfy crate or on a comfy dog bed in my bedroom. When I leave vacationing dogs, they will be left gated in my kitchen. If vacationing dogs prefer being left alone in a crate, I have two large crates in which she is welcome to snooze.
My house is run by dachshunds, as such there are multiple places to relax and sleep on low-lying furniture. If your dog has hip-dysplasia or short legs, she will not struggle with getting comfortable here. I keep a very clean house and it is puppy-proofed! I also have a fenced-in backyard that is dog escape proof. It is a 5.5 foot Kentucky Board and Privacy fence combination. There is heavy-duty plastic mesh which runs from the top board to ground with no escape holes. My dogs are small weighing in at 12.7 lbs and 11.5 lbs, as such I am very careful making sure the fence is secure. The house has three toy boxes for dogs to find a fabulous toys with which to play. My house is very dog friendly and so are its human and canine occupants. I have two conditions: dogs who vacation here must be non-aggressive and I only accept dogs 15 pounds and under.

Amy is amazing. Tootsie was car sick when I left her there and she helped her get over it. The time and love she showed Tootsie was beyond what I expected. I received pictures and e-mail every day and was reassured that all was well. It was my first experience leaving a 6 month old puppy and Amy was the perfect match for Tootsie. I will leave Tootsie with Amy and time I need to be away. I consider it her second home now. Amy's love and care for dogs and her experience with puppies shows and that is hard to find.
