About Amy

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Madison Critter Sitter! My name is Amy and I am a stay at home mom, former veterinary technician. I traded in my scrubs to be home with my 3 (two legged) children. I would love to take care of your pet(s). I am able to care for young and old, big and small. Medications are no problem.

Because I am home, your pet will have lots of love and lots of attention from my family. The kids love coming home from school and playing with whoever is staying with us. I do require a meet and greet to make sure we all get along.

Please also be aware I do have a resident cat. She is in and outdoors but does sleep inside. Please message me if you have specific concerns.

Amy was great. She sent pitures and gave updates. My babies seemed to feel very comfortable there. Her house and family are friendly and welcoming. I will absolutly use amy's help again in the future
When we pulled up to Amy's house, our dog, Magnus, jumped out of the car and never looked back to us! He obviously feels right at home at Amy's. She was fantastic about keeping us informed of how his stay was going and she sent pictures showing him playing and resting. It is nice to know we can leave our dog with someone who loves our dog as much as we do! We will be using Amy and DogVacay again!

An excellent experience from start to finish.Bear enjoyed playing with the kids and the other dogs.
Lennox had a really great stay at Amy's!
Thanks Amy for taking care of our baby !

We have left our sweet Cocker with Amy several times and his willingness to run to her door each time tells the story best. Unlike the Vet's office where he tries to get back in the car each visit. Amy is experienced with animals and can quickly read their reaction to their surroundings as well as other animals. Her home is set up for keeping the dogs with her family so they are loved and watched closely. They have other dogs to play with and a fenced safe for outside exercise. The dogs have freedom to roam the downstairs and are not confined to small areas. I highly recommend Amy and am very satisfied and pleased to have found DogVacay .

This has been a very good first experience. Amy was easy to get connected with and helped me feel comfortable with leaving Lucy at her home. I could tell from the photos Amy sent me, Lucy relaxed into her Vacay quite well. I have already recommended DogVacay and Amy to friends.

Amy was awesome. She is so personable and my dog Vera had a great time. Definitely will use her again. Thanks Amy.
Amy was great! She had a great backyard for my dog Bentley to run around and sent me photos throughout his stay. I felt extremely comfortable knowing he was in good hands!
Amy was great. Our dogs had a wonderful time. It was nice to know they were being played with by people and other dogs, in addition to being walked instead of being locked in a kennel at the vet. We received regular pictures of the dogs and updates on how they were doing. They left happy and didn't act like they had had a nervous breakdown as they have done before when we left them at the vet for an extended period of time.

Will definitely use this service again.

We felt so comfortable leaving Bella with Amy. As a former vet technician, she is very knowledgeable about pets and took care of Bella as if she were her own. Can't say enough positive comments about Amy!
Amy P. was a fantastic host to Rhea, our dog. She made sure that Rhea made lots of doggie friends and was comfortable and happy. The entire family welcomed and nurtured Rhea, and Amy took care to serve her special food at the right times.

Though our baby was eager to see us, she was also obviously sad to leave her new friends at Amy's house. That is the sign of a great dog-sitting situation. We plan to book with Amy in July when we take a trip out West. We evaluate her work with five stars. Excellent!

Warm wishes, Rebecca and Cliff

Lily, our Yorkie, stayed with Ami and her family and had a wonderful time. We know how well she was cared for because Ami would post photos of Lily playing with her children or spending quiet time with her husband. We know Lily was loved and cared for at Ami's home. Ami followed our requests for feeding and treats at various times of the day. Only a family member could have cared for our Lily as Ami and her family did. I wholeheartedly recommend Ami for boarding and will ask her to watch Lily again. Sincerely, Joe V.

Amy was awesome. We had a family emergency that required we leave town 2 days prior to our scheduled reservation--she graciously agreed to take the dog early. When we arrived to pick our dog up he was happy and it was evident he had been well taken care of.

Gizmo was so tired he couldn't stay awake for the car ride home. He must have had a wonderful time!
Excellent!!!! Will definitely be using her again. Will also highly recommend her to others.
Amy and her family were amazing, I was hesitant to leave my little Bernie for the weekend, but she made sure he was completely taken cared of. Every day she sent me an update of Bernie. He was so happy during his stay at her house. Definitely 100% recommended!

I would recommend Amy for your dog sitting needs! She was very knowledgable about the breads and made our miniature schnauzer feel right at home. She was good to send us updates and pictures as well while we were out of town. We will be happy to have our pup stay with Amy during our next out of town adventure.

My little dog had a wonderful time staying with Amy and her family. She is the second host my dog has stayed with, and I feel like I hit the lottery twice. I would recommend Amy highly.
Thank you, Amy, for taking such great care of Madison and Lightening during our trip to NOLA. I can tell that they loved their stay with you and your family. You're messages and pictures were perfectly timed and made me smile each time they came in. Thanks for keeping me posted as you did. I love my dogs and can honestly say they were happy, tail wagging puppies when we picked them up. You're awesome!

Amy, was awesome and Jasper really liked her. when I got back, he seemed happy when I picked him up. I would definitely use the service again.
Uno really missed the company of the other dogs. She was excited to be home but an around looking for dogs. I really appreciate the homey atmosphere of her home.
Uno had so much fun. It was reassuring that she had a good family to be with.
We have used Amy's services three times already and we're always satisfied each time. You can tell right away after the meet and greet that Amy and her family (especially the kids) love dogs. They have 3 friendly dogs that made our dog at ease, making it easy for him to socialize. They also have a fenced in backyard where the dogs could play. Given Amy's background as a vet tech, we are confident that she has the knowledge and skills in handling our dog well. We highly recommend her.

Great first experience. I have never done anything like this. I've always used Vet boarding. Usually when I get back, Tux was stressed, wounding if I was going to leave him again. Amy was great at giving him plenty of dog playtime, walks, and a comfortable place to just chill out (in his bed!). Loved getting periodic pictures just to destress me about leaving him. Amy also offered training suggestions after meeting him and spending sometime with him that I really appreciate. I will definitely use this service again and share the positive experience with all my other dog parent friends.

Couldn't be happier. I know it sounds crazy, but my wife was so hesitant about leaving Teddy with anyone. After we met Amy it was obvious that Teddy would be in good hands but my wife still cried after dropping him off for the 1st time. Amy kept us updated throughout our trip and the pictures were plenty to let me know that he was doing great. I did have to convince my wife not to call and ask Amy to hold the phone up to his ear so she could talk to him while we were gone but when we picked him up there was no doubt that we will use Amy again anytime that we can't take Teddy with us.

Highly recommended. Dogs were happy and healthy when I picked them up. No issues and great follow ups during the vacay.
Amy was very easy to work with. Gizmo seemed to have a great time and was so tired from playing that he couldn't keep his eyes open on the ride home,
Amy took care of our dog for her first time away from us and we couldn't have been more happier. We will definitely be using Amy again in the future and I will be recommending her to all of our friends. A definite 10 out of 10!!!
Amy is awesome! She loved our Sugar like she was part of her own family! It was very evident how relaxed and happy Sugar was from the pictures she sent us almost daily. There are times you can't bring your furry family on vacation and for those times there is no one but Amy that we would choose to leave our girl with! :)

Very professional, communicative and a true dog lover. Every thing you could ask for in a host. My dogs were happy and healthy when I got them back. Would definitely recommend.
Never once worried about my two pups while gone on a week's cruise. I knew they were having a vacation of their own with Amy and her family. I love the fact that they always have a couple of other dogs to play with and are NOT locked away as they would be in a kennel.

Amy was awesome. Very easy to communicate and figure out drop off and pick up times. Roux had a great time with Amy's dogs and kids. She was so worn out she napped for two days, that's one tired puppy.
Very accommodating and my dogs were worn out from playing when I picked them up. I got multiple pictures and a video of my dog during my vacation.
Amy and family were awesome! Very comforting to know my pups were in a safe, comfortable and loving environment. I will definitely go back!
Amy was kind and caring and her children really love furbabies. My dog, Maggie, had a wonderful time. I will definitely use Amy again.
