About Amy

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
One and Only -- Yes, One and Only One dog at a time! No worries about interacting with other dogs. Your dog will eat his or her own food, treats, and medicine. They will go for walks on their normal schedule. Your dog will not be harassed by a playful puppy or children. He or She won't need to compete for attention, they will have as much as they like.

Your dog must be fully potty trained, NOT pad trained. 100% accident free. (would consider a crate trained puppy of a medium or large breed dog)

Your dog will get Lots of love and personal care in a quiet, calm, and peaceful family home. We welcome only fully potty trained, nicely behaved dogs, with no excessive barking habits. Your dog will be treated like a member of our family. We are a young retired couple who work together to provide care for your dog or other animals. We have lots of time to provide the best in care, one of us can always be home. Your dog will be our priority. We only take care of one dog at a time or 2 dogs from the same family.

We lost our Golden Retriever almost 2 years ago, and we are not ready to get a puppy yet. We love dogs and have never been without one this long. We have taken our dogs through years of advanced obedience school so we have a good amount of experience with basic training and behaviors. We have a large 2700 sq ft home in a gated community. Smoke free. We do NOT have a fenced yard. Dogs are always on a leash when outside of our home. Our cat, Maddie, has her safe places. She doesn't seem interested one way or another when we have dogs visit, as long as your dog does not aggressively chase her.

Because your dog will be our only guest, your dog's routine will set our schedule. Completely customized one on one care. No worries about feeding schedules or interaction with other dogs. You will need to let us know what distance your dog is comfortable with walking. Our normal dog walking schedule is a potty break at 7:30 a.m., breakfast, a nice walk around the neighborhood at 8:30 a.m. (.8 miles) then potty breaks in the backyard throughout the day. Dinner at 4:30, then another walk around the neighborhood (.8 miles). Again at 9:30 p.m. a half loop around the neighborhood. If your dog is large or younger and enjoys longer distances, we would walk further in the morning and late evening. As much or as little as your dog requires. .

If you've ever had to say " I'd love to, but I need to get home for my dog" schedule a meet 'n greet. Wouldn't it be nice to have a friend to call on short notice?

What a wonderful couple! We felt fantastic about leaving Cali for a week with such nice people! All the updates and pictures were a bonus! Thanks so much for such a great experience.
Our Jackie was well cared for and loved! She had a wonderful time which is important to us.
In spite of the fact that my dog Aspen is shy and skeptical of new situations, she warmed up quickly to Amy, her husband and their environment. I felt very comfortable leaving Aspen in their 24 hour care. And the daily text message was very reassuring! I hope they are available the next time Aspen needs a pet-sitter!

We needed a place for our chocolate lab, Rocko, on short notice for 11 days. Amy sent pictures and kept us updated to appease all of our separation issues. Amy's place was amazing making Rocko and us very comfortable. Thank you!!!
