About Amy

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
As of July 1 we are unable to take care of your awesome dogs as we will be moving! We will provide info. when we can start back up again.

We are on the Newton-Wellesley line outside of Boston, and our gentle yellow lab will love hanging out with your dog in our large fenced-in yard.

I am a stay at home mom of an 8 and 5 yr. old.

Our daily routine (if the weather cooperates) typically includes one daily walk and play sessions in the yard. We always provide daily emails or texts and photos so that you can take comfort knowing that your pup is well while you are away.

Like you, we treat our own dog as a true member of our family. So we understand that you want peace of mind when you are out of town, and our home will definitely provide that for you.

**We are taking dogs periodically and only through referrals! This is due to our schedule that can change daily since we have a very busy family schedule.

Amy and her family were great with my two boys! I get very nervous about leaving my dogs, and my regular sitter couldn't take them and highly recommended Amy-- I'm glad she did! I received updates from Amy via text (with photos!) and felt very happy that they looked so content and comfortable :)
I know Romeo and Louis were in a very loving home while we were away and that felt great. I would highly recommend Amy and her family, and will definitly use her again in the future!
Our dog was out for a walk before we even left the neighborhood! Amy was very accommodating, coordinating with our neighbor who was taking over care after the weekend. Thanks for the great stay, Amy!
Charley had the best time and is always well cared for and LOVED.
This was our first experience with Amy and her family and I have to say, they were absolutely amazing! It was clear throughout that she took care of our dog as she would a member of her family. He we safe, healthy and happy at all times. She also regularly provided photos and updates, which put our mind at ease. We will absolutely work with Amy again!
Amy is great! We were in a pinch and she came through and helped us out on short notice. Our dog Monty loves his visits with Amy and her family. He gets lots of love and attention! We will continue to be a repeat customer. Highly recommend!
Amy and her whole family were amazing with our dog, Tessa. Thank you for loving our girl like she was your own:) P.S. I really loved the daily photo updates it made the distance so much easier for us!
Amy took such good care of Franklin again! We didn't have to worry for a second and she always sends good and frequent updates. I highly recommend Amy!
As always, Amy was wonderful!! She was so great about sending us updates and pictures, and Franklin seemed so happy on his vacay! He went on long daily walks, played in the yard, and got extra cuddles from her whole family. I would highly recommend Amy!
SOOOO much better than a kennel! Amy and her family were so kind to Dori, giving her lots of one on one play time and attention. The pictures and updates that Amy sent were reassuring, and made us feel like our dog was on a fun vacation while we were doing the same. I'll definitely have Dori stay with Amy again.
Amy is wonderful! She was flexible and able to accommodate us during the busy holiday. Our dog Monty always has a great time with Amy and her family (and especially their lab, Lily!). He mopes around when he comes back home because he misses them! I love the pictures/updates she sends and I know that Monty is in good hands while we are away. I would highly recommend her and will not hesitate to use her again.
Charley had a fab time!!
Its always a good sign of a match when the DogVacay family treats our Titus as one of their own. He's zonked from an active visit, but is (as always) well cared for and loved by Amy and her family.
Charley had a wonderful visit with the family! It was clear from the pics and updates that she did not miss us at all and was well loved and cared for while we were gone. Charley would go back here in a second!!
Amy was very responsive and flexible with our needs. We would definitely have our dog stay with her and her family again.
Amy is so great! Our dog, Franklin, loves staying there and seems to have a blast going on walks, hanging out in the yard, and getting lots of love from the whole family. She is also great about sending text updates and pictures. I never worry about Franklin once while he's there. We highly recommend Amy!
Fun as always. Orio came home tired and happy.
Orio loves it so much at Amy's house. Every day she is there she comes home and all she wants to do is sleep because of all the exercise.
Another great stay with Amy and the family. Thanks again!
The only downside is that orio plays so much there all she wants is to sleep when she gets home :)
Amy was wonderful. Orio had so much fun with lily the only sad moment was when she had to leave.
WOW, what a great home, it felt like we were leaving her with family. Amy even took our dog Roxie a ten year old chocolate lab to our vet one day when she was a little ill. Not a vet close by her home, but our own vet 25 miles away. I would highly recommend Amy and her family if you are looking for a warm, caring, home away from home for you dog(s). She also sent email updates and pictures so we could relax each night knowing all was well.
A Hughes weight of guilt was lifted when I heard Amy was available to sit for my 11 y/o lab. I was able to enjoy my short vacation knowing that my dog was in a loving home with a very a amazing family. Amy is wonderful!
Amy took such good care of our lab, Monty. She sent updates and pictures and he appeared to be having a wonderful time. Amy totally put our minds at ease so that we could enjoy our vacation knowing that he was in good hands. I would definitely use her again and highly recommend her.
Titus had a great weekend with Amy and the family. And since this was his second visit, he was not tentative at all to settle in. Another successful DogVacay visit!
A wonderful family that welcomes your dog into their home and hearts. I hope this is the start of a long standing relationship. 5 stars and more.
Titus is a sensitive dog, so where he stays when we are away can be a challenge. But Amy and her family made him feel right at home, with lots of people time, activity and tender love and care. He had some feeding needs that could have been complicated, but Amy was happy to do what was needed to keep him on track. We not only recommend her, we are preparing for another visit with them soon.
My dog Katie always enjoys her time at Amy's house. Great experience for both of us!
My dog Nigel had a fantastic time at Amy's! I will never take him to a kennel again. Amy and her family are wonderful people who love dogs. They have a lovely home and a fenced-in back yard with grass and trees. Nigel received tons of attention and love and from the photos Amy sent during Nigel's stay, he had a terrific time! It was nice to be able to go away without feeling guilty about leaving my dog at the noisy kennel. Couldn't ask for anything more!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Amy and her family. My Lily was treated like a member of the family, she even let her sleep in her bed! We kept in touch every day and she sent pictures as well. Thank you Amy for everything!

I'm not sure I could've left my 8-year old, allergy ridden, thyroid deficient Beagle in any better hands than with Amy. You can tell that Amy and her family truly love dogs and seemed genuinely sad to bid Zoey farewell. They are some of the nicest people you will ever meet, right down to their friendly lab, Lily!

I wouldn't be surprised if Amy's fenced in backyard is exactly how dogs imagine heaven. I was actually bummed that I wasn't around to watch Zoey enjoy it! Zoey was absolutely exhausted when she got home and I can only imagine it was from all the walks and outdoor time she spent there.

The updates and pictures I received throughout her stay really put my mind at ease. I could tell my beloved pup was in good hands with a loving family. I wouldn't hesitate to board her here again and will be encouraging others to do the same!
Maggie had a great time with their family and dog! In fact I think she might have been sad to come home. We got regular updates that she was doing well. I'd recommend Amy to anyone whose dog needs a loving home away from home for a fees days.
I can't say enough great things about Amy and her family - what a wonderful experience! Everyone was so gracious and accommodating and made our pup feel at home as soon as we arrived. Amy's home and huge backyard were true doggie heaven. Midnight didn't even realize when we left, and seemed to want to stay longer when we picked her up.

This was our first time leaving Midnight with someone outside the family, and any concerns we had before booking with Amy disappeared completely. Amy and her husband kept us updated with pictures and texts while we were away. They are the absolute nicest and are so great with pups. Lily, Amy's adorable dog, was the perfect playmate and amazingly good natured. Midnight warmed up to her right away, and I'm convinced she misses her new friend now that we're back home. Nothing about our stay could have been any better!
Amy and family were very friendly and welcoming to Guapo. They have a lovely home with lots of outside running space for energetic dogs. Guapo had a great time playing with Lily! Thanks again!
