About Amy

I work 9-5 at an international development firm in Arlington and I live in downtown DC. I'm available on most evenings, weekends, and holidays. I don't board pets in my apartment due to limited space and I have two cats who aren't fans of dogs, but I hope you will keep me in mind for overnight stays at your home as well as home visits.

I care for fur-children of all shapes, sizes, and breeds. In addition to dogs and cats, I also have experience with rabbits, turtles, and fish.

Rates vary based on distance, metro accessibility, and demand. Please contact me for a customized quote.

Amy was awesome! Everything went as planned and she sent us some pictures and texts to keep us updated. We will definitely be using Amy in the future.
Amy was great, very attentive to details, and really cared for Petey. We got lots of updates, and felt comfortable because she was very engaged and went above and beyond expectations. Having someone who will stay in our house really helps us feel comfortable leaving Petey at home. Without people like Amy we wouldn't travel very much! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Amy was awesome and we would totally use her again. She sent plenty of updates about Nikkita. She always stayed in touch when she arrived and left and was in constant communication when she had concerns. Big thumbs up!
Amy was wonderful! She gave full attention to our puppies with tons of exercise, love and care. With constant pictures being sent to us and being extremely responsive we felt comfortable the entire weekend knowing that our puppies were in great care. We will definitely be seeing Amy again in the near future. Thanks Amy!
Pawsome experience with Amy - liked our considerate, reliable and extremely doggy (and people) friendly sitter!:) A little on the expensive end for the service, but considering the last minute arrangements, I did not mind at all.

I would recommend Amy.
Amy is fantastic! We couldn't be happier with our experience each and every visit.
Amy was great. I chose her to keep my pup company from the reviews that were posted and those reviews were not wrong. She is a great sitter for your fur-child. I was visiting the DC area and needed someone to take my pup out around the lunch time and to stay with her in the evening. Amy came to meet her and Roxy warmed to her pretty fast. Amy sent me a text about how Roxy was doing and texted me a picture. It made me feel so good to know that my pup was being well taken care of. I will call Amy again any time I am in DC and bring my pup. Anita C
Amy was great. Very friendly, flexible, and accommodating, and our dog seems to love her!
Amy was so kind and accommodating. She was very flexible and made part Scout her companion while we were away. She was informative about her health while we were away, you can tell she an eye for detail as well being an overall genuinely nice person. Highly recommend! Thank you Amy!
Amy was fabulous! Inexplicably, my dog with the "I'm gonna eat you alive" attitude on walks, has turned into a well mannered dog after her stay. She looks at other dogs and maybe let's out a little bark, but then keeps walking. I'm amazed!

Amy had her hands full with my three, but all returned home tired and happy. Couldn't ask for more peace of mind when on vacation. Would definitely recommend and will use again!
I am a big fan of Dogvacay and my lab, Scout, is definitely a huge fan of staying with Amy and her housemate Rachel!
I used to think there wasn't anything easier for me or my dog than to have a pet sitter come to the house, right? They're in their own environment, little change...turns out I was wrong. My dog was so much happier to be with people who delighted in her, it kept her little doggy brain off my travels and I felt a lot better about coming home.
It was really clear that they were kind and spent time with her, she was happy and relaxed, plus I got some adorable pics and texts from them while I was away. They took her to the dog park and even to a local street festival.
Usually post-trip my dog is clingy after my time away, it feels like a residual extension of the trip separation. Now I know I can leave without worry, because she was with a loving person who cares about animals as much as I do.
Amy and Rachel were flexible, communicative, easy to reach and very friendly. I really recommend her home and know I will enjoy my time away with greater ease because of their care. Her home was easy to find, there was parking (something to always note in DC, right?) and they had her ready and organized for a speedy pre-work pick up. I look forward to working with her again.

Thanks again! Laura
