About Amy

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
This nest located in Society Hill is a cozy one-bedroom apartment with plenty of lounging and open active space. Your pup can enjoy access to nearby parks, neighborhood walks, or just laying low at home.

I live in a pet-friendly, non-smoking building and don't currently have pets of my own, but I grew up surrounded by dogs, cats, birds, hamsters - you name it. I always loved caring for pets of friends and family, so I'm extending to my Philly community!

My apartment is located on the 3rd floor of a walk up row-home. I would be able to help any pups that face issues with stairs, as long as they don't mind being picked up. I work from home, so plenty of walks are not a problem!

I can handle multiple dogs at a time. I'm very active so those with strong dogs are in good hands!

Amy is just the best! Moving from Chicago to Philly, we were nervous about finding a new sitter in a new city. Amy instantly made all those fears fly right out the window. She has created the best "home away from home" for Luna - always taking her on walks, playing endless hours of ball, and sending lots of puppy pics to mom and dad :) Drop off/pick up is never an issue, and we're able to book both months in advance and last minute. Luna is always so excited to see her...I just cannot say enough good things about Amy!

Amy is the best, and I would recommend her with high regards to anyone in Philadelphia! Amy has watched my dog, Taco, several times and it is always a seamless experience! We set a schedule, she sends me tons of pictures and I feel great leaving my little one with her (which says a lot considering I am a completely overprotective fur mom). Taco even get's excited when we're heading to her house because she loves Amy's house so much! Amy even gave Taco a bath, walked her, snuggled, and even got her the treats we like. She went above and beyond my expectations. If you're looking for a dog watcher in the area, call Amy - Taco and I approve :-)

Amy was great and took great care of our puppy. She sent us pictures and followed up often.
Amy was great! My dog can be an energetic little mischief monster, and is aggressive with other dogs. Amy got him some good walks at times when there weren't a lot of other dogs out, and messaged me in the middle of the day that he was being really relaxed and calm in his first trip to her apartment! She was really quick to respond, and even helped me get my pouch and his crate out to my car. She was wonderful!
Lucy had a great stay!
Excellent sitter, will absolutely use again. Also, incredibly accommodating and flexible. Amy is great!
Amy was great with Lena! She had an awesome time. I highly recommend her.
Bruno loved her right off the bat, and she was flexible with her hours given my crazy schedule during that time.
Amy was a great dog walker - responsive and friendly :)
Amy dogsat for us recently and our little Roger just loved her. She was very responsive to our requests and punctual on drop off and pickup times. We'll definitely be using her again.
Amy helped us out on short notice. She was flexible and responded quickly. She took great care of Ellie. Highly recommended!
Amy is awesome! She has watched Luna twice now, and both times she came home tired and happy. Amy sent me pictures each day, and has been really flexible with pickup/drop off times. Luna already has 2 more "staycations" planned with Amy and she can't wait!
Amy did such a good job. I have 2 dogs, a beagle and a puggle and she managed them both just fine. She has a cute apartment in a dog friendly building near a nice dog park. She was flexible on drop off and pick up times. She sent us an update during the weekend with a picture of the pups which made my day. I would recommend Amy and I would happily use her again!
Our dog seemed to love his stay with Amy. She sent updates almost every day for us to see how the pooch was doing which was greatly appreciated.
Amy was great! She texted to me daily updates photos - will definitely use her again!
Great experience, will definitely be back!
This was the first time we had Amy do a two night stay with our two greyhounds while both my husband and I were away. Amy was quick to respond to my reservation request and set up a time to come over and meet "the girls". I felt very comfortable with Amy right away so I knew our dogs would be in good hands. She wanted to make sure if the dogs had any special issues such as fear of motorcycles or horses (we live in the city) so that she could be prepared to deal with any should they arise. Amy sent me messages and a photo of the girls while I was away, letting me know everything was fine. I highly recommend Amy for your pet needs and I will be using her again for walking and overnights stays!
I just moved to Philly and don't have any family members or friends to watch my dog and cat. I found Amy and couldn't be happier! My dog is super fearful and reactive but Amy handles him wonderfully!
Amy was amazing with Beckham. As a 6 month old Chocolate Lab with unbound energy he is very excitable. She handled him really well and he loved being around the other dogs. We will definitely be using Amy in the future.
Amy did fantastic! My dogs a little high maintenance and she made her feel right at home! Taco loved her aunt Amy! Amy was also willing to work with my schedule and sent me tons of pictures to make sure I always knew what my little one was up to. Thanks Amy!!! :)
Amy is a great dog walker! She was on-time, flexible with her schedule and sent me a text about how the walk went and a picture of my pup. Would book her again.
Amy was amazing! We have two goldendoodles (a standard and a mini) who require a ton of love and attention. Amy was always extremely quick to respond when I checked in on our fur babies and sent multiple pictures to us throughout the weekend. Most importantly, our babies were returned to us is as happy as could be! We will definitely be using Amy again and recommend her 100%.
Amy was so great, she was flexible with my chaotic schedule, she met me beforehand, texted me after each walk with updates and took the extra time to make both my dog and I feel absolutely taken care of. I will definitely be using her again!
Amy was great with Riley! She watched him for 5 nights and sent daily updates. Riley could sometimes be a handful and she didn't have any issues. We will definitely use Amy again!
Amy was awesome! Took great care of my two pups and was very flexible in accommodating pickup and dropoffs. Will definitely look to her next time we need her!
Amy is great! The second time I dropped my pups off with Amy they got so excited! Amy is so sweet and is always patient with me. It seems like I'm always changing my pickup and drop off times. She also sends me pictures so I don't have to worry.
Thanks for being awesome Amy!
Amy was fantastic! We needed someone to walk our pup that same day, and Amy was ready and available right away! Will definitely use again in the future, and recommend to anyone looking for a reliable dog sitter.
Amy was absolutely amazing. It gave me such peace of mind to know that my puppy was well taken care of. She absolutely adores Amy (almost didn't want to leave when we got there), which speaks to what a wonderful job Amy did. I recommend her whole-heartedly!
Amy did a great job with Roni. He can be very nervous with new people and she had him cuddling with her right away. She was also very flexible with the pick up time as we were not sure how traffic would affect our arrival. I recommend boarding with Amy to dog owner.
Amy was awesome! Very responsive, easy to communicate and coordinate schedules with. She sent daily photos with a status of how Brody was doing. I definitely recommend Amy for future stays.
Due to our dog's potential to be a bit of a pain (separation anxiety and leash reactiveness mainly) we're always a bit nervous when looking for a new dog sitter, but Amy put our concerns at ease! They ran into some giant dogs (aka horses) and Mav did his usual song and dance, but Amy handled it well! She said it was even a bonding experience for the two of them! We will not hesitate to have our dog stay with her in the future.
Amy was so nice and flexible. She quickly responded to texts, sent pictures and really did a great job of taking care of Rory. I can tell Rory liked her as well because she scratched the car window when we left wanting to go back. Thanks Amy!!
My dogs second stay with Amy. Again, she was great. Got text messages and pictures of my dog, so I knew she was fine.
Amy was great. Really fun and friendly. My owner thought so too! Maisey the dog
Amy was awesome. We had a number of changes due to travel issues. Amy was flexible and happy too accommodate. Marley was well cared for!
