About Amanda

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We would love to open our happy home to your friendly dogs while you are out of town! Our home has a grassy, fenced-in backyard that your pup will love to romp around in. I also often go on runs and long walks and love to have a canine companion!

We do not have a dog of our own but we have a sweet, social cat named Pumpkin. When necessary, we can put Pumpkin in our bedroom and keep her separated from your dog.

I (Amanda) am at work for about 8 hrs/weekday and Ohmarx is a full-time student who goes to class 4 days/week for half days. Your dog will need to be OK left alone for about 4-5 hrs a day max during the work week.

The cost is $35/day ($40 on holidays). If you pick up on an evening, we request payment for that final day as well. Know that with us, your pooch will get oodles of attention, exercise, care, and most importantly, love! Just don't be hurt if he/she doesn't want to leave when you come back from your trip. He/She will get spoiled over here! :0)

Send us a Meet 'n Greet request if you're interested in seeing our space and meeting us in person- we'd be happy to have you!

*No Pit Bulls or Pit mixes, please and thank you!

My wife and I are very pleased with the home Amanda provided for Max while we traveled. She kept us up-to-date with numerous photos and videos, which were most appreciated. We plan on using her again very soon!
Vena loved it. I will use Amanda again in the future....
Amanda was a wonderful host for our dog Lilly. Sent plenty of pictures and videos of our dog while we were away. I felt Lilly received good attention and care. I would highly recommend Amanda when considering leaving your pet.
This was our first experience leaving our dog Pepper overnight, and I can't think of a better place for him to be than with Amanda! Pep is like family and a rescue that was previously abandoned, so we were a little apprehensive about ever leaving him somewhere, but couldn't have felt better about his care. Amanda instantly connected with Pep when we brought him over, and we could tell he was going to be just as comfortable and loved in his weekend retreat as he is at home. I knew he was a happy man from all of the pictures and videos Amanda sent throughout our trip of them playing in the yard, going on runs, and relaxing on the couch together. Highly recommend Amanda and the only person we'll call if we need a sitter for a weekend again! Thanks so much Amanda!
Amanda was a great hostess!! Our dog is anxious in new surroundings and people, but Amanda made her feel right at home. She made sure to make her feel safe and comfy with all our directions. Amanda sent plenty of pictures and videos to help put our minds at ease so we didn't have to worry! :-)
I cannot begin to say enough how great Amanda was with my dog Holly. This was the first time I had ever left her for a long period plus she has never been in a cage. Finding Amanda made my vacation so relaxed since I knew Holly was in excellent hands and that she wouldn't be in cage. When I got to a port and I could check on things. The first thing on my emails were pictures of Holly playing and running around the yard. I cannot thank Amanda enough for knowing Holly was well taken care of so I could enjoy a vacation with my family .
Amanda was amazing! Our dog loved his stay with her. The first photos were sent to me about 30 minutes after drop off and I was immediately at ease and knew that he was going to have a great time. I loved all the photos and the video updates. My little guy was spoiled! We have already scheduled another doggy vacation with Amanda.
On my on experience I don't thing Amanda care about animals. Susi is like my doughter and I feel very bad about all the sofering she had with Amanda.
Awesome!!!! We have used Amanda twice and it has been a wonderful experience. My kids and I love that she sends pictures and videos every day that we are out of town. We also love that she takes him on walks and hikes. We will definitely be calling on Amanda again.
Amanda was great! Penny was well loved. She consistently posted photos and kept us informed
Amanda was very loving towards my pups and patience. She sent me some wonderful photos and video. I felt my pups were safe and very loved.
Amanda was great with Buddy and we give her the highest rating. She took him for hikes, which he loves, and he seems very comfortable in their home and yard.
Simply the best! We feel completely comfortable and confident having Amanda watch Peggy :)
Our Lab had a wonderful weekend with Amanda, both indoors and in her great, fenced yard. He got plenty of exercise there and at nearby park, and got to play with another dog, staying at the house. We received updates and photos during his stay, which was really nice. Buddy will be visiting Amanda again soon.
Another great experience! I feel very comfortable leaving Peggy overnight with Amanda. I know Peggy is under excellent care. I truly do trust Amanda and will continue to use her services 
Our girls had a great time with Amanda! They cannot wait to go on their next Doggie Vacation :)
We could not have been happier with Amanda:). She took care of our English Bulldog, Peggy, as if it were her own dog:)! We had never left Peggy with a doggy sitter--Amanda, made us feel very comfortable and most importantly wanted Peggy to have the best care. She sent me pictures via text and email throughout the 3 days of Peggy's stay. Peggy was able to play in her backyard, go on walks, and have someone to play with her. I know Peggy was having a great time with Amanda. We are SOOOOO HAPPY that we found someone that we can trust with our dog. We highly recommend that you use Amanda's services. Peggy will definitely be back :)
Amanda was fantastic. This was our first time using Dogvacay, and we were a little nervous. She was great starting from the meet and greet, you can tell she is very experienced with dogs and made us feel very comfortable. She made sure we had multiple pictures sent to us everyday. She make feel our dog at home, we were so lucky that Amanda was available to take care of our dog. I would definitely recommended her and will have her board our dog again.
We highly recommend Amanda for taking care of your pet! I am pretty sure it was like week at the spa for our dog. We were worried he wouldn't wanna come home after seeing a the pics taken during the stay!

Thanks Amanda for loving on our dog while we were away!
I was out of town for the weekend, and I'm really glad that I left my puggle, Lucy, with Amanda. She was great! I hate being away from my baby, but Amanda was great at sending picture updates throughout the weekend. It put me at ease to see that Lucy was having a good time. Lucy was given plenty of attention and was taken on walks. It was also great that they had a backyard that Lucy could play in. It felt great knowing that Lucy was in good, loving hands. I'll book Amanda next time I use Dog Vacay
Great host!
Amanda was very attentive to my dogs. I think having 3 big dogs, was a little overwhelming, but she handled it wonderfully. She was all positive and smiles every time we talked and sent texts. I would HIGHLY recommend her for anyone.
Thanks Amanda for taking such good care of Cocoa and Mindy. It was their first time away from home and you made the experience for them exceptional. You also made me feel like you cared for them like they were yours.
Thank you very much and I will definitely be calling on you again.
Amanda was awesome! She sent me several pictures of my little Maximus everyday, and was very good about replying to my texts. Max suffers from separation anxiety, but he seemed to be comfortable at her place, which definitely put me at ease during my trip. I will be using Amanda again next month!
This was our first time using Dog Vacay and we are happy that we found Amanda. Amanda was AWESOME! She sent us several pictures of Sally every day. We were so happy to see our dog every day in good hands.Sometimes they were out for a run and other times just relaxing at home. We could tell from each picture that Sally was very comfortable and that Amanda and her husband were taking great care of her. We would highly recommend Amanda and we will definitely be using her again.
This was our first time using the Dog Vacay service and we couldn't be happier. Amanda was AWESOME! She was very kind and accommodating to us and to our Dog. She sent us multiple pictures of Rocky every day. Sometimes they were out for a run and other times just relaxing at home. We could tell from each picture that Rocky was very comfortable and that Amanda was taking great care of him. Rocky was so comfortable in the pictures that my husband actually got a little jealous. We will definitely recommend this service - and Amanda again.
My lab Chloe had a wonderful time with Amanda and her husband while my wife and I needed to be out of town for a night; Chloe didn't want to leave when I picked her up! You can tell that they are a couple that really love animals.

Even though the stay was just a bit more than 24 hours, Amanda kept us updated with lots of pictures and notes. Her pickup and drop off times were very flexible. Their house was very clean and well kept, and Chloe was all packed up and ready to go once I arrived.

I highly recommend Amanda; the value for the service she provides is incredible. We look forward to using her in the future.
Thanks Amanda for taking care of my pup, Sammy. Will call on you again.
This was my girl, Lucy's second dogvacay with Amanda. When we arrived for the drop-off, Lucy walked right in like she lived there. That to me is a great sign that she is very comfortable being there. Again I got photos everyday (and looked forward to them). Have another trip coming soon and am sad that Amanda isn't available.....BUT I plan on leaving Lucy with Amanda in April. Highly recommend!
I am so happy that I found this website. Amanda took excellent care of my golden retriever and I will definitely be using her again!
Dogberry and Little Bit had a great time with Amanda and Ohmarx. So much so that we were afraid they might not want to come home with us! :-)

Seriously, I felt comfortable with them from the beginning, and that never waivered. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to see their four-legged children pampered and cared for with going on walks and runs, trips to the park, being brushed, and getting lots of belly rubs!

Thanks so much to Amanda and Ohmarx - we were able to really enjoy our time away seeing the pictures and knowing our babies were so well cared for!
My dog Lucy spent two weeks with Amanda while I vacationed in Italy. I received pictures every day. These pictures assured me that Lucy was well taken care off and was happy. I will be scheduling another dogvacay with her soon. Thanks Amanda for the loving care you gave my baby!
My experience with Amanda watching Polo was perfect. She sent me pictures of my baby pooks each day. It made me feel secure in leaving him with her and I could tell he was having a great time. Thank you for spoiling him Amanda! We will be bringing him back in the future:)
Thanks Amanda for taking care of Sammy. We will call again.
Amanda was great w/Pippa. She is less than a yr old, had not stayed away from home overnight. She seemed comfortable w/Amanda which helped me with my anxiety over leaving her. Seemed happy when we picked her up. Thank you Amanda. Helen House
My experience with Amanda was WONDERFUL. It was obvious from the time that I dropped my dog Ace off that she has a true love for animals. This made me feel very comfortable about leaving him with her. While I was gone on my trip, Amanda sent picture updates, showing me that my dog was being treated good and having a great time. Overall, I would recommend that if you need someone to watch after your pet, pick Amanda. She's great!
Great host. Our dogs had a great time. Very good communication. Would highly recommend.
We couldn't be happier with our experience with Amanda. We left our dog Rusty with her for an entire week and, from all the photos and email updates, it looks like he had as much fun on his vacation as we did!

Amanda communicated with us daily, with photos and a daily activity summary. She obviously cared for him and pampered him as if he were her own. We are so glad we found her and will certainly use her again, as we are sure Rusty misses her, too!
My wife and I were very pleased with Amanda and her husband's care of our dog Beau. The pictures she sent gave us peace of mind while we were away. Beau typically suffers from separation anxiety, however Amanda and her husband spoiled him so much so that we did not notice a change in his behavior when we returned as we have experienced in the past when we have previously left him in the care of others. We will definitely use them again, and I highly recommend them.
When my regular pet sitter was unavailable to stay with my dog, Roxy, during a recent hospitalization, I checked out DogVacay & found an awesome couple, Amanda P & her husband. I was a little uneasy leaving my furbaby with strangers, but Amanda immediately eased my concern by sending me pictures of my dog every day. It was the highlight of my day. Roxy even made a new cat friend while there. Amanda & her husband took my dog in and treated her like their own. They followed all the instructions I left for her and gave her plenty of TLC. They were very accommodating in scheduling the meet & greet, drop off & pick-up. I would highly recommend this host for a safe, loving home to leave your best friend.
It was my first time leaving Bentley with Amanda and Omar over memorial day weekend, and I was obviously worried about my best friend. But I didn't have to be worried. They are great hosts! They took very good care of Bentley. They live in a house with a backyard and there is plenty of room for your pet to hang out and relax. Amanda sent me updates everyday. She texted pictures of Bentley making friends with her cat,in the car, on walks, etc. Good gentle people, clean place, backyard, quiet neighbourhood near a park, and they care for your pet as their own! What more can a person ask for, right? - Suri.
After visiting several kennels and dog sitters, I started to feel I would either be forced to sacrifice the comfort of a home-like setting to save $, or end up spending a pretty penny to get the hands-on care I wanted for my dogs. I came across Amanda's profile on Dogvacay and could not be happier..Amanda and her husband Ohmarx took excellent care of both my dogs. Toby and Trixie were taken for long walks, exercised in their yard daily, and treated as part of their family. My dogs were VERY happy and comfortable staying with glad I came across this site as I have found my dogs home away from home:). Thanks again!
We were very happy to find such great dog sitters for Jessie. She made herself right at home and had a great weekend. We really appreciated the updates with pictures. It's a relief to know we have someone close by that we can trust to pamper Jessie like she's used to at home.
I would absolutely recommend Amanda for dog care. I've known Amanda for over three years, and she is one of the most caring and responsible people I know – with a HUGE love for dogs. She and her husband aren’t at a place where they can have a dog of their own, so dog-sitting is her fix. I travel a great deal and Amanda’s home is where Pinky is most happy and healthy when I am gone, and she takes her on regular excursions to local parks so Pinky can run, swim and play fetch to her heart’s delight. She is extremely attentive and genuinely just enjoys being around Pinky– which I think is what makes all the difference for a dog who typically suffers from extreme separation anxiety. With other families, our dog will often throw up and stops eating for days at a time, but never once with Amanda. She makes her feel right at home. I couldn’t ask for greater peace of mind when I travel.
