About Amy

21 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
(Note: I love cats and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting!)

Hello! My name is Amy and I can't wait to meet you and your four-legged friend! I live alone in a one-bedroom (dog-friendly) apartment in Lincoln Square. My building faces Welles Park, which is wide-open, dog-friendly green space! My neighborhood is full of safe, tree- and grass-lined sidewalks and there is a great veterinary clinic less than a block away.

I decided to become a DogVacay host shortly after I lost my own dog to a heart tumor. While I'm not quite ready to consider adopting a new pup just yet, I still have plenty of love to give. That being said, my apartment is definitely dog-approved and safe!

I formerly spent a year working as a veterinary technician, so I am well-versed in basic canine medical care. I currently work as a special education teacher during the week, but I can get home mid-day to shower your pup with love, attention, and playtime. Weekends are also generally available as well! I also love to send out-of-town owners pictures, videos, and updates!

Thanks for stopping by; I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Amy was great. She was flexible on times and she showed true affection for our dog Rocky and took time to get to know him when we first met. He had fun while he was with her (as shown by the photos she sent - which were much appreciated since we fun while he was with her (as shown by the photos she sent - which were much appreciated since we hadn't used her before.) She even gave Rocky a little present at the end of the stay!

Oh wow Amy was amazing! She took our pups with short notice and truly went above and beyond by helping us arrange transportation to make our trip possible. The daily pics and videos were adorable and responses to all communication was prompt and possible. The daily pics and videos were adorable and responses to all communication was prompt and super friendly. Her place has a great location across from a big park and is super cute and comfy. My pups were happy as clams when I picked them up. Will definitely be back if she'll have us!

The cards were in our favor when we found Amy to take care of our 13.5-year-old dog over our wedding week vacation.
Amy knew the exact ways to take care of her, and it was apparent when we came to pick up our pup, Evie, that she TRULY loved being care of her, and it was apparent when we came to pick up our pup, Evie, that she TRULY loved being around Amy!
Her home is comfortable and beautiful.
We received DAILY updates about Evie with detailed information. Amy was very attentive!
We really hope that Amy and Evie can spend more time together in the future.
We have NEVER come across someone who is as good with our family member as Amy has been.
We are incredibly grateful and lucky to have met her.
It has only been a couple of days, and I have already recommended her to a friend!
