About Amelia

Hi there,

My name is Amelia. I’m available to dog sit your best friend in my large condo. I work mainly from home and I love the company of animals. My mom bred dogs while I was growing up (Golden Retrievers and Wired haired fox terriers. ) I have been around puppies and dogs all of my life. I have two wonderful girls, Angie and Perdita. Angie is a 13-year-old Lab/Pointer mix and Perdita is a Dachshund I found on the beach in Cuba and had to bring home. They are well mannered and love to go for walks. Especially forest walks! I am usually at home and I will be at home with the animals most of the time. If your baby needs to be monitored 24/7 that can also be arranged. They are also welcome at work with me!

I can have your fur baby overnight or for daycare! We walk our dogs 2-3 times a day so your dog is sure to get plenty of quality exercise and interaction. I can administer medications either orally or by injection, if needed I can accommodate any particular feeding schedule.

I live in a large condo downtown with a 500 square foot patio. It is fully closed off and safe. There is even a custom-made dog toilet!

I’m close to off-leash dog parks and my SUV is fully set up to have the dogs safely in the back for adventures. I have worked and trained many dogs over the years and understand the pack dynamic well. As does my husband. We’re both trained in emergency animal care such as CPR and wound care. We are very conscientious and will look after your pet as if they were our own. There will be lots of play time and snuggles and whatever needs your pet may have. We are also used to helping older dogs with mobility issues or medication needs. My husband actually built our old guy a cart out of a child’s bike and piping after his back went and his hind legs stopped working so well! It was truly amazing. That way he got to spend the last part of his 18 years doing what he loved best. Going for forest walks!

Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have. I encourage a meet up first and then we can proceed from there. We are an excellent choice for your fur baby. There’s lots of love and comfort while you’re away. and I can keep you updated with photos and messages as much as you like!

I hope to meet you and your fur family soon.

Warm regards,

Amelia, John, Angie, Perdita, and Ophelia. ❤

I cannot say enough about the wonderful care Amelia and her husband gave to our grumpy chihuahua, Paco. Amelia won the heart of our little chi. She thought everything about him was cute. Paco fell in love with her and showed his sweet personality. It brought much happiness to our household that Paco was in an environment that was just right for him.
