Amy has watched my 'boys' a few times now as well as stayed in my home with them while I've been away. She has been exceptional at keeping my boys happy, healthy, and caring for my home while I have been gone. She is very professional, keeps me updated on all things and I have immense trust in her experience and capabilities. Definitely recommend!

Amy has been my house and plant - sitter for the past four years. She also assists me in taking care of my friends' 12 year old Rottweiler, 5 year old Lab - mix, 12 chickens, 2 ducks, numerous indoor and outdoor plants. I've always been more than pleased with her work ethic, conscientiousness and dependability. Upon returning from a trip, my apartment is cleaner than it was before I left and my plants appear healthier. Amy is bright, detail - oriented, compassionate and intuitive particularly when it comes to animals. All the neighborhood dogs and wildlife (especially the birds) are friends with her. Amy also has an extensive, medical background including nursing and fire and rescue work which I believe contributes to her ability to successfully problem - solve and manage challenging situations. I wholeheartedly recommend her as a house/pet - sitter with many, other possibilities.

My family hired Amy so we could travel from Colorado to California for about 4 days for a dream trip. We had an initial meet and greet where she met us, our animals, and we went through all the details of animal care in our household. When we left for our trip, Amy was punctual getting to our home and gave us frequent updates and pictures of our 2 dogs (7-year-old Staffordshire terrier, 7-month-old German Shepard/Border Collie Mix), 2 bearded dragons, and 3 male ferrets. She even did all the extra things like plenty of dog walks, worked with leash training, and had a pool party for the ferrets :). When we came home, she was waiting for us to give an in-depth update on the last 4 days. The house was well taken care of as well as all of our babies. We will certainly hire Amy again for any trips we take for in-home pet sitting because my family and pets just adore her! Thank you, Amy! The Lupers
