Amy is so patient with my little guy who is skittish around strangers. She spends time playing with Frankie and sends an update with photos daily. I can highly recommend You Lucky Dog services without reservation!

Patient With Nervous Pups

We have had such a positive experience with Amy and You Lucky Dog. Our Pup, Bo, is a nervous and shy pup. Amy has worked patiently with him and now he dances around when she comes and engages with her even more than he does with our family. She also provides us with photos and a lengthy pupdate after her visit, which we look forward to when we are out. We would highly recommend Amy and You Lucky Dog to anyone who is looking for a dog or pet sitter.

Consistent With Routine

We are SO fortunate to have found the You Lucky Dog team! They are simply THE best! Our Scottish Terrier mix, Porter is a really easy-going playful guy that loves everyone, I, on the other hand, am a bit protective and neurotic about consistency with his routine and details (ex: wiping his paws off, checking for ticks when they’re in season etc). I have no worries with Porter in their hands. You Lucky Dog has always been accommodating and clearly LOVE what they do!

The Perfect Match

My dogs are certainly lucky dogs to have Amy and You Lucky Dog as part of their lives. I have spent the past two and a half years interviewing and researching a replacement dog walker after losing our previous walker. It’s hard to find that special person who you feel safe entrusting with both the four-legged members of your family as well as with your home. I knew within minutes of meeting Amy that we had finally found that perfect someone.
