About Amanda

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

Hi! My name is Amanda and I absolutely love animals. I have cared for animals for years and always had pets ranging from dogs, cats, fish , birds, turtles and even horses.

Our dog Winston recently passed away at the age of 17 and we miss the company and caring for a dog, so we decided to provide excellent service and peace of mind for pet owners while they are away.

I have a nice pet friendly house located in Brickell with a large back yard. The house is located on a dead end street so there is very little traffic, making it a nice quiet neighborhood. I have minimal stairs, only two at the front door of the house making it a great place for older dogs or recovery animals to not have to struggle to get around.

Pets who board here will never get lonely and won't be restricted to only one or two rooms of the house. They are more then welcome to get comfy on the couch or snuggle with me in bed. I love to cuddle and play with the pets and enjoy taking them on lots of walks.

If the owner is comfortable with the idea I would also take them to the nearby dog park or beach. I want your dogs to get lots of attention and have fun and feel loved while there owners are away.
SAFE and Happy pets is what I strive for.

I will also be able to provide daily videos and pictures of pets to update owners.

I look forward to meeting and caring for your pets!!!

My dog Carol had a great time at Amanda's. Amanda is very responsive to messages, so I felt confident I could reach her quickly. I also appreciated the fact that we were able to do a meet n' greet before Carol's stay.
Thanks Amanda!
I know my dog was well taken care of by Amanda
Amanda is great!!! She even came to pick up and drop off my dog. She sent us pictures to update us and Kuma came back very clean! We are very pleased!
Amanda was able to help me out with a short notice booking. She was flexible with drop off and collection times. I had a delayed return journey but Amanda reassured me that it wasn't a problem and she fed and walked my pooch so that when I got home late and tired, I didn't need to go out again.
My dog was chilled when I collected her and I felt satisfied that she had been in good hands.
I would have no hesitation to take my pooch to Amanda's again. Thank you Amanda.
Our two frenchie pups are loving but definitely a handful. Amanda was great with them and sent pics throughout their stay. The pups were sad when she walked away, that says it all! Thanks!
Thank you
Amanda was great with our gentle giant Bruschi. He's a Great Dane and can be a bit high maintenance due to his size (and drool) but he seemed really happy his first visit to Amanda! Being that this was our first time leaving him with someone other than a close friend, she picked up on my worry and texte me throughout the weekend including sweet pictures of him relaxing. She was very flexible with my schedule and overall very accommodating. Can't WAIT for another stay with her! :)
Our dog had a great time at Amanda's! We left her for 3 days and Amanda was very responsive to my messages and sent me pictures of my furry baby. It was the first time I left my dog and it seems like she had fun, playing with the other dogs that were there.
Henry had so much fun staying with Amanda - she sent us updates and photos and he was one pooped pup when he came home from playing in the yard! Thank you Amanda for a positive experience!
Amanda was great - our 8.5 year old Boxer Duckie loved playing with her in our yard. We look forward to working with Amanda again!
I chose Amanda to take care of my Miniature Schnauzer Paco after searching DogVacay for someone with good reviews, who was relatively close to my house and allowed the dogs to stay inside the house, not on a limited area. She was very responsive to my messages and was available everytime. Paco was happy with the backyard, the walks and the fact that he could hang out at the sofa and the house in general. WEe are so happy we found Amanda because now we have someone to leave our Paco.
Amanda was so sweet and kind. She had a lot of knowledge about our sensitive breed, English Bulldogs. She sent us photos to put us at ease Winston had a great time. Thanks Amanda! Highly recommended.
Amanda S was a great sitter for Momo. Cordial, professional, caring, trusted and knowledgeable. I will use her again soon.
Izzy had a great time! She was very tired when she came back home so I know she played a lot and enjoyed her dog vacation!
She is the greatest EVER. This was my first time leaving my baby girl with someone not on our family or friends circle and she really liked her. The house is amazing for any type of dog and she is very loving. She will spending a lot of time with Amanda in 2 weeks since I will be getting married and she will have to be taken care off. I can not recommend her enough. Best decision ever.
Amanda is wonderful! My Boston Terrier loves to stay with her, and always comes home happy and relaxed. Amanda is extremely attentive and always sends pictures of my Nacho. I highly recommend her & am so thankful to have found her! ~Yvette
Amanda was wonderful! She took great care of our little pup while we were away and sent picture updates as often as we liked. I highly recommend her!
Amanda and myself never made it to Vacay day as well both had serious weather conditions that prevented this. I will say she was very accommodating in trying to figure out solutions for both of us. If I am ever in the Miami area again I would definitely contact her again.
Amanda took great care of my dog when I was on vacation. She was very nice and communicated with me regularly. My dog was happy and in great shape when I picked her up.
Amanda was awesome with our 2 English Bullies during a recent vacation. We received regular pics and reports. They really enjoyed their stay and we know they got much TLC, she treated them like they were her own. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a qualified & caring sitter,
We were nervous leaving our dog for the first time but Amanda did a great job alleviating our worries. She provided updates and photos and was always responsive to texts. I will definitely have Amanda watch Hope again.
Pepper had a great time at Amanda's for her first vacation. Amanda sent us texts or pictures everyday to keep us updated. Pepper will definitely be coming back!
Amazing all the way. The only thing is now choco misses Amanda.
Amanda was great! My pup stayed with her over an extended weekend and came back in good spirits, happy and healthy. This was his first time staying with someone other than a close friend or family member, and you wouldn't have known the difference. Thank you again!
I always get nervous when bringing my dog somewhere new but Amanda was great. I let her know that i enjoyed getting picture updates and once she knew that I got updates daily. I would definitely recommend her!
Have never left dogs anywhere before so I was very nervous and uneasy. Amanda was great. Took care of my 4 dogs with no problem. Very accommodating to last minute requests and super easy to work with. I've found my new pet sitter!!
Excellent puppy sitter! I would recommend Amanda to anyone who needs someone to love and care for their pet!
Amanda was great! She is very flexible and my dog liked her instantly. I will definitely user her again!
Amanda is great. She is quick answering my messages and is very reliable. My dog had an awesome time. Thank you.
Amanda was so great to my pup! She treated my Pranci as if she were her own. My 8 month old pug puppy came home tired, which is hard to accomplish! Amanda was easy to work with and sent lots of pictures of my pup! Will definitely use Amanda and her services in the future!
Hope must really like it because she runs right in when Amanda opens the door! There are other dogs for her to play with and I know she has a good time as she falls a sleep in the car on the drive home!
Amanda was awesome!!! This was my first time ever sending my pup away while traveling and I couldn't have asked for a better sitter. It was a long stay of 5 nights but I received daily photos and Amanda was always extremely responsive - usually messaged back within a minute if I checked in or had questions. She was also sitting other pups when I dropped her off and I loved that I knew my girl had lots of play time with other friendly dogs. Will definitely use Amanda again.
My puppies were sad to leave. I think that is the best description of their experience there.
Kiya came back super happy and energetic! Amazing animal lover!
My 3 month old american bulldog (Hiro) had a great time. She loved going to Amandas house everyday.
First time using the app and it went smoothly. Amanda was very nice over text messages and during our first meet. She kept me up to date. House was clean. Will definitely come back again.
Amanda is great. I've left my schnauzer with her twice and she loves it. I'll definitely continue to use Amanda
Kairo absolutely loves staying with Amanda! Before we met her, Kairo would act out and would refuse to eat whenever I left but now he doesn't miss a beat. Amanda says he is super playful and devours all of his food without a problem. He even sleeps in her bed with her and when I pick him up he is always a little hesitant to come back home! Amanda is also really great at keeping you posted and sending you lots of pictures so you can see how your pup is doing! Kairo always looks like he is having the time of his life in his pictures!
Amanda was very friendly and kept informed always !!!!
Amanda was great! Very accommodating and made our pup feel right at home. He was always so tired by the time we picked him up, so I imagine there was a lot of playing and exercise. Amanda also gave us photo and video updates throughout the stay which put me at ease.
Amanda was great and our baby, Ellie, had a great time. Would use again! Thank you :)
Amanda was awesome and clearly loves dogs. Abbey had a great time with Amanda.
Bella had a great time with Amanda. Amanda sent pics, videos and was very responsive. I will definitely use Amanda again!
My experience was amazing! Amanda is very nice, she always kept me posted with textes and photos. I really recommend her !!!
She Is the best! Kaiser loves her and she Always keeps me updated with him! sending pictures! And videos! I will choose her without any doubts
Amanda was very flexible and responsive. Winston seemed very happy when we picked him up. He really enjoyed playing with Amanda's dogs. We will want to have her take care of him again next time we need a dog sitter.
She was great. You can notice that she really love dogs and was great with all the updates on how Luna, our beagle, was.
Maggie had a great stay with Amanda! Amanda was very communicative and made it easy to arrange the drop off and pick up details, which was amazing! She watched Maggie while I was on a long road trip and kept me in the loop with cute pictures of Maggie on walks and playing outside. I'd definitely recommend Amanda as a pet sitter! She has a great house with a yard and gave my pup lots of love while I was away!
I never thought Fate was going to get along with someone like he did with Amanda! He sensed such a good energy from her. He stayed for one night first and we realized we could leave him for a whole week so that we could make our trip overseas !
Thank u Amanda!
I am so happy to have found Amanda but even more happy was my dog P.D. From the moment I dropped her off I could tell she was comfortable sniffing and roaming around Amanda's house. So comfortable that she even forgot I was there and I was able to sneak off without the sad guilty puppy eyes. When I picked her up 3 days later she looked relaxed and was even a little reluctant to leave - LOL. I don't blame her, Amanda's house is the perfect pet vacation. Amanda, you rock! Thank you so much for taking care of my baby.
Great host! Went on a cruise and needed a last minute place to board dog. Amanda came through with great service. Very professional and friendly.
FIVE STARS!! Amanda was great! She sent me daily updates and pictures of my French Bulldog Paisley and was EXHAUSTED when I picked her up so I knew she had a great time! :) The area is really nice and Amanda took Paisley on a ton of walks! I would recommend Amanda to any of my friends looking for a dog sitter in Miami!
