About Amanda

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello I am Amanda and I am a stay at home mom to a tough toddler boy. We are trying to create our little homestead here in the "burbs".

I was raised in Wyoming and Texas. Growing up we always had animals ranging from dogs, horses, cows, chickens, goats, and rabbits. I was in 4H most of my younger life. There has never been a day in my life where I have not owned a dog. Dogs are something I could never live without. We have two dogs of our own; Barley and Porter. We consider our pets part of the family.

We also have chickens on our property, but they are separated from the dogs. Our house is very dog and kid friendly. We love being outside most of the day playing in our gardens and running around with our pets.

Our homestead boasts plenty of room to run and explore. When its time to relax or get out of the weather we have a large covered outdoor patio. The dogs come in the house at night or whenever is necessary. Our dogs sleep in the kitchen on pet beds. We can also kennel when needed depending on what keeps your pooch happy.

Your dog will also feel like they are part of our family. We will treat them the same as our animals. Please feel free to ask me any questions. We hope you find our home to be inviting and friendly for your best friend!!

UPDATE: 1/5/2016
We now have a 1 year old daughter and she is all over the place. So with our two children we ask that your dog be great with kids. If it is not or even the slightest bit of hesitation then we are not the right sitter for your needs.

Also our older dog is going through some health issues so we will only be taking one or two dogs at a time. She is quite moody with large dogs (Danes OK) and energetic dogs. So we will also ask at this time that if you have a large dog or very energetic pup we will not be a good fit.

If you need a place for a dog to chill, be cozy and enjoy some grass playtime then we are here to help. Thank you for your understanding while we transition through a phase in life.

As always we would love to help if its a good fit!!

I was so happy to get connected with Amanda on DogVacay. I met her and her beautiful family only briefly before I felt 100% comfortable and confident leaving my little Mia in her hands. She updated me with pictures of my pup having lots of fun and getting a lot of love. I highly recommend her!
It is always such a relief to know that your precious pups are being cared for and taken care of even when there are things like medication to administer. Amanda was great with my dogs and the occasional photo really helped to put my mind at ease.
Sweet family. Very loving with our two rascals. We are blessed to have met them. We will definitely use them again for our two lovely babies.
