About Amanda

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi,

My name is Amanda, all my life I have been surrounded by and working with dogs of all sizes and temperments. I currently nanny which makes my work hours very flexible and allows me to spend my free time volunteering and fostering for a NYC based dog rescue.

I reside in beautiful upstate Putnam county on 10+ acres of land. I offer free transportation of your pup to and from my home for any stay of 3 nights or more. Your city doggie will have their own relaxing vacation while adhering to the same schedule and routines that exist at home making them feel more confident and secure in the change of environment. An average day for your dog will include lots of play time with my friendly pups, frequent supervised trips in my fenced in yard, and twice daily my wooded, secluded property allows for amazing leashed hikes and walks! We will end our days snuggling on the couch

Koda stayed with Amanda and her pups for two nights and had the best time! Amanda texted me frequently with the cutest photos of koda! We are so thankful. She also took us last minute and was so flexible with when we dropped her off and picked her up it made our weekend away so nice and stress free. We will definitely be using Amanda again!

Amanda is Amazing! I trust her over anyone else in the world with our dog Jeter. He had an amazing time on his Vacay which allowed us to relax on ours.
Amanda was simply perfect. Everything from arranging pick up, to keeping us updated throughout the day, and treating Oliver like a member of the family, was just a great experience.

We can tell that Oli had so much fun! He's definitely coming back for more one of these days. :)

Amanda was great with my buddy Jack. He isn't away from me that much and she made sure he was very comfortable and taken care of. She already had other dogs and she made sure Jack felt like part of the pack. She was very responsive and constantly updated me on how he was doing. Sent a bunch of pictures and Jack looked very happy and well taken care of when I picked him up. I would definitely book Amanda again.

Amanda was great! Kept me updated and sent pictures everyday. When I went to get my pup he was happy and healthy. We will def book her again in the future.
Amanda took my puppy at the last minute with no problems! I originally had him staying in a kennel and left for vacation feeling very uneasy with where he was staying. Thank goodness for Amanda, she rescued my little man and gave me thorough updates on how he was doing through out the week. I felt so comfortable leaving my pup in her capable hands!

Amanda was incredibly flexible and responsive to our time and Sherlocks needs. She lived near so came over to introduce herself to us and our boy, who seemed to love her on the spot. She shared pictures, videos, and texts daily about his progress with her pack. All of which she said she was lovable, funny, and playful. When I picked him up he was incredibly relaxed, which says that he was happy. We will definitely be asking Amanda and her pack for a visit again.

Amanda was a superb sitter for our beloved Eva. She drove all the way to Brooklyn to meet with us, and we knew almost instantly that she'd be the perfect person to care for our dog during an extended trip abroad. I would recommend her highly to anyone who values a personalized, professional, and genuinely caring approach to dog sitting.

Amanda went out of her way to accommodate our schedule - she came to our home to meet George and patiently listened while I listed his behaviors, needs and my anxieties about leaving him for 12 days in a new environment - she asked pertinent questions and it is evident that dogs are her passion. George, who can be fear aggressive and protective of me, responded to Amanda immediately in a loving and positive way - She is firm and loving! I went to check out her property which is a mini doggie paradise. Amanda further extended herself by chauffeuring George to and from his vacation spot so I could deal with my family. She sent frequent updates via text replete with pictures of George for a visual on how he was faring, including hilarious Fourth of July photos of our dog enjoying his independence from us! She made sure to check with me if she felt anything was amiss. I would leave George with Amanda anytime and with no reservation whatsoever.

I highly recommend Amanda!! She was great with my Dog and very quick to respond to me. She was caring and kept me updated on each visit. I would definitely use her again!! mike
I left Bentley with Amanda for a week from the end of June to the beginning of July. Initially, she was quick to resoond and flexible in order to set up a meet with Bentley. Upon meeting Amanda, she was extremely attentive and her love for all animals was quite noticeable. Throughout his stay, I received daily updates and pictures to show what a great time he was having with the other dogs. In all honesty, I felt bad taking him away from all his playmates. I could easily tell what a great time he had and how attentive was to him. I highly recommend her to anybody looking and will definitely be setting another sitting up with her the next time I go away.

Our two collies had a great time with Amanda! She took excellent care of them, including making sure to exercise them both individually with long games of catch. I love that during their stay she texted pictures of them so that we knew what they were up to--they always looked very happy--and provided a detailed report when I picked them up. We will gladly continue to board our dogs with her in the future!

Amanda is fantastic -- Boomer loves it there, and Amanda even helped him with some of his bad habits (barking at cats). Will never go anywhere else!
amanda is awesome, reliable, communicative and caring. she is flexible with scheduling a pickup/dropoff which is super helpful since flights can be delayed or something can come up. I would recommend her to any pet owner. Dharma will be staying with her again next week. I feel so good knowing she is with someone who loves animals (and rescues them too!)

Amanda is the absolute best! She knows how to take care of a dog properly and makes it very convenient to use her as a dog sitter. I could not recommend her enough!
Benji had the best time ever! Amanda sent me videos of him playing with the other dogs which help put me at ease that he was in good hands. Benji will be staying with Amanda while I'm on my honeymoon next month!
Butterscotch had a wonderful time staying over. Amanda went out of her way to make sure she was comfortable, and I especially appreciated the meet and greet beforehand. Thanks!
Amanda was fantastic. She picked our dog up and dropped him off (always on time) and she kept us apprised of his activities (with adorable pictures) throughout his stay. She was very sensitive to his needs and clearly adores dogs and takes wonderful care of them. I highly recommend her! stic

Amanda has been wonderful taking care of our Roxy. She sends us frequent updates with pictures that always put our mind at ease. We will definitely use her again!
Worried about leaving my two beagles with someone except for family for the first time as I went on vacation for a week was a stressful thought for me. The beagles have had a stressful year. Amanda is amazing. From the first interaction, to meeting me and the beagles at her home to meet her and her dogs, picking them up and dropping them off because my plans changed, Amanda was the best. Th e pictures and updates she send were assuring and shows my dogs having a great time. If you are looking for someone to care for your dog's so you can relax on vacation look no further.

Amanda sent some videos of my dog playing with her lovely dog that she was fostering. The property was beautiful, I picked up my dog and he was happy and tired.
Amanda was so great in being flexible with our schedule and took our dog on late notice. She asked tons of questions to make sure he would be comfortable staying with her. He seemed to have a great time with her and her dogs too! We (and he) are looking forward to another stay in the future. We would absolutely recommend Amanda for anyone in the area.

Amanda is great! The dogs love her and she is fantastic with them. She always goes the extra mile, sending pictures and comments so I know how the pups are doing.
This is the second time my dogs stayed with Amanda while I was away and they had a great time. I love the daily texts with photos of their activities. It's so nice to know that I can travel and know that my dogs are in good hands. Thanks Amanda!
Amanda is truly a gifted dog caretaker. Brooklyn, our dog can't stop giving her kisses when he sees her and I never worry for a second when she's with Amanda.
As a matter of fact, I always think she's having more fun with Amanda than she has at home because Amanda always has the best dogs at her place that Brooklyn loves to play with! I would def. recommend her to anyone! I have had the absolute best experiences and I know Brooklyn can't wait to go back!

This is the first time I've booked via Dog Vacay and I couldn't be happier. I recently moved to the area and I was concerned about finding suitable boarding for my dogs. I read Amanda's profile, asked her some questions and provided information about my dogs, including that my female is quite timid with strangers and needs extra attention. Amanda was great, replied quickly, and asked appropriate questions. She went out of her way to come meet my dogs before they boarded with her, sent me texts with photos and updates which gave me great peace of mind and allowed me to really enjoy my vacation. It's so great to be able to travel, knowing that my dogs will be well cared for when I'm away. Thanks so much, Amanda!

Amanda is exerptional but especially for NYC based dogs who she picks up/drops off so that they get to be in the country.
I got daily texts and photos, she's communicative and kind and a dog rescuer. A true gem. My dog was in the best hands and I will always have Dharma stay upstate when I can't take her with me!

I seriously couldn't ask for a better environment for my dog while I was away .
He is at the country , socializing with many other dogs , and always being supervised by Amanda's amazing leadership .
I saw Amanda in action leading the whole group , she is very loving and super firm at the same time , so my dog is having the time of his life , and at the same time practicing obedience .

For me a good treatment for my dog includes a daily physical activity , discipline and affection , and he gets that in an amazing way under Amanda's care .
So far I left for my vacation knowing my kid is getting the best care , and I can rest my mind and really enjoying my time off .
