About Amanda

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**UPDATED PSA: I am currently now a SAHM since having my son back in 2014. This means, pet care I provide is limited to drop in care only with my son coming along, unless you are a previous client in which case I am open to staying overnight with my son in your location. I do provide dog training services as well. My son does not come along with me for those sessions. Puppy training is my specialty. I hope you will consider me for your future needs.**

A bit about me:

I am a certified dog trainer through Animal Behavior College and I am comfortable handling all types of dogs. I am also familiar with a DINOS (dogs in need of space) dog and have owned one myself which was a rescue I took off the streets. After rehabilitating and working with him for a little over a year, I was able to successfully find a suitable home for him. Dogs like him are my motivation to continue helping as much as possible.

I have owned all types of animals my entire life (34 years now), have rescued numerous animals off the streets, and have volunteered as well as worked with animal rescues and shelters. I have been an Animal Care Attendant and also worked as a handler and co-trainer with another dog trainer at his board and train facility in addition to owning my own dog training business. I have some vet tech schooling and am comfortable administering medications as well.

I currently own 2 cats and 1 dog. They are both rescues. When I am providing out of home pet care services for others, my husband cares for our pets.

I am happy to provide care for other types of animals too besides dogs. I have cared for bunnies, guinea pigs, fish, ferrets, cats, etc. Let me know how I can help!

Amanda stayed with our dog over the holidays. We were more than happy with her services. We received regular pictures and updates about our dog. When we returned our dog didn't even seem to miss us and the house was left so clean I couldn't even we returned our dog didn't even seem to miss us and the house was left so clean I couldn't even tell she had been staying here. I highly recommend Amanda!

I have 2 senior Husky dogs with one on meds for his condition and a 1 yr old Aussie puppy, making their energy levels and needs at opposing sides. Amanda did a wonderful job giving each the attention they need and are used to as well as helping Amanda did a wonderful job giving each the attention they need and are used to as well as helping with the puppy's on going obedience training. She dealt with any challenges professionally and willingly. Having Amanda stay in my home gave me peace of mind that all would be well with my dogs while I was away.

Amanda did a terrific job watching our 4 dogs, 2 chinchillas and our cat. We were gone for an extended trip (3 weeks). Amanda was available for 2 of those weeks. It made our vacation that much more enjoyable knowing that our pets were in good of those weeks. It made our vacation that much more enjoyable knowing that our pets were in good hands. Amanda walked the dogs multiple times per day, and they were very content upon our return.
