About Amanda

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My home is set up to host dogs, and has a huge yard! I have been fostering rescue dogs and petsitting for 10 years, and am experienced with all types of pets.

***PROFILE UPDATE - As of November 2013, I will no longer be working from home. I will still be petsitting on a limited basis. Your dog must be ok with being alone during the workday (with a midday potty break) and drop offs and pickups must be outside of work hours. Please feel free to message me with any questions.***

I can accommodate for any behavioral, medical, or social requirements your pet may have. Your dog will enjoy their vacation here while you enjoy yours! Doggie vacationers will love the huge securely fenced backyard. Come relax here with lots of treats, attention, playtime, and belly rubs! Crate can be provided upon request. I have one resident dog, a 10 year old spayed and vaccinated Sheltie mix named Farrah, who is used to having other dogs around. She can also be kept separate from your dogs if needed.

She had a great time!
Auggie had another good experience at Amanda's. He loves playing chase in her big back yard.
Amanda is very accommodating.
Auggie had a great time at Amanda's.
Highly recommended! Amanda was flexible in times to pick up and drop off our dog, even around holidays. Our dog was better socialized since he was always around at least 1 or 2 other dogs during the visits. Her rate was reasonable. We felt safe leaving our dog with Amanda.
My little girl came home one tired, but very happy puppy!!! She had the BEST CARE... just like home!!!
Amanda was great! Our dog, Piper, had a great time and we'll definitely send her back to Amanda the next time we go out of town!
Amanda was very sweet and flexible. She sent pictures of Grover via text to keep me updated while I was out of town. Grover came back to me very happy and energetic! I feel very comfortable recommending Amanda :)
She's fantastic and put me ease immediately during our meet and greet! I will definitely use her again -- my doggies had a great time!
Amanda is great! My puppy has a lot of anxiety and isn't too sure of other people or dogs. He took right to Amanda. She was very patient with him. He loved being able to run and play in her backyard. She will always be my first choice!!!
Amanda, Is great! She loves dogs and has the perfect place and location for my travels. Thank you DogVacay and Amanda!
Amanda was so accommodating and very accessible! We were always able to contact her if we wanted or just let our dog enjoy his DOGGIE VACAY! Why leave your dog in a cage/kennel while you are gone when you can have someone who cares to continue to love your loved one! Thanks AGAIN!
Amanda was great! She was very responsive and sent pictures of the dogs while we were gone. I will definitely let my dogs stay with her again!
Amanda was very responsive and easy to deal with. She took great care of our dogs. We would definitely book with her again!
Amanda was incredibly accommodating to my schedule and a pleasant person to deal with. I recommend her highly.
Our dogs have stayed with her multiple times and they are well cared for and happy. :)
Amanda was great! She was easy to get in touch with to check on my puppy and he had a great time! :)
Amanda is awesome! She had no problem keeping our neurotic rescue dog for a week, and she even got her to interact with other dogs and her cat. We will definitely hire Amanda to keep Sonia again.
Amanda was great. She sent us pictures of our dog during our vacation and gave us regular updates. I would highly recommend her!
Spencer loves going to Amanda's house when we go out of town! She is incredibly flexible about drop off and pick up times, and so obviously treats her "guests" like her own. A++++++
Our two dogs had a great stay with Amanda and came back nice and tired after playing with her dogs for the weekend. She was very responsive, provided us with text and picture updates, and clearly is experienced with taking care of animals of all kinds. We would definitely leave our dogs with her again in the future.
Amanda was great! She accommodated our schedule, and kept us updated about how Kodi was doing. He loved her big back yard! We would love for him to stay with Amanda again!
Thanks so much for taking such great care of our baby!!!!!
Amanda is very accommodating, and friendly. This was Dudley's second visit and he was clearly excited to arrive at Amanda's house, so he thinks she's Pawsome! She knows what she's doing, and has no trouble taking care of my 95 lb, excitable puppy - the term "dog whisperer" comes to mind!
Spencer's "sleep-away camp" at Amanda's house was great! She sent pictures of Spencer periodically, and if I texted, she responded promptly. I am already booking Spencer's next stay with Amanda.
Amanda was very sweet and took great care of our dog. He came home happy and exhausted. :)
Mocha rates Amanda K. a 5 star and we would absolutely recommend her. Right away we found her to be calm and knowledgeable. Amanda is prepared with a contingency plan, local support and she knew our Vet and we were familiar with her local vet. Mocha has stayed with another local provider and has not had an emergency in the 10 years since she joined our family as a pup. In the event of an emergency with any other pup, I believed my/others' pets would be attended to. We researched another provider but were more comfortable with Amanda. Rosemary Miguel Charlotte NC
Our dog had an awesome week at Amanda's!! She is not used to having a large, fenced-in yard to play in, and clearly had fun while we were gone. She didn't want to leave when we came to pick her up! And she made it easy to drop her off - at home, she gets upset when anyone peaves the room, but she was so busy playing right off the bat, she didnt even notice when we left. We give our dog a couple supplements to keep her healthy and Amanda didn't miss a thing! She was very accommodating to any of our needs and seems capable and confident to handle any situation.
If you are on the fence about who to choose for your dog's care, have a meet-and-greet with Amanda and the choice is clear! I will definitely use Amanda for any future vacations.
Very good. My dog will stay with her again.
Amanda was great! She was flexible with our late pick up hour. Max had a blast with the other dogs, he can't wait to go back!
Amanda was incredible. I was a little hesitant and worried about leaving Jack with someone he didnt know. He has some mild aggression towards little dogs and cats and she has a cat so I was also worried about that. While I was gone Amanda sent me an updated text letting me know how Jack was doing and that he was getting along with everyone. When I picked him up after vacation he wasnt even worried about the cat rubbing against him or the dog next to him. I was shocked. Amanda is awesome and SUCH a great host for these sweet animals. I'd recommend her EVERYTIME!
Very accomodating and caring for Sweetie.
My mutts love their vacations with Amanda.
We (including my kids, Rocky, Tawny & Solly) are very pleased with Amanda's care and parties. They are ready to extend their visits. The individual caring is priceless. Thanks, Al
Amanda is awesome. She kept me updated with photos and emails while I was half way around the world, which really put me at ease. I will certainly use her services again, and can't thank her enough for taking care of my baby girl.
Amanda was awesome!! So glad we found a great doggie sitter for us. We are definitely going to use her again and again.
Amanda was great. My dog felt instantly comfortable in her home.
Everything was great. Nellie loved it. Can't wait to send her again.
Amanda was awesome! I requested a last minute meet and greet and she was able to schedule me in without issues. She has a very large fenced in yard and she provided my pup with her own bed to sleep in and cage to stay in while she was out. I got frequent picture messages and updates from Amanda throughout the few days she was there showing me how worn out and tired my pup was from playing all day. It was perfect and I couldn't have asked for a better first experience with and Amanda. I will definitely be using her services again next time I leave town and can't bring my pup. A+
