About Amanda

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
It's simple: I already love your dog. These critters stole my heart a long time ago. Friendly, trained, non-aggressive, behaved dogs are welcome!

I have fostered, been a 2nd mom and dog sitter to many dogs over the years and have solid references. I love to walk, hike, jog, bike, pet, snuggle, teach, brush and love on dogs. It drives my friends crazy (I stop to pet every dog I see), though not ready for a dog of my own.

I only board 1 dog at a time, or siblings + I do 3 walks/day minimum. I have a townhouse and I will walk/jog your pooch around my neighborhood where other dogs walk, Greenlake, hike in Carkeek, walk the pooch to friends houses or Chucks for a beer.

*Please note: I live in a 3-level townhouse with 2 flights of stairs. If your grandma/grandpa doggie has a hard time with stairs I won't be a good fit.*

**Please note: pick up and drop off between 7am-10pm only. After that it's another day.**

Give me a try because I already love your dog.

Amanda was awesome! She sent us several pics while our dog was on Vacay, and even bought our pup's love with some rawhide treats! Would happily recommend Amanda and would certainly let her keep Darby again.
Amanda is a fabulous dog sitter. She took great care of my elderly dog for an entire month, while I was out of state.
She's the best: responsible, took my dog out to social events and was responsive, when I later had to have a surgery and recovery dragged on longer than expected.
I would strongly recommend Amanda.

I felt my dog had a great experience and I would definitely use Amanda again!!
I'm glad that we did the doggy daycare with Amanda. My dog, Cappuccino, came back tired and just wanted to rest. Not really sure what she did, but it was great!

The only reason that I gave her a 4 stars instead of 5 was because of the technical problem with the website which didn't show her address/phone number after it's been booked. So I kept writing and asking her about it but didn't hear back from her until the day of the daycare. Luckily she sort out the confusion, but wished that it was identify and sorted out beforehand (especially when I was already at work the next day and found out there is issues).

Anyhow, I will definitely be back as a recurring customer for Amanda though!

Amánda truly is the dog whisperer, and deserves a 100 star rating! She took extraordinary care of our incredibly shy and skittish dog, Cleo, for four days. In the past five years, Amánda is the first person to get kisses and genuine snuggles from Cleo (Cleo generally trusts no one... but loves Amánda!!) We are so grateful to have found such an amazing person to watch our pup... finally. A thousand thanks to a genuinely amazing person who is truly a dog lover. Highly recommended!

Amanda was wonderful an accomodating, after I had to reschedule a previous week, she took my newly adopted a pup a few weeks later, giving me good updates and with flexible dropoff/pickup time.
Amanda was amazing! She took great care of Russell for a last minute two night getaway, and it was obvious that he enjoyed his time with her and that he loved being at her house. We would definitely use Amanda in the future and recommend her to others :)

Amánda is amazing! From the moment she met our pup, I felt confident he would be getting lots of love and tlc while were away. She sent us pictures and updates during our trip and took him on lots of adventures to dog parks in the area. We came home to a tired and happy dog, and we will definitely be booking with Amánda again. Thank you!!

Five stars. Amanda was awesome, great with the dog, great with communication.This was my first experience with leaving my older dog, since I got him from rescue. She is very caring, sent me a daily photo and my dog was so relaxed when I picked him up.

From the first time I met Amánda, I could tell she was going to be a loving dog-sitter. Sounds like Maeby had a great weekend with her - Amánda kept her active, taking her to the woods, the dog park, and apparently even a church! Amánda was also very accommodating for pick-up and drop-off. Maeby will definitely be back at Amánda's soon!

Amanda was caring, attentive and genuinely seemed to love what she is doing. We enjoyed the photos she sent and were really happy that she took our dog to his usual dog park. We would gladly use her again, an added bonus she lives in our neighborhood.

Amanda was a wonderful host for our dog. She took Batman out for walks, swimming, and was very flexible with dropoff/pickup. I would definitely recommend her, especially if you have an active dog like ours that needs lots of exercise!
Wally just got back from a fabulous 9 days with Amánda! Wally doesn't like it when we leave him, so it's very important to us that he stay with someone who will spend lots of time with him and show him lots of love. Amánda definitely did that.

We got regular updates with photos showing what a great time Wally was having, and it sounds like he got to go to lots of fun events. By the time we got home, he was so tired from all the fun that he curled up on the couch to take a long nap.

Amánda also gave Wally his vaccine shot while we were away. Though she hadn't given dogs shots before, she was very comfortable with it once we explained the steps.

We will definitely be using Amánda in the future whenever possible!

Amánda was just the best. She was incredibly accommodating for our least minute request, and was so sweet with our puppies. She sent us some pictures, and they came back happy and sleepy. Absolutely would recommend her to anyone!
