Buddy was happy to Amanda when we took him to her house. He went dashing up to her door as soon as we let him out of the car She exercises him - at bigger commercial dog-care businesses he seems to lie around all day. (I think she probably spoils him.)

Ripley had another great stay with Amanda. She loves going there so I know she's well cared for in a controlled environment. I can totally relax when I leave Ripley with Amanda!
Our dog loves her. Of course he should -- he gets better treatment and her house than at ours! She totally involves him and the other dogs in her care in their family life. She took him on an excursion to the dog park last week. He received lots of admiration from the other dogs and their humans. Amanda was quite proud of him.

Amanda was extremely easy to coordinate with and really looks to put your dog and its comfort first. My boy Rogue had a blast spending time with his new friends and can't wait to do it again.
Amanda is always so helpful and great with my pup!
Amanda is fantastic! I've had my two dogs stay with her in the past for daycare and most recently for boarding. Each and every time, I've been superbly satisfied. My favorite part, is she sends pictures of the dogs during the day.

I've worked at kennels in the past and seen too many dangerous situations for the dogs. I am extremely cautious about who my dogs stay with, but I have no reservations about my two girls staying with Amanda.

Amanda is great. Cash got a great walk and play day in! When he got home, he went straight to sleep.
Awesome as usual! Our baby was well taken care of and very happy. We love Amanda!
Amanda was amazing! She had just returned from a long run, but it didn't stop her from taking our 2 dogs on a long walk over an hour, and in the rain!! they slept the entire car ride home from Greensboro to Charlotte.
This was Ripley's second stay with Amanda and all went well. We received several updates during her stay and Amanda replied promptly when I inquired about how she was doing. Ripley seems to enjoy her stays with Amanda and the other dogs. I think the smaller home environment with just a handful of dogs is preferable over the larger doggy daycare centers, especially for Ripley who is 8 y/o. Also, not having to be crated or put into a run at night is a huge plus. Will definitely use Amanda for our future boarding needs.

Amanda is great! I always know when our girls are with her that they are having a fun time and are loved. She takes them for hikes & swims which are their favorite things to do! I know they feel at home when at Amanda's because they are excited to run inside when we pull up to the front door. Thank you, Amanda for being wonderful with Madi and Zoey!

Murphy came home happy and healthy. Seemed like she really had a great time. Amanda was nice, accommodating and asked plenty of questions to be sure she knew our dog. Would certainly use her again. Thanks!
This was Ripley's first stay with Amanda and the entire process went smoothly, from the meet-and-greet and reservation booking through picking her up last night. Amanda sent daily updates via text message and photos, and included
Ripley on her outdoor excursions! I felt comfortable leaving Ripley with Amanda and I'll certainly use her in the future for my pet sitting needs.

AMAZING!! Amanda took such great care of our pooch. He came home happy, safe and exhausted. She sent us regular pictures and updates on his stay. Found our new dog sitter. YEAH!
Amanda was awesome! She administered our dogs medicine and followed our directions to a tee. She is good with the dogs. We will use her again.
Amanda was a wonderful dog-sitter for our two Labradors, Owen and Oakley. When an out of town trip came up suddenly, she was very flexible accommodating the pups and when the flight arrived several hours late, she was understanding and allowed for late pick-up. She sent pictures daily, even multiple times daily, updating us on how the pups were doing (we were nervous parents since one of the dogs was only 10 weeks old at the time). After their stay, our dogs were worn out and slept well. On their return trip, they had no problems getting dropped off again. We have since moved away from the area but wish we still had Amanda available; definitely recommend!

5-stars. Great experience! Amanda took great care of our dog and made it easy for us humans to leave town for the weekend. Our dog was slower than hers, so she adapted and took ours on her own walks. Her home is relaxed and care-free, so the dogs are too. Peaches came home happy and ready for the week ahead!

As always, Amanda was terrific.
Really great host! I can tell Emma had a full vacay when I got her back. She was so tired and happy. Thanks! I'll definitely book with her again.
Excellent! Our "boy" stayed with Amanda for 10 days while we were on vacation. He always loves his visits and doesn't give us a second look when we leave him. We are so fortunate that we found Amanda.
Amanda was fabulous for my Weimaraner, Booma. She was willing to overlook some of his annoying behavior to see the sweet, loving boy we have come to cherish. She provided him with exercise and stimulation that kept him distracted from not being with his family. She was very communicative and flexible with me. I was also impressed with her overall knowledge of dogs and their behavior patterns.

I have 2 small dogs and was very concerned about leaving them in a house with a door. One is an escape artist. But Amanda was great assuring me that they would be contained and they were fine when we picked them up. She kept me informed while I was away and even sent pictures, so the experience was great and we will use her next time we have to go away.

Excellent!
I have complete confidence in Amanda. She graciously handles my quirky, semi-senile, little old feist with grace and humor. It is nice to relax knowing that Lovey is in good hands.
Loved the texts and pix.....kept me connected....Bentley was very happy when I picked him up....I am so happy with my experience with Amanda.....I've found his home away from home
Amanda is hands down the best dog walker/caretaker we have ever worked with. Can't recommend her enough!
Amanda kept all four of our pups over the weekend, and she was fabulous as expected! Our dogs love sleepovers at her house, and we love that they come home happy and worn out after having such a fun time with her. As long as she'll keep having us, we'll keep going to Amanda for all of our dog sitting needs. She is wonderful!

Amanda is awesome! She is very flexible with drop off and pick up times. We really appreciate her accepting our last minute reservation.
Best dog sitter we've had and we've tried several. They were well cared for, happy and CLEAN when I picked them up and we got updates and pictures while we were away. It's a real bonus to actually see your pets happy & content in unfamiliar surroundings and Amanda did a great job to show us they were!

Great experience. I have used her many times and plan on using her again in the future.
Terrific as always.
Amanda took wonderful care of our two dogs, we will definitely have her watch them again. Can't recommend her enough!
Amanda is amazing, she has taken excellent care of my dog. Pancho is always happy, he always feels at home with her!
Amanda was wonderful to keep us posted while we were away with news and pictures! One of our dogs didn't even get up when we came to her house to pick them up. They had fun and slept the day away the next day from the fabulous time they had at Amanda's. I would highly recommend her for your dog.

Amanda is fantastic! We have two lab mix puppies who spent a night and a couple of days with her. Amanda was wonderful with them. We had a meet-and-greet a few days before their stay, and Amanda really showed her care and concern for the dogs. She asked a lot of questions so she could understand how they're cared for and what their personalities are like. The boys were so excited to see her again when we dropped them off, and they seemed to have had a great time with her. We will definitely use Amanda's services again, and we would gladly recommend her to anyone looking for a caring home away from home for their dogs!

I feel like a broken record having to put in notes for every stay. Amanada is great, turst me.
I have used Amanda several times and she is terrific. She seems to care about my dog as much as I do and has provided a great home while I am out of town. I will be using her again shortly and highly recommend her.
Amanda was great with my dog Cole! She seemed to handle my dog, who can be noisy and very excitable at times without any problems. Cole really seemed to enjoy himself while at her home. It was our first time using Amanda, and I will use her again the next time we go away on vacation.

Amanda is great and we can tell that she truly loves dogs. We feel really good about leaving our dog in her care. We especially like the fact that the dogs stay in the house and are not confined.
Amazing host. Worked with my schedule and my dog seemed to love it.
Amanda is great with our dogs!
Amanda was great with our dogs. They were well loved over the weekend and came home completely exhausted from all the fun they had.
Amanda cared for our three little dogs for a week when my husband and I took a well-needed vacation last month. Our experience with Amanda was wonderful in every way! Not only is she a lovely person, but it was very clear that she loves dogs a lot. She took impeccable care of our pups and kept us informed as to how they were doing through text messages which included great pictures throughout the week. She took them for long walks every day, and also took them to a local dog park. They were fed, loved and kept gently "in line" when needed! Our dogs range from a bouncy four old, a calm and well-behaved nine year old and a somewhat grouchy 15 year old, and they were all happy and bouncy when we picked them up. We would use Amanda's services again and recommend her without reservation.
