About Amanda

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My name is Amanda!!! I am a college student/mom to a handsome, happy 8 year old boy, 2 awesome huskies, and a super friendly cat who thinks she's a dog, and two hermit crabs.

I have been caring for animals of all sorts since I was very young. I grew up with cats, birds, fish, hamsters, some reptiles (geckos to be exact) and of course, dogs!!!! I have mostly had and worked with medium to large breeds, but have had the pleasure of working with some little ones too.

My son is here part-time, but is great with animals of all kinds and has a cat at his fathers home that he cares for. He along with my other animals are great playmates for your best friend!!!

We are home most of the time. We live in the city in a residential neighboorhood. My house is spacious and my yard is fenced (wood slats, no gaps, over 6ft high) so your pet will pretty much have free roam of the house and yard. The yard stays locked and I have security cameras on my property as well. I am a jogger and would love nothing more than to have some four-legged company on my jogs! (or we can just walk). :-)

I have been caring for animals as long as I can remember and know how important our fur babies are. I will give them the utmost care and attention! I have worked with aggressive dogs in the past, but will have to carefully consider taking on a people's aggressive dog for my sons safety. I am more than happy to keep them in a sectioned off part of the house or yard though. If your dog has aggressive tendencies, I will consider them on a case by case basis. Your pet/pets are in capable and loving hands!!!

Thank You!

I met Amanda through and I have used her services several times now. She does does a great job with my dog Chance and makes it very easy and convenient for me.

She is friendly and has a big backyard for him to run around in!He is very energetic but also well behaved.

My dog enjoys playing with her two huskies and is always happy when I come to pick him up!
Sometimes he looks like he does not want to leave!

Amanda is flexible and works with my schedule every time.

Although she is great I try not to ask too much of her while watching Chance because she is a popular sitter and I trust that she is giving him the attention he needs
Amanda was great! She was flexible when we scheduled our appt with short notice. We had our dogs with her for 9 days while we were gone for our wedding and she kept in touch to let us know how they were doing and sent pics. We will be using Amanda for future trips/needs.
Frank loved being with Amanda. She took care of him in her home for a weekend, and sent me photos and updates every day. When I brought him home he was tired from playing so much! I would highly recommend Amanda.
Unfortunately, I was very disappointed with Amanda. She was not present for either the drop off or pick up times, although the times had been agreed upon by the both of us. I did not meet her at all. Instead, her neighbor received us, who I witnessed yelling at and swatting another dog in the house. I was very uncomfortable with leaving my puppy, but could not make last minute changes. Amanda did not give me regular updates, and said that I should not expect photos even once a day, saying, "expect pics every other day, or every couple of days." When I pressed for at least one daily photo, Amanda responded with, "I'll see what I can do," and, "I'll send a pic when I get around to it." Other text messages of hers were passive-aggressive as well, and I often sensed that she was annoyed with my puppy. She didn't seem to be aware of normal puppy behavior, and told me she was upset that he had picked up her slippers & shoes with his mouth. It took Amanda several hours to respond to my text messages, and I always had to initiate the updates. Certainly not least of all, my poor puppy absolutely reeked of cigarette smoke when we picked up him. So much so, that my car and hands also smelled of smoke when we got him back. I have had positive experiences with Dog Vacay in the past, but I would absolutely not use Amanda as a host again.
My dog was very happy when I picked him up. I was relieved that he was taken care of while I was gone and he got to play with other dogs. It was a great experience for both of us.
This was our first time experience with Dog Vacay and Amanda. We are very pleased with the good care that our little boy Cocoa received while with Amanda. Great communication and updates from Amanda while we were gone. We definitely recommend both, Dog Vacay and Amanda. We definitely use it again. We consider Amanda our sitter from now on.Thanks for your great service.
Amanda was great!! I would use her again for dog sitting.
Amanda was great! I received lots of updates and pics. Her pups are very sweet and I am sure would get along with any dogs. My dog seemed happy and well cared for when we picked up. I highly recommend!
I am a very happy customer. This is the first time I have used any dog care service aside from pet hotels. Amanda did a great job and my 8 month old rat terrier Chance looked as though he did not want to leave when I arrived to pick him up. He was more calm then when I initially dropped him off. He played with her baby huskie and they had a great time. I was gone for 6 days and Amanda kept consistent timely communication with me via text. Also when he started to run low on food toward the last day of his stay she made him a natural food mix of rice and beef for him to eat. I would highly recommend going through her as a sitter and have had a good first time experience with using!
Amanda was extremely accommodating when it comes to the needs of my dog. I am inclined to bring my pet back the need arises and she is available. Thank you Amanda!
Amanda was very nice to me and my dogs. I would use her service again.
