About Amanda

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
About Me:

Lifelong adorer of dogs. A year and a half ago my family lost our beloved German Shepherd, Keiko, who lived to the ripe old age of ten (for a dog who weighed 140 lbs, it’s pretty impressive!). Giving your dog the extra love and care I can’t shower upon my darling girl anymore is therapeutic gift for me.

I have been a volunteer at the Washington Animal Rescue League and the Washington Humane Society (before they merged), and have 12+ years of dog sitting experience for other families. Even though I do not have a dog currently, I still prefer to have a meet and greet with you to get a feel for your dog’s personality and temperament.

The Nitty Gritty:

I live in a 769 sq ft. apartment in a pet-friendly building, so there are lots of other dogs around, but not in my apartment itself. Due to certain dog restrictions at my building, there are certain breeds I am not allowed to host, including: Pit Bull - Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Pit Bull - American Staffordshire Terrier, Pit Bull - American Pit Bull Terrier, Perro de Presa Canario, Alaskan Malamute, Akita, Bullmastiff, Doberman Pinscher, Rottweiler, German Shepherd Dog, Tosa, and Dogo Argentino.

I live right next to the Curtis bike trail, which is excellent for long car-free walks, and several parks. I am primarily available for weekend dog stays and walking, because I work full time during the week.

I do leave the dogs to do errands or for short meetings etc., but I am never out of the home for more than ninety minutes when I'm hosting a dog. I take only one guest dog at a time to ensure proper care and attention.

If you book through me, please remember to bring the following things when you drop off your pup:

1. Enough of your dog’s food for the length of their stay, and at least two days worth of additional food (in case of delays). If you do not have time to purchase food, please let me know and I will add it via a custom quote.
2. Any medications/vitamins/dog treats (I have ample experience caring for dogs that require daily administration of medicine).
3. Leash and collar/harness (I have experience walking/training dogs to use a gentle leader as well).
4. A bed or blanket (or if you don't have one, something that smells like home).
5. A favorite toy (if your dog has one).
6. Your dog's vet information.

*For repeat customers: If my schedule shows as unavailable and your dog has previously stayed with me, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you!

Please Note: All pets in my care must have up to date shots (including vaccines for Rabies, Bordetella, and DHLP), be on tick and flea medication, be spayed/ neutered, and house trained. Also, if you are unable to pick your pup up before 11am on the last day of the Vacay, I charge an additional full day's rate (I feel bad, but there have been several instances of late pickups that have necessitated me to adopt this policy).

No one can replace your dog’s pack (that’s you!), but my goal is to make your dog feel as comfortable and happy as possible while you are away. That means lots of love, play, walks, and following your requested schedules for feeding are a given! I also can provide transportation to a vet in case of an emergency. I would love to send you updates, pictures, and videos so you can rest assured that your pup is doing well!

Amanda was great with our hound dog Conner! She gave us continual updates and photos throughout the weekend. We would definitely recommend Amanda and hope to use her services again soon!
Amanda was extremely professional and personal. She was flexible and friendly, I cannot say enough good things. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter.
Amanda was great! She was extremely professional when we met her, asked all the right questions and took detailed notes. Our dog had a great stay with her and we could tell from the pictures that Amanda sent daily (thank you!) that she was getting lots of attention and TLC. It's really hard to find someone you can trust to take care of your pet and love them for you when you can't be there -- Amanda was all that and more. We will definitely use her again for our dog!
Amanda was an excellent sitter for our dog, Auggie! She was extremely responsive to messages, conscientiously took notes about Auggie's needs and care, made sure to double check on several things, and was more than flexible with our drop off and pick up schedule. She also kept us updated on how Auggie was doing with several pictures and messages. Auggie slept the entire following day so he must have had a great stay! We are very happy with Amanda's care and hope to use her again soon. Thanks again!
We had a vacation booked and paid for, and then found the perfect addition to our family - Sally. We were really worried about leaving her behind. Especially as she had shown nervousness around some of our dog loving friends. Amanda agreed to take on Sally's care.

She showed her the care and calm Sally needed. They seemed to have really connected. The stay went much better than I expected. And Amanda took care of us too. Sending pictures and little notes, asking questions when needed. This allowed the whole family to enjoy vacation knowing Sally was in good hands. She even left a note to help everyone reconnect when we got home.

The kids are already asking when Sally will stay with Amanda next!
