About Amanda

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! I have a 15-year-old mix breed pup, Chloe, who enjoys sleeping all day and long walks around the community! Your pup will be well taken care of with at least 4 walks per day (and weather permitting, dog park visits!) Chloe is a bit grumpy, and mostly ignores pet visitors, so a hyper pup may not be the best fit.

Your pup will have free range of the house and is welcome on furniture (unless you instruct not to). **I live in a townhouse, and the main living level is on the 2nd floor. I don't mind carrying a small pup up/down, but larger pups may not be a great fit** I have the ability to work from home on some days and will work with you to best fit your pup's needs! If I do go into the office, I do have a mid-day dog walker that comes and can take the pups out for a potty break, or I come home mid-day and telework the rest of the evening!

On the weekends, I am usually home except for an errand here and there. When I do leave the house, the pups are always separated, Chloe usually stays gated in the kitchen area and the other pup has free range (unless otherwise noted by owner).

I treat guest pups as they are my own and they will receive lots of love and cuddles! I love all dogs of all sizes and breeds!

Drop-off/Pick-up times are flexible, but I typically prefer them to be between 6am-9pm. If it needs to be later, an extra night may be best, especially since we can never trust some of those airlines!

I typically only take 1 pup at a time, unless it's a repeat client who I've worked with before, and know their dog's tendencies. If you prefer a solo guest, just let me know and I'll be more than happy to accommodate!

Buster really enjoyed himself with Amanda. She was very considerate in sending pictures daily of his activities. I would send Buster back with Amanda.
Amanda was SO awesome! My dog Cece is an older, skittish dog who prefers a lot of attention. Cuddling gives her a sense of security. I could tell Amanda has a "way" with dogs. Cece was immediately comfortable with her during our meet-and-greet. During Cece's stay, Amanda sent me several pictures via text of Cece lounging and snuggling. Cece had a wonderful, relaxing time during her "vacation" - lol. Thank you, Amanda!

Amanda was so easy to work with during our first experience with DogVacay. Our dog was well taken care of and we received updates regularly. We highly recommend her and look forward to using her in the future! Thanks Amanda!
Amanda provides the ideal boarding situation for my old dog Brenna. She provided tons of pictures and updates and Brenna came home calm and relaxed.
Amanda was amazing at taking care of my two dogs and was very accommodating when my flight cancellation created a delay in being able to pick them up. From the pictures that she sent daily I could tell that they were having a great time and being well taken care of which helped me to relax during my vacation. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter and will use her again.

Amanda was responsive, responsible and easy to work with. She has good common sense and is positive--that's great for the dogs and their humans too!
Amanda was a wonderful host for my golden retriever, Belle. She sent me regular updates and pictures of Belle throughout the weekend! I would highly recommend Amanda to watch your dog!
Amanda took great care of my Bella allowing me to be away without worry. Bella had a great time playing snd playing and playing ;-)
This was my first experience leaving my pup with Amanda. She was wonderful. Sent photos of my dog having a great time: playing, relaxing, enjoying Amanda's attention. It felt great seeing that I wasn't missed and my dog was in capable, caring hands.
Amanda (and Chloe) were great with our dog, Mason. She was professional, friendly, and spoiled Mason just like we do---even letting him share her bed! She was flexible with scheduling the drop off and pick up times. Thanks so much!!!
Amanda was AMAZING! Her care and attention to our Stella was fantastic. We got daily emails and photos about how our aging bulldog was. This has been the first time I have been able to leave our dog with someone and be worry free. We will be repeat customers for certain.

Amanda was great !! She was very prompt and kept us informed and up to date on our fella. She administered his medications and we will definitely look to use her on future trips.
Amanda was amazing! We had a somewhat last minute booking and she was incredibly flexible with arranging a time for our pups to meet and that flexibility continued with our drop-off and pick-up times! She has a beautiful home in an adorable neighborhood with plenty of outdoor space for your pet to explore. We got a ton of pictures and updates throughout Rocky's stay, and she truly treated him like he was her own! You can be confident that your pet will be in good hands with Amanda. We will definitely book with her again :-)

Amanda was great! She was able to come by and walk Kirby last minute. She kept me update with texts and pictures of Kirby. I would definitely hire Amanda again!
Amanda and Chloe were wonderful hosts for Mattie while we were away for our honeymoon. The pics came frequently (so nice for a dog mom leaving her baby for many weeks) and Mattie looked relaxed and calm. I can't thank Amanda enough for her awesome care of Mattie; it really set my mind at ease. :)

Amanda is kind, loving and takes great care of my pups. They are calm and happy when I return.
Amanda took such great care of Galileo. He had a wonderful stay! She provided updates with pictures during our trip, and she was flexible when we needed to change our pick up time. It's obvious that Amanda loves animals and she was incredibly compassionate toward our senior (and blind) dog. I whole-heartedly recommend Amanda!

Amanda was fantastic! She provided excellent care for our dog and went above and beyond, sending us photo/text updates throughout the day. It was our first extended trip apart from our pup, and Amanda did a great job easing our separation anxiety!
We are so grateful for the care that Amanda gave our dog while we were out of town. Amanda took the time to share updates and pictures several times a day, and this really helped ease our mind about leaving her. You could tell right away that Amanda loves animals, and we felt fortunate to have found her. We will definitely use her again!

This was our first time using a pet sitter. We were a little bit nervous about it but we were sure that we didn't want to leave Otto in a regular boarding place. We contacted Amanda because of her good reviews and location close to our place. She responded to our meet and greet request and accepted the first date we proposed.

We went to her place for the meet and greet and we saw that our dog connected with Amanda right away which was a very good signal. We also got to meet the resident dog, Chloe. She is an adorable 14 years old doggie about the same size of our dog. Chloe understandably got a little bit grumpie when Otto attempted to eat her food but we didn't see any potential issues with their interaction.

All in all, we liked Amanda's way of handling the dogs as well as her place. Since she works from home, it is nice that she can keep an eye on the dogs most of the time.

We made the reservation for 5 days and we drop Otto at her place. Almost and hour later we got her first update via text message. This is probably the best part of the service that Amanda offers. She sends several updates per day and sometimes she also sent us pictures of our dog 2 or 3 times per day. This went a long way in helping us to give us peace of mind during our vacation.

Every time we wrote to her via text message she responded within minutes.

We had a great experience with Amanda and we will definetely use her services again. We totally recommend her.

Thank you so much for taking care of Flash! He seemed very comfortable and I would love for him to stay with you again :)
Amanda is a warm and welcoming person who my pups took to right away. She sent me several updates and pictures every day. My dogs were happy to see me but calm and relaxed- not the usual desperate energy when I've been gone. Excellent experience.
Amanda was an excellent host for our dog while we went away for the weekend. She was very accommodating as far as schedules, and when she realized that she would have another dog staying with her at the same time we'd booked for, she let me know well in advance in case I wasn't comfortable with that and wanted to find another sitter (my dog can be socially awkward and doesn't always get along with others). She sent plenty of updates and photos, so we always knew that Pepper was doing well, and she takes the dogs on several walks a day just like we do, so he was happy. Pepper did well, had a good time, and as an added bonus, Amanda lives very close to us. We will definitely use her again!

Amanda was great. My dog clicked right away with her and her dog. She sent email updates daily my dog was having a great time. In fact I was surprised she was playing ball. Doesn't do that at home. We will definitely be going back to Amanda when Greta needs a sitter.

Amanda was a great "hostess!" She was very sweet with our dog, who is older. She was very responsive and sent update text messages with pictures while we were out of town. We will definitely ask Amanda to watch our dog again when we go out of town.
Amanda was amazing! So considerate and attentive to our dog and sent us pictures and text updates throughout each day. Thank you!!!
Amada is the best. She is patient, kind, and very flexible. She truly loves dogs and cares about us humans too. Highly recommended for your dog's great care and your peace of mind
Amanda did a fantastic job. She kept us up to date on our dog's activities with photos and text. Our dog was relaxed and happy throughout the stay and when we picked her up. We plan to use Amanda again when we travel.
My girlfriend and I HIGHLY recommend Amanda. She gave us a lot of updates (via pictures). Levi had a great time. We would definitely bring our dog back
Amanda is a great sitter. I would recommend her without any hesitation!
Excellent! Amanda is great. She treats Cassie like a family member!
Amanda was super friendly and made Kobe and I comfortable with his stay. He seemed relaxed and I got regular updates on his day. Thanks sooo much!!
Quiet, calm environment. My dog is sensitive but Amanda makes her feel at ease. She is a cheerful, friendly host.
Amanda, is an excellent host for my Cassie. She is very attentive, considerate and caring. I highly recommend her as a host providing pet care.
