About Amanda

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My parents got a puppy a year before I was born, so from day one I grew up with a dog who I considered fully part of the family. By the time I was ten, I was a full participant in his care. I really miss having a dog around the house. I have a garden that dogs love to play in, and live in Park Slope, only two blocks away from Prospect Park, where I love walking through it with a dog. I'm extremely affectionate and energetic enough to tire the dog out just in time for napping.

Amanda lives on the bottom floor of a brownstone with access to a enclosed outdoor garden, which would be great for your pup to run around and get some fresh air.

She also is located very close to Prospect Park so on nice days, a trip to the park is very doable! She is very sweet and is a great, affordable option for your dog!
Amanda was very responsive and flexible and my pup got some nice, long walks in the park. My pup also keeps trying to go to her building whenever we are anywhere near her block so I think he has a very high opinion of her, too. Best host experience that I've had here.
Amanda is the best. This is the third time I've left my dog in her care and I'm just so grateful she lives nearby and is a DogVacay host. She always sends photos and updates, and I know that while I'm on vacation, my dog is on vacation too: Amanda takes him on long walks, trips to the dog park, and plays with him in the backyard. Again, she's the best!
Amanda was great with Cyan. She sent me daily updates with adorable pictures of Cyan playing in her back yard and in the park! Will definitely use Amanda again!
Amanda was wonderful! She sent updates and my dog looked like she was having a blast! Amanda was flexible with my pick-up and drop-off schedule and I would absolutely leave my dog with her again.
i am a crazy dog mom. i will just put that out there. i've never left my dog with anyone but family in the five years i've had him, so you can imagine my stress when realizing i had a trip but no sitter. enter amanda - from start to finish, i can't imagine a better experience. her space is really great - lots of room for any pup and the enclosed garden is a huge bonus (especially because my dog is a diva and will get super anxious about walking in new neighborhoods). she provided me lots of proactive updates - pictures, videos, etc. i felt comfortable the entire time and am so glad i booked with her and would do so again in the future without hesitation.
Amanda was a great host and my dog had a really nice stay! She was very responsive and accommodating throughout the visit and sent lots of updates with photos. My dog enjoyed the garden out back, and was allowed to take over Amanda's house and sleep on the furniture - which I'm sure made him feel right at home. Five stars!
This was our first time using DogVacay and we couldn't be happier with our experience thanks to Amanda. She provided regular updates, pictures, and videos and was very responsive. It put our minds at ease knowing Levi was well taken care of while we were away. Highly recommend!
Amanda was amazing!! She sent daily updates/photos of my pup and it was clear that he was having a blast. My dog has tons of energy and she made sure he was happy and well exercised. We highly recommend her and we will definitely re-book with her again. A+++
Incredible! So loving toward my dog and always sent updates!!
Amanda was great. She made it very easy to drop off Lucy. She took her to the park and sent photos of her in the lake. She was really easy to communicate with.
Amanda is an amazing sitter! I don't have the easiest dog in the world -- high-energy, loves to bark, doesn't love strangers -- but he had a blast hanging out at Amanda's house (especially in the spacious backyard).

Amanda is clearly an animal lover and I felt very comfortable leaving my dog in her care. Even though I only dropped him off for the day, Amanda still made sure to send me a photo of him running around in the garden and napping on her couch.

TL;DR - Amanda is an excellent dog-sitter and I'd highly recommend her to anyone.
Excellent service !! Amanda was great i was so happy to see my Pumpkin she was neat and clean just as I dropped her off she had a wonder stay. Pumpkin and I are looking forward to Amanda watching her again ~ Thank You Amanda
