About Amanda

Greetings! Welcome to Alexandria were people are extremely dog friendly--there are almost as many dogs here as people! We now offer 24 hour day care and overnight vacation stays..

You can be sure to know your doggie will have a blast here.

I have been caring for dogs for almost 6 years--I love all breeds, sizes and temperaments, as long as they can hang out with my resident pup, Max. He's a 6 year old small dachshund who loves to run and play ball, loves new faces.
In spite of his little grey hairs Max has lots of energy. He is friendly and is the wonderful companion.

Your dog will get plenty of indoor and outdoor play, walks and rest while they're at my place. I also can provide transportation to a vet in case of an emergency.

I indulge my guests. My refreshing ambience, innovative and thoughtful amenities help provide the stay that leaves your dog feeling better than when they arrived.
Three or Four walks a day,more if needed..

There is a park located on Braddock Road just minutes away.

Offered Amenities:
-minutes from public transit

Background Information:

I am responsible, respectful and mindful of your loved ones needs. Nothing but loads of love is what to expect for your dog. Max is never crate bound.

Notes: I will only take less than 20lbs and all immunizations/flea medications must be current.Only take two dogs at a time.

Once again, Amanda is amazing. Rocko loves her and Max. He had a great time and was pooped out as usual after his stay. Amanda is attentive and takes great care of our Rocko every time. We can relax knowing he's in good hands. Thanks again, Amanda. See you next time.

Amanda is a great dog sitter who is conscientious and caring. She keeps your dog active and having fun and sends you lots of pics and videos to keep you feeling close to your baby even though you're away.
Amanda is a wonderful sitter. Max is a sweetheart and very hospitable with allowing guests into his home. Amanda provided many updates through pics and video which made me feel close to my little one while I was gone. Bella had so much fun I was worried that she might not want to come home ;-)

Once again, Amanda and Sherine were wonderful hosts. They took such good care of our little Rocko. Loved all the pictures/videos. He was really pooped out when he came home. It took him a couple of days to regroup. We also want to thank you for being so accommodating to our schedule. Until next time. Thanks again.

Amanda, Sherine and their doxie Max, were ALL terrific! Pete took to them very easily and it was evident he was very comfortable and very happy staying with them. This was my first time using dogvacay and my first time with these guys. Although I didn't think I needed pics/videos, they sent them anyway, and I was so happy to see Pete looking cozy and comfortable while I sat in my hotel room on my business trip. They were so good with him! He was happy to see me when I got back but not frantic to leave like we had experience when we go to the kennel. Thanks again for being GREAT doggfie hostesses!!!!!! :)

Amanda and Max were great hosts to my little Bella. Amanda's pictures and videos showed me that Bella was having so much fun that she didn't seem to care that I was gone :-( :-)
Amanda did a great job watching our pup Pixel! She sent text updates for any and every activity multiple times a day. We loved it and would definitely let her watch Pixel again
Amanda was wonderful! This was our first experience with Dog Vacay and we are so happy it worked out so well. She was very easy going about things and would send us pictures and videos frequently, so we would know what Gizmo was up to. Usually, when we have had to board Gizmo in the past, we pick her up and she is SPRINTING out the door ready to go home (probably b/c she hated being boarded), but not this time. When we picked her up, she was calm and she seemed completely comfortable where she was. Of course she was happy to see us, but not in an anxious way like she has been in the past. That's such a relief to us b/c we want her to enjoy her time when we are away - and thanks to Amanda, she did!

One word - AMAZING. Amanda is wonderful, the best. She took such good care of our baby while we were away. She is a very kind and gentle soul. She also accommodated our crazy schedule. She kept us updated and informed the entire time. We could see Rocko was having the time of his life. He was so pooped out when he got home and I can tell he misses her and Max. We will definitely use Amanda again without hesitation. Thanks again Amanda.

Bowdy has stayed with Amanda and Max a bunch of other times and she's usually my "go to" dog sitter! He is so happy with her and Max and I feel so comfortable leaving him alone. She sends me tons of videos and pictures and assures me that my little buddy is being well taken care of. I have no anxiety about leaving Bowdy with Amanda and I know he's in good hands!

Henry had such a wonderful time with Sherine & Amanda! We had a meet and greet with their welcoming little guy, Max. They kept me updated with pictures & video of my Henry. I absolutely recommend them & will look to them again the next time I have to board Henry.
