When Amanda arrived to walk our two dogs, one was missing. She let me know, then went out in the neighborhood looking for her, found her, walked her, and secured her back in our yard. I was pleased that she took the initiative to deal with an unexpected problem...and the dogs love her.
Amanda is a great dog sitter and looooves dogs! She watched over my crazy pup a few times during grad school and was super. She took Ellie on hikes and gave her lots of snuggles. I would highly recommend Amanda as a dog sitter. She is very responsive, responsible and does an incredible job taking care of the fur-babies.
Amanda is an extremely compassionate and responsible individual. I worked along side her in a marine mammal rescue center, where she was in charge of taking care of many sick and injured patients. I've also seen her love for her own furbabies. She'll treat your pets like her own.
Responsible dog loving grad student
I have been an animal lover my whole life. Growing up with all kinds of pets, from mice to birds, snakes, lizards, spiders and of course our family dog, there has rarely been a time in my life I haven't cared for some kind of animal. I'm currently in graduate school studying wildlife biology, more specifically behavioral ecology, and so have a lot of hands on experience with wild animals and animal behavior as well ...
What Amanda would like to know about your dog
Does your dog have any favorite activities? Or any special needs/behavioral issues? I love all dogs but have always owned large dogs myself (60-140lbs) and so have lots of big dog handling experience.
