About Amanda

I lost my dog of 14 years last March. Whilst I am not ready to replace her, I am missing the need to be around pets, as I have been around them all my life, and find myself asking for a fuss if an owner says it is okay to approach their dog in the street. I am missing my regular daily walks/exercise and generally being around pets.

This leads me to looking at dog walking/sitting and cat feeding/sitting to fill a personal need but also to have a good munch of other's pets and look at different breeds and natures until I am ready to have another pet of my own.

I looked after 2 cats in my home recently for 6 months.

Having been around pets since an early age I find it easy to recognise their behaviour and needs, such as when they want to go out, need some fuss or just want to rest. I am comfortable around giving medication if needed and would be more than happy to provide updated photo's of your happy pet if required.

A little about me - I have worked for the NHS for the last 10 years and also have a voluntary job doing youth work once a week.

I live in a ground floor flat (converted house with just an upstairs and downstairs flat) with a large secluded garden close to a park (with a duck pond, which my dog used to swim in during the summer months). I live alone and would be happy to have a dog or cat in my home and would be happy to sit in the animals home but I do work Monday to Friday 9 - 5. I work 5 minutes walk from home so am able to pop home lunch time to check on a dog and let them out in the garden. I am comfortable around more than 1 dog but I do not think it would be suitable to have more than 1 in my home unless they were small.

If you would like any more information please feel free to ask...

    Amanda is ACE! She looked after my dog really well. He loved his time there. She was very kind and sent me regular updates. I would highly recommend her.

    Amanda took an excellent care of my Dingo. Dog came back happy, healthy and I think she secretly misses Amanda :)

    Byron seemed to love his time with Amanda. I got photo updates each evening to show how he was doing, and he was very well taken care of. Will definitely use Amanda again when needed and would recommend her to anyone looking for a dogsitter.
