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.

    First time leaving our 18mo schnauzer Fritz with someone he didn't know and we needn't have worried. Amanda is a lovely genuine person who clearly loves dogs and treated our boy as if he were her own, and she also pictures to ease our pining while we were away We will definitely be booking again (if she'll have him) soon. Thanks Amanda! X

    Thanks for your lovely words Simon. I'd love to have Fritz stay with me again. I'm not sure who entertained who the most! Fritz is such a beautiful boy 😍

    I am always worried about leaving my pug with people as I know he can be constantly on the go. However, Hamish settled straight away with Amanda and I was kept up to date with pictures and texts which put my mind at ease. I can highly recommend Amanda to take care of your pet knowing that they are in safe and experienced hands. Will definitely book again when I need someone to look after my dog :) thanks for looking after Hamish
