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 had my whippet, Percy, for a weekend. She was brilliant with him and great and keeping me updated with photos and videos. He had a great time and enjoyed all the cuddles and kisses she gave him. It is great to have found someone I can trust with my ‘baby’ and will definitely use Amanda again.

    Amanda looked after Raggie, my dog, and Drogon, my cat, for 4 days while I went away to Greece. She was absolutely wonderful with my babies, kept me updated with videos and photos and helped put my mind at ease. The animals loved her. I found them happy and well taken care of when I returned. I will definitely leave them with her again when I need to travel. Thank you Amanda!

    Amanda has just looked after my westie Baxter for 2 weeks. I have never left him with anyone before so was really apprehensive but she was totally amazing. He was so Happy there and I was updated regularly with photos and videos which really put me at ease. Baxter got loads of love, fuss and walks galore - I know he will miss Amanda. I wouldn't think twice now about leaving Baxter with her again and would recommend her to anyone without fail. Thank you Amanda and we will see you soon :)
