Amanda, dog sitter in Birmingham
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 absolutely amazing and wonderful person and also a real dog lover! If I had a baby I would like her to be the baby's godmother, so she could be close to us. My doggie had more fun with Amanda then with us.

    Amanda was absolutely amazing with our two dogs Bison and Beauty. So much so that they sulked the whole day after we collected them. She treated them like her own and exactly the same way we do - lots of cuddles, kisses and affection. They looked in great condition after their two week stay and we will definitely be using Amanda again in the future. Thank you so much Amanda and Dog Buddy for providing our two babies with a wonderful temporary home. 5 stars!!!

    Ah, that's lovely Kerry. Thank you so much. Bison and Beaut are beautiful dogs and so well behaved, which is all credit to you. They were an absolute delight to have in my home and I miss playing with them. X x x
