About Amanda

Hi my name is Amanda and I have always had a passion, love and caring for animals and their welfare

I am committed and motivated to make a career of being a professional pet sitter, dog walker and pet visitor.

I take pet minding really seriously –expect me to take care of your pet to the highest standard. I will provide you with a worry free, reliable and affordable service and will go the extra mile

In my home there is mum and myself and our cat Millie, Our nearly 16 year old Collie dog,

passed away 1/1/2019. We have a spacious, secure fully fenced, with concrete and grass property, where your dog will be cared both inside and outside the house. There is always supply of fresh drinking water, inside and outside.

I have always enjoyed being around animals.

I believe spending time with them and giving them attention makes both our lives and their lives better.

At present, I am not currently working outside of my home, so I am available

all day for pet minding and walking Monday to Friday also in the weekends on request.

I have always been a genuine pet owner/lover and have had several dogs, cats, and a budgie over many years. I have experience looking after puppy to elderly dogs and cats, with arrange of health issues. They have all had different temperaments and some of my pets have been rescued or adopted.

I absolutely adore my pets and give them lots of attention, exercise, fun-activities and company.

I will also do the same with your special pets.

I always love and enjoy looking after my family, friends and neighbour’s pets when they are away or when they are too busy to take their pets for a walk.

I am reliable, energetic and honest.

I am responsible, have a high level of integrity and very personable.

I am easy going, compassionate and have an empathetic nature toward animals.

I have completed Animal Care, Companion Level 3 at Southern Institute of technology, with all papers A+ s.

I am licensed as a Pet First Aid – Canine CPR.

Also 30 + years of experience being with dogs and cats. Includes dog behaviour and dog training techniques.

I am not a professional groomer, but have experience in grooming my own, friends and family pets and can give your pets a good brush, groom, flea medication, bath, worm tablets and clean their teeth.

The most important things for me are being reliable and putting your animals first.

I would make them feel loved and cared for in the comfort of their own home and environment, where they feel safe and secure with someone they can trust.

I would love to help look after your much loved pet. I will give your pet my undivided attention, cuddles, playtime and walks to make sure they have an awesome time.

Police check and excellent references are available on request.

“Over the last 2 years we have been doing more traveling, and have chosen to board our precious Schnauzer, Louie, with Amanda. Louie is always excited to be left with her, and we have been able to go away confident that he is very well cared for.

We admire her knowledge of animals and their care, and Louie’s behaviour when he’s with her proves to us that he has a very strong bond with her. We have also appreciated the regular updates she gives that prove to us that Louie is stimulated, entertained and happy”.

Wendy and Keith Walker. 9/11/2020. Redwood Resident.

I would like to meet you and your pet, so we all have a chance to get to know each other and make sure we are a good match.

Thanks for reading my profile.

Kind regards

Amanda

Amanda is a great pet sitter. She is attentive to my 6-month old Bichon frise's needs. My puppy enjoyed his 3 nights stay. He had a great time playing with another puppy at Amanda's place. Will consider Amanda when i need a sitter.

House Sitting

Amanda is an incredible person who genuinely and kindly cared for our 12 year old Samoyed dogs and kept our home clean and tidy. Amanda communicates extremely well and kept us up to date with photos of our dogs each day which was so lovely. We can highly recommend Amanda for any pet or house sitting requirements.

30 + years of experience being with dogs and cats. Includes dog behaviour and dog training techniques.

Dog Walking: I know walking is the highlight of your dog’s day and that the walk is for them and not for me, I also take dogs at their own pace and I understand the importance of keeping your dog safe.

Home Visits: Are generally up to 1 hour per visit and can be up to twice a day. I can come and check on your animals at your home during the day. I would clean and refill their water bowl and refill their food bowl. And have a play before leaving your pets happy relaxed when you come home.

House Sitting: I am clean and tidy. I will look after your home respectfully, with honesty and treat your home like it’s my own property. Take you dog for a walk, play and lots of cuddles.

If there is any undertake household chores, while I am house sitting. Such as collecting mail, watering plants and rubbish collection, keeping watch over your home, cleaning and if needed empty and cleaning litter boxes and cleaning crate.

Doggy Day Care: I have a fully fenced and safe yard. I can look after your dogs either at your house or my house. Your pets will get a walk, play and cuddles.

However, I do ask that your pets are fully vaccinated and update with worming, fleas and is neutered.

I will not accept adult dogs that are not toilet trained and not house trained.

Home Boarding: when your dog is in my care, there will be a walk, play and cuddles while your pets are staying at my house and I have a fully fenced and safe yard for them to run around.

However, I do ask that your pets are fully vaccinated and update with worming, fleas and is neutered.

I will not accept adult dogs that are not toilet trained and not house trained.

I am not a professional groomer, but have experience in grooming my own, friends and family pets and can give your pets a good brush, groom, flea medication, bath, worm tablets and clean their teeth.
