Part-Time/Occasional Dog Services Looking For Job
My name is Amanda, I am 19 years old and grew up with a variety of pets. My very first memories were with my first dog, Kaley. I have always had fish of all kind - I am currently interested in saltwater fish, so that has been a hobby of mine. Additionally, I've had a few hamsters, one of which ended up being pregnant so we had hamster pups to care for as well! After losing Kaley, we adopted our golden retriever, Amy, who is now 12 years old! I have also grown up with birds, specifically cockatrices and parakeets.
Other than my pets, I have taken care of neighbor's dogs, cats, fish and birds. I've watched a dog and piglet for a family a year ago which was very exciting!
I have always had great love for animals, and looking out for their well being. My dog is my best friend she always knows when something is wrong- I've learned to create intense connections with animals over time. I love taking my dog on walks and playing fetch- just the sight of her leash makes her crazy with excitement! I have never personally owned a cat, however I have taken the responsibility to feed stray cats and find them homes.
I have researched and watched documentaries on animal behaviors and personalities. I am experienced in training, bathing, feeding, and playing of course. I feel confident and comfortable in terms of taking care of pets of all kinds.
