Hello! It’s nice to “meet” you!
My name is Amanda, a trustworthy, energetic and committed 30 year old woman who would love to take care of your furry loved ones :)
I am a lovers of both cats and dogs (+ all furry friends for that matter!). I grew up with dogs from a very young age have had 10 cats in my lifetime! In fact, I was born into a house with 5 cats, and my first word was ... you guessed it - “CAT!”. Overall, I have a lifetime of experience with animals.
Unfortunately due to my restrictive condo rules, I do not have my own dog at the moment. That’s why I decided to join Pawshake - to have some fun and enjoy quality time pampering your pet!
Regardless of the service I offer, a core strength of mine is providing detailed pictures, videos and text updates of your fur baby. I am a bit of a photo enthusiast so expect at least 5-7 pictures during each visit. Of course, if you want pictures of videos of something specific that can always be accommodated!
Since I work as a freelancer, I have tons of flexibility for dog walks, visiting/feeding cats or dogs at your home, or cat/dog sitting in your home. I am able to do visits during the day times most days, all evenings after 6pm and the majority of weekends (including Friday and Saturday nights). I am an early bird so don’t hesitate if your pet needs a visit in the early hours of the morning!
I have a car and also live right beside high park subway station so transportation to meet you and your pet is not an issue. On evenings/weekends I will typically service a wider radius of clients so feel free to reach out even if you are a bit far away.
Visits to your home are guaranteed to be at least a 30 minutes in length and I am flexible to stay longer if required. All visits include litter box scooping, food/water, medications, and tons of playtime/snuggles/quiet companionship depending on your cat's temperament. I am very comfortable doing brushing for cats as needed.
In terms of walks, we can discuss what is best for your pets needs based on their age/health/size. My walks range from quick 20 minutes jonts for smaller dogs to running around for 45 minutes at high park for bigger dogs! I will never take your dog to an off leash area unless it is requested.
Overnight at your home:
For overnight visits I will of course be with your pet at all times as we discuss. I am able to take pets out for bathroom breaks at regular intervals as often as every 2 hours if needed for small puppies in training.*
My base rate of $60/night covers 100% of all care requirements between the hours of 7:30pm-7:30am. Of course, I am flexible to arrive earlier or stay later depending on your pet’s needs. I also will sometimes be able to add a free check in throughout the day if you are in a close proximity to my home. Of course, walks, home visits and other services can also be booked on top of my overnight home stays or I can extend my hours for a small fee.
*Puppies under the age of 6 months and any dogs who require several overnight bathroom breaks may incur extra charges as we discuss when booking.
*Home visits for more than 1 pet will incur an additional charge of $2 per additional cat and $4 per additional dog.
All fees and expectations will be outlined clearly before booking requests are made/accepted.
I will always provide text message and photo updates when completing visits/stays so you can feel completely at ease with your loved one being in my care.
Meet & Greets:
I know from experience that you consider your pet as family so I assure you they will be in the very best of care! In order to ensure everyone feels happy and comfortable I typically like to schedule meet and greets to discuss how we can meet all of you and your pet’s needs. If we cant meet in person a phone call would be a great back up option.
Feel free to reach out if you have any questions. I look forward to chatting about how I can care for your pet!
She’s a natural.
Amanda was amazing with our cat and took great care of her during our vacation. She was very professional and regular with her updates and photos of her visits. Our cat, who is usually shy, bonded greatly with Amanda from the first day. Knowing she was in good hands, we could enjoy our vacation at peace. I recommend her highly!
