About Amanda

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE YOUR DOG/DOGS TO HAVE A BARKING GOOD BREAK AT THE BEACH?

We are a family of 4 that love ALL animals but in particular dogs - all breeds - all sizes. 

We would love to show your fur baby what life at a beachside suburb is all about 😊 


A house back onto a park, which is easily access through double gates for some morning playing or just change of scenery.

Dogs have access to inside and outside 24/7

We are happy to continue crate training if that's what you like or generally dogs can sleep wherever they want usually on our bed or at the foot of our bed but that's okay 😁

PETS HAVE ACCESS TO ALL AREAS 24/7



 

About our family:

  • Amanda – (me 57)  
  • Matt – (Dad – 62) 
  • Kai (19) 
  • Brenda (Amanda’s Mum – 84 & active - home all day & a dog whisper)
  • Loki – 3 year old Kelpie, energetic & fun loves a good play with other dogs
  • Jam – Cat 9 – Loki’s obsession – these two love each other thought
  • Jimmy – cat 7 – little boss cat - Both independent inside out cats & can get along with dogs that haven't had a cat experience
  • Animals allowed to sleep anywhere, but happy to continue crate training if required.

     

    Mum lives in a granny flat downstairs and generally where the dogs like to hang out during the day with her.

    Mum’s pet Alice passed away this year and she misses her terribly and happy to have a pup sleep on her bed.   

     Our fur baby guests get treated to a morning routine of Smacko's where the are told to sit and take turns in getting bits of smacko's off Mum.

    Once she says Äll Gone!” they quickly learn snack time is over and they wander off to do whatever they want

     

    I work 15 minutes from home so popping home during the day to administer medication or just to check in will not be an issue.  

     

    We love all dogs, all sizes, and breeds and happy to take two at a time.

     

    Services offered:
     

    • ADMINISTER MEDICATION
    • DOG WASH /GROOMING
    • DEDICATED PLAY TIME
    • OBEDIENCE TRAINING
    • CRATE TRAINING

       
    • Morning routine for me is taking the dogs for a walk or for some fun in the park next door or even a walk to the beach to watch the sunrise

       

      Afternoon Routine: Off leash Dog Park at 5.30pm.  

       

      Weekends off-leash beach visit at Curl Curl or a 15-minute walk to take in the sea breeze at Dee Why Beach.  

       

      Sometimes on Sundays we like to take the dogs to a beachside café where they are catered for with water bowls under the tables and loads of new sights and smells to take in.  

       
      We love animals and would love to give you peace of mind that a fellow human will love your fur baby as their own so you can be completely relaxed on your holiday with daily photo updates at the adventures your dog is having.  

      We love the idea of being Pawshake parents knowing that your dog will get to sleep on a bed, the couch or wherever they want to instead of going to a boarding kennel.

      Amanda took great care of Nelson and her great communication meant we could relax and enjoy the holiday knowing Nelson was happy and safe

      Amanda took great care of our beagle, Scout for 3 weeks whilst we were overseas. We had loads of photos and updates for peace of mind. Scout fitted in really well with Loki their family dog. We will definitely be using Amanda again.

      I speak English
      +20 years of experience
      Familiar with dog training techniques
      I have a huge amount of love and patience for dogs and relish in training them and playing. Majik can sit, drop, be shot and play dead, she knows how to heal - I can move a step to the right and say closer and she will heal again. Both Loke and Maj can shake, drop and we can place treats on their paws tell them to leave it and they won't touch their treats until I say ok. I would love to be able to show you what your pet can learn if they don't have any commands.
