Amanda has been with Atlantic Pet Sitting since the beginning. It all started with a camping trip and a dog. Amanda and Chris are avid campers and they were taking a weekend camping trip to McClellanville, SC.
While setting up the tent, Amanda and her friend saw a coonhound lurking in the woods. He was obviously starved and from the looks of it, he had been out there for a long time. Of course, Amanda started feeding the dog, and he stuck around the campsite all weekend.
At the end of the weekend, Amanda and Chris had already fallen in love with the poor coonhound and there was no way they were leaving him.
Upon returning back to Myrtle Beach, they took him to VCA where he was only given a small chance at survival based on his bloodwork. He was starved, had so many fleas he didn’t have any red blood cells and was extremely malnourished.
The good news was that Coleman made a full recovery, but there was one slight problem. Chris and Amanda had upcoming vacations planned and they weren’t sure what to do with Coleman. It was evident from the beginning they couldn’t take him to a boarding facility due to his severe anxiety.
This led them to go on the search for a reliable pet sitting company, but the search came up empty. They could find “hobby” pet sitters, but nobody who would commit to long duration trips.
For almost a year they sat on the idea of forming a pet sitting company like they would want to use until finally, they decided to go for it. This leads us to the creation of Atlantic Pet Sitting.
Amanda and Chris formed Atlantic Pet Sitting to be a reliable pet sitting company that capitalizes on all the modern features of a large company. As Amanda said, “We take the care of our clients’ pets very seriously because we know they’re family”.
Over 4 years into Atlantic Pet Sitting, Amanda still loves going out and doing pet visits. She also works with Chris in making sure they hire the best pet sitters around! Most of the time you can find her emailing and calling clients about upcoming reservations. She is instrumental in making sure Atlantic Pet Sitting runs smooth and each client receives the personalized care they’ve come to expect.
