Pet Sitting, Dog Walking & Ranch Care

Serving El Dorado County

About Us

The Country Sitter was established to provide sitter services to the local community in the cities of El Dorado County, CA. The Country Sitter is owned and operated by Ms. Amanda Todd and provides excellent service and a bubbly personality to all owners! After helping out family and friends by taking care of their pets over the past five years, Amanda kept finding herself being pulled towards caring for animals. While working alongside another sitter, Amanda decided to embrace this common denominator in her life and start a pet sitting service!

Leaving your pets with a stranger can be daunting and we do everything we can to make sure you and your pets are beyond happy with our care.

Our Services

Dog Walking

*Currently Not Available

The Country Sitter is here to wrangle and walk your dogs/cats out for a 30 minute walk! We will come to your home or work, and take your pets for a brisk walk. Walkers are fully equipped with poop bags and a water bowl.

Pet Visits

Pet Visits are a great way to know what your pets are up to while you’re on vacation or at work. We can check on your pets up to 3 times in one day! Each Pet Visit is up to 30 minutes and we feed, clean, and play with your pets. If we have extra time, we do dishes and water plants too! It’s your time and we are happy to accommodate special requests.

In-Home Sitting

Overnight sitting is ideal for pets who are more comfortable staying in their own home, or may not like to be around other pets. This service includes nightly stays to care for your pets, watering plants, checking mail and anything else you may need to be done while on vacation.

Ranch Care

Are you heading out of town or just need some support around the farm? The Country Sitter offers hourly, daily or weekly services to care for your animals and property, including feeding, medications, gardening, watering, and management. Contact us to discuss your needs!

Our Mission

Certified Professional Pet Sitter & Covid-19 Certification

Certification for Professional Pet Sitters

The industry’s only knowledge-assessed certification exam for professional pet sitters

Since 1994, Pet Sitters International has been the leading educational association for professional pet sitters, with the mission of “pet-sitting excellence through education.” Now, more than ever before, we believe the pet-owning public needs an easily identifiable way to determine the most qualified, knowledgeable professional pet-sitting options—and professional pet sitters need a way to demonstrate their qualifications so they can stand out in the sea of qualified and unqualified options in the ever-growing pet-care services industry.

I recently completed a COVID-19 Certification Course to educate myself on how to be safe, sanitary, and conscious of COVID-19 safety protocols at all times. This includes but is not limited to bringing my own leash and supplies, wearing booties and gloves when entering your home, and sanitizing all surfaces upon leaving your home. The health and safety of you, your family, and your pets is our primary concern.

Client Testimonials

“Looking for an amazing pet sitter?? Amanda is the perfect person for that job! Amanda has been watching my pups for the last two years and I couldn’t be happier. My pups always get excited when I say, “Auntie Amanda is coming over!” Amanda is caring, compassionate, responsible and her attention to detail makes her shine above all the rest!”

Christy Aaron

Owner of CJ’s Pet Staycation

“Amanda is amazing with my three dogs. She seems to know exactly what they need whenever she takes care of them. She is always early and very compassionate. I trust her completely with my fur kids and am confident they are in great hands when I am out of town. I couldn’t have asked for a better dog sitter!!!!”

It’s such a relief knowing my loved ones are in such good hands when I must be away. I can’t say enough good things about Amanda. Love her!”

to the Country Sitter!

I’m Amanda, and I offer country hospitality combined with expert loving care for your treasured pets. After helping out family & friends taking care of their pets the past five years, I decided to increase my reach to my local community. I provide excellent service and a bubbly personality to all pet owners!

I have been around animals my entire life—from riding horses, working with dog and horse trainers, to owning my own pets for 20+ years. I was exposed early on to a diversity of animals, breeds and temperaments and am fully prepared to take on any pet challenge that comes my way!
