All Creatures Pet Adventures was founded in 2014 by Amanda Glenn-Theriault and her trusty sidekick Felix. Felix and Amanda love exploring beaches and woods together, and after getting tired of leaving Felix behind to go to be a high school teacher every day, Amanda decided to start a business that would provide the services that she wished she could give her own dog.
After three years of hiking dogs on
public trails, Amanda and her husband
Andy purchased a home with 48 acres
of woods where dogs can run, play,
sniff, and wrestle in a private setting.
This home is also the base of all dog
sitting services. "Casa de Felix"
welcomes dog guests as part of an
extended family of furry couch
potatoes and backyard sunbathers,
often delivering breakfast in bed to our guests who like to sleep in.
Amanda and Andy also run a sanctuary for farmed animals on their property, and while sanctuary residents are fully separated from the dog "guest quarters," (our home), dog guests will be able to hear our rooster, see our horses, and get a whiff of our very clean rescue pigs.
“My dog has separation anxiety and it was important to find a caregiver who understands that condition and the human behaviors that help minimize it; Amanda had personal experience with this in her own dog and that gave me great peace of mind. Amanda is the first dog-sitter my dog has had who he didn’t know. She was gracious enough to travel to my home (on very short notice) two days before we needed her to sit with him, just so he could meet her in “ordinary” conditions. She obviously loves and cares about dogs. I have no hesitation in recommending her services. She was kind, accommodating and flexible to our timing, quick to respond to any communication, and very easy to work with. I will definitely hire her again.”–
