My name is Amie and I have grown up with dogs my entire life. Since birth there has never been a time where I haven't shared every important moment with a dog.
When I reached my thirties, I realised that dogs were a constant passion for me, and after suffering through the devastating loss of Oscar, my best friend, I decided to give up my regular job to pursue that passion.
I can promise you that I will treat every dog that I have the honour of walking as if they were my own. I will make sure all the time they spend with me is full of play, and love, and that they are returned to you happy and healthy.
I am extremely trustworthy and reliable, and am willing to meet you beforehand to guarantee that I am the right fit for you and your companion. Lito's Banditos is run by myself (and my minpin but she doesn't have thumbs) so what you see is what you get. It will only ever be me walking your dogs and I will be completely transparent with you whatever we're doing together with photo updates and messages.
Please reach out and arrange a meet & greet, completely free of charge, if you'd like to know more about me. I can't wait to meet you and your dog!
Theodore is my Miniature Pinscher and inspiration for starting a dog walking business. I grew up with my grandma's Doberman Pinscher, and she was my childhood best friend beginning from the day I was born, right up until I was 16 years old. I always wanted a Doberman of my own, but would never have been able to devote the time needed to exercise him or her. During one of my many bemoaning moments, somebody uttered some fateful words to me; "why don't you think about getting a minpin?"
At the time, I had no idea what a minpin was. I googled the breed and instantly fell in love. I dreamt of one day finding the perfect Miniature Pinscher, and then finally, many years later, Theodore came into my life.
Theo means the world to me, and after we lost my Dachshund Oscar, I vowed that I would do anything I could to devote my life to making sure that Theo lived as happy a life as possible.
She is very socialable and loves being around other dogs as well as humans. She will be as much a part of the dog walking team as I will be - she will join us on pack walks, pet sitting sessions, and help new puppies learn to socialise in larger groups. Of course, if Theo can't come along on a session, she will understand and will sometimes be too busy. She's working on becoming an internet sensation herself, after all!
You can learn more about Theodore and follow her adventures on her quest for stardom on her instagram which is @litogodfather
She hopes to walk with your dog soon!
