Meet Amanda O’Neil
How long have you been working with animals?
I’ve been working with animals for three years but an animal lover my whole life. I also have three dogs of my own.
When I was a kid I would go to my Grandma’s farm and play with all the animals. The goats were my favorite. I have always loved animals.
What brought you to Kraftwerk K9?
My love of dogs and wanting to learn more about breeding and training are a couple of reason. All of my friends and family are so jealous that I get to be with dogs all day long.
What’s your favorite part of the job?
I love the bond that I have with all of the dogs. It is so special to me… Oh and PUPPIES!!
What are you happiest doing when you’re not at work?
I love to spend time exploring the Pacific Northwest with my three dogs.
What hobbies are you most passionate about?
I love photography, hiking and reading poetry. Oh and managing my dogs Instagram.
Tell is something we don’t know about you.
I am related to Milton Hershey and I have an Edgar Allan Poe Collection.
What is your personal motto?
I have a couple “Dog hair don’t care.” And another one is “Wanting to be someone you’re not is a waste of the person that you are.”
