Meet Amanda O’Neil

Kennel Technician

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.”
