The Boss!


Amanda Sleigh

Amanda has had a passion for animals for as long as she can remember. After studying Animal Science at La Trobe University, she then went on to become a Veterinary Nurse and a qualified pet groomer, while also working at the Werribee Zoo. It was through this that she discovered that personalised pet care was her true passion. In 2011, she began to build a small pet care business that has continued to grow into the successful business it is today. From the beginnings in her parents backyard to Union Rd Moonee Ponds and now at Racecourse Rd Flemington, Amanda strives for nothing but the best and that each and every pet can feel safe, happy and most of all loved while they are away from their home. Amanda's fur child Willow the cavoodle is never too far from her side and is always happy to greet a new client. Amanda and her team at Pitter Patter Paws put pets first.

Doggy Day Carers


Esther Wong 

Esther is a Melbourne University student studying Animal Science and Management. She grew up with 3 German Shepherds and a Miniature Schnauzer and loves all animals from big to small. She enjoys spending time cuddling and playing with all the puppies here at doggy day care and hopes to continue her companion animal work into the future. Esther is mindful to all the pets that come through our doors making each one feel loved and special. 


Baiba Zukovska

Baiba is the definition of hard work! She puts the most amazing effort in everything that she does may it be cooking, cleaning, looking after all the doggies or being an awesome mum to her son. There is no task to small for her and she is always making everyone here laugh. The dogs jump higher the ever when she turns up to work. 


Alanah Baldacchino

Alanah is a quiet and gentle soul. If you fell that your dog has been all cuddled out after a day of doggy daycare its probably due to Alanah. Her sensitive nature is what the dogs pick up on and just love. No dog is left un cuddled on her shift. Although she may be quiet and calm she still knows how to command a room and have all the dogs following her and being on their best behaviours.
