Recycled Paper

Hi! I'm Amanda Richardson, owner of Nibbles & Yips, LLC.

I’ve lived my whole life in the company of animals. From caring for horses and barrel racing at age 7 to training my first pup at age 9 - a pocket Pomeranian named DG - I can map most of my life through my relationship with animals.

In fact, my first instinct after being discharged from the U.S. Army was to purchase a Siberian Husky. It’s a challenging breed, and I learned so much. Since then I’ve made it my mission to rescue these misunderstood animals - who are often lost or surrendered - and try to educate other dog owners on how to train and rehabilitate their own rescued dogs.

Along this journey of educating dog owners, I've met numerous families that had trouble finding care for their pets. I heard one heart breaking story after another about how their pets "failed" the intake meeting at local boarding facilities or that when the owners left the dog just sat in the corner of their pen the entire stay. I knew there had to be a better way; and I've turned that intuition into Nibbles & Yips, LLC. 

"Rescued" is my favorite breed and it is for them and pets like them that I created Nibbles and Yips. When your pets are in our care, it's not just a job, we're family. That's the way I want this business to be!
