About Brenda

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**Please read to the bottom of my profile for boarding request guidelines.**CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY- 3 night minimum and I will not be taking any drop offs or pick ups on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Thank you!
I provide dog boarding in a non smoking, loving home setting. Experienced with senior animals, post surgery, and I can administer medication. I absolutely ADORE senior dogs! *MUST have a complete profile for me to view when you contact me. I do not reply to blank profiles* You can see me and my home so I want to see you and your lovely dogs!
Discounts for multiple pets or for single dog stays of more than a week. I carefully book the dogs for stays in groups according to their needs. Example: If I have reservations for senior dogs who don't care for a lot of activity I will not accept young, energetic dogs during their stay. Because of this you may see me as available on my calendar but I might not be available for your dog. Thank you for understanding the comfort and safety of my doggie guests is my #1 priority.
My background is a degree in Behavioral Psychology, working for Veterinarians and upscale boarding facilities. I provide the care I always craved for my pets and could never find. I have been a full time pet care professional for 15 years.
I am centrally located 15 min from the airport and close to freeways. 5 min from the Strip and Downtown.
Your dogs have the run of the house as they would at yours. There are crates onsite for dogs that are accustomed to being crated. I have two large fully secured yards, one with dog door access. I have a garden area for little dogs and a huge walled in yard for larger dogs.
I have indoor play space in case of harsh weather and in Vegas that is common!
Drop off and pick up is by appointment only. You must schedule a specific appointment time to drop off or pick up your dog 24 hours before drop off or pick up. Generally no pick up or drop off before 8 am or after 7 pm. I will do my best to accommodate early or late pickups with at least 24 hour notice.

Out of town visitors are exempt from meet and greet but your dog(s) must meet all boarding guidelines. Dogs must be friendly to people and other dogs, well socialized and non aggressive. I offer boarding, not training, grooming or behavior therapy. I expect your dog to know how to behave in a home with other dogs. I cannot accept dog(s) that cannot be left alone for a short amount of time without becoming destructive,nuisance barking/howling or obsessive scratching at doors.
Please be aware there will be other dogs besides yours during your booking.
I care for up to 8 dogs at a time, including my 2. Sometimes there is an overlap between drop offs and pick up and an extra dog or two may be on site. You are welcome to look around my home and see exactly where your dog will be. I am home almost all day and overnight every single night you dog stays with me but I do go to movies, grocery shop and eat meals with friends like anyone else.
Meet and Greets are for people who need care for specific dates only.
Proof of vaccination is required! Photo of vaccination record is fine. Dogs must be spayed or neutered and potty trained. Exceptions made on a case by case basis for puppies.
Dogs must be housetrained to go outside. Pee Pad is not housetrained!

What I expect from owners: I arrange my schedule around yours whenever possible. I am here for you when I say I will be and I expect the same from you. Be on time. I expect you to be able to use the website and recommend downloading the app. That's where pictures will be posted, payment is handled how messages go through. Text through the app is the preferred method of contact. You booked me through here after all. I want to spend my time caring for and playing with your amazing dogs, Let's have fun!
If your dog requires constant exercise I cannot accommodate that level of energy.

I hope this makes it easier for us to be the perfect match for your pet care needs. Thank you!

Brenda was wonderful and is very dog friendly and accommodating. We arrived early and she was able to accept our dog earlier than our agreed upon stop off time. She also took very good care of Odie and gave her a lot of attention.
We appreciated all the care and attention Brenda gave our Belle. From the pictures and videos Brenda sent us you could what a great time Belle was having.
Zoe had a blast staying at Brenda's and playing with her dogs. She sent several pictures and videos to give updates on Zoe.
Was hesitant to place my dogs with someone I did not know. Concerns were addressed when I met Brenda. She welcomed me and the dogs as if she had known us forever. Dogs were at ease when they went in the house. They were allowed to roam and get familiar while I was there with them. Brenda and I communicated easily while they were there and when I picked them up they were not at all stressed and seemed very happy and comfortable. I would definitely leave them with Brenda again!

She is very nice, responsive and reliable. She sent pictures and responds to questions right away.
Excellent experience as usual.
Brenda is truly a dog whisperer! Her compassion, knowledge and love for dogs is a gift. She understands dogs and all the joys, safety, comfortability and happiness that accompanies them. We are so grateful to have her care for our dog Juno while on our family trip visiting Las Vegas. We highly recommend Brenda and is definitely on our family "Vegas Top 3 Must Visit List"

This was my first time using Dog Vacay. Brenda was awesome. It is obvious she really loves dogs and here house is nicely set up to accommodate my dog's needs. I received daily updates and my dog seemed to be really happy with her. I will definitely be using Dog Vacay again and will be requesting Brenda again.

Nice lady. Will use her services again.
Very nice....very caring .
So kind and sweet to my pup. Responded quickly to the request as well as all communication. Set lots of pictures of my pup. Was super flexible about pick up/drop off times. Will definitely use her again!
Great experience.. Left our girl with Brenda while went on a Disney 5K. Sent us pictures throughout will use again....
Brenda was AWESOME! Loved the picture and video updates. My boys had a lot of fun and were very tired when they got home. She really loves dogs and understands them and very professional.
Brenda is so friendly and warm! You can tell that she really loves what she does. She sent us daily updates with the cutest pictures of our Jackson.
Brenda did a great job. I was very impressed with how her home is setup for dog sitting. I received regular photos concerning my dog and was very happy with the care that she received. If I ever visit Vegas again, I will definitely look into using Brenda again.

We have never left our giant breed babies with anyone but Brenda has such good reviews so we gave it a shot and couldn't be happier with how she cared for our babies! She is awesome and we will definitely use her again in the future!
This is not the first time and won't be the last that I use this. My experience with easy reservations and flexible Hosts cannot be matched. Brenda C is the best one out there. I wouldn't use any other company/host. Luv it
Brenda C is the best Host ever. She is flexible and fun and knows my dog after several Vacays. I would not go anywhere else :)
First time use. It was amazing. very easy and convient. Good steps all the way.
We are extremely lucky and grateful that we found Brenda.. My boy stayed with Brenda for a week, he's SO mature and well behave now after a week!! You can just tell she is a very caring loving awesome person when you walk into her place..
Thank you so much Brenda, would like to just visit her and her dogs sometimes

Great as always
This was Luci's first stay and Brenda was kind and patient while she adjusted to her new surroundings. The place is very dog friendly, too! Plus, the fun updates made my time away from her easier!
Thanks again and hope to come back over in September!
The best all around situation for dog boarding you will find.
We hit the jackpot finding Brenda in Vegas. Thanks!
As usual Alvin bolts for Brenda's door and takes forever to want to leave.
Alvin doesn't want to go anywhere else when I'm out working. Thanks!
I couldn't have found a better place for Alvin to be while I'm out of town.
We visited all the way from Texas and found Ms. Brenda and we were so pleased with having our Lab stay with her a few days! Very loving and professional. Look forward to our next visit. Thanks again!
Brenda is AMAZING! I've never left my pups with anyone other than family and she made me feel extremely comfortable. She reassured me, sent photos updates and most importantly loved and catered to my two CRAZY dogs!
Brenda is great with Miguel and he always comes home happy and healthy! She sends photo updates every day and she's extremely accommodating and flexible with pick up/ drop off times! She responds quickly to all messages and I wouldn't trust Miguel with anyone else!

Brenda was very accommodating when we arrived later than expected and gave short notice on the pickup time. She seemed prepared to handle several dogs at once with two yards spaces, but gave extra attention to our little dog. She is super close to the downtown hotels if you are visiting from out of town.

Brenda was amazing! From the moment we met her, we knew our precious dogs were in excellent hands. We highly recommend Brenda! When we visit Las Vegas again, Aunt Brenda is where they will go!
Brenda is the best! Jackson loved the stay. We will be back!
Brenda is an absolute gem. She was so accommodating and clearly a dog lover. My pups loved her and I will be using her again next time I'm in Vegas without hesitation.
Longest I've ever been away from my pups and Brenda made me feel super comfortable. Her updates were great! She took great care of my two insane dogs and I will definitely be using her whenever I travel in the future :)
Brenda was a wonderful and attentive pet sitter for my dog, Rudy. Actually, he received the "royal" treatment -- i.e., allowed to sit on top of the couch and slept in a very nice, warm bed. Brenda kept me posted and sent pics of Rudy. He'll be spending his next Dog-Vacay with Brenda! -- Cindy

Brenda is wonderful! She was extremely welcoming, and made Luc (and us) feel right at home. It's obvious that she truly loves dogs, and treats each one as her own. She sent pictures to us to reassure us that Luc was well cared for. Even though he was happy to be picked up by his family, he seemed to have a great time with Brenda and her other charges. We would not hesitate a moment to use her again. Thank you again, Brenda.

Brenda was Awesome! Would use her anytime!
My experience with Brenda and her care of my dog Bella was great. She was very responsive to all my text during her care. The picture updates of my Dogs stay brought comfort to know she was doing well many thanks !! Brenda. I definitely will be using her services again on my trips to Vegas

Brenda was great, she loves the dogs. So nice not to worry about the dogs. She sent us photos every day and was very easy to get a hold of, either with email or phone. She has a fenced yard for the dogs and she is at home all day with them. The dogs have the run of the house and have easy access to outside areas.

Brenda was super easygoing with our three high energy dog pack. They had a great time in her backyard. They played till they dropped literally. Our one year old fell asleep half on half off the couch. She let them sleep on her bed like they do at home. We will be using Brenda again nrxt time we are in town for sure.

Brenda was awesome! She provides a safe and loving environment and we felt completely comfortable leaving our puppy with her. We used to take him to the kennel when we went away, but he always came out of there stressed and filled with anxiety. When we picked him up from Brenda he was happy and playful and didn't want to leave. We highly recommend Brenda and will use her service anytime we go away.

My dogs loved it there and were well cared for! Very nice person and very caring. Thanks Brenda, we'll see you again soon! Tell Max the girls said hi! :)
Best and easiest way to have your pet cared for. I have been traveling more lately and have no one to car for my dog. Brenda C is flexible and great at what she does :)
Brenda did great as far as I'm concerned. She was very polite and friendly. She responded to my texts and online messages while I was away. She sent me pics of my dogs chilling on her couch when I contacted her to check on them.

I got my dogs back in the same healthy condition that I dropped them off in. It was my first experience with leaving my dogs somewhere since

I adopted them 6 years ago. So I was really nervous and worried about my dogs, especially since one of them is very skittish around others he doesn't know. They didn't act traumatized or weird in any way when I picked them up. Thanks Brenda!

Our dog Sammy had so much fun! We loved the pictures and updates. Thanks Brenda!
Brenda was a great help when we had to travel to Vegas for CES. It was our first time leaving Bacon with someone that we didn't know hence we were extremely nervous about doing so. However, our worries went away upon chatting with Brenda to get a feel of how she treats her guests. I would recommend you to use Brenda to take care of your love ones should you need to find someone in Vegas.
Read More...
Brenda was great. Kept us informed and our girls seemed less stressed than other places they have stayed. We definitely we use her again!
The keyword with Brenda is "assurance."

From the beginning she assures you that your dog will be well taken care of. During the stay, she reassures you that everything is OK using updates, photos, and notes texted and emailed. And, at pickup, she again assures you that everything went well. You feel comforted when your pet stays with Brenda.

Brenda is the absolute best! I couldn't have asked for a more pleasent experience :) We were gone for almost a week and Brenda sent us multiple photos and videos updating me on my fur baby. We love knowing that our dog was well taken care of in a loving environment. Any out of town trips we have, we will definitely go back to Brenda! Thanks for everything! :D
Read More...
Brenda made this such an easy experience. When I dropped of my dog, she took the time to ask questions, and started to introduce him to the other dogs. She sent videos and pictures that helped make my vacation easier because I knew he was being taken care of.

Brenda is great and Meek throughly enjoyed his dog vacay! I will definitely use her again!
Ayon stayed with Brenda again and loved it. She will be my go to place when i'm in Vegas.
Brenda is awesome and provides an excellent service hosting my dog when I'm in the area. I've used her a few times snd she's always very flexible with pick and drop odd times and the pictures she sends keeps me from worrying about him. I recommend her to everyone who is looking for a true animal lover to care for their dog!

Brenda helped me look after my English bulldog in a super short notice (3hours). Sshe replied in second and was extremely friendly. I can tell she really loves dogs and my bulldog didn't want to leave her house. I will strongly recommend her and will def use her next time. s

Brenda was very friendly and a total dog lover.. I would definitely use her again.. Thanks Brenda !
Brenda was so great to our little Zoe. You can tell she is truly a dog lover and she sent us multiple pictures and kept in good communication with us during our vacation. We felt totally at ease leaving Zoe with her.
Brenda was an ideal host!! She has a perfect dog house - big yard, dog-friendly furniture, doggy-door, etc. She was sweet and responsive, and kept me updated throughout my dog's stay with her. When I came to pick up my pup, I could tell she was madly in love with Brenda. I know she was treated like a princess throughout her stay, and I am so grateful Brenda was able to take her for the weekend!

This was the first time I boarded my dog, and I was concerned about how he would do. Brenda was terrific from the first meet-and-greet to allaying my concerns to the wonderful pictures she shared with me while we were gone. Not only were we on vacation, it made me feel as if my dog was on vacation, too! And he had a great time. I highly recommend Brenda. She is extremely loving with her charges, yet she is able to keep them under control. She is the alpha!

Outstanding and caring.
I left my great dane Rex with Brenda for four days. Hhe was excited when I picked him up but not stresed. The in home enviroment was perfect for him. I will usr har again and recomend her highly. Scott R
Excellent as usual. Definately gives you peace of mind that your pup is in good hands. :-)
Brenda C. is a great sitter. She allowed us to reschedule the times that we needed a sitter. She also sent pictures so we could be assured Cash was doing good. Next time in Las Vegas we will use her.
Brenda was great. Her place is definitely dog-friendly and she tool good care of our older dog while we had fun in Vegas. She is close to the Strip. She is a clear and competent communicator - friendly and sweet! I will certainly use her again.
Brenda was fantastic from start to finish! This was our first time going away without our dog but Brenda put our minds at ease and we knew we were leaving him in great hands! We took our dog over to meet her a week before he was due to stay. She was really flexible, friendly and loves dogs! Once we dropped our dog off for his week stay, Brenda sent us regular updates and photos. She was really helpful and always replied to texts/emails quickly. She has lots of space in her house and a great big garden that our dog loved to run around in with the other dogs that were staying. She is a great dog sitter and we are so happy to have found her. I would highly recommend her and will definitely be using her again for future dog sitting! Thanks Brenda!

It was a wonderful experience! Brenda is very caring, knowledgable and experienced host, great set up for doggies to spend awesome time in and outdoors . She follows up with pictures and you know that your doggies are safe and loved and well taking care of. My pups were really happy and we are definitely coming back .
Read More...
Brenda was great. I felt my babies were in capable hands. Brenda is very attentive and caring! I will ask her to host again in a heartbeat!
Brenda is a great 'mom' for my dog. I would never use anyone else.
Sam feels comfortable with Brenda and that makes me happy!
We had a last minute work trip / mini vacation that wouldn't allow our dogs to come along after reading several profiles we were happy to find Brenda. Several updates and pictures and everything went smooth! Will deff. use Brenda again the next time that were in Las Vegas.
Read More...
Brenda was great! She was very accommodating with our arrival time from LA even though it was pretty late. She has lots of indoor and outdoor space for pups to play and my dog felt comfortable right away!
As always, Brenda rocks!
Fantastic! Such a great experience. so accommodating, so kind, and great communication! She sent photos and updates, and was sweet to my 2 dogs. We will be staying with Brenda again! Thanks!
Brenda is amazing!
Brenda is great!! I've used her a few times now and my pup never wants to leave. She's always happy and cheerful, a real pleasure to work with...thank you Brenda!
Brenda took very good care of our dogs. She has a very good arrangement for active dogs like ours, including a fenced back yard and a doggie door to get outdoors. Heidi and Kobe were treated like royalty. It is so much easier leaving your dogs behind when you know will get such loving care.
Read More...
Sam was very happy with Brenda. She is very good with dogs and Sam was very comfortable with her.
Once again, Brenda was absolutely terrific! She keeps me updated on Cookie's day, how she's playing, eating, sleeping and texts me pictures when she can. I can leave Cookie in Brenda's capable care and not be worried; I know she is well cared for, is loved, and is invited back; good deal for a beagle! Brenda is a Godsend in Las Vegas and worth her weight in premium kibble!!
Read More...
Brenda has a heart for all those in her care. I feel blessed to have her a part of the 'family'. I trust that Cookie is in wonderful and lovable hands.
Awesome!
Cooper loved his stay with Brenda! She was so friendly and kept me update on Cooper with texts and pictures! I would definitely recommend Brenda if you are in the Las Vegas area!
Brenda is amazing. Very attentive and caring to my pets. I highly recommend her.
Brenda is the best dog host ever. In the entire world. My chihuahua Belle loves staying with her because it's like being at home for her. I would recommend Brenda to anyone in Las Vegas who needs a kind, good-hearted dog sitter.
Brenda was a terrific host for my beagle. She took the time and effort to show us the ropes and her schedule. She got down on the floor to let Cookie get to know her in her own time and method. While away, Brenda took time to keep me updated and sent me several 'in the moment' photos. It was smooth and I would use her again.
Read More...
It is always so comforting to know that Brenda is watching our dog! Great communication and easy pickup/drop off.
Brenda was a fantastic caretaker of Zander. Great backyard for him to roam around and play basketball along with other dogs. She sent pics of his happy stay almost immediately and did so daily so we knew all was well. VERY thoughtful. We will surely take Zander back another time.
Read More...
My husband and I loved Brenda! She is so kind and loving towards our baby Jada. She kept us informed of how she was doing and I didn't have to worry about who my dog was with. Not only did she watch her and care for her, she also taught Jada how to use a doggy door! We will definitely be using her services again whenever we return to Vegas!
Read More...
I really was happy with Brenda and the care of Bronte. I really do not like to leave the city because of having to board my dog. But being at Brenda's was just like home for my pup.
She was so great and flexible when we were in a bind and watch our dog with short notice. Very nice person.
I am so glad I discovered Brenda on DogVacay. My girl Belle stayed with her for an extended trip while I was out of town, and Belle loved it. Brenda communicated with me every single day, sending me photos and texts of the great time Belle was having at her house.

In short, I will never use anyone else. Brenda will be Belle's sitter permanently, and I can't recommend her highly enough to anyone else looking for an experienced, loving dog companion.

We are very happy to have found Brenda to take care of our dog Missy for 2 days in Las Vegas, close to where we were staying downtown, and the picture she sent showed that Missy was making herself right at home on the couch, her favorite spot, she loves to cuddle up to humans :)
Read More...
Our departure and return times were all over the place, and Brenda was so easy and accommodating! Dusty had a great time, and she sent us pictures daily to let us know how he was doing.
Brenda was the PERFECT dog sitter! We are so hesitant to leave our pup anywhere as he is finicky and does not get along with everyone. We say he is a great judge of character and when we got to Brenda's house he ran up to her immediatly!! She was wonderful in sending us photo updates throughout our trip. It was so comforting to know that our "son" was being so loved and well taken care of. We will definetly be using her again!
Read More...
Brenda was very accommodating and easy to deal with. I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with her and I would recommend her services.
I have two large dogs, one very high energy (a lab). I'm super picky about boarding facilities or whoever takes care of them while I'm out of town. Brenda is a true animal lover and I felt confident leaving my dogs with her. I knew they would be safe and well cared for. I'll be bringing my dogs back to her in the future. She's excellent!
Read More...
Brenda was amazing with my puppy! She even taught her how to behave while she was spending the week with her. I got back a better, more well behaved pet. I'm so grateful and will definitely utilize Brenda in the future. She sent daily updates and made me feel very comfortable. Thank you Brenda!!!
Read More...
Brenda was super accommodating about the fact that I was a little late due to traffic dropping him off and I didn't know exactly when I was picking him up due to coming back into town from a road trip. Since I am a camper/hiker/climber with a schedule that can change without cell phone service, this kind of flexibility is exactly what I needed.

Even though I was without service, Brenda managed to send me a cute photo right away, and when I got back in range there were more awaiting me.

It was obvious brucie's weekend was filled with love and LOTS of play which is exactly what I wanted for him!
Read More...
Brenda is an awesome host! Our dog had a great time with her and the other dogs, and she sent us text pics of him during the day. We know we can trust Brenda to care for our "baby", and we will definitely be contacting her again!
