About Brittany

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Flea preventative is MANDATORY, it does not get cold enough for fleas to die!

Hello, I am so glad you stopped by! I am 29 years old and currently in college. My dogs are taken on multiple daily walks, at least 3 miles every day but we often go for long runs up to 7 miles. I operate under the belief that tired dogs are happy dogs, and cater to the needs of each :) I have fostered Siberian Huskies and dog sat for a while now so I am great at working new dogs into our pack. The only behavioral issue we cannot have in my home is dog or child aggression to ensure the safety of all present in the residence. My son and I love dogs, and they make our lives complete! I grew up with 2 German Shepherds so I have been around dogs my entire life, however I don't count those years as "years caring for dogs" since I was not solely responsible for them.

With that being said, I have 2 Siberian Huskies that are very well socialized and love to play! Kenai (4) and Mya (7) are like my children and are never left outside unsupervised! I require a meet and greet before accepting new reservations to give everyone peace of mind when making such an important decision. Keep in mind, guest dogs act completely different when their owners are around, we have never had an issue with pack dynamics after I have accepted a reservation! Also, the guest dogs really enjoy our pack walks!

We live in an 1600 sq ft, 3 bedroom ranch style home, with easy access for older dogs in a quiet neighborhood. The dogs are typically in the family rooms with us, which is half of the house.

I can send as many updates as needed at any time and I love sending videos! I look forward to hearing from you!

Brittany was awesome. She was nice and my dog Leo loved her. She even sent me pictures and videos of Leo while he was there. would definitely recommend her to anybody looking for a pet sitter.
My dog, Luna, just had a safe, fun and happy second stay (6 days) with Brittany. When I dropped her off, she showed no signs of anxiety when she saw where we were. She happily greeted Brittany and seemed very relaxed about the whole thing. She couldn’t wait to reunite with Brittany’s Huskies. I was in 100%-full peace leaving her there, knowing she knows the ropes, and what to expect while at Brittany’s home. During my trip, Brittany sent me darling pictures and videos daily of Luna playing with her dogs and relaxing. A favorite picture I got one day was my dog peacefully laying on part of Mya’s , Brittany’s older dog’s bed along with Mya agreeably sharing her bed with my dog! This is definitely a testimony of how non-territorial and accepting Brittany’s dogs are. Any time I contacted Brittany, she was very quick to respond. Brittany does a great job caring for the dogs, she takes this job very seriously. She sets routines, builds packs with experience and helps a dog understand where she/he fits in. I appreciate how highly responsible Brittany is. She is intelligent, flexible and easy to work with for drop off/pick up times. Luna, being about 1.7 years old and very social, can be a pest about playing with other dogs. Brittany’s younger dog was very good and patient with my dog for playtime. When I picked Luna up, she was totally happy, and I knew she would miss the routines and playtimes that Brittany had in place for her stay.

Brittany and Stout hit it off right away. She was available to through text any time. Very accommodating! It's apparent that she has been doing this for a long time. Would use her again.
I’d like to start by saying that I am an experienced dog owner. I treat and spoil my dogs as one of the kids, as a member of the family. So when it comes to leaving my dog in another person’s care……I am very particular and serious about who and what I choose.
This is my first time using DogVacay. I left my dog with Brittany for 9 nights while I went out of the country and was very much at peace and at ease with the environment Brittany provided. During the meet and greet, Brittany showed a lot of experience and patience in introducing my dog to her dogs as well as a day-care dog that was there. She took time (did not rush me at all) to answer all my questions and address my concerns.
The day I dropped off my dog, Brittany was very reassuring and patient with me as I went over all my notes with her. Brittany contacted me at least once daily with videos or pictures and stories of how my dog was doing, eating, sleeping and interacting with the other dogs. If I contacted Brittany, she was very quick to respond.
I found Brittany to be very calm and caring toward my dog, intelligent and knowledgeable in dog behavior and the dogs warm up to her very fast. She definitely takes this job seriously.
My dog was happy when I picked her up. I have already reserved a future DogVacay with Brittany and feel very good about it!

Brittany took wonderful care of my dog.
Brittany was a wonderful sitter! She kept us updated with lots of pictures and videos. We have a large dog with a lot of energy, and Brittany took great care of her. We also ended up being a couple hours later that we'd expected due to traffic, and she was very flexible and accommodating. Thank you, Brittany!

Great experience. Brittany kept me updated with pictures and videos of my dog playing with her 2 dogs and they loved it.
Brittany is the greatest. We have left our 2 puppies with her 2 times before and we knew they were in good hands when we went out of town for the Thanksgiving Holidays.+
Brittany is great with dogs and keeps me up to date with how my dog is doing with photos and texts while I travel
Brittany is a very competent woman who obviously liked dogs and my dog liked her. Beau came home happy and calm. Brittany kept me informed about Beau's well being when I was traveling and I appreciated that.
I have two 8 month Lab mix brother / sister who have never spend the night away from our house. I searched the normal boarding facilities and didn't feel comfortable they would be looked after properly for the two days we would be away. I searched the internet for other options and came across DogVacay. I had never heard of them before but after learning more I setup a meet and greet with Brittany. She is Fantastic !!! Right away I knew our pups would be in good hands and we had a worry free weekend. She kept us updated with pics and text which kept us in touch. We are using Brittany again next week for 5 days. I'm sure their looking forward to seeing her and their friends again.

We left Bailey with Britany for the first time this week. Britany sent videos and texts to let us know how Bailey was doing. The happy tail wag in the videos spoke volumes. We would definitely use Britany again.
First time using DogVacay and will definitely use it again if all the hosts are as good as Brittany. She answered all my questions i had about this service and was quick with her responses. Worked with me on my pickup and drop off times because i was traveling from out of town. Got pictures everyday and would definitely have Fogerty stay with her again if I ever head back down that way.

Brittany is the most outstanding caregiver you could ever ask for. Every day she would send me videos and picture updates of my dog Maddie and constantly keep me informed. But even more than that, Brittany is a bit of a dog whisperer. She spent her time working with Maddie (a rescued lab) and helped socialize her, teach her tricks, and entertain her. Her attention to your pet's well being is everything you could ask for for your canine member of the family!

I have left my Husky with Brittany two separate times and each time have been extremely happy with the experience. He has a lot of play time, one on one time, and is exhausted when I pick him up. She send great videos and pictures and genuinely loves dogs!

I was a bit leary to leave my baby at all, but the whole experience from the meet and greet to the stay was spectacular!!! Brittany is a very experienced and loving pet host. My pup was a bit skidish at the meet and greet but eventually warmed up a bit. For the drop off, he immediately took to her. Within about 15 mins of my departure, I received a video from her helping to set my mind at ease that my pup would be just fine. Throughout the vacation, I received pics and updates of my pup's progress. He really enjoyed himself with his new friends and was extremely exhausted after the stay...showing that he had lots of fun. I plan to use her again in the future and would recommend her to all of my friends. She is AWESOME!!! Thanks again Brittany for taking such good care of Deebo. He really enjoyed his stay.

Brittany always takes great care of our dog Sophie, and frequently sends us text message updates with pictures. Sophie loves to go to Brittany's house and play there with Brittany's own dogs.
I had to go out of town for work and Brittany did a great job dog sitting as usual. She is flexible to met my travel schedule so I didn't have to worry about being a few minutes late. My dog really enjoyed playing with her dog so I was comfortable with leaving him with her. Thanks Brittany!

Brittany does such a great job attending to my older dog. She really makes sure he is comfortable. And she makes sure all the dogs get along. She has a lot of knowledge about dog behavior.
Brittany was everything we wanted in a DogVacay experience and more! Our dog LOVED staying with her and her sweet son and dogs! Brittany sent us regular updates and videos on how our dog was doing. And our pup was exhausted when we picked her up so we know she had a great time! Very happy with our choice. Would return again if ever in the Savannah area!

My puppy Edie LOVED staying with Brittany! She went on walks and ran around in Brittany's big back yard with her dogs. Brittany sent me plenty of photos and videos so that I could see all of the fun that they were having.

I would HIGHLY recommend Brittany!

Brittany was absolutely incredible! We had a wonderful couple of conversations with her and she provided ample evidence that Agatha was happy running, playing and going to to the bathroom without any issues, as she was on a few pills for an upset stomach. I couldn't recommend anyone more than her. Her pack is very capable of adapting new members quickly and we have ample evidence of them goofing around and playing like friends very quickly.

We had our dog Sophie with Brittany from Thursday morning until the following Monday afternoon. Sophie is a large 110 lb Lab/Collie mix.

Brittany took great care of Sophie and kept us up-to-date with daily text and picture messages.

We will definitely board Sophie with Brittany again when we go on our next trip.

She treated my dog's great again. Kept me updated everyday and took great care of them.
Once again Brittany was just wonderful with my older dog. Her dogs are also wonderful with my dog - playing gently with him. She sent videos of how well they play together. She seems so experienced in handling dogs and making them comfortable I will definitely use Brittany again.

Brittany took great care of our dogs and kept us updated while we were away. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a good dogsitter.
Brittany is GREAT. She is knowledgeable about dog care and behavior, was very flexible and made it super easy for me to do a meet & greet as well as when I dropped my dog off and picked her up. She has a large yard, takes them on walks, and even took a trip to the dog park. She also kept me updated with pictures. I will definitely use her again if I go out of town!

Brittany did a great job introducing Rascal to the other dogs. He had a great time playing with them. And Brittany made sure the other dogs were gentle as my dog is an older guy. She also sent lots of update photos of Rascal playing and hanging out. Thanks so much Brittany!
