About Brenda

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Updated to better reflect what a stay with a Boxer means :)

Let your dog come stay and play in a two story house with an extra side lot for a large play space and doggie door for their convenience. Note: the update for this site doesn't let me distinguish between home and away. I work a regular job, and with this being city living, the doggie door is accessible when I'm home.

Your fuzzy companion will enjoy some time with a playful boxer, multiple dog beds, walks around a vibrant neighborhood full of smells and all the loving/snuggles they can handle.

Nonnie can lay around like a lazy bones, but when she plays, she plays like a Boxer... less chase and fetch... more wrestle and chewing on various dog parts. It's the Boxer way.

As a life long dog lover and care giver, I've cared for kidney impaired, cancer fighting dogs, and just the regular old fashioned mischievous furry old souls of the world.

Don't worry about shedding or drool - I've seen it all and have the cleaning products to prove it.

Brenda was beyond amazing with Sofia. The only time prior to this that we left Sofia with someone else, she was crying and unhappy the whole time. When we left Sofia with Brenda, she barely even noticed we left because she was immediately having so much fun with both Brenda and Nonnie. It was nice to have an entire week and not worry about if Sofia was being cared for, because Brenda was treating Sofia like she was her own. We got pictures and texts and video updates throughout the week to see how much fun they were all having together. I will recommend Brenda to anyone, because of how wonderful she was with Sofia. Thank you, Brenda, for being so awesome and sending Sofia back happy, healthy, and exhausted. I would give 10 stars if I could.
Brenda is fantastic. She took exceptional care of our golden and sent us plenty of pictures during his stay. We will certainly use her again.
Great host. She enjoys being around my dog, and is flexible with pick up times. The occasional photo and funny story really helped me feel comfortable leaving my fur child in her care for extended stays. Highly recommended, and I will continue to be a repeat customer!
Brenda is an excellent dogsitter. She really loves dogs. I would recommend her to anyone.
Brenda was very accommodating when it came to scheduling, and she was terrific with my elderly dog who has somewhat special requirements not everyone is willing to deal with. After his vacation, my dog seemed happy and tired, which is the best combination possible. I'd recommend Brenda and wouldn't hesitate to book with her again!
Brenda responded promptly and agreed to watch roscoe after I made a last minute request. She also sent pictures while he was on his stay. I was very comfortable leaving roscoe with Brenda and definitely plan on bringing him back!
Reserving with Brenda was great. She responded to my request for a meet and greet within an hour and was able to fit me in. Her house was very prepared to host another pet and her Boxer Nonnie makes for a great playmate. She sent me updates every day that i was gone; pictures along with stories and I felt great knowing that PB was having an enjoyable stay.

I will definitely be reserving with her again next time I am out of town!
Brenda took Lucy overnight for me this past weekend. She was very flexible with pickup/dropoff times and while I was away, I got texts from her updating me on how she was doing which was really comforting. I would absolutely recommend Brenda to anyone who is looking for a home away from home for their dog; you can tell she is a true animal lover.
Brenda is awesome! She totally spoiled boss as if he was her own. Boss loves her and Nonni i think their house is his fav vacation spot! Brenda and Nonni are friendly and full of Joy. Brenda is flexible and easy to work with as well as book. She had a loyal customer as long as she is boarding dogs. I would reccomend her to every one. And if I was to ever get another dog he/she would be a loyal Brenda and Noni boarding guest too!
I was really comfortable leaving my dog with Brenda. She was flexible with times and I knew that Sadie would be in good hands. I will be calling her again.
