About Brittany

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My name is Brittany and I am a graduate student at American University, studying International Development. I am originally from upstate New York, where my family and I have owned pets my entire life. Unfortunately, I cannot have a pet of my own right now, so I would like to share my love with your animals!

I am available for daily walks, check-ins, sitting, and overnight stays, as my student schedule gives me a lot of flexibility throughout the week and weekend.

Whatever policy you follow with leashes, food schedules, permission on the furniture, bad habits you discourage, I will be sure to reinforce.

*If you have specific questions about my schedule, please feel free to send me a message or a meet-and-greet request!



If you are interested in boarding:
Dogs AND cats are very, very welcome in my home! (#catvacay)
Although I only accept one guest dog at a time, I will sit for multiple pets from the same family.

I live in a very spacious and sunny 2-bedroom apartment with hardwood floors.
The building is a quiet, stress-free atmosphere, with plenty of great areas nearby for long walks.

While I do have one male roommate, I will be the primary caregiver for your pet during their stay (although I may have to compete for cuddling and lap time)!

As we do not have any pets of our own, please feel free to bring your pets favorite bed, toys, or treats with you to make them feel even more comfortable.

**If you are unable to pick up your dog by 11:00 am on the last day of the visit, you will be charged a $10 late pick-up rate. Pickups after 5:00 pm will be charged $20.

Brittany is a sweetheart and will be a loving host to any lucky pup! She greeted me with a warm smile and I could instantly tell that she will be a great host. Her apartment is meticulously clean, bright and airy. The old building is very well maintained and the view out the windows is fabulous. There is nothing quite like the beautifully manicured grounds of older Washington apartment buildings!

Brittany has been a pet owner in the past and has taken care of dogs and cats while in college. She is aware of the concerns of city pet owners and is well prepared to put the safety of her guests first. Any pup staying with her will get the royal treatment and enjoy walks through the Zoo's grounds/ along the park. She is also open to hosting cats, which is a plus for many clients.

I wouldn't hesitate to leave my own dog with her!

Reliable, trustworthy and most importantly did a great job of sitting for our German Shepherd. Our dog was very content and happy when we returned and he clearly missed Brittany when she left because we found him asleep in the room she used when sitting; he never goes in there normally! Will definitely use Brittany again and wouldn't hesitate in recommending her services. Thank you Brittany!

Super easy and timely pickup and droff-off and flexibility with times. My pup was tired and happy when I got her back. Highly recommend Brittany.
