About Brandon

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
If I had a tail I would wag it in excitement over hosting your dog!!!

About our family:
I have a flexible work schedule doing IT work for a print and online dog magazine called The Retriever News so I can arrange my schedule to minimize the time I'm away from your dog.

While I am gone my Ragdoll cat Zara will keep watch on your dog. There should be lots of cute cuddling going on.

My fiance Lindsey is currently working a pool schedule so she has lots of flexibility and is around during the day most of the time. We tend to work opposite shifts so that your dog will be home alone for only a minimal of time. She *loves* dogs very much and previously worked at a doggy day care and boarding facility in Los Angeles, CA. While she was obtaining her masters she worked as a manager here. Her duties included working with 40-50 cage free dogs in both the indoor and outdoor area so she is well experienced in appropriate dog behavior and when a dog may be becoming too aggressive with others. She is trained in breaking up these fights and getting both dogs to get along well. She has worked in the past for nonprofit human societies keeping up with dog exercise, cleaning of kennels, and feeding as well as giving the dogs lots of love! She did not own a dog herself for some time so she used other dogs to get in her doggy snuggles. The day she met Tuna the Instagram dog was just about the happiest day of her life.

If you would like to add bathing to your dog's vacation, we offer bathing and light grooming/brushing:
*we use all natural oatmeal shampoo as well as have a natural brightener for dogs with lighter fur.
*Bath would be given on the day of pick-up so that your dog comes home looking brand new!

Our own dog:
Nora is a 1 year old rescue Labrador retriever/basset hound mix. She came from Hoover's House All Dog Rescue in Mukwanago, WI. This facility ships up dogs of all sizes and ages from Missouri from kill-shelters and spends a lot of their time/money getting these dogs adopt ready. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking to add an additional family member to their household. Nora is a very social, friendly, and kind with all types of dogs. She will want to play all day with your dog and enjoys running and chasing after all sizes of guests.

Your dog:
We prefer you bring whatever items your dog normally sleeps with: bed, crate, toys, or blankets to make them feel comfortable and at peace. Nora has extra beds if you need one she would be glad to share. We also have an extra medium/large crate if you do not want to haul yours over here just let us know and we would be happy to set them up for you. Don't feel like you need to bring over lots of toys, Nora has plenty to share that they can wrestle around with. Just let us know what your dog needs and we are happy and flexible to accommodate.


*******If your dog has any special needs we would be happy to accommodate with direction. Lindsey has experience working with dogs with topical and oral medications as well as special diets and allergies. As well as many elderly dogs that need extra tender loving care!

Brandon did a nice job. He took Bailey on a long walk and she was happy when I got home.
We scheduled the meet and greet a few days before our trip to make sure that Katie and Nora would get along. They hit it off so we booked our stay for our pup Katie.

We got frequent updates and fast responses from them which made us feel even more comfortable! They both were super friendly and felt like Katie was in great hands!!

Brandon and Lindsey took Nora and Katie dog to the dog park and Nora was being bullied by another dog and Katie came to her aid and stood up for her. Seems as though they are best puppy friends and we will definitely take Katie back to their house for future stays!!

When we got home we got a puppy report card and a bag of treats for booking with them!! We thought that was a very nice added touch!

This was the 5th time I've used Dog Vacay but this was the first time I ever got a Puppy Report Card! Brandon and his girlfriend, Lindsey, were incredible hosts, and not to mention their adorable little Nora :) They were the perfect fit for our 1 year 10 month old Pit bull mix who tends to be a bit of a handful ?? Not only did they send me texts, pictures and video updates while we were gone, but they also gave her a bath before we came to pick her up plus they left us a little treat bag for booking with them! It was definitely not expected, but a nice little bonus :) In the end, you can feel confident that when you go on vacation so will your pup and I will definitely be booking with them again!

First time using DogVacay and everything went great! Brandon and Lindsey kept me updated with pictures and messages, took him to the dog park, and even sent him home with a report card. I would definitely recommend Brandon!
Brandon and his girlfriend Lindsey absolutely exceeded our expectations. They were responsive, laid back, accommodating, and kind. Their dog was super friendly and a perfect playmate for our 5 month-old puppy. They were generous with their time, shared pictures and updates, and even had the dog's things packed up, his crate broken down, and the dog leashed and ready when we pulled up in front of their house to pick him up. What lovely people, and what a relief to have such an amazing option for when we need to be out of town and can't bring our dog. Much appreciated!

Brandon did a great job with our Old English Sheepdog. He is a lot of puppy, but he enjoyed his stay and met some new friends. Easy to work with, and very accommodating.
It took our dog a few days to adjust, and Brandon and Leslie were very understanding. Would have liked a few more updates, but on the whole, was very happy with them and will use next year :)
Brandon was a great fit for our new pup. Our puppy Rudy, came back to us with no issues and the frequent updates and pictures were a great relief to me and my family. Rudy made a new friend in Brandon's dog Nora and I believe he was given as much attention as he needed. I highly recommend Brandon and I will not hesitate on using his services again. Thanks Brandon!

Brandon and Lindsey were wonderful hosts for our dog Buster. Buster got to play with Nora the house pup and we received updates via text which was very comforting. We plan to send Buster here again and would definitely recommend their home for your pet's vacay.

Brandon is a fantastic dog host. My dogs were taken care of extremely well. I could tell they really bonded over the weekend. They were given lots of attention and walks. He sent me photos and updates. I will definitely be using him again and highly recommend him! This was my first experience with dog vacay and it was comforting to know my dogs were in good hands.
