About Brandy

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have a large 3 bedroom house. Fully fenced back yard, with a 6 foot fence. There is a large dog run next to the house that leads to the back yard. We stick to a routine with our dog with a walk first thing in the am, then breakfast. We also take him for an evening walk and give him dinner. We give treats for rewards. We have a dog park close, several parks in the area, beach rights, and a track 1 block away for plenty of exercise. The longest your dog would be alone would be close to 4 hours max during the week. Weekends dogs have my full attention. I have a special place for dogs in my heart. I grew up on a farm with all kinds of animals but my main passion is dogs. We have experience with all sizes of dogs. Currently we have a large 4.5 year old great dane that loves to play. We have an 8 year old Chinese Crested that we rescued, and a 7 year old cat. We also work with the MEOW organization and take in foster Dane's every now and again.

Thank you so much! Great communication. I felt totally comfortable leaving my old lab with this family.
Very nice and took my dog with short notice
Leaving Zero for a week was such a difficult decision, but Brandy made it so easy! She and Paul, along with Parker and Beef, took such good care of him that he didn't want to leave when I picked him up. Brandy sent pics and texts throughout the week, which really put me at ease. They're really running a great operation and I would feel so comfortable using them again, and I highly recommend their services to anyone. A big thank you from Zero and myself for being so amazing!

My dogs love staying with Brandy & her family. They get lots of play time and affection and I never have to worry about leaving them.
Brandy & Paul were awesome with our dog. They made sure he got vet care when needed, kept us informed since we were out of the country and sent daily updates and pictures. We appreciate how they took care of Beau like he was their own. Beau had an awesome time with Parker and Beef as well

My dogs are always well taken care of (spoiled!) when they stay with Brandy. I appreciate her flexibility in drop off and pick up times.
Brandy and her family have been so great with our dog, Ziggie. It's obvious that they love dogs and will treat your dog just as their own. Ziggie always comes back to us happy and tired from all the playing, love, and attention she gets there!
Brandy is GREAT! She is very responsive, always shows up on time and gives me updates from her visits with my dog. I have used her services over and over again. I would recommend Brandy to anyone!
Hi, I just want to express how grateful we were to Brandy and her family for taking care of our four pups! They were very happy, they came home tired and were so happy to see us we got reports of how they were doing and pictures with it, I was apprehensive about leaving them but when I dropped them off they were like OK mom you can go now we'll be fine, that's the kind of vibe I got.
I was just so happy that she got to take care of my dogs I will and do recommend her to take care of your pups.

My dogs were well taken care of by Brandy. I received daily updates and could tell that they were happy and relaxed. I appreciate that she was flexible about times when I dropped them off and picked them up.
Brandy and her husband, Paul, are very welcoming and easy-going. They are dog-lovers, and had just added a newcomer to their family: a little Mexican hairless dog named Beef! I was a little concerned about leaving my two 40 pound dogs (one of them can be anxious about other dogs) with Parker, a very friendly, vivacious Great Dane. But after checking with another recent boarder, I left them for a week, and my worries were unfounded. Brandy sent me pictures almost daily of the dogs relaxing together, and they seemed quite happy when I returned. My anxious one even wanted to stay a little longer for some last minute pets from Brandy's mother-in-law, who played the role of the indulgent grandmother! :-) I think they gained a little weight. Both dogs were tapering off some medication to treat hot spots, and those spots resolved during their vacay. I think the fact that their skin improved suggests that they were well-cared for and didn't feel anxious. Thank you Brandy and family for hosting my pups!

Brandy looked after Charlie very well, they have a nice dog friendly place and Charlie enjoyed his stay.
We had a great experience with Brandy and Parker. I received pictures every few days of the doggies having a great time and Rocco loved having a playmate his owns size. He came home healthy and happy, and Brandy followed up with us on his well being after his stay. I really appreciated that. I would recommend Brandy and Parker if you want a caring family and a Gentle Giant to take care of your pet. :)

Annie seems to love going to Brandy's house.
We were new to the area and were leaving for 2 weeks at Christmas. I was nervous about leaving our 2 dogs with someone I didn't know but thankfully that was all wasted emotion. Brandy and Paul took amazing care of our guys! They sent us pictures and updates every few days and our dogs were having a ball. It was such a relief to see them so happy and well taken care of. I cannot say how much appreciated the attention that was given to Calvin and Annie and would highly recommend Brandy to anyone who asked. I know we will be using them again.
