About Brandon

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My wife, Jenn, and I are two outdoorsy animal lovers who would love to watch your dog while you're away! We live in a townhouse next to a wooded area with trails and large open grassy areas where we can run around with your dog to his or her heart's content. There are also plenty of dog parks nearby that we'd be more than happy to take your dog to! Your booking comes with swanky amenities such as unlimited belly rubs, television, music, and an abundance of squirrels to chase (outside, not in the home).

Currently we're the humans for two lovable cats, Dale and Cooper, who tend to do their own thing around the house. Our family also includes a 1 1/2 year old golden retriever named Bailey, a big goofy oaf who's never met a dog or human he didn't like. Bailey usually stays with our parents during the week but frequently comes over on weekends for slumber parties and to watch football. Let us know your preference -- whether or not you'd like Bailey to keep your dog company -- and we'll be happy to accommodate. In addition to having dogs for the past decade, I also walked dogs part-time before graduate school a few years ago, so I have plenty of experience taking care of dogs of a variety of shapes and sizes. We welcome house-trained furry friends of all sizes and breeds!

We treat animals like part of the family and your furry companion will be no exception. Expect 2 to 3 good walks through the neighborhood and additional potty breaks and playtime on weekdays. On weekends we may go hiking or take your dog to the dog park to romp around -- if your dog requires more or less exercise, just let us know!

To ensure that your dog receives the love and attention that he or she is accustomed to, we generally watch over only one dog (and his or her siblings) at a time, though we will make occasional exceptions for very friendly dogs and only upon receiving the permission of both guests. We both have regular jobs so we ask that only dogs who will be okay at home for 8 to 9 hours during the day stay with us during the work week. On weekends we offer 24/7 supervision.

We try to keep the calendar up to date, but if your date is unavailable please don't hesitate to reach out to us -- we can be flexible sometimes! We check messages frequently and will respond quickly to any inquiries. Thanks and we look forward to meeting your furry companions!

If Brandon’s dog sitting service was an airline, he would be first class all the way. Superb service; very reliable; he kept me informed; and the dogs loved him. Would strongly recommend Brandon to anyone.
Brandon was great! He watched both mine and my sister-in-laws dog who had a great time. Would definitely book him again.
Perfect, I couldnt have asked for a better experience for Tinka. We were provided pictures consistently throughout the day and kept in the loop of our pups activities. Would definitely recommend and book with Brandon again!
Awesome hosts located right in my neighborhood! My dog had a great time with their golden retriever and took lots of walks. She seemed really happy when I picked her up. I will definitely be using them again in the future.
Brandon and Jenn are the absolute best! They have watched our boxer captain several times and treat him like family. They take him on walks and send lots of photos. Captain loves staying with them and we will certainly keep booking at the he barkway! Thanks!!!

Jenn & Brandon were great sitters. They sent numerous photos to us over a very short period. We would absolutely ask them to sit again and recommend them to anyone! Thanks!
Brandon and Jenn were awesome! They were super flexible and sent so many pictures!! Nala looked happy in all her photos. They even brought over the family dog, Bailey, for the weekend to romp around with her! Nala is a happy girl with puppy friends! I will definitely use them again.

Brandon and his wife were amazing parents to our pup during a 2-week stay while we were on vacation. They sent tons of pictures daily, depicting all the fun things our pup was up to -- hikes in a nearby national park, fetch behind their house, tug of war inside, and cuddling on the couch. It was clear both humans and dog were happy campers! It was such a relief to know things were going so well and we will absolutely be leaving our pup with them again! We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

My best experience with DogVacay yet! Brandon was extremely accommodating and very professional. Very flexible and loved on my girl like she was his own. I was offered numerous pictures of his excellent care of her; walking and playing with his dog. I can't speak more highly of his service. Thank you, Brandon! Tink can't wait until her next visit!

Brandon and his wife were great! I got multiple photo updates and felt like Chloe was really making herself at home at their house :)
Brandon and Jenn are amazing - they are super nice and incredibly flexible. They are so good about sending pictures of my pup - I feel like every time I check my messages while I'm away, I have an update so I know my dog is doing alright and having fun :) I highly recommend!!!

Brandon & Jenn were simply AWESOME! They sent tons of pictures of our dog throughout the trip, they were extremely responsive, and flexible. We will definitely be back because our dog clearly had fun and received lots of love, including some new toys to play with. Overall, our experience was nothing but positive and we highly recommend Brandon & Jenn! :)

Brandon and Jenn were great hosts for my dog Dylan-- took great care of him, sent me photos every day, were quick to communicate and easy to work with. I will happily bring my dog back to them any time.
Brandon and Jenn gave us daily updates with photos. Pick up and drop off went smoothly and my pup was very well cared for, especially considering she wasn't feeling too great. Will consider reserving them again in the future!
Super nice hosts! They were well prepared, and just great with my dog. I worried that their cats might not like my energetic dog but it all worked out perfectly.

Beautiful clean townhouse in very nice neighborhood, and they took my pooch on great walks. He was delighted to stay, and seemed to enjoy his time very much. The squeaky toy probably contributed a little! Made it a good vacation for me as well as the dog.
