About Brandise

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

Thanks for checking out my profile. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am looking forward to offering your dog the vacation of their lives!!!

I am a super active young girl that works as a professional music and dog photographer. I have recently relocated to the desert from Los Angeles and miss my dog sitting family. I have always been fascinated by all animals, however large or small and promise to show your fur baby the vacation of his or her life. We refer to the chateau in the city 'HOTEL SHANGRI-PAW' - you can think of it as a private pet oasis in the heart of Palm Springs.

I live, don't eat (animals), sleep with and breath animals. I have a large single family home on a very quiet street with a safe cool, shaded backyard for your pups to play in. Shangri-paw is a rare oasis amongst the hustle and bustle of the city - located directly across from the beautiful swimming pool. My neighborhood has a very strong community of dog parents and offers the option of pleanty of socialization with other four legged friends for your loved ones. If your dogs enjoy hiking, I'd love to take them on my daily hikes with me. If they prefer to lounge pool side, that works too. Whatever they choose.

Good luck with your search and I hope that you will consider my humble abode as your pets next vacation destination. Please read my reviews and reach out if you have any questions whatsoever.

I am also more than happy to set up skype so you can say hi to your pooches and will send you as many text updates with photos and videos of your doggies vacay so you can rest assured they are safe and sound.

Brandise was awesome! She sent us daily photo updates on Charlie.

We originally dropped Charlie off at another home, but the sitter was not able to handle Charlie since he was having a little separation anxiety (which he usually doesn't experience). Thankfully Brandise took Charlie in for the rest of the booking. When we picked up Charlie he seemed very happy. He looks like he was getting along great with Brandise and her cat, which is the exact opposite of what was described to me over the phone with the previous dog-sitter.

So glad Brandise was there to save Charlie from a bad situation and a non-dogloving dog sitter.
Brandise is the best! She's affordable, easy to reach, so sweet and accommodating, and most importantly, she's SO great with Marzipan! She just really loves dogs and really cares, and it shows. Every time Marzipan has stayed over I've gotten amazing photo updates of her in fun places doing fun activities, and every time I pick her up from Brandise's, she seems really sad to be leaving. What more could you ask for? Thanks for everything Brandise...Marzipan can't wait to see you again soon!
Brandise did it again! She keeps our pooch happy, healthy, and entertained while we are gone, and I couldn't feel better about leaving our lady with her. She is reliable, sends great photos and updates, and is always flexible and accommodating. 4 star hotel!
Brandise was great! We loved getting daily updates and pictures of our pup and we could tell she was in great hands. We're definitely calling Brandise again next time we're out of town!! Highly recommended!
My little guy, Sammy, stayed with Brandise over the holidays. I was super nervous, because it was by far the longest I've ever left my pup; however, Brandise was great! She soothed my worried mind. She's very kind, always just a text or phone call away, and sent me pics each day of Sammy's adventures. I loved that she took him on long walks and hikes, so he wasn't cooped up inside all day.

When I picked up Sammy he was super happy and didn't seem to notice I was gone for so long, which bruised my motherly side, but made me feel so much better about leaving him behind for so long. I know he had a great time.

Definitely go with Brandise! I'd recommend her to my family and friends.
I actually would like to give Brandise 7 or 8 stars. For several years my husband and I have struggled to find a place to board our 2 pugs. They seemed to come home sick and freaked out from every kennel. I heard about doggievacay and contacted several dog sitters.

First of all, Brandise was the only one to promptly respond. We were completely assured that she would take care of our boys as if they were her own, and she even offered to drive to us to pick them up.

Then tragedy stuck. The day my husband went to drop them off (which happened to be the day before we were leaving for Christmas vacation), one of the dogs wriggled out of his harness and ran into the street where he was struck by a car. Brandise was as concerned as we were, and calmly helped us, with the vigilant assistance of Nicole at doggievacay, to find a nearby emergency vet. We received many phone calls that evening from Brandise, Nicole and others. They also checked on our little pup's status at the vet. We nearly cancelled our trip, but it turned out to be just a little scrape and we were assured that he would be able to convalesce with Brandise. We left for the east coast and she picked him up from the vet the next morning.

Over the two weeks of our vacation she sent us pictures and updates about them nearly every day. Unlike every other boarding experience we have had, we felt totally at ease and confident that our boys were being well looked after. When we picked them up they were bright-eyed, curly-tailed, and full of energy (they even seemed kind of reluctant to leave her!). We will definitely be calling Brandise in the future!
I'm sorry this is late... WOW what can I say - Brandies is amazing!!! To be honest I am very protective of my two dogs and she was so caring and really made me feel so secure with me leaving them with her care. I was on vacation as she keep me posted how they were doing ...which was great! I will always use her when I need to go out of town, without a doudt. I will never look elsewhere ... I would not look anywhere else if I were you.. I promise she is awesome. Chris
Brandise was amazing! She sent us incredible photos everyday (many of which can be seen in her profile). Our pooch got great exercise while under Brandise's care, and was happy, healthy and in great hands. I
Our girl was in perfect care! We loved getting pictures while traveling and updates to know our pooch was ok. Brandise was responsible, kind, loving to our dog, and totally efficient and prompt. A GREAT first experience with dogvacay.
