About Brigitt

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Being a lifelong animal lover and certified dog trainer as well as an AKC Evaluator, clients that choose my care receive a lot of extras including: boarding, training, daycare, all pet sitting, dog walking, grooming and transport. It is my sincere desire to provide a high quality, nurturing and safe environment for your pet(s) so please check with me on all requests because I get bookings through other venues as well as dogvacay and my calendar may show availability when I am actually full. I only take in 3 dogs at a time to provide your dog with the best of care and I fill up quickly so booking way ahead of time is best. My care is an extension of what you yourself provide for your pet. I recognize that all dogs are different and cater each pet in my care to meet their individual needs. I am able to accommodate all sizes and breeds together or separate, whatever their comfort level. You should feel confident that your pet(s) will be safe and happy in my care. Your pet(s) will receive individual attention as well as plenty of play with other available dogs. As a partner in your pet's care my desire is to keep lines of communication open at all times as my interaction with you is as important as my interaction with your pet(s). My goal is to provide your pet(s) with a stellar experience and ensure their desire to return to my care in the future. As a positive trainer I am able to work with individual dogs and help them with any behavior issues you might have concerns with. Your dog(s) become part of my pack and build their self esteem. Please read on to see what a couple of my past clients have said:
"I met Brigitt a couple years ago through the therapy dog program, Pet Prescription Team, that certified our dogs. She has been a life saver with my animals many times!
I have a 22 year old cat in renal failure and she has always stepped in when I have to go out of town. She not only feeds, brushes, and gives him extra love, she also gives him his fluid treatments that he needs every other day!
I also have a new Australian Shepherd puppy and he has been going to her house for day care during my work hours for the last 3 weeks. I am a veterinarian, so having a safe place is essential. Not only is it safe, but Brigitt supplies an enriched, active environment for my busy little guy!!
She is caring and pays attention to all their needs. Brigitt also has extra training in animal behavior and really enjoys interacting with them. I trust her with all my animals and recommend her highly if you are needing pet care."
Carol McLaughlin, DVM

"My dog , Roxy has stayed with Brigitt many times. Brigitt is amazing with dogs! She is calm and caring and seems to sense what the dog needs. My Roxy is completely spoiled when she stays with her! When I am on vacation I can actually relax knowing my "fur-baby" is getting the best of care. When I went on vacation this past summer, Brigitt went and picked up Roxy from my house and brought her to her house for the week. While there, Roxy has access to children, who she loves , other dogs and a big yard, which give her playtime and exercise and Brigitt who literally let Roxy sleep in her bed! Roxy came home fit and well behaved...gotta love that! I have recommended her services to my friends many times. You will not find a more caring "dog-sitter" than Brigitt!"

No doubt, it has been the best experience for us and our Frisby. After 10 days with Brigitt, Frisby was a happy and healthy dog. We are SO glad to have a comfortable place for our shy Frisby to stay. Thank you so much for interacting with her and letting her feel at home. It was much easier traveling knowing Frisby wasn't just sitting in a kennel or a room, but in the company of caring humans and other furry friends!

Brigitt was a lifesaver in our time of need. My father in law passed away suddenly out of state.We got a call at 1:00 a.m.. I went on line in the middle of the night requesting a reservation for Brigitt to watch our dog Chloe. She replied back by 7:00 a.m. that she would watch Chloe while we were gone. It was such a relief to know Chloe would be well taken care of before we boarded the plane that morning.

She is professional and she loves the dogs. We are thankful she took our 4 furbabies so we can go to our much needed vacation. We hope we can book again with her.
