About Brittney

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Check out Roscos Public Instagram Profile: @roscochesterton

My Home: I live in a beautifully renovated 1250 sq ft 1950's bungalow in Renfrew. Conveniently located in the inner city just off 16th Avenue and Deerfoot Trail with close proximity to the Calgary International Airport. My home is a block off a very quiet off leash park and a few blocks away from busier Tom Cambell's Hill Natural off leash park. The flooring in my home is hardwood which is very strong and durable. It has to be for 2 puppies right? My home also has a big grassy backyard which is fully fenced in.

My Pups: I am the mom of a 7 pound Blue Pomeranian named Rosco, and a 12 pound Red Cockapoo named Ruby. Rosco aka the majestic urban fox has a Napoleon complex whose most lethal weapons are being a prominent socialite, giving un-relentless kisses and a having a killer smile. His favorite thing to do is chew on squeaky toys and go to the off leash park. A visit to the off leash park isn’t complete unless Rosco has said hello to every dog, and human in the park.

Ruby aka suckerpunch is a giant heart breaker. She is 12 pounds of beautiful curly red fur, giant floppy ears and big brown puppy eyes. She makes humans and canines alike weak in the knees. Ruby thinks she is a Golden retriever as her favorite thing to do is retrieve balls. She will retrieve balls for hours at the off leash park. Ruby is pretty shy when she meets new dogs but by the end of their stay she gets quite attached to her new friends. After we walk, socialize at off leash parks and play fetch we generally go home and have a delicious treat and dinner. Then we are usually so tired we all cuddle up together and have a nice relaxing puppy nap.

Schedule: I am a professional that works downtown so my work week is 7:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday to Friday. I am generally away from the house for a 9 hour (or less) period. However please note that from May 1st to September 7th I have Friday's off from work. While I am at work or away from the house Ruby and Rosco have free range of the house. Generally speaking, most of the guest pups that book stays with us book for extended weekends. For example: Thursday night to Monday. That being said I have many guests that are comfortable with my work schedule and book with me throughout week days or for weeks at a time.

Preferences: It is my strong preference to do a meet and greet with guest pups and their parents. Even though Ruby and Rosco are only 5 years old, they both have very mellow and relaxed dispositions. Therefore I prefer to specialize in Toy, Small & Medium Breeds that are a bit older or have similar temperaments. It is important to me that your pup and my pups have great chemistry before accepting a booking request. Also I generally only accept one booking at a time. This means your pup truly joining a family for their stay and my attention will not be divided with other guest pups.

What makes me special as a host is that my home is full of love and puppies! My puppies spend very little time on a leash because my home backs onto an off leash park. Off leash adventures aren't a weekend activity in our home. It is a multiple times a day activity! I like to keep hosting intimate, and provide individual attention so the dogs on vacation with me will return home fitter, happier, healthier and more relaxed than they arrived.

***UPDATE***
One of my best friends and Ruby and Rosco's favorite auntie named Chanelle has recently found herself out of a job due to the economic downturn in the city. We are using this as an advantage to ofter further daytime adventures to guest pups during days I am at the office. Chanelle stays in my home and watches Ruby and Rosco anytime I am away on vacation. Ruby & Rosco absolutely adore her and are loving all of the extra attention they are getting. Plus Chanelle is taking them on hour long morning walks and hour long afternoon walks before I even get home from work. So many puppy walks!!

Brittney & Chanelle were excellent dog sitters! Bandit came home happy and tired, and I can tell he misses his little buddies Rosco and Ruby already! I can tell that Bandit was well cared for, and I received tons of updates and photos while I was away.
Conscientious, caring, fun, fabulous!
Thanks so much!

as usual, Teddy had a blast...
Brittney and Chanelle ensured Hope had a great pet vacay! Based on the amount of photos/videos, I can tell Hope had a blast swimming, running around with Roscoe and Ruby and getting LOTS of snuggles. I would recommend them to any friend in need, and plan on leaving Hope there again in the future!

Brittney took such great care of Molly! Lots of walks and cuddles. Brittney also shared photos with me throughout the weekend, which was a great way to ease my mind that Molly was a happy pup. Thanks so much!
Our beagle Bosco had a great time at Brittney's...he came home happy and healthy. We loved receiving the photo and video updates and we appreciated how Brittney and her pups welcomed Bosco into her home and made him feel like part of the family. I highly recommend Brittney and co. Bosco is looking forward to his next stay with his new friends.

Brittney is so kind and caring. My dog was pleasantly exhausted after spending a long weekend with her and the other dogs. It was like a doggie 5 star resort. Fenced in back yard. Safe neighborhood.
Brittney is an energetic and kind person that our dog Marlow loves. He is instantly relaxed at her home, and it's clear from all the photo updates that when he's there he's just one of the family. We couldn't imagine a better place for him to stay.
perfect place to leave our pup.
Teddy was so happy.
Teddy had a wonderful time in Brittney's care. We received updates, photos & videos while we were away...a nice treat. Thank you.
Ruby had a wonderful experience with Brittney. I had complete peace of mind leaving her there. It was fun to get the updates, photos and videos of what they were up to. Thanks Brittney for making this such a positive experience!! You are an awesome dog sitter and I wouldn't hesitate to use you again!!!

Brittney was pawesome! This has been the second time our Soda was cared for by Brittney and I can attest that Soda had more fun this time around -- being more familiar with her home and resident pets. Soda loved the runs at the off leash park and came home exhausted! Thanks Brittney for the grand time!

Toby's third stay with Brittney, Ruby and Rosco - he came back happy and tired as always! He loves going on 'vacation' to Brittney's house, he always has a great time.
I absolutely LOVED staying at Brittney's! I stayed for a week and I had so much fun! Rosco & Ruby and I became great friends. I missed my mom at first, but not for long. I was too busy being spoiled to worry too much about that! Brittney took us for lots of walks and to the dog park! She sent my mom lots of pictures and videos, and made sure she knew I was having a great time while she was away (she worries about me a LOT!). Mom says she will definitely be sending me back next time she goes away somewhere I can't go. I can't wait! - Apollo Peanut.

Brittany is amazing and her dogs are so well behaved. Our dog Chili is quite anxious and when I dropped her off you could tell she wanted to be there. Brittany sends videos, photos and updates throughout Chili's stay. I also love that she walks them numerous times during their stay. I cannot say enough good things about Brittany. I recommend her to all my doggy owning friends!

Brittney was a great host for our Pomeranian for three weeks. She sent updates, photos, and even video of Teddy, which was nice, but what impressed me most was the visit we had with her before we finalized our plans to have her host our dog - she was careful to have us see her home, see if there were any concerns about the environment that we could see, was careful to get to know Teddy and be friendly with him (unlike some potential hosts we visited).

Excellent!
Excellent!
This was Mia's 3rd stay with Brittney and her pups. Everything was excellent as always! Brittney goes above and beyond to exceed our expectations with several updates and photos of runs, play time and just an overall wonderful experience for Mia. Amazing host! Highly recommended.

Brittney is a true dog lover. She has watched our dog Chili a few times now and it is always a great experience. She walks them repeatedly throughout the day and always sends us pictures and updates. She is a great host. I cannot say enough good things about her.

This was our second time leaving our dog, Toby, with Brittney. As before, everything went smoothly and we received regular updates. Everything was great, Toby came back to us happy and tired from his runs, walks and dog park adventures.
Brittney was amazing with our 2 year old Wheaten Terrier, Mia. Brittney went above and beyond to ensure Mia was comfortable and well looked after. This host exceeded our expectations in all areas. We were sent pictures and videos and it really added a personal touch to using a dog sitter instead of a kennel facility. Thank you Brittney! Highly recommended!

Our dog Phin has stayed with Brittney, Ruby and Rosco twice now--my only regret is that I didn't write this pawsitive review sooner!!

The first time Phin stayed with the gang was for a whole week. We had a meet-and-greet a few days before and immediately I could see how much Brittney loves dogs, not only her own, but others' as well! The house was so well set-up for having multiple pups, plenty of toys, treats and a spacious backyard. Ruby and Rosco were equally welcoming and I left the meet-and-greet feeling great about our decision to have Brittney watch Phin.

We arranged an evening drop off for Phin the night before we left so he could acclimatize while Brittney was home. Within an hour of dropping him off, I was receiving some photos and updates from Brittney assuring me that Phin was adjusting well to the environment. I really appreciated Brittney taking the time to provide updates every couple days while we were away.

When we returned from our trip and went to pick up Phin, we could tell he had a great time with his new friends--being an "only dog", he really enjoyed the social interaction.

Only a couple weeks later we asked Brittney to watch Phin for 1 night when we went skiing. On the drive over, Phin quickly realized whose house we were near and became very excited to see his friends! This was also a great feeling, to KNOW how happy he was to be returning.

I would not hesitate to recommend Brittney to my friends with dogs--I know I've mentioned her name and this service to at least a handful of people so far, and my friends who have used her since have also been very pleased!

We were a bit anxious about leaving Berger for a long weekend for the first time, but Brittney put us right at ease with frequent pics and updates. She took great care of him - lots of long walks and trips to the park. When we picked Berger up he was pooped and very relaxed after a fun weekend with Brittney, Rosco and Ruby :)

Britteny is a heroine! She takes great care of my pug dog Peru. He loves it there!
Brittney was wonderful! At our meet and greet we immediately got a great vibe from her - she was well organized and really knew what she was doing with her dogs and ours. We left Toby with her for just over two weeks, and we received so many pictures, videos and updates about him while we were away! We never once worried about him and we knew he was having an amazing vacation of his own. On top of that, our flights home were delayed and Brittney was so accommodating about letting Toby stay an extra night. It was so nice to have that peace of mind while travelling. Thank you again and I'm sure Toby will be back to be visit :)

Brittney was very accommodating for our dog, Soda! She sent us lots of pictures, which was going beyond what we expected. By the time we picked him up, Soda was exhausted, and you could tell that he was well taken care of. I would recommend Brittney to everyone.

Brittney was great at sending us updates on how our dog was doing which made a huge difference for us.
Brittney is a very experienced and awesome host. My dog spent wonderful and happy four days at her place. Highly recommend.
Britteny and her dogs were great! Definitely would use her services again.
Brittney was awesome with our little Prince. She was able to take him overnight with very little notice. Prince loved it there, and he had a lot of fun with his new friends. She is very caring and attentive to the animals. Prince loved his visit, and I am sure he will be excited for his next visit. Thank you Brittney :)

Brittney was AMAZING.....Kept my lil guy happy and had him out on plenty walks. She gave me a morning, afternoon and evening report along with pictures and videos :) HIGHLY recommend Brittney.
Grub seemed to enjoy his stay and making two new little friends. I received good communication from the host. Sufficient play area for a large dog and I'm glad the host made special time for Grub. Would recommend.
Brittney was an amazing caregiver for my high energy pooch. She was very considerate of his personal needs and went far beyond expectations! To kennel my dog versus having him go on long andventures, morning and night? No question. She kept me updated every day with pictures and little notes which were greatly appreciates. Brittney seriously was amazing.

Brittney is a great host! When I had to make a last minute change to my travel plans, she was so accommodating. Darwin loves staying with her, he starts getting excited in the car and runs to her house. Makes me leaving him easier!
Brittney was so wonderful to our dog Chili. She sent me daily updates with pictures as well. She walked Chili sometimes 4 times a day. Brittney has such a relaxed attitude which enabled us to enjoy our holiday. I would love to have Brittney watch our dog again.

Brittney was absolutely delightful - and her pups were perfect playmates! My girls came home happy, healthy and exhausted. They loved all of the walks and runs they went on. Would absolutely recommend!
Brittney was awesome! She is a true dog lover! Pippa had so much fun with her and her pack. We felt very comfortable leaving our dog with Brittney and she was very well looked after. We got regular picture updates of Pippa playing with and hanging out with Brittney's two pups. We would not hesitate to utilize her services again.

Brittney was fantastic! She really went out of her way to make Darwin feel at home. She sent me pics that showed Darwin having a blast, he went on walks, played with other dogs and chased frisbee/ball around. He got along with two dogs Brittney has at home, who are very cute and very well behaved by the way. Darwin can't wait for another visit!
