About Brandi

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I'm Brandi. I'm a registered nurse and lifelong animal lover. I have two dogs, Marina and Duncan, and dog-loving cat Mo. We would love to host feline-friendly dogs at our one-story ranch house with large fenced yard. Special diets and medications are no problem. I am able to provide round-the-clock supervision on weekends but M-F your dog must be able to be left alone with my pets or in a crate while I am at work. Weekday drop-off times must typically occur by 7:30am, but some days I'm able to be more flexible due to a slightly irregular work schedule. Weeknight pickups must occur by 5pm or later. Saturdays and Sundays are extremely flexible for drop-off and pick-up.

If your dog is a breed with a high prey drive (ie. Siberian husky, Alaskan malamute, Jack Russell terrier, greyhound, coonhound, whippet, saluki, Akita, doberman pinscher, chow chow, rottweiler, pit bull terrier), please consider a boarding situation without cats unless you know for certain that your dog does not chase them. I will consider these breeds on a case-by-case basis and will require a meet-and-greet. My cat is calm and friendly to most dogs who behave likewise, but has become stressed around some of the aforementioned breeds. He does well with herding breeds such as border collies and Australian cattle dogs.

I am happy to care for puppies and senior dogs as long as they have good bowel/bladder control or are able to be crated while I am gone.

I could tell my two dachshunds had a great weekend at Brandi's. This is the place for them on our future out of town trips.
Wonderful. My dog seemed to enjoy her two day / one night stay with Brandi and her two pups. Brandi was very accommodating with my uncertain pick-up time. Would recommend and definitely bring my dog back!
Another great time!
Brandi did a great job with my 14 yo deaf dog who is on a special diet. It was so nice that my dog didn't have to stay in the confines of a boarding kennel for 2 weeks. He really enjoyed being in her home and enjoyed the company of her dogs. Would definitely ask Brandi to watch Scooby again!

Friendly, professional, Kaya seemed to bond well with other dogs and felt right at home!
Brandi was very cooperative with my schedule and my pup came home sleepy from all the fun she had! Thank you so much!
It was a great piece of mind having Brandi watch our dog. The process was organized, convenient and we could tell Brandi really liked dogs.
Brandi was incredibly accommodating and flexible with our last minute reservation. She sent adorable photos of our dog each day, was lovely, and showed much love to our dog. We will always use her for future trips!
She was very understanding and flexible for drop off and pick up times. Her communication is very good and I definitely recommend her.
Worked out really well. Will use again.
I will NEVER use anyone else! Brandi is a blessing to us, but mostly for our girl Liz. She is a rescue, afraid of almost everything, and never been away from our side. When she was at the shelter in Omaha, the staff couldn't even evaluate her. All she did was hide. However a good samaritan called the Chesapeake Bay Retriever Rescue, who picked her up, and we got the love of our life. I was never going to put her in a kennel situation again, and was frantic, until I found Brandi! Liz is very leery of people, so I was surprised when she checked out the house, the other dogs, then went and sat promptly at Brandi's feet to be petted. When I left, Liz wondered where I went, but sat at Brandi's side looking quite secure. Brandi has a big back yard with a tall fence so the dogs can really run and play. Liz went for walks, had lots of treats, and someone who really cared about her. You could tell she had made herself at home, safe with Brandi. We cannot say enough as to how grateful we are to have found you. I will never have to worry if we are away from Liz again! Thank you ever so much for your loving care.

Look no further. Brandi was fantastic! It was like summer camp for my pooch who got along famously with her two dogs. Don't be alarmed, they are a bit cautious and "barky" at first but they warmed up fast! I was so happy to know that my dog wasn't being left alone in a cage all day. This was the main reason I selected Brandi over the other people in the area. Having my pup left alone all day long doesn't really seem any better to me than putting her in a kennel. I got daily updates and some pics of the stay, and was thrilled my dog had friends to play with! She was depressed when we left.

There is no question that I will be coming back to Brandi every time I leave town.
