About Brianne

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! We are Brianne and Walter. We live on Scattergold Farm. Our house is a cozy log cabin in the woods with 40 acres of property located directly on the Shenandoah River with a pond and a driveway that is 1.5 miles long. This means lots of off-leash play time for your dog, or dogs! We have Norwich Terriers and Poodles, so your dog needs to get along well with other dogs. We work from home, so your dog is always supervised and will spend the day playing fetch, running through woods and wildflowers, swimming (with permission), and lounging around in our living room. Your dog will sleep in our bedroom with us.

Did we mention that Brianne's dad is a veterinarian and Brianne has years of experience raising puppies?

- Lots of walks and playtime
- Pick Up/Delivery
- Baths
- 24/7 human companionship
- Administer medications
- Care for elderly and puppies
- Emergency trips to the vet if needed

Your dog will have fun and be safe with us while you travel.

Available last minute and during holidays.

Brianne and Walter were wonderful! Leo really enjoyed staying with them and their property is great for running around!
Brianne and Walter are genuinely nice people who obviously loves animals. They took our dog in like one of the family and we felt completely at ease with them. They sent us great pics everyday and were very flexible with drop off and pick up times.Their home is a dog's paradise. It is safe for the dogs and it has plenty of space for them to run.Mcgruff will never go to another kennel! He will definitely be staying here the next time we go away.
Our puppy, Kody, greatly enjoyed his stay and received wonderful care. The 24/7 care and attention meant that we didn't worry while away. Brianne and Walter treated Kody like one of their own pets and went above and beyond to help him relax. Kody will certainly be back for another Dog Vacay!
Excellent experience.
Wonderful! My dogs were extremely happy and very well cared for!
This was an awesome experience for George. He is a 10 year old dog, adopted just last November from a local shelter. Brianne runs a small farm that provides freedom to run. We visited days before our trip. Brianne texted us pictures & updates while we were away. George adapted easily to all of them. Since his stay he is more out-going with all the dogs that walk in our neighborhood. It was a better experience than he could have received in our local pet hotels. He was on vacation, too.
What an awesome experience for our 1 and half year old Border Collie mix!! The pictures set us at ease. She clearly had the time of her young life. Highly recommend Scattergold Farms!!!
We could not be happier with our experience with Brianne and Walter at Scattergold Farm. Our golden retriever, Sadie, spent two weeks at the farm while we were on vacation and Brianne sent us many photos and updates of Sadie swimming, running and playing with the other dogs there. It looked like Sadie was having such a good time we were not sure she would want to come home! It was very reassuring knowing she was safe and well-cared for in our absence. We would definitely recommend them and will plan on using them again.
Brianna and Walt are great people!!! They Love Dogs, you can tell...
We left our dog for 3 weeks and Brianna send every day pictures. She loves our Dog and we were very happy to received daily pictures.
I highly recommend them to keep your dog in good hands.
Bri and Walter are wonderful people and they took amazing care of my little Henry. Their property is a dogs dream and their little pack of dogs are sweet and playful. Bri sent me photo and text updates daily and really eased my mind while we were on vacation that our pup was being well taken care of. I don't think Henry wanted to leave! I would recommend them without hesitation. They will be seeing Henry again for sure. Thanks again! Hillary, Matt, & Henry
Brianne was the perfect host for Chase, our big GSD. He obviously became part of the family, had had so many walks and other perks I wondered if he would want to come home with us.
Brianne was a great sitter for Cowboy. He was very happy to be with other dogs and get lots of cuddle time with his caregivers.
They are super nice good hearted people that really care about their animals and my dog had a blast! I plan on bringing her back :)
This is a great place for a dog to spend the day or for overnight. Brianne and Walter love dogs. They provide a safe and fun environment. There is plenty of wide open space in a beautiful location. They are response to calls and texts, and provide updates during the stay. My dog can't wait to get there, and comes home fully exercised.
Brianne was wonderful. When I dropped Riser off I was a nervous wreck. I hate leaving my baby and I worry when I'm away. Brianne immediately made me feel great and comfortable that he would be ok. She sent me pictures everyday and filled me in on his latest happy times. Her dogs were very welcoming to Riser and he started to play right away. He enjoyed it so much and had so much playtime he slept all the next day when we got home. Thank you Brianne for allowing me to have a great vacation without worrying. Nancy
Great place for wide open playtime. I will be asking Brianne for another Vacay. Jezebel had a great time. She was all tuckered out when I got her back home.
I would like to say that Brianne was an excellent dog sitter. She was kind enough to send me photos of my dog, Josie everyday, which I thought was very thoughtful. I would highly recommend her for future dog sitting of Josie and would not hesitate to recommend her to my dog friends.

Nothing like dog lovers with a lot of wide open space to babysit your dog. :) Received a ton of pictures to reassure me that our dog was having a good time as well while we were away.

Our beagle is sacked out on the couch as we speak. Thank you, Brianne and Walter, for taking such good care of him. :)
Brianne took such good care of Tully that he didn't want to leave! I knew he was in good hands and felt completely at home leaving my dog with her. I'll definitely call her the next time I plan to go out of town.
Brianne and Walter were great! I don't think my puppy wanted to come home after all the fun she had there.
