About Brian

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Brian and I've lived with dogs most of my life. As a child, my family had a Toy Poodle. Four months out of college, I rescued an eight month old American Staffordshire Terrier that I cared for until her last days at the young age of 16! I've spent time training dogs, specializing in dogs with aggression issues. Over the years, I've volunteered with multiple non-profit organizations to care for, train and foster dogs. I was a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and an American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. I've also trained dogs in sports such as Schutzhund and Mondioring. With all of this experience, I've lived with up to 4 dogs at once, including breeds such as, but not limited to, American Staffordshire Terrier, Chihuahua, American Bulldog, Bull Mastiff, German Shepherd, Border Collie, and Rhodeshian Ridgeback.

As a dog owner, I know how hard it is to confine your dog to a kennel while you go away for business or pleasure. I have a dog friendly home with a doggy door and a fenced in back yard. I will only accept one family's dogs at a time, so if you have multiple dogs, I will accept them with open arms, but there will never be two dogs from separate families staying here at the same time. The only dogs that may be here are foster dogs if I choose so in the future. But I assure you, I will let you know prior to your pup's stay.

If your furniture is dog friendly, mine is too. I will customize each stay specific to your dogs needs so that your dog doesn't have any restrictions or allowances they are not accustomed to. I provide additional services such as training, baths, walking, etc. If they have a special need, feel free to let me know and we can work it out.

In my profile I mentioned that I could be out of the house over 4 hours in one day. I did this to be safe. I work from home and typically prefer to stay home with a dog than go out, but things happen and I do have some weekly requirements that would keep me out of the house on average two to three hours.

I hope to hear from you soon. Feel free to contact me with any questions!

Brian is an awesome dog sitter and person all around. I know my dog can get really anxious when I am away but Brian didn't really have any complaints. Saturn was able to roam the house and yard and that is awesome. So glad I found a good sitter to watch him for the day.

brian did a grate job very pleased with his service will use him again. he took great care of both my boston terriers mike
Had to go on a 5 day trip and could not bring out dog with us. She has had anxiety issues in boarding before and Brian made her feel right at home. He was very conscious of making sure she got great attention. Nightly updates on our dog, as well as a few photos, were really great. Definitely recommend him to anyone!

Brian was an excellent host - he welcomed our active puppy Zoe and immediately made her feel at home. To make sure that she was comfortable and happy while staying at his home, Brian asked all about Zoe's routines and habits. He was flexible with pickup and drop off times and sent us regular updates. We will definitely book future vacations with Brian!
