about ME

I'M here for you

Pets do best when they can stay in their own home, where they are comfortable and relaxed and can keep to their regularly scheduled program. This makes your time away much less stressful for both you and your pets. 


As a bonus, wouldn't it be great if your dog could receive training while you're on vacation? Well, now it's possible! I offer live-in dog sitting, which includes training, while you're away.

I am a fear-free certified pet sitter, a canine enrichment technician, and also an R+ concept-based dog trainer. Providing all those services and home care all in one is my specialty and my passion. 


So when you need help on multiple fronts, Dog Lady Bri - PDT will be there! Have dogs? Will travel!

The values I stand by:

Each and every dog will have their individual needs met mentally, emotionally, and physically. 

Your dogs, your home, and you, will be treated with the utmost respect and compassion. 

I believe in kindness toward all beings and pledge to Do No Harm:  no pain, no force, no fear. 

Hourly Dog Sitting

This is our hourly-rate service for shorter period dog sitting as needed.

what to expect

It can be difficult to find someone you trust to live in your home with your dogs when you're not there. Especially if your dog has certain struggles such as separation anxiety, reactivity, or other particular behaviors.

This is where your search ends! I stay in your home with your dogs and work with them on any issues while you relax and enjoy a stress-free vacation, knowing your dogs and your home are in good hands.

hear it from our clients

"I first met Brienne in spring of 2022 when I was looking for a Fear Free trainer who specialized in Separation Anxiety.  My dog was 2 1/2 then and we had been to numerous training classes. Brienne introduced me to the concept of using games to make training fun for both me and my dog Georgia while building her confidence.  We still play the very first box game she taught us, the progress is amazing!  Brienne has continued to be an amazing resource and support for us, most recently staying with Georgia while I was away.  She not only did her own training and games with Georgia, she worked on our current SA training plans, providing me with advice afterwards based on her observations.  I 100% trust Brienne with my girl and my home, I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for the services she provides.  I have learned so much from her and my Georgia loves her!"
