Hello, my name is Brittany. Pets have always played a huge role in my life and I find cultivating special bonds with animals to be so important. Growing up, we had a variety of animals in our house, including cats, dogs, fish, birds, and a hamster! I've had two Yorkie Terriers, a Great Pyrenees, Boxer, and a Pug; I love them all, big or small. I enjoy being outside, especially for long walks or runs. Thank you for this opportunity, and I can't wait to meet your special friend!

My love and passion for animals were inspired before I could speak: as a toddler, I would spend hours trying to communicate and play with Kasha, my aunt's 150 lb Akita. By the time I could walk and talk, family outings would regularly entail trips to nearby pet stores, shelters, adoption events, and of course- I stopped for every animal I passed along the way! Over the years, I've cared for hermit crabs, fish, hamsters, lizards, birds, cats, and canines. I've always had a profound appreciation and respect for the natural world as well as everything in it, but dogs have consistently held a special place in my life and in my heart. I had the opportunity to take home two of my own pups when I was about 6 years old: Britney, a Pekingese, and Charlie, a Shitzu. When I left for college, I lived on my own for about a year when I met and fell in love with Harley, a 90 lb German Aussie Golden mix. After independently rescuing and rehabilitating Harley, I worked extensively with a private trainer and was eventually able to get him service certified. Being such a hardcore animal kid, I took my responsibilities very seriously, and have continued to do so. Over the years, I've read dozens of books on dog training, discipline, and communication. I've also helped family and friends with dog sitting, training, walking, and other canine-related needs; this has allowed me to become comfortable working with various breeds- small, large, and everything in between! I can't wait to connect with and care for your furry family member :)

“"Be the person your dog thinks you are"- CJ Frick”

I LOVE DOGS!!! Mine are like family; I have always had big dogs (mostly pit bulls) but love all dogs. I've volunteered in animal rescue since 2009, fostering several success stories, most of which came to me with some type of disability. My boy Vito is one of those rescues; a deaf pit bull, we communicate using sign language and he's truly my best friend. I look forward to meeting your fur family, giving them all the love and care they deserve while you're away

The city also pays homage to this Danish author with a famous bust of the writer and a city park which is named after him. Living here, you and Fido will have a hard time forgetting that you're not in Denmark and are actually living in sunny California! Solvang looks like a painting of a Danish village!

Dog owners pawsitively love living in Solvang. There are 5 veterinarians right in town. Also keeping the doggos happy are 3 city parks, 2 hiking trails, and 3 pet shops.

Paula's Pancake House has been serving up delicious foods for over 100 years. The restaurant offers more than just pancakes. For your first-time visit, you gotta try Paula's Special — Danish pancakes topped with warm cinnamon apples, blueberries, or strawberries with whipped cream on top! After some breakfast, you and Fido can head to the Hans Christian Andersen Park, named after the famous Danish writer. The park has a castle arch entrance and huge oak trees for your pup to sniff out. It's a perfect place for an afternoon trip back in time and across the globe!

Is your dog too fancy for his collar? If your dog loves comfort food with a gourmet twist, then he'll adore living in the Pine Street neighborhood. Your first stop has to be Succulent Cafe, where your pup can get his fix of fine wines and charcuterie boards. You can also order the fanciest meatloaf sandwich you'll ever eat! If Fido doesn't fancy the finer things, then try The Big Bopper Drive-In. This drive-in is a little more greasy and a lot less fancy. You can try charbroiled burgers like the Solvang Special, or go for the classic fish and chips. If Fido's well-behaved, a fry or two from your plate can't hurt!
