“A Dog is a Girls Best Friend!!”

Hello, my name is Brianna! I'm 22 years old. I grew up in a small town near Philadelphia, PA with my adorable Beagle named Cassie. Aside from caring for my family's dog, I began dog sitting for family and friends when I was about 13. Over the years I've watched a wide variety of dogs—and I've loved caring for and spending time with each one of them. I look forward to getting out and active with your dog, and giving your pup as much joy and puppy-love as they give me!
