Sit ‘N Stay is proud to serve the Burien, WA area for everything pet sitting related.

As a former Veterinary Technician and farm girl, I am well-versed in how to provide healthcare for animals on a casual or emergent basis. I’m also certified in CPR and First Aid and competent in administering medications and giving injections. From puppies to seniors and special needs, you can rest assured that I’m capable and prepared to handle whatever situation presents.

My husband and I have four dogs of our own that really keep us on our toes! We know how quick their health can change on a dime and were always prepared to adapt and pivot to their needs.  I pride myself on utilizing the most natural means available in caring for my fur-kids so they live a long happy, healthy life. As a Board Certfied Health Coach, I can help you optimize your pets life through an individualized dietary plan to aid in remedying obesity, allergies or chronic health problems!


My pets have ranged from horses to hamsters and everything in between.  I am in love with nature and can often be found hanging with our local crows during my walks or fostering relationships with other animals. (Keep an eye out around town and you’re likely to catch the crows flying with me!) I love every being and what their varying personalities have to offer. My innate inquisitive nature pertaining to animals helps me be the best surrogate pet parent I can to your fur, feathered, finned or scaled pet!  It’s all about keeping a balance between happy and healthy!

I look forward to meeting you and caring for your fur-children soon!

Hi, I’m Barry (AKA FUNcle Barry!)

Brittany and I have known each other since high school, been together over a decade and married over 3 years of that time. She and I have always planned on working towards a time when we could realize our dreams of caring for animals together.
I’ve always had dogs in my life and continuously felt a special bond with animals. I have been caring for all shapes and sizes of these unique beings during different stages in my life. Brittany and I share a kindred spirit where that is concerned.
Until recently, I was working in the tech field. I have worked at T-Mobile for 23 years as a Senior Network Engineer, while being active with Sit ‘N Stay part time. After COVID-19, it became clear to me that I was no longer suited for an office position and I was happiest while working with the animals alongside my wife.  Brittany and I finally get to make our dream a reality and I couldn’t be more thrilled!
Thank you for inviting us into your lives, to participate in the health and well-being of your pets. I promise to love all of them as they were one of my own.
