Founder & Dog Advocate

A native of dog friendly Boise, Idaho, Brandy has always been a huge fan of dogs of all kinds. After college she moved to the southeast United States to pursue a career in college sports. With such a crazy schedule, having a dog was out of the question so within 4 months of switching careers she welcomed a golden retriever puppy, Scout, into her home.

After moving to Salt Lake City in November 2017, Brandy began her quest of finding dog friendly spots within the metro area. Realizing that there was no reliable source for that type of information, she launched @dogfriendlyslc on Instagram in October of 2018.

In June of 2019, Brandy officially turned DogFriendlySLC into a website to make it easier for both locals and visitors to find information on where to take their four-legged best friend in Salt Lake City.

Madisan adopted her dog Maple in 2019 and realized she had been missing out on one of the great joys of life: dog companionship. Maple is a Lab/Great Pyrenees who loves cross-country skiing, hiking and going to bed unreasonably early. Madisan loves running, hiking and pretty much anything outdoors. She grew up in Flaming Gorge, Utah (a dog-friendly haven) and graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in journalism. Madisan, her partner and Maple love exploring Utah and bringing the best places, tips and tricks to you all. 

Star of the show
Despite being often confused for an Irish Setter, Scout is a three-year-old AKC Golden Retriever from Idaho Pure Goldens. He loves playing frisbee, swimming, interrupting Brandy’s workday, and stealing things that don’t belong to him. He’s not a fan of posing for Instagram photos.
