My name is Cheryl Cannon and I am Professional Handler as well as a Briard breeder.  I have been in dogs for 40 years. One of my proudest wins this year was placing 2nd in the Working Group at Westminster Kennel Club this year with Champion “Odin” (BIS, BISS Am GCH, Can CH, FCI CH, Puerto Rican GCH, Latin American CH, Pan American CH A. Feiner Eros, CGC, TDI), a Leonberger. I’m writing this because I have known the Warrens for the last 30 years when they first started showing Briards in the United States.

Vicky and Jim are amazing dog kenneling professionals. Each dog that passes thru their door is treated like one of the family or as they call it part of their “pack”. I’ve had them watch my dogs and I am happy to say that the dogs loved their stay at Paws ‘N Play.

When they first started to look at the property that they are now in, they asked me what I thought because as a dog handler/breeder I might be able to give some insight on the property.  When I first viewed the place I had fallen in love and knew it was the “right one”.  37 acres is a lot of property, but they are growing each and every day.

The animals that stay here are well looked after, loved and cared for in a way that puts other “kennels” to shame. Every dog is actually a member of their family. They eat with them, sleep with them, and hang with them during the day and night.


I would highly recommend their facility as it’s not really a facility. It’s a Home away from home.


We arrived home safe and sound yesterday afternoon.  It was another long, long drive, but all went well so shouldn’t complain.  Patton rides like a champ, and we are so grateful to you for making our stay in Brandywine so easy.  We knew Patton was in good hands with you, and it was such a relief to not worry about him (too much) while he was with you.  You have a wonderful place for our four-legged children, and you can be proud of your care and concern for all the pets.  We know we will have a good place to leave Patton when we get a chance to return to Brandywine.

Again, Thank You, and good luck with all your furry friends

“Ms Vicky and the gang at Paws ‘N Play,

I want to again thank you for taking care of Spike while we were out-of-town.  I always feel so guilty when I have to “board” my Spike, but after visiting you beforehand this is the first time I didn’t feel guilty and I didn’t worry about him.  Spike apparently had a fun time!  He came home tired which means he played and played and didn’t stay cooped up in a kennel.

We will definitely let him come “play” with you all again.”

“If I were a dog I’d never want to leave.  Vicky and Jim used to take care of our Ginger and I would recommend them to anyone.”

“I love Paws n Play and so do the boys.  They are like family.  I have never met anyone like Jimmy and Vicky.  I feel extremely blessed to have them in our lives.  Thank you so much for everything.”
