About Britt

Interested in getting to know the face behind the blog? I’m Britt, a 30-something wife and pet mom. I work from home, running my own business as a digital/social media marketer, freelance writer and blogger.

I started blogging as a profession with Alternatively Speaking, an ‘alternative living and outdoor travel’ blog. Over time, I noticed that I was posting more and more content related to my true loves, our ‘pack’, and more importantly – people were engaging on it and enjoying it. Rather than flooding my original blog with content that doesn’t quite fit its focus, I decided that it was time to branch out and create a secondary blog focused solely on all things pet-related. With that, Shed Happens was born.

I live in Windsor/Essex, Ontario, Canada with my husband John, our 2 dogs (Daviana and Indiana) and our 2 cats (Pippen and Jinx). When I’m not working/blogging, you can find me teaching music with the Kingsville Essex Associated Band, Canada’s longest continuously running marching band, rehearsing and performing with our local community band and No Strings Attached, a saxophone quartet, or camping/hiking with my husband and our pups.

We hope you enjoy what we’re sure will become your favourite pet-friendly corner of the world wide web!
