We had the good fortune of connecting with Brandi Majerle and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brandi, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
My goal is to bring happiness and smiles to as many people as possible! With everything that’s going on in the world, it’s easy to get bogged down in the stress of life. Through sharing my pack of pups…the PBJ Pack, my mission is to give people a reason to smile, to laugh and to forget about their worries for a few minutes! With social media, I have been able to reach people all around the world…and through images and videos of my pups, we have brought joy and happiness to so many!Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My art is creating photographs and videos of my pups, writing their stories and sharing them with the world. This has grown from just a casual hobby into a small business. We (the PBJ Pack) now have a premium membership community, have published several photo books, and offer many products in our on-line shop including calendars, greeting cards, puzzles, shirts, collars and more!
In addition, I am able to use my platform to share the knowledge that I have built over the last 20 years of being a Dog Mom. I write and publish articles for my blog on dog health, wellness and training to help other dog parents with challenges they may be facing. This has included helping a dog parent transition their pup to a more natural diet, or what to do when their pup is diagnosed with a heart murmur. If it is a road I’ve been down, I want to share my learnings in hopes that it makes someone else’s journey easier.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We would load them up in our Jeep and take them on a PBJ Pack Adventure…somewhere out in nature! There are SO many options…from Sedona to Flagstaff to Prescott to Payson…it’s all unique and amazing! Being out in nature, taking in the beauty, breathing in the clean air and listening to the sounds of nature…there is nothing else like it! (And, we’d be able to share our adventures virtually with all of our PBJ Pack Adventure Squad members!!)Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My husband, Pete, has always been my number one cheerleader! He’s the first one to tell me that I can do it! No matter how “out there” my ideas may seem, he never doubts my ability to make it happen…and he’ll be right there along with me making it a reality! My second shoutout goes to Andrew of Destination Dog Training! He taught me all about dog behavior and how to communicate with my dogs. Thanks to him, I have been able to build strong bonds and relationships with my pups, which has led to us being able to accomplish so much together!
