When jogging down a nearby wooded trail or driving past a sprawling local park, it's not uncommon to spot Bree—a seasoned pet specialist and sitter certified by the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters—with a band of boisterous puppies scampering along behind her. Though the bulk of her services has to do with dog walking, the animal enthusiast pet-sits for creatures of all shapes and sizes, from kittens to iguanas. Bree travels to homes across Anne Arundel and Howard County, picking up canines or popping by to replace food, water, and outdated copies of Dog Fancy while owners are away. The expert caregiver dotes on all pets under her watch with fond attention, generously doling out belly rubs and playfully tossing sticks to keep pets’ spirits high.
