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travels to homes across Anne Arundel and Howard County, picking up canines or popping by to replace food, water, and outdated copies of Dog Fancy while owners are away.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.

A.P.A.W. Veterinary Hospital and Wellness Center has been privately owned since 1998, when Drs. Patricia Peynado-Boyce and Lizel Salmon took the reins. Their three-pronged approach to animal health—compassion, innovation, and education—promotes a warm and well-informed venue for furry companions.

To exceed the demands of the credo's three facets, the staff invests in highly customized care. Many of their tools are typically seen only at specialty practices, such as endoscopy gear and spider-flavored lollipops for cooperative ferrets. Though their emphasis on preventive care can help stave off many illnesses, their hospitalization services remain at the ready: the team issues daily progress reports to owners and oversees patients kept onsite with late-night through early-morning monitoring. Heated kennels, outdoor play areas, and sunlit cat-only perches decorate their daycare and boarding space. The facility is located less than three miles from both the 495 Capitol Beltway and Baltimore-Washington Parkway.

Jonathan Bohbot was raised by a dog—or at least he likes to tell people that. The owner of Silver City K9, he says that his parents' german shepherd was partially responsible for his upbringing. His early rapport with the canine species helped him blossom into a true dog lover. Today, he's a certified dog trainer, and he guides his clients' pups in learning basic behavior skills, as well as reversing bad behaviors, such as overt aggression and raiding the fridge for chocolate. Jonathan also welcomes overnight charges into his own home, up to six at a time to maintain a small-pack atmosphere. Together, he and his charges go on hikes and scamper around the backyard.

The shelves at MOM's Organic Market teem with certified-organic groceries and produce free of chemicals, pesticides, and fertilizers. Fill a cart or 10-gallon hat with lunch fixings such as roasted turkey slices from Applegate Farms and Imagine low-sodium chicken broth. GT's Kombucha Gingerade joins assorted Chobani yogurts to create power-packed breakfasts, and Vitacoco coconut water soothes parched straws with electrolytes. Grocery carts may also be filled with a variety of gourmet cheeses, gluten-free food, sustainably farmed seafood, and local and organic dairy and meat products. The storefront, built with renewable materials, fume-fighting low-VOC paint, and energy-efficient skylights with LED bulbs, mirrors its eco-friendly offerings. Additionally, customers may bring old electronics to MOM's for recycling during February, before walking past two charging stations outside the market charging green vehicles such as electric cars and certified-organic mechanical bulls.
