I would highly recommend Barbara to anyone needing pet care or other services. Her love for animals shines through. She went above and beyond to make my 6-month old puppy feel at home. We feel very fortunate to have found you. Thank you for being so good to our girl. She will be so excited to see you again.

Hello! I just wanted to write a review. If there is a better way to send or a certain site I can post to, please let me know! I cannot thank Barbara enough for taking such great care of my boys! My puppy, Tonka, took to her right-away and absolutely loves his walks with her! My cat, Jax, loves when she visits as she always takes great care of him and gives him lots of treats! She is patient, kind and sends me video updates which is a huge bonus! She is always reliable and responsive for scheduling. She has made my pet care needs a breeze! Thank you, Barbara. You are a trusted and reputable pet care-taker that I would recommend to anyone!

We want to thank you for taking such great care of our dogs. You exceeded our expectations and will definitely refer you to family and friends. Tucker and Jerzey loved the attention you gave them. We will contact you the next time we go out of town.

Barbara, thank you so much from Jim and I. You are so amazingly thoughtful. We truly appreciate it and we would never have anyone else take care of Rocky other than you. He is amazing, he looks amazing, and you are amazing. Thank you.

Barbara, you were amazing with Gigi. She took right to you like she had known you forever. You went beyond what we expected. The pictures, videos, even the extra toys you bought her. Let's not forget trying to get her to try a new food. I have and will continue to recommend you to anyone that needs your service. You truly are the best. Thank you so much.

Wanting the best for my pets I was so fortunate to find Barbara at THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME. Barbara showed me so much compassion for animals when I first met her and provided that same compassion and caring attitude when I entrusted her with looking after my pets when I was away from home. Barbara gave me the peace of mind I needed and provided the superb care and attention I was looking for when I decided to use her as my pet sitter and will definitely be using her in the future whether I need her for a day or for a long-term occasion and highly recommend her to anyone who needs that same peace of mind when looking for a competent and caring pet sitter.

I highly recommend Barbara Brand for pet-sitting services. She has cat-sit for our two fur babies before and she gave them the utmost care while we were away. She also sent us photos and videos of them playing during her visits which we greatly appreciated. Our cats are normally slow to warm up to strangers, but our kitties took to her exceptionally fast. Overall, I felt that our kitties were in safe hands and that put us at ease while we enjoyed our vacation. If you would like a reliable and friendly pet-sitter, then look no further! Barbara is the best person for the job.

I am happy to recommend Barbara Brand’s Pet Sitting Services (There’s No Place Like Home). I have had the pleasure and the luck of having Barbara visit our dogs, Buster and Opie, and bearded dragon, Adele, for many years. I have used her services for dog walking, short stays, and overnights. My dogs love seeing her, and she has always gone above and beyond when taking care of our pets and our home while we've been away. During our travels, Barbara checked in with occasional update text messages and pictures. They all looked happy as could be.
I cannot recommend Barbara enough and would be happy to be contacted as a reference. She is a person who one can rely on to be responsible, consistent, dependable, and most of all loving and kind to every person and pet in her path.

When Barbara lived in Maryland, she often took care of my boy Hendrix! She always did a fantastic job taking care of him! From the moment you meet her, you will immediately be able to tell how passionate about animals she is. She also frequently sent me really cute pics of him while away and I was really appreciative to be able to see on a regular basis how happy and well he was doing!! 5 star recommendation!!!!!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Combine flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl; stir with spatula until combined. Transfer mixture to a work surface and work it with your hands until mixture starts to come together. Add 1 tsp of water at a time (only if needed) to help make the dough workable, but don't add too much as it should be dry and stiff. Roll the dough to a thickness of 1/2 inch. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces and transfer to a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven until dog treats are golden brown and crunchy, about 40 minutes. Let cool before serving to your dog.

Place tuna, water, and egg in a food processor and blend. Add flour to food processor and continue to mix until thoroughly blended. Place dough onto a floured surface and use rolling pin to flatten. The thickness should be about 1.8" or approximately the height of 2 quarters. Using a knife, cookie cutter or other item, cut dough into small shapes or pieces. Place cut pieces of dough on a lined cookie sheet with enough spacing between each to allow room to "puff". Bake for 15 minutes or until the treats are puffy and golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool. Place in airtight container to keep fresh. Treats should stay fresh for about 10-14 days.
Meet and greets are highly recommended with children and current pets prior to adopting or fostering.
