About Bren-Lin Farms Pet SittingIn the News

See below for an excerpt from The Harvard Press article “Business Brief: Bren-Lin Farm pet sitting,” published on November 14, 2008.

The fictional Dr. Doolittle may outdo Brenda Baer and Judy Bourgeois of Bren-Lin Farm Pet Sitting when it comes to literally talking to the animals, but not by much. Baer and Bourgeois are local favorites of assorted furry, feathered, and scaly customers, as well as their two-legged owners.

Baer has provided pet-care services in Harvard and surrounding towns since 2004. “We specialize in whatever the client needs,” she said, emphasizing the broad scope of her services.

Baer’s regular customers include dogs that need midday walks and cats that require regular insulin shots. She provides short- to long-term boarding and in-home care for family pets, including dogs, cats, birds, and small rodents. Baer joked that Bourgeois rounds out the team’s pet-care capabilities nicely since, despite her love for animals, she can’t quite muster Bourgeois’ affection for snakes and reptiles.

Baer said she arranges for preliminary “meet and greets,” so that she’s not unfamiliar to animals that may already be stressed by their owners’ absences. She provides detailed notes on her charges’ behavior, and keeps journals for recurring customers. Baer is available to accompany pets to vet appointments. She has also supported families during geographic moves by boarding their pets until the human members are in place in their new location, and then handling the paperwork and legwork required to ship their pets, both domestically and abroad.

Bren-Lin Farm customers are effusive in their praise for the team’s care of their pets. Nicole Connolly of Fairbank Street uses Baer’s in-home pet-sitting for her dog.

“She always comes ahead of time to re-introduce herself to Shiloh,” Connolly said. “We’ve been just thrilled with the care she’s provided. She’s very professional. Just as important, she has a lot of kindness for animals.”
