Our Team: Team Members



My husband, Alton, and I were inspired by our lovable rescue, King, to ensure other pet owners could have the same confidence we look for when it comes to pet care providers. From birth, there has always been a dog in the house, so the connection is just organic. Even though I am a part-time dog walker, I am certainly a full-time dog lover. In addition to meeting wonderful dogs, one of my favorite parts about this job, is the amazing people it has led me to meet. When I'm not spoiling your furbaby, I enjoy traveling and spending time with loved ones.

Hello! I am a pet owner and animal lover. I have always had pets growing up as a child, and there has always been a special place in my heart for animals. I just love taking care of them! We currently have a golden retriever/ German shepherd mix that we rescued from New Mexico. I enjoy meeting different kinds of animals and getting to know their personalities.

Hi there!  My name is Carey, and I have always had dogs and cats of my own from as far back as I can remember. Pets are an integral part of my family; my dogs and cats are my kids!! I have had all sorts of dogs from Gordon Setters, Border Collies, Hound dogs, Lab mixes and Rottweilers too! My husband and I recently adopted two cats…the cats certainly keep my husband & I on our toes as they are quite mischievous!!
I have been working in the animal profession for almost my entire career! I begin working at an animal hospital when I was a teenager and have remained at the same practice for over 25 years. I worked in almost every role from a vet assistant to a technician and now a manager. Taking care of pets is what I’ve always done and what makes my heart happy - I can’t imagine ever doing anything different! I’m so happy to be a part of the be BwB team and look forward to meeting you & your furry kids!

Hi, my name is Sasha. I am currently a Student at Virginia Tech studying Marketing Management. Since I was a little girl, I had always begged my parents for them to get our family a dog, but they never allowed us to. Even though I didn't grow up in a house with pets ourselves, I knew I loved taking care of dogs. I started dog-sitting for multiple families in my community about 8 years ago, and I have loved all of the relationships I have developed over the years. I find myself caring deeply for my client's dogs as if they are my own, and I love spending every minute I can playing with my client's dog as it brings me so much joy! I look forward to continuing caring for more dogs throughout the community, and I can't wait to meet your furbabies! 



Client Care Representative

Behind many smooth-sailing businesses, you’ll find me, their virtual assistant and secret sauce. With more than 20 years of experience in the customer service and finance industries, I have mastered the art of multitasking, project management, and time management – the three things that prevent most business owners from realizing their full potential. My administration company, A Happy Monday, provides BwB with a grade-A administration experience. Less busy work for them means more time to focus on providing you and your wonderful furbabies with top-notch care.

Hiring Advisor 

After dedicating decades to adjudicating for the government, I'm excited to use my skills to help ensure that all Barking with the Bradley's team members are an extension of what the brand embodies. I've been around dogs for most of my life, but my passion for them has grown over time. Now that I'm retired, I hope to spend more time volunteering at the Chesapeake Animal Services and spoiling my grandpuppies.

Hello! I am an avid animal lover. I have had dogs my whole life, and I started walking and sitting for friends and neighbors when I was still in elementary school and worked professionally as a dog walker and sitter from April of 2016 until August of 2019. After completing my master’s degree in public history, I realized I no longer wanted to be tied to a desk and decided to return to my passion: working with animals! I strive to make sure every pet I visit feels safe and loved and I will take care of them just as if they were my own. Whether your dog weighs 10 pounds or 110 pounds, they are all good girls and boys, and they will receive the attention and affection they deserve!

After buying our first puppy together (King), Akira and I met a lot of our friends at dog parks and puppy play dates. During this time, we would assist friends with dog sitting and walking. That's when the love and passion grew, taking care of other people's dogs and showering them with love. I have always had a passion for dogs and grew up with them as a child. I love working with different breeds and getting to know each one and learning more about them- “it’s like making a new friend with four paws!” I hope to ensure that every pet is left healthy and happy, so their owner doesn’t have to worry. They can know that their pet is being cared for when they are gone. Other than working with dogs, I have a strong interest in weightlifting and spending time with family.

My name is Janet, and I am so happy to be part of the BwB team!  I have a lifetime of experience being around animals, and understand how stressful it can be when life commitments separate you from your pet.  I am experienced in caring for pets with dietary restrictions, medical conditions, anxiety, and special needs.  My family and I raised or cared for a variety of dog breeds ranging from toy breeds, like Pomeranians, to large breeds, like Coonhounds, and even an Akita.

Hi! I am excited to be a part of the BwB team and care for your animal. I am a customer who loved and appreciated what the BwB team was doing and wanted the opportunity to share the same level of care I experienced for your furry family member. I grew up with animals and have always loved dogs.



Walker & Sitter 

Hello! I’m so excited to help take care of your fur-baby! I’ve always had dogs growing up and started helping my friends and neighbors care for their own since I was 12 years old. I also have experience working with hamsters, Guinea pigs, cats, and horses. I’ve worked with many different dog breeds of all shapes and sizes. So whether you have a chihuahua, Great Dane, or something in between, they’ll be in great hands with me.

Hi! I am a pet lover and poodle owner. As someone who has always had dogs, I am very experienced in caring and loving pets. For some background, I am a creative advertiser working on my master's degree in graphic design.
