Description:

I'm a 31 year old professional living alone in the South End with my 10 year old Yorkie, Milo. I am a huge dog lover and often can't help myself from petting and saying hi to dogs on the street. I've spent plenty of time caring for my parent's dog, Sammie, and my sister's dog, Monster, in addition to my own.

If your dog stays with me, he'll be welcome to make my home his own. He'll get frequent walks (particularly on weekends and evenings) and lots of belly or ear rubs. I live very close to a number of parks in the South End, so your pup will have plenty of fresh air. I also have a fairly large one bedroom apartment with plenty of room for smaller dogs to run around.

Your dog is welcome to sleep where ever comfortable - in a doggie bed, my bed or elsewhere. Ultimately, I want my place to feel like your dog's home away from home!

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

We didn't have many pets growing up, so I really became a dog lover in college after spending a great deal of time with friends who had amazing pups. Since then, I adopted my own dog and my parents and sister followed suit. I like to think that dogs can sense how much I love them and gravitate toward me more than most.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

Since I have my own dog, the most important thing is that your pup is dog friendly! I live in an apartment building and try to be mindful of neighbors. If your pup is likely to make a great deal of noise, it may not be the best fit.

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

Absolutely. I own a car and can use it in case of emergency.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

In most cases, yes. Let's just discuss beforehand.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

Admittedly, I work most weekdays but am generally home by 530 each day. I'm fully available evenings and weekends and plan to spend plenty of time with your pup during that time.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

I don't, but I'm just steps from numerous parks in the South End!

Where will my dog sleep?

Wherever he is most comfortable - in my bed, in his own bed or on the couch. Wherever he's happy!

We came from NI to Boston for our daughter's wedding, requested Rachel to pick up and drop off our dog Sam, she arrived both on time. Sam seemed in his normal spirit when he was dropped off. We will have Rachel to watch Sam again if we go to Boston in the future.
Good care and friendly. It is a good place for dogs.
Rachel did a fantastic job watching our beagle Colby this past weekend. Colby is very shy and sometimes needs to be carried outside for walks and definitely needs quiet space. Rachel did a great job making Colby feel comfortable and safe while looking for nice spots to walk Colby. Rachel sent pictures of Colby over the weekend and responded quickly to all of my inquiries about how Colby was doing. Her dog, Milo, is also very sweet! I would definitely use Rachel again.

My pup was very happy with Rachel and Milo. Rachel was communicative and sent a photo a day or so into our vacation. She couldn't have been nicer.

This was my first experience using Rover.com, and Rachel could not have been more perfect to book my first stay with. I was going away for a night on New Years and waited till a few days before to find my dog Mia a place to stay. I reached out to Rachel and she was extremely quick in responding to me and answering my questions. My dog Mia is a young, 15lb mixed pup, who had been a shelter dog for most of her young life, so, there was no way I was going to board her at a shelter-like facility. Rachel was completely understanding of my concerns and I knew Mia would be comfortable with her. She has a little dog as well, who was very sweet. Rachel was soo flexible in regards to time I needed to drop Mia off and even assured me there were no worries at all when I ended up being a lot later in picking Mia up then I had originally planned.

My 13.5 year old mixed breed pointer/pit, Mika, stayed with Milo and Rachel for 4 days and nights. She was welcomed in with open arms and Rachel was flexible in the timing when I could bring Mika over and pick her up. While on my trip, Rachel sent me a couple of pictures of Mika with some reassuring messages to let me know Mika was settling in well into her household. Rachel also was fine with making Mika's special diet and giving her so much attention she and Milo started feeling a little jealous over it! My only concern with this setting is the steep stairways, given that Mika is a bit less sturdy on her feet. However, Rachel figured this out and was careful when bringing Mika up and down. I was glad for Rachel's care of Mika and will definitely book Mika with Rachel again, when I go out of town. (Collapse)

I had to head out of town Saturday night, so I reached out on Friday and Rachel was able to take Bentley for an overnight. She was very accomodating (I ran late dropping him off), and when we arrived Bentley ran right into her house! I loved that I also was emailed a pic of Bentley hanging out with Milo! I will absolutely contact Rachel next time Bentley needs a sitter!

Testimonials

Jenny P. October 5
I have known Rachel for over 25 years. I shared a home with her and her dog in the past and saw first hand how responsible and devoted she is to the needs of animals. She is very trustworthy and reliable and would be a great choice for anyone looking for a sitter!
Sarah O. October 11
I have known Rachel for years and have not known her to be anything other than reliable, caring and responsible when it comes to people and pups alike. As a bonus, she's also incredibly patient with dogs and their inevitable quirks.
