Hello, my name is Rachel! I'm 22 years old and a student at Agnes Scott College. I grew up with dogs, and have always loved having them around. Right now, I have two amazing dogs, an english setter named Maggie and a jack russell named Dippy. I know how it feels to leave your dog with someone while you go on vacation, and I know exactly how I would want my dogs to be treated while I'm gone. This makes me an exceptional pet sitter. I worked at an animal shelter for four years and a vet tech for one. I considered being a vet when I was younger, and have done a few observations in vet offices. My uncle is a vet, and is always willing to take my calls. I am extremely responsible, and have pet and house sat for many of the faculty members at my school. I'm excited to be able to spend some time with your dogs; it's something I miss when I'm here on campus! Message me if you have any further questions, and I can give you references.

I've grown up with dogs my whole life. I can't imagine living without them. I like the idea of pet sitting because it allows me to spend time with dogs while living in a dog-free dorm.
I don't have any breed preferences. I would prefer to know if your dog has any quirks; if it doesn't like to have its food bowl touched while eating, if it bites when you do something, etc. This will not deter me by any means, but I'd like to know!
I have a very reliable volvo that I am more than willing to transport dogs with in the case of an emergency. I also have a family member that is a vet so if I have any small questions (not enough to go to the vet) I call him to ask for advice.
I am very comfortable. I'm the one in the household that administers the medicine, so I've been doing it for a long time.
In addition to pet sitting, I've also house sat several times. I have no problem doing any other tasks you need done.
As much time as possible or as much as you'd like. I love to play with dogs and go on big walks with them. In addition, if you would like someone to be in the house in the evenings, as a college student I am very flexible with my schedule.
