Rachael was very sweet and caring towards my German shepherd. During her house stay she had to care for her elderly relative so she had to leave from time to time during the day... but from the surveillance cameras indicated she made it up by going out for runs and long walks with Jenny during late night hours and sometimes even after midnight and super early in the morning! I am very moved, and am ...

Come SIT With Me! (⋆ʾ ꆚ ʿ⋆)۶⁾⁾⿻

Greetings! My name is Rachael and I'm 21 years old. I've been an animal lover and helped took care of animals since I was a baby, and so is my family- my grandma has owned up to 8 dogs, all the way from small to large breeds! I've always dreamed of caring for pets, and I get the greatest satisfaction while taking my daily walks through dog parks. Watching animals bonding with humans and others ...

What Rachael would like to know about your dog

There are no specific preferences, but I would like to know the gender, age, breed, special concerns (such as allergies, anxiety/aggression issues) and personalities so it'll be easier for me to schedule an activity for your best friend!

The more an owner can provide, the more comfortable I feel! :)
Please communicate the following:
-Do they get along with other dogs, strangers and children?

-What is your pets usual routine during the day?


-What kinds of medications does your dog take and how are they administered?


-Does your pet have health issues?


-Do they have issues with resource guarding ?


-Do they chew things apart?


-Are they allowed on the furniture and bed?


-Do they use a crate?


-Are there specific things that can trigger anxiety and/or accidents?


-Do they bark at noises/strangers?


-Do they exhibit nuisance barking?


-Are they potty trained?


-Do they have separation anxiety? If so, what behaviours do they exhibit?


- Do your pet(s) have issues with leash chewing/biting?

-Do your pet(s) have problems with picking up (and/or) eating food/ trash off the road?

-In general, especially during a walk, do your pet(s) have awareness of dangers (example: cars)? Do they know to sit and wait on the side of the road by the traffic light? Or will they bolt at cars (distractions) regardless?

-Has your pet ever bitten a person, pet, or animal?


-Has your pet ever been bitten or attacked by another pet?


-Has your pet ever been boarded/ petsitted before?

home)? Calm, Happy/Excited, Timid/Shy, Fearful, or Aggressive?

-How does the pet behave interacting or playing with a person? Calm, Happy/Excited, Timid/Shy, Fearful, or Aggressive?


-Does your dog, or has your dog, ever had allergies?


-Do you use training aids, such as muzzles, choke collars, e-collars (remote or bark), or citronella collars? If so, you must provide written care instructions. If training aids are not always needed, please leave them at home.

When Rachael watches your pet

Activities vary depending on the needs and personality of the dog- For outgoing socialites we'll enjoy a nice get together at dog parks, occasionally having off leash runs and fetch/obstacle activities (optional)

For the introverts your best friend will be taken to a peaceful walk in parks, and individual exploration over the city.

If allowed, the dog can even go on hikes in national parks, become a part time model for a photoshoot and take beautiful pictures as a keepsake of my service!
