Rachael has been taking care of my black lab and chihuahua for a year now. I depend on her and she always has my back when I need her to take care of my dogs. She treats them like they’re her own and that’s the best kind of care I could ask for. She is the definition of going above and beyond. She puts her heart into caring for animals. She is the ...

Rachael has been taking care of my dogs for several years now. She is so friendly and professional and truly cares about my dog, Lucy. Lucy truly adores Rachael and waits anxiously for my husband and I to go on vacation or out of town just so Rachael can take care of her! She also walks Lucy and keeps her fit as I work full time. Don’t know what I’d do without her ...

Rachael takes care of my chocolate lab and rotweiler when I’m working or on vacation. She treats them as her own and goes above and beyond to treat them with the utmost care and love. She always sends me photos of them by my request and gives me updates on how they’re doing. She also walks them for me taking them on hikes which my pups LOVE. I don’t trust anyone but ...

I’ll treat your dog as my own

I have a love for animals and would love to take care of yours while you are away. I am currently studying at the University of Connecticut to be a speech pathologist, along with working part-time at Mashamoquet Brook State Park. I am available most days and find myself to be rather flexible. I understand how much your dog means to you and I will make sure to give him/her the best care possible ...

What Rachael would like to know about your dog

How old is your dog and what are their physical abilities and restraints? What are their eating habits? Do they need any medicine and is there specific instructions on how to adminster it? Are there any other medical concerns or a medical history that I need to know about? What is their diet and food routine? How much physical activity would you like your dog to have while they are with me? In case I take them out for a hike, is your dog good with other dogs? When I stay overnight at your home, is your dog allowed on furniture?

When Rachael watches your pet

I live right near Mansfield Hollow which is a great spot for me to take dogs that I am caring for. Depending on each dog’s age and physical ability, we can go on a hike or a walk around the premises. The Airline Trail is another go-to for me. I have lots of dog toys ready for your dog when they arrive! Now that it’s summer time, I love getting any dog outside to enjoy the weather. When I come to do a pop in visit or care for your dog over night, I won’t be absent in playing with your dog and giving them my full attention. Depending on your breed of dog, their ability and breed, I’d love to get them outside exercising by playing fetch with a frisbee or ball.
