About Rachel:

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!

Why I love dog sitting
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.

Meet my pets
I have a fairly large one bedroom on the 2nd floor of a brownstone. Tons of windows with natural light and a little deck for nicer days.

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

My experience administering medication
In most cases, yes. Let's just discuss beforehand.

What Rachel needs to know about your dog

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.

When your dog stays in Rachel's home

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

Time I'll spend with your dog
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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.
