Rachel is simply amazing! Sammy loved her, and I did too. She is a truly helpful and kind person. You and your dog will be blessed to have Rachel working for you. Thanks so much, Rachel!

Rachel’s passion for animals is evident in the care she gives them. She understands the needs of individual animals, as evidenced by her care of my dogs. She set my mind at ease with her quick notes and snapshots. Highly recommend this lady ???

Rachel greeted Deuce right away and he wagged his tail almost off his body. She walked Deuce and she said he didn't pull and he was a good boy.

I enjoyed meeting Rachel and getting to know her better. I was a little concerned about her walking my big Pit bull, because she is very petite, but she had no problems. I look forward to Rachel next visit. I highly recommend Rachel.

I'll <3 your dog while you're away.

I've been in love with dogs my entire life. I grew up learning everything I could about them: reading books about breed histories, dog training and psychology, working at the local vet's office, and spending lots of time with friends' dogs. I gained experience caring for pet and stray dogs while working as a veterinary assistant in high school. Caring for strays taught me how to make friends with dogs with difficult pasts and a ...

What Rachel would like to know about your dog

I'd love to get to know your dog. Please share anything you think might help me to do that, including their personality and background, fears, favorite activities, and any medical issues or dietary restrictions. The more information I have about them, the better I can care for them.

If you'd like me to walk your dog in your neighborhood, please let me know of any hazards I need to be aware of, such as mean or habitually loose dogs, neighbors who don't like animals, unsafe areas, etc.

When Rachel watches your pet

During a dog walk, I will come to your home and walk with your dog around your own neighborhood, or we can get in my car and drive to a nearby park so your dog can explore. I usually walk dogs one at a time, so I can give each one my full attention, but if you have multiple dogs who enjoy walking together, we can do that (up to 5 dogs.) I can pick your dog(s) up from you and return them to you, or I can let myself in while you're out. I can also feed your dog before I leave. In case of bad weather, walks can be pushed back to a later time with no penalty, or fulfilled as a drop-in visit.

During a drop-in visit, I will let myself into your home while you're away and perform whatever tasks are needed to care for your pets. All pets will be given food, prepared according to your instructions, with fresh water. Pets who need medication or minor medical treatment will receive it. Specific activities during a drop-in visit can vary, but always include a chance to go to the bathroom, play, and receive physical affection. Dogs may go for a walk, get snuggles on the sofa, and/or be let out into the yard to play tug, chase, or relax in the sun, depending on their energy level and personality. Cats will have their litter boxes cleaned, and may play and/or get their head and belly rubbed, if they enjoy that. Small animals will have their cage cleaned and be allowed to freeroam in a safe space under close supervision. I'll also bring mail or packages inside, if requested, or change lights and blinds around the house at different times of the day, to make it look lived-in. While I'm in your home, I will always respect your privacy, and I take care to leave your home in the same condition it was when I arrived.

Regardless of what service you choose, you will receive a status update with photos to let you know how your babies are doing after each walk or visit.
