Rachel is fantastic! I felt confident in her upon meeting her. She spent a long weekend at our house watching our dog. She sent me updates and pictures. Most importantly, I came home to very happy dog. She went above and beyond leaving our house tidy and laundry done. I would definitely use her again and recommend her.

Rachel did a great job being mellow with our skittish pup. The house was clean and everything in order. We would love to have her back next time!

Rachel takes excellent care of our kiddos. She has become an extended member of the family and our pups are always excited to see her. We get updates and photos during our trips and we return to a house that looks like it was never touched (other than the delicious quinoa she leaves for us!). We highly recommend Rachel...just don't take up her whole calendar...we'd be devastated.

Energetic dog lover in Capitol Hill

A dog lover all of my life, I have previously owned a Lab/Chow mix, an Australian Shepherd mix and a Beagle and have cared for them all from puppy to adult development. I often tell people I am the guest who wants more dog time than friend time. :)

I live in the Pike/Pine area of Capitol Hill which allows me to provide a walk through the city streets or a park stroll depending ...

What Rachel would like to know about your dog

Before I meet your pal, let's talk about the following:

1. Is your dog currently in training with you or a professional?
2. How does your dog behave socially with other dogs/puppies/people/kids?
3. Is your dog leash-dependent?
4. Do you prefer your dog to get exercise? If so, what kind?
5. Is your dog crate trained, or do they roam about their home freely?
6. Is your dog potty trained?
7. Does your dog have any dietary restrictions, allergies or medical issues?
8. Does your dog have any personality qualities or quirks I should be aware of? (nervousness, barking, leash resistance, puppy-nipping, etc.)
9. What is your favorite trait about your dog?

When Rachel watches your pet

Spending time with your dog is all about them. When your pal wants to play and it is safe to do so, we play. When your pal wants to nap, they nap. When your pal wants to talk, we talk. (And sometimes when they want to wrestle, we can do that too, if owner-approved.)

Living in Capitol Hill provides a number of quiet streets and parks where your friend and I can take safe walks or jogs any time! I am available to keep your pup on as loose or tight of a schedule as necessary.

No matter the circumstance, we will enjoy each other's company.
