Rachel took the needed time to understand us and Fidget’s needs.

Wow! I was blown away by Rachel's care for our old(!!!) cat, Maverick. We were doing the best we could caring for him but Rachel had so many clever/ DIY ideas for improving his quality of life!

Rachel pet sat for us in our home over the past weekend. She did a wonderful job with our very well-behaved but neurotic dog Penny and our shy cat Fiona. She took Penny on adventures on all 3 days and sent us lots of pictures and updates. It was reassuring and great to see all the fun Penny was having. Fiona, our cat, takes a while to warm up to strangers but by the second ...

I like 'em old and grumpy!

Specializing in special needs and senior dogs! Certified in Pet First Aid and CPR for your peace of mind.

Whatever makes your pup happy makes me happy. We'll go for treks if they're adventurous, or just have quiet companiontime if they're more low-key. Drop-in visits - never limited to 30 minutes - include adventure, playtime, affection, consistent training reinforcement, and a promise of full and sparkling-clean water bowls.

My priorities are safety, comfort, companionship, and plenty of ...

What Rachel would like to know about your dog

I'll need to know your dog's vet info, medical conditions, and allergies; what makes them nervous and calm; their favorite treats, toys, and activities, and about 27 other questions we'll cover in an intro session. I have a soft spot for grey-muzzled mutts and rescues.

When Rachel watches your pet

Activities depend completely on your dog's regular schedule, abilities, day-to-day mood, and your specifications. While I love taking furry friends to the quiet corners of Ocean Beach, Stern Grove, or Land's End, we can have adventures and cozytime anywhere.
