Rachel was fantastic at taking care of our shiba inu for over a week! Our dog has some characteristic idiosyncrasies that are typical for a shiba and Rachel was really able to accommodate these. She sent several photos and updates on how our dog was doing and really went the extra mile with walking and even jogging him! I would recommend Rachel without hesitation!

When I picked my dog up from Rachel's apartment I got the feeling that he didn't want to come home! Rachel gave Sam a weekend full of physical activity and attention, and he loved it. Not only was he physically satisfied after the stay, but he was emotionally calm, which is an important requirement for our neurotic little pup. 5 stars. Will use again.

Dogs on Stay-Cation!

I'm a lifelong pet owner and animal lover who really enjoys caring for cats and dogs. I've been exposed to all types of dog breeds, ages, and sizes, from pugs to pit bulls! I also have extensive experience administering medication to both canines and felines.

I'm very active and will make sure your pooch gets plenty of long walks. I live just two blocks from Prospect Park, very convenient to take furry friends for a ...

What Rachel would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences...I have experience with small and large dogs and many different types of breeds. My only requirement is that the dog is cat friendly. :)

When Rachel watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Around the lovely neighborhood of South Park Slope, and in Prospect Park, of course!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
In the living area on the floor. I would prefer to have the dog's own bed for the time they stay with me, but a bed can be provided if necessary.

Time I'll spend with your dog
As much as possible! At least two walks per day on weekdays, and at least three on weekends.

Time I'll spend with your dog
At least three walks with playtime afterwards...the minimum amount of time would be 1-2 hours on a workday. On a weekend day, I would aim to spend 2-3 hours for good quality time!

Extra house-sitting services
Yes of course! I am also very good at caring for plants :)
