Rachel is fantastic! She is great with animals and takes pride in what she does. We never had to wonder how our fur children were doing because photos, texts, and short videos were sent. Our animals were calm when we arrived home and could tell they were well watched over. Thank you Rachel for putting our minds at ease for the whole 2 weeks we were gone. We will definitely be needing you in the ...

Sandy Paw Pet Sitting is wonderful! Rachel has gone above and beyond in her care for our pets. The best testament to the quality of care she provides is that our animals are always relaxed and calm upon our return home. She leaves our house in better shape than when we left and always communicates about our pets well being with quick pics and texts. Our dog requires medication twice a day and is a ...

  • Verified Background Check

Experienced and Professional Sitter

I've been successfully running Sandy Paw Pet Sitting for over a year in Leelanau County, MI. I offer my clients experienced and professional care for their beloved pets, utilizing my years of experience as a veterinary assistant and as a mother to my many farm animals in Empire MI. The knowledge that I gained while working in animal rescue has also built a knowledge base necessary when caring for client's animals. From dog walking, to ...

What Rachel would like to know about your dog

During my first meeting with a client and their pet I discuss specific temperament issues, stresses, and likes and dislikes of each pet. I prefer to know vaccine history, veterinarian contact information, an emergency contact in the case they are not reachable, what type of food they are eating and their feeding schedule. All of these things help the animal feel more at home, assist myself in care, and give the client peace of mind that every base is covered.

When Rachel watches your pet

When I stay overnight in a client's home, the care of their pet/s as well as their home are my top priority. During our first meeting I like to discuss specific needs for each pet I am caring for. What do they enjoy? Where do they like to take walks? These are all things that vary from client to client and dog to cat! Animals are always more comfortable in their own home when a sitter takes the time to find out what they prefer. I work with clients to try to maintain as much of a similar routine as possible for their furkids while they are out of town.
