Rachel was/is great. She is responsible, took the time for a meet and greet, responded to all my concerns and questions and sent daily photos. My dog Trixie loved her and the long walks. After 3 nights, Rachel left my house just as clean and organized as when I left and watered my outside plants. She even took out her kitchen trash and put in a new trash bag. Impressive! I will use her ...

Rachel took great care of our dog Obi while we were away on a trip. She stayed for a long weekend with him and kept us up to date with plenty of photos. It gave us peace of mind and allowed us to enjoy our trip knowing he was in such good hands. Would definitely recommend Rachel!!

Violinist and Dog Lover!

I've loved walking and caring for dogs since I was a little girl, often borrowing neighbor's dogs to take them on walks when I was growing up. After college, I worked as a dog-walker for some time while building my career as a professional violinist. Some of my best memories from those years are being out all day with a couple of happy dogs!

What Rachel would like to know about your dog

I'd love to know your dog's likes and dislikes as well as favorite treats and activities. I do have two cats, one of which is excellent with dogs and the other who is shy at first, so I do ask that your dog be cat-friendly if he/she will be staying with us. Also, I can only accept dogs under 30 lbs for stays at my house.

When Rachel watches your pet

I live close to several parks and the wonderful Wissahickon which has great trails for hiking. If your dog is ok with others dogs and going off leash, there's a great dog park in the Blue Bell neighborhood. Otherwise, I'm happy spending time on long walks, hikes, and runs around Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill.
