Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Professional full-time pet sitter, dog walker, and puppy/kitten socialization specialist wants to meet you and your animal family! I am very passionate about providing top quality care to my clients regardless of their behavioral or medical needs. I have several years of experience in the pet care and veterinary field working with mammals, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and fish. I even have a few insect friends! My focus, when caring for your pets, is creating a sense of security and overall calm until your return. I establish this by using techniques learned through the Fear Free Professional training program as well as Dr. Dunbars Behavior training academy. On top of that, I spend a lot of my personal time reading scientific articles and books related to the pet care field. These techniques have been field tested and have shown great results in most of my pet friends! I am a double certified veterinary assistant with a solid knowledge of animal triage to help clients determine if their pets need medical attention. I am accepting of all walks of life and encourage you to communicate anything you or your pet needs while they are in my care! There is an additional $5.00 fee if you are outside a 10 mile radius from the listed address due to travel costs. Including any needed dates will greatly help me determine if I am available to help you and your pets!

Pet Sitting

Rachel has been nothing but amazing. We feel very safe and comfortable knowing she is taking care of our cat while we are away. She is quick to respond and on more than one occasion, taken care of our cat on a very last minute basis. Thanks so much Rachel!!!

Rachel is amazing. She is so knowledgeable and has a way with animals. My neighbor and I call her "the dog whisperer." Rachel is a godsend. I was really concerned about leaving my 10 week old puppy and going to work. Rachel gives me peace of mind. My Marley is well taken care of. Plus she has helped me with training him so I don't have to have a trainer and sitter come separately. I don't know what I would do without Rachel. Our family loves her so much.

Rachel is truly our Fairy Dog Mother. Our pup, Max, is a rescue who is unsure around other dogs and can be slow to warm to people. We originally found her as a pet sitter for when we were on vacation and needed a trusted person to leave our dog with. She took extra time to meet our dog multiple times prior to actually watching him and allowed us to have a session in her home with her dogs to make sure he would be comfortable. We recently started having Rachel take our pup on Pack Walks with her dogs, and Max has made HUGE gains in being around other dogs. We are so thankful to have someone who cares about our dog and his well-being, takes extra time and care with him, and helps show him new experiences in ways that he is able to handle. She is professional, prompt, and always in contact. We can’t recommend her enough.

Rachel is absolutely amazing. She took extra time and care in building a relationship with my Walter, who has baggage and isn’t always responsive to new people. He grew to love her and that’s a big deal for my little boy. Rachel is just a blessing and I can’t recommend her enough. Thank you!!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is fairly competitive for the areas I work in. I am also fairly flexible when it come to my prices based on your pets needs.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Once we spoken via email, text, or over the phone we set up a meet and greet. This is when we get to know each other and determine if I am the right fit for you and your pets. If so, I will present you with my contract, veterinary release, key release, and photo release forms.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I started working as a dog daycare attendant working with up to 75 dogs at a time on my own. I then moved into the veterinary field where there was a high demand for pet sitters who were familiar with certain medical conditions. I fell in love with the work!
