About Rachel

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Lola (my lovable canine companion) and I would love to make our home and services available to any any dog owners in need of some help. I grew-up with dogs and have extensive experience with dog sitting and cat sitting and have boarded a variety of breeds, both large and small, and ages. I also have experience with rescue dogs and Lola is a rescue dog herself.

I know that time apart can be stressful for both the pet and owner and my goal is to ensure that your dog enjoys their stay. I will maintain any schedules or preferences that you have and make sure that your dog gets extra love and attention while you are apart.

My apartment is not large but it is dog-friendly and I have a steady supply of toys and treats. My dog is a high-energy dog, so there will be several outtings throughout the day. I work 4-5 hours a day and take Lola on at least 2 short walks (15 min), one in the morning and one in evening, and one long walk (30-40 min) a day. Several times a week we go to the dog park (the one near Hudson Trail) and once in a while we go hiking. I do prefer to crate the dogs when I am not there but I make sure that they are not in there for more than 5 hours and dog-crating is negotiable.

One of the best things about choosing Happy Paws Boarding is Lola. She loves meeting and playing with new dogs/puppies but is also really good with older dogs. I have boarded several dogs who do not like other dogs and she did great with them as well, always knowing when to give them space and when they did not want to play. While your dog stays here, he or she will never be alone and might even leave with a new doggie best-friend.

She's wonderful with my dog! Rachel has a lovely medium sized dog so my puppy gets to play his heart out! She lives in the vicinity of three dog parks so the pups get lots of fresh air. Very caring and attentive, believer in positive reinforcement.

Rachel is a great person and fantastic with animals. She has often minded my dog when I've been out of town, and he always comes back happy and healthy. She's really easy going, but makes sure the animals are well taken care of. Lots of trips to the dog park! Her dog Lola is the sweetest dog on the planet, and so happy to meet every single dog. She's super playful, but Rachel has such good rapport with her Lola knows when it's time to be calm. Your dog will be safe, healthy and happy with Rachel.

Great sitter!
Rachel is the best with my dog Sai! He absolutely loves going to her place for a stay! He loves to play with her dog Lola and he always comes home exhausted! (Thank goodness) Last time we were there he cried when we left because he loves it so much! 10/10 will definitely book again!

Rachel was an awesome host! she kept me updated with Athena and was very accommodating!
Rachel was fantastic with Mabel (my six month old hyperactive puppy)! She let Mabel into her home, gave her time to sniff it out and get used to it, and then introduced her dog to Mabel. They got along great and had a ton of fun play time! Rachel was always super easy to get in touch with...always responded within a few minutes! I definitely plan to have Rachel sit Mabel again!!

Rachel did an excellent job taking care of my fur baby. She was flexible, friendly and quick to respond. I would use her again!
Rachel was absolutely awesome! She let me know what activities they did that day and if there was anything I should be aware of with my new puppy. She also sent picture and video updates so I could have some piece of mind while I was gone. My dog always comes home tired and happy, and I know she really enjoys Rachel's dog as well! So very happy I found her, and you will be too!

Blondie was there for the day but she had a good day and seemed very content when we picked her up. Rachel did a good job and we will be using her again.
