About Rasheeda

1 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to look over my profile.

Currently, I work at a veterinary clinic in Brooklyn, and I love it! I am currently applying to postbacc programs to complete the prereqs before I apply to veterinary school. I have also volunteered at animal shelters and worked as a kennel assistant at an animal hospital in Brooklyn, NY. Further, I have a cat at home that I have rescued from the mean streets of NYC. My cat, Sammy, is a special-needs cat so, very unfortunately, I cannot welcome more pets into my home for any amount of time. Because I live with my sister, though, Sammy has extra care for those occasions when I must be away for any length of time.

In terms of ability to care for pets, I am very able. I am a soccer-player (and avid viewer) and love to workout. I would be happy to jog with your dog(s)! I can be very active with your pet(s), if desired. I can also care for special-needs pets that are recovering from surgery and/or have chronic physical conditions that require attention. Further, I am very open (and would probably be happy) to care for exotic, legal pets. I am looking for experience with a range of animals, so my preferences are very liberal.

Please contact me if you think I would be a great companion and caretaker for your pet(s)! Questions, requests, stories, etc. are very welcome!

Rasheeda is fantastic! I have two French Bulldogs, one that is 10.5 years old and the other one is 4 years old and has fear based aggression from his previous life before we adopted him. I was worried about going away and leaving him in someone else's hands until I met Rasheeda. From the minute Rasheeda walked in the door with her balanced energy and calm demeanor, both of my dogs were smitten with her. She was patient with me also, being an over-worrisome dog owner. She learned how to walk the fearful one without any problems. Also, a small health issue arose while we were away and because of Rasheeda's experience working at a vet clinic and studying to be a vet herself, the issue was dealt with immediately and responsibly. Rasheeda took care of our home and pups so well. We are very grateful to have found her. She's the best!

Rasheeda is awesome. Great with the dogs, responsible and thoughtful. I am planning on having her watch my girls as much as she is available. The fact that she works in vets office is a double plus since my girls are seniors and may have situations arise suddenly. I feel very grateful to have found Rasheeda!

Rasheeda was more than wonderful with our dog, who immediately felt drawn to her. She clearly loves working with and taking care of animals, and having her come over was one of the best decisions we've made for our dog. We will definitely ask Rasheeda to come back again!

Rasheeda is amazing! Very organized and caring from start to finish. I felt completely comfortable leaving my 10-year-old "baby" in her care and will certainly be booking her again.
Rasheeda stayed with my 2 dogs for days - and did a great job! One of my dogs can be a handful - but she did really well with him. Rasheeda sent me regular updates and photos and overall was very responsible & responsive. I would highly recommend her!

Rasheeda was awesome! She booked with us on short notice, was super friendly, upbeat, very responsible about checking in. It was a great feeling to go away overnight and know our new puppy was in great hands.
I only have excellent things to say about my experience having Rasheeda stay at our apartment with my dog Izzy. Rasheeda was a detailed and attentive communicator from the very first email, and throughout Izzy's staycation, which made me feel at ease. She asked the right questions, followed through on special requests, and sent frequent updates. Furthermore, in seeing her interact with my dog I could tell she was caring, gentle, and kind. She took great care of Izzy and our apartment, and I look forward to hiring her again in the future.

Rasheeda took excellent care of my cat while I was out of town. She was super attentive and communicative to help me be at ease while I was away. She got along famously with Oscar, and now he constantly meows for her - not sure if I should be concerned. =)

I would highly recommend Rasheeda to anyone looking for a person that very clearly cares for animals and their wellbeing [as well as the owners too!].

Rasheeda was great! I have two cats, which she had no issues caring for. She's a cat owner herself, so I knew she was a natural!

One of my cats requires medication twice a day and is a scaredy-cat to begin with, so I was half-expecting it to be a struggle. But on the first visit, she was literally eating out of the palm of Rasheeda's hand!

Rasheeda is prompt, professional and communicative, and goes out of her way to make sure your pets are well cared for. I've already booked her for my next vacation!

Is this a good review?? Rasgeeda was amazing, I can't say enough good things. I have a 125lbs South African Boerboel who is very territorial and quite aggressive. She took the time to meet Bella, listened (which is huge) to how to deal with her, basically ignoring her, and before even looking after her met her 3 times. Bella hadn't every had a dog sitter look after her and Rasheeda went above and beyond to make the experience easy and stress free. I told her she probably wouldn't get Bella out for a walk. It was a big of enough deal to have her in the apt. But she tired and tried again and got her out every day we were away. When we got back she came over and Bella was sooo happy to see her. She is a natural with dogs and I would have her look after Bella when ever needed.
