About Rachel

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey there! My name is Rachel and I'd love to walk / pet sit / play with / your pet!

I currently work as a freelance Assistant Cameraman in film production, working on commercials, TV Shows, and various films. Due to this, I have a flexible schedule with a lot of free time in which I love to take care of animals. I have always been incredibly compassionate towards animals and first fell in love with pet care when I volunteered at my first shelter at age 8, cleaning out the cages.

I currently pet sit and dog walk for families around Brooklyn, foster cats, rescue dogs and cats off the streets, and raise my beloved Labrador / Border Collie [almost] 4 year old rescue, Max, whom I have had for two years now!

Not only do I have years of experience as a pet sitter and dog walker, but I have a list of references to back it up!

As a walker, I can guarantee that each dog gets a walk appropriate to their needs. Some dogs need longer, high paced walks to relieve energy, while others need short or slower walks just to relieve themselves, and I pride myself on being flexible to offer whatever is best for the dog, at the request of the owner! I am willing to do solo or group walks as well and have experience handling dogs of all sizes and temperaments with ease.

With home visits, I guarantee lots of attention and care while I'm with your pets. Of course there will be lots of cuddles, pets and play time; however, I also have experience grooming, administering medicine, and with basic obedience dog training.

At my apartment I can guarantee a clean, safe and happy environment for your pet! We do have a dog and a cat here so any pet that stays over must be friendly towards other animals! But with three animal loving roommates, I can guarantee there is never a shortage of love and attention towards any animal that comes through our door! A benefit with my location is the proximity to the Prospect Park! Stays at my apartment can include walks to the park, including the dog beach and all the fields!
