About Rachel

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Time away from home can be rough. Believe me, I know how tough it is to leave pets behind. Having a reliable, pet loving sitter in place can make it a little bit easier. I hope I can be that person for you! My name is Rachel and I have 10+ years working with pets, both my own and others. In that time, I have been lucky enough to call three great dogs my co-pilots, and have had many fosters as well. I am a positive reinforcement type trainer, looking to become a full time pet care professional. Right now, I work with emotionally disturbed youth and so have a great sense of humor, an ability to go with the flow and also am able to put my foot down and say enough. I currently have a nine year old border collie mix dog who is just the best. He and I have learned lots together. He does agility and has taken lots of other classes as well. He has awesome manners and is the most polite dog you will ever meet. I know everyone loves their pets, but mine is something special. As are yours. I worked for six years with an animal shelter, first as a dog walker, then to a trainer, kennel attendant and finally as a veterinary assistant. I helped with surgical recoveries and administered meds. I am not certified in pet CPR/First Aid, but have been in the past. I have seen many types of illness, and so usually know when to call the vet and when to wait it out. I given shots and insulin, medicated cats and dogs. I also had the opportunity to work with a professional groomer and apprenticed under her. I am great with puppy cuts and many breed specific haircuts, and will advise if a trim is the right way to go. I have two sets of clippers, brushes and scissors, plus a grooming harness. I will communicate with you as often or little as you like while you are away. Whatever your routine, I will be happy to follow it. I am pretty flexible and can provide structure for your pets. I truly love pets and want to help them have as little stress as possible.
