• “Rachel boarded and walked my dog, Ferdinand, when I was traveling for several weeks for work this summer. It was a tremendous relief to know that Ferdinand was in loving, caring hands. I knew he was having a great time playing with Rachel's playful hound, Smitty and getting regular trips to the dog parks (including his favorite, Fort Funston!). Moreover, Rachel knew that I have been struggling to get Ferdinand, a very food-motivated senior dog, to a healthy weight and she was instrumental in helping me shape a diet and exercise plan for healthy weight loss. I came back home to a leaner dog who had a lot more energy and loves long walks again. Now Ferdinand has the same energy level as when I adopted him over four years ago.”

  • “Rachel is as joyful when she is around dogs as dogs are when they are around her. She loves creating opportunities for educational and enriching play for dog-clients and her own dogs and she knows how to tailor her interactions to the individual. From the senior rescue dog with a troubled past to the high-strung, reactive young dog, Rachel knows how to create an environment that allows each dog to be the happiest version of himself.”

  • “Rachel absolutely saved the day for my dog Honey. I am a very protective dog owner with a shy rescue, and I needed a place to board her for over a week. I am relatively new to San Francisco, and I was so nervous about finding the right kind of place to leave my dog for such an extended period of time! Rachel was such a pro- clearly a huge dog lover. When I saw how empathetic she was towards Honey, all with a great sense of humor, I felt 100% comfortable. Honey warmed up to her (and her dog Smitty) almost instantly, which is saying a lot for my pup. Granted, the cheese helped, but Rachel was patient and knew how to get a shy dog to open up. I will definitely be using Rachel again for boarding!”

  • “Rachel is a lovely, responsible, entertaining person to both dogs and people alike. She and my dog, Percy, have a wonderful rapport and he is always overjoyed to see her. I think of her first for dog walks and boarding and trust her implicitly.”

  • “When Rachel takes care of our kitties when we are away I feel like they won't be happy to see us again when we return, because they get such great attention and love that it's like leaving them with a doting auntie. Rachel's love and passion for animals is wonderful and I know that not only will my pets get the feeding, litter changing and water freshing they need, but that Rachel stays and spends quality time with the kitties and gets to know them and appreciate them, plays with them and cuddles them. She gets to know their personalities and sends us cute photos of the cats which is so thoughtful. She is enthusiastic, has a huge heart and pays close attention to who our animals are and what they need. She's always my first choice when it comes to hiring a cat sitter.”
