My name is Rachel Cook. I was born and raised in NYC and NJ, respectively. However, I have spent most of my days working, schooling, and playing in New York City since I was a child. I graduated on the Dean’s List from St. John’s University, Peter J. Tobin College of Business. I have many passions and talents which include running my own small business, doing art (primarily painting and crafting), playing basketball, traveling the world, learning, and eating (I am a major foodie). Outside of work, I exercise, sleep (a lot), try my hardest to eat clean and hang out with dogs. I think I have more dog (animal) friends than human friends at this point.
Dogs are my favorite domestic animal and always have been. I grew up wanting my own dog and to this very day, I still yearn for one because I only have cats. Fortunately, I have had the chance to pet sit and house sit for several family and friends many times throughout the years. I love surrounding myself with animals, mainly dogs, as often as I can. Since I have met and gotten to know countless types of dogs, I have become comfortable and confident in handling dogs of all sizes and breeds.
I understand the love you have for your pet and that it’s one of the most amazing and authentic relationships in your life! Every time I think of dogs or my experiences with them it’s a reminder that they really are man’s best friend. They are so genuine, smart and therapeutic for us all. Needless to say, I am so ecstatic to be apart of the RuffCity team and cannot wait to spend some quality time with your best (doggie) friend!
