Top Dog, Boston
Rachel McCann is a lifelong resident of Boston with a diverse background.
Since she was old enough to walk Rachel was hard at work in her family’s cranberry bogs weeding, planting, harvesting and running the “Pick Your Own Blueberries” stand. Rachel studied Marine Science and graduated with a liberal arts degree.
Following a six year corporate career managing payroll, accounts payable and other critical operations for a national Elder Care company, Rachel brought her business operations expertise to Decadent Dog in February 2005 and quickly became the company’s top walker and sitter. Dogs, cats and humans alike agree that Auntie Rachel is their favorite! Perhaps Rachel’s favorite thing about being a professional pet care provider is being able to do so alongside Floyd Pepper, her 3 year old Bernedoodle.
When she isn’t walking dogs, you can usually find her underwater. Rachel is a Certified Rescue Diver and has made 200+ dives around the globe, from Antarctica to Tasmania.
