About Rachael

Hello! Thank you for your interest in my services. I am an animal lover looking to help support myself through graduate school. I am in the Physical Therapy Program at CSULB. After I graduate I plan to become a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist so that I can also provide therapy to injured or disabled dogs and other animals. My animal experience includes pet sitting as well as volunteer work at shelters. For pet sitting, I have provided daily drop-in care, overnight care, including administration of oral medication. My shelter work includes dog walking and caring for shelter rabbits.

I have never had my own dog, but my family always had one until a few years ago. I did, however, have a rabbit that I raised on my own. He lived to be 14 years old, despite chronic health issues - so if there are any rabbit owners out there, I'm your girl! Due to my current living arrangements I am unable to take animals into my own home, but I am willing to do drop-in visits and overnight stays at your home if that is something that interests you.

I am a newcomer to DogVacay and just moved to the area from the Midwest the in May 2016. I live in Huntington Beach and attend school in Long Beach, so I can provide services in these areas. Feel free to message me for more information, I can provide references upon request.

We have a new puppy...a very large Irish Wolfhound puppy who is a bit of a kleptomaniac and will chew everything and anything. With an all day concert booked- we feared that he would eat all of the furniture while we were out. Rachel came in and saved the day!

Rachel was extremely responsive, professional and absolutely a pleasure to work with! She came by for the meet-and-greet with our boy Baxter and brought a notebook to record the important information.

The day of the concert she arrived on time and prepared. While we were gone I texted her a couple of times and she responded immediately. Upon our return she had quite the collection of "stuff" she had intercepted from Baxter!

We had a great time at the concert and were relieved to know our newest pup was in good hands. We are looking forward to using Rachel again!

Rachel is an amazing person!! She is so loving and I felt like I knew her when I met her for the first time. I would recommend her to anyone that needs a sitter. She spent the night with my little fur baby and did a wonderful job. Thank you Rachel for being so loving and Leo misses you!!!

Thank you

Because of Rachael we were able to get away for a whole day. She took great care of our fur family and even sent me a cute picture. We have already booked her for our next week long vacation and we will be stress free knowing they will be loved and cared for by Rachael.
