About Rachel

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your dogs will ALWAYS feel welcome in our home! My husband and I are dog lovers as we have two fur children of our own! Small, medium, large, or extra large we have plenty of love and room for them to come, sit, stay and play!! You don't have to worry about your fur babies!

Your dog will be our number one priority, and we look forward to spending time with him or her! We welcome dogs of any size, and have a lot of experience with puppies and bigger dogs. My husband and I love puppies and our dogs really get along with puppies or dogs around their age (1-2 years old).

We know, it’s quite difficult to leave your pup behind to their own vacay. Rest assured that you will receive periodic updates and pictures throughout the day so you won’t have to spend time worrying about your pup, but rather enjoy your time away! We are flexible with pick-up or drop off times per your request. We love taking walks so your dog will definitely be spoiled with an evening or every other evening walk around our neighborhood.

About our Dogs: Sperry and Blade are both rescue dogs we adopted as little puppies from Stray Rescue St.Louis. Sperry was found living under an abandon porch in the summer of 2012. After being nursed back to help from dehydration, starvation, and parvovirus we rescued her from Stray and brought her into our home. Blade was born in a foster home in 2013 to a mother dog living on the streets who was rescued and able to give her puppies a home to be born into. He was born with 6 other puppies in his litter. Both our dogs are very sweet and loving and love having puppy play dates and sleepovers! Both weigh around 50lbs. They will welcome your dogs into their home for a fun day/evening of running, playing, and maybe a few licks too!

We have a huge fenced in backyard so your pup will be in a safe and closed environment- so no need to worry about their safety! We have a spare bedroom and huge couch for them to choose where they want to sleep or lay around during the day. All housebroken dogs may sleep wherever they want- we prefer puppies to be kept in a kennel at night to ensure their safety and avoid accidents! (We have kennels available if you don't have one already).

To determine whether your pup is a right fit and to ensure him/her the best and most comfortable experience, please request a Meet-n-Greet through my page.

Thanks and we look forward to welcoming your fur baby into our home!

Rachel, Mike, Sperry, & Blade!

Definitely will be taking Kipper back. I needed care for him on Fridays, because I work all day long and he was getting too stir crazy. I met her on Thursday and then dropped him off Friday. Rache was awesome. She sent me photo updates, and by the Thursday and then dropped him off Friday. Rache was awesome. She sent me photo updates, and by the time Kipper was picked up he was exhausted! It was amazing. He has never been so calm and happy. I highly recommend Rachel to anyone who needs care for their furbaby!

Rachel is the perfect dog sitter. She loves dogs, and they love her. Ellie and Murphy had a great time during their 8 day visit with Rachel and her family, both her husband and son, as well as, her two lovely dogs. I highly recommend her!
I highly recommend Rachel for anyone needing a safe and caring place for their pet to stay! My dog Roxy spent 13 nights with Rachel and her family and I am very please with the entire experience. Roxy was immediately welcomed into their home as and I am very please with the entire experience. Roxy was immediately welcomed into their home as part of the family and loved spending time with her new buddies, Sperry & Blade. Rachel was quick to respond to emails/texts and sent picture updates while I was on vacation. Honestly, this is the perfect place for your pet to stay! Roxy and I look forward to booking more stays in the future!
