About Rachel

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a family of dog lovers. We have two dogs and would love to add more to join in the fun. We live on a farm with lots of nearby trails so there are great opportunities for exercise, swimming and doggy fun.

We believe that to be happy a dog needs plenty of exercise and positive reinforcement of good behaviours. Our dogs are a constant source of love and joy for us. We'd love to host your dog in our home and for him/her to be one of our family while you're away.

As we have two dogs already, pups who stay over with us must be well socialized, enjoy being around other dogs and fully immunized. We look forward to hearing from you!

**Please note that we do not board dogs on a raw diet**

Our doodle dog Scooter had a great vacation too while his parents were away on a cruise. He got to play with 4 or 5 other dogs, two of which belonged to Rachel. We had an introduction meeting at Rachel's and Scooter felt right at home. A lovely acreage they have with lots of room to play. Rachel also sent pictures of their walks and playing in the snow. I was afraid he might not want to come home when we went to pick him up but he was happy to see us. A good experience for him and us, not having to worry about him sulking while we were away. He got to stay active. Thanks Rachel
This was Starr's first visit at Rachel's.
We had daily updates on Starr's walks, playtime with other dogs, either by photo's or video's, with a little message attached. Rachel keep us well informed on Starr's daily activities.

The day I picked up Starr at Rachel's, Starr was excited to see me, but seemed reluctant to leave, Starr had a new friend in Sadie, which was another dog that Rachel was looking after. Rachel told me they became the best of friends during her stay.

It was very comforting to know that Starr was well looked after, and was enjoying her little mini vacation, playing with all the other dogs.
We have another trip booked, so we will be re-booking Rachel's services again.

Thank you Rachel for looking after Starr, we are looking forward to our next getaway.

We would like to highly recommend Rachel and her family who looked after Duke for us over the Holiday s. We really appreciated the daily updates that included pictures showing us how well Duke was doing. We would recommend Rachel to all our friends and will continue to send Duke to stay with Rachel both on overnight and daycare visits in the future.
Rachel was very friendly, thorough in ensuring it was going to be a good fit, and responded quickly with any information needed.

I really appreciated receiving regular updates and some fabulous photos while our dogs were staying with Rachel.

I will contact Rachel again.

Hamish had a great time while we were on vacation! The family was great with him, and made sure he got a lot of exercise, which he needs. We were happy that he was living similarly to how he lives when with us. Rachel sent regular pictures and updates, and it was so nice to see that Hamish was having fun and getting outside - made us feel a little less guilty for leaving him behind! Thanks for everything!
We could not have found a better place for our one year old duck toller to stay for a few days. Rachel and her family treated him as one of the family and it is very obvious she has a passion and love for dogs. She gave him lots of walks on the dike with her other dogs and had a great fenced yard that was secure and safe. Once inside, he became part of the family. This was our first time leaving our one year old dog with anyone and we would most definitely use her services again. We liked that she asked us questions and what our rules, behaviour etc of our dog was so she could be consistent with ours.
Higgins' stay with Rachel was superb. Long walks, lots of play and much affection equals a happy - and exhausted - pup! Highly recommend Rachel to anyone. Higgins loves her so I do too! Thank you Rachel!
Rachel is a kind sitter that continually kept us up to date of our dog with quick notes and cute pictures. She is in a great area with opportunities for walks in a beautiful setting. Thank you again!
The pictures were great to receive and Riley looked like he had a great time. In fact,he has been in a "down" mood since he came back home. This indicates he had a great vacation and misses you and his new friends.
If there were 10 stars, they would get every one! Our 7 month old 80lb Bernese Mtn puppy loved it here and they took the best care of him!
Not only were they extremely helpful and accommodating, they sent pictures and notes daily while we were away.
It is so nice to know that our puppy has a home away from home where he probably has more fun than at home! The best experience!
It's great to come back from vacation to a happy, tired, relaxed dog, rather than a doggy bundle of stress and nerves. Rachel and family have a great setup - a lovely big fenced yard; nice, friendly dogs of their own; experience and knowledge and trustworthiness. They were flexible and accommodating with my drop-off and pick-up times. I highly recommend Rachel, and will happily take my dog back to her next time we go away.
Rachel was fantastic! Our dog was well cared for by someone who very obviously loves dogs.v
We had acquired our little Hyzer after we had made non refundable reservations to Vegas. We were not sure what to do because he would only be 3 months old at the time of our vacation. Fortunately we came across Dog Vacay and chose Rachel and she did a fantastic job taking care of Hyzer. We received daily updates with pictures, which we looked forward to each day.
We would highly recommend Rachel for your dog's next vacation!
Rachel and her family were wonderful! Sapa was so happy, I don't think she wanted to come home. She had Ella, Bertie and Molly to play with...such wonderful, gentle dogs. They have such a lovely property for the dogs to play and run. Rachel is also located right near the river, Sapa loved going swimming. I will definitely be booking Sapa to stay with Rachel again. It makes a holiday away stress free when you know your family member is being taken such good care of. It was such a treat receiving the pictures of Sapa enjoying herself.
Thank you Rachel
Rachel was awesome looking after our 1 year old pup, "Charlie." I would highly recommend Rachel to anyone for her to lovingly care for their pup.

Rachel provided us with daily updates and photos which greatly put us at ease. Rachel also had a doggie birthday party for Charlie as he turned 1 year old while in her care.

I really hope that Rachel is available when my husband and I have go away again. I am sure Charlie would be happy to see Rachel and her family once again.
We had Rachel look after our dog Brooklyn for 10 days. Rachel was AMAZING!!! Brookie was spoilt beyond measure, she enjoyed long walks along the river and we received photos throughout our trip that made us smile and know we made the right decision.

Thanks a million Rachel!!

From the moment we met Rachel, we knew our diabetic Lab Maddie would be in good hands. Rachel and her family welcomed Maddie in with open arms. Her dogs Ella, Bertie and Molly are beautiful, social and well behaved.

As for location, the home and farm are a perfect place for a dog to find all the space she needs to run and play under the watchful eye of Rachel. We received updates and photos of our old girl, obviously enjoying herself with her new pals.

When we arrived early to pick up Maddie, she was in no hurry to leave. We won't hesitate to book Rachel again and recommend Rachel to all of our friends!
My first meeting with Rachel and her family was very comforting. They are a warm, dog-loving family and I was instantly put to ease with their energy.
I originally booked only two nights but my flight was cancelled and my trip ended up being 3 nights instead. Rachel was very understanding and accommodating. She sent regular pictures and videos during my dog's stay which showed my dog easily part of their pack. Regular walks/runs on the dyke and cuddles on the sofa along with just being on the farm and being part of the 'family'. I would definitely use Rachel (and when I say 'Rachel' I really mean the whole family) again.
On top of all that goodness, she's donating the money to a charity she has chosen. :) Can't get better than that :) My dog was loved and I like knowing that I'm helping others by paying her.
Thanks again Rachel and family :)
