About Rachel

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My fiance Steve and I would absolutely love to help you and your pup out! We have been doing DogVacay for about a year and a half now and absolutely love it. We are die-hard dog lovers and can't wait to get a cuddly one of our own (or two or three..).

Steve and I both work 9-5ish during the week and our availability is completely open on the weekends and we would love to spend some quality time entertaining your dog however they please. We have 2 parks across the street from our building and are not far from the national mall for some running around and outside time. Both of us love to run, so if your dog does too, we would be happy to take them on a jog with us!

We have both had dogs in the past and know we would give you peace of mind for your time away and we promise your dog will want to come back!

Once again, Rachel and Steve were AMAZING! They are quickly becoming our go-to for reliability and care. Theo loves being there with them and is always exhausted upon returning home, which means he had a blast!
Rachel and her boyfriend are so nice and are true dog lovers. My Labradoodle has stayed with them several times and it's always a great experience. They send lots of pictures and are really flexible with pickup/drop off. They also live in a great apartment building. Best dog sitters!
Rachel is always so great and easy to work with. Theo is well taken care of and loved so we are happy to keep having him stay with her!
Rachel and Steve are awesome! It was Josie's second stay with them, and like last time, they sent lots of picture updates and Josie was totally pooped when she came home!
The host did a great job and I'd definitely book again!
Rachel and Steve are fantastic! Theo is always happy when he is with them. They are HIGHLY recommended :)
So easy to book with- super flexible and friendly. Already booked my next stay with Rachel! 10/10 would recommend!
Rachel and Steve were great! So accommodating and easy to work with. Theo definitely enjoyed his stay and we appreciated that they let Theo live in their home like it was his own. Theo would love to see more of Rachel and Steve in the future and we hope they will have him back soon!
Seems that Ledger was well cared for by Rachel and Steve. They were very responsive in setting up the vacay and sent photos and updates during his stay. Ledger would be happy to be a repeat houseguest.
Our boy Roscoe got better care with Rachel than he does at home -- I almost feel sorry for him that he had to come back to us. Super responsive, she sent great updates and we have total confidence in her. Thanks again!
Rachel was AWESOME! Niko had the best time. He rarely eats much when we travel. He ate everyday while he was there. He got walks and love and play dates. We got pictures from Rachel while we were away to show us how the little guy was doing. Niko will be back!
Rachel & Steve were wonderful hosts! They are clearly total dog lovers and sent us fun updates while we were gone. Josie came home happy and pooped. We would definitely leave Josie with them again!
As always Ella had a great time with Rachel.
Rachel was absolutely wonderful! She sent update text messages and photos of our dog while we were out of town which helped us relax as this was our first use of DogVacay. Our dog has some anxiety and Rachel made her feel at ease immediately. Highly recommend!
Rachel and Steve helped me in a pinch. Totally last minute and totally cool. Ella loves staying. Great sitter!
Rachel was awesome. Sent me updates daily and Ella looked like she loved being there in my photo updates. Try her out. You won't be disappointed.
Rachel was incredibly accommodating to drop off and pick up times, which alleviated all my travel / puppy stress. She is a HUGE dog lover, and was obviously very excited to have a pup in the house. her apartment is easy to get to, super clean and perfect for a pup. Maggie was very happy and obviously well taken care of and loved.
Rachel and her boyfriend were fantastic dogsitters. They were flexible on drop-off and pick-up times and sent lots of updates. I would absolutely contact them again!
Rachel was wonderful with our little pup Leela (5 year whippet mix). I would recommend her to anyone and will definitely seek her out next time Leela needs a DogVacay.
Rachel and her boyfriend were excellent dog sitters and I will likely be using them again in the future. They were very welcoming and friendly - and I could tell that they genuinely cared for Lido and enjoyed spending time with him. Their apartment is brand new, very clean and spacious (for a medium-sized dog). When I picked up Lido after a few days he was happy and well-exercised. I highly recommend using Rachel if you're looking for a top-notch dog sitter.
