About Rachel

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a special host because I love dogs,unfortunately my mom is allergic so can't have my own. Having visitors is ok. Also both my aunts have dogs so I am good around dogs and have been my whole life. My neighbors also have dogs and i watch them on occasion. Im an animal lover at heart so this would be perfect for me.
If you have any questions about anything don't hesitate to ask I'll try to answer the best I can to accommodate you and your pup.

rachel was a nice person. my dog took to her immediately. we will use her in future. dana n.
Rachel is always my first choice for Molly's pet sitter. She is always very responsive and flexible in setting up arrangements. Molly loves Rachel and her whole family and always starts barking and whining as soon as we get close to Rachel's house!
Great family! Great service, as usual!
Rachel and her family are wonderful. They are our go-to people for all of our pet sitting needs. Thank you so much!
As usual, fantastic service! Jasper always seems completely happy and at home when I come to pick him up. Thank you so much!
Rachel and her family made sure to give my dog the loving family environment that I wanted when I chose to board him. He made new (people) friends and came home to me exhausted and happy. Definitely going to use Rachel again. Thanks!
Rachel does a great job with Sadie and Haley! They love her, and Rachel is nice enough to send photos of the pups. It makes going away less stressful!
Fantastic hosts. Truffles enjoys her time with Rachel and family. She is very well taken care off. You get regular updates with pics.
This was the first time that we used Rachel. Our dog Daisy is a people person and we feel she received lots of love and attention by Rachel and her family. We will definitely have Daisy return the next time we go out of town.
Rachel and her family did a great job. I was nervous at the beginning to leave Buddy in unfamiliar to him place. However, everything turned out very well. I can highly recommend Rachel, if you have dog that not to get used to stay at home by herself and like to have family around.
Wonderful Host!! The pictures say it all that my dog had a super awesome time!!
Rachel is by far the best pup sitter out there!
Our dog's home away from home! Fantastic!
It was great as always.
As far as I know, everything was fine. Our dog is healthy, only needs to be fed and walked. Not sure how much Rachel was actually involved in his care. Though I met her and emailed her, I did not see her at drop-off or pick-up. I did meet her brother and mother. He mostly requires a family environment with plenty of attention and company and that appears to be what he got, so all is well. Thanks Rachel and family!
Jasper always looks happy and at ease with this wonderful family. Rachel and her family take great care of our dog and we are so grateful to have this service! Jasper will be back.
Rachel was wonderful, and took such good care of my babies while I was away! My dog loved her, and my kitties were so calm and unstressed when I got home.
It is wonderful to have a trusted family to care for our dog when we are away! As always, we had a great experience. Jasper will be back. :)
Great family! Another great experience!
This was my first experience using Dogvacay and I was pleasantly surprised! Rachel was quick to reply, accommodating, and easy to work with from start to finish! We had a meet and greet and the doggies seem to take to her quickly. Loved the picture updates, they seemed relaxed and content. She stayed in my home and everything was exactly as I left it. She provided the best care for my 3 doggies and I would have Rachel take care of the them again. Thanks Rachel!
We were very happy with our experience with Rachel. She responded quickly to messages and sent photos regularly. Thanks, Rachel & family, for taking care of Jasmine!
Rachel was fantastic! Willie came home so happy and he seemed like he had a wonderful time.
This was our first time with Rachel, and my dog Molly seemed to be extremely happy when I came to pick her up. I met Rachel's family members and they confirmed that Molly was very snuggly and happy during her visit!
Zoe had another wonderful stay with Rachel. I received several pictures of our dog while we were away, which showed her very happy and relaxed in Rachel's home. I always feel confident that Zoe is being loved and cared in the same manner as when I am home. This allows me to relax and enjoy my time away. Thanks for everything!
Rachel and her family were great! We received several pictures during the time Mano was with Rachel. When I showed up to pick him up, he was relaxed and happy. I am definitely recommending Rachel to other people I know.
Jasper had another great visit with Rachel and her family. Jasper will be back! Highest recommendation.
Rachel and her family are amazing. I feel like I am leaving my dog Buddy with my family. This time I had booked them really far in advance to ensure that they had a spot for Buddy. I go on vacations with ease of mind that Buddy is well taken care of.
Rachel was patient with my multiple changing dates and requests. I just PCS'd with my 2 dogs and was nervous about finding a sitter last minute after friends that agreed to watch them changed their own plans. I would have used her overnight care if I didn't have friends watching my dogs for the first period of my vacation. I had Rachel coming by on the last day. She was able to come by for a meet and greet a couple of days in advance. I was happy she was able to come over to my house to check in on my dogs, feed them, and let them out to go potty so no accidents.
I had to leave my 90LB Lab mix Elk Hound with Rachel for one night and this was the first time my little girl stayed away from home( she is 3 years old). We had a meet and greet with Rachel and we really liked her. She didn't mind Layla licking her or jumping at her. Layla is full of puppy energy but Rachel didnt mind at all. What we like most is how flexible she is with time. we dropped Layla at 7.30am and her mom was there to take Layla in and she told us she will take Layla for walks and Rachel informed us how Layla was doing when I inquired from her. Rachel her mom and brother were awesome we will be returning customers. Layla was less energetic when we picked her up and we were a bit worried but her vet said that's natural to give her few days to recover. Well she recovered the very next day and now back to being our little energy ball. Thank you Rachel and Family for looking after Layla.
Our dog stayed with Rachel for one night, but I think her family spent much of the time watching him. They were very nice and really seemed to like Champ. We tried to pass on some instructions to Rachel that our dog is food crazy and although only 8 pounds, he can jump up to counters and always finds something to get in to. Unfortunately, I don't think she really cared to listen to our warnings or did not pass them on to her family. Our dog came back quite pudgy which means he definitely got into something (and her dad let us know they did catch him on the table once!). The price for boarding with Rachel is great, however, I do think her attitude and professionalism could use some improvement.
Rachel and her family were great!
Our dogs seemed go had a great time with Rachel and her family. We received a number of pictures during the week to let us know they were doing well. They have a fenced back yard as well which is great. I definitely recommend them.
Chester stayed with Rachel and her family for the second time, and Rachel was great and very accommodating in terms of drop off and pick up times. I have absolutely nothing to complain about, and would definitely be a returning customer.
Great sitter!
Rachel stayed with our dog while we were out of the country for 12 days. We hadn't used a dog sitter in a long time and our dog had never been away from us that long. Rachel came by for a meet and greet and was very friendly and our dog liked her immediately (we did too). Rachel was amazing at keeping in contact with us and answered texts and emails immediately with several updates on how our dog was doing. The pictures we got through the dogvacay site were also great. I did not spend one second of my vacation worried about my dog because I knew he was in great hands. I will definitely use Rachel again for dogsitting as well was recommend her to others.
Rachel is a fantastic host! We could tell that our dog, Jasper was going to love Rachel and her family at our first meeting. We were able to enjoy a worry-free vacation because we knew that Jasper was in a home environment with a family full of dog-lovers.

Rachel is a true professional. She responded promptly to our emails and we loved seeing daily photos of Jasper in our inbox. The best part is that Jasper came home relaxed and healthy.

No doubt, we will be repeat customers. Five stars!
They are a wonderful and accommodating family! We highly recommend them and will definitely use them again.
Rachel and her family did a wonderful job of taking care of my dog! My dog, Chester, actually got to meet and befriend a couple of other dogs during his stay, which was great. I will definitely board Chester with them again.
Rachel and her family were very accommodating. I love that it's a family effort to care for the pups .Our four and a half month old pup, Reba had her first "sleepover" and apparently did well thanks to our new hosts. She was clearly well taken care of and even made a new dog buddy. Reba will definitely be seeing them again.
I am sorry I am so late with this review.. At first it was because I was so tied up with work.. Then when I initially started writing.. I found I couldn't do her justice with words! I really feel like my dog was spoiled rotten and loved very much in Rachel's care.. Her and her family are just the best.. When I travel again.. I will definitely use her if she will let me! If anyone reading this review has any doubt.. Let me just say this: my puppy is my life, my love and my kid - and rachel is absolutely the only person I'll trust with my dog from now on! Thank you Rachel and fam!
I could tell how happy my dogs were at Rachel's, as they barely wanted to leave with me. Rachel's entire family are very good with the dogs and loving, which is exactly what my dogs need. Lots of love and attention.

Rachel was always very quick to respond to my questions ... I will definitely leave my dogs with Rachel again. Highest recommendation. A+++
Rachel provides a good environment for GABINO and has taken care of GABINO very well.
Both Rachel and her family treated my dogs like royalty. I recommend. Cheryl
Rachel and her family are amazing. We can tell how much they love dogs. Our dogs has found another home. We will definitely use them again and again.
Zoe had a wonderful time with Rachel and her family. They made her feel right at home. I felt so happy to know she was well taken care of while we were away. I look forward to Zoe visiting them again. I highly recommend Rachel and her family.
Thanks Rachel you were great!
Rachel, her brother and mother were very attentive to Hailey. She seemed to receive a lot of attention in our absence. When we returned, she seemed to be the same jovial pup that we left and transitioned easily back into her normal routine once she returned home. I would most definitely use Rachel again! Her and her family seem to be true dog lovers.
Rachel and her family were just great. I felt very comfortable leaving my dog there. Will definitely leave him there again :)
Rachel and her family were very welcoming and it was clear that they loved dogs. This was my husband and I's first time using Dog Vacay and we were very pleased with the service.

Rachel, her brother Jason and her mom took great care of our pup, Hailey. When my husband and I picked her up, she was in the same great spirit that we dropped her off in.

We most certainly intend on using Rachel and the Dog Vacay service again in the future.
