About Rachel

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Rachel, My Husband (Jonathan) and I live in Bristow, VA and we are a team. I am 30 and a full time Stay-Home mother to two little children ages 6 and 5. I am excited to watch your pup during the day! I always had a puppy or three growing up. I have a single family home with a completely fenced in back yard (open slats that have been chicken wired) in a wonderful pet friendly neighborhood community. Your pet can spend time outside in the fenced in yard running freely or take a walk around the block and meet other pets in the community. Your pet will experience lots of love and play time at Duncan Doggy Care!

Rachel was great. I could tell our dog loved being there!
Rachel and her family were very easy to coordinate drop off and pick up with! Brice seemed to have a great Thanksgiving vacation with them :)
Rachel took great care of our dog while we were away for Thanksgiving holiday. Her home has a nice fenced backyard. She also replied quickly to my texts to see how our dog was doing.
We will use Rachel again. Very satisfied with the care the dogs received. We are always worried when using a new sitter that the dogs will come home stressed but they were wonderful. Thank you!
Excellent host. Max loved Rachel.
Love the whole experience with this team, and the care they took of our Boss and Spike!
It was a last minute reservation, as we were about to go out of town for Labor Day weekend. I love their quick response, and willingness to cooperate with our schedule. The dogs were comfortable and happy. Thank you very much! Boss and Spike will definitely be back!
Miles seemed to had a good time at Rachel's house. Her house is clean with a fenced in yard. I felt at ease leaving him and was able to enjoy my vacation.
Rachel was an excellent host. Even though it was just for a day but my Dog had lots of fun, i could tell because after she got home she slept for 5-6 hours straight :) which is very rare. I have booked a longer stay with Rachel which i am sure will be as much fun as this day visit was.
Rachel was great with our rambunctious, high-energy lab mix! She responded promptly to our emails and text messages, and we were able to enjoy our vacation without worrying about our dog! We highly recommend her, and will definitely be using her services again!
Our Riley spent six nights and seven days at Rachel and family's home. Their home was very clean, the backyard is fenced in and secured with chicken wire. Rachel always responded to my emails when checking in once per day. When picking our Riley up, she appeared happy and well cared for, which is why I would use this service again. Five stars for sure!!
Our dog, Lulu, had a great time with Rachel and her family. Would happily use her again.
I tried to be compassionate, but honest… and addressed the issue, not the person…
I booked with Rachel a few weeks prior to my business trip based on her positive reviews and extensive experience. The day before our meet-and-greet, she informed me that she could not be there and that her husband would greet me and my dog instead. I didn’t think anything of it at the time, but that turned out to be a mistake. My dog was fine when I left him with her husband. However, when her husband was not there, my dog—in a strange, new environment with a complete stranger (as far as he’s concerned)—began to act out. This is something I would expect an experienced dog-sitter to be prepared for. To my disappointment, Rachel contacted me later that day at 9 p.m. to ask if I could find another sitter. I was already alsleep and didn't see the message until 1 am. With an early flight the next morning, I frantically sought a replacement who could accommodate him on such short notice. DogVacay worked with me to find a resolution stating that protocol was not followed. I received a $30 credit to use towards a future booking, which didn’t quite cover the fees I incurred for booking with Rachel, but it was better than nothing. I’m just glad that I was able to find the right sitter for my dog in time. Perhaps you’ll have a better experience booking with Rachel if you have a smaller dog that doesn’t require too much attention. Nice family, just not the right fit for my dog.
Rachel and her family took amazing care of my Honey. Honey tends to be a bit nervous in unfamiliar places but Rachel assured me that she would be comfortable and feel right at home soon enough. When I spoke with her the next day she said Honey was doing great. When i picked her up she was full of energy and looked so happy.
I would highly recommend Rachel. She had a great environment for dogs, including a nice fenced in yard. My dog Clara was well cared for, and came home very happy from her stay. I would definitely use Rachel again.
Rachel made the process very simple for me. It was the first time I used "dogcacay" and I was very happy to hear about it in very early TV program.
Rachel took very good care of Mara, my dog, for the hole eleven days. I found Mara in excellent shape and I am looking forward for next time, if Rachel will be available.
Rachel was great! She was nice and friendly and put me at ease for leaving my dog with someone who wasn't family for the first time. Highly recommended!
We are so happy we found such a wonderful dog sitter for our dogs! This was their second stay with Rachel. When Rachel came to the door to let us in, our dog Joey jumped with excitement. That made me feel so good about leaving our dogs with her.

We have a crazy schedule and very much appreciate Rachel's timely responses and flexibility. She also has good knowledge of dogs and you can see that when she interacts with them. Her house is very neat and clean too so I don't worry about the dogs finding food on the counter tops or getting into things.

We will definitely continue to use Rachel!
Rachel and her family were great to work with and very easy going. Kaya really enjoyed her time there and she'll be back!
Rachel took really good care of Cocoa.
Rachel welcomed our request to care for our 6 month puppy Charlie while we went away for the holidays. Rachel was very responsive to all of our initial requests and follow up during our time away. She checked in which brought comfort and ease knowing our puppy was in good hands. We will definitely reach out to Rachel again in the future.
Maggie was treated extremely well. We will definitely have Maggie stay again. Thank you Rachel.
DogVacay with Rachel was AMAZING!! I have a female Jack Russell, Nikki, that isn't around other pets. Rachel helped Nikki to easily feel like part of the family. We will definitely use DogVacay with Rachel again and again.
Yoshi had a great time with Rachel and her family. He came back to us and was exhausted not only for the evening he returned, but also the next day. Those adorable kids of hers wore my poor Yoshi out. THANK YOU!!!!!
Our dog came back and slept! I think he had a good time.
She took good care of my dog. Definitely better than boarding at a kennel where my dog would sit in a little crate all day long.
