About Rachel

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We love animals around here. As I type, I am covered in 2 dogs and a cat. We would love to spend time with your furry friends.. goodness knows we understand what it is like to try to have your fur family taken care of so you can get away now and then!

Pet guests will be included in our family, and your preferences will be respected. You prefer to crate or not to? Our dogs are crated only when we need to leave the house. Its up to you. You don't want your dogs to get used to the couches, that's ok, we will ensure we uphold your expectations. More importantly, we will give your dogs the love and attention they need and you want for them. We have four loving humans and two playful beagles to ensure to that!

Our yard is fenced, though it does not replace walks. We love to go to the beach, the parkway, or Bruce Pit daily. I am home with the animals most of the time, so doggies with separation issues will feel supported, and puppies in training can be minded. We do have a large staircase, so dogs with mobility issues will need to be confined to the main floor of the house.

We can not accept dogs with aggressive behaviours toward children, other dogs or cats. You know your dog, please keep this in mind.

You are welcome to come by to meet us and our Beagles any time!

Oh and do you have Instagram? If you do, let me know and I'll document your pet's stay with us there!

Rachel and her family took great care of our disabled dog Zoey. Very happy that we found Rachel!
Daisy enjoyed her day with her canine friends and I was very happy with the experience as well.
Huge help taking my rottsky pup last minute while I had to leave for a work trip. No problem keeping my pup an extra day since I was delayed getting home. Layla had a great time walking trails and playing with the other dogs. Was quite tired on the way home. Thanks again Rachel!
I felt very comfortable having Rachel look after Daisy in my home. It was a very good experience for all! Rachel was great with Daisy and was flexible to adopt to her schedule and needs.
Rachel and her family treated my two dogs as if they were their own. I could tell from the updates, pictures and movies that the dogs were comfortable and happy. Where previous sitters hadn't been able to get them out and about, Rachel managed to get them out for off leash walks (well, leash-on walks, safety first of course) at Bruce Pit. They obviously integrated well with Dean and Sammy (lovely puppies) and were wonderfully calm when they returned home. For two normally neurotic pups who can suffer from separation anxiety, this was a miracle. Thank you so much for the wonderful care!!!!
Rachel kept us updated to how our dog was doing and the trips they made to Bruce pit which was awesome since our dog has separation anxiety. We were able to see her playing with the other dogs and know she was having a great time. Thanks!!
Our hosts were excellent. I had to make a late/last minute booking, and a first boarding experience for Coco since living with me, and Rachel was ready to quickly assess if Coco would integrate wigh her other dogs.

Coco immediately took to Rachel and the other dogs - and I continued to receive regular updates through the weekend.

I know we have a safe place to board in the future, and I'm looking forward to working with Rachel and her partner again soon.
Rachel & Her loving family took amazing care of our Jersey girl. We were so nervous about the whole process as we're going to be gone for 11 days without our dog for the first time, but this whole process reassured us and Jersey fit in with Rachel's Beagles, cats and her whole family. From the pics we were sent we could see that she was spoiled, with multiple walks, hugs, cuddles & excursions! She even took the tin tin correct some of her bad walking habits. Rachel even bathed her for her return home to us :) I would highly recommend her!
Rachel and her family were just wonderful with my dog, I had more anxiety than my dog had, having never left her with strangers, but Rachel sent me daily updates and pictures, and my dog was treated like one of the family. I definitely will hire Rachel again, and I am sure my dog will be happy when she see's the family again.
Once again thank you so much Rachel xo
Suzy sends some kisses and licks also xoxox
