About Rachel

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello,

My name is Rachel; I am 22 years old. Animals are my passion and I am currently In school studying veterinary technology! I offer boarding, overnight care and/or check-ups in your home, along with bathing and drop-off/pick-up services. I can care for and have experience with cats, dogs, and some small animals.
***All animals that come to stay in my home must be dog and cat friendly as I have my own pets.

When I am caring for your dog I do my best to make him as comfortable as possible. I do this by sticking to his/her normal schedule as closely as possible (feeding,walking times ect.) and of course by giving lots of affection and attention!

Please feel free to message me for more information about rates and services!

I was very happy to see my pets were very happy with Rachel. I was updated with excellent photos during my time away from them and was continually assured of there safety.

Rachel did a great job watching the dogs and the house. Good communication.
Rachel was very accommodating when our trip was delayed. We were able to get home without worry. Thanks Rachel!
Our dog and two rabbits were VERY well taken care of while Rachel stayed at our home for five nights. She really made us feel at ease. She even let us know when she would be leaving for a short period one night, and asked which lights to leave on for our furry kids. She is very thoughtful, honest and trustworthy. And we really appreciated all the updates and pictures!! We will definitely be using her again very soon!

Rachel was amazing! She sent us pictures and updates during our trip. We definitely left our pets in great hands.
Rachel was so sweet to my little Anabell. When I picked her up, she smelled so nice because Rachel gave her a bath. Rachel sent me so many cute photos of Anabell and updates about animal. I'm so happy Rachel was able to accept my last minute request! I hope she's available for my next trip!

Rachel was awesome! My dog suffers from separation anxiety. When I leave he doesn't eat or play but when I dropped him off at Rachel's house he immediately started playing with her dog and cats. It was like he was at home! Rachel also helped calm me by sending a bunch of adorable pictures of Jackson! She sent me daily updates tell me what he was doing and how he was. The morning before I arrived to pick up Jackson, Rachel gave him a bath and clipped his nails. She is an amazing pet sitter and I can't wait to use her again!

Rachel was great! I instantly felt comfortable from our first meeting. One of my pups is very nervous around new people but was very quick to warm up to her. Rachel sent us photo and video updates of the girls everyday, which made me feel good about my decision to book her. Thanks Rachel!

Rachel is amazing...she has always taken great care of EJ and he loves going there, he is treated like family. The best part, we never have to worry, we know that he is in great hands and that he will have a great time. Love her!
Rachel was wonderful with both of my dogs. Riley is a special needs dog (13 year old and blind), and Koda has trust issues when he first meets a new person. Rachel was great with both of the dogs. Rachel was loving and gentle with both making sure their vacation was relaxing. It was reassuring to know that the dogs were in good hands while I was out of town. Rachel sent pictures and texts daily. Riley developed a hot spot, and Rachel was wonderful about taking her to the vet. She updated me about Riley every moment. Definitely asking her to sit with my babies again!!!!!

Rachel did all the pre and post vaca communications like a pro. She showed up on time and seemed to enjoy meeting our two Schnauzers.

They must like Rachel because she ended up letting them sleep with her. Rachel both dog and house sat for us.

Yes, we will ask her to work for us again.

Rachel and her roommate have a lot of experience with animals with various temperaments. My dog gets seperation anxiety and Rachel was able to make her feel at home.

Rachel was able to work with me for pick up and drop off times and that was super convenient.

rachel is awesome. love that she sends pictures.
We left our dog, Scooter a 15 pound Lhasa-Maltese mix, for 17 days while we were out of the country on vacation. Sheilah and Rachel were diligent in sending daily emails and pics of Scooter while we were gone.

They have a large (est. 75-80 pound) German Shepard, Kira, who is somewhat territorial and sensitive to the touch. About mid-way through our vacation Kira bit Scooter on the head. He required two trips to the vet; a shot of antibiotics and pain meds; his head was partially shaved; he did not require stitches. One of the two puncture wounds was about 1 1/2 inches from his left eye. So while Scooter is recovering nicely, the consequences could have been much worse and permanent.

If you have a large dog, well able to defend itself, then you could probably leave your pet here without much worry. However, if you have a small dog I would not risk their getting injured as I think Kira is unpredictable and could injure your pet severely.

This was a great experience. I will be returning whenever I need someone to look after Niko. We received daily updates with pictures letting us know how he was doing and what they had done for that day. He received 24/7 care, which is so much more than any other place we could have gone to. Overall, this is a great place and it was perfect for Niko.

Rachel was great!Hunter loved her and was tuckered out by the time he came home! Thanks Rachel!
Definitely going to ask Rachel's help again! She was GREAT with our puppy!!!
Rachel was a great host to our Santini. I was a little apprehensive leaving him with anyone since he has never boarded before and this would be his first time. She sent us pictures and I was able to talk to her during our vacation. I felt so much better knowing that he is very well taken cared of. I would recommend Rachel to anyone!

Rachel is awesome! I loved the pictures she sent to update me on how Pilar was doing while I was gone. I would definitely recommend Rachel to all pet owners.
Rachel did a great job with our dog. She provides a good environment for dogs to be comfortable and have their needs met. We would user her again!
As always, Rachel was great. She was very responsive and accommodating and kept up updated by sending us pictures of EJ. I will continue to use her every time that I travel. Thanks again!
The best host a person could think about. Rachel has been an excellent host to our dog, Marty. She took great care of him. From giving baths to clipping nails, to playing with him, ...etc. He came back very happy. She was also sending us pictures of our little one while we were in our trip, keeping us updated. She is awesome. We would definitely recommend her and use her services again and again.

Rachel was great with EJ. She was very quick to reply when we requested her services and she was awesome and very hands on. I received pictures of EJ all weekend just to give us peace of mind that he was happy.

I am definitely looking forward to using Rachel again.
