About Rachael

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Rachael and I love dogs. My house is clean, spacious, friendly, and will be very open to your sweet fur babies. I own two dogs who get along with dogs they meet and love to have playtime together after smelling each other and getting acquainted.

I do require that you contact me via phone or through the DogVacay website on here and I will get back to you as soon as possible from you contacting me from your booking, so NO long waits or going through a mess trying to find the perfect sitter, because I am right here to assist you and your beloved furry companion(s).

I would prefer being contacted Monday through Friday from 8:00AM to 10:30PM, Saturday from 8:00AM to 11:35PM, and Sunday from 8:00AM to 9:45PM for a more efficient and faster response time for you as a client and for my schedule, please and thank you very much! I don't charge ridiculous prices to watch your sweet dogs either, because I believe great quality pet care shouldn't cost an arm and a leg.

Please come PREPARED and be VERY specific about how many dogs you need watched, what kind of dogs and their ages, their personality types, if they are potty-trained, if they are coming with crate, food, toys, etc., and any medical information if you have it or what you know about your furry friends already. Please include a DogVacay profile with the specific dogs you need watched for Vacation and if available, please include a picture.

Please include what kind of services you need for them such as: Day time Care, Overnight Stay, and/or bathing. I will send you a quote based off of your information that you have given me and I will provide you with a quote and you inform me if it is appropriate for you and your furry companion(s). Please include specific drop off times and pick up times if all possible for your furry pals, so there is no confusion or the need to feel rushed. I want every client to feel relaxed and at ease with a good time schedule! If you are not content or satisfied with your quote price, I will gladly negotiate with you and happily re-quote you for something more acceptable for you and your fur babies.

Your dog(s) while on dog vacation will enjoy being spoiled with interactive playtime, creative toys, going on long walks, and with your permission the pleasure of eating some yummy treats. You will also receive cute daily photos and video updates of your furry friend! Every dog is unique and I work on a one on one approach with them and embrace their personalities, because just like people; everybody is different!

I have watched several of my friends' dogs for long periods of time and they love their stay at my home with my husband and I. My service is the best service offered, because I can work one on one with your dog and they will enjoy being in a safe and happy home. If your dog isn't potty trained, that isn't a problem, because I enjoy cleaning, so no yucky messes or disgusting smells in my beautiful and happy home! My husband can also assist in providing excellent service for your furry companion(s). Why settle for anything less than the best? Don't be shy, book with me today for a waggin' good time! :)

My wife is great with animals. She has a deep desire to help make every animal feel welcome in our happy and clean home. She enjoys bathing our dogs, feeding them homemade food, and meeting their requirements above and beyond expectations. We would love to make you and your pet feel welcome in our home.

Rachel was very accommoding in that she only had two days notice for the reservation. A photo that she sent showed my dog being the center of attention with some very cute puppies.
Rachael was a great dog host for our senior Jack Russell terrier, Maddi! She was excellent at communicating before, during, and after Maddi's stay. She also paid close attention to any special requests we had for Maddi's stay. It was a great experience and we will definitely use her again when we travel to the Savannah area!
Rachael and her husband cared for my dog as if she was their own, I will be requesting their service for my next vacation!
Tish seemed to of had a great time with Rachel.
I highly recommend this sitter for any duration of time that you have to leave your pet. Rachael dog sit my dog Jack for 10 days and daily provided me with updates and photos of his interaction with the family and resident dogs. Rachael made Jack feel at home from the moment he arrived allowing me to comfortably leave without fear of my dogs safety.
Great provider!!!!!!

Rachael took great care of my baby, and she gave me daily photo updates so that I had peace of mind. My dog Poppy has very long hair that's hard to take care of, but he looked and smelled very clean after a 2-week stay, amazing! Thank you Rachael, I will gladly send Poppy your way if you are kind enough to host him in the future! Thanks!
Rachel took great care of Rudy. She sent updates and I would definitely recommend her and use her again! This was a last minute get away for New Years and she responded quickly and was helpful as this was my first time using the site.
My dog has separation anxiety and can be difficult for sitters/friends/family to deal with if he is not in the comfort of his own home. I was upfront about all of my dog's needs and Rachael was very receptive and willing to care for him over the long holiday weekend. Instead of getting annoyed or frustrated with my dog when he started exhibiting some of his behaviors, she took him on longer walks and let him be outside supervised. She took action to make him more comfortable and that REALLY comforted me, because we haven't always experienced that in the past with sitters and even boarding/daycare establishments. She really embraced my dog's quirks and I was able to relax over my holiday and not stress about whether or not he was comfortable and being treated well. Rachael seemed to genuinely enjoy my dog's company, which was a huge relief for me. I will definitely try and reserve Rachael again if we need to go out of town.
Bebe had such a good time at her doggy vacay ! Rachael did such a good job looking after my fur baby .
Hurley was treated so well at her home and with constant updates back to I will use her services again
Rachel was perfect. Her and her husband took great loving care of my dogs while I was away for a few days. Rachel was very understanding of one of my dogs special needs and was able to accommodate. She also didn't mind handling the dogs a bit longer as I was tied up with business and was late picking them up. I would gladly and easily recommend rachel and will be booking with her again in the future.
