About Rachael

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a 26 year old female in Atlanta who has a big heart for dogs and other animals! During the week I work a full time job organizing textile and apparel trade shows and enjoy it very much, but my life outside of work is dedicated to any and every four-legged friend! In my free time, I volunteer with Adopt-A-Golden Atlanta and foster dogs through their organization, as well as manage and run a not for profit online dog boutique that supports local shelters! Although I work a fulltime job I have the flexibility to go home and spend time with the dog I'm taking care of so you will never have to worry about your pet being unattended for long periods of time. Your furbaby will always receive my full attention, lots of walks, and more than likely a few extra treats when with me ;)! To say I love dogs would be an understatement. I grew up with a beagle that I had for 14 years, until she passed in August of 2012. My family now owns two small dogs and I have a dog of my own, a Belgian malinois, that splits time between me and my significant others home in Raleigh, NC. I love her very much and miss her terribly when she is away so I am looking forward to meeting, playing, and taking care of your dog, not only to give me a furry four legged companion, but to give you peace of mind knowing your dog is being loved on and is safe while you are away on vacation, at work, or just down the road! In my home I also have a full-time friend named Goose, who belongs to my roommate. He loves each and every dog that enters our home and will provide lots of playtime for your pup!

Your dog will always be my first priority, no matter if it's a simple 30 minute walk or a weekend stay! I treat every dog as if they were my own and truly understand how important your fur baby is to you! I am flexibile with my time and schedule and will always do what I can to ensure you feel comfortable and secure when it comes to me handling your pooch! Whether it be a few meet and greets or a simple chat on the phone your peace of mind is incredibly important to me!

**If you do not see your desired date as available on my calendar reach out to me anyways. I only allow one booking at a time on here so I don't run into any schedule issues, but sometimes am able to accomodate more!**

**If booking for more than one dog, reach out to me! I offer discounts for families with more than one pup!**

Phenomenal! I have seen Rachael first hand for year with not only her own pet, but my pet as well. Each day she enters the home with love and compassion, greeting the pets with love (maybe a treat or two). She also goes further to ensure their evening consists of a long walk and/or a play date at the park. On the weekends it is important to Rachael that the pets as well get outdoor and recreational enjoyment. She is a wonderful pet owner and will look after your little one like it is her own.

Aaron (our dog) instantly bonded and he was such HappyDog when I picked him up. Rachel accommodated my near- last minute booking and worked out a schedule. Very in-touch with photos/messages. Will definitely repeat.
So Rachael was awesome!!! So very professional!! Our larger dog Micah wasn't being friendly when she tried to enter the house and she informed me right away. And communicated with me about the whole thing. So she didn't end up sitting for us. But that was my fault for not doing a meet and greet. However, her professionalism and poise was amazing. I felt aweful for the experience, but was fortunate to have a friend come to the rescue. So go Rachael!!! Thank you for being so cool.
Rachael was great with Gus and kept me updated with pictures and videos. Very accommodating and made drop-off and pick-up conventions.
