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.

I use Rachael's services every single time I travel, which is a lot these days. She is dependable, understanding about my work travels and last minute changes, and I always return to a clean house. I feel so comfortable knowing my dogs (BABIES) are in her hands, and really, that is the most important part.

Rachel was great with our beagle, Belle! Our Belle was a happy girl staying with Rachel.
Rachael was very responsive to my initial email to her. Happy go lucky, loves dogs, very communicative w me w photos & texts as soon as I contacted her while I was out of town. My poodle was in excellent spirits -- thank you Rachel for taking such good care of my four legged girl!!!

I would 1000% recommend Rachael! She watched my 1.5 year old Boxer, Pepper, while I was out of town for the weekend. I unfortunately had a neighbor cancel last minute, so I was left with only hours to find a sitter before I had to fly out of town. Rachael was very quick to respond and was extremely accommodating to my frantic state! She is the definition of a dog lover, and sent me sweet pictures of Pepper while I was gone! I am pretty sure Pep didn't want to leave her new friends when I came to pick her up. I am so thankful that I found her on this site and have someone I can trust to watch my baby Pep! I will certainly use her again in the future, and recommend her to anyone who might be nervous about using someone new! Your fur baby will be in good hands!

Rachael P. is great! I recently had a bad dog sitter experience and was super nervous about hiring another. Rachael quieted all of my fears. She sent pics of my babies while I was away and left my house in pristine condition. One of my dogs is very high maintenance and she handled him, and his oral meds, like a pro. I've already hired Rachael for another upcoming trip.

Took great care of my fur baby!
Rachael seemed to take good care of my dog and appeared to give him a lot of attention. She also sent several photos to show he was doing well.
