About Rachel

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I hear from a lot of people that they can't find boarding for their senior/special needs dogs, so let me tell you I can help! Medication, elderly, disabled, etc I have the experience.

Trips to the park, games, toys, soft couches, piles of blankets and pillows...you can rest assured that your dog will have a ton of fun AND sleep like royalty. It's cliche to say that dogs are man's best friend, but it's true! And I treat every dog I watch with the care and love that your furry best friend deserves.

My life with dogs:
I grew up with dogs my entire life and used to volunteer at the animal shelter when I lived in Alaska. I've boarded and sat for friends for years. I have 2 dogs that were both rescues: one puggle and one chihuahua. Both of my dogs are seniors, and my oldest one has some medical needs so I am very comfortable with giving special care and attention to other dogs. Seniors, dogs with special needs, daily medicine administration, I can do it. All dogs in my care are very friendly :)

I have class for a few hours M-F, but other than that, I'm an independent contractor for work so I can set my hours to suit your dog's needs.

Rachel is the best! She took amazing care of my boy but she also was incredibly flexible and very friendly....I highly recommend her!!!
Our 2 year old small dog Dexter had a great time with Rachel and her dogs. We were nervous first-timers with DogVacay and she did a great job of making us feel confident that he was in good hands. The pictures were also much appreciated.
Rachel was very communicative and easy to work with. Our dog, Sugar, returned home relaxed and well taken care of. Also, loved receiving photos of our dog while we were away.
Mill came home healthy, happy, and tired. Thanks for taking good care of her, especially on such short notice.
Rachel was awesome!! I have always been worried because I have a 4lb chi and I was relieved that she has a small one too and knows how to take care of them. I felt confident leaving my pup there, knowing she is in good hands. And she was!! Definitely recommend Rachel!!!
Rachel was very responsive to text and email. She was flexible with drop off and pick up. She set up a small doggy play area in her living room with a ball pit and little beds. Once we picked up the dog, she seemed calm and happy.
Rachel was very welcoming and friendly. She was very flexible about scheduling and easy to communicate with. Her dogs are very sweet. Lulu seemed happy when I picked her up. I enjoyed seeing the photos of my smiling and relaxed dog.
We had our first visit at Rachels and it was great. Her communication with us was quick in setting up the visit and day of. Highly recommended.
Rachel was very flexible with meeting us and picking up/ dropping off our dog. She provided him with a cozy place to sleep and consistently sent us photos and a video of our pup. We will most certainly use Rachel again! Highly recommend.
Great sitter! Thanks again for looking after our pup!
Great Stay with a caring, flexible host!
Rachel was very responsive to my texts, flexible to our drop off/pick up schedule and treated our pup as though he was her own. We recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter!
I felt at ease on my vacation with Rachel! She sent me pictures of my dog and told me she was doing great! I'd definitely recommend and use her services again!
Rachel was great! Nash seemed to have had a good time with her and I'm really thankful I was able to find someone who could keep up with my constant worrying, and send pictures! Thanks for everything!
Rachel did a great job with Mia! She sent me a few photos of Mia while I was away, and Mia even hopped on Rachel's bed for a bit! That my dog warmed up to Rachel so quickly shows a lot, as Mia is a rescue who was previously abused and is generally pretty wary of new people. Rachel also took the time to brush Mia, which was the first thing I noticed when I picked her up - she looked super sleek from being thoroughly brushed!

Thanks Rachel!
I loved the picture updates while I was away! It was easy to set up the appointment as well as drop-off and pick-up times. Will do again!
Rachel was super flexible and easy to coordinate with. Our dog was at home with her pack and came back rested and relaxed as if he had been on vacation.
Rachel was great! Very accommodating and flexible with drop off and pickup times. The pup was perfectly happy!
