About Rachel

Greetings animal lovers! I am an elementary physical education teacher who is passionate for physical fitness and animals! My love for animals is a close second to my love for teaching. My husband and I have one pup who is about two years old! He is a hound dog/bulldog mix. He hasn't met a dog, cat, person, or kid that he doesn't love! We also have three rescue cats that stay indoors. I have plenty of experience with animals as they have always been a part of my life.

After an outstanding experience with dogvacay for Sizzla, I decided to jump on board and became host! I understand that leaving a pet behind, whether it is just for the workday or for a longer period of time, can be difficult and stressful for pet owners! I would love the opportunity to provide not only a safe haven for your pup, but also a fun and playful experience that will put you at ease! I am available to host your pup while you go away for a night or weekend. I also offer daycare services. If you notice a service is not offered, please ask and I will do what I can to make it happen!

My home is animal friendly, in fact you might mistake it for a "pet palace." We have a medium sized backyard that has plenty of space for running and playing; it is also fenced in. There is a park with trails right around the block from our house as well. Your dog will have a blast away from home between outdoor play, walks to the park, interaction with our pup, Sizzla, and constant love and attention that I will provide.

My teaching schedule is unique in that I teach just one full day a week (Thursday) and half-days the rest. If you are looking for a host for daycare, I can most likely accommodate you and your pup. My husband and I do our best to provide 24/7 supervision for daycare. In the event that we are unable to both be home, it would not be for more than a few hours max. We have a "dog room," two large crates, and a few gates that be used to gate off areas of the house.

Your dog will be supervised at all times on weekends and will enjoy playing outside in the backyard and trips to the Cabin John Dog Park (with permission).

Your pup is free to relax on our furniture, on the dog bed, or on the bed in our spare room- actually who am I fooling? It's Sizzla's room! With permission, toys can be left out and treats can be given! Between me and you, our animals have it better than my husband and I! The house is theirs!

Please message me with any inquiries! A meet and greet is completely your decision; I do not require one, but if you aren't sure how your dog will interact with my pup, Sizzla, then I suggest one! Like I said previously we have three cats in the house, so it is a must that your pup does not mind kitty cats!

Thanks and I can't wait to meet you and your pup!!

1st time I used dogvacay. once Embers and I met Rachel and her dog Sizzla I knew I found the perfect place. Rachel sent updates periodically through out the day showing Em playing, napping, just having fun. I definitely will contact Rachel and dogvacay the next time I need a sitter.

Rachel did an amazing job taking care of my pup Pokey. She sent a lot of pictures to keep me updated and I picked up a happy and tired dog the next day.
Pepper had a great time with Rachel and Sizzla! Rachel was very flexible with our schedule and made Pepper feel right at home from the second we arrived. Sizzla was the perfect match for Pepper, who loves to play. We also really appreciated all of the pictures that Rachel sent us throughout the day! We will be using her again!
