About Rachel

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello all! If you have or have not used me before I am in the process of moving this weekend to a house! So please allow until Monday for updated photos & a bio of my new location thank you!
I'm Rachel and I would love to take care of your pets! I am originally from Connecticut and moved to Denver February 2014. I live with my Boyfriend Justin and 10 month old Catahoula Leopard Dog. I currently am attending Bel Rea Institute of Animal Technology to become a Certified Veterinary Technician. I already walk and board with Wag and am excited to start with Dog Vacay!
You needn't worry about my downtown location I accomidate plenty of time for the dogs. We walk to the nearby parks such as Confluence and Commons, go to the dog parks at Sky, Cherry Creek Reservoir, and Railyard, as well as frequently go up to the mountains for hikes on the weekends in Evergreen.
My days start at 6 am, getting an early start to feed and have a long walk around the neighborhood or a morning run, depending on what each dog needs. (My dog personally likes a run.) All dogs will have some afternoon downtime to nap or play with some chew toys. There will be a long afternoon walk, some time at the park following Dinner with two potty breaks one before lunch and another late night walk before bedtime. I personally like the dogs sleeping on the bed but there are plenty of dog beds that they should feel right at home. Don't be surprised if your dog comes home with a bone or a new toy, I am a sucker for spoiling especially since Kriser's Natural Dog Food is right across the street. Lastly, if I don't tucker out your pup I know Copper will. Your dog will leave tired and happy. Contact me for any questions or meet and greets!

Rachel walked our leash aggressive dog for 4 days in a row while we had some busy holiday plans (we are working on this issue with him, don't worry). She provided us daily updates and pictures and Church, our rescued American Bulldog mix loved her. She was also able to provide me with some tips for dealing with him on walks and was very nice personally. I also requested that she put on a comfort wrap on him when she leave and she had no issues with obliging. Everything was great and I was so relieved after meeting her the first day. It really set my at ease knowing Church was in such good hands. I will definitely seek her again if and when I need a dog walker. I highly recommend Rachel.
Rachel saved my life. My dogs can be particular and with working a 12 hour shift, I get nervous. I told her that one of them might not even come out of his crate because of fear but that wasn't the case. I received pictures of them playing and just having fun...,. My mom can't even get Hugo out his crate. I would recommend her to anyone and I will be using her again.
Rachel was extremely flexible with pick up and drop off times, sent us picture and video updates throughout the weekend and our dog Korra came home tired and happy. We will definitely be coming back in the future!
Rachel was great!! She worked so well with our loving but excitable Lab. She sent us pictures and Dallas was active all weekend! She came home and slept for two straight days! Thanks Rachel for a great weekend!!
Rachel was awesome! She sent a ton of pictures of my baby while I was away. She was very accommodating of my schedule and provided a lot of love to my little angel. I would totally recommend her and use her again when I am out of town. My dog loved her!!
Rachel was fantastic. She sent lots of photos throughout the stay of Clark and Copper hanging out, playing at the park, resting in the living room, and so on. Clark was very reluctant to leave Rachel and Copper when it was time to go home, which is a great sign! We have another stay booked.
