About Rachelle

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello there! We're Rachelle and Peter, and as a long time dog owners (of both large and small), we've always loved sharing our home with other dogs!

We both work a 9-5/M-F job, alternating days working from home, and away in the office. We usually have pretty relaxed weekends, frequenting the dog beach, parks, and other dog friendly areas as well. This means that if your dog stays with us, they won't be left alone for long periods of time.

Our apartment is located in the Lincoln Square neighborhood. The apartment itself is on the first floor, (with only 5 stairs at the entrance) making it helpful for most senior dogs to get in or out. With 3 bedrooms and a super long hallway (that I love to throw tennis balls down), the apartment is pretty large, which is great for dogs that need lots of room to play! The backyard is completely fenced in for privacy and protection.

We have an 11 yr old American Eskimo of our own who is generally very relaxed and keeps to herself, around both humans and other dogs. Our daily activities include several walks a day, playing outside, enjoying treats and of course, lots and lots of snuggling!

We have experience with dogs of all ages and will accommodate your dog's schedule, training commands, and sleeping arrangements. We always make sure to stay in touch with the owners and making them feel as comfortable as possible while being away!

Rachelle was so great! My dogs seemed like they had a blast. What a pet friendly place! Nothing makes you feel better about leaving your dogs than when they are with fellow pet lovers.
Rachelle and Peter (& their dog Ella) were so wonderful when they cared for our dog, Milo, for several days while we were away. We received many updates with photos, it was very comforting to know that Milo was being so well cared for. They gave him so much attention; lots of walks, playtime and snuggles. We could not have been happier, I highly recommend them!

Rachelle and Peter were great hosts to our dog Rose. They were more than gracious to provide multiple picture updates each day and it was clear our dog had a great time upon picking her up. We will definitely be booking with them again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a dog sitter. Thank you!

They are the best! Always sending picture updates, taking my dog Toby for walks, playing with him and taking great care!
Toby is always excited to be dropped off at their place, and seems to know the way there, which to me is a great sign!!
100% recommended

This was such a great experience, where do I start? I was very anxious about what to do with my dog while my family and friends were all away for my destination wedding. My dog Sophie is a rescue and does not do well in boarding facilities and usually will stay with a friend when we are away. In this case, I could not have been more pleased with Rachelle, Peter and their little cutie Ella. From the moment I contacted them to see if they were open to a meet and greet, you could tell they were dog-lovers and very welcoming. They even invited us to come visit their home and bring Sophie along to see if she would warm up to them. Well, she did. Looked right at home (and is typically VERY wary of new situations and men, neither of which were the case here).

We dropped Sophie off for her "vacay" and within a day they were emailing me how she was giving them kisses and having a great time. The regular photos that they sent with updates on how she was doing really put my mind at ease as well. Sophie had a great stay with them and I will absolutely reserve another stay with them the next time we need care for Sophie. Book them if you can!

Rachelle was very accommodating and gives lots of updates! My pup had a great time :-)
Had a great experience with Rachelle, Peter, and Ella! Will definitely use them again. Thank you!!!
Rachelle and Peter were both wonderful! They were extremely flexible with drop off and pick up times, which was much appreciated. It was obvious that Nelson had a great time with them. Not only did Rachelle send me a bunch of pictures on both days, but she also included a detailed note about what Nelson had been up to. It really made me feel comfortable having him stay there. We will definitely be booking with them again.

Rachelle was awesome! She was very friendly and took such good care of our dog. She sent us photos and a message during his visit so we could see how he was doing. She was easy to contact and communicate with. I would definitely use Rachelle again! Thanks for everything!

Rachelle was AWESOME! Our pup, Tank, loved his vacay with Rachelle and we will definitely be going to her again soon. Rachelle sent lots of pictures and updates and was really flexible with our schedule. I would HIGHLY recommend her!
Rachelle & Peter were fantastic! They are truly animal lovers & spoiled Mila. I was put at ease with an update within a few hours of dropping her off and received daily pics & messages. Mila is already booked for her next 3 future stays with Rachelle. I feel totally at ease leaving Mila with Rachelle & Peter. So lucky to have found them.

Pawsome! Toby clearly had a wonderful time, and came back happy, healthy and tired from all the play time he had. Rachelle and Peter kept us updated and sent us great pictures of him. We 100% recommend them!
Rachelle and Peter were such amazing sitters! They spoiled our dog more than we do, which I didn't think was possible. We did a meet and greet beforehand and they asked all the appropriate questions and provided me with much needed assurance that my furbaby would be treated like their own. Rachelle uploaded pics, from their many adventures, to the app so I could check up on Happy while we were gone. Though he was excited to see us when we got back, I know he won't mind going back to stay with them in the future.

Rachelle and Peter made our first experience with DogVacay very positive. Once our dogs settled down, they made themselves right at home. Rachelle provided us with updates, pictures and answered all of our questions. Our pups returned home happy, healthy and well exercised.

Rachelle is awesome! We left our Bubba with her for a week and received constant updates and pictures. He loved being there and we will definitely leave him with her again. Highly recommended. Thank you!
Rachelle was fantastic. I've taken Molly to her twice now and both times she has returned happy, healthy, (relatively) tired, and even smelling clean.

She was very responsive and uploaded fantastic pictures. I know Molly had a blast and I will definitely be booking another stay when I need it.

Would highly recommend.

Rachelle was awesome! Very easy to work with and welcoming to our dog Dexter. She sent us updates and pictures. Dexter returned home happy! I would highly recommend Rachelle for boarding.
Rachelle was a great host. She was extremely flexible and accommodating. She was communicative and welcoming. She was everything I could ask for in a host!

Molly had a great time and she was returned to me bathed and happy as can be! I would highly recommend Rachelle to anyone and I'm sure I will be back.

Rachelle was awesome!!! My beloved pup was returned to me happy and healthy, and he even smelled pretty good! Rachelle gave me nothing to worry about during a 17 day trip over the holidays. She sent frequent updates and great photos. My dog got along well with hers and he had plenty of room to play in her backyard. On the night I got back into town, it was -2 degrees and my car wouldn't start, so Rachelle dropped my dog off at my place and gave me a jump start! Great experience!!!

We just left our dog with Rachelle for almost two weeks, and it was such a great experience! Rachelle understood our dog's needs and updated us regularly on how he was doing. Our dog truly loved her and we couldn't have asked for a better person to watch him!

Rachelle is a fantastic host. She was soooo accommodating and really put me at ease about leaving my dog with her. Milos seemed really happy and comfortable in her home. I would definitely use her again.
Rachelle was very nice and accommodating. My dog came home clean and exhausted. :) I would definitely use Rachelle again.
