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!

Our apartment is located in the Lincoln Square/Albany Park neighborhood, right across the street from a large park. Our home is fairly big, allowing lots of room to run around and play.

We both work a 9-5 job, trying to alternate days working from home, and away in the office. During the work week, we may be away from home up to 5 hours a day (coming home during lunch for walks). We try to stay home when schedules allow, but please message for special accommodations.

We have an 12 yr old American Eskimo of our own who is very relaxed and gets along with nearly all dogs. Our daily activities include several walks, making homemade doggy treats and of course, tons of snuggling! Typically, we'll only watch one dog at a time, unless two dogs come from the same household, so that means plenty of attention to go around.

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 send photo and text updates to the owners so you feel as comfortable as possible while being away!

___________________________
OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

A reminder that DogVacay operates on a 24 hour period. We allow a couple hours grace period between pick up/drop off times, but additional pricing will be added for more hours. For ex. if you dropped your pup off at 9AM on Thursday, and picked them up at 10AM Sunday, the standard nightly rate applies. However, if you were to pick up your pup Sunday evening, an additional fee would apply.

4 - 8 hours over: additional $8
8 - 16 hours over: additional $17
16 hours over: will be rounded up to an additional day

Because it's our home too, and we try to be mindful of our neighbors, if your dog is a barker or is not completely potty trained, one of us would need to dog sit in your home-which we're more than willing to do as well!

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out! Looking forward to watching your pup soon!

Rachelle was AMAZING. She had her hands full with our two pups (who were not yet housebroken) and took such great care of them. Lots of pics and walks. I can not recommend her enough!
I cannot say enough amazing things about Rachelle! it was the first time we had to use Dogvacay and I am so thankful we found her. I tend to be an anxious pup mom, and our dog can be hard to get to know. This was also a last minute situation and Rachelle got right in there and knew exactly what to do. She sent incredible updates that made our weekend away so much easier. We knew she was getting the best care. When we got home Josie was relaxed, and had zero stress. Rachelle is the best and I cannot wait to have her back.

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.
