About Rainey

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I've been dog sitting for about 3 years with many happy customers, and I'm excited to branch out to Dog Vacay for the first time. My name is Rainey and I'm a 35 year old dog lover and experienced dog owner who would love to care for your pup while you are away.

I will take up to 2 dogs from the same household (contact me for special pricing), otherwise your dog will get sole attention.

High energy dogs are welcome! I'm happy to offer long walks, on-leash running, trips to the dog park for fetch and socializing (if that is already in your dog's routine), and hikes, depending on the dog's needs and interests. Your high-energy dog will return to you tired and very happy.

Low energy dogs will also find a low key environment where they can relax. One of our regular overnight guests is a bulldog with hip issues, and we ensure he's snug and cared for, that he doesn't overextend himself, and that he gets all his medications.

I have many years of experience working with dogs, including dogs with issues like separation anxiety and leash aggression. I served as a foster for the Oakland Animal Shelter for 4 months, and it was deeply fulfilling, wonderful work. I also adopted a wonderful lab/pit mix in college and cared for her for 8 years. She recently went to stay with my parents to console them after their Golden Retriever passed away, and they fell in love and can't bear to part with her right now. We do not have a dog in the house at this time.

I work in a dog-friendly office building and can bring dogs who are well socialized into the office with me. Alternatively, I can work from home when sitting for dogs that don't like to interact with other people and dogs. Just let me know!

Please also let me know if you have special requirements for your pup.

Sending you peace and joy.

Rainey took such good care of my dog Nigel while we were on vacation this summer. I really enjoyed the pictures she sent of him playing in her backyard - it was extremely reassuring to see that he was settling in well and having a good time. I've known Rainey for a long time, and there was no one that I would trust more than her with Nigel.

I run an animal rescue & Rainey was an exceptional long term foster. Rainey gave tons of love and patience to a very high energy dog that also had special training and medical needs. Rainey rearranged her home and work space to help accommodate all of the needs of this dog. Rainey also was an excellent observer / reporter of the dog both medically and behaviorally. All of Rainey's specialized care and attention helped this dog achieve a full recovery and be adopted to the perfect forever home. I completely and highly recommend Rainey as a pet sitter, any dog in her care would be very lucky to be there!

Rainey was wonderful with our dog. Took her on walks everyday, loved her and sent photos daily. She asked me questions I would have never thought of but were key in the care of our baby. We will definitely be using her anytime we need a dog sitter. Absolutely top notch!!!!
Rainey was so awesome with our Oso. She took him for multiple walks every day, adventures to the park, played fetch, and totally put my mind at ease while we were gone. She gave us great notes on his activities and sent me pictures of him every day - looking like a totally happy dog! Thanks so much Rainey, will definitely let you know the next time we go out of town!
Rainey is absolutely amazing!! We left for a week for the holidays and felt slightly nervous leaving behind our new puppy pit bull olivia, but leaving her with Rainey was truly a vacation for her. She was exercised and showered with attention, never left alone, and clearly sad to leave. Rainey even provided us with detailed notes about her sleeping, eating, exercise, and potties for every day which was above and beyond. Thank you auntie Rainey you are now our newest family member :)
Rainey was an excellent host! She sent me updates and pictures every day. Our girl came home happy and tired from all of the walks and adventures she had with Rainey. I was also provided a daily log of the day's events. We will definitely go back.
