About Rachael

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Rachael, I have been caring for animals ever since I could walk. My love for animals is incredible. The other caretaker in the house is my fiance who is also an RN and has taken care of dogs all his life along with reptiles, cats and fish. Our house layout has a split floor plan we have tile in our kitchen and carpet in the rest of the house. We have no kids of our own so we have two extra bedrooms, one has plenty of space for them to play and another room that has an air mattress if they choose to sleep in there. In our master bedroom we have a dog bed right next to our bed along with a pillow and blanket. There are plenty of places to sleep! We have a fully fenced backyard along with a screened in porch. On a typical day I play with my babies plenty! We take naps together and go for a walk early in the morning or later in the afternoon. My dogs absolutely love walks! When your dog comes to our house we will do a meet and greet just so you feel comfortable and get to know us as the caretakers and get the chance to meet my two girls and boy. Please let me or my fiance know if you have any concerns or questions!

We look forward to meeting you and your companion!!!! :)

5 star all the way, will use her again. So friendly and dogs were happy.
Duke must have had a blast and got tons of exercise, he slept for almost a whole day when we picked him up. We plan on using Rachel for daycare once a week so Duke can get his exercise.
Rachel and Shea are wonderful hosts. They were great during the Meet and Great and introduced our dog, Auggie, to each of their dogs, one at a time, prior to the Vacay. During Auggie's stay, they kept us posted on what was going on at their house and how Auggie was fitting in. They sent us texts and pics, and they even let Auggie sleep on their bed with them, just like he does at home. Auggie had fun with all the dogs, especially the greyhounds and trying to keep up with them in the fenced in yard. I know that Auggie felt comfortable at their home, as he ate his food, something he won't do when he is stressed. I would HIGHLY recommend Rachel and Shea and their menagerie of fur babies!!!

I loved everything about our experience with Rachael. She was super sweet, kept me updated with pictures of my pup, and extremely affordable. I was nervous about taking Ringo somewhere new for the first time, but I think we've both found a great fit at Rachael's. Will definitely be using her again!

Rachael and her fiancé were very friendly. they took care of our Rambo well. I like that Rambo was able to roam anywhere he wished to make him feel at home. I received several texts and pics while I was away to see how our Rambo was progressing which I feel was good info. It made my husband feel more relaxed away from Rambo. I would recommend Rachael to others.

We came into town from NC to vacation with family in FL. We had our sweet Opa with us and, as always, used dogvacay to find her a home away from home. We absolutely LOVED having her with Rachel and her husband. They were loving and welcoming. Sent pictures and allowed our SPOILED ROTTEN girl be spoiled rotten! We look forward to Opas next sleep over on our next vacation!

I must say that Rachael and Shea were very hospitable from the first time we met them. I can tell they love their babies very much and took excellent care of our Eve. Eve came home worn out and I think she has a crush on Titan! Rachael kept my mind at ease with texting pics and responding right away to me. I would definitely recommend Rachael and Shea for boarding.

Rachel and her husband took great care of our babies in our absence. They graciously gave our four legged family members free reign of their home and updated us frequently on their well being. Not only do I recommend, but i plan on boarding with Rachel again. BTW, Rachel came highly recommended to me, and she did not disappoint!

They were very anxious to meet our 81 pound dog! It was really nice that they texted pictures to let us know that he was doing great. Whenever I asked questions by text, they answered very quickly! Having our dog in their house was nice and he got to sleep on his own bed. I think putting him in a kennel would stress him out! We are very grateful!

Great experience! Rachael and Shea made us feel welcome, and Hannah took to them right away. I enjoyed my get away knowing Hannah enjoyed her Vacay!
I am so impressed with Rachael! My dogs aren't huge fans of new people, but when I came to get them, Max (my biggest people hater) had been sitting with her for hours. My other three had such a good time as well. Even when I was there, they were hanging out with Rachael and Shay. I had some specific instructions because of health issues, and they took them as seriously as I did. I can't say enough good things! If you want your dogs to socialize with great people and amazing dogs, definitely book with Rachael and her crew!!

Milo is 2 years old (still puppy to me) and he has not been encountered enough with any other people and dogs yet so, I was REALLY scared how he would react with Rachael's household environment. When I met Rachel and her fiance... and yup, my Milo was "crazy" as I expected. Tried to attack their little cute Layla but they never gave up on Milo... they were carefully stay with the situation and wait for another 5 min and see... and wait another 5 min and see... and when Milo started show his better attitude, we went their fenced back yard (NICE VIEW!) and he met two Greyhounds. Well, Success! Milo was naturally adjusted the place and he realized that he cannot be selfish anymore and let's make some friends instead!! They sent us some pictures and everything went great and NO problems at all. Next day, when I picked up Milo, he sure had a great time with them. I feel like Milo stepped up a lot and he looks like "a BIG man" now.. they are truly a miracle worker for sure! I will bring him for a day care next time... Milo needs it.

Daisy had a great vacay at Rachael's. She would love to visit again!
Rachel and Shea have to be the best couple I've ever had watch Dargo. They treated him like one of their dogs. He wasn't stressed when we picked him up. He was very much loved. I can't wait to go out of town again just so Dargo can go visit. He ran with their dogs and played. I think he misses them. Thank you so much for all the care you gave Dargo. They even got good pictures showing him happy and loved. Thanks again.

I was very worried about leaving Ebi with strangers because she had been abused before we rescued her two years ago. Rachael was gentle and kind and put us at ease immediately. She even sent us pictures and text messages throughout the week.
We were very pleased with our experience with Rachel!! And Charlie felt right at home!! They were in touch with us through the day and we could see how well he fit in with the family. We would recommend Rachel to anyone and can't thank them enough for the good care!!
