Rachel was great! This was the second time my dog, Chicken, stayed with her. She took chicken last minute and sent lots of pics over the weekend! I know Chicken had a great time with her!

5 star review, as always. Rachel is always flexible and great with our high energy gsp! We love that he can go back to the same place over and over and Rachel treats him like her own. We appreciate her care so much!

Rachel was fantastic with our dog Winnie. Winnie had a great time playing in the yard and with other dogs who were staying at the house that weekend. I appreciated that she took the time to do a meet and greet to assess our dog. Rachel's overall thoughtfulness and careful considerations made me confident our dog was in great hands.

Dog eutopia w/ fenced in yard

I grew up around dogs, and continued my love of them into adulthood. I have had dobermans, and handled other working breads. I currently have a 6yo female Ridgeback who gets along with all dogs, even the grumpy ones. She is very calm and gentle - loves small dogs, isn't overly eager with shy dogs, and calmly keeps her distance from dogs that like their own space. She will play if provoked but is fine ...

What Rachel would like to know about your dog

1) Would the pup want to eat my cat
2) Can I use a crate when I am gone
3) Is the pup an escape artist from crates, leashes/collars/harnesses, fences, doors, etc.,

Knowing these things allow me to gauge the type of pups I'd be offering to watch, and to ensure the safety of my crazy cat, as well as the safety of all the pups.

All dogs must be current on state mandatory vaccinations (e.g. Rabies, etc.) and on flea/tick and HW preventative. With respect to vaccinations that are not state mandatory, please do your research and discuss with your vet. I sit multiple clients pups at a time, they may have access to standing water in the yard and Umstead, and I foster dogs, pulled from shelters or as strays.

When Rachel watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I am on a dead-end street, that has access to a subdivision for an easy 3 mile round trip walk, or I can take them into Umstead, assuming they don't mind a quick walk on the main street. The more active they can be, the more active the stay will be. I have a nice sized fenced in space, that is specifically for the dogs to run, chase, and play in. I try to correct digging, but other than that, I allow them to be goofy dogs in the yard. The space is for them!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
I have 4 large dog crates, a dog only room off the living room, and my master bedroom access if they are cat friendly. If the dogs are not good with crates and can be trusted to stay out - without escaping or bothering my cat, I have extra tall gates used to keep pups safely separated and comfortable.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I work during the week days, but I devote my non-working hours to be with the pups. They get plenty of activity in and out of the house.
