Rachel stepped in and really did a fantastic job caring for my 17.5 year old blue heeler!! Starting with an enjoyable and successful meet&greet visit plus two days of care. A person could not ask for more conscientious care giving. Thank you Rachel

When Rachel watches your pet

If I'm watching your dogs on Friday or the weekend, I'd love to take them on hikes or adventures to the river!
