Y'all 5 stars doesn't even begin to explain how great Rachel is! I swear our pup comes home and misses Rachel more than she missed us. So nice to have someone in the city you can trust to take great care of your dog. Don't be fooled by others with high ratings, Rachel is THE BEST!!

Rachel was so kind to take my dog on short notice. Her office is near Madison Park and dog friendly, she send lovely pictures of my dog enjoying a day at work :) She was super easy to work with, especially on short notice and I would be happy to book with her again!

Puppy Palace Vacancies!!

I’m a patient, flexible and fun dog sitter who puts my clients needs first — both canine and human.

I love all animals with a true passion. I’ve always felt an empathy and connection with animals, especially growing up with dogs. My first dog was a Pomeranian named Tyler — I still remember how sad I was when he died (I was only three). Since then my family always had dogs, usually rescues at varying ...

When Rachel watches your pet

If your pup is good with other dogs, I always plan at least one trip to the dog park during the stay. Outside of that, I love playing fetch or tug o war. If your pup is a lounger, I have been known to give amazing belly rubs or back scratches!

I have two roommates. One loves dogs but has never owned one herself, so she gets super excited when one comes to stay with us. My other roommate is a proud Pug owner and loves to cuddle with any pets that I watch. They are willing to provide any help needed when I am not home. When I'm home, I stay as the primary caregiver — but it never hurts to have more dog lovers lending an extra hand. We also have a Betta fish named Buddha that has been in our family for 4 years. (Buddha doesn’t mind dogs).

During the week, I work 20 minutes away from 9 to 6. Depending on your dog’s needs, I come home for a walk midday during lunch. I try to watch dogs that come from families with similar work schedules during the week, since pups will be used to my schedule. On weekends, I am home all day for playtime or relaxing. Whatever your pup desires!
