Rachel took care of our two boys, Santana and Joey. She cared for them as if they were her own. They gots lots of love and snuggles. Her home was clean and had a huge fenced in yard. Rachel kept me updated with a synopsis and photos each day. She even helped me extend one day when I miss calculated our return date. She will be our go-to for any and all future stays.

We are so thankful to have found Rachel and Kris to watch our dog, Cooper! He stayed with them while we were vacationing out of the country for a week and a half. Cooper was on vacation himself while he was there! He loved her dogs and their back yard. Rachel sent us daily updates with tons of pictures of all the fun he was having. She really made him feel like he was part ...

1/2 Acre Fully Fenced Doggy Heaven!

Hi! I'm Rachel, a life long dog lover in West Alexandria. In addition to owning two dogs, I also foster puppies rescued by Wolf Trap Animal Rescue throughout the year and help them find forever homes. Dogs are what brings me joy!

I work in a remote role for my job in cyber security for a large consulting firm. My remote position allows me to be home virtually all day to keep your dog company. ...

What Rachel would like to know about your dog

I'd love to know more about your furry friend and your preferences on sleeping arrangements, food allergies/favorite treats, favorite toys, how they like to play, any resource guarding issues or things to avoid, and what makes them feel most comfortable.

When Rachel watches your pet

The number one activity here is yard time! Our back yard is a half acre of fenced grass for your dog to sniff and explore. Our Chuckit tennis ball thrower gets a daily workout, so if your dog loves to fetch, they’ll have a blast for sure! There is a two mile loop through our neighborhood that we love to walk the dogs on when the weather is good. When we aren't adventuring, everyone is invited up to the couches for cuddles and belly rubs :)
