This afternoon was a truly special occasion. I got to follow my mom around and have her teach me about her new found passion pitching in around a small horse barn. I love learning about animals especially animals I’m not as comfortable or familiar with. We are so fortunate to get live among and share time with so many wonderful creatures.

Animals keep us humble and present and connect us to the earth and to the humans we share these experiences with. This one of the best afternoons I’ve had with my mom and just makes my admiration for her even greater. Looking forward to more days like this. ❀️ @chiechie_11 #happyheart

Why I do what I do...

I have always loved animals since I was child. I grew up in rural upstate NY where I had dogs and cats. I spent most of my childhood outside playing with my Golden Retrievers in the country side, this was my happy place. I was the go to person for family and friends when they needed a caregiver for their animals and honestly it never seems like work. I enjoy spending time with other people’s pets and you can often find me at social gatherings on the floor with the fur babies of the house. I have two dogs that I rescued Duke and Loki. I spend most of my free time hiking, walking, swimming and taking car rides out to the wilderness with them. They are my heart and make every day of my life better.

I started dog walking in Alexandria, Virginia in 2013. I worked for a company called Doggywalker.com and learned a lot about leash walking and dog behavior. I fell in love with the animals I cared for working for them and knew I could do this full time. I walked for them for 3 years until I moved to Austin, Texas.

When I moved to Austin, I fell in love with the hiking trails, food and culture. Since I had dog knowledge, I started working for a local dog kennel. They helped me learn even more about dog language and behavior. I started to think about how to take my love and passion and make it a career. I volunteered at rescues to help with transport and foster pets that needed homes. After a while, I realized I needed to start my own company doing what I know, love, and take my experience to make something for myself. This is when Ruff Life Dog Walking and Pet Sitting was born.

My company is called Ruff Life Dog Walking and Pet Sitting. I chose the name with the help of my boyfriend, Daniel. I love the play on words and because I spend so much times hiking, getting sweaty and dirty with my pups the name suits me. I am jack of all trades, while my strength is in dog walking and pet sitting, I also offer help with dog behavior to better my client's lives. I love the personal relationships I build with my clients. I enjoy helping them better their quality of life with their dog.

Rachael is definitely one of the best in the business! Dogs are certainly her passion and you can see it right away in the way she interacts with your dog and the way they respond to her. She doesn't just "do the job". Before and/or after the walk she always takes at least a few minutes to play with them and show them affection even when she's busy. The only issue you may have is jealousy because the dog gets more excited to see her than you! :-) You definitely won't find anyone better!
Best of Luck. You'll do great
