About Rachel

SERVICES

Home-boarding - Small Neutered Dogs Only

I mind small dogs in my safe and warm house. I have a large, totally secure garden where your dog can play with my gang. Your dog will be treated as one of my own.

Daycare - Small Neutered Dogs Only

Have a long day at work or an event you can't miss? Book a day of daycare with me. Your dog will have a great time doing a variety of fun activities.

Dog Walking - Small/Medium Dogs

I walk two dogs at a time only. I walk small/medium size dogs. I can work on basic training such as walking nicely on lead, automatic sit when waiting to cross road etc.

Home visits - Any Size Dogs and Cats

For dogs, this can include toilet break, mental and physical games in your house or garden, and feeding if required. For cats, this can include feeding and watering your cat, playtime and cuddles, switching on/off lights and taking the post in etc.

ABOUT ME

I have been working as a dog trainer for six years, though I have been training my own dogs for a lot longer than that! Currently, I am the proud dog mom to SEVEN dogs. At this stage, we have tried our hand at almost every dog sport: tricks training, agility, flyball, nosework etc. Our current obsession is canine freestyle (doggy dancing) and we hope to travel to the UK to compete there next season. I hold a Diploma in Canine Behaviour and Training and have attended many workshops and seminars covering a wide-range of dog-related topics.

As you can tell, I am completely obsessed with dogs. In fact, I love cats too and have two rescues, Shelli and Venus. Animals bring so much joy and unconidtional love and they constantly remind us to live in the present moment. You can count on me to care for your pets as lovingly as I care for my own!

Rachel you are a superstar! A 5 star doggy hotel for my 5 star little princess toy poodle. All her needs catered for as she is a very pampered pooch, homemade meals and to be allowed on Rachel’s bed, definitely a home away from home. Also I can’t forget to mention Rachel’s seven gorgeous dogs who made Mimi’s stay extra special 🥰
