About Rafaela

Hi,

My name is Rafaela, I'm a veterinarian in Brazil and I've been in Ireland for 1 month and I came to Ireland to study English (for 8 months). I'm looking for a job with animals because it would be ideal for me so I could be in connection with animals, which are my great passion, because at the moment I can't work in Ireland on my area of graduation. I have many years of experience taking care of dogs, cats and horses, promoting play, training, walks, feeding, bathing... both professionally and personally.

In Brazil I grew up taking care of animals and there I have 2 large dogs, 1 cat and 1 horse, my mother is taking care of them while I am studying English here in Ireland. I got experience in this field because I always had dogs, cats or horses, my parents always gave me the responsibility to take care of them. With that, the love for animals grew more and more and became my profession, veterinary. I'm in the country to follow another dream, to improve my english and see the world and learn about different cultures. But I would like to continue working with pets, because with them I always feel better and I try to provide the best for them.

About my services:

• I'm usually available in the morning and evening; • I have experience administering medications (oral and injectable); • I know how to teach sitting, lying down, pawing and some obedience training.

During home visits:

• I stay with the pet for at least 1 hour (but time with is negotiable); • I will feed the pets, play, clean what they get dirty, take them for a walk, brush... (whatever is necessary or that the owner requests previously).

Dog walker:

• Tours last at least 1 hour (negotiable); • Includes: walks, games, affection, snacks, conversations, socializing with other pets... • Locations: parks, streets, forests (places that the owners ask for).

House sitting:

• Time it's negotiable with the owners, depending on how much them needs me to stay in the house with the pet; • I will be sending photos and videos of the pets while I'm at the house; • Always in contact with the owners.

Any questions, you can talk to me. I will love to answer and also meet your pets. I will take care of your pets as if they were my own, giving them all affection and love.
