Howdy, my name is Rachael and to say I love animals is an understatement! We have a puppy called Pearl and from the moment I saw her, she instantly had my heart!
I understand how our pets bring so much joy and unconditional love! Having a puppy who completely relies on us, makes me understand how others feel about their fur babies, pets are members of the family & should be treated like gold. I can identify with the fears and worries of having a fur baby and wanting the best for her. I know what it’s like to have to leave work in the morning & it feels like I’m leaving a toddler alone; I know those feelings of guilt.
I know what it’s like trying to find that “right person” to bring her on a walk when I am unable to, looking for somebody you can trust to care and love your pet whilst you're not there; this is the main reason why I decided to offer my services.
My pet service: I am happy to walk your dog(s) or to visit your pet(s) at home.
I have a car so I am able to drive as needed.
My dog walking service; the walk lasts for one hour; if you like I will be happy to walk your dog alone or if you would like to socialise your dog, I can walk your dog with my puppy pearl (bishon frise), it’s up to you. My Home Visit service; I provide company for your Pet for an hour; during that time I will also ensure that your pet has fresh water and food and will clean up after your pet if necessary and of course we will have play time too. Some people avail of this service if they are going away, instead of using kennels, so pets can stay in the comfort of their home which reduces the anxiety and provides familiar surroundings; a home visit can consist of one or two home visits on a day, depending on your needs.
Apart from dogs, I also have experience with cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, budgies and gold fish. I am a true pet lover so would be willing to care for any type of pet!
For the moment I am available Monday-Friday for dog walking adventures or home visits for any pet. I am free for home visits however on most evenings (excluding Wednesdays) and some weekends too, please don’t hesitate to contact me to enquire. To conclude, I understand that your pet is a family member, so I hope to put your mind at ease and to assure you that I will treat your pet like my precious Pearl when in my care!
delighted to have found Rachael, a weekend away for us can be hard on our dogs who are always happier and healthier at home. Rachael was very accomodating to all their needs, the older dog required a little extra care, and made sure we get regular updates. I have no reservations recommending Rachael and hope my dogs have the pleasure of her company again!
With having an anxious doggy we couldn't put him into kennels when we had to go away and the least stressful option was for him to be minded at home in his own environment. We needed someone to visit him at home and to walk him and decided to give pawshake a try. Our dog is very wary of strangers but at our 'meet and greet' with Rachael I was reassured as Rachael has a lovely way about her and our dog responded well to herand was very at ease with her much quicker than he does normally with strangers so Rachael definitely had a good way with dogs and he could sense that she is a kind person. I have to say our dog was very well looked after and we got regular updates which was very reassuring. He was very calm and relaxed when we got back and to me this was the biggest indicator of a very well cared for doggy while we were away in what could have been a stressful separation for him. I would have no problem recommending Rachael for walks and home visits and I would definitely trust her with our home and beloved pet again .
