My name is Rachel and I am originally from Glasgow, Scotland. I'm currently broadening my work and life experiences hence being in the beautiful country of Australia.
A little background about me... I have always been a dog lover. My aunt and uncle are both dog breeders back home so their love for dogs rubbed off on me from an early age. My Uncle was winner of Best in Show at Crufts in 2005 and recently was awarded best in the toy category in 2016 with Eric one of his many Pekingese. Therefore his knowledge and skills have been a huge influence on me. During my teens I would spend my weekends at their kennels where I would care for, walk and clean the dogs - just as a hobby!
Growing up a little and being more responsible I was lucky to then be an owner of my own little baby - Missy, a black cross collie (in pictures.) We rehomed her when she was 2 and have had her 11 years. Unfortunately Missy was diagnosed with epilepsy 5 years ago and has been on medication ever since. I truly understand the importance of managing and caring for animals with additional needs.
My older sister went off travelling and we then adopted Jack - a 6 year old Shih Tzu. He brought a lot of excitement to the house as he has a very cheeky personality!
I am so passionate about caring for dogs. I am experienced in caring, walking and nurturing dogs.
I live in St Kilda, one minute walk away from the st Kilda Botanical Gardens and within ten minutes of St Kilda beach. My location is ideal for fun, exciting doggy adventures!
Our home is pet friendly and set up to be a relaxed, welcoming home away from home for your pet.
I am available all day Monday to Sunday. Ideal for those working all day and needing their pets legs stretched during the day!
I do not have a car at the moment so pick up and drop off is not available. However, I can walk to dog sit or walk depending on distance.
I can provide daily updates and pictures of your dogs vacation if requested.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or queries.
I would require information about your pup pre boarding to ensure that all your dogs needs are being met i.e behaviour, size, requirements etc.
You would be required to provided your dogs own food, lesh and if he/she requires their own bed to sleep on. As dogs are familiar with their own dog foods I don't want to disrupt their routine.
As they say,
"dogs do speak but only to those who will listen"
Looking forward to hearing for you.
