Service Description
My name is Rachel, and I'm a 21 year old student who has completed her studies in Companion Animal Services, worked at a dog groomers and volunteered as a foster carer.

I am an animal lover, and caring for your loving pet would be my absolute pleasure! I am qualified and very experienced in the animal industry so I can guarantee your animal's wellbeing is in my utmost regard.

As of 2017, I have completed my Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services at Box Hill Institute TAFE. This course has provided me with many skills in the companion animal industry including, maintaining and monitoring animal health and wellbeing, managing compliance in the companion animal industry, managing companion animal breeding, providing basic care of dogs, domestic cats, freshwater fish, mammals, rodents, rabbits and non-venomous reptiles, as well as identifying and responding to animal behaviour and assisting with conditioning animals. This means I am also qualified to provide basic training at your request.
My previous job included working as a dog bather at a dog groomers. If you would like for me to brush your pet during your pets stay or even clip their toenails, I am trained and happy to do this upon request

I am currently located in the inner-western suburbs of Melbourne. I live with my family and my dog whippet Bowie, we are all animal lovers and would love to mind for your pet. I have a fully enclosed house with a back yard, and I am also located very close to a large park with lots of other dogs that I am happy to walk your pet in. I am also available to travel within surrounding areas if you would like me to care for your pet in your own home!

In regards to yours and my pets safety, I do request meet and greets before going ahead with any bookings.

If you think I would be the perfect candidate to care for your pet please shoot me a message. I would love to hear from you!
