About Raquel
Hi! My name is Raquel, I am a biologist and have Certificate III in Companion Animal Services, so I am fascinated by all kinds of animals.

* I have CPR certification for pets

I used to be a volunteer at Dog's Refuge Home, so I could gain more experience with all kinds of dogs and learn more techniques to look after them.

Going on holiday and leaving your pets can be very daunting but I'm here to help and make you more comfortable with that. I will give them the love and affection they deserve in my home. I will keep you updated, sent pictures and videos while you are away.

I have done a lot of walking and visiting services too, but at the moment I am just doing Home Boarding, so I take care of your pet in my place. My family will love to have them with us! :-)

I have a grassy and fully enclosed backyard with a good space for them to explore, run and play. I don't use pesticides, so don't worry. The backyard has a covered area that provides also a good shade for your dog.

All dogs have complete access to both house and backyard. They can sleep either inside or outside. I fit in with what you do at home to keep them in their routine.

As I am constantly looking after dogs, it's important that your dog gets along with other dogs. So keep that in mind before you get in contact, please.

Also when you contact me, please, tell me a little bit about your pet, like their behaviour and habits.

*I schedule things back to back, so please don't be late for meet and greets, drop offs or pickups.

Let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you and to meeting your pet! :-)

Raquel and her family provided wonderful care for our rascally young Labradoodle. Provided regular updates with photos. He came home happy and exhausted- perfect! We would highly recommend her!

Only the 2nd time in 2 years we have left our beautiful golden retriever Indy and we couldn’t be happier with Raquel. Raquel was a lovely lady and right from when we dropped Indy I could tell she was going to be well looked after. Loved the daily updates and photos - it was a great touch. Couldn’t recommend Raquel enough and would not hesitate to use her again. 🥰
