About Raquel
I am passionate about learning how to better care and understand our animal companions, I pay strong attention to your pet's needs and make sure they are at ease and happy. Currently I am working towards becoming a dog trainer and behaviourist, thanks to this I am able to offer help with basic training. As my experience goes, for years I have owned dogs, walked dog, pet sit and I am devoted to foster caring as much as I am able to. Foster dogs are my best teachers.
Thanks to my work with dogs needing to learn about house-life I am used to finding alternative ways to approach issues and I have gotten pretty good at making home-made toys and games to stimulate and entertain dogs

Throughout the years, I sadly have had to deal with a number of pet-related emergencies. That has made me rather handy at applying first aid and providing long-term care. In addition, I have experience with older pets due to my last two dogs living to 15 and 16, on their last years as senior dogs they had physical difficulties that implied medication, slow walks, physically moving them around and having patience (with lots of cuddles!).

I can highly recommend Raquel as a pet sitter. She has an excellent rapport with animals. She looked after our Ringo and even texted a photo of him very happily snoozing when I enquired how he was going. She is trustworthy and reliable. I have used her a number of times now when we go away and feel very confident Ringo is in good hands
