About Rafaela
I graduated in Animal Sciences👩‍🎓in Brazil and have been working in the field of animal welfare, pet nutrition, and wildlife since 2014.

I couldn't bring my 3 dogs from Brazil when I came to Australia in 2019 and I so miss them! You can be sure that I will hug, pet and care for your furry friend as if they were mine.❤

I’m settled in a cozy, secure apartment with a medium size fenced outside area.

My house is very clean (free of all parasites) and to keep this standard I only accept hosting vaccinated dogs who take worm/flea medication.🐕💫

In addition, I run a small pet food business, baking natural and safe pet treats. If your pooch loves snacks, my place is the best place to stay!🦴🥧🍓🍠 Found out more on my Instagram page: @barkingbakeryaus

Before bringing your pet, make sure her/his personal items are packed. This will help your dog adapt to the new environment and increase the comfort of your friend.

Include the following:
🐾Favourite toys
🐾Leash and collar
🐾Crate (if they like to sleep there)
🐾Shampoo and conditioner

Note: Walking and visit home services are available only for ZETLAND area.

With me, you can trust that your furry baby is in protective and loving hands.

Milly had a ball again at her second home with Rafaela. Thank you for giving her such great care.

Rafaela was fantastic. Kept us updated on Milly and how she settled in. Obviously gave her lots of love and exercise. Loved having Milly and she loved being at home with Rafaela. Made leaving her easy. Would highly recommend Rafaela.

Rafaela is the perfect minder. Knowledgeable, watchful; calm and caring- she is obviously experienced with dogs. Jasper enjoyed playing at the park and napping in a spotless apartment. Rafaela did a little bit of training as well- mindful of his issues with motorbikes. Jasper loves her high quality yummy doggy treats and can’t wait to stay with Rafaela again! Thanks so much Rafaela. 😊
