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.

Rafaela was amazing! She was very patient with my dog introducing him slowly to other dogs and making the first day care experience very smooth and easy. She kept me updated with videos and pictures. I’m very happy how she handled the first day care experience for my dog. I’ll definitely book Rafaela again.
