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 is a godsend!! After recently rescuing my puggle I’ve been struggling a bit with his severe separation anxiety. Rafaela let me do a meet and greet (at no charge!) where we talked about his issues. The actual first day of dog sitting went really smoothly! She sent regular updates of his day, and I had a wonderful day knowing that he was in patient, caring hands. Can’t thank you enough!!
