About Rafaela
Professional full time petsitter, reliable and B. Animal Sciences degree.

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 diligent to set up the initial meet and greet with Rudy to make sure he was comfortable in socialising with the other dogs. During the daycare, she provided lots of photos and videos throughout the day and all the pets looked very happy at her place. Thanks for taking care of Rudy, he had lots of fun playing with his new friends!

My two boys had the best time with Rafaela. One is quite anxious, but he quickly settled in at her place and judging from the pictures and videos, he was completely at home. 100% recommend!! :)

Rafaela is just lovely! My boys had a lovely day and the chance to socialise with other pupperinos of a similar size. Lots of photos during the day and regular updates which was great. Great doggy friendly space. Will definitely be a repeat customer :)
