About Rachel

Hi there!

I’m Rachel, country bumpkin at heart and have grown up around dogs, cats, horses and smaller furry creatures. I also used to teach horse riding and love dog walking, hiking and cuddles. I have owned cats, dogs and horses from childhood until 2016 when I moved from the UK to Australia, including rescue dogs suffering from PTSD, severe separation anxiety, ghastrointestinal issues/sensitivity, and epilepsy.

I have also worked on several farms, horse riding schools, and have had work experience at 2 different vets during university.

I have trained puppies from the age of 6 weeks and have looked after toy dogs, giant dogs, and most of the breeds in between!

I moved to Sydney 3 years ago and miss dogs and cats (and animals generally) very much – I have loved using my free time to pet sit.

I have been sitting for a wide range of cats and dogs for the last 18 months; please see my reviews for more information .

I am mobile across most of Sydney and will always meet you and your pet before any sitting takes place, in order for you and your pet(s) to get to know me, for you to ask any questions and so that you can tell me all about your pet / make sure I am fully prepared for sitting ahead of the booking. I work 9-5 from Monday – Thursday and I house sit 7 days a week (as long as your pet is comfortable being alone whilst I work), as well as come for house visits or dog walk outside of these times.

If I sit for you, you will receive very regular text, photo and video updates of how your pet(s) and I are getting along!

I have a Police certificate from the AFP and have gone through all criminal record, health and background checking in late 2018 ahead of successfully becoming an Australian Resident.

If you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to reach out to me, unless I am out of the country I will respond to you within a few hours.

Rachel is amazing. She managed my menagerie of creatures very calmly and reliably. I would definitely recommend her.
