About Rachel

Hi my name is Rachel and I am a 20 year old who recently completed year 12 in Geelong. I have also completed my Certificate II in Animal Studies at the Gordon. I have always been very passionate about animals and wish to continue this passion outside of school by becoming either a dog trainer or creating my own dog daycare business. About a year ago I had been doing work experience at Jimmy's Dog Training and have loved working with many different breeds of dogs with many different behaviours. Here I gained knowledge and experience with social and behavioural training, puppy classes, agility course, and sheep herding. I also worked closely with rescue dogs that had behavioural problems and needed retraining so that they could be rehomed. For the past couple of years I have started my own business to include house visiting, dog walking, feeding and brushing, and wish to gain more work in these areas. I have grown up with an abundance of pets and have first hand experience with dogs, rabbits, birds and fish. I am very reliable and trustworthy, and will treat your pets with lots of love and kindness and your home with the greatest respect. My dog walking service includes 1 hour sessions; either near your home or, if you prefer, I can drive them to a park, the river, or even the beach at a minimal extra cost. Pet visiting will include visiting your home once or twice a day as requested, feeding, change water, clean bedding area, and most importantly give your pet a thorough play and exercise session with lots of attention and cuddles. If required, I am happy to also give them a brush, at a minimal extra cost. A walking session at a reduced price is also offered. Pet sitting services include the same options as pet visiting whilst I stay at your home. I will look after your home and be very respectful of your privacy and belongings, whilst ensuring your pets are happy and given all the love and attention they deserve. Walks are also included in this cost.

Really impressed by Rachel, her attitude and treatment of Truffles. Truffles was really happy and healthy when we came back. We would be more than happy to re-book with Rachel again !!
