About Raquel

Hi! My name is Raquel, I am a biologist and now I am studying Companion Animal Services, so I am fascinated by all kinds of animals.

* I have CPR certification for pets and also Police Check.

I am also a volunteer at Dog's Refuge Home, so I could gain more experience with all kinds of dogs and learn more techniques to look after them.

Through this app, I hope to have the pleasure of walking, meeting and sitting much more pets. Going on holiday and leaving your pets can be very daunting but I'm here to help and make you more comfortable with this because I'll take care of your pet like it's mine. I will give them the love and affection they deserve in their own home and routine. I will keep you updated on his feeding habits, sent text messages and photographs while you are away.

I can also do something else for you when you are gone, like water your plants, and bring in your mail/newspaper. With pleasure. :-)

Home boarding: I can also take care of your pet in my place if you want and my partner and I love to have them with us! :-) I have a grassy backyard with a good space for the them to play.

Let me know if you have any questions. I am looking forward to hearing from you and to meeting your pet!

Arlo was satisfactorily looked after but unfortunately communication was difficult. I hope this is improved on for future bookings with other people.

Once again Raquel did an amazing job of taking care of our Charlie. We have no reservations in sending her to her new home away from home. We can highly recommend Raquel, and will be using her services in the future. ✨✨✨✨✨
