About Raquel

Hi! My name is Raquel, I am a biologist and have Certificate III in Companion Animal Services, so I am fascinated by all kinds of animals.

* I have CPR certification for pets

I used to be 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.

Going on holiday and leaving your pets can be very daunting but I'm here to help and make you more comfortable with that. I will give them the love and affection they deserve in my home. I will keep you updated, sent pictures and videos while you are away.

I have done a lot of walking and visiting services too, but at the moment I am just doing Home Boarding, so I take care of your pet in my place. My family will love to have them with us! :-)

I have a grassy and fully enclosed backyard with a good space for them to explore, run and play. I don't use pesticides, so don't worry. The backyard has a covered area that provides also a good shade for your dog.

All dogs have complete access to both house and backyard. They can sleep either inside or outside. I fit in with what you do at home to keep them in their routine.

As I am constantly looking after dogs, it's important that your dog gets along with other dogs. So keep that in mind before you get in contact, please.

Also when you contact me, please, tell me a little bit about your pet, like their behaviour and habits.

*I schedule things back to back, so please don't be late for meet and greets, drop offs or pickups.

Let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you and to meeting your pet! :-)

Thank you Raquel for taking great care of my two Bostons. Raquel is a very caring lady, and my dogs came back happy and healthy from their stay. She is great with communication and sends plenty of pictures. I would definitely recommend and will hope to have my pups stay again in the future.

My dog has been travelling with us and therefore has a little separation anxiety. Raquel took him into her home and cared for him in way that made him feel like part of the family. Thank you for looking after my boy Raquel, we will be back.
