About Rachel

Please note: ignore times - we are always flexible with this. Fridays are normally anytime after work unless we are showing as available on the Thursday too.

I have always loved dogs and I am used to borrowing dogs from others or dog sitting when friends/family have gone on holiday. We have a cheeky young schneagle (min schnauzer x beagle) who is approximately two years old. She loves other dogs and enjoys playing around with them. This is one of the main reasons as to why we do dog buddy as well as enjoying meeting other breeds and characters.

We have a long garden to keep a dog entertained throughout the day and in the summer we normally keep the patio doors open. We live local to lovely walks including Hailey park and the Taff trail. We use the weekend as a good excuse to take our dog and yours somewhere a bit more exciting like Barry beach or Comeston Lakes.

We work during the week so only do dog boarding or sitting from Friday-Sunday. We sometimes can do other dates like bank holidays or when we have time off but please check our calendar for this. We do this as a hobby rather than a weekly job and that's why our calendar is often so limited! On the weekends we are able to provide a 24/7 "holiday" like experience for your dog and we would treat them like they were our own (very spoilt!).

We can offer pick up / drop off at an additional cost.

We are looking forward to hearing from you,
Rachel & Alex

    This was our first DogBuddy experience and we were blown away. Rachel’s pre overnight communication was excellent so we already felt we knew each other before meeting. When I dropped Lola off everyone clicked straight away. Riley and Lola couldn’t help themselves with joy. Rachel’s home is lovely and her welcome, manner and for want of a better word her professionalism outstanding. We wouldn’t hesitate to book with her again. In fact we’re now looking for an excuse to return to Cardiff. Thank you Rachel and Riley.

    Thank you so much for this review- I really appreciate it. Riley would love to see Lola again and we will definitely let you know when we come near you this summer. It was great to meet you all. Please keep in touch - Lola is going to be a lovely dog!
