About Rachel

Welcome to Happy Paws Pet Sitting Service 'a home from home ' .My name is Rachel I live in Chester-le-Street with my husband Andy, 3 children and our beloved beagle Olgar .We are besotted dog lovers and started Happy Paws Pet Sitting when we were looking for somewhere to place Olgar when we went on holiday but couldn't bear to put her in kennels. Quite literally we believed our dog was too precious to be put in kennels. Instead we arranged for a friend to look after her in their own home so she could receive the same creature comforts and loving care that she was used to. We now offer that same service to other dog owners.
Be reassured that your dog will receive lots of love and care , tailored to yours and there requirements whilst in our home. We live in a 4 bedroomed town house with an enclosed garden in a rural area with instant access to woodland and Waldridge fells for walks. Olgar is a very easy going dog who loves to be in the company of others on walks, she is playful and not dominant when it comes to sharing toys. Your dog can be walked with Olgar or if you prefer alone. The service is flexible and collection/drop off can be arranged.
I have a lifetimes experience of caring for and owning dogs and for the past 20 years we have kept Beagles but love and welcome all dogs. Please get in touch if you have any questions or issues you would like to talk about.

    Charlie went for an overnight visit to see if he would be ok ready for our summer holidays in July. We were worried because he's always been anxious and unsettled at night. Rachel was extremely helpful and kept us updated on how he was throughout his visit, including photos. Charlie had a great time. We will definitely be booking for our summer holiday. Thanks for being such a great carer 😊🐶

    After recently using Happy Paws and Rachel to home my 2yr old lurcher whilst away, I cannot recommend their service highly enough. As this was the first time for both me and the dog using a sitter, I was nervous so I took him round a few days earlier to check out the house and meet Rachel's dog, Olgar. He liked the house, the large enclosed garden and made a new friend which put my mind at rest. Whilst away I received updates on his walks and photos of him out and about or crashed out on the sofa and he was obviously happy in the home. Will definitely use again,

    Thank you Graeme for such a lovely review we have really enjoyed having Dante this week. He has been an absolute pleasure and and I must say that he is a big miss. We hope to have the opportunity to have him back in the future.
