About Rachel

I live in Prestwich in Manchester. I have a little dog of my own that delights in the company of other dogs. He's an 8 year old cross breed but he still acts like a playful puppy. I'm an experienced owner of lots of breeds of dog and make all dogs welcome in my home as part of the family. I am active person and I do a lot of long distance running so i'm happy for your pootch to come along (depending on their health and fitness level). I live close to Heaton park and I have a little car so if your dog is Ok to travel then we can go further afield for some adventures. I work from home so i'm alongside the dog the entire time and they wouldn't be left to their own devices! I'm a responsible dog owner and a dog lover and would treat your dog as I treat my own. I do ask that your dog be friendly with other dogs so that my old chap doesn't have a nasty time! I'm happy to follow any walking routine or schedule that you have set up and my job gives me the flexibility to do so. I've been informally sitting for friends for many years so I can provide references from the owners and happy dogs that have spent time with me before if it gives you peace of mind. I'm also happy for you to come for a visit and meet my pootch to see if the dogs get along OK and if your dog is happy here before you leave them. There is nobody else in my household so if your dog isn't great with children then they are still welcome here.

    We left Cooper with Rachel for a couple of days. Cooper is a friendly dog but timid at the same so we were not sure how he would get on with Louis. Louis is a gorgeous friendly dog so we need not have worried. I could see that Cooper had a wonderful time and we are booking Rachel again for our next holiday. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rachel.

    Rupert has stayed with Rachel twice now and both times has come back a very happy dog. Wouldn't hesitate to leave him with her again, or recommend her to other dog owners.

    Holly had a fantastic time with Rachel and her dog Louis. I was worried she wouldn't want to come home. It was a real home from home for her and from meeting Rachel I was more than happy to leave Holly when we went on holiday. I wouldn't think twice about leaving Holly with Rachel again and I know Holly would love it.
