Adventurous holidays for dogs :)

About Rachel

I am a keen fell walker and wild swimmer, so if your dog loves adventures then they are in the right place. I have an incredibly deep connection with animals, which is shown in my passion for training horses at liberty which really is all about working from the connection before anything else, and so I like to commit these same principles when being around dogs too.
I am offering a fun, safe and caring place for your dog to be whilst you are away on holiday... they can have a great holiday too! I have experience with a range of animals and have returning customers who love to see that their dogs have had a fab time whilst they have been away.
We are in a rural location, within a beautiful landscape of fells, rivers and woodlands where I love to explore new and exciting places to walk on a daily bases.

I ask all dog owners to provide their own food, and bring with them any toys/beds to make their dog feel as much at home as possible. I am open to letting the dogs sleep wherever they feel most comfortable, and keep them in a routine which is as close to their usual home routine as possible.

I also offer dog portraits which I draw by hand, so if you are interested whilst your dog is with me let me know :)

If you have any queries please don't hesitate to send me a message.

    Linkin (large vizsla) loved his time with Rachel, whilst we visited Center Parcs. As soon as we met her we knew linkin would be cosy and safe. She sent us lots of pictures of adventurous walks she had with him and she lives in a beautiful location. Her calm approach put us at ease and Linkin returned tired which was great!
