About Rachel

I am from a dog loving family and have always looked after pet dogs growing up & then had my own rescue lab X dog Jasper who lived til he was 13years. We now have 2 gorgeous cocker spaniels called Jack & Daisy.
I have spent most of my working life in the catering industry working as a chef. Now at age 54years young & retired from work I’d like to devote all of my time to pampering and caring for dogs and yours will be most welcome. I live in a semi-detached house with a secure fenced garden situated in a quiet cul-de-sac. Our favourite local walking locations include Sutton Park which is 10 minutes drive away or if your dog/s gets car sick Aldridge Cricket field and golf course is only a short walk away from my home. All walks will be tailored to your dogs needs eg. long 2hr or short 30mins & can be walked in your local area.
I love walking & I love dogs so my walks with my 4 legged friends are what make me happy. I am very experienced in walking in all conditions & with different breeds so rest assured your pooches safety is of paramount importance to me & I will take all necessary precautions to keep them safe.

I can walk your dog alone or with other dogs (4 max)
I have a canine first aid certificate & carry a first aid kit on every walk.

Puppy visits: I can give your puppy company, lots of cuddles, feed, fresh water, clean up any accidents, a short walk ( if fully vaccinated) socialise with other friendly dogs & reinforce basic training, to break up a long day alone.
I am trustworthy & reliable (references available)
I have Cliverton insurance so your dog can walk off lead but only on your written request. My insurance covers loss of house keys/replacement locks & transporting dogs to walking locations & back.
I’d love hear from you & perhaps meet up for a chat about your requirements. (no obligation)

    Rachel was an absolute life saver and amazing dog buddy to our cocker spaniel Alfie. We booked fairly last minute and Rachel agreed to have Alfie overnight. Rachel allowed Alfie to have two doggy dates prior, throughout gave excellent communication (including pictures) and was extremely professional. Things were so good we were worried Alfie wouldn't want to come home ;-) thanks so much Rachel!

    Elsie spent a lovely day with Rachel, she played with Jack and Daisy and was taken for a walk in the park. I was so very impressed with Rachel; how very professional and totally dog focused she is.I was sent update pictures throughout the day and I felt totally confident that Elsie was being cared for by the best. I would highly recommend Rachel to any dog owner who wants their dog to be looked after by a true professional.
