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.
Your dog/s will have free run of the house as do my two! She/he can sleep anywhere they feel comfortable. I will keep your dog brushed & well groomed during their stay plus lots of cuddles. Your pooch will be pampered like one of the family, as It is important to me that your dog/s have a positive time here. I will keep you regularly updated & send photos via DogBuddy, WhatsApp or Email. I would love to meet you & pooch/es before the booking for peace of mind that all the dogs get on. You are also welcome to visit my home for a chat to see if suitable & to help your pooch get acquainted to a dog loving home from home. 🤗
I am free most of the time for dog walking but availability for boarding maybe blanked out on my calendar.Weekend only bookings £33 per night.

I walk all sorts of ages & sizes of dogs but prefer small-med dogs for boarding/dc. Healthy neutered dogs over 1 year old, of good temperament & are completely housetrained are welcome. I only have 1-2 dogs boarding at any one time from the same family so please book early.
I have Cliverton insurance so your dog can walk off lead but only on your written request.
Pickup/drop off service may incur extra costs depending on locality.

    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.
