Hi, i'm Rachel, i'm 30 years old and live with my Husband and our dog, Toby - he's a friendly 6 year old Cavapoo. We have a 3 bedroom semi-detached house with a good sized fully enclosed garden.
I've been dog-sitting for around 2 years now, I absolutely love it and have got a few 'regulars' now who stay with us frequently throughout the year.
I do work full time (Mon - Fri) but always endevour to take annual leave when i'm pet sitting, the maximum time your dog will be left alone for is 3 hours. I always keep Toby and any other dogs separate when unattended, but it's of course important your dog is well socialised and gets on well with other dogs if you want them to come and stay!
I always replicate your routine with your dog as much as possible, so how many walks they have, what times you feed them, their nighttime routine, all stays pretty much the same.
I've looked after puppies, older dogs, and dogs with health conditions that require medicine at certain times of day. I've also look after dogs with a variety of different diets, from raw fed to specialist diets for dogs with digestive issues.
If you'd like to know more please get in touch and i'll happily answer any questions you may have!
