My name is Rachel, and as you can see from my photos I am a lover of all animals great and small!
I am a very experienced petminder, being a pet mommy to at least one little creature at all points in my life, from doggies to cats, to gerbils and rabbits, fish, axolotls, the list goes on. I have recently moved to Singapore with my longterm partner, and with our current situation, we are not in a position to have a pet of our own, even though our place is missing the homey touch of having an animal pottering around.
Hence, I have turned to petsitting!
As I said, I have experience caring for a wide range of animals. I am comfortable handling dogs of all sizes and personalities, I have personally owned a number
of dogs through the years varying from a tiny cocker spaniel to a large boisterous golden retriever. I also have experience with rescue dogs and the different challenges that come with these (Separation anxiety and PTSD in particular). I have done some basic doggy skills training with our little furbabies through the years, so if you need any help with that I'll do my best to help.
I also have experience caring for cats and small furries. I personally kept 2 bunnies and a gerbil for a number of years, I have experience in handling these comfortably and also doing what I can to provide maximum enrichment. My sister also kept guinea pigs when we were younger, so I have some experience with these too.
I am home a lot of the time at the moment, so would be at your pups beck and call. There are a number of walking routes of different lengths around my place so I can accommodate walks of from 5 minutes to 60 minutes. There is even an empty field area beside my place that tends to be nice and quiet where I can take less socially comfortable dogs, or dogs that like to chase a ball. I am flexible so we can discuss your dogs walking needs and put together a schedule to suit.
I live with my partner, who is a fellow dog lover, so there will be ample supply of attention for your pet while they stay with us. We are open to whatever sleeping arrangements your pet is most comfortable with, and will try our best to maintain their usual feeding/walking schedule to minimise any stress. We have a mid-sized balcony which some pets love or some pets hate, but we can easily just keep it closed if it's not suitable for them to be out there. We have a 2 bedroom apartment, and the pet can have the run of it apart from the spare room (which is where we hide anything not pet-friendly, rugs, spare shoes, etc.).
I'm also available for occasional dog walking if you need help with that. I can come to shadow you on a walk and then we can discuss what you would need for your dog. Also, if you are away and just need someone to stick their head in and make sure your pet is ok, I'm happy to help with that too. If you would like to know if I could care for your little furchild, just give me a shout and we'll chat it out!
I am happy to provide most services, so just let me know what you and your little friend need and we can discuss the best options. Don't be shy, just reach out, I'd be happy to hear from you!
Rachel was so helpful and accommodating to make sure that our mini Dachshund puppy felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Nothing was too much trouble and she sent lots of pictures and videos to show him having a great time. Our puppy clearly enjoyed his stay, and we couldn’t be happier to have found her! Thank you Rachel!
It was our first time leaving Casper & Shona behind. They clearly enjoyed their time with Rachel & Gary! We also got loads of photos and videos of them throughout the 3 days. It was a wonderful experience and really put our minds at ease! Your pets will surely be spoilt with so much of love & attention 💜 Thank you so much for taking such great care of both of them
