About Rachel

Hi there!

My name is Rachel, I'm 25 and I have been a pet sitter on Pawshake for 4 years now. I am experienced with caring for many different types of animals as I have grown up having dogs, a cat, fish and even two rats! In 2014 while living with a family in Spain I also helped to look after a love bird and had the pleasure of raising a baby cockateil.

More recently my husband and I have adopted a kitten called Willow and often look after and walk my parents' two dogs; Pearl & Dime. We are based in Keynsham and am lucky to live next to a lot of open woodland - perfect for dog walking!

What I love most about pet sitting is having the opportunity to meet and get to know a variety of much loved pets while at the same time helping to put their owners at ease while away. If you would like to know more or to see if I would be a good match for your furry family member, feel free to message me or arrange a free meet and greet.

Rachel came to visit and immediately made friends with our cat. She sent lots of photos and messages. We felt confident that Harvey was being looked after while we were away. We have already booked Rachel again.

Specific Skills

I speak English & French & Spanish
+10 years of experience

I am very experienced with walking dogs since the age of 11. Our family have always had rescue dogs so I am used to attending to any abnormal or shy behaviour due to stress. The two dogs we own now for example were initially very nervous of every other dog they saw and would instantly bark and raise their fur in defense when in contact with another one. The female also had to wear a muzzle at the rescue centre as she would lash out at her brother when she became stressed. After just a few weeks with us however, she no longer needed to wear it as the stability and love we provided transformed both of them into very playful and happy dogs with us and with other dogs! They are now spoilt with long walks, love and lots of cuddles!

I am also expereinced with birds somewhat as I have helped raise a baby cockatiel which involved preparing her food, handfeeding her and helping her with her very first flight! As well as looking after a lovebird for a couple of months.

What's more, as previously said, a couple of years ago we owned two rats and I am not at all afraid of them or put off by them, I think they are rather cute!

I can assure you that your animal will be in good hands with me and I will be delighted to meet all their needs and your requests. I know that during your absence they will be missing you very much and may feel a bit stressed, therefore I will aim to help your animal feel as comfortable, at ease and happy as I can. :)
