About Rachel

I am available as a live in (your home) pet sitter and I cover Preston, Leyland, Chorley and the surrounding towns & villages (this is just so I can easily make the initial meeting before the first sit. Shout if you need some help outside these areas as I still may be able to accommodate).

I like to holiday in the UK and also like the routine that comes with pets, so pet sitting in other peoples homes seems like the obvious choice. I have a basic DBS check dated December 2022 available for anyone that needs it.

I’m happy to follow whatever guidelines or expectations agreed on. So, if your house is vegan or vegetarian, I will respect that and only eat/cook what you will in your house. I can water plants, put the bins out and look after your home as well as your pets.

I run a small mortgage brokers in Corley with my husband and we live in Preston with our two teenage kids. (Our dog, two rabbits and 4 chickens also keep us busy!) For the last 24 years of being together we have always had pet's so I have experience of most household pets. (We've had a cat and hamster in the past as well as other dogs and a lot of chickens and ducks.)

I am happy to take bookings up 12 months in advance (or more if you are planning holidays or. wedding etc). This app only lets you book 6 months in advance so just message me here if you need a more advanced booking and I can advise you how to do this. Rachel 🐾

Rachel took fantastic care of Roxy for the week she looked after her, it was great seeing all the photos of what she was getting up to.

This is the first time we’ve had someone stay with our doggies while we’ve been away and we’d definitely have Rachel back again!

She met us and the dogs beforehand they loved her from the get go. The communication before and during her stay was incredible. We got pictures while we were away which put our minds at ease and showed what a lovely time the dogs were having with her.

One or two of our dogs are nervous/grumpy and she dealt with them brilliantly so would highly recommend for any doggie personality.

She left the house immaculately clean and tidy.

We can’t thank Rachel enough and would urge anyone to consider her for your dog sitting needs.
