About Rachel

I have been boarding dogs, cat sitting and providing pop ins for 3 years with a 5* licence. We have always owned dogs of various breeds. 

Pets have always been in my life, work and play, from being a child. 

We have kept guineas, rabbits, mice, fish, reptiles, aviary birds, dogs,
cats, horses, and chickens. I've worked in kennels, catteries and riding
schools too. I have a small secure back garden and within a 5-minute
walk of moorland with fantastic walks and a 5-minute drive to woodlands
so there's plenty of variety for your precious pups. Caring for animals
is my joy in life and I would like to offer my home and sofa out for all
your pet's holiday needs.

I love the outdoors and walking.
I hold the legal requirements to home board up to 4 dogs and have been
inspected and issued a Defra Licence by Bradford Council. LN
64085/544915

Home Boarding Licence. ( DEFRA- The Animal Welfare (Licencing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018.

Insurance policy.

Your dog must be sociable with others, well behaved and be up to date with vaccinations, flea and worm treatments.   

£35 per day per dog. The servive I offer is Boarding in my home while you are on holiday. Occasionally I can accept a day boarder if not booked up as a one off. The dogs boarding live in my home, not kennels, they have the "run off the place". They are allowed on the furniture. You can bring a bed / blanket / something familiar, I have beds etc too. They sleep any where they choose, their bed bed, one of my dog beds, curled up with each other, on the sofa or on my bed....they choose where they are comfortable.

 We take two walks per day, up to an hour a day depending on breed requirement, weather etc. The dogs play in the garden with me and each other. In summer the back door is open to secure garden so they can choose to be in or out. If it is exceptionally hot they are walked very early and evening in the coolest parts of the day. As per licnce regulations you supply dog food to keep your dog on the same diet so their tummy is not upset. See my calendar for availability. Dogs are seperated at feeding times behind the baby gates. 

For cat pop in visits I feed them, clean litter trays, check all are eating healthy, un injured and give them a cuddle if they come for one. The back garden has astro turf, a five foot fence and a locked gate. I will stay around 20 to 30 minutes depending on requirements and amount of things to do at your request.

There is cctv front and back. I do not have another job. I spend all my time with the dogs, walking, feeding, grooming, playing, washing bedding, bathing dogs when needed. Dogs are dryed after walks if raining or been in a stream.Cleaned off if muddy. I only leave the dogs to pop to the shop if I am confident they will not be anxious. In that case dogs are seperated by baby gates in seperate rooms. My main food shop comes to my door. There is a lot of planning ahead to ensure your dogs are safe, happy and healthy. Dogs are cared for the most part 24/7. My licence dictates that dogs are not left unattended for more than 3 hours, quite honestly there is no way I would leave dogs from different homes unattended for longer than 30 minutes even though i seperate them. 

I have a dog sitter to come and sit with the dogs if nessecary and an emergency contact can be called in too. I am canine first aid trained, have all the required fire safety equipment. There are no children in my home, no dogs of my own, no catts, no small animals. I board up to 4 dogs at a time.

I can administer oral medications and give insulin injections. 

In all cases I will need to see an up to date vaccination card and require your vets details incase of emergency. 

Please see photo gallery to see dogs living and co habiting together, out on walks, snuggled on the sofa with me etc. Your dog must get on with others in general eg when you are out on walks, dogs will either play together or not bother with another dog, maybe give a warning and move on. As long as your dog is not aggresive to other dogs or humans they can board here. I arrange to meet you and your dog as per licence rules before accepting a booking.   

I am available all day/ eve. 

I look forward to having a chat and to discuss your pet's requirements
and to answer any questions or concerns you have. 

Lets make an appointment for you and your dog to visit before committing to a holiday booking.
Whilst you are away I will send updates and pictures.

I advertise elsewhere and have a regular client base so please contact me asap to avoid disapointment.
