About Rachael

Kia ora! My name is Rachael, I am a 29-year-old living in Grey Lynn.

Check out my most recent reviews for the Christmas and New year period just gone by!

I am a writer and performer, currently performing at Whoa Studios as a puppeteer for their Christmas show. In my down time I love to spend time exercising with animals and writing.

In 2018 I worked full time for a company as a dog walker and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Working with animals brings me so much joy, so I decided to continue on as a freelance dog walker!

My experience with animals isn't limited to dog walking, in the past, I have fostered adult cats and kittens through the SPCA and Lonely Miaow and I am also very active in rehoming lost/feral cats in my neighbourhood.

I adore animals and hope that I can give you a worry-free service in looking after your animal friends! Having had many animals throughout my childhood I understand the bond that we form with our pets and I will do my utmost to make sure I can give the same love, care and patience to your own animals in your absence.

I can offer you in-home pet sitting for dogs, cats, rodents and reptiles. I can also offer daycare in my own home for the same animals. I can pick up and drop off for your convenience. I also offer dog walking! Nearby is the huge Grey Lynn Park, Meola Reef Dog Park and multiple beaches.

Rachel is absolutely lovely and was dedicated to win over my scaredy cat. It was a weight off my mind knowing that the boys had her looking out for them while we were away.
