About Rachel

A Little About Myself

Hi, my name is Rachel Hatfield and I am a uni student that studies Animal Science at Massey University. I am originaly from the States and have moved here with my family 3 years ago due to my mom being kiwi.

I have loved animals since I was a kid and have dreamt about becoming a vet so I can help animals in need and just be around them 24/7. I love the outdoors so walking dogs gives me another excuse to go out and explore my environment. I don't mind the rain which means i'd be able to give your dog the attention and play time it needs no matter the weather, which is probably a good thing since Palmy's weather is so unpredictable!

My Skills

I have worked in various vet clinics as well as doggy daycares and a cattery. This means I have a lot of experience handling animals of all sorts, from cats to horses. I am currently working at a doggy day care which means I am well informed with dog behaviour. In my role I interact with all sized dogs, playing with them and watching them to make sure they're having fun and playing well with others. I also drive dogs home for owners who can't come pick them up. This experience benefits because if you have a shy dog I won't force myself onto them, I will have the patience to allow them to get to know me.

A Day With Me

My motivation for becoming a sitter/walker is to get outdoors and interact with different animals. Being able to make them happy by providing excercise and love brings me joy. I can walk your dogs or just play with them in your yard but no matter the area my focus is making sure theyre happy and having fun! I have pet sat multiple times before as well as being emloyed to lok after and take care of animals. I have looked after cats as well as dogs and know their needs. I am good dealing with any sized animal and a typical day with me would include a trip to the dog park (if they get along with other dogs) and a walk along side the river. After the dog has recieved an adequate amount of excercise and play time I would then take the time to give them water and cuddles.

Thanks so much for putting our mind at ease when weaning our puppy into staying home alone. Your pop in visits were so helpful and I really appreciated getting photo updates throughout the day!
