Every day is one long pet parade for me and my 23-year-old daughter Erin. :-) We currently have a Jack Russell-Chihuahua cross, two cats, four chickens (over ten years old), a raft of adopted ducks, and two horses. Life is all about them!
Even better, Erin is in her fifth and final year of the veterinary program at Massey, so her future with animals is assured. She volunteered at the Waikanae SPCA for several years and is a competitive horse rider as well.
Erin spends as much of her summer and term breaks as possible caring for animals of all shapes, sizes, and sounds, whether for daily visits or while housesitting. In previous summers she has housesat on lifestyle blocks, taking care of horses, cats, and dogs, and even moving livestock. Meanwhile, I work from home as a freelance editor, and I love taking regular breaks to get my pet fix. I'm usually off to the paddock twice a day, with stops to walk our dog along the river or the beach.
Between the two of us, Erin and I are happy to offer reliable, flexible, and attentive in-home visits with play time, cuddles, and feeding as desired. We also can exercise your dog with 30-minute local walks and provide some basic training, always, always using positive reinforcement.
We know it can be very stressful to entrust your pets to someone else's care, but we consider it our privilege and our pleasure to give every animal we meet the affection and care they deserve. We hope we can help out you and your pets when you need it. Thank you. :-)
Rachel is fantastic! Very quick communication and incredibly flexible with bookings. Also love the updates I get after each walk. I am confident that our dog is not only being walked but also being trained as well as having a fantastic time 😊
Rachel is brilliant with my 7 month old puppy Murphy. Murphy loves her and looks forward to his walks and I can relax knowing that he is in safe hands. Highly recommended.
