Do you need someone to walk your dog, or prefer them to stay in a comfortable home environment rather than kennels when you go away? Based in East Hoathly, I’m an experienced previous dog owner and would love to take care of your pet. For prices & availability, please phone Rachel: 07984182237.

  • Dog walking.
  • Doggy day care at my home in East Hoathly, with a secure, high-fenced garden.

    (I’m happy to follow your usual home routine/rules, which helps reassure animals who are not used to being away from home).

I’ve worked from home for the past 15 years, first as a feature writer, and then as an author writing young adult fantasy novels.

I was lucky to share my life with a special black Labrador named Biff (left), for 14 years. I would work on plot problems while we walked through the woods and he kept me company while I wrote at my computer.

I love walking and find it helps me to be creative. Now Biff has passed away, I have more time and love to give other dogs – and maybe even whisper my story ideas to them!


“Rachel has looked after my dog Rey many times and has stayed in my property for a week to take care of Rey and my cat while we were on holiday. I appreciated getting photo updates and knowing they were happy and cared for. If you’re looking for a reliable and trustworthy dog walker or sitter, I’ve no hesitation in recommending her.”
Ruth Simon-House, East Hoathly

“Taitti always looks forward to her walks with Rachel and loves going for sleep overs!

It’s great having someone local who I can ask to walk her, or just check in on her if we’re going out for the day.”
Maz Beal, East Hoathly



“Our dog Albert loves going for walks with Rachel and always enjoys staying with her. She’s also slept at our house for a week while we went on holiday. As well as giving him company, it was nice having the extra security of knowing someone was in the house while we were away.”
Kelly Rowlinson, Waldron


“If you’re looking for a reliable and friendly dog walker, I can 100% recommend Rachel. She’s taken Fergus on walks while I was at work, and has often managed to fit me into her schedule at short notice. Fergus is always incredibly excited to see her!”
Ruth O’Rourke-Jones, East Hoathly

“I asked Rachel for help after I had an accident which meant I couldn’t get out and about as much. Maisie loved going for walks with her.”
Michele Bunney, East Hoathly
