Recommendations for Dogsitter 247 C
I have known Rafaela for over eight years. She has helped me my pet dogs and have taken care of them for me when I had travel. She is very knowledgeable in dog care and attentive to their needs. She has commented on having owned several different breeds in the past,both large and small, so I know she has broad experience. I know she has takes very good care of her dogs and even makes her own dog food. I would recommend her highly.
I have known Rafaela for many years and would highly recommend her for your pet care needs. Rafaela has a true love of animals and is able to relate to each one on an individual basis. I have complete confidence in her judgment, reliability, and most of all on her kindness towards all animals. She is able to administer medications as well as provide your pet's basic needs on a daily basis. Her fenced in yard provides a safe and pet-friendly outdoor environment for exercise and play. Choosing Rafaela will ensure your furry friend is being looked after by someone who truly cares for their welfare.
I have known Rafaela for quite a few years and she is one of the most caring and knowledgeable dog experts that I know. So in addition to having a wonderful place for your dog to stay, your dog will be carefully attended to by a dog care specialist and dog nutritionist. She has been dedicating her life to making the world more hospitable to dogs.
Rafaela is a genuine animal lover and I completely trust her with my Maggie who is just as much a part of our family as any of us. She's very knowledgeable and has a lot of experience even with sick pets. She's great!
I feel strongly about writing this testimonial about the quality care Rafaela has provided to our little boy Snowflake. Snowflake has stayed with Rafaela for prolonged periods of time while we were overseas. He was always happy to go to her home and he was well loved and cared for - well worth more than we were paying. When Snowflake was going through illness with multiple vet visits, blood transfusions due to internal bleeding and medications the vets couldn't figure out what the catalyst was that was making him sick. After a couple of months it was recommended we euthanize Snowflake. I panicked my baby was only 4 yrs. old. I felt helpless. I contacted Rafaela we sat down and went over all Snowflakes medical records and medications. Next was a list of foods, changes in environment, diet, family and other pets. It was my last resort; Rafaela suggested I stop the foods (inform my vet) and put Snowflake on a completely low residue Organic diet with low oxalate content and 1 protein with 2 ingredients. But still give some tummy coating meds to help support healing, inflammation and get bleeding under control. The reason I am sharing this - It SAVED Snowflakes life.. So when anyone asked about Rafaela's integrity or ability to care for pets I jump at the chance to give a raving testimonial. Just ask Snowflake !.
The very best dedication, love and care our dog has have ever received from a dog sitter. Rafaela is no ordinary sitter she offers specialized individual care which made a huge difference in our dogs anxiety. We have had issues with leaving our dog with sitters because he would get anxious and shake we couldn't figure it out. In short Rafaela nailed it by assessing him for a week and then started with behavior modification. Our dog no longer has the anxiety he had with previous dog sitters And he loves going to Rafaela's!! Just some advise to other dog owners.. I'm sure somewhere there are great dog sitters out there however we had bad luck finding one. If your sitter isn't qualified to properly pair dogs - your dog can get psychologically traumatized or hurt or both without you even knowing. Most sitters take in dogs for income without regard to how they would get along with other dogs - with absolutely no training or skills. Here's a small tidbit of information - we used a reputable local public daycare facility, came early to pickup we were told we will get your dog. (I could hear dogs barking and strange whimpering coming from the back of the facility). So I walked back all dogs were in wire cages! A couple of the dogs we so frightened and shaking! So when you think your dog is playing all day at a public daycare guess again! I was then told they let them out at certain times to play which was quite different from what we were told about their program at the initial appointment! Don't know about anyone else but I'm not paying for my dog to be in a cage for most of the day - I can do that at home! We will never know exactly what was happening to our furry love or how he was treated when we left him with other sitters/dogs but it obviously wasn't a positive experience for Brado who is so sweet and submissive - we feel horrible this happened to him! We highly recommend and want to thank Rafaela (dogsitter247.....) for her loving dedication to all dogs! The Cullen Family! Be careful. Dogs do bully other dogs!
