About Laura

I’m a 24-year-old female and a recent university graduate, having just completed my Bachelor of Primary
Education. I admire the constant, unconditional love and happiness that pets can bring to our lives, and believe they enhance the lives of everyone around them.  

I have owned both dogs and cats throughout my entire life, as well as a rabbit, guinea pig, and budgies. My first dog was a Cocker Spaniel, followed by three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels throughout my childhood and teenage years. My two current dogs, Finn (4 years) and Elliot (3 months) bring a smile to my face every time I see them, and I would love to share the same love I have for my pets with yours. My family also owned a cat whilst I was growing up, who was a much loved member of the family.

My previous experience includes house and pet sitting for family friends for anywhere between overnight stays
to a week-long stay at their house. Duties included morning and night meal times, providing bones, snacks and toys, water replenishments, walks, supervision and company.  

I would love to make the transition as seamless as possible whilst you’re away from your beloved pet and family
member. Your time away will be made easier, knowing that your pets are being cared for and spoilt. The services I offer include dog walking, home visits, and house and pet sitting overnight stays.  

Home Visits: I am generally available mornings and evenings, and can administer some medications and simple training such as dogwalking. I will also be able to maintain the simple jobs around your home like bringing in the mail or watering the plants for you whilst I visit your pet.

Dog Walking: I absolutely love dog walking, and would be happy to walk your dog from anywhere between 5 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on your dog's age and stamina. I am happy to walk in the local neighbourhood around your home or I also love to walk by the beach.

House Sitting: I take home sitting extremely seriously, and will always maintain high security measures to make sure your pet and home are safe (ie. preventing strangers from entering the home, always ensuring all doors and windows are locked, checking on your pet frequently). During home visits, I will stay with your pets for as long as possible outside of work hours, and spend each evening spoiling them with love and attention. I am happy to stay overnight and to discuss longer term stays based on your and your pet's needs.

Laura was very thorough with everything needed. Our cat is shy and she did all the right things for a cuddle!

Our very senior cat Tinka, spent the weekend enjoying the company of Laura and her partner and had such a good time she didn’t even notice we were gone! Normally when we return home we expect a little grumpiness from our old girl as she lets us know her feelings about us having left but this time she didn’t even react! Tinka is on medication and has a few “senior” needs which Laura was more than happy to accomodate.

Laura took care of the house and plants also and everything was left cleaner than we left it and the plants greener 😊. Her communication was great and I had absolutely no worries leaving knowing she was staying.

Familiar with dog training techniques
I am an incredibly responsible pet sitter and have recent experience with house and pet sitting, caring for a range of pets including dogs, cats and rabbits. I have had regular and consistent practise with walking dogs and enforcing correct and safe walking techniques. I am experienced in walking dogs both on and off the leash (should the dog be trained to walk off leash).
