About Laura

Hello, My name is Laura, I am 31 years old and I have just moved to Adelaide permanently for work.

I have worked professionally in the animal industry for over 14 years. At Ku-Ring-Gai Vet as a kennel hand, a dog walker with pets on the run, an animal attend at the Animal Welfare League, a Zoo Keeper at Taronga Zoo Sydney, Primate Care Staff at Monkey World in Dorset, where I have been for the past year and a half and now as a Primate Keeper at Adelaide Zoo.

I had been pet sitting for a few years when I lived back in Sydney, where I am from and really enjoyed it so wanted to continue now I am home. I have had to leave my family dog Coco with my parents in Sydney and miss her very much so will be very happy to give your animals a lot of love and attention.

My main service is pet sitting in your home to make your animal as comfortable as possible while you are away. There is nothing like the comfort and safety of your own home, while staying I will collect mail, put out bins, water plants and anything else that needs to be done.

I am also available for dog walking, for days I am working I do walks in the afternoon, for my days off I can do a walk any time, my walks go for half an hour, for an hour walk the price is $25 and $10 for an extra dog.

I also do home visits, for a morning visit I stay for half an hour if I’m working and an hour if I’m not working. Afternoon visits I stay for an hour, but I can be flexible and timings can be discussed. I can also collect mail, put bins out, water plants etc for home visits.

Please feel free to contact me with any other questions. Kind Regards Laura

House Sitting
Anthony, 2019-12-04

It’s the second time Laura house-sit for us, and she is amazing. Our two cats warm to her very quickly, and were looking really happy and relaxed when we got home. Laura also kept us well informed by sending us pictures of the cats every day. Her experience with animals absolutely shines through with our cats, and would strongly recommend her to anyone in need of a caring sitter. Thank you Laura.

Laura was fantastic! So glad we found her. We could relax on holidays knowing Charles and Pilot were looked after so well. & Pilot thought she smelt so good when she met us in her Zoo uniform! Our house was left looking perfect too. Thank you.
