About Laura

Hello! My name is Laura and I am here for your pet sitting needs. Happily and lovingly servicing the central, south Sydney, and inner west suburbs. I am very much looking forward to meeting your pet(s)!

I am a veterinary nurse of 10 years with not only a passion for the well being of animals but I also possess the knowledge and professional experience to help contribute to your pet's health and happiness.

As a pet sitter, my priority is to work with you to ensure I can provide a safe, engaging, and pAWsitive experience while your pet is in my care. I love sending detailed updates and photos to you while you are away, whether on a trip or just at work. I am happy to comply with the structures and boundaries you have created for your pet or help you develop new ones if needed.

My home is tucked away on a quiet street in Newtown just steps away from a large off leash park. I have a fenced in, private courtyard perfect for sunbathing and playtime.

Important notice for potential dog walking bookings: I only accept dog walking bookings in Newtown and Camperdown. If you'd like to book a dog walk and you live outside of those two suburbs, please book one home visit. Thank you in advance.

When I am not working, my husband and I enjoy spending time with our kitten, Bud and our dog, Alma. We also enjoy live music, hiking, photography, and traveling.

Thank you for your interest and consideration.

Laura did an outstanding job caring for my two senior dogs. She communicated well with me at every stage, and the dogs were immediately at ease with her. When one of my dogs was unwell she checked in with me, handled my dog capably and left detailed information to pass on to my vet. I am happy to recommend Laura highly - she is thorough, experienced and caring.
