About Lauren

I am the daughter of a vet and have cared for animals my whole life. I am confident but gentle with animals. I am a part time school teacher with a hubby, three primary aged children. Our 12 year old cavoodle recently passed. I am home from lunchtime most days (working only a few mornings). We used to walk our own dog (and sometimes our neighbour's too! That's the Golden Retriever in our photos) nearly every day so love getting out for a walk. We have a large grassy area near our house and also love visiting the beach too. 

We have a large, secure, fenced back yard with an outdoor undercover deck area for shade on hot days. My own dog was an outside dog during the day and slept inside at night. I’m flexible with what your animals’ needs will be. 

My children (youngest aged 6) will play, cuddle and walk animals so all animals need to be child-friendly. My children are not rough and respect our furry visitors. We love dogs, cats, fish, birds, guinea pigs and more (even snakes are welcome)! 

Our house is clean, smoke free and all human and dog vaccinations are up to date. I am flexible with pick up and drop off times. We have security measures in place but our street is incredibly safe and we live at the end of a cul de sac.

I am comfortable with basic medication administration (topical, oral pill, oral liquid) and am happy to perform grooming tasks. 

I can communicate with basic Auslan for any clients with hearing impairment and I am a teacher trained in special needs so clients (or pets) with special needs are welcome to contact me with any specific requests.  

We have experience looking after many friend's and family’s animals and we love having lots of different animals visit our lives!

Lauren and her family were incredible yet again with Winston, our happy but anxious spoodle. So grateful to have found a second home for him when we travel. 🙏🙏🙏

Frankie and Lilou loved their stay with Lauren and her lovely family. Lauren is easy to to communicate with and manages our puppies with great confidence. We love the regular updates during Frankie and Lilou's stay!

My Father is a vet and I have spent my whole life caring for animals, helping in his business and volunteering at the RSPCA. My first job was cleaning my Dad’s vet surgery and walking, feeding and playing with animals! I’m now a part time school teacher but miss the experience of many animals in my life! I also speak some Auslan for clients that have hearing impairment
