I am a lawyer turned full time uni student, dog lover and part-time dog mum. I have had dogs all my life and right now I have a kelpie who I share with my mum (month on month off custody) so I need a dog fix when I give her back. I am happy to look after your dog at your house or just check-in and walk them.
I have experience with puppies and have dispensed medication where necessary. I believe in meeting dogs where they are, I don’t see my job as trying to train them, disrupt them or enforce my behavioural preferences when I am dog sitting - if your fur baby sleeps on the bed or expects exactly 8 biscuits at meal times then that is fine by me!
I love taking long walks and exploring a new area on foot and am happy to take them in my car if that is something you are comfortable with.
In the past friends and family have been confident leaving their dogs with me or have me walk them when they are away. My house is known as a dog hotel. Most recently I had a crazy Cocker Spaniel and a moody Maltese Shih Tsu for four weeks for a friend. We took a photo of our adventures for their mum everyday (I can do that for you too if you like). Two animals at a time is probably my maximum.
Lauren is great with our dogs and very punctual. The dogs wait at the door for her to arrive and Brandi shakes in anticipation, funny to watch.
Lauren was a fantastic house and dog sitter. From the minute she walked in our house it was evident that she was a dog lover. Our Groodle puppy Honey absolutely loved her and when we got home Honey was very settled and had obviously been well loved during our absence. We got regular photo updates and Lauren was even happy to do organise a face time call with our puppy & kids. Our house was as we left it on our return.
We would highly recommend Lauren and will definitely use her again ☺
