About Lauren

Hi my name is Lauren! I am currently a third year veterinary student at the University of Melbourne. I am originally from Canada.. I decided to travel and study all in one! :) But because I'm so far away from home I was unable to bring my animals with me. They're safe and happy at home on the farm but I miss them dearly!! So, I thought what better way to get my fix of animals then by signing up for pawshake. Since I am in vet school my previous jobs have been at veterinary clinics. As such, your furry friends will be in great hands under my care! In addition, I am a very active person and I love to walk I would be more than happy to bring your pup on a nice long walk! My usual loops take me to albert lake, the royal botanical gardens and elwood park. I am more than happy to have your dog or other small animal (except cats :( my boyfriend is allergic) stay with me but unfortunately for at home stays I can only take small or small/medium sized dogs because of my apartment restrictions. If you would rather your dog stay at home I would be more than happy to make multiple visits to the house for walks/feedings and cuddles. If you have any questions please feel free to ask :) Ps. The last picture included in the gallery is of my apartment. It’s a roomy one bedroom ground floor apartment with large windows for ample people watching for the pups! :)

Tom’s dog Mickey here. I had such a great time with Lauren, and Tom tells me that Lauren replied to messages quickly and helped make the arrangements of a last-minute booking simple. Doesn’t get any better than that!
