About Laura

Hi there - I am 39 years old & a Social Work student at UOW. I am also completing my Certificate IV in Companion Animal Training through The Delta Institute in Sydney. I also live in the Wollongong area.

I love animals & have been an owner all of my life. My parents bred & showed dogs when I was young & that’s when I became familiar with house breaking & training. I’ve been a dog owner all of my life. I began horse riding at 10 & only stopped recently when I moved from the California to Australia to study. I also worked with therapy horses & children with special needs for 3 years through a Hippotherapy program in Southern California

My dog Merlin (Miniature Schanuzer) recently passed away & my new landlord will not allow pets whatsoever. Please consider letting me love your little one while you’re away!

For dogs, I’m happy to do walks, playtim or exercise, and overnights as long as you have wifi so I can study & for horses, I’m happy to do exercise such as rides or lunging, and basic grooming. Extra services like baths can be arranged for additional fees. The ‘sign up’ for this site is limited on what services & for how much, so it’s best we chat so I can know your needs.

Many thanks in advance!
