About Lara

I am a complete animal lover and have had pets my whole life. My love for animals has lead me to do a degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare (Wildlife Management and Conservation). One thing is for sure, your dog will be given undivided attention under my watch! I am very experienced in looking after many species. Over the years I have dog walked, and provided a dog sitting service. Being with, and caring for animals fills me with such joy and happiness.

I am a zoo keeper by profession and have extensive experience working with a wide variety of animals. I do work full time, but on a varied working rota. Please do not let this put you off as I will endeavour to make plans to be able to help you out.
I live in a terraced cottage with a large enclosed garden having direct access onto a nature reserve. Living with me is my partner (who is as animal crazy as I am).

    Prompt and very convivial. Lola came back panting which is always a good sign.

    Lara came to our holiday cottage to look after 3 dogs while we were out for the day. Most holiday cottage owners do not like dogs to be left unattended while the owners are out and had I taken them and it had been a hot day, I wouldn't,t have been able to enjoy the evént we were attending. Lara was here at the exact time we arranged and the dogs took to her immediately. She has a delightful personality and oozed confidence in the task she undertook for us. I was delighted to find her service through the internet and so glad to have such a lovely person to look after my much adored dogs for the day.

    Robin and Lara were fantastic with my Staffordshire Bull Terrier pup! He stayed all day Saturday and over night, before we collected him on Sunday morning. He was really relaxed and sleepy all Sunday so he clearly had a fun and active time with his new friends. Will definitely use again and couldn't recommend Lara and Robin enough! So much better than putting my boy in kennels! Thank you!
