Hi, I'm Laura. I have plenty of time, energy and love to devote to your dog. I am a huge dog lover and so much of my life is centred around them. I have 10 years' experience of professional dog walking and sitting with a variety of breeds and ages. I am fascinated by dog psychology and want to make sure both dogs and humans are as happy as they can be, so I'm now training to be a dog behaviourist hoping to qualify in a few months. I have a lot of experience with rescue dogs and think there is no problem or fear that can't be solved with patience and love.
I grew up surrounded by dogs as my dad is a vet, which also means a handy 24hr helpline for anything unsure about with your pet. I'm a 'dogaholic' and there is nothing quite like the feeling of walking in one of London's beautiful green spaces with a dog by my side.
I'm mature, responsible and trustworthy and would care for your dog as if it was my own. I have consistent five star references from dogsitting and walking through borrowmydoggy, trustedhousesitters and housesittersuk, and I am very happy to provide these references to you. I regularly sit and walk for dogs via these sites so have plenty of experience with different dogs and am getting to know a range of different breeds and behaviours very well. I've had dogs with medical needs before and am confident in administering medication. The feedback from all my clients (now friends) has been excellent and it is very important for me to keep it that way.
As my work is flexible I have plenty of time to spend with dogs, as well as plenty of energy for games, walks, pats and belly rubs (or whatever it is they are into).
I have my own little dog kit of toys and treats for the dogs I look after. If you need a last minute sitter or walker I'm more than likely able to help. Just get in touch and I'm sure we can work something out that makes life easy for you and happy for your dog.
