About Laura

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.

    Laura was fantastic! I couldn't have ask for a better carer for Henri. He bonded with her straight away. I don't normally give strangers my house keys without referrals, however with Laura I felt completely comfortable. She gave me daily updates with pictures followed by a summary of what they got up to. She's a pro! I could not recommend Laura enough, but only on the days I don't need her:)

    I couldn't have asked for a lovelier person to look after my two tiny pups. Laura has helped socialise them and cares for them like they are her own. I completely trust Laura with a key to my home, and with my two babies. Thank you so much, there is no one I would rather have look after them.

    Laura was absolutely amazing! She really went above and beyond to ensure my dog Rupert was well looked after and given lots of love and attention. Most importantly, Rupert has epilepsy and thus requires some extra special care. I had full confidence in Laura to deal with this and she proved herself to be very responsible in this regard. I have no hesitation in recommending Laura to anyone and I would use her again without question! :)
