About Laura

Hi, I'm Laura. I have plenty of time, energy and love to devote to your dog. I grew up surrounded by animals as my dad is a vet, which also means a handy 24hr helpline for any concerns. I am a 'dogaholic' and so my life and work is centred around them. I have 10 years' experience of professional walking and sitting with a variety of breeds and ages. I work as a dog trainer alongside walking and day care, so will be consistent with your training routine or can offer this as an additional service for puppies. I am also fascinated by dog psychology and want to make sure both dogs and humans are as happy as they can be, so I'm also now studying to qualify as a dog behaviourist. 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 have consistent 5 star references for dogsitting with other sites, which I can provide to you. I have travelled abroad to housesit pets and so have many doggy friends around the world. I've 'brought up' several puppies in London, socialising and training them. I often have dogs with medical needs 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.

I think it's important to reassure you when you and your dog are apart, so I can update you with pictures and messages of what we're doing together. For day care charges I have my own kit of toys and treats at home, an escape-proof (walled) garden and plenty of comfy chairs to snooze on. I have a ‘crated and gated’ dedicated puppy area. I own my flat and have no flatmates so have made it into a doggy paradise. For walks I'm surrounded by several amazing parks.

If you need a last minute sitter or walker I'm more than likely able to help. I promise to look after your dog as if it was my own. 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 amazing looking after our puppy Teddy. He was so excited to see her and I got regular pics and updates. They had a lovely day and I think Teddy wanted to stay! Thanks so much!

    Laura you were amazing. I have never seen Indy so happily exhausted. From the walks to the play pal to the training to the pics sent to let us know how Indy was getting on. Really fab thanks. Indy wants to know when she can come back ;)
