Hi, I'm Laura. I have 10 years' experience of walking and sitting with a variety of breeds and am now training to be a dog behaviourist, with a wealth of knowledge and experience in canine psychology. I changed careers to dedicate my life to dogs and I have plenty of time, expertise and love to devote to my doggy charges. I promise to look after your dog as if it was my own.
I've 'brought up' several puppies in London, socialising and training them to be confident city dogs, used to all sorts of noises, other dogs and people, and practised at travelling on buses and tubes.
I grew up surrounded by animals as my dad is a vet, which also means a handy 24hr helpline for any concerns. I just adore dogs and so my life and work is centred around them.
I have consistent 5 star reviews on housesitting websites which I can share with you, and can offer this service to look after your dog in the comfort of its own environment while you are away. I often have dogs with medical needs and am confident in administering medication. The feedback from all my clients in my various work with dogs has been excellent and it is very important for me to keep it that way.
I know how important it is to reassure you when you and your dog are apart, so I can update you with pictures of what we're doing together. For day care charges I have my own kit of toys at home, an escape-proof (walled) garden with space to run around and inside plenty of comfy corners to snooze in. I have a ‘crated and gated’ dedicated puppy area. I own my flat and live with my fiancé so we have turned it into our own doggy paradise. We have two cats who are used to dogs and great for socialisation. I’m trained in canine first aid and fully insured.
I’m pretty flexible with my time and 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.
