Valentine, New South Wales
Service Description
I have a passion to care and look after all animals and have a long history of working towards my goal of working in the animal care industry. While still at school I volunteered at Blackbutt Reserve for twelve months where tasks included food preparation, feeding and cleaning of animal enclosures for a variety of captive animals. I have completed my Certificate II in Animal Studies and a Certificate III in Companion Animals and currently volunteer as a Team Leader at Noah's Wildlife Retreat where I advise other volunteers and care for alpacas, a miniature horse, pigs, rabbits, chickens, ducks, peacocks, a variety of caged birds as well as two dogs. I would love to lavish your pet with the care and personal attention they deserve and would spend time playing, walking and loving your pet. I live in the Lake Macquarie/Newcastle area and am ready to become a minder for your pet in the familiar environment of your own home and take your dog for walks around your neighbourhood with every care as if they were my own.

We were very happy with the service Laura provided. Our dogs loved Laura and she gave them lots of love and attention which meant our yard was in one piece when we got home! We will definitely be using Laura again!
