About Lara
I will provide your pets with all of the love and care they need and am a particular cuddly person!
I can get into a routine easily and will care for your pet/s as if it/they were my own. I have grown up around many animals throughout my life including rabbits, cows, sheep, chickens, cats, and a range of dog breeds (including but not limited to Mastiff X's, Labrador X's, German Shepherds, Kelpie X's, Blue/Red heelers, Chihuahua X's, King Charles Cavaliers, Rottweiler X's, Bull Arabs and Neopolitan Mastiffs).

I grew up on the outskirts of a small country town in Victoria and that's where my love for animals developed when I was living on a farm.
When you adopt me as your pet sitter I promise that I will care for your pet/s to the best of my abilities and ensure that your mind is always at ease 🌻💫


IMPORTANT NOTICE: As of March 2022 I am only taking local bookings within the Bendigo region due to influx of local bookings and change of circumstances that limit travel

About the services I provide:

🌻 Overnight stays at pet's house:
~ I arrive in the evening and leave in the morning

🌻 Daycare at pet's house:
~ More than 4 hours spent at pet's house with pet/s during the day

🌻 Walks:
~ Generally a standard 30-minute duration (or less if required)
~ Can do longer walks upon request; extra time is charged in 15-minute blocks

🌻 Dog training:
~ Generally a standard 30-minute duration

🐾 If you require daycare for longer than a 30-minute visit but under 4 hours, I am happy to organise a suitable half-day/part-day daycare rate :)

🐾 Peak pricing entails a $10 increase on applicable days, except for December 24th, 25th, 26th and 31st, and January 1st that entail a $20 increase

🐾 Services provided outside of a 20km radius may incur additional costs

🐾 Despite the Madpaws system displaying prices as per day, you will be charged per service - for example, if you require multiple house visits per day, you will be charged the price of a house visit multiplied by the number of visits you require

🐾 Specific arrival and departure times need to be set prior to booking confirmation

🐾 Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions at all :)
