About Lauren
Home Visit Pet Care Service * Dog Walking * Companion visits * In-home Pet Minding - around the Lower Central Coast, NSW.

Owning many pets throughout my life I understand as much as we want to, we can’t always be there for our pets. Whether you have to travel away for work, commute long hours, or go on holidays, all pet owners worry over what to do with their pets while they’re away.

I provide a home visit pet care service as an alternative to leaving pets in kennels. This allows your pets to stay in familiar surroundings and receive personalised one on one attention in their home environment. I also offer a range of dog walking and playtime options, emergency visits, new puppy/kitten visits, dog walking, and in-home pet minding in our own family environment. Our home is fully enclosed, puppy proof and has high fencing. Your pet will have access to inside and out with 24/7 supervision. When booking Doggy Daycare or Dog Boarding, it is important you bring your pet to our home for a meet & greet. This will be arranged after I accept your request and confirm availability. You can keep up to date with your pets stay by viewing daily photos and updates by following on Facebook and Instagram.

I have a Cert III in Animals Studies, previously worked as a Deputy Editor for Dog’s Life Magazine, volunteered for the RSPCA and other animal welfare organisations.

IMPORTANT: As we have two young children, and our own pets, it is mandatory your pet is child & dog friendly. **We are unable to accommodate for undesexed animals over the age of 7 months**

Archie had been feeling poorly and Lauren gave him a cuddle, took him for a little walk and even entertained my cat who decided he wanted in on the action. Highly recommend Lauren!
