Hello! My name is Laura. With me in my profile picture is a treasured member of my family, Gretel. (Also referred to as 'Gretty', 'Gretty Groo' and 'Miss Groo') She is a very well-adjusted and happy 4 year old.
There has only been a year or two of my life where there wasn't a pet dog in my family home, and during that time the company of a pet was sorely missed. My life has been so enriched by the pets I have had, and the pets I have met through my experience house sitting.
I started house sitting/pet sitting about 5 years ago and I truly love it. I have experience with:
- Low maintenance pets, to very anxious pets that take a while to adjust to a new person in their home. I am comfortable and confident in giving the pet time and assurance that I am a person they can trust.
- Dogs and cats, large and small, but would love to meet different animals/be an enthusiastic learner when it comes to their care.
- Oral and topical treatments for cats and dogs, so long as detailed instructions are provided.
I enjoy getting to know the pets and the people I sit for, and I endeavor to be a person they can trust and enjoy spending time with. Caring for a pet while their person/people are away is nourishing for me, because I know how much I worry about my pet when I am away. I will always strive to provide the care and attention for your pet(s) that I give to my own, because they deserve it!
Ps. I am looking for more regular dog walking jobs so please feel free to message if you're looking for someone!
