About Laura
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!

First time using Mad Paws and meeting with Laura. Laura is a nice person and smart. Laura followed our requests perfectly in caring for our cat, Bonnie. We will definitely be requesting Laura's assistance from now on.

What an absolute hero! Looking after 3 young, boisterous golden retrievers for two days during torrential rain is no easy feat and Laura was an absolute champion! We’re so so thankful and the dogs can’t wait for her to come back and play again

Laura was great with communication letting me know when she got there. Lottie loved her walk and play with Gretel. I was reassured that even though i was working, Lottie got the care and attention she deserves. Thank you Laura 🙂
