About Lani
Hey there. I am a qualified, registered vet nurse of 10+ years, and have been pet sitting and dog walking for over 16 years. I am competent, reliable, trustworthy, friendly, kind, efficient, hard working, and i pride in doing tasks to the highest quality i can. What started out as looking after the neighbours pets whilst they were on holiday, turned into a passion of mine. Thats why I became a vet nurse, because i love animals and enjoy making their life as great as they make mine!

I have always loved animals, big and small. I currently share my life with a gorgeous 13yr old Rotti X Kelpie named Layla, who is my world! I treat every pet with as much love and care as i do my own (which is a lot!!) All the love, attention, affection and cuddles they deserve. As well as encouraging good behaviour, manners and training, through positive reinforcement.
I have studied dog behaviour and training on top of my wide knowledge and experience as a vet nurse. I have taught puppy pre-school classes for many years in clinic, I love dog training, and can help you in having a better behaved dog also. I use my girl sometimes with my training, she is an amazing role model.
On walks, I like the dogs to sit before crossing the road, as well as before meal times etc as an example of everyday manners i like to encourage.
Dogs, cats, birds, pocket pets, horses or chickens, there is no pet I am not comfortable with. Medicating animals, bathing cats, clipping nails, ear cleans, there's not much i cant do.
With hosting pets, I do not have a doggy door, so they must be house trained, and be ok with being left outside for parts of the day (unless crate trained). My girl can occasionally be un-easy with smaller dogs (she got attacked at a young age) so the main thing is the dogs getting along. If they are ok on meeting, they are best friends for life!
For dog walking we go out for 35-45 min. I also fill up their water bowls and make sure the house is secure before leaving.
With pet visiting, if a walk is required there is an additional small fee which can be added at your leisure. For other pets, brushing, cuddles, playing with toys etc is included. I also check the mail box, can put out the bins, leave lights on etc.
Thanks for reading. Hope to hear from you and am happy to answer any further questions you may have =)
