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. Until recently, I shared my life with a gorgeous 13yr old Rotti X Kelpie named Layla, who was my world. Unfortunately cancer took her away from me in March 2021. So at the moment I am able to host dogs at mine, or house sit also (3 night minimum) (restricted areas) I treat every pet with as much love and care as if they were 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.
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 i have no trouble with.
I am avaliable to do house sitting between a radius of Gwelup, Trigg, and Meville (Fees @3 night minimum)
With pet hosting, 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 when i am at work.
**Please note**: If you wish to pick up your pets earlier/ return sooner, that is possible, but a 3 night charge applies***

For dog walking we go out for 35-45 minutes. I also fill up their water bowls and make sure the house is secure before leaving.
With pet visiting, if you are wanting your dog walked, there is small additional fee of $5 which can be added to make sure your furbaby stays healthy and active while you are away. 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. I am happy to answer any further questions you may have =)

So good we’ve already booked Bo for another stay with Lani! Regular updates from Lani, Bo put on weight (he was too skinny), and I think he loved her regular outings. Nothing remotely negative to report!
