My name is Laura and I work as a veterinary nursing assistant!
My life currently revolves around animals and I would love that to continue into my free time also! I love taking care of all dogs small and large, with all their little different personalities and different traits.
I am very trustworthy and have a lot of experience in looking after dogs and I also have two of my own! I know what I would look for in a pet sitter and this is what I aspire to be like, I always treat any animals in my care as if they were my own! I am very capable of giving animals all different kinds of medication and I also feel my experience in the veterinary field gives me a good deal of knowledge in what warning signs to look for if anything seems off! My home visits last for 20 minutes at a time, although this can be longer if required, 20 minutes would be minimum.
I also love staying active and would appreciate anyone who would choose me to walk their dogs. I currently work full time but I do get breaks during my workday and I will always try to be as flexible as possible to take care of your little furries! I work predominantly in the Belfast area but I would also be willing to take on work around Holywood. I live beside Orangefield Park and Bloomfield and I know it very well. I also know Redburn country park but would be willing to take your pet for a walk at it's closest location if needs.
I would feel very privileged to be chosen to look after anyone's pets and I am very keen to add more lovely doggies into my life full of animals!
As well as dogs I am very capable of taking care of cats as well! I have no cats of my own but I have become very fond of these little bundles in the past couple of years and would love to spend more time with them.
We are more than happy with the service provided by Laura. We were hesitant about leaving our kitten for the first time but Laura completely put our minds at rest. Buttons took to her immediately & he is normally so shy & frightened of everything. Laura came to meet us all a few days before we left so knew where the food etc was & Buttins routine. Laura also sent us updates & photos which were so good to receive. We would recommend Laura to anyone in beed of a pet sitter.
The Pawshake app makes finding a sitter an easy straightforward process. I chose to contact Laura and she was quick to reply and arrange a meet up. I’m very glad we did. Laura is a pleasant, genuine person and was thorough going over the cats’ food, water, litter requirements etc. Moreover, she already knew our kittens since she works in the vets where they were neutered & get their vaccinations. We left with confidence that Laura would look after our cats with care and attention and would be more than capable of dealing with any situation that arose. She was able to visit twice each day & kept us up-to-date on each visit. She even found the time to play with the kittens and send us some photos. Very much appreciated.
I have an HND Level 5 in animal management which was a two-year course, this allowed me to get my current job in a veterinary clinic.
I am currently studying to become an Animal Nursing Assistant in the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise. After this year I am hoping to begin my studies to become a registered veterinary nurse.
