About Laura

*All services will be available 7 days a week from 13th September 2024*

Having grown up in the countryside I am a real animal lover and I have experience in both pet ownership and sitting. I have owned (and trained) rescue dogs as well as puppies so I am open to all challenges. I love the presence of an animal in the home, but sadly I had to give up my own dog earlier this year due to family illness. So I am now looking to turn my care and attention to other canines in need of some company.

Walking

I live 5 minutes away from Lloyds Park in Croydon (for field based walks) and Croham Hurst woods (for forest adventures). I rack up over 5 miles of walking each day so if your pooch needs to let off some steam and stretch their legs I am the girl for the job!

Sitting

I own my own property in South Croydon and I am not precious about the furniture so animals are welcome to spend the day or evening at mine.

Can highly recommend Laura to look after your dogs. She looked after ours on two long weekends in a row. The dogs came away happy and content both times and even raced to see her on the second drop off. That is an unusual reaction for at least one of our dogs who is super anxious with new people. Will definitely be calling upon her again.

Familiar with dog training techniques
I have owned and trained two rescue dogs. One had fearful and anxious behaviour due to lack of socialisation as a puppy, and whilst socialisation training helped, I am well used to navigating other dogs in a walking situation. The other had separation anxiety so again training was needed as well as finding ways to keep them entertained (snuffle mats became a godsend!). I have also raised a puppy into a wonderful adult dog, so toilet training etc. are all part of my arsenal.
