About Lauren

I'm an animal lover and have experience in pet sitting, both daycare and overnight stays. **Please note that I am currently only able to offer overnight stays in my home for small rodents or other similar pets due to my lease agreement but I am able to offer home visits, house sitting and walking services for all other types of pet.**


I work as a freelance translator in addition to pet sitting. This work is highly flexible meaning I can fit my projects around your pet's needs. I'm keen to work with all kinds of pet, no matter how big, small, fury, scaly, enerjetic or shy. I understand that plans are subject to change and so I have a flexible cancellation policy. I also understand the anxieties around booking a pet sitter, so offer a free, no-pressure meet and greet before booking and can provide DBS check results on request.

I am home most of the time due to working from home and pets will not be left alone for longer than 1 hour for day care or for longer than 3 hours for overnight stays. I live with my boyfriend who is also experienced in pet care and who will be on hand to help out in emergencies but otherwise your pets will be cared for by me. Pets can be housed in the living room where my own pet rats are located or in my spare bedroom/office area if you would prefer that they are kept separate. Under no circumstances would our pets be introduced and I am sure to wash my hands and change clothes after handling my own pets.

The services I offer are:

Dog walking:  I can offer walks between 30 minutes and one hour long (please reserve 2 walks but let me know you'd like to combine them).

Home visits: I offer up to 30 minute visits morning, afternoon or evening with your pet during which I can feed them, play with them, let them outside to go potty, and/or administer medication as necessary. I am able to provide up to 2 home visits a day depending on your needs – or can combine two visits into one hour if that suits your pet better. While at your home, I can bring in/take out wheelie bins, water plants and bring in any post or parcels you might have received while away.

House sitting services: Your pet will receive lots of attention and snuggles and up to 3 walks per day as needed. House sitting can be offered for day visits or for overnight stays depending on your requirements. I am able to remain in your house for most of the day and pets will not be left alone for longer than two hours at a time. 

**For home visits/house sitting services, please ensure that all pet equipment such as a harness and leash, food, treats, and toys are left in a visible place**

Doggy day care: Available for all types of small pet. Your pet will be well looked after and will not be left alone for more than 1 hour at a time, and dogs will be given up to 2 walks per day depending on their needs. I can provide constant supervision if necessary, please indicate this when booking. **Please note that I do have pet rats of my own so can only care for non-reactive pets that will not disturb my own.**

Small animal boarding (listed as dog boarding): I offer boarding in my flat for small rodents such as rats, mice, and hamsters. Please contact me first so I can explain which option to select when booking. **Please note that I do ask that owners provide their own cage and food for this service if possible to ensure your pet feels as comfortable as possible in a different environment. However, I do also have a small cage that can accommodate up to 4 bonded small .** I'm experienced in rodent care through having pet rats of my own, so you can rest assured that your pet will receive the highest standard of care. Your pets are guaranteed to receive lots of socialisation and treats at Casa Lauren! 

If you have any questions about my services, rates or experience then please don't hesitate to send me a message and we can discuss your needs :-)

I wish I could give Lauren 6 stars out of 5. Our cats love her, we love her. She sends regular photos to put your worries to rest, and looked after our cats for another week.
