Nearly three years ago I lost what I can only describe as the heart of my home, my beloved cocker spaniel. Since a young age I had begged and begged for a dog and after recieved multiple presents of dog costumes, dog teddies, and a dog robot I finally was allowed a dog. Whilst in the process of convincing my parents I posted adverts for dog walking around my local village which, as I was only about 8, I would do with my mother. I started out walking a little westie who was a joy to walk and loved interacting with people.
However when a new family moved in on my road with a Saint Bernard I wasnt aware of the ride I was in for (not literally!). By this point I was around the age of 12 and was quite tall for my age so was able to tackle this beast by myself. Although Shane wasn’t the biggest fan of walking, and I mean we'd get to the end of the road and he would sit down, he enjoyed escaping from the owners house and going to our local pub where he would just sit outside. I have never met a dog with such a strong personality and was so intelligent!
I’m 20 and I’m in my third year at Sheffield Hallam University where I am studying Law. I’ve been a pet sitter on Pawshake for over two years now, however as you can tell from my stories of Tumble and Shane I have more experience than that. My mother is a Guide Dog Boarder so I have a lot of experience of training dogs and good practices for walking on a lead. After loosing my dog and moving to a new city I have decided that really what I need is some doggie attention and love.
Laurel has looked after our little love a few times and I cannot recommend her services highly enough - organised, friendly, and so good with her we can see the differnece compared to when we used to use a boarding cattery.
Thank you Laurel and look forward to booking you again on our next trip :)
Percy had a lovely time with laurel. House was left spotless as well! I would definitely use Laurel’s services again!
