About Lauren

Hi there,

I've always loved animals, although haven't committed to deciding what I want for myself yet, which is why I would like to offer my services to you. I moved around a lot growing up, so have been limited to being able to only own small animals in the past including lizards, fish and hamsters, but always find I surround myself with animals - big, medium and small, cute, cuddly, furry and not.

I have a relevant background with a Biology degree, concentrating on animal behavior and animal ethics. I have been trained to care for dogs, cats and small animals at a RSPCA centre, have completed work experience at small animal and equine veterinary clinics as well as observing what training future guide dogs go through for the blind. I am currently undertaking a dog first aid & CPR course, have started participating with a client's dog in dog agility classes and am looking to get some more experience in horse lungeing as well. I am frequently asked by family and friends to pet-sit for them and would like to extend my experience with other animals and characters.

I am available for house sitting, dog walking, dog/cat care as well as small animal care in the Guildford/Woking and surrounding areas of Surrey. I can provide morning and midday services of walking, animal checkins and care for half an hour to 1.5 hours (including travel time) as well as evening services for longer periods and I have a car which allows me to pick up/drop off, if required.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch. Let’s see if I can tailor a plan for your family to help you out.

Lauren has taken care of our cat for us several times now and consistently provides stellar service. It’s great to be able to go away and know that our

pet is in such capable hands!

Lauren came to our house for a few home visits, to look after our cat Maggie. She also fed our fish and watered our plants. It was a huge relief to have Lauren look after Maggie. We had only had Maggie a few months, from a rescue centre, and were very reluctant to use a cattery. As soon as we met Lauren, we had complete peace of mind. It is obvious what a kind, intelligent, ‘animal’ person Lauren is as soon as you meet her. We were amazed at every tiny detail she retained from our brief meeting. Nothing was too much trouble.

We also loved the regular photos and updates while we were away. I have no doubt that Maggie got some serious TLC, and we would recommend Lauren to everyone!
