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 only own small animals including lizards, fish and hamsters, but always find I surround myself with animals - big, medium and small, scaly, 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. My past experience has allowed me to interact and care for animals of all different ages; young and old, various personalities (no one personality is the same!) from hyper to very shy and nervous and at various stages of health;

completely

healthy on no medication, to animals needing oral as well as medication via injections. I am currently undertaking a dog first aid & CPR course and have even started participating with a client's dog in dog agility classes. 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 (including working from home if you prefer), 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 30 mins - 1 hr (including travel time, around core working hours 0830-1200 and 1400 -1730) 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.

Vanessa, 2019-11-26

Lauren was great. She visited us before she came to walk/look after Sammy and ensured that she got to know him on the day and took notes to remind her of relevant details. All went smoothly on the day and we received assurances via photos/texts. He was clearly comfortable both on the walk and in our home with Lauren and accompanying boyfriend. We already have another booking.

Karen, 2019-11-08

Excellent sitter and walker, Lauren showed a natural love of dogs and quickly understood their quirks. Wonderful humorous photos and updates; it gave such a lift knowing our pets were happy and at home while we were away. Highly recommend fir versatility & good etiquette when the unexpected happens.. thanks Lauren, see you next time!
