About Lauren

I am a teaching assistant with extra time and a passion for animals. I do not live currently with any pets, so can meet each particular need, but would require vaccination if there is a likelihood of contact with other pets. I have buckets of patience and love to give to cats, dogs and rabbits. Also I have great access to country walks including Five Rise Lockes, St Ives and the National Trust property East Riddlestone Hall. My previous experience with pets include three character-ful cats; with medical complications that required administration of medication and post-operative care; 5 chickens, a lively fox red Labrador. I have four years experience pet sitting two lovely, elderly springer spaniels and am a return pet sitter for two beautiful rabbits. Finally, I am passionate about providing enriching and individually tailored care for your pet/s. It would be an honour to learn about their personalities and routines, and provide lots of cuddles, play and adventures

I can visit or walk up to 3 pets at one time. I am available for home visits lasting 1-3 hours, when I can cuddle, play with and feed your pet. Also, I can administer oral medication, either in food or a treat, or directly to them. I am comfortable with tablet and liquid form. Furthermore, I can follow vet instruction for physio, such as specific play or closely monitored exercise. I am happy to develop a schedule around you and your pets needs regarding working hours, feeding times and medications. As well, for puppies or kittens I can assist with socialisation and your preferred training methods, such as clicker training and treat based rewards.

Furthermore, I offer walks for dogs, up to 3 at a time from the same household, from 1-3 hours. I offer shorter walks as part of routine house visits. These walks will be focused on enrichment, and what your pet/s are most comfortable with. I have access to a beautiful natural area, from a canal walk, national trust site, parks and nature reserved. Therefore I can pick up from your house, or walk in your own local area if you are more comfortable with this. I will bring a spare lead, poo bags and hall for safety.

Finally, during school holidays, I can work to your work and childcare schedule, providing wrap around day care including visits, feeding and long walks your 8-12 hour working day.
