About Laura

Pet care experience

My partner and I have looked after a variety of animals including our family’s Chihuahua and 17 year old cat. We love all types of dogs (and will be getting our own Pommie in the future!) and look forward to welcoming your furry friend to our home :)

We offer a home away from home for dogs of all sizes, from puppies to seniors, and have experience with different medical conditions, rescue dogs and some behavioural issues. We do our best to accommodate every dog's needs and their happiness is our top priority! 

We own a safety gate (for sectioning off stairs for puppies and carpeted areas for dogs with allergies), provide a range of toys for playtime with different breeds, supervise the dogs in our care with pet cameras, enjoy grooming our dogs, and you can expect regular updates with photos throughout their stay.

Availability 

I am a primary school teacher so am currently free on weekends and school holidays, but my partner works from home Wednesday to Friday as well, so we have great availability. From September, we aim to work different schedules and will be available on a full-time basis :)

Safety, trust and environment

We live in a detached 3 bedroom house with a large, bright and sunny fenced garden in a beautiful green area. We are lucky enough to be right next to Chafford Gorges nature reserve where we walk the dogs in our care regularly. We love exploring the area and visiting our many local parks. Dogs are allowed on the furniture and if we are boarding dogs from different families, each will have their own room to sleep in.

A typical day

My partner and I love to keep active, go on long walks and play with the dogs in our care. We sometimes go on trips, meet up with our friends with dogs and find dog-friendly restaurants too!

Information we would like to know about your pet

We have created a Google form which we would ask you to fill in before your stay with everything we need to know to provide the best care for your dog. Questions include:

- Does your dog have any medical conditions?

- Is your dog neutered/spayed?

- What is their eating, toileting and walking schedule?

- Where does your dog usually sleep?

- How does your dog react to other dogs?

We can host up to 3 dogs in our home at a time and would love to do a meet & greet to get to know them and see how they would get along with any other dogs that we might have during your booking :)

Absolutely excellent, would send my two Dachshunds back to stay with Laura and Kevin anytime. They had a great time and were very well cared for. Lots of updates and total peace of mind.

Trixie had a lovely stay with Laura & Kevin. Laura sent me many photos during Trixie’s stay and kept me informed to how Trixie was settling. Very pleased, thank you.
