About Laurie

I am a dedicated pet owner I currently have 2 dachshunds (smooth and wirehaired) 2 cats (Sphynx and Devon Rex) and 1 bearded dragon. The cats tend to stay upstairs and the dogs are not allowed upstairs so even if your dog is not cat friendly they will be fine here with me. I have been around animals all my life and I struggle to find sitters who can offer the love and care I can. I am happy to visit your cat at home and feed and make sure litter tray is clean, and I can board dachshunds and other small breeds (providing they get on well with my own dachshunds)

I will provide daily photos and videos and will treat your precious pet like I treat my own dogs and cats. I live next to the beach so they will get lovely walks and will get lots of attention that a kennel will not offer. I am confident looking after all animals such as spiders, insects, tortoises, rodents, amphibians, fish but I am frightened of snakes 🐍 .

My daughter age 12 is also an animal lover and will sometimes accompany me on visits and walks. I have a full DBS as I work within local council. I have full cover pet sitting insurance that covers stays, visits and care through Protectively/ AXX to give you that extra peace of mind.

Your dogs will feel like they are home from home, they can snuggle next to me on the sofa, they even have their own green little sofa if they prefer. I have a dining room where they can also relax in. My garden is fully paved and has tall 6ft/ 5ft fences and is very secure and private and it even has a 3 meter wide patio cover over the back for those dogs who don't like the rain.
They will have full run of the downstairs but I do not allow dogs upstairs this is especially important for Dachshunds backs and I also have experience of IVDD back disease and I have 2 soft memory foam ramps to make getting on and off the sofa easier and safer.

I walk my own dogs a minimum of twice a day and these walks can be around the locals streets or to local parks and fields and then beach if weather and tides permitting. I can adapt to meet the needs and requirements of your dog.

I can offer your precious dog a home from home so they can have an amazing holiday with me as an extension of my family and give you that peace of mind when you are away on your holiday that your dog is loved and cared for.

I will only board dogs from the same household along with my 2 dachshunds and I will arrange a local meet up beforehand to see if your dog/dogs get on with mine then if this succesful we could arranged a home visit so your dog can familiarise themselves within our home.

Your dog will never be left longer than 2 hours and I also have a webcam so I can check in on the dogs.

I can offer daily visits to care for cats and other small animals I can visit to meet your pets require and will follow all instructions given.

Laurie is a fantastic sitter and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her. Our dachshund loved his time with her, we were kept constantly updated with pictures and videos and it was so lovely to see him enjoying his time with her and her two dogs. She took the time to learn about our dogs medical condition which really shows how much she cares for the dogs she is looking after. We will definitely be using Laurie again for our next trip!

This is the first time I have left my dog Harper, with a sitter and Laurie has been absolutely the perfect choice. I have found Laurie very professional, knowledgeable, caring, trustworthy and her communication whilst looking after Harper has been fantastic, sending regular updates, photo's and video's during Harper's visit. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Laurie, and will certainly be using her services again. Thank you for being "brilliant" Laurie!
