About Laura

Hello!

I'm a Canadian who has been living in Dublin for 11 years. I'm a restaurateur turned pet minder 🐾

I offer dog walking as well as cat visits and dogsitting. My stays range anywhere from 1 night to 3 weeks and I have experience with every breed from a 2kg Chihuahua to a 100kg Pittweiller. I have  3 years professional experience and am comfortable with rescues 💕 I travel all over Ireland, so don't let distance keep us apart! 

Why choose me to care for your beloved pet? When I'm with your furbaby they are my world. That means on walks there are no earbuds and no phone scrolling {but lots of picture taking!} and on sits I am with them consistently aside from a couple hours per day. 

I have dozens of happy clients and still keep in touch with all of my pet pals 🥰

My services are as follows:

Dog Walking : pickup & drop off with a stroll around the neighborhood or to the park.

Duration - 30 mins

Home Visit : feeding, water, mess pick up, short walk. For cats a walk will be replaced with playtime 🧶

Duration - 30 mins

Overnight Dog/Cat sitting {at your house} - plant watering, trash take out, mail collection, 2 walks per day, mess pick up, feeding and of course loads of playtime & cuddles! I'll send you at least one photo and/or video per day too - probably way more. You'll likely want to tell me to leave you alone 😉

Duration - From 3:00 pm on the start day until noon on the last day. I may be able to start earlier the first day depending on my schedule.

I'm also happy to give oral medication if required.

Your pets will have ridiculous nicknames and likely new songs written about them after an hour or two with me!

* There is an extra charge for the following :

- Extra pets {10€ per pet, per day}

- Out of central locations {more than 1 bus from my location, 6€ per weekday}

- Staying later than noon on the last day of dog sitting or starting earlier than 3pm on the first day {20€ up to 3 hours,10€/hr after that up to an additional 3 hours}

- Bank Holiday Weekends {50% Fri - Mon}

- St. Patrick's Day + March 18th {50%}

- Good Friday, Easter Sunday, Easter Monday 50% each day

- Christmas & New Year's {Dec 23,27 & Jan 2nd 50% per day Dec 24,25,26,31 and Jan 1st 100% per day}

* Please note Meet & Greet arrangements should be made as soon as possible as I'm unable to reserve tentative dates. After the Meet & Greet,  bookings  will need to be made through the app the same day to lock in your dates 🐾

I highly recommend Laura. She was good with our 3 dogs and Cat. She spent time getting to know our pets, me, & how our house/pack worked for over an hour at our meet & greet. The dogs responded well with her. When we came home, the house was as we left it and the pets were in great spirits. So I would recommend Laura & I look forward to doing business with her in the future.
