My name is Laura, I'm a 34 years old italian young woman.
I am a Master student in Animal Behaviour at Utrecht University.
I have just finished my internship at Amsterdam shelter (DOA), and I am still studying stress-related behaviours of dogs, writing my thesis on this.
In the past 15 years I've been a petsitter (I have worked especially with dogs, but also with cats and birds).
I chose dogsitting as my job mainly for passion: I always have had family pets, and I've always felt strongly connected to dogs. My curiosity for them has always been extremely strong, I love to observe their behaviour to know them better in order to take best care of them.
Walking daily with many different kind of dogs for so many years permitted me to know them in a very deep way, and to strenghten my relationship with each one of them and to increase my competence in order to manage them better and better.
Working in the shelter and studying dogs' behaviour helped me know these beautiful animals in a very deep also professional way.
I am a very serious person, always on time and full of attention for "my" dogs. I love to cuddle them but also to treat them properly when needed.
I hope you will give me the chance to introduce myself to you and to your pets!
I can host dogs at my place only if they are cat friendly, because I live there with my three cats (that I brought from Italy).
If hosting at my place is not possible I can petsit at your house.
I live in Roermond, but I can come to walk your dogs wherever you are (if it's in the nearby)!
Helemaal tevreden over Laura! Betrouwbaar , deskundig en lief voor onze viervoeter! Kivi voelde zich thuis bij haar. Wij bevelen Laura aan!
Laura is a wonderful pet sitter. She is easy to communicate with, well organised, possesses a lot of animal knowledge and generally caring and loving with our furry friends. My dog was super happy with her and spent few enjoyable days in playing, exercising and lots of cuddles. Another extra thing was that I felt included since I had plenty of updates and pictures throughout the day.
