Hi, I'm Laura! I am a young writer who loves animals and has some extra free time on my hands. I am living in Munich for a few months, and I would love to help you with your beloved pets while I'm here!
If you like to see how your pet is doing during the day, I would love to send you a photo or message update each visit.
Of course, I also make sure they are well-fed & hydrated and that their litter box or pee pad is clean and ready for use. If you like, I can also open windows while I am at your home to replenish the fresh air (and make sure they are closed again before I leave), collect mail, water houseplants, and pick up pet food & supplies. I give them their medicine if needed and have studied how to give animal-massages to soothe aches and pains in old or sick pets. If your little one has high-anxiety during thunderstorms, I can visit to calm them and make them feel safe with blanket nests, games, light background noise, and gentle hugs. If your pet is temperature-sensitive, I can also visit to cool or heat the room during significant changes in outdoor temperature.
+ Walks last a minimum of 45 minutes, including outdoor playtime, socialization, and errand running (for dog food, cat litter, etc.)
+ If the weather is bad, I will still take them out for fresh air and to relieve themselves, but I will spend a majority of that time in a safe indoor environment playing with them to burn off some of their excess energy.
+ Two separate walks daily if you would like
+ Begin and end with a well-being & cleanliness check for your pet, a water refill (& food if you like), and an environment check (to make sure they have toys, fresh air, and a fresh litter box or pee pad)
About House Visits:
+ Visits last a minimum of 45 minutes
+ Playtime, water refill (& food if you like), Medication administration (if needed), light grooming, and an environment check (make sure they have toys, fresh air, and a fresh litter box or pee pad)
+ Home cleanliness check (If they have gone to the bathroom or dug into the trash while you were gone, I will take care of it.)
About Overnight Stays:
+ Hours flexible to when you need me (meaning I can arrive earlier and leave later than a typical overnight stay if you need.)
+ Full care of your pet (feeding, playtime, outdoor time, cleaning, medication, etc.)
+ Basic household upkeep (collecting mail, watering houseplants, tidying up after your pet, pet supply errands)
+ Before I leave, I will make sure your little one has everything he needs until you come home!
It’s no surprise that our pets become our family members (often the favorite family member). We love them, we want to give them the best life possible, but we also have other things in our lives that need our attention. For when life calls you away, I will be there for your little buddy to make sure she gets everything she needs just as I would my own pet. I’m patient, devoted, caring, and knowledgeable. More than that, I love seeing them happy. You won’t have to worry about the level of care and attention your furry friend will get.
Over the past ten years I’ve moved a lot - New York, England, France, and now Munich. Because of this, I haven’t been able to adopt a pet as I would have liked. Eventually, I began helping other people out with their pets which brought so much joy back into my life. Someday I’ll have my own puppy (or three), but until then I’m happy to help other people give their little buddies the best possible quality of life every day.
I’ve dealt with dog fights, cat fights, high-anxiety animals, sick animals, shy animals, stubborn animals, animals with dietary issues…everything. Except for the most serious medical emergencies (thankfully), I’ve seen it all.
I know how to perform CPR and the Heimlich Maneuveron dogs and cats, though I do not hold certification. I am also familiar with breathing issues related to brachycephalic breeds and will do everything I can to avoid situations that trigger breathing difficulties. If they do begin to wheeze, I know a few tricks to help them breathe more freely again.
Some breeds, such as dachshunds and beagles, are especially prone to spinal issues such as IVDD. I have some extra knowledge on the best ways to carry and handle these types of dogs in order to avoid the development of spinal problems.
Overall, I will pay attention to your pet to make sure her needs are being met. If she’s sick or scared, I will know, and I will do everything in my power to fix that. And if she’s happy, I will be too!
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me through Pawshake. I'll be happy to help in any way I can.
Laura ist eine absolut zuverlässige und liebenswürdige Person. Sie ist Hundeliebhaberin und kennt sich sehr gut aus, gerade auch mit brachyzephalen Rassen. Mein Hund und ich schätzen uns glücklich sie gefunden zu haben und geben Sie nicht mehr her. 💛
Laura was fantastic with my dog. I felt completely at ease on my vacation and will definitely have her back. She is very trustworthy and my dog loves her.
