About Us

Launched in the summer of 2016, Laura and Fernando wanted to create a business that was personalised, with services that can be adapted to the needs of the pet.

The couples’ 6 years experiences with animals include dog walking in Australia, volunteering and rehoming street dogs in South America, working with the RSPCA in Potter’s Bar, all before deciding to set up their business in North London.

 

Fernando and Laura

The animal-loving couple, who met while working on a cruise ship to the Caribbean in 2011, have decided to turn their passion and experience of caring for sick and injured dogs into a career as pet sitters in the East Finchley area.

Both grew up with pets in their lives, from dogs to hamsters, guinea pigs to goldfish, but had to put their attachment to their pets to one side while they went travelling in their mid-20s.

Laura, 28, explained: “For me, animals give unconditional love. I feel a really strong connection to them and I really enjoy their company. ”

The couple went on to spend a year in Australia and indulged their affection for animals by taking on dog walking jobs. They also spent a year in Fernando’s home country of Chile, where they fostered sick, stray dogs while they were recovering from medical treatment and waiting to be re-homed.

Laura said: “There were so many dogs on the street that need veterinary care and fostering while waiting to be found a new forever home.

“For a few months we cared for Suzy, an eight-month-old mixed breed, after she was left with a broken leg when she was hit by a car. She had to have lots of medication and her wounds had to be cleaned every day. We had to teach her how to walk again.

“She was such a lovely dog that Fernando’s aunt fell in love and adopted her. So we are still in contact with her, which is lovely.”

Laura, who has previously worked as a nanny also added:

“Having worked as a nanny, I know how to behave while working in someone else’s home. I know what it means to be discrete and to care for someone else’s most prize possessions, their children and pets, as well as their property.

“We will provide a professional, personal service and care for each animal as if it is our own.”

The demand for their services grew quickly and so required Laura to grow a small team of experienced and qualified animal lovers to help.
