About Us

Laura with dog in arms

Having grown up with a natural love of all animals, Laura always wanted to work with them to fulfil her passion. In recent years, she worked with street dogs in South America – from rescuing, fostering to rehoming the numerous dogs out there. She also worked as dog walker in Australia and as a volunteer for the RSPCA in London. Working part time as a nanny, she knew she wanted to do something more fulfilling with animals and so set up Pet Sitting Finchley in 2016.

The company strive to help all aspects of animal care and work hard to accommodate all sorts of requests. Laura is trained and confident to help with medical care too, pilling and administering injections – in particular to diabetic cats. She has also completed various courses from Pet First Aid to Working with Fearful & Reactive Dogs.

The demand for their services grew quickly and so required Laura to grow a small team of experienced and qualified animal lovers to help. Laura runs and manages the business, plus the services of dog walks, house sits and pet visits too.

Choosing the right vehicles to safely transport all the lovely dogs around wasn’t an easy decision!

vehicles

We have chosen MPV’s as they are akin to travelling in a car, with lots of room and windows to see out of. We chose not to brand the vehicles as this becomes a target for thieves.

The vehicles are not fitted with crates or cages as not all dogs are comfortable with these and can become a potential hazard should we unfortunately be involved in a collision.

Instead, seat belts and restraints are attached to the dogs to allow them a little bit of wriggle room, but not so much that they cause chaos! This is inline with UK laws.
