About Me

My name is Laura. My love for animals started at a very early age and I could not imagine a single day without them.  I have grown up with a range of different pets from cats, dogs, rabbit, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, chickens, tortoises, Beaded dragons, fish and doves.  I also have my own pets now, two cats called Sunny and Junior, three guinea pigs, rabbit and gold fish.

I set up Safe and Snug pet sitting services in 2014 as a wanted to provide a professional local pet sitting service, where you can have peace of mind knowing your pets are receiving the best possible care from a qualified, experience local animal carer. I ran Safe and Snug pet sitting and dog walking services solo which helps the animals build a close bond and relationship with myself. This helps them to feel more comfortable and relaxed when your away, which in turns makes the whole experience more enjoyable and stress free for them. It also means i can build a close relationship with all my clients and be able to meet all yours and your pets needs.
