About Frances

As a life long animal lover, I have had a dog in my life since childhood. My current pets are an older Cairn Terrier who is well socialised and laid back and a recently added Cairn pup who loves everybody. Dogs coming to stay brighten up his life and he is very bored when his pals go home!

I have 8 years experience of running a busy pet care business but stepped away from that to have more family time. I offer an experienced home from home to suitable dogs comfortable in a family setting, assured of attention, affection and walks.

I have cared for large and small dogs, oldies and youngsters as well as many with illness or just in need of extra TLC. Dogs with health issues are assured of receiving all medications accurately, including eyedrops and injections.

I adhere to a care plan based on details provided by owners. Diet, exercise and normal daily routine is maintained as far as possible.
It is helpful if owners share their pets likes and indeed any dislikes which might cause them to react. Good/Bad habits are also helpful to know in advance, so that I am one step ahead of anything they might get upto!

I have 3 very dog savvy children, who have been surrounded by visiting dogs since a young age. They understand that dogs are not toys and are living creatures, which need human contact but must also have their boundaries respected.

I am at home during the day so your pet will have company and walks.
We have a large house with a large secure garden and many parks and wild areas nearby. In addition we have a holiday home on the coast, so with owners permission dogs often enjoy a bit of a beach holiday too. Its only fair!

If your dog is happy to cohabit with friendly resident dogs and is relaxed around children then I can offer a knowledgeable caring enviroment for your dog's holiday.

Quality dog walking:I do not do "pack walks" with numerous dogs. There are a maxmum of 2 dogs per walk ensuring individual attention and safety.

    Patch, our Bichon/Shih Tzu, spent four days with Frances and her dogs. She was extremely flexible with the pick up and drop off to a local address. Patch had a great time despite the Scottish Weather, taking long my walks and playing out! I have no hesitation recommending Frances and hope that we can use her services again in the future!

    He was great fun and kept himself busy playing all day. Unfortunately due to the weather he arrived as a white fluff ball and tended to go home grubby but happy and I suspect, tired!
