About Marsha

From as young as I can remember I have loved dogs. Growing up, I spent a lot of my time in my Granny's house around her her two: Tossan, a gentle doberman and Asa, an energetic and handsome collie. Being around dogs from a young age has made me feel comfortable and at ease around them. When I was six my parents rescued Barney, an alsatian/collie cross from the Dog and Cat Home. He was simply amazing. I have so many fond memories growing up with him, from all our walks to cuddling him up on the sofa at night.

Recently I started my own dog walking and boarding business and I'm thoroughly enjoying it! I began 'King’s K9s' and since September 2016 I have managed to build a great client base of lovely people and absolutely amazing dogs. The dogs I walk regularly range from big greedy Labs (I maybe should stop with the treats!!), the cuddliest Staffordshire bull terrier's, a crazy little Border terrier; who at the age of only one has the courage of a lion! And plenty more(pug, french bulldog, springador). I also have regular boarders who now see my house as their own, I love getting them settled in!

I live in a house with my partner and two room mates. The house is very relaxed and dog friendly; any dog I'm lucky to have the pleasure of walking/boarding will have a free roam. I have a van with cages and also cosy duvets so any dog can fit and get cosy. Pick up and drop off I can do, too. There are many places I love walking and loads more I look forward to trying. Simply being around a dog makes me want to get up and go a wander around the local park or somewhere more adventurous (like the beach five minutes from my house or a wee walk along the Water of Leith walkway).

In the past two years doing professional dog walking, I’ve just got more and more passionate about dogs. It’s a lovely feeling waking up on a Monday morning raring to go to work. I'm young (24), fit and healthy, and ready to love and care for your dog :)

    Max had a great time with Marsha. From the pictures he clearly had a very fun day and come back tired and happy.

    Max was a total joy to have Matthew. He was cuddly in the house and crazy fun on his walks with the group. Would happily have him back anytime!

    Prompt and personable, and it was nice to be able to see photos of our dog out having fun through the day on FB. Would highly recommend!
