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.
For the lst 3 and a half years I have been an assistant bar manager. On my days off I enjoy helping close family and friends with walking and boarding dogs. I've helped with the most lively dogs that need a good hour's walk, as well as older ones who need more attention and a chilled walk. Resultantly, I feel I have gained a lot of experience with a range of dogs and now I'm going to try and do it myself. More recently I have began walking dogs for an Edinburgh based dog walking company and I'm thoroughly enjoying it!
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. Having a car which I'm not 'car proud' of is a bonus! I love just whisking the dogs off to wherever I feel may be good for that day. 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).
I feel even though slightly less experienced than some, I lack no passion or go. I'm young (22) and fit and healthy, and ready to love and care for your dog :)
