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.

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 :)

    Funky and Angus had a great time with Marsha. It was obvious that they were very well looked after and that Marsha is a doglover. Would definitely use again and recommend Marsha to others.

    I was very impressed with Marsha as soon as I met her and saw the way she was with Lucy and another dog we went for a trial walk with. Marsha is very experienced with lots of different dogs and temperaments and is clearly someone who really loves dogs :) Marsha looked after Lucy while we were away for a few nights picking her up from someone else who was looking after Lucy as well and kept us updated. Wouldn't hesitate to use Marsha again or to recommend her to anyone looking for a dog walker/boarder.

    Marsha has been excellent with Guava. My dog is usually shy at first but she managed to make her at ease from the very first moment they met. Marsha also walked Guava with other dogs and that is a bonus for Guava who loves playing and chasing other dogs. I would definitely recommend Marsha to everyone.

    Thank you for your review Alice! Guava went from very timid to very loving and cuddly! She was great to walk and also have some chill time with! Would like to see her again :)
