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 'Capital Canines' and since September 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).

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.

    Hi Leah! Thank you so much for your review and letting me have the pleasure of looking after Angus and Funky again. They are a breeeze to watch; great walkers, so cuddly when home and can also are the best ball chasers! Can't wait to see them again :)
