A dog’s home away from home 🐶

About Lynsey

We are an active couple living near Stockbridge in Edinburgh who are both massive dog lovers. We have both grown up owning our own dogs and have looked after many different dog breeds. Our location is central and ideal for dog walking with very close access to local parks, and within easy reach to Arthur’s Seat, Blackford hill and the Pentland hills. We would love to have our own dog eventually but we also love travelling every so often and so can’t commit to one just yet, so we would love to help other people out with dog sitting and dog walking when they need it.

We have both been animal lovers our whole lives and have always loved owning our own pets. I have been a dog sitter for many years, and even when young I helped look after neighbours and family friends dogs when they were away. I am an animal biology graduate and currently studying veterinary physiotherapy. I have lots of experience looking after dogs, from large breeds to small and have loved every minute of it. I know that every dog has different needs and I am fully prepared and capable to meet all your pup’s needs and provide them with lots of attention they all deserve.

Please don’t let the low response score put you off, my old flatmates and I used to use dog buddy and looked after many amazing dogs and received a lot of fantastic reviews. However my flatmate forgot to close the account when we all moved out our flat, so there were many unanswered messages from owners when I reopened our account. Nevertheless we are both very excited to be able to dog sit again.

    Lynsey and Duncan took great care of Avril and made her feel right at home! I couldn't thank them enough!

    Lynsey and Duncan were excellent with Cooper. We felt he was very well looked after during our first holiday away from him. They were extremely flexible, accommodating and were quick to respond when he had a medical problem that required vet attention. Being a puppy Cooper was given lots of attention and they continued his routine of toilet breaks in the middle of the night without a problem. We're delighted with the care the he received and will certainly be in touch again in the future!

    Cannot recommend Lynsey and her partner enough for dog sitting. Oscar had a great time staying with them and I received updates and pictures of him cuddled up on the couch and out walking up the pentland hills. I will definitely be leaving him with them again as they were very reliable and responded to all my messages very quickly. He is an older dog and their ground floor flat was so ideal as he had no stairs to climb! Could instantly see how much they love dogs and Oscar warmed to them straight away which he doesn’t always do with new people. Thanks again for having him!
