About Damien & Kirsteen
We love dogs and are happy to make our furry friends feel welcome, safe and at home. We've a warm, peaceful, comfortable home with a secure large garden, and plenty of local places for doggie days out. Youngsters get fun and exercise outside, so indoors they are quiet and relaxed, though they're always happy to give us a paw in the kitchen or entertain guests. We love all dogs from pups to golden oldies who need a comfy sofa and snuggles, and if your wee one likes his own space, then that's fine too - he could even have his own room.
Nearby places we walk dogs include: Figgate Park; Innocent pathway; Newhailes; Carberry; Musselburgh beach and lagoon, but we have a secure garden for pups, oldies and home buddies.
We're both here all the time so we can fit around the dogs' needs, whether that is a quiet place to recover from an injury or surgery, or somewhere to have fun while owners are elsewhere. We both grew up with dogs and have been involved in dog rescue and rehabilitation for several years, so we have a good range of experience of different breeds and personalities. We understand the importance of kindness, routine, fun training and stability, also the extra love they need when their owners are away.
We offer doggie daycare and boarding, and can walk local dogs.
We're totally flexible about pick-up and drop-off times, but ideally between 8.30am-10.30pm.
We've never had serious illness here. We'll check the vaccination records for Parvovirus, Distemper, Hepatitis and Leptospirosis. (N.B. We don't require kennel cough vaccinations.) Please ensure that flea and worm treatments are recent.
Our PVG certificates (in respect of suitability for working with vulnerable groups) are viewable on request.
**Gifts of unwanted dog equipment would be most welcome - e.g. toys for our toybox, harnesses and other items your dog no longer needs would be very useful for our foster dogs and dog refuges.**
