About Damien & Kirsteen
We cater mainly for small dogs and pups, or family groups. They feel welcome, safe and happy with us. There's a lovely garden where they can mooch or play with friends, while indoors is relaxed, cosy and comfy. We've a warm, smoke-free, peaceful home, a secure organic garden, and lovely local walks. We love all dogs from pups to golden oldies who need a comfy sofa and snuggles, and if your wee one needs space then he could have a private room.
Places we walk dogs include Portobello golf course: Figgate Park; Innocent pathway; Newhailes; Musselburgh beach and lagoons, Carberry Estate.
We're 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 a fun time while owners are on holiday. We grew up with dogs, foster dogs, and have experience of many different breeds and personalities. We understand the need for kindness, routine, fun training, stability and extra love when a dog's owners are away.
We offer the best quality of doggie daycare, boarding and training that we can. They are walked according to their training needs - often individually or in pairs.
Pick-up and drop-off times are flexible.
To safeguard the pooches, please ensure that flea/worm treatments are recent. We'll check vaccination records for Parvovirus, Distemper and Adenovirus, which are effective for several years.
Our gas safety and PVG certificates are viewable on request
