About mandy

I am an genuine dog lover and have been since the day an old collie turned up at my door when I was a kid. I had so much attention to give it, but being only eight and not the head of the household, my parents said I had to say goodbye. Obviously the dog was lost; but I didn't want to let it go! I didn't understand about the responsibility that comes with having a dog. Thankfully it came to a point my life where I had the time to get a pet and I got a dog named Barney who I rescued from the cat and dog home. I fell in love with him straight away. Of course, all dogs go to heaven and it broke my heart which made me vow I'd never get another. But now I dog sit/walk and its great fun. I have years of experience and I'm fit enough to give the most energetic dog a walk and a long one at that. I have a back garden and live near Inverleith Park and the Water of Leith. I am very experienced flexible, caring and conscientious. Your dog/dogs will receive great care and attention in a dog friendly home. Ps the picture with the dogs in the van was a housesit in France watching 6 dogs and a farm . I also looked after 8 dogs in Spain this year. That was a fantastic experience also.

Please make sure your dog is micro chipped, and no visitors living in their fur :) and preferably toilet trained. Thank you :)

    Mandy took excellent care of Roly. He arrived home happy and tired!

    Roly had a great time I am sure! He loved meeting the other dogs. Happy to see the wee man again. :)

    Mandy was amazing from the get-go with Vera who, at 7 months old, is high-energy and still learning to behave properly. Mandy was keen to understand what would make Vera settle and enjoy her first time away from home. She has a great outdoor space which Vera loved to explore. Mandy sent videos and regular pupdates to me which meant I could enjoy my holiday, without worries. I could not recommend Mandy enough and she’s definitely been a hit with Vera who’ll be having all of her holidays with Mandy from now on! She’s such a lovely lady who is a natural with dogs.

    Mandy was great with Oban, he took to her immediately. She has a genuine affection for dogs and is both kind and fun. I wouldn’t hesitate to ask Mandy to look after Oban again . I liked the fact she sent me a photo on the first day to reassure me all was well
