About Kimberly

A Vet Student's Home for Doggy Care - Where doggies go on their own holiday! I'm a veterinary medicine student at Edinburgh Uni (Dick Vet). Along with pursuing a career as a veterinarian, I have a passion for caring, interacting & bonding with dogs as individuals. Through my upbringing on a farm & education, I developed a strong love for dogs. I understand that owning a dog is much more than just a responsibility. He/she is a friend, companion, & family member. Through my extensive pre-vet & vet work experience in vet hospitals & boarding kennels and undergoing the intensive vet studies programme & training, I'm highly experienced in canine husbandry; handling; nutrition; 1st aid/intensive & critical care; dog training & behaviour. I’m super comfortable in administering meds; preparing special dietary requirements; caring for injuries/wound management; providing daily dental care/grooming, walks (blocks-miles) by the sea for swims or in parks for ball launching & running!

My husband (Tyler) & I along with our 10 y/o rescue Alsatian (Gretchen) moved to Edinburgh f/USA. Gretchen was then diagnosed (@Dick Vet) with 2 chronic spinal neurological diseases which eventually paralysed both her hind limbs over the span of 1.5 yrs. Therefore, I was Gretchen’s dedicated primary caretaker 24/7 when she had complete back-end mobility & function loss (peacefully let go in 2015). I’m skilled to care for all requiring my full attention day or night (disabled/immobile dogs, geriatric, puppies).

I fully understand the difficulty in finding a trustworthy, reliable dog sitter who is willing to go over & beyond to ensure your dog remains happy & comfortable during your time away. I always enjoy providing the best possible TLC for any loved one even if last-minute or planned in advance. Located at Western Harbour Breakwater (at the seaside expanding into Firth of Forth) next to Newhaven Harbour & Lighthouse Park with loads of pedestrianized areas for loads of running & playing!
