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. It was the best! UP-DATE July 2018 - Off to Spain to look after 8 dogs on a housesit with my partner. Home and open for bookings. :) I took some time off to work with kids. Now back to full-time work with my furry friends. Please note that there will be an increase in price for watching your dog/dogs over the weekend which will be £30 a night for one dog for 24hr hour care which includes 3 walks and plenty tlc :)

    Mandy was great with Ollie. He is quite a nervous little dog after being badly attacked a while ago and Mandy was really confident and he settled in really quickly and was really comfortable. Loved the pics updates too :) Would definitely recommend Mandy to look after your pup.

    Thanks Sarah. Ollie did settle very quickly for being such a nervous wee soul. He made himself at home very easily and seemed ready to take on the day . :)

    I was a bit nervous about leaving my puppy for the first time. Willow loved it with Mandy and she sent me regular photos and updates and took her on long walks over the weekend. A great sitter, thoroughly recommend

    Thanks Zoe. I would have Willow back in a flash. She was an excellent house guest :)

    Skye (our border collie) stayed with Mandy for 2 weeks and clearly was looked after very well. He was in great condition and had been taken on some great walks. He showed obvious signs of being very fond of her when we picked him up. We will definitely board him at Mandy's again (if she will have him!) Thanks Mandy
