About Kirsten G

I love dogs and it's fortunately reciprocal too. It's been like that since I was brought up with German Shepherds as a child.

But presently I live without a garden, so caring for a dog would include a lot of walks, and tie me down, so I thought: That'll be the problem others have too! How about I help them out and I get my love for dogs covered in the process? Et voila - Pet & Care was set up here on My Dog Buddy.

I do some training and grooming, but only what is natural in the day to day care.

Available to view: membership of Disclosure Scotland's PVG Scheme and diploma from work with Pet Care Network.
Small flat, so every walk is a proper walk in surrounding parks and area. Inside the flat your pet will be given lots of attention when its ready. Some dogs are a little confused about why they are removed from their home at first, so I keep a quiet home and sit on the floor until it is ready to come say hi. It seems to work well.
A day in the client's home is 8 hours and above. Because of travel, shorter stays of up to 4 hours will be charged at half the rate and 4-8 hours at full rate. A full day include a couple of 20 mins walks. Adding a one hour walk adds £10 daily.

A day in my home is minimum 4 hours and up to 8 hours and depending on work of client etc. a quote will be created to suit both the client/dog and Pet & Care's need. Includes a walk of 20 minutes per 4 hours. If a full hour walk is required, it's £10 Extra.

24 stays include 3x20 minute walks. If you wish another one hour walk can be added at £10 for each walk each 24 hour stay. If this is to be in clients' home, we'll discuss travel.

NB I only do care and boarding on holidays for known clients.

    Really happy to find such a lovely and friendly individual to look after our hound. Kirsten was very relaxed, very knowledgeable and very dog-friendly. Highly recommended.

    Kirsten helped us on a short notice and looked after our both dogs while we had to work. Both Mona and Robin looked happy after staying with Kirsten. Thank you so much!

    You are very welcome. They are good company to each other and to anyone enjoying their visit. . . . And actually not as big dogs as I'd imagined. See you again some time.

    Laska bounced home and was a very happy doggo for spending the day out with Kirsten!
