About Carol

My husband and I are dog lovers who are now retired and have time to spend pampering pooches. We live in a smoke free adult only household very close to the countryside and beautiful woodland walks with our own dog 'Majic' who is a Lhasa Apso. Our garden is completely secure so the dogs are free to wander outside. We have looked after and walked friends dogs even taking them on holiday in our caravan. We would welcome dogs as part of our own little family enjoying walks in the hills, along the Water of Leith and even to the beach. We love spending time with our dog and would ensure that your pooch was pampered in exactly the same way whilst on holiday with us. We would prefer to look after small/medium dogs as Majic is only little. We look forward to welcoming your pampered pooch into our home for lots of fun and cuddles.

    Our beloved pooch went to stay with Carol while we went on holiday. The first time his 4.5 years he has spent more than a night away from family. I was worried about how he would cope as he is the centre of our world, being the "baby" of our family but Carol reassured me before and during his stay. He seemed happy and settled and hopefully he will be able to stay again in the future.

    Of course he would be welcome anytime he was just a pleasure to have stay.

    So reassuring to know Spud is in good hands whilst we are away. We get updates and some very funny photos of him having a great time. He genuinely seems a bit reluctant to come back to his usual routine with us, but we feel the same coming away from our holidays too! We have no hestitation in recommending Carol and Kevin.

    I think our Sparki had great holiday with Carol. We could enjoy ours having everyday a message with picture. Thanks!
