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.

    Very happy to leave our dog Tia with Carol and Kevin. It was nice to go away for the day and not worry about our new dog. She was exhausted when she came home and has done nothing but sleep since! Thank you :)

    Aaawww you're very welcome. I'm not surprised she's so tired she played with Charlie all day and had great fun 🐶

    Carol and Kevin were the perfect couple to look after Dougal. They wanted to get to know him first so that they weren't strangers at the time of my holiday. During his stay Carol sent me photos of Dougal having a great time walking in the woods, chasing his ball and collecting plastic bottles! He was happily pampered in their home too, being allowed settle beside them at night. Thank you Carol and Kevin
