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.

    Carol and Kevin are absolutely brilliant! They helped us out at the last minute even when they were dealing with the stress of their own dog being unwell. They were so kind and attentive to our puppy Copper, and helped with training her on walks. Would highly recommend!

    Thank you Pearse for your lovely review. Copper was just a sweetheart and so easy to look after. She would be welcome back anytime 🐶

    It was a last minute booking and after initial meeting Carol and was at ease with leaving Romeo for the night. I received regular updates and a photo. I would highly recommend Carol and Romeo wants to go back again in the new year...
