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.

    I was nervous leaving my furbaby with someone after a previous bad experience but Carol made me feel very at ease and obviously cares very much about the dogs she looks after and making sure they are happy and settled. I got regular updates and Buddy came home happy and tired out (what every puppy-mummy wants) I will be booking again! Thanks Carol!! 😁

    Thank you Gill for the great review. Buddy is a wee character but great fun and loving. He would be welcome back anytime 🐶

    Our rather spoilt welsh springer spaniel, Amber, spent 2 happy weeks with Carol. Carol sent me some lovely photos of Amber playing happily and reclining on the couch!! and this reassured me that she was happy and had settled down well. Back home she has settled down and forgiven me for leaving her - she has in the past gone in the huff! I would gladly leave her with Carol again.
