About Ryan

I have always loved animals and this passion has extended into my studies. It is something I want to pursue as a career and this allows me to do so.
My family have always had pets and I've grown up with a variety from cats and dogs to fish. Even the less common such as a horse and parrot.
Once I left high school,I went to study a vet nursing preparatory course at Edinburgh Telford College followed by studying animal care up to HNC level at SRUC Elmwood Campus where I continued to improve my practical skills by working with birds, horses, reptiles and amphibians. As part of the animal care course I managed to pass the kennel club bronze dog citizenship award as part of a dog training module I done.
All my certificates can be presented for added reassurance plus I have references from the vet practice I was on placement at.
I don't drive but can travel to the city centre of Edinburgh as South Queensferry has a bus service and rail service. The house itself is an upstairs/downstairs semi-detached terrace with an enclosed front and spacious back garden. It is also a decent size so can accommodate for any size of dog.
Lastly there is plenty of places to go on walks and for your dog to run around!
Plus I have friends with dogs so your dog can play with them and lastly they'll always be someone home so your dog isn't left alone.
It's not just dogs I will look after. I will look after any other pet(s) you have!
If you have any questions please leave a message and I will get back to you.
The dates I am unavailable I have been booked to look after pets by people not on this site.
I'm more than happy to adjust my prices for returning customers.

    Ryan was dog sitting for 6 nights in July. Due to our dog having to emergency surgery she was still in recovery by the time the booking started but Ryan accomadated well to her needs. We came home to a very happy doggie who was delighted to see us that had made a friend in Ryan. Her medication and recovery routine was kept going the whole time we were away. Our dogs are part of the family so it's a huge relief to find someone who understands your dogs and your needs. Will book again.
