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.
