About Ben

I've grown up with dogs since the age of 5, and raised my beloved collie lab, Parsley (the older black collie lab pictured), from the age of 9 weeks, to when I lost him last year when he was nearly 16. He was an incredibly happy and healthy dog all throughout his life, and was much loved.
I've also had a great amount of experience caring for family and friends' dogs (and cats!), and have exceptional references.
I'm a freelancer who can work anywhere as long as I have my laptop with me, so I am ideal if you are looking for someone who can care for your dog in your own home. I've done a fair amount of housesitting since I joined Dogbuddy in spring 2015. And they are, of course, welcome in my own home too. They would get a lot of attention and as much exercise as they could want!
I've been a regular walker in Inverleith Park for many years and have, as a result, become an expert frisbee thrower!
Please note that, due to past experience, I've had to take on a policy of only accepting male dogs who have been neutered.
