Ben, dog sitter in Edinburgh
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.

    Ben liked after Lucy while we were away for a long weekend, having looked after her before. Lucy was delighted to see him and she came back to us totally relaxed and happy. I can't recommend Ben highly enough. Knowing Lucy is well looked after means we could relax and enjoy our break.

    Ben looked after our rescue dog, Lucy for a week while we were on holiday. I think we were more anxious than Lucy! However, Ben quickly put us at ease with his calm demeanour and great rapport with. Lucy. Ben sent us regular updates when we were away. When we returned Lucy was relaxed and happy and we were delighted! We would definitely like to use Ben again and would highly recommend him to anybody.

    Ben looked after our anxious border terrier - however she was super happy and relaxed when I came to pick her up! Delighted to have found Ben in our area and will definitely be using his doggy services again!
