About Sandy

I have lived most of my life with dogs from a Dachshund and Sckipperke while at school to a cross Labrador Keeshond and Border Collies as an adult and father. My son has a Lhasa Apso that I have dog sat in Wigan and when he visits me.
After dog walking a friend's daughter's Schnauser I decided to explore the possibility of sharing rather than owning my own dog. I have since dog sat and walked a variety of breeds of dog. I am happy with dogs over 3 years old. I live on my own and feel though as a senior citizen myself can appreciate and care for more mature dogs and give their owners peace of mind. I am available for occasional day care but not if you are looking for it on a regular basis as I don't take more than one dog at the same time.
I have recently moved from my end terrace house in Midlothian to a first floor flat in a beachfront block in Fife. Because of the size of the flat I will no longer be able to host larger dogs or more than one dog at a time.

    Sam stayed with Sandy, well cared for, very attentive host, with lots of spoiling, cuddles and sleeping on various dog beds, whichever he chose. Sandy kept in touch with lots of lovely photographs, which were much appreciated and also, reassuring to see him walking on lead, happily and content, which made my days away much more relaxing. Thanks and will certainly use Sandy again

    Thank you Nancy for the wonderful review. He was a pleasure to look after and would certainly be welcome to return as he appeared to enjoy his stay here. I am glad that the feedback added value to your time away.

    My dog had a fantastic time with Sandy a home away from home for him. Sandy is very attentive and gave regular updates for my peace of mind. I will definitely use Sandy again

    Thanks for the great review. Alfie is quite a character and was fun to spend time with. He took a while to take to the beach but enjoyed meeting the other dogs there. He is welcome to return in the future.

    Our dogs seem to have had a good time with Sandy. The pictures and regular updates were great and put us at ease as this has been the first time we have left them. Thank you 😊
