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.

    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 😊

    Thanks for the review. Glad it made a difference getting regular updates available when it suited you to see them.

    Bailey seems to have had a great time with Sandy, he had lovely walks, of which I was sent some nice pics. I got regular apdates on his day. I’ll happily book Sandy again. 🙂

    Alfie's second visit to stay with Sandy. As before excellent communications with Sandy and it's clear that Alfs had a great stay with walks to the pond and chill time on the couch.
