About Barbara

Hi, I'm Barbara , I'm 27 and I am a Civil Engineer. I work near the Pentlands which is a great dog walking place, on my lunch time I usually go for a walk to try to pet as many dogs as I possibly can. Although I am more exposed to dogs, I am happy to look after both dogs and cats. i am a animal lover and most animals like me too.I have had pets all my life and have been sorrounded by them since I can remember, sadly some of them are not around anymore but they will always be part of my life.

Daniel is 29 years old and he is a personal trainer, he owns his own private personal training studio with a big outdoor area, including a football pitch.

We live in Canonmills, and there are many parks and walks near by that are great to take dogs, and we live in a medium size apartment, so a smalll to medium size dog will be very comfortable here, We are more than willing to accomodate. Send me a message and I can see what I can do if you would like your pet to stay with me. There are many dogs near where I live and i am friends with a few of them, specially toby who lives across the street.

We live on the ground floor of an apartment block, that is a minute walk from a fairly big park, also were willing to drive to different places where there are more opportunities to walk up hills, which will give me and the pet a good workout. we can also do home visits, I work 9-5 but i am very flexible out of those times and also on weekends. Daniel owns his own business and can be very flexible with time, when we have pets we arrange our work schedule so the pet spends minimal time on his/her own. we are happy to pet sit and or take you dog on walks.

Barbara and Daniel were fabulous dog sitters - they are basically obsessed with dogs, and were so thoughtful about taking care of Daisy. They kept me updated about how much she was enjoying herself and when my flight home was delayed they were so reassuring and flexible. They live in a great area, a heaven for dogs!

We loved Barbara and her partner Daniel! Barbara is the most prompt communicator I have yet met on Pawshake, both before we decided to have them dogsit and during the time we were away. Our one-year-old cockapoo seemed to have a fantastic time with them, and they sent us pictures and videos of him which allowed us to relax when we were away without worrying about how he was doing with a new sitter. Daniel and Barbara were kind, friendly, clearly love dogs, and were very conscientious about how they looked after him. We trusted our guy with them, and hope to use them again. Highly recommended :)
