About Kenneth

What is your motivation for being a pet sitter ?

As experienced pet owners, I am excited to offer dog walking and pet sitting services in our new home in Gorgie/Chesser, Edinburgh. My partner and I live on Saughton Park itself and we step out onto the park daily. With a large communal green space and public park, your pets will have plenty of room to play and exercise. Although we currently do not have a pet of our own, helping those in need of pet sitters is a therapeutic and healthy job.

Do you have personal experience?

I have cared for a variety of dog breeds throughout our lives, from bulldogs to mixed breeds, big and small, young and old, so I know how to cater to each pet's unique needs. As a photographer and academic, I'm able to provide attentive, around-the-clock care, while my partner who works nearby can also assist as needed.

Do you only take vaccinated pets inside your home

For the safety of your pets, we only accept animals with up-to-date vaccinations. Our home provides a comfortable, brand new environment, and we have no other pets or children living with us. We look forward to giving your beloved companions the same loving care we've provided our own pets over the years. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Revathi, 2024-07-13

I had to travel away from Edinburgh for 3 whole weeks, the longest I have ever been away from my dog Egan, who has severe separation anxiety. I was a little worried and apprehensive, but Kenneth put all my doubts to rest from the very first day. Egan took to him from the moment they met, and was very excited and comfortable when I brought him to his house, immediately sniffing around and exploring the place, and greeting Kenneth and his partner with utmost enthusiasm.

Kenneth has been so kind, patient and understanding with Egan, tending to his wants and needs while setting appropriate behavioral boundaries, like he were Egan’s own parent. He made sure to regularly update me with pictures, videos and messages to keep my anxiety at bay, and was always available to chat and discuss things.

Egan did not panic, get upset or display signs of missing me even once, and had the time of his life at their house! He was treated like a king, being allowed on all the furniture and into every room of the house, which is what he is used to at home. He ended up quickly getting very attached to Kenneth in just a short span of time and following him around everywhere. He has developed a level of trust and affection that surprises me and warms my heart.

When I was unable to fly back to the UK on time due to an unforeseen emergency, Kenneth was very concerned and understanding and tried to help out with sorting Egan’s dogsitting situation as much as possible, even offering to cancel his personal plans for us.

I would highly recommend leaving your pet here due to the excellent level of dedication, communication and empathy that Kenneth displays, not to mention an absolute value for money!
