Hi I’m Steph! I’m a health professional, living in the Bonaly area of Edinburgh. I love animals of all shapes and sizes! I have grown up with dogs and cats, alongside a combination of; rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, fish.... anything I could persuade my parents to get me really! I therefore know how big a part of the family pets are and how important their happiness and well being is to you as their owner. My normal working pattern is Monday - Friday 8:30-4:30, so I tend to have more availability for day care and boarding over weekends, but I have availability for visits, walks etc. around my working hours. I can offer visits for all animals, and walks/boarding/day care for dogs. I have a car so travel is not an issue! I live with my partner Euan who would also be around most of the time to help out and have fun with any furry guests. We currently have a 2 year old red fox Labrador who is very friendly, energetic and great with other dogs! Living in Bonaly we have unlimited access to a huge range of walks around the Pentland hills right on our doorstep, which is a big bonus for any doggies looking for a sleepover or a play date! We live in a ground floor flat, it’s not huge (1 bedroom), but the living area is spacious and the unlimited access to ‘off road’, beautiful, countryside walking more than makes up for this! There are communal gardens right outside the flat for shorter walks/toilet trips if required in between walks! I can be very flexible in terms of the number and duration of walks, my own dog Bracken is very energetic and needs lots of exercise so long walks are not a problem. Equally, if your doggy prefers more chilled out walking, that’s no problem either- just let me know what your pooch needs! Your dog would have access to all parts of the house but mainly the lounge/hall/kitchen areas. For bedtime, wherever you feel your dog would be most comfortable is fine with us! But they would probably be sleeping in the lounge or hall. They can be separated from Bracken during the day/night if needed. It is unlikely that that your dog would have any time alone during a stay but if so, it would be no longer than around 1 hour. I am passionate about caring for animals and making sure they have lots of fun and cuddles, so you can be sure that your pet would be very well looked after. And of course, I am happy to provide lots of photo updates! Feel free to get in touch to chat more about what you are specifically looking forand il do my best to accommodate! Steph
Steph and Euan were very responsive and reliable. our cats were looked after as per instructions. We would not hesitate to ask them again.
Amber had a lovely time with Stephanie. She loves to walk and was taken on a long hike in the Pentlands. One happy dog came home the next day. Wouldn’t hesitate to use again.
