About Delaney

I am a vet student from Canada in my fourth year of schooling at the University of Edinburgh. I have a previous degree in Animal Biology, during which I focused my studies on animal behaviour and welfare. I am quite experienced with positive reinforcement training methods, and have trained many animals using positive reinforcement, including dogs, cats, and horses. I have worked in companion animal veterinary clinics for a total of 9 years, and have experience dog walking, as well as pet sitting dogs, cats, birds, and small mammals. I am comfortable administering medication to your pets orally and via injection. I also have experience handling dog-aggressive dogs, and feel comfortable walking dogs that have shown tendencies for aggression towards other dogs. I am happy to look after pets of all species and ages!

I am located in Morningside, and am able to travel to other areas in Edinburgh. My schedule can be quite flexible, depending on my lecture schedule. I am usually available after 5pm, and always do my best to accomodate daytime requests as well. I am happy to send photo updates on your pets daily while I am looking after them! I am currently available for dog walking and pet sitting, home visits, and house sitting. My references are available upon request.

I look forward to meeting you and your pets!

We booked Delaney to look after our two cats. She came to our home twice a day, as arranged, and sent us photos every time, along with little updates about how well the cats were getting on with her. We came home to happy, healthy cats in a nice clean living space.

Delaney was great and we are very happy with her service. We will definitely come back to her next time we need someone to take care of our cats!
