Northern Irish vet student needing a doggy fix here in Edinburgh. In my third year of vet school I know how to keep your animals happy and healthy, and can be relied on to ensure they are safe. Here in Edinburgh unfortunately I am unable to commit to a pet full time, and that's why I'd love to help other people to give their animals some good old TLC - since I have plenty to spare!
I have a car so can drive for longer walks! (Also in case of emergencies)
My availability is variable due to university schedule, but I will always be flexible where I can with timings, and I love working with all kinds of animals, every type of social, exercise and cuddle requirements!
I enjoyed working in a cat/dog kennels for 3+ years before leaving for uni and have a lot of experience with other peoples' dogs. At home I have a cat and a horse, and help look after many other horses and ponies for a friend.
One of my key interests at vet school is behaviour! I love seeing animals with different personalities and am capable of tailoring the experience to this. For instance I will keep it all calm for a more shy animal, but if a very energetic dog comes my way I'll make sure they get loads of exercise and playtime, and I'll cater to every little quirk!
On top of this I can offer some basic training, continuing your work you've been doing so they don't forget the training and routine, or even teaching them something new while you are away! Fun fact: I have taught my cat at home to give her paw and stand on her hind legs and speak for treats - so this isn't just limited to dogsled
Katie was a natural with Buddy, I could tell right away he was in good hands.
She keeps me updated with messages, photos and videos and it seems they've enjoyed their walks as much as each other.
Don't book her though, I'd prefer it if she was only available to take my dog out.
This is the second time Katie has been taking care of Billy, and again we are really satisfied with her service :) Billy was very well taken care of, he went for a long walk in the fields despite the cold weather, and we had regular pictures and news. We are super happy, and would definetly recommend !
