About Kim

I have over 30 years of experience caring for dogs, small, medium and large breeds. I adore all animals and would treat your pet with the same love and affection as I would if he/she was my own. My love of dogs developed when I was very young and I used to watch my dad care for and train his working Police dogs. I have over the years owned cats, birds and small animals and I would love to help anyone who wants the reassurance of leaving their pet with a genuine animal lover.

I live in a ground floor garden flat which is 5 minutes away from Victoria Park, 15 minutes from Glasgow Green and Botanic Gardens and 10 minutes from Mugdock Country Park. There are plenty of walks on my doorstep including a large field directly outside. I hold a full-time job however my hours are flexible and I can work from home. I can assist any evenings, weekends or overnight stays. Daytime or holiday care will be considered depending on my workload. I have passed a full security clearance including a PNC check (required for my own job).

Most pet owners regard their pet as a family member and if possible would like them to make an appearance on their wedding day - I can make that happen for you if you'd like to get in touch to discuss further.

I appreciate that every pet owner treats their pets in different ways and I would completely respect their wishes - from walking on the lead only, plenty of cuddles to a free run of my home (including sleeping on the couch!) It is a daunting experience to leave your beloved pet with a complete stranger however please be assured your furbaby will be in good hands.

Please note I haven't ticked 'large breed' purely for the reason I may not be able to provide transport for them however I am happy to help with any size of dog if you are able to drop off/pick up any very large breeds of dog. Comfort is of the utmost importance, some dogs find traveling in a car nerve-wracking so I wouldn't like to put a Great Dane in the back of my Ford Focus!

If you are looking for someone reliable, a genuine animal lover and want the peace of mind knowing your pet is being cared for then please get in touch. Kim x

Kim looked after my 10 month old puppy, Kirsty, for 3 nights and was absolutely brilliant. No concerns at all, I had regular photos and videos of all of their time together and picked up a very calm and happy wee girl. Could't recommend Kim highly enough and will always ask her to look after Kirsty in the future.
