About Steven

I am 49 years old and love animals, especially dogs. I had a dog growing up, Sam who lived to 14 and we lost our collie Mitch last year, also aged 14. Over the past few months, we have looked after several friends dogs while they were on holidays. This has helped fill the void and everyone is encouraging me to look after pets as a job. My partner Ashley also loves dogs and you can see a few cuddling with her in the profile pictures. We both work Monday to Wednesday so we try to look after dogs Thur-Sun every week if possible.

It will be a while before we are ready for another dog of our own so I am really keen to have other peoples dogs stay with us. I know how stressful it can be for both owner and pet when they are separated

but knowing they will be well cared for can make a huge difference. Your dog will be the centre of attention and hopefully, we can become a home from home anytime you need to go somewhere.

I live in a quiet area in Dalkeith, near several parks and have a huge garden for your dog to play and feel safe. There are no young children in the house and you are welcome to visit anytime to make sure it's perfect for your furry friend. I am motivated simply by the look of happiness on a dogs face when you give it attention, affection, food and walks. It's not difficult but I do take it seriously. I will keep in touch with pictures of your dog via WhatsApp

or Facebook as often as you want. Please contact us anytime for dog walking, daycare or overnight stays.

Steven was brilliant with Nala keeping me updated with how she was getting on. Highly recommended and will use again in the future!

Steven has been amazing looking after Billy. Billy is not the 'easiest' dog to look after and I often worry leaving him. However, I was really reassured with Steven as I had regular news and pictures. I highly recommend!!
