About Steven

I am 51 years old and love animals, especially dogs. I had a dog growing up, Sam who lived to 14 and we lost our collie Mitch almost 2 years ago, also aged 14. Over the past 18 months, we have looked after several friends dogs and a few through Pawshake. This has helped fill the void and is now my part-time job. My partner Ashley also loves dogs and you can see a few cuddling with her in the profile pictures.

It will be a while before we are ready for another dog of our own so I am really keen to have other people's dogs stay with us. I know how stressful it can be for both owners and pets 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 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 dog's 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.

Doggy Day Care
Jayant, 2020-03-16

Steven was a perfect host to our pup! This was the first time we left her with someone away from us for an entire day, and we were so happy to see that our girl Precious was completely at home with them. We are definitely going to go to Steven and the great care and love of him and his wife, whenever we need someone for Precious in the future.
