About Ailsa

Hi there, I'm an experienced owner of all types of pets. Dogs will be welcomed into my home as though my own. Not afraid of muddy paws on furniture! I have two very friendly mini schnauzers, and a hound of my own who would love some new buddies. I stay in a bungalow with a secure fenced back garden to which they have free access through the patio. (Although real escape artists may get out)

I'm happy to take dogs of any age and type (not non-neutered boys) Although it's Important for their own good they are sociable or they'll just get sick of my two. I currently work from homes so will be free to give constant care and attention from then onwards. I am happy to discuss reduced rates for longer stays as I know kennel costs can be crazy. Especially with multiple dogs Although I'll take a maximum of two per stay to ensure proper care. I can possibly offer a pickup and dropoff service with prior notice.

Would also now like to request that people don't contact me about making a booking and then disappear, as I and my partner do plan our schedule around guests. If you make alternative plans then let me know as soon as possible. I am very flexible and reliable in my approach to my guests and would never let an owner down, im more than happy to take same day bookings. PLease also consider using my service me if your dog has some small behavioral problems such as trouble with housetraining and nipping. (though must still be good with other dogs) I also split 50% of the money to a small charity that rescues dogs from romania, including one of my own.

Our dog had a wonderful holiday. Ailsa did a marvelous job, shared photos and updates regularly and treated our pooch as one of her own over Christmas. I would definitely recommend Ailsa's services to anyone looking for a responsible, reliable and caring sitter - I will definitely leave my dog there again. Thank you so much!!!!!

Ailsa has been nothing short of fantastic. Friendly and helpful. We are trying to buy a house and it's been extremely stressful. Having Ailsa look after Cole while we sort this out has been so reassuring. Cole isn't the easiest dog to look after but she did brilliantly,he was obviously at home.

Highly recommended.
