Dog Walking & Home boarding
Dog Walking-Port Seton, Longniddry, Tranent,Prestonpans
Welcome to The Doggy Minder website.
My name is Lorraine Strachan. I have ran my dog home boarding business for the last 4 years and now both my kids are at school full time I am expanding the business to offer dog walks. I provide a dog walking service (Mon-Fri) in East Lothian for Port Seton, Longniddry, Tranent and Prestonpans.
I will be going two group walks per day with a maximum of 4 dogs on each walk. The cost is £10 per dog which includes pick up and drop off, a full 1 hour walk and ensuring your dog has water and has been dried if needed on return.
You will be able to keep track of how much fun your dog and their new friends have with the regular facebook photos that we post.
New doggies will be lead walked until we get to know each other and establish a good recall - I always have lots of treats to hand! A weeks trial will be offered to make sure all the doggies get along together and you feel happy & secure.
For your peace of mind
Dog boarding for Edinburgh & The Lothians
Are you concerned about leaving your dog in boarding kennels as they may become unsettled and frightened?
We offer a friendly family environment where your dog will have a home from home with their own bed, food and favourite toys, not to mention lots of fun!
I am a fully licensed and insured dog boarding service. As a home boarding service your dog will get individual care and attention, because we only take a few dogs at any one time.
Your dog will live with us in our home along with our Springer Spaniel Sam and kids Jack & Amy. We have a large enclosed garden and have access to parks, seaside and countryside walks.
Walkies, food and play times are essential parts of any dog’s day and we will be happy to follow your dog’s usual routine to minimise disruption to their stay. Owners are asked to bring the dog’s own food, bed and favourite toys. For added security, dogs will wear The Doggy Minder identity tag at all times.
We believe it is important you feel confident that your dog is happy while you are away so we will keep you up to date with text, email and Facebook photos.
Owners whose dogs have not stayed with us previously are invited to make an appointment to come and meet us, with their dog, sometime before the boarding date. This gives owners an opportunity to view our facilities and to make sure their dog will be happy with us.
I can be flexible so just contact me with your requirements and I will accommodate where possible.
The cost per 24 hrs of boarding is £20.
Here are a few snippets.
"Excellent care, my dogs were treated as one of the family would thoroughly recommend."
"We are sure Roku wants to stay with them again (and again) for home boarding. We cannot recommend Lorraine highly enough!"
