Dog boarding

I am happy to offer a home boarding service for existing clients’ dogs at a cost of £25 per night. I only ever board one dog (or one family group of dogs) at a time & dogs are cared for as my own. Please ask for further details if you are interested.

Availability update

As reflected in my calendar, I will be unavailable for dog walking from 22nd December ’10 to 5th January ’11 inclusive. Many clients will likely be on holiday at this time of year anyway, & I hope this gives those who are not plenty of notice to make alternative arrangements for their dogs if necessary.

I am now operating at almost full capacity on most days & therefore clients who use my service on an occasional rather than a regular basis may find that I don’t always have availability, particularly when requests are made at the last minute. I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but it is for the welfare & safety of all clients’ dogs that I must limit the number walked on any particular day.

Let The Dogs Out has been operating for a whole year & it’s time to renew my dog walking insurance. I have chosen to take out a policy with Pet Business Insurance this year.

My cover includes:

  • Public Liability (injury to persons & damage to property) up to £2 million (for any one accident or cause)
  • Care, Custody & Control (accidental loss of or injury to animals in my care) up to £5000 (per animal)
  • Key Cover (costs incurred due to loss of any keys entrusted to me) up to £2000 (per year)

This cover compares favourably to that previously provided by NARP (which I used in the first year).

During my first year I have found that many clients (& their dogs!) value the social aspect of the walking service I provide. Under my new insurance, I will now have the flexibility to walk dogs in groups of up to 6 (previously 4), where appropriate.

Should you have any questions about any of the above, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Photocopies of my insurance documents are available to clients upon request.

Client Testimonials

Thank you to everyone who provided testimonials at the beginning of the year. These have now been added to the website & can be viewed here.

Planned changes to the service

As of 12/4/10, all walks will be of 1 hour duration i.e. I will no longer be offering 30 minute walks. This is because the overwhelming majority of my clients request 1 hour walks so fitting 30 minute walks into my schedule is becoming increasingly difficult. The rate for 1 hour walks will remain unchanged i.e. £10 for the first dog, £5 for each additional dog from a given household.


I will be unavailable for dog walking / sitting on the following dates:

  • Sat 27 March
  • Mon 12 April
  • Sat 24 – Sun 25 April
  • Sat 1 – Sun 2 May
  • Sun 30 May
  • Sat 5 June
  • Tues 29 June
  • Sat 3 July

NB with two exceptions these are all weekend dates so will not affect the majority of clients.

In addition to the above dates I also plan to take a week’s holiday at some point over the Summer. I will be sure to give you at least a month’s notice of when this will be.

Remember, you can always check my calendar if you are unsure of my availability.

Molly & Max in the snowBrrr… Let The Dogs Out has survived our first Winter! However, we have moved a little to the North. After moving house at the beginning of the year, I am no longer based in Pathhead but in Blackford in the South of Edinburgh. Sadly this has meant saying goodbye to some lovely clients who I am no longer able to reach, but on a positive note it has allowed me to welcome some great new dogs into my ‘pack’!
