Testimonials

What my clients have to say…

“Thank you for looking after Cali (greyhound) and Fonzie (lurcher) at Christmas time for us. It meant the world to me and that we could all get away as a family. Cali and Fonzie were so well looked after at your house Jane that I think they would gladly have stayed. I loved leaving them in a home environment, that’s where they live after all: in a home, so a kennel environment was out of the question. You supplied a real home from home service in a fantastic, friendly and professional way. It was well worth the drive from Glasgow and we will be using your services in the future. Thank you. I have no hesitation in recommending Jane’s dog services.”

- Lorraine, Glasgow

 

“Jane looked after our two older male greyhounds (Harvey and Jerry) whilst we took our first dog free holiday abroad in years. Jerry had been unwell having had an aggressive thyroid tumour removed a few months previously. So we were understandably a little bit nervous at the thought of leaving them. We immediately were put at ease when we met Jane for a pre holiday visit. Her calm, caring nature and obvious wealth of knowledge and understanding of dogs allayed any worries.

Whilst we were on holiday it was great to receive texts, including photographs, from Jane. This really helped us relax and enjoy our holiday knowing Harvey and Jerry were both safe and happy. 

A couple of months after our holiday we met up with Jane at a Scottish Greyhound Sanctuary barbeque and Harvey and Jerry made a beeline for her immediately tails a wagging! We would definitely use Jane again and cannot recommend her highly enough.”

- Caroline, Perthshire

 

“Jane is always the first person I would contact to look after my lurcher Clyde. She has known him for several years now and has looked after him many times. I always feel confident that he is loved, safe and has lots of great walks when he stays with her. I also find it very reassuring to know that Jane has experience of difficult dogs and can manage Clyde’s unpredictable behaviour – this means I can go on holiday and not worry about him too much. Thanks Jane!!”

- Emma, Edinburgh

“I can’t recommend Jane highly enough both for dog walking and for her dog boarding service. Our greyhound Danny took an instant liking to her and we were so pleased to have found someone so caring & empathic to look after him. We used Jane’s dog walking service for over six months and were completely satisfied – she was always reliable and Danny was always a tired and happy dog when we came home at the end of the day. There are very few people who I trust to care for Danny and I have absolute faith and confidence in leaving him with Jane for boarding, knowing that he will be looked after as well as if he was at home. We were really sad when Jane moved away from Edinburgh to Cockenzie as we weren’t able to use her dog walking service anymore, but we’re just happy knowing that Danny can spend his holidays with Jane and her crew of lovely pooches!”

- Victoria, Edinburgh

“Jane cared for our greyhound , Susie, for 2 years before moving to Cockenzie. We cannot fault the care that Jane provided . This included administering medication and providing a day care service which met both our and Susie’s needs. Susie definitely benefited from being with Jane and her own dogs. Jane is very trustworthy , reliable and caring . We can highly recommend Jane in her capacity as dog walker/carer.”

- Grant & Allyson, Edinburgh


“Jane and her husband Martin at Let The Dogs Out look after my two greyhounds, Timbo and Dooby Doo, whenever I go on holiday or when I head off for a weekend. If I stayed closer to them I would also use them to walk my dogs while I was at work. From the minute I drop my dogs off they relax with Jane, Martin and their dogs, Molly, Dennis, Sandy and little Gizzy. They enjoy an atmosphere that is so relaxed I want to stay myself! Jane keeps Timbo and Dooby Doo as close to there routine at home as possible. They also enjoy several walks a day, playtime, as well as loads love and attention. I can enjoy my time away without having to worry about my dogs.”

- Debbie, Gorebridge

“We’re very pleased to have found such an excellent dog carer as Jane.  We previously used a very good boarding kennels but we find Jane’s service much better because she provides our dogs with a real ‘home from home’.  We feel so much better leaving them in such a homely. caring environment.”

- Colin, Gullane


Ben“Jane has been walking my greyhound, Ben, three or four times each week for the last six months. Jane is 100% reliable, always on time and consistently puts the needs of the dog first. Jane is an excellent communicator and always takes the time to let me know how Ben has been during the walks. Ben loves his time with Jane, and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending ‘Let the Dogs Out’ to any other dogs (and their owners!).”

- Evelyn, Haddington

“Jane had a great way with my terrier Jessie. She was so gentle and intuitive around Jessie’s needs. There are only a few people I trust with Jessie and Jane is one of them. I believe her knowledge and understanding of animals’ personalities and behaviour means she always knows how to respond to their individual needs and match them up correctly on walks. Also, she would take Jessie out walking to different locations where she enjoyed new smells and opportunities to be on the beach or in woodland etc – Jessie loved this! I also liked Jane’s way of providing written updates on her daily care of Jessie which provided great reassurance of her reliability and dedication to my pet. I certainly recommend her to others in need of a dog walking service.”

- Bernadette, Musselburgh

Jane is an excellent dog walker, very trustworthy and reliable.  Her services are to be highly recommended.  She treats your dog as if it was her own and I was sad when she moved from Edinburgh as I couldn’t use her services anymore.  Jane walked my dog Fidra for 18 months, from when he was a puppy, and helped with his training.  He would always wait excitedly at the window for her and Max and Molly to arrive!  Fidra was always tired and contented when he returned back from his adventures with the gang.  I also used her excellent boarding service which is also to be recommended.

- Simone, Edinburgh

Dylan and Roman“Jane walked and provided a day care service for our labradors Dylan and Roman while in the Edinburgh area. The boys took to her immediately and she built a strong relationship with them from the start. This meant myself and wife were able to relax knowing they were in good hands while we were at work. She was also able to improve their on the lead skills and socialise them with many other dogs which has really helped them. We trust Jane so much we boarded the boys with her for a week when we went on holiday, which allowed us to enjoy the holiday completely knowing they were at their home away from home with her. We could not recommend Jane highly enough, as she doesn’t just ‘walk your dog’ but really bonds with it and treats them like they are her own.”

- Ross and Steph, Newtongrange

toby“We think Jane has been doing a really good job with  our collie-cross, Toby. He is always very calm and tired after his walks with her and I think that her wee notes to update on where he has been/who he has been playing with are a really personal touch. She also went above the call of duty and put her doggy first aid skills to use to bandage his poorly paw!”

- Catherine and Dougie, Seton Mains

mylo“Jane has been walking our Scottish terrier, Mylo, for a few months now, twice each week & we are delighted with her work. She is a key holder to our home and we happily trust her with this responsibility. In winter months Jane is considerate enough to leave a light on in the house as the days darken quicker, which means the dog isn’t in the dark upon our return and it is a great deterrent. Jane has built up a good rapport with our dog and he is delighted when he sees her arrive. We vetted a few dog walking companies and we went with our instincts and our heart. When we met Jane my partner insisted we take her on & we have never had any regrets. I have found Jane very reliable and consistent. The little post-it note with details of your dogs activities each day is a wonderful touch.”

- David, Dalkeith

milly“Jane was a great dog walker. We always felt confident that she would look after our cross-breed puppy, Milly, well and ensure Milly had enjoyable outings. She kept us well informed as to how Milly had been each day and made sure we were aware of any problems. We are missing her greatly now she has moved to Edinburgh”.

- Jane and Ian, Pencaitland
