Our two very adored boys have just returned from their very first four week holiday with you. I say holiday, as that was just exactly what it was; endless walks, new friends, love, cuddles and pampering, what more could you ask for your four legged pals?
We made a conscious decision to bring George and Fergus up from Edinburgh, on a friend’s recommendation as we couldn’t face the thought of leaving them in boarding kennels for such a prolonged period. Any worries of separation anxiety and stress were immediately dismissed when they entered your care. You very quickly sent us amusing doggie updates which confirmed they had settled in immediately and had left any loyalties to us very much behind.
It made a very special holiday for us even better knowing they were so relaxed, at home and happy. On our return on Saturday they looked so healthy, and smelled DIVINE. Since coming home Fergus has definitely got the “Eileen blues”.
We have now made another conscious decision: that from now on any future doggie boarding will be with Eileen. It’s definitely worth the extra distance from Edinburgh! Huge thanks to you again.

We left our five year old Lurcher, Bella, with Eileen for the first time last week. She is an incredibly sensitive dog and, sadly, ten days before, we had to have our other lovely girl, Eve, put to sleep so Bella was missing her terribly. Bella was met with such a warm welcome by Eileen who could not have been nicer. It was such a relief and I drove away feeling that Bella would receive all the cuddles and love she needed. I wasn’t wrong. I picked her up six days later, having had a number of texts from Eileen to say she was ok and settling in well. She had such a lovely time, wonderful long walks, played with all the other dogs and laid in front of the fire, her favourite thing. I am so thrilled to have found Eileen whom I know I can entrust our very special girl to. I could not recommend her more to anyone trying to make the difficult decision about where best to leave your dog whilst you go away. If Eileen lived a little nearer I would even consider Bella going for just odd days as I think she already misses all the fun she had whilst there! Thank you Eileen for all your care and attention bestowed on Bella.

Thanks for the great care you gave to Tessa when we were away. We think she was in the huff the day after we picked her up, missing all her friends! It’s so good to go on holiday and know that your dog is happy and being well looked after. Thanks again. Eileen.

Tessa is a really lovely and extremely well-mannered 8 year old Springer spaniel who is sadly also an epileptic.
Thank-you so much for making our Lily part of your family while we were away. I was never concerned for her happiness and well being as I knew right away she was in good hands. When we visited you prior to our trip Lily was immediately comfortable. She did not display any stress and in fact made herself right at home in your lap! Your manner with dogs is obviously in tune with your love for them – they must sense that. When we picked Lily up she was relaxed and happy and acted as if we had never been away. She came home to us more fit than we left her – not to mention quite a bit cleaner ! Hairy hugs from all of us.

Lily is a gorgeous 10 year old Siberian Husky cross Springer spaniel … I’m not making this up … who has just relocated to Aberdeen from Alaska.
After a two week stay with Eileen, Coco is finding life back home rather dull I fear! Her holiday from us consisted of fabulous walks every day with lots of other interesting dogs, heaps of cuddles, and the type of care that managed to put our minds at rest from the outset. Eileen gave us lots of updates, dealt with a vet-based emergency in a perfect manner, and even managed to get our rather chubby weimaraner considerably slimmer! I can honestly say that the service we received (and it is so much more than a ‘service’) was incomparable. I would recommend Eileen to anyone and know that Coco will thoroughly enjoy her future stays at ‘I Love Dogs.

Thank you so much for taking such good care of my little Lola. Felt like she had a lovely holiday with you. I now no longer have to worry about her while I am away because I know she is in safe hands. Many thanks, again.

Thank you so much for taking care of Farley while we were away. He loved every minute, came home a relaxed and happy dog, and will be eagerly anticipating his next visit!

Thanks Eileen for providing a real home-from-home for Sydney. I could see how much he enjoyed his week with you. Having delivered Syd to you with a sore paw and a supply of tablets, I SO appreciated you getting in touch to reassure me that all was well!
Holidays are so much more relaxing when you know your dog is having such a

Thank you SO much for taking such care of Tattie-Bogle and Hobbes. They clearly loved being with you and they both looked SO well and happy after my break. You REALLY are special and I am REALLY lucky to have you on our doorstep. I will never worry about going away again! Many thanks again – especially for being so kind to my old boy.

Thank you for taking such sweet care of our dog, Ginger. We knew that while we were living in Scotland we would be taking frequent holidays. Finding ‘Love Dogs’ was a great feeling knowing Ginger would have her own version of a 5 star holiday!
She always smells yummy and looks trimmer and happy when we come to pick her up! We love that you take extended walks – multiple times a day – and that you give her lots of snuggles and kisses.
Thanks for taking such exceptional care of our furry family member!
