Why Use Our Dog Walking Services

With Love at First Sit Edinburgh, your dog will not be taken to the nearest available park or walked next to the busy road. Instead, your dog will have some stimulating walks where they can be themselves and concentrate on what dogs love doing best, having a sniff in the woods, splashing in the water, discovering new lands, climbing on some hills and occasionally racing with the walker.

As part of each walk, Your dog will play mentally stimulating games with recall and command practice.

5/5

Blanka has been the dog walker for our puppy Ruby since February 2020. We took her on as she was extremely professional and organised, being able to provide all the necessary paperwork and taking the time to get to know the specifics about our dog.

Our puppy is a border collie beagle cross breed called Ruby and Blanka has been fantastic at working with us to train her. She has helped us to improve her recall and socialise her with other dogs in a safe way.

Blanka has been respectful of our property and I’ve had no concerns about her entering our house to pick Ruby up when we were not present.

I honestly couldn’t recommend Blanka’s dog walking services enough. We have moved to the Scottish Borders so sadly could not keep using her services. Ruby absolutely loves Blanka and was always so excited and happy to see her. I had complete confidence that Ruby was in safe hands and having a great time on her walks with Blanka.

Shelby has a great time on her walks with Blanka. Blanka is amazing with her and has really helped us with training Shelby. Blanka also keeps us informed about what they’ve been up to, where they’ve been and if she is planning a different adventure for the walk. Blanka really cares about animals and seems to have an affinity with them. She is also 100% trustworthy and reliable.

5/5

I first approached Blanka in February 2020 about using her services for my dog Chino ahead of my wedding and for the day of my wedding as a dog-sitter.

I was quite worried about how Chino would be with a stranger as he is very much a one-woman dog. He also has/had an issue with black dogs having been jumped on when he was young. He is also very vocal with anyone he doesn’t know well and will bark at them a lot.

Blanka was fantastic with him, and within a few weeks he was happily and confidently going for walks with her. She has also been helping with training and has taught Chino several new commands which have helped with his reactions to other dogs and in particular black dogs. He is a much happier and more obedient dog as a result.

Now Chino runs to greet Blanka with a wagging tail when she comes to collect him – even when it’s raining and he HATES the rain and particularly puddles (he will walk around or jump over them). He has even gained confidence on his walks with Blanka to paddle in the sea – almost unthinkable a few months ago. He is less reactive to other dogs too and this is entirely thanks to Blanka’s walks and training.

She has built up a trusting relationship with Chino, and me, and I would highly recommend her services.

Blanka is a great dog walker and my dog love her. She is very reliable, friendly, very flexible and adaptable and totally security conscious. When you leave your dog under the care of Love at First Sit, she looks after it as if it was her own. Nothing is too much trouble and your dog will have a great time.
