Why choose a Dog Walker or Pet Sitter?

At Midlothian Happy Paws we understand the day to day demands that life throws at us; Long hours at work, tiring commutes, school commitments, changes to personal circumstances, may be even some me time! …This comes from our own past experiences and the list that goes on! 

We are a society that does not wait until retirement to be able to own and care for pets. However life can certainly be stressful making it difficult to be able to fit everything into one day, including time for your much loved animal. This is where Midlothian Happy Paws are here to help you with your pets, whether this is your dog, cat or smaller furry friends.

Our pets are a huge part of our life; the bond is second to none and brings a positive influence to the health and well-being of both human and animal! Pet’s live in our home and form our family, we talk to them and enjoy their company and with this they are very much close to our hearts. Having owned cats, dogs, horses and smaller furry animals we understand how precious these times can be.

A little bit about us…

Midlothian Happy Paws started due to a change in personal circumstances, Laura decided to focus on a new career in caring for dogs and smaller pets. Having previously worked with horses and missing working in the outdoors it was the perfect opportunity to follow some dreams. This was back in 2016 and we haven’t looked back. In August 2018 Mr Happy Paws - Greg joined the business full-time also, tiring of life within an office and having helped establish the business it was a no brainer that this would happen given Greg’s love for animals. 

We both run identical vans, we walk in separate locations, we are very much committed to providing a Professional Pet Service and do our best to be as flexible as possible.

The Midlothian Happy Paws home is made up of six dogs; 3 Labradors, Nemo, Ada and Bracken and 3 Cocker Spaniels, Max, Maddie & Beans … it is safe to say that there is never a dull moment under our roof and our dogs bring us lots of fun and enjoyment. Our dogs are our passion, outside of our business we love nothing more than spending time with them, training them and bringing out the best of their weird and wonderful characters.

Having used Pet Sitting services ourselves for a number of years we know what our customers expect, so you can be in the knowledge that your pets will be very well looked after in our care.
