Pads & Tails


 Offering Dog Walking, Cat visits, Daycare, Nail clipping & Pet taxis

Starting from a young age I always enjoyed looking after animals whether it be my own, friends or Family!

The name Pads&Tails comes about from my first 2 rescue greyhounds. Paddy who was rescued from Retired Greyhound Trust and a handsome blue boy and Tails a beautiful fawn girl who came home from the greyhound kennels I was volunteering for! Sadly they are no longer with us but their memories live on in my heart and work! 

I have a real passion for animals and attend classes and workshops to learn about the different ways in which we can better understand them. Working with dog's everyday is a learning curve and deepens my knowledge of different breeds, Circumstances and Temperaments.

I walk dog's in pack's suited to them. Giving them priceless social skills, as well as enjoying lots of fun and stimulating exercise!

I also offer walks on a one to one basis benefiting Elderly/Young dog's, Injured or Unsociable dogs giving them benefits of being out on relaxing walks!

Edinburgh has glorious beaches and green spaces which I vary daily including  Cramond, Silverknowes, Portobello as well as many others!

I make sure we are away from busy roads so we can enjoy our walks safely!

Dog's are exercised with their 4 legged friends under my constant supervision and once we know each other and with the owners written consent, off-lead!

Collection and drop off is not deducted from the hour walk and I make sure each dog has Fun, Companionship, Exercise and Affection!

Dog's will be Towel dried when required and Given fresh water everyday!

If your dog has a specific training regime we can discuss this and keep each other updated on progress. I will work with you to ensure I am doing all I can do to help them along!

Every owner enjoys knowing what there pet is up too when they're not there I post on my Facebook page stories of our adventures from the day and pictures for you to see how fun it was A text,written note or call to update you is offered too!

My van is set up to transport your pets safely and comfortably with D-rings, Crates, lights, Beds, Easy cleaned flooring and fresh drinking water is readily available!


I worked in Greyhound kennels for 4+ years and still visit regularly to catch up, Working there showed me how to deal with different Temperaments, Injuries, Grooming and how to gain trust as a confident but caring handler!

I have my own 3 dogs Kitty, Murphy and Phoebe all rescues!

As well as a Bearded Dragon "Rodney" and Tropical fish!

I have experience with Dog's,Aquatics, Cats, Ferrets, Rabbits and Birds!

I love volunteering with the Retired Greyhound Trust and Scottish Greyhound Sanctuary as much as possible! Which is where I helped foster Kitty now a member of the family xx

I am Fully Insured, Edinburgh council Dog walker registered, Vet Trained in Canine first aid and hold a Disclosure Scotland!

I look forward to hearing from you and meeting you and your pets soon!
