I have known Billy for years now and he has looked after my cat, Rial and my flat in Edinburgh. Rial really enjoyed his company, and I think was sometimes a little sad to see me come home through the door instead. Billy was happy to feed and entertain him, and also for a time helped with administering medicine on a strict regime while I was working, which was a great weight off my mind.Since moving away from Edinburgh about 3 years ago he has also been able to pop into my flat between tenants to check on the place and since I put it on the market has been helping with viewings. I have met his own dog, who is a very happy, content and bouncy black lab and were I still living in Edinburgh would have no hesitation in asking Billy to walk my own dog.
Due to a change of circumstances, I found myself feeling guilty, as I was unable to spend enough time with my dog, Monty. Thankfully, my good friend Billy came to the rescue. Billy has always had at least one dog in his life, after all Billy’s upbringing saw him spend a lot of time in the Scottish Borders.
Monty and Billy quickly became the best of friends; Monty’s whole demeanour changed, it is as if he is a new dog! They are both explorers and soon discovered many of Edinburgh’s parks and green open spaces. Once Monty had settled in, Billy introduced Monty to his own dog Kylo, adopted via the Edinburgh Cat & Dog Home. Billy has been a wonderful influence on Monty, I can’t thank him enough for Monty’s new lease of life!
For the first time ever, we were in need of a dog walker for a period of two weeks and, thanks to Billy, it was easier than we ever could have imagined. Billy’s love of dogs is clear and our four year old female staffy, Olive, took to him immediately, as did we. Olive was given a good, long walk every day and this was obvious by her level of exhaustion every night. She was so well adjusted that it was very clear she was well cared for. When we occasionally see Billy out and about, you would think that Olive had found a long lost friend. Billy is trustworthy, kind and considerate and we have recommended his services to everyone we know. It was an entirely seamless experience and we will most definitely be calling on Billy again.
