Welcome to Holidays4Dogs in Scotland. We are delighted to be able to offer our services over much of Scotland and welcome more carers to join our team. We also offer opportunities working with Holidays4Dogs as an Area Coordinator in Edinburgh, Aberdeen or Glasgow. If you are interested in finding out more about local carers in your area or getting involved yourself do get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.
Our aim is to help you find the best possible personal care for your dog’s so that you can fully relax while you are away, whether on holiday or for work. Holidays4Dogs offers a range of fabulous local carers, who either have a sociable dog of their own for a holiday playmate or who no longer have a dog of their own and enjoy the company of visiting dogs.
All our carers are interviewed, fully audited and insured by us to operate to our high standards. They come from all walks of life and have experience with a great variety of different breeds of dog.
Please do not hesitate to contact us or register your interest here and we’ll be in touch!
Individual one to one holiday for your dog!
Whether your dog gets along with other dogs and would enjoy the company of the carers own dog or prefer to be the only dog in the home; we have approved carers to suit all. We only accept dogs from one household at a time per carer and never split same family dogs. Register your interest today and come and meet one of our local carers to see for yourself.
Scotland – a glorious place to stay!
Our Scotland carers offer a fully enclosed garden for your dog to roam under the carers watchful eye. They also love to get outdoors and have suitable walks right from the property, some very open countryside and some rural villages. Travel permission from you, and your dog can take in more of the walks available further. Alternatively, just hang out in one of our carer’s gardens – the scenery alone is enough to keep a doggy guest occupied for a whole holiday!
Part of the family and all home comforts
Every guest in our care is welcomed into the carers home and live with the carers family just as they would at home. All our approved carers are very experienced dog lovers and have time at home to look after your pet. Some carers no longer own a dog of their own, others own a sociable dog whom you’ll get to meet. All just love having regular guest dogs to stay and will welcome you and your dog with open arms!

My labrador was very happy when I picked her up. I could tell she had been well looked after and enjoyed her holiday in Cathy's lovely home and garden. I was sent messages about what Iris was up to while I was away which was much appreciated. Thank you so much Cathy and Holidays4Dogs. Hopefully Iris can stay with you again next year.

We were going on a family holiday but didn't have anyone to look after our dog, Alfie. We don't trust Kennels and wanted the dog to have the best care when we were on holiday. Holiday4Dogs paired me with a fantastic lady who took care of Alfie and really made us feel that he was loved just the same way as he is at home when we were on holiday. The whole process was very easy and pain free. I will definitely use again.

So very happy with the staff for their efficiency and helpfulness and their compassion when one of my best friends passed away. Thank you.
