We provide care for your pets as if they were our own, and ensure that they receive the highest quality care while you're away. I have been around dogs for the majority of my life. From my earliest days surrounded by the German shepherds my grandfather bred, family pets growing up  to owning my own dogs through adult hood. I've attended many training classes giving me a considerable amount of experience in handling them.We also have considerable experience caring for many other small pets including cats, rodents, reptiles and chickens to name a few. So you can feel reassured that we can reliably care for your pets.
We are fully insured, studied dog grooming at Pamper Grooming Academy to City & Guilds level 2 ,achieved Higher Distinction Level 3 Award in Animal Care, completed a course in pet first aid & CPR, Dog Behaviour & Psychology + How To Train a Puppy.

Some of the things we offer.

We understand life can be busy and complicated, which is why we provide a variety of services to make things easier on you and your furry family. Take a look below to see what we offer and contact us with any questions.


Dog grooming. 

All breeds catered for.


​Bathing & Drying - helps maintain coat condition & removes dead, loose hair
De-matting - removal of matts from the coat without discomfort or distress to the animal
Clipping & Trimming - a choice of styles to ensure your pet looks his/her best
Teeth De-scaling & Cleaning - without the need for anaesthetic, helping prevent gum disease & tooth loss
Nail Trimming (either clipping or grinding) - essential to prevent broken nails & discomfort when walking

Hand stripping - this removes the old loose coat, leaving the new body coat behind. If however you clip the dog all over, you cut the old hairs, leaving their roots within the follicles of the skin. This can irritate the dog and be a primary cause of eczema in a terrier.

NEW Madra Mor Shed Safely Mud treatment - this is a deep cleaning, sweet smelling mud bath, that flows with hydrating omega oils and is pumped full of B vitamins to help relieve and prevent excessive shedding. Quench in hydration as often as needed, ideal for thick coats! Great for all shedding dogs.

Bookings can be made outwith normal working hours at no extra charge.

Pick up and drop off available within Bo'ness area for additional £5.

Whether it’s their first home boarding experience, or they’re seasoned regulars, their wellbeing is central to everything we do.We are not kennels, we only take in one customers dog/s at a time (with very occasion overlap) in order to give them the care you'd expect. Your pet is cared for in the family home and treated like our own. They will have their own area to sleep but rest of the time will be spent with the family. Minimum of 60 minutes exercise per day.
