About Marsha

Hi everyone, I'm Marsha. I recently moved to Melbourne to escape the Scottish rain and try dog walking/sitting in a slightly nicer climate!

For nearly eight years I have ran my own dog walking business back home in Edinburgh. I can wholeheartedly say it has been the best, most rewarding job I've ever had. The bonds I formed with my dogs, and clients alike, will be cherished forever.

Over my eight years I have worked with lots of breeds, and characters! From training puppies, to walking elderly dogs, doing 'Adventure Days' in fun spots and carrying out my Canine First Aid course, I have gained a wealth of experience.

I'll be offering dog walking services to begin with while me and my partner settle into the city. Once we have a permanent place, my home is your dog's home for sleepovers 😊. I would ask for all dogs to be vaccinated.

I will collect your pup and we'll go on foot for fun walks. I'm happy to do whatever duration that would be suitable for your dog. I'll of course always carry water and plenty of treats! I'm happy to do group walks (max 3 dogs per group) or if you'd prefer solo walks that's no problem either. I can do basic training with pups.

I have flexible availability as I understand every dog and everyone's schedule is different. Please don't hesitate to get in touch for my walking or sitting services, I'd be more than happy to fit things around you and your pup.

After years of walking dogs in the Scottish weather, I’d love to meet their Aussie equivalents under warm southern skies ☀️.

Marsha was brilliant with our sometimes anxious 2 year old Labrador Retriever Hallie.

Hallie warmed to Marsha straight away at our first meeting which made us feel comfortable leaving her in Marsha's care, while we were away Marsha sent us updates and photo's of her adventures with Hallie which was lovely.

We would highly recommend Marsha to anyone looking for a petsitter or walker.

Marsha was a star! Dogs were spoilt rotten with lots of adventures and attention. Marsha kept us updated with photos and left the house spotless.

Familiar with dog training techniques
Over seven years of dog walking I’ve worked with an array of breeds. Some tiny, some huge, some angels and some that needed a wee bit of guidance! I have worked with reactive dogs and dogs with high prey/scent drives. With these factors in mind, I’d do my very best to make sure the walks were safe and enjoyable. I met the majority of my dogs at around the 8-10 week stage, the absolutely adorable puppy stage! From there we slowly built trust, worked on commands, socialised once vaccinated and gradually worked our way from small walks to one hour group walks.
