Dog Tired

  Professional Dog Walking, Home Boarding & Pet Sitting Services

Dog Tired Ayrshire is a professional dog walking and pet sitting services company based in Troon including Home Boarding and Day Care. It was formed out of a lifetimes desire to work with dogs, having been brought up in childhood around Shetland Sheepdogs then for the past 33 years being the proud owner of German Shepherd Dogs. For as far back as we can remember we have always wanted a career based around dogs so following on from life changing medical treatment, Sandra decided that it was the right time to grab the opportunity to fulfil her heart's desire. Having previously always been in employment for other people or organisations and having dogs, we are fully aware of how difficult it can sometimes be to make sure your beloved pet is not left alone for lengthy periods without a walk or toilet break. We have had our share in the past of racing home on our lunch hour to take the dogs out or clear up the mess they have made from chewing the house!! Now we are in the enviable position of being able to spend quality time with our own precious dog and take some of the pressure away from your own working demands by taking care of your dog whilst you are at work.


We have experience of friendly, sociable and non-sociable, nervous, excitable, aggressive, and just plain laid back dogs.  We will walk dogs from small to large in a maximum of 4 dogs per group.  We also offer a transportation service, which is carried out in one of our  fully professionally crated vans, to a veterinary/grooming or training appointment. We also offer a pop-in service to feed or administer medication to your pet.


Dog Tired is a member of NARPS (which is the National Association of Registered Pet Sitters) and are the holders of both an up-to-date Disclosure Scotland Certificate and full Public Liability Insurance.   We are also Licensed by the local Council for Home Boarding and Day Care of dogs. Please do not hesitate to ask for sight of these important documents at our first consultation.


We carry out regular daily walks or on an as required basis. We will pop-in to attend to your puppy's toilet needs or if you have a bitch in season that is unable to be walked. We carry out pet sitting in your own home for cats. When our walk or visit is complete we leave you with the assurance that your pet has had first class treatment and attention and provide you with an appropriate 'Report Card' detailing our activities for the day.


As each dog's/pet's needs are tailor made to suit their requirements prices will vary so please see our Pricing page or contact us for a competitive costing.


As we understand that an increasing number of people work various shifts a service outwith the usual 9am-5pm and also weekend work can be offered, by arrangement.


If you don't have a dog we also provide a service for other pets including cats, guinea pigs, hamsters, birds, fish etc. Please contact us for more details.


All of us at Dog Tired believe that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance and we are committed to meeting those needs. 

We would welcome the opportunity to earn you and your pet's trust and will deliver you the best service and attention at all times.
