Dog Tired Testimonials

Dog Tired - What a find. A home from home run by a caring family who love dogs. We highly recommend. Now we look forward to our holiday breaks - and Jen's too.

" Sandra and Mike have been walking my German Shepherd, Tess, for almost nine months and I am highly delighted with the professional and reliable service they run. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are always available, even at short notice and weekends and have never let me down. Tess enjoys her walks and is always left tired and content, having been dried off and given a treat. A report card of the walk is left and a text message sent confirming that the dog has been walked and how she behaved. Sandra and Mike are genuine dog lovers, that was apparent on meeting them for the first time. When going on holiday, I do not intend to use kennels again and will board Tess with Sandra and Mike."

Sandra & Mike Ferguson - saved our lives!!  I had just been discharged from hospital and unable to look after Maddie (our 7 year old Bearded Collie) when my wife fell and broke her ankle. As a result we called “Dog Tired” more in hope than expectation. Immediately Mike and Sandra took control and assured us that they would look after Maddie and keep her as long as necessary. She had never been away from home before. From the start we received pictures, texts, emails, phone-calls in fact every conceivable type of re-assurance that Maddie was not only ok but in fact enjoying herself.The love and care that Mike and Sandra gave to Maddie was quite exceptional and it has to be said not expensive. Maddie was with them for almost 8 weeks and has returned to us the same loving affectionate healthy well cared for dog that left under such distressing circumstances. Few dog owners don’t love or miss their dog when apart however if that dog is with “Dog Tired” for whatever reason you can relax in the knowledge that it could not be in better hands.

Contacting Sandra around 6 months ago has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I think all dog owners, at some point, have experienced the stress of juggling work and looking after their pet. Sandra& Mike have taken that stress away by being there 24/7, always ready to look after my dog Bella who is a weimaraner. They are genuinely the most kind, honest people you will meet who make you feel that you are their only client. Bella gets so excited to see Sandra, and especially her own dogs Oscar & Tyson as they love to play with each other. I can’t recommend Dog Tired enough and I guarantee you won’t look back as you will be in the knowledge that your pet is in safe loving hands with them.

I am delighted with the service provided by Sandra & Mike and would be happy to recommend them to anyone. I know Bonnie loves her time with them and I look forward to reading her ‘Report Card’ when I get home. Thank you so much to all at Dog Tired.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Suzanne, Troon 



Dog Tired Ayrshire has proved to be a very reliable, trustworthy and professional service. My puppy Daisey has been exceptionally well cared for since she was 8 weeks old and I would highly recommend Sandra and team to any pet owners seeking this type of service. Thanks for giving me peace of mind.

Dog Tired is a professional and reliable service. From our first meeting with Sandra we knew our dogs Delta and Chip would be well looked after when in their care. We now use Sandra and Mike on a regular basis and we have recommended them to other pet owners. Delta and Chip look forward to their walks with them. Thank you.

My energetic black Labrador loves Sandra and gets so excited when she arrives to take him in her van for a fun walk on the beach or golf course. It is great peace of mind knowing he is well walked and looked after. He is so content after his walks and I know he's had a great time. Sandra is reliable, trustworthy and flexible - she has been so accommodating even at short notice. Having Dog Tired has been great for both me and my happy dog.

Dog Tired is a super dog walking service. Sandra loves all her dogs and offers a personal service every visit, is very flexible and available at short notice. I don't know what I would do without them, my dog loves it! I am sure he counts the time till Sandra's next visit!

If it were not for Sandra and Dog Tired we would not have gone away on holiday. The level of service is second to none. Axel is always happy to see Sandra for walks and we have used the home boarding service on more than one occasion. A fantastic loving family business.

We have a young German Shepherd and on seeing that  Dog Tired Ayrshire has experience with GSDs we contacted them. The level of professionalism and expertise is fantastic. We make regular bookings and know our beloved pet is in safe and trusted hands. We have no hesitation in recommending Sandra. Thank you!


                                                                                                                                                                   Claire, Troon



On our first  booking with Sandra we were able to enjoy a full family day out in the knowledge that our dogs would be well looked after. Since then we use Dog Tired Ayrshire regularly and with high recommendation. Keep up the good work!

Great service. I was able to go away knowing that my pet was going to be well cared for by Sandra. I will definitely be using Dog Tired Ayrshire again and have already recommended Sandra to other pet owners. Many thanks.

I have total confidence and can relax knowing my pet is being well looked after and enjoying his walks. He loves Sandra at Dog Tired Ayrshire and makes a big fuss of her each time he sees her.

Dog Tired has proved to be a fantastic service in Ayrshire. Sandra has a great relationship with our chocolate labrador Scarlett and our in-laws dog Millie. The dogs love her and we are all very comfortable and secure that our dogs are in safe and competent hands. Sandra is very flexible and has helped us out on several occasions at short notice. It is great stress relief to know that our dogs are well cared for by somebody who has a genuine interest and fondness for dogs. I can't recommend Dog Tired Ayrshire highly enough.

We have 2 Labradors who love Tuesdays when their Auntie Sandra takes them for a walk. They have a great time with their friends. We come home knowing that our dogs have been exercised but, more importantly, have been well cared for. Sandra's attention to detail is wonderful. We always look forward to reading what our dogs have been up to. The service that Dog Tired provides is of the highest quality, we can't praise it enough.
