‘What can I say, Andrea is amazing with our pooch Smudge! From being completely reliable and trustworthy, to the simple fact I think Smudge likes her more than me sometimes! Would recommend her 100% and have already done so! Smudge’s behaviour has improved tenfold, and we work together with commands so that he is following them even when I say them! Any issues I have had with his behaviour she has helped me with some one-on-one training and I am proud to say we have a well-behaved pup. On the odd occasions Smudge has had a little health problem she has been a star and always lets me know if she notices anything I haven’t and will put my mind at ease when I freak out about something I do notice! I honestly couldn’t recommend Andrea any higher, we have tried doggy day care centres and just prefer the personal touch she brings to her job. We love her and whats more is, Smudge does, and if he is a happy little chappy then so are we!’ –Lucy Dunlop
We have known Andie for a couple of years now and it is safe to say that we could not recommend her more highly, both as a dog walker and general doggy guru!
It is so great to know that we can leave Cocoa with someone we trust completely, whether for a walk or to stay with when we go on holiday, I’m never worried and Andie always puts loads of pics up so we know Cocoa is perfectly happy! She absolutely adores Andie and the wee pack Andie looks after and usually comes back a bit better behaved as an added bonus!

We cannot recommend Andrea highly enough. When Maud started at Four Seasons I presumed we would just be getting a dog walking service but we have received so much more. She is so kind and patient with Maud (and me!). She has trained Maud to show good manners and the socialisation has been wonderful. Andrea also offers fab extra services such as extra hours onto the walk if we are busy with work and is always available to answer general dog queries. As an inexperienced dog owner her reassurance and knowledge have been indispensable. Maud is so happy and calm with Andrea and we get some lovely pictures as well through her useful blog and website. Andrea is completely reliable and goes far beyond in terms of her care for Maud. I have recommended Andrea to friends in the past and would definitely continue to do so. – Claire Dancer
‘When I decided that it was time for me to go back to work, my biggest worry was getting a dog walker for my 1 year old cockerpoo, Ella, who from birth was a very shy little puppy. I came across Andrea’s advert on Gumtree and when we met up for a walk and a chat I knew that the Four Seasons set up would be just right.
Archie and Geena, our chocolate Labradors, have a favourite auntie who they see once a week. Andie is not just their dog walker, she is their best friend. We know that she really cares about all the dogs in her charge and knows all of their personalities. She is knowledgeable and treats each of them as an individual.
She is 101% trustworthy, and even moved into our home to look after Archie and Geena when we went on holiday to New Zealand. We were able to relax and enjoy our break, as we were able to follow what was going on via her blog, knowing that they were getting the best of care. When we returned the dogs didn’t seem too bothered to see us, but kept looking to see where Andie had gone. Even now, when she comes to pick them up for their walk, they can’t control their excitement.
Andie has even taken Archie to the vet’s when he secretly managed to eat half a sack of dried dog food.
We think that anyone who gets Andie to walk or look after their dogs should consider themselves very lucky as she is one in a million.

In short; Andie has been a revelation. It isn’t just the fact that
the dogs receive a great walk, in some of the most dog friendly areas
of the city, it’s that Andie goes the extra mile to train the dogs.
Giorge’s behavior has improved greatly, especially his recall, which
used to be patchy in wide open spaces. The walks, swims and games are
undoubtedly enjoyed by the dogs, as Giorge is always happy and relaxed
in the evenings. In case you ever wondered what your dog was up to
during the day, Andie makes you feel part of the fun by taking
hilarious photos of the gang together. It makes it easier having to
leave Giorge for the day knowing that he’ll be meeting Andie and his
buddies come lunchtime. – Rees & Kate Hughes
Andie loves dogs – that is true! Her love shines through her sweet relationship with Louis, our labradoodle. She started walking Louis when he was a cheeky adolescent. Now, he’s almost 3 and Louis is a super laid-back labradoodle who looks forward to his engaging walks with Andie and the pack! Thanks, Andie, love Louis xx – Leanne Gassert
We have been customers of Four Seasons for about 18 months and we could not be more delighted with the service. We chose Four Seasons because it was clear the dogs would get a proper walk (up a hill or along a beach) and we needed walks on a flexible basis and since then our super energetic Labrador –Retriever cross Molly has got to hang out in Andrea’s pack at least once a week. We know Molly loves her time with her friends because she goes bananas when she gets picked up and there have been a few occasions we have walk past Andrea’s car and she has tried to jump in! We love seeing the photos of Molly having adventures with the pack and I bet Molly wishes it was every day!- Claire, Sean and Molly.
Andie has been walking our dog Colin for over a year and a half and we couldn’t be happier with the service. She is very friendly but also professional and we know that Colin loves his walks with her and the pack. We are flexi customers and Andie can nearly always accommodate our requests. She is easy to get in contact with and we love being able to see and hear about the walks through the blog and Facebook page. The videos she has made of all the dogs she walks were very sweet too! We would definitely recommend Andie to new customers. – Sheena Hardie
‘Hi Andrea…we just wanted to say congratulations on making the dog sitting “hobby’ a proper business, we know how great you are with the dogs and how much they seem to love you!
You have looked after Marvin during our holidays during the last two years and we can honestly say that he does not want to come back in his own house or even say hello to us when you drop him back home…ungrateful little mutt….
As you know we really don’t want to leave him in a boarding kennel, he would probably die of heartbreak thinking he had been abandoned, and there are no close friends or family that live in in Edinburgh – even then we wouldn’t trust most of them to look after the dog! – and you are the only person that we would consider leaving Marvin with…apart from Jose, our Spanish friend but he has known departed Glasgow to live in Las Palmas….
Quite simply, No Andrea; No holidays for the humans!
Good Luck and lots of love x’
