established in 1991 and was Edinburgh's first professional
dog walking service. It was set up by Brian Armstrong (an
ex-merchant seaman) with the help of the Government Enterprise
Allowance Scheme. The
business was so unique that it received press coverage in
publications such as the Evening News, the Herald and the
Scottish SPCA News.
that time Brian has gained invaluable experience of many breeds
of dogs including spaniels, retrievers, poodles, terriers,
collies, dalmations, alsations, dachshunds, labradors, boxers
and many marvellous cross breeds of all shapes sizes and ages.
has used the successful philosphy that dogs are pack animals
by nature. Every pack has a leader, known as the alpha animal.
The alpha is the boss who makes decisions for the entire pack
- obviously Brian is the alpha. All other members of the pack
form a hierarchy of dominance and submission, all dogs have
their place. Dogs are like their wolf ancesters, they are
very social and want to and enjoy being with their pack and
thrive on this companionship.
its beginnings 18 years ago with only a few dogs, Brian has
consistently provided a professional and reliable service
to many people and their dogs.
