Hi & Welcome to the DAWG House - secure exclusive use exercising field & coming soon a dog daycare facility offering home from home daycare for your furry friends.

Let us introduce ourselves. We are Lorraine Forsyth - Sam's Strolls & Natalie Jardine - miniVIPups and we are the joint proprietors of the Dawg house and will be the full time carers of your fur babies. We have vast experience with dogs from having our own as children and throughout our adult life as well as both currently running businesses that provide dog services.


There is nothing more satisfying than to see your pups run free, off lead and having the confidence that they are not going to come to any harm which is why the first stage of our venture will be to open the secure field for private rental by our clients and their friends. The field is bookable in 30 minute slots (£6.50 for up to 3 dogs & £1 per extra dog - max 8) however can also be booked for larger groups, for longer periods of time by separate negotiation.

We look forward to welcoming you & your friends to the field.


The daycare facility will open soon afterwards and will consist of the large, constantly manned, secure exercise area where your dogs can play whether it be with the outdoor toys or just run around with their friends and also inside there are several areas for the dogs to play in small groups, as we understand that not all dogs will necessarily get on with others - groups will be carefully selected through socialisation observations.


We will also have an area specifically for puppies until they are ready to join their older friends. There are lots of toys for the pups to play with which are interactive and will stimulate their body and mind.

Along with their outdoor activities your pup will be safely returned to you, tired and happy.

We both strive to give your pups a safe, secure and enriching experience whilst they are with us.


The complex is fully insured and we have worked closely with West Lothian Council & are a fully licensed daycare establishment.

We offer a pick up and drop off service, if you are unable to bring your fur babies to us. You can book either a half ( pick up/drop off 1pm) or full day ( 8am-6pm) for your pups to spend time with us.
