Established in 2018, Dog Scouts is a small, friendly, dog walking service run by me, Ian, with the help of my wife Elena and my trusty lakeland terrier, Chico.

Based in Kirkintilloch, I offer group and individual walks around Lenzie, Bishopbriggs, Kirkintilloch and Torrance as well as puppy visits.

I have previously worked as an outdoor and watersports instructor, responsible for a team of instructors and groups of up to 120 kids.

I'm an ex scout leader so I know the importance of making sure that everyone in the group has a great time and is safe and well under my supervision. My experience means that I'm always well organised and in control of the group.

I've always loved long walks with my dogs and I quickly build up strong relationships with any dogs under my care. I believe in reward based training and never get annoyed with a dog. 

If a mishap should occur, I'm trained in dog first aid and I always have the first aid kit to hand. 

I'll keep you up to date with your dog's activities by posting regular photos and videos and even a dogs-eye GoPro video. 

My aim is to make sure that your dog has a fun, safe time and comes home fully excercised and ready to relax. I also make sure that your dog is mud free and towel dried before getting back into your house.
