About us

Carefree canines was created by husband and wife team Stuart and Nadine Kay after they realised that there wasn’t a safe reliable and flexible dog day care option available for there own dogs in the East Lothian area. Further investigation showed there was indeed a gap in the market for a safe flexible and professional dog care service.



At Carefree Canines we understand today’s busy lifestyles can make it difficult to give your dog the attention, exercise, training and mental stimulation that your dog needs. However the sad reality is that if your dog is being left at home alone for extended periods of time and deprived of exercise and social interaction then your dog may become lethargic, depressed or destructive. By their very nature, dogs are social animals and generally thrive best in a group, around humans and other dogs like them.

At Carefree Canines we understand your dog is part of your family, each dog is an individual with a unique personality and as such requires attention, exercise and socialisation opportunities when you can’t be there. At Carefree Canines we are committed to providing a clean, healthy, fun and nurturing environment for your dog while you’re away. This ensures that when you’re reunited with your four legged friend at the end of the day, you’ll enjoy the company of your happier, healthier, better-behaved dog, friend, companion and family member.
