The dog bus offers a completely reliable and professional service and I am totally relaxed knowing my house keys are in safe hands. Dexter has been part of the ‘gang’ since a puppy and John’s training knowledge was an absolute bonus as he improved Dexters recall 100% in the first few weeks. Dexter has always enjoyed his days out and he’s absolutely exhausted when he arrives home.

John and the team are really flexible, even when I text asking if they can accommodate Dexter last minute! I would highly recommend the dog bus to anyone looking for a dog walker or home boarding – it’s great to know your pet is in the safe hands of someone who loves dogs, even if yours can be a bit excitable!
