Good barks travel fast

The best way to really understand if the dog bus does a good job is to read our customers reviews.

  • Best doggy day care on the planet. The team is lovely and all very professional, the dog LOVES going on the Dog Bus. Great for socialisation and for burning off his energy.

  • We started using the dog bus a few weeks ago for our 5 month old pup, Claude. I’ve been very impressed from the start. John came to the house to meet Claude and was great. We use the bus a few times a week and Claude comes back exhausted and happy which means we can chill! I love the report card, and the Facebook pics and I know Claude loves his time with the bus. Thank you ! Excellent service.


  • Wonderful team look after our dog 3 times a week and he is so excited to see them in the morning! So no doubt he loves his dog bus days
    Report card at the end of the day letting me know what he’s been up to and who he’s played with is great too!


  • Great service, great guy, reliable and friendly, thanks.


  • The Dog Bus must be every dog's dream. Being able to spend time resting in comfort on the bus before the next walk, means time is not wasted picking up and dropping off the dogs, but time can instead be utilised to go to and explore other dog walking spots. Our dog Tess loves it, and if the dogs are happy, so are the owners!


  • The Dog Bus Team are great Alfie loves every minute of it from leaving the house its great you get to see what they get up to throughout the day on Face Book with the photos he is so tired when he gets back which is great with him being a Lab! I really recommend The Dog Bus to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy dog walking service!

  • Ivy loves the dog bus every day, despite only being small she has a LOT of energy and I know I can guarantee she will have lots of fun with her friends on new adventures whilst we are at work. The Dog Bus provides us with details of where she's been that day and who she has played with as well as her energy levels…always lots! I couldn't recommend a better dog walking service, friendly, reliable, great value for money and most of all my dog has the best time..

  • As working dog parents with two lively playful dogs we can't think of a better experience to keep our dogs occupied when we're at work than the dog bus! They love being outside especially around water… and we love hearing about their adventures in the daily ‘school reports'. When we have been around for pickup's we've seen the mad reaction and how much our dogs love going!

    They were also great about our concerns with one dogs recall keeping us informed and have let us know when they've seemed out of sorts. We can't thank John and Julie enough!

  • Sonny has had so much fun on his adventures with the dog bus! He gets to explore lots of new areas and socialise with other dogs and is given a report card at the end of the day to share all his fun. He is much better off the lead now and with recall just from the few months that he's been going, he loves his walks with all the gang.

    The dog bus team are caring and reliable and can be trusted to meet all his needs, even helping out when Sonny needed medicine administrating. Nothing has been too much trouble when I've needed help. A great big thank you to the team, Sonny can't wait for his next play time!

  • After just one week with her new friends, it's clear that Kayla is having so much fun. The service is great with pick ups and drop offs being critical for us as full time workers. Great value.


  • Daisy and Milo absolutely love going on The Dog Bus. I know this because when I work from home I can see their anticipation waiting for the “bus” to arrive (floor pacing and window watching) and then excited yelps of joy when the bus actually does arrive! They can’t get out of the door quick enough basically…

    I too love The Dog Bus, because I totally trust John, Julie, Kayleigh and the team to look after my dogs brilliantly and I have very happy and exercised dogs at the end of the day. The team have patiently looked after my two rescues and they aren’t the easiest pair… neither are used to playing, group walking or being “pets” but all the team have patiently worked with them and welcomed them into the gang with real positive results and I really do appreciate that. I think this team simply go the extra mile for all their dogs and that ethos is so rare.

    I would recommend The Dog Bus to anyone (and do regularly) because I think they are a fantastic team with the best offering in the Altrincham area and at a competitive price….so thank you Dog Bus!

  • My Weimaraner Saphi has been going on the Dog Bus for the last 12 months and what a difference it has made to both our lives!

    Saphi gets plenty of fun and exercise, which is just what she needs and more importantly she gets to socialise with other dogs. Her behaviour at home has improved by leaps and bounds, she no longer jumps up at visitors or barks at the postman.

    John, Julie and all the team at The Dog Bus are very knowledgable and always go that extra mile to meet mine and Saphi's needs. Well done, I can't imagine life without you guys!


  • Hi my names Harvey, I’m a very happy Cavapoo.

    I’ve been going on the dog bus for a year now. I have so much fun, I wear myself out chasing all my friends!! Mummy knows how much I love, it cause in the morning if she works at home I sit at the window, waiting for the bus to come. Then yap with excitement at the fun that’s about to begin.

    I love John, Julie and the gang, their part of my big family and now I can stay with them for longer now they’ve got the depot


  • The Dog Bus is great for us – and most importantly our dog Baxter agrees! He gets a long walk (he is always tired the evening of a Dog Bus day!), socialises with other dogs and knows the walkers very well. The Dog Bus has never let us down and has been really good when we have needed last minute help.


  • From the moment I googled dog walkers and I searched a few! The only one that really caught my eye was the ‘dog bus’ loved the concept and wanted my new rescue Kai the springer spaniel the best care on her arrival into our home. John came along and met us both, chatted through what he does, brought all his certs along and to be honest we hit it off.

    Kai loves him and the team and it would not have been possible to have her without their help. They don’t just walk, they care!!! They have a good timetable of events; John has come back and let my other springer out if she was at home… He looks after Kai like she is his own.

    I would never go anywhere else and would seriously recommend him and the team. I love the report card that I have left for me every time she has been out for a walk and I love the fact that John will ring me to discuss anything he may have a concern with. It’s just a quality service with a caring touch. Kai loves her walks, she loves the gang and is always up to something.
    Try them they are fantastic!


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!
