But don’t just take our word for it - here’s what a few fans of ours had to say:
“It’s so important to have dog sitters and boarders these days - DogBuddy makes it easy for people to develop trusting relationships with their sitter and know their dog’s looked after” - Marc Abraham, TV Vet & PupAid founder
“Thanks so much DogBuddy, you guys are the best! Evie is really picky and you made it so easy - I’d recommend you to anyone!” - Dog owner & Made in Chelsea star
“I hate sending Mimi to kennels and prefer to board her where I know she’ll be safe and warm. DogBuddy gets my vote!” - Lauren Goodger, Dog owner & former TOWIE star
Remember - the DogBuddy app needs an internet connection to function. Your booking confirmation will be sent to the email address you provide when making your booking. The continued use of GPS may decrease battery life.

What's New in Version 5.8.1
This version solves a bug introduced in the previous one that was preventing most sitters from updating their calendar.
As a dog sitter, this version brings you an improved calendar. You can now tap on specific dates and view all booking requests in all statuses (even non confirmed ones). This helps you make better decisions when accepting bookings and gives you a quick snapshot of the dogs you will look after on any given date.
Update today for a fresh DogBuddy app!
Great experience with this app. Found ourselves a perfect family to look after our pup very last minute on a Sunday. They were very reliable and looked after our dog perfectly. The app is simple to use and even shows you where they have taken your dog for a walk. Easy to communicate via the app and can send pics and updates and so easy to find sitters etc by searching by postcode. I will definitely continue to use this app and highly recommend it!
Delete DogBuddy!!!! Exorbitant fees that milk both sitter and dog owner
Then they got greedy and started charging them 15% for every booking. They claim the 15% covers vet hotline and liability insurance. They claim that most dog owner insurance does not cover accidents when the dog is with the sitters. This is completely incorrect and misleading. Most dog insurance covers all of this. Just check with your provider.
If you are a regular user of the site, and especially if you use the same sitter each week, you will end up paying more for their booking fees (which they claim covers insurance) than if you got your own insurance. If you use them every week, their fees will roughly be 4-5 times monthly insurance premiums if you were to just buy good insurance.
No chance I'm paying them £60-100 per month for middleman fees. Smart users will figure this out soon and stop using the app.
It's like finding your partner on an online dating site and then continuing to pay a membership fee even after you get married to that person. Would you do that?
