“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

Ratings and Reviews
Easy to use app. You’re quickly able to find local dog walkers/sitters and their profiles include honest reviews from previous customers which is very helpful. All enquiries and updates are kept within the App but I had quite a limited choice in my area which is quite frustrating. However, I struck gold on on first dog walker/sitter booking. We are now using the same lady on a regular basis. She’s fantastic, experienced & knowledgeable especially with rescue dogs. My dog is always excited & happy to see her & loves the walks they go on & she varies the locations she goes to. All our updates have included pictures which is lovely. I highly recommend it. I don’t many Apps but I love this one.

Hi lovingrescue, we're glad you like the app!
Great App and Website
I’ve had a really great experience setting up as a Dog Sitter with DogBuddy. The App and Website make it really easy to communicate with clients and collect all the information I need for the dogs I’m looking after. DogBuddy takes care of connecting me with clients and handles the money side of things seamlessly so all I have to do is focus on looking after the dogs. The help you get when starting is great, everything is explained and it’s very reassuring to have help at hand 24/7 and to know I’m fully insured. I’m absolutely loving doing this full time, and have been pretty much fully booked since I began. I would highly recommend DogBuddy!

Love this app
My job means I never know when I’m going to be at home or working away so this is a great app to help me book last minute care for my little four legged friend. We have got a regular dog sitter who is incredible. The fact it includes insurance is perfect as it takes away any risk for both us and the sitter. My only gripe is as a regular user it would great if I could pay an annual fee for the insurance rather than on a per session basis as I’m sure it would work out a bit cheaper for me. But as an app and the people we have used through it I couldn’t ask for more.
