Dog in the City has been looking after our dog Alfie for over one and a half years
Our dog is looked after daily every week and he also spends extended amounts of time boarding when we are on holiday up to two weeks at a time.
Alfie is always excited when Matthew appears at our front door in the morning and always comes back clearly looking like he has had lots of fun!
Matthew is always on time to pick up Alfie and we also trust him with a set of keys to our house. I would not hesitate in recommending Dog in the City to any of our friends.
Matthew and Dog in the City have been walking our dog, Poppy for the past two years.
Poppy is sadly deaf but Matthew takes extra care with her to ensure she's safe on her lead with other dogs.
She's also stayed with him on numerous occasions whilst we've been away on holiday too.
She looks so happy to see him when he collects her and is always shattered after her walks, clearly having too much fun with him!
He's never let us down and even leaves little treats for Poppy after he's dropped her off after walks”.
Dog in the City has been looking after our 'first born' Bruce for 5 days per week since December 2010.
We could not possibly be happier with the service received over this time. Matthew is reliable, trustworthy, friendly and above all adored by Bruce.
He has also been the key reason our dog is so well trained. We would recommend Matthew without a moment's hesitation and plan to keep Bruce 'in school' for a long time to come.
If anyone would like to speak to us to gain additional comfort, we will be more than happy to do so.
When we moved to London in 2010 the first question we asked our neighbourhood dog owners was 'Can you recommend a good dog walker?' The answer we got every time was "Matthew" call with last minute requests for additional walks and or over night care.
My Wife and I have a very busy lives that require a lot of travel and therefore a lot of flexibility from our pet sitter. Matthew has so often been a lifesaver for us when we call with last minute requests for additional walks and or over night care.
We are all so lucky to having found him.
Dog in the City has been looking after our Wirehaired Vizsla, Boo for over two years now, not only on weekdays but also at weekends and overnight when need be.
She always leaves with her tail wagging returns tired and happy!
Dog in the City is quick to spot any health or medical issues that become apparent with the dogs in their care (and to take action if necessary).
Matthew is a gregarious and reliable dog-walker and I would have no issue in recommending him to owners of any size of dog.
Dog in the City has shown a highly professional service, which allowed myself as a dog owner to feel completely at ease knowing my puppy is in very trusted hands.
Furthermore, Dog in the City has demonstrated flexibility around my schedule and genuine passion for the care of all dogs and I would be delighted to recommend their services.
"When I arrived in London, I had no idea where to leave Timmy when I was abroad. Someone recommended me Dog in the City and Timmy and I couldn't be happier!
Every time I leave him with uncle Matthew, I couldn't be more relaxed. I know Timmy will have a great time!"
Matthew from” Dog in the City” was originally recommended by my VET Dr.Maddie Bamford Village Vet Maida Vale as a reliable, dog loving person for my Dog Katie a standard Dachshund.
I can only say that the treatment of my dog was exemplary, she obviously was very happy with Matthew and also the other dogs.
In fact she was so happy that after the first time boarding with Dog in the City, the next time she couldn’t be quick enough to leave me.!! I can only highly recommend Matthew of Dog in the City.
I have been using Dog in the City for several years and have always found them to be reliable, personable and most importantly love dogs! Their pick up and delivery service is very convenient.
I have no problem trusting them with our Georgie and would definitely recommend Dog in the City to anyone needing a dog sitting service.
My family and I moved to London in the summer of 2010 with our dog, Bosco. The biggest worry we had when we arrived was whom we could trust looking after our most prized possession, Bosco.
We are ever grateful that we found Matthew from Dog in the City.
For the past 2.5 years we have used Matthew to care for Bosco while we are out of town and we have never been let down. Matthew always goes out of his way to make arrangements for us even when we call him last minute.
Matthew is friendly, accommodating and reliable. Most important though, we know that he loves and takes care of Bosco like we would. That means the world to us and provides us with great comfort and assuredness when we leave him.
I have known Matthew for 1 year, and he has looked after my Beagle puppy Scout during this year both on an occasional daily basis, and also for long extended periods whilst I’ve been on vacation, on one occasion for almost 4 weeks.
From my first meeting with Matthew, I immediately knew he was the right person to take care of my dog when I needed. He is a wonderful person, warm and loving and clearly loves animals very much. Scout took to him immediately and runs to the door when he hears him arrive, even though she knows it means she’s being taken away.
She really loves her time with him, is always happy and secure when with him and comes home fit and healthy after so many long walks on Hampstead Heath.
I would absolutely recommend Matthew to anyone as a dog minder. Your dog will be happy and safe with him.
I’m very happy to speak with you further if there is any other information you need.
I was personally recommended to Dog in the City over a year ago and have never looked back really.
I have three dogs, ranging from lulabelle who weighs 1.5k (very, very tiny) cross poodle and chihuahua, followed by Milly, Pomeranian and finally rescue dog Poppy who's is a chorky and extremely nervous of everything and everyone. I have never used anyone to walk or look after my dogs as they are totally members of the family and as they're sooo little I have always been worried. so everybody benefits.
It's a lovely feeling to know that when we're away the girls are going to a loving, seriously dog mad environment and that their every command, demand and wish is catered for. I have heard that Lulabelle (being so tiny) manages to escape from the kitchen and Matthew finds his feet extremely warm in the morning with a sleeping poochi lying on them under the duvet! That is something money cannot buy.
