The best way to really understand if a service provider does a good job is to read their customers reviews. So The Dog Bus team asked some of our customers what they thought of our services.

Here is what they said….


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!


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.

George & Poppy

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!


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.


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!


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!


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!

Daisy and Milo

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!


‘We are delighted with the professional service provided by the dog bus team. I'm sure Kenji looks forward to Monday morning, the door bell rings and he's up and running out the house to see his pals. Happy dog = stress free day care. I couldn't ask for more.'


I can honestly say that each time I have to leave for work, I thank my lucky stars for John, Julie and the rest of the team on the Dog Bus. It's not easy leaving your precious four-legged family member in the hands of someone else (the same can be said of your house keys) but we relax knowing we're leaving them both in capable hands.

Floss isn't really the most sociable of dogs, much preferring to tag along with human rather than canine company, so walking, playing and socialising with an understanding team is excellent for her. She comes home tired and happy, and one happy dog = one happy us.

The Dog Bus is dependable, excellent value, and flexible, often accommodating extra days above our norm when necessary. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them.


Ivy loves the dog bus everyday, 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..


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 through out 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 !


When we first moved to the area we really struggled to find a dog walker that worked for us, many were full, needed a number of weeks notice, could only do certain days and most importantly…had a maximum time of 1hour.

With Peppa being true to her breed (crazy springer spaniel) we needed that little bit extra….the dog bus! We called on the Wednesday, had a meet and greet by the Saturday and Peppa was all ready to go by the following Monday! The dog bus, are an incredibly friendly team, and offer a very flexible high quality service, as we work shifts we try to book Peppa in around our shifts, so the days change each week.

We love coming home to a very happy tired dog, knowing she's had a great day socialising with her furry pals! We particularly like the personalised messages letting us know what she's been up to that day, and enjoy looking at all the pictures that are uploaded from the walks.


We have been using The Dog Bus over a year, always on time and reliable, always helpful when we need extra help. Buzz loves them. Great service, keep it up.

Thank you very much,


We have been using the Dog Bus for nearly a year (well Dixie has) and we have been very impressed. Dixie loves going to see all her friends and usually can't control her excitement everyday! She enjoys going on different adventures and we enjoy reading all about it on her report card. Thank you to all at Dog Bus for providing such a wonderful service!


The Dog Bus provides a fantastic dog walking service.

John, Julie and the team work exceptionally hard and with boundless energy to provide a caring and stimulating environment for the dogs.

They are sensitive to each dog's individual needs and it is obvious how much they care about all the dogs they look after.

It is such a great comfort for us to know that Tess is in very good hands with The Dog Bus team.


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


When we very suddenly had to take Pleun into our family, John, Julie and the Dog Bus team came to the rescue. We thoroughly enjoy reading about Pleun's adventures with the gang via the yellow postcards. Overall, we are very impressed with the care she receives; she even had a holiday from us through the Dog Bus team! Great many thanks all .
