My puppy couldn’t socialize with any other dogs during the Lockdown and the Dog Den has immensely helped Bella become comfortable with other dogs. They also provide me with a full update after each visit.

The team at the Dog Den have been lifesavers!! They've taken extra care of Loki with his little paw injury and been very helpful and understanding. Very professional but also genuine dog lovers. When I drop Loki off in the mornings now Steve barely looks at me, he's too busy looking at Loki and patting him 🙂 All the team have been fantastic and it's taken a lot of stress from my current situation to know that Loki is in such a great place and he's so very happy there!
