Dog Owners

Professional Dog Businesses UK helps dog owners to find the best care for their beloved dog. 

This service is FREE.

All the businesses listed on our website are Insured, Licensed, Qualified, Trained and Experienced in relation to the service they are providing. 

The dog industry has exploded with many businesses providing a dog service, however many of these are not professional, for example they are not insured or even qualified. The dog industry is very unregulated. 

I set this business up with the aim of helping to make the canine industry more regulated and therefore to incease dog welfare. 

We are on Facebook and Instagram if you would like to follow all our professionals. 

Below are some guidelines to follow.

For the best care of your dog select one of our professionals in the service areas above. 

If you have any questions please feel free to send me an email: info@professionaldogbusinessesuk.co.uk. You are also welcome to post on our Facebook page for recommendations/advise and I am sure one of our professionals will be happy to advise.
