@lizasperling you can use Rover.com, DogVacay and Wag - all are in SF. I know the team at Rover and know people who have used them. I am trying Wag for the first time this weekend. Tons of options, an increasing helpful and crowded space. :-)

This is cool! Too bad it's only UK based. Were you thinking about expanding it throughout Europe if it gets the traction you'd like?

Great to see this kind of service for the UK, already found a few potential local sitters for my unruly hound! Would be great to hear more about how they got started/built up this community?

@mikeharmer I love to hear you already found a sitter! We all love dogs and started the marketplace to extend and enhance dog ownership. Let me know if you want any specifics :)

Great project, getting more and more traction in Europe. I couldn't help it: Ain't No Buddy Loves Me Better (than Dogbuddy) ;)

I use DogBuddy every time we go on vacation or are going to be away overnight. It's so simple to use and there are lots of great sitters in our area. I love the user generated reviews for each potential sitter, this social proof makes you feel less nervous about someones credentials. That said we have also been the first to review a sitter and they were also great. I feel confident leaving Dele with my preferred dog buddies who have all been excellent. This service really has been a lifesaver for us. It's a great alternative to kennels and I can't recommend highly enough.

Pros:

Very easy to use. Lots of great sitters in our area. Lot of user generated reviews. Premium insurance in place.

Cons:

Would be great if sitters more regularly updated their availability calendar.
