Our Story

Normal photo 1513678479

DogBuddy began in 2013 when entrepreneur and dog lover, Richard Setterwall, struggled to find a sitter for his own dog, Luca. Needing to travel with work, but hating the idea of leaving Luca in traditional caged boarding kennels, Richard set about building the go-to service for connecting dog owners with dog sitters.

Today, we’ve grown to become Europe’s leading online dog sitting and home dog boarding service. Each month we help thousands of busy dog owners find reliable dog sitters to take care of their dogs so they can work, rest or play, knowing their dog is in a safe pair of hands.


"I started DogBuddy to help dog owners with a very real problem. I’m so proud to see how far we’ve come, and I’m even more excited to see what we can achieve together in the years ahead!" - Richard Setterwall, Founder & CEO

Meet DogBuddy

8 countries. 3 offices. 1 team.

With more than half a million users in eight European countries, and offices in London (HQ), Barcelona and Stockholm, over the past five years the DogBuddy pack has grown into a hard-working and fun-loving group of over 40 international individuals, from 12 different countries around the world.

London (HQ)

Our London HQ is situated between Kings Cross and Camden, just a short stroll from several mainline train and tube stations. Home to our CEO, CFO and many of our Marketing team, the office counts ASOS, Facebook, Google and YouTube as its neighbours.

Barcelona

Located just off Plaça Catalunya, our shiny new Barcelona office is home to our growing Engineering, Product, Customer Support, Sitter Success and Business Operations teams, as well as no less than seven regular office dogs too.

Stockholm

The DogBuddy Stockholm office opened in April 2016 and is home to our expanding Nordic Marketing team. Perfectly placed moments from Stockholm Central station, our Nordic hub is in the ideal location for fika with your teammates at plenty of local cafés.

A few DogBuddy Perks and Benefits

  • Dogs-friendly offices - proven to help reduce stress and make everything ten times cuter, your dog is always welcome to join you in the office.
  • Enjoy paid annual leave (plus all local public holidays) per year so that you can rest and relax; returning to work with your batteries recharged!
  • Holidays for your dog - we’re strong believers in “eating your own dog food”, so any team member with a dog gets 20 days of day care for their dog.
  • Bi-monthly socials - everything from dinner and drinks, to escape rooms and adventures!
  • Team breakfast every Monday morning, plus as much tea and coffee as you can drink.

What I love about working at DogBuddy is seeing how much we continue to grow year over year, and working on a well organised development team, that uses agile methodologies, and keeps up to date with the latest technologies.

I have been working for DogBuddy for almost 4 years and I have to say that it has been a pleasure! DogBuddy gives you the chance to grow whatever your job is, the role gives you lots of benefits and flexibility. In addition, we are like a small family and the work environment is excellent.

One of the things I love most about working here is that you can go from idea to execution very quickly. In other places I’ve worked, you would have to go through three tiers of management, consult five other department heads and hire a project manager. At DogBuddy, if you want to do something it’s like “great, let’s go do that now”. Oh, and there are dogs in the office. What’s not to love!

When I walked in for my interview I was met with a lick in the face by an adorable cocker spaniel puppy - I knew this was the place for me! I was intrigued and excited by the Company’s mission and couldn't wait to see where this company was heading - I really appreciate being given the freedom and confidence to develop and explore my own ideas.

Part of the pack

Being part of the DogBuddy pack means that you’re as excited and eager to:

  • Bring it to life - We’re never ones to shy away from hard work, often taking initiative and leaping into action; making sure that everyone does their bit to turn our ideas into reality.
  • Use your head - Before we leap, we like to take a brief moment to think things through - we don’t let this slow us down, but this helps to make sure that we’re all leaping in the right direction!
  • Deliver together - We believe that nobody can do it all alone, so we share in all the successes (and occasional failures) together - we celebrate and support each other in exciting or challenging times.
  • Do it with pride - If we’re not happy with what we’re doing, why should we expect thousands of dog owners and dog sitters who use DogBuddy every day to be? Whatever we do, we do it with pride.
  • Yes to challenges! - No day is the same; each day brings with it a whole new set of challenges. Risks don’t scare us - they present new and exciting opportunities for us to tackle head on.
