“Quite frankly, Paul, George and Winston are our extended family. Paul has made absolutely every effort to boost the confidence of our extremely nervous rescue dog Boots and the different we see in him when he is back from daycare is stark. We will be forever touched at how much effort Paul makes to celebrate all his dogs birthdays with the most pawesome of pawties. We are extremely safety conscious and would trust no one else with our house keys.”

“As regular users of George & friends, we are incredibly appreciative of the fantastic, reliable and thoughtful service Paul provides. From the moment he, George and the lovely Winston arrive each day, it’s clear that Saffi is thinking “today is going to be a great day!”

Paul has created a caring and fun environment for each dog under his care, the individual birthday parties for each of the dogs are just one example of this. It’s a testament to Paul and his day care that we wouldn’t leave our dog with anyone else, honestly nowhere else competes (and yes, we had tried other day cares before this!). The one downside is that Saffi often wants to stay with Paul and her friends when it’s time to come home - we now don’t take it personally, it rather just sums up what a great place George and friends is!”

“Leaving my precious puppy Jack with George and Friends reminds me of how I felt when I used to leave my kids at nursery…Absolute confidence that he is in the best hands coupled with an acute sense of ‘He could at least pretend that he’s going to miss me!’. The care, affection and attention that Paul has for each and every dog is beyond words and Jack adores him right back. I feel very lucky as a new dog owner to have found such amazing day care right on my doorstep.”

“Paul and Anya have been looking after Twig, our two-year-old Cocker Spaniel, every week for over a year. He gets so excited when Anya comes to the door to pick him up it’s pretty obvious he has an amazing time. It’s fantastic to see videos of him running, swimming, rolling in the mud and eating doggy birthday cake each week, and he always comes home totally exhausted. After trying out a couple of other local dog walkers and daycare places, we wouldn’t want anyone else to look after him. And it seems that, when we meet George and Friends in the Downs on the way home from school, our daughter sees herself as part of the pack too!”

"We found out about George and Friends through a neighbour and Barefoot, our greyhound has been going out with Paul for around two years now. Paul, George and Winston are part of our pack now and Barefoot watches from the window for his pickup to go out and join his friends – he loves his days out with them.
And for us - We feel at ease knowing Barefoot is with Paul and having a great time. Over the years he has helped us with training Barefoot and making him feel at ease with other dogs. The Instagram update videos are a great way of keeping in touch from your work desk especially the birthday pawties."

Matthew, Pratchett's pawrent

“Pratchett is a very nervous rescue dog, that lacked socialisation with dogs and people. For the first couple years he has been scared of being around other dogs and even more with people and so he had been turned away from other dog walking companies. Which had me doubt he would improve, and left me not sure of how to proceed. Just a month before I met Paul, Pratchett had been hit by a cyclist and as a result he retreated backwards from the slow improve we had made. However, after meeting Paul and explaining Pratchetts situation, Paul was positive and enthusiastic about taking him on. After just a couple weeks, the improvement in Pratchett was amazing. His exposure to a group of diverse dogs and personalities, with the extreme care given by Paul and Anya - at George and Friends, really gave him his confidence to grow and now he is like a different dog. He openly greets dogs, is more trusting of people and all together a clearly happier boy. I love seeing daily videos of Pratchett with George and Friends and would recommend this great dog daycare to anyone after a charming little social group.”

“Bruno has been a regular with George and friends since he was just a tiny puppy. Paul has taken such amazing care of him since the beginning and undoubtedly had a real impact on how he has grown up into the happy dog he is today. From summer swims in Hackney Marshes to rainy walks in the cemetery, Bruno is kept so well entertained every time and is always super excited to see Paul in the morning. The effort that Paul puts in the caring for all the doggies, with birthday treats and much more besides, is awesome. We can even see from Instagram how much extra swag Bruno now has during his jaunts with the gang! We would recommend Paul and George & friends without hesitation - thank you!”
