Every morning between 8am and 10am, six vans drive around well-heeled areas of London picking up labradors, spaniels and pugs from lawyers, teachers, MPs and celebrities. Captain Colin, a feisty pug in a glittery collar, belongs to comedian Russell Kane.
After a busy day haring around a field, the dogs are delivered home between 4pm and 6pm.
They have personal report cards that inform their owners of their pick-up and drop-off time, and include a few snippets about their day.
‘Dempsey had a really good day at the farm enjoying her time with friends. In the afternoon we went for a lovely walk in the woods. She also had a little nap.’ You get the gist.
Scottie News knows what you’re all wondering — how much does it cost? £25 a day or US$40. And for even more, you can get special obedience and agility lessons.
Halo Dogs’ peeps can also check out the atmosphere on videos posted on YouTube. Dexter the Scottish Terrier appears to be something of a loner, going about his business happily enough, but mostly on his own.
Update: A reader just let me know I posted the wrong video. It’s been corrected.
