Our story

About Us - Founding Team - Rafael Lopez, Jessie Akkermans, Julien de Waal - Doggies in Town

Hello and welcome!

We are Rafael, Jessie & Julien, the founders of Doggies in Town.

We started Doggies in Town when discovering that so many dog owners like us wanted to spend more time with their dogs but simply couldn’t because they didn’t know which stores, restaurants, hotels among other places were dog friendly. Often, they’d have to leave their dogs outside waiting for them or leave them home alone.

We thought to ourselves, why is there no app to
discover places where our dogs are welcome?

This is how Doggies in Town was born. We wanted to create one amazing app for dog owners to easily find dog friendly hotels, accommodations, restaurants, bars, shops, parks, beaches, activities, dog services & products.

We hope you´ll enjoy more moments with your dog thanks to our app, the only app you and your dog will ever need!

Our mission

Bringing everyday smiles to the lives of dogs and dog owners by offering the best range of dog friendly places, activities, events, dog products and services.
